Dear good question you asked. Many people has the same type of questions. I am afraid, I should not help you here. Mainly because, your doctor knows your conditions better than me. He has given you the medicine and you should approach him if you want to change anything. You can also approach another psychiatrist near you. Advising you here without knowing you fully, will be a sin. Please pardon me. God bless you. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. Summer heat always draws more water from your body. This water loss and general tiredness is the reason for your laziness. Drinking a lot of water, fruit juices etc will help. Take care.

My in laws are always shouting and fighting. Shouting on my kids. I get depressed and angry. Please advise.

Psychologist,
If you are planning to stay with your in laws then it' s important to have open communication with them. Find out what is their reasons for fighting and tell them how it affects your children and you. They may or may not be able to understand you. As a parent it' s your responsibility to ensure that your children don' t undergo undue stress. You might want to keep them apart sometimes yet also let them develop their own relationship with each other. Some children have their own filters to filter out unwanted experiences while others get very much impacted. For more details click on private chat if you are interested.

I am suffering from accute depression due to my job. I am a banker and I can't tolerate when my boss misbehave me. I am loosing my confidence and efficiency.

MD Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mohali
Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I am sorry to hear that you are facing hardships in your job that is making your life stressful. The fact that you are feeling loss of confidence and efficiency definitely suggests that you are not able to cope up with it. Frankly, you can't change the way your boss behaves but you can work on yourself and focus on improving your coping skills. You will need a complete evaluation by a psychiatrist and accordingly treatment will be initiated. Treatment modalisties can be medications, psychotherapy or a combination of both. You can consult me if you wish to in my clinic for the treatment. You should also start to exrcise daily and also start writing adiary daily to vent out your feelings. It will help you feel better. I do hope that you recover from this depressive phase soon enough. Best wishes.

If I smoke 2 cigarettes a week, what effect can it cause to my health. I hv been smoking for the past one and a half year.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is near impossible to calculate the effects of smoking at any frequency. Cigarette smoke contains almost 7000 chemicals, most of which are harmful. That itself indicates that even one cigarette can harm your body and that of others around you. Each cigarette effects your erectile capacity! instead of relying on statistics, just quit it and you will be safe.

He always wanted a working women who can take her full responsibility. Till date that man has not taken a single responsibility of me. Sometimes I feel I should commit suicide.

Your life is in your hands: You do well for yourself and do not depend on your husband to give you any attention if he is not willing to give it. If he genuinely loves you, he will not depend on what you bring into the situation. If you are patient and still caring towards him, you will win him over in time. For your depression I recommend that you do the following: You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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.

Please exercise atleast 20 minutes to 30 minutes even normal walk is good for increasing blood circulation. Revital tables are good as these help in improving. Improves mental alertness & concentration increases ability to handle stress helps improve your health, immunity & stamina supplements diet for increased well-being even if you are healthy, you can take revital as it gives all the vitamins and minerals your body needs on a daily basis. These days we do not eat the right quantity & quality of food that is required to fulfill all the daily requirements of vitamins & minerals, so we all need revital to stay fit and active. Take with water once a day after breakfast. Good luck and god bless you.

My daughter short type memory what can I do her mind study she learn but after some time his mind blank.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This may be a recent development and it is primarily because of her age. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting her ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time she could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: she will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, she will become sexually active, and she will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact her memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But she may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if she goes to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else she is doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that her 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. She should 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. She needs to check out if she is stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if she combines the two modes, she 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 she gets bored, study by writing. If she repeats learning at least five to seven times, she 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 left nostril and breathe, move 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 she must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that her teacher will be able to guide her with. If the home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect her 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.

I got bad marks in board exam that's why I am feeling very Depressed and that's why I started drinking alcohol. How can I get rid of this bad habit?

M.Sc - Psychology
Psychologist, Kolkata
Good. Introspection is the first step to success. Since you can reason yourself that drinking is a bad habit, it will be easy for you to get rid of it. Avoidance of difficult situation and preconceived estimation of other's reaction cause people to indulge in unhelpful habits. If you pick up biographies of great people you will find that after lot of failures and consistent effort towards desired goals led them to achieve, what they are today. Board exams are important in getting admission for pursuing higher studies. How you want yourself to be looked upon as is more imortant than that. Sometimes self identity and image are affected by low self esteem. Life is a journey and live it to its brim. You cannot predict your future.

When I sit for reading than I get distracted from my mind. Please solutions my problem.?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Obviously something is troubling you and it is causing much distraction. If you are young your hormones may cause a lot of disturbance to take you away from your focus. If your level of stress is too much it can affect your memory. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. 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.
