yaa may be
could u plz tell me wht can i do for her..
first and foremost, i would advice both of you to take a break, and go for a short vacation
this will help u guys to get more time to spend with each other
also, try to spend time with each other, at least 1 hr in a day, apart from that duing lunch, - this should be with the TV etc shut off
involve each other in activities like jogging , walks, etc
so that they increase endorphins in the body, and create a sense of well being
apart from this, first was there any proper counselling of your wife ? or just that medications were prescribed ?
k...i m understanding
counselling is the most important part
medications may not be necessary in some cases, if counselling does its work
acutuly doctor i hv very tight schedule
can u tell me the time she has spent for counselling ?
as such no counselling hv been done
how much time, does she spend with her doctor, each time ?
XXXXXXX 15 mins
that appears to be too little
for a case of depression, she needs at least a counselling, for a longer duration, say 30 minutes, to know her progress and advice her accordingly
i would recommend you to consult a psychologist
ok doctor ...i ll keep ur advises in my mind...n trying to support her n give her time as mush as possible..
they can advice her proper methods to manage her issues
and advice her, how to make the best of her situation
