Welcome to HCM

You have not specified the cause of your depression, however I will try to help you. As narrated by you, you have performed quite well in your past both in the academic and social field. This reflects that you are an achiever and also a successful and happy person.

1. Many times changes in life relations, financial changes, changes in love life, health problems and more may suddenly weaken us, you need to adapt and accept the changes slowly but steadily.
2. You should learn to love yourself, life is a gift to you given by God, you should honour God and take much care of yourself. Anyone may treat you in their way, reject you. But you should never neglect or deject yourself.
3. Learn to highlight your qualities, skills, good nature and enjoy life.
4. Try to change your lifestyle, hairstyle, stay active, watch movies, pamper yourself, exercise, eat well.
5. Yoga, meditation will help you get relaxed and make you stress free.
6. Healthy home made food, rich in minerals, protein balanced with fruits, berries, fresh veggies, fish will lighten up your burden. They contain natural mood elevators and anti-oxidants.
7. If you want you can consult a counselor, doctors, but do not make a habit to take anti-depression medications.
8. Avoid smoking, alcohol, caffeine and any other addition.

Take care.

Thanks for your query. The symptoms you are describing point towards major depressive disorder. I am able to understand the multiple stressors you are undergoing currently. I would suggest you undergo a psychiatric evaluation for depress ion. Effective anti depressants and psychotherapy techniques like cognitive behavioural therapy are available. Wish you speedy recovery.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

I understand that you have been going through a very difficult time of late. A sudden loss of confidence or self-esteem, feeling dejected, social withdrawal, forgetfulness, etc. could be indicative of a depression. However, a detailed history and psychological evaluation is needed to arrive at a diagnosis.

It is a good thing that you have been able to understand your problems and have sought help. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and treatment.

Wish you all the best.
