Hello lybrate user. Not feeling fresh after getting up from sleep, feeling less energetic and tiredness throughout the day may normally be present if they are occasional once a while in a person's life. But if this is the story which is being repeated almost everyday for atleast 2 weeks or more than it needs a close evaluation. At your age having persistent pervasive low mood and lack of interest, lack of concentration, forgetting things, lack of concentration, constant tiredness with having headache or head heaviness may be signs of depression. Other thing which we neet to rule out here is any organic cause for the symptoms. So I suggest you to get your thyroid function test, hemogram and mri brain done. You need to get evaluated closely by a psychiatrist and if there are other signs of depression present you may be started on anti-depressants with expecting good amount of improvement in a month of start of medications. Hoping the best for you. Take care.

I feel really depressed about every small thing and have been prone to crying for every little thing that goes wrong. I do not feel right about anything and can not sleep either. Whenever I sleep I sometimes loose my breath and sometimes experience voices behind me. I can not make decisions properly and i'm able to concentrate or understand anything. What is happening to me?

You need to consult any professional for proper diagnosis and reason of your problem.in the meantime you can try few things which will help you. Take proper sleep of 7-8 hours try to avoid sleep at day time. Its in our hand to be happy what it requires is slightly change in your approach ,stop thinking that something is wrong with me I am not well make yourself as much busy as you can so that you don't get time to think on all this. And its everyone's right is to be happy we cannot change the thinking of people or situation around us but we can get the things or reasons which make us happy, what we can do is to live every second of life, what do you want to be, what do you want to eat, to do, your career, your friends, your likings etc. Develop some hobby, make some good friends, make yourself busy, as much you will think you will get frustrate and will gain nothing, live only for yourself, and this can be possible when you will involve yourself in some other things ,the main concept is that make yourself as much busy as you can so that you don't get free time to think on this. First start from joining any hobby class and make any good friend with whom you can share everything ,do some yoga and meditation, expand your social circle. Take care.

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.

You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But dont be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I dont know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. 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 gums and 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. Heres 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.

Dear friend getting married and moving to a big city like mumbai in it self is a huge change a d chllenge. What yiu are feeling is ina way very common feeling among young women after 18 to 24 months of marriage. The money moon period in marriage ends around this time. Now you both settle in your after marriage life and the reality sinks in. The happily everafter feeling also starts fading a little bit. Now yoh start seeing your spouses limitations and weaknesses also. Overall this is a stressful time. On a brighter side. Now you both are comfortable leaving woth each other and open to expose yourself as it is to another one. This is from where the true journey of happily ever after begins. Understanding how you both are different. Not only as an individual bit there are else some differences in your gender. Helping and supporting each other while you express how you feel and what are your needs and how could the other support you in filling the same woukd go a long way. I would suggest you to take charge of your life. Think what makes you happy. What you enjoy doing that bring joy and satisfaction in your day. One baby step each day would help you chart a new path and better future togather as a psychologist and life coach I have been trained to help and guide individuals through this journey I do offer weekly sessions for 3 months to 6 months where we work togather you bring about concrete changes on your life.

Marital Problems

Multi Speciality Clinic
Multi Speciality, Pune
Marital Problems

While you took vows of sticking to each other through thick and thin you surely hadn't thought of the extremes of bitterness a marriage could entail. The fundamental flaw is perhaps in treating a marriage as a sanctified institution instead of a genuine relationship requiring patience, care, and understanding. The minute you start taking your partner for granted your marriage moves an inch closer to failure. Respect is a key ingredient in love; try to identify if you are losing respect for your partner. Dejection could be the general response to a continued stretch of quarrels. Take out time to sit down and situate marital problems in order to bridge the gap between two souls.

Power politics: Individual mindset decides the course of your marriage. Many people bask in the idea of equality, but never quite feel free to practice the same. Men or women should be comfortable in letting the other person share responsibilities. Nobody should dictate his or her partner in mutual or personal matters. Suggestion, discussions and disagreements as well can work for the betterment of your marriage. It is wrong to assume power in any relationship.

Never sacrifice your career: Fights and quarrels could result from your negligence towards yourself. You could be so interested in appeasing your partner that you give up on your career. In such a situation your partner might lose respect for you or might find you overbearing.

Procreation: Marital problems could arise from differences in opinion regarding procreation. One of the two individuals might want a child while the other person might not be ready for it as yet. A partner can also not want to procreate ever. If a married couple already has children, they may fight over them too. Many people find it difficult to accept their partner's take on issues related to the child.

Domestic issues: Domestic partnership can affect your marriage greatly. Problems start arising when two people, however close, start sharing the same space. There could be conflicts regarding cleanliness or kitchen work. It is necessary that you act sensible and never burden your partner with all the housework.

Banal sex life: It may happen that boredom overshadows your sex life. The reason behind frequent quarrels can be a lack of sex or infrequent sex. Reach out to your partner to know his or her desires while communicating yours too.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You smoke one cigarette every two hours and some beedis too. I am glad you want to stop. I don? t know how long you have been smoking but it is time to quit. The best way is to find out about the harmful effects of smoking and tobacco. The knowledge itself helps keep the intention to stop active. But as you know that is not enough but it does have a telling effect. I remember that in the early nineties, we knew that smoking was reducing by 1% annually in the west while it was growing by 2% in india, all because of the awareness created by various agencies in the developed countries. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you stay out of it. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. And one of its effects is to affect the erectile capacity of your penis. There are more than 4000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke! then you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start 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, for a little while. You may 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 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.

Usually when people have good improvement, I ask them to consult once in 3 months for follow up. There are psychiatrist who consult online and in person for 300 rupees, and there r medications which can maintain anxiety-depression for rs 1 or 2. Usually psychiatrist treat taking the financial situation of the patient. Rather than shifting to alternate medicine you try these alternatives. In government hospitals also effective medicines r there at very low cost at times free and the consultation is totally free. All the best.

If you want to accept her, accept her completely then there should be no room of how she has been in those 5 years. Apart from that you need to trust her to build your relationship again, otherwise just let it go because this doubt may always be there and may lead to unhealthy relationship.
