Indecisiveness signifies significant underlying anxiety. So please tell me, do you feel worried all the time about about multiple issues ranging from day to day small problems to slightly bigger ones also? how is your sleep? in addition loss of self confidence also signifies anxiety. Now the solution to anxiety problems is a proper course of medicines & certain lifestyle changes ranging from as simple things as meditation & daily 30 minutes jogging to more complex things as structured diary writing, thought recording etc. But for all these to happen, you first need to describe your symptoms in detail so that I can give you proper help & a fast relief. Good luck!

I'm 17 year male and I have recently loved a girl and her age is 20. She is so close with me but 4 months back I proposed her. She rejected and said I hate you. But she really loves me until I proposed her. She had put my number in black list. I'm unable to forget her and I remember her always. So I have lost the wisdom to think and take right descions. I have forgotten my goal also in worry of her. Please help me to retrieve my attitude back sir. Some times I thought to have drink. To know what inside my feelings and my heart. I have heard that when someone drinks the I tell what's inside their heart and hidden feelings. Please help me to retrieve back my original attitude. If there are any surgeries that destroy all memories since 5 months. Thanks in advance.

Hi, I understand your situation. Right now it may be looking a big disaster for you but 1 year down the line these things will not matter. You are young a lot of girls are yet to enter your life and you will form meaningful relation with someone who will reciprocate your love. There is no surgery and you do not need any surgery you just need to let go of people who do not value your presence. Ending a relationship is hard, whether it was your decision or the other person’s decision. You may be dealing with painful emotions and want to deal with those feelings as quickly as possible. There are several ways that you can work through your painful emotions and start to move on, such as writing about your feelings, allowing yourself to grieve, and being cautious about rebound relationships. Keep in mind that getting over a breakup takes time and patience. If things don’t seem to get better with time, remember that you can always turn to friends, family, or even a mental health professional for support. Keep your distance. Even if you and your ex have decided to stay friends, break away completely from each other right after the breakup. This means not seeing each other, not being around his/her family members, no phone calls, no e-mails, no text messages, no Facebook, and no IMs. You don’t have to have stop talking forever, but you do need to cut all communication for as long as it takes to get completely over your ex. If she tries to convince you to see her, ask yourself honestly what the point would be. If you're reliving the past by seeing her, it's not hard to get caught up in the moment and it will be harder to let go again. You may have to have some contact in order to deal with the practical aspects of things like moving out, signing papers, etc. But try to limit this to what's absolutely necessary, and then keep such calls/meetings short and civil. Organize your space. A breakup can signify a new beginning. Therefore, cleaning and organizing your personal space will leave you feeling refreshed and prepared for the new things to come. A mess can be overwhelming and depressing, and will just add to your stress level. Keeping busy with tidying your space doesn't require a lot of brain power, but it does require just enough focus to keep you from recycling pain. Clean your room, get some new posters, clean up the icons on your PC desktop. As insignificant as cleaning up sounds, it'll make you feel better. Remove painful memory triggers. There are all kinds of things that remind you of your ex––a song, a smell, a sound, a place. Having these items around can make it harder for you to recover from a breakup. Remove all of the things that make your heart ache or your stomach turn. It can work wonders to clear your space of all these triggers. If you have a keepsake, such as a watch or piece of jewelry that was given to you by your ex, there's nothing wrong with keeping it. But for the time being, try putting it away until you have gotten over the relationship. Get out and do things. After a relationship ends, it is okay to have some time to yourself at home. Just make sure that you get back out in the world aft you have processed your feelings. Make plans, go out with your friends, and have fun! It might seem awkward at first, but it will get easier and it will help you to feel better. Getting out and doing things is also important because you need to grow and maintain your social network after a breakup. Doing so will help you to move on with your life. Don't feel like you need to go out with other people all of the time. Take yourself out to do things and enjoy the freedom to do what you want. Go to your favorite coffee shop, go shopping, or take yourself on a mini-vacation. Continue to take care of yourself. It is common for people to put less effort into self-care after a breakup, but doing so will not help you to feel better. Make sure that you are seeing to your basic needs for mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. If you were not taking good care of yourself before the relationship ended, now is a good time to start. Make sure that you are eating well, sleeping enough, making time for relaxation, and getting regular exercise to feel your best. Eat a balanced diet that includes plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. Avoid junk food, excess sugar, and excess fat. Get between 7-8 hours of sleep per night. Keep in mind that some people may be okay with less than 7 hours per night or require more than 8 hours of sleep per night. Exercise for 30 minutes five times a week. Go for a 30-minute walk, ride your bike around town, or hit the pool and go swimming. Relax for at least 15 minutes per day. Try meditation, deep breathing exercises, or yoga to help you relax. Most importantly, you will get over it. It will take time. Trust and have faith. Time heals. Consult me for any stress.

