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 consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Hi there ~ having inferiority complex and feeling nervous while attending interviews are symptoms of social phobia or social anxiety. I am sure you are very intelligent and hence you seem to know the answers but are not able to express due to anxiety. I recommend that you visit with a psychologist or a counselor to have yourself treated for social phobia through relaxation techniques and mindfulness meditation. Medications may also be helpful in which case you need to visit with a psychiatrist. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

I like a girl working at my workplace. But I came to know that she has already a boyfriend. But still I can't change my feelings. I try everything to make her happy. But she wants me to stay away from her. Once I left talking to her or looking towards her. But it was hard time for me yet I was doing it for her sake. And now she came again to me asking an another help in her personal life. I did what I could and was happy again. But after her problem got over. She again started ignoring me. Whenever I swear not to think about her. She presents to me with a new problem seeking for help. When I help her, it gives me an incredible pleasure but when she ignores me. I be depressed. Is there something wrong with me? Should I have any clinical cure? Please help me.

Hi lybrate-user, sure she is using you and has no real feeling for you. Sometimes people take advantage of our kindness. Don't think about her in terms of potential partner take her as a colleague that's it. Don't fulfill her demands or favors that she seeks from you, otherwise it will lead to you emotional exploitation. Why go after someone who is already committed when there are so many single girls out there. Consult for therapy, you need some guidance with this issue. All the best.

Due to mental mismatch our sexual relationship is very bad since last 10 yrs, as she is not at all interested in sex from beginning and always dream for her menopause. Now sometimes I feel irritated for this. Now I wanna know what should be the physical impact on my health due to this zero sexual activity?

Hi lybrate-user, There are no major impacts on your health. You may feel anxious or develop cold/flu Less sex may reduce your exposure to germs. Unfortunately, you’ll also skip the immune-boosting benefits of a weekly roll in the hay. Men who have sex infrequently are twice as likely to experience erectile dysfunction as men who do it once a week or more, according to a study published in the American Journal of Medicine, though it may or may not happen. Apart for all this, there can be insecurities in relation. There is more of psychological rather than physical impact. Consult a psychologist for therapy and counseling. All the best.

I am an weed addict and I also try occasional doses of nitrazepam and diazepam. I am trying to quit weed essentially. But am ending up going into chemicals. Please help.

You are happily substituting one substance with another. In other words, you probably have an addictive personality for various reasons and may need top enter a rehabilitation program to completely deal with the issue of addiction. All these substances are known to cause damage to your system and are therefore ill-advised.

He lost in financial status for that reason he become hopeless and escapist. Better to take the help of your elders. Or his friends. Understand the situation properly. If not possible. It is better to take him psychiatrist. Along with psychiatric medicine it is better to consult psychologist for psychological counselling. You know he is very good person. Because of his mental condition. He disturbed and suspect to you. In this stage you do not develop negative thoughts. Understand his mental status is not good. If he reject the medicine then consult psychologist. It is not done only by you. Better to take his or your elders help. It is always best. Or request him or talk like a friend when he is good mood. If he scolds you do not bother wait for right time. You have chance to win one day. Upto that wait. God will helps to you. Do not develop depression status. Remaining time you better to develop a very good friendly relations in office environment. Ok all the best.

Hey I was in relastnshp with a girl due to some problem we broke up.Now can't forget her I m consulting a phyciatrist he gave me some depression tablets.Even though I can't forget her.And tried to suicide myself many time.I don't knw wat can I do.Now I am gonna finish my higher studies.I can't write my public xams well.I got seat in a big college.I want my happiness back n wanna grow big in my future.Please help me and give me some tips to stop thinking of her.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you had broken up and you are still thinking about her, it only means that you loved this girl very much. I hope you were not the one to break up with her. If it was, then you have played a game and now you have regrets. The clock cannot be turned back again, I suppose. The trouble is that you have attempted suicide many times over this love affair. This means that you might have entered into a symbiosis and her leaving has become life-threatening. That itself might be the reason for the breakup. Girls want a relationship where independence is respected and there is no clingy behavior. You have got to look into this aspect of your personality. Are you becoming too dependent on the girl and therefore demanding? This is not a welcome feature for a girl to want to maintain this relationship. You must develop yourself to become independent and responsible. Maintain respectful distance. There are three important developments in an individual that creates an autonomous personality: intimacy, awareness, and spontaneity. Of these, awareness is of great importance: it will help you know yourself internally and to also make you conscious of other people around you. This person is able to meet his needs and that of the other in a balanced manner. You must learn to do this soon. You are still young and have a lot to learn. In fact when you enter this big college, you will meet many girls and will interact with them. If you resolve the symbiosis, you will do really well. Meet with a counselor and describe your longings, needs and wants, openly. Take your parents along and let them describe your entire life till now and the counselor will get an understanding of your plight. Remove everything that is a reminder of this girl and start working on your development. Life is too precious and no one is worth dying for. Demonstrate how you will look after yourself and work on doing that. Learn independence skills and do a personality development course too.

