Trying to feel I am okay

I was offered by my therapist to try to get on medical coverage and now someone tells me it is for those with severe mental illness. The word severe hurt, not that I like being mentally ill either but for some reason severe is triggering me a lot.

I worry so much about my kids that I try not to rub off onto. I try not to worry but it’s hard. I don’t trust myself to do a lot of things I used to do and that in itself is scary but I have been getting myself to go out of my comfort zone and what else can I do but try? My husband smokes and I think what if he dies of lung cancer like his dad at a young age?

Good thing about today is I can push restart anytime I want and in releasing these negative thoughts I hope I can leave it behind for now.

My goals are to exercise today, do some mindful meditations, to love, to let myself have some peace.

And the peace of God mounts gartison over your heart and mind. Do not worry about the use of the word severe, it has to do with the mind, mental illness. You are working toward your healing from mental illness do not let this cause you a problem, stay at peace. Tell yourself, you are working toward your complete healing and wholeness from mental illness and as the doctor called it severe mental illness. Tell yourself to God be the glory you are healed, speak it in the name of Jesus until it manifests. God’s blessings!

Thank you. Yes I don’t need to let that words get to me. It’s just I’ve slways been having mental health troubles so it’s hard to see the healing but in believing the healing is part of what is healing. Thank you so much Needhelp123

For me Starrlight admitting I had a mental illness was a relief, I just could not keep denying it because then what is wrong with me then. But I know God is a healer. You are healed in the name of Jesus because it is what you seek and what you claim. Do not take to heart anything that has a potential of stealing what is already yours, your healing. And I will use the term mental health for now on. Continue to be blessed!

I need to be positive and believe all the goodness happening instead of focus on what seems wrong. At least I can try to be mindful of the moment unfolding without judgment . And I can praise God and ask Him for more healing and guidance.

Claim your healing, your wholeness, it is probably why his using the word severe bothered you. Claim your healing, claim your healing. He is just trying to get you insurance coverage.

Beautiful thank you Findsolidhope. I will ponder this. Blessings to you too.

True, need to be careful what labels we attach where.

You sound very sensible to me, you must be doing something right. Love Ray

That means a lot to me, Ray. Thank you !😊

The word "severe" in this case doesn't mean that you live in a padded room. It probably means an illness that is resistant to treatment. You have what you have, but you ARE NOT what you have. Your illness is just a detail of your life.

Why not look into the coverage?

That’s a good way to look at it. Oh I am in the process of getting coverage. Thanks
