I feel like my normal life I had had bin taken away from me . my morning are such a hard time to get though cos that when my panic attacks are at there worst. over the last few days I have bin feel really down and have a low mood . I have tried my very best to pray to the lord about it but it doesn't help . I feel like the real me as gone forever and that I'm sat in this pit of darkness not knowing what's going to happen to me . yes I know the lord loves me but sometimes this illness get too much . sometimes I just can not take life any more . why can't I have my normal life back . that's all I ask for . but it seem its too much to ask . I want to step out of this pit of darkness and back into my normal life. I'm trying my best to keep my mind on the lord but sometimes that a really hard thing to do. please can you pray for me and that I will cure this panic disorder . thanks :)

for christ....maybe I am misreading but it sounds like this was not a problem until a few weeks ago when a doctor said you have a problem. You said ever since then you feel like you won't get better. It sounds like a thought was planted. It sounds like a problem of the mind to me. Satan attacks the mind more than anything else. that is why there is so much scrpiture about guarding the mind and having the mind of Christ. Do a Bible study on the mind and you will see how important it is to take control of it. Jesus is the healer. He can heal not only the body but the mind, emotion, spirit as well. Do not allow these thoughts in your mind. Meditate on scripture or on God, sing hymns or spiritual songs to yourself. Do as the Bible says........

Phillipians 4:8 - Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

I was once told...."You can't stop a bird from flying over your head but you can stop it from building a nest in your hair."
Just the same, troubling thoughts will enter your mind but you can prevent them from lodging there.

I am praying for you......God is able!

Of course we Must give ourselves too the LORD JESUS CHRIST FIRST! It has nothing to do with churches or others! Then we just ask Him to help us overcome these evil thoughts and bondage they cause !
Most of these thoughts are coming from demons trying to get control of us to destory us ! They deal in fear !
You just rebuke them and there dung thoughts ! In the mighty name of Jesus and tell them to get going and take there weak fearful thoughts with them in the name of Jesus Christ!

You refuse to accept them !
2Ti_1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Tell your self this scripture over and over until You accept it as Truth !Above all you think or feel , Because it is truth !

write it on paper put it around the house where you will be forced to read it !

satan the great deciever , he always trying to get us to accept junk , that is untrue ! It sad some accept these dumb weak thoughts !
Let not accept them any more! Thank You LORD JESUS!

Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

Mat_16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
2Co_5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

Rom_1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
Gal_3:11 But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith.
Heb_10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.


Faith that GOD Living Words are Truth ! Above all else!

Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
Joh 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.


Act_10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:


HE LOVES YOU just as much as anyone on this planet ! Love HIM !

Rom_2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

Eph_6:9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.

Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Ephesians 3:20-21

@for christ

Dear sister,

Reading through this thread and your past threads, it appears that you go round in circles of despondancy and despair.

Now may I tell you something.....the devil wants to keep you in this place of despair

But our dear Lord Jesus who loves you so much does not want you to feel so wretched....you are very precious to Him.

He is abundantly able.....do you believe that?
What amazing power is in theses words!!!

According to the power that worketh in us...... sister let go of self and let God work His amazing power in you.

Start singing the Lord's praises. Look to Him and rejoice for everything He had done for you.
For every beautiful blessing around you
For every part of your body...your hands, your eyes, your ears, your mind...etc
Focus on the blessings not on the problems

Claim the fullness of the wonderful promises in His word....
He is able
Hallelujah Amen!!!


For all the promises of God in Him are yea, and in Him Amen
2 Corinthians 1:20

He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings
Psalm 40:2

Now I stand on solid ground, and I will publicly praise the LORD.
Psalm 26:12 (NLT)

The Lord has lifted you out of this pit already and established your feet.
You are free

Do you believe this?

Why not try to share on this thread some of the amazing blessings in your life.
All the things we can take for granted everyday......your sight, your ability to use a computer and type, the wondrous beauty of creation around you
Sing out praises for all that He has done for you
Rejoice in your salvation.

Let the joy of the Lord be your strength.

It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in Him.
Lamentations 3:22-24

Of the women I've met and known with panic attacks, there was a root problem that hasn't been dealt with. This usually stems from a bad or no relationship with their Father. Once acknowledging this root, the panic attacks will cease. However, this cause will still need to be dealt with. Some handle it better than others. A thyroid imbalance can worsen the impact of this root cause also. Get this checked. Keep praying through this and find some confidant to share your feelings with. It is necessary to talk and talk out this root problem. Believe me, once this is resolved, everything will better: and prayer works.

Dear for christ, don’t be too hard on yourself. God is not a task master. You know yourself better than any doctor or therapist. God has granted you the spirit of discernment & wisdom to know your malady. Sometimes there is needed a person who has walked the path you have done to give encouragement and support. At times scripture falls on deaf ears when you are in your place of darkness & wanting help through these hard times. It has been nearly thirteen years since my first diagnosis and I can say without doubt if it were not for my God and family and support from others I would be a mess, focus on the promises of God to help you for truth who you are in God’s eyes. Try asking friends and family to be your support network in your time of need, find someone you can share your feelings and your heart’s desire. I promise you being alone fighting this war is harder than having a network of help around you.

Ride out these days of darkness that has engulfed you because God will only give you what you can bear. (1 Cor 10:13b,c)

I remember once when I was in the supermarket shopping and all of a sudden I was overcome with panic and I had to kneel to the ground and escape the feelings I had of dread and doom. I called on the Lord to give me strength to overcome my feelings and claustrophobia; these were the days I had to encounter when I was newly diagnosed with Bi-Polar and Major Depression. For some time I was a man who faced his feelings head on to attack the feelings of helplessness and doom. Fighting these feelings became a daily thing for me. God gave me the strength to face my feelings head on and became triumphant day by day. Sometimes my feelings got the better of me yet I always said “Tomorrow is a new day” if I had a bad day. I knew God loved me and Jesus was my friend in my hour of need. Jesus is your rock ‘For Christ’. Keep calling on Him every day when you wake and when you retire.

We are who we are and cannot and will not succumb to the trials God puts our way. How brave you are to come here for help and some insight to the way you feel. What you are experiencing is real and minimalising it will do more harm than good. Embrace your feelings and allow yourself to meet these head on, doing so will give you insight and strength to become your old person you want to be. Take your time in doing this as the freedom we seek is actually peace we are looking for. The peace you seek can become a reality as you face each day with hope.

You are in my thoughts and prayers to overcome.
God Bless.

I am praying for God to have His will in this situation. Lord, help our member, "For Christ", turn it over to You will no strings attached as did the three Hebrews in Daniel 3:16-18. Our God is able.

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God

2 Corinthians 1:3-4


Greetings @for christ

I pray that these words of our dear brother fallen will really be of a great comfort to you.
As he has written in his post....he suffers from mental health problems too....and has shared with you so tenderly how the Lord gives him the strength and encouragement to carry on.

Maybe 'for Christ' you know someone else who is going through mental health problems.
Why not prayerfully try giving them a word of encouragement, a little support....in the same way brother fallen has encouraged you
What a blessing and strengthening experience that would be to both you and the recipient

Keep looking up. Keep looking to Jesus. He will never let you down.
Grasp His promises and rejoice, He is with you even when your days seem dark.

Just a thought.... maybe consider changing your Talk Jesus signature to acknowledge the fact that the Lord does care for you and will never leave you

Rather than

Lord I thouth you care about me I thought you loved me.oh why oh why have you left me in this darkness

Something like


Lord I thank and praise You that You love me so much and that You will never leave me

Bless you

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.
And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.
2 Corinthians 1:3-7
