Feeling low, having crying spells, sleep and appetite disturbances, and difficulty in concentration and attention are some of the signs of Depression. Consult a Psychiatrist for a detailed assessment. It is likely with medication and counseling the symptoms will improve. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless consult a Psychiatrist immediately.

Hello, My boyfriend has deep depression and he hurts every part of body (one moment he hurts leg and in the other moment he hurts stomach). He wants to die, also he has phobias that he has some incurable diseases. Often (at least once in day) he feels lack of ability of breathing and he feels afraid of being asphyxiated. He has no heart diseases, but feels hurt in chest too. Please tell me, probably what diagnosis can be, and how can be solved this problem?

Your boyfriend needs professions help. The symptoms he is currentlybsuffering from including self harming behavior, desire to die, pessimistic thoughts like the fear of suffering from some incurable disease etc. May be life threatening if not taken care of immediately. Get him evaluated by a Psychiatrist at the earliest, who will do detailed mental status evaluation & physical examination, & then make the diagnosis. Then will prescribe medication &/or advice counseling sessions accordingly. With treatment he will definitely come out of the present condition. Along with, encourage him to take the following measures: 1)Lead an active life & maintain a healthy lifestyle. Go for a walk, exercise regularly, do some yoga or relaxation techniques daily. 2)Do not let him spend time alone. Encourage him to spend time with friends, family members or well wishers with whom he feels comfortable & positive. Give him support & encourage him. 3)Read motivational books & quotes. 4)Spend some time daily recollecting the good moments in his life. 5)Try to evaluate things practically & rationally. 6)Avoid people who spreads negativity or demoralize him. 7)Avoid watching or reading mind disturbing things like violence, crime, horrors etc. 8)Maintain a daily routine. 9)Motivate him to pursue his hobbies or keep a pet. 10)Every day spend some time with nature & try to feel its beauty. 11)Stay away from substance of abuse like alcohol, cannabis, inhalants, drugs etc. 12)If any problem is there in his life, encourage him to put maximum effort & try to solve it. Work to enhance his problem solving skills & coping skills. If he are not able to solve any problem himself, discuss about it & try to help him or take professional help. 13)Keep reminding him the fact that people with bigger problems exist in this world. 14)Read or watch comedies & make him laugh. 15)Above all, keep reminding him that life is precious & one is gifted with this life for once only. Every moment, every day is precious & life once lost can never be regained back.

I have a problem that I read book when exam time n I forget everything when writing exam so wt I can do for good memory.

Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

All About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder!

All About Post Traumatic Stress Disorder!

PTSD is a neurological disorder which affects individuals after experiencing severe traumatic situations. The individuals find it difficult to cope with such situations and often have flashbacks of those moments of trauma. Stress, as a result of the trauma wrecks the normal nervous functioning of the individuals. PTSD can have the following symptoms:

Re experiencing:

  1. Flashbacks of the traumatic event
  2. Nightmares, which are repetitive and severely distressing
  3. Images from the traumatic event intruding during the day
  4. Reminders of the event provoking distress

Avoidance or rumination:

  1. Those suffering from PTSD avoid being reminded of the trauma, such as people, situations or circumstances associated with the event. They try to suppress memories associated with the event.
  2. Many others ruminate excessively and prevent themselves from coming to terms with it.

Hyper arousal or emotional numbing:

  1. Hyper vigilance for threat
  2. Exaggerated sterile response
  3. Irritability
  4. Difficulty concentrating
  5. Sleep problems
  6. Difficulty experiencing emotion
  7. Emotional detachment from others
  8. Giving up activities which mattered before the trauma
  9. Amnesia for salient aspects of the trauma

How to manage PTSD?

The following tips will help to come to terms with your traumatic episode and ease stress:

