I am 22 male and I am having more anger and depression plus my health is also not growing up.
Health is not growing up it is psychological feeling. We take food every day. Physiological development grows with out our permission. If you want very go food body. You need to take additional nutrition food. Sympathy about our self is a dangerous thing. Do not feel nervous it may cause your anger. Continuous anger it may cause depression. So do not feel nervous feel always confident. Think always in a positive manner. Develop in your inner strengths that show in your regular work. Prepare well in your studies, develop very good friendly relations with others. Best of luck.

Dear Lybrate User, You are very young and are not sure about what to do with your life. This is quite natural at your age. It appears that you either have low self confidence or anxiety because of which you hesitate to talk to people. Anger is not bad but what makes you angry and how you react when you are angry is to be looked into. You say that the Psychiatrist has informed you that you are in depression, but it seems that he/she has put you on any medication (you have not mentioned it). In this situation, in my opinion, it would be very helpful if you approach a Counsellor. The Counsellor will help you to understand and manage your anger, will help you to reduce your anxiety. The Counselling process will give you more clarity about life and yourself, hence you will be able to chose what you want to do with your life. The Counsellor also will help you in understanding your depression and may refer you for further assessments. Kindly consult a Counsellor as early as possible. Take care.

Hello Lybrate It is a social anxiety which bothers you. The negative thoughts about you that 'I can't talk in front of others','I am not good enough''If people make fun of me' These are some of the thoughts that may defeat you from inside. It is important to realize these negative thoughts from the reality perspective. It helps you to feel good about yourself and bring up your self esteem. All d best.

For Edward syndrome (Trisomy 18) and Patau syndrome (Trisomy 13) there is high risk. Hence you will have to do Amniocentesis to rule out the risk.

OCD can be treated with exposure and response prevention (ERP) if it is mild without depression. SSRI has side effects like every other drug. It needs to be continued for many months, may be two years or so

Sir! I don't feel interest in study. I prepare for civil services examination. I have been facing failure for 5 years consecutively. That's why I have lost my confidence. I don't want to study. Is this symptom of depression?

MD, MBBS
General Physician, Noida
Yes. You have loss of motivation because of repeated failures. You do also have despair. I.e. You have lost hope for success in your subconscious mind. Both lack of motivation & presence of despair have caused loss of interest in studies which further deteriorated your performance on day today basis resulting into a feeling of inability to clear exam even this time eroding your confidence. All these together have resulted into a feeling or state of hopelessness & helplessness which if lasted for longer time results into neurotic or endogenous depression due to permanent changes in receptors of neurotransmitters in brain. Take psychological counseling and psychotherapy for motivation enhancement and removing hopelessness with or without medication.

Sometimes I really feel down and cant get the motivations n to get up and do something. Then when I'm pushed, I react violently and aggressively. But other times, when I'm not under pressure, life is smooth! What should I do with these episodes?

Your aggression in hiding emotions like fear, embarrassment, sadness etc which men can't express in our society openly. In some societies it is acceptable to express aggression rather than weakness. This becomes very pressurising for men especially because our menfolk get implied messages to be strong at all times. You need to realise your limitations too as everyone has limitations including men. Yet, there will be times that you will face challenges which will be beyond your capacities. How can you remain calm, peaceful and in charge of your temper is an art by itself. 1. Learning to say "no" is a big art. Do this assertively and without getting angry. Know and accept your limitations. Share it with others. Help them in a way that is possible for you without stressing yourself. 2. Preempt and prepare yourself for upcoming demands. Knowing the pulse of your family and boss can help you feeling prepared for demands on you. 3. Sharpening your skills of planning, organising, time management. These will help you to feel more in control of yourself and your time. 4. Take out time for yourself. When you are busy taking care of others needs, you need to take care of your own body and mind. Relax, relax, relax.Do what you like in this time. Pamper yourself.You deserve it. Also remember that showing aggression and violence is an anti social behaviour. It separates people emotionally even though they live with you. Learn to respect yourself and them too. A counsellor will be able to help you learn skills of effective communication so that you don't feel too pressurised.

I feel nerve tightness in temporal nerves, jaws and around the head I had these symptoms since 2010 when I had depression.in 2010 it got cured after taking medicines but in 2011 it again started.in 2012 I again took antidepressants for two months then these symptoms were gone for 4 months but again started. I then after six months went to psychiatrist n took medicine like dimip/depsol 75, gabapin NT, valpipchrono500.i took them for one year but did not get much relief. I then changed the doctor n he added one medicine lamitor OD. I immediately felt better. and for one year I was ok. But then it seemed that those medicines stopped working on me. I then recently took Ayurveda medicine. I felt excellent for last 5 months. But now again these medicines stopped working. Due to this nerve tightness I become depressed and I have lot of dreams so do not have sound sleep. Please suggest.

