Illness of any kind is a stressful period for a person if the illness is a prolonged one then coping with it is more difficult. The rising trend in chronic illness has led to a rise in associated mental disorders too. Mental health disorders affect a person’s thinking, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning.
Depression while coping up with hardships thrown by life is not pathological. Giving into the bout of depression and forgetting yourself definitely calls for attention. Nowadays we’re living in a stressful environment and with less social bonding it’s very easy to go into depression.
