Lots of atheists like to chastise theists for relying on religion as way to hide themselves from reality and bathe in delusions that may be pleasant but are ultimately false. However, it isn't always the case that clinging to religion generates contentment. Instead, it can sometimes bring with it a deep sense of anxiety.
Such was the case with a woman who needed a lung transplant, but had to reject it, at least for a time, when she became a Jehovah's Witness and could not go through with the operation because of the religion's ban on blood transfusions.
The woman eventually decided that God wanted her to live, but the case illustrates the fact that religion can produce trauma at times rather than just being a source of warm and fuzzy goodness, as many atheists often depict to be the case.
