I have been through depression since last year after my father passed away. I get angry to such an extent that I could harm someone but somehow I am able to control it and I lost my confidence and I am not able to concentrate on things.I want to go to a psychiatrist but I am not able to due to some social causes. How could I can get rid of it at home?

You may not need a psychiatrist as yet. However, you describe your plight very well. You have what is called an anger-related depression. This is how it works: if you are angry about something and you feel that it cannot or you cannot resolve it, then you will turn the feeling inwards. Anger is pure energy, it wants to and seeks to vent itself outwards. Unexpressed feelings will then turn inwards and stifle your natural energy to make you feel depleted and lead you into depression. Now it is not possible to suppress this held up feeling for long and one day (which has not yet arrived but you are clearly struggling to contain its expression) it will come in the form of an outburst and you will be completely out of control. This can have serious repercussions and sometimes cause irreparable damage. You will be so embarrassed that you will sink into further depression which will lead to chronic states with more severe outcomes that I don?t wish to name. You must talk to someone about your anger (probably related to your father?s death) ? a counselor is quite adequate. About doing it yourself, if you commit yourself then exercise is the best holistic medicine. Good vigorous workout and aerobic in nature for at least 30 minutes with make the brain produce natural antidepressants called tryptophan. If you did it continuously for 21 days, you will develop a new habit and when you keep at it for 7 more weeks it will be somewhat firmly entrenched. You still need to talk to someone.

Health Tip:
Worrying has become a national pastime. Whether you're worrying about repaying your college loan, having job stability in an unstable economy or making sure your toddler hits all the developmental milestones at the right times, there's no shortage of material for mind sweat.

Especially for those of us interested in wellness, it can almost feel tiring to be told the importance of "letting go," "relaxing" and "unwinding." While this advice is ultimately right, there's also good reason we might feel inclined to resist it. The simple reason? Biology: all of our brains are wired to worry.

Basically, the same brain circuits that make for super human intelligence in our frontal lobes (allowing decision making, problem solving, and planning) also produce worry. For your brain, the only difference between worrying and planning is the amount of emotional involvement and self-oriented processing in a specific part of the brain. Of course, we all know worrying is charged with more negative emotions.

But your brain's number one priority is keeping you alive, and it's evolved to do that very well. Sometimes, worrying is the body's response to danger, an evolutionary mechanism to keep you alive.

But you can take concrete steps to climb out of the worry trap. You have to learn to soothe and guide your thinking brain and calm it's fear circuit. Here are some ways to begin:

1. Cultivate greater awareness about your emotions.

The first step to decreasing worry is to recognize when you're doing it. Becoming aware of your emotional state as it occurs enlists your thinking frontal cortex and suppresses the fight or flight amygdala response. In the study Putting Feelings Into Words, when participants simply labeled an emotion, their brains calmed down.

2. Take a deep breath (ideally many of them).

Taking slow, deep breaths through your nose into your diaphragm with slow exhales turns down your nervous system and reduces your body's stress response. This advice is undoubtedly not the most original, but that doesn't mean it's not effective. Think of it this way: if your breathing and heart rate naturally speed up when you are under stress, you can choose to reverse your response — by breathing slowly. This will send your body the message "I am relaxed," and you will become more relaxed as a result. It's like magic, with science.

3. Don't look back or forward.

When you find your mind drifting into the past or future, come back to the present moment, right here right now — a practice known as mindfulness. In this moment, you are OK. Your thoughts are creating your sense of danger. Bringing your awareness back into the now calms the fearful amygdala in your brain and activates your thinking neural circuits. Studies show that with repetition, mindfulness practice can lead to long term, lasting reduction of anxiety and worrying.

4. Pay attention only to what you can control.

Your brain craves control and feels happier and calmer when it just feels more in control — even if it's just an illusion. Feeling in control can reduce anxiety, worrying, and even pain. So, avoid imagining the worst possible scenarios, and instead pay more attention to what is in your control, which modulates brain activity to reduce anxiety.

5. Make a decision, even if you don't really want to.

Simply making a decision about whatever it is that you're worrying invokes your thinking brain, increases dopamine levels, and shifts your brain's perceptual focus on the things that matter the most. Making a decision — any decision — also elevates your perceived control giving your confidence and mood a boost which helps you to take positive action.

