4 Logical Ways to Save Your Relationship When You’re Depressed

4 Logical Ways to Save Your Relationship When You’re Depressed
Ways to Save Your Relationship When You’re Depressed

The foremost thing that you can do to save your relationship is get your spouse treated for depression. When you are depressed, whether it is because of your relationship with your partner or some other reason, you must make joint efforts to save your relationship. Non depressed spouse has to take the lead. A relationship cannot go further only with the patience of one partner. Efforts and care of both the partners go hand in hand.

However, there are few things you can do even when you or your partner is depressed.

1. Communication: Don’t stop communicating with your partner. It’s very important to understand your partner’s viewpoint and to make him understand your viewpoint. Until, both of you share your thoughts and concerns; you will not be able to save the relationship.

2. Think about your commitment: When you are depressed, you might make your partner responsible for all the wrong things. You need to be wise. Don’t let one bad moment spoil your years of relationship. Think of the commitment you have made to your partner and then you might handle the situation in a more loving way.

3. Don’t leave your partner alone for longer time: After presenting your viewpoint, you must give your partner some time to digest everything. What is easy for you might be difficult for him and what is difficult for you might be easy for him? In such a case, you need to leave him alone for some time but do take care that this silence shouldn’t continue for a longer time.

4. Don’t play blame games: If you are depressed, you shouldn’t let your partner suffer from that. Do not strain the relationship any further by playing blame games. That will not help. When your spouse says something that seems negative try not to personalize it, even if it's directed at you. Attribute it to the state of depression.

While this can be a very difficult time for both you and your spouse, you can weather this storm with compassion and empathy.

Everyone of us hold lots of irrational demands from ourselves and surroundings which makes us stressed out and depressed. Identify what you are thinking? If you think that she should pay attention to you, she should talk to you or she should respond to you, it's natural but understand that it's her choice what to do. Can you control other's thinking and behavior? No. You can only change your thinking and behavior. Your thinking is responsible for ur depression. Think practically and rationally and always accept the reality. Trust yourself and be ready to face reality.

5 Ways to Tackle a Depressed Family Member!

Psychiatrist, Delhi
5 Ways to Tackle a Depressed Family Member!

Depression follows the trajectory opposite to contentment. It has adverse effects on a person's mental and physical health. Being depressive is not a choice; it is a condition. The fact that despondency is not an elected way of life is a mystery to many. People surrounding a depressed person should make conscious efforts in treating them with love and dignity. Subjecting a person to strict deadlines, stringent rules or excessive pressure could worsen their situation.   

Ways to tackle a depressed family member:

  1. Create occasions to enjoy a hearty laugh: If you have a family member suffering from depression you should probably share the benefits of laughter with him or her. Laughter is the best medicine to remedy acute depression. Look for opportunities to crack a joke or make the concerned person play with a pet. You can also take the person to watch humorous movies.
  2. "You are impossible" is the worst way of approaching a problem: In many cases a depressed person is reported with instances of negativity. Though the expressed negativity makes you feel morbid, do not give up on your family member. The person involuntarily finds reasons to feel hopeless. You should never think the case is beyond any kind of betterment.  
  3. Keep them in a positive environment: Positive ideas can counter dejection. Help the person plan for a great future. Lay stress on how important that person is to you and to the world in general. Keeping one's mind creatively occupied can prove to be effective. Music or any other passion for that matter can help a person get over phases of depression.
  4. You should not associate depression with perpetual sadness: Depression can have plenty of symptoms. The symptoms vary from one person to another. While some people lack in motivation some might want to harm themselves or others. Many become a recluse. The minute you associate depression with sadness you limit your overview of the actual problem.  
  5. Help the family member take his or her medicines diligently: While counseling helps a few patients of depression some others require medication. A bout of depression will dissuade a person from sticking to his or her medical routine. As a loved one it is your due responsibility to persuade him or her to take medicines regularly. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist and ask a free question.

Hello sir, Thank you for sharing your problems. Excess salivation (sialorrhoea) may be a mild side effect of sizodon (risperidone). However at 1 mg dosage, this is uncommon. Practicing swallowing frequently in the day, chewing sugar free chewing gums are some methods to reduce increased salivation. There are medications that can reduce increased salivation (glycopyrrolate, atropine drops, trihexyphenidyl). But at this small dose of sizodon, it's not required. Often this side effect reduces by itself over the time, there is no requirement to stop existing medication.

Track your stressors Keep a journal for a week or two to identify which situations create the most stress and how you respond to them. Record your thoughts, feelings and information about the environment, including the people and circumstances involved, the physical setting and how you reacted. Did you raise your voice? Get a snack from the vending machine? Go for a walk? Taking notes can help you find patterns among your stressors and your reactions to them Develop healthy responses  Instead of attempting to fight stress with fast food or alcohol, do your best to make healthy choices when you feel the tension rise. Exercise is a great stress-buster. Also make time for hobbies and favorite activities. Whether it's reading a novel, going to concerts or playing games with your family, make sure to set aside time for the things that bring you pleasure. Getting enough good-quality sleep is also important for stress management Take time to recharge Don't let your vacation days go to waste. When possible, take time off to relax, so you come back to work feeling rejevenuated and ready to perform at your best. Just a positve change in your lifestyle will lead to stress free and healthy (physically and mentally) life.

It appears like issues with your family have triggered the depression. I suggest that you get some professional help to sort both the family issues and your personal issues with them. Not being able to trust your own family speaks volumes about some serious developments probably for a long time. Surely there may be some senior extended family member who can be of some assistance. For your own depression I suggest some of the following measures: 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, if possible. 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.

