Diagnosed with depression and on medication. Possible social anxiety?

I am very depressed and do not know who to turn to for help. I was recently diagnosed with depression and prescribed drugs which helped hugely. after taking these for 9 months I gradually came off them and after that became gradually more down until I don't know where to turn. Have lost my friends and family. Think I may suffer from a severe form of social anxiety. Help.

Hello ,

I have studied your case.

you should continue your anti depression drugs

you need to take some extra efforts to get out of these symptoms

you need to start this
start daily morning walk
do daily morning exercises , streches,rope skipping,sun salutation,
do some yoga [if you know ,or learn them]and pranayama

join some group, club activity
If you do ART OF LIVING - part 1 course it will definately help you to over come your state of mind

eat fresh fruits and vegetables

learn some creativity [join piano,guitar class,dance learning,painting,any sports]

hope you have recovery soon

Take care.
