I am not happy in relationship also. I genuinely do not know whats is happening in my life, all I can say is I am not happy, I always get hurt on small negligible things. I always live in insecurity, I live in FOMO (FEAR OF MISSING OUT) in my relationship. This thing create problems in my relationship, my self confidence my self esteem is too low that I feel shame or very low in front of her, and live in FOMO. I know many of my problems but do not know how to deal with it. I am just living life full of sadness, just do not know what to do. Sometimes I think of breakup but I can not live happy without her. But I live in fear of losing her and over react at everything, this thigh create problems. And I end up being sad. Insecurity come because I feel low, I feel I am incapable/worth of being with her. And live in fear of losing her. I am bad in studies, I do not have many friends, not successful in life. Do not know what to do. Help.

Hi, I can understand your feelings. You are not alone. It happens with many people when they overthink about their future. This creates anxiety and which results in negative thoughts. If these thoughts hampering your daily life I mean if it is hampering your sleep, appetite or hygiene then I would suggest you to meet a psychiatrist and get medication. Otherwise you may take few counseling sessions from a counselor. If you want my help then you may take text counseling from me here on Lybrate itself. Meanwhile I would suggest you to join some meditation group and also do some physical activity like playing or brisk walking or gym daily for at least one hour. Have a healthy diet and proper sleep. All the best.

A health counselor will suggest you better. In Ayurved there are so many medicines & therapies e.g. Shirodhaaraa, Nasyakarma, Sarvaang-Abhyang & Swedan. If you are interested you may communicate with me on-line or chat with me in private.

Well I was never in relationship, I just liked him and when he got to know, he just ended friendship or I forced him unintentionally by my behaviour I was embarrassed after I confessed to him. Its been 4 months. But I have been low for more than 5-6 months, like I used to cry a lot, a lot. Being lazy, I have been struggling with memory issues for quite long, maybe that's how I am not sure. I get easily confused and now I don't feel energy or interest to start anything. I also feel I am worthless of trying anything and simply its waste of parent's money. But after the heartbreak, I got kind of crazy because of both heartbreak and embarrassment. I used to be sad for what specific reason I don't know but somewhat because I am a failure or good for nothing. Well I am in quite good mood since day before yesterday evening, happy though neutral. Maybe I am recovering from past as you said it fades away. Though I had to try a bit to control my overwhelming mood'.So, I am not sure now what to say. But I need to energise myself and bring happiness or joy of doing something. I am a college student and I do things only to submit as if I don't bother anything. I am also taking medication for hypothyroid, which could be another reason for me having very confused mind, getting lost and being tired/sleepy. I have excessive concentration issues and I talk way too much with myself.

If you have a mood disorder and 9 years ago, then it is quite serious and will take a long time in recovery and only if you are cooperative. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i.e. Feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding. Regarding some of the symptoms here goes.

Hello Sir/Mam, I am 26 years boy and I have problem of anxiety and depression. I am not happy with my life and always want to die. I always think and think and get depressed. Whatever I do I can't concentrate on that. My mind always think of negative things like whatever work I do my mind think of negative things. I can explain what actually is happening with me - If I want to go out or eat something or want to do any work than my mind thinks of lots of negative things that if I don't do this than something wrong will happen or if I didn't go their than something negative will happen. When I walk or eat or any work I do my mind always thinks lots of negative things and due to this I can't live my life happily.

Hello Lybrate User I appreciate your effort that you could understand and put it in words what you are going through. It is very important or rather a first step that we require some help. After reading what you have mentioned, I would suggest you to visit a Psychiatrist or if the psychiatrist is not available in your area then visit a physician for the same. Side by side if you can seek help from a clinical psychologist, it would be great as it will you to understand your symptoms more and more and also an understanding would be developed about your personality traits, your coping mechanisms and what is actually leading to such thinking. A lot of people undergo certain life events, if not events but 'something' keeps on bothering them, due to which one develops negative thinking towards the self and the others. Moreover, it seems that you have started making associations of lot of things in your life, like if I will do this, that will happen etc. Or just like you mentioned in your concern. Therapy with the psychologist helps you to develop a skill to deal with this vicious circle you are into most of the time. So, consult a psychiatrist and a clinical psychologist, take few therapy sessions with the clinical psychologist and you will experience a shift from your current state of mind. If you have further queries, please write back. All the Best! Regards.
