Hello, Depression and anxiety are not disability. They are mental health issues. However, you may get qualified as disabled (by social security office) if your symptoms are debilitating and persistent regardless of medication and therapy. There are many types of treatment for them. I hope I answered your question. Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
No. The moment you start taking meds they will start interacting with your brain cells. It might take about 4 weeks before you see concrete improvement. In these 4 weeks, you might feel more depressed off your triggers are still present or even if you believe your meds are not working when in fact they are. Keep taking your meds as prescribed and follow doctor's directions to augment medication amount or strength. Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
It depends. There are researches that tell us that most depression will go away on its own after 4 to 6 months. However, if it's a type of depression that is debilitating you and you cannot function normally, you should look for both psychiatric (meds) and psychological (talk) help to get a good treatment for it. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
Yes, there's a possibility, because there is a genetic component of depression. Also, when you live with someone with depressive symptoms, that environment itself can be a depressive environment, too - where people cannot talk loud or be lively since the depressive person is down or sleeping.

I treat patients with anxiety daily. I use an integrative psychodynamic approach where I teach the patient a handful of skills (coming from CBT, ACT, EFT, mindfulness, etc.) and provide psychoeducation - all necessary to be able to calm your body down. Then I use some psychoanalytic approach to find the origin and maintenance of the anxiety. This treatment is not too long, but very effective. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
Hello, I'm sorry to hear you went through this experience. This must have left you feeling more vulnerable and anxious about the works and people around you. A sense of safety is one of our primary needs. When that gets violated, it can leave you with a sense on uncertainty and build up a lot anxiety. It is imperative that you engage in therapy to process this vulnerability and any anxiety steamed from this experience. Regards, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
Yes. CBT will challenge your thoughts, biases, and schemas and will help you look into the behaviors that are necessary to change in order to have a better relationship. CBT is a small part of Gottman therapy, that uses an array of techniques for different issues. Try to find a good personality to help you both and hello your relationship. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
In a nutshell, it is the same thing. The difference is that some people may only have anxiety about something specific, such as crossing a bridge, or walking by a dog, whereas other people (like you) might have more than one situation that brings you anxiety (therefore, generalized). Anxiety is one of the easiest disorder to treat with a psychologist. Find one that fits what you're looking for and start your process right away. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
Most "mental illnesses" are in a continuum - there are mild cases and there are severe cases. A lot of people (50% of the population will at some point suffer from a form of "mental illness" in their lifetime) suffer from depression and after a while (3 to 6 months) the depression goes away. The severe case is when it does not go away, and causes many issues in other parts of their life: such as work, relationship, or even development of psychosis). Other severe mental illness is like what you'd see in people suffering from schizophrenia, or other debilitating illness. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
Working with a psychologist is confidential! Unless you want to use health insurance, of course! I suggest my patients pay out of pocket instead of using their insurance if they can, so that will guarantee a wholesome treatment without the fear of outside interferences. It is the best investment you will ever do for yourself. I'm sure it is not easy to live with the symptoms you are presenting. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
Hello, Developing fear of something has to do with your increased awareness of surviving. Oftentimes, a new parent will develop anxiety over surviving, since they need to be there to raise their child. The ONLY treatment for anxiety is therapy. You can take medications to relieve the symptoms, but it will not cure your anxiety. You'll need to engage in psychological treatment for anxiety (it does not take too long!). It's an investment on yourself - for life! Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
Only assessing her can you know for sure what's happening to her. A sudden increase in libido could be caused by hormonal changes. (Any new medication?) Each person has a particular level of sex energy and should listen to their body when that energy should be released (through sex, masturbation, or exercising). As her partner, you both should have a conversation of how often your sex energy needs a release and how you will both do that. A question I have for you is: is this an increase of libido or is she now being more comfortable with her sexuality and allowing you to witness her masturbating? Either way, you both could use a psychologist to help you start this conversation and engage in a sex life you both want. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
Yes. Try to find psychologists who apply "mindfulness" techniques in their treatment. There is a quite big list of relaxation skills you can learn in session with a psychologist and practice whenever you fell the anxiety arriving. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
Perhaps. Grief is a common process after the death of a loved one. Within a year or so, the person should resume activities and engage in a new type of routine -without their loved one. If depression/anxiety/irritation persists beyond that, then it's time to consult with both a psychiatrist and a psychologist. They both can help her heal from the loss and resume life. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
Yes. There are techniques such as mindfulness, EFT, and others that can help her with her pain. I'd also suggest she look into CBD oils and cream (also sold online nowadays), which helps with pain. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
Yes. Although she might need to engage in a long treatment to figure things out and find the root of this behavior. Suggest she look for a psychologist to help with those issues, and help her with other "adulting" issues. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
That can be caused by different things: severe depression, overuse of substances, or such. Talking to a psychiatrist will help you to be formally diagnosed and treated. Be well, Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
Absolutely! He might have developed a high sense of anxiety - for fear of dying or something he got anxious over this medical process. Treatment for anxiety for children can help him learn skills to regulate his body daily, and that perhaps will help with the night terrors. Be well. Dr. Rosana Marzullo-Dove READ MORE
