from Church Members:
I struggle with depression. It got so bad that I had to go on
Prozac. I talked to Pastor. I talked to my doctor. And it was
either that or I would have had a breakdown. And I went on it.
But I didn't like it. I didn't want to become addicted to it.
So I weaned myself from it. I still struggle with [depression],
but I don't use medication. I use prayer. And it's hard because
I can easily think back and feel 'what do I have to live for?'
Then I look at my son. I look at my granddaughter. And I look
at myself. God left me here to do something, and I'm gonna do
it. I just-I don't know what it is. Maybe He hasn't revealed it
to me. Maybe I'm already doing it. I don't know. But He left me
here for a reason and I'm gonna serve Him. -Sister M.P., 45 years
