I lost somebody close to me last month and from then I feel very depressed. I am not able to sleep correctly. I try to not to think about her but just for a little time. I am preferring to spend time alone. Pls help me.

Grieving for the loss of a loved an absolutely normal reaction, and at times necessary, for one to achieve closure. Give yourselves some time to cope with the loss. Try and distract yourself by doing things you enjoy doing. If it continues to be difficult, and you remain withdrawn, seek professional therapy, which can help to get over your loss more easily. Don't continue to suffer for too long, else you run the risk of spiraling into depression. Good luck.

My Younger brother whose age is 20 and student of psychology and economics , He suffered from psychosis as he used to smoke marijuana hash and weeds for the last two and half years and suddenly stopped it, we consulted Dr. and some medication prescribed by him. When I came to know about situation I went to Aligarh from Delhi (Working here) and found that he was not able to sleep for the last 5 days (probably 1 hr each day he slept) after we consulted psychiatrist he went extremely well as we took him to a trip for five days, after 5-7 days we stopped medication as he was good as earlier and suddenly after 5 days a relapse in same situation with fear and phobia and that phobia is increasing day by day and sometimes decreasing, I am not able to understand what exactly we need to do. The medication prescribed are-Divaa OD-250 (Divalproex Sodium) - 250mgOleanz (Olanzapine) - 5MgLonazep 2 Mgand after relapse -Felicita OD Caps. He used to study and practice spiritual things like Aura reading, psychic powers and Illuminati Groups, he fears that something bad going to happen according to his extra sensory perception which I cannot understand. Whenever he watches any tv channel relates it to himself or family or our family ancestors and fears that there is conspiracy and planning to kill or abduct us (family or him). He is now having suicidal thoughts which I am extremely worried about, he is an intelligent student and extra ordinary performer with good IQ. According to him Delhi is not safe for him, however I decided to take him to mother in hometown which is in UP East, we have a sorrow filled family history with divorce of our parents at the age of 8. Father had fewer symptoms of schizophrenia and very mild and he is an ENT surgeon, a doctor by profession. I am 22 years old, doing job in a BPO to support family and studies, I always used to send him very limited money so that he himself can do some part time job to become a responsible person but he was never able to do so. Please help me to get my brother on right track and remove all delusional or false thought from his mind. Doctor now prescribed trinicalm, which is for schizophrenia and which blocks dopamine receptors, he is happy and gets sometimes fear about being himself or me abducted as he has posted and revealed illuminati groups, according to him which is delusional. His eyelids moves sometime at very frequent interval which I think involuntary. Please he me, I will be highly obliged to you doctors.

Psychologist,
Yes you are indeed taking good care of him and so is the psychiatrist. Keeping him mentally and physically occupied with a purpose is important. Some delusions will go away and some new might come. It takes time for delusions to leave a person completely. Counselling can helps schizophrenics if they are not extremely disturbed by it. Ask his doctor and take him for counselling to control his delusions and fears. Also the drugs weed and marijuana would have weakened his system and left behind a lot of toxins which will continue to show their presence by way of emotional and mental imbalance. I suggest that he does a detox so that the toxins can be eliminated. Ayurveda has some powerful detoxification therapies and will help him to reduce symptoms. Though allopathy medicines are suiting him, but they have side effects as well. I suggest that you take an informed decision and educate yourself on these. Ayurveda and homeopathy are slow to treat but come with fewer side effects. Take your call after you have done your research. Besides this exercising regularly and eating a healthy meal has tremendous benefits on mental and emotional wellbeing too. Try to reduce junk to minimum as there are enough studies linking it to depression and other mental illness. Don't leave him alone as he's suicidal. He will need constant monitoring without him feeling overwhelmed. He should be in social company of friendly and supportive people as this will keep him integrated with the society. Lastly, I request you to take care of yourself as you seem to be the caretaker. Take frequent brakes to replenish your energies and meeting your own life goals. Get help from friends, neighbors, relatives etc. Look into your own food, sleep and exercise. Remember that you can take care of him longer if you care for yourself first.

First of all make sure your hypothyroidism is fully investigated by your Dr. which is seldom done by drs all over the world. Have they done all the 6 tests like TSH, Free T 4, free T3, reverse T3 and TPO and TG antibodies then only can your thyroid issue can be fixed .Thyroid disease is also related to anxiety .For finding out the trigger factor a detailed medical, dietary history and certain blood work needs to be done. Take a consult if you want specific advise.

RESPECT PAIN
Pain is there for a Reason. Pain is the way our bodies speak to us.

Its a constant reminder of a malfunction happening inside of us.

Pain is good. Its that reflex withdrawal from something too hot.

Its that Spasm that restricts your movement when you don’t,

Its a Protective Mechanism to ensure better lives,

Its the exaggeration of every sensation you feel,

Letting you know that its too much.

Ya that’s pain and its good.

Pain is a signal for us, Humans to stop.

