I am a 43yr old male married with a 5 year old child. I am suffering from depression from last 10months. Before that I was living a normal life. I am a working employee. And during this last 10 months I lost interest in life. I don't feel like doing anything. I stopped going out or meet friends and relatives. I just stay at home on weekends either continuously watching TV or browsing the net. My appetite has gone low. I have disturbed sleep. And feel very low in the mornings. I don't talk to my wife nor spend time with my daughter. I am always worried I may loose my job and my family would be destroyed due to my condition. Previously I had depression in 2009 it was for 6-7 months. I suffered depression for the first time in 1996 for a few months again in 2002 for more than an year. During that period I also tried committing suicide by consuming sleeping pills. I tried medication during all this bouts of depression but never completed the course. I don't find any particular reason for finding myself in dep, session. I have stopped allopathy medication due to side effects. I am on homeopathy medication from last 3 months. But I am not finding any difference. Rather I'm feeling more depressed. I am loosing hope.

You have been in treatment in fits and starts and so has your illness. The lack of consistency is one major problem in your approach in the treatment of this condition. The second big drawback is that you have not combined therapy with the medication. It is absolutely a must to work with a counselor and deal with so many other aspects f this condition that in isolation medication cannot be give you the total benefits of combined therapies. The third worst thing that you are doing is to regulate the medication on your own. That is very immature and can only lead to regular relapses. You have what is an anger-related depression and so there will be violence towards self in the form of suicide: you have become your worst enemy. This anger may be rooted in your childhood and it will help to investigate that and locate the genesis and treat the same with some therapy. In the meantime you can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): 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, 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. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: you have a wife and beautiful child. If they don?t experience love from you they may themselves lose the motivation and become depressed. In fact your child is already carrying your genes! Work with a counselor who 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. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. For further assistance you can concern me privately. Take care.

Hi Doctor, I am 22 years old. Usually I am very cool. But in some situations I get tensed and get angry. Please suggest me how to reduce the anger.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS

During that situation take deep breaths for 10-12 times and if possible sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall and upper part of body lying down making 90 degree with legs for 10 mins. Your mind will be relaxed of all stress within 5-7 mins temporarily.

Work–related stress can kill

Job stress raises the risk of heart disease by disrupting the body’s internal systems.

The findings from a long–running study involving more than 10,000 British civil servants also suggest that stress–induced biological changes may play a more direct role than previously thought.

The researchers measured stress among the civil servants by asking questions about their job demands such as how much control they had at work, how often they took breaks, and how pressed for time they were during the day.

The team conducted seven surveys over a 12–year period and found chronically stressed workers – people determined to be under severe pressure in the first two of the surveys – had a 68 percent higher risk of developing heart disease. The link was strongest among people under 50.

Stressed workers also eat unhealthy food, smoke, drink and skip exercise – all behaviors linked to heart disease.

In the study, stressed workers also had lowered heart rate variability – a sign of a poorly–functioning weak heart and higher than normal levels of cortisol, a "stress" hormone that provides a burst of energy for a fight–or–flight response.

Too much cortisol circulating in the blood stream can damage blood vessels and the heart.

Hi lybrate-user, these are withdrawal symptoms of alcohol and ciggerate smoking. Symptoms of alcohol withdrawal can vary widely in severity. In severe cases, the condition can be life-threatening. Symptoms may occur from two hours to four days after stopping alcohol. They may include headaches, nausea, tremors, anxiety, hallucinations and seizures. In many cases, alcohol withdrawal requires medical treatment and hospital admissions. Medications may be used to treat physical symptoms while counselling and support groups help with controlling drinking behavior. So I suggest you consult a psychiatrist for medication and consult a psychologist for psychotherapy- relapse prevention. All the best.

I am 26 years old male, I am facing issues with remembering things.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear , at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are 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, need to check your memory using memory test.

Hi, I am 28 years old married women. I have my neighbors son who is a teenager. And he calls me didi. But yesterday all of a sudden he came to me and directly asked that "Didi can I masturbate" I was very shocked listening that word from him. I asked him to repeat what he said. Then he told me that his friend circle is influencing too much which is making him to watch porn movies. and to masturbate as well. But I refused him to use my toilet to use for all this shit things. and I also advised him that to leave such kind of friend circle and I can understand your feelings at this age it's very common. But you should first concentrate on your studies not on all this porn and masturbation. But I am worried that does he had any such sex thoughts on me which made him to come and ask me so daily. please advise how to handle him. Actually I am a working women so I don't interact with anybody. But still that guy came and spoke to me like that. Is this triggering me something. Or should I just ignore and move on.

