Psychiatrist 's  Response

welcome to health care magic

You are probably suffering from "major depressive episode".
Don't worry and relax. There are many efficacious treatment options available (medication, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy etc) these days with less side effects.
So consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and treatment. With adequate treatment, you will be relieved of your suffering.
Good Luck

Emergency Medicine Specialist Dr. Sheeba Stephen's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms such as lack of interest, feeling down and hopeless, inability to experience pleasure appear to be indicative of depression. You need professional help to come out of this phase. There are effective treatment options for this, in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome your problems. So, I would advise you consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment. Also keep talking and sharing about your feelings to someone close, a friend or a relative, so that you will feel less burdened and more supported.

Wish you all the best.
