My mother aged 54, suffers from depression and peri-menopausal symptoms. There is no apparent cause for her to be depressed as all is well in my family. My sister and I are well settled. My father is in great health and has a good job. Early symptoms of depression started showing up about three years back. Sessions with the counselor have not helped much. She has been on anti-depressant drugs for quite sometime now. However, I wish there could be some way out to assist her to regain her enthusiasm for life.
Suffering from depression
Welcome to A2A, nanos. It's possible it may be connected with hormone changes at menopause, or possibly just her age - an age when it becomes clear that some dreams you had just aren't going to happen, and when people can lose their goals.
Depression feeds on itself, and apart from the medication, the best you can do for her is to encourage her to get out as much as she can - perhaps a vacation away if she is able.
I am sorry to hear about your mom! Yes, I would be concerned for your mum also. There are alternative therapies for people suffering from depression and peri-menopausal symptoms. Have you heard of http://www.lonstein.com/ ? It is a site on the internet, which promotes good health and well-being for women. It explains a new method of creating Chiropractic & Acupuncture to bring about long lasting change in your life. The website has more information and explains the process and how many sessions!
