Age, depression, anxiety, ADD, head trauma, etc. All can affect memory, especially short-term memory. But it is not uncommon for people to have this problem. It also has to do in what kind of circumstances you meet people. In stressful situations like, for example, a job interview when your mind is on how you will be assessed, your brain does not process it to your memory. Repeating the name during introductions can help one remember, e.g., "Hi, I'm Kyle," "Hi, Kyle, I'm Kathy," instead of, "Hi, I'm Kyle," "Hi, I'm Kathy." READ MORE
High TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) indicates low thyroid (hypothyroidism), which causes depression due to medical illness. It is different from MDD (major depressive disorder), which is mental.

It is very important to treat it asap. READ MORE

Your mother is what is called a hypochondriac, meaning that she thinks she is ill. If you eliminate one disease, the person quickly finds symptoms of another and so on. It is very difficult to persuade her that there is nothing wrong. It is a form of anxiety disorder. Antidepressants or anti-anxiety meds can help. Regular doctor visits and blood work can temporarily alleviate the symptoms. 1 on 1 counseling can very effective as well. READ MORE
It is hard to assess your son from the info in your question. His behavior may be just transient teenager anger or rebellious acting out. More serious, he could have conduct disorder that, if not resolved, can become antisocial personality disorder when 18 y/o. Conduct disorder is characterized by a lack of empathy, cruelty towards animals, stealing, skipping school, running away from home, lying, physical fighting, drugs, abusing alcohol, and others. Medications have little effect. The preferred treatment is therapy. Intensive 1 on 1 counseling the sooner the better. Often, high-discipline settings are very beneficial similar to military camps.

Speaking to her is always a good idea. What does she do other than reading? Does she have a social life? Friends, a boyfriend? Is she more to herself? Seems like she may have a social phobia, which characterizes with avoiding things that cause anxiety like going out, meeting people, difficulty looking someone in the eyes when meeting or speaking, writing when somebody watches, dining or speaking in public, and others. Constant anxiety may cause depression and question the reason for existence, negativism (e.g., reading only sad, pessimistic literature). It would be beneficial for your daughter to see a psychiatrist. Depression is a serious illness that can be successfully treated. READ MORE
Medication in treatment of OCD are helpful. They, however, need to be prescribed in higher doses than for depression. If one causes side effects, it is prudent to try a different one. 1 on 1 therapy may be very beneficial. Therapy and meds work better than either one alone.

The best treatment I believe is recently approved by FDA d.TMS (Deep Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation). Look it up at www.brainsway.com READ MORE
