I have a lot of depression for many days through which I thought that iam gona die what am I do?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
In depression, you need to see a psychiatrist to start medication. Alternate sciences also treat depression. You can choose which route you want to take. Depressive patients sometimes feel suicidal also because they can't see any hope and they blame themselves for many things going wrong. Is this what is happening to you? if you have many negative thoughts going through your head, then you would need to see a counsellor who can help you with cbt techniques to help you overcome depression. Also please read my tip on depression, where I have elaborated on many changes which you will need to make to deal with it.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

I have a very weak memory. So I couldn't remember things easily. What should I do to increase memory?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

You should not stop anti epileptic medicines with out consulting your doctor. Kindly show me a photograph of the affected part. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

I am suffering from mental disorders like stress and depression. I don't want to take medicines. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you are serious about not taking medication, you will have to work very hard and it is difficult but not impossible. In that case you will need to go for intense counselling and work out the depression. S/he will guide you to work on several other related issues to help you walk through life and handle every day routines very effectively. If not, you may also consider working with medication and counseling and if you are without depression break down for three years at least, you could be weaned off of the medication! It is not enough to rely only on medication, alone. So consider what I suggest really well. Any which way, you need to do the following: this is the only condition were you are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of 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 scotching heat. I hope you have someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings too.

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.

This is purely due to some fear or insecurities in your life either actual or perceived. These situations in turn leads to all the symptoms you are experiencing. You need to directly connect either online or in person with an expert Psychotherapist like me to open your heart out to find guidance, support and Psychotherapy as per need. As your investigations like ECG etc are normal, Just calm down, relax and prepare to talk to/meet an expert as i said. You will be definitely alright.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly.

How to Prevent an Emotional Meltdown?

Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How to Prevent an Emotional Meltdown?

Is depression eating you up from within? Are you facing severe emotional meltdown? Emotional disturbances can ruin your life and this is why you have to look for the best preventive ways. You can have a consultation with any counsellor so that you can share your problems. Your counsellor will definitely help you to get some potential way out. 

Best ways for preventing emotional meltdown:

  1. Detecting the signs: The actual signs of emotional meltdown need to be detected and then only you can get rid of the same. Both your facial expressions and behavioural changes are to be observed carefully as these will help you to detect the signs. If you are remaining silent for most of the times, then there is something going on in your mind for sure. 
  2. Early intervention: You should rely on your intuition or sixth sense so that you can sense the troubles you are going to face. You should have a good observation power so that you can sense things easily. Remain quiet and calm so that you can take the right decisions. 
  3. Living well: You need to choose a completely healthy way of living, otherwise you will never get freedom from emotional troubles. Do not think much about past incidents, rather you should look forward so that you can go ahead. You should develop only positive mentality in order to discharge your duties in a perfect manner. Remain happy and keep everybody happy and then only you will be able to get the actual essence of life. Healthy eating and good habits are also needed so that your life can become more lively and refreshing. 
  4. Have proper communication: If you think that your friends or family members are pretty reliable, then you can openly communicate with them. This would help you to get mental relief and relaxation.  If you open up your emotions and share them with anybody, then you will feel relaxed and your mind will be calm at all times. 
  5. Have counselling: It is not always possible to share all your secrets with your loved ones and this is the reason you have to look for the most reliable option. You can go for thorough counselling, and this can help you to get rid of depressing thoughts and other mental troubles. In this case, you have to look for the best counsellor in your locality so that you can disclose all your hidden secrets.

Dear lybrate-user, excessive thinking leads to stress. Stress is caused for head pain. So better to think too much for one aspect. Some problems will not solve immediately. It needs time. Up to that we should wait. Excessive thinking leads to so many problems. You are not in depression now. If you continue the same status there is a chance to get the depression. So it is in your hands. You want to be depression or not. So feel always flexible. In the world everyone has their own problems. So many suffer from their problems when compare to their problems your problems are very low. Think like that feel always happy. Do not go for medicine for small reasons it may be addiction. So feel comfortable. Enjoy the every movement of life in a positive manner. Ok best of luck.

1. Before marriage his family only told us about diabetes and depression disorder out of which depression disorder has lessened. After marriage and after observing him I asked him why he was taking so many medicines. He says he has high blood pressure, cholesterol , he takes a medicine for blood thining, uric acid and prostrate problem. 2. Upon further observation, I found out that he has anxiety disorder and still has depression disorder, he lacks emotions, feelings, he always things about his satisfaction i.e. in a word self centered, has problem in facing reality, not able to talk to others apart from people he knows. When I asked his parents about all these issues they vehemently opposed the above things and started blaming me. But when they saw things are going out of control and might get worse as I have said all the above things to my parents also, his mother out of fear admitted a bit about anxiety and depression. Though both his mother and father started covering up of his illness and said that his illness are controlled as he is taking medicines and he can lead a normal life and even he told the same thing. 3. Now about finances ? I come from a middle class family and during marriage I (as was working earlier before marriage) and my family both have spend money for the marriage purpose and now after marriage I do not have work as I shifted to a different city. The said things they now it very well but still what I have observed is he too wants that if we go for an outing or so he wants that I spend money on one way and also spend money on my personal expenses. 4. Dependence ? Though he is able to depend on me as I am capable to doing most of the things but on the other hand he is not able to do much because of various difficulties and also things just like his mother and father does everything for him, I being a wife too shall do everything as his parents does for him. His mother too said that they wanted a strong personality wife. Now according to me, every father and mother wants a strong personality wife for their son, but what afterwards I understood upon probing them is as he is weak and not able to handle everything. Now my question is why was all the above things which I found out was not discussed earlier before marriage as they told us about diabetes so after marriage too I did not make any issues about it. His mother says they got less time before marriage to say so but his mother used to write long long emails to me and my family about various issues related before marriage, why she did not write an email and could have told us about the problems her son has. She had time to write long long emails related to marriage but did not had time to explain about her son?s condition.

What happens to people with autism when they grow up?

Since autism is a spectrum and people have varying skill levels, future is not the same for all people with autism. A lot of children who are able to cope with mainstream school /college education go undiagnosed and are successful at jobs but may be considered quiet or reserved adults by their family, friends and colleagues.

Several adults on the spectrum who have been diagnosed, and been in a supportive environment in their childhood, have written books which have facilitated and enhanced the understanding of the condition. We have examples of people who are professionally very successful. Some have gone on to become famous authors and at least one has won a Nobel Prize. Some advocate and speak for themselves and for other people with autism in the community.

Some of those who are fully independent in their everyday life may find it difficult to sustain the demands of a job and work environment. Some are married and some choose not to.

Some of those who are married face difficulties in forming relationships with their spouses and carry out responsibilities that come with marriage and having a family, and may continue to need support of another person in planning and carrying out the activities in running a house.

As in every other condition, some people on the spectrum will always need support in life and may never be fully independent. As yet, in India, there are few schools which have an environment or the attitude to accommodate the special needs of people on the autism spectrum. Vocational centers and employment opportunities are even fewer.

For most parents struggling with getting services for their child with autism, one of the biggest worry is‘what after us?’ As yet, there are not enough and appropriate lifespan services for people with autism where they can lead a life of dignity and respect.

However, with support from people around them including the family, friends, neighbours and teachers all of them can lead a happy and meaningful life.
