Dear lybrate user, I understand that you are in pain. You are feeling very sad and worthless because of the breakup. Please understand that there is only one person on this earth who knows you very well - and that is yourself. If you think you have some weakness or faults then try to improve upon those. But do not let others pull you down. Love means respect. If your bf did not respect you, then that was not love. According to you, he had ego problems which means, for him" he" was the priority all the time. His needs and opinions were important than yours. He did not value you as a person. We human beings, live in a society and have various relations. It is very important to maintain relations with your friends and relatives, irrespective of your intimate relation. Even if you have lost your friends, try to connect with them again, make new friends. If you wish you may open facebook and whatsapp accounts. But instead of connecting with people only virtually, try to make some real connections where you are comfortable being yourself and are able to share your worries and feelings. If you want others to love and respect you, learn to love and respect your own self first. Take charge of your life. Don't depend on others for your happiness. Take care.

Best Homeopathic Remedies For Depression!

Best Homeopathic Remedies For Depression!

Depression is a mental state which is not easily identified in its early stages; it is evident only when the symptoms become obvious. You may overlook it as a passing phase, and assume it to be normal. The people around you may also get used to the symptoms and accommodate accordingly. This can make the identification of depression even more complicated. Homeopathic treatments are entirely natural and do not carry any side effects. They are holistic treatments that get rid of the cause instead of just treating the symptoms of depression. The various homeopathic remedies for depression are:

  1. For anxiety related depression: Aconite is a homeopathic remedy that is used in the treatment of anxiety. The symptoms that it is used to treat are the ones, which occur suddenly and make you extremely pessimistic. For acute panic attacks, this medicine is very effective. Some other medicines that are also used to treat anxiety are Argentum Nitricum and Arsenic album.
  2. For depression in teenagers: Kali phos is a very effective homeopathic remedy for treating depression in teenagers, the causes of which are usually hormonal changes and high levels of stress. In some cases, depression may also be triggered by genetic factors. Ignatia is also used to treat depression in teenagers.
  3. Stress related depression: Kali phos is used to treat stress-related depression. It also helps in treating fatigue with homeopathy.
  4. Insomnia that results from depression: To remedy insomnia resulting from depression, you can opt for Kali Phos and Coffea Cruda.
  5. Severe depression: If the symptoms of depression are very severe and include suicidal tendencies, Aurum Metallicum may be recommended.
  6. Depression resulting from menopause: It is common for a woman to undergo a phase(s) of depression during menopause. The homeopathic remedies that are used in the treatment of this condition are Lachesis and sepia.
  7. Seasonal affective disorder: This type of disorder usually occurs during the winter season. The treatment for this disorder is prescribed after a proper diagnosis of the symptoms. Ignatia is a remedy that is usually recommended.

My father is 53 years old. He is facing an issue of getting unconscious due to which he falls. He is on continuous medications from past 8-9 years. He has gone through so many tests but every report states the result as normal. We are not able to figure out an exact reason due to which he is facing this issue. I would like to have the guidance where to take him for a better treatment and what can be the possible reasons behind such sort of issues.

Dear lybrate-user. Fainting is a sudden loss of consciousness, usually temporary and typically caused by a lack of oxygen in the brain. The brain oxygen deprivation has many possible causes, including hypotension (low blood pressure). But if the doctors could not find any possible reasons for fainting they should have given a reason too. I suggest to consult a neurologist. Take care.

Dear, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

I have seen my love every day but he didn't talk properly so I every day get depressed what I do give me a session.
I think you are pursuing a one-sided relationship. She must also want to talk to you as eagerly as you do. So give her up and go for someone else who is more amenable to your overtures. Sometimes we may choose someone who is beyond our reach and think that just because I like her she should also. That is a fallacy and has driven many a boy crazy. So do review your choice and go to someone who wants you too. Nothing to get depressed about if this relationship was always one-sided.

Hi I am 28 year old male. I am software engineer. I think I am in depression because of my wife behavior. Please help me to save my life…We have been married more than 5 years now. My wife is good, however she is short tempered. Sometime she does’t even hesitate to scream at me or at my parents or at her parents or at our kid even in a party or a public place. I and her parents tried a lot to talk to her but all gone waste. Most of the time, the main reason of her screaming is any external intervention. For example she has her own way to do everything however if you try to show her a better way then she gets angry and it take her almost 2-3 days to behave normal. I really need a practical advice to handle this situation. Some time I am feeling of sadness, lack of concentration, slowness in activity and thought, or thoughts of suicide without any reason.

Let us first deal with problems of your wife. It seems she has anger management problems. It's natural to disagree or get annoyed at somebody's opinion if it gets against our own, but we need to learn to have a balanced response, no matter where we are, alone or in a party. Such uncontrolled anger outbursts can be due to personality problems, hormonal disturbances, mood disorders etc which need treatment with some medications and counseling. She would definitely be much better with treatment. As regards you, if you are bothered by your wife's behaviour for 5 years and feel sad and harming your own self, it means that you have given up on her. Also it seems that your mind is ina helpless situation and you find life worthless. You also need counselling for the same and some medicines to calm your state of mind.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. This is a critical situation. You need both of to be happy. Parents asmwell as your family. For that you need to convince your wife. As a son, you are supposed to look after your parents in their old age. It becomes your duty. You have to categorically tell this to your wife. Use your authority and love to get her agree. You have to be stern in some of your actions. Your wife too should understand relationships. If you can't make her understand, I can do that. Family counselling is effective in such aspects. I suggest online family counselling for both of you. Take care.

Hallucinations - Few Warning Signs You Might be Suffering From!

Hallucinations - Few Warning Signs You Might be Suffering From!

