I am so depressed with my life. Everything is going well now, but some past activities and incidents of my life are not getting over. Also, there are some characters in my family who ruined my past life and also trying to ruin my present life. I cannot tolerate them. There are lots of things and harsh stories that happened in my life since I was 12. There are many little heartbreaking stories that happened. All these things affect my studies. I lost my concentration on my studies. I am doing my second year at university now. I am wasting my time every day. I have no work, but still, I do not study. I have lost myself somewhere. I do not know what has happened to me. I feel like dying. Everyone is serious about their studies. But, I do not feel like reading anything. I feel so upset inside. I passed with O and A levels before. I would like to study and score a good result. I want to be an engineer. I just want to study properly. But, I lost all my courage. I am helpless. I do not know what to do. Please help me.
First of all, if you are really feeling very low, exhausted, and numb, then I think you should start with a good antidepressant medication. I suggest Nexito 10 mg (Escitalopram) once a day and waiting for the results for at least four to six weeks. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her, and take the medicine with consent. Now coming to the issues of previous issues. I am afraid you have been abused either physically or sexually during your childhood or teen years. If that is the problem, then it is the right time to speak up. Be assertive. Convey your feelings without giving much thought to what others will think. You need to assert what you want and what is unacceptable. People around you will keep on taking advantage of your silence unless you speak up. You need to work on your past bad experiences. You need to accept them as a reality and need to feel that now you are empowered to handle them. Life is not all about tragedies. When we look at our present and future with the glasses of the past all we see is black and bleak. You need to identify the positive qualities of yourself and your friends. You need to magnify your achievement. I believe it is a temporary phase and it will pass. You need to show your brave face. Start with today itself. Rise and take your first step forward. Books are just not books; they are your weapon to fight misery and negative feelings and self-perception.
