Am married for past 9 months. From 3 months am feeling little depressed. Irritated. I cry often for no reason. Thought of committing suicide keeps coming in my mind and above all I don't feel like getting intimate with my hubby. I feel filthy dirty n cheap sometimes when he tries to have sex with me.

Hi, From what i see, you may be suffering from Depression. It may or not be followed by any stressor. You may need to take medication and be on psychiatric treatment. You can take psychotherapy with me. Start some exercise yoga/meditation and deep breathing. Distract yourself and call up your husband whenever you get thought of suicide. You will soon be better. Eat lots of fruits like banana's, green leafy vegetables and flax seeds. If non vegetarian have fish. Recovering from depression requires action, but taking action when you’re depressed is hard. In fact, just thinking about the things you should do to feel better, like going for a walk or spending time with friends, can be exhausting. It’s the Catch-22 of depression recovery: The things that help the most are the things that are the most difficult to do. There’s a difference, however, between something that's difficult and something that's impossible. Start small and stay focused The key to depression recovery is to start with a few small goals and slowly build from there. Draw upon whatever resources you have. You may not have much energy, but you probably have enough to take a short walk around the block or pick up the phone to call a loved one. Take things one day at a time and reward yourself for each accomplishment. The steps may seem small, but they’ll quickly add up. And for all the energy you put into your depression recovery, you’ll get back much more in return. consult me for any query or counseling.

Be positive. Look for what future holds for you. Every morning say to yourself - each day is better than each passing day. Do some early morning physical workout like jogging or yoga and move on for a fresh start. At times, lack of enough physical activity also causes depression like feeling.

Hello Doctor I always think about suicide attempt I don't want to live in this world can any one help me to overcome my problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your situation is very serious and requires medical intervention very soon. You do not mention any reasons for the depression or suicide but it definitely is an anger-related depression. You are thinking about suicide too much and one day that can feed into an impulse. However, at some time the attempt can go so wrong that arresting or getting out of the attempt may not be possible and that could be the end. You need to immediately meet with a psychiatrist and get into medicines and also therapy. Please do not neglect the latter, as that is very essential in the combination for the successful recovery from this condition. The urgency is so much that you are a danger to yourself right now. Please keep in someone’s company continuously until adequate help and intervention is in place. Inform your parents and seek the medical intervention instantly. Life is indeed very precious, and you are young. There is so much to do in life and so many challenges to face that giving up is a huge waste of a gift opportunity given to you by God. Are you religious or spiritual? Faith in God is extremely important to appreciate life, to preserve it, and to nurture it, always. I know that you would love for someone to take charge of your life but I don’t know if you have someone to do so right now. Even so, take personal responsibility, be active about your recovery and cooperate with everything you are told to do, at least by the professionals. If you visit a hospital you will understand how precious life is and what people do to live longer. May be you have not yet had a positive experience to believe what I say but if you seek professional help you will be able to see so much that you are missing now. You must learn to accept yourself and to love yourself. the reasons will come along but you must become your best friend.

Time is not in your hands. What will happen next nobody can know. But every body have to prepare for all the happenings and mishappenings. Tell this to your soul and mind during meditation. This will help you to come out of it. Do some relaxation therapy with your self with some breathing exercise. When you feel relax you feel batter for your life.

Every employee cannot leave the job and study, it is hard to work and to prepare for exam which will give you lot of stress. During your preparation sleep atleast for 8 hour and meditate to recollect what you prepared. Plan your activity everyday. Mostly plan will never work out unless you executed earlier properly. Tv, smartphone will steal your time and create anxiety. Sleepless night will cause headache snd gastritis so avoid it. If you are not sleeping well you cannot concentrate on subjects and you cannot recollect it.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Are You a New Mommy - Know How You Can Beat the Stress!

Are You a New Mommy - Know How You Can Beat the Stress!

It is common to go nuts when your newborn begins moaning! You'd need to have the nerves of a bomb-squad professional not to give it a chance to get to you. In any case, with a little experience, that is exactly what you'll create (or near it).

Likewise, don't accept that your baby is crying since she's genuinely tragic or upset. "It's anything but difficult to feel along these lines since that is the reason we cry. Nonetheless, newborn children do it to impart a wide range of things - that they're drained, icy, wet, exhausted, hungry, or overstimulated. Instead of stressing that something is truly wrong, consider crying her method for conversing with you." As you build up a routine with your baby, you'll slowly have the capacity to make sense of what she needs just by the sound of her cries.

