1. Can I just say that you’re amazing?!? This information is so touching yet so informative. You have once again left me in tears.

    Connecting and boundaries are so, so important to keep me from spiraling out of control.

    Thanks from the bottom of my heart for this reminder to take inventory.

  2. This post rocks, Sandy.

    I love love love that quote by Carla Barnhill at the beginning.

    Thanks so much for sharing your story with us. This series has brought to light MANY issues of my own that I need to tend to. I can’t thank you enough.

    Have a great Wednesday,
    Kate 🙂

  3. Another great, encouraging post, Sandy. Great to see you getting the word out there.
    When I went through severe depression back in the early 1990s, there seemed to be a lack of understanding about the illness. People spoke of it, doctors even said I had it, but a lack of knowledge of the nuts-and-bolts of depression kept me in the dark. The Christian counselor I saw helped a lot, and she spent a lot of time going through childhood traumas that were responsible for faulty throught processes that either contributed to my depression, or hindered recovery. Then came the book that helped me, which broke down nervous illnesses into its various nuts-and-bolts.
    Getting help for major depression is vital, it is not something we can recover from by ourselves, and I agree, let’s ignore the lie Satan tricks people into believing, “I don’t need no stinkin’ therapist.”
    What we need is to recover. And by learning how to deal with it, Jesus can set us free from its recurring cycle as well.
