No. Always think positively. Take enough rest Practise yoga, relaxation techniques. Engage yourself in a hobby. Always try to work with full concentrations & enthusiasm. Listen to your favourite music. Travel & visit tourists places. Have a good food. Please keep yourself away from negative thought s. Actually you do not have any problem to worry.

Thanks doctor for your advice. My question is: how do I practically go about managing my depression? Can you advise me about anti-depressants and their own side effects? Your counselling is essential.

Hi lybrate user Don't diagnose anything by yourself please take help of any professional regarding this.in the mean time try to follow my suggestions-make some good friends with whom you can share your feelings as one research in USA it is proven that by sharing feelings our stress level decreases by 60 % ,make some good friends ,join any hobby class,expand your social circle,Do Yoga and meditation,in short don't sit and think on this topic again and again it will give you nothing and only will increase your frustration level , what presently require is to rule out the reason for your problem .eat healthy food,eat dark chocolates,eat multigrain chapati,jowar,eat green vegetables,green salad,sprouts,fiberous food,seasonal fruits,curd,avoid junk and spicy food .take care.

I lost some body close last year and since then feel very depress and prefer keeping to myself all the time.
It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

You have not mentioned your age but if you are young, then there may be a need to meet with a counselor along with your parents to determine any contributing factors from childhood. First of all, the intensity of stress is in the perception. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Apart from that, all your emotions need to be dealt with by expression i.e. You need to talk about the feelings. Then you need to exercise regularly, eat fiber foods (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), sleep at least 8 hours every day, learn Yoga and meditation, learn stress management, and do a personality development course. Because you are into studies, follow a tight schedule, with good breaks and study habits. If group study helps you, do it with the right people. If tutoring is required, arrange for the same. These should see you through successfully without the stress. The headache is related to your anger and needs some expressions to deal with it.

The double effect of smoking and drinking will definitely affect your erectile capability. Smoking directly impacts your erection and it can do so immediately when you smoke. You can recover completely with quitting smoking and going on an exercise program immediately. You may visit a sexologist to determine the extent of damage and that person will also give you problem-specific actions to take.

From the complaints you have put up it seems you have had a relapse of depression recently due to which you continue to feel sad and'negative' it is also common for a depressed person to have thoughts of self harm. In such a case I would recommend the following - do not stay alone. Be with a family member or close friend always. - share your feelings even the thoughts of self harm with someone. Most of the times they are just impulsive and may dampen on sharing. - depression like any illness needs treatment and counselling - do not hesitate or delay visiting a psychiatrist. Once you rare out of depression you will know the difference.

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

I am 22 years old mail habitual of smoking 1-3 cigarette a day from last 5 years. I want to quit it. Kindly confirm will it create any problem after quitting or will it be okay?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You will be very thankful fr having quit this bad habit and there will be no problems but a lot of good health and happiness. Initially it will be difficult but please persevere. When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

This is a typical anxiety attack which is a cycle of irrelevant thoughts which make you panic over nothing. Perceived future is a probability. Focus on what you have to do now. Not about what may happen in future.

Hello, so long story in short is that I think I developed addiction to smoking marijuana in last 1.5 years. I have decided to give it up forever and it has already been 2 days now. The problem comes with the withdrawal effects which includes:-Severe Insomnia -gastric and digestion issues -Nausea -Anxiety issues which makes you angry and irritated. -Heart palpitations when extremely irritated. Now I realize I have to deal with them but it's not good for my social life and sometimes the symptoms are at their worst for a few moments. I know working out helps but couldn't join a gym because of all the uneasiness. Is there any way to reduce the symptoms or keep them in check? Things I tried:- Supplementation with L- Taurine. - zeedron d for gastric issues. I lost 12 kg's in this time and earlier I used to be buffed with 87 kg. I mostly lost all my muscle weight.

First of all and very urgently, seek help from a qualified- at least a phd psychologist with experience in psychological testing. Get psychological testing for correct diagnosis of illness. Once, you get the reports, your psychologist will tell you whether it is a mental illness that requires treatment by medicines or some psychological problem. In case of an illness, treatment is given by psychiatrist in the form of medicine. In case of psychological problems, treatment is given by psychologist in the form of counselling and psychotherapy. If the problem is psychological, it will never be cured by medicines. So, first step is correct diagnosis.

How can I control peace of mind .while studying without diverting my mind on other topics.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear user, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Don't force the child as it irritates the child. Child do not have any cognition which leads to perception and understanding. Child is inclined to where he gets love and affection. Provide love and affection to the child as much as possible. Whenever he calls you by other names, correct him gently and ask him to call you mom. But do not force. Please wait, everything will be alright. I suggest online counseling to you. Take care.
