How to attain mental stability? I'm easily distracted and I'm not able to make self decisions.

How to attain mental stability?
I'm easily distracted and I'm not able to make self decisions.
Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Mental ability, stability, ability to take decision etc are products of experience. You are just 21. Based on your experiences, you do take decisions on many occasions. Denying this fact is bad. This could lead to low self esteem and low self confidence. I suggest online counseling and motivation therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear 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. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

I am suffering from mental depression since 2 months! what should I do to overcome it?

I am suffering from mental depression since 2 months! what should I do to overcome it?
Dear lybrate-user, Depression is a chemical disorder just like many medical illnesses. There are many types of depression. Each one of them need different duration of treatment, some of them life long medication like diabetes or BP. Just because you are fine, you can not stop. Will you stop your diabetes medicine and diet as soon as your blood sugar becomes normal? Like that you should continue the drug as long as the doctors prescribes. May be you need the drug for some more time or you need more dose of the drug, or you need to add another antidepressant or therapy. Why do you want to stop a medicine which benefits you to live a better quality of life? Both depression and anxiety are disorders that need treatment. A psychiatrist will be able to treat them after diagnosing the disorder. Suppose, you have temperature of 102* instead of 98.6*, don't you go to a doctor? Like that if depression and anxiety are much higher than what is normal, you should consult the doctor, psychiatrist. As you know, so many disorders can raise your temperature, like that so many disorders may increase your depression and anxiety. The psychiatrist will find out the cause - it may be a hormonal problem, it may be a neurological problem, it may be a bipolar disorder, or it may be a drug side effect. After diagnosing, the psychiatrist will treat accordingly - both depression & anxiety and underlying cause. Please inform all your other family members and friends about it. Just like talking about fever, let us talk about our feelings also. You need to consult a psychiatrist who will request few blood tests to find out other medical diseases causing depression. If they are NORMAL, she/ he may prescribe you a tablet of antidepressant for few months. The dose will be changed according to your improvement and side effects of the tablets. It might take 3-6 weeks for you to improve and be active and happy. You need to take those tablets for many months. Please note that there are many antidepressants that do NOT increase sleep.

Anxiety is a protective mechanism of the body. It prepares us for impending dangers or tasks. A little bit of anxiety is always beneficial for performance. However uncontrolled anxiety can impair performances adversely. If you feel your anxiety impairs your day to day activity or performance in general, then you should not hesitate for treatment under a psychiatrist. The treatment may include counselling, behaviour techniques to tackle anxiety and medications if required. Consult online for further assistance.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - How Exercising Can Help You Overcome?

Ph.D - Ph.D in Psychology, Ph. D - Education
Psychologist, Kakinada
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - How Exercising Can Help You Overcome?

Being a victim or witnessing a horrific accident or personal assault can leave you shocked and scarred. Sometimes, these conditions last for months and years with memories of the traumatic incident triggering intense emotional and physical responses. This is known as post traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. It is a fairly common anxiety syndrome and can be treated in a number of ways including drugs, exercise and psychotherapy. However, this treatment aims only to control the disorder and there is no known cure for PTSD as yet.

Exercise not only keeps the body fit, but also helps the body release endorphins. Endorphins help fight stress, fear and pain. Thus, exercising helps focus on the body and its movements instead of your fears. It can also help elevate the mood of a person. Low to moderate intensity exercising is ideal for a PTSD patient. Aerobics, pilates, yoga or martial arts like tai chi are known to be effective ways of reducing stress and anxiety in PTSD patients. Breathing exercises like pranayama can also help calm and relax the mind.

Exercise for a PTSD patient should be planned in repetitive sets. This enables the person to slowly master the type of exercise being done and regain control and confidence in himself. It also needs to be predictable so as to avoid triggering a PTSD emotional or physical response. Non competitive exercises are better than competitive exercises as it does not create an opportunity for the person to feel stressed. Exercising and practicing breathing techniques can also help a person analyze himself and his response to stressful situations. By understanding their reactions, a person can slowly bring about changes to handle stress in a better way.

For a PTSD patient, exercise should not be seen as a group activity but as an individual effort to increase self control. Patience is key here both for the patient and the therapist. It is also necessary for the person to have realistic goals from his exercise regimen. An exercise program for PTSD patients also needs to be flexible. In order to meet the needs of a patient, it may need to be changed in accordance to the medication he is under. Small incidents like having a flat tire when cycling can trigger anxiety in a person suffering from PTSD. However, if dealt with correctly, it can bolster confidence in the long run.

