I lost my one year due to some issues. Which I can not handel and I feel very depression. How can I get out from it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Hi, I am 26 and my getting married this November. The problem that i am facing is of anger. I get angry a lot and that too without any reason. Sometimes i feel like i'm exploding in my mind. I want to get out of it. I really want to get rid of this. I want to feel happy. I love the person m getting married to but i burst out to him all the time. Sometimes i feel like i do not want to go home. I really want to know what is happening in my mind. I get irritated easily with the small issues. M just not happy with the behavior of my family. I feel like they don't love me. I feel like ignored at my own house. Please help me or suggest me what to do to feel positive. I want to get rid of this anger.

First of all, don?t look at anger as a bad feeling. It is a good feeling and a very important emotion. The problem you are having is that it seems to rise in you fast and without any reason; and of course the inappropriate expression of it. But in your query, you have stated the possible reason: your family doesn?t show much affection towards you and because of that you may be suffering rejection from them. How true this is I do not know but several times I have found that there is a problem in perception. Since you are getting angry without reason it seems to suggest, that you may have experienced the rejection a long time ago, if it is true. Let us assume that it is true, then you can have a talk with them and find out how valid this feeling is and why they did that to you. Give them actual instances when they behaved like that. This is one of the most important suggestions I have to give you: you must express your anger just like I suggested ? talk to them about your anger. There may be a lot of sadness underlying the anger, and that will have to be dealt with as a second round after the expression of anger. If they are the ones who have arranged for this marriage, then they have done you a good turn by finding someone whom you can love! But this anger of yours won?t help. Remember, today many marriages have been breaking up due to the low tolerance level of the man and the woman, among other things. Anger can destroy relations. My advice to you is to talk with a counselor and get directions and advice about emotions and how to express them. Anger expressed well, will bring terrific results. Of course you cannot get angry without reason. The counselor will help you identify the reason, which I think is about rejection, anyway. Vigorous exercise will expend the energy related to anger but it will not actually deal with it.

I was in a relation for last 4 years. But last year we broke up and now I am totally disturbed as I cannot move on in life. Always she is in my mind and I cannot concentrate on my career and sometimes I feel to commit suicide. Please suggest what should I do in such condition.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand what you are going through. Remember, its a temporary phase we all go through such stages like break up and we all survive. Committing suicide for someone who is no more there in your life will not serve any purpose anyway its the mot absurd act. Build your career and live for your parents, lot of girls will enter your life do not waste time on past.

Dear lybrateuser. Memory and mind power depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. Your brain stores information according what you perceive and it also depends on past experience. Understanding is the key. The more better understand, the more better will be the storage and retention. Once the brain retain it properly and stores in someplace where it can be retrieved easily, the more easy for it to recollect. So the basic step in remembrance is understanding. Make sure you understand whatever you study. There are" effective learning techniques" to help you. Physical exercise, outdoor games, indoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc also play an important part in improving brain power. Include green leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts etc in your daily diet. Make sure to play brain games like sudoku atleast once in a week. All the above, together, contributes to keep your brain sharp and healthy. Take care.

I am 20 years old with 4. 9 height girl now a days I am getting depressed. how to overcome this?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
We would need more information like since when, depressed about what, what are your symptoms etc to help you. Yet it will be good if you see a counsellor and psychiatrist in your city. However, in depression, it is suggested that you look at the positive side of things, find meaning in whatever you consider as a loss to you, exercise a lot, take a walk in the sun, have friends and a social life who are funny, cheerful and progressive, eat healthy food, sleep on time and get up on time, have a daily plan of activities and make sure that you achieve most of it. Negative thinking needs to be challenged with counter thoughts that bring in contradicting evidence. Take support of your family or friends to come out of depression as its difficult to remain self motivated. Yoga, meditation, ayurveda, homeopathy also help a lot in depression without any side effects.

I am 30 yr old male suffering from anxiety from last 6 years. As I know that anxiolytic drugs have side effects and it's withdrawal symptoms can make the anxiety more worse than before, how one can be treated with this kind of medication? I am trying to control it by keeping myself busy, doing yoga, pranayam but can't avoid symptoms associated with this disorder. Is there any alternative treatment available to cure anxiety?

Dear , anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Yoga and pranayama are very good. In addition to that psychotherapy and awareness also helps. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety.

