I had Moderate Depression and was advised to take Mertazapine. However, am not feeling better. Its more worse. I keep hurting myself and cant sleep at all. Its been 3rd night am awake. Feels like am re living the same situation in more worse way. I dont know how to react, what to say, lost feeling, poor concentration, bursting out anger, negative feeling about my future, extremely and frequent mood swings, avoiding social life, extreme suicidal feeling, guilt. I find myself in the middle of no where, helpless. I cant talk to my parents as they might not take this seriously. They are planning for my marriage and I dont think its right time with issues like this. I feel my life is reducing day by day. Tremendous headache. And the worst part am having a complicated relationship where my marriage thing am not sure. However, am really not willing to marry now but its very difficult to convince parents on same. I feel like shopping my hair off. Irritaing! Can anybody pls help me with it?

Hey, At this point your situations have put you in an extreme helpless position. You are stuck among your complicated relationship, unwillingness to marry, expectations from parents without considering your stand & physical reactions. You are taking it all out on yourself. Any situation how much ever out of control it might seem has a way out. You need this realization & little assistance to find that way & take it. I wonder if the psychiatrist you went to also suggested for counseling or therapy. You also need a different prescription if one you are under isn't helping & immediate assistance from a psychologist, therapist or a psychiatrist with counseling. Remember one thing, if you have the strength to manage the extent of pain & pressure you are facing right now, you certainly have it in you to come out of it & make your life your way. Take Care.
