Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I think that I am suffering from depression. I have no attachment to the people around me. I have had a habit of overthinking since my school days. I am not able to concentrate on my studies.

Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I went through your query and understood your concern. It seems you are suffering from feelings of emptiness in life. Your self-esteem is low. That is why you get hurt by subtle emotions. You have to build up an image of yourself in society. Each one has a different personality. So, I suggest you follow the instructions mentioned below.

1. Pursue a new hobby.

2. Seek friends for company and good advice.

3. Keep yourself physically fit by practicing regular walking.

4. Focus on your career.

I hope this has helps you.

Thanks and regards.
