Hello, I am suffering from stress due to some issues, I don't know what to do? And I don't know how to control it, Please help me to remove the stress because later it can leads to depression.

Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Stress is very important for your growth. It should be eustress instead of distress. Every stress need not lead you to depression. Please convert distressing issues to eustress by effective stress management technique.

I was cured from chronic depression but still I am feel some depression For daily.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must continue to maintain the regimen that helped you out of the depression. Apart from that I do not think that you met with a counselor. You must meet with a counselor for a long time even after medication has been stopped. In the meantime do the following, sincerely: 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. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. 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 scotching 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. If you love yourself adequately, you will never do harm to yourself. Be positive always and learn to do everything possible to invest into yourself. Life is extremely precious and because the depression, which is a mood disorder, makes you feel like giving up you must still persevere. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. 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. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Because you are young the prognosis is good subject to your cooperation.

I am suffering very bad negative and porny thoughts for my family members from 15 years when I was in class 6 what I do. I went many holy places. Doctors and priest.

I can understand your problem and the guilt feeling resulting from it. But do not loose heart. There is a way out. Every problem in this world has a definite solution. Do believe in that. Your negative thought about your own family members is only a learned behavior, and anything learned can be unlearned, if you have a strong will to change. Let me give you 3 practical suggestions. 1. I think you are not married yet, and if I am right, get married as soon as possible. It may bring down your negative thoughts to a substantial extent. 2. Stay away from your home at least for a year (more is better) on grounds of any job or work, in a distant location. 3. Everyday, sit in a quite place with closed eyes, actively imagine that you are interacting with your family members one by one with appropriate relationships, i. E. Behaving a good brother with your sister and a good son with your mother and so on. Follow these suggestions with full confidence you will certainly find a way out. Nothing is impossible. Hope for the best.

I'm not energetic anymore. I find it very difficult to take decisions. Sometimes I feel very helpless, confused and hopeless. I cry at times. But again console myself by the thought of everything will be all right. However nothing gets all right and I start feeling the same. Do you think I'm suffering from depression?

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.

Hello, this could be due to stress factors, you need to meet nearby psychiatrist who would get your detailed history. If you fit in any kind of diagnosis, he/she may suggest treatment options, medicines if require or different techniques like stress management, anger management, relaxation techniques or techniques to cope up with your problems. However this all depends on your history. Nothing to worry this is treatable condition. Good luck.

As per the famous saying, when you laugh then the whole world laughs with you. It is a true thing and laughter is actually contagious as it tends to regulate a part in your brain when you hear others laughing.

Dear lybrate-user. You are correct. When you laugh then the whole world laughs with you. It is a true thing and laughter is actually contagious as it tends to regulate a part in your brain when you hear others laughing. Laugh always. Take care.

I am in relationship since 2010. My girlfriend cheated me now I am feeling depress and unable to forget her cheating and memory .I love her very much but her love was very painful for cheating.

Psychologist, Delhi
Hi Lybrate user thanks for the query through your concern I can feel your unconditional love for that girl. You love someone its really wonder feeling you should proud of yourself that you are loving someone unconditionally its her bad luck that she is loosing you .but you cannot force any one to love or for care ,if anyhow in any type of pressure someone came then it will be for short time only ,it can be for long time only if someone comes by realising your love and importance. Relation between lovers or any couple is like bicycle and couples are like their wheels when there will be balance then it will run smoothly and when there will be any type of disturbance in any wheel it will lead to disbalance in your what you can do is to talk clearly and if she says no then you must stop any type of contact with her because you will gain nothing and your life will be like hell. Try to divert your mind involve yourself in some other activity make some new friends. May be you are thinking that you can convince her but if there will be any chance then it can be only by giving some space in your relation. Take care.

