    Antisocial business graduate with 6 years of depression

    I graduated in business studies with distinction and had a bronze medal... but couldn’t do a job as my mother had a dream that doing job won’t be good for me(I’m a girl, who belongs to a conservative muslim family and it’s compulsory to obey our parents) in the mean time my mother had the hysterectomy and i had to lookafter her and the house. But i felt and still feel like a loser who only got a degree to get married with someone who is well setteled( which is not true)and it’s been 6 years and I can’t feel like I’ve accomplished anything, if semebody asks me about my studies then i feel annoyed and dont want to tell them that I’m a graduate... i just want to tell them that i never went to school to avoid the next question( where are you working nowadays). When i see my friends doing great in their careers i feel unaccomplished and disturbed. I never was an antisocial person but now i am, i don’t want to go out or meet people, i don’t talk to my friends and even on my low days I don’t want to leave my bed or do anything. I don’t want to complain and be thankless as My parents have provided me with every possible facility but deep inside i long for my career too.

    RE: Antisocial business graduate with 6 years of depression

    You sound like you are suffering from depression. The symptoms of depression are:
    - Trouble concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions
    - Fatigue
    - Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and helplessness
    - Pessimism and hopelessness
    - Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or sleeping too much
    - Irritability
    - Restlessness
    - Loss of interest in things once pleasurable, including sex
    - Overeating, or appetite loss
    - Aches, pains, headaches, or cramps that won't go away
    - Digestive problems that don't get better, even with treatment
    - Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings
    - Suicidal thoughts or attempts

    Having 4 or more of these symptoms for 80% of the time in any period lasting more than 3 weeks, means you will be diagnosed with clinical depression.

    I am unsure how your religion deals with this illness. The very best advice would be to visit a primary care doctor of your faith and get a full examine with blood work to rule out any of many often serious psychical disorders that can cause these symptoms. If that comes back clean, you should ask for a referral to a muslim therapist to help your deal with your circumstances. Out of respect for your religion, I think ordinary cognitive behavioral therapy while effective perhaps with anti-depressant med may be indicated, you need to seek treatment within your beliefs....but, please, seek treatment.

    It seems to me like it's just impossible to take care of business with such a disorder. I mean, business is all about networking, social life. As a business owner, you need to communicate a lot. There are some things that you can do online, for example, I've been ordering branded items from http://www.profilepromotions.co.uk just today. But in most cases, you need to deal with real people standing near to you.
