Mi Sheberach

Question

Recently, I’ve been struggled with the awful lows of depression and the uncomfortable highs of mania. I’ve sought comfort from the Jewish community. One of my favorite sections of the synagogue service is where the Mi Sheberach prayer is recited; it really resonates with me. I frequently say the prayer for family members and ill friends, but is there ever an appropriate way to ask a dear friend to say a Mi Sheberach for me? Does this act have any precedent in Jewish tradition, or is it better not to request this of someone who would otherwise do it for me?