Hello I could understand how difficult it could be for you to lead this kind of life. Especially difficult part might be mental and emotional state of fear doubt and lack of confidence. Ups and down are part of life. And mental and emotional state are no different. You are facing a major obstacle which might be feeling like a block or darkness where nothing seems to make sense. As I listened to your life story above. I have a deep faith in you that you have the capability and competence both to come out of this hopelessness you are feeling right now. My understanding is that instead of a counselor or therapist a life coach would be a better fit for you. Life coach would help you get clarity about your present state and then will be able to lead you step by step to where you want to be by this year end. He or she will be able to get you into both planning and resource management - both internal and external as well as small weekly action steps towards long term goal and success. If you work with someone for 4 to 6 months you will be able to take a significant forward movement which will help you tap into both inner courage and confidence. Hope this helps. Wishing you very happy and successful life ahead.

Dear, absent mindedness, self talking etc are not mental problems. They happen because of the state of mind you are in at that point of circumstance. Are you introvert? provide me with more information. Take care.

I usually forget things very occasionally. Yesterday I have gone with my scooty to bring snacks. It takes half an hour. So I forgot that I came with scooty and gone home by walking. And in the morning I searched for my scooty then one of my friend told that your scooty is outside. Plzzz help me m afraid because of yesterday's incident.

Homeopath, Raebareli
Acute memory loss can be due to various reason but probably it may also happen you might be occupied and absorbed in any thoughts leading to skip of things and if not this then you need to practice meditation and opt for a better sleep and regular morning walk / exercise for better oxygenation and circulation. However you need to rx kali phos 3x three tabs once daily in afternoon for a weeks time and consult back.

I heard beer is good for health. Is this true? How much of it should be consumed on a monthly basis? Also, is hookah more harmful than cigarette?

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Delhi
Yes, beer is good for health if you have 40 ml on daily basis. This will act like a medicine. This will increase your immune system and boost up your body and mind. Cigarette is more harmful than hookha so avoid hookah.

Does smoking weed is so injurious. But I dnt smoke it regularly. Smoke it 2-4 times in a mnth.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Weed can damage your mind and nerves apart from other diseases. .Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40

Hi i am Confused between love and infatuation as now I am living in live in relationship and too many adjustments and responsibilities and it's not the same anymore. Wanna test myself if I actually love my guy. Or it was just attraction.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Love is when you care very strongly and very deeply about another person. When you love someone, you are there to support them, you work together to solve problems, you’re willing to stand by this person in good times and bad, and you wish nothing more than to watch and help this person grow. Infatuation (also referred to as “lust”) has a few great things going for it too. Infatuation gives you goosebumps. It puts that silly smile on your face that you can't seem to shake. It fills your mind with wonderful daydreams. And, of course, many love relationships start out as infatuation. It all sounds so wonderful that we may not see the problem when infatuation is mistaken for love. But it's a big problem, and that's why it’s so important to understand the differences between love and infatuation. Here they are: Love develops gradually over time. Infatuation occurs almost instantaneously. Love can last a long time. It becomes deeper and more powerful over time. Infatuation is powerful, but short-lived. Love accepts the whole person, imperfections and all. Infatuation flourishes on perfection – you have an idealized image of your partner and you only show your partner your good side. Love is more than physical attraction. Infatuation focuses on the physical. Love is energizing. Infatuation is draining. Love improves your overall disposition. Infatuation brings out jealousy and obsessiveness. It causes you to neglect other relationships. Loves survives arguments. Infatuation glosses over arguments. Love considers the other person. Infatuation is selfish. Love is being in love with a person. Infatuation is being in love with love.

I am 28 years old before one month my left side body is not working because of high stress. Now I m ok but every 2 days I have headache what can I do.

M.D. (Ayurveda )
Ayurveda, Patiala
Keep a check on your blood pressure, lipid profile and uric acid levels too. As you have quoted that you have high levels stress, any of these conditions quoted above, can make it worse for you. Take sleep for at least 7 to 8 hrs at night. Cut down sugar and salt intake. And take mansyadi kshayam 20 ml twice a day with warm water, empty stomach. Tapyadi lauha, 2 tabs, with rice water, twice a day after meals. Good luck.
