Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for your query. I can understand the concern with your symptoms. Most of the symptoms you report of point towards an underlying depressive disorder with an overlay of anxiety symptoms. I would suggest you undergo a thorough psychiatric evaluation for an underlying anxiety or depressive disorder. Effective antidepressant/anti-anxiety medication are available in addition to psychotherapy (eg. cognitive behavioural therapy) for management of your condition. Adjunctive sedatives can also be prescribed for your sleep difficulty. Hope you found the information useful.

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

I understand that you may be going through a difficult period with your mood and stress-related issues. It is possible that you could be suffering from a depression. Low mood, irritability, forgetfulness, tiredness / fatigue and poor sleep are all symptoms indicative of depression.

Since these symptoms have been causing you a lot of distress and dysfunction, I would suggest that you consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome these depressive symptoms. In addition you also seem to be having issues with regards to stress management and handling relationships. Psychological therapies can also address this issue and help you acquire stress management techniques and good coping skills.

Wish you all the best.
