Hi lybrate-user, feeling down or blue is a natural part of life. People let us down, things go wrong, we lose people we love or the dreams we've valued. When feeling down stretches over weeks or months, is occurring frequently and interfering with your ability to interact with people and enjoy your life, it is likely that you're experiencing some form of depression. Provided that you're able to access information and have a good doctor and support network around you, even severe depression is a highly treatable condition. Along with medication psychotherapy from psychologist is a important adjunct. Firstly, you will have to make few lifestyle changes: sleep well. Sleep is essential to a healthy, balanced body. Lack of sleep can aggravate negative thinking and easily becomes a vicious cycle whereby your negative thoughts keep you awake and disable your ability to get enough sleep. Waking unrefreshed and feeling tired is a common complaint during depression, and even too much sleep can leave depressed persons feeling tired. Breaking this cycle requires enforcing a strict sleep routine of the same bedtime and waking time every day, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, not exercising three hours prior to bed, removing anything distracting from your bedroom, and keeping your room at a suitable temperature. Exercise releases a natural anti-depressant chemical in your brain and gets you into doing something active. Start small with a simple walk to the local store or around the block, or to your garden gate might be the way to begin. Gradually work up to a routine that fits with your needs and enjoyment. Lastly, I feel you should take psychotherapy from psychologist. Your negative thinking can be modified through cognitive behavior therapy. All the best.

There are no side effects please take that out of your mind otherwise as it is that fear will not let you survive adequately. Anxiety is curable and follow the medication prescribed by doctor it will start showing its effects slowly and slowly medicines will be tapered. If you are so fearful of side effects you ask you doctor to change it.

Masturbation has nothing to do with memory power. The stress about you thinking it is a problem will affect your memory. So stop worrying about it. Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully to improve memory: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food. You may also include these noted foods that are good for your brain health: Brain-Friendly Foods MIND stands for Mediterranean-DASH Intervention for Neurodegenerative Delay. But the MIND approach “specifically includes foods and nutrients that medical literature and data show to be good for the brain, such as berries,” says Martha Clare Morris, ScD, director of nutrition and nutritional epidemiology at Rush University Medical Center. You eat things from these 10 food groups: •Green leafy vegetables (like spinach and salad greens): At least six servings a week •Other vegetables: At least one a day •Nuts: Five servings a week •Berries: Two or more servings a week •Beans: At least three servings a week •Whole grains: Three or more servings a day •Fish: Once a week •Poultry (like chicken or turkey): Two times a week •Olive oil: Use it as your main cooking oil. •Wine: One glass a day You avoid: •Red meat: Less than four servings a week •Butter and margarine: Less than a tablespoon daily •Cheese: Less than one serving a week •Pastries and sweets: Less than five servings a week •Fried or fast food: Less than one serving a week.

We are married before 1 year and our relationship is good. But she has a concern with my family members from the start. She always have perceptions towards my family. I tap my wife's phone for some calls and I found her mother guide her wrong. They talk about me and my family very irrespectfully and some time abuse us on phone. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

First of all do not ever tap into your wife?s phone calls. Besides, it is bad manners and absolutely unethical and reflects a lack of trust. You are already suffering from depression and to know your wife?s personal conversation will certainly upset you because she has a close bonding with her mother from the time of being in her womb! If your relationship with her is good, that is all that matters. Since you are hardly married for a year, you must give her time to adjust with your family. I hope you are not living with your family too. Then the adjustment will take a lot of time. There will always be differences between your family and hers. Some of these differences will be difficult to stomach and some with be easy. If you discuss the problems with her and explain the situation, it will be better and will work out smoothly. The first two years of a marriage should be spent with each other alone because there are a lot of things to be worked out between the young couple. At that time you do not need other family members to be around and cause more distress. In fact, if it is your family, they would naturally be biased towards you and will take your side. Then your wife will feel ostracized and it will cause a lot of discord between you two. You need to respect those differences that are bound to crop up but do not use it to increase the conflict. Yes, she should not use these problems to get back at you. Fortunately she is discussing and even cursing your family in the privacy of her conversations with her mother, which I think is okay and she can be given that margin. We need to respect her privacy and let her have her say with whatever she condemns as long as she does not use it openly to your family.

My father has been suffering from Parkinson's disease since 2007. Now it has reached a maximum severe condition. He has been taking levodopa supplement (Syndopa (levodopa carbidopa: 250 25) which has been wearing off and causing side effects like Involuntary movement, occasional dementia and he is becoming weaker day by day. We have consulted numbers of doctor including Neurologist, Medicine specialist and we could not find a better alternative of the drugs. We used Tridopa 100 (another levodopa supplement) but the dosage is not working for my father. What I an interested to know if there is any better treatment of this disease? His health is deteriorating day by day. Please let me know.

