This fear of death can be quite crippling if you tend to believe in it. Obviously you do. In other words you have a trust problem: trusting in life and in the developments in medicine and other huge benefits of modern science. Now this kind of fear has some basis from some traumatic experience from childhood. If you have already identified that it would help tremendously. The tendency to use right brain, which has a penchant for exaggerating things quite out of proportion, is your handicap. You must meet with a counselor and seriously study all the possible ways that you fear death and the hypochondriacally suggestive factors that you must be obsessing about. When you check these out with another person you trust, you can see your discrepancy in perception and belief in comparison, and perhaps that will help you to change the outlook. You need to have explicit faith in the therapist for this to be effective. Also you will need to examine if the fear about death is related to any particular aspect of your health and explore the measures you can take to stave off that possibility. This is a very important boosting action to take, and you will feel physically able and fit. I am referring to regular physical exercises especially of the aerobic kind; eating healthily, and stress management. But I think that the greatest benefit you can really experience is from the spiritual angle, if you have faith in god. If you have not explored this, you must. For this you must speak to a spiritual counselor or even a psycho spiritual one. Death is an eventuality and accepting that with good faith will really go a long way to love life, to live life to the fullest, and to enjoy every moment of existence as though there is no tomorrow. Everybody else is living life knowing that death will come to them someday but that it can be hastened by neglecting your lifestyle or abusing healthy living. The spiritual pursuit is the best bet among a lot of other measures too which are not possible to mention in this forum.

Hi, Sometimes Im getting anger or depressed without any specific or valid reason.

Sometimes Im getting anger or depressed without any specific or valid reason.
You may be into an anger related depression or in the early stages of it. Meet with a counselor and work out your emotions with that person and follow all the instructions. When you internalize your feelings you will experience a lot of health complications. If you know of any reason, developmental or genetic that has contributed to this condition, take that to your counselor. So go out and meet with people, exercise regularly, sleep well and eat healthily. 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: find someone to love and to love you back. 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 everyday and learn to be contended with what you have.

Hello Lybrate user. Ma'am don't worry sab thik ho jayega .pls aap yeh steps follow karo. 1-Try to stay on the same team. "The enemy is the illness, and not the person with depression, 2-Don't get bogged down in stigma or angry feelings 3-Help this person get a proper diagnosis and treatment. 4-Show receptivity. Encourage a depressed person to talk about the way he or she is feeling, thinking or acting, and listen without passing judgment 5-Offer to go to a doctor's visit. 6-don't try told him how you're feeling what he feel cause you don't 7-help him to remember the happy moment in life 8-if he told you i'm depressed wouldn't tell him me to 9-get him out for hiking or make any hobbies he like. This is my opinion how to deal with depressed people from life experiences or if further you can personally visit your near by area .at least go and discuss this case with the psychologist.

8 Best Homeopathic Medicines To Treat Depression!

8 Best Homeopathic Medicines To Treat Depression!

Depression is a psychiatric disorder that is characterized by constant feelings of sadness, low self-esteem and loss of interest in daily affairs. Depression is most likely caused by hormonal imbalances, genetic problems, drug addiction and grief.

Depression can be characterized by its symptoms:

  1. You will experience constant feeling of sadness
  2. There may be sudden outbursts of anger
  3. You may have difficulties in concentrating and executing various tasks
  4. Constant feeling of tiredness
  5. Loss of appetite
  6. Changes in weight
  7. Social withdrawal
  8. Difficulties in sleeping at night

Homeopathy focuses on treating disorders by rooting out the cause of the disease rather than just treating the symptoms. Homeopathic treatments also do not cause any side effect to the body.

The various remedies that are used to treat depression are:

  1. Causticum: It is used to treat symptoms of depression that occurs after losing someone. It can also help in episodes of frequent crying, mental dullness and forgetfulness.
  2. Arsenicum album: This remedy is used to treat excessive worrying. Usually people who worry about not meeting their expectations benefit most from this remedy.
  3. Aurum metallicum: This remedy is used to treat symptoms of suicidal thoughts, despair and low self-esteem. These symptoms may aggravate during colder months.
  4. Cimicifuga: This treatment is recommended if you feel extremely upset and gloomy. If you face symptoms of neck pain and headaches during depression, then this remedy might help you.
  5. Phosphoric acid: If you face symptoms of introversion and loss of appetite, this remedy should work wonders.
  6. Sepia: This remedy is recommended when you face symptoms of loneliness, anger and are easily disturbed. It may also cure symptoms of digestive disorders during depression.
  7. Pulsatilla nigricans: Pulsatilla nigricans is used to treat symptoms of whining, jealousy and mood disorders. It is usually recommended for women who have depression along with menopause or puberty.
  8. Kali phosphoricum: This is used to treat symptoms of emotional stress, lack of concentration and fatigue resulting from depression.

A Note of Caution: Even though the names of the medicines have been listed above, still it is advisable to consult a trained homeopathic practitioner as the potency and dosage of the medicine will differ from person to person and can only be decided by the doctor. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized homeopath.

