John Fetterman to spend ‘weeks’ in hospital over depression: aide

It’s been hard for staffers to tell whether the 53-year-old Pennsylvania Democrat has been unresponsive in recent weeks due to hearing loss from the stroke he suffered in May — or because he’s in the throes of despair, the aide told NBC.

“[He’s] not hearing you or is he sort of crippled by his depression and social anxiety,” said the aide— adding that staffers were surprised by the severity of his depression.

The potential weeks-long mental health treatment won’t impact Fetterman’s ability to do his job in the future and his resignation is “not even on the table in any sense,” the aide insisted.
That's just phucking great.

On the Campaign Trail, John Fetterman Cited Doctors' Notes Attesting to His Vitality. Now He Says He Was Told to Get More Rest.

Fast forward to his first six weeks in office, and Fetterman is painting a starkly different account of the medical advice he received on the campaign trail. After Fetterman was hospitalized for lightheadedness earlier this month, the New York Times reported that the freshman senator believes "he may have set himself back permanently by not taking the recommended amount of rest during the campaign" after his stroke.

Now, Fetterman is laid up in Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, receiving treatment for "severe" clinical depression—his second hospital stay during his six weeks in office. The contrasting and contradictory statements raise questions about what medical advice the stroke survivor actually received, and whether he was candid about it with voters—or whether he or his advisers shaded the truth in order win one of the most competitive Senate races in the country.

Fetterman’s office did not respond to a request for comment.

On May 13, Fetterman suffered an ischemic stroke, the result of a blood clot blocking the flow of nutrients and oxygen to the brain. Stroke victims can suffer permanent brain damage and, like Fetterman, have trouble processing sound.

According to the CDC, it can take "years" to recover from strokes, and some patients may never fully heal. Johns Hopkins Medicine suggests stroke victims spend the first three months after the stroke focusing on recovery and developing "compensation strategies to work around a functional impairment," like "learning to hold a toothpaste tube so the strong hand can unscrew the cap."

That ought to help him with his depression.
Nothing like having your wife leaving you alone in a strange town in a strange hospital meant for the Military. True love Zip lining across Niagara falls while the old man is lying in a hospital bed.

And understand I don't hold it against her, but it is certainly something my wife wouldn't do.
Then again maybe his wife is the cause of his depression and the Doctors told her to go away. Makes sense.
