My battle with depression.
After a lifetime battling mental health issues including anxiety, depression and PTSD all is calm in my world now for which I thank God!
I quit smoking almost two years ago which, if you know me, you know was a miracle God worked in me. Now He has helped me quit my addiction to diet coke too.
December 24 marks six months since I last had a cigarette and I am dancing with joy over how easy God has made this for me.
I've had a theory about what causes depression for years now but it doesn't seem to be one that anyone else knows about so I thought I should share it.
I have a very negative attitude to life which is at odds with the Christian ethos of joy being the result of salvation. Here is what God said about it.
I have been a born again Christian for around 33 years now and the issue of "the joy of the Lord" has troubled me for all of that time.
I keep starting blog entries and deleting them but I really want to complete this one so I can wish my readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Sometimes I get so down on myself I lose sight of reality but God sometimes steps in to remind me of what is real which comforts me.
Life is a dance. I just wish mine was not the Hokey Pokey!
Depression is a difficult thing to get rid of when you are prone to all varieties of it. Here is the tale of my latest run-in with the beast.
