Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I forget something what I read. This can be called a short memory loss. So what should I do to increase my memory power. I am 20 years old.

Dear Bikas, 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. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

hi rosy, your concern is right, your husband is very insure about the relation, first make him confident that you are in love with him and you will never cheat him. make him realize each and every day that you are very loyal and cant live without him, do not stop talking with others,this will create another level of problem in your life. spend more time with your husband.

Hello lybrate user frist off all you hav to reduce your stress just try to do meditation atleast 15 min in a day. Avoid overnight study utilize you r day time more for study. For dark circles use potato juice for local application let it dry and wash with water. Try to make you r schedule like you do not hav to study late nights it is important. Wish you good health and best luck for exam.

You can have a basic screening test for your emotions, including anxiety. If it is something mild you can undergo CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), is significant a short course of medications will relieve your symptoms. All the best. Consult a psychiatrist.

I understand your feelings for your father. Me too had it. And the feelings remains in us for ever but decreasing in its intensity as we realize the reality of life which is like a coin with two sides ie. Birth and death. Death is only the end of this episode. And its applicable to all of us. So you can do something creative when his memories comes to you. So it becomes a good tribute to your father.

Hello, Practicing yoga helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1.Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2.Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head.

Doctor, I'm a 36 year old girl. I have a slight loss of memory when it come to work that I keep forgetting about certain works I did the day before or the payments I made and received. This is creating a little problem at work. And I do keep over thinking about my future as I want a career and I have been getting proposals for marriage, when i'm not at all ready for it. I wish to work and make some money. I keep avoiding all the family get together and meetings with relatives as they keep asking me about my exams (I'm a CA student. I wanted to be a designer in the first place, but was ok with mothers choice. Even I agreed to it. But I regret it very badly now. I asked several times to switch my career choice and all I kept getting as reply was "try. Try" I am literally tired now. I could not pass the levels in B A and now I stand with a UG degree and 3 years experience. Best part is articleship is not counted as experience when you apply for jobs. I still tried and my applications are getting rejected. I sleep a lot. I keep thinking a lot. And I'm worried about my future. Above these worries to have a proper career, my parents want me to get married. I do not want to marry without my own job, and live the rest of my life with someones money. I want my own income. Doctor, I do not know if these are nonsense or if i'm being immature, but I do face a lot of mental stress and my friends say that I have changed and become more silent, when I used to be a very lively person. I want support from my parents side. All I want is that. If I should be able to do something, then I need only them to be strong and have faith in me and god. I tried convincing them, but every next time they come up with another proposal that too of 31 and 32 years old,(they think age defines maturity, but I do not believe when they them self is an example. As I have not mentioned anything about my choices. Please guide me if i'm wrong with my views regarding life and career. Thank you Doctor.

First of all, take a fresh diary and write on its first page as to. What do you want? there seems to be an amalgamation of lot of people's desires in your case. Of course I stand by your view that financial independence should be a first priority. Give everything to to your passion and work for it, you will succeed. Do not let the fear of outcome overshadow it. You should know if plan a doesn't work, one should move to. Plan b, plan c. Till one gets what one wants. It is better to take your own decision and fail rather than take someone else's and sulk all life. You should be ready to fail. Fail. And you will never fail eventually. What must happen will happen so just go for it!

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Nervous Breakdown?

MCh - Neurosurgery, MBBS

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Nervous Breakdown?

Nervous Breakdown is not a medical term. It is connected to health problems associated with depression and anxiety. It often results from extreme stress and need medical help to overcome it. Although there are physical and emotional symptoms of this state of being, people often miss it. Here is a list of some common signs and symptoms related to nervous breakdown:

