    My mother suggested a prayer card and medal of St. Dymphna to me for assistance with anxiety and bi-polar moods. I will incorporate devotion to her into the attempts I make to achieve balance in my emotions and thought processes. With all of life's challenges and changes may the assistance of this martyr bring strength and peace.
