Hello Lybrate user, Please contact a professional, (such as a doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, counselor, social worker, etc.) if you have been feeling depressed for 2 or more weeks. Therapy/counseling with a psychologist can be very helpful for people suffering from depression. The length (number of weeks) of therapy however, depends on the individuals needs and/or the type insurance coverage a person may or may not have. Medication is also available for people who are" clinically" depressed and can be taken with or without therapy/counseling. Medication indicated for the treatment of depression must be prescribed by psychiatrist. And start following some exercise: 1. Meet with a friend for a walk Socializing can be exhausting even when we’re not depressed. But contact with a friend can be a great source of emotional support and compassion. Meeting a friend for a walk – with or without a dog – can be a great way of combining casual social interaction with moderate physical activity. If your friend doesn’t know you’re depressed, that’s OK. You’re not obligated to tell them. If they do, that’s OK too. Plus, being out walking can take the edge off any feelings of awkwardness or nervous anxiety, whether talking about depression or any other subject. You’re not exclusively focused on the conversation and person you’re with. Quick tip: If in the past you’ve tended to make plans, then felt too depressed to go ahead with them, see if your friend can come to your place to meet you. Unless you’re having a particularly bad day, knowing your friend is outside – and a polite but persistent knock on the door – may give you the extra kick to get you out and about. 2. Do some gardening or cleaning. Interestingly, the longitudinal review of over 26 years of research specifically included gardening as part of the daily moderate physical activity which can have a profound impact on treating and preventing depression. Have a garden? Get out there and plant some seeds, mow the lawn or get some pruning done. You don’t need to blitz the entire front or back yard in one go, but this activity has the added advantage of being able to see the results of your efforts, which can be a great motivator. Live in an apartment? Give it a little bit of a spruce. Clean a cupboard, the fridge or your bedroom. It’s all activity, particularly any scrubbing or washing. 3. Take a pet for a walk. I received so many positive stories from those with depression who were helped by having a furry friend that I wrote an article about it. Dogs in particular have a lot of rather infectious energy and need to walk (or run) it off every day. So why not combine the energy and love of a four-legged companion with the relatively moderate effort involved in walking and take a stroll in the park? Don’t have a dog? Offer to walk a friend or neighbor’s. That way you do your friend a favor and enjoy the benefits of dog-walking as part of your depression treatment strategy without having to worry about the responsibility of looking after the dog when the walk is over. Anything particularly strenuous in any of that? Didn’t think so, but it still counts as moderate physical activity and can help you feel better and beat or prevent depression if done for 30 minutes each day. Now, in my previous article on how to exercise when depressed, I emphasized the importance of whisker goals as a way to build up your level of physical activity by starting off in small, manageable chunks. Even the above suggestions for moderate exercise can be started off in small manageable chunks for just a few minutes each. Don’t try and do too much too quickly, else the anticipation of future exercise which again takes up lots of time and energy may be enough to put you off any more attempts. Interestingly, the study by Andrea Dunn helps here: it showed that three periods of 10 minutes’ exercise per day can have a similar effect to a single 30-minute block. So, when you feel ready, consider two or three whisker goals of 10 minutes’ period of exercise each day.

Hi lybrate-user kids usually start using 1 word from the age 1 year, and they start speaking in 2-3 word sentence by the age two. Some achieve it early some achieve it little late. It shouldn't be a concern if kid is already active and can understand and act on what is said, also like you have said she is pronouncing papa, mama. This is a good progress, and I believe she will soon surprise you with sentences as she approaches her 2nd birthday. Motivate her to demand things instead of providing things before she asks for it. Sometimes if kids get what they want without speaking up for it, what is the need to speak? I hope that helps. All the best!

