Hello again friends. I know its been a while since I posted. I want to talk tonight about another sign of clinical depression: insomnia. Obviously as I write this it is on my mind since I have it now and cannot sleep regardless of how tired I feel. Insomnia can cause more anxiety and more time for your mind to "run", instead of resting. I don't have an answer for this except to say there is a verse in the Bible (I can't find it right now) that assures us of a good night's sleep/rest. So on a positive note, I will stand on God's promise to give me a good night's sleep. I will go back to bed and know that sleep will come.
When sleep doesn't come, I have found the best use of that time is to be in prayer or to read the Word. There is a sense of peace that comes over you when you spend time in the word and prayer, communing with God.
Hope everyone gets a good night sleep. Good night, M.