  1. If symptoms are mild, then observing the patient is preferred
  2. If symptoms are chronic, then trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) proves to be beneficial
  3. Alternative treatments include eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
  4. Comorbid symptoms such as depression, general anxiety and alcohol or substance abuse are secondary to PTSD. PTSD should be treated first and then the associated symptoms should be addressed.
  5. Mindfulness meditation (not a treatment option) helps in recognizing cognitive dissonances and affected thought patterns and aids in recognizing and overcoming their influence.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Sir I have a bad habit to eat (gutkha) tobacco. I want to quit it but I unable to do it. Please tell me what to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If it is Hans and gutkha products, they are both very dangerous. I am so glad that your intention is to quit this habit. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. It is a tobacco product and will therefore have addictive components to it. It may feel like you can’t stop but that it really not true. If you do not try, then it will never happen. You must try and try again until you succeed. The problem with addiction is that you have this product which is conditioned to various events in your daily life and as such it will make it difficult but not impossible. You could work with an addiction counselor to help you process the rehabilitation. It is important to first find out about the ill-effects of tobacco use to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary and true. The nicotine in tobacco stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Nicotine also reduces the erectile capacity of your penis to hamper satisfying sex. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. You need to replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the tobacco drive reduces, substantially. Both will help but I am inclined to favor the gum because it is an oral habit and it will occupy the mouth just as though you were still chewing tobacco. When you want it will be easier to give up the gum. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-users for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit consuming it. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Hi lybrate-user, Yes it is curable with the right kind of treatment. Some people get fine after a year or two some have to take for a longer period. Consider it like any other disorder- hypertension etc. So don't bother about medicines your health needs to get better. Stick to one doctor and complete full course eventually the dosage will be reduced. Apart from that for negative thoughts practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult a psychologist for therapy and need not worry. All the best.

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. Negative thoughts arise out of lack of self esteem and self confidence. This arise out of exam related tension and stress. Tension during and before examination is called performance anxiety. To overcome exam related performance anxiety, you should know yourself, your subject, exams and your study patterns. Once you study systematically and to the point, there is no need to be panic before or during the exams. “Effective learning” techniques should help you. Take care.

Sir, I am suffering from tubercular lymphadenitis. I prepare for upsc and other exams, try hard but cannot clear any exam due to fear of exam itself. As exam comes, I am afraid of it and think of giving up and trying next year. Three years passed by. Now there are three incidents I would like to share with you. 1) I had very unusual fear of contracting an std and swelling up my lymph nodes and I always make sure that I do not drink from anyone else's glass or wash hands constantly. In mid feb when I first saw my lymph node swell, I was terrified to death that same day. I thought why I swelled my lymph node which happens in hiv. Before even consulting the doctor, I started over thinking and taking hiv tests and all. The tests were negative. Still I was afraid. I started google searching day and night. One month I wasted in doing all this and then when I visited doctor, he said I need to do FNAC to see if malignancy was present. I started to panic again. My head started paining and I got panicking. I was stressed so much. Then finally after some days with some courage, I did biopsy and was diagnosed with tuberculosis. 2) I was searching for a good lipstick online. I was searching some websites for lipstick on my phone. This colour or that colour, this brand or that brand. It was so obsessed that for 3 months my whole focus was on getting good lipsticks. I felt light headed and lucid dreams about lipsticks and I had overdone it. I got anxiety and some lightheadedness in my head, like floating. Even I could not see clearly. Yesterday I checked and got spectacles but I feel bad in my head even after putting specs. I was so obsessed with lipstick that all I could see were lipsticks and compulsion in buying them. 3) Recently, we shifted to another home. The earlier home, I just loved. It was near to market and was quiet busy place. Everyone there was friendly. Here in manish nagar, everywhere we have open spaces, no people around. All day I stay alone at home. I do not go anywhere. I stay at home all the time. My parents took my vehicle and do not let me go anywhere. I miss the old home to the point that I am so stressed. I gave up on upsc also. Now I am directionless, no job, nothing to do. My parents want me to clear big exams but I feel confused which way. I feel like I am floating directionless, in my head, it feels so bad. Even neck pains and lymph nodes pain. I dunno what but I feel different. I done if it is due to tuberculosis in my brain or lymph nodes that makes my head feel so bad or just stress and anxiety. Head crown feels stiff, neck feels stiff. Doctors say that you take AKT 4 and we will see. Wait for some time. But I feel like going to my old home now. All day I keep planning and roaming here and there thinking thinking thinking.

Dear Lybarteuser, I think you must have read the advice of my eteemed Psychologist & Neurologist Colleagues, request you to understand & follow them. I will answer regarding your TB Lymphadenitis, it is a common disorder in India. Though it is TB but it is not infectious to anyone around you, so do not fear for anyones health. Lastly you are receiving treatment in form of ATT therapy, have faith & give it time, the disease is completely curable. Wishing you speedy recovery.
