I lost my somebody close last year so I am very depressed and lost my strongness please help me.
It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone. You can contact me for further help, if required.

Meet with a counselor first and then if that person recommends a psychiatrist to deal with this issue, do visit one as soon as possible. There may be some developmental issues that may have contributed to this condition. This is a fear-based condition and for some reason, she has not been dealing with childhood fear which has now developed into these repetitive adaptations to seem to need it for normal functioning. The behavior will then become based on magical thinking and certain rituals will become necessary to do normal things making her believe that either the frequency or the ritual is important to its success. This, of course, is a fallacy but there will come a time that even if told the truth, she will believe such things as will defy any logic and she will continue behaving like that even if it cripples her in your daily routines she cannot but help herself. It only appears as though some other force is behind these behaviors and that she is compelled to act in this fashion. That is obviously not true but no one can convince her of anything different. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern with no meaningful outcome; and the compulsiveness is the need to act on those obsessions also in a repeated behavior pattern as though she just cannot help herself, like the excessive washing. There are certain behavioral techniques to be implemented and if they work she may get out of this condition rather easily. If that does not work as desired, then medication has to be introduced, and in combination with counseling much work can be achieved.

Take him to a Urologist who will clear all his doubts. Also need to explore the underlying trigger factors for this type of behaviour .May be after seeing Urologist he might require some counselling also. Nothing to panic He would be fine once he understands his issue. If you want any specific advise take a consult.

I am sorry for your loss. It is normal to feel depressed for few days. Share it with somebody close and do not isolate yourself. Make new friends or spend more time with existing ones. If the problem persists for more than a month, consult a psychiatrist. Remember to eat and sleep properly.

At your age, this claim is serious because there may be unresolved childhood issues that need attention. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. 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.

OCD - Can It Be Controlled?

MBBS, Diploma in Psychological Medicine
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
OCD - Can It Be Controlled?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a type of anxiety disorder in which a person has recurring thoughts and feels the urge to perform certain specific tasks at regular intervals. Living with OCD can very difficult and medications or therapy alone cannot guarantee complete recovery. The patient himself/herself has to take certain steps to win against the disease.

Here are some measures you can take to control the symptoms of OCD to recover faster.

1. Accept the truth: If you cultivate an accepting approach towards the fact that you are suffering from OCD and will experience obsessive thoughts then it will be easier to cope with the situation. You have to convince yourself that the recurring thoughts and compulsions you're having are not real, do not imply anything and will go away soon. This helps you maintain an optimistic approach and accelerate your recovery process.

2. Try to postpone your compulsions: When you have the urge to do certain ritualistic tasks try not to give in to them. Try to suppress the urges by saying to yourself that you will do it later and then involve yourself in normal day to day activities so that the compulsions can't rule you anymore.

3. Divert your attention: When you feel that you are having a recurring thought or compulsion, try to distract yourself by channelizing your thoughts towards some other activity. You will find that as you engage yourself in other activities, the obsessive compulsive thoughts will lose their impact on you and will prove to be less bothering.

4. Tell yourself that ocd is one of the most insignificant things of your life: Reduce the amount of value you impart to the disorder. Try to convince yourself that ocd cannot change your way of living life and you don't need to give in to your recurring thoughts and compulsions every time. Try to believe that you will not let this disorder affect your life in anyway and it's just your brain bringing these thoughts, not you. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

what is happening. There are times when I am really happy and enthusiastic and at times I just want to sleep or sulk or cry about things. I am a final year student doing BDS. I never actually wanted to become a doctor, let alone becoming a dentist. And I have actually started hating this field like anything. I always had an interest in arts and English but I got admitted in a medical college. Interests and profession have become two different things in my life and I am one of those people who do not like being forced things upon. I hate attending my college because it teaches bds. When I am around my friends at the college I am normal. I had always been the creative of the lot, someone who was always good in English. Didn't like studying the conventional way. And lived her dreams. Lately I've been feeling like all of these basic elements have somehow been crushed or taken away from me. I feel so depressed at times that I feel like shouting and hurting myself and at times I am so happy and energetic that I spend one entire day doing tremendously tiring stuff and still am happy and enthusiastic. I am feeling like this might be bipolar syndrome (because I am studying medicine and now know what bipolar syndrome sounds like. Also I've been in a relationship with a guy for about 4 years. He is a great guy and really loves me a lot. Even I love him. I have always been the outgoing type and he is kind of boring. Secondly, he is very sexually active and I am not. Basically, to put it in correct way, I am very Indian in terms of sexuality and sex and stuff. Whereas he is a guy and his needs to be in a physical relationship are much more than mine. But I do not like sex. I've never had it and I don't really like the idea of having sex at such an early age (before wedding). This relationship aspect is much deeper. I would explain it once you reply to my query. But currently I need help!

