Sorry to say most employers think people who have a mental illness are useless. Just because you have a mental illness doesn't mean that your employer can fire you. You have rights now under the American Disability Act, and well as other laws.

Telling your employer that you have such an illness is also a hugh mistake. I feel that the church who let you go, isn't one that I would want to work for anyway. Where is there Christian Ethics at?

I wouldn't give up your profession, you may even have a case with the EEOC, for unlawful discharge. I would look into it.

If you didn't want to go that route, look for new employment in the same field. I'm sure many good churches are looking for good honest Christian people like yourself.

I hear what you are saying, and I've ask the same type of questions over and over again and again in my own life.

I have been fighting Major Depression all of my lfe, and have had many failures in my life as a result of the illness. The last failure in a job I really loved, and always thank God for. I lost that job because of stress, being a work acoholic, not taking time for myself, OCD, and forgetting that it was God who put me in that job, however, I left God and put myself above him, to the point I felt I didn't need him anymore.

After which I went into a deep, deep, deep, depressive mood, panic attacks, mood swings, and all that goes with it.

All I can say to you is be the best you can be. Put God first in your life no matter what. Take the time to walk and talk to him, pray, study, and remebr that he is always there, even when your mind tells you he isn't there.

God is there, has been there, and will always be there for you and every Christian. I think it takes some one who has this illness to understand and can relate to you. I find reading Scripture helps, praying, taking you medication, and doing what you have to do to take care of yourself mentally and physically.
