Depression is more than simply feeling unhappy or fed up for a few days. We all go through spells of feeling down, but when you're depressed you feel persistently sad for weeks or months, rather than just a few days.
Some people still think that depression is trivial and not a genuine health condition. They're wrong. Depression is a real illness with real symptoms, and it's not a sign of weakness or something you can "snap out of" by "pulling yourself together".
The good news is that with the right treatment and support, most people can make a full recovery.
At a recent Meeting Rev Dr Lyndsay Wilson a minister and General Practitioner dealt with this topical subject. This is an important message to listen too even if you don't have depression.
Dr. Lindsay Wilson is a minister of Castlederg Free Presbyterian Church, and a qualified medical practitioner (GP) for ten years with a diploma in Obstetrics and Gynaechology. He has had five years of experience in Craigavon and Stranraer.
This topical message was recorded at a special meeting held in Grace Free Presbyterian Church, Newtownards.
sacred cow of modern christianity DIABETES is different from MENTAL DEPPRESSION. A very cunning example used by the speaker in which he espouses drug dependent treatment on the realm of spiritual malady. The problem of the mind is spiritual and can only be solve by spiritual medicine. Worry affects our physical features and because of this, Jesus commanded his listener NOT to worry at all - and He gave the reason why. Worrying is disobedience to Jesus command and we cannot use chemical imbalances for our disobedience and disbelief. Psychology, in my opinion, is the modern sacred cow of Christianity today.
