Has anyone else found a link between depression and personal hygiene? And in turn, illness? #Depression #hygiene #skininfection

I’ve been having really low days for the past month (began when I was fired on my birthday)... and I’m wondering if there’s a connection between depression and not having the effort to actually take care of yourself... I was hardly showering, sleeping all day, mindlessly scrolling on my phone all night (as I write this, it’s 3am). I’ve always been a scratcher. I’m very used to my family and friends slapping me because I’m scratching myself raw out of anxiety. but lately I’ve noticed that those wounds aren’t healing. I went to the doctor and was told I have impetigo, more commonly known as school sores. so I’ve got antibiotic pills, and cream, and I’ve got to clean the wounds in an antiseptic wash. I’m supposed to clean, cream and bandaid each of the wounds 3 times a day... but I simply dont have the energy to get off the couch to eat more than once or twice a day, let alone tend to 11+ wounds!

Does anyone have any suggestions or does anyone else relate?
