Asked: 2018-07-10 20:08:49
Got sick and admitted to the hospital where the put me on morphine to cope with screaming pain. Being at the hospital for a few months, I stayed on morphine. Thankfully I'm out of the hospital now and off of the morphine but I feel depressed.

When someone who uses morphine is predisposed to mental health problems, it can cause that someone to become depressed. Addiction is also a common route to depression.
