I am having problem to communicate. I don't want to go out of my house. I don't even have much friends. I feel bored all the time. I searched the internet and found that I have social anxiety disorder. Will taking medication help me to get out of this mental problem. Can any one recommend me any medicine with less side effects. Please help me to get out of this situation.

Dear user. Thanks for the question. I can understand. You are suffering from SOCIAL ANXIETY DISORDER. Social anxiety disorder is a chronic mental health condition in which social interactions cause irrational anxiety. For people with social anxiety disorder, everyday social interactions cause irrational anxiety, fear, self-consciousness and embarrassment. Symptoms may include excessive fear of situations in which one may be judged, worry about embarrassment or humiliation or concern about offending someone. Talk therapy or psychotherapy and antidepressants can help increase confidence and improve ability to interact with others. I suggest online psychotherapy and counseling. Take care.

Sir I need brain. Tablet which help to memorize. Is there any brain enhancement tablet or capsule.

Hi lybrate-user, Our brains are powerful organic machines. They control all thought, movement, and sensation while calculating and reacting with blistering speed. They store an immense amount of data as images, text, and concepts. Our brains also regulate thousands of complex functions, usually without bothering the conscious us with the exact details, such as with circadian rhythm, hormone balance, breathing, unconscious activity, and blood flow. This means the brain is constantly working, even when we sleep. Here are some options for you: 1. Coconut Oil - Coconut oil contains medium chain triglycerides that the body uses for energy, leaving glucose for the brain. It also seems to have a beneficial effect on blood sugar, blood pressure, and cholesterol. Anything that benefits the heart and circulation also benefits the brain. 2. Beans and Legumes - Beans and legumes are excellent sources of complex carbohydrates. These complex carbohydrates are also mixed with fiber that slows absorption, giving us a steady supply of glucose for the brain without the risks of sugar spikes associated with many other sugar sources. Beans and legumes are also rich in folate—a B vitamin critical to brain function—and essential omega fatty acids. 3. Broccoli - Broccoli is a superfood for the whole body. It is rich in calcium, vitamin C, B vitamins, beta-carotene, iron, fiber, and vitamin K. These nutrients protect against free radicals, keep blood flowing well, and remove heavy metals that can damage the brain. 4. Nuts - Nuts, especially walnuts and almonds, are extremely good for the brain and nervous system. They are great sources of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, vitamin B6, and vitamin E. Vitamin E has been shown to prevent many forms of dementia by protecting the brain from free radicals, and it improves brain power. Nuts contain some anti-nutrients, like phytic acid. Since we consume a relatively small amount of nuts, this isn’t a huge problem, but they are far healthier if you soak them overnight (about 8 hours) before eating them. 5. Dark Chocolate - The flavonols in chocolate improve blood vessel function, which in turn improves cognitive function and memory. Chocolate also improves mood, can ease pain, and is full of antioxidants. 6. Whole Grains - Whole grains are rich in complex carbohydrates, fiber, and some omega 3 fatty acids that shield the heart and brain from damaging sugar spikes, cholesterol, blood clots, and more. Grains also contain B vitamins that have an effect on blood flow to the brain and mood. Whole grains should be soaked, fermented, sprouted, or grown as microgreens to unlock all their nutritional power and minimize any anti-nutrients. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I am 46 years old man. Since last 5 years I am suffering from depression, anxiety, panic attacks. Lost career. Relationships. Everything. Tried many treatments, no one suggested me to see psychiatrist. After leaving the relationship I have been sexually harassed by so many people, everyone approaching me just for sex, when I refuse they abuse me verbally. Most of them are my school friends, people I knew for many years. Because I am divorcee, and I am so much emotionally and mentally disturb they are trying to take advantage of my situation. I have blocked everyone. I have stopped receiving calls. I have stopped going out. I am so afraid to go out as I can not handle this sexual harassment anymore. I have trying to come back but I dint know no one can giving the opportunity to work any where. I do not know how I am going to spend rest of my life. There is any way that I can live normal life ever again and also I wan work some where last 5 years I have lost my job due to some mistake.

Hello, Good that you approached for support. Certainly ,losing ones job and personal relationships, at the same timecan be very disturbing for anyone because the problems are combined .If in this situation someone who is close to you and loves you can work as a savior. But remember the situations never last for ever.In this situation it would be wise to take help from a close relative or friend who can listen to your problems and guide you with neutrality. Make a list of the qualities you have and trust your capacity. Remember we can all be wrong sometime or the other, that does not mean we are not capable or are lesser than anyone else. Try to keep yourself oriented by reading self help books, motivational videos and by being in positve company .Once you are calm ,such a problem can certainly be handled.

Do not smoke. Nicotine and other chemicals in cigarettes and cigars can cause lung and heart damage. Ask your doctor for nicotine patches.

Anxiety and depression do go hand-in-hand oftentimes. 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.
