Sometimes just making it through the day can be hard. Between work, kids, spouses, and stress a healthy person can find themselves sinking into a depression. When you also add the pain, frustration, medications, doctor visits, tests and everything else that goes along with having a chronic illness – life becomes even harder.

There are great resources on the internet – use them to educate yourself about depression – the warning signs, treatments, etc. Don’t hesitate to ask for help – if you’re feeling overwhelmed – talk to your doctor, you’re not alone and he can help.
