"A Daughter With Fears,Depression And Anxiety"
My daughter is the youngest of three daughters, who also suffers bad depression, brought on about fears of what if this happens or that happens, it's always the same fears. She constantly battling one fear or another so she stays on a run away roller coaster, but she wants to get off and don't know how. I had to explain to her that she had to get prescribed medication to help with the chemical imbalance she fighting against. If you're a mother like me, you want all of your children to be happy and content , but if they arent' then neither are you. she was married to a man with an alcoholic problem, and that didn't help matters any. She always worry about her two sons, which is 10 years old and three years old, she also has a problem with her weight; because she eats to make her self feel better, this is also a concern for me. We talk every day, through out the day, especially if she's having anxiety attacks, I'm constantly trying to calm her fears. I told her she needed help with medication, are she going to stay miserable.
My daughter has her highs and lows, but unfortunately the lows out weigh the highs, so the downers are keeping her sad and solemn, I want to help more, but it never last for very long before she riding the same old roller coaster again. It literally breaks my heart to see her going through this mental madness, and I can truly relate to her mental pain because I have been there myself. her once she had stabilized and she can handle the depression, she can slowly with draw from her medication with the doctors help of course. God knows I'm all for that healing action. I think maybe my daughter has bouts of depression because of my problem with depression and her father once had to be hospitalized for it. Let me tell you about my baby girl,she sweet. kind considerate and has a heart of gold, she the best mother anyone child can have.
Even though she has been unfortunate in love she hasn't totally thrown in the the towel yet, she still has hopes of finding the man of her dreams. I truly love all of my children, one no more than the other, but each of them have their own set of circumstances; for me to deal with individually. My baby girl has poor self esteem, and deep depression, which I try to bring her out of . I think she's pretty and has a great personality, she just beat up on herself for pass mistakes. Depression is a debilitating sickness that takes a lot out of the person. she also suffer the anxiety and panic attacks. I think when it comes down to her ways. she has a lot of them just like me, and maybe that's not all good because of my history with depression. She loves to cook , invent and create, when she in the kitchen, just like me. She a mother that takes time and does many things with her children, because she loves them so much, and because the father is really not around enough to help out. I want my daughter to get help so she can live a happy and productive life with her boys.
I know God is going to bless her to get her mental health back together real soon , because I don't want her to suffer a nervous break down from like of attention. She a reminder of myself and we talk two, to three times a day, we pray together, have bible study over the phone and sometimes we have to cry together; I just want the best that God has for her, because she deserves it.
