There is no reason good enough to contemplate death. Life has a lot of problems and we must learnt to deal with it by being disciplined. Life is extremely precious and must be preserved at all cost: you have only one chance in this world and hopelessness will haunt but you can overcome all this with some help and other people. Sounds to me like you are into an anger related depression. If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back, if you are not already married. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

Hi, dizziness could be caused due to spondylosis, anaemia, dehydration, high or low blood pressure, or low sugar levels in blood. In your case, I assume you have ruled out bp, diabetes, and anaemia. Drink plentyful of water, (around 3 litres) specially if you are working in a heated environment and see the difference. If not better, go to your physician for further investigations. All the best.

I am very stressed because of studies and it is affecting my sleep cycle? What should I do. Please help me.

I am very stressed because of studies and it is affecting my sleep cycle?  What should I do. Please help me.
There is no pill for this but you can follow these tips which can be helpful: • Drink lots of water. At night, as you study, keep water at hand and sip it regularly. • Avoid tea and coffee. Yes caffeine will wake you up and give u a buzz right away .But once the effect wears off; you will feel even more tired and sleepy than you were before. This happens because these drinks dehydrate you. • Have a balanced diet: Eat a heavy and healthy breakfast but have a light dinner. If you feel hungry at night, eat fruits, dry fruits, and salads only. Avoid junk food. • Take a 20-30 minute nap during the day. This shall help you to concentrate better. • As you study, whenever you feel tired or sleepy or even stressed, take a minute to practice yoga- breathing exercises. Concentrating on your breath can help bring more oxygen to the brain which will in turn wake the body up and help clear your mind to study better. All the best!

Hi, lybrate-user  I suggest you consult your physician for smoking and if you think that you want to quit smoking so, I suggest you to take NICOTEX. NICOTEX is a chewing gum containing nicotine that helps smokers to quit smoking. It works on the proven principal of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). HOW TO QUIT SMOKING? YOU NEED TO HAVE strong will power, counselling by a psychologist & lots of motivation. I could help create a quit smoking plan and further guide you on how to take Nicotex for a period of 12 weeks. Stay committed, there are no side effects, and you can take it with your medication. Believe that you can quit. List down the reasons to quit e.g for your health, for your loved one. Schizophrenia is characteristic by thoughts or experiences that seem out of touch with reality, disorganized speech or behaviour and decreased participation in daily activities. Difficulty with concentration and memory may also be present. You will Experience with Behavioral, cognitive, mood,psychological, speech problems. I suggest you to consult a clinical psychologist immediately so that proper evaluation done. If done then attach the reports then I can help you and further therapy, activity will started accordingly. You can book your appointment.

I lost somebody last year so I feel sad what should I do and I am very alone without her.

You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

What is depression? Why do people suffer from it? How can that be identified. Are there any ways to come out of it.
Depression is a psychiatric disorder characterised by persistent sadness of mood, disinterest in work and surroundings along with associated symptoms like sleep problems, inability to experience pleasure in previously pleasurable things, decreased appetite etc present persistently for atleast 15 days. There is no specific cause for depression. But a deficiency and imbalance of certain neurotransmitters in the brain can caused precession. Treatment with antidepressants and counselling can treat depression effectively.

Hi my friend this is beginning of schizophrenia. Be careful. She is having visual hallucinations. I will prescribe some harmless and effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Buy from a reputed homoeo shop who sells original medicines. Mix 7 drops of white chestnut + 7 drops of aspen + 7 drops of cherry plum + 5 drops of mimulus. Add these to 100 ml water. Take this mixture every 12 hours for a period of 1 year. If any problems consult me online. Ok do not worry you will be all right.
