Overcoming depression

Live audio chat with Robin Hoagland, C.S.B.

Robin answers a wide range of questions in this very active chat, and describes her own healing of manic depression. Several site visitors share their experiences of overcoming depression. Referring to the spiritual insights in the Bible, especially the Psalms, Robin declares that each of us can expect the inspiration of God to flow into our lives, and that this inspiration will lift us above depression. She says that depression would keep us looking downward and inward, but like Job in the Bible we need to look upward and outward. Then we will be able to see God's good creation and know we can't be separated from it.

Questions include dealing with sadness during the holidays and sorrow over a loved one's passing, family pressures, how to communicate with a spouse or other relative who is suffering from depression and resents efforts to help, how not to be depressed over world events, why Christian Science is different from positive thinking.
