I am not able to stop thinking, worrying too much. Want to talk many things to someone but not able to trust anyone. Not able to sleep properly, causing headache, anxiety and weakness. I never discussed" my personal life, what I think" with anyone before 3 moths ago. Three months ago, for the first time I tried discussing my life problems with someone I trusted in my life and I cried a lot (after 6 years) and felt too comfortable for almost a week, I got some other situations and thought of discussing the same but I got a reply" you always need reasons to cry" and afterwards not being able to communicate anything to anyone, even general talk seems impossible with friends and colleagues. Always feel alone in spite of sitting in a group of people. Thoughts usually trigger in my mind and pump up my heartbeats and my hands temp starts decreasing and I feel little shivering. I wasn't an Emotional person since 5 months ago but now I am crying almost 8-10 hrs a day sitting alone in my room. Situation is getting worse that I have started hurting myself (cuts on body) to divert the pain, overdose of medicine to sleep, attempt to quit etc. Want to run somewhere far far from this world. My close friends got to know regarding my depression but I am not able to convey my situation to them (i don't feel comfortable explaining my situations to them and also somewhere in mind I have trust issues). I have almost lost all of them, now I feel too much alone and negativity:(Nobody understand me, even due to this situation my behaviour pattern is changing drastically and I am loosing my close friends. I am trying to keep myself busy as much as possible but still not able to control my thought. I am doing yoga and meditation daily almost 1hr 30 min but seems non-effective. I am not able to sleep properly from last 5 months (usually 4 hrs that too not continuous). Thoughts are running in my mind without having any control. I tried for exercise and walk but is ineffective. Not able to understand what to do? I tried online counselling but not felt comfortable sharing my personal information and I stopped. If possible suggest me some non prescribed sleeping pills so that I can sleep properly without any thoughts. Please help.

Hi lybrate-user, I feel you have lots of things to be opened up. You have closed your thoughts so tightly that it is suffocating you now. A visit to a psychologist should have help you but unfortunately, that didn't worked out well. You said this started six years back. I strongly believe that something has triggered your problem at that time. And from past six years your are going through this suffering. A sleeping pill is not a solution for this. I understand the feeling of rejection when you trusted a person and opened up but that person doesn't seems to have any patience to give you an ear. That is more hurting. You have to ignore that. But don't waste your time by thinking that nobody cares for you. It is the ultimate time to care for self. You have to start working on your problems. If you don't care for yourself then why will others care for you. So, first love yourself that will solve your half of the issues and it will help you to develop more insight into your problem, how to solve it. I strongly recommend to visit a good specialist who has much experience. And always remember that your problem can't be solved in few days. As it has taken years to develop, so it will certainly take little more time to get cured. Have patience. Through mails we can only suggest few things but what you need is a real therapy. That will bring out your fears and negative thinking. Presently you need that outlet of your yearly stuck emotions. Take care.

My hand shaking every time due hesitation, anxiety and depression. How can stops fastly?

Psychologist, Pune
Shaking occurs as a result of adrenaline. That makes it hard to stop shaking once you've already started. You can't stop adrenaline. You simply need to wait for it to get used up and control your anxiety in the process. There are a few simple things you can try: •Jog Running may use up adrenaline faster, and help you stop shaking. •Deep Breaths Breathing slow can be helpful for shaking as well. •Yell While you can't do it in public, some people find yelling loudly to be somewhat therapeutic. Some people have trained themselves to shake less. Drinking water and eating healthier may help too. Some people shake worse when their body needs more nutrients or hydration. But in general, the only way to stop shaking is to stop the anxiety that causes it.

I am suffering from social anxiety. And not being able to enjoy my life. Have even tried things like visualisation. But they help only for short term. I feel so depressed about it. I fear it is going to severely affect my career as I am a CA student. N I have to face the corporate world. God only knows how I am going to tackle. Is there any solution? Pls help me out.

Hi. Here are few asanas which will help you in reducing the anxiety problem. -Sit in the meditation position (cross-legged or heel seat) and put the hands in the lap. The back is straight and the belly relaxed. Stop one minute every thought. Then remain in meditation, thoughts can come and go as they please. All feelings of anger, fear and grief appear and dissolve by themselves. -Dhanurasana: Lie on your stomach with your feet hip-width apart and your arms by the side of your body. Fold your knees and hold your ankles. Breathing in, lift your chest off the ground and pull your legs up and back. Look straight ahead Keep the pose stable while paying attention to your breath. Your body is now taut as a bow. Continue to take long deep breaths as you relax in this pose. But don’t get carried away! Do not overdo the stretch. After 15 -20 seconds, as you exhale, gently bring your legs and chest to the ground. Release the ankles and relax. -Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (The mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) Anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like Balasan, Setu Bandha Sarvangasan, Uttanasan, Garudasan, Savasana, Triconasana, Viprita Karani, Marjaryasana, Dhyana, Bhujangasana, Anulom-Vilum, Pranayam, etc. Another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc. (Believe me, you would really enjoy doing this alone as well or may be with your friends, kids). Medication: Take homoeopathic medication - Schwabe's Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Revert.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Hello, Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1. Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2. Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3. Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

What could be the best remedy for stress and depression? I am a student and I am diagnosed with depression but I don't want to depend on medicines.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Stress and depression can be relieved to some extent with relaxation exercises like yoga, meditation, deep breathing exercises, counselling, psychotherapy sessions etc. However for cases where symptoms have been severe, long standing or relapsing every now and then, medications may be required under the supervision of a psychiatrist. This is to control symptoms from growing in severity and for preventing relapses. Take care.

