You didn't tell us any of the circumstances, but you will be in my prayers.

I see this is your first post, so welcome!

I posted this in another thread for a brother who seems to be depressed, but I think it would apply here here as well. Here it is:

Depression isn't always spiritual in nature. Living in this fallen world, we are subject to many illnesses, mental and physical. It could be a chemical imbalance. Sometimes depression is associated with life events, like the death of a loved one, or a breakup, etc. I think you should see a psychiatrist and let him/her know all that you're feeling, how long you've felt that way, problems in your life, etc. It is no sin to seek medical help when we feel emotionally ill, just like it's no sin to have hypertension or diabetes. Too many people (especially Christians) suffer in silence because they think they lack faith, or have committed some sin that God is angry about. Unfounded guilt is a huge part of depression.
You don't have to suffer like this, sister. With God's help you can be happy again. Sometimes God works through doctors if it's something physical affecting our mood. I know that untreated depression will only get worse. Whatever you do, don't let another day go by with an illness that can be helped.
God bless, friend.

Didymus is correct.  Depression is a chemical imbalance  in the brain, not a mental illiness.  I suffer from clinical  depression so I know how you feel. You cannot feel pleasure in anything or anyone.  there is hope and it is called a doctor.  With medication, you can get a grip again and with God you can fight it off when it comes upon you.  Hang on to your faith, it is your lifeline. You would go to the doctor if you had the flu and felt lousy..... this is like the flu.... go see a doctor, meanwhile, I will pray for you and believe me you can once again feel the peace and contentment that only Christ can give you.
