Psychiatrist 's  Response

welcome to health care magic

Your symptoms are- excessive worry, worthlessness, sadness of mood, decreased sleep, suicidal thoughts, somatic symptoms of anxiety (stomach cramps). You probably are suffering from Major depressive disorder with anxiety.
Don't worry. Consult a psychiatrist for proper diagnosis and management. There are different treatments available (medication, psychotherapy, ECT etc). Try relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation or deep breathing).

Good Luck

Psychiatrist Dr. Jonas Sundarakumar's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms may be indicative of chronic depression (dysthymia). Your cutting / self-harming behaviour may also be indicative of emotional insability. I would advise you consult a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and further treatment. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome your problems.

Wish you all the best.
