Can You Come for a Visit? My ME/CFS Says No
My daughter and son-in-law just had a baby last week. We are thrilled. But we won't be able to see the baby or hold her any time soon. We won't be able to take over little gifts or help out with housework or babysitting.

    :) Please don't worry Peggy-Sue. That might be how we feel sometimes, but I promise you it's not how we look! :)

    The abstract doesn't list all the main factors associated with depression - odds ratios from Table 2:
    (higher scores mean less problems with the SF-36 PF, hence the lower ORs)

    So, as you say, the consequences of dealing with living with a severe chronic illness.

    Female sex was borderline significant

    Interestingly, when adjusting for other variables
    School attendance of 40% or more 0.36 (0.23 to 0.56), p<0.0001 Adjusted for other variables: 0.75 (0.44 to 1.28), p=0.28
    the protective value of school attendance of 40% or less decreased a lot and was no longer significant.
    So forcing a child to school may not make if any benefit for their mental health (at least as measured by the HADS).
