      Severe depression may not affect functionality (as viewed by society) but can affect the perception and decisions on of everything.
      Hence it’s usually very shocking when people (especially those seemingly happy and content) choose to end their lives.
      You just never know what’s going on in a person’s mind.

      ‘She’s recently engaged and still so depressed?’ what has getting engaged got to do with not being depressed?

      Jane. You don’t sound smart. An engagement does not eliminate depression. A man promising to marry you does not remove your problems.

    From experience, I have come to understand that depression, fear, procastination, anger are not psychological feelings, but Spirits. Hence called the Spirit of Depression, the Spirit of Fear etc…
    (1 Sam 16:14 NLT): Now the Spirit of the Lord had left Saul, and the Lord sent a tormenting spirit that filled him with depression and fear.

    With that knowledge, you cannot use the physical to fight the spiritual. You have to conquer those thoughts with the scriptures with authority in thr name of Jesus.

    This goes without saying, please seek mental help also! Because the spirits of depression will manifest physically, leaving deposits of symptoms & signs. Seek therapy to deal with the physical manifestations.

      Hmm you are saying the word of God is only spiritually sufficient but physically insufficient? You need more understanding on the power of God’s word. The bible says the word of God is strong and power,sharper than any two edged sword and passes through even a bone marrow, do you think its referring to a spiritual bone marrow alone.
