Is This Depression?
It’s spring – everything is growing, the weather is warming up, so why am I not feeling any spring in my step?
Am I depressed?
You are not alone. Depression is a real disease. Just like a broken bone or an infection, sometimes we get sick or hurt and need help.
If you or a loved one are experiencing some of these symptoms, it may be some form of depression:
- Lethargy, tired all the time
- Body aching
- Bad mood, irritable, angry
- Sad, crying
- Anxious, nervous
- Not interested in anything
- Trouble concentrating
- Poor sleep, Insomnia
- Or sleeping a lot
- Weight gain or loss
Maybe it started with a dramatic life change. A new baby in the family, a divorce, the death of a loved one, a traumatic accident. The causes for depression are many. There may be food sensitivities. Perhaps the brain isn’t producing the feel good hormones, like serotonin or dopamine.
Parkinson’s is a debilitating, progressive disease that affects 1% of people over the age of 60.
In Parkinson’s disease certain cells within the brain stem, called the substantia nigra, make less of the neuro-transmitter dopamine. This causes the jerky, slowed movements, difficulty walking and speaking and the resting tremor of the hands. Perhaps the most famous younger patient is Michael J Fox who was only 29 when he was diagnosed.
Typically Parkinson’s is treated with medication and occupational or physical therapy. There is a brand new application of Laser therapy to reach the area of the disease and stimulate more normal function. Movements can be smoother, better coordinated. Tasks of daily living, like eating can be improved with steadier movements.
