I take an antidepressant and have for years. Beyond the "emotional rollercoaster" that we go on when being hit sideways with different symptoms and problems....I see a direct correlation to some emotional lows when my INR is way too low. I dont believe it has to do with my physical symptoms...like frustration from not feeling well or pain. I feel it is actually an altered state of emotion...be is neurological or what have you.
I wonder if the lack of blood flow (due to sticky blood) when the INR is low can add to emotional lows if you are predisposed to depression as I am?
I noticed it was written that an infrequent sign of APS is mental health difficulties such as depression and psycosis. Just curious how many people with APS deal with emotional ups and downs.
Some days trying to stay positive is difficult enough, esp when you have to fight with this disease...fight for you...fight with doctors (not literally) and fight a system that doesnt fully recognize Hughes/APS.
So on a more positive note....
“A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.” Hahaha...just kidding really!
Have an awesome weekend everyone!
