I am a 27 years old female. I got married one and a half years back. I am a working woman. For the last two years my health is deteriorating. Its reflecting on my face in particular. I have always been thin. My body structure still remains the same but somehow my face is like degenerating. I am losing my looks. My skin is darkening continuously. I have a lot of pain in my legs all the time as well as a little pain in my body all over. My periods are irregular. Earlier they used to be after 2-2. 5 months. Nowadays for the last one year or so they lag by around 10-12 days. During my six months courtship I had seen two doctors as my health started getting affected and every one was saying bridal glow is missing. No issues from me being happy with the marriage or not, absolutely fine there. But the doctor gave me few medicines which I came to know dealt with depression. Moreover at that time I skipped my periods for around 3 months. After testing it came out to be polycystic ovary syndrome. I started medication, but discontinued as I felt it did not suit me and I started keeping unwell and my wedding day was approaching. At that I fell very ill with not feeling like being around people. I wanted to just sleep and be alone. Byt right after my wedding I was very fine. But of late I have a feeling at times that I am not happy. I want to cry. I suddenly become sad. I infact think a lot. If any one around me is not smiling or not talking to me I think that person is angry at me and get tensed. I feel mostly people must be talking bad about me. Earlier I never used to get angry. But now I get angry and pissed off at smallest of things. I feel suffocated at times and also feel heavy weight on my head. I dont shout out my anger but burn inside. I myself feel my blood burning when I get angry or feel like crying. I have a continuous feeling of my short comings and incapabilities and feel no one is happy with me. I also get jealous if someone is good at something particularly in which I lag like talking to people. I am an introvert and cannot striike a conversation. So if someone is very talkative I get angry. I am drowsy very often and I can sleep 24*7. I am not sure what am I suffering from if suffering at all. In text it may sound very severe though it is not that high as it appears. Please help.
My mother seems to have some problem. Small issues trigger anger and it last for long time. In that period she abuse a particular person mostly my wife, start scolding loudly says bad world about her family, start looking for job, leave whole family crying and in anger. She creates so much scenes that everyone gets scared even I think of going away from her, she doesn't listen to anyone and she stays quite after begging for long time from different person. She calm down little bit but still in anger which takes long time to get down. Please let me know if I can give her some medicine without knowing her or what is other way to do that. I am very much fed up with this and it is destroying my and my wife life. We hardly can do anything in front of her she has problem of we going out going for movie or doing Anything.

- Repeated crying spells for no reasons
- Changes in appetite — weight loss or gain
- Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
- Loss of energy, getting tired easily
- Negative thinking

Q. How common is depression?
A. It is one of the commonest medical illness and around one in six people will experience depression once in their life time.
Q. How is depression different from normal sadness?
A. Feeling sad once in a while is normal however in depression sadness stays for most of the day and one is not able to feel good despite trying to do so. Even if a person cheers up once in a while, its very short lasting and gloom tends to return back.
Q. What causes depression?
A. Multiple factors are responsible. Changes in levels of certain brain chemicals such as serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine are the main cause. Also, genetics is an important factor. Depression tends to run in families. Finally, any stressful life event can trigger the depression.
Q. What is “smiling depression”?
A. In some cases depression is not so evident. Patients are able to hide it from others and may keep a smile on their face, however they suffer from inside.
Q. Is depression a dangerous disorder?
A. Not really. Since its easily treatable, it can’t be called as ‘dangerous’. However, it should not be taken lightly. Depressed patients can develop medical complications like high blood pressure, diabetes etc. Also, depression is the most common cause of suicide. So prompt treatment is important.
Q. If i am feeling depressed, does that mean i am a ‘weak person’ ?
A. Not at all. Any one can develop depression. It has got nothing to do with being strong or weak. The important thing is to accept the problem and to work on it. If someone develops ‘high blood pressure’, we don't call that person weak , similarly, we should not presume that depression occurs in weak people.
Q. But i was a very ‘positive person’. How can i develop depression?
A. You are still a ‘positive person’. Thats why you have come to seek help and get better. Please remember depression is a medical illness. Once it gets treated, you will be back to your normal happy self.
