The Association Between Anxiety and Depression

More than 40 million American adults suffer from anxiety disorders, asserts the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. More than 50 percent of those with anxiety also suffer from co-occurring depression. Yet, only 33.8 percent of those with a severe anxiety disorder received treatment in the past year, explains the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). This low treatment rate can be improved by helping those with anxiety understand more about the prevalence of co-occurring depression and how anxiety treatment relates to depression treatment.

Symptoms of depression
Depression exists in many forms, according to the NIMH, but all types of depression have similar symptoms, which include the following:

  • Chronic sadness, emptiness, or anxiety
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness
  • Lack of interest in once-enjoyed activities, which includes disinterest in sex
  • Lethargy and fatigue
  • Trouble remembering things or concentrating
  • Insomnia, sleeping too much, or being unable to “wake up”
  • Overeating or undereating
  • Unexplained ailments, such as aches, pains, headaches, digestive problems, or cramps
  • Suicidal thoughts or actions

It’s important to remember than anxiety may be a direct symptom of depression. Similarly, depression may be a symptom of anxiety. FULL POST

The Judgement Seat of Jesus and the Care of Your Body

Will God someday judge - and reward you accordingly - as to how you cared for your body during your life on earth?

I believe He might.

This is a topic I've never explored or written about, but it came to me when I was spending time with God this morning.

The Bible tells us in a several places that we will all stand before the 'judgement seat' of Jesus. (2 Corinthians 5:10; Revelations 22:12; Romans 14:10; and Ephesians 6:8)

For we must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body. 2 Corinthians 5:10

We will be held accountable for the good and the bad things that we have done, or not done, in our lifetime. This judgement is not to determine where we will spend eternity - in heaven or in hell - but this will be to determine the rewards that believers will receive for all eternity in heaven. FULL POST

After Botched Abortion Hospital Leaves Newborn Baby to Scream in Pain and Die

I am firmly against abortion, therefore when I read this headline I was angry, among other things – like sickened, disgusted, and outraged:

Baby Born Alive After Botched 24-Week Abortion Screamed for an Hour as Doctors Left Child to Die

In the first place all life is sacred and that includes the unborn child. There should be no differentiation between a human baby that is outside the mother’s womb and the human baby that is inside the mother’s womb.

In this particular case according to the article: medical tests suggested that the baby had Down syndrome. Suggested? In other words they may not even have been positive of this but the woman still made the decision to end her baby’s life. Because of Down syndrome? Who would not prefer a normal healthy baby, but to kill a baby over this is inexcusable. FULL POST
