You need to give more details to get a suitable response. Please meet a doctor who can treat you for your condition. You can also meet a counsellor in your city and talk about your depression and hopelessness. That will help you to become aware about yourself and discover reasons to feel hopeful and positive again.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Alcohol dependence is associated with significant physical, mental and social problems. Physically, there can be liver failure, jaundice, vomiting of blood, passing blood in stools, stomach ulcers, damage to nerves of the body, swelling of legs, fluid collection in abdomen, and many more. Mentally, there is irreversible brain damage, worsening of anxiety or depression, triggering of psychosis and mood disorders, dementia, etc. From a social point of view, there may be isolation from neighbors or family, increased abusive behavior to children or spouses, legal problems, accidents, etc. Anti craving medications are available which will help to reduce the craving. Consult a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction.

I am 14 years old and get stress. What to do?

M.Phil clinical Psychology, MS Psychotherapy and Counseling, PGDGC, MSc Psychology
Psychologist,
I am 14 years old and get stress. What to do?
If you are 14 years old the physical and psychological changes associated with puberty and early adolescence may by itself create a lot of stress. This tends to come down once the changes slow down and physiologically you mature into an adult. If you feel that this stress is not associated with the maturation process try to probe the cause of stress, whether its your life style, pressure from people around you, pressure to perform, your own mal-adaptive behavior or your emotional sensitivity. Take the corrective measures and you would be able to overcome the stress. If you find this process also difficult consult me.

As a sports person, you will need your sleep to be normal always. Try these techniques and see how successful you are: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Depression is a neuro chemical disorder. Anxiety is mainly due to wrong sensory perception. Anxiety and panic attacks present itself when your senses and cognition perceive threat from internal or external causes. The treatment includes medicines. But never medicines alone. Treatment should include counselling, psychotherapy, and relaxation therapy. If you don't take this treatment combination, you may have to continue treatment for lifetime. Take care.

Take the help of some family members or common friends and resolve the issues. Everything is possible through dialogue. But certain caution needs to be exercised during this dialogue- do not begin with blaming. In a relationship both parties may fail to fulfill other's expectations. You may have some complaints, so will she - this is never ending. For a marriage to work you will both have to let go of the past and start afresh.

How to contol hypertension without medication?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
The term "hypertension" suggests extra tension. The first and foremost demand on you is to identify the cause of this tension and its management. It mostly has to do with your tendency to get disturbed easily, even for frivolous reasons. You must see which feelings, like sadness, fear, anger and even happiness lie in your system, unexpressed. These feelings do need an outlet every time. If not it will find a suitable organ in your body to express itself and make that organ suffer malfunction or total dysfunction. The favorite organ for most people is the heart, by disturbing the mind. The best is to work on your perception , if you change your perception, you change your response! If you get attached too much to past events, you will feel a lot of sadness and anger. If you get too attached to the future, you will be afraid in anticipation of events not yet manifest. The present is where happiness is found, live only for the day knowing that all your actions are an investment into the future. Learn stress management. Consume a lot of fiber in your diet and have a variety in it too. There is a rock salt found naturally that has low sodium in it. Switch over to that for all future consumption. It is called ?induppu? in the South. Spend time out in the sunlight for at least 30 minutes. Sleep for at least 8 hours a day, preferably more time before midnight. Live in peace with everybody. Do not hold grudges. Forgive and move on. Reduce you intake of fatty food, alcohol, and of course no smoking at all. You need to start an exercise regimen for the rest of your life. Do become spiritually sound, and do some social work or contribute to the poor and needy.

I am 18 yrs old & suffer from headache n always feeling disappointed by myself want to go abroad but family can't support me so everyday think about suicide.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are very young and have a full life ahead of you. Sometimes when we are not able to get what we want, we need to adjust our wants to cope with the situation. If your parents cannot afford to fund your trip abroad, then that is the reality and you must learn to accept that. People who cannot make these changes to suit the situation end up becoming maladjusted persons and can suffer more problems in life. It is our resilience that is a sign of good mental health. Surely you do not come into that category!!! Please talk to a counselor, either with your parents or without them too, and discuss your problems at length. At your age you will need to see a lot more of life and realize that you are not mature enough to take your life for want of proper understanding of your circumstances. A counselor will do the needful to explain these intricacies of life. Even so, if you have a concrete reason and plan I am sure money can be arranged. To process this you will need a third person like a counselor to find out a way to do this and convince your parents too. There are loans that are available subject to the plan be feasible. Discuss these options and if need be meet with a career guidance counselor to be sure that your aspirations are in tune with your skills and aptitude. That person will also suggest the different ways to raise loans to fulfill your ambitions. But nothing is worth taking your life for. Your anger is making you have headaches and if it is not dealt with soon, you could end up depressed. Don’t be so rigid. Negotiate everything. There is always a way, if you are flexible.

Trust and honesty is the foundation of any relationship. And a relationship can not be forced on anyone. If you really love her respect her choice and decision. Love should a person's strength not weakness. There is nothing like a first love being the truest one. Love is true only when there is freedom for both partners. Both should be able to enjoy each other's company without any material considerations. If you cling to her like this, you will only land up being more miserable. It is better to shift your focus to your goal in life - and start working to achieve it. Once you have a good job and earning you will be able to win her over.

I am suffering from severe depression. Feeling strongly to end my life.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist,
I am suffering from severe depression. Feeling strongly to end my life.
Harming oneself is not the cure of this problem. You have to come up front and discuss your problems with me, so that I can help you out of this. Depression is a common mental disorder and like any other illness it can also be treated with the help of medications and psychological intervention. It is usual to feel like having thoughts to end oneself's life in this illness. But with the help of treatment all these negative thoughts and ideas can be erased from your mind. Discuss your problems with me in details and we'll together plan a management layout to help you come out of this problem.
