Dr. Manal Omar, professor of psychiatry at Ain Shams University, advised the artists, Donia and Amy Samir Ghanem, to quickly tell their mother, the star Dalal Abdel Aziz, of the death of her husband, the artist Samir Ghanem, and warned of the consequences of continuing to conceal the news, and confirmed that Dalal’s fear of sadness and depression is unjustified and scientific basis for it.
Omar added, during her interview on the “Cairo Talk” program, on the “Cairo and the People” screen, that psychiatry sees the importance of informing the sick person of the death of his relative at the same moment, even if he is in a state of fatigue or illness, and she cited the case of the late Samir Ghanem, saying: We must say: For Dalal Abdulaziz, her husband died,” explaining that the second surprise of someone’s departure some time ago increases fatigue, and makes the person feel betrayed by the situation.
And she continued, stressing that the constant remembrance of the death of a close person protects us from denial and depression, as it is necessary to emphasize the departure of the person close to you so that you do not suffer after a while, explaining that the culture of death is joyful for the Egyptians and they turn the memory into a celebration, and said that 50% of the depressed after the departure of the dear have Think not remembering to leave.
Dr. Hala Omar explained that the time of mourning and burial combines the expression of societal sadness, and that society must support people in a state of tragedy, and that the son’s tragedy because of his father’s death for more than two years makes him a victim of depression.
It is reported that Donia Samir Ghanem confirmed yesterday that her mother, Dalal Abdel Aziz, is still in the intensive care room and her condition has not improved, as some have promoted, and indicated that her health condition does not allow her to be informed of the death of her husband, Samir Ghanem.