My fiance is having a best friend and he proposed her in December 2014 she had recently separated from her boyfriend. Both my fiance and that girl are school friends. She initially said yes and said he would be perfect for her. But later in Feb 2015 she said she is not getting feelings for him and she was in love with someone else. He insisted that she should take time she behaved rudely with him but he waited and said take your time. This continued till December 2105 then he accepted her as friend he continues to be her best friend. She behaves very rudely sometimes with him and he even cries for her. But still he thinks she is her best friend and he will take care of her. Then in Feb 2016 family introduced me to him and we said yes to each other after 2-3 meeting he told me about his past and he said she is still her best friend because she is very nice girl. He was happy that he has me and her in his life two angels in his life. Later on I found that he gets upset if she says something to him and he cries and he fears that she may leave if he will something to her he always pleases her and gift her to make her remember him. He said to me she is important in my life. He loves me I can see that but he sometimes behave rudely with me but he never behaves in that way with her. I told him that she is important in her life more than me but he said he loves me more than her. I told him that you won't want to accept the truth. He loves me he cares for me whenever he behaves rudely he says sorry. But I don't know what is happening with him and it will be going to difficult after marriage and I accepted their relation because I know he wants both in her life but sometimes I feel it is going to change my nature after marriage. I told him to consult a psychiatrist. He said he needs no psychiatrist and said no one cares for his feelings.

Dear Lybrate user thanks for the query ,Its good that both of you love and understand each other, its obvious that your fiance have soft feeling for that girl and its more than normal friendship, you must talk to your fiance about this matter ,you should give him some space and time on the other hand you should also consider the bonding between them otherwise it can be problem for you in future. There should be balance in every relation ,if at any time again that girl will say yes to your fiance then? Just consider on all points before marriage .if you need my help you can contact me .take care.

I am always in stress. Sometimes very strange and dangerous thoughts comes in my mind. Like come infrount of car or something which have no sense. The thing which has not happened I got afraid of that that if it has been happened than what have happened. I am very upset from this problem.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
Hello lybrate-user, our mind is like a monkey and many thoughts will come which make sense and some don't make sense at all. It is important to train the mind to think rationally, optimistically and healthy so that we can be more productive and peaceful in our life. For this purpose, I suggest that you remember the reality that you didn't come in front of any car and you are safe. Even if you do come in front of the car, you have enough mind to protect yourself by running away or telling the driver to slow down. Which means that you are in control and not helpless. 2. Thus reminding this yourself when ever you think irrationally, will help control the anxiety and fear and replace with positive, confidence and optimistic thoughts and feelings.

I am suffering from stammering from the age of 5 now I am 18 but still I haven't cured it. But this time I am pursuing professional courses therefore I need to get it correct but I can't pay fees of speech therapists as they charge in thousands a month. Therefore please suggest me ways to cure it at home itself.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, the best option is stammer therapy. Take care.

You must be under some stress. Meet with a counselor and do sort that out soon. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic 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 nights 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 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. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. 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. There is a new exercise called super brain yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hands thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Drinking alcohol may be unsafe for some people, because it can interact with some medications.

The cleveland clinic mentions these examples:

Aspirin and alcohol may increase the risk of stomach bleeding.
Antihistamines may make you very drowsy when combined with alcohol.
Large amounts of the painkiller acetaminophen can cause liver damage when combined with alcohol.
Some laxatives and cough syrups already contain alcohol.
Some antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications, painkillers and sleeping pills may cause serious interactions when combined with alcohol.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

My aunt is very sweet and loving. But on the contrary she gets violent even at 60 and hardly can control her anger. At times she gets very depressed about life and actually it is increasing day by day and she keeps ruminating over the past and recalling the past unpleasant memories. She feels alienated but it is not so. It is in her thought process. Everyone in the family loves n cares for her but she feels insecure. And one thing lastly she gets panicky about petty matters.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your aunt is becoming old now and life becomes more difficult at this age. It becomes difficult for a person, to see that the body and mind is getting older. Older people have lesser patience. Because of this she might be feeling frustrated and sad. She might be having some health issues, which may be making her insecure and angry. Encourage her to talk about her past life experiences and when she is ruminating over it, validate her feelings. Try to understand the situations from her view point. All she needs is more love and respect. Give her responsibilities that she can shoulder. Involve her in family decisions. Make her feel important. Talk to her about "letting go" of things so that she will not keep worrying unnecessarily. Encourage her to pursue some hobbies or activities she could not undertake till now. Encourage her to have her own social circle. She needs to understand that if she becomes more positive and flexible about life, she can still enjoy life to the fullest and ultimately her anger will reduce.

If you find your symptoms recurring after stopping medication, it is an indication that your treatment is incomplete. Consult your treating psychiatrist and continue the medication as prescribed by them. Premature termination of treatment can lead to relapse, worsening of symptoms, incomplete resolution of symptoms and even resistance to treatment. Always take medication as prescribed for a specific period of time. Medication can be tapered, but only by the doctor, and only when there is significant improvement. Tapering is done very gradually.
