1 am 50 year old and I am getting irritate on fan sound more crowded area or else if some one talk loudly, and also I talk myself some time and faced lot of trouble in my life. Please help.

You have become very sensitive and high strung to feel this much of irritability at slight noises and disturbances. It means that you are very scared about something and want to be in control to somehow lessen the fear. These sounds will become disturbing, and instead of relating to your fear, you may be getting angry, and people will become less tolerant of you. In the meantime the fear is not dealt with and there is more fear happening: sounds like a vicious cycle, I guess. But my biggest concern is this talking to yourself. It means the stress is very high. Right now you are aware that you talk to yourself but later the condition may become so adverse that you may not know that you are doing this and that can be very problematic. Meet with a psychiatrist and a counselor and discuss your problems and symptoms. They will help you deal with the issues and decide, if medication is required. Please cooperate and be sensible about seeking help. Do not delay as it can get worse and make the problem too difficult to treat in an advanced state. Also do not discontinue the therapy until it is advised by the counselor.

Of late I have been feeling depressed a lot. I went to see psychiatrist. He advised me to get serum lithium test done. Result says lithium level is below 0.21. I want to know if it signifies that I have some mood swing problem, depression, BPD or it is just to administer my prescription. Also I have heard about side effects of antidepressant so I am bit afraid of taking them. Please advice.

Antidepressants do not have side effects which cannot be managed. Depression has worse effects on health and general well being of a person than side effects of medications if any. Lithium tests are advised usually if you already are taking any medications for your problem. It is a mood stabilizer and used for resistant relapsing depressions or bipolar disorders. Consult online for any queries and assistance.

I want to know what is depression please suggest me a good doctor to remove this disease.?

General Physician,
I want to know what is depression
please suggest me a good doctor to remove this disease.?
Depression: an illness that involves the body, mood, and thoughts and that affects the way a person eats, sleeps, feels about himself or herself, and thinks about things. Depression is not the same as a passing blue mood. It is not a sign of personal weakness or a condition that can be wished away. People with depression cannot merely'pull themselves together' and get better. Without treatment, symptoms can last for weeks, months, or years. Appropriate treatment, however, can help most people with depression. The signs and symptoms of depression include loss of interest in activities that were once interesting or enjoyable, including sex; loss of appetite, with weight loss, or overeating, with weight gain; loss of emotional expression (flat affect); a persistently sad, anxious, or empty mood; feelings of hopelessness, pessimism, guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness; social withdrawal; unusual fatigue, low energy level, a feeling of being slowed down; sleep disturbance and insomnia, early-morning awakening or oversleeping; trouble concentrating, remembering, or making decisions; unusual restlessness or irritability; persistent physical problems such as headaches, digestive disorders, or chronic pain that do not respond to treatment, and thoughts of death or suicide or suicide attempts. The principal types of depression are called major depression, dysthymia, and bipolar disease (manic-depressive disease). For personal advice you can ask privately.

I lost somebody and I feel very depressed, feeling bored all the time, what can I do?

M.Sc - Applied Psychology, MS - Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist,
I lost somebody and I feel very depressed, feeling bored all the time, what can I do?
"Life is boring" or" I’m bored with life" or" my life is boring" are all pretty big statements! Perhaps it would help to first figure out exactly what we’re dealing with. It probably can't happen too soon for you, because I wouldn't be in the least surprised if you're depressed as well. I think you may want to try changing your outlook. Try and make a new focus and not focus on what's negative in your life. It's not always easy to feel uplifted or positive, life is not always easy or fun or enjoyable either and that fix but if you put too much emphasis on what is not good then you start to go on a downward spiral and things end up getting a lot worse. Pets are good for company as they don't judge you and generally always around (if you feed them well that is) Find something that gets your dopamine receptors active; vitamin D from the sun, laughing, exercise, finding an activity that makes you happy. Your happiness is in your hands, don't rely on other people to control the way you feel. Take control and be the happiness you want in your life. If still you are not feeling well. Consult any counsellor and psychologist.

How to Release Negative Emotions
Do you sometimes feel oppressed by negative emotions such as fear, anxiety, anger, shame, worthlessness, or depression? Are you open to discover a way to manage them ? and transcend them ? that requires no medication nor years of psychotherapy?

Ancient wisdom traditions of the East ? such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism ? have put a lot of study into the human body and mind, for thousands of years, with the goal of transcending human suffering. With centuries of devoted experiments, revelations, and insight, they discovered that all these negative emotions are not natural to our true being ? they belong to the realm of the ego, our mistaken identity.

Following a certain set of contemplative practices and some lifestyle tweaks, these masters discovered their true being, and saw that in this place the negative emotions do not live.
Out of their compassion and sense of oneness with all beings, they then spent their life teaching us how to find this space of freedom, of peace, of bliss. The insights and techniques that I share in this article come from the Buddhist traditions.

Seeing Clearly
I like to call this the L-I-E-R method (label, introspect, examine, release), because it deals directly with the negative feeling and the lie it carries. It?s not a pretty word but does the job as a mnemonic device.

