I have been depressed for about a year now, and it gets worse every day. I don’t want people to tell me what I should do about it, because I already know what I have to do and when the time is right I will get help. But this is about how I became pretty sick today and I want to know if my depression has been the cause of it.
This morning I was absolutely fine and although I was a little tired at being back at school from a holiday and I didn’t sleep very well last night, I almost felt good to have something to take my mind off my depression. It didn’t really work because at around the middle of the day I started to think a lot about my depression and then later on I started to feel sick. it got increasingly worse throughout the rest of the day. These are my symptoms:
- Huge headache
- Lots of neck pains (I have mild neck pains due to my depression anyway but these were so bad that I could hardly move it)
- Lightheadedness - I felt as though I was going to faint
- Arm, leg and foot pains (again, I could hardly move)
- Lots and lots of shivering (I admit, it was fairly cold today but I was inside most of the day and I was shivering even when it was obviously not cold)
- Loss of appetite
I know that this may be merely a sickness caused by anything, but since it began when I was thinking about my depression and some of the symptoms were the same as when I feel really depressed, I thought it might be good to discuss it to see if it relates. I’ve heard of people feeling ill when they get really depressed and I have been getting increasingly more tired and have been longing more and more to just sleep all day and not do anything (which I know is a big factor in depression).
Thank you x
