My name is dodo I suffering from depression I tried some medicine please suggest me some more effective medicines.

My name is dodo I suffering from depression I tried some medicine please suggest me some more effective medicines.
More medicines will not do the trick. You need to combine medication with some therapy. If the depression is too severe, your therapy needs to be intense and for a long duration. Counseling will teach you new skills and techniques to handle the challenges in daily life. Medicine will never impart that. 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.

You have to make a timetable that is not very harsh and not very lax. You have to assign yourself tasks in a graded manner. Dont assign too many things to yourself all of a sudden. if you fail once or twice, dont catastrophise it. it happens to everybody. Try again. Remember a partial failure is also a partial success. See things in positive light. Give credit to yourself. Thinking is the first step to taking action. You have already got the step 1 right. Step 2 shall soon follow. Don't worry. It is only a matter of time. take care!

This is called phobia. Internal frustration and internal frustrated thoughts are main cause of phobia. Some cases past incidents and past bad memories are also one of the cause of phobia. Express internal frustrated thoughts to your close friends and family members. Do not think about past incidents. Stress may also cause for increase your sugar level. Better to stress management techniques. Relaxing so much of time. Eating new food items. Visiting new places, spending most of the time with friends. Joyful environment. Create your own recreation channel. Take good diet. Do not eat night time food. Beaway of sugar content food. Take precautions even tea and coffee. Walk more time. Take regular medicine for sugar. Diet control and walking is more important for sugar patents. Most of the time do not think sugar level. Feel always comfortable. Three months if you take precautions sugar level automatically. Come down. Maintain good relations with others. Be sociable. Be happy all time. Do not sit alone. Be share each and everything to others. Best of luck.

i'm currently diagnosed with adhd and believe it, but feel as though I diagnosed myself and not my psychariatrist. Just want a second opinion. I'm messy, have trouble with working memory, have motivation issues, get headaches somewhat frequently, have trouble falling asleep, feel numb/upset and lonely, and more similar things. At the same time, i'm very intelligent and often'aware' of what i'm doing wrong, but there's a disconnect to being able to change it. What can I do to help myself?

M. Phil Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Adhd is one of the most loosely used terms by psychologists and psychiatrists. It can really play havoc with one's self esteem. Even if you do have adhd, it can be overcome with a little bit of behavior therapy. Please stop labeling yourself and consult a psychologist so that you can come up with a plan that suits you.

Memory fades clinically only due to amnesia. Amnesia, for you to be tested with the help of a neurologist. Another reason for momentary memory loss or problem in semantic memory is due to anxiety and allied problems. You need to ascertain this through some memory tests. You can post a direct private question to me on this regard. I am happy to answer your query. God bless you.

Suffering from schizophrenia, bipolar-disorder, OCD etc. Will you please help? Already have been taking anti-psychotic drugs for 3 years. Thanks in advance.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are currently being treated for schizophrenia. I don?t know where you have the idea that you have OCD and Bi-polar too. Sometimes the symptoms overlap, look alike or are wrongfully diagnosed if the information you gave was not accurate. There is an important need for you to simultaneously go for talk therapy. In this therapy you will learn skills and coping mechanisms to aid with the medicine. Relying only on the medicine will not suffice. There is a lot to learn about social adaption, mental skills to train your thoughts, to use healthier neural pathways and networks that come with extended rehabilitation programs. Put yourself into a tight time schedule for the day and fill it with interesting activities. Major concerns like hygiene, sleep habits, work commitments, spiritual obligations etc. Need to be learned and imbibed to make you functional and productive.

U can always express honestly. Show respect towards her. Dont overreact. Females like good manners, respect, love without any precondition. If she does not respond then let her go. Every one has his own feelings.

Dear, people sleep extra mainly because they have nothing serious to do. Usually an adult should sleep for 6 hours daily. Those who work less sleep less and those work more sleep more. Those who are lazy and has nothing do do productively, also sleep more. This is due to habit. Changing habit takes time and effort. Put some effort. If you are unable to do it, let me know and I shall help you. Take care.

