What is the solution for sleeplessness & depression?
I am suffering from sleeplessness and depression. My symptoms.. I toss in bed a lot struggling to get sleep. Even in sleep, people beside me say i scream and yell a lot. I get unpleasant dreams a lot... they include Snakes, departing my friends, losing someone whom I like the most, deaths of my grandparents,... a lot more horrible stuff. I am suffering from this from 4 years. I even feel depressed a lot for no reason. I cry even for a small sentiment or anger. I am desperate for a solution. My age is 21, completed my engg. I am good at my academics and soon I am going to join india's largest software company. No doctor is taking this seriously because of my age. I am in desperate need for a solution. Please offer me a really good solution. I hope you understand, and if you are a doctor would you mind to contact me? If no, please feel free to write me a mail. I need a good treatment from an efficient doctor. I ensure i wont use your services for free (if anyone contacts me).

You should not have waited four years! Go to a good doctor... and if you feel that he is not doing enough... go to another one :) Exercise and spending time with family helps a lot! Best of luck!

If your doctor doesn't believe you then you need to find a different doctor and report the old one to the AMA. Find yourself a new doctor then take the Depression Quiz from the web site at www.psychcentral.com. Take the quiz, print it out and take it with you to your next doctor's visit.
