Dear, You are not depressed, but you are stressed. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Please let me know the details. Take care.

I'm a 22 year old female. I read your post on 5 silent signs of psychiatric disorder. After reading it I realized that I find all 5 signs in me. I've always been wondering why I have been behaving like this for a long time. Now that I read your post I am worried. Is there a way I could cure myself at home without medications ? Please help.

Self control is by mind control and medication is a must in most cases . 5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal.

You seem to be suffering from anxiety spectrum disorder. You need to consult a Psychiatrist. Medicine along with counselings and psychotherapy will be very helpful.

There was a break up about one years ago, and since then I was in a deep depression and recovered somehow after consulting a psychologist. But still now I am feeling very alone and prefer spending time with myself ruminating those thoughts only but don't get interest in daily life. What should I do? Although my medicines are still going on. And I was told by the doc that there was a deviation of me and lack of serotonin secretion. I will be really grateful if you help. And sir please SAY THAT SHOULD I worry about THIS SITUATION OF MINE?

Hello Friend, Good that you are seeking a help. Happy to hear you are able to come out of your depressions. Serotonin is one of the happiness hormones. There are ways to trigger it. Suggest you to engage yourself into physical excersise, gym, yoga and some voluntary or service activities or your passion or hobbies. Try and divert your mind from past thinking. Look for a new partner or relationship building activities. Keep yourself occupied. That's enough. Be positive. You will be alright soon.

Most useful natural treatment for weak, small and soft penis is exercising. Moreover, everyone is well aware about the fact that exercising helps to stay fit but, few people know that exercising is also important for reproductive organ. Furthermore, exercising improves the blood flow towards male organ, due to which the tissues are able to fill themselves with appropriate amount of blood needed for stronger, sized male organ. Also, exercising strengthens the muscles and, helps them to work more efficiently, so that the problem of weak, small and soft penis gets resolved. In addition, it would be beneficial to eat well balanced diet that can provide all the essential nutrients to the body.

I really want to full concentrate on my college studies & right now I cant concentrate more than 1/2 hour. In exam i'm in tension so I cant right my best! give me tips for my next semester! next semester is next diwali, i'm currently taking medicine!

Hi you are doing good. Human brain can concentrate on one thing only for 40 - 45 minutes and there after concentration degrades. This range differs with individuals, like in your case its 1/2 hr. Quality of time spent in studies is more important than span of time spent. Its good you know your limit, take break every 1/2 hr and make sure you come back to your studies after the planned break. Regarding your tension, (may be anxiousness) we can plan better coping strategies for you in counselling sessions. Also we can discuss smart and sound study methods for effective studies. All the best!

Depression - Signs & Symptoms To Watch Out For!

Depression - Signs & Symptoms To Watch Out For!

Feeling sad is one thing, but a persistent feeling of sadness can overtake your life, and is anything but healthy. Depression is not something to be ashamed of. It is a common condition, that can be treated if identified early. 

Treatment of depression usually involves a combination of medication and psychotherapy. The effects of depression vary from person to person, but some symptoms are commonly experienced in all cases. These symptoms can be categorised as physical changes, behavioural changes, cognitive changes and emotional changes. 

  1. Physical symptoms of depression: Feeling tired all the time is one of the most common symptoms of depression. The person may also have persistent headaches and sporadic muscle pains. Insomnia or sleep troubles are often associated with depression. This can further lead to significant fatigue, and a vicious cycle ensues. Sleep troubles can also lead to the formation of dark circles under the eyes, and make the patient’s skin look dull. Patients suffering from depression often find themselves losing weight due to a significant loss of appetite, or find themselves snacking excessively, and hence, putting on weight. 
  2. Behavioural symptoms of depression: Depression can make a person withdraw from his or her friends and family and become a recluse. A loss of interest in activities that would usually excite the person is another characteristic symptom of depression. This condition can make a person unable to concentrate or focus on work and other activities, and hence, may affect productivity in school or the workplace. Depression can also make a person rely heavily on alcohol, sedatives etc. 
  3. Cognitive symptoms of depression: Depression can make a person feel worthless, and leave them with a bleak outlook on life. A depressed person will often find himself or herself criticising themselves harshly for things that may or may not be their fault. This can make them increasingly more agitated or irritable. Depressed people may also turn to violence and trigger reckless behaviour such as gambling, substance abuse, reckless driving or taking up a rash sport. 
  4. Emotional symptoms of depression: Feeling sad for no reason characterises depression. This sadness can overwhelm a person and make them feel guilty about indulging in anything that could make them happier. It can also make the person lose confidence in himself/herself, thus making him/her indecisive about simple decisions. Other emotions that are commonly experienced by depressed people include irritability, frustration, guilt, and disappointment. 

A frequent but ignored symptom is thoughts of self-harm or suicide, leading to deliberate self-harm/suicide attempts. If you or someone you know suffers from any of the above symptoms, you may need help! Visit your Psychiatrist at the earliest to have yourself evaluated, and started on an appropriate course of management. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
