Stress or something else ?

For a while now I have been feeling constantly tired and often cannot be bothered to do anything. I always want to sleep and find it difficult to get up in the morning. I also have gone from being very ambitious and self confident to having low self esteem and giving up on things that used to be important to me. I ve even started tripping over words but its not exactly a stutter. I am more irritable and snap at people which is unusual as I always used to be very in control of my emotions. Sometimes I get urges to just start crying for no reason and I get suddenly tense and anxious about small things before realising nothings wrong. My general low mood comes and goes, sometimes I forget about it for a while but then it comes back. Its sometimes worse than other times, at worst it makes me want to be by myself completely and think, cry or sleep. I think this all started to happen about September/October last year but got gradually worse. It almost went away for a couple of weeks recently but in the past week its coming back. I m not sure whether I m just stressed and making a fuss about nothing or whether this is something to worry about. It isn t constant so im half convinced i m just being silly and overreacting.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
You seem to be suffering from moderate level of depression. If all these problems are hampering your social and occupational life, you need to consult a psychiatrist immediately for detailed evaluation.

Hi Dear
I feel you need a break. Just for a day or for sometime , do what you like ...... be in peace with your soul....... Do some relaxation exercises.
Its not necessary to get up early at 4 AM everyday to meditate. Its your wish. You are a free bird. You can relaxe yourself whenever you feel like in a day , whenever you tend to reach a threshold of tolerance.
You can learn Relaxation Exercises by a trained Psychologist or at different sites.
Dont do anything in a hurry.
be slow and calm in your daily approach.
For medication or any sort of support i am always there for you.
Feel free to contact at my email
Good Luck
Enjoy Life!!!!!
