For pharmacy school admission, situation with abusive mom, and class I need to make up


I’m currently in the process of applying to pharmacy schools. Also, since I dropped a class Thursday, my mom has been furious with me. As many of you know, she has always been emotionally abusive. I’m a Myers-Briggs INTJ, a very rare and misunderstood breed, especially among females. I was the kind of kid and teenager that excelled at school, but always got in trouble for questioning the rules. My mom always saw me as a horrible child and mentally ill because I never responded well to the authorarian style parenting she grew up with. I never really respected her that much because, even as a kid, I saw she was irrational. For example, she wanted me to dump my first boyfriend because he was short and a ginger. She always accused me of being autistic despite ever expert she showed me to saying otherwise. To her, only people who mental can enjoy their own company.

Anyway, today she screamed at me to get out of the house and yelled at my dad for never doing anything around the house. She told us that I am never allowed at her funeral and that her love for the family dog is the only reason she has not killed her self yet. Dad told me I am not going anywhere and defended me against her. So, for the rest of the summer until I go back to school, I’m pretty much going to be hanging out in public libraries and coffee shops until Dad gets home from work because I’m afraid to be in my own home.

Also, I have a advanced physiology class I need to make up work for before I start school again. I ended Fall quarter last year with three incompletes because my mom’s hostility ruined my performance and this is the last incomplete I have to take care of. She is such a monster that I had this hanging over my head for about a year because she kept screaming at me that I am a defective human being and a bad daughter.

So, yeah, pray for my school, application, and family situation.


Prayer to St. Thérèse for Students

God, our Father and Creator through the intercession
of St. Thérèse, we ask for insight and wisdom to see
the signs of Your Love in the people and in the events
of our lives. May we discern what we have to do as
students and give us the strength to do it. Grant us
success in our work and examinations. Help us
to believe in Your Great Love for each one of us, so
that we may live in truth and radiate Your Love
in our lives. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for Family

Heavenly Father,
Please shine Your light upon this family. Give them
the strength to overcome the difficulties that they are
dealing with now. Protect them against all problems
they may encounter in the future. O Lord, please bring
them together as they are meant to be. May the love
that binds them grow stronger as they fulfill the destiny
You have laid out for them.

Grant this family forgiveness for any sins they have
committed. May they also forgive one another. We ask
this through Christ Our Lord, amen.


I pray that God heals your mother of her problems. I also pray for your school situation; may the Lord guide you. Lastly, I pray for there to be restoration in your family. Amen.

By the way, I’m an INTP, which is very similar to your personality type. Indeed, we are misunderstood, especially by extroverts.


Saint Michael, the archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil, may God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do you, O’ Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God thrust into Hell Satan and all the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls.


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.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.


For Help in Trials

Most holy apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases–of things despaired of. Pray for me who feels so hopeless. Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you of bringing visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolations and succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, in particular (redbetta), and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise you, O Blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen.


Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, or sought thy intercession, was left unaided.

Inspired with this confidence, we fly unto thee, O Virgin of Virgins my Mother;
to thee do we come; before thee do we stand, sinful and sorrowful;
O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not our petitions,
but in thy mercy hear and answer us. Amen

SS. Cosmos and Damien pray for us.


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.


Lord, bless this child of God. Allow her to excel in her academic life and use those new skills and gifts to help others who follow in Christ. I ask this in your name, Jesus amen!
