Hello lybrate-user these r very early aigns of depression. U r anxious about your work. Have a healthy diet. Keep your mind free. Just ignore your work tensions. Have a hobby like basket ball, jogging, music etc, and talk about everything to your family. If you are not happy about your job then quit and take some other job. YOUR HEALTH IS IMPORTANT THAN ANYTHING.

You certainly seem to have problems of yoru own. This does not mean that what your BF did was alright. He seems to do a lot of wrong things and then conveniently blames you for it. This is a lame excuse and does not augur well for your future with him. Also you should never be in a relationship where there is emotional and physical abuse. In accepting it there is something really lacking in you. Perhaps you suffer from a rejection issue and will tolerate a lot of nonsense just to get his love. You will also tend to appease him sometimes and stubbornly do things in such as manner to invite and set up the rejection. You need to work with a counselor to sort these things out. Until then don't get into any relationship and this boy is definitely not the one for you. He lacks respect for you. There may a lot of issues that may come from your family of origin. Meet a counselor soon.

My depression don't end what should I do my mediation daily morning eating -Venlor-xr 75 mg.

My depression don't end what should I do
my mediation daily morning eating -Venlor-xr 75 mg.
Venlor xr 75 mg only in the morning is an inadequate dose. In other words, at the doses you are taking, the medicine will not do the job that it is supposed to. Atleast 150 mg and possibly upto 300 mg will be needed. Please consult your psychiatrist for dose adjustment. Take care!

I have been in depression for two months. There are times that I break down completely and nights I can't sleep and cry all time and sometimes I sleep a lot. When I be with my friends I feel really good but at the end I break down again when am alone. What to do?

You seem to be in a sadness related depression and it is of recent affect. This makes your ability to handle it better and stronger, if you reach out to a counselor soon. It is good you like the company of your friends and can therefore keep in touch with them often and for long durations. In other words, do everything possible in your spare time to be with people. If you are staying with your family, then the other times can be spent with them until you have to sleep. Do not sleep beyond 6.30 am, every day. Get into a healthy routine of exercise, good diet, and proper sleep habits, soon. There is some sadness from your past that is the culprit. Can you identify it? if not, the counselor will help you. Normally, at late adolescence, issues that were not resolved earlier will come for the last time, seeking a resolution. If it is not resolved, like in your case, you could have a permanent negative trait in your personality and it can disturb you enough to depress you. The sadness will naturally precipitate a lot of tears. That too you must do with someone, never alone. In fact your asthma has a good chance that it was also induced by some deep rooted sadness. It makes it really worthwhile to investigate this sad emotion from your past and deal with it soon.

My 20 year old child felt that she was not feeling normal and visited her university counsellor and was diagnosed depression last year .My child after searching the internet feels that she might have borderline personality disorder and her councillor also felt the possibility. And advices her to get it checked from a doc. Is this disorder treatable with counselling or she will need medicine. Should I take her to a psychiatrist or a counsellor. In my city most of the famous psychiatrist have a reputation of only prescribing medicine and ignoring counselling. I cannot find a CBT here who is the next best specialist to consult.

Dear lybrate-user, It is nice of you to treat your daughter properly. Borderline personality disorder predisposes your daughter for depression. Both of them can be in the same person. Your daughter is still only 20 years and her personality is still forming. Now, you have to see that her depression does not affect her studies or future. Any psychiatrist will treat her with antidepressant/mood stabilizer tablets with whatever counselling is required for the treatment of depression. Later if needed, you can send her to a clinical psychologist for therapy of borderline personality disorder. The university counselor or online counselors can also help.

Causes Behind Catatonic Depression!

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Causes Behind Catatonic Depression!

Catatonic depression is a kind of depression which is characterized by prolonged periods of speechlessness and motionlessness. It is described as a state of mind that is caused by neurogenic and motor inabilities caused due to dysfunction of various neurotransmitters like glutamate and dopamine. People who suffer from a severe case of this condition, even have difficulty in performing simple regular tasks. For example, the act of eating breakfast may take a span of hours.

Some of the common symptoms of this condition are:

- Feelings of sadness
- A change in appetite causing gain or loss of weight
- Difficulty in concentrating and thinking
- Feelings of restlessness, worthlessness, and guilt
- Fatigue
- Irritability
- A loss of interest in any activity
- Trouble sleeping
- Attempts at suicide
- Cynicism and negativism
- Agitation
- Unusual and abnormal movements
- An inability to move and difficulty in speaking
- A refusal to eat or drink due to extreme anxiety

The major causes of catatonic depression are:

1. Abnormal neurotransmitter production - Irregularities in the production of neurotransmitters are believed to be one of the major causative factors of this type of depression. These neurotransmitters present in the brain help cells to communicate with each other. Serotonin and norepinephrine are the neurotransmitters which are mostly associated with this type of depression.

2. Dopamine irregularities - Another reason for this condition is believed to be the irregularities in dopamine, glutamate, and gamma-aminobutyric acid neurotransmitter systems. Underlying neurological, physical, psychiatric or psychological conditions are accompanying issues.

Administering antidepressants or using electroconvulsive therapy are some of the known ways of treatment which have proved effective for getting relief from catatonic depression. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Hello lybrate-user, in all probability these bodily sysmtoms described by you are because of some lifestyle problems. I notice your weight is little on the higher side for your age and height. Kindly get a full body check up done at a good hospital. After doing a full body check-up your doctor would advise you on next steps. Don't worry, your problem can be overcome.
