Depression is like drowning, except you can see everyone around you breathing comfortably pretending to try to help you . To be honest, I don't know why I'm here or writing all this. Basically I don't even have a strong relationship with God . I understand I'm a teen(pretty much 17) but I've been depressed for over 3 months now, because of my dad actually,who eventually claims to love me, but won't let me follow my dream. I know no one would care to read this. I just really need someone to talk to before I die of depression. I know God loves me, he just hardly ever shows it the way I expect and that's why in my mind, he's been reduced to an "if". Somebody help me.

I be feeling the same way I times I get so depress that I don't see any solution but to kill myself but as soon as I pick up a razor or knife to do God is always send someone my way or the television is play something to remind me that God still loves me and he hasn't forgotten about me my life is so messed up but I still believe God has a plan for me even thou things aren't going my way now and it feels like my dreams are just passing by I know God is here with me so my advise to you is be strong whenever you feel depress listen to some music and read a verse or two even thou you don't feel God doesn't mean he isn't with you. You are his child and he loves you more then anything

Hey, first off, I want to thank all of you for your amazing replies. At least, it's helped me move on a little, though I don't know for how long. I kinda found it hard to send "Alma Wright" a friend request on Facebook,so with due respect, you could add me up on Facebook (Darit Dob)I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year! 😟😟

I came from a broken home as a child. At the age of about 11 or 12 I began thinking about suicide. Why live if all my life at that point was going to be about abuse, right? I was saved at the age of 12 when a Gideon came to my school and shared the gospel. I still struggled with those thoughts until my early 20's. By then I was divorced and a single mom, severely depressed, losing my mind and no desire to live. People would tell me to see a counselor and get on meds, but I refused. I said, "if this God I serve is real and His Word is real, then He will heal me". I woke up 10 min earlier every morning before work and would give God all I could give Him... 5 min in the Word and 5 min in prayer. I went to bed every night and all I could pray was God Help Me. I'm not sure how long I did this, but one morning I woke up a completely new person. Everything I struggled with was gone! I was on cloud nine for weeks. It has been about 17 yrs and I have never been the same! God did in me what meds could never do.. It all depends on where you put your faith. Trust in the Lord. Put His Word to the test in your life. He'll touch you and you will never be the same. God Bless.
