    Hi! I know a little of what you are going thru now.. maybe not to your extent, but some. I also had a bout with depression after my child was born, that has been a little over 12 years ago now, and it only lasted maybe 3 or 4 weeks, but I know that it is scary when it happens! I did not tell many about it because I felt ashamed, my husband knew and I finally told my mom after it was all over. I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone in this. We are all here for you when you need us. I will pray for you that God will lift your depression from you. I will also pray about your work situation.
    Take care and let us know how you are doing!

    I appreciate your prayers. I know that in times of trouble whether real or imagined in my mind, I have turned to God. He has never failed me.

    Unfortunately, I struggle with depression, anxiety, and oh so many doubts still. This is a test of my faith and trust and hope in the Lord that all things work together for the good.

    I am a sinner and have made poor choices throughout my life. I struggle that God has given me or allowed for me to have this load that seems so overwhelming because of my wavering faith. I view things in the natural and not patiently wait on the supernatural. I act on things that I should not instead of waiting on the Lord. That gets me in trouble.

    I believe that in James there is the part about wavering faith being tossed around like the sea which is useless. I'm there!!! Although I try not to be.

    Please continue praying.
