Prayer is a trigger.
I struggle with self injury addiction. And addression problems in prayer triggers a craving to do that. I am seeing a counseler and my bishop. Problem is that my bishop/ward can only pay for counseling for a limited time. There is only one place here that has therapy as a sliding fee and I tried them. They are not for me, they might help some people but are not right for me.
I have been told to not address the problem in prayer but to only focus on other people, blessings, etc. I continue to try that but also have a tendency to dwell on prayer so not praying for things that happen is really hard and I can't always do it. Yet praying about things triggers a craving to SI.
If anyone strugglings with depression, bipolar, or similar things please PM me. I could really use someone who understands.
In the mean time, does anyone have any other advice on how to pray and keep it from becoming a trigger?
