    Sorry to hear you're feeling this way.

    I have felt and continue to feel exactly the same way as you are feeling right now. Depression can make you feel this; its truly horrible and half the time we feel no one else understands. It may not be much help but feel free to private message me at any time; sometimes it helps to be able to talk to someone who is experiencing the same so does truly understand smile

    Hi, Kev...I know exactly how you feel because I have had a lifetime feeling that way.  The answer to your question is a resounded "YES", depression CAN and does make you sick.  Have you been checked out by a doctor with blood tests, hormone tests, etc. to see if your serotone levels are ok...If not, I urge you to do that and then get back to us, please...we are here to help...God bless.

      Thank you for getting back to me, Kev....Usually the things that you worry about most never really come true and never hurt you.  I have so many symptoms from my depression but I'm trying to take one day at a time and not worry about tomorrow...It's very hard to do, but I've been anxiety ridden my whole life, so I'm very used to pain....How old are you, sweetie, if you don't mind my asking...My goal is to stop all the young people from going through years of what i have endured...At 67 yrs of age, I'm still trying to hide my restlessness from others...We can wear a smile and be dying on the inside...Keep in touch, and I can get you years of experience to get through the days ahead...hugs...xxx
