Dear lybrate user. Your symptoms are suggestive of you being in major depression. A person when in major depression has low neurotransmitters like serotonin in brain and thus is very difficult for him to motivate himself. He has a negative attribution style for almost everything around him which is similar to what you are having and yes you seem to have other risk factors of being unmarried and jobless. Lack of confidence and interest are further hurdels to motivate self for social interactions. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist and get started on medications as soon as possible. Gradually over time cbt and other life changes may be brought about. With medications you will start feeling better by say 10 to 15 days from the start. I hope you take the step in right directions and get better soon. Take care.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Just Relax and start liking yourself.Have a positive self-talk, and learn What are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on.You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ Stress Management Super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, u will feel free and begin to fly in life.

Hi, I am very depressed from last 4-5 months and even taken medicines for stress and depression as well. It was ok for some time when i took one month break but after joining the work it again started, I am thinking so much negative and always think to quit job and sit idle or change the carrier where there is less pressure. I don't know, very confused in the life now. Please advice. Thanks.

You better consult a good homoeopath for this. Because depressed patients need to be cured as a person.Not as a patient to the doctor.This may happen to you may be because of you may not be able to handle loads of work together.Or may be another reason.

It is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ?cross addictions? i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father?s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Make a serious plan with your wife and the children and whoever else?s support you can get and act on it fast.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand your state of mind. Firstly, its never ok to compare you life with another person's. We all have different set of problems, which may be not apparent. Like others might feel that you are having a great life being single (not knowing how you actually feeling), same way you can have perceptions about their great life which infact may not be all that hunky dory. Problems are a part of everyone's life. You are young 28. Your previous relationships didn't work out for some reason. You need to have faith on god and most importantly yourself. Things will materialize soon and you will have a nice husband. Have you read the book" the secret" please read it. It says the way you think is the way you attract things from your enviroment. So think positive. Consult me for counseling.
