I'm not sure who sang it but about a decade ago there was a country music song about someone growing into a spin in their car, realizing they're out of control, then letting go of the wheel and turning the outcome over to a "Higher power"
This mentality just infuriated me. You haven't turn over control to some higher power, you've given up entirely.
You've chosen to lay down and die rather then fight for even a small measure of control in your life.
Grab the wheel and steer! Even if it's the wrong turn it's still going down fighting.
End of rant.
Dies irae. Dies illa solvet saeclum in favilla.
At the Pearly Gates, she complaned to St. Peter. "I was faithful, where was the Lord?" she grouched. St. Peter took a long look at her and said, we provided you a police officer, we provided you a fireman, we provided you a boat, and we provided you a helocopter. What part of "provide" didn't you understand?
God helps those who help themselves. IMHO, of course.

I'm an athiest, but yours was a great bridge to my original thought.
Don't let got, keep fighting. But be open to those, or something else, that wants to joint in that fight with you.
