267. One Sunday in 2006

Depressed manFrom my journal…

“The depression was so horrible this afternoon that I cried. Then I cried out to Jesus, ‘Take my hand. Lead me. Simplify my life as I look only to You. I am at the end of my rope. But though You slay me, yet will I praise You.’

“Psalm 107. ‘The people cried out to the Lord in the distress of their affliction and troubles, and He healed them and brought them out of their distress.’ They cried out to the Lord, as I did this afternoon, and finally He calmed me down.”

Today as I write this posting, depression is far away.

About Patrick Day

In 2010, I escaped from four long years of deep, dark depression. This blog shares lessons I learned from those years as depicted in my autobiography - How I Escaped from Depression - as well as other insights about depression and anxiety that only come from someone who has gone through it. When you have a heart attack, you become an expert in heart attacks. When you have diabetes, you become an expert in that condition. As such, I am an expert in depression, with a four-year experiential degree and graduate studies in how to live a life going forward that keeps the ever-lurking Depression at a healthy distance.
