Hi everyone,
        Sometimes I just don't know what to do.  It seems like this loneliness and depression I deal with never really goes away.  I have no money to see a counselor, which I want to see one again so badly, it has helped me in the past.  Medication doesn't help me at all.  This is really hard for me because I am a christian and people always tell me christians aren't supposed to be depressed.  That comment is hard for me to deal with.   I honeslty don't know what to do anymore.  I usually feel alone most of the time.  I don't have a career and don't make enough money to live on my own right now.  I have no idea what to go back to school for.  All I've ever wanted was to be a wife and a mother and those things just seem a million miles away right now.  I've never wanted a huge career.  I feel so stuck and I feel like I am never going to get out of my parents house.   The burden of finances and everything else is depressing me so much I just don't even know why I am here sometimes.  Thanks for listening

Hi Gabby,
Yes Christians do get depressed, so don't let anybody tell you different.  It is a chemical embalance in our brains.  So anybody could get it.  Just because you are depressed, doesn't mean that you aren't a true christian.  So let that thought go.
It is a hard time of year right now, for everybody.  There is a lot of stress during the holidays.  I know that you are working, but it wouldn't hurt to look for something better in the meantime.  You will get out of your parents house.  It just takes time.  Be patient and take life one day at a time, one moment if you have to.  It can be done.
Know that we all care about you here.  Try to keep that in mind, come here to vent or just to talk.  We are here for you.
Hugs, Karen
