Life can be extremely stressful, from work, school, bills, kids, relationships, and friendships, a person can easily become overwhelmed and possibly slip into depression. Depression can be defined as a state of severe unhappiness. When a person is suffering from depression, they may act abnormal, for example, they may not like the things that once liked before, they may be moody, withdrawn, loss of energy, feeling of worthlessness, difficulty thinking, change of appetite, change of sleep patterns and even thoughts of deaths and or suicide. When my father passed away, I fell into depression. I had difficulty sleeping at night, so I indulged in sleeping pills and alcohol to make the pain go away. It only made things worse. I found myself making poor decisions because I drank too much. In fact, that whole year was a blur. I couldn’t eat, sleep, or think properly. I often dreamed about him, which made my waking life very hard, because it was difficult for me to determine rather this whole thing was a dream. It was a living hell. I told myself, I was going to join him because I was unhappy on this earth, fortunately enough, I was too scared to harm myself, but the thoughts were still there in the back of my head. One day I decided to get on my knees and cry out to God.I asked him to heal me and comfort me during this time of depression. I was desperate.
