Consult a psychiatrist and discuss your concerns with him. Your psychiatrist may suggest either increasing the dose or changing the medicine or adding another medicine to overcome your depression. He may also discuss with you the option of shock treatment. Many options are available to overcome depression. Do not make any hasty decisions.

He has a fixation with his mom that he needs to grow out of. All children have a phase when they want to marry their mother or father depending on the sex of the child. This is quite normal but then the child has to resolve this attraction and learn that this is normal but it is there to help him find a sexual resolution. He will, in normal circumstances, accept his sexuality and resolve the sexual identity according to how well his mother has accepted him and helped him understand (not in so many words) that she is his mother and his father's wife, period. When this is done properly and often quite naturally, he will move on. So talk to him and explain that he is fixated in a childlike state and needs to happily move on. He has to find his attraction in other girls that he meets and cultivate a good relationship with them and know that those are his peers from which he will choose a partner in life. If he is not receptive to you, then take him to a counselor.

Dear sir/madam , I am so addicted to cigarette as my cigarette stick counts from min 10 to 20 or even 30 per day. Smoking is deeply rooted into my behavior. It will be great if you advice the way to leave it in a proper way as sudden leaving makes my life imbalance.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Cigarette contains more than 4000+ chemicals which can cause many physical and mental problems. Nicotine is addictive and causes addiction. Smoking can cause cancer and other physical problems. The best method to quit smoking is to use your will power and sustain it with your will power. There are other methods like deaddiction therapy. I suggest online counseling and deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. Do not worry too much follow these simple steps to ensure a good sleep every night and stay away from sleep disorders and other health problems associated with unhealthy sleep habits: 1) maintain a regular sleep routine go to bed at the same time. Wake up at the same time. Ideally, your schedule will remain the same (+/- 20 minutes) every night of the week. A good sleep hygiene routine promotes healthy sleep and daytime alertness. 2) avoid sleeping during the daytime. It can disturb the normal pattern. 3) avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol near bedtime. While alcohol may speed the onset of sleep, it creates problems in he second half of sleep. 4) exercise can promote good sleep. Exercise should be taken in the morning or late afternoon. Yoga, can be done before bed to help. 5) have a quiet, comfortable bedroom. Set your bedroom thermostat at a comfortable temperature. Generally, a little cooler is better than a little warmer. Turn off the tv and other extraneous noise that may disrupt sleep. Background'white noise' like a fan is ok. If your pets awaken you, keep them outside the bedroom. Your bedroom should be dark. Turn off bright lights. Have a comfortable mattress. 6) avoid heavy meals close to bedtime. 7) ensure adequate exposure to natural light. 8) avoid emotionally upsetting conversations and activities before trying to go to sleep. Do not think of, or bring your problems to bed. 9) stop using all your digital devices and stop looking at digital screens be it mobile phones or televisions at least 1 hour before the time you plan to sleep. Instead try reading a fiction book near bedtime so it makes you help relaxed and de-stressed. Sleep well live healthy and live longer.

You might need a psychiatric evaluation of your condition. To avoid loneliness you can start by judging people lesser and making friends with them. Keep in mind that there will be some differences of opinion because everyone thinks very differently. Have tolerance and understanding for your loved ones. You can also talk about commonly spoken topics like weather sports cars studies children food etc. These topics are safe and not controversial if you play your cards properly. Participate in community activities and clubs. Visit public parks and smile and greet people and make small talk. This will make you more popular and approachable and people may want to become your friends. Invite people to your house over meals as it helps strengthen relationships.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. You should understand your boyfriend first. You are just 18. The more you get emotionally involved in relationship, the more you are going to be disturbed in all other activities. Keep your self emotionally away from him. He is he and he has his own personality. If he is unable to understand your emotions now, no problem, we will correct him after the course. Take care.

I am gurdas singh age 46 my problems is depression thinking, afraiding and angry some other problems.
You are into an anger-related depression and may employ some of the suggestions recommended: You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.
