My wife is going through depression problem. Her age is 28 years. Please suggest what can be done.
Dear Lybrate user, Depression involves feelings of helplessness, hopelessness and worthlessness about the self, world and future. There is also a distinct lack of interest in activities that were once enjoyable and there might also be changes in sleeping and eating habits. If you notice any of these in your wife, then I suggest you consult a clinical psychologist who will be able to help you and your wife cope with the symptoms effectively.

Dear , Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

It is not unusual in our society to not have strong marital relationship and most people do not focus on improving the same. Any relationship needs both focus and work of love to continue to be good. Marriage is no exception. There could be many reason like having a child or you also are working and busy wit house hold work. On top of this your in law issues. All these things drains you and you don't have time and energy left for your marriage. Similar thing cloud be possible for your husband. Right now you seem to be under lot of stress. If you could take few days off and go on a little holiday trip with your husband and son. Please do that. You both need to talk and understand each other and decide what is important for you. You may consult a marriage counselor who can help you work on I creasing positivity inna relationship and on an individual level. I understand that your son needs your focus attention ans love at the same time your relationship to. When I am saying you both need to talk. Inam not saying just blame each other and fight. I really want you to listen to each other deeply a d understand and make the bond of friendship stronger. My speciality is marriage and parenting. If you need any further advice or concrete guideline to be happy and content feel free to contact me. Wishing you very best.

Dear , phobia and anxiety disorder is not a disease. It is a disorder. Mental disorder not requires medicines. Psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation etc are enough to cure your problem. You must learn and educate yourself about your anxiety disorder. The more you try to" cure" your anxiety, anxiety increases and cure is not possible. You have to change your mindset.

Are you under any kind of stress? Stress is a memory buster. Meet with a counselor and deal with that to get a total restoration f your memory.In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

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.

Hello, if you are feeling severely depressed, your lack of sleep could be because of it. Sleep disturbances like lack or excess of sleep are a common and major symptom of depression. Sleeping pills is a temporary solution. It will not help if the cause of your sleep problem is depression, infact sleeping pills worsen depression. Antidepressants which promote healthy sleep will treat your insomnia as well as depression. For better sleep, follow some tips:- 1) make your room completely dark at night. 2) your room must be well ventilated. 3) a warm shower and head massage with oil before sleep time. 4) avoid tea/coffee after 5.00pm. Don't sleep in day. And don't use bed for eating /watching tv. Take care.
