No one is worth dying for, period. Your life is in your hands and it is very precious. Good friendships should bring out the best in you. If this girl has moved on for some reason, you must learn to accept it gracefully. True intimacy is all about being comfortable when that person is both close to you and as well as when she moves away. This is the difference between attachment and bonding: the former can be made with anybody and anything too - it is typically based on insecurity and your behavior will be clingy. Whereas bonding is based on security and it can be made only with a human being, which is normally with the mother, primarily. You may have suffered problems of attachment with your mother and so will find it difficult to bond. Please work with a counselor to resolve that and then you will feel better. Leave this girl alone and learn if there was anything you did to push her away, like clingy behavior. Then change that and you will make good rapport with people.

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 lybrate user...Its very painful to leave any form of addiction. You may be feeling an empty space created in your life by not having cigarette smoking anymore. Craving for cigarettes may also be severe and painful. People may suffer many kinds of bodily symptoms including the ones you have mentioned after they stop any addiction. I would suggest you medication help to decrease the body pain, craving for cigarette and other somatic complaints you are having. Get in touch

Hello lybrate-user. Clonazepam is not the solution for anxiety and depression. It only provides temporary relief that too for short span of time after which it is inefficient. You need to find the problem that causes anxiety and try to solve it.

I am 21 years old and I have started losing my memory. I forget things quickly and have weak concentration power. Please help me.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Whenever you want to discontinue medication, have a consultation with your treating doctor who knows all your records. It is not gonna give you big deal, when discontinuing, the symptoms which settled with that 15 days of duration restarts again and continuing medications further will take longer time for the symptoms to get settled. Do not forget to have opinion from your treating doctor.

Sir I am 25 years old .six months I am feeling depress and mental disorder please Suggest.
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 General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out. Consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

When I saw movies or incidents then when I am free or sleeping those scenes came in to my mind I am not able to concentrate on any work.

Hi lybrate-user! Actually not only you at least 40% of individuals experience the same problem no matter boy or girl. Your age also matters you are just 18 right. I do not know whether you have gone to movies with your family or only now you are going. Okay nothing to worry, you need to actually watch pleasant movies not aggressive or violent ones, bcoz only unpleasant thoughts more to you. You have a soft heart and that is the reason of this problem. After one action or job is over you have to switch over to next. No problem if only you can control your mind everything is going to be okay. You need to attend yoga or meditation classes. If you need to consult me you can. Take care.

My younger brother has always saying that someone is tracking me. Is this caused by depression.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry

My younger brother has always saying that someone is tracking me. Is this caused by depression.
Feeling that" someone is tacking me" could be a kind of suspicion that someone is against him and trying to harm him. The level of suspicion along with any other forms of symptoms may help in clinching the diagnosis. This does not seem to be classically a symptom of depression.

I live in hostel. I don't have a single friend neither in college nor in hostel. Due to this I feel so alone. I go anywhere whether for shopping or even for any meal in restaurant alone. Everybody is just staring on me that I always come alone and I don't have any friend. I don't know how to talk to people and make friends. I don't have any topic to conversation with anyone .if sometime I have others will not take it any interest and don't give any attention to it. I am just fed up to sit alone and not expel even a single word from my mouth. Due to this my juniors are also respect me. N I feel so inferior. My confidence also become very low. I don't want to go college due to this. My study is suffering. No outings. Just be in room. My life is totally shattered. What to do. I don't know.

To really understand your problem in its totality, is to go back home to your family of origin to trace some of the genesis of your problems. You may ignore all my assessments for want of complete evidence, and that is okay. I am not the world’s perfect diagnostic man, nor do I boast of knowing it all. So feel free to take what appeals and dump the rest in the garbage can. In my opinion, I think that your problem lies in the fear of rejection. This rejection is usually founded in your family of origin, and is somewhat manifest in some descriptions you have given already. This is not to find fault in your parents: they may have done a lot of things with good intentions but may have inadvertently set up rejection. If you go way back, and see if there was any rejection prenatally or postnatally (again all this with intention or without), the child will pick up the sensation or feel like she is not wanted or even rejected. As you can see, I am presuming all this. You will have to give it substance, if you so have the substance. Without reaching to any conclusions, just indulge in this thought to see if there is any semblance of truth to explore it further. Your parents may throw light on this but don’t share too much of what I saying until it has been verified. Also find out, if there was an abortion or miscarriage before or after you were born. Whether you were wanted by both parents at birth. Whether they expected a male child and were disappointed that you were a girl. How long were you breast-fed by mom etc? These will all throw some light on my proposal of rejection, if there is any truth. Find out why people are neglecting you. Are you doing something to cause this? There must be a way you behave or present yourself that they are choosing to neglect you. Once you have identified that, change that behavior in you. Before you do so ask yourself, do you love yourself first of all? I suspect that there may be a problem of self-acceptance and self-love. If you don’t love yourself, then you may depend on others too much for the love you need. Inevitably, they will reject you or at least neglect you. You could be suffering from the rejection issue from which all these outcomes will be activated. This is how social priorities are normally set: first you love god, then yourself sufficiently, and then others. If you are full of appropriate love, you will attract others’ love by default. As easy as that!!! Get the help of a counselor too.