Dear lybrate user. I am sure that you consulted your child specialist about this. What was his advise. Delay in speech is normal upto an age of 2 and half years. Even though there is speech delay, 2 year old child should speak some words, for sure. I suggest you to have a detailed discussion with your child specialist. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Confidence is always based on your own experience and perceptions. Feeling tension and stress while attending or before interview is a common phenomena. Such stress and tension is actually good for you to prepare and perform well in the interview. Do not take it negative. Still, you need to improve your self confidence by understanding you and your capabilities. I suggest online counseling and self confidence building measures. Take care.

I have been through depression since last year after my father passed away. I get angry to such an extent that I could harm someone but somehow I am able to control it and I lost my confidence and I am not able to concentrate on things.I want to go to a psychiatrist but I am not able to due to some social causes. How could I can get rid of it at home?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You may not need a psychiatrist as yet. However, you describe your plight very well. You have what is called an anger-related depression. This is how it works: if you are angry about something and you feel that it cannot or you cannot resolve it, then you will turn the feeling inwards. Anger is pure energy, it wants to and seeks to vent itself outwards. Unexpressed feelings will then turn inwards and stifle your natural energy to make you feel depleted and lead you into depression. Now it is not possible to suppress this held up feeling for long and one day (which has not yet arrived but you are clearly struggling to contain its expression) it will come in the form of an outburst and you will be completely out of control. This can have serious repercussions and sometimes cause irreparable damage. You will be so embarrassed that you will sink into further depression which will lead to chronic states with more severe outcomes that I don?t wish to name. You must talk to someone about your anger (probably related to your father?s death) ? a counselor is quite adequate. About doing it yourself, if you commit yourself then exercise is the best holistic medicine. Good vigorous workout and aerobic in nature for at least 30 minutes with make the brain produce natural antidepressants called tryptophan. If you did it continuously for 21 days, you will develop a new habit and when you keep at it for 7 more weeks it will be somewhat firmly entrenched. You still need to talk to someone.

Mental stress always creates physical problems. Therefore you need to learn to deal with your stress. Practice yoga and deep breathing regularly. Some of the yogic asanas are beneficial for women's health. Meditation and different relaxation techniques are taught in the counselling process to help the patient to release his /her stress on their own.

I lost some body close last year and since then feel very depress and prefer keeping to myself all the time.
It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Hai. I use to smoke for 8 years. I smoke nearly 8 to 10 cigarettes per day. Now I am in mode to quit smoking, but I am replacing with e-cigarette nicotine level 16mg. I would like know is e-cigarette also harmful like normal cigarette?

M.D.(HOMOEOPATHY), C.S.D.(MUMBAI), BHMS
Homeopath, Bareilly
While e-cigarettes are often promoted as safer alternatives to traditional cigarettes, which deliver nicotine by burning tobacco, little is actually known yet about the health risks of using these devices. How do e-cigarettes work? most e-cigarettes consist of three different components, including: a cartridge, which holds a liquid solution containing varying amounts of nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals a heating device (vaporizer) a power source (usually a battery) in many e-cigarettes, puffing activates the battery-powered heating device, which vaporizes the liquid in the cartridge. The resulting aerosol or vapor is then inhaled (called" vaping"). Are e-cigarettes safer than conventional cigarettes? unfortunately, this question is difficult to answer because insufficient information is available on these new products. Cigarette smoking remains the leading preventable cause of sickness and mortality, responsible for over 400, 000 deaths in the united states each year. The worst health consequences associated with smoking (e. G. Cancer and heart disease) are linked to inhalation of tar and other chemicals produced by tobacco combustion; the pleasurable, reinforcing, and addictive properties of smoking are produced mostly by the nicotine contained in tobacco. E-cigarettes are designed to simulate the act of tobacco smoking by producing an appealingly flavored aerosol that looks and feels like tobacco smoke and delivers nicotine but with less of the toxic chemicals produced by burning tobacco leaves. Because they deliver nicotine without burning tobacco, e-cigarettes appear as if they may be a safer, less toxic alternative to conventional cigarettes although they do not produce tobacco smoke, e-cigarettes still contain nicotine and other potentially harmful chemicals. Nicotine is a highly addictive drug, and recent research suggests nicotine exposure may also prime the brain to become addicted to other substances. Also, testing of some e-cigarette products found the vapor to contain known carcinogens and toxic chemicals (such as formaldehyde and acetaldehyde), as well as potentially toxic metal nanoparticles from the vaporizing mechanism. The health consequences of repeated exposure to these chemicals are not yet clear. Another worry is the refillable cartridges used by some e-cigarettes. Users may expose themselves to potentially toxic levels of nicotine when refilling them. Cartridges could also be filled with substances other than nicotine, thus possibly serving as a new and potentially dangerous way to deliver other drugs.

