Suffering from stress and depression. Looking for suggestion

hi doctor, i have been under sever post marital stress , essentially because of 2 families not getting aligned. More so because my wife refuses to understand or even discuss these. I have because of this physically injured myself on various occasions, which brings temporary relief. Even thoughts like suicide comes to my mind, but because I understand the plight it may leave on the people left behind, refrain myself from doing anything stupid. Please suggest what to do?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello Mr Rishi......
Thanks for your query. I understand the difficulty you are going through. I would suggest you to contact a psychological counsellor skilled in marital counselling/ family therapy to try and bridge the differences as the family at present seems to be dysfunctional. Interpersonal psychotherapy focusing on role transition or disputes needs to be attempted. There is a possibility of the current adjustment disorder progressing to full blown depressive disorder and hence i would suggest you try the above measures as early as possible.
