Depression is a very important and underrecognized problem in heart disease, until NOW! Studies have shown that people known to have heart disease are more likely to suffer from depression than healthy people.
As well, people with depression are more likely to develop heart disease than those without a history of depression.
So, get off the rocking chair, walk and get some light therapy. This will make you less depressed. If this doesn't improve your mood, don't be shy about talking to your doctor about antidepressants!
