Depression was so gripping that I didn’t care if I ever woke up again

 

Depression was so gripping that I didn’t care if I ever woke up again.

Earlier on in my life, depression was so gripping that I didn’t care if I ever woke up again. At that point, a friend came over and took me to see a psychiatrist.

It’s been very difficult over the years. Almost not sleeping or resting at all, it took another 20 years before they were able to find a prescription that would allow my body to finally get some rest for at least 5 or 6 hours at a time.

Without Jesus with me, I think that I would be in pretty bad shape. I have to remind myself often that God has to work through you to make it through the day. … And now I have a lot of empathy for other hurting people.
