All About Depression in Children

All About Depression in Children

Depression in children is not a very uncommon phenomenon. But if the feeling of sadness persists over a period of time with little or no change to their behavior, then it can be seen as a symptom of depression. Children who are suffering from depression need immediate and utmost care as negligence may cause severe long term effects on the child. Read on to find more about them.

Symptoms:
Symptoms that indicate childhood depression vary. Some of the different symptoms which indicate depression are:

  1. Social withdrawal
  2. Irritability
  3. Feeling of worthlessness
  4. Difficulty in concentrating
  5. Reduced ability to function during events
  6. Continuous feelings of sadness
  7. Physical complaints

Causes:

  1. Depression in children can be caused due to the combination of a multitude of reasons.
  2. Children from a family history of depression are more likely to be suffering from depression.
  3. Similarly if the parents suffer from depression then it is more than likely that the child will also suffer from depression.
  4. Children from conflicted families or children and teens who are prone to substance or alcohol abuse can suffer from depression.
  5. Reasons such as physical health, environment, genetic vulnerability or biochemical disturbance can lead to depression.

Treatment:
The treatment process of depression in children is similar to that of adults and can be treated with psychotherapy and medication. If your child is depressed consult a general physician who after his or her diagnosis may refer you to a psychiatrist. The medical specialist will recommend psychotherapy.

In some instances, a child suffering from depression maybe be suicidal. Parents are advised to be vigilant and observe certain behavioral changes that the child may have adapted to or suddenly switched to.
Some of the signs are mentioned below:

  1. Changes in eating, sleeping or activities
  2. Isolating oneself even from family
  3. Talking of suicide, feeling helpless or hopeless
  4. Increased risk taking behavior
  5. Substance abuse
  6. Giving away possessions

Sessions at first and then opt for antidepressant medication if no significant progress is seen. The best results often result from a combination of prescribed medication along with multiple sessions of psychotherapy.

Dear raana, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

Anxiety and depression often times go together. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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 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 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.

Are You Depressed? It Can Hurt Your Sex Life

PGD(Sexual Medicine & Councelling) , Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Sexologist, Gurgaon
Are You Depressed? It Can Hurt Your Sex Life

Depression is one of those experiences when one may feel sad, lonely, dejected and discouraged. Doubt, anxiety and uncertainty crawl in so much so that they may lead to problems in decision making. A depressed person feels devoid of energy and the motivation to do anything at all seems to have disappeared.

Depression and some antidepressants curb sexual drive. This has a negative effect on the depression as sex releases 'happy hormones'. Thus depression and your sex life share a cyclic relationship. The effect of depression on your sex life is a result of both brain functioning and physical changes in the body.

So if depression is badly ruining your sex life, doing these will help big time:

  1. Depression often makes a person withdraw from others and cease to enjoy any experience. This becomes a thought pattern that cannot be cured with medication. Talking to a counselor can help unlearn these thought patterns and help people form new social bonds. As part of the treatment, the patient will need to find and explore new ways of enjoying sex that can strengthen strained relationships.
  2. Having an open conversation with your partner is key to improving relationships and one's sex life. Talk about your sexual needs and help your partner understand your mental barriers to sex. Find forms of foreplay that appeal to both of you. It is also important for you and your partner to understand that there is no 'standard' to how often you should have sex or how you should feel after it.
  3. Ask your doctor to adjust medication In cases where the antidepressant curbs libido, lowering or adjusting the drug dosage can be a solution to treat the depression without curbing sexual desire. Do not attempt to adjust your medication on your own. Your doctor may also change the drug to another that does not affect your sex drive.

Losing a person who is close to you is very painful. I can imagine how sad you must be. A friend is someone who gives you unconditional support and love. Please understand that you have lost something valuable in your life and if you feel like crying, please cry or share your feelings with someone close to you. Remember, whenever you lose a person, some part of you is also gone with that person, because of your attachment with that person. Give yourself time to understand and mourn the loss. Unfortunately, clock cannot be turned back. Hence you need to understand that you need to continue with your life, without your friend now. It will be difficult initially. Whenever you feel sad, accept your emotions and don't try to push them away. It is important to feel that pain and then understand that, this is part of life. Nothing is for ever. Try to remember all the good times you shared together. Also remember that your friend would have liked you, to have happy and peaceful life. You have lost your friend but your life is there in front of you. You need to move on. Moving on with your life, does not mean you are forgetting your friend. Give yourself enough time to soak in the pain and loss and then start reinvesting in life. Take care.

How can I increase my thinking capacity. And sharp my memory.

BHMS
Alternative Medicine,
Dear, your mind is like any other tool. The more you use the more you know how to use it correctly. Usually recall is a problem rather than a memory. Though it is a vast topic, however, you need to essentially remain calmer, clearer, and relaxed to enhance your recall. Your mind is like any computer. You can keep storing till the time the capacity is full. However, you may not find what you have stored, if the system is cluttered, if enough stored item is not in right folder, if the stored file is not correctly tagged, if the computer slows down due to system overload, unhealthy programming, you need to close down some of the programming, uninstall them correctly and then install the programs which works for you. In short lesser the clutter and chatter and distraction, better is your memory.