There are various kinds of drugs for Parkinsonism. Basically if one group of medicine don't work we try different. I am sure your doctor must have tried all options. Your father also needs anti dementia medicine. It should be started at the earliest as it can only prevent deterioration and cannot reverse the dementia. Keep your father in a room where he gets multiple stimulations from environment like light, air, sound and keeps in constant touch with what is happening around . This will reduce confusion of dementia

M not feeling well. I get sad on little things. I wanted to relax my mind but it doesn't work. What should I do?

Psychologist,
M not feeling well. I get sad on little things. I wanted to relax my mind but it doesn't work. What should I do?
Seek help from a psychologist to work through the cause of such feelings. There seem to be underlying hurts and distress causing it. You can begin by an online consultation with me from the comfort of your home/office and talk about your problem in a totally confidential manner. Online consultation will help you to assess for yourself if you at all need to go for face to face treatment or a video chat from your room/office is good enough. If you find an online consultation helpful, you may continue with it.

I am week from mind I forget many thing from last month and I get very few sleep in night.

I am week from mind I forget many thing from last month and I get very few sleep in night.
Hi there, Sadness or downswings in mood are normal reactions to life’s struggles, setbacks, and disappointments. Many people use the word “depression” to explain these kinds of feelings, but depression is much more than just sadness. Some people describe depression as “living in a black hole” or having a feeling of impending doom. However, some depressed people don't feel sad at all—they may feel lifeless, empty, and apathetic, or men in particular may even feel angry, aggressive, and restless. Whatever the symptoms, depression is different from normal sadness in that it engulfs your day-to-day life, interfering with your ability to work, study, eat, sleep, and have fun. The feelings of helplessness, hopelessness, and worthlessness are intense and unrelenting, with little, if any, relief. Are you depressed? If you identify with several of the following signs and symptoms—especially the first two—and they just won’t go away, you may be suffering from depression. You feel hopeless and helpless You’ve lost interest in friends, activities, and things you used to enjoy You feel tired all the time Your sleep and appetite has changed You can’t concentrate or find that previously easy tasks are now difficult You can’t control your negative thoughts, no matter how much you try You are much more irritable, short-tempered, or aggressive than usual You’re consuming more alcohol than normal or engaging in other reckless behavior What are the signs and symptoms of depression? Depression varies from person to person, but there are some common signs and symptoms. It’s important to remember that these symptoms can be part of life’s normal lows. But the more symptoms you have, the stronger they are, and the longer they’ve lasted—the more likely it is that you’re dealing with depression. When these symptoms are overwhelming and disabling, that's when it's time to seek help. Signs and symptoms of depression include: Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. A bleak outlook—nothing will ever get better and there’s nothing you can do to improve your situation. Loss of interest in daily activities. No interest in former hobbies, pastimes, social activities, or sex. You’ve lost your ability to feel joy and pleasure. Appetite or weight changes. Significant weight loss or weight gain—a change of more than 5% of body weight in a month. Sleep changes. Either insomnia, especially waking in the early hours of the morning, or oversleeping (also known as hypersomnia). Anger or irritability. Feeling agitated, restless, or even violent. Your tolerance level is low, your temper short, and everything and everyone gets on your nerves. Loss of energy. Feeling fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained. Your whole body may feel heavy, and even small tasks are exhausting or take longer to complete. Self-loathing. Strong feelings of worthlessness or guilt. You harshly criticize yourself for perceived faults and mistakes. Reckless behavior. You engage in escapist behavior such as substance abuse, compulsive gambling, reckless driving, or dangerous sports. Concentration problems. Trouble focusing, making decisions, or remembering things. Unexplained aches and pains. An increase in physical complaints such as headaches, back pain, aching muscles, and stomach pain. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

My mother 69 years old is suffering from a psychological disorder where she remembers everything about everyday and everyone past abd present but has been ailing since last 2 years with a problem that no doctor could detect. It first started with her complaining of stomach pain. Doctors said theres nothing wrong in stomach but a few gall stones and its more psychiatrist problem. We refused to agree on this and finally a gastro surgeon operated uponher gall bladder removal. Now she sleeps almost full day refuses to go out and keeps saying about 1000 times in a day that she has no clothes. She is feeling naked and she is worried if family will throw her out. She repeatedly says she has no clothes and is naked while this is not the truth. Daddy who is a prostrate CA patient is having a very this time managing her and helping her. Of late she has become very aggressive and talks anything. She has lost a lot of weight too but eats too much when she is unable to measure her hunger. She goes down without informing and creates panic situation. Pls pls help. My dad is suffering due to this problem of mummy.

The likely possibility is she is suffering from dementia a slowly progressive neurological degenerative illness which may present with memory related intelligence related and problems related to emotion thinking and behaviour. Better consult a psychiatrist. Medical treatment will arrest progress of illness and give her relief of symptoms. Let doctor decide about illness and do not decide your self.
