Bipolar 1 disorder was a destructor of my life. I wish that when I first was diagnosed I would have had the right meds. I wish my husband could have tried harder to understand that it was me not in control. All I wanted was support and love from them. I did not want to be ignored like I was a piece of furniture. I really don’t think they intentionally did this. Though at times it was a joke to them. I knew then I could get well with the love of my family. If they had worked just a bit to understand the illness. My brother (who is dying) told me I was saved at that time. I cried out to the Lord to not have to live like this. I felt I would rather die. So suicide was the answer.
The Lord changed all that. I know how hard it is to deal with the mentally ill. I am bipolar 1 with P.T.S.D. and now I have the Lord who is my strength and solace. I never dreamed I would get such a beautiful message from my husband. It went straight to my heart that has never stopped loving him.
The Greatest Commandment!
In answer to a lawyer’s question after the Lord had silenced the Sadducees about the resurrection. (Matthew 22:23-34); (Mark 12:18-27); (Luke 20:27-40)
Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?”
Jesus said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.
This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:35-40); (Mark 12:28-34)
This was an email from my husband today.
