    I loved this discussion! Question/ concern: since people mistake their OCD (and other mental disorders) for the ‘promptings of the Holy Spirit’ or God speaking Truth to them, HOW DO ANY OF US KNOW anything “spiritual”? I am sincerely wondering, not being snarky. How do we truly know anything spiritually? Is your testimony a mental disorder OR divine revelation? Gina, are your concerns with the LDS church simply your own mental compulsions or urges? (And I feel the way you do too! Am I in there with you?) Well, perhaps we can simply take comfort knowing we are all crazy together! LOL!
    Love you!
