There are other methods like nicotine replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

Dear Lybrate User, It appears that you feel neglected, hurt and sad. It appears that your husband has certain values and beliefs because of which he thinks that his wife and children have second priority in his life. This is because of his upbringing and his own life experiences. It will be very helpful if you both go to a Professional Counsellor. Do not seek counselling from any family member or friends. It has its limitations. If your husband is not willing to go for couple counselling, then at least you seek help from a Professional Counsellor and start the process. It will help you a lot. Take care.

How to get reduce from frustration and stress? If a man want to successful with his dream then what to do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
How to get reduce from frustration and stress? If a man want to successful with his dream then what to do?
He has to do meditation an yoga and get mind control and work to get his aims. Frustration and anger are fundamental emotions that everyone experiences from time to time. From a very early age, people learn to express frustration by copying the behaviour they see modelled around them, and by expressing frustration and angry behaviour and seeing what they can get away with. We all suffer from frustration, and being able to effectively deal with frustration is a very important skill to develop. Each person needs to learn how to control frustration, so that it does not control them. The following is a brief overview of types of frustration management programs and resources that have proved helpful in understanding and controlling frustration and anger. I have found several approaches to treatment that have been effective for my clients including: individual and group therapy for anger management. A therapist who can observe and analyse your behaviour from an impartial perspective, can help you with your reality testing. A therapist knows many effective frustration and anger management strategies and will be able to help you develop a personalized set of strategies for changing both your thinking and behaviour. Depending on your needs, your therapist may work with you on breathing or meditation exercises to reduce frustration, safe and appropriate emotional and physical techniques to release frustration, communication, or cognitive restructuring (a method for disputing and changing the way you think). Relaxation and exercise simple relaxation tools such as deep breathing and relaxing imagery can help calm down feelings of frustration and anger. Breathing deeply, from your diaphragm, will help while breathing from your chest won't relax you. While breathing, you can slowly repeat a calm word or phrase such as" relax" calm down" or" take it easy. Non-strenuous exercise, like yoga, can relax your muscles and make you feel much calmer. Strenuous and vigorous exercise can also help you to work off frustration and angry feelings. Frustration can have a highly damaging impact on our frame of mind. It can turn a positive person into a person who sees nearly everything as a problem. It can slow you down, inhibit your progress, and at times completely immobilize you. We can become so wound up with our frustration that we do not, and cannot, think or act rationally. Our frustration can often exacerbate a situation and create a vicious circle. If we are convinced that our actions are not working, no matter how hard we try, we are much more likely to reduce, rather than increase, our chances of success. Remember, you cannot eliminate frustration. In spite of all your efforts, things will happen that will cause you frustration and anger. Life is filled with frustration, pain, loss, and the unpredictable actions of others. You can't change that; but you can change the way you let such events affect you. If you feel that your degree of frustration is really out of control, if it is having an impact on your relationships and on important parts of your life, you might consider counselling to learn how to handle it better. Please contact me privately on this site or another therapist.

Dear lybrate user, I guess you are under stress. Please take an appointment with a counsellor who will help you relieve your stress and think rationally. Once you do this you will not have the need to maturbate under compulsion, the counsellor will also help you manage and get rid of your negative thoughts. Killing yourself is not the solution to your problems. Talk to a counsellor. Take care.

To begin with first just calm down and relax. Think you are the only person/mother to your child. After you calm down, have a me time, sit down and think about your life and the options available to you for making improvements in your life. Please avoid working on an impulse because you have a 4 month young child. Also begin to talk to your friends and relatives and then decide. Plenty of help is usually available, you need to explore. Once decision taken with self assessment and help of well meaning close people, make a move. If needed connect a expert relationship/marriage coach and Psychotherapist either or me or anyone nearby either online or in person, to find professional guidance and support. All the best.

I am looking for one answer. Just one word answer that a patient who is moderately depressed from 2-3 years. Can he beat it with exercise, CBT, Diet, yoga and relaxing techniques without taking any antidepressants. I am doing exercise daily. I am getting better and better day by day. I don't want to stop this improvement. But as the time progresses I am in doubt whether really I can be alright with exercise alone?

