Tell-Tale Signs of Depression!

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, DPM
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Tell-Tale Signs of Depression!

Feeling sad is one thing, but a persistent feeling of sadness can overtake your life, and is anything but unhealthy. Depression is not something to be ashamed of. It is a common condition, that can be treated if identified early. 

Treatment of depression usually involves a combination of medication and psychotherapy. The effects of depression vary from person to person, but some symptoms are commonly experienced in all cases. These symptoms can be categorised as physical changes, behavioural changes, cognitive changes and emotional changes. 

  1. Physical symptoms of depression: Feeling tired all the time is one of the most common symptoms of depression. The person may also have persistent headaches and sporadic muscle pains. Insomnia or sleep troubles are often associated with depression. This can further lead to significant fatigue, and a vicious cycle ensues. Sleep troubles can also lead to the formation of dark circles under the eyes, and make the patient’s skin look dull. Patients suffering from depression often find themselves losing weight due to a significant loss of appetite, or find themselves snacking excessively, and hence, putting on weight. 
  2. Behavioural symptoms of depression: Depression can make a person withdraw from his or her friends and family and become a recluse. A loss of interest in activities that would usually excite the person is another characteristic symptom of depression. This condition can make a person unable to concentrate or focus on work and other activities, and hence, may affect productivity in school or the workplace. Depression can also make a person rely heavily on alcohol, sedatives etc. 
  3. Cognitive symptoms of depression: Depression can make a person feel worthless, and leave them with a bleak outlook on life. A depressed person will often find himself or herself criticising themselves harshly for things that may or may not be their fault. This can make them increasingly more agitated or irritable. Depressed people may also turn to violence and trigger reckless behaviour such as gambling, substance abuse, reckless driving or taking up a rash sport. 
  4. Emotional symptoms of depression: Feeling sad for no reason characterises depression. This sadness can overwhelm a person and make them feel guilty about indulging in anything that could make them happier. It can also make the person lose confidence in himself/herself, thus making him/her indecisive about simple decisions. Other emotions that are commonly experienced by depressed people include irritability, frustration, guilt, and disappointment. 

A frequent but ignored symptom is thoughts of self-harm or suicide, leading to deliberate self-harm/suicide attempts. If you or someone you know suffers from any of the above symptoms, you may need help! Visit your Psychiatrist at the earliest to have yourself evaluated, and started on an appropriate course of management.

Desire to stop drinking is must. If you think you noe want to stop drinking, you are half way through. I suggest you to attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings as soon as possible.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I am 25 years old male. I think I am suffering from generic depression. What should I do?

Psychologist,
Please see a psychiatrist/ counsellor in your city. Take care of your stress and eat healthy. Exercise regularly to keep your heart rate up. Meditate and do pranayama to increase oxygen intake which automatically reduces anxiety and stress. Do away with time wasting activities and incorporate things that will bring harmony and meaning into your living and life. Counselling helps a lot in dealing with stress and depression.

Interaction between Family and Couples - What to Expect?

Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
Interaction between Family and Couples - What to Expect?

Marriage is a very tricky relationship. On one hand, you are happy to have found that one person you want to spend the rest of your life with and on the other, you are overwhelmed with the number of people that are going to be a part of your new family. While this is true for both people in the marriage, a lot would depend on the final living situation. It is a different experience if the couple is going to be staying in close proximity to their families as compared to when all the family members are living together under the same roof.

There are mixed feelings of anxiety and curiosity, especially if it is an arranged marriage, where the number of interactions with your partner itself are limited. With the changing scenario in relationships, there are some families (extended family) who you end up meeting only during family occasions.

Also, the relationship dynamics with the in-laws changes for the couple. Let us look deeper into how different it is for the everyone and how to manage them.

In most situations in Indian marriages, the woman moves into her husband’s place, thereby, there is an increase in the number of people she interacts with. If it is a love marriage, the chance of meeting the immediate family members are always high. However, in more formal set-ups, the woman would have hardly interacted with her spouse’s family members. In these cases, understanding their expectations and living up to them is a big challenge. In these cases, it is essential for the members of the family to effectively communicate with each other and discuss the issues at hand. This helps in setting and aligning expectations.

  • With changing lifestyle trends, the expectations have also changed, both for the woman and her new family. It is therefore very essential to understand the little things that form a part of a daily routine.
  • It is also very important to set expectations on special occasions like festivals and family functions, as the expectations are high and the chance of  disappointment is also higher.
  • For the man, again, it depends on how the set-up is after the marriage. If the families know each other, the interaction is much smoother or else, it takes some time for all the people  involved to get to know each other.

All said and done, both have to be mentally prepared to embrace the new members that come with the relationship. Talking to a common friend or even acounsellor can help, if required. The key is to set and manage expectations so that disappointments are avoided. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

Hello, thanks for sharing your concern with us. I want to know if you have tried to create a schedule or keep a target or a goal for every day. I think you get anxious because you are not able to do anything throughout the day. That is causing fear in your heart. Probably, if you have not tried keeping a schedule, then can you try that. Like start with small goals or target everyday and see if this helps you or gets you motivated .Sometimes having a weekly plan also helps.) Thanks.

Hello- Chronic depression affects every part of daily life, including sex. It curbs sex drive, yet sex can boost your mood and is important for relationships. And some depression medicines can curb your libido. early ejaculation can also be due to over masturbation habit. whatever the cause, it can be cured.
