Re: Anxiety and Depression

Maybe I could talk her into both seeing her counselor to see if we could set boundaries with the church in our marriage. So yeah the church is a pain in my a$$. Stuck -- This is an excellent idea.If she likes and trusts the counselor, she'll then be open to listening and considering feedback. For e...

Re: Anxiety and Depression

I have good days and bad days, but a lot more good days since distancing myself from attending church (automatic trigger). I still have anxiety and have accepted that I will always have it. I am better at recognizing triggers and setting boundaries to help keep it at bay. I did struggle with depres...

Re: Anxiety and Depression

With your doctor, just say that attending church is one of your big stressors, and he should tell you to just stop going even if it upsets the wife. It really is simple once you get over trying to make everybody happy. Your health is important and your wife is responsible for her own happiness. You...

Re: Anxiety and Depression

Xanax or other medication can help calm the symptoms for awhile, and you should do whatever your doctor directs you to do. If the Dr. has you on prescription meds, then follow the Dr.'s orders about that. But medications sometimes don't get to the heart of the anxiety and depression, which is the c...

Re: Anxiety and Depression

Yes, there's great medications that can help you with your depression and/or anxiety. Find a Dr. That's not scared to write a prescription for Xanax, see if that helps your anxiety. Some of the newer anti depressants are really good but watch out for side effects. I spent a good portion of my life ...

Re: Anxiety and Depression

I’ll put in the plug for exercise, sleep, and trying to eat healthy. Talking to your doctor is also a perfect solution. Taking a break from Mormonism is highly recommended too. Both chapel and internet Mormonism. Take care of yourself first. I like the break from mormonism. I'll have to see if my D...

Anxiety and Depression

I am sure that many if not all of us on here have gone through a faith transition. Has anyone experienced anxiety and/or depression because of this? For example, it is triggering sometimes when I have to endure my wife's tbm beliefs and her orthodox ways with the kids; also it is sad for me to think...

Re: 17 new temples?

Most of the Mormons I know are fairly well off even after giving 10% to the church. Why? Because mormonism teaches a way of life that the majority of people don't live today. Mormons are frugal, Mormons believe in staying debt free. Most pay as they go. They work within their means. Their taught al...

Re: Destigmatizing Therapy

I thought this post would be the perfect place to share some good news. I’m so excited to share that yesterday I received an acceptance letter into the MSW program that was my first choice. I was really nervous that I wouldn’t get in since the acceptance rate is less than 30% and I know of two othe...

Re: Astrological Birth Chart vs. Patriarchal Blessing

My Mom just suggested that perhaps her grandkids ought to get them early in order to better "guide" them in their lives. My siblings who got it when young agreed with her.

Re: FSY and good, better, best

This is another sign that the church is a cult right? They put the youth in these programs or activities where they are expected to bear testimony and such to try to strengthen their beliefs in the church. I suppose they do this so that they will be more likely to go on a mission or marry in the tem...

Re: Destigmatizing Therapy

My wife started counseling recently due to some issues unrelated to my faith transition. She started it because her friend started it. Now her mom sees it's maybe somewhat helpful and is encouraging her brother to do it. It's interesting how the ball can began to roll right?

Re: Plagues of Egypt

There was a book I read some 30 years ago that had pretty good evidence that the God of Abraham started out as a volcano God. Not that I remember much more than his theory, but that was one thing he used, about God going before them as a pillar of light and pillar of smoke. But then I wondered, if ...

Re: Plagues of Egypt

... it was very interesting to learn that the volcano that erupted from the island of Santorini most likely caused the plagues of egypt in about 1600 bc. Whether or not that is true, I think it may very well be the inspiration for the story of Yahweh guiding the Israelites with a pillar of smoke by...
