Suggest treatment for depression - Online Doctor Chats
Please proceed with your query.
Hi...I was looking for some help from a Psychiatrist. And, its just my second time on this site. So, just wanted to check if I am chatting with a correct doctor..
I am a general physician
Specialists are not available on chat or call
But only on queries
If you wish to chat with a psychiatrist, you can post Ask A Specialist query
I can assist you within my expertise
So, what do you suggest I do? I can leave my queries for the specialist to get back..?
Ok, got it...
Still, since you are here, let me share my question, may be you can guide me right...
I was looking for help in dealing with my state of mind after a failed relationship. I haven't able to focus on anything since the incident and constantly feel low. My quality of life and ability to focus on anything have really gone down. Would you be able to help or guide with what I can possibly do next..?
I need to know your symptoms in detail
What other symptoms are you experiencing?
On a daily basis, past incidents flash across my mind. And, I have gone days together without sleep...
I am not able to forget my past. Even small tasks seem enormous to finish..
I even cry on occasions when it becomes hard to handle..
Is it impacting your daily work?
Yes, in a big way. I am not able to focus on anything. I easily get distracted. I was initially thinking that all of this will gradually become normal after a couple of months. But, its been almost an year now. And, am still not able to do anything about my condition
So, I want to address this before its too late..
Yes you need to address it and relax
So, what do you suggest I do next..?
You will definitely need a detailed consultation with psychiatrist in person
He may suggest antidepressant medicines
In the meantime, can I put together my thoughts and share on the site for a specialist to help..?
It is nothing but low energy
You need guided meditation
Some are available on youtube as well
Courses are also available
And, is it normal that people go through such feelings even after a year of an incident?
I feel that you have recurring thoughts
Yes, I do
People go through it
Meditation does help with recurring thoughts
I personally like art of living but you can chose for yourself
Alright, thanks doctor for your help. Ill seek help from a psychiatrist and check out meditation as an option too...Thanks!
