User :   I rubbed my penis head and shaft too hard
User :   and my penis looks very bad right now
User :   in bad shape
Doctor :   Ok

User :   all wrinkled and inflammed
User :   it looks pretty bad
Doctor :  
How many days has it been till date?
User :   around one year
User :   plus there was tremendous pain at that time
User :   to the point where I began to have suicidal thoughts
User :   because at that moment, I knew that masturbation is bad but I cannot control myself
User :   because I'm heavily addicted
User :   and whenever I tried to masturbate at that time, I damaged my penis even more
User :   see, before when I masturbated, I had minimal damage
User :   it was not so bad
Doctor :   Ok

Doctor :  
Now how is the condition
Doctor :  
has it improved in this yeadr
User :   the pain has subsided somewhat
Doctor :  
ok
User :   it is still there constantly
Doctor :  
healing shall take place
User :   but not as painful as before
User :   yes
Doctor :  
allow some time for the same
User :   but the scar it left will always be there
Doctor :  
and dont strain the organ
User :   because it looks pretty bad right now
Doctor :  
ok
User :   yes
User :   and I cannot accept the way it looks right now
Doctor :  
I would suggest you to take the opinion of our Urologist for the same
Doctor :  
and he shall be able to guide you
Doctor :  
like what could be done
User :   the big problem is that during the daytime I feel like I cannot accept what has happened
Doctor :   Yes, I can understand

User :   and I feel like there is no hope
Doctor :  
you need to control your emotions
Doctor :  
there is treatment available
User :   because I'm constantly fighting with myself
Doctor :  
Our Urologist Dr.Chandan Choudry shall be able to help you
Doctor :  
you should not loose hope on this
Doctor :  
and rather you need to require certain help to control your thoughts as well
User :   yes
User :   are there ways to control our thoughts and emotions?
Doctor :  
Both Psychiatric and Psychological help
Doctor :   Sure
User :   because especially during the daytime
User :   I feel hopeless
Doctor :  
there are many good medications available
User :   and have suicidal thoughts
Doctor :  
which can better you
Doctor :  
so dont worry about that
Doctor :  
You shall need to consult a Psychiatrist in person for that problem
Doctor :  
and you shall improve
Doctor :  
No second thoughts required
Doctor :  
Tell Yes
User :   because I would like to lead a normal life also
Doctor :   Sure

Doctor :  
You are not out of the race
User :   you know, have a job, get married
Doctor :  
and you can lead a normal life
User :   but I feel that right now, I cannot achieve these things...thus I have suicidal thoughts also
Doctor :  
I told you how to improve
User :   because right now, I am not suitable to work
Doctor :  
think in that line rather than hopelessness
Doctor :  
which is absolutely not required
Doctor :  
Are you getting it?
User :   do you know which medications are good?
Doctor :  
It is not right for me to tell the medication names without examining you
Doctor :  
they shall be available only on Prescription
User :   ok
Doctor :  
but there are many options
Doctor :  
so you should not worry too much on that
User :   I have taken Zoloft
Doctor :  
Yes, I know
Doctor :  
there are many alternatives to it
Doctor :  
as you have not found benefit with that
User :   or can you tell me what can I do whenever I have suicidal thoughts?
Doctor :  
Positive thinking
Doctor :  
firstly it has to be reduced
Doctor :  
so medications are a necessity in your case
Doctor :   till you start on it
Doctor :  
whenever you get a negative thought
Doctor :  
suppress it with a positive thought or an activity
User :   because tell you the truth, when I wake up in the morning I start to have suicidal thoughts
User :   and it continues to the afternoon and evening
Doctor :   Engage yourself in good activities
User :   I think it gets better in the late night
Doctor :  
and half the problems shall come down
Doctor :  
Consult the psychiatrist without delay
User :   you know, I have to fight with myself everyday on this
User :   and I'm very tired
Doctor :   ok

User :   I feel like I want to give up
User :   because I cannot imagine living like this for the rest of my life
User :   because of this, I cannot go to work
User :   and lead a normal life
User :   I wish so much that I can be just a normal person
User :   you know
User :   just go to work and come home in the evening
User :   just lead a simple and normal life
Doctor :   True

User :   yes because I have to fight with myself everyday, how can I go to work?
User :   and if I don't have a job, how can I get married?
User :   whenever I think that I cannot lead a normal life, I start to have suicidal thoughts also

Doctor :  
and you can improve
Doctor :  
think positively
Doctor :   Is there any thing else I can help you with?

User :   and I'm so afraid to go to sleep, because I know that the same routine will happen the next day
User :   I have to fight with myself
User :   again
User :   and having constant suicidal thoughtws
Doctor :   Dont worry
Doctor :  
Exercise well
User :   do you think that seeing a psychiatrist will help?
