I am a 27 years old person and have so much depression, what should I do?
Dear , you should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were you disappointed in the near past? I will help you. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. For other four treatment methods, I will help you.

When I was small I use to faint on one ocassion of the other. At the age of 19, I developed some unpleasantness in my body. I was told that it is not stomch problem rather schizophrenia. I took medicine and did a lot of exercise I became normal. Subsequently, at the age 31 the same problem replapsed. This lasted for two years & medicine and exercise were of no help. Subsequently, I improved through some homepathic medicine. At the age of 50, the same problem began and I fainted on several ocassions. After thinking it to be again a' psychiatric problem, I was told that it is' seizure. I took medicine for 4 years but all through I was not the same self. When the doctor reduced medicine the seizure once again recurred. At age of 56 years I am both on psychiatric medicine (nexito 10) and neurological medicine (3 eptoin & 1-2 lacoset). What is the problem with me? is it going to last for the remaining years of my life? does schizophernia at an earlier stage becomes epilepsy in the later stage of life? as per horroscope moon means mind and 6th house means desease. My simple strength moon is the 6th house. Moon also means mother. My sister was born 11 months after my birth and hence separated. When I was borne there was heavy rain and there was moon in the sky. On fool moon day i. E. Lunar the lunatics in an assylum are told to see the full moon.

Physiotherapist,
Are you sure with your diagnosis. Kindly consult psychologist first. I think you fell down be cause of only epilepsy. But I dont feel it will be schizophernia.

Memory power can be increased by repetition and recollection. Remove all tensions and worries and keep your mind calm when you study. Focus on what you study and understand. Then close your book and recollect what you studied. Write down several times. By this way you can increase your memory.

How long does cannabis stay in the body after smoking? and also how it can be controlled?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Tetrahydrocannabinol, the active ingredient in marijuana, stays in your system for at least a month after stopping. There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it. The obsession and compulsive use is when you become addicted to the substance. Just for your information here’s what WebMD has to say: ‘No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat baked goods or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours.If you are finding it very difficult to give it up on your own then admit yourself in a rehabilitation center and go through the 12 steps to recovery. After that attend NA meetings and keep yourself clean forever. You will need to alter your lifestyle, change your friends, your haunts, your habits, etc. You must learn to have fun in clean ways. You must exercise regularly, eat well and sleep well. Emotionally you must be able to handle your feelings by expressing them appropriately. A counselor will teach you about emotions and how to handle them.

Dear , your wife has arthritis. I think the pain related to the arthritis is driving her crazy and she could not sleep. You could discuss the matter with her doctor.

Hi lybrate-user you got to get over a lot of negative notions in your head which automatically pop up when you sense an emotional closeness. This is the experiences you have had in your life which direct your reactions and behaviour. You need to get rid of these negative patterns of thinking process which is possible if you see a therapist. On a regular basis. I hope this helps. Take care.

Hi, How can i improve memory power? please suggest something.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. I can provide you more tips. Take care.

Stay away from smart phone addiction

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist,
Do you want to avoid potential health risks? if your answer is yes than please limit your use of cell phones. People who have used their cell phones for a long period of time are at greater risk of certain kinds of brain tumors, clinical depression, addiction, headaches and dizziness. If you do choose to use a cell phone, use the speakerphone function whenever possible. Please keep the phone about one feet away from any body part. Please do not keep the phone on your belt or in your pocket even when you are not using it, as the radiation will penetrate your body wherever the phone is attached. For times when a speakerphone isn't practical, use air tube head set rather than a wireless blue tooth. Please ask yourself:- 1. Which is important. Your health or money? 2. Promise yourself one day at a time that I will minimize the cell phone use. 3. Use lap top instead of phone for social chatting. 4. Use land lines if you are in the office or whenever possible. We want to see you happy, free and joyous. This addiction is very dangerous and injurious. Please try to stay away as much as you can.

Dear lybrate-user. This feeling is actually called infatuation. You should understand the situation. You can engage in sex with the guy, but I will not advice it. You don't have to think about marriage now. Within few days, these obsessive thoughts will pave way for more serious career related thoughts. You are having' crunch' now. This is normal. Take care.

It happens sometimes that we develop affection and attachment for people of same sex because they are friendly with us and care for us. As a result we don't want to lose them which is very natural. But when this possessiveness becomes out of control and we think too much about being with that person all the time then we feel jealous when that person is with others. Try to see that you can never have complete control over someone else's life. How can you expect that your friend or this girl can always talk to you and not with others. This is practically not possible. All of us meet with so many people each day and we happen to interact with them at varying levels. So if you feel that she should not talk with other guys then you need to change your perception. You think this is some illness. You have provided a label to your feelings of anxiety and sadness as similar to sickness. You are scared from these feelings of affection towards her. You feel insecure and alone when she is with others because you feel you will lose her. But here you need to understand that your insecurity is making you feel that way. We can not possess anyone forever. You also need to understand that what are the reasons for this insecurity. Do you have very few friends? Do you feel shy in making new friends? Are you generally shy and hesitant in interacting with people? Are you in general overpossessive about personal things? If your answer to most of these questions is yes, then you seem to be an introvert and you need to develop proper social skills. Because you do not fully understand your emotions. You should meet a psychologist who can make you understand your feelings better. The more you will understand your emotions better, the more you will be able to regulate them. Right now your feelings towards your friend are uncontrolled and against your wishes. This is making you feel worried about yourself. Calling it an illness would be a big decision and you should first try to understand your feelings properly. Then you will be able to distinguish which emotion is healthy and which is not.
