Doctor:Oh
Doctor:what happened?
Doctor:and how can I help you?
User:I had invested in shares and all the money is lost there. Nobody can help me to get back that money. But mental pressure I can not handle now
Doctor:Hmmm
Doctor:I understand your problem
User:I am not able to sleep properly. Only some 2 hrs per day
Doctor:Ok
User:But I am not taking any medicine as of now.
Doctor:why don't you consult a counselor
User:food intake reduced drastically.
Doctor:talking to a counselor will help
User:face to face?
Doctor:Yes
Doctor:face to face is far better than online
Doctor:and if needed they will prescribe you some medicines as well
User:yes. but before going face to face I thought let me check online first
Doctor:ok
User:anyway thanks. let me schedule a meeting with counselor.
Doctor:You are welcome
Doctor:try to relax
Doctor:and focus your energies on how to earn money now
Doctor:start forgetting your losses
Doctor:things happen at times
Doctor:everything is not under control
User:That I am doing.from morning to evening no problem. but from evening till next day morning I feel stressed.
Doctor:I can understand
Doctor:when you don't have any work, then all your thoughts will go back to this
User:yes. I dont have any work related pressure
Doctor:Please talk to a counselor face to face
Doctor:I am sure that will help
User:investing in share started from there only
Doctor:hmmmm
User:sure. I will.
User:thanks for your help
Doctor:and if you want to invest in share market, it is better to go with long term ones like LIC or Microsoft etc
Doctor:short trading is bound to go up and down
User:I dont have any money to invest at least for next 4 5 months
Doctor:and don't always put everything you have on one thing
Doctor:then don't invest for next 1 year
Doctor:get yourself back in shape
User:ok.
Doctor:is there anything else I can help you with?
User:But I am worried about one thing. My family does not know about this. If they come to know I don't know how they will react.
Doctor:You have two options
Doctor:you can tell them yourself
Doctor:and face the reactions
Doctor:in my opinion, truth will always be better
Doctor:speaking with your family members will definitely reduce your stress and anxiety
User:I myself not in a good condition. If their condition is also down after listening to this then situation may go bad for me.
Doctor:the choice is up to you
Doctor:if they need to know the situation then you should tell them
Doctor:if they need not know it and if you can manage without their help then you can choose not to disclose this till everything is sorted out.
User:I can not tell this right now. I can hide the fact like I have invested in ling term. It will take time to get the return.
Doctor:It is up to you
Doctor:you can tell them whatever feels appropriate
Doctor:only thing is, you should stop worrying too much
Doctor:genuine mistakes do happen some times
Doctor:you know that you can earn yourself decent salary, then it is only a matter of time till you are back in good fnianciak condition
User:it was worst mistake that happened to me. I had trusted the broker to keep that share even when it was going down. And He had given me nice returns previously.
Doctor:ok
User:out of my 4 lacs investment I got back only 40 k
Doctor:now you have acknowledged that. it will be easier from now to deal with the problem
User:hmmm. let's see. Talking to you itself giving me relaxation.
User:I normally wait for sometime before I react. But in this case I am waiting for last for days. Situation improved a bit. last night I was able to be in bed full time though not sleeping full time. previous nights I was walking in terraces even in 16 temperature I did not feel the cold.
Doctor:Hmmm
Doctor:Please talk to the couselor
User:my normal blood pressure is low compared to other persons. and it went below that. My general physician told me I am lucky that it did not go high. But He did not know my situation as he may tell to my family members
Doctor:I am sure that will make things better
Doctor:ok
Doctor:is there anything else I can help you with?
User:It was nice talking to you Dr. XXXXXXX I will wait for another 2 days as I feel it is improving. talking to you also helped me to relax. What I could not share with family I have shared with you. That released some pressure
Doctor:Ok
Doctor:have a good day ahead
Doctor:take care
Doctor:bye
User:sure. thanks for your help. bye
