Depression In Children - Causes And Symptoms

Depression In Children - Causes And Symptoms

Depression in children is not a very uncommon phenomenon. But if the feeling of sadness persists over a period of time with little or no change to their behavior, then it can be seen as a symptom of depression. Children who are suffering from depression need immediate and utmost care as negligence may cause severe long term effects on the child. Read on to find more about them.

 

Symptoms that indicate childhood depression vary. Some of the different symptoms which indicate depression are:

  1. Social withdrawal
  2. Irritability
  3. Feeling of worthlessness
  4. Difficulty in concentrating
  5. Reduced ability to function during events
  6. Continuous feelings of sadness
  7. Physical complaints

Causes:

  1. Depression in children can be caused due to the combination of a multitude of reasons.
  2. Children from a family history of depression are more likely to be suffering from depression.
  3. Similarly if the parents suffer from depression then it is more than likely that the child will also suffer from depression.
  4. Children from conflicted families or children and teens who are prone to substance or alcohol abuse can suffer from depression.
  5. Reasons such as physical health, environment, genetic vulnerability or biochemical disturbance can lead to depression.

Treatment:

The treatment process of depression in children is similar to that of adults and can be treated with psychotherapy and medication. If your child is depressed consult a Pediatrician who after his or her diagnosis may refer you to a psychiatrist. The medical specialist will recommend psychotherapy or medication. In some instances, a child suffering from depression may be suicidal. Parents are advised to be vigilant and observe certain behavioral changes that the child may have adapted to or suddenly switched to. Some of the signs are mentioned below:

  1. Changes in eating, sleeping or activities
  2. Isolating oneself even from family
  3. Talking of suicide, feeling helpless or hopeless
  4. Increased risk taking behavior
  5. Substance abuse
  6. Giving away possessions

Psychotherapy or antidepressant medication use is usually depending on the predominant symptoms and the severity of depression. The best results often result from a combination of prescribed medication along with multiple sessions of psychotherapy. We must understand that depression is just another disease with is treatable like any other illness so do not hesitate in seeking professional help.

The toxins in cigarette smoke thickens your blood, triggers plaque buildup, makes it harder for your blood to carry oxygen and increases risk of blood cloting. Carbon monoxide replaces oxygen in your red blood cells, decreasing your energy.

4 Reasons Why You Should Avoid Stress For A Better Sex Life!

4 Reasons Why You Should Avoid Stress For A Better Sex Life!

Stress and sex is a bad combination, as it is a well known fact that it is because of stress that a person's love and intimate life often suffers. Listed below are few ways in which stress can affect your sex life:

  1. Negative body image: The hormones associated with stress are capable of affecting your metabolism. If you gain weight or feel sluggish, it makes you feel bad about your own body, which in turn hinders your desire to initiate sex. A lower self-image leads to less amount of sex and in turn, creates relationship problems. One of the main sources of stress can be your relationship; if you cannot nurture it, it might lead to elevation of stress.
  2. Negative effect on libido: Cortisol is a hormone that is produced by stress. It is needed by the body in small doses and over short periods of time. Increase in stress over a period of time results in increased levels of cortisol, which lead to suppression of sex hormones. Lower amount of sex hormones results in lower libido.
  3. Excessive drinking: It is of common knowledge that people drink to relieve stress. Maximum times, increased stress levels lead to excessive drinking. Men have difficulty having erections after they drink too much. In women, excess alcohol causes dehydration, resulting in reduced lubrication. These problems lead to dull sex.
  4. Impact on fertility and menstrual cycle: In women, stress affects the pituitary gland, which is responsible for the thyroid, ovaries and adrenal glands. Improper functioning of the ovaries can adversely affect the menstrual cycle. Periods might become irregular or menstruation might stop. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Sleepwalking. Sleepwalking, formally known as somnambulism, is a behavior disorder that originates during deep sleep and results in walking or performing other complex behaviors while asleep. It is much more common in children than adults and is more likely to occur if a person is sleep deprived. Relaxation techniques, mental imagery, and anticipatory awakenings are the preferred treatment options for long-term treatment of people with a sleepwalking disorder. Anticipatory awakenings consist of waking the child or person approximately 15-20 minutes before the usual time of a sleepwalking episode, and then keeping him or her awake through the time during which the episodes usually occur. Relaxation and mental imagery techniques are most effective when done with the help of an experienced behavioral therapist or hypnotist.

If your pain is not because of some trauma then it may be because of some deep vein thrombosis for which you need to get an arterial doppler and consult a surgeon immediately as it may progress fast.

She is suffering from mental problem and she is taking quel sr50 and other one. She was consulted to two physiatrist but she didn't get well even after taking medicine. She remain well for some period bt she change without any reason. She roam around here and there n sometimes says something .I assume it's just because that she couldn't control her mind .she think too much .I guess this might be the reason of mental problem. Is there a meditation center for such patient where she can control her mind and get well.

