I am suffering from depression and anxiety. It makes my life hard. I don't take interest in anything. please suggest proper treatment.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I am suffering from depression and anxiety. It makes my life hard. I don't take interest in anything. please suggest ...
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. If these do not work for you can consult me on this site for medicine prescription

I have a problem of unable to remember the things in mind. And easily to forget them. Pleas suggest me to increase my memory power.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Mecobalamin has negligible role in controlling anxiety. Unless you have viatmin b12 deficiency it is hardly needed as a supplement if you have a good diet. Anyways its safe to take oral mecobalamin 1500mcg if you wish so.

There is no convection between general health, power or memory with masturbation or" hand practice" as you say it. However the irresistible urge that makes you masturbate everyday to get sleep may be a kind of psychological dependence on the act. Inorder to get rid of this you need to follow some suggestions. Find alternative ways and healthier methods of relaxation and inducing sleep like meditation or relaxation exercises before sleep. Eat healthy and light dinner with fruits atleast 1-2 hours before going to bed. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Exercise daily preferably in morning hours only. If you still feel difficult to get out of the habit you may need further treatment and counseling.

My Daughter got love marriage in March-2013 age 18 & struggling to survive with her family. We want to complete her education but the relatives are against education. We cant help & my wife is suffering from migraine attacks due the situation. What to do? Please suggest.

Your daughter do not love u people. I know to ask u to detach relation with her. Its no point to think about her and get illed. While she has no feeling. If u do not get enjoyment from a relation the relation does not exist. Do some benevolent work to get piece of mind. Love other people in society who requires ur help. Ur love is precious. Do not spoil it. Perhaps u failed to teach ur daughter the equation of respect and love. I blame u people. Time was out. U will get a fruit as u reap. Now come to main point. Ur relation has grown cancer. Ampute it. If diseas infiltrates into mind ( mind is a circuit of body) then this will be very difficult to cure. If ur skin get ill. Then the mind ca also be. As ur daiughter is very selfish. This is true only for sex enjoyment she has put priority. There is no other reason. So u have to wait uttill ur daughter gets trouble and the equation of love jumped out of window when proverty comes trough door. I can not teach an immatured the truth of life. Clever learns from surroundings and fool learns by getting blemishes. For ur wife. Give heper sulphur 200 1 dose just one dose(German medicine) and wait for 10 days. Then copy all these lines in private question and come to me. I promise u a cure of migrane etc permanently. Bye. Truth is always bitter.

Kleptomania is an impulse control disorder, but very often there is an underlying emotional disorder which triggers the problem. This requires evaluation of personality and understanding the underlying causes. The treatment is effective if the patient, relatives and therapist work as a team.

I am 24 yrs old female. I am not able to concentrate on anything. I get headache very easily. I cannot sleep. Most of the time I cry too much and sometimes I want to end my life. Am I suffering from depression or its just thyroid problem?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I am most certain it is depression and it is an anger related one too. Life is very precious and no matter how bad the situation is do not even think about suicide. If it keeps coming back to you talk to someone regularly. Any way I think you must meet with a counselor and if that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor too, you must. But your cooperation is a must with both therapies. Your concentration will definitely be affected under these circumstances. The earlier you treat this condition the better. 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.

Having Suicidal Thoughts? These Tips Might Help!

MBBS, M.D Psychiatry , Diploma in Psychological Medicine
Sexologist, Navi Mumbai
Having Suicidal Thoughts? These Tips Might Help!

Although there is no single reason why someone may have suicidal tendencies, certain things can increase the risk. An individual is more likely to have suicidal thoughts if he has a mental health condition like depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. The vulnerability also increases in cases of alcoholism, drug abuse or poor job security. It may not be possible to prevent suicidal thoughts, but keeping one's mind healthy with regular exercise, healthy eating and maintaining friendships can help one deal better with stress. 

It can be very upsetting, when someone says things which sound as if the person is considering suicide. One may not be sure what to do to help, as to whether one should take talk of suicide seriously or if intervention might make the situation worse. Taking action is always the best choice. One of the best things one can do if someone is feeling suicidal is to encourage them to talk about their feelings and to listen to what they say. One can provide the best help by listening and not being judgemental. If the person has been diagnosed with a mental health condition like depression, one can take advice from his care team. 

One should avoid offering solutions. While listening, do not give in to the temptation of providing a solution. One should ask open ended questions so that the person remains in control and expresses his feelings. On the contrary, it will offer an opportunity to talk about feelings, which may reduce the risk of acting on suicidal feelings. Ensure that the person is not left on his own, if there is immediate danger. One cannot always tell when a loved one or friend is considering suicide, so one must be on the lookout for warning signs. The warning signs could be talking about suicide, buying or stocking pills, withdrawing from social life, increase in alcohol or drugs, personality changes like severely agitated and saying goodbye to people as if seeing them for the last time. It is also important that one does not make judgements about how a person is thinking or behaving. 

After listening to their feelings, one may feel that certain aspects of their thinking and behaviour are making their problems worse. But pointing this out will not be particularly helpful to them. Reassurance, respect and support will only help someone during these difficult periods. As a final note, one must realise that talking to someone about their feelings is not long lasting and can help them feel safe and secure temporarily. A professional help can provide the long-term support to help someone overcome their suicidal tendencies. That will the person to deal with the primary issues behind someone's suicidal thoughts, besides offering advice and support. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a sexologist.

Psychiatric medicine always not good for small problems. It has some side effects. For anxiety and depressive better to take psychological counselling. You need behaviour modification therapy. Psychologist will helpful to improve your life style management. It has no side effects. Any medicine it has some side effects. It is better to control ourselves. At this age it is not good to use medicine. It is better to pratice yoga and meditation. Be share all your internal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. Do not be alone. Be spend most of the time with your friends and family members. Do not think too much about the psychological disorders. Feel always comfortable. Give positive suggestion to your mind. Be feel always in a happy movements. Visit new places. Better to walk. Take good rest. Take in time food. It is better to develop a very good busy life style.

Started smoking again? Now what !

Started smoking again? Now what !

Having a small setback doesn't mean you're a smoker again. Most people try to quit smoking several times before they kick the habit for good. Identify the triggers or trouble spots you ran into and learn from your mistakes. 


    1. You're not a failure if you slip up. It doesn't mean you can't quit for good.
    2. Don't let a slip become a mudslide. Throw out the rest of the pack. It's important to get back on the non-smoking track now.
    3. Look back at your quit log and feel good about the time you went without smoking.
    4. Find the trigger. Exactly what was it that made you smoke again? decide how you will cope with that issue the next time it comes up.
    5. Learn from your experience. What has been most helpful? what didn't work?
    6. Are you using a medicine to help you quit? call your doctor if you start smoking again. Some medicines cannot be used if you are smoking at the same time.

I smoke and I can't able to leave smoking how can I get read of it I want to leave smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It sounds like you are fed up of it. Actually this is a good state to be in around the habit. Now you are really ready to quit. But quitting is a different ball game altogether. It is not in the mere desire to quit but in the determination that you will find success. Because cigarette smoke is ingested through the respiratory system, it is the lungs which are directly affected. So you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke 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 smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and 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 smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. 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.
