Lord and Father, please be with our sister Connie today...Thank you that she took the chance to step out and post her needs and concerns. Now turn her thoughts to you, refocus on your provision rather than her needs. You have promised 'never leave you nor forsake you' Praise and thank you for that! Amen

Oh Connie! I am so sorry for all that is going on.

Dearest Heavenly Father - please take hold of Connie's hand and hold her close today. She is going through so much right now. Cover her in Your peace and give her wisdom and discernment in what she needs to do. I pray that the new doctor will have an open ear, mind, and heart to her struggles. I ask that this doctor will set her on the right course to help her depression. I also lift up her husband. We don't know what is going on in his mind, but You do. I pray that he will be open to visiting a doctor and finding treatment for his mood swings and anger. I pray that Your hand cover this situation and that You bring healing to both Connie and her husband. I lift up this prayer in Jesus' precious and holy name. Amen.

Prayer is needed.....
I have no one to really talk to. The embarrassment keeps me quiet.. I have my first doctors appointment in 2 years due to no medical insurance. Sadly its not till Feb 13th. It is with a new doctor...I am expecting to get back on my Paxil. I need it so badly for my mood swings and depression. I believe my husband also needs to be on it. His mood swings are getting really bad. Once I meet this doctor and see if I like him, I will make my husbands appointment. My marriage is so rocky and seems to be getting worse. He has such burst of anger that it is unreal. This anger has never been toward me but others. Yesterday after leaving H & R to get our taxes done. I had made an appointment and we went to the wrong office. They called the other one to let them know we were on our way. My husband had a meltdown in the parking lot. All over a man moving his truck forward a spot. He was right beside our car. It made no sense. I had more that enough room to get in. My husband stood there yelling at this man. I was near him and was apologizing to him,. My husband just would not shut up. I wanted to hide of embarrassment. Two adult men yelling. I was so shocked, I went to him trying to settle him down and he finally got in the car. I just opened his door after he slammed it and ask if he was crazy. I closed it and walked away. A good half mile away. If I had a good job and the finances I don't believe I would have stopped.
He has done this before. He is also twisting the truth. He came home two weeks ago from the laundry matt telling me about this man and his three little kids. Telling me the man needed blankets. That he ask for them. I mentioned it to the pastors wife and Sunday school teach about it. The Sunday school teacher left a bag at the church with my name on it at the church. I am the custodian there. There were blankets for each of the children and their dad too. Well last week at the dinner we had at another church function I over heard my husband telling this story. This time it was different. The man hadn't asked for blankets. Bob just noticed how bad the ones were and how little they had. He decided they needed them. So which is the truth? He is doing this a lot. I am big on telling the truth. My Mom lied all the time...it always upset me. I apologized to the ladies and offered to give the blankets back. But they still want me to offer them to this man. We don't have his name or number. My husband just runs into him all the time at the laundry mat. I can't take my husbands word as truth anymore. His son did this story telling is what I call it since it isn't the truth. I see where he got it. He is in heaven now. I just get so stressed and then the depression hits hard.

I just came out of a bad one. It lasted a week. It was the man and the blankets and the shame of having to tell the ladies that put me in this one. I do a blog and I can see it getting worse the stress and depression. I was shocked to see it was a week that had passed. I had thought it was only 3 days. I was getting mail and notices...asking if I was ok. I have a team of lovely ladies on here. They know I hide when I get depressed. I don't want this parking lot scene to send me into another one. I have been constantly praying for guidance and help. Gods Help...his direction. I just don't know what to do. I am holding on for this doctors appointment. I know the meds will help big time. I do believe that meds will help m husband too. I felt drawn to unload this burden here. Is it God directing me to....could be. I just didn't want to blog again about my struggle with my husband and the stress. So I found myself coming here. I need guidance. I so Love God! I so need his comfort. I am so unhappy with my marriage. I don't want this to affect my weight loss. That will only make this worse. I am a very large lady. I have lost 59 pounds. I'm at 276 today. I am working at getting a good 25 more off so I can physically work full time. The job I have is only 10 hours a week. I can walk to it and to it when I wish. As long as the church is ready by Sunday morning ....they are happy. But I need a full time job. I am sorry for unloading all this here. I just didn't know where to go. I am out of state from my family. Shame is keeping it hid from them. My husband had good about him. He never gets upset with me. But the story telling and crazy out burst at others are getting worse and is just stressing me out big time. One day he will have a melt down at the wrong person and get shot or hit. Ok enough. Thanks for listening. Thank you Lord for directing me here.

Praying for you too Lindsey.

