Hi, I am 27 years old. I am an advocate from past 1 & half year. I live in a joint family & everyday is hell because of my grandmother. Almost daily there is fight going on one or other issues. With every passing day conditions are getting worse. My family didn't wanted me to get into litigation, they wanted me to go for a govt job. I was not able to clear any exam. I failed in 10, 12 exams for govt job including for the post of civil judge. I still can't believe that I failed so many times. When I was in 11th. I tried to commit suicide because I was not able to clear one of my exam & from that time I never gained my confidence. My family is not allowing me to go for the job in law firm where i'l get good salary. I want to live separately from my family with my mom & sister and want to adopt 2 baby girls. Since my sister is in last year of college I don't want to disturb her studies that's why I am not moving out. I motivate myself everyday but I am becoming a pessimistic person. I have low self esteem, a lot of anger inside me cause of my family & I cry a lot almost daily. Now I have lost my vision as to how shall I proceed further. I am not happy both at professional & personal level & getting depressed day by day. Sometimes I feel like I won't be able to fulfill my dreams & will end up as unsuccessful person. When I sleep my body rests but my mind doesn't I never feel that I was sleeping. I want to take some drink or something so that for sometime I forget in which environment i'm living, what all i'm going through. Please help!

You are into a depression and I don’t think the home scene is helping much. You must learn to close the past and relate to the future and present. In my opinion you are not ready to adopt and should first work on your issues. I suggest you meet with a counselor and perhaps a doctor too and deal with the depression. Do not discontinue the counseling even if you are put on medication. Your life is very precious and you should never attempt suicide at any time ever. I like that you are ambitious but you must also work at fulfilling them by reasonable means. The first thing to do is to get emotionally balanced. You have an anger-related depression and therefore if you learn how to express your anger much of the depression may reduce. 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. This is a better bet instead of adopting children. If you succeed in bring up the dog well then you may consider adopting. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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. I can understand. Balanced diet is the key. Whole grains, cereals, pulses, vegetables, egg white, fish, fruits, nuts etc do not cause obesity. Physical exercise and balanced life is another important factor. Take care.

My depression don't end what should I do my mediation daily morning eating -Venlor-xr 75 mg.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Venlor xr 75 mg only in the morning is an inadequate dose. In other words, at the doses you are taking, the medicine will not do the job that it is supposed to. Atleast 150 mg and possibly upto 300 mg will be needed. Please consult your psychiatrist for dose adjustment. Take care!

I am 43 old, I suffering from personality disorder from last 30 years. No treatment taken sofa. But I am doing transcendental meditation for 20 years. So no much problem. But in my life no friends, no relatives. I am being so reserved. Kindly advise me. Its curable. Wt is remedy.

You need to mix with people and try to help them understand you. Friendship is a two-way phenomenon. If you are ready to accept people as they are, then they too will respect you and reciprocate in the same manner. There is no instant formula as you are dealing with people and not things. Have patience. Have goodwill towards others and soon you will no be lonely. If needed go for counselling with a psychologist who can help you after listening to you and may prescribe some remedy accordingly.

Sir, I am an ex serviceman of indian army I am habitual of drinking alcohol. I need 3 to 4.5 pags daly. without drinking I can not sleep in night. I want to avoid my habit but I can not. Due to this I face so many problems. Can you suggest me how to discontinue my this habits.

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
It's a good thing that you recognize that it's a problem and are willing to ask for help. First step done. Second step is starting treatment. Alcohol dependence is a brain-disease. Due to regular intake of this chemical, certain areas in your brain change. This leads mainly to tolerance (needing more and more alcohol), withdrawal (having problems like insomnia, tremors or craving on leaviqng alcohol) and craving. To make your brain come to a normal state, you need medicines. First phase would be detoxification. Here your withdrawal symptoms will be treated. After 2-3 weeks, rehab phase will start. Here you will need therapy to reduce craving, taking care of other problems, changing your lifestyle, etc. You need to be away from alcohol for 6-12 months at least to let your brain heal. Visit a qualified psychiatrist today and start your journey towards a healthier life. All the best.

I am a 19 yr old. I am facing problem in socializing. Also I have lost ethusiasm in everything I am afraid I will spend all of my young age being depressed.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hold it, not so fast to give up on life. You are so young and have a whole life ahead of you and yet thinking so negatively. You must be seriously depressed. But do not give up hope. There are so many things to do. First, visit a counselor and discuss your problem at length. If necessary take your parents and your entire developmental history from prenatal days till today. Also it would help if you took your family history from your grandparents onwards. The counselor will help identify the origins and give you a series of things to do. If your depression is really severe, that person may suggest a doctor? s visit too. Now cooperate with both of the therapies for the best results, for a substantially long time. Do not discontinue the counseling, if you are on medication. You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, 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 scotching 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 things, 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. You are young and you can do it with some commitment.

Sir go for a complete detox of your body with the help of ayurveda's panchakarma therapy. It includes abhyangam (massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. This wud rejuvenate your body - improving your work efficiency and bettering your sleep. It will also strengthen your nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of your body - cleansing your body. Also take shirodhara which would completely take the stress out of your body and you will feel light, fresh and full of energy. Strictly avoid all junks, oily -spicy food, pickles if you r eating, drink lots of water, juices or daily have fresh fruits. Try to keep your bowel clear.

Keep yourself calm and relaxed by doing breathing or relaxation exercise. Consult with a psychologist near by you.

Well done. Don't smoke again. Nothing can physically clean. Impact of tobacco on lung function can be reduced by assessment and if needed inhalers with 3 monthly reassessment by a pulmonologist. Fresh fruit, and vegetables supply antioxidants which protect.

Then quit smoking. Nicotine acts as an appetite suppressant. Smoking is anyway bad for health and in addition to that if you do not eat well you could be causing more trouble to your health. Quit immediately.

I smoke over 40 Cigarettes per day and have been an alcoholic for almost two years now. How damaged are my lungs and liver at the present moment?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Sir, there is no way of exactly pinpointing the degree of damage without a few tests, both physical and psychological. Not only lungs an liver, but even the brain is affected by regular heavy use of cigarettes and alcohol. I recommend that if you are planning to quit, you seek help and quit in a graded manner.

Dear, reassure your self, the time you feel like smoking, chew a cadamium or a peach. If you have symtomatic problem because of not smoking, there are nicotine chewing gums available, chew them when required. If you smoke and you feel it is must reduce the number of puffs and increase the duration of puff and along with the above measures you will drastically reduce smoking and if you have the determination you will ultimately give it up.

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.
