You need to destress first. Please take a break from studies for a while. Meditate, exercise etc. But avoid alcohol and comfort eating. To get results, you can study smart, not study hard. There are umpteen tips on google to study smart. Choose whatever you can do. Click on private chat if you want to take this talk further.

You are in a very dicey stage in your life and it has to do with the hormonal spurt in testosterone, the male sex hormone, which has a duration of two years. Due to this chemical alone there are three identified features that present itself over which you will have poor control: you will be sexually active, aggressive and rebellious, and you will have acne and pimple problems. Then if you have unresolved childhood issues, they will compound the situation and fuel uncontrolled behavior. Please remember that you may not be aware of all this. You are still dependent on your family which means that you are finding it hard to cut the apron strings from your family. There may be reasons for that and you should explore that with a counselor soon. This separation is something you will get used to and over time you will enjoy the independence. You should make new friends and and socialize a lot and you will get close to someone who will make up the absence of your family. Group study is one way to kill two birds at one time: deal with the loneliness and help you with your studies! If you get into all the activities of the college and hostel you will make a lot of friends and someone will become so close to you that you will then feel at home away from home!!!

Some past incident some times that's frustrated and depressed me. How to overcome in depression.

MD - Psychiatry

Some past incident some times that's frustrated and depressed me. How to overcome in depression.
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.

You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

My son is entering middle school in the fall. What advice can I give him if he finds himself on the receiving end of cyberbullying?

B.A. Psychology, M.A. Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
In the first place, advice your child not to be on any social networking site. He is too young to be there. In case you approve of him being there, be on his friends list. Ask him to avoid posting any pics/ selfies. Avoid putting in your personal information and use privacy settings properly. For a middle schooler, it is best to spend time indulging in physical sports and other hobbies, rather than being on any gadgets. Encourage him to share information about what he does during the day and his friends.

Symptoms of depression? And states how to cure it? When the symptoms are visible.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Symptoms of depression? And states how to cure it? When the symptoms are visible.
Symptoms of depression in women include: • Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" mood. • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities, including sex. • Restlessness, irritability, or excessive crying. • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness, hopelessness, pessimism. • Sleeping too much or too little, early-morning awakening. Depression in women differs from depression in men in several ways: • Depression in women may occur earlier, last longer, be more likely to reoccur, be more likely to be associated with stressful life events, and be more sensitive to seasonal changes • Women are more likely to experience guilty feelings and attempt suicide, although they actually commit suicide less often than men • Depression in women is more likely to be associated with anxiety disorders, especially panic and phobic symptoms, and eating disorders • Depressed women are less likely to abuse alcohol and other drugs • Symptoms of depression in MEN include: • Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" mood. • Feelings of hopelessness, pessimism. • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness. • Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed, including sex. • Decreased energy, fatigue, being "slowed down" If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted.

3 Proven Ways of Increasing Intimacy

MD - Psychiatry, senior resident, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
3 Proven Ways of Increasing Intimacy

Here is a list of 3 scientifically proven ways of increasing intimacy with your partner.

1. Look them in the eye and tell them all about yourself


Self-disclosure is an important part of relationships, especially during the initial phase. However, gradually as people feel that they've known enough about each other, communication seems to come to a standstill.

But the actual reason for this is not the lack of things to talk about but resistance which arises out of a feeling of vulnerability. It mostly happens in established relationships because both the partners do not wish to break past the certainty and assurance.

Therefore, the revealing part that may lead to some changes in perception is often skipped. However, not doing so and truly communicating with your partner can help you in increasing intimacy and having a deeper connection with your partner.

2. Share the laughter

Sharing the joy and the humorous experiences is a great way of increasing intimacy with your partner. Since every person's sense of humour is different, humour is a deeply personal aspect of your personality. Therefore, when you share genuine laughter with your partner that is when your sense of humour matches with each other, it improves your understanding and builds intimacy.

3. Tell them how you feel and know how they feel

It is extremely important for you to talk with your partner about how you feel - not just about the relationship, but about other important aspects of your life as well. If conflicts are dealt with by discussing how you feel about them and not on the lines of rationality, you end up feeling more intimate with your partner. Honestly discussing and exchanging your feelings is an amazing way of increasing your intimacy with your partner.

'Consult'.

My age now 28 yrs. I used to forget names whom I met. I can't remember name of actress, Even frequently forget those name I have worked for long time. From very childhood I cannot remember poetry, songs. Though I have done well in academics & well established in a private company. But suddenly from 4 to 5 years I am also finding that I can not even remember definition, scientific laws or small paragraph. Is it a disease? Can it be cured. I found though in academics I am well but in case of memory I am too weak how to manage.

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. Take care.

Your weight seems to be on the lower side. Your symptoms indicate that you will need a proper assessment with the psychiatrist and counsellor. Counselling can help you to understand yourself better and why you feel so anxious and what you can do to reduce and manage your anxiety. It also looks like that you are feeling lonely. In this case counselling can help you to build your support system besides your son who is far away. This step could reduce your anxiety further. I also suggest that you start some form of exercises like yoga, meditation and pranayam so that you can strengthen your body and mind.

You must go for some anger management work to a counselor and only if you have resolved that problem should you call her also into counseling. There is no point trying to get her back without making the change that has been hampering the relationship so far. If she is so good and has all those lovely qualities, then you have gone and messed the relationship up and hopefully not to an irreparable level. It is not enough to have no bad qualities, you must be a satisfying husband and above all, she must be respected for who she is. The first tow years of any marriage is very critical to the future of that relationship and it seems you have already sabotaged it. You will need to start all over again but you will need some professional help and you must seek it fast.

If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. 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.

Dear lybrate user if you are getting suicidal thoughts immediately consult a psychologist, it seems you need regular therapy sessions. Please reflect upon the causes of such feelings. Sometimes when our daily routine gets monotonous we do get these feelings. Its important to identify the causes so that we will work upon those reasons and remove them immediately from your life. Try to make a thought journal and when you get negative thoughts you can write in it or share with some loved one.

I do not force him at all for anything and I try my level best to provide him my full support. His mood swings frequently and at times he abuses for what I have not done. I try to be happy and all the time I am smiling at home but this feeling has started eating me now. I feel restless, I feel incomplete. In 3 years I have got nothing I mean no financial, emotional, Physical or moral support. Now I am worried about my health as I know from Outside I am strong but form inside I am broken. I need someone to understand me. Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Yes, you are right that from inside you could be ruining yourself. You have to take some action and move heaven and earth to get him out of his habit or face divorce. This may sound harsh but this is called tough love. You will be encouraging the addiction and his gradual wasting away of his life. You have to be firm with him. If you continue in this relationship without acting on it, you will be responsible for the negative outcome that is guaranteed. In fact, you are considered a co-dependent and will have some issues related to his addiction as an enabler. He needs to be admitted to an institution for at least six months and resolve his addiction. You can get his parents involved if he does not listen to you. As you admit there is nothing in this marriage for you, and if you continue to accept this lifestyle you could become depressed and may suffer a breakdown. Act fast and effectively.