Hi, first of all the good news for you is that you are not that much pessimist as you are thinking of yourself otherwise you wouldn't have asked here any question. So smile and give yourself a pat on the back:). Secondly get yourself involved in some positive group activities like sports or music. Remember idle mind is devil's workshop. Eat healthy, exercise regularly and have a sound sleep. Make a goal and prepare yourself to achieve it. Make new friends and engage yourself in your hobbies. All will be well soon. You may contact me by asking private question here on lybrate for further discussion.

Hi yes there are all possibilities that you have the same experience whenever you take alcohol, specifically if you lose control over the quantity. But it may not happen if you are smoking tobacco. So better avoid the habit and even if plan to continue with the habit exercise complete control over the quantity of intake.

I'm a college student, I am not able to concentrate on my studies. I have a headache when I take notes. And I could not able to memories my subjects. Pls help me.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
For the headache - I would suggest you to please check your eyes. You might have a number and if that is the problem, it can be easily taken care. For concentration and memory try following things on a daily basis and you will see positive results. Concentration is a mental skill that you can develop. There are two ways to improve your concentration: first, raise your brain's natural ability to concentrate. In other words, increase your attention. Second, adjust the environment around you to make concentrating easier. To improve your concentration takes a little time and effort, but it can be worth it. In my personal experience with students. This can make noticeable improvement in a relatively short time. Ideas for daily concentration-boosting habits include: mindfulness meditation - many studies confirm that 20 minutes of meditation or more per day improves concentration and attention span. Focusing on your breathing, known as mindfulness meditation, is one of the simplest way of meditation. Start with ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes before bed. Proper sleep -i am sorry to say it. Pulling all nighter will not help with your grade. Unless you are getting sufficient restful sleep, you are not going to be as mentally focused as you could be. Brain game -. The more you use certain skills, the more they are reinforced in the brain. So it makes sense that playing concentration games and games that require you to focus will improve your concentration ability. You need to be consistent in this. Play for about 10 to 20 minutes each day. Have fun, and get the benefits but remember not to spend more than 20 minutes a day. Your goal is to improve your concentration and not the score in the game! eat healthier - your brain needs the proper nutrients to allow you to focus. Eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid consumption of junk food as much as possible. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Exercise is helpful in both reducing stress and increasing focus. At-least 20 minutes a day would go a long way. Optimize your mental state & environment in addition to building the habits described above into your daily routine, also adjust your environment and your current mental state to improve your concentration when studying. Create a study spot. Your brain loves routine. Create a place where all you do is study. An obvious choice is a secluded desk of some kind, but the trick is to make sure you only study in that spot. Studying in bed is a bad habit, for example, because your body is trained to want to sleep once you get into bed. Remove distractions. Turn off the ringer on your phone and take other steps to prevent interruptions. Don't study with the television on or with talk radio playing. Some studies have shown that soft instrumental music (no vocals) can help improve your concentration. Block background noises. If you have to study or work in an environment where it is too loud (classroom or open space) or too quiet (such as at home or at a library) you can get easily distracted by outside influences. With the right amount of background noise you can actually block out distractions and enhance your creative thinking. Use time boxes. Set a time limit when you need to study new material. For example, let's say you want to read one chapter in a book (and remember it). Decide in advance that you can have 45 minutes to read the chapter, and 15 minutes to review it. Set a timer to keep yourself honest, then pace yourself to keep within the allotted time. Stay motivated with rewards. If you see studying as burden, it's hard to concentrate. One way to stay motivated is to set up a reward system. Tell yourself you have to earn that hour of watching your favorite show later in the evening by first completing one hour of intense studying. That way, even if the material is dry, you have the reward to look forward to. Take a break every two hours. You mental energy will begin to decline after a long period of study. So every two hours or so, take a ten minute break. Walk around, eat a light snack, or just stare at the wall to relax your mind. Concentrating is the first step to learning anything new. It only makes sense that if you improve your concentration, your memory will improve also. Hope this helps wishing you very best,

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. I suggest you should not worry much about your voice because it can be changed upto an extent even if you go for surgery. I suggest you to just leave it like that and be proud of what positives you have. Just for some change, you may consult a speech therapist. Take care.
