I am so sorry you are having such a hard time.

I go through periods of anxiety (just hits me upside the head... WHAM! there it is!), and occasionally bouts of depression (only had deeeep suicidal type depression once... what a horror!).

Anyway, my anxiety does seem to just pop up, but when I usually think about it, I can find some sort of trigger (even if it's too much caffeine and not enough sleep, per se).

I dealt with the whole "Christian having anxiety/depression" issue myself and just resolved in my heart that just because I am a Christian doesn't mean I won't experience all the difficulties and realities of life on this earth as everyone else. Don't allow yourself to feel condemned about being human.

You can have all the faith in God in the world and still suffer with depression, anxiety, cancer, or any other human illness. I had to accept that.

I have learned to work hard at not "overspiritualizing" my anxiety or depression. Sometimes it just "is."

Lynn, try your best to rest, relax (a good 1 hour massage from a massage therapist works wonders for me!), take a nice long bath, and if you have anti anxiety medicine that helps, take that when you feel it creeping in.

Don't beat yourself up for feeling this way. You are a great person with a strong faith! Keep pressing on..

(((hugs)))
