I am 18 female. Attempted suicide just want to finish my life. I just hate it. What can I do.?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are very young and have a full life ahead of you. You have turned a lot of anger towards yourself. You must identify that anger, its origins, and why you feel you need to turn it against yourself. Life is precious and beautiful depending on how you want to see it, and what circumstances you allow to disturb it. Sometimes when we are not able to get what we want, we need to adjust our wants to cope with the situation. People who cannot make these changes to suit the situation end up becoming maladjusted persons and can suffer more problems in life. It is our resilience that is a sign of good mental health. Surely you do not come into that category! please talk to a counselor, either with your parents or without them too, and discuss your problems at length. That person may want you to meet with a psychiatrist, if it is really serious. Even so, do not give up on the counseling and cooperate with both the therapies, sincerely. At your age you will need to see a lot more of life and realize that you are not mature enough to take your life for want of proper understanding of your circumstances. A counselor will do the needful to explain these intricacies of life. Nothing is worth taking your life for. Your anger is making you have these thoughts and if it is not dealt with soon, you could end up depressed or you may already be depressed. Don? t be so rigid. Negotiate everything. There is always a way, if you are flexible. You must learn to lvoe yourself and your life.

I have been feeling giddiness from about 18 months. I feel this when I speak loador jog or walk fast. It is causing me a lot of problems. I am not able to concentrate and I left my job due to this reason. When I checked with the doctor they told me I do not have any problem. They checked my entire nerve system, ear system, blood check up, thyroid checkup. I do not know whether I have any problem with my brain because 18 months back I had felt some kind of a pain in my head for about 1-2 minutes. After that the giddiness started. Please help. Thanks.

Dear lybrate user. Once your doctors had checked the entire nerve system, ear system, blood check up, thyroid checkup, then once if doctors are sure that you don't have any problems, please believe them and ignore the symptoms. If you do not ignore and obsess with symptoms, the symptoms will always be there and you will be troubled more and more. Counseling and psychotherapy will suit you. Take care.

I want to be successful in life but I have not achieved anything so far. I somehow able to complete my graduation. I always wanted to be first and get a good job in life. Because of my fear that I have not done well in studies. It took me five years to complete my graduation. I am a good kid. I don't do drugs and I am not interested in making any girlfriend. My parents always expected me that I will do good in life and take care of them because of this, I feared more and not able to do well in graduation. The main reason for this fear is I used to be a monk and I left my monkhood for my parents because my sister got married early despite of her age. My father got angry and created lot of tensions in our family because of her marriage so I have to leave my monkhood. It took me years to know about people and deal with society. As I was a monk my perspective towards life was different and I am not able to compete with fellow students. I have spent 4 years in monastery and after getting out from there, it was hard for me to do schooling and normal things. But I did my best in schools and not in graduation. Please help me Dr. I have never told this to anyone even my friends, I just want to keep this story to myself. I have gone to lot of depression during my teenage because of my religious values which was not compatible with people. But I remain silent and quiet and moved on. Now, I am in my 20's please help Sir/Madam, I am ready to anything to change my life please help. Now, I am preparing for GRE and trying to do master's in abroad. Please help me, I am really frustrated.

Relax dear Lybrate user. You are unnecessary torturing yourself for nothing. First of all drop all your unrealistic ideas of becoming successful in life or becoming a monk. You are too young and immature to understand both the concepts. SUPERFICIAL KNOWLEDGE IS DANGEROUS. You are unconsciously comparing yourself with others. Nobody is perfect. Try to set realistic goals which could be attainable by your abilities. Talk about your position with all the people whom you love and respect, more and more. You will get some clarity about your future. If it does not help, go for counseling.

