Hi and thanks for the query,

Its already good that a diagnosis has actually been made. It very important for you to get a good medical consultation. I suggest booking an appointment with the psychiatrist, first, and probably a psychologist later.

It's important for you to develop a positive ideology and perspective towards life. Do not think you are worse than any body, or feel so bad, but its instead high time you realities and appreciate the reality of life.
There are always problems in one s life and it is therefore compelling for you to consider the daily life events AS normal, and part and parcel of life.

After consultation with your psychiatrist, following medical advice and being very compliant to your drugs are major guarantees to greatly improving your quality of life.

I strongly suggest you stay positive and feel well, as you book appointments and wait to see your psychiatrist and psychologist.

Thanks and hope this helps as I wish you the best of health.

Best regards,
Dr Luchuo, MD.
