Facing a Funk

How Do I Deal with the Depression I’m in?

Facing a Funk


Depression affects 15 million people per year.  It is the second most common health problem and is expected to become number one in the next seven years.  Do you struggle with depression?  Here are some signs that you may be struggling with depression:

  • I feel consistently sad, discouraged, down in the dumps, or numb nearly every day
  • I have little or no interest in activities that I used to find enjoyable
  • I am having difficulty sleeping or I am sleeping too much
  • I have lost my appetite or I am eating too much every day
  • I feel tired most of the time
  • I find it hard to concentrate or stay focused
  • I feel overwhelmed by the burdens of life
  • I shift between feeling powerless, worthless, and hopeless to feeling angry and victimized
  • I don’t hold much hope that my life will ever improve in the future

Do you ever feel like that?  Elijah felt like that.  We are going to look at his life today and share some things that may help us to deal with the struggle of depression.  So how do I deal with the depression I am in?
