Feeling sad and depressed always, feeling stressed due to daily family issues, inability to deal with ongoing stress, becoming socially withdrawn and having feelings of" quitting life" are all signs of depressive disorder.

First of all and very urgently, seek help from a qualified- at least a phd psychologist with experience in psychological testing. Get psychological testing for correct diagnosis of illness. Once, you get the reports, your psychologist will tell you whether it is a mental illness that requires treatment by medicines or some psychological problem. In case of an illness, treatment is given by psychiatrist in the form of medicine. In case of psychological problems, treatment is given by psychologist in the form of counselling and psychotherapy. If the problem is psychological, it will never be cured by medicines. So, first step is correct diagnosis.

You know, you have associated smoking with ease in defecating and relaxation. The truth is that nicotine craving builds up stress, which is then relieved by smoking. It does not have any role in relaxation. You can substitute this association with preferably normal chewing gum or if not helping, a nicotine chewing gum. Remember, you just have to give a conditioning association of any kind to your subconscious.

Hello User, I had read a story. Two persons were walking along towards a village. It was summer time. A large tree came on their way. They lie down below the tree to save themselves from heat. Looking at the tree, one commented that the tree was not bearing any fruit, so was not of no use. Tree listened to them, and replied silently,” I provided you shed. I saved you from heat. And you call me good-for-nothing”. God has created every living being with a purpose behind. You too carry a purpose. H. You are fortunate to have taken birth as a human being. Please thank Him from your heart, for being born as human being. Now, you say that you do not have any friends, and you are very lonely. You feel depressed. Let us analyse the cause of disturbance. I have learnt one line in my life. That is ,” Answer lies in your question”. It means all unsolved items only comes up to the surface from your mind. You remain disturbed within that boundary. Then you look outside for solution. Disturbance inside frames the periphery around it. Hence, your question shows the boundary. You feel lonely. Such feeling arises when you feel the absence of other. The presence was giving you a lot of pleasure. If that is the reason, then the solution is attachment. May be someone was listening to you, you could share your unhappiness and pleasure. Of course, we all do it in our day to day life. It gives a relaxation when we share our feelings. But, it has a opposite effect ,when the other is not there. In other words, dependency on others bring pleasure and unhappiness. Hence, it is advised to learn to live alone. Aloneness is staying within oneself independently. You are not affected by other’s absence or presence. You are within yourself. And you feel completely filled within all the time. To reach such a state you need to do meditation daily. I will suggest you to get some guided type meditation from net. Do practice daily with them. Those will reduce the disturbance your mind. Follow one only, which you feel more effective. After doing so for someday, you will not look forward the presence of others. You feel so complete within yourself. Best of luck. Keep me informed on your progress.

Difficulty concentrating is a normal and periodic occurrence for most people. Tiredness and emotional stress can cause concentration problems in most people. Hormonal changes at your age can also affect your thinking and concentration capabilities for some time. However if you are suffering from an excessive degree of concentration problem then you should consult an expert. There are certain psychological conditions that cause concentration problems too, like attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd), bipolar disorder (bpd).

You must go for counseling soon. Counseling will help in training you will skills and techniques to cope with the daily challenges in life and will give you a fair chance to manage your life. You must also develop your constitution to make it fit enough to cope with fear, felt many times unnecessarily. You may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Take care of the following: Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body?s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart?s fitness; meditation for the brain?s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be. As regards public speaking, you are not alone: this is the world?s number one fear. Here are a few tips that are not exhaustive enough to elaborate in this forum: A few minutes before you start your heart beat can speed up from a normal rate of 70 beats per minute up to a high of 140.When you actually start; it shoots up further to 190 beats. Here's the good news: this lasts only 30-60 seconds before it progressively starts to decline. Since this is the situation, you can take two measures: To slow your heart beat breathe deep and slow into your diaphragm, it utilizes an extra 80% of your lungs to absorb more oxygen. The heart beats faster due to more oxygen requirement and slow breathing also reduces stress. Since the first 60 seconds are so important to your fear syndrome plan a good opening few lines and practice it well!

