It is possible she is having migraine, as the symptoms like one sided headache and nausea/vomiting are going towards that. I suggest you consult a psychiatrist for further management. Consider getting a CT or MRI brain done to rule out other things.

Obviously you are very depressed to contemplate death. In fact I think that you have an anger related depression and it may have its roots somewhere in early childhood. You must talk to your parents to find out if there was anything that happened in your infancy, including the prenatal stage, which may have contributed to this depression. You may visit a counselor along with your parents and discuss the depression and follow a treatment plan, immediately. That person will certainly want you to consult a psychiatrist to introduce you to medication. I think that this is an urgent thing to do. It is very important to maintain working with the counselor for a long term, which is essential to your recovery. In the meantime, do as much as is permissible of the following: You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, 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, eat more of proteins, nuts, fruits, and vegetables, 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 scotching 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. The 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.

I am depressed. I am trying to forget a girl since 4 but did not succeed. I am stressed and depressed.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology, MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist,
I am depressed. I am trying to forget a girl since 4 but did not succeed. I am stressed and depressed.
Hello user. You may never forget her. Instead, focus your mind and thoughts on the following, in this order: (1) "accepting the loss" by allowing yourself to feel what you are feeling, not resisting it. This is healthy and important, and will help you move on, whereas if you don't allow yourself to feel these emotions you will be stuck in this state of agony long term (2) hold in mind feelings that bring you joy, but do not involve images or feelings about the girl. Keep the focus on you and what brings you joy and happiness, such as thoughts about things you want to do in your life (3) find a good book online that is about "letting go" and read it and study it, and practice what it recommends. Such a book is a huge asset due to the learning of how to let go, plus is a distraction for your mind (4) don't jump into another relationship until you have healed emotionally and moved on/ let go mentally. Having sex is okay but not if it is going to lead to a relationship. Doing so leads to the "pushing under a rug" the feelings of loss rather than working through those emotions/ accepting the loss. Do that and you set yourself up for massive emotional baggage life long (5) put your energies in physical activities such as exercise, sports, outdoor adventures, play time outdoors or at a gym. Get out of the house in other words. Don't spend all your time indoors nor on the Internet (6) in time, you will move on and the feelings of sadness will cease and the good memories of the girl/ you and her together will come to mind and instead of agony you will feel neutral and okay about it, because you took these steps sbove. Whereas if you do not, down the road when thoughts of her arise, or if you should see her, you will feel how you will now if not a lot worse due to all this time since still feeling agony. Which will be self imposed, due to your choice to stay stuck in grief. Hence, the 6 steps. These will set you free. I put them to use many times in my youth and as an adult. They are proven tactics and will work, provided you truly do want to move on. That is the key. To actually change, that change must truly be desired. You will overcome her. Trust in yourself.

At your age and with the course you are doing there may be a lot of distractions going on that may be the cause of the problem. There may also be mental fatigue from over-studying. In that case you may need to take a useful break for a short period and then return back to your studies. In your case the subject may have reached boring proportions and so it may not find appeal to your mind. In that case the drowsiness will prevail. You could try group study to generate some interest because of the others involvement. Also, study difficult subjects in the early part of the morning when your mind is freshest and the metabolic rate; mood and energy levels are rising up to 11 am. Here are some things to do that will alleviate the situation, if you followed them meticulously. If you are under some stress, there will be difficulty remembering. So if you handled stress better, you will certainly improve. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is rested well to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. So, catch a good 8 hours of sleep every night. 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 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, 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 are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. You may also meet with a counselor to take care of the stress related emotions, and then you will fare better too.

