How to know if I am suffering from depression or not? I cry without any reason. Feel upset. I feel I have committed a unforgivable mistake. I feel so lonely. I don't feel like talking to anyone. Get irritated soon. Want to sleep always. Are these the symptoms of depression?

Dear lybrate-user You need to have these symptoms for at least two or more weeks for you to assume that you might be in depression. And it's okay, do not panic. Everyone goes through such phases in their lives some or the other time. You are brave that you have decided to interrogate with your mental health. Kudos to you for that. You cannot have it all together all the time. Now why don't you try the few things I would suggest you. Right? 1. Look for the reason/s that is making you go through these emotions. Like if there is any particular event that happened in your life that made you this way. And when you find it out, just jolt down solutions for the issue on your own. If no major life event has happened, this all could be due to hormonal imbalance. Females often go through mood swings and all. 2. Don't skip meals ever, keep healthy. Make a healthy diet chart and follow it. Eat good, feel good. 3. Drink appropriate amount of water. It helps maintaining pH level in body. 4. Watch sunrise and try breathing exercises. 5. Don't watch upsetting movies, videos, serials. Don't listen sad songs. Go for light movies and energetic songs. Try these above solutions and properly. And if you feel you need help, seek proper treatment. Look for motivation therapies. And yes, consider the first point I mentioned. If there isn't any major life event that has affected you this way, consult a proper doctor. You should really take care of yourself. I hope this would be useful for you.

I have lost few kilos and take antipsychotic drugs for anxiety and depression over the years. Please advice. Till now I have a sound heart but the heart rate is little on the higher side due to anxiety sometimes. Please also inform me about the chances of heart failure for persons with fluctuating bp.

Your blood pressure is having normal variations within the normal range and you should continue your blood pressure medication because of which your blood pressure is still within the normal range. Normal range of blood pressure is between 90/60 to 140/90. As far as your heartbeat is concerned I need to understand concepts Palpitations are feelings or sensations that your heart is pounding or racing. They can be felt in your chest, throat, or neck. You may Have an unpleasant awareness of your own heartbeat or may Feel like your heart skipped or stopped beats The heart's rhythm may be normal or abnormal when you have palpitations. Normally the heart beats 60 to 100 times per minute. The rate may drop below 60 beats per minute in people who exercise routinely or take medicines that slow the heart. If your heart rate is fast (over 100 beats per minute), this is called tachycardia. A heart rate slower than 60 is called bradycardia. An occasional extra heartbeat is known as extrasystole. Palpitations are not serious most of the time. Sensations representing an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia) may be more serious. You need to get yourself checked what you are having is intermittent tachycardia / arrhythmia which means that intermittently your heart rate increases or the heart Rhythm changes which can be dangerous if it does not get corrected on its own. Or it can be an early sign of impending heart disease. But to diagnose it you need to get an ECG done while you are having the rhythm problem or you can get holter monitoring for 24 hours during which if you have this episode it will get registered and documented. Also you need to get a complete lipid profile done as well as a echocardiogram and blood sugar levels to look for risk factors. Once you have done that you need to Consult a cardiologist with the reports.

How can I control peace of mind .while studying without diverting my mind on other topics.

Dear user, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Hi, There are phases in our life when we go through the worse time! The emotional attachment with a person pulls us towards him or her which can't be avoided, of course, but we can get out of that hard situation when our heart gets broken, when we are left alone. We will have to try ourself to stand upright and walk again! Go for any stress-busters like your hobbies, chatting with your close friends, playing lively music, dancing, singing, etc. Medication: Take Schwabe's Bacopa Monerri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Take them for 2 weeks, then get back to me there after.

By going into depression or by taking anti depresssant medicines will not solve your problem,but you will have to find a solution of your present condition on your own and nobody will help you or guide you,you will have to use your own brain to come out of this depression and my homoeopathic medicines will help you in this direction but I want you only to take help of these medicines for few days and once normal,leave these medicines as I dont want Sudeep to be medicine dependent.Most of the successful people in this world have made their own way in their own terms and conditions but you simply by saying depression seems that You are scared of this world.Dont be scared and come out of your self made web and be a man.You can do what others can do ,you just need motivation and nothing else.work hard on your goals ,only then it will be yours.Sitting idle and giving the name to your scares as depression will end you nowhere but darkness.

You need to meet with a marriage counselor soon and get something done about the situation at home. Life is too precious and no one is worth dying for. I am sure your parents will be shocked at your ideation. They did not bring you up for this outcome. It is better to leave the marriage if there is a threat to yoru life. But you are the threat to your own life, if you are unwilling to take action. If death is an alternative, make sure you have tried all other means even if they bring more misery, make an attempt. In the meantime do the following for your depression: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. 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, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, 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. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.
