Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

The anxiety may be due to digestive disorder and hyper acidity, which could be due to your sedentary job and life style problem. May be due to digestive disorder. Observe the following to improve your digestive system---*Diet –Avoid fried, spicy and sour foods. *Maintain food timings-neither stomach should be empty nor heavy, frequent small helpings may be ok. *Prefer – whole grains, milk, curd, greens, fruits and such items which suit you. *Have timely and adequate sleep. *.

How to get rid of depression caused by various reasons while doing research program, i.e., PhD. One of the reasons is that the research supervisor keeps stretching my duration unreasonably although I have done my part to meet the minimum requirement of receiving research degree (PhD.)? He knows that I am financially drained out:(

How do you think about your research and supervisor is need to be evaluated. Push yourself to do more rational and practical thinking. Everyone has his own way to work. Try to know more about the way your supervisor works what exactly he wants. Provide practical evidences to your thoughts related to your supervisor. You can also improve the way of your communication with him. It is the best way to connect with someone. You are going to learn a lot through this experience. Think positive sides of this experience rather than thinking of difficulties.

Hi I am 30 years old. Married. It's been six months and I always have bad thoughts about my husband. And keep asking questions always.

psychologist
Psychologist, Delhi
This time is very crucial for both of you,which will decide your future married life.and if you will think negatively about your husband then you will not be able to make strong bond with your husband. Please don't ask always questions it will spoil your married life.By doing this you are making distance in your relation and your husband is going away from you,infact you are pushing him towards your thoughts in reality.But its also important that you should clarify your doubts.Talk with your husband openly and clarify your doubts but don't think again and again on this topic .make yourself busy as much as you can ,make some good friend,share your feelings with someone.take care.

It seems to me that you lack self- confidence and in need of proper career guidance by a qualified person who can assess your strength and weanesses, abilities, interests and personality characeristics by using psychometric tests and personalized interviews, and put you on the right track. Stop asking guidance from other people. If you can not find such a career guidance counsellor around your location, I can help you through paid consultation platform of lybrate.

Depression is a common and disabling illness, affecting over 100 million people worldwide. Depression can have a significant impact on people’s physical health, as well as reducing their quality of life.


But did you know that exercise is also good for your head? The most common treatments for depression, for example, are psychotherapy or medication. Psychologists have found that exercise is a third successful alternative.EXERCISE is an effective, cost-effective treatment for depression and may help in the treatment of other mental disorders.


The results from many studies support the idea that exercise improves mood in people with mild to moderate depression.

By reviewing the results from 51 different studies on exercise for depression, it was revealed that a small but significant increase in self esteem was associated with the reduction of symptoms of depression. As more research is being carried out on exercise for depression, researchers are theorizing that exercise could possibly elevate serotonin levels enough to alleviate mild to moderate depression.

The concept that exercise is an effective treatment for depression is not new. The Cochrane Collaboration, an enormous network of scientific experts around the world recently published (Rimer et al July 2012) a review of 28 articles studying the effects of exercise on depression symptoms with a total of 1101 participants. They showed that exercise significantly improved symptoms of depression, although modestly, but the benefits were long lasting.

" Exercise provides psychological and physical benefits. However, if you also adopt a strategy that engages your mind while you exercise, you can get a whole host of psychological benefits fairly quickly" Quote by James Rippe, M.D.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Congratulations on your quitting smoking. It could take ten days to one month or six month for your body to completely repair your body and vocal chords. This depends on your smoking period. As you are just 19 years, your smoking period could be very less. Don't worry. Take care.

Dear Doctor, I'm feeling fear psychosis for everything. I fear to take bath, I fear to drive my car, I'm not able to take lunch/dinner alone because of unknown fear. I am not able to sleep because of unknown fear having no reason, thinking that what would happen if I sleep. I feel a strange kind of fear if I stay alone. Sweating comes out abnormally. Sometimes, I feel very depressed. I'm not able to concentrate anything. Moreover, I do something, need immediate result. I loose my control to wait for the result. About 1.5 years back I was having acute pain all over my lower limbs. I had undergone with various tests & medicines but nothing cured me. Alternatively, having no alternative, gone for electro-homeopathic treatment. I was cured. I'm a diabetic & taking glypride-1000 mg regularly after dinner. Please suggest to overcome from this phobia.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user no as you asked about your problems related to your nervous system and unknown fearing are relatively linked with your nervous system and anxiety, depression. I would like to advise you to follow regular daily routines of getting all dietary measures and daily behaviours as well as exercise and yoga. You may learn yoga from any yoga teacher and practice daily. However you may engage yourself in any work. You may practice meditation twice daily then you feel better result.

Hello lybrate-user, this doesn't sound like an anxiety disorder but a normal bodily reaction to the situations that any person feels. Although, if this feeling of anxiety is continuing in other situations as well, and there is intense nervousness or panic, I would recommend that you speak to a professional as soon as possible as it can be detrimental in the long run.
