    Absolutely. So sorry to hear that and I'll definitely be praying.

    I've been continuing to pray for you. That sounds like a good next step and I'm so glad to hear that you have family in your corner. I'll continue praying.

    I'll pray for you, but you should be thinking "treatment" not "cure".
    Chances are you are going to have a lifestyle shift in order to minimize depression, not a "pill and it's gone".

    Praying for you, Rickster and for the health care professionals involved. Specifically that they will discern your situation accurately and formulate the best possible strategy/treatment for you.

    I wanted to revive this topic for a bit.

    Rickster hasn't asked for prayer for this situation in awhile, but he's continued to be open about it, even on a recent CGC livestream, so I don't think I'm sharing anything I shouldn't.

    He is getting some fairly involved help for his depression (won't go into details) that will take him off-grid from the internet for awhile (1-3 months, I think).

    Rickster has been a regular part of this community for years, and so I want to especially ask those of you who know him from these forums or elsewhere to pray for him, and the professionals helping him, on an ongoing basis until we hear from him again.

    I've put a sticky note on my computer monitor to remind me and I'd invite you to do something similar so we can be a faithful part of what God wants to accomplish in his situation.

    Thanks everybody!

    Surprise! I'm back sooner then expected. I'm still getting help but I've moved up to the 2nd phase which allows me access to my phone so I'll be able to stay in touch with that.
    I'm not ready to go into full detail about where and why I'm here but will when I feel better.
    I'm very anxious to get home and move on with my life but I know that can't with this depression so please pray that I can have the patience to stay here until I'm ready to move on.

    Take all the time you need. In the absence of regular praying emojis, I'll post a bunch of these because some people pray this way: cheers cheers cheers cheers cheers

    They give us the option of going to church on sundays and couple weeks ago I got to see two other patients and one staff get baptized which was really neat. And being here really been eye opening at how my life could have been different

    Could use some decrement. I can be put of here next week which sounds nice to get home and try to move on but also feel like things just started to get situated where I'm now getting help and staying another month might be beneficial for me. There is also money issues because my insurance isn't covering this so I'm paying with this with my inheritance and not sure I want to pay for another month. So got a lot to think about and not a lot of time to think about it

    Today sealed the deal we got in today and were blindsided to learn all 4 of the therapist and a few staffs were fired yesterday. I had been on the fence on staying another month or not but this was the deciding factor
