Do you have a physical diagnosis as well?

Hello friends,
Are you living with both a mental health diagnosis as well as a physical health diagnosis? Do you ever find that your mental health seems to be exacerbating your physical health problems? Do you ever find your physical health problems are making your mental health status worse? I'd love to hear from you!

Invitation To Any And All!

At the top of your homescreen, you'll see my brand new blog named "The Vicious and Virtuous Circle." This is a chance to discuss how mental and physical disorders exacerbate each other and lead to the "doom spiral," the Mind-Body connection, psychosomatic phenomena, etc. I'd love to hear from y'all -- it would help my blog flourish and give me ideas on how I could help my community more. And I care.

Peace.

What is a vicious circle?

Mental health issues exacerbate physical health issues, which, in turn, exacerbate mental health issues, which.....thus is the Vicious Circle. This needs *intervention* to change this phenomenon from a Vicious Circle to a Virtuous Circle.

I was the biggest Xanax addict on God's green earth. I was taking 6 mg per day at one point, begging and manipulating my doctors to give me that much. I would go to doctors and pharmacies under phony names. I'm so glad I didn't get into trouble!! I would buy them online from who knows what country. I would even buy them off the streets. I'm off Xanax now, but they turned me into a more anxious person than I was at baseline.
Would anyone like to share similar experiences with the Xanax Trap?

Hello friends,

My real name is Michael and I live in Cleveland. I've been struggling with treatment-resistant depression and anxiety most of my life. Now I have physical health problems to create a "vicious circle" such as cardiac problems, etc. I've decided, at age 55, that I'd like to get a freelance writing career going to occupy my mind (I'm on Disability and can't stand the purposelessness of my life) and hopefully make some extra dough (I get 900 a month--that's not a living wage!) I was wondering if y'all had any topics you may like to see me focus on in my writing--right now, I'm concentrating on topics such as Disability, the Americans With Disabilities Act, etc., and mental health. Please share here and I'll do my best to incorporate them. Thanks, friends--upward and onward!! #DisabilityAdvocacy
