I have mentioned before about a drug that I take that must be delivered to me, and the nurses question me about my blood tests every month. I also mentioned that of late they have been asking about depression. I thought that secretly they have found out that the drug causes depression as a side effect, and are trying to keep it quiet.
There is a new two year study recently published in Pace, which has found that patients with implanted cardioverter defibrillators are apt to suffer depression, and this can actually cause them to receive more shocks.
This only proves my point more and more that your physical well being has a lot to do with a positive outlook on life.
