Dear lybrate user. I can understand. I am afraid you can not do anything in this regard except talk to him, find out why he is irritated, love him and care him as he is a child. In face he has become a child mentally. This happens to all elderly people. Treat him in that perspective.

It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all. Some risk factors for men developing depression or anxiety include: •Physical health problems •Relationship problems •Employment problems •Social isolation •Significant change in living arrangements (e.g. Separation or divorce) •Pregnancy and birth of a baby •Drug and alcohol use. Symptoms of depression in women include: •Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" mood. •Loss of interest or pleasure in activities, including sex. •Restlessness, irritability, or excessive crying. •Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness, hopelessness, pessimism. •Sleeping too much or too little, early-morning awakening. Depression in women differs from depression in men in several ways: •Depression in women may occur earlier, last longer, be more likely to reoccur, be more likely to be associated with stressful life events, and be more sensitive to seasonal changes •Women are more likely to experience guilty feelings and attempt suicide, although they actually commit suicide less often than men •Depression in women is more likely to be associated with anxiety disorders, especially panic and phobic symptoms, and eating disorders •Depressed women are less likely to abuse alcohol and other drugs •Symptoms of depression in MEN include: •Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" mood. •Feelings of hopelessness, pessimism. •Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness. •Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed, including sex. •Decreased energy, fatigue, being "slowed down" Depression is a serious but treatable medical condition that can strike anyone regardless of age, ethnic background, socioeconomic status, or gender. However, depression may go unrecognized by those who have it, their families and friends, and even their physicians. Men, in particular, may be unlikely to admit to depressive symptoms and seek help. But depression in men is not uncommon: Symptoms of depression include: •Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" mood •Feelings of hopelessness, pessimism •Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness •Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed, including sex •Decreased energy, fatigue, being "slowed down" •Difficulty concentrating, remembering, making decisions •Trouble sleeping, early-morning awakening, or oversleeping •Appetite and/or weight change •Thoughts of death or suicide, or suicide attempts •Restlessness, irritability •Persistent physical symptoms, such as headaches, digestive disorders, and chronic pain, which do not respond to routine treatment Depression facts •A depressive disorder is a mood disorder that is characterized by a sad, blue mood that goes above and beyond normal sadness or grief. •A depressive disorder is a syndrome, meaning a group of symptoms. •Depressive disorders are feature not only negative thoughts, moods, and behaviors but also specific changes in bodily functions (like, eating, sleeping, energy and sexual activity). •One in 10 people will have a depression in their lifetime. •Because depression can lead to self-harm including suicide, it is important to note that one of every 25 suicide attempts results in death. •Some types of depression, especially bipolar depression, run in families. •While there are many social, psychological, and environmental risk factors for developing depression, some are particularly prevalent in one gender or the other, or in particular age or ethnic groups. •There can be some differences in symptoms of depression depending on age, gender, and ethnicity. •Depression is only diagnosed clinically in that there is no laboratory test or X-ray for depression. It is therefore crucial to see a health professional as soon as you notice symptoms of depression in yourself, your friends, or family. •The first step in getting appropriate treatment is a complete physical and psychological evaluation to determine whether the person, in fact, has a depressive disorder. •Depression is not a weakness but a serious illness with biological, psychological, and social aspects to its cause, symptoms, and treatment. A person cannot will it away. Untreated or undertreated, it can worsen or return. •There are many safe and effective medications, particularly the SSRIs, that can be of great help in the treatment of depression. Treatment- A variety of treatments, including medications and short-term psychotherapies (i.e. "talking" therapies), have proven effective for depressive disorders: more than 80 percent of people with a depressive illness improve with appropriate treatment. Not only can treatment lessen the severity of depression, but it may also reduce the duration of the episode and may help prevent additional bouts of depression.

If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session 5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions.

Hello, Anxiety, which often is associated with insomnia and feelings of fear, is due primarily to aggravation of vata dosha in the nervous system. So to heal anxiety, we have to balance vata. Here are several effective Ayurvedic remedies to pacify vata, heal anxiety and fear, and improve your sleep. CALMING TEA. Make a tea of the following herbs: tagar or valerian 1 part musta 1 part Steep ½ teaspoon of these herbs in 1 cup hot water for 5 to 10 minutes, and drink. This formula effectively pacifies vata and reduces anxiety. You can drink this tea twice a day. RELAXING BATH. A warm bath of ginger and baking soda will help you pacify anxiety. Use ⅓ cup ginger and ⅓ cup baking soda in a tubful of water. Soak for 10 to 15 minutes. ALMOND MILK. Almond milk helps to eliminate anxiety. Soak about 10 raw (not toasted) almonds overnight in water. Peel off the skins, and put the almonds in the blender. Add 1 cup warm milk. While blending, add a pinch of ginger and a small pinch of nutmeg and saffron. ORANGE JUICE. For anxiety accompanied by a fast heart rate, a cup of orange juice with 1 teaspoon of honey and a pinch of nutmeg powder can be effective. CALMING PRESSURE POINT. Make a fist with your left hand, so that the fingers rest in the middle of the palm. Locate the point where the middle finger ends, in the “heart” of the palm. Then, with the thumb of your right hand, press firmly on this point in the center of your left hand. Press for 1 minute. This will calm down the agitation of prana, which causes anxiety. Hope this helps.

