I feel depression from some days and I am student of post graduation now a days I have no interest in study.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

There is a difference between love and obsession. Caring, having affectionate feelings and feeling attracted to someone is good. But asking that person to become your only source of emotional fulfilment is frustrating to both the partners. Every relationship has a risk of not working out. You need to live with that risk. You partners love and devotion to you cannot by guaranteed by anyone, including her. We trust by accepting that even if it fails, we will be okay. If you feel unhappy and dissatisfied in the relationship you can walk out. You have the option. But remember that everyone has their own way of loving and expressing love. If you find yourself too distressed then get professional counseling.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

My son aged 24 years under post graduate, not interested in studies, did not want to do job. Our financial condition is not so good. What will I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must make him do an aptitude test through a career guidance counselor and see if he has other talents which can be developed or explored. Do not just leave him in this condition. He could become dysfunctional and be a burden to you and society. Passivity is criminal and something, even if it is wrong, must be done soon. Do not give him an option of being idle. He must work and earn his own keep. You will be responsible for letting him live like this and after sometime, when he becomes used to this lifestyle, it will become near impossible to change him. You may also take him to a counselor and see if there is any other matter wrong with him and get him treated for the same.

You Need to Read This To Stay Away From Depression!

You Need to Read This To Stay Away From Depression!
You Need to Read This To Stay Away From Depression!

Depression robs people of their energy, ability to focus and pleasure. It makes them lose the joy of doing anything. In advanced cases, people may also lose their will to live. Depression is caused by factors that are mostly psychological, although a few can be physical. Certain habits and ways of living also lead to depression.

Here are few habits you must avoid.

1) Lack of Exercise: Being inactive affects your state of mind and can lead to a feeling of being depressed. If you are inactive, you also become lazy or tend to eat more, due to lack of anything better to do. This may be even more depressing.

SOLUTION: Exercise ensures your physical and mental well-being. Whenever you feel depressed, remember to exercise. Even a 20 minute brisk walking makes your brain produce the 'feel-good' chemicals, which keeps you active and in high spirits. If this not possible then just use the stairs instead of the lift, or take a few rounds of your block at whatever pace you can do. Remember to be regular in your efforts.

2) Improper Diet: Eating foods regularly which are loaded with hydrogenated fats, refined sugars and processed foods increase blood sugar levels suddenly and then dip suddenly. Our bodies and minds become lethargic with such foods. These chemicals affect the limbic brain( emotional centre) directly, making us feel blue, irritated and fatigued.

SOLUTION: Eating healthy is not only good for your body but also your brain. Food stuffs that contain omega-3 fats are referred to as brain foods and lack of such foods makes you vulnerable to depression. Eat crap and you feel like crap! Since our bodies cannot manufacture omega-3 fats, it has to be sourced from foods such as coldwater fish and seafood. Eating whole grains, fibre, vegetables, fruits rich in carbs and plenty of water Eat healthy for a healthy mind.

3) Poor Sleeping Habits and Stress: If you constantly deprive yourself of sleep or oversleep, you create a situation that risks depression. Not getting the recommended 7-9 hours of sleep leaves you irritable, agitated or hyper vigilant. A person who hasn't slept enough cannot perform daily functions properly and may feel frustrated or begin to feel trapped. A sense of loss of control makes one feel depressed. Most people don't understand that just getting enough sleep can help in keeping depression at bay.

SOLUTION: Sleeping well has a restorative and rejuvenative action on the body and mind. The body repairs itself while sleeping, dreams are a way of expelling unwanted thoughts and emotions, people develop higher immunity when they sleep well, you have better cognitive functions. You will make sound decisions with fewer errors, concentrating and focussing will be easier. Tasks will seem easier and effortless. A good sleep leaves people feeling energised, happier and alert.

4) Isolation: the experience of being separated from others - may result from being physically removed from others, as when a person lives in a remote area, or it can result from the perception of being removed from a community, such as when a person feels socially or emotionally isolated from others. Social isolation is distinct from the experience of solitude, which is simply the state of being alone, usually by choice. Taking time to be alone can be a healthy, rejuvenating experience that allows us to reconnect with our own needs, goals, beliefs, values, and feelings. But when a person experiences too much solitude or feels socially isolated from others, he or she may develop feelings of loneliness, social anxiety, helplessness, or depression, among others.

SOLUTION: Having an active social life with real and genuine people whom you gel with and have common interests is like an elixir of life. It infuses a person with a sense of wellbeing, safety, security and belonging, which is necessary for us humans. It forms social support not only in good times but also in tough times when we need help, support, suggestions and encouragement. A shared smile, a nod, a wink, laughter or story can go on a long way to make you feel uplifted.