This can be ideally worked out with a therapist who will see the need to explore your developmental history to source the origins. In the meantime, it is very prudent to understand that sex has many more dimensions than the mere act of physical copulation. There is, besides the physical aspect, the emotional, intellectual, social and even the spiritual dimension to sex. In this context we refer to it as sexuality which has to it femininity and masculinity. In fact all of us have both these aspects to our sexuality, and if a male has developed more of the femininity in him, he is likely to display effeminate traits and may even favor female companions and relations. So a good education of these different aspects and dimensions of sex and sexuality will play a significant role in helping you to determine your orientation and favor the one that is most desirable to you. A sex educationist can help you a lot to understand the male and female natures in us called Anima and Animus. If this is not the case, then your orientation may have to be revised.

This level of dependence is too much and you must learn to detach from her to this extent. You could work with a counselor to become independent and self dependent. You can also do that by assessing your capabilities in a more realistic manner and discover your ability to make and take decisions. In time, with some practice, you will be able to get it. YOu can also see what skills yoru sister uses to help you and you can do the same. It has been a long time and I am sure if you truly introspect you will be able to know the ways of your sister.

You are in deviation. Watching ponrographs only increase your disire and there is a danger of becoming obsessed with that habit leading to many other problems like loss of concentration, feeling of guilt, and even to depression. So that is not a good idea. Prostitution is very bad idea through which you will loose your future in all dimensios, since you are only 19. It is quite normal to have sexual thoughts and feelings at your age. Mind it, it is a trap which dicides whether your future is bright or dark. I mean, you are provided with tremendous physical and mental energy at this age by mother nature. If you direct this energy towards your career achievement and goals, you will get whatever you like, say name, fame, beautiful wife, power, money etc. Otherwise if you are wasting your energies in such a way you have mentioned, it is sure you loose both the present and future. Masturbation, strictly once in a week, will give you some relief without affecting your health.

Chronic Depression - Tips to Help You Manage

Psychologist, Bangalore
Chronic Depression - Tips to Help You Manage

Are you suffering from extreme depression? Does your depression episode continues for a long time and makes you feel too tired to get out of bed? Chronic depression is capable of turning your life upside down, causing turmoil with all your activities, thereby, spoiling your regular life totally. At times, a person can get so drained by depression that getting out of bed seems impossible because of fatigue. It is quite difficult to deal with such situations.

Here are some important tips on how to overcome your chronic depression and get out of bed.

  1. Be depressed upright: It is likely to be driven by the voices in your head during your depression. You should respond by replying to the voices that you are depressed, but you are going to be depressed outside. This is important, as activity and depression do not go well together. You should try to stop your thinking totally and put yourself in an automatic mode. Preparing to deal with thoughts from before is beneficial. When your body is in motion, it is easier to deal with the thoughts.
  2. Try to make it to the shower: When you do not feel like leaving your bed at all, you should try making it to the shower somehow. Taking a shower makes you a bit relaxed and diverted and you can expect relief from your depressive episode. This is an effective way to get yourself up and running from bed, instead of isolating yourself under the blanket. Taking a shower might bring you some hope and encourage you to step out of bed and do something productive. Even if you decided to be in bed all day strictly, a refreshing shower is likely to change your mind.
  3. Bribe yourself: You can try bribing yourself as a reason for getting out of bed. You can remind yourself how good you will feel after having a cup of hot coffee, or how nice it would feel to listen to a certain song while going to work.

It is important to give yourself a purpose or reason to get out of bed. Many people believe that they might feel like leaving the bed in spite of being heavily depressed, if they had a worthy purpose. It is very important for you to get involved in something. You might hate a job, or hate working, but it will give you a reason to divert from your depressive thoughts.