A friend at work last week suggested I listen to a sermon by Louie Giglio titled Hope Sinks preached on 1/11/15. I watched it and was greatly blessed. A great message for anyone going through a tough spot.

Saturday night we had a long message on my voicemail from my brother asking that my husband come back to work. He did not apologize or seem remorseful at all for we had gone through last week. Obviously we are still hurt and angry at how he handled the situation. Because I did not know what to say or how it would come across I simply sent a text saying we would talk later. My husband and I kind of feel like another door is opening up for him as he was contacted by a local business last Thursday and has an interview set up with them tomorrow. So...there's the update. I am handling it much better since our talk with our pastor as I am remembering that God has a plan. Prayers are still appreciated as we need to be sure to listen and follow His leading. Thanks friends!

~~~Leisa~~~

One day at a time. One step at a time. I can do ALL things through Christ who gives me strength!

Thank you all for your support and encouragement. You're quite right - it's much easier to be kind to others than to ourselves sometimes. I find waves of hopelessness washing over me and have to keep reminding me of God's goodness, power and grace.

Great news that your husband has been contacted about a job, Leisa! Let us know what happens, won't you?!

Leisa, THEY called HIM? That's very promising! And I'm glad your husband is taking it well, it's so much harder when they get depressed or start to feel worthless. I'll be praying for both of you, for a new job for him and restoration of the relationship with your brother for both of you.

Lindsay, we all have those days from time to time. Please be gentle with yourself, it makes me really sad to read you calling yourself stupid. emoticon I don't have a daughter, but I'm trying to use this tactic lately - only speak to yourself the way you speak to your own daughter. It helps me to put things in a better, more hopeful perspective when I can remember to do it! *big hugs* to you. And hey, I'm jealous that you have a mountain view on your walk to work!

I'm praying for you both, and having faith that we are ALL having a better day. And oh yes, if you work Monday-Friday like I do.....WEEKEND AHEAD!

I agree with Littlelouie...give yourself credit for what you did do. If you take out the "buts" in your post, I notice you worked, exercised, and did well with eating until evening. That definitely counts for something!

Belle---been praying for you. Dark, rainy, dreary weather is very hard for me. I'm glad you've had a better day since.

Thank you again friends for the prayers. I can tell they are working. My husband is handling this well. We met with our pastor yesterday. He suggested a local business that would be a good match to my hubby's skills. He reminded me off several truths that he has hammered into my head in previous counseling sessions. I am happy to say I feel better. Today my husband got a call from the business before he even had a chance to apply. He is doing the online application tonight.

Bellecurl - it's really good to hear you had a much better day yesterday. emoticon
Well done for working, exercising, sticking to your calorie target AND getting 8 hours' rest - that's a HUGE achievement!

I failed on almost all of those yesterday - I worked, but couldn't concentrate very well, I exercised but not as much as I'd planned, I did OK on eating until the evening when I totally failed and then I stayed up much too late so didn't get enough rest. Stupid. How old do I have to be before I finally learn?!

Needless to say, I'm not feeling great about myself today.

BUT I could see snowy mountains in sunshine as I walked to work this morning, which reminded me that God is always good.

Thank you ladies for your helpful suggestions and especially for your prayers. Yesterday was a better day! We had sunshine (o blessed sunshine!), I had a very productive day at work, I stayed within my dietary guidelines, I allowed myself an hour of hobby time, I got exactly 8 hours of rest last night, and I went to the gym this morning. For me, the gym is better than walking outside for a variety of reasons but I do appreciate the spirit of Lindsay's suggestion to notice the beauty around me :-) I have one of those daylight lamps (an OttLite) for my hobby, does anyone know if it has the same effect as the lights that are sold specifically for SAD? They are both supposed to be full spectrum lights I think.

emoticon ladies for reaching out and stating your needs....the first step in "Change" is to define the problem....
Then look at options and resources...3 is make a decision...4 is take action...5 is like back to the start....evaluate if your action helped emoticon

Lord God, through Jesus I lift before your presence these ladies with depression. Give each the strength today to take the next of these 5 steps. I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13

Hello BelleCurl. If you find going to the gym too difficult at the moment, why don't you set yourself the challenge of going for a brisk walk - move your arms and walk quite quickly (as if to get it over with!). You could even set yourself a goal of having to look for ten nice things (eg. raindrops on a spider's web, a small flower, a bird, a fluffy cloud, a pretty dress in a shop window) or thinking of ten things to give thanks for - and not allowing yourself to go home until you've seen or thought of the ten things.

