Hello, I am having this psychological/neurological problem since 2011 after I met with a serious accident which caused internal-bleeding and blood clotted in my brain but it got fine with medication and no surgery was required. Then my doctor prescribed me 'Epsolin tablets for around a year. The composition of tablet is Phenytoin Sodium (100 mg). To be frank, It took me 8-9 months to fully recover physically and mentally. Then during that time-period I faced this problem which is explained below: It happens for one full day. On that day, When I wake up in the morning I am totally depressed and my head feels heavy. Thoughts of death come to mind so often. Then a memory blinks in my mind which is always related to some adventurous nightmare I saw previously. When this memory blinks, my heartbeat fastens and feel dizzy for 9-10 seconds and then recover. This keeps happening until I go to sleep at night and wake up next morning. It totally takes me two days to fully recover from this state of mind. Facts: 1. Intensity of the effect which occurs after blink is reduced since starting. 2. Frequency of the problem is also less now. As I mentioned in the description it happens once a month now. 3. Nightmares which blinks in my mind are always those which I saw on the same day previously. It is full of adrenaline rush for example someone chasing me, hanging from an aeroplane etc. 4. I have never explained this to anyone. I tried once but none could understand it. I couldn't even find out that whom should I consult. 5. I have tried sleeping during day to see if it goes away after that nap but it was not working. It still remains until night sleep. Please help me. Tell me something. I am so confused. Thank you in advance.

These are all symptoms of anxiety, which might even be related to your handling of the stress of the accident. Try simple methods like yoga and meditation, and a daily walk to soothe your mynd and exercise your body. If this fails, meet a Psychiatrist.

I am getting to to much of angry. Particularly husband and my kid only. I am keep on fighting .No happiness. No enjoyments I don't how to control. Can you me solution.

Hi Lybrate user you can manage your anger by proper take care of your self. Try some relaxation technique like breathing exercise. Identify your hobby and do some of your favourite activities, like singing, listening music, talk to friend etc. Time to time give yourself a treat you will feel much better and try to enjoy your life. When you feel your anger escalating try to do some physical activities. Think before you speak and when you feel yourself calm express your views. Always remind yourself that anger won't fix anything but create many problems. But if your anger seems out of control you can opt counselling sessions. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Take care.

I had a fun life a year ago. Had two close friends, a girl and a boy. We used to hangout with our friends every week and party quite frequently. We were too close as we shared many ups and downs of our lives together. But then I started liking the girl knowing the fact that those two love each other. And this somehow led me to become frustrated, irritated and reckless, which, at the end, resulted in a fight with them. The boy already left to his hometown 6 months back. I have been in touch with the girl, but always failed to behave normally to her. Now even she is leaving the city and moving back to her hometown. A lot of things coming into my mind, sadness, frustration, guilty and many more. This is effecting my work. Also, I feel directionless about my future. Having a difficult time. Feeling depressed. Can someone please help

Well you were not a good friend, if you tried to make out with this girl when you knew she was in love with the other friend. Both of them must be disappointed and angry with you because they must have trusted you when you were close to them. Now that the boy is gone, you are still pursuing this girl, clearly not respecting their relationship. It often happens that with a lot of exposure to girls, you can fall in love with one of them, easily. That does not mean you can just barge in into another existing relationship. This is a lack of trust and respect. You must apologize to both of them, and look elsewhere for another girl. Anyway, it is not right that you love a girl and that she has to also fall in love with you. She must also genuinely feel love for you. It looks like she does not, and therefore, you must move on. Of course this will affect your work but it is for all the wrong reasons that you are feeling so bad. If you are true to yourself, you know that this is not right and therefore you must act like a gentleman and do the right thing. Do not repeat this ever again: nobody will trust you and your reputation may become tarnished. You must apologize and make amends with these two and hope that they will put this incident behind them. Do not spoil good relations for your own agenda. There are a lot of girls around, so stop obsessing about this girl.

i am suffering from mental depression please help me out. That why sometimes I want screaming and cry.

