I've been through things where experts say its normal to fell as I do now, but now that Ive gone through this so long, I think I've always felt this way. I was just able to mask it more easily, I am still able to now, but it feels like its getting harder. I use to be religious but I don't think I am anymore but still I pray to something I will wake up better tomorrow and I pray for you all as well.
Hi, I understand where you are coming from, I've had major depression pretty much my entire life. Right now I am in a very bad place, being unemployed has triggered a major episode. I can tell you, I have had times in the past when it did get a lot better, with the right combination of medication and therapy - I can remember happy times. I think its normal to doubt your faith while you are feeling this bad, I know I do, but like you, continue to pray. Hang in there, it may always be a challenge for us, but it can get better
