Thank you all for your prayers for our family! Some of you know that we had a really rough October- December. Our younger son was going through a tough time emotionally, and there was some talk from his previous therapist that he may be bipolar or have other psychiatric issues.
I admit I thought I was at my breaking point. There has only been one other time in my life that I felt as hopeless as I felt during that time. There were days I could barely get out of bed and many sleepless nights filled with worry. It got to the point I finally had to seek help for myself and went back on Zoloft and Xanax to help get through the days. Between medication, therapy, and prayer I got through it.
Everything I've Been Through…I've Been Through
You know the saying “everything you’ve been through you’ve been through”? This is so true! I don’t know why we went through the things we did, but I hope that God will be able to use me in some little way to help other moms who may be struggling.
I’m thankful for answered prayers!
He had his psych testing done, and they determined that he does NOT have those issues. The professional said that in her opinion there are no diagnoses. Yes, he was going through a rough time, but there was a catalyst that brought everything on. And he acknowledged that he should have handled things differently.
He has been seeing an Army Chaplain for a couple of months now, and we have seen a huge improvement. I am grateful that God put this Chaplain in Will’s life, and he has said he will not give up on Will. He didn’t have to take Will under his wing, but he did. It does this mama’s heart good to see her fella smile and be excited about his future.
I'm reminded of the post I wrote while I was in the middle of the storm. I still take comfort in these verses from Psalm 107:28-29 “Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and He brought them out of their distress. He calmed the storm to a whisper, and the waves of the sea were hushed.
Dear Mama if you are going through a rough time right now with your kids, don't give up. Remember it's okay to ask for help, cry and scream if you need to. Just remember it WILL get better and God is there with you in the midst of your storm. Prayers work!
