I'm a living train wreck.  I won't go into details or the specific things I'm struggling to cope with, but let's just say the world changed and I didn't change with it.  Every day is a new experience in terror.  I'm coping badly.  I need strength, patience, and understanding, and I have all but three of those things.  Prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Some of my questions might appear patently stupid to those well-versed in Orthodoxy, but I'm brand new, having no background in the faith.  Please grant me a great deal of patience and consideration as I learn the basics.

To thee, O Most Holy Mother of the Word Incarnate, I cry, O thou mother of God made flesh. Pray for me, a wretched member of this world, that I may find happiness in this world and in the next.

May God have mercy on you. Pray for me also as I often feel the same way. Keep fighting the good fight.

On hiatus from posting. Forgive me if my posts have lacked humility or tact. Note that some of my older posts -especially those prior to late 2012- may not reflect my current views. In the meantime, please pray for my sinful self as I am in a critical and unsure juncture in my life. Thank you.

Do you have a Christian counselor?

Better yet, open Galatians, and read that epistle by St. Paul.

St. Paul, intercede to God for us.
