I am 26 years old and I am suffering from depression and my mother is also. What should I do?

I am 26 years old and I am suffering from depression and my mother is also. What should I do?
Clearly there is a genetic factor to consider. Both of you must seek the help of a counselor and if that person feels you need medication too, you will need to oblige. However, counseling must continue until the treatment is complete.Relying only on the chemical intervention is grossly insufficient. By just popping in pills how do you hope to develop skills and tools to manage life?! You can follow these simple rules too: 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: find someone to love and to love you back. 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.

Some initial courage is needed, when one has to end any sort of black-mailing. Facing the ill -effect is better than continuous blackmailing, which is like slow poison. You explain it to him that you wish to end it on a happy note. If he is more keen on exploitation tell him, it will also be him and his family, who will have there pride at stake as well. Lastly life never stops, you will eventually find another way. At this time and age, one should not consider it as a fault, despite the social conditioning. Remember you have done nothing wrong, you have a right to say yes and no whenever you want and your family will be more troubled if you carry on with this forceful relationship

What is most important is a secure, loving meaningful relationship. Sex is secondary. If your good behaviour- i. E. You never took advantage - could not keep her, sex would not matter. So, concentrate on being a good person, earn respect and money, girls will be attracted to your standing.

Emotion Abuse On Children - Things You Must Know!

M.Phil in Clinical Psychology, Ph.D. Psychology

Emotion Abuse On Children - Things You Must Know!

Emotional abuse is a lesser known topic that is very important to talk about. Most individuals are oblivious to the fact that such a term even exists. This article is mainly about educating people about what emotional abuse is, how it affects children, thereby, affecting the upcoming generation altogether.

Like physical abuse, emotional abuse too is very real and harmful enough to cause enormous damage to a child’s mental health. So what exactly is emotional abuse?

Any sort of persistent, emotional neglect or emotional maltreatment can become emotional abuse to children and may cause havoc in their emotional development. The world runs at a very fast pace and parents usually are caught up in earning well for the family, raising the children properly and transforming them into respectable adults. This entire process brings about enormous stress and frustration. As such, unknowingly or knowingly, these parents end up emotionally abusing their children. No, that is not the end of it. It is not only the parents who can cause emotional abuse, but also there are numerous other factors to be considered.

So to make the explanation process easier, here are some points that explain what emotional or psychological abuse includes.

  1. Scaring or humiliating a child deliberately and regularly
  2. Isolating or ignoring a child
  3. Telling a child that he/she is worthless, inadequate or unloved
  4. Not providing the children any opportunity to express him/her by deliberately silencing them or making fun of their expression
  5. Age inappropriate or developmentally inappropriate expectations from children. For example, making a child believe that topping the class is necessary and is a shame otherwise.
  6. Overprotecting the child and hindering their exploration and learning
  7. Preventing them from participating in an absolutely normal social interaction. For example, asking girls not to mix with boys and punishing them for doing so.
  8. A child seeing or hearing utter ill-treatment of another child or person
  9. Serious bullying by other children and cyber bullying
  10. Threatening a child and calling names
  11. Making a child perform any sort of act that might be degrading
  12. Exposing a child to distressing interactions like domestic abuse or drug abuse.
  13. Not expressing positive or congratulatory feelings to the child
  14. Not showing any sort of emotional attachment or interactions with the child
  15. Causing physical abuse to the child.
  16. Trying too hard to control the child’s life and not allowing him/her to recognize their individuality.

Yes, there is no such thing as good parenting or bad parenting. However, parents need to know how much any sort of emotional abuse may affect the future development of their child.

You know, you have associated smoking with ease in defecating and relaxation. The truth is that nicotine craving builds up stress, which is then relieved by smoking. It does not have any role in relaxation. You can substitute this association with preferably normal chewing gum or if not helping, a nicotine chewing gum. Remember, you just have to give a conditioning association of any kind to your subconscious.

Hello doctor. My sister is feeling restless since 1 week. Unable to sleep. Unable to concentrate on work and even a small sound is disturbing her. She is 38 years old. Please tell me what could that be.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Good Morning ~ There are many psychiatric conditions with the symptoms you describe and I would need more information to diagnose the condition and suggest appropriate medications or investigations or both. I believe the insomnia may be the cause of her restlessness and poor concentration, however you might feel better to know that your sister is just having insomnia, for which there are many medical and psychological therapies. If the concentration problems as well as disturbed sleep is due to anxiety, counseling may be helpful, however more information is needed and a thorough evaluation will lead to a better diagnosis and appropriate recommendation.

