I'm 23 year old female. Past one mnth I'm not happy and I couldn't concentrate on my work. Because a guy cheated me and used physically now saying he can't say to parents and want to be like friends. Im feeling like to quite the job and want to suicide. please help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Suicide or feeling depressed is not a solution to your problem and you try depression control as I say here .10 Natural Depression Treatments Being depressed can make you feel helpless. But Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day. As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression, Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning. 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression, You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again.

what I can say you only is that this is not end of the world.We have to come across many failures in life.Life is very harsh but a true human being is that who make these failures his power and makes history.Make her realise her mistake and this you can do by a pure mind and hard work.Dont have a grudge against her in mind and think that God has some other more important work for you.These failures always teach us and I am sure you must have got a lesson by this breakup.Fix that lesson in your mind and move forward as if nothing had happened.Myself is a homoeopathic doctor and I will recommend you following homoeopathic medicine to take alongwith IGNATIA AMARA 1M ( Dr Reckeweg) Drink 5 drops every 3rd day P.L.30 (Dr Reckeweg) Ask the homoeopathic pharmacist to prepare this medicine in 30 number globules and quantity 2 drahm.Start taking 4 tab 3 times daily.

Is cigarette smoking is good for health or not.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum ,like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. 31st May is ?World No Tobacco Day? Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality. Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 10% of all cardiac deaths.ncer or asthmatic lung diseases.

Mr. Lybrate-user, if hypothyroidism is well controlled then efforts to reduce weight will be successful. For adequate control of hypothyroidism tsh levels should be around 3 to 4 mili units/l. So please check the levels and inform. Only workout is not going to help, there has to be a properly planned diet, that provides calories based on your ideal body weight and workouts. Should avoid high fatty foods, junk foods, sweetened aerated drinks and pastries. Also refrain from alcohol and smoking. Workout has to be intense, preferably under guidance. Taks for the question.

Hi i am Confused between love and infatuation as now I am living in live in relationship and too many adjustments and responsibilities and it's not the same anymore. Wanna test myself if I actually love my guy. Or it was just attraction.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Love is when you care very strongly and very deeply about another person. When you love someone, you are there to support them, you work together to solve problems, you’re willing to stand by this person in good times and bad, and you wish nothing more than to watch and help this person grow. Infatuation (also referred to as “lust”) has a few great things going for it too. Infatuation gives you goosebumps. It puts that silly smile on your face that you can't seem to shake. It fills your mind with wonderful daydreams. And, of course, many love relationships start out as infatuation. It all sounds so wonderful that we may not see the problem when infatuation is mistaken for love. But it's a big problem, and that's why it’s so important to understand the differences between love and infatuation. Here they are: Love develops gradually over time. Infatuation occurs almost instantaneously. Love can last a long time. It becomes deeper and more powerful over time. Infatuation is powerful, but short-lived. Love accepts the whole person, imperfections and all. Infatuation flourishes on perfection – you have an idealized image of your partner and you only show your partner your good side. Love is more than physical attraction. Infatuation focuses on the physical. Love is energizing. Infatuation is draining. Love improves your overall disposition. Infatuation brings out jealousy and obsessiveness. It causes you to neglect other relationships. Loves survives arguments. Infatuation glosses over arguments. Love considers the other person. Infatuation is selfish. Love is being in love with a person. Infatuation is being in love with love.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Hi sir I want to improve my stamina and memory strength please tell me best mesisuna.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts (" leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a" morning person" or" evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Hi I am going through a tough life condition. My husband isn't living with me from past one and a half year. He wants a divorce. I am living alone with a small kid. I am working as a teacher which is very demanding. I find it hard to remember things. I miss out on important dates and timeline. I don't feel like exercising and suffer from back ache after work. I feel confused too many a times and fear future.

YOur diseases and confusion is from the tension of your husband asking for divorce and you seek the help of elders and solve it so that your mind will be calm and your confusions will go away.

What are the exercises and nutrition can I have for doing sharping the memory or cognitive.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user umar, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. You may consult a psychologist online or in person for advice, counseling and therapy. Take care.

You analyse your behaviour in professional and personal life situations. Knowingly or unknowingly you are doing some mistakes. Analyse the mistakes and take further steps to repeat again. Mistakes every one do. But punishment is not the solution. We should not repeat again in life situations. This is called maturity. Even successful people are also have this type of thoughts. Some stage we lost everything. But we should take further steps it should be repeated. Better to analyse yourself or take the help of your closed once. Love and share your feelings to closed once. Do not be alone. Be friendly and be sociable. Man is a social animal. Not a single person. We cannot do anything alone. Life means system of togetherness. Do not think about suicide. Be think always in a positive manner. Be happy and be friendly. Enjoy every movement of life. Ok best of luck.

I have mild anxiety disorder. I face fearful dreams most of the days hence my sleep is not comfortable. What to be done? Pls help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have not been dealing with your fears for a long time, perhaps. All unexpressed feelings will find some other way of expressing itself in the body. These will lead to psychological problems of various kinds. You need to be trained in dealing with emotions and retain it as an ongoing process in life. Meet a counselor and get some guidance in this regard. In the meantime, please follow an exercise regiment, eat well and keep good company. Make your last meal, as far as possible, a pure carbohydrate meal. Eat early and make it a small meal too. Avoid all foods that cause flatulence. Sleep on your left ear most of the night. Every time you feel fear talk to someone about it. Do some deep breathing, with your left nostril shut, and you will immediately calm down. If it gets too much, place your index finger on your shut lips and puff up your cheeks tightly with air and hold it for some time. The back pressure of the air will press the vagus nerve at the rear of the throat and immediately reduce the heart rate to calm you down. I am only suggesting this because you say the anxiety is mild. If it is worse, please visit a psychiatrist.

We all have ups and downs in life. Probably you are not very happy with your life, right now. But please remember, that change is inevitable part of life and this situation of yours will change. Taking anti-depressants or painkillers are not advisable, unless prescribed by a Doctor. These medicines have their own side effects. Even if you don't see any harmful effects on your body and mind now, you will start seeing these effects soon. These medicines will give you short term relief but in the long run you will have more difficulties. If you are looking for long term and permanent solution to your problems then, please take an appointment with a Counsellor. You need to open up. You need to give an outlet to you bottled up feelings, which are probably numbing your mind.

Dear lybrate-user, stress disorder can cause serious health problems if it is left untreated. Treatment is always given to the person rather than the stress itself. No one can avoid the stress around them and therefore they will be taught how to live with the stress itself. Understanding the stress and passionately dealing with the stressor is the best process. Life style coaches and psychologists will train you. There are many psychologists you can contact even online. Do consult a psychologist. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, you have multiple health issues. Your doctor must have prescribed the medicines after checking all your physical parameters. So if you wish to stop the allopathy medicine, then discuss it with your doctor. If you think the medicines are not working for you, he/she may change the medicines. And you may approach an ayurvedic doctor after consultation with your allopathy doctor. Allopathy and ayurvedic medicines - both have their advantages and disadvantages. The doctors will guide you. You may also consult a counsellor for your anxiety and depression. Medication alogwith behaviour therapy works very well, which the counsellor will help you with. Take care.
