Keep listening to sanskrit shlokas and reciting them. Many times stammering is a result of low self confidence. You need to be aware of your strengths and try to improve upon your skills. You may take an appointment with a counsellor.

Many Faces of Depression : Could that unexplained headache be Depression?

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Many Faces of Depression : Could that unexplained headache be Depression?
Shruti (name changed) aged 25 years, BA, homemaker and mother of two kids was a good cook and managed her house to perfection, much to anybody's envy until one day she started experiencing sudden severe headache and backache.
These symptoms made her incapable of carrying out her household duties as efficiently as she used to earlier.
Concerned with her pain & apparent symptoms severity, her husband took her to a general physician who prescribed a battery of tests including MRI Brain only to find no abnormality.
Attending Physician prescribed some multivitamin syrups & pain killer medicines & also tried to assure the family that NOTHING was wrong with Shruti.
However, she continued to complain of body aches and headaches, with resultant chaos on home management front compelling her husband to hire a maid to look after all the work including health of Shruti.
Shruti started feeling guilty about this & she started remaining aloof and also had trouble sleeping at night.
Frustrated with the added financial pressure and Shruti's ever increasing health complains, her husband accused her of faking it in order to avoid doing work.
Her in-laws added fuel to the fire citing it was all a drama. This further added to Shruti's sense of guilt and her appetite significantly reduced. 4 months after onset of these symtoms, Shruti lost 10kg weight.
She started remaining on the bed for hours and hardly interacted with anyone. She also started voicing ideas of ending her life in order to relieve everyone off her responsibility & enabling them to lead a happy life!
Now concerned, her parents took the matter in their hands & took her to a psychiatrist.
At the psychiatrist’s clinic, after detailed evaluation , Shruti was diagnosed to be suffering from depression (severe without psychotic symptoms) and the psychiatrist pointed out that the headaches & unexplained body aches were a the starting points of depression itself. She was started on medications and counselling therapy and within 2 months time she recovered completely & once again happily assumed her normal HOME MINISTERS ROLE!
Depression is one of the most common mental disorder and seen in every 4 out of 100 persons as per World health organization (WHO) data
When one thinks of depression; a sad, tearful face comes to mind. But depression is more than just that. unexplained headaches, body pains, sleeping difficulties are often the presenting complaints of depression. Other presentations of depression are chronic tiredness, joint pain,back pain, gastrointestinal problems including frequent acidity, indigestion, appetite changes etc. without any probable detectable physical cause
Depression contributes greatly to the disability caused by headache and backaches. More than 50% of patients with depression who visit general practitioners complain only of physical symptoms and in most cases, these symptoms include pain. If physicians test all pain patients for depression, they might discover 60% of currently undetected depression in their OPD.
Complete Recovery from an episode of depression is possible & achievable to everyone after proper treatment with medicines, counselling sessions & lifestyle modifications!
Next time while visiting your general Physician for any of aforementioned pain symptoms, do ask.....''AM I SUFFERING FROM DEPRESSION? DO I NEED TO SEE A PSYCHIATRIST? AM I RECEIVING ANY MEDICINE WHICH SHOULD BE TAKEN ONLY UNDER SUPERVISION OF A PSYCHIATRIST??''
Remember, Mental Illnesses are TREATABLE!!

I am 68 years old and having sound health, my son and daughter are well settled and they are enjoying their life, my wife is quite wise and social lady, well caring tome and home. I remain in private job life long on higher position and good salary. Still I am giving consultancy to different industries and also doing my own share work. I have no worry regarding expenditure. But I always remain doubtful in my mind, always negative thoughts comes in my mind, many dreams are coming in my sleep so I feels tired when I got up. Due to this slowly I am becoming short tempered and causes of disputes between me and wife without any reason.

You are indeed a very gracious man: you have taken total responsibility for troubling your wife without proper reason. Congratulations sir, not many people will admit it like you have done. I doff my hat to you and may your tribe increase. Now for the matter at hand: as we age we become more and more tired and our defenses start to lower further. At this time we become irritable with even trivial matters. Your tolerance will become lower and lower over time. Your disturbed sleep will definitely contribute to the frayed nerves even more. Sound sleep of at least 8 hours is a must for adequate rest for the brain and the body: less than 6 hours is the most significant cause of precipitating nearly 86 diseases! to avoid disturbed dreams you need to sleep as far as possible on your left ear. Eat less of flatulence causing foods at night; mainly pulses and fermented foods. Eat dinner early. If it is possible to reduce the time in your work involvement, it is ideally recommended. Explain all this to your darling wife because her understanding will help both of you. Besides as we age, we do become less secure and fear the slightest of things because we know our limitations now. It may help, if it does not disturb them too much for either your daughter or son to return home to offer a change of scene in the house, periodically. I hope you are also exercising regularly. This is extremely important too.

