Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THF LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, September 30, 1971 Estrogen often helps Depression pattern in women over 40 By FRIEDA KAYE NEW YORK (MW) We may think that having "the blues" or being depressed is simple, but il can be quite complicated, according to one psychiatrist. She is Dr. Rose Spiegel, who declares lhat de- pression can range from a passing mood that's part ot the wear-and-lear of everyday liv- ing to a condition so intense that it puts the individual out o[ commission. The psychiatrist is I longer young. on the faculty of the William Alanson White Institute here. "Depression can be experi- enced from one end of lite to the Dr. Spiegel as- serts, noting that some periods arc more critical than others. Adolescence, she indicates, is one such "vulnerable" period; the menopause is another. Many women, she notes, feel "devalued" or depressed at the menopause because they're no "The pressure on youthful- Another factor contributing to ness in our Dr. Spic- a woman's depression at meno- maintains, such I Hal!

This, she says, ''is pusliing things lo the point of caricature, with some very unfortunate results."

A project of the Nova Scotia research committee of the Col- lege of Family Physicians of Canada, it requires a system of scoring the expectant mother on a one to 10 scale as to po- tential risks to her unborn functions, too short an interval between pregnancies, and a generally poor obstetrical his- tory. Nova Scotia's 375 obstetri- cians will be asked to score their maternity patients during the pre-n a t a 1 period and pro- ride a brief summary of the outcome. The information will be recorded on forms designed for the optical scanner com- puter. iv ma RUMMAGE SALE SPONSORED BY THE DR. F. H. MEWBURN O. B. E. CHAPTER, I.OD.E. SATURDAY, OCT. 2nd at 9 a.m. BOXING ROOM CIVIC CENTRE The project two imme- diate objectives. IDENTIFY RISK First, the physicians hope to determine the incidence of high risk pregnancies in the province; and they hope to dis- cover whether the identification of "risk to the fetus" through the new scoring system will re- sult in a lowering in the pre- natal mortality rate. "While the project is aimed at cutting down the death rate of babies previous lo, during and just after birth, a vitally important spin off effect also could be a reduction in the number of children suffering from learning disabilities." says project co-ordinator Dr. Mi- chael Hebb of neighboring Dartmouth. Dr. fain MacPherson of Hali- fax, research committee chair- man, notes lhat obstetrical haz- ards may account for upwards of 20 per cent of the mentally defective children bom in Nova Scotia each year. As death and brain damage in the fetus and newborn are due to related factors, he hopes that a decrease in prenatal mortality would be accompa- i nied by a decrease in brain damage, associated mental re- tardation and learning disabili- ties, CHANGE FROM NORM Dr. MacPherson also points out that because specific risk areas would be identified it could be possible when the child is older lo determine the correlation of IQ with obstetri- cal risks during the mother's pregnancy. Both doctors feel the findings will have national significance. Dr. MacPherson notes that a "change from the norm" is that the study is being carried out by Nova Scotia p h y s i cians themselves. the results of sur- veys and research projects are imposed on the individual physician without him being asked to make any practical he says. The first data from the study is -xpected to become available i' July. 1972. .sto. s Hie woman's earlier ''sense of energy and drive." Depression can be coped with in various ways, the psychia- trist indicates. Alost people, she says, "do get hold of life." They may have an inner sense of depression, yet function "well enough" as far as the outer world is concerned. Much, she maintains, de- pends on the individual's per- sonality. Certain people, she ob- serves, translate Iheir depres- sions into creative or philan- thropic works. Kome try to tight off the depressive ten- dency. Others readily give in lo it. Some would rather not cope at all. Many, in their efforts not to experience the depres sion, unconsciously mask it with actual physical complaints, for which they then seek medical treatment. This, says Dr. Spie- gel, does not represent a real solution, since the individual is concentrating on the symptoms and not the problems that pre- cipita the depression in the first place. GOING FOR HELP Most feelings of dejection, ac- cording to the psychiatrist, nor- mally pass within a few days. However, if the depression is "persistent, unchanging and this can repre- sent something far more se- rious. "If it involves a persis- tent sense of hopelessness, in- adequacy and low Dr. Spiegel declares, "this can be an indication that help of a more professional kind is need- ed." Under such circum- stances, Dr. Spiegel soys. "I think there should be room in one's view of life for accepting the idea lhat it's perfectly nor- mal to seek help from others." There should be no stigma at- ached to getting psychiatric as- sistance, she adds, because "one should not always be ex- pected to cope with every- thing."

