Dave and I had a surprisingly good discussion with Amy tonight. She realizes that she needs to go to counseling and is willing to go. She confessed that she was sad before Dave and I split up, and the divorce just made things worse. I reminded her that clinical depression runs in my family, and that it is not a weakness to accept help or take medicine if needed.
I was fairly open with her a few weeks ago about how depressed I was last winter. That really paved the way for some good discussion this evening. I was again reminded that God uses our own suffering to help others...never did I think He would use my struggles with clinical depression to help her.
He is an amazing God! Thank you all for your emails, phone calls, texts and prayers. I have the best friends in the world!
