Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

What are symptoms of depression and anxiety? And is it possible to get back to these things after some incident.

What are symptoms of depression and anxiety?
And is it possible to get back to these things after some incident.
Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Abhi aap aap ke pati ke upar nirbhar hai. Esliye wo aap ka aur aap ke rishtey ka samman nahi karte. Aap ke liye sabse jaruri hai, ki aap kutch paise kamana shuru kare. Aap ya to job kar sakti hai, ya tuitions le sakti hai, ya kutch apna khud ka business shuru kar sakti hai. Phir aap ko kisi ke sahare ki jarurat nahi padegi. Ye karne ke baad aap ka" aatam samman" badh jayega. Phir aap, apne pati se unke affair ke bare mein decision lene ki kid kar sakti hai. Aap chahe to kisi counsellor se baat kare. Aap ko madad mile hi.

Hair styling is essential when you step out. You need to look good at all times in today’s world. But it is necessary that you submit your hair to as less of heat treatment as you can! The heat tends to dry the shaft out making it dry and frizzy which over a period of causes the hair to brittle. The ultimate result will be hair fall.

Be more confident and overcome your fears. Deal with situations as and when they come. Do not try to project your fears. In case of any situation and anybody tries to poke you be courageous and confident enough to not let anybody ride over you. You are the controller of your situation.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. When a person speaks or murmur when in deep thought, it correspond to obsession. No mental disorders. The person should learn cognitive behavior therapy. Take care.

How can I increase my memory. I forget things after some time. Please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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 you are still studying. 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.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Your in-laws are your husbands parents. Your husband has some responsibilities towards them. Your husband responsibility means it is yours too. If your in-laws are bad, you have to correct them. These type of family problems are there in every family. Please live with them and learn to adjust with them. Your husband will understand you. But he has his duties and responsibilities towards his parents. Don't put your husband in mental stress. I suggest online family counseling to you and your husband. Take care.

Even if your cough is not related to your smoking, that you have had this problem for 7-8 days is of concern and tobacco consumption will definitely aggravate it. The lining in the throat is filled with tiny hair like structures called cilia. Cilia are tiny hair-like organelles that reside on the surface of cells. There are two types of cilia: motile and non-motile. The former continuously move in a wave-like fashion in a single direction, while the latter function as sensory organs that respond to stimulus. The most common reason to suffer damaged or paralyzed cilia, however, is smoking. Normally, healthy ones in the bronchial tubes work in sync with specialized cells that produce mucous to capture and remove impurities from the lungs. Smokers, on the other hand, are subjected to about 7,000 toxic chemicals in cigarette smoke, including arsenic, methane, and carbon monoxide. This damages the organelles, and dirt, environmental pollutants, and toxins from cigarette smoke remain in the lungs. Furthermore, these toxins migrate from the lungs via the bloodstream to other organs. In response to the presence of excess irritants, mucous cells in the lungs become stimulated to produce more mucous than they normally would. Of course, with damaged cilia, the lungs have no means of moving the mucous out. This usually results in an unproductive cough. In fact, the damage caused by smoking leaves the smoker at significantly higher risk for frequent respiratory infections, or chronic bronchitis. Continued smoking may eventually lead to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema) or lung cancer. In fact, smoking eventually destroys the cilia, which may then be displaced by an excessive number of basal cells or squamous cells. Over time, these cells may become cancerous. They may also become rogue, escaping through lung tissue and invading other parts of the body. You should just stop smoking and visit an ENT specialist for a check up.

I have a boyfriend and I am in the relation for about 5 years. He is very serious about me and loves me truly. But I feel disrespected most of the times. I feel I am not given the importance. There are many incidents which make me feel so. He never admits his mistakes. Never apologises. He does not take any efforts to convince me or try to talk to me when m angry or upset. On the other hand I take extra efforts when he is angry. He just ignores talking to me in that situation. When hes out with his friends I give him all his space and do not disturb him in betn by my calls or msgs. Only thing I tell him is to cum home early at least by 12 or 12: 30 am. But he never listens to me. It really irritates me. If I talk to him calmly about my issues he is always upto proving himself right. I wait for him till 3 am just to see if he reaches home safely but even if I call him hes very casual and does not respect or appreciate what I do for him. I have already been in tough stages of life since I lost my Brother. I really get frustrated sad and upset most of the times. I get worried about the future. Kindly advice me on how to make him realize my worth. How to control getting angry and be casual if he does not listen to me.

Lybrate-user. Your distraction is a reason of lack of concentration. So try to avoid distraction. And improve concentration try meditation yoga music therapy follow a diary of your self time table so that you can have an organised day and can avoid distractions. Write goid thoughts and achievements and that will improve your confidence. You can have healthy diet dry fruits and can opt for an ayurvedic medicine. Take care!

at two an half months means around 10 weeks, it is safe to undergo MTP (medical termination of pregnancy), under the guidance of an experienced OG cian, done in an approved centre. Medical abortion can many a times lead to serious blood loss and loss of life is a common risk, so better go for surgical intervention.

Dear lybrate-user, Erectile Dysfunction (ED) is the name of your problem. It can happen because of your mental problem (depression, anger) itself or as a side effect of antidepressant tablet or some hormonal or medical cause. Whatever is the cause, it is treatable and you can get back your sexual power. Please get back to the doctor who is treating you for depression and anger, he will take detailed history, assess each one of your drugs and/or order some tests before diagnosis. However don't assume, it is due to side effect and stop the drugs before the doctor changes to some other drug.