Dear Jigmet, I think we need to review the diagnosis and medicines. Quetiapine 50 mg is a low dose of medication. Also, we do not have information regarding the other medicine. Also, the information provided here seems to suggest a definite problem but to wxactly pin point the details, we need a detailed interview. Meditation will certainly be a useful adjunct to medicines, but the two are not interchangeable and both need to be done properly. I suggest a review of the medicines and diagnosis for this reason. Take care!

Be positive. Look for what future holds for you. Every morning say to yourself - each day is better than each passing day. Do some early morning physical workout like jogging or yoga and move on for a fresh start. At times, lack of enough physical activity also causes depression like feeling.

This could be a symptom of obsessive compulsive disorder. It cannot be treated with sleep medicines. But the easier way to treat it is with medicines (NOT sleeping pills). There is a way of treating it without medicines, in the form of behavior therapy. But this will take more time and effort from the patient's side. Please give us some more details of the symptoms so that we can help you better with a tailor made plan. Take care!

Dear lybrate-user. You have to understand that each person is unique and their character is unique. You will be having a lot of good aspects and some negative aspects. The negative and positive aspects constitute a personality. You will change your character and behavior according to prevailing circumstances if it is a compulsion. Such a change is natural and inevitable. Therefore don't worry about what you are now. Just be positive and proud about your positive aspects. Take care.

I had to move to a different city for studying in a college. I'm a single child and my parents are very over protective about me. Thats why my mother decided to come with me and stay together in a rented house. My mom is a house wife and dad has his business back home. Although dad keeps vising for a good 10-15 dats every month, yet mom has to stay alone in d house d rest of d days when dad isnt around. Every time dad leaves, my mom kees crying the entire day and stays very irritated. She creates a scene and scolds me over trivial reasons. She loves me a lot and doesnt let me do anything on my own. She doesnt even let me go to college and come home alone.She drops me and picks me up as well. She is skeptical about me going anywhere outside college campus with my friends. Although i avoid going out with friends but on some days i have to go out in order to participate in extra curricular activities of college. On such days, my mother would be very concerned and would worry a lot. My mother has diabetes,high blood pressure etc and if she takes tension it adversely affects her health. Sumtimes she drops me to college and den i go out of college meet friends and den come back to college. I dont like the way she tries to control my life. From what i eat to what i ear and everything else she controls me.I hv told her that i can stay in a hostel but she says she cant live without me and also that i cant take care if myself. When dad is away she keeps calling dad all the time which makes dad feel guilty as well. We tell her something as to how she can keep herself busy with books or exercise or some creative classes. We tell her that she needs to give me some space and that i'm not a 10 year old anymore. But when we say all this, she cries or gets angry and her blood pressure gets high etc. She has sacrificed a lot for the family but she needs to understand that each one us are also individuals and we all need to have a life of our own. I feel like running away somewhere or just dying. Right now each one of us is frustrated. What do i do?

You all need family therapy. Your mom?s mothering is smothering, isn?t it? She is refusing to cut the apron strings even now! I like that she loves you so much but it should not stifle your growth and independence. All people, and particularly children seek Permission and Protection to grow, develop, and become independent. It is not the equal use of both but a discrete use of one over the other for the singular purpose of growing up and away of the dependent person. You must talk to the college counselor and get him/her to intervene. But the greatest proof would be for her to see that you are a responsible person by the way you conduct your life and studies. Now I know it could turn out to be ?a chicken or the egg? situation, where you may feel justified that you can?t be responsible without the provision of that kind of opportunity or permission. However, do not get into that futile argument but prove yourself to her. Then talk to dad too and get him to assure her. She obviously gets worked up over little or no reason, which is why she may have all those medical complications. Someone has to become firm and take a strong stance. It all sounds good on the surface but what she is inadvertently doing is stifling your growth and self-confidence. I do not recommend that you do sneaky things behind her back because that is no solution to over-protective parents. This whole manner will disturb your healthy development. Parents? love must ensure the healthy personality formation while they are in charge. At a certain age that is relinquished to enable independence. So you must do something either through the college (try the counselor or the principal), through dad, and of course through your responsible behavior. A professional will also help by reminding your mom to sever the umbilical cord. So it is all up to you to maneuver, in a gracious manner, this healthy outcome for your own good. Let me know how it goes. I am fully with you, and would love to be of some help. Let?s see what initiative you take. The single child status does not help at all for these reasons, particularly.

My younger brother has always saying that someone is tracking me. Is this caused by depression.
Feeling that" someone is tacking me" could be a kind of suspicion that someone is against him and trying to harm him. The level of suspicion along with any other forms of symptoms may help in clinching the diagnosis. This does not seem to be classically a symptom of depression.
