I always feel alone depressed? How can I feel somehow better meanwhile my exams are close.

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist,
I always feel alone depressed? How can I feel somehow better meanwhile my exams are close.
If you are feeling worthlessness, sadness and lack of hope than you may be suffering from depression. It is a debilitating condition that can prevent you from enjoying your life. Although it may be difficult to enjoy previous feeling of happiness. You can take control of your depression by increasing social support, changing your thinking and by increasing your physical health. These are the method to overcome it. 1. Talk to a psychologist /psychiatrist/therapist a psychologist or a therapist will be able to help you work through the issues you are going through at this time. He or she will also educate you about your depression and will further guide you the right line of action to be taken. 2. Spend time with positive people social support is crucial to getting out of a depression and can be very helpful for you to cope with stress full life. Support from positive people can also help to reduce negative thoughts that lead to depression. Please find those people in your life who make a positive impact on your daily functioning. Your friends, family members or co-members should be encouraging and you should enjoy their company. Please go out and do small small things with them [ like listening music, watching movies, walking, reading etc.]. Please create distance with people you know cause you anxiety or who are not supportive. Spending time with them will surely worsen your condition and make it harder to feel enthusiastic about recovery. Plan a short vacation with positive people. 3. Physical contact hug a friend hold hands play with your pet or dog 4. Always think positive and realistically negative thoughts are trademark of depression. This means you get struck thinking the same negative thoughts over and over again. Write down all the bad negative thoughts you have and create a positive thought for each negative thought you wrote down. For example I am ugly, please write I am unique and beautiful. I dont need any approval. 5. Compliment yourself for small small things. 6. Please avoid alcohol, cigarettes or any kind of substance abuse.

To break that fatigue it is advisable to drink or eat protein and mineral food which would be a reservoir for you to store the energy. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having body pain and laxity through out.

My mother had SDH - Craniotomy operation 1.5 month ago. Now she cant speak still she try to speak but cant speak clear to understand sometime she speaks 1-2 word clearly. What should do?

MPT
Physiotherapist, Cuttack
You could consult a speech therapist or make her read things like we use to do when we were kids. One alphabet at a time, then very small words, then small words and progress gradually. Don't stop talking to her as this will motivate her to speak. Thank you.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Drug induced anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Take care.

I just can't quit smoking. How can you help? I am not a chain smoker but its just that it has become a habit!

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
STOP SMOKING Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Top 4 Ways You Can Increase Your Willpower
Top 4 Ways You Can Increase Your Willpower

There are days when you wake up but you don’t want to move out of the bed. When your alarm goes off and you open your eyes feeling groggy and disoriented.Times when you accept defeat and stop moving towards what you want to achieve in life. These are just indicators of being low on motivation and lacking will power to chnage things. It’s more psychological than physical. Follow these simple tips, to come out of your cocoon and boost your willpower.

Try these four ways to up your willpower.

1) Meditate - Meditation is the key to unleashing your powers, especially willpower. Practicing mindfulness, even for few minutes a day can help in boosting your willpower.

2) Exercise - The magic pill of exercise is another best way to boost your willpower. It is recommended that you exercise for 30 minutes, at least three times a week to ensure that you feel fitter, reduce your anxiety levels and boost your overall willpower to achieve bigger and better things in life.

3) Hold yourself accountable - That’s one of the best ways to boost your willpower. If you hold yourself accountable in your own life, if you know that those reasons of not getting out of the bed are mere excuses, then you would certainly increase your willpower.

4) Set Goals - One of the reasons why people experience a faltering in their will power is the fact that they don’t set their goals. Setting definitive targets is a must.You must ensure that the goal is set with measurable quantities, is specific, attainable, relevant and timely. All of this will certainly help you in enhancing your willpower.

Due to tiredness sometimes my friend scolds his son unnecessary, then he feel guilty, what to do?

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Masters in psychology counselling
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Dear, present lifestyle stress at work and stress on driving back to home on roads creates tiredness by reaching home, during the process we miss that children are waiting at home to share their happiness may be they passed in first class, or scored good marks that you have helped last night by teaching. At the same time they will come with fees not paid due to that they were punished inthe school, what I can suggest just spend two miniutes with children at the door and receive them thair anxity and just hug them and say I will be back after shower so that they will be cool and happy to wait for you till you fresh up, please try this technic and give feed back.

The right way is to not bother about people, not chase them and run after them. Real people with real intentions will recognize your worth and stay with you and its them you need to cherish. Consult a psychologist to get counseling about how to proceed and go about in relationships and key to maintain it. Also, learn about faulty patterns if any which is occurring and causing you to lose people. You can consult me for same.

VERY STRONGLY RECOMMEND TAKING YOUR FIANCEE INTO CONFIDENCE AND TELLING HER ABOUT THIS PASSING PHASE IN YOUR LIFE. I CAN ASSURE YOU, IF YOU GET A CARING AND UNDERSTANDING PARTNER, SHE CAN PULL YOU OUT VERY FAST. FASTER THAN MEDICINES... TOMORROW, SHE CAN NOT BLAME YOU FOR HIDING YOUR CONDITION BEFORE ENGAGEMENT. BELIEVE IN YOUR FATE- WHATEVER HAS TO HAPPEN, WILL HAPPEN. SHE MAY TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT. AT LEAST GIVE HER THE CHOICE. REMEMBER, THIS COULD BE YOUR CASE WHERE SHE WAS HAVING DEPRESSION AND HID THE FACTS FROM YOU BEFORE ENGAGEMENT! SO, PLEASE KEEP YOUR CONSCIENCE FREE OF GUILT THAT YOU TOLD EXACT CONDITION BEFORE ENGAGEMENT. GET BACK TO ME ONLINE FOR PRIVATE CONSULTATION.

He is in a serious relationship with a girl for 3 years He often complaints that his gf is least interested in getting physical whereas he is always making an initiative. Though they get physical he is not happy. Could you guide him as to how to deal with this .Thanks

Girls give sex for love. Ask him not to force upon the girl. Let him shower love and affection to her, rest will happen naturally and in the way he would like. Even then if the girl is not reciprocating, she can be taken to a psychiatrist to find out if she has hypoactive sexual desire disorder or sexual aversion disorder.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out. Consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. A transvestite is a person who likes to wear the clothes of the opposite sex. Your problem is called transvestcism. There is nothing to be worried of. This is another impulse disorder and can be treated with the help oc counseling and cognitive behavior therapy (cbt). Take care.

There is n point in attaching yourself to the results until they come. You are living too much in the future. Secondly, whatever has happened has happened: your worrying is not going to change anything but it can only disturb your present and future. Learn to detach from these results and throw yourself into some healthy living: eat well, sleep well and exercise well.

Sir I have a lots of craving for alcohol in the evening I have given up drinking for around 15 days but still am craving for alcohol. What should I do to totally give up wine.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Craving for wine will continue for many months or years. It will not go away in 15 days. Please continue to fight it out with continuous motivation, find out who and what will help you to distract you from wine. Also find out who and what situation will increase your craving. Tackle them one by one in different ways. Assess yourself how much you succeed in your plan - always a % not total. Work on a daily basis for 12 weeks. Later you can make it on weekly basis for 1 year. Worse comes to worse, you can demand a doctor for anticraving drugs like Acamprosate, Baclofen and Naltrexone for 9-12 months daily. Dose will be decided by the doctor after assessing you.

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. Take care.
