I'd lay in my bed after morning had come,
And wait for evening when life might be fun.
I'd say: soul, let's go. Let's get out with the stars,
And try our best to repair some of these scars.
The morning came and I'm back in bed,
Wondering if I wouldn't be better off dead.
Another night had passed of searching within,
Results again proved my life much too thin.
This time I'll change, I'm early to bed,
To rise with the sun in the morning instead!
To discover its secrets, that'll be my quest,
To hell with the problems, I'll do my best.
Tomorrow will be different, I'll be bold at the dawn,
It's my time to sing a brand new song!
I rose at dawn just as I planned,
This was going to be a new kind of man.
Started out for a walk in the morning light,
Talked to some others and experienced no fright.
A new me was rising, I could feel it inside,
People were friendly as soon as I tried.
Laughing playing children too had their part,
Of moving me from that mourning bed in the dark,
No longer life seemed down,
No longer need to carry a frown.
Greeted by birds and Sun shining bright,
This is so different from sadness at night,
With this morning of sky and no haze,
I decided to begin on the road of Sun gaze.
One feeling depressed-(and Job had as much reason as anyone)-has allowed thoughts to take him or her from the light (joy, peace, happiness) and into darkness. Enthusiasm seems sapped. Things seem hopeless. The drag of the mind that keeps us down, and tends to turn us inward, even against ourselves, is lack of hope. Lack of hope destroys enthusiasm. Nutrition plays a part.
    High levels of manganese have been detected in the brains of chronically depressed people. Crying reduces manganese.
    Antidepressant drugs aren't strong enough to stave off influences over time by the powerful demons. Only one thing is immensely effective -Ephesians1:19.

But, it we're Christian and depressed, we really have allowed our power to be sapped and have got off track of the goal -Philippians 3:14 and have perhaps not understood the import of Romans 8:30 and 9:23.

Organic grains are especially high in B vitamins, so necessary for a healthy, happy disposition.
    Converting to a macrobiotic way of eating would help and so would sun gazing

Depression weakens the immune system. Depressed persons rate of infection and cancer is higher. Taking anti depressant drugs is dangerous.
    Lack of making decisions (an important reason we are here is to make decisions; and what happens to those not taught to) causes depression. Ask yourself what decisions need to be made in your life. 

To get out of depression, a decision to do so is the first step -Romans 13:12 "The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Let us therefore cast off the works of darkness and let us put on the armour of light." 1John 1:5 "This then is the message which we have heard of him and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all."-1Thessalonians 5:5 "Ye are all the children of light and the children of the day. We are not of the night, nor of darkness." A decision to have strong determination to find out all you can about improving, to practice all that 'makes sense' to you from what you find out, and to keep at it until you're better, is the best thing you can do.

Cheer up!-The world changes so fast that you couldn't be wrong all the time if you tried. Life is really simple. We ourselves create most of the circumstances that complicate it! Don't feel sorry for yourself; feel sorry for the folks that have to live with you! 
    It's not what a person descends from, but what he descends to! 
    To rehash old troubles is somewhat like trying to make birth control retroactive!-...continue?

"No, I just can't be around happy people.
I'm just forlorn and sullen, stuck in
the gloom of ignominy."
