Hi lybrate-user! You need to behave differently in social situation like government office because people who are working there are of different mentality money minded, jealous, selfish and no guilty. So so you cannot show your true nature to them may be you are good in heart, helpful and honest, but these qualities does not favor them in any way either for their career or personally so you will be the odd man out. You need to be one among them just chatting but not involving in dishonest behaviour of them but otherwise you can chat with them. You need to show that you are also one among their conversation but assertive way you can be honest. Do not worry. If you still do not know how to handle inspite of the above suggestion you can definitely seek a Professional Psychologist at your locality or online consultation. If you are interested you can contact me either through text chat or online consultation yes you are most welcome. With regards,

Experts guide to make friends and indulge in social club or activities, but how a depressed person is going to do that? And that too in an environment where others don't understand or help the patient? Like in small city or rural India?

Hi lybrate-user, you have raised a wise question and it is totally understandable. Now first thing is motivation work backwards in depression- the more you do, the more you like doing. When you kick that inertia and get out of your shell in a way which breaks you free from the negative thoughts and pattern you have been caught in, it gets rewarding and pleasurable. You can start with building your network with friends you have lost touch with over phone plan a meeting, go out hang out with them. Then slowly when you regain little confidence and control over social life you can generalize it by making new friends. You do not have to tell anyone you are patient foremost thing is you are a person and you are capable of anything. What you think becomes the reality. So do not get bothered much there are ample ways to socialize. Join gym, some art classes, any sports etc. There you will find outlet for your feelings and emotions. Just do not think much and go with flow. All the very best.

Masturbation has nothing to do with brain power or memory. The guilt around it may have caused enough stress to cause a lot of distraction and therefore there might have been some memory loss.You may be under this stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out if there is any other disturbance and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or calisthenics exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil or coconut oil instead, 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. But you must have short term memory to convert it into long-term memory. So the emphasis must be in activating good short term memory, ideally and always. 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

Among your understandable symptoms, you seem to have an emotionally labile mood where you tend to lose control on your anger, feel depressed for things that don't go your way and you attempted self harm twice. All these symptoms suggest a form of personality disorder or a mood disorder which needs a complete evaluation for a definitive diagnosis and management. Please consult a psychiatrist preferably with a family member for further management.

Hii I am 16 years old I hve became chainsmoker day by day can you help to stop.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop smoking permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from smoking during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from smoking you will feel a strong craving to smoke a cigarette whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of nicotine. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine.

Dear, at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Stress Management - Ways To Deal With It!

Stress Management - Ways To Deal With It!

Stress can be defined as the way in which human body responds to any kind of threat or demand. When you feel stressed, the central nervous system releases some “stress hormones” like cortisol and adrenaline which trigger the whole body for urgent action. For successful stress management, you will have to practice techniques that particularly work for you. This is because what may work for others may not be as helpful for you and vice versa. Also the way, stress manifests itself differs from individual to individual. However, practicing these basic techniques may help.

Find out the habits that make you stressful:

  1. It is absolutely easy to know what is making you feel helpless and stressed out and this is the first thing you must do for yourself.
  2. You should now try to ignore your thoughts, sadness and behaviors that constantly make you stressful. By doing this, you will be able to understand whether it is really the demand from different aspects of your life or it is you who is contributing to the stress.
  3. You may start maintaining a stress journal where you will jot down what has made you stressful and how you felt about it and finally, how you reacted. You can continue keeping it until you see significant improvements.

Eliminate unhealthy habits with healthy coping strategies:

  1. Relax and contemplate about how you try to manage stress presently. Do you take any medications and how far are they effective in managing your stress?
  2. There are some people who resort to smoking, taking anti-depressants, withdrawing from family and loved ones, sleeping more than needed and taking out the stress on other people. You should also consider the long-term effects of your present coping strategies.
  3. If you find that your coping strategies are not quite effective, it is probably time to change and replace them with healthy habits.