Dear lybrate-user, I can understand how you may be feeling. The problem is between the heart and the head wanting two very different things. You dreams and desires have been burdened with a BDS degree is what I understand from what you're saying. Doesn't sound like bipolar syndrome, more like anxiety and hyperactivity, you are trying to overcompensate and trying to find happiness wherever you can. I would suggest that you try not to diagnose yourself. Instead start by taking a nice big deep breath. Then put down all that you have been feeling on a sheet of paper, let it al out. You will feel lighter. Next, the boyfriend bit, if he loves you truly which I am assuming that he does since you've been together a while, he will respect your wishes, have an open conversation, you don't have to feel pressured into doing anything that you don't want to do. Again, breathe, you're safe. If you have certain beliefs that's perfectly fine, you can find a middle path. You said there is more, pls feel free to msg me here for a private consult. For the moment, I hoped you feel better. Take care.

Phobia is a condition of being afraid of the event without experience. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which time people have recurring, unwanted thoughts, ideas or sensations (obsessions) that make them feel driven to do something repetitively (compulsions). The repetitive behaviors, such as hand washing, checking on things or cleaning, can significantly interfere with a person’s daily activities and social interactions. Many people have focused thoughts or repetitive behaviors. But these do not disrupt daily life and may add structure or make tasks easier. For people with OCD, thoughts are persistent and unwanted routines and behaviors are rigid and not doing them causes great distress. Many people with OCD know or suspect their obsessions are not true; others may think they could be true (known as poor insight). Even if they know their obsessions are not true, people with OCD have a hard time keeping their focus off the obsessions or stopping the compulsive actions. A diagnosis of OCD requires the presence of obsession and/or compulsions that are time-consuming (more than one hour a day), cause major distress, and impair work, social or other important function.

Taking medicine for controlling anger and regulating sleep will give you short term or temporary relief. But it will have its side effects like getting addicted to the medicine and a few others. Similarly your tolerance level will go up, means, soon you will have to increase the dose to have the same effect on your body. At the age of 34 you are actually damaging your body by taking medicines for managing anger and sleep. Instead of taking medicines, try yoga, pranayama or any other exercise. You may also try counselling. Counselling will help you in identifying and managing your anger triggers/issues. With the help of counselling you will learn to modify your thought processes thereby calming your mind, which will help you in having a sound sleep.

I am going through xtreme depression. The reason might be silly but no boyfriend included. Its about my family. I am a 22 year old girl and I still don't have the right to take my own decisions or going somewhere with my frnds. If I say of letting me do my things then they speak of getting me married. Is there any way out of it?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Thankfully this is not a pathological depression, and is episodal, based entirely on the recent fact that your family is not permissive and may I take the liberty of saying, that they are very conservative. They are probably very worried about your future and marriage, in particular. With this concern they may be too restrictive and controlling. Are you in a community that is closed minded that if you are seen with your friends they will likely think of you as a bad charactered girl! if that is the case, there may be a genuine concern about false rumors spreading about you and thus compromising your reputation. The other concern is whether you have given them any reason for concern about your choice of friends, or any lack of control when you are out, or a poor decision maker, or do they have doubts about your character, or do they not trust this world too much? if there is any truth in any of these, I can understand that they are worried for you. Any which way, here is the way out: you will need to talk to them. If they are not the listening type, then get an uncle or aunt who is respected, involved in this discussion. If that is not allowed, then get a counselor involved. You must try to work it out with whatever resources you have at your beck and call. There is no need to give up. You can also negotiate with them about meeting certain conditions they may stipulate: after all they are concerned for your safety. They may be willing if you took certain cousins or friends, whose families they know. They may agree with certain curfew hours fixed. Now if you prove that you are reliable, they will consent. The other thing is to prove that you are a reliable and disciplined person when you are on your own, this will make them able to trust you. During your discussion make sure that it does not end up in an argument or fight. The key word is to negotiate: there must be some give and take. Their intentions are good but their methods may be questionable. At least you know that they are good parents. But as with any problem communication/discussion is very essential.

