After a lifetime battling mental health issues including anxiety, depression and PTSD all is calm in my world now for which I thank God!
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 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.
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.
I am struggling to adjust to the new living arrangements and I think it is mostly due to not being able to smoke inside.
I have been on antidepressants for over a year now so I thought it was time to take a look at how my depression is going.
Life is a never ending stream of wins and losses. I'm winning and losing too but, these days, I try to focus more on the wins.
At fifty years old I am in what some would describe as the winter of my life. Today I got a glimpse of spring.
I'm feeling disconnected from God these days and I think it's because I'm not growing as a Christian any more.