Label. Recognize that fear has arisen, and label it in your mind. The words you use are important. Don?t say ?I?m afraid? or ?I have fear?; instead say ?fear has arisen?, or ?fear is here?. Do you see how just changing the words already creates a different perspective and more space?
Introspect. Take one to three deep breaths, and bring your attention inside yourself ? this means don?t pay attention to the object, person or circumstance that triggered the emotion, but rather attend to the emotion itself. Accept that the feeling is there.
Examine. Study the feeling deeply: its causes, effects, and nature. Here are some questions to guide your contemplation:
Causes: what exactly triggered this feeling in this moment? There is no need to go to the remote causes of it in your childhood or whatever. For now just stay with what?s happening right here. Once you find the core assumptions or mindsets that are at the root of the feeling, challenge them: is this the only way to see this situation? Is this an empowering way of looking at things?

Effects: how does it feel in my body? Where does the feeling reside in my body? What memories and thoughts swim around this feeling in my mind? What are my thoughts and feelings about this feeling?

Nature: Look inside and ask yourself ?what is this feeling?? Don?t use words to explain, just keep the question alive. Does this feeling have a substance, a color, a size? What is it made of? What?s the vibration of it? Contemplate how this feeling is impermanent. It was not here a few minutes ago ? where did it come from? It will not be here after a few minutes ? where will it disappear into?

Spend as much time as you need in step three. Learn as much as possible about the negative feeling. We are slaves of what we don?t understand. See if this emotion is the real problem, or if it is something else underneath it.

Release. Let it be whatever it is ? but don?t create stories and interpretations around it. And let it go. I can?t tell you how to let go, but intuitively every human being knows how.
The outcome of this process is fourfold: clarity (about what the emotion is); composure (to be with the feeling without being overwhelmed); self-knowledge (understanding the nature of the emotion, the triggers, and the effects in your body); liberation (a sense of separation between the emotion and yourself).

For step number three, you may encounter certain concepts or assumptions that are at the root of the negative feeling. Or perhaps certain subconscious ?decisions? of looking at things a certain way. In this example (fear of rejection), it may be self-judgement about your feeling of worth, or perhaps an attachment to an idea that you need the approval of certain person to ?confirm? that you are worthy of love and value. It may be useful, here, to spend some more time and thoroughly challenge these assumptions and choices.

In some cases, also, the emotion is indeed pointing out to something that needs some attention in your life; then you may need to take some external action, to change something. The ?external fixing? does not prevent this internal process, nor does going through this process requires any external passivity.

After going through this you may find that the negative emotion has already disappeared, lost power, or transformed into something else.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

You need to calm down. You are stressing yourself a lot and maybe thinking much about the breakup. Try to focus your energies and attention to other positive things and involve yourself in activities that help you stay happy. Exercise daily.

In tension or under any circumstances, I tend to forget few things, I am not able to maintain my memory power. U can say I am very enthusiastic. Emotions have very bad effect on my memory, I get carried away by emotions quickly. So please suggest m how to improve my memory, I take stress easily, you can c it on my face. Sometimes it becomes difficult to manage, even the smallest task to handle. I am 23 male, working as a private employee, because of this condition, it is effecting my scores, and questions are being raised, if I can perform well in THE future or not. So please advise me in HOW to improve my memory power.

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Your memory may be fine, it's your attention that seems to be problematic. Adult adhd (attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder) or add (attention-deficit disorder) are very common and highly under-diagnosed. If your brain doesn't pay proper attention to an information then it cannot retain it. Hence you won't remember it. Other signs are difficulty in planning and organizing, easy distractibility, impulsivity, losing your belongings, mismanaging your time, etc. To get a proper diagnosis however, you need to see a good psychiatrist.

I smoke cigarattes and i drink alcholal frequently by that my face is changing into dark what precautions ishould take to make my face little white. Thank you

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The action of cigarette smoke on the skin is to make it age faster and to wrinkle it up, soon. This will give it a darkened appearance. Alcohol consumption too causes damage to the liver and can reflect as dark patches on your face. But you would have had to drink for many years for this effect. So it may not be because of your drinking but I would still advise you to give it up for all the dangers it can pose to your health, career, marriage/relationships, and the mental disturbances it can cause. As far as I know, there is nothing that can whiten your skin except bleaches which can also cause damage to skin, and some prescription drugs whose side effects can cause whitening, again with some bad impact on your health.

Gynecologist may have asked you to wait to be assured of health/well-being of the child. Else if you have made-up your mind, you can go for it. Also in case your wife does have a c-sec/surgical delivery, you could request the gynecologist to do a tubectomy for her.

It happens routinely to many youngsters and its absolutely normal to feel this way because you want to enjoy your life in all the way. Reason being unaware of the basics of sexuality and sexual anatomy of male and females. By unaware I mean is what you are learning via porn watching and hearsay guidance from relatives & friends is all half-hearted, incomplete. Its not reality and this is making you more confused. Just relax and trust yourself. To begin with stop pron watching and begin to love & support yourself then connect an expert one to one or by skype and prepare to learn the correct basics of passionate, beautiful and blissful sexuality of humans with expert sexologist. All the best.
