If a cancer patient said they didn’t want to see a doctor we would be worried about them, but when someone suffers with anxiety or depression, people often think they should just ‘fix’ themselves. Help is out there 🙂 Reply This depends entirely on the type of depression one has. There is treatment resistant depression, which makes it extremely hard for a person in terms of medication. There are plenty of cancer patients that refuse treatment. Having lost a handful of family members to various forms of cancer, I understand why a person might say that. Mental illness is a whole other ballgame. Many people cannot afford treatment, so there’s also that to consider. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