Hi lybrate-user! I appreciate your decision of quitting alcohol. Actually speaking you can take one week time to make your body fit like intake of lots of fruits and vegetables and then join martial arts, which would actually help you to become more stronger and healthier and would help you to continue martial arts training for you. If you are interested to contact me for further details regarding the same or any kind of problem you can either chat or call me. Take care.

My memory power is weak. Class topic I have to remember. And my friends learn in class only. How to improve it.

General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

What's the best way to quit smoking. My Friend didn't want to quit it at first place as she loves to smoke. Now I have persuaded her to quit it. Please help what should I do to make her quit smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have done a wonderful job convincing her to give up smoking so easily. But now is the tough task. Any way, she cannot stop easily, if she herself does not want to. It must ideally come from her own desire to stop. You can force her to stop by admitting her in a rehabilitation center, if they also do not allow smoking (unfortunately many centers dole out daily quota of cigarettes). If you admit her in one of the naturopathy institutes, she will have to abstain from the consumption and that will help her to quit. Do not take her out for at least one month or more. When she comes back keep her under vigil and monitor her so that neither she nor other domestic staff will pick cigarettes for her. She may experience a spurt in eating or drinking juices etc. Let her indulge in those foods for some time, only. Put her on an exercise program, and have a thorough medical check up to identify any other damage to her system. If she is unwilling to visit a counselor, get one to come home and talk to her. She can be coaxed to maintain her abstinence under the guidance of a counselor. Make her do meditation; make her stick to a regular schedule of activities, have her involved in interesting and responsible activities. Educate her about all the harmful effects of tobacco smoke and the damage it brings others in the house who smoke both the side-stream smoke and the second-hand smoke. Acupuncture is excellent treatment too.

I am a very emotional person. I get easily hurt and I cannot give back as I feel that it would hurt them. Overall I end up getting hurt. How should I change this.

Master of Clinical Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Psychological Counselling

Many times, when you suppress your emotions, you feel stressed out and emotionally overwhelmed. Your thinking and actions are not matching to each other. Learn to express your feelings in a neutral way so that no one will get hurt. Learn to frame sentences pointing out the facts not the persons. I. E. Instead of'you make me angry, you can frame it as'i feel angry when---- happens.

Relax, dear lybrate user. I think you are exaggerating small things into greater proportions. Of course, I understand that your father must not have uttered that word even when you are alone. The only thing you can do with this is to forgive him and explain him how you hurt because of him, and also make a humble reqeuest not to do it again. Then, the people in front of whom your father used that word are busy with their life businness and issues. In fact, both your father and other people must have forgotten that incident. Moreover, people are more aware than ever before that human beings are equally susceptible to have psychological problems as they have physical diseases. Hence, the social stigma attached with mental illness is loosing its value, so your worry about all these things are only waste of time and energy. Since you are only 21, you must be an unmarried. Then, where is the necessity to use tadafil for erectile dysfunction. If you tried sex with a woman and failed, there may arise a question of erectile dysfunction. I think it might be your self-medication which is not a healthy trend. One or 2 sessions of counseling will make a difference, I feel, get an appoint with a psychlogical counsellor at the earliest.

Hello, I am Dr Vikass Khanna. I’m working as a counsellor and hypnotist in Gurgaon Delhi. Today I will be talking about depression.

What is depression?

We have all been depressed sometimes in our lives. We’ve all been through ups and downs.

What is clinical depression?

CD is a very vague and broad clubbing of thought patterns. But does depression have a substance, absence of a state you want to be in. Let’s go to the roots of drips. You never visited the roots. The value system of our society which tells us to be someone to be happy to be kind, to be successful is the root of depression. We are always in a state of being someone, be somewhere, we have to be kind, to be more religious, be somewhere. Somewhere where one is not. There lies the conflict of what you are and what you want to be. Life is paly of polar opposites. You have expectations. You will have frustrations. They are eternally linked. If you don’t know the definition of happiness there’s no unhappiness. So why does one want to be in a futuristic state always, all the time, to be someone. As per the culture happiness, expecting something or the other all the time.

Now how do you manage depression?

Either pop a pill, take anti-depressants, which are 3 basically serotonin reuptake inhibitors. They inhibit the serotonin uptake. The chemicals they act till your taking them. In the brain circuits, a lot of adverse effects associated.

What is the other kind of motivation? 

Diversion, meditation, which are again suppressions. This suppressing kind of thought, Will you get rid of depression by that? Can you stop struggling to be free of depression? It is your mind which tells that you’re not happy. you’re sad. You should be somewhere. You should be like this. The same mind tells you to be free of depression. It is a moment, a mental moment, a though moment. Both the things can bring about that change.

Can you be depression free by struggling?

To get rid of it. Or increasing the depression like falling into the trap of depression. Can u let go of this struggle? Can you revisit the roots of depression? Expectations that ideal state, you want to be in. ideal state.

For any help enquiry, you can either come through the platform of lybrate or you can contact me directly on my mobile no. I’m available in Gurgaon and Delhi on appointments.

Thank you

Change your study method. First read aloud, then write on paper what you have read then revise again without seeing the paper. Practice this for every topic.
