Erin Wilkes
I don't want to sound selfish, but I have a hard year ahead of me, and I need prayers



Hello everyone. My name is Erin. I am 16 and starting my junior year in highschool. Last year was very tough for me, I suffered from a very deep depression, and I am happy to say that I am recovered. While depressed, I made a lot of bad decisions, one being to leave the school I was in and switch to a public school in my town. I had a very hard year and now I am returning to my old school, St. Joseph's. Its going to be a difficult change and I am scared. Very scared. I dont want to fall into my depression again. I need your prayers, and support. God Bless you all for reading this.. PRAISE THE LORD!

Dear Erin,
You will be okay because you have so many who love you. I was severely depressed throughout high school and I had to hit rock bottom before I finally saw the light. It turns out I had a chemical imbalance in the brain so medication was ncessary in my case. But I have come a long way and I do not regret anything because I am so strong from my experiences and happy to be alive! You can get through depression by believing in yourself and your faith! God bless you Erin and if you ever need someone to talk to, I am here!

Honey, I'm a junior now too, and I know how you feel. I also had a tough year last year, as did many of my friends. What has helped me is being with close friends, and at the same time learning to feel more independent from those around me. I had to realize that the only person who could make me happy was myself, and I had to learn to stop feeling so easily hurt by those around me. I realize that this is a very difficult thing to do, and it's not always an option for everyone, but it really helped me to break away from the control of others. I realized that I was the only one who should affect me. At the same time, however, I think it's still important to turn to others when you need help, as long as those people don't also hurt you. It's also important to look to God. Good luck, ma chere!

Dear Erin, It wasn't so long ago I was your age. I also suffer from depression ans anxiety, which thankfully with meds and behavior modification I have under control. But this is a condition that you will never be able to let your guard down on. Especially in the teenage years. I've learned to live in the moment,( learned the hard way!) I used to" what if?" myself constantly, and would've could've should've was my self dialog.Making mistakes is okay as long as you learn fron them...and isn't that what life is all about? We never stop learning. Believe in yourself, and have a dream and goals...something to work towards and look forward to. I don't want to take up much mopre space, but i'd be glad to chat with you more.Feel fre to e-mail me anytime at Cspirit66@excite.com

Dear Erin:

Please do not ever think you are selfish when seeking prayer. You are doing exactly what The Lord wants you to do. I too suffered depression and anxiety as a young girl[I am 45 now]. My daughter suffers from them as well. Medication, prayer, and love also has helped us both. Hang in there and always remember God and your sisters and brothers in Christ love you.

Heavenly Father,
I pray before you thankful for your mercies and incessant love. Lord, please build a hedge around this young woman and all of us who suffer from this menacing distraction from your love. Help us to remember that we are to love you and one another and to perpetuate your goodness, love, and guidance. Dear Father, give her courage, strength, and wisdom. Lead her to positive, encouraging, loving, and heaven inspired people, music, employment, recreation, doctors, teachers, neighbors, and friends all the days of her life. Holy Spirit, always guide her, please, in the pursuit of happiness through Jesus. In Your Precious Name, Jesus, I humbly submit this prayer. AMEN.

God be with you sweetheart. E-mail me if you ever need prayer. c.ccw@verizon.net
