You need to manage your time well If you are feeling burnt out take leave from work for a few days even if that means deduction in pay. See where you are losing out time. Plan the day carefully. See how you can use free time during work hours. If still problem persists medicine can help you although it will need medical supervision. But it is easy to start and will improve how you feel, improve energy as well as efficiency.

How to get rid of the addiction of drinking? Will there be any problem if a person stops drinking if he has addiction of drinking. What will be the consequences?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Alcohol withdrawal syndrome can be a life-threatening condition in people who have been drinking heavily and then either stop or significantly reduce their alcohol consumption. Symptoms can begin as early as two hours after the last drink, persist for weeks, and range from mild anxiety and shakiness to severe complications, such as seizures and delirium tremens (also called DTs). The death rate from DTs -- which are characterized by confusion, rapid heartbeat, and fever -- is estimated to range from 1% to 5%. Because alcohol withdrawal symptoms can rapidly worsen, it's important to seek medical attention even if symptoms are seemingly mild. Appropriate alcohol withdrawal treatments can reduce the risk of developing withdrawal seizures or DTs. It's especially important to see a doctor if you have other health conditions such as infections, heart disease, lung disease, or a history of seizures. If seizures, fever, severe confusion, hallucinations, or irregular heartbeats occur, take the patient to an emergency room. With regard to quitting alcohol you need to follow these recommendations: You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

I am having persistent sad and empty feelings.I get lost in my own thoughts,difficulty in concentrating and memorising although I was good at them earlier.I don't know what it is kinda complex.I am also most of the time fatigued, even when have sleep of 7 hours.My appetite is good. Am I having any kind of problems or it is only due to hectic schedule?

Psychologist,
A hectic schedule could be one reason. Other reasons could be anything that is stressing you out. Feelings of sadness come from somethings that have not worked out for you in the past. Stress and worry tension have this effect on the mind that you cannot concentrate or remember. Do meet a counsellor to get your sadness and emptiness addressed.

I don't want to be a gay. But I m interested to men? what I have to do?

MBBS, Msc Psychiatry, DPM
Psychiatrist,
I don't want to be a gay. But I m interested to men? what I have to do?
Well, it's okay that you are interested in men. This means either you have more female members in your family or you have less unisex friends. It is natural that anybody is attracted towards handsome men and beautiful ladies. One another interpretation of this behaviour may be that you unconsciously feel uncomfortable with women due to whatever reasons ; or you feel inferior at some issues. All you do is to boost up your self confidence. Once you would start feeling handsome and confident internally you would be behaving with everybody normally. Don't think that others are looking at you and what they would be saying, instead think that you are looking at others and you are awesome. I hope this works for you.

How to fight from depression. What is the cure for depression and negative thinking. please tell me.

