Lack sex drive, busy life. Why is life lifeless?

I feel irritable at work and i hate my job,im a single mum and im irrritable when my kids are around me, feel like screaming sometimes, im not as bad when im on my own. I lack sex drive also, just feel too tried to bother, then i feel guilty as my partner mite think im getting bored with him and i only see him at week ends. I sometimes feel over whelmed by how much i have to do before i can relax and that gets me really irritable. When i do finally relax, feels like its not long before i have to go to bed, then its sleep, which a really look forward to,but then morning comes quickly again and the same old horrible day begins again. Have been on antidepressants before but have now took my self off them approx 2 months ago, didn t feel like they were doing anything.

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

Your symptoms such as increased irritability, lack of sex drive and fatigue may be indicative of depression. You have mentioned that you have been on anti-depressants before and have stopped them on your own recently. An abrupt cessation of antidepressants can sometimes cause a worsening of depression, and this could be a probable reason for your prominent symptoms now.

Since these symptoms seem to be causing you significant distress and dysfunction, I would suggest that you seek professional help. There are many other treatment options available like trying a different class or combination of anti-depressants or trying psychological therapies like CBT.

Wish you all the best.
