Do severe depression patients ever get normal im 26 depressed since over one year.

Do severe depression patients ever get normal im 26 depressed since over one year.
Yes. The diagnosis ha to be correct. Go for psychological testing from a qualified and trained psychologist. The report will reveal whether you have psychiatric illness called depression or is it a psychological problem with depression like symptoms. If a psychiatric illness- medicines as prescribed by psychiatrist must be taken. If a psychological problem is diagnosed, medicines will never cure. Then you need psychotherapy from psychologist. Chances of getting well are very high seeing your young age.

Dear , i think you are exaggerating your actual. At the age of 37, degradation of memory is not possible. That happens when you get aged. Amnesia and related problems happens abruptly on shock or neuralgic problems. Don't misguide yourself. Post a private question with all the details and I will explain more to you. Take care.

I was in love with a girl, and it was one sided but extreme. I wanted to marry her. Now the conditions have changed to such an extent that I can marry any girl but not her. I am not able to figure out the main reason, but may be the slight negative attitude she shows towards me. Now I am in a condition where neither I can forgot her, I want to get away from her but internally I still wish I could marry her. This feeling has bring an all time sadness in my mind, thereby affecting my professional and personal lyf. I am unable to concentrate on any damn thing. Please someone suggest what I can actually do to gey rid of all this.

Hi lybrate-user! First of all shld confirm if she has any soft corner towards you. If so express your love towards her. If she accepts well and good. If not leave her and love someone who loves you. It is always better to love someone who loves you more than accepting someone who doesn't love you. You have to higher goals in life, she should actually feel jealous of you stepping higher and higher, achieving success in other aspects of life. You can outburst your emotional distress in achieving, never give up. Come up in life. Love is not in looks it is in both hearts when United leads a happy and peaceful life forever whether arranged or love marriage, if someone is ready to marry you, that means they want you as their lifelong partner sharing ups and downs of marital life only then true love survives and lasts. Try to overcome this by winning that person who is not loving you by achieving all goals in life whether marriage, career or personal life before her. Do not be weak to show her you are not challenging. Try to defeat her by achieving, becoming someone who people around you talk about you outstanding. Take care. Throw away unwanted thoughts. Keep worthy thoughts.

Hi doctor, how are you. I am middle class, male, 36, from india living in a metro city. I lost my father a long time ago and my mother 3 years ago. By profession, I am an un-successful software engineer. My marriage broke few years ago (it was a 3 months marriage, no children) and my wife harassed me a lot due to one sided laws in india. I have a fight with both my sisters. At present, I am living alone (with my dog). In the past few years, I have taken a lot of emotional stress due to which my health deteriorated a lot. Now, my problem is that when ever I get angry, there is a lot of pain in my kidneys. I think there is a huge problem in the lower abdominal part of my body but its not showing anything serious when I conducted the normal whole-body test. What do you suggest about my problem? Should I go for some advanced tests?

Hi doctor,
how are you.

It clearly indicates that when there is no identifiable medical reason for your problem, there is definitely a psychosomatic one for the same. Of course an advanced test may prove me wrong but from the description of all the failed relationships you have had so far and the lack of success at yoru job does indicate a man of many sorrows and stresses. If the underlying reason is not identified, especially emotions, it is very likely that you are giving yourself some bodily ailments and it will be wise to pursue a line of treatment to deal with the emotional component. You will probably save a lot of medical expense and further complications, and learn to live a life of good cheer.

7 Homeopathic Remedies that Help Combat Depression!

Are you suffering from depression? Is it hampering your daily life and activities? Depression is a mental health condition, which is very common in people of all ages around the world. It is a serious medical condition which may occur for several reasons, depending from person to person. Depression should be treated effectively for restoring a healthy state of mind. Among the various modes of depression management, homeopathy is considered to be an effective remedy.

Here is a list of the top homeopathic medicines which are used for tackling depression, along with the symptoms when they are applied:

  1. Arsenicum album: This is an ideal homeopathic medicine for people who worry excessively. It is used in people who are extremely health obsessed. Such people get depressed about failing to reach personal goals in life. The symptoms of such a patient suffering from depression tend to worsen in cold weather, as pain sensitivity increases.
  2. Aurum metallicum: This medicine is effective for workaholic people who have a tendency to feel worthless, despaired and experience suicidal thoughts after failing to achieve personal and professional goals. The symptoms worsen during the night time and during cold seasons. Calming music is beneficial for easing these patients.
  3. Calcarea carbonica: This homeopathic remedy is commonly used in the case of people who become overwhelmed due to work, worry and physical illness of any kind. The development of fatigue, discouragement, confusion, anxiety and self pity are also indicated in such patients. This medicine is also good for depression patients who suffer from sleep disorders, or sweat profusely.
  4. Causticum: This homeopathic medicine is important for curing depression in people who due intense grief resulting from some kind of major loss. The patient may experience forgetfulness and mental dullness. The patient may tend to cry a lot and becomes extra sympathetic towards others.
  5. Cimicifuga: This effective homeopathic remedy is used for people who suffer from bipolarity. They may be quite energetic and talkative during good times, but during periods of depression, they become gloomy and dull. Neck aches, headaches and painful menstrual periods in women are also likely.
  6. Ignatia amara: This homeopathic medicine is used in the case of people who are very sensitive and tend to suppress their feelings of grief and disappointment. They do not want to seem too much defensive, moody, or vulnerable in the eyes of other people. They may burst into laughter and tears all of a sudden without a proper reason. Abdominal cramps, insomnia, and headaches are other symptoms.
  7. Kali phosphoricum: Another effective homeopathic medicine used in the management of depression is Kali phosphoricum. People who need these medicines feel depression after long periods of emotional stress. Nervousness, exhaustion, insomnia, anemia, increased cold sensitivity, and reduced concentration are experienced.

