Thanks for writing in.
I understand your concern but it is definitely possible for a person to have several co-existing disorders at the same time. These disorders often result from the same psychological factors and abnormalities in neurotransmitters. Faith in your physician and adherence to treatment are important to help you lead a healthy life.
