#TearfulTuesday

One of the joys of most mental illness' are their predictability. They either hang out constantly or you know when it's coming. 12 years with depression and I typically know when it is about to show up.

Praying for Prosperity 

I heard a pastor on the radio recently say, "Stop asking "God, Why me?" And start asking "God, what are you preparing me for?"
