A person did wrong to me which has totally affected my mind and I feel depressed. I just cannot tolerate her face and it feels like to go and kill her. Whatever she did has hurt me emotionally and mentally . Every time I keep thinking about all this which has me a lot and I cry very often. I want to get over this feeling and don't want to feel anything for her.What shall I do?

Life is so much more complicated than we want it to be. It's very natural for you to feel vengeful. However, you'll only be hurting yourself because you are wasting your precious emotions on something that is not worth it. Please talk to a psychologist about how you can come to terms with your unfortunate situation.

My daughter who's age is 13 now. Monthly once she got depressed. For the past two month only we find that. She often says that I am unfit for everything. She told that I cannot lead life. But she is very intelligent and first rank holder in a reputed school. Now a days telling I like to die. I consult a psychiatrist here.

Quetiapine and fluoxetine are safer psychoactive drugs. But no drug is free from side-effects. Dizziness, headache, constipation and tiredness are some of the common side effects of these two drugs. They are good in treating psychiatric conditions like your daughter's. You are on the right track in treating her by a psychiatrist. But, the causes of the problem may be 1. Biochemical changes (abnormal or subnormal levels of neurotransmitters in the brain). 2. There may be any underlying traumatic incidences which might have affected her mental health. 3. There may be the influence of hormonal surges since 13 is the age of puberty, which may cause mood disorders in some girls. And it resolves its own accord in months or a year. 4. Or a mix of all these thigs. Your psychiatist knows well all these issues. I think, along with medications some psychotherapies/counselling techniques will help a quick recovery.

A Wise Decision:  Seeking Professional Help, Before It Is Late

Seeking Professional Help, Before It Is Late

Depression and anxiety are affecting millions, all over the world and the phrase ‘pull yourself together” is still at play in INDIA. There is a huge social stigma, and a sense of shame about what others in the community might think about visiting a professional, which now needs to be corrected.
Research shows that Psychotherapy and counselling sessions are the most effective treatments to cure all psychological problems. These sessions not only help individuals to cope with daily problems, but also teaches them the skills and strategies to deal with them more effectively and make oneself emotionally and mentally empowered.

With Psychotherapy and counseling, you’ll learn more effective ways to deal with problems. gradually, you would develop certain problem-solving skills, coping mechanisms and better perception for overall growth.

A lot of people do not seek help and suffer internally because visiting psychologist/ psychiatrist is considered taboo in Indian society, leading to increased mental health problems. Most of the people avoid sharing personal problems and issues, as that might expose them as being weak.

The ideal solution for someone who is depressed, anxious and facing problems at work or in personal life, is seeking a professional help of psychologist/ psychiatrist. However, most people are not aware of the difference between a psychologist and a psychiatrist and hence are not sure whom to refer.

Let’s find out the difference between the both:

While psychologists and psychiatrists both conduct psychotherapy and research, there are many significant differences between the two professions,which we will list in our separate blog but, one very important distinction between the two is , that psychiatrists can prescribe medications, while psychologists cannot. However, there has been a recent push to grant prescribing powers to psychologist. psychologist deal with therapies, counseling, and building healthy perception towards life. even in cases where medication is required, psychiatrist may refer the client to psychologist further, for complementing the treatment with medicines.

The next time you feel depressed, anxious or need help dealing with overwhelming social situations or difficult times, make a smart choice, consider professional help and feel safe visiting a psychologist/ psychiatrist. In INDIA, with increase awareness and education, people are outgrowing
this stigma and consider it a wise step to go ahead and take initiative toward better life.

Psychological counseling is a tool that creates success, it’s something everybody would need in their life. At each developmental stage, a person needs guidance and awareness as how to adjust with new roles and be successful. Hence, considering counselling and psychotherapy to deal with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, is a wise move.
Take that one courageous step towards life.

O I am too much depressed so kindly help me sort my problem I shall be very thankfully.

