Dear, welcome to lybrate. Yoga alone can never cure depression. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Hello sir, your son is grown up but still not independant. You are his father as parents you need to little strict and not worry about his anger. You are doing what is good for him and therefore do not be hesitant and be assertive in what you are trying to say. You should say in manner that what you said is final word. You need to have open communication with him- ask what he wants, what he desires, what is troubling him in concentrating. Make him realize how it will affect his future. I am sure you are doing that, continue to do that. Don't worry about tantrums, be strict set limits for him. If he completes his work- then he will be granted something, just an example. Make him talk to someone he listens to. You can also seek psychotherapy from a psychologist for him. But thats on later stage, first you speak to him very clearly. I do not know how he is in studies, depending on that your level of strictness should vary. Sit with him, give him time. Make a schedule for him. Have an agreement that if he scores this much percentage he will be gifted something he wants which obviously you can afford. Tell him to sign it. Don't worry. He will be better.

I am 19 years old. I have problem with my short term memory day by day its increasing. What should i do?

DM - Neurology

I think you mean that you have a problem with your short-term memory (stm), that you are forgetting things, and you feel this is worsening day by day. At this point, this is a perception, and self-observed conclusions on our cognitive functions ('brain functions') are notoriously unreliable; anxiety, low self-esteem and other psychological factors contribute to this low reliability. Still, since this is a worry, it needs objective assessment: a neurologist, or a psychologist should perform a formal test, such as a mini-mental status exam (mmse) to confirm or rule out your suspicion. Any discussion on the reasons and about possible treatments and outcomes would only be meaningful after that assessment is completed.

Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms. Consult a psychiatrist and get remedy. All the best.

The caffeine in chocolate, coffee, and tea are actually stimulants to which you can get addicted. If you stop taking caffeine abruptly, you may have symptoms for a day or more, especially if you consume two or more cups of coffee a day. Symptoms of withdrawal from caffeine include: headache, fatigue, anxiety, irritability, depressed mood, and difficulty concentrating. Caffeine does not cause anxiety but the withdrawal can.

Hi Nik, Nothing comes with guarantee in life. There are always risks and chances we have to take. We have to be convinced on the choices we make in our life. When you started with relation you must have seen something worth to take that step. Insecurities are a part of every relation but if you cant convince yourself that she will be be worth it or if she is serious for you let it go. Because otherwise you are in a prison from where there is no escape. You will continuously be in insecurities and they will harm you and your relation. You can ask her upfront what she wants, how she sees the relationship and since you know her the best make a decision about being together or not. sometimes our insecurities are baseless and we should consciously make an effort to overcome it by thinking about worthwhile things, being busy, make your career. always remember, the right people will stay while be thankful for the wrong people leaving your life. You can help her to the limit possible for you, you don;t have to go out of the way. This way you will help also and may not regret majorly if anything goes wrong. Have faith for once let go off the insecurities and see. Whatever happens happens for good.

Dear friend you are suffering from inferiority complex and depressive thoughts. It is common in your age. Everyone feel that I have only problems others are not. But others also have same type of thinking. So it is common psychological feelings. Feel always confident praising others it will not give any benefit to us, do and feel always your positive points. Friends love your specific qualities better to develop your specific qualities everyone comes to you and praise your importance. Do not waste your time for thinking about others. Think about yourself. Take further steps to develop your self. Feel and enjoy the every movement of life. Best of luck.

Dear, at this age, mind always asks questions because it is in a immature period. People become mature when they learn. There are questions which have answers and there are some questions which do not have answers. For those questions without answer, we should rely on logic or science. Your question is such. Talk to elders and you will get answer. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

You must take her to a counselor immediately. She has to talk about her feelings and have a plan of action to become fully functional and responsible. She is probably sad and angry, but if she does not deal with them soon, she can become quite dysfunctional. If she is not listening to anyone, then she has to be taken to a professional and s/he will help her. Make her follow a tight routine every day. It must include exercise, sleep, and a proper diet. She must go to work regularly and do a lot of interesting things daily.

Dear madam, as you said, you have your own emotions and he is behaving like a dumb. May be he might have got married to use your money also to enjoy with his girlfriend without knowing anyone around him. He will not let you to leave the home, coz he needs your money. I guess that he is not getting satisfaction out of your relationship. First of all, ask him what bothers him not to have a peaceful life with you? is that the money or the extramarital relationship? if he decides for sure that he doesn't want to lead life with u, stop giving him money or your salary. Tell him that you want the money for your safety as he decided to leave. Tell his parents that he is in contact with another lady so that he is not having proper personal life with u, it is important because he may think of situations to transfer his mistakes on you. Tell your brother and mother that this what the situation is going on. Do not stay with him! coz without his knowledge or by any situational chance if you get pregnant, do you think that he will take care of you? if you say yes, then will try to give him a chance to learn from his mistakes. But if your mind says that he will never regret for his mistakes, then it is the time for your call. Coz you have ask questions in your mind that does he prepare his mind for the child in future? does he spend time and money for the upbringing of your child? so you need to walk away from that place dear. If your family members forces you to get married to the next person, then think of it! meanwhile focus on your job and earn some money for your future safety. Learn from this mistake that do never give your personal valuable things like passbook and jewels to anyone whom you r going to live with unless you have full faith in him.
