A Story Of Hope [AUDIO]
Eileen White was angry for years asking God ‘why me’ after being diagnosed with five mental disorders.
“I was very angry because I had plans for my life. Mental illness was not included in my plans. It basically stopped my life for about thirty years. I was so depressed at times I couldn’t get out of bed. I wouldn’t be able to get up and go to work for weeks at a time.
Eileen did not want to die. But, she did not want to live. Suicide was always on her mind. “I had a couple of over doses. I wasn’t trying to klll myself. I just wanted to go to sleep. I couldn’t deal with anything anymore. That’s how I ended up in the hospital the first time.”
As a last resort, Eileen agreed to undergo electric shock treatments which lifted the depression that was hovering over her.
