I'm suffering from anxiety, depression due to several job losses and also not able to concentrate on studies. I'm 52 years old and feeling very nervous of getting a job and retaining it. What should I do? I'm believing more in super natural powers like psychics, astrologer, gods and saints. How to get confidence and do my work without getting addicted any chemical injection or tablets. Is anything related to English medicine like Valium or other antidepressants which will make my mood stay clear of all mental stress without having side effects. (Generally I'm averse to English medicine).

hello there are two types of urges mentioned in Ayurveda 1) dharniya vega (urges, should b controlled, but you aren't) like chinta-stress, bhaya-fear, shoka-, krodha-short temper, maan- ego, lobha-greedy etc mental condition you should control yourself 2) adharniya vega (urges that should not be controlled, but you are controling) like sleep, urine, stool, hunger, thirst, yawn, sneeze, vomit etc. so it's too bad live with anxiety. life is a gift. my advises to you are * take life lightly * main problem is how you are reacting matters & incidence of your life & day to day * you can see half filled glass of water by two way: half is still empty(nagative attitude) or half full(positive) * take balance diet * give time for yoga * constipation should removed * you can take brahmi sankhpuspi etc ayurveda medicine * I recommended strongly, go near by ayurveda centre & take shirodhara & Nashya treatment all anti depressants have major side effects. use nature thing as much as possible try to find out reasons of discontinued job & by clearing this starts new job coz life has no failures:)

Hello sir Past 2-3 days I got some realistic type of dreams related to my life. I can't remember it properly but it make me dull in mentally. And I feel like very disturbed and tensed. I can't concentrate on my study due to this. I have not experienced before this type of situation, it was first time. And one more thing , At one night dreams comes 3-4 times continuously one by one. My age -22 I sleep less becoz of IES preparation. My sleeping timing - 4 am to 11 am Thanks in advance

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

You report of having dreams almost 3-4 times every night. Also you admit remembering them vividly in your short span of sleep. This itself suggests your lack of restful and relaxing sleep. A tense and anxious mind with a burden of sleep lag would eventually land up having more of rem sleep, causing dreams to be remembered. I would advise you you have 7-8 hours of restful sleep daily. For relaxation you may try deep breathing exercises, yoga or meditation too.

Hi Shakeela Yes mental Illnesses are known to run in families. An individual inherits a susceptibility to a mental illness but doesn't necessarily develop the illness ie the person may or may not develop the illness. Mental Illnesses are caused by a combination of biological factors ( ex. inherited genes from parents... ), environment & psychological factors. Exact cause is not known yet. ALL THE BEST

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Being Alone vs. Being Lonely

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Being Alone vs. Being Lonely

There are people who feel lonely but are alone and there are those who choose to be alone but are not necessarily alone, i.e. surrounded by people. So what make us feel lonely? Is it just isolation from social life or one can be lonely in the midst of all social activities? Today Psychologist Shivani Sadhoo answers some of the interesting facts and mind factors behind being alone and being lonely.

First understand, loneliness is a universal human emotion, yet it is both a complex and unique to each individual. It is commonly described as a state of solitude or being alone but in reality, loneliness is a state of mind. This state of mind causes people to feel empty, alone and unwanted. People who are lonely often crave human contact, but their state of mind makes it more difficult to form connections with other people. Loneliness as per psychological definition is not necessarily about staying & living physically alone, instead, it is the perception of being alone and isolated that matters the most.

For example, a newly joined office employee, who has difficulty in making friends and making himself/herself noticed, might feel lonely despite being surrounded by hundreds of office mates. Similarly, if a girl or a boy finds it difficult to express his/her pain, fears, feelings through verbal expressions, i.e. by talking, he/she might feel alone among a group of friends who would be all talking about themselves and would consider this person to have no trouble in life.

Loneliness has a wide range of negative effects on both physical and mental health. Some of the health risks associated with loneliness includes:

* Cardiovascular diseases and strokes

* Depression and suicide, 

* Alcoholism and smoking, 

* Progression of Alzheimer's disease

Generally, it’s very difficult to recognize if someone feels lonely and sometimes even the sufferer doesn’t recognize for the whole life that he/she was lonely deep inside.

One can cure loneliness:-

* By first identifying themselves that they suffer from loneliness.

* By realizing themselves that loneliness is a hazardous condition and they should fix it.

* If the person suffers with difficulties to express themselves to others, lacks effective communication skills, feels shy and stressed in social gathering then its advisable to take a help from experts like a mental health professional or a psychologist.

You should consult a neurologist to rule out any severe problem. If the nervousness is due to psychological factors like anxiety then consulting a psychiatrist or a psychotherapist will help.

Hello Generally these types of anxiety and depression occurs due to lack of confidence. To develops your confidence one thing always remember whatever you knows that right and say that confidently without hesitation. You don't think about others thought. You discuss those topics that you knows well. Slowly slowly you have got your confidence.

Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT) Specialist, Ahmedabad
As far as congestion in nose and throat is concerned if it happens frequently than you should consult an ent surgeon. If it is onetime and if there is no fever just take simple antihistamines decongestants with warm water gargles simultaneously avoid spicy fried chilled food and avoid smoking and tobacco chewing if you do. Take a md physician opinion for indigestion and fainting.

