Depression Answer A9806
Hi, welcome to the ehealth forum and I am glad to help you.
You seem to be suffering from major depression and need urgent psychiatric consultation. You need drug therapy which is most important no doubt but also require psychotherapy to cope with decreased self esteem and demoralization which will help in improving the outcome. Cognitive behavioural and interpersonal therapies are important in improving psychological and social adjustment. You need more frequent visits to your doctor till the time symptoms of major depression ameliorate.
Hope this helps. Take care.
