What can I do if my family cause stress and depression to my life all the time? My parents don't spend time with me and i always feel so alone.
Meet others: Try talking to them about this. If it doesn't help, consider finding emotional support outside your family. Do you have friends? Classmates? Co-workers?

Accepting grief: Grief is a natural reaction to loss and involves various stages: denial, bargaining, anger, depression and finally acceptance. We all go through stress when we experience loss.

This will slow your heart rate and release tension in your neck and shoulders. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
