I've had a very bad relationship with a guy and I feel lost and very depressed now. I do not feel like eating anything and I cannot focus on my studies.becozof this I'm losing weight and and I do not even have friends here for an emotional support. I'm only 17 years old. I know I was way too young for all this but I've been fooled and lied on. And I cannot even share all this stuff with my parents neither can go to a doctor so my friend suggested me to try this app. Please can someone suggest me how to get out of all this? I'm so messed up mentally and I really need some suggestions and tips.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear from a deep love relationship is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Being Alone vs. Being Lonely

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
Being Alone vs. Being Lonely

There are people who feel lonely but are alone and there are those who choose to be alone but are not necessarily alone, i.e. surrounded by people. So what make us feel lonely? Is it just isolation from social life or one can be lonely in the midst of all social activities? Today Psychologist Shivani Sadhoo answers some of the interesting facts and mind factors behind being alone and being lonely.

First understand, loneliness is a universal human emotion, yet it is both a complex and unique to each individual. It is commonly described as a state of solitude or being alone but in reality, loneliness is a state of mind. This state of mind causes people to feel empty, alone and unwanted. People who are lonely often crave human contact, but their state of mind makes it more difficult to form connections with other people. Loneliness as per psychological definition is not necessarily about staying & living physically alone, instead, it is the perception of being alone and isolated that matters the most.

For example, a newly joined office employee, who has difficulty in making friends and making himself/herself noticed, might feel lonely despite being surrounded by hundreds of office mates. Similarly, if a girl or a boy finds it difficult to express his/her pain, fears, feelings through verbal expressions, i.e. by talking, he/she might feel alone among a group of friends who would be all talking about themselves and would consider this person to have no trouble in life.

Loneliness has a wide range of negative effects on both physical and mental health. Some of the health risks associated with loneliness includes:

* Cardiovascular diseases and strokes

* Depression and suicide, 

* Alcoholism and smoking, 

* Progression of Alzheimer's disease

Generally, it’s very difficult to recognize if someone feels lonely and sometimes even the sufferer doesn’t recognize for the whole life that he/she was lonely deep inside.

One can cure loneliness:-

* By first identifying themselves that they suffer from loneliness.

* By realizing themselves that loneliness is a hazardous condition and they should fix it.

* If the person suffers with difficulties to express themselves to others, lacks effective communication skills, feels shy and stressed in social gathering then its advisable to take a help from experts like a mental health professional or a psychologist.

Dear lybrate user, flying lines and things you see are shadows of small bubbles in the tear fluid within your eyes. Nothing to worry about that. Can reduce eye number by eye exercises and nutrition. Take care.

So many things in mind creat insomnia or depression. First you need to relax your body and mind. Don't over think about the situation and take a chill. Things happen for good in life so first except the reality. And secondly start with yoga and pranayama it will definitely help you in attaining your sleep and your thoughts.

Early morning depression are supposed to be more associated with physiological conditions where medicines can be of help. However your can try some life style changes such as trying to make your mornings brisk by involving in physical exercises such as morning walks. Morning walks outside the home can also be a source of meeting people and socilizing which can help you to divert your attention from the preoccupation with your past. Your of" here and now" method to focus on your present may also be helpful. However finding solution to the problems in the current which is associated with the past can also do wonders.

You can overcome by practising meditaion and yoga .Resting at night plays an important role in regulating your daily health and your level of energy throughout a day. Also, not only the quantity but the quality of sleep is also important for a healthy lifestyle. Bedtime habits do play a vital role in shaping up your lifestyle and personality as a whole. Here are many lifestyle habits that can help you to get sound sleep. 1. Make regular and a fixed sleep pattern: Going to sleep and waking up the same time every day helps to maintain an equilibrium in the sleep-wake cycle called diurnal rhythm. If this balance is maintained, then your body will be accustomed to this pattern and as a result, you will feel less tired and fresh throughout the day 2. Maintain a definite dietary regulation: You should also maintain a proper diet plan and observe the consequences/effects of the foods that you are eating and the fluids that you are drinking on your sleep pattern. Taking a good and properly nutritious diet on a daily basis will help you to stay healthy and help your natural sleep-wake cycle. 3. Ensure that your room has mild or dim lighting or darkness if you prefer: The level of light also matters at the time of your sleep. You should definitely make sure that there is a very minimal level of light or darkness around you when you try to sleep. This should be done because the lesser is the light, the more comfortable you are while sleeping. Additionally, the sleep that you will get in a dark room will also be sound and undistorted as it helps keep all the sensory organs calm. 4). Do some relaxing activities before bedtime: Depending on your choice, you should follow simple techniques of relaxation in order to calm down the brain before sleep. Like mediation, Yoga or- deep breathing exercise, muscle relaxing activity, visualizing a peaceful setting/ scenario like a calm garden or beach or mountain area. These activities are just guidelines and you can do anything that helps you to get a relaxing mood and sleep. 5). Avoid daytime naps if you can , But Having short naps of less than one hour is absolutely okay if you are excessively tired during the day or you did not have a sound sleep the previous night. But, if you are consistently having long naps during the day then you are bound to have sleep issues during the night. So it is advisable to sleep early and wake up early for a healthy schedule. 6) Regular exercise: Exercising regularly helps to improve the overall quality of sleep by making you tired at night and sending you to bed more efficiently. Light to mild exercises also helps cure sleep disorders like insomnia.

