~The Ocean Series~ Clouds and Crashing Waves

7 Comments

The clouds roll in slowly and are overhead before you even know the darkness has descended.  You can feel the weight of the wave as it crashes upon you at the shore.  It is about to take you under.

Depression and Anxiety are very real.  This weekend I experienced one of the most frightening times of my life.  I had a full-blown panic attack.  I actually thought I was having a heart attack, due to my parents’ heart histories. Panic attacks can mimic the symptoms of heart attacks, so for the first time in 30 years, I visited the ER.

Due to a change from a name brand to its generic substitution, the chemical imbalance was not being controlled. I have been a mess.  Maybe my honesty will help someone.

 Even though I was not thinking clearly, I could feel the presence of my Savior.  He never left my side in my fear.  He gave me an inner peace that was present even as my ability to speak clearly was not.  I was going to be okay in one way or another.

God loves me, chemical imbalances and all.  And He loves you too! I will be back to my regular self soon. Well “regular” may be subjective..lol! 

Friend, don’t be afraid to ask for help. When I am in this state of incorrect medication, I get very anxious, forgetful and apologize for everything.  AND I feel like I have failed everyone, including God.  But that is not true!  It is a lie as is the thought that I am crazy! 

Get the help you need.  And don’t let those clouds overwhelm you…for the sun will break through and you will be able to dip your toes safely in the water without the fear of a crashing wave soon.

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 57 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer, part time office manager, part time writer... who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 41 years, married 38 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. AND...we are going to become grandparents to a baby girl in August!! First time grandparents and we are over the moon! We also have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. My heart's desire is to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~

    • You are so kind Carol. I will admit being so transparent has been a bit daunting, and I have received some criticism…but that is okay. I am so much better now that I have the correct medication and hope that my honesty will help others. Thank you for the encouragement.

  3. Oh Tammy, I know where you are coming from here. It takes a great deal of discipline and Faith to know that God has you in His Hand., regardless of our ups and downs, especially deep depression and helplessness. Just remember you are an extremely strong woman and very loved! Blessings back my friend, ❤
