I suspect that he is one of many who have been taking medicines but not working with a counselor in tandem. He needs both counseling and medical intervention. The combination is ideal for the cure to be complete. In fact counseling will need to go on for a long time to develop skills and techniques to cope with everyday challenges of his life. If he remains episode-free for three years at least, he can be weaned off of the medication. So I assume that for all of these many years he has been letting the medicine do all the work on his depression and very little effort from his side. This will not do at all. So please start him on counseling immediately. In the meantime please get him to do the following that can be done all by himself as he desires: he must be active and work towards his reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When he is depressed, he will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. He is required to literally do the opposite of what he feels like doing. Depression makes one want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make one too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, he will need to fight this disease. He 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on tv or comedies and cheer himself 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 himself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, he needs to incorporate these three important adaptations in his life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If he did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Have him pray and have faith in god to alleviate his sufferings. He should not wait for others to help. Use his own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but if he perseveres he will win this battle. The doctor and counselor are there only to facilitate him, all the hard word must come from him, and his cooperation with them is very critical for his success.

I am smoking from last 4.5 year 7-10 cigarette a day but now im try to quitting this, is lungs affected or its normal, ant suggest me how to clean my lungs also.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The lining in the throat is filled with tiny hair like structures called cilia. Cilia are tiny hair-like organelles that reside on the surface of cells. There are two types of cilia: motile and non-motile. The former continuously move in a wave-like fashion in a single direction, while the latter function as sensory organs that respond to stimulus. The most common reason to suffer damaged or paralyzed cilia, however, is smoking. Normally, healthy ones in the bronchial tubes work in sync with specialized cells that produce mucous to capture and remove impurities from the lungs. Smokers, on the other hand, are subjected to about 7,000 toxic chemicals in cigarette smoke, including arsenic, methane, and carbon monoxide. This damages the organelles, and dirt, environmental pollutants, and toxins from cigarette smoke remain in the lungs. Furthermore, these toxins migrate from the lungs via the bloodstream to other organs. In response to the presence of excess irritants, mucous cells in the lungs become stimulated to produce more mucous than they normally would. Of course, with damaged cilia, the lungs have no means of moving the mucous out. This usually results in an unproductive cough. In fact, the damage caused by smoking leaves the smoker at significantly higher risk for frequent respiratory infections, or chronic bronchitis. Continued smoking may eventually lead to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema) or lung cancer. In fact, smoking eventually destroys the cilia, which may then be displaced by an excessive number of basal cells or squamous cells. Over time, these cells may become cancerous. They may also become rogue, escaping through lung tissue and invading other parts of the body. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself.

Hello doctor! I'm 20 years old and i'm in a relationship from past 2 years with a boy. Though there had been many ups and downs in our relationship but this guy as promised never left me alone. He loves me a lot and does so much for me but he used to have a very bad cannabis addiction but it was not a big deal for me. He left everything for me . But then he again started it for a week. And then again left all that because I left him. Both our families know somewhat about us. But the guy has very bad image. Every other person comes and says bad about him that He's only using Me and about his past. I had straight away talked to him about it also but that's all ok. whenever we get intimate after that I get the feeling that He's only using me. Every little action of his like not talking on phone immediately for some reason it all makes Me feel so sad. I get very depressed as i'm not again able to trust him completely on that he will completely leave the cannabis though he has promised me. He meets me everyday and on phone call as well doesn't go to his friends for me. But still I feel very insecure. It feels that he will leave me. He is not listening to my problems and keeps on telling that he has headache after sex and all that. He lows I feel such way he tries to convince me but my mind doesn't makes up. Please help.

