UPDATED DATA ON THE HEARINGS: Addressing high rates of suicide among seniors.

Unless one has personally gone through it, it may be hard to really understand the deep hurt and depression that can exist in living in an unhappy/unfaithful marriage.

Other causes of serious marital problems with like consequence may exclude infidelity, such as physical and mental abuses and violence that create pain, tension, joylessness in a dead, dire situation that dominates ones existence.

As to infidelity, some partners try to cope by becoming unfaithful the same as their spouses, disregarding the potential for big problems down the road and later in life. Some accept the behavior and become enablers for their spouses to involve others in adultery, figuring the 'marriage' will remain intact while the infidelity goes on.

And some cannot follow down into that abyss, but rather, victimized, suffer feelings of a crushing, life threatening loss, cheated out of the ideal and the oath, that leads to hopelessness, depression and sometimes further to psychosis.

This exercise in iniquity of marital infidelity, robs basic life of its substance like any other, but because of the sensitivity of this particular transgression and its relative destruction of the foundation of family life, it warrants a thorough analysis and understanding of the serious consequences that often occur, and that relate to many other societal ills, including  problems in the elderly.

An unfaithful marriage is a no substance relationship that obliterates true love as it depletes the spirit, mind and bodies of both spouses and the children, regardless of who is doing the cheating; and is a root destroyer, a cancer to the family.

It inhibits, presently and in later life, the pair's ability to happily enjoy the rewards of trust and faithfulness, in a loving, truly caring relationship with one's soul mate, for forever; and for strength together for the hardships of aging that naturally come.

July 28, 2003  "Depression is a medical illness, it is also a disease of the mind and spirit as well as the brain. Depression is also treatable, about 50% get better, but there is more research needed. We need to move on, we should be talking about what else we can do - the test for depression is conversation, a low tech but effective diagnosis....."  Dr. Ira Katz, Geriatrics-Penn U Med. School.

"Living Without Substance In Depression"

No one should have to endure such a hard and empty existence. Every effort should be truthfully made to straighten out the situation through controlled conversation for understanding, forgiveness and repentance to one another, and change; with diligent prayer to ask GOD for His Help. And if more understanding is needed, good, competent counseling that is cognizant of the truth of the devastating results of abuse and transgression on couples and children in married life, can further help.
.

II Chronicles 30:9
For if you turn again to The LORD,
your brethren and your children shall find compassion before them that lead them captive,
so that they shall come again into this land:

Try....and remember those first days of love and courtship, and preserve them, hold on to them like they are pure gold, precious. Return to that sweetness, honor it and it will be a lifestay of real happinesss above all worldliness that one might desire above it.

for the LORD your GOD IS Gracious and Merciful, and will not turn away His Face from you, if you return to Him.

Luke 11:4
And Forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. ...

... And Lead us not into temptation; but Deliver us from Evil.

No authority should assume to deny the right to a person's true well being, and if all else patiently fails in the hard cases, to a person's right to separate, or to dissolve a destructive marriage. It is vital and personal and when it is addressed responsibly and truthfully with regard to one's well being, it is a necessary and individual right of choice. Saving lives ravaged by depression and psychosis should be every responsible authority's priority. We are encouraged by our LORD to discern in Righteousness and not just blindly and slow of heart to accept obviously unrighteous actions.

John 7:24
Judge not according to the appearance, but judge Righteous Judgment.

No one should ever be made to feel trapped in what has become an irreversible, tortured relationship because of piety and a sense of duty in this regard. Torture and the destruction of lives is the work of Evil, and certainly not that of our Good, Caring FATHER GOD.

Would your very own, loving and caring  father, if you have one, want you to be subjected in this manner? Of course not. Then how can we assume that our Loving and Caring Heavenly FATHER would condone our continued suffering?

And so the choice to abuses and infidelity carry a heavy weight on the institution of marriage, and reflect with grandiosity on the ills of society.

Fatherless or motherless children, with a parent that carries the whole burden in this unnatural raising of children, are up in the statistics of prisoners jailed for all sorts of criminal activity. Usually devastated by the break up, especially younger children, they often take a very long time to fully recover, if ever, with resulting problems into maturing adulthood and their ability to properly nurture their own relationships.

This is old news, even remembering the Million Man Marches of the Nineteen Nineties, that stressed the need and rewards of responsible married, family life; and should be again revisited and supported.

"The Easier Road And The Best Revenge"

Both men and women should discernedly, fully realize that GOD's Stated Righteousness in a loving, heterosexual, monogamous marriage, if they find that complying someone, is their best chance for a happy, caring, sharing, giving, and rewarding life into their elderly retirement and Thereafter. So many young people today, downheartedly say that they are dismayed at the slipped morals and attitudes and that they cannot find that suitable someone for a decent marriage.

Malachi 3:18
Then shall you return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked,
between him that serves GOD and him that serves Him not.

Unmarried people also can do well, and with less responsibility; some opt to serve The LORD exclusively, and in that, garner great strength and joy.

