Jun 5, 2012 · Scared, anxious and worried with mental illness — what to do? in Mental Health

My most charished experience with my bouts of mental illness is that it always brings me closer to GOD. He gave us a great gift many many years ago of his son who died on the cross for us. He raised him from the dead on the 3rd day after his bariel. I thank God for the Lord Jesus Christ and the closer I get to Him and put my faith in Him the better I seem to be spiritually, emotionally and physicallly. I know He uses doctors and medications to help us but He is the Great Physician.

May 28, 2012 · My mood swings and trying not to scare off my boyfriend in Mental Health

Seek help ASAP. There are medications which can help with your mood swings. you are right that these mood swings are hard on the one’s you love. I have them due to my bipolar disordeer. I am not saying you have bipolar disorder, this is just my problem. Speak to your family doctor or psyciatrist for assistance with these feelings. You do not have to live like this. Best of luck. Prayers are with you.

From TammyB: Ask his physician for xylocaine swish and swallow. This will numb his mouth and allow him to eat and drink fluids. There are also mixtures that come with benadryl, prednisone, nystatin and xylocaine. Talk to his doctor about a swish and swallow solution that is right from him.

Thank you for the kind words. I know this time in my life will get better. I just get impatient. I work with hospice pt’s and I do not like to go through periods where I am trying to keep my own head straight. I just want to take care of them in their time of need. I am a firm believer that we all go through things for a reason in life and that this episode will have some positive outcome at the end. I believe very much in GOD and know He is on my side. If you pray, please remember me in your prayers. I find there is great power in prayer. You just have to be patient.

May 28, 2012 · Living with an ileostomy... in Ostomy

From TammyB.
I have had my BCIR since the age of 13. I am now 38. There have been many ups and downs since having my child but with all the trouble I have, I just keep on going on. The BCIR has allowed me to stay active with my child and family. I don’t know that the day will not come that I too will have to have the traditional ileostomy. But that will be the last resort for me. I want to keep my BCIR for as long as I can. Please feel free to contact me. I don’t know if I can be of help but I have had a lot of experience with bowel problems.

May 28, 2012 · I just need some answers!!! Please help me!!! in About Kids & Teens

Hi from TammyB. I do understand what it is like to have scary symptoms and not know what is going on with your body. The only advise I have is that there is a great physician and his name is GOD. So often we forget to go to Him and ask him to guide the doctors to help us find out what is wrong. He has that ability you know. My prayers are with you. Hang in there. Looking forward to see what they say in June. This date is not too far away. It will be her before you know it. Bless you.

Thank you for your kindness. It is always nice to find someone who has some comprehension of what it is like to live with mental illness. My mother suffered all her life but would never get help. She drug her 8 children through her living nightmare with her. She and my dad eventually divorced. My brother and I are the only ones she talkes to of her 8 children. I try to be a support for her but right now I am soooo far out in left field myself. I can’t help anyone. I am afraid of the time I spend with family and friends because I never know if I am going to say something to hurt one of them. Life is so difficult without having to put up with your loved ones hurting you. I would prefer to live in my own silent abyss by myself. The only thing is I have an 11 year old daughter and husband so how do you justify leaving people who depend on you and love you.
