    Hello to all my brothers and sisters,

    I've posted before in the depression board, but felt lead to post here today. I think it's because I know that ruminating on my problems doesn't help me (and that's what I tend to do when I go to the depression room). When I'm feeling crappy about my life, I need to praise God more. I need to remember that when I least feel like doing it, is when I really need to do it the most! Praise God for all of you in this room!

    God Bless,
    Craig

    We all need to praise God with our voices, and shout His glories both in good times and bad.

    I am a bit late in reading the posts here, but wanted to welcome you to this board. I read your profile & I hope & pray God will give you the desires of your heart.
    I too suffer from depression related to FM, but am not doing badly in that quarter at present, which i amgrateful to God for.
    Coming to this board has made an amazing difference to my life. although I don't get here every day, I do pray for all I can.
    I hope you will return & add the strength of your prayers to ours for all those who request help.
    Linda.

    Welcome! I just had a short bout of depression after surgery. It's very hard to feel that way and it's so hard to get yourself out of it. It's very commendable that you are trying to "praise God" in the midst of your depression. Singing along with Ron Kenoly praise tapes really helps me...his music is anointed and really brings you into the presence of God.

    I also use thankfulness which helps me. There is a scripture that says, "He who offers thank offerings prepares the way that I may show him the salvation of God".

    I have tried to put this into practice each day by taking few minutes to consider what I have to be thankful for. I think about how I have a soft, clean bed to sleep on...no bugs or mosquitos, etc. How I have good food in the refrigerator. I have a running toilet. I have clean clothes. I have shoes to wear. Despite the many, many losses from my illness and how severe it's become, I try to realize that so many people suffer in varying ways around the world and we all have something to be thankful for. Life is not going the way I want it to go by any means but I can still be thankful for what I have.

    I hope that this helps too. I know that depression is very hard to deal with and I hope my suggestion is helpful. I don't deal with depression continually so I hope that what I said is helpful and not annoying:) It's just what helps me sometimes.

    I hope you find added peace and joy this week;)
    Love, Monkeykat
