I have a friend who needs your prayers.

She is depressed, seriously depressed and doesnt know what to do.  She has had to fight battles all her life and this is one more, but to her right now it feels like it will never end.  She sees no light.  She doesnt even see the tunnel.

She doesnt think she can make it without meds.  When she has tried before she has become quickly suicidal and a real danger to herself.  They recently upped her meds and the addition left her having to fight sleep all day.  She switched back and now the depression is back. 

“Why do I have to choose between hells?” she asked me.  I have no answer.  She sees no place to go from where she is at that would be worthwhile.  She has tried many meds before and this is the first one that has even been tolerable. 

She is a caring person.  Many people rely on her to be there for them and know the answers to their questions.  Right now her brain lies to her and tells her she is all alone in the crowd of people in her life. 

I really think the toughest part of this illness for most people is the terror.  She told in tears, “I am afraid of myself…. I am afraid of what I can become…. I am afraid of what I can do…..”

I am afraid too.  Please keep her in your prayers.
