Hi friends, my name is Donna Kay and I am a LIVING testimony of what it takes to overcome the worst case of severe depression, chronic insomnia, etc. a person can possibly endure everyday for 5 1/2 years, hardly EVER sleeping and BARELY functioning. A nationally well known "Insomnia Specialist" told me I was THE WORST CASE he had seen in his career (not smart to say that in the first place).

I am living my dreams today as a speaker, singer, and life coach all because of my complete healing and deliverence from what seemed IMPOSSIBLE to cure, spending over $50,000 in those years on every treatment known to man.

My purpose in life now is to show people in misery and torture the way out. I am a living testimony of what it takes and I want to share the healing that healed every part of my life. I encourage YOU to check me out at www.donnakay.us and see how my life has transformed AND to contact me for life coaching. I will guarantee you healing in what ever area of life we work on or your money back, no question. I am THAT certain and I give you my word!

Contact me at info@donnakay.us for more info and scheduling. I know that when I struggled everyday I was desperate for help. I only wish there was someone like me that had BEEN THERE and KNOWS the way out.

I so look forward to helping you.

Donna Kay, I just want to tell you and everyone that may read this that, Jesus Christ delivered, healed, and set me free from panic attacks, 7 yrs of the deepest, suicidal depression, overnight, and I came out of this nightmare the next morning with the most incredible sense of euphoria that I have ever experienced in my life..........and he didn't charge a dime.

Such things can only be described as supernatural and miraculous.

I can assure all the readers that I had previously tried every avenue in pursuit of healing and deliverance, and nothing worked. That's how I know that I know that I know, it was a miracle. Before this occured I was an avowed atheist having had given up on so called religion. Jesus is not "religion". He is GOD and all powerful.

Shalom and blessings

Your evil death god is hateful monster. Abusive parents use him to justify the most heinous and evil actions - from endless mental and emoitional abuse to beating and raping their childern. All in the name of your sweet jesus! No buhddist beats thier child and says its for their own good like christians do. You christains are sick. You shouldn't bellowed to have childern. You shouldn't be allowed to vote. We've all had 8 years of your hateful christain anti-president. Never again!

I'm sorry that you have been so hurt by people pretending to be Christians.

George Bush is an awful man. He is part of a really nasty club that worships the devil. He isn't a Christian, because a Christian would never worship the devil.

I am a Christain mother and I hate that child beating that you are describing, that "spare the dod" mentality that is an excuse to bully children. I hope I am very gentle and kind to my children.

I am sorry that you have been hurt by so called Christians

Jesus healed me from over 30 years of depression, which was caused by child abuse and rape. I used to cry every day, and now I don't.

I'm glad that someone put the appropriate and truthful response to what happened to you. I'd like to add a little so people may better understand.
Every person is born sinful and with a will to sin. No matter what religion we are or arent a part of- we cannot fully know/experience God until we surrender our lives to Him. God often uses periods of despair/emptiness/'depression' to bring us closer to Him. Once we surrender, we become more and more like our Savior. Christ is available to anyone. If He is drawing you to Himself through this method- draw near to Him.
Start reading the Bible, and prayerfully seek to know the truth. He is ready and willing...are you? The peace and future joy will prove worth it all. He is worthy of all we have.

donna kay, i have suffered from severe depression and anxiety all my life...I've had sleep problems, including insomnia since my teens (poss even late childhood)..to cure depression you must cure the insomnia, i've worked out that even when i've managed to relax my body and mind at night my brain is programmed to wake me up after 4-5 hours..i am desperate as i had couple of yrs of reasonable sleep due to taking a calcium-magnesium supplement, which now has worn off..and every other supplement i tried didn't do anything..sleep is no joke, research has shown that not getting sufficient sleep depresses the immune system and results in shorter life span, nurses and others who work shift patterns that stop them sleeping sufficiently have a 30-40 percent higher cancer rate research shows!

Please know that God does deliver from depression. Sometimes depression can even serve the purpose of bringing us closer to him by causing us to be aware of some of the negative emotions we have stuffed down inside from things that have happened to us in the past. When we become aware of these overpowering emotions we can then be in a place where we can hand them over to Christ. This can be a process, "transforming of the mind" as we learn to trust him.

My father abused me in the name of Christianity, but it is Christ himself who has been setting me free..hurt by a religion, transformed by a person.

I must confess I've been bitter against some professing Christians myself, especially the sort who think little of hurting others.

I left my church nearly 6 years ago, after the pastor prayed for the Lord to "open the eyes of those opposed to the war." I am opposed to pre-emptive wars (among other things) and killing those who've done nothing to me.

But, I ought not to blame God for false things taught by some who claim to follow Him. I would never beat my little son in His name, that's for sure.

I also suffer from the disrupted sleep thing, btw. I can fall asleep relatively easily. But, I wake up within a couple hours, and then it takes hours to fall back to sleep again. Years ago, I was an early riser, but now it's hard to drag myself out of bed in the morning because I'm still tired.

I'm convinced my depression wouldn't be as bad, if I could just sleep normally for once.

Why is this such a common problem? I drink a small amount of coffee in the morning, but that's it for the day.

