resources about what depression does to the body
as salam alikum I have been a bit behind in doing post for my blog for this I am truly sorry , Life has a way of running away with your time if your not careful .
I took a long plane ride from Morocco to home it was very hard as my baby was sick and puked on me 4 different times in one day .
I have seen my primary care doctor and she is sending me to specialist cardiologist to have my yearly check up , neurologist to try and figure out why I am constantly dizzy as well to address the head aches I have daily that do not respond to pain medication .

I grew up thinking depression was as simple as one little transmitter getting lost somewhere on his way from one neuron to the other, much like I do when I venture further than five miles from home.

My husband and I disagreed about something. I did what I have always done when I had a difference of opinion with someone… I called my Mum. Before I could even finish my sentence, she asked me if I had prayed about it yet. Before I could respond, she told me that she would not allow me to…call her and complain about my husband to her, nor would she allow me to discuss our arguments/disagreements with her. I sat there stunned. Then she said something that has stuck with me for a very long time. “My daughter, the thing is,because you love him the way you love him, when the argument is over it’s over.
