Hello doctor,

I am depressed. What can I do? My parents are not supporting my surgery, which is important for my self-confidence and self-esteem. My father is not taking care of my health or well-being. Please help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Any related incident or cause for having depression is unclear in this query. Details of surgery and symptoms which are not mentioned are appreciated to know the complete picture. Depressive feelings are generally linked with some loss, self-related issues, stress, or environmental or biological factors.

It can be managed by:

1. Medicines.

2. Psychotherapy to identify the causing agents and try resolving the issue.

3. Modifying thoughts related to concerns.

4. Physical exercises like walking, jogging, and workout.

5. Diet changes - Reduce the intake of too much salt and junk food and reduce sugar intake. Consuming healthy foods and fruits having serotonin and Omega-3 can reduce depression.

Thank you.
