Gut Problems Linking to Depression

I 100% believe that this study is real. I have had problems with my digestive system for a while now and let me tell you, I have had nothing but depression. And not just the sulking around; I have had the type of depression that controls everything you do; like not take a shower for days, lay in your messy room for days watching Hulu or Netflix. Along with going to the bathroom, either to have diarrhea or to vomit. Sometimes it’s not even that, half of the time it is just constipation, nausea or constant dry-heaving.

I am totally behind this article. Half of the people out there have these issues with their gut and they are depressed along with it, and they don’t know that it is linked to one another. When you are feeling sick to your stomach all of the time, it makes you uncomfortable. It makes you not want to go out, or hang out with people if you’re constantly in the bathroom or if you’re in pain every waking moment. So that in turn, leads to depression. It leads to you laying around, not doing anything.

This isn’t a pity party for me and I am not looking for any sympathy. But recently, I have had a lot of problems with my gut and I have had depression along with it, as I stated before. But with my pain and discomfort, my depression has made me do and say a lot of things that I cannot take back. I have called off my wedding, I have ended my engagement, I have hurt somebody that I love and I have wished things upon myself that I do not mean. I have practically hurt everyone around me by the things that I have said, that I absolutely do not mean. Luckily, everyone around me understands what I am going through, especially the man that I love. That’s really what people like me need when they are going through something like this. And it is so difficult to explain to people why you can’t do certain things, because most people take offense to it and they think that you’re just blowing them off. When in reality, you’re completely miserable.

I am not a doctor, I am not a nurse. But I do know that this article is true because I am living it right now and there are other people out there, living it right now also. And to the people who read the article and read what I say, I hope and pray that you overcome what you are going through. And all I ask in return, is to keep me in your prayers also.

Love, light and prayers to all of you.
