Before I start my response I have 1 most important question: Do you pray?

Just because you don’t, or can’t lift weights is no reason to be fat and out of shape. I would say that of all the people in the world who are not overweight, a vast majority of them have never lifted weights in their lives. Weight has more to do with diet than anything else. So you can’t work out like you want too. Concentrate more on what you can control and learn to eat in a healthier manner.

You are not alone in this respect at all. There are loads of people who have multiple things “wrong” with them. Look at what Christ had to endure for you. Look at the punishment that Paul had to live through. Look at the persecution that the apostles went through and the horrible ways they were killed. Whatever your problems are, they are not so great that they have never been conquered by others before you.

Counsel can be very helpful, but you are correct in saying that it cannot heal you. I agree with Cory that you should NOT use antidepressants. Again they cannot heal you, but rather mask your symptoms while doing nothing to correct the problem. Only God can heal. Ask him for the faith to believe in His healing power and ask Him for a miracle of healing.

God seems totally far away and unreachable to me. I feel like I'm in my own little world of problems and God is millions of miles away in another dimension
This goes back to my initial question . . . Do you pray? If not, is it any kind of wonder at all that God has not helped you? Also, God WILL NOT appear to you as in a vision or some such nonsense. God will, if you are obedient to Him, and ask Him in faith, show His presence to you through answered prayer. That is why the most important question is . . . DO YOU PRAY?
