You are wrong. I was in a bad accident. The helicopter crew that flew me to the hospital were certain I would die. The doctors were certain I would die. My kidneys and liver went offline. I turned yellow, and I was so weak I couldn't focus my eyes when I came to the next day. The Hospital called my Mom and Dad and said you need to come here now, right away. Your child has been in an accident and will die tonight.
The Living God, who was the same God of Abraham, Issac, Moses, King David, came in spirit form and took me out of my body for an hour for a amazing trip, high above the Earth. I felt so much joy. The most in my life. Then he sent me back to the hospital bed bellow down so fast from what I believe was 50,000'. I hit the bed like a bullet, but it didn't even move. I never lost consciousness in between.
The nurses were really excited to my story. That night my liver and kidneys started back up right away. The doctors were confused. I was a lost cause. I was supposed to die. They sent me to Stanford specialist, who said I had been hemoraging internally and somehow it seal up .
Then 2 weeks later when I was home, God came and visited me briefly. He came through the front door with it shut and locked. He allowed me to see me through his view, and I could also see my view at the same time. He spoke to me just one sentence, but it is kind of personal what he said, and Mom told me not to discuss with others our private conversation. Both my parents knew what I told them was the truth. My face looked different. It was like lit up some way, and I was filled up with happiness, joy, and peace.

What you don't get is this:
People like the poster you are talking to and others of us with faith who have had our own personal experiences understand very well what you are saying.
Sure we can't prove the experiences we have beyond our own testimony, and people like yourself can and will call us liars and scoff. We know that.
We also know it's called faith for most for a reason. There is no hard proof and never will be until it's way too late.
But when you talk down to someone with an experience as though we're too thick to comprehend that we can't prove our experience to you, it's insulting. We aren't dumb and we know that.

The numbers are also further proof that teens are an increasingly vulnerable group when it comes to mental health. Research shows that teen depression rates are on the rise, yet stigma or fear of asking for help often prevents people from getting medical support. Untreated mental health conditions are among the leading causes of suicide. Experts say there are multiple reasons more young people are struggling with their mental health. Heavy social media use, bullying, economic burdens, family issues and exposure to violence can all be risk factors for conditions like depression, according to Dan Reidenberg, executive director of the Suicide Awareness Voices of Education. “People often think that teens can’t get depressed or anxious, but they can. People also often think that it is ‘just normal teen angst,’” Reidenberg told HuffPost. “While the teen brain is still developing, teens do struggle with genuine mental illnesses and they need to be properly evaluated and treated.”
