Spring Allergies That Make You Depressed?
Even though spring seems like coming slowly this year, we still got to remember that as soon as those rainy days are over, most of us got to prepare Kleenex sheets, for a new fight against allergies. People have a sniffing noses, red eyes, all day, and in recent article written by Elizabeth Landau, CNN, it says that there are actual connections between mood change and seasonal allergy.
Implying that: "Seasonal allergies, which affect about 36 million Americans, aren't just an annoyance; many doctors agree there is a real connection between allergies and mood", research also has shown that there is about a doubling of risk for depression in a person suffering allergies and, if you've been seen by an allergist, that about triples the likelihood of having depression. And that's actually questions terms like "Clinical depression" and "Social disturbance", but actually the secret is within the the biological response, which is briefly explained in article. Knowing the cause is always helpful in solving the solution. Can we fight depression that caused by allergy? Of course. Then, we can live positive ;)
