I’ve been a multiple sclerosis patient since 2013 and I’ve been dealing with depression since my diagnosis… I just recently tried to talk to my mom about my depression and she just shamed me about my feelings and anxieties… she thinks I can just pray away depression! I wish I had someone I could talk to about it… I’ve been slipping slowly into a very dark place and I’m not sure I’ll be able to pull myself out again… how do you push yourselves to want to get up everyday??

      Prayer isn't a bad thing. It will bring about a feeling that a weight has been lifted off your shoulders. That being said, it is not the only thing to do. God made man to be smart enough to become doctors and tharapists so that He can perform healing through them. Talk to a professional and keep talking here and you will find the reason slowly but surly.

      PS don't take it personally that your mom doesn't understand what you are going through. That is one thing that majorly changed my life, realizing that when people are like that that it is because of their beliefs and has nothing to do with me.

      When I was at a really bad time in my life I watched a show every day that made me laugh. That was my whole motivation for getting through the day, one hour long show. I kept telling myself that if I could still laugh I could make it through one more day. You just have to find one thing every day that you can hold on to. I would suggest watching Ridiculousness with Rob Dyrdek once in a while. That show makes me laugh out loud every time I watch it. If you don't like it don't worry, you can just find something else that makes you feel a little better. You only need one thing to look forward to every day and take it one day at a time. 🤗
