When you have depression it is often the case that you feel your heart ache, so heavily that if feels like it is weighing you down to the ground and making even the simplest of tasks hard to do, ‘your heart just isn’t in it’ like it used to be.

Science for a long period of time used to segregate the thought processes to just the brain and the heart had the simple function of pumping blood around your body but ancient Egyptians knew differently.