Masters in Clinical Psychology & Certified Cognitive Behaviour Therapy Practioner, Certified Neuro linguistic programming Practioner, Masters in Clinical Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Child and ADolescent Counselling
Psychologist, Pune
How to fight from depression. What is the cure for depression and negative thinking. please tell me.
1. Practice Mindfulness A depressed mind tends to mull over all that is wrong and worries unnecessarily about all the negative possibilities that may emerge in the future. This negative thought cycle reinforces misery and is not helpful in managing to overcome depression. Mindfulness involves focusing on the present moment and is a skill that needs to be practiced. More often than not, our brains are full of thoughts and focusing on the present moment seems unnatural for our minds. Practice on engaging your senses in the moment. Focus on touch, taste, sight, sound and smell. Engaging the senses leaves less time for worry. 2. Listen to Upbeat Music I have always thought of music as food for the soul. An upbeat tune can change an atmosphere instantly and create a more positive vibe. Listening to upbeat, happy music alters brain chemistry and can improve your mood. 3. Use Touch Science shows that touch therapies can help some people overcome depression, lower the stress hormone cortisol and increase the feel-good hormone oxytocin. Therapies to consider include acupuncture, acupressure, massage, reiki and reflexology. 4. Include Omega 3 Fatty Acids in Your Diet Research has shown that depressed people often lack a fatty acid known as EPA. Omega-3 fatty acids can also lower cholesterol and improve cardiovascular health. Get omega-3s through walnuts, flaxseed and oily fish like salmon or tuna. 5. Stop the Negative Self Talk In depression people tend to see the world in a negative way. When things go wrong they blame themselves and when they go right, they put it down to luck. Depression reinforces self doubt and feelings of worthlessness. Monitor your inner negative talk and make allowances for this type of thinking by reminding yourself that your thinking is that of a depressed person, not a healthy functioning person. Don’t take your thoughts seriously when you are feeling low. Acknowledge the thoughts but this doesn’t mean you have to believe them. Keep perspective. 6. Bide Your Time Accept that your mental state is not entirely balanced. During depression, we tend to see the negatives in everything and find it harder to be balanced about what is going on. Gently remind yourself that you are tuned into the ‘negativity channel’ and don’t listen to your thinking. It is definitely distorted when you are depressed. This idea alone can provide some comfort when the world appears bleak. It won’t last forever. Remind yourself that change is constant and that you won’t always feel this way. Be patient and do your best to look after yourself in the meantime. Eat well and get a decent amount of sleep. Say to yourself “This shall pass”. 7. Distract Yourself If possible, do your best to distract yourself from over thinking. Your thoughts are your enemy when depression sets in. Play with a pet or go for a walk. Read a book if you are able to concentrate or finish a puzzle. Do anything that takes your mind off your fears and worries. Keeping busy is an effective way to overcome depression. 8. Try Cognitive Therapy Cognitive therapy can be extremely useful in counteracting depression and is based on the principle that certain ways of thinking can trigger certain health problems, such as depression. The counselor helps you to understand your current thought patterns and identify any harmful or false ideas and thoughts that you have that can trigger depression or make it worse. The aim is to change your ways of thinking to avoid these ideas as well as help your thought patterns to be more realistic and helpful. 10. Write in a Journal A journal can work in two ways. Use it to write down fears and worries. Sometimes, having an outlet in this way can be soothing and ease your mind. Another good way to use a journal (I prefer this way) is to write at least five things down every day that you are grateful for. This forces us to think more positively and can help to remind us that things are never that bad. In a gratitude journal, you can write about anything that happened in the day that made you feel appreciative. A stranger smiling at you, the sun shining. Anything positive will do! 11. Connect with Friends This can be one of the hardest things to do when feeling depressed but it is one of the most rewarding activities. Force yourself to go out. Isolating oneself from others may seem a good idea but put a limit on it and then get out there again. This can have a huge positive effect on your mood. 12. Get Enough Sleep Sleep and mood are closely connected. Inadequate sleep can cause irritability and stress, while healthy sleep can enhance well-being. Studies have shown that even partial sleep deprivation has a significant effect on mood. Take steps to ensure adequate sleep will this will lead to improved mood and well-being. The quality of your sleep directly affects the quality of your waking life, including your mental sharpness, productivity, emotional balance, creativity, physical vitality, and even your weight. No other activity delivers so many benefits with so little effort so aim for between 7.5 and 9 hours sleep per night. 13. Forgive Others When we hold a grudge, we are the ones that feel the anger. The person whom we are angry with is probably merrily going about their business completely oblivious to your feelings. Don’t allow others to have this power over you. They have may have caused you grief in the past, try not to allow that grief to continue – it only affects you, not them. Find a way to forgive – they are not worthy of your time. Lighten the emotional load and you will improve your mood and help you to overcome depression. 14. Exercise Regular exercise has benefits for helping to overcome depression. Exercise releases endorphins which improve natural immunity and improve mood. Besides lifting your mood, regular exercise offers other health benefits, such as lowering blood pressure, protecting against heart disease, cancer and boosting self-esteem. Experts advise getting half an hour to an hour of moderate exercise, such as brisk walking at least three to four times per week. 15. Don’t give up Depression can make you want to hide away from the world and disappear. It’s okay to take some time out but give yourself a time limit and then do something productive to improve your mood. Depression can be well managed (I know this from personal experience) and there can be a wonderful life beyond depression. Hang in there and keep the faith.

Honest suggestion is to start meditation and re- discover yourself. Do deep breathing. Take palliative herbs which control the upgraded avels in mind e. G. Brahmi, jatamansi and few others. Do not take hypnotic medicines. Pl remember, depression and anger will not solve problems. You need counselling.

Exercise is the most holistic medicine and for depression, it is excellent to help the body produce natural antidepressants. To obtain this last benefit you must do vigorous exercise for at least 25 minutes. Apart from that, you must work with a counselor too and learn some new skills and techniques to cope with the daily challenges that you will face as a depressed person. There are plenty of supplements and medicines for these symptoms but they are all stress related and so some de-stressing work will definitely help in therapy.

Hello, If she is so bothering you, either get shifted somewhere else or practice yoga and meditation to increase your focus on studies rather than her behaviour. Yoga and meditation reduces the stress hormones and keep you fit and happy (in spite of going through toughest and unavoidable circumstances. Medication: Along with yoga and meditation, take homoeopathic medicine for relieving stress - Schwabe's Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once daily at night. Take them for 1 month.

If you are noticing a general lack of interest in things, people, and work around you then you are likely to be going through some sort of psychological stress or a difficult situation which you may not be conscious about. Reflect upon how the environment around you is like, how you are feeling about it, is your body also showing signs of lethargy, what has changed in these 6 months, how was it like 6 months before. Etc. If you can see what's bothering you then you can also work on helping yourself. If the issue persists then consult a counsellor for one to one counselling. Take care.

Please understand, the more you try to remove negative thinking, it creeps in again and again. Therefore, instead of pushing negative thinking away, you need to engage in creative activities, hobbies, games etc to divert yourself from the negative thinking (obsessive thinking). You can live today effectively with the help of rational emotive therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy. I will help you if you ask a private question to me in this portal. Remember, mind is made to think. Deciding whether to think positive or negative is up to you. God bless you.

Hello lybrate-user, what I understood is that you may be diagnosed for some kind of anxiety disorder and been prescribed citalopram. Citalopram is ssri i. E. Selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor. Usually serotonin defficinecy causes anxiety and depressive disorders. Citalopram helps to maintain serotonin level. However it takes 3-4 weeks to start proper action for these kind of drugs. So be patient and wait for this drug to work. Keep follow up with your doctor, she may increase the dose also depending on your response. Along with medication try some other relaxation techniques also. Good luck.

You are a medical student and you should have knowledge about your mind and behavior patterns. Negative thinking is always a problem. Your ambition is determined by your aptitude and attitude makes you do things ambitious. I think, you did not get the course you wanted to do, or you had some sort of disappointment in your life. Nobody is totally satisfied. You need to be satisfied with whatever you have and enjoy your life.
