I've actually been terribly depressed/suicidal for the past six years. Also I had very poor nutrition, rarely exercised, and it wasn't until this year that I took multivitamins. My chronic Depression was due to issues unrelated to cheilitis, although when I had cheilitis it obviously made my Depression worse. 2 years after I had cheilitis, I lost about 30 pounds and became very underweight and was extremely stressed. Yet my cheilitis never came back.
