ok, so i am eighteen years old. and i have for the past six years suffered from some sort of mental illness, like depression, but not exactly. i actually have borderline personality disorder. i was also a really bad cutter during those years...

well, one day, i decided i was completely done with life. i took 75 tylenol right before school. needless to say it made me very very sick. and i was taken out of school in an ambulance and had to have my stomache pumped. my pastor came to see me right after that and he prayed with me. (he has literally been there for me at the worst of times, when even my own family refused to be there.) i spent the next week in the icu... and then was sent to a psych hospital for a few more weeks.

after returning home from there, i went to my psychiatrist who refused to give me medications before he tested my liver. he told me that there is no way i should be alive. and if i was alive that i should basically be in a vegetable state.

the tests came back, and my whole body is functioning normally. i know i wouldnt be alive right now if it werent for god. he is so good. im actually crying right now as im writing this.

The Holy Spirit moved within me on that note. An amazing testimony indeed! I have a similar testimony but my "sickness" ran for a span of 15 years, than I was made whole and into a NEW creature. I would be glad to share it with you(or anyone), just ask and you shall receive.

hi, I too have a mental illness, and when I was younger I went through a terrible time. I was so neive in my outloook, and I feel people didint know the real me. I waa diagnosed with schizophrenia in 1995. I have then become to realize I dont need to relay on people so much as, they have all let me down in some way.Even though i was going through a bad time, drinking and different sex partners, I knew I wasnt fully developed into a responsible adult, that could be do do my my illness. I thanks GOD fOR not making me pregnant, as this could have easily happened. I am now with my prest partner of 10 years, and we plan to get married one day. I know soemwhere GOD LOVES ME, even though I have had to learn the hard way about people. I would love a genuine freind, but I know somewhwre in my heart that GOD made me that way I am, and I should be proud of myself. I have a good nature and I dont want to change for anyone. I know we can learn to love ourselves, and I have, and I know if GOD IS WITH ME, I will be saved. Amen

75? Man that's logistically difficult. How can you take so many pill without passing out first?
