  20. Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, can you please pray to God that the curses, hate, evil plans and evil wishes that have been placed on me by my former girlfriend\'s parents, teachers, friends, and even my former girlfriend and possibly her clergymen, may be removed from my life. They continue to hate me, though I have been doing my best to make peace and show love. They want the worst for me, and think of me as evil. Please pray that my wrongdoings and misunderstood words and actions may be forgiven because I am very sorry that I even stepped into their lives. I mean no harm, and I am just sad that they rebuke me and hate me so much. The psychiatrist gave me an overdose on the wrong medication and my mind was altered. I said things that I would not normally say. I even mentioned the \'b\' word and I showed too much anger in the text messages. I sinned against them in doing this, but I know and my psychiatrists know that it was just the medication\'s side effects. I lost so many friends and no one speaks to me the same way as they did when I was happy and at peace. I am very lonely, miserable, and ruined. Everything seems to be going downhill. I am praying a lot, hours a day, for God\'s grace, but I need this prayer request to help me, and others who are suffering. Praise and Thanks to God for the little that I do have, for I am not worthy that the Lord shall enter under my roof. Only God\'s might can heal my soul. Amen.

    Chad, 12/10/2014

    I get negative. I say and imagine things to myself that aren\'t real, true, or who I am or what I want. They\'e not so!! Something else is really bothering me. The truth hurts so much that I don\'t want to focus on it because it\'s so painful. It\'s nothing bad. I told my mom and she is trying to help me.