O I am too much depressed so kindly help me sort my problem I shall be very thankfully.
Hi, I understand your situation. I would like to know about the stress in your life in detail. whether something is making depression worse or is causing the depression. eat healthy: Don’t skip meals. Going too long between meals can make you feel irritable and tired, so aim to eat something at least every three to four hours. Minimize sugar and refined carbs. You may crave sugary snacks, baked goods, or comfort foods such as pasta or French fries, but these “feel-good” foods quickly lead to a crash in mood and energy. Focus on complex carbohydrates. Foods such as baked potatoes, whole-wheat pasta, oatmeal, and whole grain breads can boost serotonin levels without a crash. Boost your B vitamins. Deficiencies in B vitamins such as folic acid and B-12 can trigger depression. To get more, take a B-complex vitamin supplement or eat more citrus fruit, leafy greens, beans, chicken, and eggs. 2)Push yourself to do things, even when you don’t feel like it. You might be surprised at how much better you feel once you’re out in the world. Even if your depression doesn’t lift immediately, you’ll gradually feel more upbeat and energetic as you make time for fun activities. 3) Practice relaxation techniques. A daily relaxation practice can help relieve symptoms of depression, reduce stress, and boost feelings of joy and well-being. Try yoga, deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, or meditation. For any problem in your life which is causing stress. consult me. Don't worry you will be better. After analyzing the severity of your depression or situation, it can be clearer if you need medication or not.

Anxiety is a very normal emotion, which gives rise to feelings of nervousness every now and then. An anxiety disorder is a serious medical condition in which people experience a high degree of distress and mental trauma, which causes difficulties in leading a normal life. People suffering from this medical condition experience high levels of anxiety and nervousness almost all the time. Here are the symptoms that indicate you're suffering from anxiety disorder. 1. Excessive worry - This condition persists if you worry about the day to day activities a bit too much on a regular basis. It is identified when you start taking too much stress about very petty things, which tends to affect you in an adverse manner. A noticeable sign of excessive worry can be too much fatigue. 2. Sleep problems - Problems falling asleep at the right time and problems in maintaining a sound sleep are two signs that indicate you have an anxiety disorder. 3. Irrational fears - This symptom is not generalized; instead, it is specific and subjective in relation to a particular thing or situation. The fears that are experienced under this category are sudden and unexpected in nature and there is no fixed rationale behind these fears. 4. Muscle tension - Muscle discomfort and pain is one of the leading physiological causes of an anxiety disorder. The pain felt is chronic and pervasive, and is very common among people facing situations of anxiety. If you are exposed to constant periods of anxiety, you will experience fatigue, muscle pains and unwillingness to work. 5. Chronic indigestion - Problems related to the digestive system are also a sign of anxiety disorder. In this case, you may face constant digestive problems accompanied by a common disorder called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). IBS refers to an anxiety situation in the digestive tract, which is characterized by stomach aches, cramping, bloating, gas, constipation, and/or diarrhea. Apart from the above-mentioned symptoms, other symptoms of an anxiety disorder include stage fright, self- consciousness, panic attacks, memory flashbacks, perfectionism, compulsive behaviors, self- doubt, and such others. But id you have serious problem you may see a psychiatrist and discuss.

Hello doctor, my husband is 44 years old. He is an alcoholic. I wanted to stop his this bad habit. But he does not believe that he is alcoholic nor interested visiting anti alcoholic center. Now a days, for no reason he is showing his anger on everyone i.e me, kids, road side passers by. Using abusing languages, yelling / shouting for no reasons. Please help me out with some medicine so that, he unknowingly stops his drinking habit.

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
The elements of treatment appropriate for patients with severe alcohol problems are fairly straightforward. The core of these efforts involves steps to maximize motivation for abstinence, helping alcoholics to restructure their lives without alcohol, and taking steps to minimize a return, or relapse, to substance-using behaviors. Intervention The goal in this step is to break through feelings of denial and to help the patient recognize the adverse consequences likely to occur if the disorder is not treated. Reaching out to the Family The family can be of great help in the intervention. Detoxification Most people with alcohol dependence have relatively mild symptoms when they stop drinking Mild or Moderate Withdrawal--can be managed by giving medicine for 3 to 5days. Severe Withdrawal --in hospital. Rehabilitation For most patients, rehabilitation includes three major components: (1) continued efforts to increase and maintain high levels of motivation for abstinence, (2) work to help the patient readjust to a lifestyle free of alcohol, and (3) relapse prevention. if any further details are required Let me know.

I hope you are taking these tablets after consulting a psychiatrist. If not please consult a psychiatrist and follow his advice. Some medicines may have some side effects, and the headache and the feeling of current passing through your nerves might be the side effects of the tablets. Please discuss this with your doctor who might change your medication. But please do not start or stop medicines on your own, it will be harmful for you. There are a number of causes for depression and the severity of depressive mood also differs from person to person. I think, along with the medication, counselling and psychotherapy would be of great help to you. The counsellor can help you to understand your own behavior patterns and thought processes and help you to modify the same. There might be some heredity of depression, you might be having some suppressed emotions or unresolved issues of the past, which might be affecting your mind now. The counsellor can help you to identify and manage such emotions and will help you to move on with life and enjoy life. Take care.

