Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Depression is a persistent state of sadness that is the result of interaction between one's inner biological and psychological state and gets triggered of with environmental stressors. Reactive depression is in response to a situation like loss, sickness, trauma etc. Endogenous depression occurs without any noticeable environmental stressors. Psychological symptoms include lack of interest, negative thinking, irritability, frustration, feeling demotivated etc. Somatic symptoms like fatigue/ weakness/ lack of sleep/ lack of appetite and other physical symptoms are common. Anxiety is common. In severe cases one may feel helpless and hopeless enough to wish for death or attempt suicide. Treatment includes physical and psychiatric work up following which medicines can be prescribed. In milder cases, psychotherapy or counselling is recommended.Behavioural disturbance can result from a number of psychological reasons and often similar psychological issues can manifest as different behavioural issues. Depressive thoughts may lead to quiet/ withdrawn or agitated/ aggressive behaviour. Psychotic thought process may similarly manifest as absent mindedness, self smiling, self talking, angry or irritable behaviour, poor self care etc. Mood Disorder is manifested as impulsivity, distractibility, indecisiveness, high risk behaviour, sleep disturbance etc. BAD and OCD can co exist. Psychiatric evaluation is based on history, clinical symptoms, personality factors, ongoing psychosocial stressors and frequency and severity of symptoms. It requires direct interaction with the patient on a regular basis. Once diagnosed, a management plan is formed based on intensity and frequency of symptoms and associated biological and psycho social factors. I suggest you to visit a psychiatrist in your vicinity for clinical evaluation.Please ignore first message, it was a response for another patient's question.

Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
If you let your confidence down, you will develop helplessness ehic leads to depression. Instead of worrying about your weight, take action. Seek professional help. If you feel unmotivated, meet a psychiatrist, its neither too early nor too late for professional advice.

Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Dealing with Depression- Assess your thinking pattern. Become aware of negative thought patterns. Decide to trash negative thoughts and replace them by positive thoughts. Pursue hobbies that make you happy. Manage time by making a schedule that includes physical exercises and De stress routines. Communicate your thoughts to people you are comfortable with. Accept your limitations and work on them if possible, no one is born perfect and we don't need to be perfect, we need to be adaptive.