Q. Is depression treatable?
A. Absolutely yes. Between 80-90% of patients respond to treatment. A combination of medications and psychotherapy (counselling sessions) is the best approach.
Q. Do I need to take treatment lifelong?
A. Absolutely not. In majority of patients, a course of six months to one year is enough. If one have had multiple episodes of depression in the past, treatment may be longer.
Q. But antidepressants are habit forming and have serious side effects?
A. Totally untrue. Antidepressants are not habit forming. There is no possibility of developing addiction to antidepressants. However one should not stop them suddenly. Its important to gradually decrease the dosage of medicines before stopping it. The side effects are uncommonly seen and even when they occur they are mild such as acidity, stomach upset etc. You should discuss about the side effects with your doctor.
Q. But the google search shows a lot of side effects of medications?
A. Anybody can write anything on the internet. You should not blindly trust it. The list of side effects that you see on internet includes the ones which are extremely rare, so no need to get scared of those. The doctor sitting inside the chamber has put tens of years in studying about these illnesses and treatment. Please trust your doctor more than any random google search.
Q. Can i do something on my own to get better?
A. Yes, many things. To start with, go for a short ten minutes run everyday. Practice yoga or meditation. Try not to be alone. But most importantly, take medicines regularly and come for therapy sessions regularly.
"Is there a recovery from depression without medication?"
This is a question that many people ask Dr R K Aggarwal and rather they also search for the web, talk to other doctors to seek alternative then treatment hoping that they can recover on their own without taking any treatment. Well for that answer can be very complicated as well as simple. It basically depends on the severity and persistence of the symptoms on is having.
Few people with whom Dr R K Aggarwal has had experience with has recovered fully from depression entirely on their own using some of the natural tips and treatments which are i am going to mention in this article as well.
If anyone needs to directly come and talk with, He/She is welcome to come and talk with Dr R K Aggarwal directly.
Reaching out for a help is an important part of the recovery process but to get that help can take many forms and what works for one person may not also work for another so be careful before using any methods without prescriptions.
There are effective non-drug treatment options for mild to moderate depression.
Many people with mild to moderate depression, where sleep is adequate, can recover from depression with talk therapy and adjudicative strategies such as exercise, improved nutrition, mindfulness techniques, sunlight or light therapy, support from friends, family or a support group, and lifestyle changes. All individuals with depression should rule out a medical issue which may contribute to their depressed mood. Many medical problems, including vitamin deficiencies and hormone imbalances, can contribute to depression. Getting a thorough physical exam to rule out a medical cause is important.
If there is no clear medical cause, psychotherapy which focuses on improving self-care, reengaging in pleasurable and meaningful activities, and managing negative thoughts can be helpful in many cases. Working on issues that are impacting relationships with friends, loved ones, and
family can also greatly relieve depression in some individuals.
And for some,
exploring and resolving unresolved grief or early childhood trauma may be important.
Other approaches that can contribute to recovery include bodywork, acupuncture or other alternative medical approaches, meditation, yoga, or spiritual exploration.
Taking medication for depression, when needed, should not be viewed as a failure.
However, it is important to recognize that depression is an issue as serious as diabetes, epilepsy, or even cancer. Because it involves mood, thoughts, and behavior, it can often be treated through those channels. But there are also genetic and environmental factors that make some individuals susceptible to depression and which may result in a more persistent condition that is more difficult to treat.
Just as other conditions sometimes require medication for their treatment, depression may also require medication to fully resolve. And it is important to recover fully rather than settle for persistent mild depression. Persistent depression can become chronic and more severe over time as the brain becomes accustomed to the depressed state. Therapy and medication combined have the highest success rate in terms of resolving depression, and when therapy alone is not sufficient, it may help to consult with a doctor to discuss medication options.
It is important to remember that, when it comes to treating depression,
There is no prize for recovering “better” than another person.
Recovering without therapy, without medication—literally “on your own”— does not earn you any awards.
The prize is being emotionally healthy.
