I suppose that I've dysthymia. Almost every symptom of it, described in the articles, refers to me.
I suppose I've some sort of OCD thoughts as well, but it's not very severe.
I wonder if this dysthymia can have impacted on my casual life. My nearest family tell me usually, that I've terrible personality. There are often pretty unpleasant rows at my home due to my everyday behavior, especially my mum is always unsatisfied due to it.
I've been feeling pretty unhappy recently, and deppressive. The reality of mine seems to be senseless, I miss the past (although I know that it wasn't very wonderful as well), I get sentimental about
many past things and I have strong will of being somehow ideal man, although I'm not able to be such a man.
I suffer from the social anxiety and the ulcerative colitis as well, which recently impact on my life much more than this dysthymia. And mixing these three diseases makes my life rather heavy.
I have, due to it, some question to you - is treatment (with SSRI drugs) able to change my life? It was suggested to me some time ago, but I'm still hesitating (you'll probably understand, as you're depressive as well) due to the decisiveness lack. I doubt if the psychotherapy would be anyhow effective.
Cheers to you all who read it, I hope I'll maybe get some hope...
