Hi. I have been having many obsessive thoughts, for 3 days because my friend gave me the news that he got cancer, upon receiving that news, I felt such a deep fear, that from that day I can not stop having thoughts like "he is going to dying, some day he will not be here, someday we will not talk again "and having these thoughts I am so afraid, I have anxiety and I do not know if that is the reason of having all these thoughts by most of the day. Help me, how could I stop thinking?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about having fear of illness, germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples like sexual thoughts, counting, checking, orderliness, etc. When the suffering is much usually the individuals have secondary depression/ or anxiety. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. Consult a psychiatrist. All the best.

I am a 36 year old male and I think I have depression, Can you tell me the Symptoms.

I am a 36 year old male and I think I have depression, Can you tell me the Symptoms.
Hi, Depression varies from person to person, but there are some common signs and symptoms. It’s important to remember that these symptoms can be part of life’s normal lows. But the more symptoms you have, the stronger they are, and the longer they’ve lasted—the more likely it is that you’re dealing with depression. Signs and symptoms of depression include: Feelings of helplessness and hopelessness. A bleak outlook—nothing will ever get better and there’s nothing you can do to improve your situation. Loss of interest in daily activities. You don’t care anymore about former hobbies, pastimes, social activities, or sex. You’ve lost your ability to feel joy and pleasure. Appetite or weight changes. Significant weight loss or weight gain—a change of more than 5% of body weight in a month. Sleep changes. Either insomnia, especially waking in the early hours of the morning, or oversleeping. Anger or irritability. Feeling agitated, restless, or even violent. Your tolerance level is low, your temper short, and everything and everyone gets on your nerves. Loss of energy. Feeling fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained. Your whole body may feel heavy, and even small tasks are exhausting or take longer to complete. Self-loathing. Strong feelings of worthlessness or guilt. You harshly criticize yourself for perceived faults and mistakes. Reckless behavior. You engage in escapist behavior such as substance abuse, compulsive gambling, reckless driving, or dangerous sports. Concentration problems. Trouble focusing, making decisions, or remembering things. Unexplained aches and pains. An increase in physical complaints such as headaches, back pain, aching muscles, and stomach pain.

I am 45 year old lady and into severe depression and anxiety. Hence I dont get sleep at all. I tried many ways like taking milk, banana and ayurvedic medicines. But nothing helped out. Please suggest me what should I do?

In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time?

You should start taking speech therapy. You also need to work on your confidence. Reduce your rate of speech, stop avoiding situations in which you feel less confident.

My brother suffering from schizophernia since last 20 yrs. We take medicine from Doctor in ranchi

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Schizophrenia is a debilitating disease, if neglected by the functional people around, and if the person is allowed to do whatever he feels like doing. Quickly get him for therapy (it will be a long-term exercise) and have him put on a tight time-schedule of activities and functions. If you support and are firm with him, much work and action can be gotten out of him. He will become dysfunctional and passive, day by day. If left alone, he will internalize his thoughts, which could only be highly distorted, and this could worsen his condition. He should be active enough to support the work of the psychotropic drugs, and develop some coping skills with the counseling. He is still young and I believe with a lot of scope to at least become a productive member of society. Further neglect of this state of affairs will make him a life-time burden to whoever is left to guardian him. If you are the older brother, you could possibly make him do things to support becoming functional. He needs a firm hand and some force to have him comply with the therapist? s expectations. He must be kept occupied and productive every day.

Hi, First get yourself properly examined from a nearby doctor to know the exact diagnosis as the information given by you is insufficient. Get your blood tested (empty stomach) for – CBC, ESR, AEC, Widal, Peripheral smear for MP; also, Sputum examination, an X-ray (chest), Urine (R & M) and Stool examination (R & M) done. (In case required, may advise you some other tests later). Revert me with the reports for proper treatment.

I am really depressed. And I have tried everything but I think I should take medication.

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor 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.