Hi lybrate-user! First of all shld confirm if she has any soft corner towards you. If so express your love towards her. If she accepts well and good. If not leave her and love someone who loves you. It is always better to love someone who loves you more than accepting someone who doesn't love you. You have to higher goals in life, she should actually feel jealous of you stepping higher and higher, achieving success in other aspects of life. You can outburst your emotional distress in achieving, never give up. Come up in life. Love is not in looks it is in both hearts when United leads a happy and peaceful life forever whether arranged or love marriage, if someone is ready to marry you, that means they want you as their lifelong partner sharing ups and downs of marital life only then true love survives and lasts. Try to overcome this by winning that person who is not loving you by achieving all goals in life whether marriage, career or personal life before her. Do not be weak to show her you are not challenging. Try to defeat her by achieving, becoming someone who people around you talk about you outstanding. Take care. Throw away unwanted thoughts. Keep worthy thoughts.

I am 25 years old, and I am suffering from the problem of night fall for last 4 years, I have tried many cures, but all are in vain. It occurs frequently twice or thrice a week, this is affecting my health way too much, causing weakness, anxiety IQ loss and much more. Please help me here. Thanks.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

All the weakness, anxiety and IQ loss have no connection to nightfall at all. Nightfall is the body’s natural way of excreting the buildup of semen, and when it does not it is reabsorbed. There are too many fallacies built up among young people about masturbation too. This fact should now help you to dispel these myths and live life fully and happily with authentic knowledge. If you worry about this, then you will experience all of those symptoms unnecessarily.

I am a 25 years lady got married at the age 18. From then up to now I and my husband relationship is not good, he always says your mind is not matured and you don't know how to cook so he hates me . Is my problem will be cured by counseling session. I do have many complaints with him. I can attend only on Sunday. Will I get the appointment on sunday

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I think that your husband is not being fair with you. Maturity and cooking are not connected, and even so it is not reason enough for him to hate you. Since this is becoming serious, you must seek the help of a marriage counselor soon. I suppose you are aware that, ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’! Cooking good food can quite satiate a man that he is happy and content. Now it has been 7 years since you are married and I think that that is good time to learn or improve your culinary skills. If not do attend some cookery classes or buy some books that can help you do better. If you have not tried to improve your skills, I can understand that your husband is upset though not enough to hate you. Ask your mom or neighbors or friends for their favorite dishes and serve up some mouth-watering food and see what happens. Since you mention that you have a lot of complaints about your husband, there may be other issues that are bothering him and you, and he may be using this as an excuse to blame you. There are counselors who work on Sundays too and you can avail of their services to correct the problems confronting your relationship soon.

Hello, I am married, I am fully depressing alone always nobody talk with me since from the year only my cell phone is my life. Why this life is too long? Always I felt like that I can't get any solution bcz around me r all fake people's I can't come out from them. What to do.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach

You are young and have a long life ahead of you. I would suggest to take positive steps towards your well being to lead a happy and fulfilling life. In any given situation we have two choice 1. Accept the situation as it is and feel bad about our self and do nothing to change it. 2. Accept the situation as it is and try and figure out what you could do so that you get the result you want and deserve. I would suggest you to take charge of your life. Think how would you like to feel when you are 40 years. What would make you proud of yourself. What will give you sense of contribution and accomplishment? You may try following things to help yourself come out of your current state of mind. When our mind is hooked into either past or worried about future it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive thinking and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. I would suggest few things below. If you are unable to follow these things suggested here you should consult a psychologist. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Let me. If you are not able to take charge and bring yourself up then I would recommend consulting a psychologist and work with him or her for few months and learn how to manage your stress and resolve the current issue as well. Know if you need any further help. Feel free to contact me if you think I can help you in any way, Hope this help wishing you very best.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu can do meditaion and yoga for mind control and ahve good sleep pattern and in this age you need only less sleep Resting at night plays an important role in regulating your daily health and your level of energy throughout a day. Also, not only the quantity but the quality of sleep is also important for a healthy lifestyle. Bedtime habits do play a vital role in shaping up your lifestyle and personality as a whole. Here are many lifestyle habits that can help you to get sound sleep. 1. Make regular and a fixed sleep pattern: Going to sleep and waking up the same time every day helps to maintain an equilibrium in the sleep-wake cycle called diurnal rhythm. If this balance is maintained, then your body will be accustomed to this pattern and as a result, you will feel less tired and fresh throughout the day 2. Maintain a definite dietary regulation: You should also maintain a proper diet plan and observe the consequences/effects of the foods that you are eating and the fluids that you are drinking on your sleep pattern. Taking a good and properly nutritious diet on a daily basis will help you to stay healthy and help your natural sleep-wake cycle. 3. Ensure that your room has mild or dim lighting or darkness if you prefer: The level of light also matters at the time of your sleep. You should definitely make sure that there is a very minimal level of light or darkness around you when you try to sleep. This should be done because the lesser is the light, the more comfortable you are while sleeping. Additionally, the sleep that you will get in a dark room will also be sound and undistorted as it helps keep all the sensory organs calm. 4). Do some relaxing activities before bedtime: Depending on your choice, you should follow simple techniques of relaxation in order to calm down the brain before sleep. Like mediation, Yoga or- deep breathing exercise, muscle relaxing activity, visualizing a peaceful setting/ scenario like a calm garden or beach or mountain area. These activities are just guidelines and you can do anything that helps you to get a relaxing mood and sleep. 5). Avoid daytime naps if you can , But Having short naps of less than one hour is absolutely okay if you are excessively tired during the day or you did not have a sound sleep the previous night. But, if you are consistently having long naps during the day then you are bound to have sleep issues during the night. So it is advisable to sleep early and wake up early for a healthy schedule. 6) Regular exercise: Exercising regularly helps to improve the overall quality of sleep by making you tired at night and sending you to bed more efficiently. Light to mild exercises also helps cure sleep disorders like insomnia.
