Yes if you check out the grief curve can start with shock and denial followed by anger and then sipping to acceptance which is important to aim to get out of the anger stage and curve up the acceptance curve. Frustration not being able to do normal activities tiredness, these can all affect our emotional mind.

Again, I can not say, and am not a medical doctor so do not have enough education regarding Aspergillosis and depression. What I can tell you from experience is that heck yes, I can get depressed when thinking about my mortality but I really work hard at ways to let me live longer. Diet, exercise, positive thinking through reading, friends, and being creative. I can get on my pity pot now and then, but then with using tools through eating right, friends and family, hobbies, and laughter, it does not last long. I am lucky.

Having a chronic disease and being unable to perform normal daily tasks is difficult to come to terms with and to cope with. This takes its toll on the mental health of most patients at some time.

Aspergillosis is a rare disease and it often helps to talk to people with the same disease going through similar experiences - see https://www.facebook.com/groups/aspergillussupport for support.

Knowing that you have an invasive parasite. your body is very depressing to start with.
But accepting it is the key, dealing with the fear that comes up.
Finding out as much as you can, and using a variety of tools to help manage it are very important