This is only a suggestion - feel free to ignore it if it doesn't help - I just thought it might help you to have a more positive, achievable goal than 'going to the gym'.

Let us know how you get on - or even which ten things you saw or gave thanks for!

God bless

I feel it happening again, like every year. The holidays are over, the excitement of a fresh new year is over, and my seasonal depression is creeping up on me. The first symptom is always tiredness - I won't make myself go to the gym and I will sleep 9 or more hours every night. Please pray for me - that I can halt the progression of the depression and keep exercising. Exercise is supposed to help, but for me it's always the first thing to go emoticon And then, of course, I start thinking about how I could do it if I just TRIED HARD ENOUGH which makes me more depressed. Such a vicious cycle. Thank you for your prayers and support.

Thank you so much dear friends for the prayers. I started reading Beth Moore's Get Out of that Pit last night. It made a lot of sense. Going back to work myself today was definitely helpful as it is hard to focus on my worries when I am surrounded by lively 7 year olds! emoticon I am tired though as I woke up several times last night and had a hard time turning off the negative.

I greatly appreciate the prayers. emoticon

Cathleeen, Ravyna and Leisa - I've just prayed for you.

I'm so sorry you're going through such awful times - I know what it's like.

My philosophy has become: "Life is tough, but God is good - always."

Leisa - a quote which I love and which you might find useful: "Don't believe everything you think!"

I want to lift my sisters up to you in prayer Lord. Shame and defeat are ugly things to battle. Christ Jesus, you have promised to be there to help us to fight our battles and even fight them for us. Father I pray you will quickly provide a new job for SUNFLOWERGAL40's husband. One that was even better than the one he had working for her brother. Provide for their needs and show them what way you would have them go. Father also bring reconciliation between she and her brother. AMEN.

I have spent the past 24 hours crying and depressed. My brother came by last night to basically fire my husband who has worked for him for 8 years. I know God has a plan, but in the dark and pain I struggle with all the what ifs and the guilt and shame. I know y'all understand from suffering with your own depression. My husband doesn't understand. But by the time the night was over I was convinced it was all my fault, I was all alone, God was tired of bailing me out, I am a bad mother/wife/teacher/friend/sister, and the dark thoughts go on and on...

SUNSHINEQUEEN know that you are not alone in your pain and shame. I too need prayer. Have allowed myself to gain back 40 of the 50 lbs I lost, and have driven myself into high blood pressure. Have become inactive, and need to get back into exercise. I fell on Dec 23, and yes, was injured so I wasn't able to exercise, but can get back now.

Please pray that I woul rely on God's strength to become disciplined. Thanks to all on the team.

emoticon Lord God, be present today with our new friend SUNSHINEQUEEN65. Bring her comfort in her distress. Bring her strength to continue on, and may she feel your love wrapped around her like a lovingly stitched quilt.

I've just prayed for you Ravyna (and your friend) and also for you Beekahbug.

May you know God to be your soul's sufficiency.

It is indeed easy to get lost in Grief..... I don't like the idea of 'distraction' and never thinking of people you love. But change the focus.
Can you picture them in Heaven? Do you believe they are in Heaven? Which Bible character would each be having "High Tea" with? or playing golf with or....What hymn writer would Grandma to visiting?
Know they are free of pain and daily life such as traffic or whatever bugged him....

My Mother, Vera Mae....I imagine ...not meeting with Moses or important people...no, sharing food and laughing with young women, or gathering a group of small children who died of Ebola in 2014 and showing them around Heaven. Oh, I wrote this for Beekahbug but I now have happy tears... Thank you for the trigger to write this out!

I just saw your post, Beekahbug. I'm sorry you are struggling. I think Ravyna has a good idea. Give thanks for all the wonderful memories you have. I'll be praying that today will be easier.

I will be praying for you, Beekahbug.
Why not write out your thoughts in a journal about the special times you had with your grandparents and offer thanks to Gof for them, rather than try to distract yourself away from those positive memories. Missing is real, but I think remembering and being thankful has been more helpful to me.
May God is able to be your strength.

I hate to take your time, but I'm really struggling tonight. I lost my 4th of 5 grandparents in 2012. Two of them were especially hard for me (my parents didn't tell me about my grandma until 2 weeks later because I was in Ireland when she died). Well, my grandpa's birthday is coming up and I'm really struggling with it. I had a special relationship with my Grandpa Bell and my Grandma Gibson. It's to the point that the therapist is telling me to use distraction every time I think of them. But, it's not working tonight.

Please pray
Trying to help a married abused women get away from her husband. Pray the Lord will give her the strength to not fear change and be willing to make the break for a better life.
For me, I fell last Tues, 12/23, on to my chest, and knees. My left breast is still in pain. I need wisdom.
