Dear Carol: My dad suffered a heart attack 10 years ago, not long after my mother’s death from cancer. He responded well to surgery. Dad then quit smoking and became a rigorous exerciser, but now he’s been diagnosed with diabetes and early stage Alzheimer’s. Since the double diagnosis he’s been depressed and has quit exercising. The doctor has tried two different antidepressants but they haven’t helped.
