Thank you for writing to us.
Depression is nothing top embarrassed about. Depression is an illness that can be considered organic in some cases. Organic means that there is a physical cause that causes you to get depressed.
You should talk to a Doctor who will refer you to a Psychiatrist. The Psychiatrist will assess you by talking to you and reaching a conclusion.
After this, he/she will start you on anti-depressants which will help you feel better.
Hope this helps you. Wish you a speedy recovery.
