I'm a 20 year old boy. I'm suffering from depression. What should I do?
Depression is a loosely termed adjective for feeling sad and upset. If you are suffering from depression, it has to be diagnosed by a psychiatrist. Please avoid staying alone and discuss your problems with someone who is close to you.

Dear, see around you. There are many people out there just like you. Fell in love and got cheated. I mean to say that is an universal problem. That is not called depression but disappointment. Disappointment also triggers symptoms as in the case of depression. One or two counseling sessions should solve your problem. Please let me know if you are willing for telephonic counseling sessions. Take care.

How to stop smoking I am unable to stop. I tried everything chewing gum.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You are not unable to stop. It just feels like that. It is difficult no doubt but you must keep trying again and again. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Is it possible to OD on morphine tablets? Like take, about 30-40 tablets, crush them, and drink it up with a juice or something? Will it kill me? If not instantly, but given a few hours? My sister keeps talking about it and says it's almost painless. We're getting her help, for all it matters but I want to know if this is even reasonable. She's staying alone in another country for now, thankfully doesn't have access to any opiates. But I just want to know for my sanity, what can possibly be expected if such course of action is taken? I know by the outlook it seems suicidal, but is it? The last time she OD'd on her anti depressants, someone rushed her to the hospital, they put liquid charcoal through her nose and after a few days, she was back on her feet. I don't know much about opiates, let alone morphine. Depression kinda runs in the family so it's natural for her to sometimes slump into such a phase. I want you to be as objective and factual as possible. I have tried asking doctors and friends around me but they look at me suspiciously and do not give any information. There's only so much available on the internet. So yeah. I'm relying on you Not ER or SR. So I'm guessing pretty normal. Take into account she is opiate naive. So the OD is not like the ones that happen with sleeping pills and anti depressants where you vomit your guts out? I read a guy say you can choke on your own vomit. Asphyxia is the prime reason you slip. Some said it's very peaceful and you quietly die in your sleep.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
It is just for your information only. If someone has overdose of morphine than following effects are observed on respiratory system- breathing becomes slow and oxygen saturation decreases heart - heart rate becomes slow and contraction of the heart muscle becomes slow cns - person can feel sleepy, pupils are not dilated and remain as pinpoint and there is decrease in oxygen saturation in brain abdomen- person can vomit and also can loose control over stools and urine leading to incontenence and the person can die and I will suggest your sister to contact a psychiatrist and start with anti depressants drug.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

One doctor told me that, if weight is lost due to chronic anxiety or stress, both LDL and hdl will fall. So my mind forces me to take anxiety or stress to reduce LDL cholesterol. I'm underweight, my weight is losing. But many doctors say that if weight is lost due to anxiety, hdl will decrease and LDL will increase.

Male 26 yrs, having fear that no one is with me although I live with my joint family of 11 members (including me). Say if I divert my mind in some work then its ok but post completion of that event the same thought of loneliness is on my mind and which makes me cry sometimes. Don't have much friends n which I have are busy in their own lives which is normal. Sometimes I feel like to kill myself but on the other hand I have my family too, also I am newly married but my wife doesn't feel to talk too much or express, she only keep finding demerits in others as she thinks she is so smart n other are idiot. 6 months ago I got married n We have hardly lived 60 days together and if bifurcate the days we had lived together then calculation would be 60 days = 50 days of fighting + 10 days normal (may be). No doubt I am trying my best in this relationship but her words are THE MARRIAGE WAS DONE JUST BECAUSE HER FAMILY HAD FORCED HER. I am emotional guy which means WORDS HIT ME HARDER THEN PUNCHES. Don't know how to get rid of tension. Even I had word with my family in this regards but all of them says it will take sometime to get all issues resolved. My wife is a very good liar, at the time of our marriage she said there was minor injury in her waist but on our wedding night she told me that she is suffering from Pott's Spine/ Bone TB. Although she had recovered alot from that time but if I ask something from her she says I DON'T REMEMBER even she forget what had happen 2-3 days back and take cover and says MAY BE MEMORY IS GETTING WEAK DUE TO THE MEDICINES OF BONE TB. Even after all this I am ready to accept her but she is very careless also had word with her in this regards and she said WE CAN SEPARATE IF YOU WANT BUT I WILL NOT GO MY HOME OR I WILL SUICIDE OR WILL GO SOME ANONYMOUS PLACE WHERE NOBODY WILL KNOWS ME. She's 23 and we both are from different regions I am from delhi and she is from UP but our family background are from same caste and religion, she is educated but I am still not able to trace out why this is happening to me. Usually I talk too much but with limited people but everyone is busy in their own life which good but I need some hope of light for my life. Please suggest me something.

