Depression can happen any time we are faced with stressors in our life. It depends on the person what stresses them the most and if they can use resources they may have to deal with these stresses in a healthy and productive way.
I think any kink of a disease &pain can cause depression. Does anyone agree ??
Hi everyone just a update with my health I have seen a Specialist who has explained why I am so hypo all the time a thing that has been with me for nearly 70 years.
I have ADHD , PTSD & anxiety the Dr has prescribed new meds that I get from my regular Dr this week hopefully they will allow me to relax more , slow down also cover some of my pain issues.
Apparently ADHD runs in families so he thinks my Mother had this condition, I inherited it passed it onto one of my son's then he passed it onto my grandson .
Because in early days there was no name or treatment for this condition so I have suffered silently with the condition my friends excepting me the way I was.
So all's good with me just being positive & keeping busy.
Have a lovely day , keep safe, hugs.
@A MyOsteoTeam Member I am sorry you have had so much pain and starting at such a young age. Talk to your doctor and see if there is something mild that might help you feel less depressed. Do you have any interests or hobbies that you can do within the limitations of pain and safety? It's very hard to adapt to new ways of living and remain cheerful, especially if there is a lot of pain. I hope this next week will be better for you.
Hi Lesley Garvey, you do not say how old you are or if you are on any meds.
I have lost 1.5 inches in the last 3 years, despite being on different meds since age 50, which is now 26 years ago! I take lots of exercise, walking, swimming and yoga, at least an hour a day, as I know strong muscles will support my bones. And I eat carefully. As my mother and grandmother both lost height from osteoporosis, I am determined to fight it, after all, I have meds and info to help me, which they did not.
