  1. Hey! Sorry this is going on! Depression is tough and I have suffered with it as well. Mine was during the time my sons health got really bad. He is doing good now, but I still often think about it all the time and how low it gets me. I will be praying for you and I found some articles that you may want to check out! Hope to hear from you soon! https://bit.ly/2hcTFzT
  2. Hey! Sorry this is going on and sorry to hear about your mom. I felt very similar, when my son got sick. He was diagnosed with a rare auto immune disease. I have seen him in some very rough times and during those times, I couldnt function at all. I slept all the time, I was failing at everything I worked on. All I wanted, was to sleep and be left alone. Long story short, my sons health started to bounce back and I learned that all I was focusing on was all the negative around me... I was missing all the positive that I didnt want to look at. Have you considered talking to a pastor or a counselor? I will be praying for you.

    Hello

    Hey sorry this is going on. I am a full time working father as well and know the struggles and pressures that is involved. I also worry about losing my job all the time and get worried about the "What ifs". Something that makes me feel better is that I know my family would support me and help me if something did happen. I know you said that "if" you lose your job you couldnt afford a therapist... But have you considered couples counseling? I believe a marriage is worth fighting for, even when things seem impossible. I will be praying for you and hope to hear from you soon!
  4. Hey, sorry this happened. I had a very, very similar thing happen to me. The night before our vacation, I ran out to get a few supplies before the trip and on the way, I seen her car at a local store. I pulled in to find her in the back of the car with her "cousin"... and some other girl driving them around. Nothing was going on and I believed her. She acted the same way during the vacation and later in the trip is when everything was revealed. I was broken. I would like to tell you I have been married now for 8 years and would go through all the pain over because of the lady that is now in my life. God blessed the broken road for sure. I will be praying for you.

    Just needing to talk about this

    Hey! I can remember the dating days... It seems like I stayed stressed out and always worried about things in my relationships. Several years ago, I was done badly by a girlfriend. We was going on vacation to the beach and the night before I ran to the store to pick up some last minute supplies. On my way to the store, I seen her car in town. I stopped to see if she was doing the same and it was her cousin driving with her in the back seat with some dude. She said it was her cousin and I was dumb enough to believe her. Long story short, I was hurt. Relationship after relationship seemed to go bad. But God blessed the broken road when I finally found the girl I now call my wife. Hang in there! The right girl is just around the corner! I will be praying for you!

    Trying to help a friend in another town

    Hey! Sorry this is going on and it is nice to see people helping people! You really seem like a good friend. It wasn't too long ago, that my son had some health issues. I went into a deep depression where I slept all the time and avoided conversations. I just wanted to be alone. But what got me through was my faith and close friends/family that never quit seeking to show their love for me. I will be praying for the both of you and hope to hear from you soon. I found some resources that may give you some insight. https://bit.ly/2hcTFzT

    Maddening Predicament

    Hey! Sorry this is going on. Back in my dating days... I am getting old, lol.... I was dating a girl that I knew was the one. We was going on a vacation together and the night before we left, I had to run to the store to get some supplies I had forgotten. While driving to the store that night, I seen her car at a store on the way. I stopped by to find her in the back of the car with some other guy. Long story-short, I was pretty upset about the whole ordeal. But 3 months later, I found the girl I call my wife. God surely did bless the broken road for me and it made me stronger. So... I married her around 8 years ago. We now have a 5 year old son and a little one on the way. But one day my son got diagnosed with a rare liver/ auto immune disease. Everything came crashing down... I also did not have the best childhood. It was filled with fights after fights. I fell into a place of darkness. All I wanted to do was sleep and harp on all the bad things that has ever happened to me. But my sons health started getting better. His strength started getting stronger and he is doing very well today! But the only thing that got me through the rough times was prayer and faith. Things got better and I was only focusing on all the bad around me and was missing all the beautiful. Have you considered talking to a counselor or a pastor? I will be praying for you! Hope to hear from you soon! I also found some resources that you may like to check out... *link removed*

    Why

    Hey! Sorry you feel this way! When my son was around 2, he was diagnosed with a rare disease. I was in a very similar mind set, with depression and anxiety. All I wanted to do was sleep. I guess it just made me forget for awhile. But my son started to get better in health and everything started to line back up into place. I was just focusing on all the bad around me. I was missing all the beautiful around me. Have you considered talking to a counselor or a pastor? It did help me. I will be praying for you. Hang in there. I also found some information that might be helpful. 'Looking Up From the Stubborn Darkness' on Listly(dot)ly

    Unstable mind

    Hey! Sorry this is going on and glad you are talking about this. Not to long ago, I was in the same boat as you. My son, was diagnosed with a rare auto immune/ liver disease. It shook me. I was in the such a deep depression, that all I did was sleep. I woke up scared and went to sleep scared. My anxiety was beyond my control. But things got better! My sons health started to increase and he is as normal as any other kid. I was only focusing on the darkness around me and I was missing all the beautiful. Hang in there! Things will get better! Have you considered talking to someone, such as a counselor or a pastor? It helped me. I will be praying for you and hope to hear from you soon! I also found some articles that might be a benefit. https://bit.ly/2hcTFzT
  10. Hey! Sorry you are going through this. I found out about 3 years ago, that my son has a rare liver/ auto-immune disease. So rare, that there is only 16 cases known. He is doing well now, but I had found myself in a very relating situation. I just wanted to be alone and was always thinking of the... "What If". The only thing that got me through it was my faith. I stayed in prayer and put my trust in God. I seemed to get a peace that I was needing and my anxiety was gone. I am praying for you and hope to hear from you soon!
