About a year ago, I was feeling stressed about my work. I would make up conversations and situations in my mind constantly. I had reduced talking to people and only kept thinking. I had a feeling of impending doom like something bad was going to happen. I got a sick, sinking feeling in my stomach. I used to cry for little things and sometimes suddenly. I experienced heavy breathing and numbness in my hands. I also started getting thoughts of hurting myself to escape everything and everyone. I then quit my job. For the past one year I have been doing everything I like. I am self-employed now. But these same feelings are triggered back now even after changing the situation. I keep imagining possible conversations, have negative thoughts, and feel anxious and fearful. It is exhausting. Sometimes I get afraid for no reason. I feel unrested and tired always along with acidity. I feel disconnected. It’s like, I am happy but not really feeling happy. My mood too changes very quickly.

My mother is addicted to sleep medicines. Accidentally she had taken an overdose of 4 tablets and collapsed in the bathroom after which we threw away all the sleeping pills. Doctor has prescribed half tablet a day in case she does not get sleep. She uses that prescription to get the medicine hiding from us. Please suggest how can we get rid of this habit of her.

I have been suffering from a lot of stress which have affected my physical health as well. Sometimes I get BP issues too. All this I feel is due to past traumas (Lost my mom at 3)& current issues I have faced. I'm good at academics but there's a pressure to constantly prove myself at the academics for future goals. Seldom I write a diary & also cry when not seen. I have got suicidal thoughts too.

Helow doc.. I am sick and tired of a problem since the first day of my life and that is i cant adjust with my father.. His nature is too much dominating and he does not want to give me a little space.. he always pinches me through out the day so that i react and a horrible fight can take place... But that does not mean he does not love me.. he does care for me...but i hate him from the day one and i have a deep down anger and hatred for him.. Two years of my b.tech course are left so that i can get a good job and separate myself to make a world of my own...but ego clashes and daily fights are making my life hell...how can i get over from this??
