Does depression turn to dysthymia?
Answer
20/10/16 8:32 AM

Hi,

     I am Cecil, staying in Toronto. For last two weeks, I am going through the worst days of my life. I had faced many problems in my life in the past, but the situation that I am in resembles hell. I don’t know what to do and where to ask for help. I was a person who used to be more social. I loved chatting with my friends and relatives. Even in between my stressful job, I used to find time in socializing. But from couple of weeks before, I found myself in a depressed state. I enquired about this to my friends, and one of them told me that, this is the starting state of depression and I need to be careful. It seems that, if I am not able to get rid of this quickly, it will turn out to be dysthymia. He also shared few of the signs and symptoms of depression http://www.drmtherapy.com/individual-therapy/depression/ . Does anyone know any treatment for this kind of depression? If I continue in this state, I am quite sure, that I will have to resign my job too. If someone over here understands my situation, please share some treatment methods. I wish I would receive few expert advices before I face any more trouble. Keep me in your prayers and support me through your suggestions.

 

Thanks in advance
