Autoimmune Disease - major cause/trigger of mental illness?

Postby daybyday » Sun Jan 22, 2012 11:50 am

I'm curious to know how many of your loved ones were affected by autoimmune disorders (lupus, hashimotos thyroiditis, rheumatoid, excema, psoriasis, sjogrens - some of the more well known). There are over 80 autoimmune diseases to my knowledge.

I think there is a very strong connection between autoimmune diseases and suicide. As anxiety and depression are symptoms (not simply results) of most autoimmune diseases.
Just taking it day by day. I miss you, Dad.
