So I went in today, just barely and met with my bishop. I went to far with a guy 4 months ago and have a mb problem so I scheduled another appointment to meet with him since its been about 2 months since we last talked. I went in and meet with him and he just started asking me questions about life and about school, dating etc. I answered and then he was like so is your temple reccomand current...I was surprised he asked this, knowing that I am unable to attend the temple. So I was like...yes it is but obviously unable to be used. He just looked at me funny...then I reminded him that this was a follow up and he pretend like he knew but he seemed way funny like he didnt even remember me coming in...then he was like so lets talk about your ummmmm "problem". Totally didnt remember me even coming in. Then all we talked about is mb and then he was like oh okay keep clean for two months and then you can take the sacrament. Then said bye. I felt like he didnt even take the time he didnt even remember me and what i had come in and confessed. I should be excited that I can start taking the sacrament again soon but I just feel awful. I feel like I shouldnt be taking the sacrament...not cause of mb but going to far with this guy. Is this satan making me feel so bad about it? I can't target what it is but I feel horrible right now..

Don't be discouraged    
"I understand how you feel about your bishop not remembering you and speaking with you before. Maybe that is true or maybe your bishop is just awkward when it comes to dealing with females and mb. Regardless of what the truth really is, don't let that discourage you on your path to repentance.
It is very easy for people to think poorly of themselves when they commit sin. It is natural for us to feel remorseful and want to make things right. Satan has a very sneaky way of making us feel like we are bad because of what we have done. This is wrong. We are children of our Heavenly Father, He loves us no matter what we do. We are of infinite worth to Him. Feeling remorseful about sin is one thing, but beating yourself up and feeling awful is another. I am not saying that we shouldn't feel bad when we sin, that is part of the repentance process, to have godly sorrow for our sins.
Try not to let the incident with your bishop bother you. He does care and wants you to be happy. Remember that he is human and has flaws just like the rest of us.
God loves you and wants you back, remember that."

not a problem    
"I actually heard once that bishops were blessed with forgetting your sins. Especially if you have repented. You should feel good he forgot about yours, that means he is not holding on to them. When you go in talk about your progress or get a blessing, because the bishop is really just the middle man. He is your helper to help you to know how to repent but he is not there to remember your sins and hold them to you.
I do know what it is like to have a bishop that doesn't care and trust me, your bishop talked to you and he had a conversation with you, he cares. Maybe he felt scrambled because you might have seemed disappointed to him and he didn't want to let you down, but don't hold it against him that he forgot your sins. That is a positive thing if you ask me."

Just a thought...    
"When speaking with the bishop, imagine yourself speaking with the Lord. It would be a blessing to have him not remember your sins, just as he has promised if we truly repent.

D&C 58:42 "...sins are forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more."

Isaiah 1:18 "Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow...""

"The Savior teaches that we will have tribulation in the world, but we should "be of good cheer" because He has "overcome the world". His Atonement reaches and is powerful enough not only to pay the price for sin but also to heal every mortal affliction… He knows of our anguish, and He is there for us. Like the good Samaritan in His parable, when He finds us wounded at the wayside, He binds up our wounds and cares for us. Brothers and sisters, the healing power of His Atonement is for you, for us, for all. "
