Customer Question
Hi my husband 31...

Hi my husband 31 can he be having a midlife crisis ? Or is it something else with similar symptoms

Doctor's Assistant: How is your mood? Are you experiencing regular sleep disturbances (e.g. trouble falling asleep, waking up early)?

He is and he gets frustrated easily and has become insecure and at times feels like I don’t love him

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the Psychologist should know?

He has issues with not knowing his dad plus we just had a son and he complains that he does not know how to be a father

It sounds to me like he is having some issues adjusting to married life and parenthood....this can be common when the obligations feel overwhelming. It sounds like he could benefit from talking to a counselor so he has the place to sort out his feelings. If you love him then maybe you give him this time to work on himself and hopefully you can come back together and be a family. He just may need some support to work through all of this.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
