Difficulty sleeping at night, good sleep during day, moody, unhappy, get angry at people, negative emotions, like to be alone. Cause?

I have a weird sleeping pattern. At night, when I try to sleep, I can t. And sometimes, I just sleep all day. Also, I ve been kinda withdrawn to the world. I think no one can understand me. I get angry at people. I don t listen to what people says. I get really upset and cry. And the major thing is, I don t feel happy at all. At times that I should be happy, I find myself feeling nothing at all. It s like all I feel is negative emotions . I hate explaining things to people. I prefer to be alone. Is this some kind of mental problem?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your question...

The symptoms which you have described, i.e. feeling low, inability to experience pleasure, negative thoughts, social withdrawal, irritability, crying spells, poor sleep, etc. are indicative of depression.

You have to clarify how long you have been experiencing these symptoms and whether you are going through any major stress. Whatever may be the cause, it is important that you get help because you seem to be going through significant distress and suffering. But often, when we feel so low and disinterested, we don't feel like seeking help and everything simply seems pointless. So, it is important be cautious of this and not refrain from getting help. One good way out is to keep talking and sharing your feelings with someone close, so that they would be able to motivate and guide you when you don't feel the initiative.

Help is available in different ways... Medication, Psychological therapies like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), etc. which can be decided according to your preference and the suitability for your situation. So, please consult a Psychiatrist and don't delay in seeking help.

All the best.