The key word here, dear heart, is "professing" Christians. The Bible says, "you'll know them by their fruits"....

Christians go through stages in their growth. From babies and then hopefully, into maturity.

There are stages of growth along the way, just as we go through as people. So we need to bear this in mind when dealing with people. I will say this however, that someone who is a "pastor" is accountable to speak the truth of the Word of God, and mixing in politics and making demands that those he is "teaching" think and accept his opinions as their own, is out of the will of God.

(Google the word Nicolaitane) and you will see why, and also why going to "church" as we've been taught to accept as the thing to do, may be out of the will of God as well.

Don't feel guilty about not going to "church", just study your bible really well and pray lots and seek to obey Him and the light will shine brightly into your heart, and you will have peace about these things.

I confess, part of our trials and testings have to do with our dealings with people and sometimes anger and bitterness have to be dealt with when people trample on us.

I have had three people who have trampled on me lately, and I choose to forgive, but there is NO way it can be done in the flesh. It must be done in the Spirit and that is only accomplished in deep spiritual prayer.

You are correct that depression and insomnia go hand in hand. You probably need deliverance. It's not that unusual...most of us do. We are flesh but we are also spirit beings, and Satan fights us any way he can.

Even after I was healed and delivered of depression and suicide, I had to deal with a problem with insomnia I'd had all my life.

I slept okay when I was married, you know...someone to snuggle up to, but then when I was divorced, my problem recurred. I used to use Ambien for sleep and it was wonderful because it relieved me of the freak out feeling when I'd go to bed at night of "OMG, what if I can't go to sleep???!!!" And then it would become a self fulfilling prophecy and sure enough, I wouldn't be able to go to sleep. Ambien is NOT a hard core hypnotic or drug, but it sure beats insomnia and doesn't leave you feeling hungover in the morning. Also, it gives you some breathing space in the interim period while praying for healing.

Anyone who is in pain, or has insomnia, or depression, may need some temporary help with medication while praying and believing for their healing.

About nutritional requirements...since we are flesh and blood human beings, we tend to have deficiencies. I am finding that people with depression are apt to be deficient in magnesium. In fact, MOST people are deficient in magnesium and it shows up in their general health and in their mental health. People will not be able to correct a magnesium deficiency overnight, but they can make a beginning immediately.

Taking a magnesium chloride supplement at night before bedtime can do wonders for helping you get to sleep and stay asleep.

I started out with an over the counter supplement Slo-Mag, and it's pure magnesium chloride and that's the best kind for your body since your body doesn't have to convert it like it does magnesium oxide, etc.

At the health food stores, there is a wonderful supplement of magnesium chloride under the trade name Natural Calm.

To go a step further, google magnesium oil and magnesium gel with seaweed extract, which you either rub on or use in your bath water... and magnesium prills.

I am on a magnesium kick and I love it! I've just "graduated" now to the magnesium prills, and have ordered some from Health-and-wisdom.com after being really happy with the magnesium oil and the magnesium gel.

So, study the bible, and pray, but use magnesium chloride, melatonin 3 mg and L-Tryptophan for sleep.

And if you do wake up during the night, get up and make some hot milk and buttered toast, or eat a turkey sand,(it forms tryptophan in the body) pray or study the bible for awhile. You'll get sleepy because Satan hates that, lol.

God bless

To "Stranger": thanks, friend.:)

Re: the insomnia, when I was younger, I had to work odd hours. For 6 years, I got up at 1:00-1:30 to go to work for 2 (I had an early morning driving route). Because I had children, I couldn't get to sleep till they did (around 9). So, I could only sleep maybe 4 hours at a stretch, work for about 6, take a nap for an hour or two, then go back to another job.

Before that, I'd work till midnight, then get back up early for another part time job. My body got programmed to fragmented sleep. Even after I quit, I would wake back up very early, anyway.

I sleep lightly, and someone/ something manages to wake me up quite often. My little boy sleeps in my room (dad works 3rd shift) because his father never finished fixing the house, and his little room is full of other stuff with no room for a bed. Last night, he somehow fell out of bed and woke up screaming.

I've tried sleeping on the downstairs couch, but one of my older sons inexplicably likes to walk in and say things like, "What are you doing here?" Then last night, our pet rats decided they wanted to chomp on some nutshells very loud, and made a racket.

I have sleep apnea, but hate wearing a mask and a hose on my face. So, I guess I bring some things on myself.

I know I have a little magnesium deficiency because I crave chocolate (that is a symptom). When I take enough magnesium, the craving goes away completely.

The problem with taking supplements is, I really hate swallowing big pills. I have calcium magnesium pills, but they are HUGE. I'm always afraid I will choke on them. So, I often neglect taking them altogether.

I will try to find the products you recommend at a health food store, though. I have never heard of magnesium gel. That sounds better than large pills.

Re: the other stuff: it can get lonely in a church where people believe things that you just don't think are biblical. I have sort of fallen out with people I thought were friends, because I've expressed my views and they didn't agree.(sorry, but I just told believe God told Bush to start invade Iraq).

I like to check things out instead of just believing what someone tells me, but that can be seen as rebelling against "authority", cultish, or any other number of negative things.

Thanks again for listening.
