My son says he is severely depressed but refuses to see a doctor. He has been to a psychiatrist once andwas taking some medication but stopped nowhow do we get him to a specialist?

Pediatrician, Pune
More than the doctors you would be the best person to identify his cause of depression, talk to him, more as a friend than as a parent, let him do activities which he enjoys, any fruit to be born on a tree requires, patience care love and support from the gardener, children may not ask for help, but you have to be there to give him, share your experiences, if required take help of a councellor.

Chronic Depression - Tips to Help You Manage

Chronic Depression - Tips to Help You Manage

Are you suffering from extreme depression? Does your depression episode continues for a long time and makes you feel too tired to get out of bed? Chronic depression is capable of turning your life upside down, causing turmoil with all your activities, thereby, spoiling your regular life totally. At times, a person can get so drained by depression that getting out of bed seems impossible because of fatigue. It is quite difficult to deal with such situations.

Here are some important tips on how to overcome your chronic depression and get out of bed.

  1. Be depressed upright: It is likely to be driven by the voices in your head during your depression. You should respond by replying to the voices that you are depressed, but you are going to be depressed outside. This is important, as activity and depression do not go well together. You should try to stop your thinking totally and put yourself in an automatic mode. Preparing to deal with thoughts from before is beneficial. When your body is in motion, it is easier to deal with the thoughts.
  2. Try to make it to the shower: When you do not feel like leaving your bed at all, you should try making it to the shower somehow. Taking a shower makes you a bit relaxed and diverted and you can expect relief from your depressive episode. This is an effective way to get yourself up and running from bed, instead of isolating yourself under the blanket. Taking a shower might bring you some hope and encourage you to step out of bed and do something productive. Even if you decided to be in bed all day strictly, a refreshing shower is likely to change your mind.
  3. Bribe yourself: You can try bribing yourself as a reason for getting out of bed. You can remind yourself how good you will feel after having a cup of hot coffee, or how nice it would feel to listen to a certain song while going to work.

It is important to give yourself a purpose or reason to get out of bed. Many people believe that they might feel like leaving the bed in spite of being heavily depressed, if they had a worthy purpose. It is very important for you to get involved in something. You might hate a job, or hate working, but it will give you a reason to divert from your depressive thoughts. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Do severe depression patients ever get normal im 26 depressed since over one year.

Yes. The diagnosis ha to be correct. Go for psychological testing from a qualified and trained psychologist. The report will reveal whether you have psychiatric illness called depression or is it a psychological problem with depression like symptoms. If a psychiatric illness- medicines as prescribed by psychiatrist must be taken. If a psychological problem is diagnosed, medicines will never cure. Then you need psychotherapy from psychologist. Chances of getting well are very high seeing your young age.

Concentration comes from interest. If you love the subjects then concentration come immediately. Do not read for exam purpose. Read for yourself. Today morning to night everyone doing work they feel it our responsibility. They feel and love their then everything is easy. Today youth feel burden then it is difficulty to everything. Please develop love on subjects then everything remembers to you. Morning walking, yoga, meditation, puja are helpful to develop concentration. Along with your burning desire is most important. We must study otherwise we face so many difficulties in life. Like that feel all time. Write small plan of study then slowly increase in a systematic manner then you will get very good concentration. Ok best of luck.

I tend to experience problems recalling memory every time I get fever. Is this normal?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course anyone will have a problem when they are sick with fever. In fact whenever we are sick we regress into a child like state and expect everyone else around to think for you and take decisions. It is a temporary lapse and not to be taken seriously. So take heart and when you are sick it is okay to surrender and submit yourself to the care of the nurse or parent etc. until you heal or recover.

My Mother Had History Of Depression From 2002 to 2003, Know She Having It Again From October 2013 To Till Present. Please suggest?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your mother may have had an episodal depression back in 2002-3 i.e. Some event would have triggered the depression. After that she may have been fine because she had overcome the effects of that episode. The recurrence may be due to another event or something may have reminded her of that precious event to stimulate the recurrence. My other guess is that she has some vulnerability in her make-up that she succumbs to stress easily. Here comes my second concern: she may not have sought counseling at any time from the first attack, and so she has not developed skills to cope with pressure. You have not mentioned anything about medication, and how she was weaned off of it. This time make sure that mom gets some help with talk therapy, that way she can ensure that there are no relapses in the future.

I am a male of 22 yrs. I feel stress because I always think about my face. Becoz it is dull and now I am taking medicine for my dull face according to dermatologist. Treatment taking too much time. I always think that people do not like me. How should I change my mentality?

