If both the doctors fail to cure you even after a year has passed, then you might have to look for some alternative ways. These include going to the gym and the library, and performing regular meditations. Similarly, spending quality time with your parents, spouse, children and loved ones might prove to be quite a healing touch for your character.

Then there are issues related to alcohol or drugs, which could have been easily avoided in the first place.

This usually happens when you are mentally affected by an incident like your loved ones getting killed, etc. In those cases, doctors won’t be of any help.
