My apologies if this topic has been addressed previously, but I'm wondering whether anyone has developed depression along with gastroparesis or IBS. Every since having been diagnosed with GP/IBS a couple of years ago I've found it challenging psychologically to deal with a chronic illness. But in the past couple of weeks things have progressed way beyond this, and I've become depressed. But the depression doesn't seem like it's just because GP is tough to deal with. It feels profoundly physiological. The worse my symptoms and the less I eat, the more depressed I feel. When my symptoms lighten up a bit, the depression lifts. I'm wonder if the depression is being caused by a lack of calories and/or lack of proper nutrition. I eat very little and can only seem to tolerate very bland white bread products--what a change from how I used to be.... I do take a multivitamin everyday, and I drink Ensure sometimes (to add calories and nutrients). Have others struggled with depression and found strategies for dealing with it?
