27 years old male from Mangalore asked
I forget something always depressed please help me sometimes suicide idea would come but I can not leave my family members alone.
You are into an anger related depression. 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 nightâs 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. Donât 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.
17 years old male from Hyderabad asked
Sir I have anxiety. Please help me how to reduce anxiety. Whenever anxiety comes I'm feeling to pass motion urgently.
At your age this is rather serious, meaning that this could be a sign of something important to take care of. There is the problem of hormonal imbalances and as well as some unresolved issues from childhood. A counselor will definitely help. Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.
33 years old male from Mumbai asked
Hi I want to know one thing and that is I have one family member who is 18 years old and does not have any friend and he does not like to talk with anyone occasionally, he also feels like he is in depression, he does not went outside from his house and he stays at his house almost whole day so sometimes he also takes the snaps of bad things etc. He also do takes the snaps of his house labours and the snaps of the roads. When we all asked him the reason behind all of these things then he simple says like this I always live inside in my house, I does not go outside at any point of time, so now I want to know that does all these things (behaviours) of my that family member are normal or not, the actual reason for this behaviour can be because my that family member lives almost in house (does not went outside, lack of having friends. Or not.
I don't think it is lybrate-user simple as that. Due to his age, it is very likely that there is some connection to events in his childhood or genes that has to be investigated. This can be ideally processed by a counselor and if that person thinks that he needs medical help then s/he may recommend a doctor. Then he would need to cooperate with both therapies for the best results. Anyway, in life we must follow these three important rules: Always Be responsible with everything we say and do; Always Be respectful with everything we say and do; and always be function with what we do. He is defaulting in all three.
25 years old male from Chennai asked
I was in a relationship with a girl for 15 months one of the best time we had, we both love each other, both work in same company, same team but due to religious difference we couldn't continue but I can't live without her so can't she, Itz been over a month since we broke up but we can't get over each other. I can't live without her I want to die, I can't live without seeing her, I can't sleep, I don't know what to do, she is also suffering that is the worst.
If all this is leading to a life-threatening situation, you can both inform your parents that the choice they have left you with is that you will be dead if not allowed to marry and alive if allowed. Let them know the seriousness of the situation. In the meantime do not do anything silly: life is extremely precious and nobody is worth dying for. So think logically that even if they still do not agree, it is not the end of the world. If you two truly love each other, you can both refuse the proposals brought by your parents until you are allowed to marry. But both must be on the same page.
20 years old male from Kolkata asked
There are two types of passive smoking as it is called: the side-stream smoke and the second hand smoke. The former is the smoke that emanates from a burning cigarette and is not filtered as it comes directly from an idly held cigarette when a smoker holds his cigarette waiting to take the next puff. The second hand smoke is not only filtered but has gone through the respiratory system and is exhaled after much of the substances are absorbed by the smoker. It is still very harmful to the non-smoker. Tobacco smoke inside a room tends to hang in mid-air rather than disperse. Hot smoke rises, but tobacco smoke cools rapidly, which stops its upward climb. Since the smoke is heavier than the air, the smoke starts to descend. Tobacco smoke contains around 7,000 chemicals, made up of particles and gases, over 50 of which are known to cause cancer. Second-hand smoke has been confirmed as a cause of lung cancer in humans by several leading health authorities. Compounds such as ammonia, sulphur and formaldehyde irritate the eyes, nose, throat and lungs. These compounds are especially harmful to people with respiratory conditions such as bronchitis or asthma. Exposure to second-hand smoke can either trigger or worsen symptoms. Pregnant women and unborn babies: Australian data indicates that about 12 per cent of women smoke during pregnancy. Both smoking and passive smoking can seriously affect the developing fetus: miscarriage and stillbirth, premature birth and low birth weight, sudden unexpected death in infants (SUDI), which includes sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and fatal sleep accidents, complications during birth. A non-smoking pregnant woman is more likely to give birth earlier, and to a baby with a slightly lower birth weight if she is exposed to second-hand smoke in the home â for example, if her partner smokes. Children: Children are especially vulnerable to the damaging effects of second-hand smoke: Passive smoking is a cause of sudden unexpected death in infants (SUDI), which includes sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and fatal sleep accidents. A child who lives in a smoking household for the first 18 months of their life has an increased risk of developing a range of respiratory illnesses, including bronchitis, bronchiolitis and pneumonia. They are also more prone to getting colds, coughs and glue ear (middle ear infections). Their lungs show a reduced ability to function and slower growth. A child is more likely to develop asthma symptoms, have more asthma attacks and use asthma medications more often and for a longer period. School-aged children of people who smoke are more likely to have symptoms such as cough, phlegm, wheeze and breathlessness. Children of people who smoke have an increased risk of meningococcal disease, which can sometimes cause death or disability. Partners: People who have never smoked who live with people who do smoke are at increased risk: Passive smoking increases the risk of heart disease. There is consistent evidence that people who do not smoke, who live in a smoky household, have higher risks of coronary heart disease than those who do not. Passive smoking makes the blood more âstickyâ and likely to clot, thereby leading to increased risk of various health conditions, including heart attack and stroke. There is evidence that passive smoking is associated with lower levels of antioxidant vitamins in the blood. Just 30 minutes of exposure to second-hand smoke can affect how your blood vessels regulate blood flow, to a similar degree to that seen in people who smoke. Long-term exposure to passive smoking may lead to the development of atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries). People who do not smoke who suffer long-term exposure to second-hand smoke have a 20 to 30 per cent higher risk of developing lung cancer. There is increasing evidence that passive smoking can increase the risk of stroke, nasal sinus cancer, throat cancer, breast cancer, long- and short-term respiratory symptoms, loss of lung function, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease among people who do not smoke.

