Women’s Sexual Disorders: An In-Depth of the Most Exciting Issues

Sexual dysfunction among women is far more common than is commonly thought. Many of them simply do not notice the signs of such disorders or do not know that these are symptoms of disorders. But even if they find sexual problems in themselves, women do not dare to turn to a specialist due to the delicacy of the issue or simply out of ignorance, which specialist should sign up for a consultation. In fact, with the right approach, sexual dysfunctions…

Nerves and heart

Nerves and heart

The effect of emotional stress on general well-being is known to both doctors and patients. Many systems of the body suffer, including immunity, the nervous system, the gastrointestinal tract, but first of all, the load on the circulatory system increases. How exactly stress affects the heart is a controversial issue. We can unequivocally say that negative events leave a mark and do not pass without a trace for the cardiovascular system. How stress affects the heart and blood vesselsThere are…

Depression is an ” invisible ” disease

Depression is an ” invisible ” disease

What can I say, in our society, talking about sexually transmitted diseases is less embarrassing than about depression and bipolar disorder. Depression and bipolar disorder (bipolar disorder) are not diagnosed on clinical examination. For society, they do not seem to exist. Three quarters of people in Europe suffering from major depression are not receiving adequate treatment , according to WHO figures. In Russia, the situation is even worse if we take into account a number of factors: the low level of domestic psychiatry, the closeness of the topic of mental disorders and the official statistics of suicides. Russia ranks first in the number of suicides among young people, and the second – in the absolute number of suicides, after China, where the population is 10 times greater. God forbid, if one in twenty receives adequate treatment. By adequate treatment, I do NOT mean the classic Soviet cocktails of antipsychotics, which make a plant out of a person, depriving him of thinking, feelings and chances for a full life. I came across such cases very closely, and I myself had great chances of becoming one of them. Most – friends and family alike – will say “ pull yourself together, rag ” to a depressed teenager instead of advising him to see a therapist, let alone admit the thought that it might be necessary to take antidepressants. A person with depression or bipolar disorder is the opposite of the classic Dale Carnegie image of a successful person – always positive, disciplined, ” no fuss “. An image that is broadcast from all screens and covers. Therefore, the majority hide these diseases even from themselves. Many people with clinical depression or type 2 bipolar disorder (that is, with a high weight of the depressive phase) believe that they are simply not strong enough, weak-willed. They hate themselves for their weakness, for their thousand shortcomings – after all, with depression, all the shortcomings are like under a magnifying glass, and it is incredibly difficult to find something good in yourself. They try to compensate for their ” weakness ” with visual simulation of a normal life for the environment and motivational literature. Or they leave reality in games, TV shows, fiction – and prefer to return to reality as rarely as possible. Yes, mild situational depression can go away on its own. But there is a gap between light and heavy . One of the key differences is that severe depression progresses if left untreated. It is as if a person with cancer, instead of treatment, ran marathons to prove to everyone and to himself that he is healthy. What will be the result? Looking at the suicide statistics, it is clear that more people die from undiagnosed depression and bipolar disorder each year than have died from coronavirus at the time of this writing. Only about the coronavirus – at every step, quarantine and self-isolation, but about mental disorders – as if they did not exist. To solve any serious problem, you must first admit that it exists. So it is with depression. It is important to diagnose it and, if there is one, to accept this fact as a starting point. I made a separate post on diagnosing depression.

Situational and Clinical Depression: What’s the Difference?

Situational and Clinical Depression: What’s the Difference?

It is clinical depression that I sometimes refer to as “ real ” or “ real ” in this blog. This is not entirely correct – according to the medical definition, both situational (= situational) and clinical depression are quite real. But that’s why I allow myself to draw this line: situational depression is understandable to anyone. She always has pretty obvious reasons and, more often than not, she does not need serious treatment. Most healthy adults have experienced it in one way or another. Situational depression can be caused by…

Depression: A Cause Of Smoking?

The list of smoking-related problems is growing. Thus, smoking will not be enough to crush our skin, cause bronchitis and cancer, and cause addiction, but it will increase the risk of depression. At least according to research done by several researchers over the years. For years, doctors have known that many smokers have depression. For this reason, smoking cessation must be accompanied by endless precautions, and some ” addicts ” are often advised to postpone this difficult moment in order to reach it in a more favorable…

Cognitive impairment and depression.

Cognitive impairment and depression.

Many already know that cognitive impairments are impairments in the functioning of cognitive processes (memory, attention, speech, recognition, etc.) associated with age-related changes in the body. This topic is gaining increasing relevance due to the increase in human life expectancy and the aging of the population. Let us stipulate right away that according to the modern WHO age classification, the elderly are considered to be people from 60 to 75 years old, therefore the use of the word “elderly” refers…
