Hye. Thankyou for the query. Instead of getting depressed try talking it out with her and get clarity on the situation. It's always better to be clear with your feelings rather than letting your emotions and feelings pent up.

I lost somebody close to lost last year and since depressed I don't knw wat can I do.

I lost somebody close to lost last year and since depressed I don't knw wat can I do.
Hi, Losing someone close to us is one of the biggest stresses in life, it changes our life in many ways and affects us on many levels. I do not know how close this person was to you and under what circumstances you lost him/her and in what ways your life has changed after his/her passing. Yet the truth of life is that no matter how great our loss, we still have to go on and live our life on a daily basis, somehow we have to find meaning in our life once again to go on living. There are a number of things you can do such as:- - Think of the things that were important to this person, how he/she would have liked to see you doing in life had they been around and then try to do those things. - Honour their memory by doing something that was close to their heart maybe donate or volunteer somewhere; write a diary or journal where in you note down your precious memories with them. - allow yourself to feel the pain, sadness, anger, helplessness, shock etc as these are normal feelings that emerge when we lose someone close to us. Do no try to shut them down. At the same time do not let them overwhelm you, acknowledge them and then also try to do what needs to be done on a daily basis so as to move forward in life. - Speak to your family, friends and near and dear ones, talk about your feelings, ask for help if you need it, go out with them and do some of the things that would have made you and your loved one happy. - allow yourself the time to heal, give yourself permission to take time off when you are feeling down. -Very often we feel disconnected from the rest of the world, it feels as if the rest of the world is going on when our life has come to a standstill. Try to connect with people who may be going through a similar situation or read pages online/on facebook such as The Grief Toolbox etc. They help us to feel normal and give us strength to go on. You could also read a book such as Healing after Loss. - Last but not the least, please pay attention to self care - have proper meals, get good rest and exercise, go for walks, they help us to refresh ourselves too. - If you are experiencing very severe symptoms, then do not hesitate to see a psychiatrist for some medication that may help you to relax and lift your mood too. Hope this helps.

Dear Kuldeep, The key to resolution of grief is ventilation, that is share your burden with somebody trusted such as a friend, relative, doctor or therapist. The other thing to remember is rather than reducing your interaction with others, you need to increase it and meet people. Give more time for your hobbies. Do not neglect food and water. Take eight hours of sleep but then get out of the bed and dont keep lying down. DO this for a few days and you will feel better. If problems persist, the option of medicines is always available.

Hello everyone . I am a student. I am suffering from over thinking. I think all the time. When I study or read news paper for sometime reading goes well but after a while I lose in thinking and I don't know about it that I am thinking something. This has been happening with me for 2-3 years. When I walk or traveling by bus, due to thinking I forget to stop where I want. When I write notes in classes same spelling on same page I write wrong because of thinking. This year I appeared in upsc examination, my preparation is good for examination, just before examination night I didn't sleep because "if I will fail then what will happen" this thinking was in mind and the whole night I didn't sleep, this is not stopped here same things happened before my GATE examination. For avoiding this over thinking I tried meditation but I didn't continued it after 20 -21 days. I am very worried about it. I am not living in present. I think always about future like" what will happen " and past" why this happened or if it is not happened then what will be happened? I want to get rid from this hell.

Hello Lybrate user...What you are suffering from are excessive ruminations and worrying thoughts about future. This is a common problem for today's youngster population like you as the competition level has increased. This decreases a person's efficiency, concentration and outcome from work or studies as in your case. Yoga you have tried but you did not continue, which I suppose was because of not being interesting. I propose to you MINDFULNESS THERAPY as the management plan. It is a very effective way to get ourselves living in the present and increases our efficiency and concentration, while decreases stress also. It will help you to live each and every moment of your life being fully aware. The other thing which you can do is that while you are studying you try to gain a place with full silence, away from all gadgets and social sites. Also try to plan your studies before you start. The plan should be such that you keep less number of hours per day in the beginning and as the days pass through you increase the reading hours. Say for example 2 hours a day for initial 1 week, than 3 hours a day the next week and so on until you reach the optimal time. The ultimate concept is not to make studying a burden by starting with long study hours from beginning, rather keep your interest moving gradually by slowly increasing the duration of study and gaining pace. I hope best for you. Take care

