The length of postpartum depression varies though, based on which type you have and the severity of it. The postpartum blues is a “mild and transient mood disturbance” that begins during the first week following childbirth, and “lasts between a few hours and a few days”, while postpartum psychosis “characterizes women who exhibit psychotic symptoms following childbirth such as confused thinking, delusions, hallucinations, and disorganized behavior” (Salkind, 1012). Because postpartum depression has the potential to last for a very long time, it may bring other side effects along with it. Along with the typical effects such as depression, anxiety, feeling like an inadequate mother, etc., long term postpartum depression could lead to serious issues such as psychiatric issues like hallucinations and suicide (Harris,
The small amount of a pesticide that is absorbed from a single exposure is rather insufficient to cause illness, but absorption of the same small amount every day continuously can cause serious chronic illness or even death. The effects of acute toxicity and chronic toxicity are dose-dependent; the greater the dose, the greater the effect. In characterizing the toxicity of a pesticide, it is evident that information is needed for the single-dose (acute) and the long-term (chronic) effects, including also information for exposure of intermediate duration. Delayed toxicity may occur many years after exposure to a
In the remaining cases, symptoms range from mild to severe. When symptoms occur, they usually begin gradually, about 1 to 3 weeks after the spore is breathed into the lungs. The most common symptoms include: • Cough. • Fever. • Shortness of breath.
Unit 2 Assignment: Diagnostic Writer’s Response Whether it is a little or a lot, everyone experiences stress at some point. Stress does not always have a negative effect, most of the time the effects can be positive. On the other hand stress is associated with the development of most major mental health problems such as depression, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and pathological aging (Marin, 2011). It has also been linked to all leading physical causes of death such as heart disease, cancer and stroke (Cohen, Janicki-Deverts, & Miller, 2007). There are many careers that are very stressful and one which regularly tops the list of most stressful careers is being an enlisted service member.
Absence seizures are seizures characterized by brief lapses of consciousness, usually lasting no more than ten seconds. Eye-blinking and twitching of the mouth may accompany these seizures.

We understand from the video, Art has been suffering with these symptoms for a lot longer then a month. The second disorder to rule out is F43.22 Adjustment Disorder with Anxiety. It is evident Art is experiencing anxiety due to a stress related disturbance, however the criteria does not fully match Art’s symptoms. Adjustment disorder states, marked distress that it out of proportion of the severity or intensity of the stressor (APA, 2013). I believe Art’s symptoms and stressors are in complete alignment with the traumatic event and are not out of proportion.
As a result of Holden having two extremes that are a component of his personality, he has bipolar II disorder. Throughout the novel, Holden presents signs of hypomania, because of his irritability towards others, while also speaking rapidly and having difficulty sleeping. When Holden has had minimal food to eat, has feelings of depression, and most notably when he has pondered death, is another extreme of his personality. There are numerous occasions that Holden experiences both emotions simultaneously. Since Holden encounters levels of depression and hypomania, bipolar II disorder is a more accurate diagnosis than depression.

It should be recognized that patients with mild traumatic brain injury can exhibit persistent emotional, cognitive, behavioral and physical symptoms, alone or in combination, which may produce a functional disability. These symptoms generally fall into one of the following categories and are additional evidence that a mild traumatic brain injury has occurred. A combination of the above-mentioned symptoms is most common. MTBI has an enormous adverse effect on balance, cognitive functioning, and symptoms in the first 24 hours post injury (Iverson, 2012). Symptoms are usually at their worst in the first 72 hours post injury and a gradual symptom recovery occurs over period of 7 to 30 days in majority of
We rarely talk about mental health and it is always the last thing people consider. There are people who discredit others with actual diseases by saying “oh your depression isn’t real you’re just sad and can’t handle it.” It’s people like that that begin the stigma against mental disorders.
