How to stop anxiety? And depression? I can't do it My self to stop anxiety please help me? .sir or madam.
Depression and anxiety tend to go together often times. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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 scorching 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. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A 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. Be positive every day and learn to be contented 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

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.

Dear Lybrate user, 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, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

My wife is a patient of over angry. Really she is get hot talk very fast. Any solution.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, Your wife may be going through hard phase or going through some kind of stress or she may have so many responsibilities, so that she remains busy doing household work and don't get enough time to take care of self or else no one bothers about her and takes her for granted! You should interact with your wife to find out the cause. Most of the time, it's seen that among these common causes one of the cause is there. Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication will help her in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help her inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Give her homoeopathic - Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if she doesn’t has any other medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1.Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2.Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3.Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

Your depression may be connected to the breakup but bipolar is a more serious condition and has deeper ramifications and treatment. The breakup may have precipitated the predisposition to this disease. You need to go for counseling to deal with the bipolar along with the medication and also the issue regarding the breakup. Actually, you may look at how much you may have contributed towards the breakup because of the condition of bipolar. Your behavior may have provoked the bad relationship to lead to its split. You need to focus on your therapeutic treatment and get well soon by good cooperation with both therapies. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of it now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.

One man cannot solve all the problems. At one stage all the problems are come at one time. We cannt expect and imagine that. This stage is common in every one life. But in this stage we should not bend for small issues. Maintain strong status it is important. If we give high priority for small issues. We may be collapsed. Main problem cannot be solved the other problems may come like visiting psychiatrist or using medicine. So in this stage we feel very confident. Take further steps to recover from this status. Problems cannot solved at one day. It may take longer time. But up to that we wait for the right moment. Do not feel strain. It may also caused for physical disorders also. Do not be alone. Share your all feelings and problems with your friends and family members. Maintain very good social relations. Take the help of advice to overcome from this problems. Be happy all the time. Be enjoy every movement of the life. Ok all the best.

Homeopath,
Through homoeopathy it gives very good result.Please do not opt for allopathic medicines.It will just treat patient as a tissue disorder.But such patients need personal attention as a person.Which can be better treated by homeopathy.

Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms. U seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated.

Morbid jealousy, anxiety and depression are mental disorders and not mental diseases. Therefore mental disorders can be cured with the help of psychotherapy, meditation, exercise and lifestyle changes without medicines. Post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.