You are doing well by confronting him every time you hear something. This sounds like an open relationship, which is really good. When people say something about hi9m it will cause a lot of doubt and so there will be mistrust in the relationship and that is bad. Neither should you ignore what people say because not all of them will lie. Therefore, weigh the facts and cross-examine him and read between the lines of his answers. Because you are in love, you will tend to believe him readily and that is why they say that love is blind. My concern in the first place is why you were attracted to a guy who is addicted to cannabis? The answer to this question is to look inside and see if you felt a strong mothering instinct towards him. If that is the case, believe me, there will be a lot of problems in the future. He has to come clean and not abstain from the substance whenever you threaten him. Unfortunately, there is a double bind: if you leave him now he will definitely go back to marijuana; and if you stayed with him he may play games around all this and still be an addict. Your relationship should be strongly based on good and sound principles, which I feel are not fully present. So have a serious talk with him with an ultimatum that he ahs to not only give up his addiction but also make some serious changes in his life to alter his addictive personality. For this, he should go for addiction counseling and work on his susceptibility. When that counselor can give you some assurances, you can perhaps take the risk. You will need a third person's assurance to prevent the easy influence of being blind at this point. So when too many people talk about him in a bad way, then you know that there is no smoke without a fire!!! Think about all this, talk to him constructively and if he truly loves and also wants to change his personality through therapy, you can go forward always under the approval of the counselor.

Hello this is vinod age 26 I am suffering from over thinking, depression for smaller things.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

I m a smoker but now days am not smoking but I feel some weakness or stamina issue.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You do not mention your age so I will have to take a guess about these symptoms. The carbon monoxide in tobacco smoke has the effect of damaging the oxygen carrying capacity of your blood and therefore there is a problem of early exhaustion and that you cannot sustain your stamina too. The latter could be due to damage to your lungs as well. Depending on your age and the extent of your tobacco use, the effects could be of more severity. I recommend that you go for a complete medical checkup and assess the damage to your respiratory system and get advice on how you can recoup from this effect. Exercise is a must but the pace and quantity must be determined on medical grounds. It is really a good thing that you have ceased with smoking because the damage is evidently showing and you can now focus on recovering as much as you can.

You must examine if something happened 6 years ago to disturb you. You must meet with a counselor and talk about your stress. Lack of sleep is very harmful to your overall health. Instead of worrying too much about causes, why don’t you implement some of my suggestions, because they work effectively. The lack of sleep, i.e. sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Good Morning Mam, I am suffering from schizophrenia (schizo obsessive disorder), so can you suggest me diet to maintain the chemical imbalance in this disease.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user I am assuming you have been diagnosed as schizo obsessive formally by a psychiatrist and on medication for the same. Please understand that the chemical imbalance in this case occurs at the level of the neurotransmitters in the brain. Currently there is no way of testing for the concentration of these neurotransmitters neither can these be affected by diet. However you must maintain a healthy balanced diet and avoid smoking or drinking.

Death is inevitable in human life, no doubt it is painful but one has to accept this reality. There is no point in remain in grief and keeping away from others, this will make you mentally weak. Be happy and remain in good relatives, friends company. Do some yoga and meditation, visit near by religious place to get mental peace. Time is god a great healer, every thing will be alright, wait and watch with calm and cool mind.

Probably you seem to be an emotional person with a weakness for over thinking and worrying over small issues. You need a overall personality package treatment which on one side will build body and other side build strong mind. You need to see a good physician who also can provide mind-body counselling and holistic therapy. Till this is found out, take your family physician's advise for high blood pressure and fast pulse.

I'm mentally worried about certain things happening in my life. I passed out 12th on 2015 and due to some problems I dropped one year and took up coaching classes for medical entrances these year. As the exams are approaching I feel like I don't want to study MBBS as I am not going to be qualified. I want to do B. Sc Biotechnology. My parents are forcing me to make sure I get MBBS this year, because they have spend like 50k for coaching and they think it was a waste. And Because they think being a doctor is all about money and Lifetime insurance. They don't support my other choice i. E being a researcher. They constantly say me that it is a long way course and there is too much competition and I may end up being unemployed. They don't understand my ability of thinking and why I want to take biotechnology. Just because they say being Doctor is all about prestiges, money and insurance, I hate doctors and I hate thinking myself as a MBBS student too. Why would I end up taking MBBS because it makes people rich? I want to do something of my own, with my ability. Why would I run after prestige for just the tag before our names! Sometime I feel like ending up my life. I'm not even able to study for the entrances. I'm having sleep problems, sometime I sleep like never going to wake up or sometime I suffer from insomnia, my diet has been changed too. Either I eat too much or I don't eat at all and just lose appetite. I suffer from extreme headache too and not able to cry when I just want to scream and cry sometimes. Please help me through these.