Dear lybrate-user, recurrent depressive disorder is recurrent as the name suggests. Your history also suggests the same. It comes on its own and goes away like a passing cloud on its own. Only during the depressive phase you need antidepressants allopathic or ayurvedic. They are mainly to endure the depression and to prevent suicide. It has not much of preventive value for future episodes of depression. To prevent every year depressive episode, your psychiatrist has prescribed valip chono and later lamitor od. These preventive drugs have to be taken for many years. And also they have to be taken during your normal phase also. The dose will be adjusted according to the benefit - whether every year attack has reduced, whether the severity is less, whether you spend many months in normal mood. For all these things please maintain a mood chart daily for years. Take the mood chart to psychiatrist and discuss with him/her. Nerve tightness is one of the symptoms of depression rather than cause for depression. No sound sleep also is one of the symptoms.

Hi, I appreciate you seeking help. First and foremost, I would advise you to remain mentally strong and think positive. In order that you are not obsessively compelled to think negative and imagine stuff, it is important for you to assure yourself time and again that everything is perfectly ok and distract yourself by visualizing or doing something meaningful, relaxing and one that gives you a sense of inner strength and positive energy/ vibes. Remember, its only a fear, which in your case seems mostly to be related to a negative thought that something might go wrong, that you need to dispel off and understand clearly that there is absolutely nothing in reality to be afraid about. Do have strong belief in yourself, and try performing to the best of your abilities irrespective. Also, whenever it suits, listening to a soothing and inspiring music also helps you to stay calm and relaxed. Do plan your day, listing out the things to be achieved and get going about them one by one confidently without being overly anxious of the results. Simultaneously, do be on a healthy and balanced diet with focus on leafy greens and fresh fruits. Take plenty of water daily and stay hydrated. Keep your lifestyle streamlined and do walking/ exercise, yoga etc all in fresh air. Get yourself exposed to the early morning sunlight for 5 to 10 minutes daily. Keep your stress levels low and stay relaxed and focused. Enjoy your favorite yet light weight films/ serials/ cartoons etc all as you like to watch and get some interesting yet light stories to read while you retire to bed. You may take a glass of warm milk with a pinch of fresh turmeric powder and a tsp of honey mixed to the same, at bed time. At the same time, I would advise you to meet a psychologist in person should you not get relief still. He/ she may require prescribing you an anxiolytic suitably that you can use for a couple of days and one that helps tranquil your mind and help you control your thoughts. Hope this helps. All the very best and take care.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Please meet with a counselor first and then a psychiatrist to deal with this issue, as soon as possible. Please take you parents with you to determine the possible developmental issues that may have contributed to this condition. This is a fear-based condition and for some reason you have not been dealing with childhood fear which has now developed these repetitive adaptations to seem to need it for normal functioning. The behavior will then become based on magical thinking like you describe and certain rituals will become necessary to do normal things making you believe that either the frequency or the ritual is important to its success. This of course is a fallacy but there will come a time that even if told the truth, your belief will defy any logic and you will continue behaving like that even if it cripples you in your daily routines. It only appears as though some other force is behind these behaviors and that you are compelled to act in this fashion. That is obviously not true but no one can convince you of anything different. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern with no meaningful outcome; and the compulsiveness is the need to act on those obsessions also in a repeated behavior pattern as though you just cannot help yourself. There are certain behavioral techniques to be implemented and if they work you may get out of this condition rather easily. If that does not work as desired, then medication has to be introduced, and in combination much work can be achieved.

HI Lybrate user If you prepare for the exam properly you should do fine, there is no need to worry excessively just believe in yourself. But if you find you don't understand some of your course material take help from teacher or your classmates. Don't try to be perfect just do your best. Confiding in someone you trust and who will be supportive is a great way to alleviate stress and worry. Try to think positive such as- "I will do my best" "I have done it before so I can do it again" etc. When you feel excessive stress just close your eyes and take several long slow deep breaths. Believe in yourself and just do your best. All The Best.

Dear user. Beating children of any age should have bad consequences emotionally in their mind and in their future life. Children at any age should be treated as emotional beings and they be treated with care. Punishment should be used as an extreme measure. Take care.

Suggest me to how to quite smoking and clean up my lungs. Suggest me I got like allergy on my chest.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

Hi lybrate-user. As I understand that you are under stress due to some financial troubles. First of all, having depression or anxiety disorder is different from having stress. Anxiety disorder and depression are disorders in which there is significant impairment. The symptoms usually include sadness of mood, poor interest in work, negative thoughts, poor sleep and appetite. Your treatment will depend on the symptoms, you have. You can take either medications or psychological counselling or best a combination of both. Meet a nearby psychiatrist who will evaluate you in detail and will guide the treatment.
