If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. 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. These are the complications: What Are Symptoms of Depression? According to the National Institute of Mental Health, symptoms of depression may include the following: •Difficulty concentrating, remembering details, and making decisions •Fatigue and decreased energy •Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, and/or helplessness •Feelings of hopelessness and/or pessimism •Insomnia, early-morning wakefulness, or excessive sleeping •Irritability, restlessness •Loss of interest in activities or hobbies once pleasurable, includingsex •Overeating or appetite loss •Persistent aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems that do not ease even with treatment •Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" feelings •Thoughts of suicide, suicide attempts.

You are into an anger related depression and must get help immediately. Money should never be a consideration to stop you from getting help. There are many social work organizations who can help you find the right kind of help too.

Please visit these professionals along with your parents.

Can I drink alcohol if I'm taking antidepressants? How should antidepressants be discontinued?
Drinking alcohol is not prohibited but may interact with medications you are taking and may increase their sedation and side effects on liver. Discontinuation of antidepressants has to be meticulously done according to the case history, remission of symptoms achieved etc under the close supervision of a psychiatrist only.

Organic brain syndrome (OBS),

also known as organic brain disease (OBD) Organic mental disorders organic brain disorder, is an older and nearly obsolete general term from psychiatry, referring to many physical disorders that cause impaired mental function. It does not include psychiatric disorders. Originally, the term was created to distinguish physical (termed "organic") causes of mental impairment from psychiatric (termed "functional") disorders.

Acute organic brain syndrome is (by definition) a recently appearing state of mental impairment, as a result of intoxication, drug overdose, infection, pain, and many other physical problems affecting mental status. In medical contexts, "acute" means "of recent onset. As is the case with most acute disease problems, acute organic brain syndrome is often temporary?however this is not guaranteed (a recent-onset problem may continue to be chronic or long term). A more specific medical term for the acute subset of organic brain syndromes is delirium
Chronic organic brain syndrome is long-term. For example, some forms of chronic drug or alcohol dependence can cause organic brain syndrome due to their long-lasting or permanent toxic effects on brain function.[3] Other common causes of chronic organic brain syndrome sometimes listed are the various types of dementia, which result from permanent brain damage due to strokes, Alzheimer's disease, or other damaging causes which are not reversible.

Though OBS was once a common diagnosis in the elderly, until the understanding of the various types of dementias it is related to a disease process and is not an inevitable part of aging. In some of the older literature, there was an attempt to separate organic brain syndrome from dementia, but this was related to an older world view in which dementia was thought to be a part of normal aging, and thus did not represent a special disease process. The later identification of various dementias as clear pathologies is an example of the types of pathological problems discovered to be associated with mental states, and is one of the areas which led to abandonment of all further attempts to clearly define and use OBS as a term.

Withdrawal from drugs, especially sedative hypnotics, e.G. Alcohol or benzodiazepines
Other conditions that may be related to organic brain syndrome include: clinical depression, neuroses, and psychoses, which may occur simultaneously with the OBS.

Symptoms
Symptoms of OBS vary with the disease that is responsible. However, the more common symptoms of OBS are confusion; impairment of memory, judgment, and intellectual function; and agitation. Often these symptoms are attributed to psychiatric illness, which causes a difficulty in diagnosis.

Treatment
Treatment of OBS varies with the causative disorder or disease. It is important to note that it is not a primary diagnosis and a cause needs to be sought out and treated.

Dear lybrate-user, Sorry to hear about your brothe'sr and parent's sufferings. This what happens to many families that have a person living with a mood disorder. Your brother is young and he has the whole future in his hand. Let not the mood disorder spoil it. Please know that mood disorders are treatable. The treatment may be long term mood stabilizers, antidepressants, tranquilizers, psychotherapy or a combination of all these at different times. Please have hope and continue to treat him as advised by your psychiatrist. You will be doing good not only for your brother but for the whole family including yourself. Positive results, take time because many tablets don't reach brain immediately. It takes 2-3 weeks. Doctors usually give a low dose in the beginning and then only increase the dose. The same doctor will help you out with the dose and different type of tablets at different time. Even if your brother refuses to go to doctor, you or your parents can go to him and discuss your brother's mood swings.

I am 37 years old, happily married with two kids. I am a chartered account and working in a us based mnc in delhi at a good position. I live in a joint family with my old parents. For some time now, I have been facing a problem that is bothering me big time. I can? t easily focus on something that? s written or remember it. And this has been happening for at least couple of years. For eg I work with numbers day in day out but if you ask me some information (like sales of my company for the last month) it would be extremely difficult to recollect that for me. Another example that I could give which can give you some idea is, if I am reading something, I have to put lot of focus to read it otherwise even the text becomes just an image which I can? t read properly or remember. This doesn? t mean that I can? t see properly or my eyesight is weak but somehow my mind can? t comprehend. I remember everything that I have learnt over the years but I strongly feel that I am not able to add anything to my memory for the past two years. And because I don? t remember things easily when I am interacting with colleagues/seniors, many times I end up in a situation which is embarrassing like when I have to say that let me look up into my computer and get back to you. I am not saying that I need to be a superhero with excellent memory but I wasn? t like this earlier. I am sorry I am not sure if I have able to explain my problem properly but its growing day by day. I have a paunch with waist size of 38, my height is 5? 11? and weight is 90 kgs. I drink twice a week and don? t do any exercise at all.

Temperament or personalities are just a collection of repeated and learnt behaviours that we practice right from our past. Yes it is logically difficult to change personalities but not practically impossible to control unwanted and harmful behaviours. If your temperament or personality is casing problems that become uncontrollable at your end and you wish to prevent such untoward behaviours you may consider consulting a psychiatrist for evaluation, behaviour therapies and treatment with medications if necessary.

Try to spend less time focusing on your own physical symptoms in social situations. Remember anxiety is much less visible than you imagine. Even if you are visibly anxious, it does not necessarily mean that you will be thought badly of. Anxiety is something we all experience and it does not make you unusual. Just because you feel anxious, it does not mean that you are performing poorly. Remember - you are not the central focus of everyone's attention. There are plenty of other things for people to think and talk about. Really try to concentrate on the conversation you are involved in. Don't think about how you appear or how well you are performing. Don't replay parts of the conversation in your mind, instead just focus on what is being said in the present moment. We do not need to perform perfectly or brilliantly in every social interaction we have, no-one can achieve such high standards. Don't worry too much if there are silences. Everyone has a responsibility to keep conversations going. Besides, silences are ok and do not always need filled. Just be yourself - don't 'put on a front.' Why bother when it is impossible for everyone to like us anyway. You need cognitive behavioral therapy. Also, start deep breathing exercise/ yoga/ meditation.
