Dear user. I can understand. Depressive disorder or depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Suicidal tendency is one main symptom of depression. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.

Doubt and reassurances is such a debilitating that this is my 500th query on my illness on Lybrate .i am 50% improved by clomipramine as far as my ocd is concerned but as I have predominant obsession so it is very hard to get 100% result .but the worst part is that I am very unproductive, I don't bath, I do not brush for months .some well known psychiatrist says it is depression ,some says it is negative schizophrenia .i do not know who is right and doubt is still there so today I am again asking this question .my mother is schizophrenic but I don't have any classic delusion and hallucinations .i want to bath but I don't know why I can't, I just think rather execute the task .i have tried escitalopram ,fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, sertraline, desvenlafaxine with max dose for max time & I have also tried lowest dose of rpn, oleanz, qutipin, aripiprazole, amisulpride. Clomipramine is the only drug which is helping me 50% for my ocd .but what about the productivity? What is next step? please guide me!

Dear Lybrate user if there are no hallucinations and delusions then it won't be considered as schizophrenia. As I have told you in other question your issues requires psychotherapy coupled with clinical hypnotherapy and nlp. This will for sure give you significant results in less time. I have had such clients where the diagnosis was not proper and patients were having mixed symptoms plus anxiety. Consult a good psychotherapist cum clinical hypnotherapist or contact me for the same. Good luck. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user. It is not healthy to have doubts in a relationship. And if you cannot believe then you should end the relationship for good of you both. It is not possible to know whether she is lying or not.

To let go of past, you need to first forgive. Remember we forgive others to free ourselves from the pain. Also plan for your present and future life and start taking steps to executing those plans. If you are not able to do it on your own then consult a psychotherapist.

This is what we called in psychotherapy is dam this, dam that this may be because he is going through some major issue and wanted you to know it on your own. This is usually not a good expectation in a relationship. People need to communicate openly with each other. mind reading negatively affects the relationship. Give him some time to get out of that pressure. If he still behaves like this then it is important for you to reconsider your relationship with him.

You are a care giver and do you need to take care of yourself also. Wondering if you can get additional help. If yes then hire someone for few hours and in that time do something to relax yourself. Also focus on your future plans and start thinking how you can accomplish them with this responsibility. You can also consult a psychologist for emotional management.

Do not take too much stress, life does not stops as one person goes from your life, its alright make a more beautiful girlfriend than before with whom you can rely on. Antidepressants drugs couldn't help you either. I suggest you to make new girlfriend hang out with do shopping and watch movies stay happy in front of those who makes you feel small and who put you in this condition, rather going in stress.