Hello Doctor, I am writing you this mail on behalf of my mother who is suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Below is her brief history : My mother aged 57 has been a patient of OCD since last 25 years and was under medication of a psychiatrist. She was regularly taking Ocifril tab due to which her illness was in control. However, since last 3 years, she has stopped the medicine as she was feeling quite relaxed and the illness too was under control. But still there were some circumstances wherein we could see some signs of OCD surfacing in between wherein we advised her to start the Ocifril tab again.  Within 10-15 days of resuming the tab again, she experiences some menstrual spotting (Her periods have stopped since last 4 years) which in turn further aggravates the OCD. So she stops the pill consumption fearing spotting. Now, we have reached a stage wherein she is unable to take the Ocifril tab, neither her OCD is under control. Hence, with great hopes, i am awaiting a response from you to help me cure this. Also it would be of great help if you could suggest a medicine that can be consumed along with Ocifril that would prevent spotting. Also, she is currently undergoing treatment for thyroid as well. Please assist us.

Hello, Yes OCD is a chronic relapsing & remitting illness which tends to come back even after periods of prolonged wellness. You need to provide me with her complete medicine history (which other drugs have been tried & in Wat doses) along with list of your mother's OC symptoms so that We can devise a treatment plan for her. Waiting for information. Good Luck

I am suffering from hesitation from childhood. Now i'm 25 year old. Any solution then please give me suggestion.?

I am suffering from hesitation from childhood. Now i'm 25 year old. Any solution then please give me suggestion.?
Understand why you are hesitant. Hesitance stems from uncertainty. Uncertainty is. Well, it's almost guaranteed, for every situation you will ever face. If you're always certain, you're probably wrong, because none of us knows everything. So hesitance is actually a sort of safety or defense mechanism - in the face of uncertainty, almost everyone hesitates a little. 2 Address your fears. A huge factor in hesitation is fear of doing the wrong thing, or making a mistake. There are two main ways to deal with this. One is to imagine that worst case scenario that's really holding you back (like embarrassing one's self--that's a big one for most of us) and saying to yourself" so what" people embarrass themselves all the time; in fact, if you watch popular and charming people, you'll see that they mess up too, but more importantly, they respond gracefully to their own mistakes. They joke around about it (watch - they will say things like" no" as they make an exaggerated attempt to stop the catastrophe), they even make fun of themselves (d'oh! i'm pathetic"), and they immediately accept that they're human, and mistakes happen (" man - I hate when that happens"). They make some silly remark, give a big cheesy smile - and they move on. You can, too. If you make a mistake, it's not the end of the world. Secondly, think of the consequences of inaction. Remember that hesitating means not acting, and not acting has its own consequences. Don't want to talk to that guy because you're worried you'll put your foot in your mouth and ruin your chances with him well, you might, and that's okay - life will go on. Or, you might win him over; you never know! but, if you don't act, you guarantee that nothing will ever happen. How can sparks fly when you won't even come face-to-face with him do you really want to just wait for him to do everything what if he's more paranoid about action than you are? when it's over, would you be happy with how you handled the situation, in retrospect? stop hesitating train yourself to think, then act. Overcoming hesitance does not mean you should just start jumping blindly into situations - that could get you into trouble, or worse, be dangerous. But taking a moment to mentally consider the ramifications of decision a or decision b - and in rare cases, decision c - could spare you problems later. Train yourself to think through first one possibility and then one other - and stop there unless a third possibility is glaringly obvious. Don't allow yourself to go off on tangent after tangent, chasing down every possible eventuality. Give yourself a choice between two actions (or that rare third one), and then decide. Give yourself a time limit. To help you avoid" analysis paralysis" you should give yourself a defined time limit when considering serious actions such as purchasing a home, accepting a job, or quitting one. Instead of grinding over endless possibilities, and then discovering you've now been chewing this over for a week and it's too late to care any more, give yourself a couple of hours to consider accepting a job. Sleep on it before you act on a decision to quit or make an offer on a house. But once you have reached your time limit, take action. Make the decision. If you find that you are hesitant over simple, every day decisions, like asking that pretty girl out, or whether to go to a company party, or even what to have for lunch, try giving yourself just 30 seconds to decide. In this exercise, you must say" yes" at least 50% of the time (in other words, no fair retreating to the safe" non-action" all the time). This will help you to save your" no" for events or decisions where it matters a lot more - or a lot less - what your answer would be. Next time you're deciding what to do and find yourself cursing your hesitance, look at a clock or watch, and start counting down from 30. By the time you reach 1, you must make a positive decision. Example: co-worker" we're having drinks at jojo's tonight - want to join us" you" uhm. I'm not sure. Ummm who all is going" co-worker" everyone from accounting and that pretty new girl. I know you want to meet her" you: (really nervous and hesitant now" wow. I'm not sure" co-worker: (resigned to you just not showing up, as usual" well, okay. Let us know. You're more than welcome to come, though" (starts moving away) the new you" you know what - yes, i'd love to come. I was just thinking about whether I already had something, but it's not important. Thank you for asking me - i'll see you tonight" co-worker: (pleasantly surprised" great! we'll see you then. Uh - her name is emily, just so you know" the new you" ok. See you then. Mmm. Emily" (smiling quietly to yourself) force yourself to do new things. Having new, different experiences helps you learn to cope with new situations, and it builds your self-confidence, which helps you become a more decisive person. Often, hesitance and indecisive behaviours are caused by having lived a sheltered existence, or not having much experience to draw on. Allowing yourself to go to parties or gatherings, or even just going to meetings, conventions, or the movies with different people, broadens your horizons a little bit every time you do it. You hear the stories others tell, and you soon have some stories of your own to tell. As you become more experienced, you will be more certain of what will happen in different circumstances. Being more certain = being less hesitant. Have confidence and faith in yourself. You have some special talent and you need to show it to the world.
