How can chronic depression be treated?

Hello Dr My mother passed away last July 6 th. I still have these crying spells( bad ones I almost get panicy when I think that I can t see her anymore it s just overwhelming). They just come out of no where. But usually there is a trigger . When they happen I feel as though I ve lost half of my heart!! My mother was a heart transplant recipient. She lived for 16 years with that gift. Thank you, Laura. YYYY@YYYY Oh btw I m an RN and it was crazy difficult to change hats all those years. Daughter/ Nurse back and forth. Did not realize I had to pay. Unable to. I also failed to mention I lost my job 1 week before she passed. My employer ( 1 of the biggest health care systems in Ohio) had no compassion when I exceeded the point limit for absenteeism.. Mother vs job they wanted me to pick my job over her. PLEASE ANSWER....

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello! Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

In my opinion, it would be useful to go for a grief counselling and also start on a low dose of antidepressants say for example see Tramline 25 mg and later on 50. Get adequate sleep, rest and good diet.

Hope this clarifies your concerns. Thank you for the query.

Take care
