The Soul in Depression

depression.pngI suffered for 10 years with a major depressive illness before it was properly diagnosed and treated. During that 10 years I read a lot of material and consulted with many health professionals. Some of the advice I received was good and some was downright dangerous. Because of my experience with depression, I was immediately interested in a podcast done by Krista Tippett on Speaking of Faith® where she interviews a number of people and discussed depression and its effects on faith. I highly recommend it. You can find it by clicking here where you can download, listen online, or listen to it on your iPod.

  2. Hi there Steve

    I wanted to say that it is great that you are very open in sharing this us. The mix if depresssion, faith and Christianity can be a potent one and unfortunately I have seen that it is not always done right. Let's just hope that we deal with this with sensitivity and care to all.