i am suffering from mental depression please help me out. That why sometimes I want screaming and cry.
Hi, Feeling down or blue is a natural part of life. People let us down, things go wrong, we lose people we love or the dreams we've valued. When feeling down stretches over weeks or months, is occurring frequently and interfering with your ability to interact with people and enjoy your life, it is likely that you're experiencing some form of depression. Provided that you're able to access information and have a good doctor and support network around you, even severe depression is a highly treatable condition. Along with medication psychotherapy from psychologist is a important adjunct. Firstly, you will have to make few lifestyle changes: Sleep well. Sleep is essential to a healthy, balanced body. Lack of sleep can aggravate negative thinking and easily becomes a vicious cycle whereby your negative thoughts keep you awake and disable your ability to get enough sleep. Waking unrefreshed and feeling tired is a common complaint during depression, and even too much sleep can leave depressed persons feeling tired. Breaking this cycle requires enforcing a strict sleep routine of the same bedtime and waking time every day, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, not exercising three hours prior to bed, removing anything distracting from your bedroom, and keeping your room at a suitable temperature. Exercise releases a natural anti-depressant chemical in your brain and gets you into doing something active. Start small with a simple walk to the local store or around the block, or to your garden gate might be the way to begin. Gradually work up to a routine that fits with your needs and enjoyment. Look for friends or group exercise sessions since having a partner will keep you more motivated. You can also look for activities that will allow you to release some of the pent-up emotions that may be built up, such as kickboxing. Playing sports is a great way to get regular exercise, stay occupied, focus on self-improvement and meet new people. Some studies have found that people who participate in sports have somewhat fewer symptoms of depression. Choose a sport that is exhausting to quiet the chatter in your mind and leave you feeling wrung out—just don't overdo it. Join a team or class in your area and commit to showing up to as many of these meetings as possible, even if you may not feel like going some days. Eat healthy. Reduce your intake of sugar, high fructose corn syrup, fast foods, and processed foods. Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole foods. Drink plenty of water and do some research on foods that are said to improve your state of mind and well-being. Improving your diet can be a positive project to keep you constructively occupied and focused when you're working through your depression. Plus, many healthy foods are effective at improving mood Talk with friends, family and colleagues who make you feel good and who are good to be around. Spend time with people who see the world in a positive way and ask them to share their visions, ideas, and approaches to life with you. Most positive people will be more than happy to reveal the things that help them keep upbeat and happy about their lives. Learn from them. Remember that misery loves company. It can be incredibly hard to keep away from negative people as down and out as you're feeling, but do your best to avoid them. You won't be doing either of you a favor by confirming each other's fears that the rest of the world is terrible. Keep occupied. Being busy is a way to prevent negative thoughts from going around your head repeatedly. For depressed persons, the first step is often the hardest, so making yourself do things can be a huge difference in your day and getting you started Start a journal of your journey through your depression. Document your feelings somewhere personal and completely private. This will be the place where you let out your darkest thoughts — no holds barred — because you don't need to worry that anyone will judge you for them. A diary can become your collaborator in the struggle against your depression because it eventually provides you with great evidence of what improves your mood as well as what brings it down. Try to write in it daily if possible. Change your thinking. As part of progressing, recognizing and defeating negative thinking patterns is a very important aspect to concentrate on. Cognitive behavioral therapy, psychotherapy, or other forms of psychological therapy are helpful when you're unlearning negative thinking and establishing patterns of thinking that support your self-esteem and increase your self confidence. While it is best to read up in this area and speak with someone qualified to help guide you through the ways to change your thinking, there are some important things to keep in mind. Acknowledge the feeling will pass. This can be a very difficult step, but it's vital because it helps you to start banishing thoughts of hopelessness. List all of your good points. When you're depressed, it's easy to understate the positive things about yourself. Turn this around by listing everything that is good about you. Include achievements from the past and hopes for the future, however few or random they may seem. If you can't write this list, have a trusted friend or family member start one for you. This is a list to keep building upon as you work through your depression. Self-acceptance is a vital part of recovering from depression because you acknowledge that there are good things about yourself, but also that you have challenges to overcome. This will help you stop judging yourself more harshly than anyone else. Make decisions, however small, and act on them. Again, while this is very difficult to do during depression, it is a vital element in facing the sense of helplessness that tends to overwhelm depressed persons. Small decisions like getting out of bed, calling friends, or cleaning up the kitchen all add up. Once you act on them, they become achievements. Learn how to replace faulty or negative thinking by focusing on it. Ask questions such as: Am I assuming the worst? Am I condemning myself because something bad has happened? Am I focused on my weaknesses rather than my strengths? It is helpful to arrange the negative thought in one column and a rationalization in another column, so that you can confront and undo the negative thinking. In one column you may write the thought" I'm a failure, and in the other you challenge that thought with" I made a mistake. I've made mistakes in the past and things have turned out okay. I've also had many triumphs. Learn assertiveness techniques once you've challenged the harder aspects of your negative thinking processes. Assertive techniques will allow you to find a pathway to standing up for yourself without giving in to feelings of anger, fear, or powerlessness. Knowing how to assert yourself is an important part of not falling back into depressive patterns in the future. Remember, Always keep yourself busy, or doing something positive. Sitting alone, or thinking about all the bad events in your life without expressing them to someone is going to make your depression worsen. Also pratice yoga or meditation. All the best.

