I am upper lower middle class family girl. In my early teenage my father used to abuse me for every silly mistake. Those days I used to console myself and used to escape from that mental stress, by dreaming about a good family husband who is very caring. But now problem is I am cultivated the habit of that. My mind keeps on day dreaming. It's so weird that I can't sit in meeting. As a software developer I will be having meeting every single day. I am not able to focus on anything. Learning capacity has decreased. Every time my mind thinks of having a nice family husband and a child. Also my brain has thought of my children marriage. What weird habit of my brain I don't know. I don't want to take any medication nor even consult any psychiatrist. Please help me out of this.

Your experience suggests that you may be suffering because of "Obsessive imagery" that can be because of "Obsessive Compulsive Disorder" Obsessions make it difficult to pay attention to the task at hand. This is an easily treatable condition usually, but would definitely require meeting a "Psychiatrist" Your apprehension about taking a Psychiatric consultation is reflecting the usual societal perception, but there is a potential for alleviation of your personal suffering that you are otherwise missing. The society at large is not going to spare you for your reduced work efficiency because of symptoms, even if you follow the popular perception. Most of the first line medicines used for treatment of OCD are well tolerated by majority of patients and there is no potential for 'addiction' or 'sleepiness' in contrast to the widespread belief. There are treatment options without use of medications also. The ultimate choice remains yours.

How to increase my brain grasping power. So that what ever I read I can easily remember for my exams? Please doctor tell me.

Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

I guess your father is suspicious about other people. Your father is physically and mentally tired now after working for 55 years. He might be finding it difficult to stay at home and probably does not understand how to spend his time. At this age body and mind cannot work very efficiently and effectively. Keep a check on all his physical parameters and take him to a doctor for a routine check up. If he is physically fit, then encorage him to have a fixed daily routine. Like getting up at fixed time, going for a walk, have breakfast, do pooja or read newspaper, (whatever he would like to do) or go to market to buy small items, go to bed at fixed time etc etc. Encourage him to do some exercise (whatever suits him) and yoga/pranayama etc which will keep him fit mentally as well. Encourage him to meet his friends regularly. Encorage him to take up some hobby" empty mind is devil's workshop" so, somehow he needs to be occupied creatively.

He thinks his voice is like a female. Any one recognize him as female over the phone and he has mind set of being female personality's in his body. He is not depressed about this. And avoiding marriage as marriage has no sense to him.

Hi lybrate-user, I am not sure if it will be convincing for you and I might be wrong here too. But this is what I think it is. It looks like there is need to be liberal about gender identity. Female like voice can be corrected with voice therapy. But a package of personalities like a female is difficult to deal with. Meet the family physician and he/she will be able to guide in a better way. Acceptance is required from the family. Be cautious about what you talk to him. Don't hurt his feeling. Physical damage will heal but mental damage, specifically something like this would harm everybody.

Meditation in morning for 10 mins. Then you do this small exercise: sleep with legs raised up from waist against the wall for 10 mins daily making 90 degree angle. This will help you a lot.

I am 44 male, after my schooling, I started smoking. Initially I started with 4,5 puffs from friends cigarette, it slowly gain and I reached, 4,5 packs, 40-50 cigarettes a day, got bronchitis within 5 or so years. Got treated, dropped my cigarette intake to 80-90 %. Started Guthka that time the cheap one available, like 'Tirangaa' and'555' (brand names ), and I still take it but now the expensive one. Due to some domestic problem in my family, I found some dark and ugly ways to avoid those of my haunting 24*7*365*15 (read, hour, week,year and 15 years) I took to heavy drinking and drugging. I kept drinking for 6 years approx, so much that my hands started to shake if alcohol not consumed. Somehow somehow somehow I shunned drinking, and drugging, after 6 years of heavy uses. But now, from last one year I started to take drugs again in the form of a cough suppressant named'Corex'which I usually consume 100 ml * 3 times a day. I want to overcome it as soon as possible. These things has immensely impacted my married and sexual relationship with my wife. My history is above, treatment needed is, how can I wipe out all the bad effects and side effects already running in my biological systems? Sorry for such a long question, but I couldn't explain it in short. Thanking you.

You certainly have a very addictive personality i.e all the ingredients to make you prone to addiction. That also means that if you give up one form of addiction, you could easily take up another: this is called cross addictions. Much of the damage to your body could be reversed, except brain damage, if you quit all the habits once and for all. This will obviously depend on the extent of damage in some cases where it will become irreversible. A thorough medical and psychiatric evaluation are recommended. You have, underlying all this, a strong hamartic or self-destructive drive which needs to be analysed from a script perspective. Ideally, you should get admitted to a rehabilitation center and genuine and good therapy should help you identify the deep-rooted drives and then you can work on them to deal with the underlying issues to sort your addiction problem. There is some pain, oral issue, rigid value system and, as mentioned above, a script issue to deal with eventually.

Depression - 5 Possible Steps You Can Take To Manage It!

Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Depression - 5 Possible Steps You Can Take To Manage It!

Depression is more than just feeling low or down. It is a serious illness that is caused by various changes in the brain chemistry. There are a lot of factors that cause depression, which range from genetics to change in hormone level, stress, grief, medical conditions and other life circumstances. All these can lead to depression and that is something which does not go away on its own. However, there are a few efficient ways through which patients can deal with depression.

These are as follows:

  1. Exercise: Taking a brisk walk for fifteen to twenty minutes every day can be very healthy, not only for your body,  but also for your mental health as well. Dancing, jogging, cycling and yoga are alternatives as well. Although, people who are depressed might not feel like doing any of those things, but one should try to do them anyway. Once a person gets into the exercising routine, they will start noticing the change in their mood. Deep breathing, yoga exercises and meditation can also help people feel better and less depressed.
  2. Anti-depressants: Three brain chemicals that are responsible for handling your mood are norepinephrine, serotonin and dopamine. During depression, the brain circuits that make use of these chemicals stop working properly. In this case, antidepressants can be very useful. These tweak the chemicals that run through the brain and help improve your overall mood.
  3. PsychotherapyIt is a method through which therapists find out a person’s everyday stressors. This therapy is a powerful treatment for depression. Combining psychotherapy with medications can be even better and more effective. This also makes the symptoms easier to take. When a person talks about his feelings and problems with a stranger, it can help him or her release certain amount of stress.
  4. Social support: Talking to a friend or attending group therapies has proven to be beneficial. However, it is important that the person you talk to is someone who you will feel comfortable around. Therefore, it could be someone you know or someone who empathises with you. This is possible either with your close ones or group therapies where the people you talk with, have been going through the same problem you have.
  5. Meditation: Calmness and meditation can help you channelize your positive energy and thoughts over the negative ones. It can help a person see new perspective, develop forgiveness and compassion. Much like exercise, meditating briefly can help you gain immediate effects. It helps a person get over depression. This happens over time. One might not be successful in releasing their stress at once. It is a process that takes time.

The treatment that you get for your depression will depend on the kind of depression that you have. Some might get psychotherapy while others might get antidepressants or for some, exercise could be enough.
