self conversation

Sir,

I am a 3rd year engineering student with a very bright academic record.
i have basically two worries about myself...

1.I am very moody and sometimes i talk a lot and sometimes dont like to even say hi to friends and i dont see any particular reason for it..it sometimes affect my image in the public and they feel i am an egoist but the truth is otherwise...the people who know me actully know that i underestimate myself...

2.I talk to myself a lot and that conversation doesn't seem to stop easily...i kind of always suggest myself that you should be doing this..you should be doing that and lately i have started smoking to get rid of this problem but only when i smoke i feel ligher otherwise its the same condition...


so i would be very helpful to you if you can suggest me some remedy for these problems ..i must tell you that i already had a very bad depression phase and i had almost  6 months of treatment from a professional psychologist but right now i am not taking any medicines...

hoping to get a positive reply..

Thanks.

hi,this could be simple depression or bipolar disorder(maniac depressive).

We all have bit of moody or eccentric phases in our lives but when the phase affects routine life or make you feel uncomfortable,it is disease and should be treated.

Please consult Psychiatrist for proper evaluation.

Hi,
I want to let you know that we have a son who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia.   He is now 24, but his symptoms started when he was in college at the age of 20.  At first he was diagnosed with bi-polar, but things got worse.  I can not get into everything he and our family has been through, it will take a book to read everything.  What I do want to advise you to do,  is to see a physciatrist or even go to a crisis center and get evaluated.  I am NOT saying you have shizophrenia!  I only know that our son went through so much and your symptoms are some of them.  What a blessing you are to even "admit" that you are having symptoms, it took 2 and 1/2 years for  our son to admit he even had a mental illness and now he is on his meds. and doing so good.
God Bless,
PAB

Hello. Navneet.

How are you now ? I can't see any reply from your side here.

Can you mention which medicine you were taking ? Your symptoms are suggesting that you may have ups and downs of your mood. And that you tend to get depressed.

The phase when you are depressed, you don't want to socialize. The opposite is true for a manic phase. But I am not sure if you have a clinically significant manic phase.

But smoking is not a solution.

Please let me know your present status. And you can ask any other queries you may have.

Regards
