Either you were too much into that relationship and were let down rather badly or you trusted him too much that his straying in the relationship has hurt you very badly. In both instances, you are better off of having learned about it before you committed to marriage: just imagine what it would have been if you were married to him and this happened! God works in wonderful ways and you need to be thankful. The other matter you need to take into account is that not all people are reliable, dependable and can be trusted. This is not to mean that there is no one trustworthy. There are people and people, some of whom can be trusted. Also do not take everything too much to heart: there may have been some a very difficult situation that provoked this situation. What if you were in a similar situation, would you want your boyfriend to forgive you? So these are some ways to get the entire experience out of your system and move on with your current relationship by giving it your all if the trust factor is proven. Take some serious learning from your previous episode and move on. If you do not learn, you will tend to repeat it. Also, if you bring baggage into the new relationship you may either disturb it inadvertently or make your present boyfriend act in a similar manner by the power of suggestion! For your depression please do the following: 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.

I cannot concentrate in anything. There is something inside making irritable. I cannot pay attention to my study also...
Inability to concentrate and easy irritability can be signs of underlying unresolved stress and anxiety. Increase in smoking and alcohol is also suggestive of inner stress. Try to find time fir relaxation. Do exercises like yoga and meditation for relaxation. In case you still find it difficult do not hesitate to consult a psychiatrist. In case of any queries and assistance with treatment required, you may consult me online.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear from relationship could cause depression and such depression do not last long. The more you try to forget the past, the more you end up remembering it. I suggest counselling and depression therapy. Take care.

Hello sir, I have panic attacks and disorder Kindly prescribe medicine Thank you.
Hi lybrate-user, sit comfortably. Take a long, deep breath and exhale it slowly while saying the word" relax" silently. Close your eyes. Let yourself take ten natural, easy breaths. Count down with each exhale, starting with" ten. This time, while you are breathing comfortably, notice any tensions, perhaps in your jaw or forehead or stomach. Imagine those tensions loosening. When you reach" one, open your eyes again. Do this exercise for panic attack and seek psychotherapy from psychologist.

Hi I'm suffering from Schizophrenia or chemical imbalance for last 18 years I ve a baby now My psychiatrist says that there will be cure of schizophrenia or chemical imbalance within 15 years Since Schizophrenia or chemical imbalance starts after 14 years I hope my baby is safe Please give me a positive reply.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Schizophrenia is like Diabetes or Hypertension, symptoms can be controlled and the person's life made functional. So your psychiatrist comments on next 15 years cure, am not sure. You should ask him to elaborate how. When one of the parent has schizophrenia, the child has 10 to 20% risk of getting the disorder, so remaining 80% the chances are the child may not get. Bring up the child in an emotionally healthy environment, most likely the child will not get. All the best.

I'm suffering from over thinking. It may lead to my death. Please suggest me how to cure this.

DPM, MBBS

I'm suffering from over thinking. It may lead to my death. Please suggest me how to cure this.
Over thinking by itself cannot cause death. It cannot cause any physical problem in fact. Yes it may increase your stress significantly. If you are getting suicidal thoughts then it is a big cause of worry and you should take immediate action. In any case, discuss in detail about your problem with a psychiatrist or a psychologist. Over thinking can happen due to several reasons. You need a diagnosis first.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear , I can understand. You are just 25 and I just don' t see any impending problem to your memory. Please introspect. If you can recall the story of a popular movie you last seen, or if you can remember the names of your favorite friends, or if you can remember what you ate for yesterday' s break fast and dinner, possibly you do not have any memory problems. If you feel memory problems in your education, then the problem lies in your interest to the subject and the way you study. If you get bored while studying, naturally, you understand nothing, thereby no recollection. After going through the above two paragraphs, you please introspect, and come back if you still want to clarify something. Take care.