It may be a sign of unexpressed feelings of grief. Meet with a counselor and examine the origin of this sadness and deal with it. Every feeling must be expressed, and those feelings if not expressed with find a favorite organ and will express itself in that organ to lead to a malfunction or total dysfunction. This could sometimes lead to a surgery when the actual cause is a emotion. Now that grief has come up there is a possibility to find the source and deal with it forever. Weeping is an excellent expression of grief. But do it with someone (a shoulder to dry on) and you will feel good as well as relieve any organ that is taking the load right now.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. You should behave to your father as if it was before 5 years. You are grown up. You do know that. But for parents, you are still a child and they expect the same behavior from you. Just be with them and behave normal. Talk to them often and do not ignore them. Take care.

Kindly suggest tips to over come the depression facing since very long time quietly.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite, often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Common side effects of escitalopram are constipation; diarrhea; dizziness; drowsiness; dry mouth; headache; increased sweating; light-headedness when you stand or sit up; loss of appetite; nausea; stomach upset; tiredness; trouble sleeping.

Avoid tea and coffee. Yes caffeine will wake you up and give you a buzz right away .But once the effect wears off; you will feel even more tired and sleepy than you were before. This happens because these drinks dehydrate you. •Have a balanced diet: Eat a heavy and healthy breakfast but have a light dinner. If you feel hungry at night, eat fruits, dry fruits, and salads only. Avoid junk food. •Take a 20-30 minute nap during the day. This shall help you to concentrate better. •As you study, whenever you feel tired or sleepy or even stressed, take a minute to practice yoga- breathing exercises. Concentrating on your breath can help bring more oxygen to the brain which will in turn wake the body up and help clear your mind to study better. All the best! :)

You don't have to stop going to gym at all in fact it is good to work out regularly. But in moderation otherwise the muscles will get fatigued easily I think you should do maximum a one and half an hour regularly. Have rest in between giving gap you must drink plenty of water by mouth. Otherwise you will develop cramps.

I am 17 year old .I was scared of teachers .reading books in front of whole class .had less frnds .always felt low when compared with others. I always felt I had no importance in society. I feared of facing school and society .my fear started increasing day by day but then I started overcoming my fear and succeeded many a time but it was temporary it always come back .I started taking drugs before facing any situation or people but the problem was limited up to strangers ,teachers. And public places. But it started haunting when I was with my frnd .even parents .small children .almost everyone .I was helpless at home because I was not able communicate with my parents because of uncontrolled blushing I can't make eye contact with them. I don't know what it is but I will tell my symptoms (1) I feel irrational fear and un comfortable near my nose (2) my only and biggest problem because of this fear I get defenseless ,get offended and embrassed easily when some frnd or someone says something I suddenly feel extreme fear which is out of control and I occur always even I am alone or thinking about the situation. (3) difficult to breath ,and chest pain (4) I never never feel comfort even I am alone that fear and uncomfortable at my nose always are with me sometime it mild I am able to control and sometime it is so extreme that I avoid talking to any one .I feel sudden attacks of fear and I get embrassed and some people even whom I know like my frnd intensely try to scares me by threatening me and I get defenseless and panic attack .I feel like dying because of insults I face by this fear. I have left going out of my house 0 frnds left I am all alone not even my family. (5) I can confidentially say that I am not this fear because sometime when this fear and uncomfortable at my nose goes away for sometime then I feel so relief that I can talk to any one fearlessly ,can talk to girl. (6) I have seen that whenever my attention swift from this fear to some work than I feel little relief and able to complete my breath properly. But for short period (7) I feel that I am not shy but this awkward type of feeling make uncomfortable and terror while facing I need help for something which is unknown for me But I will never give up.

Hello lybrate-user, Your issue is self esteem. You need to work on self esteem, find the root cause of it depleting in you, ask relevant questions to yourself for e.g. Since when is this happening and what happens when this anxiety takes place. You have observed yourself a lot though but you need an intervention of an expert who can help you overcome this scientifically and with confidentiality. Try to bridge the gap between you and your parents this will be a huge help. Drugs are not the answer most certainly and it will only put you behind. Take care
