Hi dear.

I had gone through your query.

I understand your concern.

Diabetes has co morbid depression amd need proper assessment.

Anti depressant will helpful.

SSRI like escitalopram/ sertraline / peroxetine will be useful but choice is depend upon clinical symptoms.

Take advise from psychiatrist and get help.

Exercise and meditation can help.

Ensure proper sleep and diet.

Thanks you.

Still if you have a query then feel free to ask.

Happy to help you further.

Hi, I m 22 years old and I ve been dealing with depression for a few years now. At first I thought it would pass, but this wasn t the case. I also have lots of anxiety - most days I don t leave my room. I ve taken recreational drugs to help cope, but it s no cure. I m not sure what to do now or what kind of help I can ask for. I depend on my mom & her boyfriend to survive which just adds stress to the whole situation, but I can t deal with working in public. Sometimes I have suicidal thoughts but I don t think I d ever go through with it, for my family sake. I ve tried talking to my friends but that has just proven futile, and I ve come to realize these people were not my friends. Any suggestions?
