Customer Question

I cry all of the time, I am crying as I write this because I am so mad at myself for not being able to controll my emotions. I have no medical insurance and have lost my job. I have other issues but I need to fine out what is wrong with me before I can address those issues. I can't let anyone in my family know that I am talking about my problems. What is wrong with me?

Of course I am sad I cry all of the time. I get angry with myself for that and it make situations worse then I cry more.

Dr Vikas :

I can understand and sorry to ask this silly question but just wanted to rule out the possibility of depression.

Dr Vikas :

I am giving you a link below regarding symptoms of depression, please go through the link and let me that are you also experiencing the similar symptoms or not, if yes, the reason behind your feeling this way is probably because you are suffering from depression.

Dr Vikas :

If it is indeed depression, then simply starting some antidepressant like Sertraline or Fluoxetine by your doctor should be very helpful in treating these symptoms and after starting the treatment you will notice a great improvement in your symptoms within 1-2 weeks of starting the treatment.