The problem started with throat infection and pressure in head. The pressure starts from neck and with in a few hours it covers entire head. I feel uncomfortable and can't concentrate on work properly. Throat infection gone but I still feel head pressure till date. I live in Mumbai. I contacted doctors he suggested renal and lipid profile test. Cholesterol is slightly high. Triglyceride - 244.70 < 200 mg/dl gpo-pap Vldl - 48.94 (5-35) mg/dl calculated. Renal profile is ok. Near vision is slightly low but as per ophthalmologist spectacles not required. I am 40 year male & work in IT sector before computer 10-12 hours per day. My physician suggested to change your routine and take high fibre food to control cholesterol, But I still not comfortable due to head pressure. It is not like starting days but not completely vanished. I took wikoryl tab for 7 days and betadine gargle. Any expert opinion would be appreciated. Thank you.

Your headache seems to be related to stress. You should include a healthy fibre rich diet, plenty of water, adequate rest and some leisure activities in your schedule. One most important thing that you need is fresh air, exercise, or at least breathing exercises. If you can start doing this, there is a very high probability that you will be relieved of your headache. In addition, consult a psychologist to help you resolve any emotional or psychological reasons that maybe bothering you. Lifestyle changes are a must.

If we want to experience peace and happiness, then we must learn how to trust. we all have reasons not to trust. What I mean by this is that we've all felt hurt, disappointed, rejected, scared, and abandoned. We have all suffered in some way (actually, we have all suffered in very similar ways), and we have all felt pain in relationships.You have to realize that trust is not about finding the perfect, trustworthy person; it's about signing up to work through hurt when it arises.Learning to be vulnerable after deep pain can feel impossible. But it doesn’t have to be. If you consciously choose to stay open and trusting, you will find that your world changes for the better in ways you may never have imagined. AS you can see it is all your mindset and not a disease to treat with medicines

What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. When you are greaving, your mind is continuously engaged in sad and disturbing thoughts and feeling of loss and perhaps guilt. When sadness over powers you it is difficult to feel any other feelings. Even feeling happy makes you feel guilty and uneasy. Slow but effective way to over cone sadness is to engage yourself in some neutral activities such as cleaning. Walking or readjng a light book. Once you try that for few days you may be ready for following things. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities feel free contact me and we could work together for few weeks to months to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Dear lybrate user, you need counselling along with your medicines for depression. The counselling process will help you to understand and get rid of the root cause of your depression. Antidepressants may affect your sexual desire, and erection. Once, your negative thoughts reduce, you will need lesser medicines and your body will start functioning normally. Then you will have normal sexual desire and you will not have problems with erection. Consult a counsellor at the earliest. Take care.

Hi the normal sleep requirement is 6 to 8 hrs preferably a continuous one. This may vary according to individual. Any thing less or more can be harmful. Always the bets way of studying is sitting irrespective of whether its on the floor or the chair. Only thing you need is a platform which can support you in holding the book at a height and distance which does not give too much of strain to your backbone.

For the last 2 years I am using depression related medication. How long I have to continue ? Is there any side effect...
All psychotropic drugs have side effects. I suspect that you are one of many who have been taking medicines but not working with a counselor in tandem. You need both counseling and medical intervention. The combination is ideal for the cure to be complete. In fact counseling will need to go on for a long time to develop skills and techniques to cope with everyday challenges of your life. If you remain episode-free for three years at least, you can be weaned off of the medication. So I assume that for all of these many years you have been letting the medicine do all the work on your depression and very little effort from your side. This will not do at all. So please start counseling immediately. In the meantime please do the following that can be done all by yourself as you desire: You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, 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 things, 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. If you are young and you can do it with some commitment. The doctor and counselor are there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with them is very critical for your success.

