This is from a blog that is rarely updated and mostly shuttered now A Lovely Calling by Lisa and is one of the saddest, yet common stories in Quiverfull Evangelical. The story of lots of health problems that are complicated by panic attacks and anxiety. This girl takes it to a completely over the top place by ignoring a back problem, having gall bladder removal at a young age before suddenly deciding it’s Satan sent panic attacks that Jesus alone can heal.
This is so sad, describing feelings of anxiety and depression as selfishness! Please, if this is you please, please, please do not think you’ve done something to bring this on, or that you are responsible in any way. If you have depression and anxiety please go see your doctor first. It could be physical, or chemical. It’s not Satan or Jesus. It’s perfectly normal in some circumstances, like the author above describes of having a schizophrenic father and other life challenges. Don’t suffer alone and please do not blame yourself. This is the most dangerous of lies in Evangelicalicalism!
