Sen. John Fetterman left Walter Reed National Military Medical Hospital on Friday after being treated there for clinical depression from the middle of February.
According to a statement from Fetterman’s spokesman Joe Calvello, the Democratic senator is returned to Braddock, Pennsylvania,” for the following 2 weeks,” to enjoy moments with his family and supporters. When the Senate comes into force on April 17, he wants to travel back to Washington, D.C.
After returning home, Fetterman stated, “I am very delighted.” “I’m thrilled to be the senator Pennsylvania needs, as well as the parent and husband I would like to be,” he said.
In his remarks, Fetterman also thanked the staff at Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
“The excellent Walter Reed staff has my sincere gratitude. “The attention they gave me transformed my life,” stated Fetterman. “I’ll have additional things to talk about this later, but at this point I just need people to understand that depression treatment is effective and that it is curable. Politics have no impact on this because depressed individuals may be found in both blue and red areas at the moment. Kindly get support if you want it.
According to a news statement from Fetterman’s office, the senator was receiving treatment at Walter Reed for “severe depression” from a group under the direction of David Williamson, chief of neuropsychiatry.
Williamson claimed that Fetterman’s anxiety is currently in recovery in a press statement.
On February 15, Fetterman officially entered a hospital for treatment.
