I am diagnosed as case of atypical depression. From past few years I was not in mood of starting antidepressant medications. So after being seeing positive reviews of people on the internet and support from Lybrate doctors. Finally I got convinced to start medications. So started on tab. bupropion. Even I have seen some reviews on the internet where people are on antidepressants from several years. If antidepressants really works then why people are on antidepressants for years. Is it dependence or wht? I really don't want to knock with someone which will really make me addicted for lifetime.

Hi I am very glad that you asked this question, which many people have in mind. To explain you this I will give you one example. When we get frequent acidity that is mainly because of our wrong eating habit and sometimes other causes. We advise such patients to be on diet and medicines. Once patient stops medicines but goes back to old wrong eating habits, then the condition worsens and he needs to start on medicines again. So is he addicted to medicines or wrong food habits. He needs to change lifestyle with temporary support of medicines. Same way as our thinking is so our actions are and so the brain neurotransmitters released. Constant habit of negative thinking leads to same release of neurotransmitters and person needs to take medicine to correct depression to get these neurotransmitters in balance. He feels better, stops medicines and if he again falls back to same old negative thoughts he will suffer again. But during medications if he takes some thought changing therapies (includes gaining insight in thinking patterns), meditation, to improve his thinking to make himself strong to face adversities of life. He doesn't fall back to same problem whether it's depression or anxiety. Remember thoughts are our mental diet. If we are careful of our diet about calories even in biscuits now, then why can't we take some preventive measures of learning some self improvement techniques and mediation. For this reason we suggest our client to take therapy sessions along with medicines. Thank you.

Being In Love Will Lead You To A Healthy Heart And Life

Being In Love Will Lead You To A Healthy Heart And Life

Love:It does make the world go round. With millions of songs and movies that have this emotion in its center, can it really be any other way? From early life, love acts as a security blanket from our parents, a growing up adventure with siblings and an out of the world experience with pets. When you learn to care and love, it becomes a life habit that helps you find happiness in all situations.

In several Harvard studies over the years on finding the 'secret of happiness'and the connection between happiness, health, and love, one common undisputed fact emerged that love and good relationships keep you healthier and happier. There really is no medicine like having someone to love and share a life with. Note that you need these reasons for being in love but it is great to know them any way.

  1. The heart and love connection: Our heart has been connected with the emotion of love for so many reasons. Historically, the heart was thought to be the seat to thinking, emotions and memories. It beating extra hard during excitement and love gave an automatic connection to the two. This popular notion continued to take center stage even after it was scientifically proven that the heart only pumped blood while the brain took up other functionalities. The association remains strong until date where the beating heart as a life source is associate with love - which makes life a happy place.
  2. Love can boost your immune system: A research by Ronald Glazer and Jan Kiecolt-Glaser suggested that couples who engaged in positive conflict resolution had a higher functioning immune system than those who didn't. Which means, if you get into an argument, you need to play fair and play nice. Couples who argued and stonewalled showed a larger decline in their immediate immune system functioning. Some connection!
  3. Love more, live longer: According to a 2004 study by the CDC, married couples had the lowest mortality rates. Generally speaking, people who are in committed, loving relationships experience less stress which translates to improved heart health. Happy and loving relationships also coax us into giving up risky behaviours like smoking, especially when you want to raise a family. This in turn propels a healthy lifestyle.
  4. It can reduce your pain: Pain is a feeling when we are physically harmed internally or externally and its intensity is controlled by our brain. But the heart plays an equally important role in its intensity - i.e. reducing it. If you hold the hand of the person you love, it can minimize your feelings of pain. No wonder then that women in labor hold their husband's hand to tide through the pain!
  5. Love can keep your heart happy: Love increases the feeling of bliss and elevates you into a different sphere of optimism, energy and sense of well being - all of which go into keeping your heart healthy.

Hello I hope you are sleeping well at night that means atleast 6 to 8 hours without getting up in middle not more than once or twice. If our sleep is complete then we are fresh in the morning. Another possibility is that what we have to do during the day if we don't like then to avoid that (e. G. Classes/ stressful job) mind goes into sleep. First sort out these issues. These tips will be useful. * start your day with all positivity and determination * plan out what you have to do and have strong will power to complete those without procrastination. Be strict initially in this matter * go for morning walk. This boosts endorphins which make us feel energetic. * initially you might need efforts to push yourself to be active. But as mind has fallen for this habit of sleeping, it will soon learn the new way. You just have to break your habit of sleepiness * you may start your day with warm water. It clears digestive system and make us active. Take care.

Hi many adolescents go through the same situation as you are in now. It is the effect of hormones occurring at this age. But this is the exact age to make our career also. In fact this is the time to decide and implement what your goal of life is'girl things' will happen frequently in future also. But time to make your career won't come back. This is not a disease but distraction. You seem to be intelligent boy as you understand the importance of studies and so you are asking how to focus. Your this determination to focus on studies and not to fall pray to distractions will help you. Set your goal. Any time distraction comes remind yourself of it. By disiplining the mind you will be able to concentrate better. When we are walking the stray cats come to us to ask for food if you will give them they will cling on to you. If you will ignore then they won't bother you. Remember to walk your path and ignore'catwalk' you can do it. Take care be happy!

Do You Know about Conversion Disorder?

Do You Know about Conversion Disorder?

Conversion disorder is a psychological disorder in which psychological conflicts get converted into physical symptoms.

The disease is also referred to as a functional neurological symptom disorder. In most cases, this disorder has an impact on your ability to move, your senses, vision, hearing capacity and ability to swallow.

Causative factors

The main cause behind the onset of a conversion disorder is generally a sudden traumatic event (real or imagined). This may also happen due to an emotional conflict or any other mental health disorder, which directly or indirectly affects your brain in an undesirable manner.

