Claudia Andrea
Depression is killing my family

I'm writing from Iquique, Chile. The thing is, while I was searching for websites I have found this, it's better to say, God shows me this page.

Well, the trouble is, as maybe you have seen on the bottom, my sister Claudia (17 years old), is in this moment suffering a strong depression. Sometimes she very happy and hopefull, but it seems to be a switch changing, because in the following second she is sad and all that she wants is to be alone, donīt wanna talk, donīt wanna anything. Unfortunely, this illness started on 1999, when she tried to suicide, from this moment until now all the family is fighting with her illness. We know that the only specialist in this, is our Lord Jesus, but we canīt denied that her will would provide her the freedom that she needs. Meanwhile, we are praying for her, we can't pray with her, couse she sleeps all the day and goes out in the night until morning. We canīt stop she is very agressive and that agressivity affects my mom. Thatīs why we are asking you to pray with us for her. I know there is some other and bigger troubles, but I think there isnīt anything more sorrowful than a family in breaking.

many months have passed since you requested prayers, but I read it today and decided to pray for you and your family. The battle with depression is a very serious matter. I myself dealt with it in the past. What worked for me was prayer, physical exercise and natural medicine. I tried Saint Johns Wort and also Kava-Kava. These medicines work as anti-depressant and do not give secondary effect. It is better to take either one or the other, not both. For me, one pill was enough for the day. These pills cannot be combined with any prescribed drugs. I tried prescribed drugs, but made me feel as a zombie, sleeping and without concentrating, but thanks God I had the idea of substituing it for natural remedies. I hope that Claudia will be doing good and tell her God loves her and so do us. She has to make an effort to get up and be active, specially do exercises, that really worked for me. Whenever you do physical exercise, your body produces endorphines which is a hormone that give you energy and fights naturally all depression. Also Claudia needs to take vitamin of the B complex. They fight stress and depression. May the Lord be with you and your family. Victoria.

God of life, hear all these prayers for Claude. Help her family to love her but not anxiety to her stress. Help Claude to find the healing she needs from the past so that she can receive the present, and help her to own her anger and name it without taking on herself. Set her free, to know your joy Jesus, in your name we ask. Amen
