Dear lybrate-user. Thanks for the question. I can understand. Please do not panic. Possessiveness and doubting nature is common. If you start worrying about it, it may worsen and could become Obsessive compulsive disorder or obsessive compulsive personality. Do not worry about it and if you come and meet me personally, I could help you with it for a complete cure. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, that's nice to hear that your wife is very generous, ask her not keep any expectation from others and help her to be affirmative and ask her to learn to say" no" to people. It's good to come in help for people but not at the cost of her health.

Dear, please understand, depressive disorder is a neuro chemical disorder. Therefore even allopathic medicines don't properly work. The best combination treatment is allopathic medicines and psychotherapy. Please follow the prescribed methods strictly. I assure you, you will not get any further relief from any alternative medicine systems. Please don't waste your time and money. Take care.

When you take any medicine it leads to some other problems. Better to control yourself. Your loneliness is the main enemy it caused depressive thoughts. Do not think about suicidal aspects. If you think like that your thoughts may also come like that. If anything happen better to express others. Whether it is good or bad. Better to share with others. Better to maintain close relations with friends and family members. Do not be alone. Do not sit one place. Visit other places. Better to develop busy work schedules. Concentrate on your work. Plan about good career. Better to imagine good future. Feel always happy and be friendly with others. Be sociable and feel always comfortable. Think always positive matters. Feel always be a good person.

Depression Blues - Tips To Prevent It In Adults!

M.D Psychiatry , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Depression Blues - Tips To Prevent It In Adults!

Depression in adults is a lot different from depression in younger people. Adults have the overburdening thrust to believe they should be able to deal with any situation however adverse of their own accord. This pushes them to such a point that they bottle up worries and anxieties making themselves vulnerable to depression. Reaching out for help is almost a wager; lost before a fair trial. An elderly person could remain depressed due to varied reasons but the cause is seldom remorse. Assuming the cause as sadness could depress your loved ones even more. 
 
Take a look at the following factors that can depress older adults;

  1. Serious ailments like strokes, cancer, diabetes, thyroid and so on so forth.
  2. The loss of a dear friend or a family member.
  3. Excessive work pressure.
  4. Stagnation in personal life, passions and goals. 
  5. Lack of motivation to do the slightest of things. 

To prevent depression in adults the following ways should be kept in mind:-

  1. Interaction is the key principle- Adults might need to talk. Being a grown- up doesn't mean you don't need suggestions and advice of your friends and relatives. Try to interact with a person who you think is depressed.    
  2. Try to identify medical conditions and look for reliable treatment- Medical illnesses like cancer or diabetes can take a toll on your mental strength. It can discourage you from living life with full vigor and energy. Thus medical conditions should be treated with due care and a person suffering should be encouraged to take professional psychological consultation.  
  3. Providing a person with space is mandatory- Adults hate being domineered or patronized. When they need space they should be allowed to be alone. It could help them deal with depression better. Staying alone doesn't always involve loneliness. People might need to clarify things to their own selves or might even need time to introspect.
  4. Make a depressed person take care of a pet- The presence of a pet in the household can relieve its members of accumulating stress. An adult when made to take care of a pet has added responsibilities and will naturally have less scope to wallow in their own sorrow. A pet gives a person the love and affection he or she had been lacking all along.
  5. Humor is a wonderful pill- Create opportunities to make a person laugh. Share jokes or make them watch funny shows.
  6. Ensure the person gets enough sleep- A full night's sleep is extremely important. Insufficient relaxation can push you towards depression. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

What should I do when I feel depressed at any time and how to be courage at that depressed time?

What should I do when I feel depressed at any time and how to be courage at that depressed time?
If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. 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. 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.

I have habit to eat gutka & tobacco from last 35/ 37 years. I want leave this habit. Suggest me how to quit

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, tobacco is the most addictive substance known to man. It is also carcinogenic and therefore it needs to be kept away from human consumption. Your problem is tobacco abuse and addiction. The best method to stop tobacco is to have will power and self belief. Tobacco chewing gums, lozenges and patches are available across medical shops to manage your tobacco craving. In any case the first step is to take a strong decision about quitting. You may consult a psychologist for substance abuse counseling. Take care.

My 20 year old child felt that she was not feeling normal and visited her university counsellor and was diagnosed depression last year .My child after searching the internet feels that she might have borderline personality disorder and her councillor also felt the possibility. And advices her to get it checked from a doc. Is this disorder treatable with counselling or she will need medicine. Should I take her to a psychiatrist or a counsellor. In my city most of the famous psychiatrist have a reputation of only prescribing medicine and ignoring counselling. I cannot find a CBT here who is the next best specialist to consult.

Dear lybrate-user, It is nice of you to treat your daughter properly. Borderline personality disorder predisposes your daughter for depression. Both of them can be in the same person. Your daughter is still only 20 years and her personality is still forming. Now, you have to see that her depression does not affect her studies or future. Any psychiatrist will treat her with antidepressant/mood stabilizer tablets with whatever counselling is required for the treatment of depression. Later if needed, you can send her to a clinical psychologist for therapy of borderline personality disorder. The university counselor or online counselors can also help.
