Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I feel lifeless most of the times. I do not find peace anymore, and I do not feel like doing anything. It is all because of that one person, and I believe he is destroying my life, but I still love him. I do not want to have feelings for anyone, and I want to be heartless, single, free of stress, and happy. I feel suffocated, and I am tired of life and everything. I feel so stressed, and I want to run away from my home, but I just do not have the guts. I do not want to hurt my parents neither do I want to live a stressed life. I feel death is easier than life, and I cry more and laugh less. I do not want to feel the way I am feeling right now. I want my feelings to fade for him. He hurts me a lot, but I still love him. I want to get over it and want to live my life. I do not want to feel dead. Sometimes, I think of committing suicide, but I get scared thinking about my parents.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. All your problems seem to be related to the relationship issue. The moment you try to forget actively or stay away from someone, usually it never works. The basic human psychology is that if you go behind someone or give the key to your happiness to them, it is very likely that the person will take you for granted. So, first of all, take a break. Go for a trip with some of your friends, let the person know that you can be happy without him, do not show your vulnerable side or go pleading for anyone. The world is such a beautiful place where there are lots to do and love, do not stick to the negatives and keep worrying, understand that it is just a passing phase and if you hold on, everything will be positive. Thank you.
