For All Struggling with Trusting God

For All Struggling with Surrendering to God

Ever since my older brother took his life at the age of 17 (I was 15), I have suffered from generalized anxiety disorder and a food addiction. Medication has never worked for me and always makes my anxiety and depression worse. I have been in and out of therapy for years. 12 years ago, after I injured my spine, was the first and only time, up until now, that I became seriously depressed and overcome with anxiety.

So I voluntarily admitted myself to 2 different hospitals for this mental anguish. The first hospital was a nightmare and I was released after 6 days. The second one was wonderful, a hospital for eating disorders. I had a longer stint there and I got well! (That program has now moved elsewhere.)

And so now with my upper respiratory chest infection sickness for months which I have not been able to recover from (they say it is not they coronavirus 3 times, but I know my body very well and I totally disagree), I am suffering great mental anguish all over again. After having been free from this anguish for 12 years. And also - all so much worst because of the stress of this pandemic.

Because of my symptoms, I keep making mistakes over and over again now.

I keep contacting this other hospital for eating disorders but the director (who was the director at the other place where I got well) still has not gotten back to me. I know that there is a waiting list. I do not mind going back into the hospital but I just hope and pray that I can get into this one where I will be treated well.

Please say a little prayer for this need.
And for All of us who Struggle with Trusting and Surrendering to God
Thank you so much.

O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fountain of Mercy for us, I trust in You!

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, Amen.

Hail Mary, full of grace. The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, Amen.

Eternal Father, I offer you the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your Dearly Beloved Son, Our Lord, Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world. x10

Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

Eternal God in whom mercy is endless and the treasury of compassion inexhaustible
Look kindly upon us and increase your mercy in us
That in difficult moments, we might not despair nor become despondent
But with great confidence submit ourselves to your Holy will
Which is love and mercy itself
Amen

Hail Mary for you.
Our Lady of Mental Peace and St. Joseph, can you please intercede for the OP?
Also St. Teresa of Avila, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Faustina and St. Padre Pio, and St. Catherine of Siena for the ED.
Please all pray very hard and ask God to send his Holy Spirit to calm the OP and help him to trust in the Lord.
In Jesus’ name I humbly pray for the OP’s intentions and for the soul of his brother.

Thank you. Amen.
