How do I get rid of shyness and depression? How do I think positive and regain my appetite?

Hello, my name is Katie. I have a couple of things I want cleared, and hoping for some tips.. 1. Shyness . How do I get rid of it? I have never been able to go and talk with people, because I m way too shy. If somebody walk over to me and start talking, I automaticly back off. 2. Depression . Is there a way to get rid of this without asking your parents, talking with psychologists, taking anti-depressants? 3. Thoughts. Do you have any tips on how to refresh your thoughts from bad to good? I can t think positive, no matter how hard I try. In my head, there isn t even a future. 4. Eating disorders. I m starting to get worried that I might have one, but I m not sure, and I don t want to ask my mom. 2 years ago, I could eat several plates of food, but I lost the appetite completely. I hate food, and I can t eat more than 1 apple each day without feeling fat or guilty. 5. Maturity. Is there some steps to make the maturity process go faster? I mean in the head. I can t think mature at all, I feel like a little kid in a grown ups meeting room when I m at school. I don t hope I asked too weird or advanced questions.. But I would appreciate atleast a little answer. Thanks! :)

Psychiatrist 's  Response

welcome to health care magic

I will try to answer your queries

1) Shyness could be a part of your personality or social phobia.

2) Yes there are many effective treatment strategies for depression like antidepressants, psychotherapy etc

3) Psychotherapy - CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy)... Consult a psychiatrist/psychologist

4) Loss of appetite could be a part of your primary illness

5) Maturity comes with experience. Don't repeat mistakes in life. In that way you can attain it.

However, these all problems are linked to one primary diagnosis for which psychiatric consultation is required.

Good Luck