Hi sir/mam I im in need of a psychologist as I have no interest in live right now I am in a heavy and last stage of mental depression.
You are in an anger related depression and will feel quite hopeless. Life is very precious and every effort must be made to save it. Your desire to not live is a temporary phase but can be very difficult. So 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.

Hello sir, Am only of 16, years but hav voice like 40-50, years old men. Very heavy and vibrated. Am suffering from this by nov. 2015. I want to be a gud singer but voice stopping and decreasing my confidence. please help me to improve and thin my voice acc. To my age.
You cannot change your voice from deep to high. In fact deep voices are much looked up to in society fro many reasons. You could cultivate your voice for this pitch and get into another genre of music. So, go for good voice training to groom your deep voice gift and make the most of an envious voice really.
27 years old male from Indore asked
I am suffering frm stammering prob since 8 year .meri saans ruk jati h n force lagana padta h word bone k lye. Even I can't speak name of my father Lalit .plz give me proper treatment or yoga exercises thanks.
Yoga is excellent. You have a problem with fear. The fear has to do with people and more so if they are people in authority. If you deal with that fear, then a lot of your stammering will stop. Talk to a counselor and sort that out. There will still be a residue affect left because of pure habit. This can be resolved by some exercises, which should begin with real earnest right away. Practice speaking aloud in a closed room, but this time, choose words for which your stammer is most. Also practice singing sentences but ending the last word as a statement that is read. Next time end with two words stated, then three words etc. The lip exercise: with tight pressure press and roll the tip of your tongue against the edge of your lips, clockwise first and then anticlockwise, as many times as you possibly can. Purse your lips into an âOâ and withdraw it back stretching it like when you say an âEâ, several times a day. Drop your lower jaw and flip it left to right and right to left, as many times as you can to loosen it. Practice making a resonating sound by increasing and decreasing the volume within the same breath. Sing the vowels A, E, I, O, U stretching each vowel as much as you can.
31 years old female from Delhi asked
I talk very loudly. People say I talk as if giving lectures. I have 40 decibels conductive hearing loss n both ears but I am able to manage it. I have issue only when people talking very softly. Pls guide.
Other people talking is not yoru problem: you say that people's observation is that you speak loudly. It is definitely coming from your own hearing loss whereby you have not accurate feedback mechanism to know your volume and to make necessary corrections. Now that you know about this is it possible to speak in a volume that is less audible to you but that you know it is sufficient to the hearing level of the other people. With time and practice you will be able to master this technique.
27 years old female from West Godavari asked
I am 27 year old female, got married at 22 after my btech. I am in psychological trauma due to so many issues happening with my life. I read and knew we have all the power to create anything or any situation favour to us. I am in deep sorrow for not happening things in favour to me at proper time. I get some suicidal thoughts but I have not courage. My husband almost left 2 kids to me, I am afraid of tomorrow. I either have no courage toto get divorce, or I can't stay alone. I am an optimistic person but it is not reliable to me. I don't have emotional security or any other relationships to cope up.
Breaking up is very difficult and if you don't have any backup plan it can be even more taxing. However, you cannot allow these limitations stop you, if this step is inevitable. There are a lot of people who will support you but you will have to gauge their motives. Where is your family of origin? They are the best support you can get because they can be relied on more than anyone else. If you are without friends that speaks volumes about your social skills and perhaps you will need to develop them to favour a good support system. Through all this you must remember that if it is so difficult for the adults, how much more harder will it be for the kids. So you will need to take the drastic step but make it with proper considerations. Many of us will not dare due to a lot of unnecessary speculation. But when the decision and action is taken, you will mostly fall in line. Hurting yourself is rather silly: no man is worth dying for!!!
19 years old female asked
I've noticed a developing tremor in my left arm over the last month that I've never had before, and it can get distracting enough to prevent daily tasks such as making coffee without spilks, and I've had a verbal stammering and stuttering problem. It's not severe, but I've become easily annoyed by small, simple tasks in my life and I'm uncertain what caused the onset. Is this an immediate concern, or one I can consult my family doctor about?
You must consult your doctor. These are not normal symptoms. Apart from the doctor please do meet with a counselor. At your age a lot of things could happen around hormonal imbalances and also from developmental issues that will come up for the last time seeking a resolution. Together they can compound matters to make you feel disturbed. But whatever the case tumors must never be neglected.
21 years old female from Delhi asked
I have a fear of haircuts, I can't get one and can't see others having the same. The feeling of water sprayed or someone touching or combing my hair terrifies me. I don't lik people around me saying about the health or personal problem of girls. These things depress me alot and make me go cry. Whensoever some speaks it makes an awkward feeling in my body. What can I do? These things are dominating my life .I don't think if I will ever be able to marry in my life. I can't tell my parents or anyone about this. I have fear .I fear.
You are very sensitive and there is a fear based disturbance that can cause a bit of havoc. The haircuts, water falling on you, and any discussions of others can cause problems just because of this fear which has made you intolerant. Meet with a counselor and after you are well dealt with the fear, a lot of these sensitivities will disappear.

