Vitamin D Blues

My doctor called me yesterday and told me I have a vitamin D deficiency. I looked up the symptoms of a vitamin D deficiency. Help me to understand why I'm having a lot of the problems I am having. I was surprised to find that a vitamin D deficiency can cause depression. A main source of vitamin d is the sun. The lack of sun in the winter time may be the cause of the winter blues.

Lately I have been feeling very tired and achey. I have also been a little depressed. I am lactose intolerant so I avoid a lot of milk products. Because I was sick a lot the last year I did not go outside. I also avoid the outdoors due to allergies. Because of my bladder I  avoid eggs which cause irritation. It is no wonder sent that I am so achey and depressed. Because you get vitamin D from the sun, from eggs, and from milk.

I hope the new supplements will help me feel better.
