The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out. Consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

I am unable to control my impatience, anger and anxiety, as a result I make the life of people around me difficult. I do not think my expectations are unrealistic. It's just that I do not tolerate chalta-hai attitude. People feel that I go into minute details. But then quality comes with details. Maybe I'm failing to carry people with me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You probably are a high achiever, and do not like and perhaps cannot even tolerate people who are lackadaisical. While that is a good thing for you, people are all born and bred differently. A good leader is the one who can tap into each one?s capability and get the best out of them, not the best you want, necessarily. So it depends on the kind of people you have, and the ideal technique would be to bring the best of each individual, within their capacity. Impatience, anger and anxiety have never brought about harmony in work situations to produce the best. You must love your people and with love much more can be achieved. When you over-detail, you lose the larger picture. That is where you may be getting caught up with the minor steps, at the cost of the end result. There has to be a discrete blend between the process and the result. You cannot be stuck in one end or the other. You last statement is quite revealing and a very honest assessment: you have got to carry people with you. I think it is in Howard University that you are greeted with a huge banner that reads something like this: ?The bottom line of any organization is its people? In people, it is through good relationships. If you build good relations while getting work done, everyone will go home satiated and the work will get done excellently: details and large picture too. You seem to be the common factor, where the problem probably lies. If you don't believe me, then have an open discussion with the workforce and find answers. You may even discuss my response, to stimulate some openness.

Empty Nest Syndrome

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Empty Nest Syndrome

Growing up is a fact of life and while parents would love their children to be with them, it isn’t always possible. Although in India, children do tend to stay with parents, an increasing trend among the urban population shows that younger populations have to move out of their parent’s homes to other places in search of work, opportunity and career growth. This leaves parents alone and coping with loneliness due to the absence of their children, which may lead to a problem akin to depression, known as ‘empty nest syndrome’.

What Exactly is Empty Nest Syndrome?

If the children have grown up and moved out of the house due to career opportunities or after marriage, parents may find themselves very lonely within their house. However, you should remember that this is not a clinical problem but more of a situation that is being increasingly encountered and has been classified as a mass phenomenon rather than just being a disorder. The problems that parents mostly encounter are

  1. Lack of constant companionship.

  2. Missing the children and being a part of their daily lives.

  3. Worrying about the safety of children when they are not with them.

  4. Missing a purpose in life.

Measuring the impact of the empty nest syndrome

As it has been described and categorized as a phenomenon, it isn’t a form of disorder with a bad side only. Empty nest syndrome tends to have both negative as well as positive effects, if it can be channelized properly. Some of the possibilities of both are mentioned here.

Negative effects include vulnerability to

  1. Marital conflicts

  2. Identity crisis

  3. Depression

  4. Alcoholism

However, positives can come out of this as well such as

  1. Opportunities for the parents to reconnect with each other as the children are out of the picture.

  2. Actively look to improve the quality of their marriage and resolve conflicts.

  3. Take up new activities and hobbies and support each other with that.

  4. Dedicate more time to each other and cultivate new skills.

Coping with Empty Nest Syndrome

Some of the things you can try to counter the effects of empty nest syndrome are

  1. Cultivating positivity: This is the hardest part to do as negative emotions may flood your senses. It is important that you try to stay positive and think that it is in the best interest of your child.

  2. Adjust your time according to your children’s availability: Don’t brood over the fact that your children may not be calling you as per your convenience. Instead of try to align your routine so that you can talk to them when their schedule allows it. This way, you will get a lot of time in your hands.

  3. Actively look for support: If you are missing your children and it is significantly affecting your life, go and actively look for support. Connect or reconnect with your neighbors, friends or relatives and try spending time with them.

  4. Ensure you keep in touch: Keep in touch with your children regularly and ensure a routine of calling and communicating is established so that you are regularly updated, which helps in reducing loneliness and longing. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Sir I am student of Bsc but my memory power very low how to improve my memory power.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear imtiyaz, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Trichophobia is the morbid and irrational fear of hair and, more specifically, hair loss. People suffering from Trichophobia cannot stand the sight or feeling of loose hairs on the head, clothing, pillow, furniture, etc. This also goes for both human hair (most often their own), as well as animal hair or fur. As in the case of any other phobias, trichophobia is also treated with desensitization therapy. Take care.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Consult a psychiatrist immediately. Suicidal ideas are a psychiatric emergency. You may be suffering from depression or any other psychological problem. Many good treatments are available currently and I strongly urge you to try them under expert supervision.

I am a 16yr old male and have addicted of smoking for last 2 years. What should I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. 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 and you must remind yourself about this every day. 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.

Psychologist, Palakkad
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. Take care.

How can I increase my memory? I forget things after sometimes. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: 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. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid all junk food.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. Repetition of some activities till getting satisfied is not a mental disorder. For example, people check the door lock repeatedly, check the switches, check the doors of cars repeatedly etc. These are considered normal activities. If you have something more than this, and if the repetition manifests tension or anxiety within you, then it could be obsessive compulsive disorder.

After 7 years of long relationship, my girlfriend is avoiding me and telling me to forget her and don't be too serious for her but for me it's very hard to get over her as I deeply love her and telling and she tells me now that I am not perfect for her and all these years she didn't loved me. I don't know how to get rid of this situation, how to control myself thinking about her and hurting myself that she would never come back.

First of all, you should know that a relationship can only last if an only if it is mutual. I think she is the best medium in your life to let you learn that you did not understand her properly. For the past 7 years she was with someone else too, or she recently got someone else. In both cases, as far as your future is concerned, you should be thankful to her that she got rid of you. Imagine what would happen if your relationship turned serious and you were married and had 2 kids and then she comes up with the same explanation that she gives you now? A disaster!! Try to get the best of the worst!! There are many lovely people in this world. You will definitely get someone. Start looking and moving further in your life. You can not carry on with some one who does not want to be with you. It is hard, but everything changes when you give yourself a strong message. You will attract someone who is good for you. You need to distract yourself in to creative activities and channelize your energy into the things that you like to do. Make physical activity a regular and essential part of your life. Many studies show that people who exercise regularly benefit with a positive boost in mood and lower rates of depression by producing happy hormones called endorphins. Improved sleep & self-esteem is a benefit of regular physical activity. Good Luck!
