وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته

Why did the doctor say you mustn't fast?

May Allaah Ta`aalaa grant you and all of us complete Shifaa (Cure) from all illnesses, both physical and mental.

آمين يا رب العالمين

May Allah gives you complete shefa. Have patience sis.

If you are unable to offer salat standing , then u can sit or lie down and then offer salat.

May Allah help you to overcome your struggles. Don't abandon prayers. It will worsen the situation.

Salaam aleikum, sister. :)

I suffer from mental illness (generalized anxiety, manic depression, PTSD, psychosis, and by one diagnosis, bipolar disorder). My illness is such that I was just granted disability by the US government, and soon I will be removed from the work force. I have many bad days where it is hard for me to remember to pray, wake up for prayers (even prayers like Dohr and Asr, as I have to take a lot of naps), keep my concentration during prayer, or keep from being dizzy so that I can stand and complete the prayer. Because of my illness and my medications I make up a lot of prayers, and combine prayers where it is allowable. Even when I cannot get out of bed, and/or am having a spell where I cannot remember the prayer, I will bring up the prayer on Youtube and pray along with it, even if I have to lie in bed and not go through the physical motions, as happens on occasion.

Fasting, however, is a different story. Follow what your doctor says. You are required to make up the fast if your condition improves, even if you make it up one day at a time with days of non-fasting in between to maintain your health, but you are not required to make up the fast if your condition does not improve to a point where a doctor says you can fast again.

May Allah grant you respite from your illness, and strength during this test.