Though the exact factors which cause the disease are still unknown, it has been proved by medical researchers that the disorder affects that part of the brain which controls the majority of the senses, muscles, and nerves.

Identification signs

The symptoms of this condition may usually appear immediately after a traumatic event, be it physical or psychological. Some of the most common symptoms of this disorder are listed below.

  • Weakness or paralysis of a body part
  • Loss of body balance
  • Moments of unresponsiveness
  • Abnormal, sudden and abrupt body movements such as tremors
  • Swallowing problems such as lump in the throat

Some of the symptoms of this disorder might also affect the sensory organs, which include:

  • Abnormal numbness of the body
  • Speech related problems or inability to speak (psychological mutism)
  • Vision related problems such as psychological blindness
  • Hearing problems and difficulties

I am 22 years under anti depressant medication from past five years. I just feel inferiority complex and lonely all the time and feel as if I have lost my dream and am doing nothing good. I feel so helpless and get irritated when my family approaches me. What should I do?

Hi what symptoms you mentioned are all because of depression. It is like using mental filter. In depression we see only the negative around us and about us. We make no efforts to see the positives around us. We even forget our own positive achievements and moments in life. Slowly mind sets into this habitual thinking. But there is a way out. As we go to gym to exercise regularly every day if we want to loose weight same way you need to change your this habitual thinking by conscious efforts every day. Everyday write down the positive happenings in your life even if it means the simplest thing like smelling of beautiful flower fragrance that put smile on your face, someone praised you. This will start your brain rewiring what we call as neuroplasticity towards positive change. Also write your achievements till now. Everyday. Even if you have to write same thing again. Continue this for at least 8 weeks. Learn some relaxation exercise, listening to music. Avoid watching emotional serials or movies. Watch and read comedy. Please do continue on medicines as suggested by your psychiatrist and regularly visit to modify the dose if needed. This is equally important as these exercises. Wishing you a good health! warm regards.

I am glad to see your interest in self improvement. That is the sign of recovery. You may learn some meditation or self hypnosis techniques to control mind. Mind goes into negative thoughts like worries in depression by conditioning. Wee can learn to reprogram our mind by deconditioning the old automatic thinking habits. Mindfulness breathing exercise and hypnotherapy you can learn. Books: power of now. Power of your subconscious mind.

Get regular exercise. *Try not to exercise close to bedtime, because it may stimulate you and make it hard to fall asleep. Experts suggest not exercising for at least three to four hours before the time you go to sleep. * Don't eat a heavy meal late in the day. A cup of cold milk before bedtime, however, may help you sleep. *Make your bedroom comfortable. Be sure that it is dark, quiet, and not too warm or too cold. If light is a problem, try a sleeping mask. If noise is a problem, try earplugs. * Follow a routine to help you relax before sleep. Read a book, listen to light instrumentsl music, or take a bath. * If you can't fall asleep and don't feel drowsy, get up and read or do something that is not overly stimulating until you feel sleepy. * If you find yourself lying awake worryingabout things, try making a to-do list before you go to bed. This may help you to not focus on those worries overnight. ***consult professional if the problem persists too long or affects your daily life.

The demands of caregiving can be overwhelming, especially if you feel you have little control over the situation or you’re in over your head. If the stress of caregiving is left unchecked, it can take a toll on your health, relationships, and state of mind—eventually leading to burnout.  *Tips for getting the caregiving help you need: 1. Speak up.  Don’t expect friends and family members to automatically know what you need or how you’re feeling. Be up front about what’s going on with you and the person you’re caring for. If you have concerns or thoughts about how to improve the situation, express them—even if you’re unsure how they’ll be received.  2. Spread the responsibility.  Try to get as many family members involved as possible. Even someone who lives far away can help. You may also want to divide up caregiving tasks. One person can take care of medical responsibilities, another with finances and bills, and another with groceries 3. Say “yes” when someone offers assistance. Don’t be shy about accepting help. Let them feel good about supporting you. It’s smart to have a list ready of small tasks that others could easily take care of, such as picking up groceries or driving your loved one to an appointment. *Give yourself a break: 1. Set aside a minimum of 30 minutes every day for yourself.  Do whatever you enjoy, whether it’s reading, working in the garden, tinkering in your workshop, knitting, playing with the dogs, or watching the game. 2. Find ways to pamper yourself.  Small luxuries can go a long way in relieving stress and boosting your spirits. Take a long warm bath. Buy fresh flowers for the house. Or whatever makes you feel special. 3. Make yourself laugh.  Laughter is an excellent antidote to stress—and a little goes a long way. Read a funny book, watch a comedy (avoid watching emotional serials or movies), or call a friend who makes you laugh. And whenever you can, try to find the humor in everyday situations 4. Visit with friends and share your feelings. The simple act of expressing what you’re going through can be very cathartic. If it’s difficult to leave the house, invite friends over to visit with you over coffee, tea, or dinner. It’s important that you interact with others. Sharing your feelings won’t make you a burden to others. In fact, most friends will be flattered that you trust them enough to confide in them, and it will only strengthen your bond. Mostof the people have to go through this. Have patience and faith. Nothing lasts forever. This too shall pass. Pray. Prayer gives lot of strength. Take care.

It is better to consult professional in mental health care about these medicines rather than starting on your own. Stressful situations do come in our life again and again. The way we look at them create thoughts in our mind and as per thought the brain chemicals which we call neurotransmitters get release and affect our mood and behaviour. So along with medicines the thought management therapies will really help you to handle stress in your life. Cognitive therapy, mindfulness and clinical hypnotherapy aim to change our views and give us better happy life.