What is the solution to avoid the thinking of single thing more then one time in a day?

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
What is the solution to avoid the thinking of single thing more then one time in a day?
The simple truth about our mind is. The more you try to avoid thinking about something, the more you think about it. Our brain does not recognize no - in any form. So when you say I want to avoid thinking about this. What is highlighted and recognizes is. So you will start thinking about this. Now in order to change this pattern of thought, what you need to do is to give a suggestion which is positive. Instead of this repeated thought, what would you like to replace it with? make that as a goal. For example, I would like to focus on that. Every time the thought of this comes, you tell yourself that I want to focus on that. Regular meditation is a wonderful way to make this switch. So try guided meditation to begin with. It is very simple yet effective breath awareness techniques which helps to rewire your brain to something positive. You may goodle guided metitatio audio and you shall be able to find few good ones. Choose the one which you like the most. Do both the things on a regular basis, and you will see positive result in 2 to 4 weeks. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,

Schizophrenia: Types, Causes and Symptoms

M.D Psychiatry , DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Schizophrenia: Types, Causes and Symptoms

What is Schizophrenia?
We all know it as a debilitating mental illness that plagues people across the globe. Schizophrenic patients often feel like they are being overtaken by situations and events that are beyond their control. They may complain of seeing people who are not there or hearing voices where there are none. This happens because the neurotransmitters in the brain of the patient do not function appropriately. There are various types, causes and symptoms of this disease. Read up to know more.

  • Symptoms: Psychotic symptoms like delusion are common in patients suffering from this disease. Also, the patient may be severely blunted in the emotional sense and may bear a lost look and wear a feeling of loss or absence at all times. The thought process or cognition of the patient may also suffer in such cases. Poor concentration and lack of coordination are some symptoms of this kind of suffering. Hallucinations and distorted thought processes also characterise the patient to a great extent. The patient may also display certain typical symptoms like social withdrawal, extreme apathy, and lack of motivation. The patient will also be in an emotionally numb state once the delusions have lessened.
  • Causes: So what causes Schizophrenia, really? While no tests or conclusive examinations exist to pin point the exact diagnosis or cause of the disease, there are many factors that can contribute to the development and progression of the same. Hereditary factors play up in many cases while chemical imbalances in the brain also lead to this condition. The serotonin levels and the functioning of the neurotransmitters are the most significant causes of this disease, in such cases. Excessive abuse of drugs like LSD and cannabis can also contribute to this condition, while family relations and a dysfunctional environment can also lead to this disease.
  • Types: There are many different kinds of Schizophrenia. One of them is Paranoid Schizophrenia, which makes the patient highly suspicious. Disorganised Schizophrenia can lead to incoherence in speech and thought. Catatonic Schizophrenia can cause social withdrawal while Residual Schizophrenia can lead to a complete lack of motivation. Finally, Schizoaffective Disorder can lead to major mood swings.

The various kinds of Schizophrenia are characterised by varying degrees of mood swings, depression, paranoia and delusional thinking. The progression of the disease can be checked with the help of cognitive behavioural therapy, which can help in reprogramming the brain of the patient to a great degree. Rehabilitation programs as well as case management can help in the long run. But the key here is to recognise the symptoms early on and get the treatment or counselling started to reduce the symptoms and their spread.

One of the reasons for hallucinations is psychotic disorder, but keep mind healthy, Simply drink cow's milk in night about 2 hours after dinner three times in a week strictly. Keep your mind busy in reading, studies or services which are constructive. Do take multivitamin tablet like Becozinc two or three times in a week after food. Keep discipline in eating, rest and work timings. Make it a point to do meditation of any genuine process, preferably transcendental meditation. Pl establish your divinity by chanting any Names of God Who you have faith in. Be tolerant and have patience. Pl see" For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, his mind will remain the greatest enemy. And also" From wherever the mind wanders due to its flickering and unsteady nature, one must certainly withdraw it and bring it back under the control of the Self. Hope this helps.

There is nothing to get alarmed. Go meet with a career guidance counselor and do the necessary tests to determine your aptitude and career inclinations. With this you can choose the right options among the many that are available and be on the right track in your job. After that you can decide to either work, or work and study, or study alone to attain the right objectives in life vis-?-vis your profession. This will make you feel fully satisfied and will give you the proper direction for your life.

Don't worry, this chest pain has got nothing to do with your smoking till last year. It is most likely due to muscular cause. Be firm on your resolve of not to smoke, do regular exercise and eat good nouritious food.

Hello Armaan, Loosing someone close to you is a big shock for your mind and it does become very difficult to cope up with that loss. But life goes on and we cannot live in the past forever. You can take homeopathic Ignatia 1M, 4 pills once a day for a week. This medicine has proven to be very effective in reducing the depression caused by such a loss. You will feel much better within 2-3 days with it. Let me know if you need any help. I will be glad to help.
