Hi Craig ,

 

I first learned about autoimmune induced depression 4 months after Gareth was diagnosed. These days, it's still hard to pinpoint if he is *shutting down* due to depression, pain, fatigue, or all of them together. :( My heart goes out to all of you struggling with this combination.

 

Take care, Everyone.

Margaret

I know I have been depressed and didn't even realise it. I think I still am a little bit but I am moving out of it for sure.

 

Take care.