Doctor says I have simple schizophrenia, I need to confirm. I am currently taking levosulpiride, Clox (brand name) and omega 3,6,9 tabs. According to these information, what mental disorder or not I have?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
If you have doubt in your mind regarding your diagnosis, get yourself re-evaluated by a Psychiatrist, who will make the proper diagnosis based on your mental status examination & psychological test like Psycho-diagnostic evaluation. & if you are diagnosed to be suffering from a mental disorder, it will be best for you to accept the fact that you are suffering from the disorder, stay under regular supervision of your attending doctor, & adhere to treatment. Educate yourself adequately regarding the diagnosed illness, its symptoms etc. & if any doubt regarding the illness or its treatment come to your mind, always discuss with your attending doctor &/or family member, & do not take any decision alone. There are treatments available for mental disorders & a person with such disorders can lead a normal life on treatment. Along with, lead an active life, eat healthy diet, sleep adequately & stay away from substances of abuse like alcohol, tobacco etc. & stay positive about life. If it is difficult for you to accept the illness or you are not able to cope with it, then you can go for counseling sessions.

Diff modes of mind and body

M.A-Philosophy, Masters in Psychotherapy and Counselling, B.A.M.S
Psychologist,
Our body mind complex works in two modes. When it is in peace mode we feel relaxed, peaceful. When we are facing any danger it gets converted to war mode. It is fight or flight reflex useful for survival. We feel anxiety, fear or anger in this mode. Our blood supply gets redistributed in this mode. Our big muscles in limbs get more blood while digestive system gets little, heart rate and breathing rate get increased and blood sugar level is also increased. Because of these changes we can jump high or run fast but if we live in this mode for long term it can cause many diseases, lack of concentration, panic attacks and fatigue. We can change our unnecessary war mode by deep breathing, meditation and improving self awareness. It is skill and anyone can master it by regular practice.

Life is enjoyable if one has positive attitude. It is also very important to have realistic expectations from life, from self and from others. No one can have" ideal" life style. If you have realistic expectations, there is lesser chance for disappointments. Please learn to focus on the plus points or the strengths, in every aspect of your life. For example, you need to understand that you are lucky, you have a job and you also have a wife. About the job you are not satisfied because your salary is less. Try to analyse why it is so, try to negotiate your salary with your seniors or learn some extra skills so that you can demand more salary. See if you can start some part time business, agency etc, which will give you extra income. About the expenses, decide your priorities then plan your finances properly. About your wife, try to have open communication with her. Understand that her ideas, needs, values and expectations are going to be different from yours. Please convey your ideas, needs and expectations to her. You both need to talk to each other about your feelings and also need to" listen" to each other. This will help in improving your relations with your wife. I can imagine, your work stress might be making you tired and dull. Try to go for some exercise or yoga/pranayam. It will give a healthy outlet to your stress. Once your stress is released you will be able to think rationally and not feel sad about every life situation. Life is a challenge for almost every other person. We need to make a choice - either look at brighter side of life and enjoy life along with its challenges or keep complaining about the things that are not available to us and waste your prime youth. If you can change your perception about life, it will be easier to live. All the best.

Thanks for the information. Some loss of memory is accetable when we age. Daily brisk walking, meditation and deep breathing exercises are very useful for good functioning of brain. You can also solve some puzzles that come in newspapers or magazines. Playing chess with a friend is a helpful strategy. Keeping a calendar near your bedside with important events marked is helpful. You can also start maintaing diary and write notes of all your activity.

Don't allow your mind to wander but bring the mind under control of your self with help of your intelligence. If you control your mind your mind can be your best friend but if you do not control your mind your mind can become your worst enemy.

Dear , When you are in an elated mood, angry, anxious, fighting, stressed, naturally your blood pressure and pulse rates are elevated. They come back to normal when you become calm. That is the body mechanism. Why worry? Change yourself and your attitude so as to accommodate everyone and stop quarrel and fighting. Take care.

Dear, negative thinking and the given heart beat symptoms are due to your anxiety and probable stress disorder. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

How to quit smoke? its not easy as I thought. I tried many times but I cant? so any tips which make me quit smoke as soon as possible.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It only feels like so. But if you make up your mind and follow some strategies, you will be able to give it up for good. You have certainly made a good decision and you can go about it in the following manner. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also 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. Here? s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.