Are You A Heavy Drinker? 5 Tips to Help You Drink in Moderation!

MBBS, Diploma in Public Health ( Preventive and Social Medicine)
General Physician, Navi Mumbai
Are You A Heavy Drinker? 5 Tips to Help You Drink in Moderation!

While most of us consume alcohol on a social basis, or during certain special and momentous events of our life, there are some people who may be classified as heavy drinkers. There is a certain alcohol limit as per the sex, age and climate that a person can have on a daily basis. When a person overshoots that limit on a daily basis and that too by a large margin, he or she may be known as a heavy drinker.

If you fall in this heavy drinking category, then you may want to go through the following tips in order to bring down and curb your habit so that you can drink in moderation, without causing undue problems for your mental and physical health.

  1. Use bitters: Using bitters, especially digestive bitters, with your drinks can help in bringing down the amount of alcohol that you consume in one go. This can also help your body in digesting the alcohol in a better manner so that you do not wake up with a hangover. Also, the use of digestive bitters can help in detoxification of the liver and prevent it from getting coated with toxins released by alcohol.
  2. Water: It is a well-known fact that one must stay hydrated while drinking so that he/she does not get carried away and drink too much. You can easily have a glass of water between each drink so that you keep the buzz at a stable level rather than letting it get to your head, to a point where you start to ask for even more alcohol. Moreover, before a big party or event, it is best to first have plenty of water so that you do not end up going overboard.
  3. Cleansing juices: The latest diet and fitness fad includes a dose of juices churned from various kinds of fruit and vegetables. You can also try this cleansing juice menu every time you feel like reaching out for a drink. This will help you in keeping things in perspective and then drinking moderately, if and when the need arises.
  4. Set a drink deadline: If you want to cut back on your drinks significantly, then one of the best things to do is to set yourself a drink deadline. As per this deadline, you will set a number where you will stop. For instance, once you have reached 2 to 3 drinks, you will automatically stop so that you do not binge.
  5. Find a support group: It is best to find a support group of friends or even an alcoholic anonymous group so that you can share your experiences and find motivation at the same time. This is especially important for those going through withdrawal symptoms. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

Hello sir, my age is 19 year and my height is low 4'9" My mind concentration is low and I have not remember anythings.

Hello sir,  my age is 19 year and my height is low 4'9" My mind concentration is low and I have not remember anythings.
We all are aware of the fact that our height increases up to a particular age and then it comes to a halt. Height increases up to the age of 18years in women and up to the age of 20 years in men. Increase in height is attributed to the production of growth hormone, called the HGH( Human Growth Hormone), which is secreted by the pituitary gland called the master gland of our body. It is rather difficult to increase height after reaching adulthood as the production of these hormones slowly stops. In most cases, the epiphyses of the long bones are fused as the last bits of cartilaginous tissue in the bones turn into solid hard bones. This prevents any further growth in longer bones. However, if the hormones are released naturally, increase in height can be observed. Increase in height at your age depends upon a no. of factors like 1.Heriditary factor 2.Recorded any increase in height in last 6 months 3.Amount of effort you are putting in for increase in height 4.How much serious are you for your height 5.Will you give 100% if I show you a direction 6.Just do your bit with full determination and leave the rest to time,exercises and medicines.

The hair fall has nothing to do with alcohol consumption per se. You should look at other causes and stress factors that may be causing this problem. Even if you are drinking alcohol from stress, you could be precipitating this effect. You should meet a dermatologist and s/he will guide you as to the cause and treatment approaches.

Dear , as in the case of any addiction, nicotine addiction also affects your depression slowly and systematically. Usually nicotine inhibits and influences gaba receptors of the brain which also controls and triggers serotonin. Because these are interdependent, the best option ios to stop smoking when you are under treatment for depression. Depression is usually treated with a combination of medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes and meditation. For more information, you may contact me. Take care.

First of all, get your eye sight checked. If that is okay, then see if you are anxious or nervous about something. Indulge in some physical exercise, so that your body gets enough oxygen and drink lots of water - dehydration may also cause constriction of nerves and blood vessels thereby causing the headache. Get adequate sleep. If still there is no relief consult a physician

I just broke up with my fiancee who also happens to be my business partner. We were living in. Still have to see him everyday after he coldly walked out on me (rather asked me to move out of my house as his parents were living with us). His issues with me were blown out of proportion by his parents resulting in a bad break up. I cant quit work as lot of families money is at stake cause of the start up. And I can't work with him cause it hurts too much to see him so cold and indifferent. What do I do?

Psychologist,
That is a tough situation to be in. Counselling can help you to sort out your feelings and thoughts and move towards a workable solution. Since you mention that you can't quit due to your financial stake in the company, you could look at how you can manage yourself and your feelings when you see him cold and indifferent. Sometimes a closer look at a broken relationship helps bring a closure and peace of mind. Please click on private chat for a personalised session.

Sir I want to ask that I feel something like memory loss problem, my HB level is 10g, is this is due to HB deficiency.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hb deficiency can make you tired and lethargic due to poor supply of oxygen to the cells and this does impact your output and can lead to difficulties in concentration. Do eat iron rich, well balanced diet and iron supplements prescribed by your doctor. Once the hb comes to it's normal levels resulting in good supply of oxygen to the organs, you will feel more energetic and will be able to focus well. You have not mentioned your age. Some amount of decline happens in memory capacity with age, if you are concerned then you can consult a neurologist.
