Lost Memories After Miscarriage.?
Tonight, my name is Bian. N Yesterday my wife had a miscarriage for the second time. After she found out that she had a miscarriage. She cried then laughed. After 30-45 minutes later he was just silent and looked dumbfounded. Then she forgot about her husband, her memory stuck 9 months ago. I tried to remind him. And he began to remember little by little. When he woke up from sleep, his memories came back and it was like that. How to handle it how?
Good afternoon Bian, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Memory loss or amnesia is a condition where a person cannot remember information, create new information, recount experiences, or events that have happened to the person. This condition is broadly divided into two, anterograde amnesia where a person cannot create new memories, but he can still remember his old memories well, and retrograde amnesia where a person cannot remember past events but can still remember new things.
Among the causes and risk factors for amnesia are:
Traumatic events, stress, depression Head injury Aging process Stroke Brain inflammation Tumors / brain cancer Inadequate nutrition Diseases Dementia Consumption of certain drugs Alcohol dependence
In the case you described, most likely the trigger for your wife's condition was a traumatic event that caused her stress, disappointment or major depression. The feeling of being unable or unprepared to face the reality, and when he finds out, his subconscious mind 'protects' him from the pain of losing a child for the second time by covering up the memory, which in mental medicine is called repression or repression.
Considering your story, our advice is to consult a psychiatrist on this issue. Your psychiatrist will help your wife to be more accepting of the problem at hand, so that her subconscious doesn't have to suppress the memory. The methods used can vary, can use the help of drugs, psychotherapy, meditation exercises, hypnotherapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy.
Meanwhile, keep trying to support your wife. Don't force him to remember right away, but keep calm and try to get him to agree to see a psychiatrist. Do not be swallowed up by public opinion or stigma about seeing a psychiatrist, because all science is part of health, and stands based on facts and data. May your wife get well soon.
That's all, hope it helps.
