“I learned that we must always pray, even and especially when we don’t feel like it or when it feels compulsory and rote and dry.”
Kathryn Greene-McCreight, Darkness Is My Only Companion: A Christian Response to Mental Illness

“Of course, to speak of the dark night of the soul is anathema to many in the psychiatric field. I was told by one of my psychiatrists over the years not to equate depression with any religious experience such as the dark night of the soul. I never asked him why; I just assumed that he didn't want religious language to be mixed with medical. I did try to tell him, however, that religious language covers all and every aspect of being, that I could not simply separate it from his profession's language and concepts. He looked disgusted.”
Kathryn Greene-McCreight, Darkness Is My Only Companion: A Christian Response to Mental Illness

“The nature of mental illness is to remove one from the normal constraints, perceptions, and understandings of the world around, whatever one’s rational self may say. It is not merely a question of feeling but of the world being a different sort of place in all one’s perceptions. The struggle this brings, and with the struggle the disassociation from those around one, is profound and utterly overwhelming.”
