Questions to ask yourself

  1. Have you spent a great deal of time during the past few weeks thinking and worrying about this issue; are you unable to get it off your mind?
  2. Have you experienced a sudden weight loss or gain recently? Loss of appetite? Sleeping difficulties?
  3. Have you experienced difficulty concentrating or an inability to focus on the task at hand?
  4. Have you experienced prolonged feelings of hopelessness and despair?
  5. Have you begun to use alcohol or other drugs excessively, perhaps to self-medicate?
  6. Have you noticed a decrease in your patience and ability to manage frustration and an increase in the frequency and intensity of anger?
  7. Have you noticed a change in any behaviors in your spouse or other close family members which trouble you?

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions, you may benefit from speaking with a professional Christian counselor. We offer a one-time consultation at no cost to you.
