    Does this site help anyone?

    One way out of depression for me was to focus on a goal of mine, whether that be a small goal or a larger one. When I was in my worst depressed state, I was living at home with my parents at the age of 42, I had lost all independence as I knew it, and my greatest dream had been crushed. I was suicidally depressed for 8 months straight. I came here, and people helped to keep me afloat for those 8 months. I was in a pit of despair. I was only working one very small part time at home gig (consulting) and earning very little money. Well, because I had to earn more money and work full time to get out of my situation, I decided to take a professional development course. I forced myself to study the videos and take notes every single day, even though 100% of me wanted to just crawl back in bed and disappear from the world... forever. But I forced myself every day for two plus months to do this course and to finish it. I took the final exam and failed the exam because of my lack of concentration and depression, which meant I did not receive the actual professional certificate. But I did not care. I still earned it in my mind and added the course to my resume and spoke of the course in interviews. After finishing the course, some time later, I landed a full time job. So, my goals were: 1) to complete the course and 2) to land a full time job. I focused on both the entire summer, and man, did it feel like the biggest accomplishment ever to help myself like I did, even in the depths of my depression. And lo and behold, accomplishing those goals lifted my self esteem again and gave new or renewed energy in life. My depression lifted. I started working full time again and my self esteem soared. It took me eight full months to come out of it, but I did it. So my advice is to focus on a goal you really want to accomplish in life, go out and achieve it -- even if it takes baby steps each day to achieve, at least you're working towards something that will help pull you out of a rut and a hole. It worked for me. And working on one's self esteem does wonders for depression. My two cents!!

    Thanks so much, Sober, and thanks SO much for believing me. I know how crazy it all sounds!!!!!! Yeah, it was very overwhelming, to say the least. I really did not want my life to change in that way. All I knew was that I hadn't ever asked to be a channel/medium. It happened TO me after my attempt, and 12 years later, after so much confusion and disorientation, I decided I didn't want to pursue this kind of life. I really don't know what to make of things.... I mean, on the one hand, it's an amazing honor to be asked to speak the words of the Lord and to help heal others with the Lord's help. Then I got really scared. I worried I would have to recite biblical verses and become someone else. They said I wouldn't have to and that I would end up reciting a few of the Bible's verses in my work - but to remove demons from people and to be on stage doing this work? It freaked me out. I had several of the ArchAngels helping me and guiding me. At one point, a host of Angels came to me and spoke to me about this work. And I know it sounds like I am making this up in my head or that it was some kind of psychotic breakdown that I had. But for me, it wasn't at all. They were speaking words through me out loud that were not my own. They made hand gestures with my hands, and I literally FELT their higher vibrating energy in and around my body. They read my thoughts and then spoke my EXACT thoughts out loud back to me. They were answering my questions out loud as they arose in my head. The Lord said to me: "you have many many questions -- all will be answered in due time". I was speaking to the 7th dimension, and I felt it within my body. My body vibrated with their energy. It was like nothing else I've ever experienced. And to have the Lord Himself speaking through me and to me? I was like, "why me, why me, why me?" That's when I was told I am an Angel. He talked to me about my belief in a basic tenant of humanity: RESPECT. And he spoke to me about my strong beliefs in JUSTICE, TRUTH and COMPASSION for others. The Lord himself has a very strong and powerful voice, and also a most loving and kind energy. But when he spoke, it was STRONG. It is REALLY hard to write about this and to share this publicly, but if people want to think I'm completely nuts, that's OK. I don't mind. It's the internet. But I know I am not nuts, and that this was a very real channeling/mediumship experience that I had. I cannot share much of it with many people IRL because many people do not believe in a spirit world, an afterlife, a higher power, Angels or demons for that matter. I experienced all of the above --- all of it. I had demons and darker, earthbound spirits tormenting me as well. The Angels told me they were fighting me and trying to prevent me from getting closer to God. My head is STILL reeling. I cannot even believe that this happened. I cannot wrap my brain around it all. It does sound and seem like a crazy, trippy dream.

    I've had lots of supernatural experiences in my life. I know others who have as well. I saw your last post. I think a lot of people have had things happen to them like this or other amazing experiences. I can certainly believe you are a reincarnated angel. I know how hard it must have been to post this. I would say I wish I knew how to do what you did but I would become overwhelmed and wouldn't be able to handle it.

    Yes, I think this site can be helpful. Sometimes there are small things that help. Just a bit of relax, knowing that I'm not alone with suffering. A bit of friendliness and love can be really healing.

    The people here help you because they want your life to be better. Right now any of us could be doing anything. We choose to help others if we can. In my real life the people are in 2 groups the people that don't care and the ones that hope I die. The people here have always been there for me to help me get through impossible times I would have never gotten through alone. Without this place I'm certain I would be dead.

    Yeah not in a million years did I expect to hear you can't come into this bank without wearing a mask. I've done it once never again. They're trying to phase out going inside of a bank and eventually there won't be a bank to go to at all not even drive thru because there won't be money.