Possibly no. Exercise and cbt have a positive effect on depression and are proven to improve depression. However in your case, the duration of illness i. E. 2-3 years is striking. This is just because chronic depression usually requires medications and a holistic approach with ruling our other causes of such depression like hormonal imbalances and specific vitamin deficiencies.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Do you know of any event that may have disturbed you and continues to remain in that unresolved state? You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenics 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 or coconut 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. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. But you must have short term memory to convert it into long-term memory. So the emphasis must be in activating good short term memory, ideally and always. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

If it is coming at this age there is something that is rising up from your childhood. Kindly meet with a counselor along with your parents and see what they find out. If the counselor decides that you should see a doctor kindly make that appointment too and cooperate with both the therapies. If it is tackled early the prognosis will be good.

Symptoms of depression? And states how to cure it? When the symptoms are visible.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Symptoms of depression? And states how to cure it? When the symptoms are visible.
Symptoms of depression in women include: • Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" mood. • Loss of interest or pleasure in activities, including sex. • Restlessness, irritability, or excessive crying. • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness, hopelessness, pessimism. • Sleeping too much or too little, early-morning awakening. Depression in women differs from depression in men in several ways: • Depression in women may occur earlier, last longer, be more likely to reoccur, be more likely to be associated with stressful life events, and be more sensitive to seasonal changes • Women are more likely to experience guilty feelings and attempt suicide, although they actually commit suicide less often than men • Depression in women is more likely to be associated with anxiety disorders, especially panic and phobic symptoms, and eating disorders • Depressed women are less likely to abuse alcohol and other drugs • Symptoms of depression in MEN include: • Persistent sad, anxious, or "empty" mood. • Feelings of hopelessness, pessimism. • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness. • Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities that were once enjoyed, including sex. • Decreased energy, fatigue, being "slowed down" If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session

I am suffering from depression and I can't bear please help me please I cannot wait any movement please help me please.
If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. 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.

I am a drug addicted please tell me the negative things of this drug called MDMA. Please advise.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
The most serious short-term physical health risks of mdma are hyperthermia and dehydration.cases of life-threatening or fatal hyponatremia (excessively low sodium concentration in the blood) have developed in mdma users attempting to prevent dehydration by consuming excessive amounts of water without replenishing electrolytes.even without excessive water intake, mdma can increase water retention through syndrome of inappropriate antidiuretic hormone secretion,[28] so that water intake must be restricted (unless heavy sweating occurs).non-primary source needed the resultant hypervolumia can simultaneously cause both dilutional hyponatremia (which can cause seizures) and hypertension (which can cause stroke). In the case of excessive water intake, salt can be administered to increase osmotic pressure, but while this improves hyponatremia it can also further worsen hypertension. Both are associated with a sensation of intracranial pressure, either in the brain's arteries as in hypertension, or in the brain's tissues as in hyponatremia.[medical citation needed] the immediate adverse effects of mdma use can include: dehydration hyperthermia bruxism (grinding and clenching of the teeth) increased wakefulness or insomnia increased perspiration and sweating increased heart rate and blood pressure loss of appetite nausea and vomiting diarrhea erectile dysfunction mydriasis after-effects the effects that last up to a week following cessation of moderate mdma use include: physical trismus loss of appetite insomnia psychological anxiety or paranoia depression irritability impulsiveness restlessness memory impairment anhedonia long-term effects mdma use has been shown to produce brain lesions, a form of brain damage, in the serotonergic neural pathways of humans and other animals. in addition, long-term exposure to mdma in humans has been shown to produce marked neurotoxicity in serotonergic axon terminals. neurotoxic damage to axon terminals has been shown to persist for more than two years.brain temperature during mdma use is positively correlated with mdma-induced neurotoxicity in animals. adverse neuroplastic changes to brain microvasculature and white matter also seem to occur in humans using low doses of mdma. reduced gray matter density in certain brain structures has also been noted in human mdma users.in addition, mdma has immunosuppressive effects in the peripheral nervous system, but pro-inflammatory effects in the central nervous system. babies of mothers who used mdma during pregnancy exhibit impaired motor function at 4 months of age, which may reflect either a delay in development or a persistent neurological deficit. mdma also produces persistent cognitive impairments in human users. impairments in multiple aspects of cognition, including memory, visual processing, and sleep have been noted in humans; the magnitude of these impairments is correlated with lifetime ecstasy or mdma usage. memory is significantly impacted by ecstasy use, which is associated with marked impairments in all forms of memory (e. G, long-term, short-term, working). dependence and withdrawal some studies indicate repeated recreational users of mdma have increased rates of depression and anxiety, even after quitting the drug.other meta analyses have reported possibility of impairment of executive functioning. approximately 60% of mdma users experience withdrawal symptoms, including, but not limited to: fatigue, loss of appetite, depression, and trouble concentrating. tolerance is expected to occur with consistent mdma use.
