The Co-Conspirators?

While it’s true that MDD had a very debilitating effect upon me, it’s also true that it didn’t operate in a vacuum. Sadly, other elements, both physical and psychological, played their role in my fall.

In addition to the MDD, I suffer from severe sleep apnea. I’m also very much an introvert. Both of these features, I believe, acted to potentiate the influence of MDD upon me. That is, my inability to enjoy proper sleep and my innate¬†comfort with solitude, operated together to exacerbate the effects of the MDD.

Beginning with the next post, I will explore this argument in greater detail, by giving you a fuller understanding of sleep apnea and exploring how my introversion made me vulnerable. I invite you to join me as I share those parts of my journey.
