Taking Control of MY Mental

    There are alot of factors, elements and my environment that played a very big part in me being diagnosed with Narcoelpsy, ADD, Bipolar disorder and a learning disability When I was in the 12th grade (1990). I was born with a ministry chosen to do great works in the Kingdom of God. That is why the enemy has been doing every thing possible to stop me since the day I was born. 

    I was born January 4, 1973 in Dallas, Tx. I am a multiracial mix ( White, black, Hispanic, French, Cherokee and Black Foot Native American) This first week of my life, I had to spend in the hospital. I was born with Jaundice, my mother said they called me a blue baby. The tragedy of rape soon followers after ( twice ).

    This first time I was around 2 years of age, I did not know about this one until last year. I did not even know I existed not knowing I was alive until I reached the  4th grade. The 2nd rape and malestation began around age 5 and ended completely when I turned 12. Then I became very sexual after that.

    In the 4th grade when my eyes opened up and the awareness that I was a living breathing being came to my attention. That was the year I learned of the things that I was being made to do. That was the year he stopped covering my eyes.

    My mother even told me once that I was so clumsy that I ran into a wall everyday. That I constantly had a bruise on my forehead.

    I was raised in Church, raised Baptist and Pentcostal. My grandfather was Baptist and my grandmother was a Pentcostal, so every other weekend it was a back and forth affair. I did not embrass the Church scene as well as I should have. The only book in the Bible at the time, that even kept me interested is Revelation.

    I had to give you a little bit of History into my background, all these things played a big part in 1990, when I was taken to a rehab center ( that I had to stay in for a month, to find out what was wrong with me.

    God actually set me up to not depend on anyone, to not trust anyone. He wanted me to himself. He became my Father, savior,  teacher, my mentor, my counsellor, my doctor, my therapist, comforter, and Friend. He was there from Day one. It was not until the 11th grade I learned how much I truly needed God in my life. Every second, minute, hour of everyday. This is the year my world changed. The Narcoeplsy and the Bipolar disorder showed its face, the ADD and learning disability was there the whole time. I had to relearn how to live all over again.  I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes in 2007 and in 2009 High blood pressure. Healing and deliverance I have claimed. In the name of Jesus Christ.

    This testimony could go on. There is alot to it. I will finish it with this. What ever mental disorders you may have, even sleeping disorders God has came along and taught me how to allow him to be the Doctor, for him to be the medication. I do not take any man made pills for these mental disorders. God has taught me how to have control of MY Mental and you can too. There are alot of things, alot of storms that I had to go through to get to a point that I understand God, I trust God with everything in me. I have confidence in my belief in Him. He is alive, He is real. I am a living breathing fact, not an opinion. I will praise him all the days of my life. I thank Jesus Christ to have even thought of me, when he sacrificed himself on the cross. I carry my cross daily. I renew my mind daily.  I Stay in constant Prayer. I pray this testimony will help inspire and motivate someone. If you would like to know more about my journey do not hesitate to ask me. I have no problem telling my life story.. I was told to Go And Tell.

    What a great testimony! Bipolar runs in my family and my daughter a long 5 months in and out of mental health hospitals in a bipolar psychosis. And yes lots of factors brought her to her struggle with mental health. After the death of her Aunt she finally accepted that she needed help. Now each day is new and she has come along way. Fully back in her senses and starting a new job. She still has a long way to go and a life long battle to regulate her mental state, but she too chooses not to take meds as we are naturalists by nature. She did take medication for a couple months to get her leveled out,but now is without meducation and trying to regulate her diet. God is good for bringing her back to us. Thank you for sharing your story:) Blessings