You must forgive for your own sake. The poison that is meant for the other is going to eat you up like a consumptive disease. Forgetting is trying to remove a memory which is, near impossible. However, if you express the emotions behind the memory it is possible to make the memory less powerful and therefore less harmful. You can also deal with that past in what is called Gestalt therapy and remove the pain of the past. Meet with a counselor and get the necessary help to enable this. 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.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. These emotions are triggered when you are frustrated, disappointed, stressed or anxious. You must learn to control your anger through understanding circumstances and learning to manage anger. Anger management therapy will be helpful to you. Take care.

Can't say - but definitely it is related to his mental state. Have him occupied with whatever he loves to do . Ask him to ignore the jerk and accept it as any seasonal problem. If he can wear a knee cap for support , it may help him be distracted from his knee

Inability to concentrate can be because of stress, anxiety, boredom, preoccupation with a bothersome thought or Attention Deficit Disorders. Identifying the cause helps us deal with the problem. In the mean time, make a time schedule for the day. Include regular exercise and stress reducing activities like sports or a hobby. Make small goals and revise within 12 hours of studying a topic. If you can't study alone, find a study partner.

Hello lybrate-user, change yourself. Unless and until you change your thoughts nothing can help you. For that be confident in you. Be sure of your abilities and your weak points. Negative thoughts come out of your poor self confidence and your fear to life. Don't get feared, your life is in you, put maximum effort to come forward.

You may be having depression. Depression brings lot of negative thoughts which you are having. Please consult a psychiatrist to rule out depression. But if it is diagnosed then start on antidepressants which he will advise you. After a few days of the course you will feel better. So consult immediately.

Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

My sister's age is 37 years, she is a severe case of depression treated by private psychiatrist. She is on regular medication for the last 15 years. She sleeps 5-6 hrs during daytime, snoring is very high, weight gain visible, brain not working properly, gets bad dreams. Feels better if not working. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, I agree with you, her case is sounding quite severe, and to be depressed for so long might have taken a toll on her motivation. It is easy for everyone to get angry with her but you have got to be understanding and yet firm. She needs help from the external because her internal drive may be highly diminished. One problem I am certain you have not done, which is to give her therapy while on medication. She needs to talk to some counselor qualified to treat depression. All these years have gone by without that form of support. Now what you can do is the following: take her out by force in the sun for at least half an hour daily. Take her for vigorous exercise everyday but start gradually. Do not let her sleep beyond 6. 30 am every day. She should not be allowed to lie down, sleep or lounge around during the day time. In fact she should be put on a tight time-table of interesting and mind-occupying activities. If she is taking her night tablets late, make her have dinner as early as 8 pm and let her take her night medication at that time and go to sleep as early as possible. Have her eat a lot of fiber and proteins in her diet. Give her some positive affirmations to recite every morning and night, three times at a time. There are certain products that help lose weight, which are very good. If interested, she can take them, regularly until the desired weight loss is achieved. There are some neurological exercises too that she can do but other people need to be involved. You can get in touch with me for some of them. Please be very patient with her but do all this on a war-footing and aggressively, if you want to see some improvement. Things will change gradually and will depend on her cooperation and all of your support.

I am having psychological problem. I am not able to concentrate my mind on reading or any other activities I feel upset.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have a problem provoked by your hormones, which is undergoing some readjustment. 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 is 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.

Since 2011 I have been suffering from a disease. I every time talk with me. Feeling much depression. Will it be cured...
It is curable. It has good medicine in psychiatry. But do not depend on medicine. It has some side effects. You come yourself from this problem. You are introvert. Keep all the feelings internally and suffering very much. It is not good for yourself. When you have feelings it is better to share with others. Do not sit alone and do not think too much about this problem. Do not feel and think about I suffered long time. Do not count years etc. Feel always normal. Today everyone has depressive thoughts. If they think seriously they will become psychiatry patients. So do not think too much. Control yourself to change your personality aspects if not possible to possible to yourself. It is better to take help of psychologist. Psychological counselling has no side effects. It improves your personality. It helps to grow your personality. It changes your style management. Better to share your internal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. Be friendly with every one. Feel always comfortable and be sociable all the time and be happy. Ok all the best.
