If you were positive in your outlook on life before you became ill, and coped well in a crisis, you are more likely to be able to cope better with the emotional side of ME/CFS or FMS.

But if you tended to have a more negative outlook on life before your illness, then you’ll unfortunately be more likely to be affected by depression during your illness.

“For people who don’t cope as well, the problems associated with having ME/CFS may well tip the balance and trigger any underlying susceptibility to developing anxiety or depressive illness.”

-- Dr Charles Sheperd, ‘Living With M.E.’, p226 --