What are symptoms of phobia? What are home remedies? What is diet? What is medical treatment?

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Phobia is different than fear. Mostly people are scared of water, dark, heights, insects etc. Such people may try to avoid such triggers. But this is only normal fear and this is not phobia. Phobia is a morbid and unnatural/irrational fear about something, experienced by some people only, which generally does not create such intense emotions in other people. E. G. If someone might be very scared to see a lizard to the extent that it almost paralyzes that person and can make that person dysfunctional for some time, then it is called phobia. Someone might be very very scared, just to see a piece of" cotton" - then this is called phobia. The triggers for phobia can be totally non-threatening. The general symptoms of phobia are: 1. Very intense, morbid fear about something which is non-threatening. 2. The person with phobia is almost paralyzed for some time, with the trigger. 3. Other people may not be affected at all by the trigger. 4. The person with phobia feels completely helpless at that time and behaves irrationally. 5. The person may experience increased heart beat, shivering, loss of voice, sweating etc. There is no specific diet for phobia. The best treatment for phobia is psychotherapy. A psychotherapist uses different techniques depending on the patient's emotional make up and needs and help the person to come out of it, systematically.

Dear doctor my wife aged 55 years is suffering from psychiatric problem for more than 15 years. She was treated at jipmer initially for nearly 6 six months for her suicide thoughts and later after discharge she started speaking to herself to someone of her imaginary character person and shouts violently often till now. Whenever she started shouting I will give'sernace' medicine mixed in juice without her knowledge as advised by doctor earlier. Also she never cooperate with me to meet a doctor and in fact she thinks that doctors are useless. She is living till now in her own imaginary world shouting most of the time and never bothers the neighbours. She had three children through ceasarian and later undergone uterus operation. I request you to advise me what shall I do further as she refuse to meet a doctor. Thanks and regards.

Your wife is suffereing from schizophrenia, giving medicine like this in juice is not going to be of great help for the future, the main success in treatment of schizophrenia is only through medicines, there are various modalities of treatment like long acting injectable medicine that can be given once in 15 day to one month. Those might be a better option of treatment and getting her to treatment is very crucial as she need to understand that this is a life long treatment and if the medicines are not taken in time they might cause damage to the brain as well.

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.

Sir I am a regular smoker. But I want to stop smoking. Without medicine I can't stop it. Please suggest me a medicine. Thank you.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Hi there ~ start your stop smoking plan with start s = set a quit date. Choose a date within the next two weeks, so you have enough time to prepare without losing your motivation to quit. If you mainly smoke at work, quit on the weekend, so you have a few days to adjust to the change. T = tell family, friends, and co-workers that you plan to quit. Let your friends and family in on your plan to quit smoking and tell them you need their support and encouragement to stop. Look for a quit buddy who wants to stop smoking as well. You can help each other get through the rough times. A = anticipate and plan for the challenges you'll face while quitting. Most people who begin smoking again do so within the first three months. You can help yourself make it through by preparing ahead for common challenges, such as nicotine withdrawal and cigarette cravings. R = remove cigarettes and other tobacco products from your home, car, and work. Throw away all of your cigarettes (no emergency pack!), lighters, ashtrays, and matches. Wash your clothes and freshen up anything that smells like smoke. Shampoo your car, clean your drapes and carpet, and steam your furniture. T = talk to your doctor about getting help to quit. Your doctor can prescribe medication to help with withdrawal and suggest other alternatives. If you can't see a doctor, you can get many products over the counter at your local pharmacy or grocery store, including the nicotine patch, nicotine lozenges, and nicotine gum. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day.

Gynecologist may have asked you to wait to be assured of health/well-being of the child. Else if you have made-up your mind, you can go for it. Also in case your wife does have a c-sec/surgical delivery, you could request the gynecologist to do a tubectomy for her.
