I am sure you have not been getting help from counseling. This is the problem with treatment: you need to combine medication with therapy for good progress. In counseling, you will learn a lot of skills and techniques to deal with your day-to-day challenges. These will stand you in good stead while negotiating life's many difficulties. Medication alone will not give you any skills in this area. After you have had a three-year stint without any symptoms, you can come off of medication but always in consultation with your doctor. 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Try to maintain your normal lifestyle. Don’t make any major life changes (for example, moving, changing jobs, changing important relationships) during the first year of bereavement. This will let you keep your roots and some sense of security. Take care of yourself. Eat well and exercise. Physical activity is a good way to release tension. Allow yourself physical pleasures that help you renew yourself, like hot baths, naps, and favorite foods. Avoid drinking too much alcohol or using other drugs. This can harm your body as well as dull your emotions. It’s also likely to slow your recovery and may cause new problems. Give yourself a break from grief. You must work through it, but you don’t need to focus on grief all the time. Find distractions like going to a movie, dinner, or a ball game; reading a good book; listening to music; or getting a massage Prepare for holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries knowing that strong feelings may come back. Decide if you want to keep certain traditions or create new ones. Plan in advance how you want to spend your time and with whom. Do something to honor the memory of your loved one.

General Physician,
Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each some wi other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap ne for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

I was affected from a break up. I still can't forget her. I am feeling very lonely. How can I relieve from this.
Its an unfortunate happening in your life. Its a natural discomfort zone that you have entered into. It would be better if I could talk to you to get to a best prescription. Homeopathy treats such love disappointments very effectively. In my practice, many of such cases start feeling better immediately after the right prescription of homeopathic remedy. But I need to talk to you for a best prescription. However, I can prescribe a very common medicine for such maladies. Please take natrum mur 1m 3 pills each three times within half an hour at the intervals of 10 mins tonight only and then discontinue. Please report in 3 days. Please seek further advice thereafter by making a consult. Please meet your good friends who can help you counsel a bit. Use homeopathy to get rid of such problem without any side effects.

Are there any mental screening tests to find out the extent of depression? I mean tests like brain imaging, MRI etc.
Neuroimaging techniques like mri and ct scan are not very much specific for depression although they show some findings. Newer imaging techniques like fmri is much better for detecting psychiatric disorders but its very much expensive and currently used as a research tool and seldom as diagnostic tool.

I am suffering from brain fog since a long time. I have tried meditation but it helps only for a few minutes to hours. It starts at around 9-10 am, gradually increases and reaches its peak between 1 and 3. The fog starts to fade at around 5 pm. During this time time when brain fog attacks I can't concentrate or focus. I find as if I have a headband which is affecting my thought process. I have become disinterested in everything. I have lost sense of urgency. I am demotivated as I struggle to make it through the day. I know I am operating below part but don't know how to beat this. I am also suffering from fatigue, I get tired easily and am underweight even at the age of 40.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Have you been under some medications off late? Again, have you consulted a neuro physician anytime, in this regard? If not, I would advise that its high time you consult one without any further delay. Simultaneously, have a healthy and balanced diet preferably Mediterranean and have an active lifestyle. Stay well hydrated, exercise daily (walking being the safest) for at least 30 minutes, de-stress and relax on a daily basis. Its important to stay psychosocially active too. I can advise suitable natural medicines in particular, that can help improve clinical outcomes, once you connect with all details including the diagnostics etc all. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely

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. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

--Need Help with Hypnotherapy-- Been suffering from lot of anxiety and severe depression over the guilt of committing something which is morally wrong according to me. Although it hasn't affected anyone, its not a crime and no one was hurt at all and it means nothing to others, but its something I never wanted to do and hated it to the core. My principles and moral values never allowed me even to go close to it. Had been judging people in a bad way for years about it. But somehow I ended up doing the same thing. Earlier I used to walk away from such people. But I can not walk away from myself! And I can not forgive myself for the sin I have committed and now I just want to die. I can't live with myself remembering I did something I never wanted to do. Is there any way to erase that event from my mind? I just want to delete that part, I want to delete just that one day and that moment from my life. I have heard a hypnotherapist can do it? Please help! Please help me forget (erase) it forever!

HI LIBRATE USER Feeling guilty, it really make you feel like a huge burden is on your shoulder, but the good thing about this was that you could use your guilt as a sign of what priorities you needed to change your life. Everyone make mistakes, making mistakes is what make us human. You should appreciate yourself for your inner honesty and try to improve your life. Focus on forgiving yourself for what you have done, learn from the past and do better in your future. An affirmation of positive statement would be encourage and uplift your thoughts. Try this-"I am a good person and deserve the best despite my past actions" I am not perfect, I make mistakes, but I can learn from my past. Try to tell yourself daily for one week and give your feedback. Thanks.

We found a good groom for my sister. In every aspect he is good and healthy. He is 29 and till now don't have any symptoms of schizophrenia. But his mother suffers from schizophrenia. She has been suffering from this problem for past 12-13 years. Since schizophrenia is a genetic problem is it advisable to marry him. What are the chances that it will pass onto the next generation?

Its upto you to decide after seeing the benefits outweigh the risks and remember even your sister might be having some negative points which the opponents might be thinking and its upto your sister to decide whether she will be able to live with her mom in law and future of the groom no one has seen and so you as a brother decide accordingly.

hi, according to the symptoms u told here your mother suffers from a panic attack. I would advise you to contact a good psychiatrist immediately whether she is having this attack or not. In this age due to some hormonal changes also these symptoms occur. So better if you first get her executive health check up done that includes some important blood tests and the major organs check up. All good hospitals are offering this check up now a days. For further discussion you may contact me by asking private question here on lybrate.