Hello lybrate-user, You appear to have symptoms of anxiety disorder. The best treatment would be a combination of medications and psychotherapy sessions. But it appears you don't want medicines. In that case you should take therapy sessions. The most effective therapy is called cognitive behaviour therapy wherein the therapist works along with you on the faulty thinking practices that are often seen in anxiety disorders. Further certain relaxation techniques can be used that will decrease the symptom. I suggest that you see a psychiatrist/clinical psychologist at the earliest.

Hi my name is Saikat and my age is 32yrs. Presently I am suffering from depression and negativity. I never had faced like this ever before. I found that I am running out of confidence and feel like I will fail in everything that I will do. I am a banker and is into this profession for last 8 yrs. I had passed through all my assignments and got all my promotions throughout my carrier. But for the last one year I am going down and also missed my promotion once. I know presently the team and the branch I am handling, is a branch with negativity indisciplined non-professionals people and there demotivating and negativity effected me a lot. But another reason is that I feel that I started thinking about my x-gf a lot and sometimes wen I am too much depressed about my work and personal life and also with my married life or arguments with my wife or nagging of my wife, I feel like I might be more happy, if I had married my Ex. I am confused with her and my wife. My wife is 8 months pregnant and taking full care of her and maintaining all her requirements, I come with a regular complain from her that I cannot forget my Ex and still I am in love with her. And this allegation sometimes make me confused that whether I still love my Ex-GF or that I can not forget her and also feel like if I had stand against my family and might had married her, would I be more happier. She was my first GF and I had good quality time with her as I was young and had ample time to spent with her. But presently I am so much bough down with my work that I have hardly quality time to spent with my wife. I am confused with she and my wife. Sometimes I feel that I still miss her a lot. Sometimes I forget about her totally and only think about my wife. And also people around me in my office now a days are so much negative that I also started feel like them that nothing will happen good in my life. I failed to crack many interviews in last few months due to lack of confidence. I was never like this before. Please guide me in this matter and help me to come out from this situation.

Dear lybrate user, you are 32 and your professional life is expected to be very busy at this stage in your life. You have achieved most of your goals till now, and hence missing this promotion is a big set back for you. But please understand that there will be set backs in life, and they are temporary. It is possible that you missed this promotion not because of lack of performance, but because of somehting else. You can try harder next time. Regarding your personal life, it appears that you are getting pulled towards both - your ex girl friend and your wife. It is advisable for you to concentrate on your present than your past. If you are unable to spare time for your wife, she might be feeling lonely and not loved. Try to spend quality time with her. Girl friend and wife have different roles in life. Wife will demand certain things which you might think as" nagging" listen" to her, understand her needs. She herself must be under stress, as she is in the advance stage of pregnancy. I think you need" closure" of your relationship with your exgirl friend. Unless you do this closure you will not be able to give 100% to your wife. This uncertainty of feelings is disturbing your professional life. Consult a counsellor so that you are aware of your actual thoughts and feelings. More of self awareness would help you to take rational decisions. Once you are clear about your own feelings and what you want from life, things will become easier for you. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, sex is a physical urge/need. It helps in emotional connect as well. Having good sexual relations with your partner will keep you both connected emotionally and committed to each other. But sex is not a daily chore, for which you can have a fixed time or interval. Hence there is no hard and fast rule for having or not having sex on daily basis. A couple can enjoy sex when they both feel the urge and are ready physically and emotionally. The frequency depends on their mutual need and capacity. Sex is also not just a physical activity. It is a way to connect and develop bond with your partner, way to seek and express love to each other. So do not worry about the frequency. What is more important is that both the partners need to be ready for it. And the feeling/urge needs to come from within. I think it would be very helpful if you seek pre-maital conselling for either both or at least you can talk to a counsellor. There are many aspects to married life, which you need to understand before marriage to have a successful marriage. Good luck.

I have poor memory and useto forget the things which I instant do. Also I keep thinking much all time and goes on deep thoughts.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.