Sometimes I am not confident in doing things when someone speaks ill about me. What should I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Sometimes I am not confident in doing things when someone speaks ill about me. What should I do?
Step 1: Preparing for Your Journey The first step involves getting yourself ready for your journey to self-confidence. You need to take stock of where you are, think about where you want to go, get yourself in the right mindset for your journey, and commit yourself to starting it and staying with it. In preparing for your journey, do these five things: Look at What You've Already Achieved Think about your life so far, and list the ten best things you've achieved in an "Achievement Log. Perhaps you came top in an important test or exam, played a key role in an important team, produced the best sales figures in a period, did something that made a key difference in someone else’s life, or delivered a project that meant a lot for your business. Put these into a smartly formatted document, which you can look at often. And then spend a few minutes each week enjoying the success you’ve already had! Think About Your Strengths Next, use a technique like SWOT Analysis Add to My Personal Learning Plan to take a look at who and where you are. Looking at your Achievement Log, and reflecting on your recent life, think about what your friends would consider to be your strengths and weaknesses. From these, think about the opportunities and threats you face. Make sure that you enjoy a few minutes reflecting on your strengths! Think About What's Important to You, and Where you Want to Go Next, think about the things that are really important to you, and what you want to achieve with your life. Setting and achieving goals is a key part of this, and real confidence comes from this. Goal setting is the process you use to set yourself targets, and measure your successful hitting of those targets. See our article on goal setting Add to My Personal Learning Plan to find out how to use this important technique, or use our Life Plan Workbook to think through your own goals in detail (see the "Tip" below). Inform your goal setting with your SWOT Analysis. Set goals that exploit your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, realize your opportunities, and control the threats you face. And having set the major goals in your life, identify the first step in each. Make sure it’s a very small step, perhaps taking no more than an hour to complete! Start Managing Your Mind At this stage, you need to start managing your mind. Learn to pick up and defeat the negative self-talk which can destroy your confidence. See our article on rational positive thinking Add to My Personal Learning Plan to find out how to do this. Further useful reading includes our article on imagery Add to My Personal Learning Plan – this teaches you how to use and create strong mental images of what you'll feel and experience as you achieve your major goals – there’s something about doing this that makes even major goals seem achievable! And Then Commit Yourself to Success! The final part of preparing for the journey is to make a clear and unequivocal promise to yourself that you are absolutely committed to your journey, and that you will do all in your power to achieve it. If as you’re doing it, you find doubts starting to surface, write them down and challenge them calmly and rationally. If they dissolve under scrutiny, that’s great. However if they are based on genuine risks, make sure you set additional goals to manage these appropriately. For help with evaluating and managing the risks you face, read our Risk Analysis and Management Add to My Personal Learning Plan article. Either way, make that promise!

Psychologist,
I lost someday who is very close to me and now I feel very much depressed about that person.
Hello, I can understand your pain at losing one very important person in life. You probably had hopes of spending long time with her and had plans for the future and now nothing is going to happen. All these thoughts might be causing you sadness, disappointment and some anxiety and anger on the other hand. While it's important to be an important part of someone else's life, yet it's also important to know when to call it off if it's not working anymore. 1. At this age it is common for boys and girls to get attracted to each other and spent some time together. But equally common is breakups when one or both see that their needs are too different now and the other person will not fit the requirements any more. While this process is very heart breaking, but it is also important so that you can meet different people and see who is your kind of person and who will help you in the next phase of life ie. Job, marriage children. 2. By going through different relationships you will also understand yourself better and discover many hidden qualities and weaknesses in you. It's your growing edge to work through your weaknesses and sharpen your qualities. You will also discover your passion, dreams and hobbies and interests. 3. I suggest that you look at this breakup as a learning lesson and an opportunity to improve on any thing that was your mistake and assess your life choices again. What was meant to go will go. Let it go and you carry on with your journey. 4. Being flexible and independant in relationships is important. There will be times when you might not have any body's support or company. That is the time to learn to be your own friend and give yourself that love which you want from a close friend. This is healthy self love and very important for self confidence and high self esteem. 5. Indulge yourself with meeting new people, going places, discovering your passion, hobbies etc. Spend time alone with yourself to nurture the person within you.

It can be made lesser only and only by Speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, I'd suggest you to visit a Psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

I'm very tense for my husband because he is alcoholic from last six year . Main problem is after having 4 pegs he will not have any sense to talk and he start abusing language and after me.He had gastric bypass in 2006 after his surgery he became wild and arrogant . Plz help me out . He is diabetic also

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Your husband is complicating matters by consuming alcohol after this surgery and also being a diabetic. You must take him to his doctor and find out from him how dangerous alcohol is for his condition. It seems that he has a strong oral issue which has switched from heavy eating to heavy drinking, after the surgery. This may indicate some issue stemming from his early childhood ? normally some deep pain that he is smothering by intoxication. He will need to be hospitalized to detoxify him and then for some extensive addiction counseling to resolve this for good. You could then both go for AA meetings and Al-anon support groups: the former for your husband and the latter for family members of alcoholics like you. You could also contact me for the book on addictions, for a fee of Rs. 250/- only.
