I am 17 year old .I was scared of teachers .reading books in front of whole class .had less frnds .always felt low when compared with others. I always felt I had no importance in society. I feared of facing school and society .my fear started increasing day by day but then I started overcoming my fear and succeeded many a time but it was temporary it always come back .I started taking drugs before facing any situation or people but the problem was limited up to strangers ,teachers. And public places. But it started haunting when I was with my frnd .even parents .small children .almost everyone .I was helpless at home because I was not able communicate with my parents because of uncontrolled blushing I can't make eye contact with them. I don't know what it is but I will tell my symptoms (1) I feel irrational fear and un comfortable near my nose (2) my only and biggest problem because of this fear I get defenseless ,get offended and embrassed easily when some frnd or someone says something I suddenly feel extreme fear which is out of control and I occur always even I am alone or thinking about the situation. (3) difficult to breath ,and chest pain (4) I never never feel comfort even I am alone that fear and uncomfortable at my nose always are with me sometime it mild I am able to control and sometime it is so extreme that I avoid talking to any one .I feel sudden attacks of fear and I get embrassed and some people even whom I know like my frnd intensely try to scares me by threatening me and I get defenseless and panic attack .I feel like dying because of insults I face by this fear. I have left going out of my house 0 frnds left I am all alone not even my family. (5) I can confidentially say that I am not this fear because sometime when this fear and uncomfortable at my nose goes away for sometime then I feel so relief that I can talk to any one fearlessly ,can talk to girl. (6) I have seen that whenever my attention swift from this fear to some work than I feel little relief and able to complete my breath properly. But for short period (7) I feel that I am not shy but this awkward type of feeling make uncomfortable and terror while facing I need help for something which is unknown for me But I will never give up.

In today’s stressful environment, more and more people are being diagnosed with psychological disorders such as insomnia and depression. Neither of the two are things which people feel lucky to possess. However, it is interesting to note that there is a link between the two conditions. Also, the problems are a lot more common than a person is likely to first think; 80% of depressed people suffer from chronic insomnia!
For a long time until recently, many people were of the opinion that most depressed people were insomniac. But that is not really correct. The two issues do overlap to a large extent, but they are different from each other. Again, that does not mean one cannot affect the other.
When a person has depression, one of the main things that he or she can experience is a lack of pleasure from the activities and happenings which occur in his or her daily life. Similarly, when a person does not get enough sleep or even just cannot sleep, he or she is quite likely to display a tendency to worry. Often, worrying sets the stage for depression to develop in the person. In fact, doctors have observed that people who do not sleep enough are more likely to undergo treatment for depression than the others.
Recent findings have concluded that when a person sleeps better, the case of depression also shows an uptick. In addition to this, the habit of sleeping well can also go quite a long way to make sure that a person does not relapse into depression. According to some sleep therapies, people who suffer from lack of sleep are advised to follow a systematic routine of getting to bed and getting out of bed. Activities including reading in bed or watching TV after going to bed must be avoided. While there are various means to help a person sleep better, the choice as to which one would suit a person in the best possible way is only best decided by the person’s personal doctor. What is for sure is the fact that a person can effectively sleep to a better life!
So, it can be said that if a person wants to cure his/her depression and enjoy life being peppy, napping away is not such a bad idea after all. Having said that, everything is good only up to a certain limit! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.
