Hi, I understand this a difficult period for you. Take a time out. We have to understand that in life things do not always turn out the way we want them to. Distract, meet your friends, engage in hobbies and understand involve in some sports. This feeling will improve with time. May be you are focusing and thinking too much about her. Start engaging in activities that you used to enjoy before. If possible consult a Psychologist for counselling. One you get a platform to share your feelings gradually you will start feeling better. Thanks Thanks.

Can Stress Increase The Risk Of Eating Disorder?

MBBS, DPM, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Bardhaman
Can Stress Increase The Risk Of Eating Disorder?

Conditions related to the eating patterns or behavior of an individual which leave a negative impact on the health of the person are known as eating disorders. These can lead to the deficiency of sufficient nutrition in the body. The heart, the digestive system, the bones, and the teeth and the mouth are the body parts that generally get affected due to this condition.

Although the root cause is not known exactly, there are several factors which can be held responsible for causing this type of disorders likes:

1. Genetics-A person, who has parents or siblings suffering from eating disorders, has higher chances of suffering from it as well.

2. Society- In order to fit into the society, people often find it very necessary to look the best, which means being thin. Peer pressure and the worry about what people say fuels the desire, more like desperation in a person to become thin, which may lead to an eating disorder.

3. Emotional and psychological health- Problems directly linked with the psychological and emotional health of a person, like low self-esteem, impulsive behavior, relationship associated trouble and perfectionism can also lead to eating disorders.

There are certain factors which increase the risk of eating disorders.

1. Age-Anyone can suffer from this condition. However, a teenager or a young adult has higher chances of getting an eating disorder.


2. Gender- Females have higher risks of suffering from eating disorders than men.

3. StressAnyone who is going through any kind of emotional/mental stress has high chances of getting an eating disorder.

4. Family history-People who have a family history of this condition, i.e. their parents or siblings had suffered from it earlier, have higher chances of getting any kind of eating disorder.

5. Other mental disorders-Obsessive compulsive disorder, depression and anxiety are some mental disorders which may trigger this condition in an individual.

6. Profession- Dancers, models or actors have higher chances of suffering from eating disorders because they always have this urge/want to look the best, so they starve themselves. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

My friend 29 years old male has taken 50avil tabs and after few minutes he vomited, got seizures for 5 minutes. He was admitted in ICU and had fever, hallucination problem. Later after 5 days he was discharged but still he has memory issues in remembering passwords and things. Is anything serious with him now.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
There are multiple issues to be addressed here. Firstly, the reasoning behind taking 50 tablets of avil is of significant concern. It is a sign that there is something seriously problematic, which he is dealing with by taking such a drastic step. Secondly, having seizures and what seems like delirium. The primary focus should be on his physical condition first, and then on his mental/emotional condition. He will require regular follow up with his treating physician as well as an opinion by a psychiatrist. This is a serious situation, and needs to be dealt with accordingly. Persons who attempt suicide are more likely to try it again and he needs to be assessed for the same. There is also a possibility of brain damage caused by taking any medication in excess, which needs to be taken into consideration.

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. And if these are not useful you need antidepressants 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. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.