You would have already passed on the message to the chap. If he did not get it. Ignore him and he will. At this age most of the boys have common sexual fantasies about almost everyone! the only concern is that he is bold enough to express it! in case he repeats it, you may discuss it with his mother. Or else do not give him attention!

Hello! I have a problem of thinking too much n then it leads to tensions n it occurs mainly in exams. Eg) I said something to someone then after some time I will regret that I have said something wrong. I even feel guilty about things which are useless like if I said something in mzaak (humour) then afterwards I will think that he must have taken it seriously n then I go on replying him on watsapp that I was kidding. It happens mostly in exams when I have a pressure to study and with these all problem I am not able to study coz these all things come in my mind while studying only in exams. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, all the given issues are due to lack of self control. You should learn self control. You are jest 17 and therefore due to the adolescent normal problems, it is natural to people like to have such impulses. Nothing to worry. Relaxation therapy should help you. Please contact a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

Lybrate-user, the levels mentioned are too high, shows totally uncontrolled diabetes. If you are on treatment, it is clear the current treatment is not helpful or grossly inadequate. Needs immediate improvement. Plus I see that you are having a bmi of 34.09 kgs/m2, showing grade 1 obesity. This also contributes to increased blood sugar. So there needs to be - efforts to reduce weight, additional treatment and proper diet control and exercise. With this multi pronged approach we will be able to bring situation under control. Thanks for the question.

How to increase positive energy in our house.

1. Open all windows in the house and allow fresh air and sunshine to enter the house. Free flowing air and sun are negative energy removers.
2. Dispose of all the old unwanted things lying in the house. Clutter is a negativity magnet. It attracts and accumulates negative energy in the house.
3. Walking barefoot in the house helps all your negative energy to be absorbed by the earth. Grounding is important to keep the energy balance in our body.
4. In the olden days, foot wear were kept out of the house. People used to enter the house only after washing feet with water. This action ensures that all the negativity remains outside or are grounded by earth and does not enter the house. Now it has become difficult to keep the footwear outside. So preferably remove them near the entrance door.
5. Go out in the open air. Take walks in the garden or open ground. Being amongst nature re-energizes or charges you fully.
6. Sweeping the floor also ensures that the negative energies are shaken and moved out with the dirt.
7. Rock salt is another negativity remover. Wash or mop your floor with a fistful rock salt in a bucket of water. This ensures that every nook and corner of the house is rid of negative energy.
8. Rotted plants or trees around your house or society also ensures more positive energy in the house and area.
9. Bathing or soaking your legs and hands in rock salt water once in a while removes the negativity attached to your body and cleanse your aura.
10. Repetition of prayers, increases the positive vibrations in the house. 100%
11. Keep your thoughts, action and speech positive. Negative thoughts will bring in negative vibes. So avoid all negative thoughts, speech and actions.
12. Keep your house well lit and illuminated. Light removes negativity.
13. Keep faith in god and in yourself.

You are the creator of your own destiny by the choices you make.

Stay happy

Hello Doctor. My friend has been diagnosed with schizophrenia. What are the symptoms? is it hereditary? what treatmen...
Hello, welcome to lybrate schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterised by paranoia, delusional thinking, hallucinations, disorganised behaviours, conceptual disorganisation, increased aggression, lack of insight, poor judgement, speech disturbances, cognitive impairment, altered sleep-wake cycle and socio-occupational dysfunction. Besides this there are many other symptoms which can be there in patients with schizophrenia. Yes it is hereditary condition, can be transmitted from one generation to other. Schizophrenia is treatable like any other mental illness. Treatment involves pharmacological measures - antipsychotics such as haloperidol, risperidone, olanzapine etc; & psychological interventions such as insight oriented psychotherapy, cbt etc. A comprehensive approach is adopted for its treatment, personalised for the patient only, which would help in complete recovery. Yes a person with schizophrenia can be married. Conjugal relations between patient & partner would depend on the symptomatology of the patient; for example if patient have active paranoia against partner than this would result in increased violence & reduced sexual preferences. If you want to know more about schizophrenia, details about symptoms, management options; you can consult me in private.
