I am just wondering since many people on this site say that if someone wants to get married or in a relationship, they should work on their psychological problems, and I assume the same is needed if you are entering the priesthood or religious life (i know they do have tests to see if you have mental issues if you are entering the priesthood).
Well what if someone has such huge struggles with this that they can't lead a life, or even if they can live a normal life, can't live out one of the two vocations (i'm starting to feel like singlehood isn't a vocation unless you are consecrated, though not completely convinced yet). For example if someone struggles with BiPolar disordered, are they unable to have a vocation? Or people with Aspergers or Manic Depression or similar disorders.
It just seems sad to me to deny a person having a vocation just because of something that they couldn't help like a chemical imbalance or a brain disorder. I understand you want to be mentally stable in marriage or in the religious life or priesthood, but are those who suffer with mental illness just supposed to be left out of god's plan. Are they to just sit in church and feel alone while others are married or serving god's purpose as a priest nun or brother while they are in the "temporary state" of singleness?
I really need some enlightenment in this area. Thanks and God Bless:)
