Are you talking about haemoglobin, if so has the reason behind low haemoglobin found. What s the value, did you get a peripheral blood smear test done. Only if it s due to iron deficiency or b12 deficiency the supplements can be suggested.

You have a combination of many issues that can make anyone depressed. Since you are already on medication, you must now include counseling in the therapy to get the best results. In the meantime you may follow these actions: 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.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to 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, we need to check your memory using memory test. Take care.

The motivation and determination has to come from inside you. You can either accept your condition or work towards improving it. Read influential books, paste some inspiring thoughts in your room. Be strict with yourself if you wish to see desired changes.

Respected Sir, First of all, I would like to know if your depression is a self/google-assisted diagnosis or have you actually consulted a psychiatrist who has diagnosed depression in you. If its the former, please do consult a psychiatrist to review your symptoms and reach a diagnosis. If you have already been diagnosed with depression, are you taking any form of treatment despite which your symptoms are persisting. The natural course of a depressive episode lasts 9-12 months but in some cases persistent depressive disorder is seen which too is treatable if you get the necessary help.

Good ​Morning, Feelings of laziness, lethargy, lack of energy, motivation and interest in work and things that you usually enjoyed doing in the past are all related to a debilitating condition called major depressive disorder. It can affect anybody and the lifetime incidence for such a disorder is 10-15% meaning to say that about 10-15 people in 100 will have this problem in their lifetime. I highly recommend that you consult a psychiatrist since you also seem to have social anxiety and both these conditions have effective therapy with medications and counseling.

You have to get mind control b meditaion and yoga . Suffering unwanted anxiety is very much prevalent nowadays!! It is common complaint that " I Suffer from anxiety . Please help me" Anxiety is a very normal emotion, which gives rise to feelings of nervousness every now and then. An anxiety disorder is a serious medical condition in which people experience a high degree of distress and mental trauma, which hinders a normal life. People suffering from this medical condition experience high levels of anxiety and nervousness almost all the time. Here are the cardinal symptoms that indicate you're suffering from anxiety disorder. 1. Troublesome & Excess worry - This condition prevails if you worry about the day to day activities too much on a regular basis. It is identified when you start taking too much stress about very common and routine things, related to life or work which tends to affect you in an adverse way. A noticeable sign of excessive worry can be too much fatigue. 2. Lack of Sleep/irregular, disturbed sleep - Problems in falling asleep at the right time and problems in maintaining an uninterrupted sleep are two signs that indicate you have an anxiety disorder. 3. Baseless / Irrational fears - This symptom is not generalized; instead, it is specific and subjective in relation to a particular thing or situation. The fears that are experienced under this category are sudden and unexpected in nature and there is no fixed rationale behind these fears. One may ear of death or accident or fall from a plane and so on .... 4. Muscle pain - Muscle discomfort and pain is one of the leading physiological causes of an anxiety disorder. The pain felt is chronic and pervasive, and is very common among people facing situations of anxiety. If you are exposed to constant periods of anxiety, you will experience fatigue, muscle pains and lethargy or unwillingness to work. 5. Unexplained indigestion - Problems related to the digestive system are also a sign of anxiety disorder. In this case, you may face constant digestive problems accompanied by a common disorder called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). IBS refers to an anxiety situation in the digestive tract, which is characterized by sudden urge to defecate on eating, stomach aches, cramping, bloating, gas, constipation, and/or diarrhoea.

Hi! You are suffering from mood swings. Various causes are related to mood swings. You also seem to suffer from depression and that is the reason you tend to stay aloof from everyone.

If you are interested to undergo treatment for the same you can even contact me through online consultation. Take care. Be relaxed. With regards

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Bipolar disorder, with its extreme mood swings from depression to mania, used to be called manic depressive disorder. Bipolar disorder is very serious and can cause risky behavior, even suicidal tendencies, and can be treated with therapy and medication. Please work with your psychiatrist for a cure. Take care.

Can be fully cured anybody with scihezofrenia and bipolar disorder, taking medicines (arpizol 30 and bupron xl-150) during last 3 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
No, you cannot be fully cured of these two conditions but you can become very functional and lead a fairly normal life. However, it is important to combine therapy with counseling for a long time; and effective measures for activities, skills set development, learning new coping mechanisms and being in circulation will go a long way to rehabilitate you soon. Even if it takes time be patient and persevere until you really improve. Get a lot of support from your near and dear ones and just remember to do commit yourself to the following rules of everyday living: be responsible in what you say and do; be respectful in what you say and do; and be functional in what you do, always. Do not self-medicate. Follow the doctor's prescription and keep the person well informed about all and every change you experience.

I am getting too much lazy every day what's the reason I am not getting by this I am not able to study for my xams. So kindly tell me how to become very active.

B.Sc. - Dietitics / Nutrition, Nutrition Certification,Registered Dietitian
Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
If you are feeling lazy, then it could be due to weakness. 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.
