I have a depression and stress and some physical problem like sleep to much and don't want to eat. Other people said me why you haven't a job and you are lazy. I can't work in any type. I can't study well and can't do exercise.

When one is in a depression, he feels like he 'can't' do many things. This, of course, is not true but due to lethargy, which is different from laziness, causes a sense of inertia. Under the influence of lethargy you will not feel like doing things, getting up from the bed, working, and even the effort to put into thinking, etc. Laziness is as a good as a choice and has more to do with unwillingness. Even so, you need to fight this condition. 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.

I always think negivate talk at the time of exams specially at my result time so what can I do so I always think positive talks only.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You lack self-confidence, which can make you believe that anything you do is not good enough and will never meet your own standards. The catch in it is that you will always set some very high standards and so naturally you will never meet it to your satisfaction and therefore you can become very discouraged. I recommend that you meet with a counselor to moderate your levels of expectations or at least check it out with that person to see how close to normal it really is and, if necessary bring it to the standard level. Do a personality development course, join a gym and build your physical self-image, and build up your confidence by participating in many competitions of various kinds. Learn to accept failure, and discover your real worth and where exactly your strengths lie. The best is to set realistic targets but take baby steps to achieve little milestones and gradually progress to the best you can. Then you will know your true levels and, if you want to go beyond that, you are clear where more work and improvement has to be done and focused up on.

I have concentration problem. I can not read but I love reading. What I do and what medicine I use.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

The psychologist who told there is no medicine to cure anxiety is a quack (non-medico), trying to portray he knows everything. It s easy for you to google and find there are wonderful medicines for anxiety, but should be taken with psychiatrist advise only. Anxiety occurs due to reduced Serotonin levels/ transmission in the mind (brain), when SSRIs (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) are given, this is restored and the symtpoms resolve in 2-6 weeks. Kindly do not consult many quacks (non-medical, yappers) in this forum and in reality, who know nothing about medicine, but use prefix as doctors and behave like medical doctors advising innocent people like you wrongly.

Retirement is big change in anyone's life. One has to plan for the retirement, in the sense that, along with financial planning, one needs to think in advance how to spend time constructively after retirement. Your father might be worried about something and is appears a that he is not happy. He may not be hating you, but he is taking out his anger and frustration on you. Probably his expectations are not met and that might be putting him under stress. Please talk to your father, about what are his worries, what does he plan to do after retirement. Retirement might be giving him a sense of losing control, assure him of your support. Assure him that, now slowly, he can pass on his responsibilities to you and/or your siblings if any. Encourage him to plan his daily routine after retirement. Encourage him to take up a hobby if possible, encourage him to meet his friends, do some social service. Check with him, if he wants to do some other job from home/online, help him in exploring different possibilities. See if he is worried about his health, encourage him to go for walk/yoga. But don't treat him like a child. He needs to take care of himself. If he is neglecting his health then that is because of low self esteem and general sad feelings. Please try to talk to him about his worries and anxieties and tell him you love him and care for his wellbeing. It appears that he has been cheated earlier in life by other people and hence has developed suspicious nature. Please talk to him about this and assure him that you are his family and will not cheat him. Take care.

The international guidelines for treatment of panic disorder are ssri's - a group of antidepressants to be taken for 3-6 months as a course. Inderal and zapiz are only palliative or temporary solutions not a cure for panic disorder.

You should look at on what basis do you get rejected. If you do that then you could prepare for the next interview to avoid those pitfalls. Every rejection is supposed to be a learning lesson and the next time you should not repeat those mistakes. You need to exercise daily, sleep well and be on a good diet. These will keep you fit. You can also attend a personality development course, good conversation skills course, some elocution practice, and you could attend the toastmasters club in your city. Go out and meet people in conferences, discourses, talks, programs etc. And build up self-confidence. If you suffer from the rejection issue you should meet with a counselor and sort that out.

I usually distract whenever I do the study. I can't concentrate on study. Why? Please give solution as much as possible.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Easy distraction is due to poor attention span and poor concentration levels. You can increase that by adopting simple techniques. Divide your study topic into small related parts, study in breaks, relax after 30-45 min of study, try to recollect that you have gone through every 30 min in short and then only begin another topic. Always correlate things that you have studied. Donot study unrelated topics on same day. If you still ding difficulty in maintaining concentration and attention start medicines with my advice.

These are examples of normal fear becoming abnormal due to the neglect of fear itself. Fear is good and is extremely useful to exercise caution where necessary. Somewhere and somehow you have been denying the fear and it has over a period of time developed into phobia. It is also possible that in childhood you may have had some traumatic experience and that has led to this abnormal response to fear today. Meet with a counselor and deal with your emotions to deal with the underlying causes. In the meantime you can learn to de-condition yourself off of the phobia by frequenting these places with a therapist and gradually working out through the experience the various reactions that you will go through. Over time you will find that your phobia is unfounded and learn to develop normal responses to these situations. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the phobia with a calmer disposition. This will give you an undue advantage over the phobia to perhaps bring it into the normal realm of fear. That, you can then tackle with aplomb.
