The Forgotten Side of Depression!

Posted: 14 October, 2013 in Comment, depression, Life

As I once again I am starting the slow return from a long down because of my depression using anti-depressants and during the process it is reminding me of the forgotten side of my depression.

That is the physical side of the depression itself as for us who suffer from depression know it is more than just a mental illness as by it very nature it also causes a lot of physical problems due to it’s very nature. In so much as it effects the brain directly which directly effects the body as a whole which should not surprise anyone.

Depression, especially mine, when running it full course effects my body physically in many ways the major effects being constant ache and pains, stomach problems and in the past even constant back problems. All of which strangely disappear when I come out of a depression.

This is the side of depression not understood by non-sufferers and large majority of Doctors who still believe that depression is still just a mental illness but those of us who suffer know it is far from this as it does have a very physical side to it.

It shows in way people treat depression as they fail to basically understand this effect of depression or just dismiss it as all in the mind of the suffer or someone moaning about nothing.

But as per usual these people rarely look beyond the depression itself either because of laziness or fear of mental illness itself!
