How can severe depression be managed?

.. I have battled depression all my life, I don t dwell on the bad childhood I lived. I have always been strong minded and felt with anything alone. But lately I have such bad depression and don t know how to deal with it. I m not self destructive type. But I m filled with such anger and rage, and I can t get any help. Live with pain everyday I wouldn t wish on anybody. I m worried I m getting to a breaking point and will snap. Never hurt anybody innocent. Can t say the same for woman, child, and animal abusers. I despise them and think about how bad I want to hurt one as much as they hurt others and let them suffer like I do. All I ever done is help people and been shit on so much. Here I sit alone in the world.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Depression is caused due to deficiency of neurotransmitter in our brain. When at young age you faced such situation you were able to fight because of sufficient production of neurotransmitter in brain; but now that capacity is affected. To overcome it you need medication which will suffice the amount needed for your body. Once you are in right frame of mind these thoughts will stop bothering you. Consult nearby neuropsychiatric center for help. Make sure you are not alone try to be with someone close to you, share your thoughts, sleep for adequate time, have healthy meals on time, involve in activities you used to enjoy earlier.

Hope I have answered your query.

I am having severe mental problem where i can not concentrare on anything. I am a civil engineer working as a professional in a private firm. I am married and have one child. I am unable to take my wife with me because of financial issues. My wife got pregnant in March 2015 since then i am staying alone. Due to excessive sexual desire i have approached many prostitute but after spending lots of money only got psychical setisfaction. Mental desire was still unsatisfied. Since July 2015 i went through many trobles in my jobs including court case, money lost. Since then i have changed 3 employer but didnt receive proper funding from the company. I was all alone with less or no friends i started to search dating sites on interner in that i found 1 girl who is professiona sex chat agent on a web site and made a personal contact with me out of her job scope. In less then a week time i was feeling like i fell in love with her and cant live without her. Now she is having financial problem and seeking monthly Rs 20k from me for providing sex chat services. She is not fraud and some how i can manage to give her that by taking loan on credit card and somthing. I am in constant touch with her since last 7 days and i have yet not done any sex chat because my mind didnt allow me to ask her for sex. As day by day passing I am thinking about her only and not be able to concentrate on my work. I cant get rid of the problem and cant take my self out of the situation. Seeking help in this regard. Thank you Mayank Pinara

I have had an on again off again relationship with a man who suffered a traumatic brain injury 20 years ago. A nail went through his eye and lodged into his right frontal lobe before being surgically removed. Although he appears to be be high functioning he still suffers from apparent emotional problems. I don’t know what to do to help him cope emotionally or even if there is anything I can do. What would be your advice?

I have been taking depression meds for over 10 years now, after my husband was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer, however, I am one of the unfortunate ones, it seems as though it takes 6-8 weeks to kick in, then it is good for 6-8 months, then I am deeply down again, doctors either change my meds or increase my dosage, however again 6-8 weeks to kick in and 6-8 months it s good, then I am down again, this has been going on now for 10 years, I have probably been on 15-18 different meds. I heard about lithium, adding it to what I am already taking BUT the side effects seem very SERIOUS~~
