After losing 17 pounds in one month and being frozen with fear, Sabrina decided to get some help with her anxiety. Do you currently suffer from a mental illness that gets in the way of your every day life? Do you feel like an untreated mental illness can make it more difficult to feel God’s Influence? In this episode, Kwaku, Justin, Mimi, and our guest Sabrina talk about the struggles of anxiety and it’s effects on daily life.
“One day I just woke up and I felt like me again!” For years, Sabrina tried to deal with anxiety on her own until a friend helped her that God will help her as she uses her resources like modern day medicine. Elder Holland said, “if you had appendicitis, God would expect you to seek a priesthood blessing and get the best medical care available. So too with emotional disorders. Our Father in Heaven expects us to use all of the marvelous gifts He has provided in this glorious dispensation.”
“It’s not in people’s control.” Sabrina goes on to explain that anxiety and the need for medication are not things that can be cured with self help books and a strong personality. Do you think that living a healthy life can completely substitute medical treatment?