Dear. Please understand, alcohol is poison. Your liver takes care of the alcohol by disintegrating it. After the process your body gets the good portion of alcohol and liver consumes the bad portion. That means, to save you, your liver damages itself. No food or drink is enough to reduce the damage done by alcohol. Quit alcohol. Take care.

My friend is 48 yrs old extremely intelligent and successful business man. He always had the habit of worrying too much. Lately he started hearing voices. He went to ENT and was told he is suffering from SCHIZOPHRENIA. He is absolutely normal a. Earlier he was a very optimistic person nowadays he has become pessimistic. This is the only apparent change in him. Can his situation worsen if untreated. What is the course of action to be taken. As a friend how can I support him.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Your friend appears to be having psychosis and he needs a detailed psychiatric evaluation. Schizophrenia is a possibility, but other disorders which may cause hearing of voices (hallucinations) need to be assessed as well. During this period, it is very important to give him a good patient listening, a family member/close friend should accompany him to a psychiatrist for evaluation asap and we should ensure that he takes treatment (medicines and counselling) regularly and someone should be with him most of the time for the first 2-3 weeks.

Your prescription needs revision, consult a psychiatrist and get the best medicine which helps to control the symptoms and does not produce any unpleasant effects. But give your psychiatrist few reviews to get the right one as different people respond differently. Also your need to wait for 1-3 months for significant improvement. All the best.

I am 19 and i'm studying. I am in a love relation last year and that existed only 6 months. The girl said that she cannot accept me as her lover. She said that i am only a friend to her. But till now i am not able to forget the girl I loved. Please help. Me. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you had broken up and you are still thinking about her, it only means that you loved this girl very much. Since she was the one to break up with her, you must accept this wish of hers and move on. The clock cannot be turned back again, I suppose. You might have probably entered into a symbiosis and her leaving has become too difficult. That itself might be the reason for the breakup. Girls want a relationship where independence is respected and there is no clingy behavior. You have got to look into this aspect of your personality. Are you becoming too dependent on the girl and therefore demanding? This is not a welcome feature for a girl to want to maintain this relationship. You must develop yourself to become independent and responsible. Maintain respectful distance. There are three important developments in an individual that creates an autonomous personality: intimacy, awareness, and spontaneity. Of these, awareness is of great importance: it will help you know yourself internally and to also make you conscious of other people around you. Such a person is able to meet his needs and that of the other in a balanced manner. You must learn to do this soon. You are still young and have a lot to learn. In fact when you are in a college, you will meet many girls and will interact with them. If you resolve the symbiosis, you will do really well. Meet with a counselor and describe your longings, needs and wants, openly. Take your parents along and let them describe your entire life till now and the counselor will get an understanding of your plight. Remove everything that is a reminder of this girl and start working on your development. Demonstrate how you will look after yourself and work on doing that. Learn independence skills and do a personality development course too.

Dear , I think your concept of learning is wrong. Let me explain you. Human being brain is able to store anything it sees or learns. Storage of data is always taking place. The more you learn, the data will be kept in some cells which are readily accessible. Our brain never deletes any file. There is of course over writing. Your problem could be recollection. This recollection matter will be only visible in education. The initial things you need to grasp what you read is' interest' in the subject and interest in your life. You need to understand the importance of education, approach it with enthusiasm and passion. You should recall, how you approach a game. You will be able to understand better and effectively if your approach is positive, enthusiastic and passionate.'effective learning methods' should help you. You may post a private question to me and I am happy to help you in all the way I can. Take care.

Hi, I have a question, I think a friend of mine is going through depression. The cause for the same is she takes all the things negative on herself. This she is doing for years but never reflected but now this since she is thinking that nothing is happening as she wants, this negative behavior is reflected in her talks. I think this is a kind of depression only. Kindly let me know if this is a depression or only a behavior which will get resolved when the things get in her favor.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Right now there are no signs of depression but over time she can develop it. To me she is sounding pessimistic and it may be because of the reason you mention. She should ideally examine herself and see why she is experiencing so many failures in life. How much is she the cause? Very often we precipitate negative happenings towards us by certain factors in our self. If she is suffering from a rejection issue from some events in childhood, she could be living and sending out signals to attract the same. Kindly get in touch with me for some literature on this that could help her get out of the failure mode and shift to the success mode. With so many failures I myself will be affected. But if she can prevent the failures by certain adaptations, she could turn the events in her life to great levels of achievement.
