Quote from a recent Watchtower....
The fact that millions of people KILL THEMSELVES every year shows us this cannot possibly be true.
People commit suicide BECAUSE they can't cope with the stress anymore.
Well they could argue "well they didn't ask for God's help..."
Yea, well you know countless numbers of JWs sadly commit suicide too right...?
So where was God when HIS people needed him eh?
Just annoys me that they are adamant and blindly believe that God will be the "cure-all" but mostly that it trivialises suicide, which is a serious issue.
I am so glad I'm not involved anymore!

As more and more people discuss mental health issues in public forums, it seems to be lifting some of the stigma surrounding the topic. New research reveals that the number of students seeking help for mental health problems has risen considerably between 2009 and 2015.
Anxiety, depression, and panic attacks are on the rise among U.S. college students, suggests a new study.
Sara Oswalt, from the University of Texas at San Antonio, is the lead author of the new study, which was published in the Journal of American College Health.
According to estimates that the scientists cite, around 26 percent of people aged 18 and above in the United States live with a mental health condition in any given year.

Throw All Your Anxiety on Jehovah
What can we do when we are overwhelmed with feelings of anxiety? Our loving Heavenly Father came to the aid of his servants of the past, & today he makes it possible for us to gain considerable relief from distress or anxiety.
The Bible urges us:
6 "Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that he may exalt you in due time,"
7 "while you throw all your anxiety
on him, because he cares for you."
(1 Peter 5:6,7) NWT
Consider ways that you can do-so by means of heart felt prayer, by reading God's Word and mediating on it, by tapping into Jehovah's Holy Spirit & by sharing your feelings with a trusted confidant.

WOULD YOU PAY SOMEONE $80 AN HOUR TO CUDDLE YOU?
My Dad, whose religion was United States Navy, often lamented that in the "early days" of the United States Navy, the men were made of steel, and the ships were made of wood ... but today ... the ships are made of steel, and the men are made of wood.
With that in mind, there are people SO UPSET that Trump won the Presidency that they are paying "professional Cuddlers" to hold them while they sob and moan.
I know that on some college campi that they have "safe spaces" where it is not allowed to MENTION that Trump won ... and folks are furnished coloring books, crayons, and teddy bears to hug .. at taxpayer (subsidized) expense.
Here is an article about the Cuddlers that is absolutely unbelievable .... but true.
I think the "herd" needs to be thinned out.

Anxiety and Depression Don't Judge...Help Them....
You will never truly understand something until it actually happens to YOU!

He is a shield to those taking refuge in him."
