Dear, you should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. You went through a disappointing incident in the past and therefore you are feeling these symptoms. Don't worry. They are short lived. Secondly, don; t sit idle. Exercise, play games, study, learn, enhance your knowledge and get ready for a good career. Idle mind is devil's workshop, remember. Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

I started smoking a few months back and it continued for about 2 months. Now my flatmate is accusing me of giving her PCO (polycystic ovarian syndrome?). I think 2 months is very less time considering I smoked in my room and that too a max of 4-5 cigarettes a day. Is there any truth to what she is saying?

Smoking is always injurious to health. Active smoker it affects more than passive smoker. About your query, I do not think so, pcod is due to bodily hormonal disturbance. It dosent occur suddenly. It is a gradual process in which person get irregular and delayed menses, weight gain etc. Family history of thyroid is also an important factor.

Yes you need to consult a psychologist for his assesment its important to arrive on diagnosis- it seems to be either adhd or autistic features. So psychologist will take full case history along with assesments and treatment will be planned thereafter. It could also be some behavioral issues.

You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Dear doctor, I am very depress nowadays. How can I come out from this ?
Dear , I hope you are working. You should be able to understand the difference between depression and disappointment. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression. But these symptoms are short lived when compared to depression symptoms. Was there any deeply saddening or disappointing incidents in your life? is there any family problems? is there any job related stress or problems? let me know. Take care.

I am 52 yrs. and day by day my memory is going weak. Please suggest accordingly.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You must surely have been living a life of stress for many years for this development at this age. You should immediately learn some stress-management skills, and reduce the burden on your brain. You need to examine your feelings of sadness, fear and anger to see that you express them appropriately in your normal course. A counselor will definitely help you with that. Then there are certain exercises that will help you develop your memory: these are mental recalling-exercises. Do regular physical exercises, do crosswords, picture comparison, jigsaws, Sudoku, memory co-relation activities and skills. Sleep well, eat well, and learn to be fit always. You may want to go for a medical check to ascertain that there are no other serious debilitating brain conditions that are advancing on you innocuously.

Hi lybrate-user, Practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Daily for 15 minutes. Consult a psychologist for counseling.

In children with OCD between the ages of seven and 13 and adolescents 13 to 18, Prozac produced a statistically significant result compared to placebo on a measurement called "The Children's Yale Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale" Obsessive-compulsive disorder is characterized by recurrent and persistent ideas, thoughts, impulses, or images (obsessions) that are repetitive and purposeful, and intentional behaviors (compulsions) that are recognized by the person or their parent or guardian as excessive or unreasonable.
