I am in recovery for my experience with depression.
I lost my job and dreams for my life when I was 59 years old. Even though I had been a believer in Jesus Christ for 34 years, the job loss combined with memories of the demeaning abuse of an alcoholic parent all surfaced. I spiraled into a very long 5-year and 10-month period of severe depression. I was unable to cope with anything in my life and basically became a nonfunctioning human being, not participating in my own life or with my family and friends.
