Depression: The Precursor of Disease.

 

The intensity of depression seems to correlate with the severity, morbidity, and mortality of the disorders to which it predisposes. Julian Lieb, M.D. Newp. The People’s Press. 08/16/10. (Also see: Depression)

I so agree with this one.

 

I had not realised (even though we are always being told) how much stress and depression can affect the body until the onset of my Diffuse Scleroderma which happened at a time when I was at my most traumatised.

 

I now make a point of reminding my nearest and dearest to look after themselves as much as possible.

 

Hindsight.

Janey thank you so much for this. I had depression that left me unable to work prior to scleroderma and at the same time I was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis, another autoimmune disease.

HI Janey ,

 

Depression is one of the biggest *issues* that we have been dealing with, in Gareth, since his diagnosis. We were just told to increase his Vit D level, again, and buy Full Spectrum lights for throughout the house.

 

Take care, Everyone.

Margaret
