My Spiritual Health

I would consider myself a Christian who tries to follow Jesus’ teachings without getting into other people’s business about how they live their lives.

I would consider myself still an Orthodox Christian even though I do not really go to services anymore.  I love the feeling I get when I walk into an Orthodox Church.  I like the contemplative type services and the chanting and the incense and the iconography.    What I have thought about doing is starting a group of fellow Christians who are tired of all the extra stuff and just want to follow Jesus’ teachings.  We could study his teachings but then also try to emulate them in our every day lives and in special projects we do together.

I have the following disorders:
Clinical depression | Generalized anxiety disorder | ADHD | PTSD | BiPolar II Disorder | touches of OCD that seem to have gotten more evident as I’ve aged

and I’m an addict – a food addict – a spending addict

I am not on disability.  I currently work 40 hours a week at a small one-lawyer law firm to pay my bills (read:  “it’s my day job.”) and I write a weekly article or two for our local newspaper, the Springfield Reporter.  I
