You haven't mentioned why health issues you have but it seems to be stressing you out enough to impact your health. Thus stress and worry will not solve your health problems. If you want your health then you will need to do things that make you healthy. Problems are a part of everyone's lives but some people feel it more than others. This is because of the meanings and significance that they attach to these problems and their way of ruminating about it. Getting health checks done and taking medications timely is one way of taking care of your health. Another way is to exercise regularly, eat healthy food, reduce junk food and sleeping on time. Learning how to manage stress and tensions will help you remain healthy longer. A counsellor will be able to provide you with a non judgemental space where you can talk freely and openly about your problems and find workable solutions to your problems. Is some of the problems are not within your control, then learning to live with them amicably is one way out. Problems and mistakes are actually great teachers and if we have the right attitude can learn a lot and grow and develop personally and spiritually. A simple life without any complications would be very boring and unchallanging. Without experiencing sadness and disappointment how will you appreciate success, happiness and achievements? try to see life as a balance of positives and negatives and remember that bad times don't last forever. Good times will follow eventually and you will be up and about all over again. Being flexible and adaptable is a desirable trait in people who want to achieve a lot in life. These are general tips.

Being depressed can make you feel helpless. But Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day. As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression, Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning. 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression, You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again.

First of all and very urgently, seek help from a qualified- at least a phd psychologist with experience in psychological testing. Get psychological testing for correct diagnosis of illness. Once, you get the reports, your psychologist will tell you whether it is a mental illness that requires treatment by medicines or some psychological problem. In case of an illness, treatment is given by psychiatrist in the form of medicine. In case of psychological problems, treatment is given by psychologist in the form of counselling and psychotherapy. If the problem is psychological, it will never be cured by medicines. So, first step is correct diagnosis.

May be I am lacking behind emphasizing my difficulty, I am 49 yrs old.. since 1 to 2 Yrs...I was unable to concentrate on any job.. Let it be occupational, or any other, Not getting interest to continue and close the activity which ever started.. Say for ex., if I start doing some body exercises in the morning for some time 20 to 30 mts, I was starting but after two to three days or a max of a week the same activity was getting discontinued and not getting interest to continue, not only that, even on most interested activity...I found through some magazines that after checking the symptoms I am having clinical Depression, Not getting sound sleep, Having indigestion for which had some medicines for a period of one two months as a course but no result found..In-stabled mind always think to do something but due to instability of concentration unable to continue, suggested for meditation/yoga, but the same thing unable to concentrate to continue, BP and Urine/blood sugar checked and its Ok.. If I am reading some magazine/news paper article/watching TV/doing some work/chanting some thing in pooja room, if I found somebody is talking/some noise observed, immediately the mind diverts and I need to start from the beginning to follow.. consulted one of the physicians, but could not get me correct treatment... Can any doctor give me suggestion which can be more helpful to correct myself

Along with psychiatric treatment please follow it up with counselling and psychotherapy to identify the underlying cause for disinterest in daily activities. It will help you to modify some of your behaviour as you are unable to achieve your goals. Removing things which distract you can be a good starter. CBT would also help you.

What is symptoms for bipolar disorder? And what are reason behind it and how can one prevent it!

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Bipolar disorder can look very different in different people. The symptoms vary widely in their pattern, severity, and frequency. Some people are more prone to either mania or depression, while others alternate equally between the two types of episodes. Some have frequent mood disruptions, while others experience only a few over a lifetime. There are four types of mood episodes in bipolar disorder: mania, hypomania, depression, and mixed episodes. Each type of bipolar disorder mood episode has a unique set of symptoms.
