Hi. Firstly I hope everyone else is doing ok and I will be praying for you too.
I’m a 42 year old mum, just been through nearly six months of horrible depression and during that time, a series of medical tests which really shook me up. Not only that, I had a bunch of spiritual issues that I was trying to sort through at the same time. I could barely get out of bed some days and cried pretty much constantly.
Things have improved a little but I am having some pnysical pain lately which is worrying me and I still tend to relapse into a bit of fear & depression. I get irritable with my 7 year old son which is breaking my heart because he is noticing that I’m getting angry with him, and the last thing I want to do is damage his self-esteem. My mother used to treat me this way and I remember never really feeling accepted by her. My marriage of 15 years is also faltering a bit because of everything that’s been going on. I believe God is there and he’s answered my prayers in the past, but I really feel alone right now. Please keep me in your prayers as I don’t feel strong enough to get through it on my own. Thank you.