If you also have depression, you, can relate to the gnawing, stubborn and heavy weight of guilt. Depression dampens a person’s reasoning and problem-solving functions. “This is why a person can feel unrealistically negative about himself, feel guilty or responsible for things that he might not truly believe if the depression wasn’t active.” 5 Tips to Help Chip Away at Your Guilt Of course, guilt isn’t something that simply dissolves with several quick fixes. But you can slowly chip away at your guilt. The below tips may help. 1. Move your body. Getting physical will lower cortisol, increase endorphin flow and awaken your senses.” It also helps people with depression think more clearly and feel better overall. 2. Shift your thoughts. “Feelings of guilt can set a depressed individual into a cycle of negative thinking; each thought worsening into a deeper, more hopeless frame of thinking. That’s why working on your thoughts is key. It is suggested to revise negative thoughts into positive thoughts or using positive imagery. 3. Remember guilty thoughts are not facts. It is helpful to remind yourself that your guilt is just a voice. “Once you say, ‘Oh, there’s the guilt,’ you can put some distance between yourself and the guilt.” 4. Try humor. Humor can lighten the heaviness. For many people with depression, guilt is a real and stubborn symptom. It manipulates the facts and exacerbates your mood. But while guilt can be persistent and overwhelming, it also can be managed and minimized. If you have any further queries feel free to contact. Regards, Sukanya Biswas.

Dear Doctor, I would like to know how exactly an anti depressant works? Primarily if the course duration for the medication is for 6 months and after that it needs to be tapered down, I would like to know whether the medicine does the job to permanently restore the chemical imbalance in the brain or it just bring it to normal balance and the person can be subject to another episode during a stressful situation after the course of the medicine. I am asking this as this is a vital information that I am not able to find answers to as I am dealing with a depression affected patient at home and would like to get more education in the background of this treatment and how long is the effect of antidepressants going to stay with the patient. Request a genuine help. Thanks and regards.

I have fallen in deep love with my friend, she is not from my religion - she is hindu brahmin girl. But I am totally mad for her, I feel so attracted towards her that I frequently masturbate imagining her, I watch her photo in my phone for hours, and always think of good moments we shared together, I hear our recorded conversation when I feel low, she just know I like her but she is unaware of my deep feelings for her as I didn't tell her my true feelings. Some times I do feel I love her but I am scared of the consequences it can have on both of us. We both hail from very conservative families. So, marriage is simply impossible, but I really love her and want her to spent her whole life with me. But the problem is I am already in a relationship and she knows that and my GF is her best friend. Because of this she started avoiding me and deliberately moving away from me, I know she too have feelings for me but she is hiding it deep inside her heart for the sake of her friendship or may be fear of society. Please help me what to do now?

M.D in Psychiatry
Psychiatrist,
you know marriage with her is impossible. I believe you eish good for her and never want to harm her. You also have a girl friend who is her friend also. Do justice to this relationship and have a nice life with her. You may come across another girl in life and get attracted to her and think you are in love and can't live without her. So every thing you and your mind desires can not be acquired in life. we have to put boundaries and live in our own limits and lead life. you are in fantasy love with the girl and also believe that the girl also had love for you. This is out wishes and trying to justify our wishes. this is not correct. love your girlfriend more and lead a good life with her.

I Don't have any habits related to smoking or drinking. I don't drink coffee and tea either . I am well built with moderate height of 5.8 . My sexual perspect is good too . My problem - when I get angry, I go berserk. No matter what's in my hand, I use it to throw it away in anger . I never beat women but when I get angry I get so tensed that I beat myself with whatever I have in my hand . My flow of words is also kind of shaggy when I speak during the anger mode . No proper flow of sentence in other words . I get very very arrogant, angry and mad when someone tries to harm my loved ones especially. It's as if someone has occupied my body is how people tell me when I am in anger . Anything that you could help me with in order to stop this problem?

Unless you make up your mind, nothing will work efficiently as expected. You have to choose every time whether you want to get agitated or be patient and behave properly. You have realized that when you get angry you lose your sense of balance and later regret because you make a fool out of your self! its just a matter of time that you can overcome most of your problems provided you have a sincere willingness to change. You can write down your thoughts and reactions in a diary and analyse where you go wrong every time you get angry. Give yourself some time (may be a few months to slow down.) your friends and close relatives can give genuine feedback if you ask them to tell them the truth about your nature. Homeopathy can work wonderfully if a proper case is taken. Till then, work on the few suggestions that I have given.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don; t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

I have smoking habit. please tell me that how can I get rid from it and what are the disadvantages of smoking on body.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I suppose you mean how to be able to stop the habit. That is really good that you want to stop smoking because it is really very harmful. Just the fact that you want to give up smoking is a good starting point. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces substantially. You may also join smokers anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here? s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Hello lybrate user. Not feeling fresh after getting up from sleep, feeling less energetic and tiredness throughout the day may normally be present if they are occasional once a while in a person's life. But if this is the story which is being repeated almost everyday for atleast 2 weeks or more than it needs a close evaluation. At your age having persistent pervasive low mood and lack of interest, lack of concentration, forgetting things, lack of concentration, constant tiredness with having headache or head heaviness may be signs of depression. Other thing which we neet to rule out here is any organic cause for the symptoms. So I suggest you to get your thyroid function test, hemogram and mri brain done. You need to get evaluated closely by a psychiatrist and if there are other signs of depression present you may be started on anti-depressants with expecting good amount of improvement in a month of start of medications. Hoping the best for you. Take care.
