High risk of suicide this season...'words of depression' follow

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

I copied this from a depressed lady friend. I cry inside reading it...especially this time of year. I know of no response beyond prayer.
Perhaps there are others on teams for Depression who have felt this way in the past. Or these could be your words today. Please share with me and allow me to pray for you as well.

I HATE BEING ALIVE

I HATE WAKING UP EVERY MORNING AND KNOWING I HAVE TO FACE ANOTHER F_____ DAY AND FIGURE OUT SOMETHING USELESS TO DO WITH MY LIFE

I AM SOOOOOOO ANGRY THAT GOD MAKES ME STAY ALIVE AND TAKES ALL THOSE BEAUTIFUL LITTLE CHILDREN AND PRODUCTIVE TEACHERS FROM THAT SCHOOL OUT OF THIS WORLD. THEY WANTED TO LIVE AND WERE CONFIDENT THEY WOULD MAKE A GOOD GO OF LIVING THEIR LIVES WITH ALL THEIR POTENTIAL

WHY WON'T GOD LET ME OUT OF LIFE???

I AM NEVER GOING TO BE SUCCESSFUL!!
I AM JUST A BURDEN TO THE FEW PEOPLE INVOLVED IN MY LIFE

Thanx for listening
NOTHING you can do for me
Life is what it is and mine is LONELY and SAD and USELESS

Depression and Mental Illness are very real and devastating. We need a national discussion on these issues and helping those with no health insurance who are affected.

    I struggle with severe depressions, and there are (sometimes) moments where I ask God to release me from this life, but mostly I ask God for another day, and another day, and for the strength to carry on with each day. Sometimes it seems that I just can't make it through, but I have.

  you are quite wise- we do need to tackle these issues together as country, and ensure access to care for those struggling because it can make a huge difference in their lives and the lives of those around them. Thank you for being a voice on this issue!! Blessings

Sad, but TRUE

There are a lot of people hurting all year long,
but Christmas is supposed to be a joyous time.

PRAYERS for those who feel hopeless

There is ALWAYS hope
But sometimes does not seem so

    Joyce, thank you for opening up dialog on this very important issue. Life can be difficult at times. But we are never useless. I know we can feel that way. I have a friend right now, J who is in the hospital now for the 3rd time this year because of depression and bizarre behavior, thoughts, ideas, hearing strange things at night, unrealistic fears, etc. I feel so bad for her. But her problems are so much more than what I can handle, with my own depression and issues. I pray for her, and support as much as I can.
We also have some elderly women in our church who have such a difficult time getting around, are hard of hearing, poor eyesight, and feel they no longer have anything to contribute. BUT.... God wants to use them as prayer warriors. They can PRAY. He will listen.

Thank you so much for opening up and talking. Hugs, and prayers, Ravyna

    You are right that Depression is a huge issue and not just in the States....but all over the world (I'm in Canada). What I would say to the person who wrote this is the following:

Please remember that God loves all of his children (big and small) and he must have a purpose for you if he kept you here on this earth. He knows that you are hurting and he's trying to send you as much love and support as he can by giving you friends that care about you and who want to help you. You are not useless and everything you do has meaning to someone even if that's only to God. Please remember that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. Jesus willingly gave up his life to save yours and that means you are definitely worth something to Him and to me. Please keep on fighting and one day you'll find out what it is that God has in store for you. *hugs*

I hope that helps. I will also send along my prayers to this person and to you to help you find the words to support them.

    How sad that this lady feels that way. No one is ever useless and everyone has a purpose on God's green earth.
I certainly hope that she gets some help and very soon.

    Joyce, thanks for that message. I know there are people out there that recognize themselves. I hope they can contact a friend or professional who can help. I have taken my husband to the emergency room a couple of times and it sure isn't fun . Meds these days are very helpful. We know so much more than we did years ago. Once a doctor gave me some medicine for my ongoing fatigue. He said if it helps continue taking it. That was all the advice I got. Now, years later doctors and most people know much more. Just getting up and out among people can raise one's spirits. My husband used to take me out for a walk. It helped at least temporarily. We both had the problem at some point or another. I still take 2 meds for depression. Fatigue is my basic symptom but I can get to a point where I cry over nothing. I have low thyroid and also fibromyalgia. So my system is prone to depression. If anyone reading this is 'down' please get to the doctor or minister or priest or call a friend or admit it to someone in your home. Help is out there. You need not suffer in silence. A good cry can be healing, too. But continuing to cry or be sad at length is a sign more help is needed. If anyone wants to email me --go ahead. I am a pretty good listener. Chris emoticon emoticon
