Dear, you are disappointed. Disappointment sometimes gives you symptoms like depression. Everything in your life will change. You will also change one day or other. Nothing is immortal. You just can't say, you cannot live without your ex-girl friend. You will live without her. So don't be so adamant. Be elastic. That is the solution. Take care.

What precautions are taken to remove depression, how to develop self confidence to get good job?
Depression is just like any other illness. It cannot be removed once you are suffering from it. It has to be treated with medications and counselling. Do not label yourself as suffering from depression before consulting a psychiatrist. In order to prevent depression should develop healthier ways of dealing with daily stress and factors that may precipitate depression. For more queries or doubts consult online. Take care.

If you further suppress and not accept your sexual feelings, you will not be able to go anywhere. The fact is that sex is boiling inside you! accept it and the intensity will gradually lessen in intensity. It needs a release. Through active sex or masturbation. If sex comes to its proper place, it will not haunt you the entire day. Consider it as just another activty and not" the activity" get rid of guilt, regret. Its just your high testosterone (may be higher than average) secretion.

Root cause of all addiction is some emotional trauma. Homoeopathic medicines have great role to overcome emotional deficit. So of course homoeopathic med can help to overcome from drug dependence. There are so many medicines like, belladona, stramonium, opium, hyosyamus etc. Correct medicine can be given after consultation.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Do not take medicines based on the past prescription. Consult a clinical psychologist to evaluate the intensity of ocd and whether the condition can be managed by psychological therapies. If not consult a psychiatrist for medical intervention.

He is having asthma problem and also he smokes regularly. How can we make him stop smoking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This person can ill-afford to smoke along with an asthma problem. He must seriously take a call and quit smoking now. Here? s how he can go about it: the habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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. 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Ocd changing to schizophrenia is rare. What you can do best is since you are aware of schizophrenia, you can keep a watch. If you feel like having any of the symptoms you can vouch for help. You do not need to fear at all.

I am ca student. I am 23 years old. From the last 2-3 years, I have noticed a great decline in memory, which is creating problems in my daily life. I used to forgot little things from childhood itself but that didn't use to bother me. Now this is making me feel inferior. Another issue is that it takes me a little more time to recall things (like when someone asks me something, it takes a second or two to reply). What could be the problem with me & any possible solution?

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are 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. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Sizodon ls is not a antidepressant medication, it s an antipsychotic. Your daughter must be suffering from psychosis, if the psychiatrist has prescribed this. If for past 1 year there is no recovery, you need to get a 2nd opinion. Since sizodon make the person drowsy, whether it is chronic schizophrenia, or something else.

Depression for years suggests that it might be of a relapsing nature. The fact that you improve with medications is good. All you need is to maintain the improvement with a small maintenance dose if required and counseling. There is no permanent solution to any disease be it depression or infectious disease. Just as you can have malaria by getting infection you are prone for getting depression. The best possible solution would be to make yourself able and strong enough to deal with depression, medicines only help you do that. Consult online fir any further queries or assistance.
