Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have been stressed lately as I have problems within my family that adds to my studies even though I tried to act and solve them on my own. It did not progress at all. It has been almost six months I keep trying and trying. This month I feel that I am going at my lowest and the problems keep piling up. Is this depression? I sometimes burst to cry every time I overthink now and then. And sometimes I went blank without noticing the time had gone very fast. I have little motivation and I have an imbalanced diet plan most of the time I sit and lay down at home. I have thoughts of committing suicide but I still know that it is a very stupid idea. If so this is depression, on what level I am at?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. As per your mentioned symptoms, you are suffering from depression or anxiety. As you are delaying things and it affects your study too that means you are not able to control your thoughts. It is because of neurochemical imbalance. You need to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed history and mental status examination and if required start medicine too. Consult psychologists for better management of your routine. Do you have any smoking or drinking habits? Any medical problems like diabetes, hypertension, and thyroid?

Thank you.

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