I was a heavy smoker for about 7 years. Now I am almost quieting. And I want to go to gym. Can there be side affects if I go to gym? What else can I do?

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Very nice. I am happy that you decided to quit smoking. Go ahead, do it. You can go to gym for sure. but for 4 weeks do not indulge in rigorous exercises and weight training. let your body, especially lungs, repair itself. Give it time. there will not be any side effects or withdrawal symptoms. Take care.

Hi sir I am always getting angry and I cannot sleep. And I forget every thing and my age is 17 .

Master of Clinical Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Psychological Counselling
Psychologist, Pune
Whenever you get angry, detach yourself from that situation and practice deep breathing, feel that your anger is moving out from your mind. Share with your closed ones. Identify your thoughts which make you angry. Replace those with positivity. With the help of counselling, you will learn to relax yourself and to instruct your subconscious mind with positive thoughts.

Wearing females dress for sexual gratification is called transvestism. This is a type of sexual perversion if this occurs consistently leading to impairment in life. If this behavior is rare, once in a while, it can be ignored as falling under a deviance of normalcy, so do not worry. Consult a psychiatrist if you have further doubts. All the best.

Hey doctor I am so depressed for one year about my career. I always want to talk to my mom about it but don't have the guts to do it. Whenever I try to talk about it my heart beat becomes fast and sometimes I need to go to toilet. Is there any way that I could do it.

Regarding your career: Try to put up your résumés or CV on as many job sites as possible. Most of them are free so it will not cost you anything. It is possible that since you may not have significant experience, you may have to take a simpler job with less pay. However do not despair. Everyone has to start somewhere. The important thing is to start a job somewhere, get experience, then you can upgrade to a better job. At the same time, if possible, do some additional courses that will help to strengthen your resume. Also confide in someone you trust and spend time with family and friends. This will help you reduce your stress. If you feel suicidal consult a psychiatrist immediately. You seem to be having lot of anxiety about the same. Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

How to cope up depression and de motivation. Actual answer is expected. Rather than diplomatic.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. Your depression needs to be evaluated, if mild option is cbt, cognitive behavior therapy alone or along with medicines, if moderate both, if severe, medication s mainly and later cbt.

I am 25 years old married woman and also pursuing my masters, I lost my mother in cancer, 3 years back and since then I feel lonely and helpless even if I have all other friends and family to support me. I lost my confidence too. Is it a sign of depression? What can be done about it?

I think you need to look at handling your grief and dealing with your mother's loss once and for all. This could put you into a sadness related depression but you will be able to come out of it if you express your grief in totality and effectively. The sooner you do it the better for your studies. 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 things, 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.

Hi. In old age loss of memory may be due to some dementing disorder like alzheimer's or due to some psychiatric illness. Along with that if similar history is present in family, there is more chance for same. So please visit a neuropsychiatrist for further management.

I have severe headache for the past 1 week. I feel very depressed and could not sleep properly. Please guide me.
You are having severe headache for last 1 week then what is stopping you from going to a doctor? please consult a doctor at the earliest. There are a number of reason for headache. It can be because of weak eye sight, stress, indigestion, cold, or may be because of the heat etc. The doctor will check you and tell you what is causing this headache. If you are depressed and are unable to sleep and if you know the reason, what is causing this, then please try to analyse the situation. If you are under stress because of some problems try to see how many options you have to come out of the situation. Weigh pros and cons of each option and then take the option most suitable for you. If you are feeling stuck talk to your elders in the family. Or else seek some professional guidance. Please don't suffer silently like this. Take some action. All the best.

If severe depression and you want quick recovery, you can discuss with your psychiatrist and opt for ECT which is the qucikest antidepressant, after recovery you can maintain with mood stabilizers. Contrary to popular opinion ECT is a painless and very safe procedure, so do not get offended for suggesting this, I am doing so for your good only. All the best.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Goals are always set according to a persons skills and desire. You should know your dormant skills. Once you know them you can pursue a career path based on those skills and you will be success. There is a psychometric test which measures your dormant abilities and skills. Contact me for that test. To have confidence and decision making skills, you need experience. Know your skills, set a goal, pursue career path, gain experience and knowledge. You are success. Take care.

It could be due to stress that you face the issues. Try to keep your thoughts away from the issues, go for walks, listen to some music, try and meditate for a few minutes everyday. Basically try to stay relaxed and keep your thoughts away from unwanted issues.

I Can give you study tip and you make your mind happy. 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Dear Mahendra, Depression is common in a diabetic and hypertensive. Depression affects quality of life. It has been going on for 10 years. Don't you think, that you deserve something better in life? There is no short term medicine. Antidepressant tablets take 2-3 weeks to start acting on brain chemicals. Even after improvement, it needs to be maintained for many months. Alternately you can go for Cognitive therapy since your routine functions are not affected.
