Hi there, Ask for help and support If even the thought of tackling your depression seems overwhelming, don’t panic. Feeling helpless and hopeless is a symptom of depression—not the reality of your situation. It does not mean that you’re weak or you can’t change! The key to depression recovery is to start small and ask for help. The simple act of talking to someone face to face about how you feel can be an enormous help. The person you talk to doesn’t have to be able to fix you; he or she just needs to be a good listener. Having a strong support system will speed your recovery. Isolation fuels depression, so reach out to others, even if you feel like being alone or don’t want to feel like a burden to others. The truth is that most people will be happy that you chose to confide in them; they’ll be flattered that you trust them enough to open up. So, let your family and friends know what you’re going through and how they can support you. Make healthy lifestyle changes Lifestyle changes are not always easy to make, but they can have a big impact on depression. Lifestyle changes that can be very effective include: Cultivating supportive relationships Getting regular exercise and sleep Eating healthfully to naturally boost mood Managing stress Practicing relaxation techniques Challenging negative thought patterns Build emotional skills Many people lack the skills needed to manage stress and balance emotions. Building emotional skills can give you the ability to cope and bounce back from adversity, trauma, and loss. In other words, learning how to recognize and express your emotions can make you more resilient. Seek professional help If support from family and friends, positive lifestyle changes, and emotional skills building aren’t enough, seek help from a mental health professional. There are many effective treatments for depression, including therapy, medication, and alternative treatments. Learning about your options will help you decide what measures are most likely to work best for your particular situation and needs. Sincerely,

Cannabis An Ancient Treatment For Epilepsy

Advance Course in Neuro linguistic Programming, Diploma In Dyslexic Studies, Masters In Psychological Counselling
Psychologist, Mumbai

Cbd oil for epilepsy


Cannabis indica and cannabis sativa have been used therapeutically for thousands of years, including for the treatment of epilepsy. Today, cannabis is viewed as a controversial medical subject - thanks in large part to prohibition and decades of misinformation - but prior to 1937's 'marihuana tax act' cannabis was accepted by doctors and patients as a true medicine, and considered one of the safest and most effective forms of seizure control medication.

Is there any medicine to quit smoking?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, (MRCPSYCH-UK)
Psychiatrist,
If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-addiction medications and de addiction treatment. Burpopion, verinicline are some anti smoking medications which you can get from a qualified psychiatrist.

What should I do for meditation. I am not able to concentrate on my work. When I am in stress.

Dear, I can understand. At your age concentration through meditation is a futile effort. That may not be possible at all. Instead engage yourself in games and enjoy with friends. That builds up concentration. Take care.

Dear welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

I am diagnosed with bipolar 2 and borderline personality disorder. Do I have to take medicine my whole life?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I am diagnosed with bipolar 2 and borderline personality disorder. Do I have to take medicine my whole life?
Probably, if you do not combine medication with counseling. Both can be crippling diseases if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. So quickly visit a psychiatrist and seek his/her opinion and you must then follow the medication prescribed. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime, you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in an appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also, you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation are good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i. E. Feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding.

I hv been using clofranil 10 mg half a tablet for last 4 years, to control anxiety, can I stop using it now.
Please do not stop the medicine all by yourself. Please talk to your doctor and learn whether it will be a good idea to stop it. If the doctor's opinion is that you should continue, try to learn the reasons for the advice. Psychotropic drugs are useful treatments for psychiatric symptoms but often are not curative. To continue to get benefits of the treatment one needs to continue consuming the medicines. If you need to stop the medicine for some specific reason e.g. drug side effects or allergic reactions or adverse interactions with another drug that some other doctor has prescribed or contraindication in some other medical condition etc then ask the doctor to help you taper the dose off. Frequently, stopping psychotropic drugs all at once can produce a "drug withdrawal reaction" and to prevent that, one must taper the dose 'gradually'. Please ask the doctor to supervise the gradual taper. Only the doctor can tell you what 'gradual' can be, from his clinical experience.

I lost somebody close last year since I feel very depressed and prefer to keep my self 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.

Not having a job is very serious issue for a person who is planning to marry. It seems your fiance needs time - give him time . Your constant attempt to speak to him , may be embarrassing for him . Be his strength. If he really cares , he will call when he is comfortable.

Hi Anxiety disorders are usually quite troublesome for the patient as well as for family members as it is impossible for them to make the patient understand the reality. Its almost impossible for anyone to make the patient relax. Patient continuously thinks and speaks about only those things which are in her mind. Patients suffering from Anxiety Disorders are not ready to take medicine easily as they think its not a medicinal problem and medicines will harm me further with their side effects. It seems more so in case of your mom. As far as ayurvedic treatment is concerned I cannot throw much light on that being not an expert on the field; but, I will suggest homoeopathic treatment for your mom because our medicines are quite effective in these kind of cases. Moreover homoeopathic medicines are very easy to take and are free of any kind of side effects. BUT, its very important that her case needs to dealt with sensitivity as she might not trust any physician. On basis of the short history I can not suggest any medication as a detailed history is required for successful treatment, which includes listening to her patiently and then figuring out the origin of the problem and then treatment can be done accordingly. For that you can make use of this platform to contact me.

I am 28 year old women. I feel highly stressed because of my relationship. I have a boy friend who I wish to marry. He is 4 years younger to me. For the last 3.5 years we were working together and everything was going fine between us but now he started working in an MNC at a very low salary. He was always looking for space away from as I am dominating. I always doubt me because whenever we go out I always catch him looking at women and then we fight. Since he started working I doubt he might find some other girl girl and will ditch me for her. I asked him not to join the job he is currently working in as I am afraid to loose him but his family wanted to do this job as his brother in law referred him on this position, his family was afraid that if he will not join then his brother in law would never help him again finding a job for him. Since he started working I haven't spoken to him because I am furious. I am unable to sleep and I don't know what to do. I think I am going to into depression. Please help.

I think that you are the problem in this relationship with regard to how it is going, which is not good by the sound of it. Perhaps you being older makes you want to dominate like a mother: this may eventually lead to smothering and he may seek to move away from you. You may also tend to do this because of your own insecurities, especially the fear of his ditching you. If he looks at other girls, that is not a crime or any indication of his infidelity. You are so dominating that you wanted him to stay on with the job with you because of your fear of losing him! You need to show more maturity and let him choose his jobs and make his decisions unless you know of good reasons that they were bad for him: not because they could bad for you. You cannot force him into this relationship, if he does not want it. So let him be, and if he does not come back to you, then you know he did not love you and you must accept that however difficult it is for you. The reasons could be many but it is not worth studying unless you want to learn something for your future. Part of the problem could be the age difference, where ideally he should have been older than you. If he is meant for you anyway, he will come back. But don’t wait for too long and before you get into another relationship, do some work on your insecurities. I don't understand why you are taking Betaloc. If it is for a heart problem, then it is of great concern that you have that at this age. Your insecurities may be rather stressful.
