I already knew that depression causes effects within our body things that sometimes we pass off the effect/s as something else.
There are a couple of things that I am trying to wrap my head around:
Lack Of Energy
I saw my GP this morning and mentioned to him about this lack of energy. I had been searching for some natural remedies that might help. I asked him about something I had found called “Free Testerones”. He advised me not to take them for they may have some serious side-effects also. One that he mentioned caught my attention, that was it could cause harm to the prostate. So, no free testerones for this guy. I would offer a word of advice, that before you try anything speak to your doctor first.
When I entered into high school I weighed ninety-nine pounds and stood around six foot one.
I now stand around five foot ten due to compression in my back.
I eventually gained some weight over the years but always remained slim. Two years ago I weighed about one hundred forty-five pounds. Being inactive because of several bone fractures started a weight gain. I now weigh around one hundred ninety pounds.
I now have a better understanding about how our body image affects our disposition. I look in the mirror and see nothing but a blob of fat. Triggering a wave of despair within me.
Going to the gym is out, and finding a diet I can work with seems impossible.
So, I have learned two more side-effects of depression! YUCK!
