What she should do for daily routine? Is yoga best to relieve depression? How can I forget him?

What she should do for daily routine? Is yoga best to relieve depression? How can I forget him?
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don’t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder(OCD) - Causes, Symptoms and Treatments!

Ma Clinical Psychology

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder(OCD) - Causes, Symptoms and Treatments!

OCD or obsessive compulsive disorder is a mental condition, which traps people in a cycle of repetitive thoughts that push them to do repetitive behaviors. As the name states, the obsession over certain things compels them to do it over and over again. These actions will only help you feel relieved for a short time and soon the cycle starts back again.

Symptoms of OCD

The symptoms of OCD are classified into two groups, one for the obsessive behavior and the other for compulsive behavior. Some of the common symptoms for these are mentioned below:

Obsessive behaviors

As the name states this means obsessing over certain things, which varies from person to person. Some of the things could be:

  1. Being scared about making mistakes.
  2. The fear of being embarrassed in public situations.
  3. Constantly being scared about contamination by germs, microbes or dirt.
  4. Doubts about sure and simple situations and the need to be constantly reassured about them.

Compulsive behaviors

The obsessions usually results in compulsive behaviors, which you may need to perform to reassure and relieve yourself of the anxiety temporarily. Some of these may include:

  1. Trying to constantly arrange things in a certain way and still not being satisfied.
  2. Thoughts, words and images being stuck in your head throughout the day that may keep you disturbed and cause to lose sleep.
  3. You may even repeat specific words or actions multiple times as a measure of self reassurance.
  4. Hoarding of items, which have no value.

Causes of OCD

Biological factors: Certain chemical imbalances in the brain may lead to OCD, which may happen due to hormonal or biological changes. In fact certain infections are also known to trigger OCD in people.

Environmental factors: Certain types of mental trauma have been known to trigger OCD as well, such as

  1. Office, school, college or other work related stresses over a long period of time.
  2. The passing away of a near and dear one.
  3. Relationship problems.
  4. Repressed abuses from earlier in life.

Treatments

Most treatments of OCD are categorized into two types:

  1. Cognitive behavioral therapy: This is a counseling based therapy where you may be slowly asked to face your fears and overcome them over a period of time.
  2. Medications: Antidepressants, inhibitors, or antipsychotic drugs or relaxants in various combinations may be used to treat OCD.
  3. Electroconvulsive therapy: Only in the rarest of cases would doctors consider electroconvulsive therapy, if the patient is a danger to themselves or others around them.

Hi lybrate-user, there are chances that you loose weight when you smoke or inhale cigarette smoke, as the nicotine enters you body. That nicotine has an effect of suppressing your appetite. With an inhibited appetite, the amount of food you eat decreases. However, the real reason behind your loss of appetite is that when you smoke your blood vessels constrict (narrow) not allowing sufficient blood to flow to your stomach causing it cease functioning. This is why smoking is said to increase the rate of heart attacks. Since you mentioned that a drastically you have lost weight I would suggest you to go ahead and get your medical check up done to be on a safer side.

I have memory loss upon studies ,during any course Daily study may be there for that duration after that I can't remember it again for any Leisure periods. Wat can I do for that.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. At your age memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. I don't think you have any memory related problems. Still to be sure, I suggest you to undergo memory test online or offline. You may contact me after getting the result. Memory depends on three things. Understanding, retention and recollection. To understand better, you have to learn better, effectively. I suggest online educational counseling. Take care.

What Is Bipolar Disorder?

MD - Psychiatry, Diploma in Child & Adolescent Psychology , MBBS
Psychiatrist, Pune
What Is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder is the medical term for extreme depression and mood swings that are abnormal or too frequent. The mood swings may go from depression to mania, where the symptoms may border on suicidal behaviour, and other such dangerous tendencies. Find out more about Bipolar Disorder with this article.

Main Symptoms: The major symptoms of Bipolar Disorder are hypomania and depression. The patient may swing between these two states on a sudden basis. The dramatic mood swings do not have a set routine or pattern and can strike at any given time. The patient may be in a certain kind of state for a prolonged period like many weeks and months, or can even be in a certain state for a matter of days, before the next mood strikes. 

While hypomania is a very severe outcome of Bipolar Disorder, many people do not recognise it as a problem until it gets out of hand. This state can actually make a person feel high on energy where the patient may also achieve all-time highs in terms of productivity and a sense of wellbeing. This state can switch to a state of depression and hopelessness within a matter of days or weeks.

Types: Bipolar Disorder can be categorised into many types, depending on the level and severity of the mood swings. To begin with, Bipolar Disorder has full blown cycles of ups and downs in the mood of the patient. The up mood never really manifests into full fledged mania. This is a more mild form of the disease and the symptoms are often missed. 

Rapid Cycling is another form of Bipolar Disease where a patient may experience at least four or even more episodes of major mood swings within a period of 12 months. Further, Mixed Bipolar is a form of the disease where the depression and elevation may come together or in rapid succession of each other. Cyclothymia is another mild form of this mood disorder and comes with subtle changes in one's mood.

