I am caregiver for my 83 year old mother and not being able to work as a nurse because of my own disability I am responsible for handling two households with little or no help. I have siblings but they live too far away to be able to help. I recently have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which I feel I have had most of my life, and have been started on 3 psychiatric medications and I am scared to death. I have been suffering from severe depression lately and have been unable to go to church because I can’t find anyone to sit for mom for a couple of hours on Sundays and it has affected my spiritual life. I feel if I can be around a body of believers it would help so much. I do miss going and kneeling at the alter to have communion with God and being prayed over. I have felt really depressed lately and have even had thoughts of ending my life. I have to take pain medicine for my neck and back conditions and need surgery but I have to take care of mom. I am a 57 year old divorcee and miss female companionship even as friends. I am not alone but I am. Please pray for me!!!!!!
