Psychiatrist Dr. J. Clive Spiegel's  Response
You may be suffering from major depressive disorder which is debilitating, but treatable. People with this disorder typically have recurrent episodes of depressed mood that last two weeks or more at a time. These low mood episodes are generally accompanied by changes in sleep, appetite, poor concentration, low energy, hopelessness, helplessness, lack of interest or pleasure in things, and even suicidal thoughts. Treatment begins with consulting a trusted psychiatrist who can establish the diagnosis and suggest therapy, medication management, or both. There is hope out there for you, so don't give up. Feel better! Best of luck and health to you.
