Dear lybrate user, it is better for your daughter to continue the medicines prescribed by the doctor, for the time being. But along with this she certainly needs counselling. She might have a number of issues at this age, which she may not be able to share with anyone. The counselling process will give her an outlet to express herself and understand her own mind. Cbt will work for her, but don't insist on it. Let the counsellor decide which therapy will suit your daughter. Most counsellors would use" integrative therapy" which might be more useful. Once she is able to modify her thought processes and behaviour, her depression might go away, only then after consulting the counsellor and your doctor, you can stop the medication. Take care.

Give up smoking

If you're a smoker, quit. It's the single best thing you can do for your heart health.

Smoking is one of the main causes of coronary heart disease.

A year after giving up, your risk of a heart attack falls to about half that of a smoker.

Dear lybrate user, I can imagine, how frustrating it must be for you. You need to find out what is causing this intense anxiety because of which you are unable to sleep, in spite of the fact that you are very tired. If you are deprived of sleep like this, if will be very harmful for you. I suggest, you to speak to a counsellor about your anxiety and depressive thoughts. The counselling process will help you to calm your mind and then you will be refreshed.

Dear Suvankar. Welcome to lybrate. Lack of enthusiasm and feeling of tiredness could be due to many aspects.

Psychologist,
Do you know why some people accomplish more and generally are much happier in their lives?

The field of positive psychology explains this. Research says, one of the signature strengths that such people have is" gratitude. Gratitude makes them take better care of themselves physically and mentally. It also makes people engage in more proactive and healthy way. It promotes the motivation for exercise, healthy diet and willingness to wriggle out of any negative situations in life. It helps boost your immune system. Since it makes you more optimistic and alert, you cope better with stress and feel healthier.

How to have an attitude of gratitude?

1) be mindful of what you have - being thankful for very small things actually bring a great amount of joy. Have gratitude for small things like sunlight, rain, flowers, a cup of tea, a caring spouse, a child's laughter. It gives us the resilience to cope with tougher situations.

2) keep a gratitude journal - every night before going to bed, write down" what was the best thing that happened to you that day. It fosters better sleep and a sense of well being and satisfaction.

3) reframe challenging situations - it's not the situation but our perception of the situation that makes it challenging. You can reframe your reactions and respond by saying that" I may have a very demanding boss, but I have become more organized, patient. It will help you to attend to your work and be cheerful.

4) practice saying thank you - it's very simple. When you buy a bus ticket, just smile and say'thank you. Feel the first raindrops on your face and smile in gratitude for all the life it brings.

5) focus your attention outwards - according to emmons, a us psychology professor, people who are more aware of the positives in their lives tend to focus their attention outside of themselves. They feel complete, satisfied and fulfilled in their lives and are capable of helping the less fortunate ones.

Myth and fact about Depression

MD - Psychiatry, senior resident, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Myth and fact about Depression

Myth: depression is not a real illness.

Fact: depression is a medical illness; a health problem related to the brain and is the major cause of disability. Research has shown the involvement of abnormal brain activities in patients with depression; hence, it should not be confused with ordinary sadness.

Depression is different for everyone, but just like any illness, it can get better with the right help and support. Your doctor is the most trusted ally for treating depression that can help you to lead a normal, healthy and active life.

General Physician,
Physical illness can trigger depression

If you have depression, a thorough physical exam and careful medical history should be elicited to pinpoint a physical source of the problem for an appropriate treatment.

In depression, it is important to not only look for what?s going on in the mind and brain but also check for what?s going on in the body. Many medical problems have been linked to mood disturbances.

Over fifty percent of heart attack survivors and those with cancer report feeling depressed. Depression is also linked to diabetes, Parkinson?s and other chronic conditions.

Depression too can affect the course of a physical disease. Depression is linked with slower recovery from a heart attack and an increased risk for future heart trouble.

Thyroid disorders also affect mood. Overactive thyroid can cause mania and under active thyroid can cause depression. Other medical conditions associated with mood disorders include certain neurological conditions (multiple sclerosis, Parkinson?s disease, Alzheimer?s), other hormonal imbalances and lack of vitamin B12.

My mother has a depression .She is going through with some hallucinations like to see colours by watching video songs n movies .She called her siblings n friends when she feel something is going wrong n shouting start for 1-2 hrs until she feel relaxed .Sometimes she feel someone in home is doing black magic . What to do doctor HELP her .EVERY YEAR she has a same problem For 2--3 months.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It is much more than depression. She is being treated for psychosis. Are you keeping the doctor informed of these developments? I suggest that you meet with a counselor too to help her with skills to understand the disease and what to do when she has certain impulses. She needs to bring in some discipline into her life, set up certain routines, and follow a tight time-schedule. There must be some interesting activities she needs to do every day. She must exercise both Yoga and some aerobic ones too. Gradually help her meet people. Over a period of time these episodes will disappear with this kind of follow up. If she loves certain hobbies, facilitate that. Let her become productive and occupied with something constructive. If she cooperates, maybe she could be weaned off of the medication to a lower dose. Please do not neglect this any further. At her age she could only degenerate without the combination therapy approach.

Depression - Basic Overview

MBBS, MS-General Surgery , FMAS, FIAGES
General Surgeon, Gurgaon
Depression - Basic Overview

Depression is a serious mental illness in which feelings of sadness and loss of interest last for weeks and interfere with daily life.

There are numerous factors that can trigger the onset of depression, including:

  •  Actions and conditions (like threat, abuse)
  •  Illness (such as cancer or chronic pain),
  •  Social isolation or loneliness and
  • Stressful life events (such as divorce or money problems).
  • Depression can cause deep emotional pain both to the person experiencing it and, often, to that person's close family and friends.

There are several different types of medically recognized depression.

  • Major depression
  • Episodic Depression
  • Post Partum Depression
  • Pre and marital Depression
  • The most common type of depression is called major depression

It occurs when your symptoms interfere with your enjoyment of life or daily functions — including your work, sleep, and eating habits for atleast two weeks straight.

Episodic Depression

Some people experience only one episode of major depression in their life, while others may go through numerous episodes of the illness.

10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

I am 34 Male, suffering with extreme anger and over thinking on small things and avoid but sometimes it is exploring. Do I have any medicine for the same apart from meditations? Thank you,

M.Phill

Medicines are not required for anger until it causes destruction to others/objects. In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything. Once you're calm, express your anger in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. Take a timeout. Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you. Consider seeking help from a psychologist if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.

Dear user. I can understand. The present scenario is not correct for any Indian household. You are actually cheating your wife who has trust on you. By having sex with another woman you are breaching her trust. You should tell your past girl friend to keep herself away from you and your family. Take care.

Avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco. In general, establish a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress. Exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming and cycling. Warm up slowly, however, because sudden, intense exercise can cause headaches. Obesity is also thought to be a factor in migraine headaches, and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight or lose weight.
