That really rings true with me. I manage major depression in my life and I know for a fact that my immune system is not what it should be. I catch everything that is going around, besides some frequent sinus infections, occasional UTIs and even lately cavities...in spite of good oral care.
This weekend it has been migraines...maybe not immune related, but certainly stress related. I have missed 2 nights of work because of them. I love my job, but don't have great attendance. Luckily, so far, my supervisor has been ok with it. I use FEMLA to protect my job.
I have support in my life, but when the depression rears its ugly head, all those consequences written about in that article show up in my health.
I have to continue to remind myself that it is all part of the disease process and although I manage it pretty well, the symptoms at times are much worse then other times.
