If you have PA or P and you also feel like you may be suffering from clinical depression, this is a thread dedicated to you.

If you think you or your loved one may be suffering from clinical depression, we strongly urge you to find medical assistance.

If you believe that you may be suicidal, or if you have a friend or family member who is suicidal please seek help immediately. In most communities, you may dial 911 or go to an emergency room to seek assistance if you are unable to call or reach a doctor. If you wish to speak to someone immediately from a suicide hotline, here are some numbers you can call.



other numbers can be found at:

Here are the symptoms of clinical depression; Please note that you do not have to have all of them to be clinically depressed; Please see your health care provider if you suspect you may be suffering from clinical depression

Feelings of hopelessness, pessimism
Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness
Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed, including sex
Decreased energy, fatigue, being "slowed down"

Insomnia, early-morning awakening, or oversleeping

Thoughts of death or suicide; suicide attempts

Persistent physical symptoms that do not respond to treatment, such as headaches, digestive disorders, and chronic pain

We welcome questions pertaining to personal experiences with clinical depression. In addition to our personal experiences with clinical depression, we will - from time to time - also be posting links to websites about clinical depression and medications used to treat clinical depression. We may discuss our experiences with particular medications or treatment modalities (including counseling).

This thread is designed to be a support for those who are suffering from or think they maybe suffering from clinical depression and who also have PA or P. We also welcome caregivers and friends who are concerned about these issues.

We are not posting here as doctors, or trained counselors, but individuals who provide friendship and support to one another through our common experience with Psoriatic Arthritis and/or Psoriasis.

Posts that reference medications should not be taken as an endorsement by the NPF.

I have no financial interest in any pharmaceutical company.