And if your family is Uiat typi- cal fuss buclgety lot who likes all their dishes first hand anil can spot yesterday's roast two paces from the back door, the only answer is to psych them out. Ours is a family of notes. Notes for where you are when you aren't home; notes for telephone mes- sages when others aren't home; and a note to say 'I love you' when you can't get home at all. A note is a gentler way of reminding someone that they didn't take out the garbage or that his or her room looks like a leftover from the Crimean War. You save a lot of extra talking with a note be- cause once you get into the go round of bawling someone out, and his or her inevitable round of ex- cuses, you can use up 15 minutes, your last, reserve of energy, and leave everyone within hearing distance cross and irritable. You don't have to address the note to anyone when you want the whole family to read it. Out ot curiosity, (that's polite for they will, anyway, no matter whose name is on it. You only put a name on a note for a special person so that when the library threatens foreclosure of book privileges after the third call for Twaddle and the Three Twits, the recalcitrant borrower can't'say "I didn't know it was for Just tack the note up in a conspicuous place.

But back to the leftovers. A note will ease you over that leftover hurdle. Here's how: "For your dining enjoyment tins evening, the fa- mous Anderson kitchen (famous to the Andersons) is presenting a varied array of culinary delights to stimulate your tastebuds into ecstacy.

A bowl of cold stewed tomatoes is left from the macaroni casserole which only needed one cup, and a dish of cold mashed potaloes sit together in the fridge, and many a thrifty soul would make a deli- cious casserole out of it all, and I could too before I threw it all out. Under the note system, .however, the family is being offered "sizzling hot dogs with mustard, relishes, tangy stewed tomatoes, and golden fried potatoes." It isn't necessary to mention that there's only enough for one of everything, remember it's the psch job that counts, not detailed information. "Assorted fruits, cheeses and crackers" lakes care of dessert and includes two apples, one pear which has seen sunnier days, a lonely bunch of green grapes, six and a half Dad's cookies and one piece of applesauce raisin cake which you know is going to have a duel fought over, no matter what. It's just pot-luck, and with any luck you'll have all the pots cleaned out. If it doesn't work, you can choose between the drive-in and the delicatessen.

The U.S. government is straining to keep up. The impact of mass produc- tion on food inspection pro- grams was illustrated in July when botulism toxin was dis- covered in vichyssoise canned by Bon Vivant of Newark, N.J. Because one cooking vessel in this relatively small plant accidentally operated 10 degrees below the proper tem- wrature for 10 days, one man lied, his wife was sickened and federal officials hat' to track down a million cans of food bearing 30 different labels. Problems arising from tech- nological developments on the processors' lines have been matched by new techniques down on the farm which have ushered in a new array of in- visible but dangerous contami- nants: DDT, hormones, tnu- biolics, mercury, lead. Housewives could once detect spoilage for themselves. Now preservatives and coloring can mask odor and color. Detecting invisible, tasteless contami- nants "is something govern- ment has to do for consumers because they cannot do it them- said an FDA consumer specialist. It is a monumental problem. The nation's food industry runs up retail sales of billion a year. Guarding against dangerous reri meat and poultry alone re- quires U.S. Agriculture depart- ment inspectors to cover plants. The program, univer- sally regarded as the strongest of any, has veterinarians and inspectors to look over ani- mals before, during and after slaughter, then check the meat again as it's cut up or put into processed food. The commerce department is responsible for fish and has 60 inspectors checking 40 process- ing plants. JACKPOT BINGO This Thursday Evening, September 30th STARTS P.M.