You must meet with a counselor and a doctor immediately to rule out any serious issue. Although these signs are not looking good. You must continue with the counseling for a long time and do not self-regulate your medication. If you respond well to the treatment, you should be well on yoru way to recovery due to your age and commitment. Please take your parents along and let them share whatever they remember about your early childhood.
60 years old female from Mumbai asked
Hello doctor, my aunt is suffering from a mental illness. She blabbers loudly throughout the day, she feels she is superior to all and everyone is trying to get her down. She is highly superstitious. She also gets hallucination and trust only people who praise her. She has immense amount of energy compared to a women of age of 55. What kind of syndrome is this? What can be possible treatment as it is very difficult to take her to a doctor whole day she keeps on screaming loudly in house please help.
Because of the loud shouting you should take her to a doctor and perhaps a short hospitalization too. She is displaying some typical signs of psychosis and this condition can only get worse if neglected. Yes, she can become really very strong and have immense energy in this stage. If she is not cooperative, the doctor may be willing to give you medicines that can be surreptitiously slipped into her food or drink and make her more amenable to therapy. Whatever your difficulty, you have to get her medical and counseling help, and soon too.

33 years old male from Guna asked
The bipolar is a mood disorder particularly to do with anger. The OCD on the other hand has its basis in fear. It will be good to explore these emotions through therapy and get the support you need to remain stable. The combination is not really easy to deal. So you need to work with a counselor and a doctor to get the best results. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. For the OCD it is a fear-based condition and for some reason you have not been dealing with this childhood fear which has now developed unto these repetitive adaptations to seem to need it for normal functioning. The behavior will then become based on magical thinking and certain rituals will become necessary to do normal things making you believe that either the frequency or the ritual is important to its success. This of course is a fallacy but there will come a time that even if told the truth, your belief will defy any logic and you will continue behaving like that even if it cripples you in your daily routines. It only appears as though some other force is behind these behaviors and that you are compelled to act in this fashion. That is obviously not true but no one can convince you of anything different. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern with no meaningful outcome; and the compulsiveness is the need to act on those obsessions also in a repeated behavior pattern as though you just cannot help yourself, like the plucking off of your hair. There are certain behavioral techniques to be implemented and if they work you may get out of this condition rather easily. If that does not work as desired, then medication has to be introduced, and in combination with counseling much work can be achieved.

Mene 8 days pehle smoking quit krdi h fir bhi meri stamina kam hi h & ab heart attack ka chance kam bhi ho gya h na?
Yes, you have saved yourself well in time that you can recover from all the damages from the smoking you have indulged in so far. Stamina will come along if you exercise gradually increasing the length of the work out. Breathe through your nostrils only when exercising and do mostly aerobic exercises. Congratulations for your excellent decision and keep it up for life.

29 years old male from Hyderabad asked
My wife deceased due to delivery complication (brain stroke) and she died by giving birth to a baby girl, from that time and At present my daughter (1 year) was staying near my in-laws and they are not giving my child back to my house, where my mother can look after my daughter. I want the suggestion that should I bring back my child or leave at my in-laws place, please suggest the Right decision to take and help me.
If that child is happy there I would not want to disturb this arrangement. But your daughter must have a lot of contact with you and that should never be curbed for any reason. Meeting with your mother is also okay but not to force any compliance from your in-laws. If they ever make these difficult, then you could approach the courts for a ruling. In all this try your best never to make your child into a ping-pong ball but make your contact with ehr memorable and plenty.

Doctor my girlfriend does not have mom from the birth time and she crys every night when we used to walk together and talk she used to be happy but my parents knows about her and my father bad me so badly so I cannot meet her and my mom says me because she is from different religion what should I do and doctor she is very nice to me but I gets angry very quickly I have a lots of ego and attitude doctor we love each other what should I do and she always comes in my dream I always miss her 25 december was her happy she was so happy that I meet her she gave me a hug to but my parents does not like it because she is from different religion what should I do doctor she always crys in the night I hope you understand how she feels without a mom she crys alot which makes me sad what to do?
If you are loving this girl out of pity and want her because you feel so sorry for her, then that is not a good reason to continue with her. If she misses her mother, she can meet with a counselor and get a lot of help to sort out her issues. You will also need to attend to your anger issues with a counselor. Do not worry about your parents as yet, because you are too young to marry and you will have to do a lot of things to become settled in your job etc. Having a girlfriend is not wrong, and even if she is from another religion. Time is a great leveller and only when the time is right you need to reveal your plans to your parents. It is ideal if you marry within your own religion but it is not mandatory. But people and your parents too can all twisted up in this area and cause a lot of distress both for themselves and for both of you when the time comes.
