In the middle of December 2019, my son, Darrell’s emotional and mental struggles heightened. He so desires a normal life with a wife and family rather than living with severe Bipolar II disorder. He became discouraged watching his siblings raise and provide for families. Each December day that passed, Darrell seemed to be surrounded by a fog becoming more reclusive, sad, and depressed. I so disliked watching him give up, but he couldn’t seem to help himself. Nothing I said or encouraged him to do was helping either. I felt helpless as I watched his mental and emotional well-being decline.
I have spent hours striving to communicate with my son, Darrell, who lives with Bipolar II disorder because I didn’t understand at times Darrell’s ability to communicate was shutdown. Numerous times I thought I was successful in helping Darrell understand a concept, only to discover a short time later he didn’t grasp what I was trying to convey.

I am a strong believer in the power of prayer. Three years ago I discovered saying daily spiritual warfare prayers can heal and make a positive difference.

My son, Darrell, has dealt with darkness (depression) for quite some time, but we didn’t know how serious it was until three years ago when we discovered Darrell was dealing with Bipolar II Disorder.
