Hello, Your confussion and dismay is understandable. How ever, depression is a very common mental health issue.. It's important that you understand, that its a manageable condition. First you need to go to a good psychiatrist or a psychologist who can help you understand your condition better.

Hello.I am sorrybto hear about this.It is a very difficultbquestion to answer.D epression,yours is probably bipolar(assuming because lithium has been prescribed) has got a genetic leaning as well as the effect of situational circumstances.What matters is that you should never give up hope.There have been many like Winston Churchill,Robert Downey Jr etc who have had successful careers fighting bipolar illness.In India you have Deepika Padukone.So be brave.Go on with your work but follow your doctor's advice and don't skip medicines.Good luck !!
