It's reported that the persistent rain will in some way affect people's mood or even trigger some mental disease/s.

Is it disease of diseases here? If both do, are there any differences in meanings? Thnaks.

Hi Angliholic,

The word disease confuses me, too but I found something and I want to share it with you.

When you use a particular name before disease it is used as singular e.g. infectious disease , contagious disease, genetic disease , animal disease, heart disease, social disease, on the other hand , disease is used as plural when you are talking about different diseases or other diseases e.g. list of diseases, list of dog diseases.(animal disease, dog diseases.I think disease is a general name but if you want to something particular you use it as plural)

Here are texts for you:

Can someone please correct my punctuation mistakes?
In the UK, we don't tend to use mental disease. We would say mental illness to refer to a psychological condition rather than a physiological (e.g. neurological) disease or condition

I've removed the bracket beside the last word 'plural' which I didn't notice earlier. I don't see the need for it.

BTW, your love has been accepted.
