mortal sin of despair

Question from Ravyn Guiliani on 3/10/2008:

what IS the mortal sin of despair? How is it different from feeling hopeless and angry at God for circumstances of suffering? I have at times been so angry at God that I have entertained thoughts that if put into action would be heretic, but I have never completely gone that far. Something always calls me back to my senses. How close have I gotten to the mortal sin of despair? __________________ ~~~Ravyn

From your description I do not think that you have fallen completely into the mortal sin of despair, but here is an excellent article on the topic, from the Catholic Encyclopedia:

God bless,
