Many of us don’t realize that we are suffering from some sort of a mild depression due to the trauma of the Covid virus. A few of us have it real bad. If you think to yourself, “I just don’t feel like my old self,” or if family and friends tell you “You seem different,”’ you should listen to this podcast.
I teamed up my long time girlfriend, Debbie Nigro, a radio personality, with my client, Dr.Arthur Bregman, to discuss this topic after I heard family, friends, and business associates tell me they feel that they lost some of their enthusiasm and spirit during the last two years.
Maybe this podcast will help,
Dr. Arthur Bregman, MD, a Psychiatry Specialist in Coral Gables, FL, with over 47 years of expertise treating illnesses including ADHD, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and various other problems reports…
“Nine out of ten Covid patients who see me on a telemedicine call report a lingering sense of what I like to call ‘Covid dysphoria’ “.
He went on to explain, “After a bout with coronavirus a lot of my patients are not just suffering mild depressive symptoms – they have a more complete personality change. They don’t lose memories and become completely different people, but they say things like ‘My friends tell me I’m not like myself’ or ‘I’m usually such a cheerful person! What happened?’
Whatever happened won’t last forever thank goodness! Luckily for sufferers of ‘Covid dysphoria’, there are a few pointers that Dr. Bregman can share to help folks feel less hopeless and more confident that they’ll overcome this bump in the psychological road. It does tend to go away on its own and with relaxation techniques and a bit of talk therapy people can usually get on the other side of it quicker.
