Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am 20 years old. I have a sense of loneliness. I feel like there is no one to support or take care of me. I feel like I do not worth living because I cannot carry out my goals. I have a boyfriend too. But most of the time, he is obsessed with his work and does not spend time with me.

What should I do?

I need help. When I watch movies or television, I feel better. I need to travel, but I am not in a situation to travel.

Can you please help me out?

Thank you.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I read your query and understand your concerns.

From the available description, you have limited coping skills leading to feelings of boredom, loneliness, and unworthiness.

I like to inform you that the same symptoms can present in a variety of medical and psychiatric conditions, so it is important to have proper communication with a doctor. Although I will gladly assist you, I do not think the available information is enough to suggest anything conclusively. You will need to see a doctor in person or online.

Thank you.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
