Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Your depressive attitude could be due to anxiety. You should understand your anxiety well so as to manage it. Anxiety is part of your body's defense mechanism which never needs to be feared about. This understanding is the basis of anxiety treatment.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My husband suffers from severe anxiety and panic attacks. Whenever he hears about some bad things happening around like a death of a distant relative, illness etc he becomes very depressed and gets these panic attacks. He starts crying and screaming. Of late this behavior is repeating quite frequently and in public places also. Is there any permanent solution for this.
