Twice as many women as men will experience depression sometime in their lifetime, and episodes for women are likely to start at earlier ages, last longer, and recur more frequently, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians (www.aafp.org). Many women are given medication to treat the disease, but medication alone does not always address the underlying emotions that trouble the mind and spirit. Counsellor Elyse Fitzpatrick and Dr. Laura Hendrickson provide biblical guidance on how to balance medical intervention with biblical encouragement.
"Where do my feelings come from?" "Is emotional pain a disease?" "Can I really change?" "What is wrong with me?" Countless women struggle daily with depression, anxiety, out-of-control moods, and other troubling emotions. "Will Medicine Stop the Pain?" offers clear answers to help women handle emotional problems in a stable, God-honoring way. The authors, both seasoned biblical counselors, include stories from real people and practical advice on issues like how to talk to your doctor. Read this book to learn: How your body and your emotions affect each other. Why drugs that help you feel better may end up making your emotional problems worse. How applying biblical principles can help you deal with the true sources of your pain. Why it is possible to respond to emotional pain in faith and hope. "God is with you--no matter how you feel. His promises are stronger than all your feelings." I urge you to read this book all the way through--with a prayerful heart and an open mind. It may be one of the most important, helpful books you have read. It will likely challenge your thinking on many fronts. It will certainly give you a vision for how your suffering (and the suffering of others) can become a path to great blessing and growth and can result in the display of God's glory in this fallen world.
