Depression is a major side effect or symptom of chronic disease. I have experienced my fair share of it throughout the past 15 years of living with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lyme disease.

Depression is not unusual, nor is it something to be ashamed of. Depression is a natural emotional state that everyone experiences at some point in their lives, in different levels of severity. But with extreme life challenges - like a chronic illness - depression can be much worse.

It can overtake us if we don't have the right tools for coping or overcoming the depressed emotions. 

I'll share some of my bouts with depression and how you may overcome it without relying on medication.
