Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HCM

It is quite a common problem. Feeling inferior, low mood, stress, rejection sensitivity etc are common symptoms of this condition. But you should know that no one want to ignore you deliberately, you are also important to your family members. People don't laugh at you it is only inferiority complex which is causing such feelings in you. I will advise you to please talk to your family members and discuss your problem with them. They will definitely understand. Many medicines like Fluoxetine, Paroxetine, Venlafexine etc are very useful for such symptoms. And don't feel hopeless, just think about life in positive aspect. If you will harm yourself it will affect you and your family member. So please talk to them and visit a psychiatrist.

Psychiatrist Dr. Sundar Gnanavel's  Response
Thanks for your query. I understand your concern with the symptoms. Based on your history the possible differential diagnosis include :
1. Depressive disorder
2. Dysthymia (Milder chronic depression)
3. Anxious avoidant personality disorder
4. Adjustment disorder
I would suggest you meet a psychiatrist for a thorough evaluation so that a suitable antidepressant like SSRIs or psychotherapy techniques like cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) can be attempted. Wish you all the best.
