My husband, 53 years old, has almost stopped communicating with family and friends. He avoids company, refuses to go out other than office, doesn't answer phone calls except extremely important. He is a regular drinker and a chain smoker. He is not open to any kind of conversation. He watches TV all the time he is at home. He sleeps around the clock on weekends. His health checkup shows that his vital organs are functioning perfectly. He suffers from Vitamin D deficiency, for which he is under medication for the past 3 months and his triglyceride level is high. We are married for 24 years. He hardly ever initiated sex, even when we were newly married. He is a single child of over-protective parents. He has had a few extra-marital liasons till some years back. He has never initiated any kind of family outings. His academic performance in school/college was below average. There was traces of sexual perversion and sadism in him, which get exposed through his behaviour at times, specially when he is high on alcohol. He gets attracted to very young girls and maid servants. He refuses to undergo counselling/treatment. How can I help him?

Occupational therapy has a big role in children with autism. To improve their attention. Concentration. And sitting tolerance. Which is an absolute necessity of every child become independent in age appropriate activity? In autism, children lacking eye contact. There in own world lot of distraction. Sensory seeking behaviour. Stereotyped behaviours. Repetitive thinks of some nonmeaningful play. Spinning objects. Moving around. Unable to sit at one place. Which interferes in the day to day life. Occupational therapist having knowledge and skills of sensory integration. Can only handle that kind of children? They will get benefit from purposeful and meaningful play activities provided in each therapy sessions is going to improve the child sense of orientation. Surrounding and sense of entity as a child that I am also having some role in society and I have to perform well confidently. Occupational therapy also improves fine motor and gross motor skills in children which are required in daily routine to perform the task eg. Writing. Climbing. Also, the occupational therapy helps to improve the sensory integration in speech area to communicate with oromotor musculatute. And last but not the least take the child towards independence in social and environmental challenges. Guys if you see any signs of motor delay or speech delay. Please consult a neuropaediatrician and occupational therapist who are practicing in paediatrics.

Life is constant game of changes and people who can adapt to it and move on generally tend to find their pockets of happiness. From bad finances to lack of love to a near ones loss, each of us constantly face struggles that can leave us drained and depressed. People often work on these external factors to find their happiness. Those who suffer from depression as an illness though find it taking over multiple spheres of their lives disabling them from doing routine tasks with ease. Depression, like other diseases, can also have a biological origin.
Several theories concerning the biologically based cause of depression have been suggested over the years. Simply put, chemical imbalance in the brain can be a trigger to depression. As the 'command center' of our body, the brain uses a number of chemicals as messengers to communicate with other parts of itself and with the nervous system. These chemical messengers, called neurotransmitters are released and received by the brain's nerve cells called neurons. Neurons are constantly communicating with each other by way of exchanging neurotransmitters. This communication system is essential to all of the brain's functions.
Among the biological causes of depression, the most prominent and widely researched is the monoamine hypothesis. The three main monomine triggers of imbalances that trigger depression are neurotransmitters called serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine. Serotonin regulates functions like sleep, aggression, eating, sexual behavior, and mood. Similarly, the catecholamine hypothesis suggests that a deficiency of the neurotransmitter norepinephrine (also known as noradrenaline) in certain areas of the brain was responsible for creating depressed mood. Norepinephrine helps our bodies to recognize and respond to stressful situations.
Dopamine plays in important role in helping each of us seek out our 'high' or 'pleasure' from rewards. Low dopamine levels may in part explain why depressed people don't derive the same sense of pleasure out of activities or people that they did before becoming depressed.
Another leading cause of clinical depression is focused on the endocrine system. The endocrine system is responsible for making hormones and releasing them into the blood to regulate processes like reaction to stress and sexual development. Hormonal irregularities may lead to depressive symptoms like loss of appetite and sleep. It is further observed that those who have particular endocrine disorders sometimes develop depression, and some individuals who are depressed develop endocrine problems despite having healthy glands.
In a research done among depressed individuals, over half had a hormone called cortisol in excess in their body and abnormal times of secretion.
Depression can have many triggers and origins and it is important to see the right doctor who can treat the cause, triggers and symptoms in addition to the disease. Depression has a genetic predisposition. Also, the faulty thought pattern alters the physiology by upsetting the hormonal balance. Psychological professional help should be a priority in depression and its role should not be under emphasized.