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, consume less of fat and use olive or coconut oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises. 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 recall where there are two modes of memory recall. Fish is high in omega-3 fatty acids (including sardines and salmon) and fight artery-damaging inflammation. The same is true for walnuts. Berries, especially blueberries, are loaded with anthocyanins — potent antioxidants that protect cells, including those in the brain. Blueberries may also have the power to create new pathways for connections in the brain: These connectors tend to die off with age, but in animal studies, blueberry consumption has been shown to help restore them, says Jim Joseph, Ph.D., director of the neuroscience lab at the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging, Tufts University. Although many of the reports on the brain-boosting power of supplements like vitamins B, C, E, beta-carotene, and magnesium are promising, a supplement is only useful to people whose diets are lacking in that specific nutrient. If you want to power up your ability to concentrate, start with a meal of 100% fruit juice, a whole-grain bagel with salmon, and a cup of coffee. In addition to eating a well-balanced meal, experts also offer this advice: • Get a good night's sleep. • Stay hydrated. • Exercise to help sharpen thinking. Meditate to clear thinking and relax.

You can try natural depression control methods or else you need antidepressants .10 Natural Depression Treatments Being depressed can make you feel helpless. But Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day. As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression, Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning. 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression, You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again.

Hi my problem is that I am in a love affair from last 8 year. It was pretty good for first 2 years den afterwards she got admission in mca and got spoiled like her friends. She started speaking lies every now and then and started hiding many things. Last year I came to know that she was talking to a friend of her on regular basis that too after my instruction to not to talk to him since he was taking too much interest in her. But 1 day she forgot her phone in my car where I read that they are still in contact. On my confrontation she told me that she was only helping him due to some problem in his home. Although I couldn't find any message which anything wrong. But since then I have become very insecure because she use to take my guidance in her every decision then how come she took such a big decision without my consent and that too after my restriction to talk to him. Although she says she has never ever thought of any other person in her life. I am getting very insecure now and whenever she talks about her collegue n friends I start doubting. This insecurity is affecting me like hell and bring my morale down quite frequently. Although we love each other but we fight a lot. I am not even able to leave her as the relationship is so old and she love me a lot. But I am scared if later I came to know that she even had a fling then I wont be able to control myself. I don't know what to do as neither I am able to leave her nor accept her totally. Moreover after that incidence I am finding myself unable to trust her and thats why not able to love her or trust her completely. How can I know the truth behind this. I tried many things but dont have any proof. I beg you please help me out of this condition.

Before you realise you seem to suffer from delusion of infidelity. This can be secondary to your own depressive illness and low confidence states. If you really love her let her go free, do what she likes, see happiness in her happiness. If she also loves you, she will always think you and come back to you during times of her realxation and happiness sharing. In the state you are, visit a psychiatrist.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS

Dear lybrate-user, congratulations for stopping smoking on your own, if you r motivated to stop it then half battle is won. You will need support of nicotine replacement therapy for few days, you can try various chewing gums or lozenges available at medical stores. If you still have cravings and restlessness consult a psychiatrist for anticraving medications. Drink plenty of water and keep eating something frequently this will help decrease cravings. All the best.

Dear lybrate user it's really difficult to deal with this constant feelings of self doubt, worry, tension etc. It can really disturb your daily life style. It's good you have asked for solution because this shows that you are ready to bring change in your life style. You can do one thing that sit in a comfortable place, you may take 3 deep breaths and start praying to almighty about your situation. This may help you to relax and reflect upon your and then take pen and paper and you may try noting those thoughts and feelings as they come, without pausing. Write as much as you can and without worrying about the language or words you used. You just need to pour out your feelings. After finishing you may pray for peace. When you are in a relaxed state you may try to read that note and you may get the answers to your disturbing thoughts. Try out this and give your feedback. Take care.

I have been suffering from social anxiety and depression. N few days back I came across a book 'The mood cure by Julia Ross. It suggests different treatments for anxiety through natural supplements along with the prescribed dosage. For the symptoms and problems that m going through, the author recommends a supplement named L- tyrosine and omega 3 fish oil. As well as 5-htp. These are all amino acids. I want to try them all but I still feel a bit doubtful since these are little expensive. Please suggest me if I should try them as per the prescribed dosage?

The anxiety can interfere significantly with daily routines, occupational performance, or social life, making it difficult to complete school, interview and get a job, and have friendships and romantic relationships. Social anxiety disorder usually begins in childhood or adolescence, and children are prone to clinging behavior, tantrums, and even mutism. These need psychotherapy and counselling

You are in your forties only. You should try doing something. Some kind of work or small business. This will give you your lost self-esteem. Also try to get a counseling done. Do not unnecessarily torture yourself. Find your own happiness in whatever way.
