I am 34 years old and single. I am seeing a clinical psychologist once in two months whom I was previously visiting. She told me she always prefers face-to-face sessions. She was not happy when I mentioned that I have discontinued the medication, Fludac 40 mg, as advised by one of the doctors I had visited. She said that I was not strong still and should take a doctor's opinion on the medication as my exams are nearing and I have not really started any preparation. So, the stress level is high. But, she has encouraged me and counseled me to clear at least two papers this time. To me, clearing two papers in itself is a Herculean task. She says the mood swings and the depression will start again if I discontinue the medication now. I am feeling stressed, tired and demotivated though I want to study in peace without any disturbances, and this is not at all happening. I do not like the routine when I start my day. My mother is not around as she is at my sister's place. My other sister who lives next door does not even drop in to see what is going on. So, it is just me and my 75-year-old father at home. He goes to work during the day. It is depressing to be around him. Please advice.
