  • Even as a young girl I suffered from depression. My daddy and my brother also suffered from it. For the past 20 years or has made me a prisoner in my own home! I'm going to do my best to overcome it!
    I am surprised that WEIGHT GAIN wasn't mentioned. It is just as prevalent as weight loss from depression. If you can't feel anything and are utterly numb , overeating is a way of trying to FEEL something, anything.
  • I was wondering if the author did the research on chronic illnesses that affect the brain. I have Multiple Sclerosis and I have seen the placKs* that take up home in my brain. I have many issues that contribute to depression and anxiety. I have issues with pain and reduced function of my body. It contributes to my depression and anxiety. These symptoms help me to struggle with exercise and calorie consumption. I also live on a low income life style that affects my ability to find an active lifestyle that works for me. These are some of the issues I struggle with day to day. Each day is a different day. I know that any of these activities even on a reduced function can be beneficial and for me that is where the depression and anxiety step in. I struggle to convince myself to do things that contribute to an active life. I have a art class and an environmental study that I participate in. I try to do things that make me happy. Thank you for your time to read this.
