Unable to Blog

The depression has been so bad I have been unable to blog. I think I'm seeing a little relieve, but it is very slight. I'm not sure my psychiatrist and therapist are really working together right now. My therapist is having me do some intense work on my past. I'm not sure that is such a good idea with only two weeks left before she takes a break. I also think the holidays are playing a part of the depression. I just hanging in there with a hope this cycle will soon pass.

My sweet friend, I am praying for you. Remember, the ultimate therapist and psychiatrist (Our Heavenly Father) longs to heal your heart. When the days are dark and long He is with you. He loves you! I cling to this when I am struggling...and usually it is the little snippet that keeps my head above water.
Big hugs, love, and prayers, andrea

Sorry to hear Wanda about what you're feeling. I just prayed for you. I want to share with you that I had stumbled upon a great site "When I Am Weak Then I Am Strong" by bro. Peter Stone [http://cornerstonethefoundation.blogspot.com]. He had gone through severe depression and now is living victoriously, thanks be to God! But he is being used by the Lord to encourage others. I have his blog too in my blog roll. You can just click on it. God bless you sister and may the Lord sustain you with His strength and healing.

I do believe the holidays tend to intensify things and if depression is lurking, it can make it worse.

Continue to hang in there. It will get better.

I pray for you,

I can understand your felings Wanda, not totally your pain. How do we feel not so alone during the holidays? I will be alone this Christmas too. So I am finding a way to enjoy it, as my son is going on another holiday with my mum. Maybe this is my little 'ME' time. Will pray for enlightenment .. Bless you dear.

Hi,

I just wanted to check in on a friend, I admire your courage, and your honesty.

The cool thing about life is that it is painful, and feeling is also part of that experience....

Stay in touch

I hope it passes soon, too. Holidays can suck, imho. At least for me. Maybe you will soon fare better.

Hey Wanda,
The Christmas season holidays can certainly affect depression, but thankfully it is only for a short while.
Just take it one day at a time, without focusing on what lies ahead. The days will all add up together and before you know it, the Christmas season will be over, allowing things to become more normal again.

Paula said...

I am so sorry about your pain. Yepp, holiday season intensifies the situation. I will be alone too. And you are right, it isnt the most sensible thing to approach such topics just before the therapists holiday. I am thinking of you. Safe hugs from this side of the pond.

This is a bad time for many. I do hope you can move from this darkness soon. When I find my depression hanging heavy, I search for all kinds of sunlight and park myself in warmth. It sometimes helps.
