Hi, Doctor, i tend to think too much on very small problems also. I get depressed to frequently. It's fact that I'm facing challenge in every aspect of life, getting backs in MCA, rejection in interviews due to various silly reasons, not getting results as efforts I make every where, I feel like looser, feel like I'm too humble and polite and not made for this society. I have some very good friends who support me, but when we can't communicate few days I feel alone and have nobody whom to talk. Last month I despite giving my 100% not able to achieve my target in my business due to some other reasons. I just broked , and not able to sleep 3 days.

I think that you are working too hard instead of working smart. If you concentrate on the small details, then you may miss the larger picture. Sit down and work out a strategy to concentrate on the right and useful material to be able to succeed. Failure is only failure, if you do not learn from it. When you learn, it is experience. And success is the contribution of all the failure that is now nothing but experience. I think it was Bill Cosby who said, that he does not know how to succeed but he surely knows how to fail: by trying to please everybody! You need to perform to your satisfaction because you know what you have prepared for. A people-pleaser will bend backwards and get rejected eventually by everyone. Yes, to some extent it is a ?dog-eat-dog world, but to combat that, you have got to be street-smart. Perseverance is the key that has made ordinary people become great. You are still young, and the whole world is out there to conquer. In your generation you have so many options and opportunities that we feel jaded and worn out just looking at them! So, start all over again but this time around plan well, focus on the larger picture and the process. You will get there, eventually. Talk to a counselor, if you need any help and support to pursue this path. The perception of failure is the biggest problem. It can actualize failure and make you dejected. Change your thoughts and you will change who you are.

Don't think about suicide, first lets work on your main problem of erectile dysfunction. Do PC muscle exercises. Flexing and strengthening your pubococcygeus (PC) muscle can help you exert more control over ejaculation. (Note that these are also called Kegel exercises, which you might have heard about women doing. The muscle is the same in both sexes.) Locate your PC muscle. Put one or two fingers right behind your testicles. Pretend that you are urinating, then try to stop the flow with a quick muscle contraction. That muscle you just used to stop the flow from the bladder is your PC muscle. Flex the muscle regularly. Try to do 10 to 20 squeezes in a set, 2 or 3 times a day. Do a set whenever you're bored or stationary—like when you're sitting at your desk or in traffic. No one will be able to see that you're doing them. Squeeze your PC muscle when you feel ejaculation coming on. Once the muscle is strong enough, you should be able to hold it off just like stopping flow when urinating. Consult for same.

Dear Viraj, General Anxiety disorder treatment consists of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, You will be cured. The process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

I feel nerve tightness in temporal nerves, jaws and around the head I had these symptoms since 2010 when I had depression.in 2010 it got cured after taking medicines but in 2011 it again started.in 2012 I again took antidepressants for two months then these symptoms were gone for 4 months but again started. I then after six months went to psychiatrist n took medicine like dimip/depsol 75, gabapin NT, valpipchrono500.i took them for one year but did not get much relief. I then changed the doctor n he added one medicine lamitor OD. I immediately felt better. and for one year I was ok. But then it seemed that those medicines stopped working on me. I then recently took Ayurveda medicine. I felt excellent for last 5 months. But now again these medicines stopped working. Due to this nerve tightness I become depressed and I have lot of dreams so do not have sound sleep. Please suggest.

Dear lybrate-user, recurrent depressive disorder is recurrent as the name suggests. Your history also suggests the same. It comes on its own and goes away like a passing cloud on its own. Only during the depressive phase you need antidepressants allopathic or ayurvedic. They are mainly to endure the depression and to prevent suicide. It has not much of preventive value for future episodes of depression. To prevent every year depressive episode, your psychiatrist has prescribed valip chono and later lamitor od. These preventive drugs have to be taken for many years. And also they have to be taken during your normal phase also. The dose will be adjusted according to the benefit - whether every year attack has reduced, whether the severity is less, whether you spend many months in normal mood. For all these things please maintain a mood chart daily for years. Take the mood chart to psychiatrist and discuss with him/her. Nerve tightness is one of the symptoms of depression rather than cause for depression. No sound sleep also is one of the symptoms.

Try to find out what is her difficulty. Is she finding any particular subject difficult? try to give her some guidance. If she is not able to study in her present stream then ask her to change her stream. Please allow her to decide for herself. Let her choose her career. Also have'reasonable' expectations from your daughter. You may take her to a counsellor, who will help her to come out of her depression.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Worrying about memory and being tensed anout education matters is the main culprit. The more you worry or be tensed, the more you forget. So stop worrying first. Second study with a systematic approach and pattern. Get enough rest and sleep. Exercise. Play games. Engage in social activities. Nuts, fruits and vegetables are good for memory. Take care.

If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment.

Even one or two cigarettes are harmful. Nicotine tabs are available but may not be in flavors you desire. Nicotine chewing gums are also there. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

How I can quit smoking? Please advise.

Dear, stress could be the basic reason for your hair loss. You need to understand stress and manage it. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Hi, I am 24 years old, I have too much tension without any reason. What should I do? please help me.
It is hardly likely that there is no reason for your tension. If you do not have a conscious reason, then the unconscious mind will have one for sure. If there are reasons buried in your unconscious mind, it is likely that the reasons may have been precipitated from childhood experiences, or a long time ago. The reason you have not been perturbed by it this far is because these may have been suppressed for years, and at an undue moment when stressful factors may have lowered your defenses, it is bound to come up and trouble you. You need to talk to a counselor and that person will help you identify these influences from childhood, and then you could work on them. Any which way, learn about your emotions and learn how to express them appropriately.

Dear lybrate-user, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.
