Recurrent UTI's: Any chronic recurrent illness can cause depression/anxiety. Have your cultures been positive lately to rule out interstitial cystitis? Perhaps it is time to follow up with your urologist to discuss it. Drink water until your urine is light yellow. Recurrent infections often happen from sexual intercourse or wiping back to front. Exercise and fish oil omega 3 and antidepressants can help, too.
