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.