Basically you should develop interest in yourself to improve and shine in Life. You have to be self luminous, that is genious, no exernal force is necessary for this. However guidance is necessary. Prioritize/ concentrate on important thing -studies/ play/food/ sleep/ sociaizing. Then your mental and Physical helth is maintained and will support you to remember bettter, Nothing else is required, Remeber even a rank student is not sure if he passes or fails the exams. So you be thorough. Spend time with family discuss with your teachers and parents and friends and share your knowlege to improve subjects, Write always points in a log book and read repeatedly everyday everthing say PCBMHE E K etc. Or professional course. Be thorough. Start from day one. If not also dont panic. Concentrate and jot down what your teachers teach so that you will concentrate on every sentence the teacher speaks till the end and it will have many references. You be quick. Dont think Negative. You can try Brahmi capsule or syrup from Himalaya drug co.

DNB PSYCHIATRY, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Schizophrenia is a disorder where person hears voices which are not audible to others or believes in things which are not true. They may also show aggression without reason. This sometimes leads to risk or harming self or others and should definitely be treated at the earliest possible. It can be controlled well with medicines and counselling.

I want to become a civil servant, so I left my career and joined a light job to finance myself. Initially I was good in preparation but these days am unable to do so. Due to that shift job im unable to coupe up with sleep and lacking a mindset for preparation which is also making me depress. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Sleep is very important to concentration and short term memory. Are you exercising? A good work out every day will help you sleep well. Shift timings can mess up your circadian cycles to badly impact sleep. Check back and see what has disturbed your preparations recently. Go back to the conditions that suited you earlier. Do group study or attend some tutorials, especially if the exams are approaching shortly. You have been responsible in your plans, so I believe that you can reorganize yourself to sort out this problem.

This person is having a small ngo which is not running in a good position and he is trying his level best for its improvement. But he is careless about the relationship. 7. When from the woman side her relatives asked about there relationship, he said 90% was done all by the woman and he is responsible only 10%. But as he loves her child very much, so he doesn't want to cut the relationship. He blames the woman for everything in front her relative. 8. When that woman asked the man what did he said, are everything true, he became ashamed and speechless. She did not informed anybody about there secret marriage. And from that day that man became totally silent. But he is trying his level best for the improvement of his organization. 9. One or two friends he was having with whom previously he talk about the relationship, but now he totally stop talking on this topic. 10. He do not respond to phone calls, and remain silent. 11. He is too much involved with the child of that woman. 12. Now when that woman get frustrated with the relationship and ask him that she wants to cut the relationship, from all the side he begin to cry, or do something miserable. 13. He doesn't want to cut the total relationship and he doesn't want to grant the relationship also. 14. When the woman plea let me know clearly what do you want so that I can set my mind and live my life, he doesn't says anything just silent and acts as if the woman is not keeping her promise which they took while they married secretly. 15. Whenever he gets stressed this man go out of his home open. Three times he had done this before and after one or two days he returned home again. Without saying anybody anything. Last time police was informed. 16. He was in treatment for 5 to 6 years of nerve problem, as his left hand shakes slightly. But now his hand shakes more frequently. Before one year for this problem he went to the psychiatrist and the doctor said he is having no nerve problem, he is suffering from heavy depression. And he needs proper treatment. But after three times he stopped going to the doctor, now sometime he take the medicine of depression and sometimes not. 17. He always go to the doctor with that lady, but now as there the relationship is not present might be he is not ready to go to the doctor. Now please say me doctor what type of character is this man. Does he is really suffering from depression? what should the woman do? what is going to happen with this person if the woman leave him? does the man still loves that woman? or how should the woman tolerate his behaviour, one day he seems too good and within the next hour he might be treble. But he is doing his office, doing all the work of his organization. But not atall caring about the relationship, but when the woman wants to end the relationship, he behave madly. Please answer me and advice me what should the woman do? still the woman loves that man a lot. I am that unfortunate woman. And he is not ready to marry to any other woman also. He is very careless about his life also. But very particular about his organization.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Having read all your points, I feel he must come to a psychiatrist and also a psychologist. If there is no other problem both can enter marriage openly and live as husband and wife.
