Well, fast forward from March 9th of 2015 wherein I uploaded my last blog post and this blog finds me doing well. I've been on Effexor anti-depressant for the past several months and it's working well for me. Before I started the medication I was very suicidal. I hated life and everything about it. I can't lie and say I love life now because I don't, but I'm bearing up under it a lot easier. I would recommend anyone who has depression like I have to get some help for it. Find a therapist and get some medication in your system. You'll feel and see a difference in yourself. I have a counselor although my true faith is in the medicine that God has provided me with. I say that because I prayed and prayed for the depression to be lifted and it wasn't until I got on the medication that it did indeed lift. So, therefore, it's not that God touches you with his finger and makes you better, it's that He leads you to the place you need to find for help. Don't be overly religious people. Prayer is about getting God to hear your cries for help so when He finally answers that prayer, don't second guess it.

When someone says the words, "battling depression," that's exactly what they mean. It's a battle. I've been battling this thing for years although there was a brief lull during a time period where I thought I was cured. Nobody gets cured from depression. Depression is forever (or until heaven).
I started out with the extreme mood swings and that grew to rages. I got on medication and my moods are regulated. I take Wellbutrin and it seems to be the right medication, although I still struggle to get out of bed in the morning.
I write this to ask if there's anyone else out there struggling with depression who would like to share their story with me. I wonder how many people in my internet circle of friends has this problem?
