Depression: Justin's Story - Episode 2
There's nothing that can replace a loved one, but there are many ways to move on and live your life. Watch the second episode of Justin and how he's coped with losing his parents at such a young age.
Those days when I felt like, 'Man, why am I still here? Why aren't I with my parent, or why didn't this happen to anyone else?' You know those questions, the medical world can't answer. I knew at the age of 12 that my life was going to be a mess if I didn't hand it over to God. I really chose to study the bible, and that's what really helped me cope with my attitude problems, and my anger towards life. Not only studying the bible from a spiritual standpoint, but even from having therapists... having a therapy session, doctor, and being able to really sit down and talk and express my feelings, you know, I think is one of the most important things you can do is to communicate. As humans we need that, and I think as far as coping, I think it helped tremendously. Just being able to have friendships to guide me in the right direction. Now a days, it's been great. I feel like I have a better handle on things. I'm coming back to school. Things are great. I miss it, finding work. You know, you stay faithful, and you stay strong, and persevere, the storm will pass. You know, great things are to come.
