DEPRESSED? – HERE’S SOME GOOD ADVICE!

My husband just shared some good advice with a friend asking about Depression.  Right away I thought this is good information that could be posted here.  I feel strongly that someone passing by might need help with where they are in life right now.

We are coming out of Winter and Spring is near.  It’s a season when one is depressed they tend struggle more with this issue.  It is a time when everything is blooming and budding and new, but when a person struggling trying to stop this downward spiral they may feel “HELPLESS”!  They can’t feel they are able to catch up with this change in season and they want their life to be fixed.  So what can you do?  You might be wondering “am I depressed?”  Well let’s see how you can relate to these signs do you have any of these? …

SIGNS OF DEPRESSION
            1.   Sleeplessness
            2.   Difficult making decisions
            3.   Upset by small things
            4.   Loss of or excessive appetite
            5.   Loss of interest IN SEX
            6.   WITHDRAWAL FROM FRIENDS & RELATIVES

How did you do? Maybe you are going through a time of depression.  You might need to talk someone and get help you can make it through this time.  You will benefit from it one day by looking back and see it is no mistake and all things are for a reason.  So let’s read on…..

So back to the subject,  I love the contacts we get through Facebook, Blogging or just plain Email. We want to answer questions, through past knowledge or research we work to help people find results for that thing that gets one off course.  The following is the question concerning Depression with Phil’s answer…

They said, “I sometimes struggle with Depression, why is it recurring and what can I do about it?”

Phil said, “Two things, Depression is Anger turned inward. That could be anger toward self or someone or something else. Forgiveness of course, is usually the remedy for this type of depression. 


Another cause, can be too much introspection ….it can get too dark in there. These are of course, not the only causes! Physical fatigue, vitamin or mineral deficiency, or maybe a hormonal issue.”

He continues with this added advice…… “Having said that, I would suggest a a process of elimination track for you. Work through what you would first suspect. This track may lead to a doctor’s visit to check for possible physical causes.”

I liked his simple advice to put this person into action to find the cause and cure.  If this should apply to you my prayer is that you will find answers and Father will guide you through this time in your life. 

Just this morning this verse came to my attention, it applies here….”  Isaiah 25:1 “Praise to the LORD, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago.”  When I read it, it made me stop and realize God knows about everything that happens in our lives, from the beginning, to the end. Trust is the word that comes to mind…just Trust Him…. all the way to the finish…a new day is coming!!!  The sun will shine!

THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY!
