Questions to Ask Your Doctor When Battling Depression

By November 12, 2020No Comments

ast week – 4 days within 4 years for all 8 of us to be together.

Pure bliss. Pure joy.

(I had a son gone for 2 years serving our church and 4 days after he got home my 2nd son left for 2 years).

Then goodbye. The hug. The tears.

The mom heart feeling a void. So hard.

I miss him terribly. There are moments each day that I cry. Missing his presence in the home.

And to think that 15 years ago, I wanted to say goodbye to all of this. I voluntarily wanted to leave all of this. I wanted to end my life. I wanted a permanent goodbye. And I tried.

If I wanted to say goodbye, think of the depth of that depression. It was some major pain. Some major darkness. Some major loss of hope. Some major misery.

And why? Because I didn’t know. I didn’t know what food, exercise, products, and toxins could do to my body. To my health. I wasn’t educated on depression or the ability to heal. I thought I was doomed with this for life.

Many are struggling in 2020. More than any other year.

If you or someone you know is struggling, please educate them and get them help with the RIGHT person!
