Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I fight with one decision and then I decide another thing at the end moment. I get agitated easily. I also cannot focus on my studies and think of suicide at times. I feel suffocated at times and suffer from mood swings. Am I Bipolar?

Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query and understood your concern.

It seems you are suffering from a major depressive disorder. There is non-pharmacological management for your depression. So, I suggest you follow the instructions mentioned below.

1. You should do exercises daily for 30 to 45 minutes like at least going for a walk. It will help uplift your mood. It will help you to divert your anger outburst.

2. You should do meditation for 20 minutes daily. It will increase concentration and calm you.

3. You should eat healthy home-cooked food, and avoid junk foods.

4. You must drink enough water.

5. You should spend quality time with friends and family daily or do video calls if you are living away from your family.

6. You should spend time on creative hobbies like reading good books, writing journals, painting, drawing, and learning new skills.

7. You should take enough seven to eight hours of sleep daily.

8. You must avoid tobacco or alcohol or any substance abuse.

9. Do a complete blood count and thyroid function tests.

I hope this has helped you.

Thanks and regards.
