Depression and Osteoporosis

Posted on April 25, 2019

You’re not alone if you feel sadness, hopelessness, fear, or anger about osteoporosis. Many members of MyOsteoTeam have experienced the same emotions.

Changing your routines can be a source of sadness for members of MyOsteoTeam. “Osteoporosis forces us to make unwanted lifestyle changes and even give up some of the activities we enjoy,” one member commented.

Members also experience fear about potential health problems. “There's always that nagging worry about a fracture,” one member wrote. Another member shared, “I have been feeling depressed about my future.”

MyOsteoTeam members have benefited from professional mental health treatment. “It does help to see a counselor and perhaps even take meds. I do both and can tell you they greatly improve my quality of life,” one member commented.

Support from others with osteoporosis is another important source of comfort, especially when friends, family, or coworkers misunderstand the seriousness of your condition.

“It is so nice to see all the comments of support for each other,” a member wrote. “On this site I am reminded that I am never alone.”

Another member shared her appreciation for MyOsteoTeam: “We are all in it together, and we support each other!”

On MyOsteoTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with osteoporosis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Depression is one of the most discussed topics.
