I feel hopeless.. What can I do? I think i need psychological support and i am afraid to ask for it..

Feel the fear and: do it anyway is the title of a book and good advice. I respect your fear but it's not helping. Please ask your doc for a referral to a mental health professional or contact your state psychological association. If someone offers medication ok, but don't use that w/out other therapy. Peace and good health. ...Read more

This sounds more like a muscle contraction headache.: At this point you need a firm diagnosis whether this is a muscle contraction headache, a sinus headache, a discogenic headache, or a migraine headache. There are some other headaches as well but for your purposes you need a more definitive diagnosis. If you are stressed in your job and workplace it certainly would suggest a muscle contraction headache. If bright lights or loud sound bothers you and you have any visual disturbance such as wiggly lines in your visual field, this could suggest a migraine. A better answer would be go to your doctor and get a definitive diagnosis. ...Read more

How do I just get over this?  One of my friends shot himself in the head and committed suicide. What could have done to help. I feel hopeless to help

Counseling, time &..: My condolences.When someone commits suicide it's common for friends & family to feel partly responsible but usually the departed was very depressed & it has little to do with others.I don't know if you or anyone could have helped if your friend didn't ask for help.Seeing a grief counselor or attending a support group can help.The passage of time will help-acute grief lasts about a year.See comment. ...Read more

I'm in college. Ever since high school, i lost interest in art, reading and everything. I feel hopeless and i don't study. Anything i can take to help?

Help for depression: I'm concerned that you've lost interest in activities you once appreciated and feel hopeless. These point to a depression that is getting in the way of your life. I wish it were easy to say take this pill. Being depressed can come from a medical problem, mood problems like depression or bipolar disorder, or drug or alcohol use. See a good, kind psychiatrist who'll take the time to work with you. ...Read more
