I apolagize for breaking the rule. I just got carried away I guess.
Please do not feel that you need to apolagize...It is something that you feel passionate about and it is completely understandable.  I did just want you to know we cant have all the religious quotes on the site for future referance.
When I say I gave up, I mean i quit fighting everything and everybody.  I do not control the universe.  Sometimes a depressed person can say they are tired,  and asked what they did all day will reply "nothing". This is because of how fast thoughts are happening in our brain.  Medicine is for that.
Often it is because of internal conflicts.  This requires a close fearless and honest look at our self.
We can see what we can change and work on that. we can also see things we cannot change and try to accept that. You are very much correct in this insight and when we are depressed or having so many negative thoughts this is so very difficult to do...to see inside and determine what is correct and true.
You are great people and I need you.
  What I say is based on my own experience and what works for me may not work for someone else.
Thanks!
Your a great person Paul and I think your experiance and life lessions are valued here.  Take care ~ Hugs

^^ Im really sorry Els about your condition. I dont know much about MS but I hope you feel better soon. *console*
Medication is not for everyone. Im not saying noone should take them because when I did I felt a lot better. It does help the process. But in my case, I think that meds will only mask the real issue. Once the real issue is taken care of I think/hope everything else will fall into place. Its a quick fix.

Thank you qut you are very sweet.  I have learned to live with my MS and I deal with it very well.  Perhaps it was a matter of excepting it...I dont know.  Anyhow, I agree that medication isnt for everyone, that is for a physician and of course yourself to decide, as only you know what is best for you.

I agree that meds cover up the problem at times. But in most times they help you get thru the problems. One thing that a counsler told me that made me take a step back and look at my life was:
In order to get better you have to change your enviroment as that is what is making you sick.
That line is what gave me the strenght to leave my now exhusband and decide that I would never put up with the abuse again.

Shy, I believe your strength was always there -- this just helped you to find it again. Abusive relationships wear us down and we think we've lost our strength, but you *are* a strong woman, and I'm so glad you got yourself out of that situation.
