Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for using healthcare magic.

I have gone through your available history.

Your symptoms might be due to
- Early onset dementia
- Depression
- Residual effect of stroke.

You should consult your doctor to rule out physical causes of your symptoms. Doctor may advise you to go for blood tests like vitamin B12 deficiency or may advise you to have radiological investigations.

Doctor may do mini - mental status examination to rule out dementia.

If you are in stress, you should consult psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and management. Doctor may offer you anti depressant drugs like desvenlafaxine or sertraline or may offer counselling.

I hope It will help you.
