Suffering from depression and peri-menopausal symptoms.

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.


  • sorry your mom is depressed. if 3 years of help has not had positive affect i would pursue additional efforts.
    i would see an endocrinologist to check on thyroid and menopause issues
    in addition i would have her see her gen. practitioner as depression can also be initiated by physical problems such as low grade infection...
    hope you get some answers
  • 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 EDITED? 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!

  • mikert, there is no reason needed for depression.

    Situational depression results from "reasons". When there are no real reasons that is when it gets tricky to help.

    If she has been seen for 3 years and is still in depression I would suggest that further help is needed.

    Please do not assume there has to be a reason for depression. It does not help the sufferer and can make them feel even more guilty because most of us would do anything to not feel that way!
