Recently, on Twitter, you might have seen me asking for prayers with not much explanation.

Well, remember the post I wrote in January?

I got some responses. Several were fantastic and supportive. Some were not.

I’ve decided to take one of the negative responses, and take excerpts from it to share with you all. Now this person, knows my parents. In fact they consider them friends.

You know those commercials you see all the time on TV, that are just stating over and over that “depression hurts”. Well, yeah. It does hurt. But life goes on, and you can’t just sit there on the couch staring off into space. It just doesn’t work like that. Or maybe it does, if you’re not a mom.