  1. It is hard to concentrate: It is often seen that a person finds it hard to concentrate when he is on the verge of mental breakdown. While a little stress helps in better functioning of the memory, chronic stress can prove to be lethal for the human mind and body. According to a study conducted by the University of Maryland Medical Center, it is found that too much stress results in the secretion of a hormone called cortisol which deteriorates the memory.
  2. Food becomes your best friend: An increased level of stress makes the body release certain hormones such as adrenaline for a flight response. When this hormone wears off, cortisol asks the body to replenish energy from food. This hormonal reaction results in emotional eating. As a result of stress, certain high sugar items such as ice-cream and chocolate give a good feeling to the body. According to a study conducted by the American Psychological Association it was found that 40 percent out of 3000 individual seek pleasure in high fat high sugar items.
  3. An upset stomach: Often before nervous breakdown, many people report symptoms related to IBS. A patient might also go through certain other symptoms such as stomach aches, abdominal pain and diarrhea. These indicators are related to overwhelming stress more often than not. According to a recent study conducted by the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, it is found that more than half the people suffering from IBS have anxiety or depression related disorder.
  4. Slouching becomes your favorite activity: Slouching is a major indicator of stress. A study conducted by the San Francisco State University in 2012 revealed that slouching drains more energy than skipping. Poor posture and depression is a common phenomenon in people suffering from anxiety and stress related disorder. If this is occurring way too frequently, it is time to consult a doctor and get professional help.
  5. A hyperactive nose: People with hypertension, anxiety, depression and stress often find themselves with a hyperactive sense of smell. A study conducted by the University of Wisconsin revealed that when a person is exposed to disturbing images of crashes or accident, he is often found to have a distorted sense of smell. Even neutral smells can be mistaken as foul ones by patients suffering from anxiety. If this sounds familiar, it is time to visit a doctor.

Hello lybrate-user, your body has received a signal or a message that it will sleep at a particular time. Allow your body or discipline it consciously so that you start sleeping early in the night. To help you with sleep try meditation at night. Meditation can help you to promote sound sleep.

Hi lybrate-user, Try the following tips. You have to feel confident and content in yourself to be able to overcome the stress. You are young you will soon form many more meaningful relationships. 1. Break free: The tendency to go back and beg your erstwhile partner to take you back will be overwhelming, but remember that it’s just not worth it if you do so. They broke up with you for a reason, so you must protect yourself from further hurt by staying away from them and breaking free completely. 2. Understand yourself: You will go through periods of intense sadness, anger and denial, and these emotions will make you act out of character; but if you are aware of your Emotions and understand them, it’s easier to control them and prevent them from making you do things you will later regret. 3. Stay busy: The panacea for a broken heart is a busy mind and a tired body; so throw yourself into work even though you don’t really feel like working, and focus all your energy into your professional life. The success you achieve will make you feel much better about yourself, and it signifies the beginning of the healing process – it inspires you to concentrate on work and forget the breakup you’ve just been through. 4. Talk to someone: Crying and talking about emotional pain are the most cathartic ways to get rid of the heavy feeling that plagues your insides, so don’t hold back your tears or zip your lips about your breakup. Call a close friend who you are comfortable with, or talk to a professional psychologist to help you get through the feelings of depression and pain. 5. Don’t rush into another relationship: It’s very easy to succumb to the feeling of wanting to be loved and needed and get into another relationship too quickly and for the wrong Reasons when you’ve just broken up with a significant other. However, this could only make you feel worse, especially if you’re not comfortable with one-night stands or short-term flings. So take stock of your emotional state, and know what you want in the aftermath of a breakup. 6. Don’t seek refuge in alcohol or drugs: It’s tempting to want to drink yourself stupid and forget all that is happening around you, but alcohol makes you do idiotic things you’re bound to regret, and also gives you a major hangover which ruins the next day completely. Also, you run the risk of becoming an addict. If you find trouble sleeping, get an hour or so of exercise to tire you out, or seek out the company of friends and family and spend time with them – alcohol causes more problems than it brings solutions. 7. Take each day at a time: Time is the greatest healer, so don’t look too far ahead into the future and worry about what it holds. Instead, take each day as it comes, and find Something to look forward to in the short term – it could be a vacation you’ve planned with friends, a reunion with family, a promotion at work, or just dinner out at your favorite restaurant. Life is made up of these little moments that add to our wellbeing, not just the larger than life ones that cause both immense happiness and unbearable pain. It’s not easy to get over a broken heart, but if you believe that you are strong enough and keep yourself occupied, time does the rest.

Probably she was emotionally abused by the relatives and she has got hurt deeply. May be she has a different perception about their behaviour and is unable to understand their intentions. You need to talk to a counsellor. It will help you both, individually and you will be able to improve your marital bond.

Dear lybrate user, it appears to me that you did not get enough respect and appreciation from your loved ones while growing up. Presently you are searching for gratification from masturbation. Masturbation is healthy when done to relieve intense sexual urge. But if you are doing this as a habit, then it will be harmful for you. Please contact a counsellor who will help you have higher self esteem and confidence. Once you gain that you will not have social anxiety and depression. You also will be able to better control on your mind. Good luck.

Dear depression needs to be diagnosed by proper face to face methods and assessment tools. Please consult a psychiatrist face to face. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.
