Hi doctor,

I am concerned about my mental health. I had a breakdown before few days and I have thoughts of suicide. After that, I started watching depression videos. I listen to depression songs. I have overthinking habit and it triggers my emotions easily. It makes me feel irritated. I can think rationally but I cannot act it out. I cannot tell clearly what I am feeling now. I do not express my feelings to anyone and I usually cry while I am alone. Is this normal? Is there a huge probability for me to have depression?



Welcome to

I have gone through your problem. Do not be worried. For having good mental health, you need to do prayer and physical exercise every day in the morning and evening. You need to continue your daily routine with interest. You think or visualize that you are a capable, confident, and happy person. You need to share your positive things with others. If you still feel depressed or unhappy or having many negative thoughts, then you can consult a psychiatrist for having counseling. Crying alone is a negative thought and it happens in persons having mental problems.

The Probable causes:

You have frustration, conflicts, unhappy incidents, or unfulfilled desire.

Investigations to be done:

If you have depression and negative thoughts regularly, then you can consult a doctor or psychologist.

Differential diagnosis:

You seem to have depression with anxiety.

Probable diagnosis:

You seem to have depression with suicidal thoughts.

Treatment plan:

You need to consult a psychiatrist or a psychologist for treating your condition.

Preventive measures:

Do physical exercise regularly and have ventilation by sharing your feelings with your close friend.

Regarding follow up:

Have a follow-up at any time or after consulting your psychiatrist.
