Dear Spriggy,
Allow me to use an analogy here.
A well known believer and author Joni Eareckson Tada was permantely paralyzed in a diving accident as a teen-ager.....

She prayed without ceasing that God would heal her...or allow her to die.

The Lord chose neither.

Instead...she has now helped thousands of christians struggling with vaious trials and tribulations through her testimony, books and workshops.

She could have given up.
She could have renounced her faith...and taken the position that since God didnt heal her...He must not be real, so why be a christian.

Instead she a very difficult life as a quadraplegec...and yet in the last 25 years has been a beacon of hope and inspiration to thousands.

My point is that even if God does NOT heal you supernatually of your ARE still important to Him and the Body of Christ.
Since you seem to have sought healing through your prayers and cryings to Him ( rest asurred He HAS heard you) then perhaps it is His Will for you right now, at this point in your continue to serve Him in spite of the very, very difficult depression you are in.

Seek help through the many medicines that are avaliable to us today...find a trusting person and/or professional christian counselor, and attack your depression through all of these ways.

Hope this helps~

your co-laborer in Christ & mental Illness..
