Dear lybrate-user, don't worry for some people break ups helped them after that they got better ones, from teenage to till marriage love is very common, but every individual thinks that it is only her problem it is not, some people they express some people will not, when you love you need to build family 1. To have family life we need money 2. To earn money we need to have good job to get into this cycle, most important don't spoil your career, true love always comes back, 1 or 2 sessions of counseling will change your life, counseling can be in-person or audio/video.

I'm suffering from anxiety, depression due to several job losses and also not able to concentrate on studies. I'm 52 years old and feeling very nervous of getting a job and retaining it. What should I do? I'm believing more in super natural powers like psychics, astrologer, gods and saints. How to get confidence and do my work without getting addicted any chemical injection or tablets. Is anything related to English medicine like Valium or other antidepressants which will make my mood stay clear of all mental stress without having side effects.

hello there are two types of urges mentioned in Ayurveda 1) dharniya vega (urges, should b controlled, but you aren't) like chinta-stress, bhaya-fear, shoka-, krodha-short temper, maan- ego, lobha-greedy etc mental condition you should control yourself 2) adharniya vega (urges that should not be controlled, but you are controling) like sleep, urine, stool, hunger, thirst, yawn, sneeze, vomit etc. so it's too bad live with anxiety. life is a gift. my advises to you are * take life lightly * main problem is how you are reacting matters & incidence of your life & day to day * you can see half filled glass of water by two way: half is still empty(nagative attitude) or half full(positive) * take balance diet * give time for yoga * constipation should removed * you can take brahmi sankhpuspi etc ayurveda medicine * I recommended strongly, go near by ayurveda centre & take shirodhara & Nashya treatment all anti depressants have major side effects. use nature thing as much as possible try to find out reasons of discontinued job & by clearing this starts new job coz life has no failures:)

You may suffer from depression. By using antidepressant you will also feel comfort from pain. For backache consult a physiotherapist and to rule out pathology perform a mri of lumbosacral spine.

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Often I got irritated on small things. I too become angry very quickly. M I in depression?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Often I got irritated on small things. I too become angry very quickly. M I in depression?
Some of the" typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper anger: there is a saying" frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression. Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. Giving up: giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. Loss of confidence: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that if we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself" it is worth it! and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. Stress: is the" wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. Depression: depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. Other reactions: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Learning to deal with frustration.

My friend studying with me had a crush on a boy in our class she never talks to him and neither wanted to be in a relationship as her parents are against this we are taking coaching for neet please help what she must do I wanted to help her in this situation.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, DNB (Psychiatry)
Psychiatrist, Thrissur
Respected Madam, At your tender age, "crushes" are going to come as often as exams and both of them are going to cause a lot of unnecessary stress. Usually a "crush" tends to be associated with a much lesser amount of emotions than "love" and hence is easier to get over. In you friend's case, as your exams are fast approaching, I would be inclined to side with her parents at present, as "crushes" can be highly distracting and have a catastrophic effect on your studies. I would ask your friend to try and concentrate on her studies for now, and to take up the matter once you are done with your exams. This is much easier said than done but like you said, if its only a "crush" she should be able to do it. On the other hand, if he feelings are much more deep-rooted than a "crush" its going to be a lot more difficult and might even need professional help. If that is the case then it would be better to communicate her feelings with to her parents and tell them what she wants but 1st she has to figure out what she wants and nobody, including parents, friends or therapists can help her do that. Take Care and All the Best for your Exams.

MD - Psychiatry

Yes severe stress can lead to metabolic changes inside body and produce seizures, did you get an EEG done. If so what were the results then and now. If a person has single episode of seizure and is seizure free for 2 years, the drugs can be stopped.

How To Manage Stress?

How To Manage Stress?

With today’s lifestyle, it is almost impossible to avoid stress. Each person experiences stress in a different way and can tolerate different levels of stress. For some work is a source of stress while for others it could be strained relationships or financial trouble. Stress, if not dealt correctly can harm a person mentally, emotionally and physically. Stress can also make a person age faster. Hence. it becomes essential to understand how to deal with the wear and tear of stress.

