Thank you for waiting.
It sounds like her medication is not helping for her condition. Right?
Does her doctor know she has trouble maintaining her house clean and neat? You stated she doesn't get depressed. She exhibits hypersomnia. She may be tried all the time.
Perhaps, menopause, mood swings, and profound fatigue may have caused or contributed to her behavior.
Symptoms of menopause include mood swings including irritability, depression, and anxiety.
Hormone therapy (HT) may be helpful.
First of all, she may need to see her primary care doctor for a physical check-up to detect and rule out any medical condition that may be causing or contributing to profound fatigue.
She may also try stress
reduction techniques and Cognitive-behavior therapy for her condition.
Yoga, biofeedback, acupuncture, massage therapy, meditation
, and deep breathing exercises may be helpful to improve her mood and boost energy.
I would advise her to see a psychotherapist to express and process her feelings and thoughts and get advice and support WEEKLY.
She may ask her doctor for a psychologist/psychotherapist that she can work with weekly. Or she may call her insurance company and get a list of providers (licensed psychologists or psychotherapists) in her area.
Or, you can search a licensed psychologist on internet- such as the PSYCHOLOGY TODAY website. Go to (http://therapists.psychologytoday.com/ppc/prof_search.php?iorb=4764) and enter your zip code and optional category of specialty such as Bipolar disorder. Read psychotherapists’ profile to see if he or she specializes in Cognitive-behavior therapy.
Also, a heart-healthy diet like Omega 3 fatty acid may improve her brain functioning and mood. Focus on fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Choose low-fat protein sources, such as fish, lean meat and skinless poultry. Hydrate self during daytime. Get plenty of calcium and vitamin D in food or supplements.
Physical activity increases blood flow to her whole body, including your brain. This may help improve her mood and boost her physical energy.
Other recommendations for her are:
Avoid use of alcohol and drugs.
Sleep in complete darkness and try to be out in bright light during the day.
Spend time in nature weekly
Have pleasurable activities with friends and family.
Choose to listen to sounds that have positive effects on her mood.
Please let me know if you have more questions or I have overlooked any. Warm regards,