Lastly, exercising also helps improve self-image and build confidence which helps a PTSD patient break out of his protective shell and socialize with others. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

Last month I did my abortion coz of my health issues n from then I'm very depressed n feel lonely.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (UWS, Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Last month I did my abortion coz of my health issues n from then I'm very depressed n feel lonely.
I am sorry for your loss. An abortion is like a loss of a loved one. It generates a grief reaction in the mother which can be profound in many. But it is also important to understand that it is natural in the first month or so. It usually goes away in a couple of months. If it persists beyond this period we might have to look for abnormal conditions such as depression. In any case from a psychological standpoint you have to understand some things. The loss is not reversible. So do not try to hold on to it. Accept the loss. Share your thoughts and feelings with near and dear ones, do not keep it to yourself. Spend quality time with family and friends. Reengage and spend more time in hobbies. Sleep and eat well; drink lot of water. Listen to calming music, do yoga and pranayam. You should get well soon. If this state continues for a few more weeks, please consult a psychiatrist.

You are going through extreme grief, which is normal after loss of a love. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, Since your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints. Think about your parents who worked so hard to get you to this level, do not disappoint them. Life has more happiness and disappointment in store for you.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. Your lipid profile looks normal. There is no reason to worry. However, PP glucose level is high. Normal is <140 mg. Your level is showing pre-diabetes state. Which means there is every possibility of developing diabetes in near future if care is not taken. At this stage it is preventable. If you adapt a modified lifestyle, then you can remain free from it. With a BMI of 30.30 kgs/M2 you are already grade 1 obese. That is an invitation for diabetes. Your Ideal Body Weight (IBW) should be 62 kgs. To prevent developing diabetes you have to reduce weight, exercise regularly and also control your dietary intake. If you have any doubts please come back, Thanks.

Top Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Stress!

BHMS, MD-Homeopathy, PGPC - Preventive Cardiology
Homeopath, Delhi
Top Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Stress!

Stress is a condition in which we feel frustrated, angry or worried and anxious due to circumstances we find ourselves in.

Stress also takes the form of different diseases in your body, if it is left untreated. Even when you are faced with the same situations, it can cause a different stress response in different people.

Here are a few homeopathic remedies to help calm an anxious person:

  1. Argentum Nitricum: Argentum Nitricum is also known as nitrate of silver. This is helpful in cases where anxiety makes a person insecure and unsure of what to do. When you're anxious, you are likely to crave for something sweet and feel very hot. Both these are cyclic symptoms of anxiety, and can worsen the situation if not dealt with. However, Argentum Nitricum helps calm the digestive effects of sugar and cool the body to keep anxiety levels in check.
  2. Arsenicum Album: Arsenicum Album is a constitutional remedy that can treat both chronic and acute problems. This works well on people who are worried about safety and security. If issues like health, money and break-ins are the cause of your anxiety, this homeopathic remedy is ideal for you. It also helps deal with restlessness.
  3. Kali Phosphoricum: Kali Phosphoricum is a potassium phosphate that helps calm people when overwhelmed by anxiety attacks. This is suitable for people who are easily stressed, over sensitive, insecure, irritable and despondent. It also helps deal with the after effects of grief and fright. Physical ailments such as fatigue, dullness and lack of energy that are a result of anxiety can also be treated with this bio-chemic salt.
  4. Aconite Napellus: Aconite Napellus is made from a purple flowering plant by the same name. it has a number of uses, primary among which is to control anxiety. This is one of the best homeopathic remedies for sudden, intense anxiety attacks and for post traumatic anxiety. It also helps deal with after effects of anxiety such as memory weakness, restlessness, oversensitivity and spells of rage.

My brother imagine a story and he is telling tht this story is real nd day by day telling a new story his brain is not stable so wat 2 do

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I think that your brother may be suffering from the early stages of psychosis (if this is a recent development), and needs the urgent intervention of a psychiatrist. He will tend to make-up situations and then feel compelled to believe or assume them to be real. He may be gradually getting disconnected from reality. I, myself, am presuming this from the limited information you have given. Ideally you should take him to a psychiatrist soon for an assessment and some medical intervention as the doctor feels fit. Along with the medical advice he will need to seek parallel therapy, so seek the help of a counselor is advised too. The combination of medicine and counseling will help him stabilize and lead a normal life. Otherwise his condition may deteriorate and it may become very difficult to alleviate later on.

Take a break. Your muscles need to repair themselves before you put them to work again. Otherwise it may lead to injury. In fact, even when you become more regular with your gymming you will need to let your muscles rest for a day or two between workouts. They grow when they are resting. No need to take any pain killer.

Certainly not. Masturbation doesn't cause prostate cancer. But you can try to come out of this addiction by channelising your mind and energy to somewhere else. Towards more concrete goal.

Not for detox per se. You can, however, put yourself on an exercise program, get adequate sleep, drink a lot of fluids in the form of water and juices, and do meditation. Anyway, you will detoxify quite naturally within a month of quitting.