Hello sir. Please ensure his safety first. Do not leave him alone at any time, keep all potential harmful things, like medicines, insecticides, knives etc away from him, talk to him and try to comfort him so that he does not feel lonely. Having suicidal thoughts is alarming and he needs to see a psychiatrist to help him get out of his depression. Just asking him to come out of it won't help him as it is not on his control. He needs combination of medication and professional counseling. Take care.

There is no substitute to timely intervention for mental health problems. Every state has government hospital catering to psychiatric illnesses or there is psychiatry opd in most of the government hospitals. So taking your brother to any of these would be good idea.

Obviously the habit has became firmly entrenched by now. It will be more difficult but not impossible! it is through perseverance that success can be achieved especially in this habit. If is too difficult then you can go for counseling to get the necessary support and to help identify the emotions, the stress, and the situations that make you want to smoke. When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. You need to identify with why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. If the urge is too strong, then you could use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may join smokers anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all, announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Most of the damage can be reversed but the best part is that you are not furthering the damage: you have literally saved your life.

Causes, Symptoms and Treatments of OCD

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Ask Free Question
OCD or obsessive compulsive disorder is a mental condition, which traps people in a cycle of repetitive thoughts that push them to do repetitive behaviors. As the name states, the obsession over certain things compels them to do it over and over again. These actions will only help you feel relieved for a short time and soon the cycle starts back again.

Symptoms of OCD
The symptoms of OCD are classified into two groups, one for the obsessive behavior and the other for compulsive behavior. Some of the common symptoms for these are mentioned below:

Obsessive behaviors
As the name states this means obsessing over certain things, which varies from person to person. Some of the things could be:
1. Being scared about making mistakes
2. The fear of being embarrassed in public situations
3. Constantly being scared about contamination by germs, microbes or dirt
4. Doubts about sure and simple situations and the need to be constantly reassured about them

Compulsive behaviors
The obsessions usually results in compulsive behaviors, which you may need to perform to reassure and relieve yourself of the anxiety temporarily. Some of these may include:
1. Trying to constantly arrange things in a certain way and still not being satisfied
2. Thoughts, words and images being stuck in your head throughout the day that may keep you disturbed and cause to lose sleep
3. You may even repeat specific words or actions multiple times as a measure of self reassurance.
4. Hoarding of items, which have no value

Causes of OCD
Biological factors: Certain chemical imbalances in the brain may lead to OCD, which may happen due to hormonal or biological changes. In fact certain infections are also known to trigger OCD in people.
Environmental factors: Certain types of mental trauma have been known to trigger OCD as well, such as
1. Office, school, college or other work related stresses over a long period of time
2. The passing away of a near and dear one
3. Relationship problems
4. Repressed abuses from earlier in life

Most treatments of OCD are categorized into two types:
Cognitive behavioral therapy: This is a counseling based therapy where you may be slowly asked to face your fears and overcome them over a period of time.
Medications: Antidepressants, inhibitors, or antipsychotic drugs or relaxants in various combinations may be used to treat OCD.
Electroconvulsive therapy: Only in the rarest of cases would doctors consider electroconvulsive therapy, if the patient is a danger to themselves or others around them.

You are very tuned into what is happening with your body. But you need to tune into how the mind affects your body as well. If you are undergoing through any tension, stress, anxiety or fear, your body can react in a similar way (your body is showing symptoms of" flight" mode which is a natural body reaction to stress). You need to learn to manage stress effectively so that you can be productive and healthy. Please see a counsellor and discuss your problems with her to learn how to deal and cope with whatever is your problem.

The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance, like your question seeks. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Now you may argue that it is the Government that is giving all the work. That is true in the overt sense, but if you look at it with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques, which is all about expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. The diet includes eating foods with potential antihypertensive activity like fresh fruits and vegetables (amla juice, beetroot garlic and radish), whole grains, milk, etc and lowering the intake of salt and processed foods. : Probiotics, Bananas, Citrus fruits, Papaya, Berries, Avocado, Potatoes, Leafy veggies, Beetroot, Peas and beans, & Radish are all good foods for you.

For symptoms that relapse u mark, write down in ur diary as warning sign and inform other caregiver to give support at the time of crisis.