5) Ruminating Constantly: Dwelling on negative thoughts each day, sets you up for depression. Constantly thinking of failure, loss, rejection or past events is harmful. Ruminating about something you cannot change not only makes you depressed but also drives you insane. It fosters feelings of helplessness, worthlessness and hopelessness, which are so common in depression.

SOLUTION:There are practical ways of fighting this problem, like keeping yourself busy and distracted, or just using an outlet to channel the feelings out of your system. Have a satisfying hobby to fill up your free time. Taking care of a pet, social work also helps people feel good about themselves. Use logic and rational reasoning to combat negative thinking patterns. Seeing meaning in a loss is very helpful too. Look at the positive and brighter side of each situation. Using humour to lighten some tough situations help keep the mental and emotional balance from tipping.

Hi,24, I am facing a difficult time due to my career and marriage. I am unmarried right now, but there is pressure on me for that. I was a calm person. Considerably calm person. But now I am getting irritable, and I loose control while reacting on very small things. I am never happy, I have lost interest in my favorite things, I do not like going out now, I just want to know, is it normal? Am I facing any kind of depression?

In an Indian family, a 24 year young girl is always a matter of concern in the family. It is our culture that forces parents under peer pressure to make sure you find a good suitable husband as soon as possible. It becomes a part of their social duty. If you do not want to get married as yet, you have to do something that will justify your remaining single for a while. Take up a course of study that will enhance your capabilities, even for a job in the future. Speak to your parents about your ambitions of what you would like to do in the next few years. It will be a great idea for you to take a few days off mentally for yourself and decide who you would like your future husband to be like and express this to your parents. It will make their efforts more worthy (because they will not stop tying) and you will be less irritated with rejections. Most of all, you are not Depressed. But you have to find time and make all effort to clear your mind first. And express it in clear terms to your parents. Remember, it may seem hurtful to be clear and direct with them, but in the long run, irritation from wrong choices will be avoided. You are a young girl of the new generation. It is better to be clear NOW. Than regret in the future. After-all, as parents, they have your good in heart, but as many many families, the generation gap and new thinking is not easy to deal with. Best of luck.

Hello! My cousin has been diagnosed with brain tumour which isn't malignant (age-15) He finished his radiation 3 months ago. Now he's facing problems like forgetting people and forgetting what he's doing and speaking unrelatedly. Here doctors say that that's because of edema and will subside within 3-4 months. Is there anything to worry?

At this point I would suggest that you just encourage him to do memory exercises. Do questions and answers. Play games like scrabble, word games. Singing and listen to music. Writing is also good exercise. Take medicines prescribed.

One of my friend is addicted to smoking. He is trying hardly to quit smoking but he is nt able to do it. So I just want to know what are the simplest things he can do to quit smoking.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS

Take sauna bath for 5 days. This is because it helps to release the nicotine along with the perspiration that happens during taking it. So the craving for smoking is reduced. Later, inform me after 2 weeks the changes.

Not sure about social anxiety but yes. You seem to suffer from major depressive disorder. That also for quite sometime. I wonder if there has been any stressor or what are the modalities of treatment you have tried so far. Please sit with Psychiatrist and go for a detail assessment of your situation before entering into any treatment plan.

I am a smoker and who smokes twice a day and I will be taking tulasi leaves in the morning and I maintain a good diet. It will help me or not.

Hi lybrate-user! Actually speaking smoking is injurious to health, inspite of knowing many do not quit. Intake of tulasi is good, but you should stop smoking gradually from 2 to 1 and then 1 and then completely stop. Smoking can be avoided by diverting mind into something good or hobby. If interested you contact me either through text chat or call me when you find difficulty to manage.

Mental strength of each individual varies according to the parenting they get in the childhood days, school environment, behaviour of friends circle, relatives etc. Most of depressed patients are of thinking more about their sins or guilt too much. Gulity conscious is good to some extent but beyond a limit leads to lack of interest in daily activities, poor concentration, indifference towards parents, relatives and friends whom you loved much. This again makes your mind much more worse. There are few simple tips to get rid of too much sensitive nature of mind and guilty conscious through counselling. Medical required or not is judged only after consulting patient mental status either directly or online. For treatment consult a qualified homoeopath.

Hi yes there are all possibilities that you have the same experience whenever you take alcohol, specifically if you lose control over the quantity. But it may not happen if you are smoking tobacco. So better avoid the habit and even if plan to continue with the habit exercise complete control over the quantity of intake.
