Hopelessness, afraid

I cannot control my thoughts. Completely unstoppable. I feel my mind is always under some pressure. A lot of these thoughts make me feel guilty for something I have not done. I have been experiencing this since my teenage years. There is always music playing in my mind even though I heard that song days back. I avoid people and groups. I feel I am going to loose myself when I am around people, my hands start shaking, making me feel hopeless. I have had moments where my hands were shaking holding a cup of coffee in front of my colleagues. I have started excepting this now and therefore avoid socialising. This never happens at home. I take an aplrax 0.25 whenever it goes beyond control. Can a doctor actually help me with all these? Can I feel normal again ? I see people living freely while I am stuck battling myself. I smoke as it gets me going for a while, that too in a lonely place.

Hello,
Yes, your condition can be helped. From the description that you have provided it can be said that you are suffering from significant negative emotional states and there is a high possibly of an ongoing depressive episode. The treating psychiatrist would also like to assess for Obsessive compulsive disorder, personality related factors, and your socio-enviornmental  factors prior to coming to a diagnosis and gaining a better understanding of your mind and mental health.

Thereafter a comprehensive management plan can be made where medication and/or psychological intervention will be used for your well being.

With a comprehensive assessment and collaborative management your mental health can definitely be improved. My strong suggestion for you is to seek an appointment with a psychiatrist near you and seek solution to your problems.

I must here caution you against use of alprax and ciggerates as they can cause addiction and can harm your health.

Hope this helps you, best of luck for health and future..
