    RE: depression is causing physical health to get worse over time

    Hi Sapienx,

    I do believe that depression can cause or contribute to decreasing physical health over time.

    I found something online that you might want to read that explains why this can happen, and what are the more common physical ailments that can occur as a result of depression.

    I don't know about depression affecting the body to the point of death, but I'm some of that would depend on how well one takes care of their body re their physical health.

    Do you ask the question because areas of your physical health are getting worse as a result of your depression, or just curious?

    Thanks for sharing!
