The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

Hello, Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1. Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2. Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3. Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

Depression in Women- Be Aware No Beware!

Depression in Women- Be Aware No Beware!

Mood swings bother you and everyone around you!

Everyone experiences disappointment or sadness in life. When the "down" times last a long time or interfere with your ability to function, you may be suffering from a common medical illness called depression. According to research, women experience twice the rate of depression as men, regardless of race or ethnic background. An estimated 1 in 8 women will face major depression in their lifetimes. Despite high prevalence rates people are reluctant to acknowledge clinical depression as a disorder that should be evaluated and treated.

Researchers suspect that, rather than a single cause, many factors unique to women's lives play a role in developing depression. These factors include - genetic and biological, reproductive, hormonal, abuse and oppression, interpersonal and certain psychological and personality characteristics. However the stages in a woman's life can also subject her to depression- menstruation, pregnancy, child birth and menopause. Given below are some of the signs and symptoms that you may be experiencing related to your life stage.

Premenstrual Dysphonic Disorder - This affects around 3-8% of the women. In this behavioral changes are observed in women 5 days prior to the commencement of their menstrual cycle. The common symptoms are:

  • Lack of interest in common activities, such as hobbies

  • Moderate to severe feelings of tension or anxiety with low energy

  • Mood Swings , such as feeling overly sensitive

  • Moderate to severe feelings of hopelessness or depression, feeling overwhelmed

  • Physical symptoms, such as weight gain, joint or muscle pain, or a headache

  • Changes in sleeping patterns, such as sleeping too much or too little

  • Changes in eating habits or food cravings

  • Problems focusing or concentrating

  • Unusual irritability or anger

Management:  Be calm and relaxed. Keep a check and monitor your cycle and emotional outbursts. If you notice some continuity it's important that you consult a specialist. Ignoring the issues can have an effect on your relationships. Be open and talk to your family and your partner about the same.

Pregnancy and Post Partum Mood Disorders- Pregnancy is a stage in which a woman's body is going through a number of hormonal changes. These changes can have a major effect on the mood and can increase the risk of developing depression. Even post pregnancy the risk doesn't end. The following are a list of symptoms. Be informed if you are pregnant or have just delivered a child.

  • Lifestyle or work changes resulting in relationship problems

  • Episodes of depression and irritability

  • Feeling of lack of social support and lost feeling

  • Mixed feelings about being pregnant

  • Feeling that pregnancy has pulled you down

Please note that a woman can feel depressed during pregnancy and the feeling can become worse post child birth. It affects 10-25% of women in India. It's important to understand that it's not just you but your body that is going through change. Hormonal fluctuations, psychological pressures and social support all attribute to the same. Be open and consult specialists. Also talk to your family and your spouse.

Peri Menopause and Menopause Depression- Risk of depression may increase during the transition to menopause, a stage called Peri menopause, when hormone levels may fluctuate erratically. Depression risk also may rise during early menopause or after menopause - both times when estrogen levels are significantly reduced.

Women need to aware that they are vulnerable to develop depression and need professional help to avoid it from causing personal and functional impairment.

Be informed and consult a Psychiatrist if you are experiencing any of the above.

I used to smoke 2 cigarette per day from last 4 years. From last 1 month I quit it. I have join gym but my stamina is nt enough. Even when I run I get tired within 500 mt and feel like vomiting. I want to increase my strength and stamina. As soon as possible. Can you please help.

It will take some time for stamina and strength to develop. You will need to gradually increase your exercise. When exercising you must preferably choose aerobic exercise and always breathe through your nostrils during exercise. For strength development you will need to do some weight training. If you push yourself too much, you will feel like vomiting. When you wo0rk out you must also do it in a place where the air is clean. Deep breathing techniques may be learne dthrough Yoga too.

Hi Lybrate-user, Exams are one of the main causes for stress. The exam is the trigger but there is an underlying root cause. Medication will help reduce your anxiety and panic but the main reason needs to be understand. I would suggest that you try and get into a workout regime as well. Am happy to hear that you practise meditation and pranayam. Hypnotherapy and psychotherapy is what you would benefit from. Please reach me here and I can help you with the same. Take care. Good luck.

Good​ ​afternoon, As a medication xanax can be useful for quick relief of panic attacks if that is the medical condition you have. However, it usually does not help in performance anxiety which seems to be your case. I believe that you should seek medical help on this website with a second opinion on your medications with an allopathic doctor who specializes in psychiatry. I also believe that you are in need of a psychiatrist who can provide you long term relief which can happen with your condition as there are numerous other medications that exist that treat the condition.
