I have suffered from severe depression and pain for some 20 years. I am on disability. I was getting really discouraged and felt that my life had ended before it started. I finally decided that I needed to have a heart to heart with the Lord. I prayed real hard that night for healing. The next few days, I suffered from intense sweats, sweating, and chills. This went on for 3 days. Also, because I did not have the money to refill my Seroquel, I had been off of it for a few days. Anyway, I now feel like I have gotten my life back! I am not having any pain, except for an occasional pain in my lower back. I also am not having any of the negative thoughts I used to have. And, I am ashamed to admit it, but I was suicidal and did make attempts on my life many times. I had been in psych facilities for 7 years in the 90s. I am totally rid of that now. I am happy, maybe a little too happy for some people. I went to my doctor last night, and though he was a Christian, like me, he was trying to attribute my happiness to becoming manic. Well, that was never a diagnosis for me. I won't say I will always be upbeat or that things won't bother me, but for now, I am happy.
