From about 12 years of age I mostly like to be in my room. I don t like to go out, may be i afraid from getting disrespected or ignored by other, as i don t like this. Now I am living a life just equal to prisoner always in my room in-front of my notebook, in this way i have lost my company.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms could be indicative of a mood disorder. However, you need a detailed psychological assessment to make a definitive diagnosis. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and further treatment. then there are effective treatment options available - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help him overcome your problems.

Wish you all the best.