Getting Hallucinations is a mental condition where a person sees, feels, hears, and tastes things that actually don't exist beyond one's heightened imagination or delusion. It involves the experience of perceiving something not present. Hallucinations can be pleasing or frightening. However, there is almost always an identifiable cause behind it.

They can be triggered by:

  1. Taking hallucinogenic or psychotropic substances
  2. Mental conditions like dementia and schizophrenia
  3. Neurological conditions like Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's disease
  4. Macular degeneration, leading to loss of vision
  5. Migraines and brain tumor can also lead to such delusions

Some of the signs of hallucinations:

  • Hearing voices: The medical term for hearing voices is called an 'auditory hallucination'. A person may sense sounds or noises coming from inside or outside of their mind. The noise might be random or disrupting. One might also feel the voices talking to each other or trying to tell them something. Most of the times, these voices come from inside the person's mind; or in some cases, one's heightened perception may make a normal noise delusional.
  • Seeing things: This is also called visual hallucinations. For instance, one may see unnatural things like a floating chair in thin air. It all depends on a person's perception. Sometimes these hallucinations appear as bright flashy spots or rays of light.
  • False sense of taste and smell: Technically these are known as gustatory and olfactory hallucinations respectively. One may feel a kind of odor coming from one's body or surrounding; or a person might feel that something he/she is drinking or eating has an odd taste. This is again heightened mal-perception causing delusional sensory activities.
  • Tactile hallucinations: This is when a person feels things that don't exist. One may feel that he/she is being touched or tickled even when no one else is around or that insects are crawling beneath the skin. One may experience strange sensations, which are not a part of a reality. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurosurgeon.

The multivitamins are good for other reasons but will not have any impact on this condition. You could be depressed. It is very important that you get into a routine by which I mean you need to follow a disciplined lifestyle. Please visit with a counselor first and that person will check how intense your situation is and decide whether you need medication also. Whatever happens, do not discontinue your therapy with the counselor. You must also work on your emotions and learn to express them appropriately. I suspect you have some deep-rooted sadness that needs to be dealt with. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, 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. Get into a healthy routine, and do some fixed activities that are interesting, and involve people in your life every day.

Dear lybrate-user, I understand your concerns. I went through the details. The duty of mind is to think. If you do not provide some creative task to the mind, it will start thinking. And almost always, the thinking is drifted to negative areas. Your obsession wih the movies are the reason for your mind's drifting towards that area. You should stop going for movies so as to stop the fmovie thinking. Secondly you should go for physical exercise and games. You may consult a psychologist for counseling and psychotherapy. I hope this answer satisfies you.. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, You are probably feeling that there is no end to your problems and suicide seems like the only way out, but please understand that suicide is not your way out. There is help available. Please reach out to a psychiatrist and get help. Life is worth living you may not feel so now coz everything thing may seem negative to you but trust me ,hold on you won't regret it. Where ever you are reach out and get help. If you are on medication and it is not helping tell your doctor they can change it. There is a solution to all problems. You are right now only concentrating only on the problem look towards a solution. Try some of the following tips along with medication and it may help Tough times are a part of our life, sometimes we are unable to handle it leading to us becoming slaves to a lot of negativity. There are a few things you can try to  help tide over it. * Firstly stop being in denial   accept the situation stop getting angry and bargaining for something better, accept and tell yourself  I want to face this  and  I will do my best to deal with this.* What next? - calm down, think through and try to figure out what to do next? Start working on a solution for the issue rather than just focusing on the issue. * Solution may not come to you immediately but at least start working towards it one step at a time.  * To find solutions we should put ourselves in a third person perspective. Finding solutions is a lot easier this way. Remember that every problem has a solution. * Get help - do not shove away family, friends or any loved ones who are trying to help you. Seeking help does not make you weak. Try and discuss the issue with them to get an outsiders perspective. Since they are not a part of the problem they will be able to have 360 view of the issue and they may be able to help you better. * Positivity is important - it may seem like a difficult task but try to focus on the positive things happening in your life. Try to surround yourself with positive people, and people who see the good in you. * Don t give up   never give way for negativity to seep into your life. Stop yourself from focusing on negative thoughts and emotions.   Drugs/ alcohol - never look at drugs, alcohol, smoking or abuse of any kind as a solution for your problem, it only gives you a perception that things are fine, but the truth is, it only increases your problem. * No blame game - do not blame yourself or others for the problem. Blaming will not solve your situation. * Stay healthy- do not neglect your health. You need to be there for yourself too. Finally remember this too shall pass.

Hi, if you find yourself very energetic for some period followed by a period of extreme sadness or depression and see this cycle repeating itself, then you could be suffering from bipolar disorder. And if that's the case then do consult a psychiatrist soon as you may need medication treatment. Along with medicines, you will also need to be under counselling. But don't worry, you will be able to manage your mood and get some relief, but it's really important to remain under counselling. Take care.

The symptom forgetfulness is very confusing and tricky. The mind remembers every thing that is interesting. So when you do something (any work) do it with focus and lot of interest. Experiment this and you will be surprised how good is your memory! instead of worrying start practicing and you will gain a lot of confidence.

Dear lybrate user. You are a student. Students need to study and read different books. It becomes your duty. Once you understand your duty, learn to enjoy it, learn to be passionate about it, naturally stress stays away. At the same time, it you take reading as a burden, you feel stressed. You have to use reading techniques which do not give stress to you. I suggest online educational counseling. Take care.

Dear . Body and mind has a capacity. If you force it to go beyond that you are supposed to be stressed. There are occasions where body is trained to take up the stress and work. But that happens for a short time. Best option is to know your stress and adjust with it. Cultivate a passion towards education and work, slowly you won't have mental stress. Take care.
