Dr. Dombeck , I have been complaining of a cyclical depressed mode since childhood , (i am 25 years old now married male), every 2 or 3 years I have a an attack of depressed mode for about a year duration. I am a GP , my symptoms start insidiously and become stationary for a hole year with intolerable depressive thoughts , sometimes suicidal thoughts, and in many events i experienced hearing incomprehensible sounds buzzing in my ears (experienced more during stress). until now I do not know any aggravating or relifing factors. I am not on any medications,have no allergies, and have never smoked drinked or used drugs. I was an abused child during the period from 6 to 12 years of age. i have no surgical or medical history. i have a family history of 4 similar conditions. (my older brother and sister and 2 of my uncles). no one seeked medical advice but me -through this message- one symptom which I doubt it is relevant is having a notable difficulty in making decisions,another is having anxiety provoked diarrhea. would you guide me out this darkness ?
