The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Hi doctor,I am suffering from some sort of mental disturbance from last one year after my girlfriend left me saying that she is too busy with her work and just don't want me anymore, I was shocked and surprised by her sudden change, she accepted that it was her fault and I had been always good with her, but her way of talking changed and I have not been able to deal with it. What should I do?

You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were you disappointed in the near past? Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

I am preparing for competitive exam for last 3 years but haven't gained much progress, have developed an escapist attitude, tend to over analyze things and find faults in everything. I want to study and pursue my dream job but I am not able to concentrate, I don't see progress, I am overwhelmed by the cut throat competition and thus waste my whole day, feel depressed and don't feel like doing anything. What should I do?

Hi lybrate-user, just do your bit, study hard, dreams come true when one is dedicated to achieve it. Just work hard and don't bother about competition sooner or late you will ace it. Do some deep breathing exercise/say positive things to yourself that are motivating and mentally rehearse yourself achieving your goals step by step.

Very simple. Make sure everytime your body is being pricked by a needle that whether it is a properly sterilized one or disposable new one. You can also request your medical person to remove the packaging of syrenges and needles only in front of you, you have every right to do so. Nowadays, only disposable syrenges and needles are in use.

Your Body on Marijuana When you smoke pot, THC and other chemicals travel from your bloodstream to your brain. THC causes the feel-good "high." Here are some of the other effects you'll feel: Trouble thinking and remembering Bloodshot eyes Dry mouth (cotton mouth) Increased appetite (the "munchies") Fast heart rate Slowed coordination

My wife is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia. Sometimes she is very rigid and violent. Sizdon plus medicine she is taking. But she is reluctant to take a medicine. What should be done. Also she doesn't believe on any body including me also.

Lybrate user, Welcome to this forum! I see that your wife is refusing to take treatment and she is symptomatic i.e paranoid about others. There are other ways to deal with this problem - 1) get her admitted in a hospital with psychiatry ward. 2) can start with depot injections or tablets that medicines that can be given on months/weekly basis. 3) follow up with psychiatrist for any other suggestions. All the best! Regular treatment is of utmost importance in a violent patient. Healthy mind is as important as healthy body. For more queries you can consult me online.

I always remain ridden with negative thoughts and under the fear of future. I am not enjoying my life even a bit. I can't concentrate on my profession which entails a good deal of concentration. I was (prescribed) on Venlor and Agildol by a psychiatrist for more than one year but still I am suffering. Please guide me. Is it feasible to get well without medicines in such cases ? Thanks !

You need CBT/ Meditation/Excercise/Walking/breathing/milk/ balanced diet and you need to check your full blood tests. If not try counselling/Pdychiotherapy lastly try medications.

Hello, Over the past couple of year I have developed high level of anxiety mostly when it comes to my physical appearance and sometimes when I think about my future. I am currently working in a service based company in Bangalore and my salary is below the average as compared to national average (around 20K per month). There are other things like when I came to Bangalore I literally saw number to girls having multiple sex relationship and they don't feel guilty about it. Now that's my opinion, I may be wrong but again I don't like such women's. That being said sometime I feel bad for people who are married to women's like that. Is it normal that I having such thoughts or it's inappropriate. One more thing I would like to say is that I believe I have as much potential as others do but every-time I fail to recognise it. I think I have failed my parents and they are not happy with me. And last but not the least PHYSICAL APPEARANCE. I have been told or say reminded by a lot of people that I am UGLYand even I think that is true because honestly no girls give a damn about me, every-one simply ignores me. Please I need help. I can't live with these thoughts any longer. Regards,

You need to grow up. Any adult having consensual sexual relationship with another adult is not wrong, since women are more expressive about their sexual needs, being in a cosmopolitan city like Bangalore, you need to accept these facts and should not judge them morally. Regards to your potential, since you r very confident, good, use that as a ladder and work hard in a proper way and start earning more. Do not be fixed with a company, if you r doing well, send feelers to other companies and if they pay more jump, this is how you can come up. Also you r parents may not judge you bad, for all or most their kids are their own and remove the negative thoughts. Regarding your appearance, even ugliest people r becoming superstars in movies, so atitude matters, carry and dress in a manner so people adore and respect u. All the best.
