Are rearing their ugly heads today.  Very mad at the world in general...and God, too. Sad

Could use your prayers.

Sorry to hear that, man.  I've dealt with anxiety and depression a good bit myself, so I sympathize.  Will certainly pray for you.

Can totally relate.   Will pray for all of us.  I know we will get through this eventually because God has brought me through some truly horrible experiences and suicidal emotional states.  It's like a supernatural kind of help.  
It might not come right away though, but it will come.

The world is working daily to convince us that this world is all there is. And when you see then what's happening in this world, it can be really disheartening. I pray for you and all christians to keep our eyes on the Lord and to gather treasures in heaven. This world will pass away, but there are things that won't.

Another crappy day today.  So tired and stressed, the daily grind is wearing me down.  Dark voices are tempting me to give up.  Sometimes our faith is all we have.

^I hear you. Don't give up. Hold onto God even if it's like all you feel you're hanging on is a thread. God can handle our moods and our down times. I find it also helps to get some rest where possible, do something less taxing and more enjoyable, even for a short period. I wanted a lot of silence last week, it helped because the mind felt fried from all my own stress last week. Will keep you in prayer, feel free to keep reaching out. You're not alone. We stand with you.

I'll continue to pray for you.  I second what Constantine said a few posts up.  I hope you can at least get some rest if nothing else.

Have you considered counseling?  It may or may not help, but I think it might be worth a try.

Better today.  The two-mile walk I went on after work helped much. 

Without going into too much detail, I have some other physical challenges that exacerbate my anxiety and depression.  Challenges for which I receive monthly treatment.  

Thanks again for the tremendous words of encouragement,

Could use some prayer tonight. God, as usual anymore, seems distant and indifferent.  Bosses won't send me any help, which causes my stress and anxiety levels to spike.  Sad

As someone who also suffers from these afflictions I feel for you. I'm trying to sell my house at the moment and my anxiety is so high.

I just push on one day at a time and look forward to the light which I know is coming soon.

I'm afraid that if I try to say anything encouraging it will only sound like a well-meant platitude. I'll just say that I'll pray for you.

An update: I think I'm going to have my dad take me to the doctor today and see if they can help.  Impossibly feeling even worse today.  I can barely look at myself in the mirror without becoming sad.

Just returned from my appointment.  The doctor is doubling up one of my medications and had bloodwork done.  Plan on taking the rest of the week off to rest, with vacation starting next Tuesday.

Feeling a bit better in this yo-yo life.  I'll take it.  Thanks, Lord! 

Asking for prayer for some test results, ones from recent bloodwork.  One number needs to be higher, and the other lower.  Thanks.

I understand.  I went through quite a bit having to do this whole isolation stuff TWICE.

My wife thought she had a sinus infection and went to her Dr. in October.  They tested her and she supposedly had the virus.  Her symptoms were gone the next day.  She was allowed to work from home for two weeks and then they fired her for coming to work with 2 or more symptoms.  While she had to stay home for 14 days, I had to stay home for 24 days as per the CDC guidelines at the time.  I got pretty depressed during that time, too.

Then, in January, I had the virus.  I had the lost of smell, sinus issues, fever, and severe fatigue.  I had symptoms for about 4 days but had to be at home for 10 as per newer CDC guidelines.

Trust me--it gets old quickly.

I personally believe we would be better off had we left everything open and allowed ourselves to build up immunity.  Yes, we had a lot of elderly dying, but you can trace most of that to being kept in nursing homes without proper care and ventilation.  This wasn't just in New York--even here in Tennessee we did the same thing.  We even housed some COVID patients in nursing homes despite not being residents.  Most of us who get this recovered without any medicine whatsoever.  Some had worse cases, but the flu and pneumonia are exactly the same way.  All are rough on the elderly.

That's my two cents.  If you have that and an additional $5, you might can get a cup of coffee at Starbucks or some other trippy-dippy hippie coffee house. LOL

Yesterday, I saw the hand of God move so strongly in my life, when, upon returning from all-day testing, I returned home and bawled my eyes out.

I could use prayer for my financial situation.  My Covid hospital bill just arrived, and my back pay issue with the Leave of Absence (LOA) people is in disarray.  Really stressing, and I don't want to be.  I just want to be a faithful follower of Christ, and sometimes it's just so hard. Sad
