My girl friend is chanting with others but not with me. When I asked" why are you do not chat with me" she replied that" I have no time to chat with you" But when I check the chanting history. I shocked. Her chanting was in hours in a romantic way with others. No pressure from side. Why she behaves like that.

She is obviously not interested in you as much as she is interested in other boys. My advice is to move on and find another who is genuinely interested in you. These are the telltale signs and she is saying so too. You will be wasting your time and energy pursuing this relationship.

I feel very depressed sometimes, I feel myself as a dead walking man with nothing to do in my life. Everybody have so many wish on me that I have to fulfill. Sometimes my mind stops working totally, I feel I am for someone because someone love me as my mother or else who want to leave this life. Is there any way to control these feelings? Day by day its engulfing my mind totally. What to do?

5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

I am asheesh Kumar ma OCD K, I bimari see Pichhe 10 sal se grast hu ma bar 2 hath dhotaa hu man me 1 vichar bar at a hai.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Jaipur
Hi, The essential feature of this disorder is recurrent obsessional thoughts or compulsive acts. Obsessional thoughts are ideas, images or impulses that enter the individual's mind again and again in a stereotyped form. They are almost invariably distressing (because they are violent or obscene, or simply because they are perceived as senseless) and the sufferer often tries, unsuccessfully, to resist them. They are, however, recognized as the individual's own thoughts, even though they are involuntary and often repugnant. Compulsive acts or rituals are stereotyped behaviours that are repeated again and again. They are not inherently enjoyable, nor do they result in the completion of inherently useful tasks. Autonomic anxiety symptoms are often present, but distressing feelings of internal or psychic tension without obvious autonomic arousal are also common. There is a close relationship between obsessional symptoms, particularly obsessional thoughts, and depression. So, you need to be treated and for that have to visit a psychiatrist otherwise its severity with time will increases.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Hello lybrate-user, I am sorry to learn about all the difficulties you are facing. Our mind and bodies have a strong connection- our mind reflects the weakness and lethargy due to some deficiencies in the body. Similarly, the body responds by the change in emotions as a result of these physical changes which are felt by the mind. You have a small baby and you should be able to care for her/him to your fullest potential, as their childhood will not return. Therefore, I hope you are able to overcome your emotional problems, soon. As for physical problems, I would strongly advise you do a full body check-up once and get following tests done- 1. Thyroid profile 2. Vit d3 3. Vit b12 4. Hba1c (glycated sugar) once when you get your test reports consult your physician as to what diet and lifestyle modifications should be made. And also take medication, if any required. Ffollow your doctor's advise, thereafter as deligently as possible. If your body will get fitter you mind will slowly begin to feel better and the quality of your thoughts and moods will improve. You will also feel more open to talking about any life problems if they are bothering you or you're not able to find a solution to. Don't worry, this is just a temporary phase. I hope my advise helps you. Good luck.

He is not care for you means your side also some mistakes are there may be. Analyse yourself maybe you are not good at sex time. You are not fresh all the time. You are not providing good food may be. You are not show your love and affection properly. Today husband demands are more now. Wife must be friendly very affectionate, she is good at sex, always wants to be fresh. Like a friends she must advise all the time. He needs motherly affection. Observe him in what aspect she likes you. You can understand based on that take further steps. You will win. You must change as per his requirements. Because he is the boss of the family. Definitely he understands to you and loves to you very much. You know very well about him. But the problem is you unable to change yourself. Better to change yourself. Generally husband priorities change from time to time. Initial days he needs sex that time he loves to you very much. Now he is giving priority for family welfare. In this time you think wise based on his mood behave accordingly. Defenetely you will win. Do not think ideally. Think like smart manner and change yourself. Ok all the best.

U seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated. Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued palpitations difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms.

I'm an 18 year old currently attending college. And I'm going through depression and anxiety. The course I'm attending was imposed on me and I find it quite hard which is the cause of me getting less marks. That's causing depression and not only does it affect me mentally, but it has started affecting my personal life, my relationships and my friendship. I get currents of sudden chill passing through my body, I'm mostly furious to the point it would compel me to self harm. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi. I am depressed and I take marijuana because relaxation. How to remove smoking from my life.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
Marijuana is a substance of abuse & should never be used to reduce stress or achieve relaxation. If some problem is there in your life which you are not able to cope with, then seek professional help. Consult a Psychiatrist who will evaluate you & make your diagnosis, & then prescribe you medicines or advise you counseling sessions accordingly. With treatment, you will definitely come out of the current situation. Marijuana is a greenish-gray mixture of the dried flowers (buds, leaves, stems and seeds of Cannabis sativa—the hemp plant. It is a substance of abuse. Frequent marijuana users have increased irritability, mood swings, sleep disturbance, decreased appetite, cravings, restlessness etc. Marijuana does not have any beneficial effects on the body & harms in various ways. So would suggest that you quit smoking marijuana at the earliest. Now-a-days de-addiction treatments are available for quitting all substances of abuse including marijuana. Such treatment includes detoxification & rehabilitation program. Talk to the psychiatrist & start your treatment at the earliest for it also. With treatment you can quit smoking marijuana .Medical detoxification is the first stage of de addiction treatment, when the addicted person is treated with medicines. The withdrawal symptoms which occur on sudden stopping of an addictive substance are managed through detox treatment. Medical detoxification systematically and safely will withdraw you from the marijuana. The next phase is the Rehabilitation program which includes counseling sessions & other behavioral therapies. These sessions have important role in the de addiction process. Counseling sessions will help to enhance your motivation skills to stay sober, build skills to resist smoking marijuana, replace marijuana-using activities with constructive and rewarding non marijuana-using activities, and improve problem-solving abilities. Behavioral therapy will work on interpersonal relationships and your ability to function effectively in the family and community. Wish you speedy recovery.

I lost somebody close last year and since feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time please help me.
It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone. You can contact me for further help, if required.

Hello sir, there is no safer unit of consuming alcohol. Alcohol is the playing a role to make people over age than real age. According to american studies 21 unit per week is less effective on male. That is tolerable for male per weak. Above it leads to liver disease. Thank you.

Weakness is a result of lack of physical or muscle strength. If you are feeling that extra effort is required to move your arms, legs, or other muscles, it could also be a result of any disease, illness and too much activity at one time and not taking the food to match the amount of physical effort you are doing. Sometimes low levels of minerals (electrolytes), such as potassium or sodium also result in body weakness. Other important reason could be the problems with your thyroid gland. Because your thyroid gland is responsible for regulating the way the body uses energy. A low thyroid level can cause fatigue, weakness, laziness, weight gain etc. And a high thyroid level can cause fatigue, weight loss, muscle weakness etc. Sometime because of stress you may feel disinterest in your routine works. Since the reasons for your weakness are not known, I shall advise the following - 1. Keep yourself hydrated. 2. Get extra rest for some days till you feel more energetic. 3. Avoid watching television for long hours. Indulge in relaxing activities. 4. Avoid stress and too much physical exertion. 5. Take a nutritious diet with more protein items in homemade food like soya, sprouts, dals, paneer, milk, seasonal fruits. 6. Do light physical activity, meditation and yoga. 7. Take one good multivitamin tablet after food for 7 days.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Fear of contamination, excess hand washing, checking, anxiety and irritability are some of the features of OCD. It is advisable to go to a psychiatrist for proper assessment and diagnosis. They will be able to assess you properly and treat accordingly. Without going to a psychiatrist it is not possible to confirm the diagnosis or start any treatment. Consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. The best treatment is a combination of medication and behavioral therapy.