If you are experiencing these symptoms more often, then you need to seek help. These are the symptoms of depression. Also, if you are thinking about harming yourself, you need to tell someone right away. Because depression can drain you of energy and hope, taking the first step can be hard. Start getting help for depression by telling someone how you feel. If you don't have the will to call the doctor and make an appointment, a friend or loved one can do it for you. Your doctor can also decide if you have clinical depression or if your depression is due to another medical condition. Your marital issues will also be taken care during your session with the psychologist or psychiatrist. Getting help for depression starts with reaching out. So please go ahead and seek help.

I feel very irritated most of the times and get angry very easily. I have social anxiety. I can't make eye contact while talking and when I do my concentration level is zero. I was taking feliz s-10 last year for couple of months but this resulted in memory loss. It was prescribed by a doctor. I stopped taking the medicine. I felt very comfortable even after stopping the use of medicines but this comfort lasted for some months only and I started getting panic attacks. I can't talk to people comfortably. I can't even make eye contact with my mother sometimes while talking. I behave weirdly in social gatherings. I feel unwanted in groups. I don't know what to do. In addition these days I start feeling irritated if I find something dirty. I shout on everyone if things are not clean. I know this is not normal. Help.

Dear Lybrate-user Everyone is different so don't get fear from any thing, as much you will think on this topic then by passing each day you will feel nervous and low confidence. So first of all stop blaming yourself its your nature and its not necessary that everyone will respond same in same situation for example after break up few guys becomes so depress that they commits suicide and some get easily move on after 2-3 days but it does't mean that the guy who commits suicide is mentally ill. I am not saying that you cannot change yourself you can ,what it demands is change in your approach. You can take help of any counsellor regarding this, if you need my help you can contact me online.in the mean time why don' t you follow my few suggestions. Make some good friends, try to interact as much as you can, remember one thing any one whether head of any state or any slum area's people god has given equal hand ,eyes, ear etc .what makes difference in people is their approach so treat everyone as like same in 126 crore population ,its ok that presently he is in different role and you are in different role ,So he is playing his role and you are playing your. Think about one thing, if anyone be in theatre then will there be any difference for ticket checker? Divert your mind ,develop some new hobbies. Take care.

Every thought or feeling that comes in your mind / brain is natural. Homosexual thoughts are very common in both men and women. 100% of people in the world have them. If you are attracted to your wife and have a stable and happy married life, then I would suggest that you treat these thoughts just like a heterosexual attraction. Just like you would brush away feelings of attraction towards another woman, ignore these thoughts and feelings as straying of the mind. Calling a thought unimportant is the best way to help it fade away. The more you pay attention to it, stronger it becomes. However, if the attraction you feel is very strong, you are unhappy in your marriage, you feel uncomfortable in your current sexual role, then it's time to introspect who you really are. What you do about it is another matter all together.

Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol Or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre . Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

And improve concentration try meditation yoga music therapy follow a diary of your self time table so that you can have an organised day and can avoid distractions.

You seem to be over occupied with your own thought process. Yes being introvert is one of the reasons for the way you feel. You are reading too much between the lines and so your concentration on the happenings around you is less and you think you are absent minded. You have got a kind of guilty conscience about your so called bad qualities, which can be corrected by sincere efforts. Having sugar level 135 is not anything which you have to worry for. The feeling of weakness might be due to your negative thoughts and loss of appetite and poor nutrition. The same may be the cause of mouth ulcers. Think on a positive note and many things can change dramatically.
