Chronic illness,: all the complications and limitations that go along with it, can contribute to depression. Depression in turn makes you feel all that much worse. If your medical problems are well managed and your physical symptoms are under control, you might be clinically depressed. Please discuss your sadness with your doctor & get a referral to a therapist. Best wishes. Dr. Anne.
