Everyday our enemy surrounds us. Our enemy effects each and one of us. Today, I found out their is another random shooting at a Fed Ex building in Atlanta.... A week ago a young boy with history of depression stabs a young girl because she said no to going to the prom. A dear friend of mine shot herself. My heart goes out to their families..Depression is a serious thing and if not check it can bring about our enemy...To all my dear friends do not take your depression lightly.. Seek help if you can...( 1 Cor .15:26)

Amen to your comment Anna regarding Depression

Comment by Anna May on May 13, 2014 at 8:44am

Most of us know what it is like to experience a wave of sadness. In time—perhaps in just a matter of hours or days—the feeling subsides. Clinical depression, however, is far more serious. In what way? “Those of us who are not depressed know that the rides our emotions take us on eventually end,” explains Dr. Mitch Golant, “but the depressed individual experiences the ups and downs, twists and turns of his feelings as if on a runaway train without a clear sense of how or when—or even if—he can ever get off.”

Symptoms of Major Depression
● A depressed mood, most of the day, nearly every day, for at least two weeks
● Loss of interest in once pleasurable activities
● Significant weight loss or gain
● Excessive sleep or the opposite, insomnia
● An abnormal speeding or slowing of motor skills
● Excessive fatigue, with no discernible cause
● Feelings of worthlessness and/or inappropriate guilt
● Diminished ability to concentrate
● Recurring thoughts of ending it all
  Some of these symptoms may also indicate dysthymia—a mild but more chronic form of depression
[Please NOTE]
This list is presented to serve as an overview and not to provide a basis for making a self-diagnosis. Also, some of the symptoms by themselves may be symptoms of other problems besides depression.

As you said, please seek help if you are experiencing depression.
