Hi doctor,

I feel like I need help with depression and anger. I am a single mom and constantly feel irritated mostly with myself. I cannot seem to be able to do the simplest tasks. It is an effort to get up, to shower, and to get dressed. The only reason I do it is because I am a mom. I feel so guilty all the time that my little girl is left with just me, as her dad is not interested. It is not postnatal, as I have had periods like this before her birth. And my bond with her is so strong, and she is the only good and right thing I have ever done. I am so sad, and my esteem is rock bottom, and I have learned to hide it well. I put a smile on, but I feel it is getting worse, and I do not go out anymore. I am losing touch with most of my friends. My doctors have this system, where you speak to the receptionist, then they have a phone interview to see if you need an appointment. I am terrified they will just laugh at me and tell me to go away.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand how difficult it is to struggle every day with yourself, to fight the anger and depression within you. I have treated many patients who go through this trauma every day.

My advice for you would be, try taking the following.

  1. Tablet Tryptomer (Amitriptyline) 10 mg, before sleeping, strictly for a month.
  2. Meet you friends or at least be in touch with them through any means. You may also find many online portals for making friends, as friends are the support system of your emotional life.
  3. Try meditation, relaxation techniques, and breathing exercises.
  4. Exercise improve your hormone imbalance, which may be the reason for the emotional outburst.
  5. Take a vacation with your daughter, as it will change the surrounding and increase your enthusiasm.
  6. If there is any counseling center, please enroll in it and have regular counseling sessions.
  7. Eat a healthy diet, increase fresh fruits and salads in your diet. It increases your energy level and vitality.
  8. Tablet Matilda forte (Multivitamin), once daily after food for a month.
  9. Tablet Uprise D3 60k (Cholecalciferol), once a week for four weeks.

Please follow this advice for a week, and if you find it helpful, feel free to revert.
