Default Welcome to Health Support

The link between mental health and physical health is fairly well understood -- they are interrelated and one can and does directly affect the other. Most people recognize the mental disorder they're grappling with by at least some physical symptoms. For instance, people who are dealing with depression may find themselves tired, lethargic, and have difficulty sleeping. People with anxiety might find it difficult to breath during a panic attack, or feel restless and nervous.

The opposite is also true. People who have long term physical illnesses often suffer from related mental health issues as well. Someone battling cancer may feel depressed by the length and severity of the treatment. People with permanent disabilities often find it difficult to maintain a steady state of good mental health because their physical limitations are a constant difficulty.

This forum is for you to discuss these issues, grappling with physical health issues and your mental health issues all in one place. I hope you find support and care in one another's sharing.

Good luck and take care,
DocJohn

Thank you!!! Sometimes it really gets me down and frustrates me when my physical problems affect my abilities. What emotionally hurts the most is when it's hard to play with my kids the way I used to. There are some things that I just can't do anymore. I know that I will make good use of this forum in the future! Thanks again, doc.

Well, hereby I also want to say thank you to all studious members of this site who have provided it for our use. The main thing is that here are some people who have the problems we are right now dealing whth, or, at least, know our feelings well. Here we can see that everyone has his/her own personal problem and everyone suffers from something; it does not matter what it is.
Let's hope we all get rid of our problems and sufferings and improve our life.
regards,
Ahmad
