Hi. My mother has been diagnosed with reactive depression. She is 45 years old. My father passed away last year and the doctor has said that she is even in the menopause stage. She has been prescribed with 2 anti depressants. May I know whether these medications will become permanent or are safe for short time? and what will be the potential side effects?

Antidepressants are safe medications. They do not cause any harm to mind/brain and are not habit forming. They should be taken for adequate period so that symptoms don't recur.

Avoid bending in front. Postural correction- sit tall, walk tall. Apply hot fomentation twice daily. Extension exercises x 15 times x twice daily. Bhujang asana. Core strengthening exercises. Back stretching. Do the cat/cow stretch.

I forget the things and don't remember it, what should I do to improve my memory.

First of all you must start to give positive instructions to your mind that your memory is good or strong, and whenever you forget the things while doing something and that stuck your mind so rather than give up go step by step back to your mind what were you actually doing and what for I m here to do. And this practice will improve your memory power.

Ways to manage Anger and Depression

Hi I'm Dr. Kanan, a Clinical Psychologist and a performance coach.

How many of you get depressed? I can bet some of you are saying "I". And how many of you get angry? The other half are saying "yes", I can almost see that.

Most of us oscillate between being depressed and angry. And it's okay and it's normal. What you need to know is why that happens and how you can help yourself. So depression is something that you turn inwards, right? You get sad and you don't want to go to work, you get lethargic and nothing and nothing in life seems really worth it. And when the same energy is turned outside, it's anger where you are edgy and sensitive and lash out, and the smallest of things seem to irritate you. We swing between these two extremes, so we turn depression inside, maybe want to be kind of rude and mean to ourselves, and anger is something we throw out.

Why would you be rude and mean to another? Oh! It was not intentional. I recommed you don't make it intentional to yourself as well. So. what is very important is, and if you see you are stuck in these two extremes and these two patterns, it's very important to find a balance. So that people don't see you as to separate people. Most importantly you will feel at balance. You will be more in your skin, you will be more content and happy. So at Life Cures Wellness clinic we enable you to practice mindful practices, we enable you to be happy, so we use processes like emotional freedom techniques, so that you learn to handle your emotions, have a balance.

At Life Cures we also enable you to use these emotions to empower you so that you can communicate better and be happy because happiness is clearly the way to your productivity. You can feel free to contact me, I'm Dr. Kanan on librate.com. Thank you very much.

Dear user. You are just 18. These sort of things happen to almost everyone when they change their locations. It will be alright within around 6 months. Please be patient. Take care.

My uncle is of 40 years old. He is an advocate. He don't trust any one. He always thought that every one is looking at him, talking about him. If we want to take him to hospital ,he refused to go. 12 years back he had a heart surgery. His mood changes minute to minute. He always think that every one is going to kill him.

He seems to be suffering from Paranoid disorder, consult your nearby psychiatrist on how to treat him, against his will. Since he himself is a lawyer, you need to seek the help of another lawyer and file a petition to the magistrate under the Mental Health Act 1987, for involuntary treatment. The petition can be given by the closest family member. The judge will summon him, and he would request the opinion from a government psychiatric hospital and then decide on future treatment course. All the best.

Do not decide the treatment based on your symptoms. There are many frauds posing as hypnotherapists with out practise license. Get yourself evaluated by a psychiatrist and decide future course of treatment.

My husband, 53 years old, has almost stopped communicating with family and friends. He avoids company, refuses to go out other than office, doesn't answer phone calls except extremely important. He is a regular drinker and a chain smoker. He is not open to any kind of conversation. He watches TV all the time he is at home. He sleeps around the clock on weekends. His health checkup shows that his vital organs are functioning perfectly. He suffers from Vitamin D deficiency, for which he is under medication for the past 3 months and his triglyceride level is high. We are married for 24 years. He hardly ever initiated sex, even when we were newly married. He is a single child of over-protective parents. He has had a few extra-marital liasons till some years back. He has never initiated any kind of family outings. His academic performance in school/college was below average. There was traces of sexual perversion and sadism in him, which get exposed through his behaviour at times, specially when he is high on alcohol. He gets attracted to very young girls and maid servants. He refuses to undergo counselling/treatment. How can I help him?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He is an alcoholic, a smoker, a womanizer, a sexual pervert, non-communicative, does not have intimacy with you, he was unfaithful, he has high triglycerides, is withdrawn, and a weekend recluse. Wow! What a basket case list of problems, and yet you want to help him. He is both blessed and cursed. He is blessed to have someone like you who has stood by him all these years and through all these problems. But he also cursed for this very reason: you are what we call a co-dependent ? A role that facilitates the addictions. You must immediately attend an Al-Anon group where you will meet other family members of alcoholics who support each other and adopt strategies and methods to counter the problem of the addict, and to change your own role to bring about the change in your husband. They have a 12-step program that is highly effective and will address the situation potently. He must be taken for counseling, or admitted in a facility for rehabilitation. Some institutes will wait till he is in a sufficiently enough drunken stupor to pick him up by force, if you give them the undertaking to go ahead with this action. If you feel bad, sorry or reluctant, then you are facilitating the addiction and coming in the way of his recovery. He needs help and so do you. It is a family disease, and firm actions are the order of the day. Use the help of other strong and respected family members to push for these measures. You may want to read my book on addictions to better understand the problems and take right actions. It is not too late, so just go ahead.

I am 20 year old and having depression I think because I always feel sad and sometimes I remain to live alone and I don't like to make new friends and don't want to talk with anyone. I lost my interest in every thing. I can't remember things. I also a short tempered. If someone don't listen to me or the things are not going as I wish I feel sad. Sometimes I used to cry over small matter. Now a days I also run away from people and from my family. Earlier once I tried harming myself. Please advise me what should I do and what I am thinking is true.

feeling lonely is a very subjective thing. You don't have to be in a desert or a jungle alone to feel lonely. Many people feel lonely even in the centre of the city. Just talking to people doest eliminate loneliness. As individuals we have needs. Financial, emotional, physical, dietery, spiritual, security, materialistic etc. So happiness comes from fulfilling of these needs. Merely having people around you talking to you and nothing fulfilling your needs will still make people feel ignore d and lonely. Ultimately your happiness is in your hands. You either fulfill your needs or you learn to live without them. Because people are busy in fulfill ing their own needs and nobody has time for anyone else by and largely. We live in a world where people talk big thingd but don't actually do or mean a fraction of what they say. So you have to learn to deal with this. Also there is a huge competition that my need is more important than your needs and this is there every where around us in a very intense mode. Even if you manage ti fulfill some of your needs it is very difficult to sustain it as it may soon become someone elses need. Its like a jungle where theres constant hunting for needs going on. Even the stuff inside your house is not safe and protected from this hunting. Unfortunately this is the truth you have to live with as of now.
