Pre-wedding blues

Posted by Kar on June 4, 2002, at 14:12:45

Hey all. I'm getting married in October. I'm bi-polar and have been struggling with depression for years. Haven't worked in almost a year because of the depression and lack of ability to work consistently. My fiance is awesome- supportive and understanding...just the best.

Here's the question/gripe/vent. We were both brought up Roman Catholic and attend church...I consider myself religious but not that "Catholic" (BTW, reformed Judaism came up on top on the Belief-O-Matic...took it months ago!). Ok so we've been through precana (kind of like a pre-marital counseling) and that was good. Then we went to this meeting with the priest that was like the Inquisition. While the priest was supportive on the whole, part of the "Inquisition" was a question about whether either of us had received any psychiatric treatment. Sssssssuper. The priest already knew about the probs I'd been having. He told me that he needed a NOTE from my pdoc stating that "from his standpoint there is no reason why I can't marry"...I feel so incredibly insulted and pissed and hurt...aarrgh. Betrayed, in a way. Doesn't that sound like discrimination?

So do I suck it up and just do it? I guess I have to...we should have eloped...

Thank all,