I have fallen in deep love with my friend, she is not from my religion - she is hindu brahmin girl. But I am totally mad for her, I feel so attracted towards her that I frequently masturbate imagining her, I watch her photo in my phone for hours, and always think of good moments we shared together, I hear our recorded conversation when I feel low, she just know I like her but she is unaware of my deep feelings for her as I didn't tell her my true feelings. Some times I do feel I love her but I am scared of the consequences it can have on both of us. We both hail from very conservative families. So, marriage is simply impossible, but I really love her and want her to spent her whole life with me. But the problem is I am already in a relationship and she knows that and my GF is her best friend. Because of this she started avoiding me and deliberately moving away from me, I know she too have feelings for me but she is hiding it deep inside her heart for the sake of her friendship or may be fear of society. Please help me what to do now?

M.D in Psychiatry
Psychiatrist,
you know marriage with her is impossible. I believe you eish good for her and never want to harm her. You also have a girl friend who is her friend also. Do justice to this relationship and have a nice life with her. You may come across another girl in life and get attracted to her and think you are in love and can't live without her. So every thing you and your mind desires can not be acquired in life. we have to put boundaries and live in our own limits and lead life. you are in fantasy love with the girl and also believe that the girl also had love for you. This is out wishes and trying to justify our wishes. this is not correct. love your girlfriend more and lead a good life with her.

I am suffering from anxiety or depression, due to which I am not able to sleep properly and I also feel fully exhaust even after a over night sleep.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Ghaziabad
Dear anxiety or depression are clinical terms so please do not go in their details. Improper sleep leads to overall tiredness, bad mood and low spirits. Anxiety or depression occurs when 1. We are not prepared to face a situation 2. We are trying to avoid and accept a concern or situation 3. We have accepted that there is no problem to the situation. So you need to identify where the problem is and then only we can think of solution. Do brisk walk 30-40min daily, add rasins, almonds, gooseberry and milk to your diet. Feel free to discuss with me.

5 Effective Ways to Manage Stress

5 Effective Ways to Manage Stress

Stress happens when the demands placed on you are too much and cause a burden on you, for example, work, school or relationships surpass your capacity or ability to adapt. Sometimes stress can be a little beneficial in the form of a support that gives the drive to some people to get their work done on time and meet due dates and deadline. However, an extraordinary measure of stress can create health and well-being issues. They can lead to problems in cardiovascular and central nervous systems and take a serious emotional problem.

Untreated and chronic stress can bring about serious health conditions including tension, sleeping disorder, muscle pain, hypertension and a weak immune system. Stress can fuel other diseases and disorders, for example, heart diseases, depression and obesity most of the times. By discovering positive, healthy and solid ways to oversee stress as it happens, a significant number of these negative wellbeing outcomes can be decreased. Here are five effective ways to manage stress:

  1. Take a break from the stress: It might appear to be hard to divert yourself from a major work schedule. However, when you give yourself consent to step away from it, you let yourself have sufficient energy to accomplish something else, which can help you have another viewpoint or practice methods to feel less stressed. It is critical not to ignore the stress factor. However, even twenty minutes to yourself is useful.
  2. Workout: Exercise benefits your emotions and brain along with your body. We continue finding out about the long term advantages of a normal exercise schedule. In any case, even a ten or fifteen-minute walk, run, swim or yoga session during an unpleasant time can give a quick impact that can keep you going for a few hours.
  3. Laugh and try to stay happy: Our brains are interconnected with our feelings and outward appearances. When individuals are stressed, its shows up on their face. So laughter can alleviate some of that pressure and enhance the circumstance.
  4. Get social backing: Try to call a friend or send an email to someone regarding your problems. When you impart your worries or sentiments to someone else, it helps calm the stress. In any case, it is critical that the individual whom you converse with is somebody whom you trust and someone who can understand and accept you. In case that your family is the stressor, for instance, it may not ease your stress in which case, you may need a friend.
  5. Meditate: Meditation and prayer can help the brain and body to unwind and concentrate properly. It can help people see new points of view, create self-sympathy and forgiveness. While practising meditation, individuals can discharge feelings that may have been bringing about physical pain. Much like a workout, research has demonstrated that practising meditation can prove to be very helpful. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Hi I am 34 year old male, I used to smoke a lot few months back, now I totally quit smoking, now the problem is I am having constipation and couldn't sleep at night. I can't sleep for more then 3-4 hrs, and due to this my life is badly affected. Whole day I feel stressed and uncomfortable, please suggest me what to do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Deal with your stress with a counselor to reduce its impact in these problems you are having. There is a remote connection between quitting smoking and constipation but this will disappear after some time. Eat a lot of fiber vegetables and fruits in the meantime. For the sleep problem, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i. E. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Hi lybrate user. Apply fine paste of wet turmeric and aloe vera gel on chest with gentle massage, leave it for 15-20 minutes and after that wash it with lukewarm water, do this 2 times in a day. Do this for 30 days. It gives you good result. Consult to me for further suggestions. Thanks.

Many times addiction starts as a flight response to stress. In other words, people look for a temporary relief from stress and get into addiction. You need to identify what causes and encourages your addiction so that you can help yourself to get rid of those issues. You can learn to relax yourself and give positive instructions to your mind to release your addiction with the help of hypnotherapy.
