Women work hard, play hard, love their families, love their God, but sometimes they get the blues. Blues maybe that is a mild term. Sometimes Godly women can become down right depressed. Depressed is a mild word, sometimes women can fall into dark holes of despair. When one falls into that dark hole what do you do? I have been struggling with depression for more than a year now. I didn’t realized till just before Christmas 2010. It was not a crisis of faith. If anything God does draws closer to you but the noise of negativity and darkness can be overwhelming. I never knew what was happening till I had my breakdown. I slowly started to realize what what happening to me. I was depressed, I was ashamed, I was a women that was incontrol that was out of control. I was afraid, terrified is a better word. I had no one to turn to; at lease I thought I didn’t.
I wanted to start this blog as a record of my journey through depression, the doctor appointments, the medications and a deeper relationship with God, the tension of friendships, the relationships with my kids and husband and how they are effected. Some of what you read is funny, sad, even scary, but all of what you read is true.
I also want to help those who are going through the same thing. When friends are too busy to talk, and the darkness seems to close, I hope that you will come search this out. There are answers to the questions about what depression is about, there is hope, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Please read on you’ll find anxious moments, you’ll find answers to prayer, you’ll hear stories of deep despair, sadness, addictions and failures. And maybe you’ll find hopefully a way to cope and way to hope and a way to find peace.
