Thread: Do u have any other illnesses alongside depression

  1. #1

    Do u have any other illnesses alongside depression

    I have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), IC (interstitial cystitis), Reflux, Vitamin B12 deficiency

    I just wonder how much do these other illnesses affect you or add to your depression?

    I don't have a diagnosed mental health condition, but I have a range of other physical illnesses including Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, DDD, spinal issues, and a rare form of migraine..

    I too have a joy of IBS which is closely linked with my mental health and stress levels. I'm also diabetic which is harder to manage when I'm struggling mentally. Other health issues include asthma and sleep apnoea.

    As well as depression I've had 2 operations on my back, with more on the cards, I've just been diagnosed with arthritis in both my knees, I've asthma and a severe allergy to latex (among other things). I suffer from allergic rhinitis in different seasons too, along with hayfever in the other seasons. Lol.

    A popsicle stick makes a great bookmark. But eat the popsicle first. Don't make the same mistake I did.