I am a ortho doctor First year. I want to become a great surgeon. I always gave and infact giving first importance to my work was trying from past 6 - 7 months to create my good image among my seniors and consultants. But I do not know why I always failed. Infact I use to get trapped. Or let it be politics of dept. But every time I am in worst image. manner times I came to know how a politics was created on my back and my image was worsened. Living with all these fr 6 months. yesterday may be out of stress. I manhandled on one of the pt. in ward. I slapped him in ward when he denied that I havent changed his slab. Although I did it in morning but. After the incident a scene was created. Today I have got suspension letter fr few days and after that I will be posted in mortuary till further notice. I am feeling so much depressed. I can not share all this with any of my parents who always think that im doing great surgeries in operation theatre and all. please help me out. I want to shine. But I am so much down. Not even in normal image.

Hello Lybrate User Well what all is happening or rather what all has happened is not favorable, but you have to still keep patience till further notice is being given to you. Moreover, it is not just your college or community that you belong to, you will find people cribbing and talking out about you or the other person and that is another trait of humans. So whatever you have been experiencing is not a good feeling but when you slapped a patient, that was also not acceptable on your part. Displacing your emotions onto somebody else is a very easy task, but to hold them and sort it out is slightly difficult. And I understand that you have been trying to manage things since last 6 months but somehow it is not working out and situation is getting vulnerable. I would suggest you that for right now apologize from your teachers, Hods first. Then whatever punishment they have for you, be it suspension or posting in mortuary, accept that, considering that what you did with the patient. And while being posted in Mortuary department you do not have to associate whatever has been happening with you since last 6 months (politics as you said). Keep both things separate. Moreover, try and analyze what has been going wrong on your part that nobody is there to help you out and everyone is trying to create a bad image of yours in front of others? This is a task and you have to figure it out on your own and write back. And there are times when there is no body around to support you and give you a soft corner or atleast even understand what feeling you are going through. At those moments, you have to become strong and create a stronger boundary around your hurt Ego so that it gets comfort at least from you. This Ego is the healthy one which I have mentioned here. For few days if you have received this suspension letter, just be patient and relax yourself. Things will definitely get better. If it is about your adjustment patterns and communication problems with other, you have to smartly work on it, so that you do not have to move much from your comfort zone of personality and others may averagely take your side. You also mentioned that you want to become great surgeon and for which you give importance to your work first. Sometimes you may have to give importance to your seniors and consultants also, along with the work. And that is how you will be working smartly with them. Start giving them respect and time, also because they know better than what you know since you are in your first year of Ortho. Understand their psyche and try to understand what they expect from you. And that is how you will be able to balance things in your life. It is not very difficult but you have to create an effort from your side. And You will definitely succeed. Just calm yourself down and relax. I hope this may help you out, if you have further queries, please share and write back. Regards.

Can Genetics be the Reason Behind Schizophrenia?

Member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, United Kingdom (MRC Psych), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ghaziabad
Can Genetics be the Reason Behind Schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia is a psychiatric disorder in which a person’s mood, knowledge, thought and several other characteristics gets disturbed. We can notice most of the adults and old people with few symptoms of schizophrenia, which are most commonly left unidentified. The exact cause of schizophrenia is not yet known. The person feels that they are being constantly watched, they feel the presence of someone or something, which is not actually there. They are always suspicious and think that other people are gossiping and thinking about them.

Possible causes of Schizophrenia
Though the exact cause of schizophrenia is not known there are few factors, which contribute to the cause of schizophrenia.

  1. Genetic factors: People with a family history of schizophrenia are at higher risk of getting schizophrenia.
  2. Environmental factors: Environmental factors include excessive stress during pregnancy or later stages of life. Several other factors during pregnancy and childhood are responsible for causing schizophrenia. These factors are:


    1. Decreased oxygen level during delivery due to premature birth or prolonged labour
    2. Parental loss or separation in early stages of life
    3. Parental exposure to virus or during infancy
    4. Childhood physical or sexual abuse
    5. Abnormal brain structures and brain chemistry

Sings and symptoms of schizophrenia

  1. Hallucination: To see, feel or hear anything that really does not exist is known as hallucination.
  2. Delusion: A thought or belief of a person, which is either false or impossible in reality is known as delusion.
  3. Thought and speech disturbances: The thought process and speech of a schizophrenic will be disorganized, due to which he or she  will fumble or is distracted as they are unable to align their thoughts.
  4. Difficulty in concentrating: It is difficult for people suffering from schizophrenia to concentrate on the task at hand.
  5. Erratic behaviour: People suffering from schizophrenia tend to behave erratically, either they will be too jumpy or will be perfectly still for hours at a stretch. Most people belief that those who are suffering from schizophrenia are often violent in nature, which actually is not the case.

Treatment for schizophrenia
Schizophrenia can be treated, if identified at an early stage. It is best advised to consult a psychiatrist the moment you spot the symptoms. Anti psychotic drugs, self help behaviour change, counselling and rehabilitation are few treatment modalities available for schizophrenia. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

She get irritated easily on every small talk or activity. She always thinks that her husband try to prove her wrong in Everything. She always start weeping if anyone said any hard word to her. She is very attached to her family alot. She freeze her hands when she gets angry. She screams in anger. Please suggest.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
She seems to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. They have love-hate relationship with close ones. Episodes of depression are common. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.