6. Go for good enough.

Worrying is often triggered by imposing unrealistic or perfectionist expectations on yourself or others. Don't aim for being the perfect parent; just be a good one. Your kid doesn't have to get into an Ivy League college. They just need to go to college. You don't have to be model thin. You just want to be healthy.

The problem with worry arises when the brain anxiety-circuits activate too frequently and get stuck in the "on" position continually which triggers the body's fear response. This then activates the stress response — which starts a downward spiral ... making you a miserable mess. So rather than make yourself more stressed out by worrying-about-worrying, think of worry as your brain just doing its job. You just don't want it to get too enthusiastic.

After coming to my in laws home within first 6-7 days I came to know that my sister is law has an love affair with a boy who is from my moherinlaws side relationship. So he is from our relative list. As that time I was new to that home as a newly wed bride I thought these were small. Problems and I stood as to. My whole family. Some time I tried to make understand the situation to my mother in law and some time to my sister in laws. As the boy is our relative in laws are not able accept him as their jamai but my sisterinlaw was stubborn she would marry him only. Everyday fightings quarrels are going on. Everyone forgot that they were my lovely days also after all I am a newly wed bride I also have some dreams . No one think about my feelings . These problems make my husband also quiet nervous as she is his only sister. I was really get pissed off the situation they ruined my all festivals which are celebrated after marriage. The situation of the house was very bad. Then at last when I saw that nothing will change it is going on since one year I warned them that please solve the situation or everything will be finished and I came to my mothers house for 15 days. Then when I returned home back after 15 days I saw the situation is quite developed. mother law accepted my sil's relationship the after that that problem solved. When the situation was bad I sometime given support to my sister in law but in laws does not like that. Now my in laws always give more preference to my sister in law, loves her like I am not there. They doesn't give preference to me. I lost my dignity nothing of mine is not liked my them. Now they had problem with me. Some days earlier I made some complain usually as a family talk of my husband to my mother and father in law. My father in law get angry then in then and came near me to give me a slap. That day was the worse day of my life really I got so hurt like lost everything I skip my dinner that day go on crying the whole night. From that day onwards I stop talking much to them I don't used to get out of my room feel weakness, talk to no one much, not getting interest in any thing now the effect of this is also affecting our husband wife relationship. I did not go for outing with husband he also get disturbed with the situation. please suggest after all this what could a newly wedded girl could do.

Hello lybrate user your is quite complicated situation. You wanted things to settle down once it got it disturbed u. I know as newly wedded you must had some dreams but coz of these circumstances it made difficult for u. Raising hand was not a good idea that time your husband should hv intrupted. After all you are his responsibility. Try to think about positive life with him. Today your priority should your both s relationship rather then anything else.

Dear lybrate user...Lack of concentration and making careless mistakes, being restless and anxious about everything, being on the edge always shows that you have a lot of anxiety. If this anxiety is pervasive and is interfering with your social and functional domains of life it is more of an anxiety disorder. I need to know more about your symptom duration for suggesting a better management plan. Take care

Dear lybrate user. Please don’t panic. You must understand ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION. There is nothing called erectile dysfunction while having masturbation. Loosing erection in the initial stages of sex or not having erection at all or having late erection or lack of sexual desire are called erectile dysfunction. Erectile dysfunction can be a sign of a physical or psychological condition. It can cause stress, relationship strain, and low self-confidence. The main symptom is a man's inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. Patients suffering from erectile dysfunction should first be evaluated for any underlying physical and psychological conditions. If treatment of the underlying conditions doesn't help, medications and assistive devices, such as pumps, can be prescribed. Yoga, meditation and diet could be prescribed once we know the basic reasons for it. Two natural treatments for ED that have shown promise are red ginseng and pomegranate juice. Ginseng is thought to increase nitric oxide production, leading to improved blood flow. Pomegranate juice is a potent antioxidant and can help too. Watermelon could also help. Psychological reasons usually get cleared with sex therapy. I suggest online sex therapy. Take care.