Hi lybrate-user, you have to stop caring about what people feel about you. Im sure there are people who like you even love you and are there in need of help. Do not dwell on negative and ignore the positive things in life. There are things bigger than outward beauty, the real people will like you for your inner self not brightness on your face. We all are flawed in some or the other way but if we do not accept ourselves and do self love how can we expect love from others? we need to respect ourselves to gain respect of others. You should be upset or stressed as you are already taking treatment and it will take time. If it happens good even if it doesn't you should not feel less about yourself. Concentrate on work and building up a career be surrounded with positive people and you will start counting your blessings soon.

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.

Sex is not primary thing between husband and wife. There are so many things to satisfy her. Both talk about sex. Vulgarity words can give much satisfaction. Do some positive work towards her. Better to communicate. Make friends with her. Affectionative relation is more important. Do not go direct sex. Foreplay with her. Give high preference for foreplay. Better to relax. Divert the mind other aspects in sex. Do not be excited she is your wife. You have a very good freedom in home. Sex is like a game. Practice it like a fun game. Do not think about excessive time. How much we do sex it is not important. How we satisfy it is important. Do not use any medicine. Once you take it may be addiction you cannot anything without medicine. Be relax. Be friendly with your wife. Ok all the best.

Hi From past few weeks I am suffering from stress, anxiety and irritation. My mind is thinking only negative. My tensions are converting into depression. Sometimes my heart starts panicking and head starts aching. I am unable to concentrate on my personal and professional life. Do not feel like talking to anyone. Please tell me how to get rid of these problems?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are into depression for sure. Depression and anxiety go together often. 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.

Gynecomastia can be due to many reasons - drug intake, endocrinal (hormonal) problems, metabolic causes or pubertal gynecomastia. Here there is enlargement of breast due to fatty or glandular component of breast. Get serum testosterone, prolactin and thyroid profile done. Medicines can correct gynecomastia only in cases of hormonal problems otherwise they are not effective. Surgical correction of gynecomastia can be done by liposuction and sos gland incision. It's a safe and near scarless procedure. Consult a plastic surgeon for that. You can share your problems in more details along with the photographs also.

Hi Good Evening im 33 years suffering with depression panic attacks anxiety disorder for the last 4 years. Had been to many psychiatrists took many advices and medications but the problem is still the same. I have lost interest in medicine and need a better suggestion. There is no day in my life these days wherein im experiencing panic attacks rushing to hospitals checking my bp levels (obviously high levels) and ecg (normal till date) and when I see my bp levels to be high I always feel that im having hypertension, doctors convince me not to worry as it common in anxiety disorder patients, is there any doctor who can help me come out of this anxiety, depression and panic attacks. I want to Live not to die like this daily. Earliest and positive response will make me smile at least.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Earliest and positive response - you got many times when you rushed to the hospitals, "High BP is common in anxiety and ECG is fine" But it did not bring a smile in you since you are suffering from anticipatory anxiety also apart from Panic Disorder. Instead of going to many psychiatrist, if you decide to continue at least for 6 months to the same doctor without checking BP, ECG, second opinion or third opinion, you can smile and enjoy not only jokes, even life.

I have an problem of stammering I want to cure it quickly. So I want some help from you to cure my stammering problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have a problem with fear. The fear has to do with people and more so if they are people in authority. If you deal with that fear, then a lot of your stammering will stop. Talk to a counselor and sort that out. There will still be a residue affect left because of pure habit. This can be resolved by some exercises, which should begin with real earnest right away. Practice speaking aloud in a closed room, but this time, choose words for which your stammer is most. Also practice singing sentences but ending the last word as a statement that is read. Next time end with two words stated, then three words etc. The lip exercise: with tight pressure press and roll the tip of your tongue against the edge of your lips, clockwise first and then anticlockwise, as many times as you possibly can. Purse your lips into an ‘O’ and withdraw it back stretching it like when you say an ‘E’, several times a day. Drop your lower jaw and flip it left to right and right to left, as many times as you can to loosen it. Practice making a resonating sound by increasing and decreasing the volume within the same breath. Sing the vowels A, E, I, O, U stretching each vowel as much as you can. Being young it will be a lot easier to sort it out now. Being in late adolescence, this will also be your last chance to deal with this problem otherwise, it can become a permanent one.

Excessive sweating may cause for anxiousness. You are suffering from anxiety disorder. You are belong to a very good traditional family. It is better to consult psychiatrist for medicine along with medicine. You need psychological counselling and behaviour therapy. You need both psychiatrist and psychologist. Better to consult initially psychologist. He suggest some of the relaxation methods in that your problems solved it is ok. If not then consult psychiatrist for medical help. It is better to share your internal frustrated thoughts to other friends and family members. Do not sit alone. Do not think too much about past incidents and present status. Feel always comfortable. Better to practice yoga and meditation. Be happy all the time. Be feel fresh all the time. Better to control yourself and come out of this problem. If not possible yourself. Better to take the help of professionals. Be sociable and be happy all the time. Ok best of luck.
