Causes of Depression

Hi mates,
I am here to reveal the causes of depression. There is no single known cause of depression. Rather, it likely results from a combination of genetic, biochemical, environmental, and psychological factors.
Research indicates that depressive illnesses are disorders of the brain. Brain-imaging technologies, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), have shown that the brains of people who have depression look different than those of people without depression. The parts of the brain responsible for regulating mood, thinking, sleep, appetite and behavior appear to function abnormally. In addition, important neurotransmitters–chemicals that brain cells use to communicate–appear to be out of balance. But these images do not reveal why the depression has occurred.
Some types of depression tend to run in families, suggesting a genetic link. However, depression can occur in people without family histories of depression as well. Genetics research indicates that risk for depression results from the influence of multiple genes acting together with environmental or other factors. In addition, trauma, loss of a loved one, a difficult relationship, or any stressful situation may trigger a depressive episode. Subsequent depressive episodes may occur with or without an obvious trigger.

This is the kind of BS the so -called "mental health industry" spoon feeds people BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE THE ANSWERS AND CAN'T HELP ANYONE!!
How do I know??? Because I tried that for 7 long agonizing years. It's total BS.
Or, you could so something that really works.
Trying to "fix" our soul sicknesses, like depression, never works because it's a spiritual problem manifesting in the natural.
Eating right and getting enough rest are things that God expects us to do anyway to take care of our bodies. No biggie there.
Repentance for spiritual sins is a big step toward healing.
Many illnesses, including mental illness is linked to anger, rage, bitterness and unforgiveness, unconfessed sins, etc.
It takes repentance and the blood of Christ to wash our sins away, and start the healing process.
Read the testimonies. These are not fables, but real accounts of those who've received supernatural healing and deliverance from depression and suicide.

I'm sure you've been praying for those 7 long agonizing years too.
It doesn't sound like your prayers are being answered.
And it's not looking too good for that supernatural healing either.
Maybe that's the BS.

Oh wait, maybe it's 'God's will' that you're depressed & suicidal.
I mean, obviously you're not doing something right.

Inspiring testimony.

No, as a matter of fact, I was an devoted atheist for those 7 long years, and probably hated God just about as much as you do or more.

But wait...I'm not depressed anymore! Or an atheist. Remember, I said I was supernaturally, and miraculously healed?

So, no, it wasn't God's will that I was depressed and suicidal, or he wouldn't have healed me.

He heals a lot of people.....at least those who come to him with sincere repentant hearts.

You assume:
-that you know anything about me
-that I am an atheist
-that I hate God
-that Atheists hate God
-that Atheists are devoted to hating God
-that I am not sincere, or repentant, or that I am
-that I am not a Christian

Don't assume that you know anything about me.

Ok, I won't assume anything about you.

I won't even assume that you have any hostility toward me.

Or even assume you were assuming anything about me in your first post to me,(even though I'm almost 100% positive you were.)

For every Christian with a testimony, there's at least a legion of demons trying to block them.

I've been on Effexor from http://goo.gl/TRCx1y only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
