I’ve come down with depression and anxiety lately, came all through Covid and wham. I developed three health problems and I just went down. Would love to hear from anyone

Welcome to the forum Jsr. I am sorry to hear about your very recent health reverses.

Do you think your anxiety might be 'post-lockdown' anxiety related to all the known and unknown readjustments and changes you may be facing?

Do you think your depression might also be related to 'post-lockdown'? It is possible to be overwhelmed by a mixture of feelings or a sense of emptiness, loss or foreboding (or more than one of these) when our system is asked to confront dramatic changes while still coping with/processing ongoing daily challenges.

Or are you anxiety and depression coming from somewhere else? (Not asking for details or disclosures here)

Also, just as health issues can lead to anxiety and/or depressed states, anxiety and/or depressed states can stress our systems and /or undermine our immune system making us more susceptible to illness and slower recovery.

Thanks all. I had cancer 2018 and now have auto immune disease which seems to be throwing everything my way. The depression began when I was given a diagnosis of arthritis, 3 clots in lung and my leg developed meniscus tears and I could t walk and in so much pain. I thought my life was over, trouble is at the moment they cannot do op on leg because I’m on blood thinners so a 6 month wait, more pills for arthritis and today gd said I might be diabetic so it all down to health concerns

Hi JSR, welcome :)

I'm sorry to hear you're going through a rough time - I am sure we can all relate.

We'd love to hear if you're open to writing a little more about what sort of things you've been feeling. This is a very safe space to share how you're doing.

I hope you find this a very useful place to be.

All the best,

Thank you falling leaves i have just changed meds and for the first time last night slept through, still groggy this morning but comparing last meds when I couldn’t pick anything up because of tremors, insomnia, lost 2 stone in weight, fatigue, these new one hopefully will be better. I miss the old me that had lots of go, I wouldn’t think twice about trying anything.my friends knew how strong I was. I can’t see myself in my current form. I miss me.

Saw gp yesterday said not to even think about diabetes so having another blood test next week. She said it could be because I’d lost so much weight and wasn’t eating at the moment.