Fidelity and caring are the glue that holds together a marriage and the strengths by which the problems of life that naturally occur can be together, best overcome.

These strengths are fortified by the Blessings of GOD for a Sacred Union that is honored as such.

We all know that life can still be tough, no matter what we try and do; but living well is the best revenge, and by far, the easier road.

Matthew 13:43
Then shall the Righteous shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their FATHER.
Who has ears to hear, let him hear.

My prayer is for all, to enjoy life to its fullest,
and through Truth of our Loving GOD, and understanding, we have the very best try at it.

GOD Love you and yours,

In The Name of our Loving and Merciful, Caring FATHER,

Amen.

Gerry M. Kaye.

"THE U.S. SENATE HEARING ON DEPRESSION IN SENIORS"
 July 28, 2003
Special  Report:

Currently there are important Senate hearings taking place that address aging, depression and suicide in seniors, that should interest all of us:

MONDAY'S HEARING TO EXAMINE DEPRESSION AND SUICIDE IN THE ELDERLY
The suicide rate in senior citizens is four times the national average

(Washington, DC) - U.S. Senator Larry Craig announced today that his committee will hold a hearing titled “Senior Depression: Life-Saving Mental Health Treatments for Older Americans” on Monday, July 28, in room 628 of the Dirksen Senate Office Building. It will begin at 2 p.m. An audiocast of the hearing may also be available on-line at http://www.capitolhearings.org

July 28, 2003  "Depression is a medical illness, it is also a disease of the mind and spirit as well as the brain. Depression is also treatable, about 50% get better, but there is more research needed. We need to move on, we should be talking about what else we can do - the test for depression is conversation, a low tech but effective diagnosis..." - Dr. Ira Katz, MD, Geriatrics-Penn U Med. School - (C-Span) 7/28/03, Questions & Answers.

Dr. Ira Katz, MD, Director, Geriatric Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and Director, Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Center, Philadelphia VA Medical Center – He discussed what has happened since he testified 7 years ago before the Senate Aging Committee and his research and role in the “Prospect Study.” Geriatrics-Penn U Med. School - Testified at Monday's Senate Hearing.

Senator Craig Encourages Seniors- Especially Men To Get  Treatment For Depression.
Men are four times more likely to commit suicide than women.

Sen. Elizabeth Dole expressed her deep concerns about seniors and depression.

(Washington, DC) - U.S. Senator Larry Craig, Chairman of the U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging stepped forward today to encourage seniors – especially men – to talk to their doctors about depression, and he also shared a warning to the doctors that see older patients.

“Oftentimes depression can be mistaken for physical illness because the symptoms are thought to be age related. For example, sleep problems and lower energy levels are a good indication of depression and are not just the side effects of getting older as commonly believed. If you're experiencing those symptoms, you should see your doctor,” said Sen. Craig at a Special Committee on Aging hearing on senior citizens and depression. “With the new medications now available, depression can be treated and suicides prevented. Seniors who need help coping with life should see their doctors.”

But according to some studies, 70 percent of elderly suicide victims met with their doctors within one month of their suicide – and were not treated or referred to treatment for depression.

“Doctors need to really focus on their patients. With seniors doctors are dealing with a generation of people raised to avoid talking about their feelings or their troubles. It is critically important that doctors ensure that seniors are screened for depression and get the medication and counseling that they need – especially men,” Craig said.

Researchers have found that depression affects twice as many women as men. But those findings under some question since new findings reveal that women and men may talk differently – or in the case of men, not talk – about the issues they face. And with men – not talking counts. Men are four times more likely to commit suicide than women. To help stop that trend in men, this past April the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) launched a public awareness campaign about depression in men called “Real Men. Real Depression.”

According to the National Institute, instead of acknowledging their feelings, asking for help, or seeking appropriate treatment, men with depression may be more likely to turn to alcohol or drugs, or to become frustrated, discouraged, angry or irritable. Some men may throw themselves compulsively into their work or hobbies, attempting to hide their depression from themselves, family, and friends; other men may respond to depression by engaging in reckless behavior.

“Studies indicate that 85 percent of people who died of suicide told someone what they were going to do starting two months before the act. If someone says something to you about wanting to take their life, take them seriously,” Craig warned, noting that while older Americans are 13 percent of the national population, they commit 18 percent of the suicides. In Idaho, 23 percent of all suicides are committed by senior citizens.

July 24th, 2003
Senior citizens have the highest suicide rate of all age groups in the United States – four times the national average. According to some sources, 75 percent of elderly suicide victims met with their doctors within one month of their suicide – and were not treated or referred to treatment for depression. By 2010 it is estimated that 50 percent of all doctor office visits in the U.S. will be made by those over the age of 65.

“Depression and suicide are preventable. Seniors who need help coping with life should see their doctors and it is critically important that doctors ensure that senior citizens are getting the medication and counseling that they need. Hopefully Tuesday’s hearing will encourage both to happen,” said Sen. Craig.
