thanks for using health care magic.
I have gone trhough your available history.
You should consult a qualified psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and for proper management.
Doctor may start, Antidepressant drugs like fluoxetine or sertraline or escitalopram.
In extreme cases of depression with suicidal behavior, Electroconvulsive therapy is very useful for speedy recovery.
Meanwhile you cans start doing stress management with relaxation techniques like yoga , meditation, self motivation.
I hope you will come out of this soon.

Welcome to Health Care Magic

You have feelings go guilt as you are thinking that you have hurt your friends. You are loosing friends. You have stress and depressed mood. You are not able to tolerate sorrows. All these are the symptoms of depressive disorder. As it is in earlier state I would advise you to please visit a good Psychiatrist for expert evaluation. You have ideas of suicide so talk with your psychiatrist regarding your intent of self harm. Medicines like Fluoxetine, Paroxetine, Sertaline etc are newer antidepressants and have good effect. Non medicinal treatment like Cognitive Behavior Therapy is also useful. So visit a Psychiatrist ASAP.

Psychiatrist Dr. Sundar Gnanavel's  Response
Thanks for your query. I understand your preoccupation with the symptoms. I would suggest you undergo a thorough psychiatric evaluation. You would need to be screened for both depressive disorder as well as personality disorder. The treatment would consist of:
1. Antidepressant medication like SSRIs
2. Psychotherapy techniques like CBT/Cognitive behavioural therapy
3. Supportive counselling
Suicidal tendency is an emergency and you might require inpatient hospitalisation for a short while for this reason. Yoga, meditation and breathing relaxation exercises are likely to be beneficial in your case. Wish you early recovery.
