Hello doctor,

I am feeling alone in life. I came to work abroad and fortunately got a job at a clothes shop and running it for a year. But, I have not been able to save to help my family. I feel weak and no proper food I am eating. I do not want to deal with customers at the shop. My past breakup thoughts haunt me and I feel lonely here. I cannot go back home because I do not have any money to help my family. Sometimes, I think about committing suicide.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You are suffering from depression because of your situation. I suggest you take a few medications as you are having suicidal ideations too.

SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) like Escitalopram and Sertraline will help you in early recovery. Visit a nearby psychiatrist and take the medicine with their consent.

Keep confidence in yourself, this phase will be over too. Keep faith in yourself. All these problems are temporary and will improve with time.
