Hello doctor,

I have depression, feeling of failure in life, no more attraction to live life. Sad, anxious, or empty mood. Loss of interest or pleasure in activities. Thoughts of death or suicide, including suicide attempts.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand what you must be feeling right now. Depression is a serious but treatment illness. I can see you have thoughts of suicide and suicide attempts are also there which indicates that your depression worsened now. But do not worry, there are various treatment options available, with which your condition can be improved. Depression is a biological illness just like diabetes. It is neither your fault nor your wish to be in the pain that you are in right now and you cannot overcome these feelings and thoughts. Every disease needs appropriate treatment. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist online or offline as soon as possible. Remember help is there please avail it. I would require more details about your problem.


Investigations to be done:

Thyroid function test, serum B12.

Treatment plan:

May require inpatient care, medicines, therapy.
