It will be helpful to be understanding, but do not step in to do all the driving for her. She will need to gradually get comfortable with driving again, typically this reaction will only take a few weeks. First allow her be a passenger in the front seat, then ask that she drive, on a quiet road or neighborhood street. If the problem persists, seek help from a phobia treatment specialist. READ MORE
Postpartum sadness is quite common, however postpartum depression which is deeper and more long lasting feelings of depression and despair can be quite serious. Please do not ignore this, thinking that it is only mild sadness. Check in frequently with your wife to hear how she is feeling. Be supportive of her feelings. Be her partner and help out more, and be a friend. If she continues to feel depressed for several weeks, or is thinking about suicide, seek help immediately from a psychiatrist who specializes in women's health. Your wife may also need to discuss her feelings with a psychologist or therapist. PPD can interfere with the parent-baby bonding, and should be attended to. READ MORE
Depression does not lead to dementia. However, untreated depression can interfere with memory and can become serious. Is she eating and sleeping well? Please have her see a geriatric psychiatrist for a full evaluation. This is not something to ignore as “just a passing thing”. If she is currently on medications, she might need a second opinion as medications for depression affect older people differently and she might be having an adverse reaction. She would probably also benefit from speaking to a psychotherapist about her grief. This can be very helpful to an older person who may not wish to “burden “ her children.

A diagnosis of your child, such as of autism, or intellectual disability, is a shock, and there is a normal grieving that parents will have to go through. Some people feel angry "Why me?," others may blame themselves, "What did I do wrong?" and a few will go into denial, "This can't be happening to me, maybe the diagnosis is wrong." All of these responses are normal, and not a sign that your wife is unable to deal with the trauma. This is part of dealing with the trauma, feeling the feelings that come along and being able to express a full range of these feelings to loved ones. READ MORE
Research shows that moderate depression can be alleviated with regular exercise. In addition to this, though, it is helpful to be aware of your thoughts and feelings. In addition, what other stresses are you experiencing? No one thing is a cure, so be clear about what are you expecting. I hope this is helpful. Nancy J Warren PhD READ MORE
