I just need to let you all know that I am going through anxiety attacks. I think it is because I fought so hard against all the temptation of the flesh, get up when ever there was a problem in the night, not sleeping, that my nerves are shot.
I went to see physician’s assistant at Mayo Clinic who prescribed for me Alprazolam for anxiety and a sleeping pill to sleep. I have never taken anything like this before and for the last two nights just took one pill of the Alprazolam and have slept 8 hours a night for the last two nights. But in the day I am having real bad anxiety attacks and fatigue.
I am telling you all of this because I am not able to do much on my blog. I am sorry. Thank you for all your prayers and I am sure there are people suffering way more than I am.
I also get emotionally exhausted continuing to perform all my priestly functions, Latin Masses, confessions, funerals, blessings and classes. That I have been so far able to do everything I have been doing these last 2 and 1/2 years here is really a miracle. It actually helps to be busy, but at the same time I it take great energy to do these while feeling fatigue and nervousness. It is very humbling to have to say these things when I have been so strong for so long. But all that can be lost is pride and that is a good thing.
All this shows me how valuable a priest is. How important to have a priest to be able to do all his duties.
So please keep me in your prayers. Thank you for all your prayers and I pray for all of you in each one of my Masses.
