I am sure you are another one of those who has not combined medication with counseling. Please seek the help fo a counselor and learn some specific coping skills and techniques to support the medical effects. 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.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Concentration is the result of interest, love and dedication. In your present stage, the priorities are shifting. Sometimes thd priority is career, sometime it is girlfriend, friendship, role confusion etc. In this scenario, concentration is difficult. Dedicate yourself and you can see the difference. Take care.

What she should do for daily routine? Is yoga best to relieve depression? How can I forget him?

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don’t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

Beauty is not external appearance alone. In marriage however your wife is beautiful after 3- 6 months she becomes unattractive as longevity reduces passion. The driving force behind long term happy married life is an adjustable personality. So even if the lady appears not attractive to you, if both of you are compatible in personality your married life will be happy. Even if you marry a model or an actress like beautiful lady, if there is incompatibility, marriage will be hell. Hope this helps you to make the right choice. All the best.

I. Am. Addicted of smoking marijuana. What are the effects that a body have if smoked regularly?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Not much is known about its entertainment value or benefits. 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. Now we all spoke the same language: we can stop whenever we want, it is not addictive, it is fun after all, there are so many medical benefits etc. All meant to justify the consumption. There are so many other healthy ways to be creative or to stimulate the creativity in you; and there are so many ways to ‘open’ your mind. Why choose the easy way out when it is a chemical way out? 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 a baked good 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. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don’t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: • Dizziness • Shallow breathing • Red eyes and dilated pupils • Dry mouth • Increased appetite • Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.’ It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ‘cross hallucinations’ i.e. for example, you can see sounds and hear colors!!!

You are correct engaging in an activity that you love and enjoy is the best way to fight depression, as this is the time when your brain in releasing chemical that helps counter feeling low. Perhaps so far you have managed your depression by being active and I would suggest you to continue doing the same. Also, if you are not engaged in daily walking or other form of physical exercise please start involving yourself in one of the activities you enjoy. Socializing and meeting friends and talking and laughing is another way of stress buster. Antidepressant do have addictive effect and you need to continue increasing the dose to maintain its effect. If you continue engaging in above mentioned activity. That will help you maintain at least positive ratio of positive and negative emotions and thoughts. Let me know if I can help you in any other way, wishing you very best,

Dear Sukhpreet, OCD is a chronic disorder. It causes lot of distress in you. OCD generally causes depression and high dose of antidepressants are the treatment for OCD. i hope you have tried with highest doses of 2 different type of tablets for sufficient length, over 3 years continuously. i believe your CBT went ahead upto the level of ERP fully, according to the hierarchy of symptoms. If so, you can opt for ECT, rTMS, DBT or gamma knife surgery.

Normal hemoglobin level for women is 12-14.5 gm/dl. So your hemoglobin level too low. Take iron rich foods like liver, red meat, oyester, shrimp, spinach, almond, lentil, fortified cereal. Take lots of citrus fruits. Take b-complex, folic acid rich foods like green leafy vegetables, sprout, liver, rice, dried beans, grain, peanut, banana, broccoli, fortified cereal. Take beetroot juice, apple. Along with these eat more food more often. Take plenty of protein foods. Use nutritional supplement. Use healthy fat like fish oil, olive oil, canola oil. Drink lots of water. Do regular exercise for better health. Quality sleep.

Chronic stress is associated with most chronic diseases. You have mentitled about your anxiety. I am not sure if you are doing any kind of exercise on a regular basis. Regular exercise will surely help you wit anxiety. If need be you may consult a counselor and learn few techniques to manage and overcome anxiety. This will enhance your quality of life. Also your hdl cholesterol which is a good cholesterol is relatively low. May be because you don't exercise regularly. You are quiet young. Start regular exercise Join gym or go for run or even sport like football or tennis badminton would be good. Exercise will help you wit anxiety. It will increase your good cholesterol. It will also increase your overall energy level. Which will help.you produce better result. Only good things will come out of it. Remember that our best friend and worst enemy is our own mind. If you keep worrying it will effect you adversely. And instead of worrying if you take positive actions yoh will have positive outcome. Hope this helps Wishing you very best

When one is under stress, as you are now, a lot of psychosomatic problems will arise. You need to look at your feelings of either sadness and/or anger. These emotions may be lying in your system unexpressed for various reasons and they can cause a lot of distress, including depression. What affects the mind affects the body. So talk to a counselor and doctor about your feelings and all your problems could easily be resolved, other things being normal.

I am preparing for bank po exam from last 2 years. I had prepared very well. I was good in all subjects yet I cannot convert this things into good score and did not get job .The reason is too much anxiety during exam. I cannot control my mind even during exam. I missed crucial time due to this and mind get more diverted. Due to anxiety I smoke 2 3 cigarettes before exam but I am not sure this affect my performance or not. Due to tension masturbation becomes compulsion during preparation and these thoughts constantly distracting me during exam hours. I cannot able to implement the question during exam which I had rigorously practiced during preparation yet I am able to solve it at home in same time. Due to continuous failure my confidence becomes nil.

Dear friend you know it all, can you have courage to face any result, good or bad? it is the fear of negative and obsession of positive which is causing so much unrest. For just one time, do as I suggest. Give the exams casually not keen on passing them. And you will pass! remember cigarettes have proven to increase anxiety and there is a false feeling that it relieves it. The nicotine craving builds up anxiety which one feels is relieved by smoking. Lastly even if you masturbate do not torture and start another conflict by feeling guilty. Chill.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Repetition of some activities till getting satisfied is not a mental disorder. For example, people check the door lock repeatedly, check the switches, check the doors of cars repeatedly etc. These are considered normal activities. If you have something more than this, and if the repetition manifests tension or anxiety within you, then it could be obsessive compulsive disorder.
