My mother is a 58 year aged house wife. She has an extreme sort of depression that we understand. Initially from 3-4 years she used to ate sleeping pills in high numbers (10 to 16) but survived each time. We sometimes thought that she wanted to express her feeling to get attention but this time it was very high level but some how we were able to save her although she was kept on ventilator also in hospital for 7 days of the total 21 days. What we understand is that she wants to be taken care of on highest priority in any case or time otherwise she has a negative mindset and when she is given extra importance in daily routine then she use to dominate other people in the home. I am totally stuck in between. What to do because in any of the movement there happens a problem. Please advice.

Hi, it would be good if you could take your mother to a psychologist/ counsellor for weekly sessions to address her concerns. Psychologists are trained to handle depression and related concerns through one to one therapy wherein they not only give the patient empathy, positive regard but also become agents for positive change. I am not able to understand from your question whether she is on any anti depressant treatment as well. If not you need to see a psychiatrist since her symptoms seem acute and she needs medication as well. Meanwhile please ensure that she is not left unattended and does not have access to sleeping pills or sharp instruments etc easily.

hi, I can understand your feelings. But if the doctors are suggesting that your problem is irreversible then don't fight with it. Just accept it. You have tried your best. Now it's time to concentrate on your strength not on your weakness. Find a job which is suitable to your present health condition. Now a days many options are available. Keep Helen Keller or Prof. Stephen Hawking's example in your mind. When they can why can't you. All the best regards Sunita

Hello Arjun, Any kind of heart break and/or separation can cause emotional pain and lead to a lowered self esteem too. Time is the best healer in such a case. Give yourself time. You will bounce back to normal in a few months. Additonally keep yourself engaged with whatever work/studies you do. When your heart feels heavy with sadness or anger then find an outlet for your sadness or anger; express these emotions to someone else in whatever way you can, either by talking to someone or by writing, drawing or singing about it. Hope this helps. Ttake care of yourself in this phase and don't run the events of the past in your midn like a reel. Allow your mind and body to heal. Good Luck.

Hi I am kamal 24 years old. Its been 3 years I am on medication. My doctor said you are suffering from social anixiety. The medician help me to keep calm and relax. But communication is my big problem. I am working with international bpo where I need excellent communication to handle the u. S. Clients. But I cannot think clearley I always face problem while speaking. My thought process suddenly stucks and I feel I dont have anything to speak. But there are days when I speak with great confidence and handle the clients in good manner. It suddenly changes to other side where I face the same problem which I described above. I really need to resolve it. This is the big issue in my life please advice. My medications are buprone 300xl. Buspin10 mg. Vitamin capsule and fludec 20 mg capsule. Please advise.

The big mistake you are making is that you are not also in therapy. All the issues you describe are exactly suitable to be sought from counseling support. You should have a review of the medication too anyway after you mention these symptoms. The combination of therapy and medication is ideal for a proper recovery. Please attend a personality development course that highlights the five-factorial approach: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual quotients. If you develop in these five areas, you will certainly improve your confidence. Some personality courses emphasize and focus on public speaking to a large extend. It is not too bad an idea but it is a little narrow in perspective. You could instead attend a toast masters club, which does the same thing in a more organized manner. Apart from regular and aerobic exercise, you must also visit a gym to build a good body image. You can go for personal grooming classes too. While regular vigorous exercise develops your body, the regimen will also enlarge your heart and help you handle stressful situations much more competently than others who don? t exercise. Dress well, eat well, sleep well and conduct yourself well in social circles to build confidence. Perform well in your work, and feel good about your achievements. You could also go for hypnosis sessions to build your self-image from within. In addition, indulge spiritual wellness, faith and prayer that will boost your confidence really well. Emotional wellness will take care of the fear factor, which is your big problem. There are lots of affirmations, if said three times at a time, everyday, they will gradually strengthen your concept of yourself and your confidence. Yoga and meditation will also build you up. Speaking to a counselor will give you personal assistance in pursuing these changes. If the change in mood fluctuates from extremes of low to euphoria, you must report this to the doctor, immediately. You are young and a lot can be done only if you cooperate and combine medication with therapy.

How to mange my body power and how to increase my mind power and ability and how to strong my body.

How to mange my body power and how to increase my mind power and ability and how to strong my body.
Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Dear questioner, my advice will be to taper off the drugs gradually in consultation with your psychiatrist. It will need some doing as withdrawal and physical and psychological dependence on them. I hold the view that drugs (anti-depressants/anti convulsants) are chemicals and most of its exact mechanism still unknown to the experts as well. They are like necessary evils, they will not cure you, but act as palliatives which actually with their hosts of physical and mental adverse effects will worsen esp lithium. Bipolar disorder has a strong genetic component and predisposition to it. My advice would be to enjoy the high or hyperactive state and not try to see it as apart of disease. (only avoidance of physical harm to be seen) and in the low or depression period, not fight the period, trying to get over with it. This struggle intensifies the depression we all have highs and lows, not with the same intensity though and it is due to expectation or an ideal which we are desperate to chase. How should one be. Is the one doing the mischief. Since and till we are chasing happiness, so long we will be unhappy. This is my genuine view which is backed by strong conviction. It is difficult. But think over it. Do what you feel like. Medicines /some medicines or no medicines. But enjoy your highs as much as you can and let your physician always be in the loop if you wish to taper the medicines. Take care.

How could I leave smoking? It is becoming addiction for me. And what are the names of gum which should I prefer to for leaving smoking.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Your BP is rather high and your headaches do not augur well. Kindly meet your doctor regarding this and maybe s/he will review the medication. But ideally, the depression which often goes with anxiety may be causing a lot of distress to trigger high BP. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor of his or her choice you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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 scorching 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 every day and learn to be contented 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.

For some people chocolate helps to reduce stress but it cannot be consumed regularly in large quantity as it has more calories and may lead to obesity. You can try breathing techniques and meditation or meet a counselor who can help you with techniques to overcome the emotional problem. Hope the above information helps you lead a good life. God bless!

In the beginning you may experience some milder form of side effects like dry mouth, constipation etc. Until you become well-adjusted. A few major side effects may occur to 3.9% of the population according to a study, only after continuous use of the drug for many years. Your psychiatrist knows when to reduce the doses or stop it. Please keep in touch with her.