Numerous new moms may feel overpowered and ponder:

Take comfort; numerous new moms feel a similar way. These worries are basic and superbly ordinary. You can find a way to deal with the stretch of being another mother.

  1. Rest: Get as much rest as you can, wherever and at whatever point you can. Rest when the baby dozes. Get a brisk rest in the traveler's seat amid an auto ride.

  2. Eat Healthy Foods: The right foods can give you more vitality. Do whatever it takes not to overburden on caffeine. Rather, eat healthy foods and drink lots of water.

  3. Work out: You might not have sufficient energy to do long workouts. In any case, even a couple of minutes here and there spread for the duration of the day can help you have more vitality! Take baby for a walk.

  4. Expect an influx of emotions: Absence of rest, included stretch and stress can abandon you having an inclination that you're on an exciting ride of emotions all around the same time. Relax because of realizing that you're not the only one!

I am seventy years old boy and I feeling something odd I mean when I prepare myself for study I m little bit distract to any other direction and not able to focus on study.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise It may be obvious that distractions aren’t helping your focus, but do you actually cut them out? I’ll admit, it can be tempting to put the e-mail alerts on, turn on the IM and answer every request sent your way. But in the end it is only preventing you from concentrating. Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Answer your e-mails at scheduled times. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. Before I write any articles, I define the main focus of the article and get a brief mental picture of the structure. Unclear objectives often result in having to redo sections of work. 4) Divide Blobs Big blobs of tasks that have no clear start or end point destroy focus. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If you are writing a program, get clear on how much commenting you need, what functions you want to use and the flexibility required. If you are writing an article, decide on the length and style. If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. I recommend using a deadline when: 1. Time is limited. If you only have a day to complete work that could easily take weeks, chunking it into specific deadlines will strip away everything that isn’t crucial. 2. It’s easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. If your task could easily expand to have new features or ideas, use a deadline to keep it under control. 3. To avoid procrastination. A tight deadline can save you if you are worried about procrastinating. 7) Break Down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8 ) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. for further help please inform

I am 21 years, a student and have suffered depression in my college life due to my dad's abusive and agressive behaviour. I know he loves me but that is the way he is. Now, I dont live with him but still I get low and feel lonely sometimes. I dont know know what's the reason for my this feeling but I now I am not able to laugh, even cry like I earlier used to. During my college life, the thought of suicide also crossed my mind but I got over it with the hope that one day i'll have a successful carrer and i'll not have to suffer from all of this but with this lowlessnes and emptiness, it rather seems difficult. Also, this low and depressed feeling comes at any time and other times, it appears that everything is fine. Seriously, please I need your suggestion on what to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are into an anger related depression and must work with a therapist to express this feeling to come out of the depression. Your anger may be directed at your father, and if your mother was passive during these abuses, you may be angry with her too. Even if you do not live with your father, he lives very much in your head, still abusing you with those memories you have of him. This will continue to torment you wherever you go and therefore it is imperative for you to sort out this mess in your head. You are losing affect in the bargain as a measure to deny the feeling so that you don? t have to deal with it. But that is exactly the set up for further depression. Your emotions are very important to you, and give you identity. By denying them you are not acknowledging yourself. We are all emotional beings and as such are able to be humane because of our feelings. This could get you into serious trouble later when this thing may become too entrenched to deal with easily. If it ever becomes unbearable, then do meet with a psychiatrist too.

I am seeing my friend bipolar in nature? his expressions, thoughts are changing immediately what should we do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You cannot identify bipolar easily as a lay person. So without wasting time do take the person to a doctor and to a counselor for diagnosis and treatment immediately. You must make sure that the person cooperates because many times they do not believe that there is something wrong and would love to quit the medication. Complying with all the medical prescriptions and working in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learning coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges the person will face is very important. There are certain adaptations that will suit him during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime he can do certain things that will give him benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. He needs to particularly look at his levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that he may never be aware of now. Let him talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also he will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. He must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If his motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. He must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times he will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that he can do without the medication. This will set him back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned he is forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i. E. Feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in him for a personal understanding.

I am male 26 year old, many time I feel sleeping be tension because I doing job and study so give me good suggest.
For tension relief sleep is ok. But excessive sleep leads to laziness loss of concentration in regular work. In sleeping time spend time outside. After work please meet friends and family share your office work and study things with your friends. After sharing the severity of the problems reduces then you relaxed then the next day you work properly you may not feel anytime tension. Tention reduced automatically your sleeping time also reduced so please make friendliness with others. Do not concentrate too much on studies and work. Both are important but too much leads to so many problems so be friendly be happy all the time best wishes.
