Can Stress And High Blood Pressure Be Reduced By Screaming?
Doctor, I have an aunt who gave birth two months ago. About a week ago, he was rushed to the hospital due to seizures and high blood pressure. From what I heard he was stressed out facing financial difficulties. For several days he acted like a child, for example singing loudly or shouting scolding each member of our family. Has it entered into the symptoms of postpartum depression? What can be done to cure it? And is it true that letting him scream and get angry can make him recover?
Postpartum depression (PPD) / postpartum depression is a condition that can occur suddenly or slowly dying that starts in the first year of delivery. PPD occurs more than 14 days and symptoms that appear more severe. Symptoms that appear for example:
feeling sad constantly feeling guilty tends to pull away easily emotions not caring for oneself easily tired difficult to sleep difficult to concentrate feeling there is something wrong with the baby having bad thoughts towards babies and others symptoms of psychosis, which can be caused by severe depression. Allowing sufferers to get angry does not help cure them. It is better to suggest your aunt's family to bring your aunt to see a mental specialist / psychiatrist. The doctor will carry out further tests on your aunt to determine the cause and determine the next treatment that can be in the form of psychological therapy and / or medication. Make sure the family gives full support to your aunt and her husband. If your aunt looks dangerous to her baby, keep the baby away from your aunt.
