Felling of depression

I am not able to concentrate on things. The feeling of self hatred and feeling worthless has increased since past few months. Don't want to loose people who are around me, scared of telling my mental state as I think they will run away. My appetite is almost nill and having sleepless nights. Please help.

Dear mam, Depression is a common and treatable condition. Accepting a problem and putting effort to get it treated is not at all a sign of weakness. Rather, it proves that you are a fighter. Please meet a psychiatrist and get yourself treated. You have all the right to live a happy and peaceful life!

Do not lose hope, because help is definitely available, and your condition can be improved with professional intervention.

Hello my friend...just remember "Broken heart and shattered dreams are key mentors for weaving a glorious destiny."...Consult nearest psychiatrist as you require detailed counseling session and you may require medications to solve your problems as many things can't be discussed in forum like this...With that fallow relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation,avoid alcohol, smoking, coffee, tea...have good sleep and develop healthy food habits..good luck
