Worried About My Daughter


My daughter is really depressed right now and I am very worried about her. She tries to see the best in people and is often hurt by them. She has been crying all day. She is on antidepressants, but they don't take away the hurt that a person causes. I wish I could take away her pain. She feel God has abandoned her and even hates her. Her faith is totally gone. I hate the depression monster. It destroys so many lives. I am fighting hard myself with depression right now. Sometimes even one minute at a time seems like too much.

So sorry to hear that both you and your daughter are having a tough time. I often find myself wounded by others, because like your daughter I try very hard to see the best in people. And as we know that doesn't always work out. I was once told something, and it has stuck with me and rings loudly during times such as these

"The only behavior we can control is our own" Take from that what you will...

I am sending prayers out for you ladies. I know they will be heard and answered.

I'm so sorry that both you and your daughter are feeling depressed right now. As you know, I can completely relate. I wish antidepressants were panaceas-- for so many they are, but it sounds like for us it's a little trickier. I hope your daughter is able to surround herself with people who treat her properly. (And you too!) I have learned that the company you keep, whether it be in the blogosphere or in "real life," can make or break a recovery. Please know that I am here for you and I'm thinking of your daughter. If she is anything like you then she is a very special person.

Wishing you well,
NOS

We need a big huge stream of light to pour down from heaven right onto you and your daughter. I'll pray for it.

Depression sucks, sucks, sucks. Plus I tend to get paranoid. It's hard not to when you've been hurt many, many times. I surely get where your daughter's coming from. Hopefully a little light will shine in.
