Depression Questions

I have been suffering from anxiety and depression. This is extremely prevalent in the morning hours due to which I tend to oversleep and avoid getting up. Even when I do, I feel overwhelmed about how the day would seem like. This slowly gets better as the day passes and I feel much better in the evening when my day has ended. It could be work related, fear of authority, possibility of an unexpected call from a superior basically anticipation of any issue which may be unpleasant or requires a change for me. I tend to also suffer from social anxiety, refrain from talking to people, prefer emails or chat over voice calls. I tend to blank out over calls, avoid talking when many people are on the call and refrain sharing my views even if I have one. It is always a sense of fear, being judged or the feeling of creating a bad perception with my bosses. This has made me withdraw more and more over the days. I have very few friends but not close enough to discuss these issues or confide in them. These issues have manifested recently in the last 4-5 years. I have visited a psychiatrist earlier and am on a mild antidepressant. Counselling did not work for me as I am very judgemental and find it difficult to trust people. I am in a better mood on weekends but I cannot enjoy them with a thought of a monday coming up which constantly lingers in my mind. Basically any positivity is mulled by a negative thought. Though I have had a fairly successful career, I have always felt that things have never worked for me. I am married and share a great rapport with my wife but internally, I am a bisexual with a stronger affinity to me which makes it difficult for me and the guilt persists. My son is on the autism spectrum and this is another factor that bothers me. My father (who passed away in 2009) was always a very head strong and dominating person and somewhere I feel that his domination during my childhood has been one of the factors of my not being able to express and low self esteem. My mother who was very close to me passed away last year. Overall, I have been suffering internally, not able to vent out. Sharing this with my wife would upset her more as she is already overwhelmed worrying about my son's future. I feel this is affecting my health, feeling sleepy, drowsing, drained physically and mentally and wishing that it would be a long night and I never have to wake up - though it has never been suicidal. But this is not something that I want to live with and wish to have a peaceful and happy mind.

Dear lybrate-user, usually antidepressants are started in a low dose since many persons respond well for low dose itself. Few of them need higher dose and combination of antidepressants - limbival forte and escitalopram - both are in low dose only. Occasionally, to make the antidepressant work better and to give your mother some tranquility, aripiprazol will be added. It is suitable to take all these together. After 2-3 weeks, follow up with your psychiatrist to monitor side effects and benefits.

Hi. Good day. It's because of anxiety it's normal to worry about things from time to time, but when worry takes up a significant part of your day or causes physical symptoms, psychotherapy can help you deal with it. There are many treatments to reduce and manage symptoms of anxiety disorder. Usually, people with anxiety disorder take medicine and go to counseling. You can try some self management techniques. Avoid alcohol and caffeine. Caffeine is well-known as an anxiety inducer. Practice meditation and yoga regularly. Do breathing exercise. Eat well balanced diet. Stay hydrated. For further assistance feel free to reach me online or through Lybrate chat.

Dear user you are talking about the problem of overthinking and irrelevant thoughts. Or it may be some kind of obsession that I would be able to confirm after a proper conversation with you. When we are aware about our problem we are able to control but we have to control it in a proper way, if you don’t want to take medication for life time then please wake up yourself, medicines are not a perfect solution for mental health, you have to work on your own, your will power, your mind and thoughts. You have to take some extra care of yourself. I donã¢â€â™t know what are the circumstances under which you are taking medicines, I want to know the whole details about your disorder. But I must say donã¢â€â™t depend on the medicines and donã¢â€â™t make it a habit for future. You need counseling session for a better control on this disorder and medicines. Medicines are not the only solution, counseling is a best option for you so that you could better understand yourself and save yourself from the side effects of medicines. Please call and discuss your problem in detail and then iã¢â€â™ll be able to help you better. My contact no is mobile.