How To Deal With Separation Anxiety In Children?

How To Deal With Separation Anxiety In Children?

It is obvious for your little ones to feel anxious and uncomfortable when they have to bid a temporary farewell to you. Though you may be at your wits’ end in dealing with the tantrums, tears and clinginess of your kids, this is a normal stage in the child’s mental growth. With the help of coping strategies, you can help your child come out of the disorder quite easily.

Helping kids deal with separation anxiety:

You can easily aid your kids overcome the separation anxiety by making them feel comfortable and safer. You should try to create a sympathetic ambience at home to make your child feel at ease and talk to the school authorities if they can be a bit compassionate about the child.

  1. Learn the reasons behind the anxiety: When you are aware of what makes your child feel anxious when he or she is separated from you, you will be able to offer better solutions and empathise with your child’s struggles.

  2. Listen to what your child says: As a responsive parent, you must listen to what your child is feeling and have respect towards it. If a child is feeling isolated, he or she can be healed back to a normal state when they are listened to with proper care and sympathy.

  3. Discuss about the issue: A child feels much relieved when he or she knows that there is someone to talk about his or her anxiety and fears. You should refrain from telling kids to stop thinking about it, and instead, tenderly remind the child how bravely he or she survived the last separation without any harm.

  4. Anticipate the difficulty faced by your child: You should be prepared for transition moments in which your child may feel immensely anxious, such as going to school or meeting friends for playing. In case your child feels more comfortable separating from the other parent than you, it is wise to let the other parent handle the separation moment.

  5. Offer a consistent schedule throughout the day: You must never underestimate the significance of predictability for your child with separation anxiety issues. When you offer them a consistent schedule pattern for a day, they can easily cope with the anxiety with the passage of time. In case there are going to be any alterations in the schedule, you must speak with your kids about it ahead of time.

With these small steps, you can help your small child deal with separation anxiety. But in case you feel that the situation is out of control, and you are unable to control your kids, it is probably time to seek professional help.

Dear Vinu, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for further advice. Take care.

Hello, I am Dr Vikass Khanna. I’m working as a counsellor and hypnotist in Gurgaon Delhi. Today I will be talking about depression.

What is depression?

We have all been depressed sometimes in our lives. We’ve all been through ups and downs.

What is clinical depression?

CD is a very vague and broad clubbing of thought patterns. But does depression have a substance, absence of a state you want to be in. Let’s go to the roots of drips. You never visited the roots. The value system of our society which tells us to be someone to be happy to be kind, to be successful is the root of depression. We are always in a state of being someone, be somewhere, we have to be kind, to be more religious, be somewhere. Somewhere where one is not. There lies the conflict of what you are and what you want to be. Life is paly of polar opposites. You have expectations. You will have frustrations. They are eternally linked. If you don’t know the definition of happiness there’s no unhappiness. So why does one want to be in a futuristic state always, all the time, to be someone. As per the culture happiness, expecting something or the other all the time.

Now how do you manage depression?

Either pop a pill, take anti-depressants, which are 3 basically serotonin reuptake inhibitors. They inhibit the serotonin uptake. The chemicals they act till your taking them. In the brain circuits, a lot of adverse effects associated.

What is the other kind of motivation? 

Diversion, meditation, which are again suppressions. This suppressing kind of thought, Will you get rid of depression by that? Can you stop struggling to be free of depression? It is your mind which tells that you’re not happy. you’re sad. You should be somewhere. You should be like this. The same mind tells you to be free of depression. It is a moment, a mental moment, a though moment. Both the things can bring about that change.

Can you be depression free by struggling?

To get rid of it. Or increasing the depression like falling into the trap of depression. Can u let go of this struggle? Can you revisit the roots of depression? Expectations that ideal state, you want to be in. ideal state.

For any help enquiry, you can either come through the platform of lybrate or you can contact me directly on my mobile no. I’m available in Gurgaon and Delhi on appointments.

Thank you
