Christianity and Depression

Posted by Sent4 on March 12, 2004, at 7:41:27

I only started taking Rx for depression 2 weeks ago and only because I started crying for no reason as the Dr's office. He caught me on a bad day. So I was forced to tell him how long this has been going on, etc. How embarassing.

Anyway, as a Christian, not being able to "pray through", "overcome", or "get victory over" depression caused guilt.

This guilt was not caused by any religious doctrines or my parents. It seems to be home grown right inside of me.

Fortunately, when I was researching my Rx on the internet, I read about the symptoms of depression which, wah lah, include guilt. I feel guilty a lot and frequently find myself praying for forgiveness. Now I know better than this. I know God loves me. I know my sins are forgiven. Even more, I know He understands and cares about this stupid anxiety/depression.

Anyone else have this guilt beating them up? It's annoying. It's defeating.
