Don’t take me back…

Someone wrote about not going back to where they lost their way with Jesus… But to go forward with him, into the unknown, with a fresh spirit.

I constantly wonder, how much of my rude behavior is me, and how much is faulty chemistry in my brain? I used to be able to miss meds for longer. I missed my morning meds but took my anti-psychotic at 7am and was still rude in the morning meeting.

A client suggested I set a morning alarm. Then my wife suggested it, and acted on it, by setting an alarm. We will see if this helps.

I am responsible for how I treat people. If I wasn’t then the whole world could claim they are not responsible for their actions. But there are reasons why you act negatively and there are reasons why I act negatively. And I hope you will extend me grace and I hope that I will extend you grace.

So I come to the place where I wish I could just go back to where I was with Jesus. Before having a bad attitude. Instead, I have to trust Jesus that he is enough to deal with my “now” and my “future.” And of course the “now” means more apologies. And the “future” means responding to the now set alarm for meds.

I became Seriously Mentally Ill at age 18, ten years later I got and took the right meds, I accepted Jesus, and my recovery began.
