Hello all my friends and members of this great forum. 
I wish there was some miracle that could help all of us that suffer from depression but I haven’t found one yet. What I do know that  helps me is being able to talk about how I feel with other people including friends here in HealingWell.
I just broke free of a 4 month run of one of the nastiest spells of depression I have ever been through but hanging on to the thought that I would get better and support from others helped me make it through. Many times I was sure I would not survive the sadness and desolation I felt but today I can say I made it again and life is good.
So I leave you with this, “Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you don't believe it. Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future. Be brave; be strong; take your pills. Exercise because it's good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. Eat when food itself disgusts you. Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason.”

While it may not be the miracle that you wish for it still more than qualifies as a miracle.

Every day that a person with any kind of chronic condition makes it through is a miracle in its own right.

Hi Kitt,

I am so happy to hear that you are starting to feel better. Do keep us posted on how you are doing. I really have been thinking of you...

It is so hard when we are depressed. We feel like we are never ever going to feel good again. I am glad to hear that you are.

Hugs, Karen

Kitt, thanks for answering my post.

I will never take pills that aren't for me again. ;p I just want to say that some things that really make me happy when I am depressed is: Buying music on itunes, and then transporting the music to my ipod.
Then exercise with the music I buy: jogging in the beautiful trails, lifting weights, loud or relaxing music in the car, a relationship with the Lord. Trusting in God and giving thanks daily for all the little and big blessings I have and experience. I am so thankful for nature, wind, water, sun, heat, cold, rain, thunder, beautiful birds, people, laughter, and more + but to make a long expression short
I love mockingbirds! And today out of all days, when I was walking towards the church healing rooms today, for the first time! ;) I was by myself too! I was sooo happy because I heard like 3 or 4 mockingbirds singing all their beautiful songs. I felt like they were welcoming me ;p ^_^ It made me soo happy. The reason too is that, I was in the ER waiting room yesterday and two girls where beside me talkin all of a sudden one started talking about Heaven...one girl said, "I really believe that when I get to heaven, by house will have all kinds of bears" ;) and I commented, "Wow, you know, I've never thougth about that!" "But, now that you are talking about it, I can see that I will have all sorts of birds, especially mockingbirds, and cats! ;D
And then today...the small but yet the mysterious big blessings of life...Mockingbirds ♪♫ I felt like God truly does hear me. He loves me, and wants me to be healed, and wants alll of us to be happy.
I believe that when we focus on love, healing, forgiveness, peace, hope, and genuine giving, or even helping in any way...it gives joy and happiness to oneself and to others.
And makes our Heavenly Father Glad

Thank you everyone and I hope in some small way that my post will help others to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel even thow there are days, weeks and months when you feel like life will never be right again so keep your hope alive.
I have a 30 year history of Depression and I can truly say that life is good and along with the good we will have bad times.  Coming here and talking to others who know where you are coming from and what you are going through is truly helpful.
Karen - thank you for all your personal support and a huge thank you to all the members here in this forum.