  1. Cut back on caffeine, alcohol and nicotine: Stress can fasten your heartbeat and lead to anxiousness and depression. Turning to nicotine, alcohol or any form of caffeinated drink may temporarily make you feel better but will worsen the situation in the long run. This is because all three of them are considered stimulants. Instead hydrate your body with plenty of water, fresh fruits juices and herbal teas.
  2. Exercise: Regular exercise is beneficial for a healthy mind and body. Exercising give you some time to yourself and gives you a break from whatever may be triggering your stress. Stress also causes the release of hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. This can make you jumpy and tense. However, by exercising these hormones can be put to use and your body can be brought back to a calmer state.
  3. Talk to someone: Stress can lead to anxiety and depression. This can make you socially withdrawn and lead to even more stress. Hence, it is essential to find someone who you can open up to and share your thoughts and experience with. This will also help you make better decisions as stress can cloud your judgement.
  4. Get a good night’s sleep: Stress can affect your sleep cycles and make you either an insomniac or make you sleep excessively. In both cases, you wake up feeling tired and sans any energy to take on the next day. Give yourself a routine of going to bed and waking up at the same time every day to fight these effects of stress and to give your mind time to refresh itself. It will also help to avoid watching television or working on laptops or mobiles for an hour before going to bed.
  5. Prioritize: Seeing a never ending to-do list is one of the most common stress triggers. In such situations, stress can make you unable to complete your tasks efficiently and you’re left either feeling overworked or with an even longer to-do list for the next day. Hence, it is important to learn to prioritise tasks and get them done one at a time. Also, learn to say ‘NO’ to people when you know you do not have the time to take on additional tasks. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

Hi, I am female 31 year old and wanting to quit smoking is there any medication which help me stop and hate the smoke taste ? I have Been smoking for about 12 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, there is medication to ease quitting smoking. Please consult a doctor for the same. To hate smoking here is a suggestion: keep cigarette butts in an ashtray with a little water and cover it. Whenever you feel like smoking just lift the cover and smell it. The stink is so repulsive that you will not feel like taking a cigarette for some time. When the impulse surfaces again, do the same. You have been smoking for a long time now but you can reverse almost all the damage from it by quitting now. Just keep at it till you succeed. Your willingness and desire to want to stop is a huge plus point in your favor for overcoming this malaise. Quitting smoking is very difficult but not impossible due to the following reasons: smoking has certain conditions for the urge to be stimulated. These can vary throughout the day. You need to de-condition around the habit. There is a physical and psychological craving that has to be countered. There are some medicines that ease the craving, for which you will need to consult a doctor. Some measures you can take are: avoid people, activities, and places where the need to smoke is highest. There is also the time of day when the urge is greater; occupy yourself with planned, alternative, and interesting activities. During all these times do deep breathing exercises. Buy some chewing gum or nicotine gum or nicotine patches to tide over the urge. Replace the conditions or associations with new behaviors to affect the drive. Frequent ?no smoking zones? when in need. Tell the whole world that you have given up smoking, and ask for support from all of them. Your oral need may increase so ?pacify? it by indulging in eating, drinking health beverages, sucking on hard candy etc. Persevere in very difficult moments by sticking to your resolution because the impulse will disappear pretty fast. Get the support of an addiction counselor to process the resolution.

Hai. Am 26 years old female teacher. I started to talk with the person just to irritate my friend. Now the problem is unable to be without talking to him. When I'm not getting response from him it's hurting and makes me cry. Always thinking about him. Could you please help me in this regards.

M.Phil clinical Psychology, MS Psychotherapy and Counseling, PGDGC, MSc Psychology
Psychologist, Chennai
The information you have given suggests that you have very limited friends, may be there is none with whom you maintain a frequent contact. When you started talking to this person to irritate somebody else you had a motive to continue that act and you have been doing it so regularly and consistently that has become a habit. More over over a period of time the talk would have become very personal nad you would have started sharing many things which would have given you a feeling of comfort. This habituation is making you feel that by not talking on one day you are missing something that you do regularly and this missing feeling is leading to secondary thoughts that there is some special bonding with the person. This status can happen with any regular activity you do. Start contact your other friends regularly or create a new circle of friends with whom you can interact whenever you feel like talking or sharing some details with others. This can help you to overcome your current turmoil. If you find it difficult consult a psychologist.

How a smoker can keep his lungs in a good condition without hampering smoking for at least of minimum of five cigarettes in a whole day?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
That idea is a pipe dream. Even one cigarette a day is harmful because tobacco smoke contains at least 4000 chemical substances. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. Over a period of time lung patches form and those areas become defunct and will hamper oxygen absorption and you will feel loss of stamina and breathlessness. Things like how much you inhale, how long you retain the smoke and how many cigarettes you smoke will impact the effects of the substance. Ideally you should quit all smoking and live a healthy life, period.

If he is taking alcohol this type of symptom can occur. Atypical epilepsy also will be like this. So take his EEG and brain scan and you will be able to come to a diagnosis After a correct diagnosis you will be able to treat and cure him.
