Hi I was wondering what is the churches stance on Mental Illnesses. I myself have several mental illnesses. I am Schizoaffective which is a form of Schizophrenia, Bipolar, Manic Depressive and I also have Dissociative Identity Disorder formerly termed Multiple Personalities. I have been on medicine for 10 years and have been stable 7 years. I take my medicines religiously.
If I was to go into a Manic Phase and commit a Sin but was not aware of it what would I do? I believe Jesus will save me in my heart but I don’t want my Mental Illnesses to be an Issue with the Church. Can you Please Help?
Thank You So Much!
