Dear lybrate-user, I want to know about all of your medicine then only I can advise whether you can stop them or to continue. Very few psychiatric illness do not allow person to go abroad. Even in these illness person can do whatever he wants to do provided he is well maintained on medicine. So do not worry. All d best.

I am suffering from depression from 3 months. It took a serious toll on my career and personality. What should I do?

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

She has what is called OCD, i.e. obsessive compulsive disorder and it can be quite crippling. She must meet with a counselor and doctor immediately and follow their prescriptions. It is good for you parents to attend the meeting with the doctor and throw some light about her childhood.This is a fear-based condition and for some reason, she has not been dealing with childhood fear which has now developed these repetitive adaptations to seem to need it for normal functioning. The behavior will then become based on magical thinking like you describe and certain rituals will become necessary to do normal things making her believe that either the frequency or the ritual is important to its success. This, of course, is a fallacy but there will come a time that even if told the truth, her belief will defy any logic and she will continue behaving like that even if it cripples her in her daily routines. It only appears as though some other force is behind these behaviors and that she is compelled to act in this fashion. That is obviously not true but no one can convince her of anything different. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern with no meaningful outcome and the compulsiveness is the need to act on those obsessions also in a repeated behavior pattern as though she just cannot help herself. There are certain behavioral techniques to be implemented and if they work she may get out of this condition rather easily. If that does not work as desired, then medication has to be introduced, and in combination, much work can be achieved.

Dear , anxiety disorder is not a disease. It is a disorder. Mental disorder not requires medicines. Psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation etc are enough to cure your problem. You must learn and educate yourself about your anxiety disorder. The more you try to" cure" your anxiety, anxiety increases and cure is not possible. You have to change your mindset

Body getting tired. I do not know what to do im really afraid of this. Is this curable?

Masters in Clinical Psychology

Hi lybrate-user, Yes it is curable with the right kind of treatment. Some people get fine after a year or two some have to take for a longer period. Consider it like any other disorder- hypertension etc. So don't bother about medicines your health needs to get better. Stick to one doctor and complete full course eventually the dosage will be reduced. Apart from that for negative thoughts practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult a psychologist for therapy and need not worry. All the best.

How to Maintain Good Physical and Mental Health

How to Maintain Good Physical and Mental Health

The greatest wealth is health. Physical health and mental health are just the two sides of the same coin. One wouldn't be functional without the other. For a person to achieve a complete sense of well-being, he or she needs to have a functional mental and physical health. Although there are hundreds of methods such as yoga, meditation, exercise and annual checkups to maintain good health, people are not aware of them due to many factors such as lack of awareness. Yet the following are some of the habits one can adhere to in their daily lives for a healthy living. 

  1. Eat to stay fit: 'Every time you eat or drink, you are either feeding disease or fighting it.' Eating healthy is crucial as it facilitates and improves the metabolic functions of the body. One should always aim for a balanced diet consisting of adequate amounts of vitamins and minerals. Fresh fruits and vegetables should be included and fried, fat-rich and fast foods should be avoided to the extent possible. The right foods help in fighting foreign substances while the unhealthy ones breed them.
  2. Rest to be at your best: Requisite rest and sufficient sleep is essential for proper functioning of the body. If perhaps, early to bed and early to rise is not your thing, then you might try going to bed at a regular time each day. A good night's sleep rejuvenates both the body and the mind after a day's work. It can be compared to the refreshing cold water that one craves after a long run. So for those who love sleep, you people are possibly on the right track.
  3. Follow an active lifestyle: A sedentary lifestyle is perhaps the cause of a diaspora of diseases in the long run. A daily dose of physical activity is quintessential for maintaining a sound physical and mental health. Physical workouts and exercises lead to an increased circulation of blood throughout the body and help both the body and mind to stay fit. If you do not get enough time for workouts, try running or walking for at least 30 minutes a day. It will help. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a dietitian-nutritionist.

Quit Smoking

MBBS, MD Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Quit Smoking
Will power is the key to quit smoking.
Chewing an elaichi (cardamom) or laung (clove) when you are craving always helps.
Also there are many nicotine replacement methods in the market (not only chewing gum). All these should be used under supervision of the doctor.

Homeopath,
Hello, Thanks to Lybrate, It helps in spreading awareness about Homeopathy. I don't know if you are aware about major systemic side effects of antidepressant. Homeopathy is practiced over 250 years, science is based on food habits, sleep, and sexual behaviour. Please write in private msg for treatment and more details. As homeopathic medicine are proved on healthy human being, it does not have side effects. Your complaints suggestive of stress can be cured with one month treatment.

I'm mentally worried about certain things happening in my life. I passed out 12th on 2015 and due to some problems I dropped one year and took up coaching classes for medical entrances these year. As the exams are approaching I feel like I don't want to study MBBS as I am not going to be qualified. I want to do B. Sc Biotechnology. My parents are forcing me to make sure I get MBBS this year, because they have spend like 50k for coaching and they think it was a waste. And Because they think being a doctor is all about money and Lifetime insurance. They don't support my other choice i. E being a researcher. They constantly say me that it is a long way course and there is too much competition and I may end up being unemployed. They don't understand my ability of thinking and why I want to take biotechnology. Just because they say being Doctor is all about prestiges, money and insurance, I hate doctors and I hate thinking myself as a MBBS student too. Why would I end up taking MBBS because it makes people rich? I want to do something of my own, with my ability. Why would I run after prestige for just the tag before our names! Sometime I feel like ending up my life. I'm not even able to study for the entrances. I'm having sleep problems, sometime I sleep like never going to wake up or sometime I suffer from insomnia, my diet has been changed too. Either I eat too much or I don't eat at all and just lose appetite. I suffer from extreme headache too and not able to cry when I just want to scream and cry sometimes. Please help me through these.

Dear Lybrate user. There are no sure shot techniques to quit this habit. You should use your will power to quit the habit. Otherwise you can go for long term deaddiction therapy. Take care.
