Depression and Borderline

depression

Depression is a serious illness, and the statistics state that 1 in every 4 people will develop a mental illness at some time in his or her life. As a borderline, or emotionally unstable person, I hate it when depression rears its ugly head, coupled with loneliness and emptiness. I have little energy to want to do anything. I neglect my family. I neglect my own hygiene. I don’t want to eat, not even comfort eat. I find it difficult to pray.

I feel such a burden, like nobody wants to be around me when I’m like this. I wish somebody was around to hug me and pray for me. However, moments of depression do pass as a borderline, and I’m grateful for that.

Lord, thank you for the strength to continue, when I have prayed so many times for you to take my life.

Fear thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God:
I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee;
yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness – Isaiah 41:10
