Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello
Welcome to health care magic
I can understand your situation. I appreciate your effort to seek online support.

You have probably "Compulsive masturbation" which comes under "Obsessive Compulsive Spectrum disorders". The other features described by you are due to associated depression. Don't worry and relax. Consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and management.
Following treatment strategies would be helpful-

1) Antidepressants like SSRIs (escitalopram, sertarline, paroxetine etc)
2) Antianxiety agents like clonazepam, lorazepam, alprazolam etc
3) Psychotherapy/ Counselling sessions
4) Relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation, deep breathing etc

Hope it helps
Good luck
Regards

Hello
Welcome to HCM

You are having symptoms like low eye sight, loss of memory, insomnia, weakness, depressive mood, suicidal thoughts etc. First of all I would like to tell you that these type of symptoms are not due to masturbation. Masturbation is a healthy practice and its normal. But excessive masturbation may lead to poor attention in work and individual is not able to devote proper time to his work for masturbation. This thing lead to impaired concentration. Other reason of your symptoms is Depressive Disorder. In depressive disorder loss of memory, sleeplessness, weakness, depressed mood, suicidal ideation are seen. I would strongly advise you to please visit a good Psychiatrist and share your concern with him. Many good medicines are available for proper treatment for such type of symptoms.

Thanks
