Hello, I need some help with my mother’s depression. She is 55 years old and initial phase of menopause is gone, but unfortunately the main symptom, depression, remained. Is that condition really curable? I am not sure what is worse, seeing her depressed or drugged with medications. Did anyone have some positive experience with depression treatment?

Well, unfortunately, brain is still one organ in our body that is far from being researched and understood completely. So, some symptoms that happen and are mind/brain related might only be controlled and sustained, but not removed. And what's even worse, depression often comes as a result of the way of living, everyday stress, problems etc. And that is something that cannot be dealt with easily. Meds will help to a certain point.

You can try to help your mother fighting with depression as much as you can. For example try to spend more time with her and to convince her to ease her stress with some type of exercising. Yoga is a great way of reducing stress level and it is also beneficial because it raises the level of happy hormone in our organism and this can help in fighting depression a lot.

And if you convince some of her friends to accompany her as well than you will probably do more than one good thing. Soon this will become a habit and it will be easier for her to fight depression. Taking medications is needed sometimes so don’t avoid it completely!
