I’ve grown up in church my whole life, but it was more of a habitual type thing. I have struggled with clinical depression since I was a young girl. My 6th grade year, I was a catcher for a local All-Star Softball Team and it was my whole life. I loved softball with a burning passion, but I never gave God the credit for that talent.
After one of my games that season, my right leg gave out and fell. The next morning, I woke up and could not walk. This went on for about 2 months. I pretty much went to every doctor in the state of Georgia, including some of the best in Tallahassee. No one could give me an answer.
I miraculously regained my ability to walk after a few therapeutic sessions, still not understanding why or what had just happened to me.
Shortly after, I was diagnosed with clinical depression, meaning it is truly a disease that I struggle with. It is almost like I am dealing with a separate personality. On top of that, I was diagnosed with an anxiety order.
During my 8th grade school year, I got into an abusive relationship that I allowed to carry on for a year and a half simply because I felt cared for. After that relationship was ended, I felt broken and torn. On June 14th, 2016 – Satan filled me in a way I didn’t even think possible… I was scared into thinking there was no hope for my life and overdosed on sleep medication. Before the medication kicked in, God filled me withfear and I called a friend. I later found out that I died in the ambulance and was “shocked” back to life.
I should have died that night, but God had a different plan for me. He always has a better plan.
To this day, He uses me and my testimony to draw people away from the idea of suicide and toward the light of Jesus Christ.
