I think I've Found... true patron Saint:

Saint Dymphna,
Patron of Mental & Spiritual Afflictions,
Pray for Us

The last two lines from the website tell all:

"Gheel (where she lived and was martyred) has long been known as a place of pilgrimage for persons seeking relief of nervous or emotional distresses. In our century, the name of St. Dymphna as the heavenly intercessor for such benefits is increasingly venerated in America."


(By way of Zilla of the Resistance)

Are you a fan, then of Gates of Vienna? I love that blog, but especially Dymphna.

No, but I'll take a look. I just happened on this thru Zilla, and felt it somehow appropriate for me!