Get up and start moving:

  1. Physical activities can help you to a great extent when you are willing to cope up with the daily stress. That doesn’t mean you will have to become an athlete to reduce stress.
  2. Spending an hour doing free hand exercises or even at the gym can be considerably beneficial.
  3. This is because when you perform some physical activity, it releases endorphins which are known as “happy hormones.” This can boost your mood and burn out the frustration and anger that are putting you down.
  4. Start following these easy steps today to see desirable reduction in stress levels.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am suffering Very high depression and fobia last 15 years treatment are running but problem is standing so what I do?
I hope you are combining medication with some counseling. This is extremely important and you will experience additional benefits and will learn some coping skills and techniques which will carry you in good stead. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night 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 scorching 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. 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 every day and learn to be contented 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Antidepressants do not have side effects which cannot be managed. Depression has worse effects on health and general well being of a person than side effects of medications if any. Lithium tests are advised usually if you already are taking any medications for your problem. It is a mood stabilizer and used for resistant relapsing depressions or bipolar disorders. Consult online for any queries and assistance.

General Physician,
In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time?

Ways To Deal With Your Child's Addiction With Sweets!

Ways To Deal With Your Child's Addiction With Sweets!

If your child has become increasingly addicted to sweets and other sugary items, this addiction can lead to certain behavioral problems (like mood swings, irritability, anger, etc) in children. Moreover, a high sugar intake can lead to your child falling prey to serious diseases and conditions, including diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular diseases. 

Here's what you can do to break your child's indulgent habits and wean him from ill-health causing culprits like cakes, ice creams, candies, chocolates and rich and creamy desserts etc.

1. Practice what you preach -
In order to develop healthy eating habits in your child, it is imperative for you as a parent to lead by example. When it comes to weaning your child from sugary foods and sweets, you yourself should limit your intake. So, if you tell your child to avoid sweets but love sweets yourself, you'd be setting a bad example by eating them yourself and not letting your child have them. The best thing to do is to be a role model to your child as children learn everything from their parents. 

2. Curb consumption of sugar by deferring intake to a later date -
Instead of depriving your child completely, it would prove to be more useful to tell them that they could have sweets on some other day. This is because if you deny him his indulgence, your child would invariably go on an eating spree the moment an opportunity arises. A study on a group of restrained eaters and non-diet individuals revealed that restrained eaters were found to consume more food than the non-dieting individuals. Not knowing when they could have their favourite foods again, they went on an eating spree.
Make frequent yet small offerings of sweets while explaining to him the importance of moderation and why he/she shouldn't overindulge but space out sugar intake.

3. Try the 90/10 rule - 
Teaching older children the 90/10 principle is another sure-shot way of breaking your child?'s addiction to sweets. The rule calls for 90% of the diet to be made up of healthy food with the remaining 10% being devoted to foods your child wants to indulge in such as junk food, sweets or foods with high sugar content. The total calorie intake that arises from consumption of about 10% or 1-2 fun foods is only about 100-200 calories everyday. 

4. Present your child with healthy alternatives to sugary items -
The next time your child wants to indulge in his sugar craving, instead of giving a processed sugary food, give healthier sweet foods like dates, honey or a fresh sweet fruit. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Homeopath,
You need to increase your concentration power. Try to stay away from your mobile phone as much as you can. Do some regular exercise or running which will increase the flow of blood to your brain. Be stress free. Try to practice meditation. 10-15 mins of meditation will do magic if you can do it regularly.

It will give you tremendous relief if you see a good psychologist regularly. All the hurt that is deep inside you will get an outlet making you very light and comfortable. You can begin by online consultation with a psychologist of your choice from the comfort of your home/office. You can talk about your problem in a totally confidential manner and get to know the doctor with whom you are likely to interact on a regular basis for treatment. Online consultation will save you the botheration of travel to the psychologist and help you to assess for yourself if you at all need to go for face to face treatment or a video chat from your room/office is good enough. If you find an online consultation helpful, continue with it or simply try some other means.

It is difficult to prescribe medicines for anxiety without taking a detailed history, I am sure you have the contact number and email of your treating Dr. If he is not available please go to the Psychiatrist only and not other doctor. All anxiety pills are addicting and will cause side effects in the long run. You have to treat the root cause and not the symptoms. Take a consult for specific advise for treating your anxiety using natural therapy which involves lifestyle and dietary changes.