Dear sir/ma'am, I am 29 years male wt 78 kgs from the last few months approx 10, I have got shivering in my hand while I am getting angry, even I feel change in my voice and complete shivering in my whole body. Please suggest.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
The reason you shiver when you are angry is because your anger is intense and your nerves are giving way to the emotional outburst. It looks like that your nervous system is weakening under the emotional pressures that you are going through. You could take counselling sessions where you can learn and become self aware about your anger and find positive ways to express your anger and still get your point across. 1. Anger is a normal emotion like joy and happiness and you need not be embarrassed if you get angry. However, if expressed too often and in an unappropriate manner, it not only will harm your health and mental balance, but also impact your work and relationships. 2. Befriend your anger. Don't embrace anger wholly, but keep it at a distance and analyse it by seeing how it looks and feels like to be angry. Where do you feel in in your body and what color and shape is it. The more you understand your anger, it will lose its grip on you and you will be free from that emotion. Thus you have let go of your anger. 3. Use I statements: when arguing and fighting, we blame each other for what went wrong. This makes the fight very ugly and both parties get angry and agitated. Adding instances from the past is like adding fuel to fire. So learning from here, stay with the present issue and refrain from digging up the past. Don't use blaming tone and words. It hurts the other person. Instead, say" when you said/did. I felt very angry that time because I expected you to. Here you are taking responsibility for your anger. Remember no one can make you angry. You are yourself responsible for your emotional state. 4. Be less critical: everyone makes mistakes and nobody is perfect including you. So it's ok if someone has made a small mistake. Can you overlook it and say. Next time please make sure that this doesn't happen again? also, what you may expect may never actually happen because the other person has a different view point. Learn to see different perspectives and try to strike a balance. There is fun in variety. If everyone thinks alike then life will be very boring and repetitive. Forgiveness is a large part of anger management. If you have any queries, please contact me on private chat.

Being charm and happy is very essential for any person. Stress and many other factors can take it away from us in this modern world. If you have any of the symptoms like sleep disturbances, crying spells, staying alone, easy irritability, avoiding family and friends then kindly consult a psychiatrist. If you don't have these symptoms and just feel charm less then take breaks. Have a long weekend trip with family and friends. Do regular exercises. Take proper diet and sleep well. You will settle down with time.

Weight gain after quitting smoking does not increase the risk of heart disease

In a study published in Journal of American Association, researchers from Switzerland have shown that in non?diabetics, weight gain after quitting smoking does not take away the cardiovascular benefits of quitting smoking.

There is a net cardiovascular benefit of smoking cessation despite subsequent weight gain. Smoking cessation is always beneficial for smokers.

People gain 6 to 8 pounds of weight after quitting smoking. In the study, quitting smoking was also linked with a decreased risk of heart attack or cardiac death compared to smokers.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.
