Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
A person can be diagnosed with certain mental disorders (including depression) if the mental symptoms they experience significantly interfere with their life functions. Disorders of life functions that are meant here are the person being unable to work or study well, unable to socialize or establish close relationships with others properly, cannot take care of themselves properly (including also having the desire to hurt themselves or commit suicide) . If you feel that your mental symptoms are interfering with the functioning of your daily life, then you can be said to have a mental disorder. However, what mental disorder you are experiencing (whether depression or other mental disorders) must be further diagnosed using certain criteria.
If indeed you feel that your symptoms are causing significant dysfunction of life, then you are advised to do a check with a psychiatrist for further evaluation and management. However, in the corona virus pandemic as it is today, you are not advised to go to the doctor unless it is urgent. It is recommended to see a psychiatrist if you have enough suicidal thoughts or thoughts, or if your emotional condition is so unstable that it has the potential to endanger yourself or those around you. If there are no such conditions, the examination should be postponed until the virus pandemic ends.
In the meantime some things you can do:
Try to accept your condition and do not need to pretend to be ordinary in front of the people closest to you
Try to write a journal (diary) or discuss your condition with your family or people closest to you
Do your positive hobby to divert your mind from negative things
Perform routine relaxation exercises such as deep breathing exercises, yoga, or meditation
Do exercise regularly for at least 30 minutes a day
Fluoxetine is one of the hard drugs that you should not take if you have not checked yourself into a doctor. This drug has many side effects that can be dangerous if you drink it carelessly. You should also not be able to buy this medicine without a prescription from a doctor. We recommend that you do not consume this medicine if indeed you have not done a direct examination to the doctor.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
