A person who appears more than normal might actually be suffering from depression- one of the most common metal illnesses. With the advancement in the pace of life, there is a grave need for advancement in the pace of mind as well. But what we fail to recognise is that our minds can match with the advancing world, only to a certain limit, after which it breaks down. We are so busy in our lives that we fail to even acknowledge that emotions like pain, stress, suffering, anguish, mood swings for prolonged periods of time. Even if we do acknowledge them, we tend to get accommodated to living in these difficult situations. But thankfully, the truth is that all these twenty first century ailments do have a cure.

You must not skip your appointments with your shrink. Another important thing is to not to hide anything during the counselling sessions. Convey all your feelings, fears, moods, behaviour to your doctor. This would aid greatly in choosing a suitable treatment regime for you. Hiding would only worsen things.
