    Hi ravindra0 - have you discussed what you are feeling with your doctor? That's the place to start. You can also seek help with your drinking if you are unable to give it up yourself. Alcohol will exacerbate depression. You have several good reasons to give it up - the physical medical situation you are in, your mental health, your family and your friends. You will need to take action to make a change, and it will take some self discipline. Go for it.

    Hi ravindra0500 - have you told your doctor how you are feeling? Alcohol is a depressant and will exacerbate a mental illness. You have several solid reasons to give it up - the physical medical situation you find yourself in, the symptoms of depression, your family and your friends. If you find it difficult to quit there are groups you can access to help you - your doc can help you with that too.  Change takes determination and self discipline, you have to want it.

    Talk to and explain your fear with your family doctor, it sounds like you need some hands on support.

    You mention drinking, depending on how much you drink this can cause Gastritis and it also may have caused you to suffer low mood, it may be an idea to stop or reduce your drinking. Many people who drunk to much may feel negative regards their mental health problems, especially if you are drinking to forget life problems. I never drink when depressed, it seems to make negative feelings worse

    It sounds like you are experiencing side effects from the mess they gave you. I think you may be traumatised from the gastritis?? 

    Depression is horrible and the sad part is not many people understand. ONLY someone who has major depressive disorder will understand the depths of despair you are truly in. Have you tried talking to your loved ones perhaps? Professional help has never helped me. I need very very good professionals to help with my depression as I have panic attacks and anxiety also paranoia too. I'd like to know more about your experience. Are you productive daily? If so that is s good sign but should not avoid getting help because if it gets to a point where you cannot be helped like me then that's bad . Talk to someone. I understand if you want to talk.?? Take care
