“I am a university student in the last year, I love loneliness and isolation, and I always feel that my role in life is marginalized, and that prompted me to go to a psychiatrist who diagnosed me with depression and advised me on some medications, which I took for ten days, but my condition did not improve, and this also made my father always calibrate me I take psychotherapy drugs as if I were a crazy person, but what puzzles me now is, is the doctor’s diagnosis wrong, and should I go to another doctor? Knowing that I haven’t left the house for several months because of my bad condition, I hate life. I hope for help and advice.”
Dear reader, we presented your problem to Dr. Raymond Michel Thabet, a mental health consultant, who told you: “At the beginning, I am glad that you have continued your studies to the university stage and that you are in your final year. Those around you did not allow their abilities or their special circumstances to complete the university education stage, despite its importance. One of the main important components of the human personality is the element of will in exchange for despair and defeat, and I think that you have triumphed so far by reaching the last step of your university studies, so congratulations to you.
There are basic psychological components that move a person’s personality, which are three: thought, feelings, and behavior. Every thought we think about leads us to specific feelings, then our feelings are translated into behavior. Psychological medications for depression do not change a person’s thought or behavior, but they improve the general mood of the individual, thus preparing him for it. The way to think differently, by adjusting neurotransmitters for a person’s mood, is all that depression medication does.
We do not judge the medication to fail during the two-week period, because that period is when the process of chemical construction of the treatment takes place and the mood will gradually improve after that period. You, which usually change after the second week of taking the drug, so please follow up with your doctor.
Science has proven that God has established special faculties and advantages for each person separately, their types have multiplied and talk about them has increased, so the idea of multiple intelligences appeared, so the concept of intelligence and ability is no longer limited to mental and mathematical skills only, and I tell you that whoever does not discover the advantages of himself cannot determine his role in life Therefore, you have described yourself as weak and marginalized because you have not yet discovered your capabilities.-
And I am confident, my brother, that even if depression overpowers you, it will not defeat you. This is not the end of life. Even if you take psychiatric medications, it does not cause you distress. Absolute lack of faith, everyone is subject to this, so is someone else calibrated if he has heart or kidney disease? You should not imprison yourself between the walls of your room and expect life to evaluate you.--
Therefore, we believe that it is necessary for you to review your psychiatrist again and ask him about the nature of treatment and how it works in order to explain the matter to you in a simple way.
We always say and advise, “Change your thought so that your action changes.” Therefore, you have to talk with someone whose ideas you trust, or with a doctor or psychotherapist to reorganize your thoughts again and help you overcome your negative feelings. You need to re-evaluate yourself, and you need to practice simple exercises in The beginning because it improves your mood and expels negative energies, and make sure to socialize with others, and remember that God is close to everyone who prays to Him, so ask Him in your prayers constantly and pray for Him to help you, and you will be in a better position, God willing.
