Hello doctor,

Currently, I am jobless, and I am in extreme fear. I got a call for three interviews but no response from the employer. I have become very restless and full of tension. From January till this day, I have left four companies. I feel I have lost all my confidence and strength to stand up again. Every day I am living in severe mental pain and insecurity. I am feeling very insecure about my future. I am pursuing my graduation, and two more years are left to complete. My parents are assuring me to stay relaxed, but I cannot. I am repeating and saying the same thing about my frustration every day to my parents, but I cannot get relief. There are many things I can do to avoid this tension, but I cannot. I am becoming hopeless. I am unable to control myself and my thoughts. I am not getting any job to relieve this pain.

I have made mistakes by leaving some opportunities recently, and it is haunting me. It's been more than six months that I have been jobless. I have recently failed to go to a job as I had become nervous and had a panic attack. I have become clueless about what I will do in my life. Without a job, I will not be able to pay the fees for my class. I am lost. I am not getting what to do. I am scared of thinking about what will happen to me. I am not able to clear my mind to stay calm. Now I feel I will not be able to stand up again to work in a company. My mind is full of disturbance, and I cannot sleep properly. I feel like crying, but I cannot. I want to be back to normal again. Current medications I am taking are Demo 100 twice a day and tablet Populas gold once daily. Kindly help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read your query and understand your concern. Why are you so tensed and anxious all the time? We all make mistakes in life, but we return to daily life by carefully assessing our decisions so that similar findings will or should not be repeated in the future. Unfortunately, it is difficult to guide you by texting, and I would suggest a phone video consultation or consulting a doctor in person who can guide you. In addition, I would suggest counseling as you cannot appease yourself and keep yourself motivated. Instead, try to sit quietly and assess why you are having so many negative thoughts, try to have positivity within yourself, and believe that the situations will change with time.

I can suggest many ways to uplift yourself, but it would be only possible when you realize the core issue that makes you anxious. Then, you can get help from a counselor through phone consultation or visit a local doctor in your area to guide and relieve severe anxiety.

Revert for more queries.

Thank you.

Hi doctor,

Thank you for you reply.

I was getting treatment under a psychiatrist, and he knew all my details. So please transfer the case to that specific doctor.