Diagnosis and Treatment: While the diagnosis is done by a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist with the help of an examination of the symptoms, the treatment includes long term counselling and therapy as well as medication for more severe cases. The drugs and therapy aim at making the mind more stable with psychotherapy. Drugs like lithium or benzodiazepine can also be prescribed to control sleeplessness and hyperactivity as well as hostility and suicidal tendencies.

Talking and discussing things are the foremost methods used by psychiatrists when it comes to treating this disease. Persistent mood alterations must be run past a specialist in the field.

Dear lybrate-user, One needs to clinically diagnose the Depression as there is difference between Clinical Depression and Depressive features. Thus you need to contact a Psychologist / Psychiatrist for the diagnosis. As second step - a. Close your eyes. Take deep breaths. Ask your mind to create a time line for you. A time line is simply a line where at different positions you will be able to imagine your past, present and future. You have to assess it and contact me of what you visualise? It there are any abrasions in the line, simple straighten it up by commanding your mind. Do this exercise once a day for at least 7 days. B. Imagine you are coming to the position of present moment each time you visualise the above exercise. For further analysis please contact in private consultation.

I feel so weak after a month and mentally pressurised. Please suggest me what should I do?
Hello Feeling mentally pressurised can be understood as stress. You might be taking a lot of stress about all the things happening in your life. You can try to release your mental pressure through meditation, exercising, spending time with family and friends. Engage in your hobbies and other activities that you like so as to make yourself happy and de-stressed. Also try discussing the things that bother you so that a solution could be found out rather than taking things onto yourself.

It is good you realized the fact. It happens because of excessive friendly relations with boys. Sharing problems, mutual contact, excessive privacy, no objections, no risks from law. No one is not suspected your relations. Availability of boys in sex mood. There are so many reasons to be attracted towards boys. Initial days onwards negativity towards girls. Rejection from girls also reason to develop homo sexuality thoughts. Once you do it may be addiction. Your mind repeatedly ask homosex. It is also no cost also. Then you easily go. But in future you may not enjoy with girls. Your life is miserable when you marry. So initial time onwards you please erase thought in your friend. Touch lady skin then you get more satisfaction. Better to make friendliness with girls. Then you enjoy natural sex in healthy manner. So please change your mind set. Enjoy real taste of sex. Ok best wishes.

I have a daughter who is 9 yes old studying in 4 th standard. She is quite hypersensitive. However I am finding that she is witnessing concentration lapse in her daily studies. For example inspite of knowing arithmetic methods of addition, subtraction, multiplication or division she commits silly mistakes. Similarly while writing answer in English or hindi there are lot of spelling mistake. She hardly devotes more than 10 minutes in one stretch. Kindly suggest me either in form of medication or otherwise how to improve her concentration.

This is typical of her age - instead of worrying or scolding her, remain relaxed and ask her to check and recheck her work - as if she is a teacher, who will look for any mistakes. Make her practice in a fun way by using white board, scrabble, monopoly, asking her to write the grocery list etc. If still there is problem, consult a psychologist.

Respected doctors. I have an general question. Is depression curable. If yess, is it curable without medicine.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach

Respected doctors. I have an general question. Is depression curable. If yess, is it curable without medicine.
It is very much curable if treated earlier. These days chronic stress due to our life style and work demand feeling stressful, burnt out might lead of depression. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You couldd google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. Thus will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. If you need help in exploring what works best for you and make this into your life style do let me know. As a trained wellness coach I could help you tailored your own holistic wellness program. Hope this helps if you are interested in short 4 to 8 week resilience training you may contact me. Wishing you very best.

You are probably distracted by a lot of fantasizing that may have many influences. One is that you may be troubled about something that you may not have been aware about. Talk to your parents and see if they know of anything that might have contributed to some stress during your developmental years. The stress has already had an impact in you through the depression and the BP at such an early age. It is also possible that you have a short attention span because you could be very intelligent and the things around you are not stimulating enough to grab your attention adequately. Then the mind tends to wander and pay less attention to what people are saying. It could also be a defense against responding to people where you can justify yourself by not paying attention enough to give proper responses. In all this I have a serious suspicion that you may be very sensitive to rejection: that is, you are so afraid of people not liking you and therefore rejecting you, and that you would want to do everything possible to avoid it but will inadvertently set it up. This may happen because at some point in your life you may have experienced traumatic rejection and that has impressed itself so strongly in you that without your awareness you will be extra-careful to avoid it but yet set it up. If any or all of this is true you must meet with a counselor and sort these matters out. Your parents? help must be solicited to give a lot of input about your past but to also be the support you will need to sort it out. To deal with the rejection you must learn to accept yourself i.e. to love yourself unconditionally. Discuss this with your counselor and you will come through with flying colors. Don?t play any ?blame game? but focus on the fact that a likely problem has been identified and there are solutions to resolve the same.

A thought to Ponder !

" Until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarretes, with sex; But eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of pain that is holding you in your past, the memories and make peace with them."
