Hi dr, I'm suffering from frequent mood swings. Almost all the time of a day I feel discomfort and sadness. I have fear to deal with people. I. e in mingling with people. When someone shouts or raise at me I feel panic and my mind will go out of control. I can't concentrate anything. I can't control my mind from negative thoughts. I tried to read so many self helping books but it doesn't work. I fall asleep almost all the days at night and wake up late. I'm suffering from frequent headaches during morning and evening time. Pls help me

Hi your description indicates likely depression and anxiety symptoms. You need to start taking things objectively without fighting with your emotions. Our vulnerabilities get exposed during stressful times leading to negative thoughts, anxiety symptoms, lack of motivation, energy, confidence etc. Take a step back and appreciate these emotions in the right context. Practice mindfulness and schedule your activities with things and activities you enjoy, meditation, relaxation, yoga, good sleep hygiene and healthy eating. If still struggling, please consult a psychiatrist for further assessment and appropriate treatment like cognitive behavior therapy and possibly medicines. Regards
