You need to verify this with a reliable source. If you can't, then you could be becoming paranoid. If it is true, then you must find out the truth behind why people are backbiting about you in particular. When you find out the details, then work on those issues. If there is any truth, you must inform the HR Department and have them take some action of investigation. In terms of depression you could do some of the following: You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Best ways to develop strong emotional health

Best ways to develop strong emotional health
Taking care of your body is a powerful first step towards mental and emotional health. The mind and the body are linked. For example, exercise not only strengthens our heart and lungs, but also releases endorphins, powerful chemicals that energize us and uplift our moods.

Follow these simple ways for good EQ-

1) Get enough rest: Most people need seven to eight hours of sleep each night in order to function optimally.
2) Adopt good nutrition: The more you learn about what you eat and how it affects your energy and mood, the better you can feel.
3) Exercise regularly: Exercise is a powerful antidote to stress, anxiety, and depression. Aim for atleast30 minutes of exercise per day.
4) Get a dose of sunlight: Sunlight lifts your mood, so try to get at least 10 to 15 minutes of sun per day.
5) Limit alcohol and avoid cigarettes and other drugs. These are stimulants have long-term negative consequences for mood and emotional health.

Dear , your wife has arthritis. I think the pain related to the arthritis is driving her crazy and she could not sleep. You could discuss the matter with her doctor. If the sleeplessness is due to depression and apprehension, one or two counseling should clear the problem. Please post a private question to me and I will help you. Take care.

Of course, psychoses may have the chances of genetic transmission. If your wife's other physical conditions are normal, the chances for her to carry and give birth to a child is also equal to that of normal women. But, if you are willing to dedicate and involve yourself in giving her the emotional, financial and physical support, and help her get proper psychiatric and other treatments periodically your chances of getting a normal baby is brighter. You can also use the help a" genetic counsellor" who can predict any disorders of the baby in the womb to some extent.

Dear Aakash, Constipation, loss of weight, eating less and acne may not be due to smoking alone. Please consult a doctor and get diagnosed properly. Loss of 25 kg is serious if it is not intentional. However motivate yourself to quit smoking. Usually it increases your appetite so that you eat more and put on weight.

Lybrate user, Anxiety disorder is characterised by raised heart beats, dry mouth, tremors, sweating along with other symptoms. You are describing morning worsening of symptoms. I would recommend you to consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation as anxiety like symptoms might be seen with physical ailments. Anxiety can be treated and brought under control with medicines. All the best!

My husband is 47 years old. He takes alcohol in the interval of 30-120 days. Once he starts drinking alcohol means that continues for at least one week. During this period he becomes very aggressive and out of mind and behaves almost madly. When he don't drink alcohol he is a perfect gentleman but bit short tempered. Whether this behaviour is normal? Please suggest.

If your husband loses control over his behaviour and if he is aggressive after consuming alcohol, then that is a cause of concern. He needs de-addiction treatment. Please take him to a doctor when he is sober. The doctor will prescribe some medicines for him to stay away from alcohol and also to treat withdrawal symptoms if any. He needs medical and emotional support.

How to Spot Warning Signs of Silent Domestic Abuse

MBBS, Diploma in Psychological Medicine
Sexologist, Pune
How to Spot Warning Signs of Silent Domestic Abuse

As much as we would like to ignore it, domestic abuse is a very common problem. Not every woman has the strength to fight against it and confide in someone. As a friend, it is your duty to look out for them. You don’t have to be an expert in psychology to know the warning signs of domestic violence. Here are 8 such warning signs.

  1. She is quiet when he is around: If your friend is normally jovial and suddenly becomes quiet the moment her partner is around, don’t overlook the change. She may be scared of saying something that might upset him and start a fight.
  2. She allows herself to be put down: In almost all cases of domestic violence, the woman is made to feel guilty about everything. This becomes habit and she loses her will to fight back. If you notice you’re friend allowing her partner to walk over her and put her down, she may be facing abuse at home.
  3. She withdraws from friends and family: Social withdrawal is another major sign of domestic violence. There may be a number of reasons for this; he is too possessive of her, she is injured and scared of letting people see her injuries etc.
  4. Unexplained injuries: Making an excuse that walking into a door caused a black eye isn’t only a scene from the movies. If your friend suddenly starts wearing inappropriate clothes such as long sleeved tops in summer, she may be a victim of domestic abuse. Look out for such excuses and injuries.
  5. Plans that are frequently cancelled at the last moment: Victims of domestic abuse often make plans, but never keep them. This could be because their partner does not like them going out without them or because she is injured and doesn’t want you to see her injuries.
  6. She has casually mentioned violent behavior, but dismissed it lightly: Casually mentioning violent behavior at home could be your friend’s way of trying to tell you that something is wrong. We fear being judged and hence it is sometimes very difficult to speak openly about facing domestic abuse. If you feel a friend is being domestically abused, encourage her to share her problems with you.
  7. Her finances and personal choices are not controlled by her: Domestic abuse victims usually have most of their lives controlled by their partners. This includes finances, choice of clothing, social attendance etc.
  8. The children seem nervous and frequently upset: Children may not say much, but notice a lot. Even if they are not abused, seeing their mother hurt can affect a child and make them moody, withdrawn and upset. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Psychological problems range from adjustment disorders to severe psychiatric illnesses. From what you you have described it can be a psychological problem. Consult your doctor for detail evaluation of your symptoms. You may require medicines. At least start doing exercise - morning walk, listening to music and meditation techniques.

Hi. I'm sorry to hear about your mother. From what you describe, she seems to be suffering from mental illness, the nature of which can only be clearly ascertained after detailed evaluation. Many people suffering from mental illness are resistant to visiting doctors, and families are often not able to force them to consult a doctor, leading to a delay in commencement of care, and consequent long term damage. I would suggest you to take the assistance of the local police for escorting her to a psychiatrist. Another option is to contact your local hospital's psychiatry department. Many hospitals (especially government run mental health institutions, such as ihbas, in delhi) have mobile mental health units for this very purpose. Take care.

Headache indicates that you either not understanding the concept or are studying under pressure of other subjects. Try to plan your day and make a time table. Reading aloud and making notes can help you memorize. At the same time try to get up early and do morning walk and pranayam. It will have a miraculous effect in you concentration. You can try a ayurvedic brain tonics dimaghi of hamdard. It can help too.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Social anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

HI, It is great you have identified your problem your self. All you have to do is slowly start moving around during your work time. Take time out and walk, cycle, skip rope for 30 minutes a day. Remember being active is a conscious decision, start less using your bike, start using mobile apps to record your number of steps per day and slowly try to increase them. Movement is life.

Dear lybrate-user, during an episode of mania, you tend to lose insight. You believe that you are normal and others are trying to label you. During manic phase, you may lose name, fame, prestige and money. That is why you were admitted for treatment. Since bpad is a chronically recurring disease, you are continuously given lithosun s r as mood stabiliser. If you stop the medicines, you may get another manic attack which is costly needing admission. If you continue with lithosun regularly during normal phase also, your manic attack will be mild and only for few days which can be treated with arip and pacitane. Of course drugs do have side effects like weight increase and sexual power problems. But think of the effect of the drug in reducing the burden of mania. If you are still concerned about side effects, do not stop lithosun, talk to your doctor. He will reduce the dose or change the drug or add another drug to control side effects. He has already seem to have stopped diva considering your weight. Sexual power may be due to your mood rather than side effect of lithosun.
