Dear Sachin. Welcome to lybrate. Depression related to lost love is pretty common. You have to accept the fact. Accepting the fact that the lost love will not come back, is the first step towards cure. Accept it. Also accept that you can do nothing about it. Slowly your emotions will die down. Don't worry. It is a matter of two or three weeks. Consult a psychologist online for counseling if need be. Take care.

I am male 30 software programmer for 3 years (and I done many jobs before), I resigned job because of low salary ,now i am depressed lost interest in everything ,i have no motivation to find another job, i am simply sitting in my home, my dream is to become financially independent so that I do not have to worry about money anymore. Most time I thing about suicide. I have no interest to continue this life. What to do? please reply.

Hello Shibin Resigning jobs, losing hope or suicide is not the answer. If you really want to be financially independent you have to work towards it. Also u need to enjoy your work, it has to give you satisfaction only then will u excel in it. Find out what interests you and then find a job relating to it. You might not find it instantly but if u see a future , stick to it and climb the ladder. If you interested in business n not job u can think on those lines. 30 is too young to die, there's a whole life full of opportunities ahead , so prove urself, for those who think u can't. Most important thing is patience, and things will improve. Sitting at home won't give u a job or money so u have to work towards it. It's not that difficult, just a matter of time. Just keep trying... like most of the people.. All the best. ! If u need help do get in touch with me.

Hello I am 23 Year old male. I used to to chew gutkha but now I want to quit it. I used to chew 20 to 30 packets a day but from last 2 days I only used 2 to 3 packets in a whole day. I do not want to chew that too but one of my friend told me that leaving completely will do side effect is this right? And the other question is that I have some white cuts or only marks on both side in my mouth. But do not have any type of pain or any difficulty in talking or eating. Do I need to worry about that or is it normal? Thank you waiting for your response.

Gutka is a substance of abuse. It is a dry preparation, that consist of betel leaf, areca nut, tobacco, catechu (extract of the acacia catechu tree) & slaked lime, with sweet or savory flavorings. Due to its stimulant activity, gutka is used as a recreational drug. As it is a harmful product & do not have any beneficial effect on the body, you better quit it as early as possible. Now-a-days de-addiction treatments are available for quitting all substances of abuse including gutka. Such treatment includes detoxification & rehabilitation program. Consult a psychiatrist & start your treatment at the earliest. With treatment you can quit the gutka immediately & you will not require the gradual reduction of the quantity of gutka, as advised by your friend. Medical detoxification is the first stage of de addiction treatment, when the addicted person is treated with medicines. The withdrawal symptoms which occur on sudden stopping of an addictive substance are managed through detox treatment. Medical detoxification systematically and safely will withdraw you from the gutka. The next phase is the Rehabilitation program which includes counseling sessions & other behavioral therapies. These sessions have important role in the de addiction process. Counseling sessions will help to enhance your motivation skills to stay sober, build skills to resist gutka use, replace gutka-using activities with constructive and rewarding non gutka-using activities, and improve problem-solving abilities. Behavioral therapy will work on interpersonal relationships and your ability to function effectively in the family and community. Detoxification is usually completed within 7-10 days & can be done both on out patient basis & as in patient. Rehabilitation program usually ranges between 30-90 days. Along with, mentally prepare yourself to stay away from gutka. Following measures will help you to prepare yourself mentally against the substance: oEducate yourself adequately regarding gutka & its ill effects. Acquire the required information by reading books, going through internet or talking to a professional trained in de addiction. OKeep reminding yourself of the benefits you will achieve after quitting gutka: After quitting you will have reduced risk of the many diseases caused by gutka including oral cancer and a variety of other medical conditions like heart attack, respiratory, cardiac depression, hypertension, reproductive health dysfunction etc. Your teeth will be saved from the unpleasant stains. Your mouth will be saved from the bad odor caused by gutka. Any sores or ulcers in your mouth will heal well. You can focus more on your relationships. Taking gutka might have affected your relations if your close ones were against it, or because you were so preoccupied with the substance, your relations suffered. You can participate actively in social gatherings as you will not have to stay away to hide your habit nor have to come out frequently to chew gutka. You will save the money you were wasting on gutka & use them for better purposes. OImagine & create a picture of a beautiful future in your mind of a life without gutka. Imagine how much you will benefit in your new life. In between your beautiful imaginary picture also imagine that you started to take gutka again. Then imagine how one by one the beautiful picture will shatter. Once you become aware of the consequences of relapse, you will also develop fear of relapsing. You will then stay more cautious not to start it again. OCount the first day of your quitting as day of a new start & from that day, live one day at a time. It is helpful if you can relate this day to some important events in your life like your birthday or birthday of someone close, anniversary, day of some achievements etc. On the morning of the second day, tell yourself that you are starting the second day of your substance free life & by night time thank yourself that you stayed substance free whole day & encourage yourself to stay gutka free in coming days too. Celebrate your victory of staying sober on completing 1 week, 2 weeks, then 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, and on completing one year celebrate the first birthday of your sobriety. This will encourage you to stay sober further. OAvoid triggering factors that may tempt you to take gutka. For example if the triggering factor was internal say some stress for which you got inclined to abusing substance, then work on the stress to remove it or take help of a counselor to overcome the stress. If the triggering was external, like some friends persuaded initially & you could not say no, in some specific event or situation you started taking gutka etc, then stay away from those situation. OImmediately after quitting, craving will be intense. But gradually with time it will reduce. So the initial days you have to be very careful. Keep yourself busy & diverted. OThrow away all gutka you have with you. Having them within reach may increase your temptation. You can use alternatives like lozenges or chewing gum. OStart new healthy habits & opt for a healthy lifestyle. OEat healthy diet. OJoin a support group comprising of people who came out of addiction & had undergone the same situation as you. You will get a platform to discuss your queries & together can motivate each other to stay sober & also help others to overcome addiction. Start your effort to quit gutka at the earliest. All the best. Regarding the white marks on your mouth, get yourself examined by a doctor. He will advice you the necessary investigations & give treatment if required.

Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. They need to be brought for de addiction which involves. On a longer run can also produce anxiety and negative thoughts, like in your case. You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction. All the best.

You should meet with a counselor and get some help with your emotions and how to deal with them. For your sleep problem please follow the recommendations mentioned below: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

I hate to say this, but a proper solution always comes after a proper evaluation. In your case, we need to confirm that your diagnosis is indeed depression. Next we have to determine if the headache is a part of depression, some other medical illness or a side effect of escitalopram. Based on this analysis, further management can be suggested. It is possible to treat depression based on scientifically proven and established methods without the use of medicines as well. Take care!

I always think of past and can't concentrate in present frequent mood swings and always in depression and putting on weight. Is this a psychological problems.

Psychologist, Pune
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, nice of you to write about the issues you are facing. Life is a beautiful gift enjoy it fully appreciate all that's going on around you. Be a witness to all of life's moment s, if you focus on the past remember you cannot undo what's already done. In the same way if you focus on the future you do not know what will come to pass. Rather it's better to live in the moment and enjoy it fully. Take some time out for yourself and try to figure out your goals (short term and long term). Live your life by your own goals. Be open to all the opportunities that come your way, view all the obstacles as areas where you can learn and grow. Remember it's all the challenges that you face and meet that that will make you grow. Wishing you all the best! sajen john.

6 Bodily Pains You Must Never Ever Ignore

6 Bodily Pains You Must Never Ever Ignore

6 Bodily Pains You Must Never Ignore

Any pain in the body is an indication and demands attention. Some pains go away by themselves or by home treatment, while few need medical attention. 

Here are 6 types of pains which should never be ignored.

  1. Chest Pain - Chest pain that doesn't go away and is accompanied by shortness of breath can prove to be fatal if not treated at the earliest. Do not wait for it to subside, nor should you try self medication. Consult the doctor immediately.
  2. Abdominal Pain - While abdominal pain could be because of various smaller reasons, if it is unbearable, consult a doctor at the earliest. This pain could be because of ruptured appendix, stomach ulcer, problems in your pancreas or gallbladder or even intestinal blockages.
  3. Severe Headache - Normally we tend to take headaches lightly, believing that all we need to do is pop a medicine or rest it out. However, if the pain is excruciating, consult the doctor as soon as possible.
  4. Prolonged Backache - If you are experiencing pain in the back with tingling in your toes, this could be associated with your discs. Give it medical attention at the earliest, as it could turn fatal.
  5. Lower Abdomen  - Appendicitis' indicator is sharp pain on the side. If you feel a sharp pain in your lower abdomen on the right side along with symptoms like nausea, vomiting, fever, shaking, constipation and diarrhea, reach out for medical assistance as soon as possible.
  6. Leg Pain - Yet another pain one should not ignore is deep vein thrombosis which is blood clots in the legs? deep veins.
