What is the treatment for depression?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS

Dear, depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings and sense of well-being. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Dear , at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, need to check your memory using memory test.

Mental health diseases cant be cured by medicines alone and that is the biggest mistake you did in last 22 years. Medicines can only treat. This is all stress and worries of life. You may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. Want to meet/speak to connect me.

It is very likely that she is afraid and that she is not playing sexual games of playing hard to get. If she is genuinely afraid take her to a female sexologist and have her discuss her fears to overcome whatever the false impression she may have about sex or intercourse: even a gynecologist would do . If not, she could do with some sex education and understand that this is normal between a man and a woman in marriage. If the communication between you two is okay, she can talk to you and express her fears and you can help her. Anyway you have to be very gentle with her and literally coax her into wanting sex. Some Indian girls have been brought up in very protected environments and may have a lot of inhibitions about exposing their bodies to anyone, let alone a man, and her perception may be of severe abhorrence of sex because of the invasion into her body, and private parts at that. So a lot of care, gentleness and love must be exercised to tease her out of her inhibitions. Remember that the most important sexual organ is the brain: if you work on convincing and seducing her mind by gentle talk, she could be brought out of her anxiety and shyness. If you are effective, you can bring her to a point of no return by enticing the sexual desire, just by your talk! If talk is not enough and she allows you to touch her, then it is possible to drive her libido even more effectively by tapping and stimulating her erogenous zones: lower back, ears, back of the neck, inner thighs, nape of the neck, mouth/lips, nipples, breasts, vagina, and clitoris. You must progress gradually on these zones, little at a time, and when you see that she is receptive and is looking for more you may progress on to the more intense areas. Never hurry, as men are wont to do. And never attempt to do all of it on the same occasion. If she has a small vaginal opening, which can be dealt with even by her gynecologist, and in worse cases, she can have it opened surgically.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

Since 3 years I am smoking. I thought I will quit now. On a normal day I smoke upto 7. If in party it amounts to 12. I've never tried to quit before. Now I really want to quit. What would be measures to do so? I thought of using nicotine patches or any other ways to quit smoking once and for all.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. 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 on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. 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. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, 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 the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat 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 chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and 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. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Dear respected doctor, I'm in a big trouble and the cause of this trouble is the quantity of anger in me. The anger inside me is I think more than any other person. As a result of this anger I'm unable to concentrate on studies. It just gives me stress all the time. And because of a very bad temper I usually get involved in fights. My parents are also worried about me. Dear doctor please help me and give me the best solution for this. And also tell me that eating or drinking what, will cause anger and aggressiveness or what I should not include in my diet to avoid anger.

Dear lybrate user, anger cannot be controlled with diet. Anger is a result of your own values, beliefs and expectations. You need to see what is making you angry. Since you have lots of anger, you need some outlet. It will be very helpful if you consult a counsellor. Please talk to your school and college counsellor. Take care.

Dear, bipolar disorder needs to be managed properly. In fact, almost all psychiatric medicines manage mental illness. You need to take it positive and learn to live life with satisfaction. Work hard, play games, entertainy ourself, enjoy life etc. These are the steps necessary to manage your bipolar. If you worry more, the conditions worsens. Sweating of palms and feet are due to anxiety and other allied causes. God bless you. Take care.

Hello, so long story in short is that I think I developed addiction to smoking marijuana in last 1.5 years. I have decided to give it up forever and it has already been 2 days now. The problem comes with the withdrawal effects which includes:-Severe Insomnia -gastric and digestion issues -Nausea -Anxiety issues which makes you angry and irritated. -Heart palpitations when extremely irritated. Now I realize I have to deal with them but it's not good for my social life and sometimes the symptoms are at their worst for a few moments. I know working out helps but couldn't join a gym because of all the uneasiness. Is there any way to reduce the symptoms or keep them in check? Things I tried:- Supplementation with L- Taurine. - zeedron d for gastric issues. I lost 12 kg's in this time and earlier I used to be buffed with 87 kg. I mostly lost all my muscle weight.

Hi lybrate-user, mood swings, or rapid changes in one's emotional state, may occur as a reaction to circumstances or environment, as a result of a physical or mental health condition, or for no apparent reason. General moodiness is likely to be a part of everyone's life, but in some circumstances, changes in mood may be severe and have an effect on health and daily function. When rapid or frequent mood shifts seem to occur without a cause or when they affect one's behavior, well-being, or typical function, the support of a therapist or other mental health professional may be helpful. Mood swings are often associated with persistent expectations for bad things to happen or, in other words, negative thinking. For example, you might be waiting to hear back from a job and assume you didn't get it after only a day has passed. Or maybe your mother has informed you that she has something to tell you and you immediately assume that she's deathly ill. Not only is this kind of negative thinking often inaccurate, it can also dramatically affect your mood and lead you to feel very angry and upset, typically for little to no" real" reason.[1] there are two different tricks you can try for dealing with such unhealthy automatic thinking: take a step back and relax. Instead of assuming the worst that can happen, think about all of the other scenarios that are possible. This will help you realize that the worst is not likely to happen, and that there's no point in getting all upset until you know more information. Alternately, you could consider the worst possible scenario and prepare for it, just in case. By ensuring that you are well prepared for even the worst case scenario you can imagine, you might be able to focus your attention on something else instead of dwelling on the unpredictable consequences that could result from it. Secondly, overgeneralizing is another way that you may lead yourself into a bad mood. Maybe you had a bad interaction on a date or with a co-worker. So what? you may think this means that you'll never find love or that you're going to be fired, but you shouldn't let this one situation or conversation make you feel like it's indicative or determinant of other trends in your life. This kind of generalizing is bound to make you moody and upset, but there is a way to counteract it. Remind yourself that what happened was an isolated incident. Instead of assuming one incident (such as a disagreement with a coworker or date) is reflective of your entire relationship with this person, consider it as a one-off and something that doesn't happen very often. Remind yourself of all of the success you have had in this realm, whether it's your work life or your romantic life, and you'll be able to calm down a bit and realize that there's no need to get all worked up about it. Maintain a well balanced diet and exercise regularly. Consult a psychologist for mood monitoring.
