Losing a person who is close to you is very painful. I can imagine how sad you must be. A friend is someone who gives you unconditional support and love. Please understand that you have lost something valuable in your life and if you feel like crying, please cry or share your feelings with someone close to you. Remember, whenever you lose a person, some part of you is also gone with that person, because of your attachment with that person. Give yourself time to understand and mourn the loss. Unfortunately, clock cannot be turned back. Hence you need to understand that you need to continue with your life, without your friend now. It will be difficult initially. Whenever you feel sad, accept your emotions and don't try to push them away. It is important to feel that pain and then understand that, this is part of life. Nothing is for ever. Try to remember all the good times you shared together. Also remember that your friend would have liked you, to have happy and peaceful life. You have lost your friend but your life is there in front of you. You need to move on. Moving on with your life, does not mean you are forgetting your friend. Give yourself enough time to soak in the pain and loss and then start reinvesting in life. Take care.

Doctors some days ago I have asked for medicine for removing habits for smoking and drinking but is there any medicine jisko power form me kisi bhi food me mix kar ke dia jaa sakke. please help I am really worried for my papa. Recently my tau ji passed away due to cancer.

if your dad is not suffering from Kidney stones or gall bladder stones, than mix 1 gram lime stone (choona) in 100 gram curd and ask him to eat. lime stone is the best medicine to heal the damage done by alcohol, secondly talk to your father about the horrors of smoking, make him emotional, this is the best way. Some natural tips: The grape diet can actually help you to get rid of alcohol cravings. It is one of the most popular home remedies for quitting alcohol. In this diet, you have to eat grapes for about 25 days. You are not allowed to eat anything else. Wines are made of grapes and if you eat them, you will not crave for alcohol at all. This diet should be followed for about a month in order to leave alcohol completely. This will surely work for you! However if you feel unwell in the middle of this diet then it is advisable that you should discontinue. Dates are one of the oldest and most popular home remedy for getting rid of alcoholism. If you are not able to quit alcohol then this will help you to get rid of it instantly. Alcoholism can be easily treated with the help of dates. You can rub some dates in water and drink the solution twice or thrice in a day. This will help you to get rid of alcohol completely. This remedy has been used by many people and it worked wonders too! You would need to drink the solution for a month in order to see visible results. Alcohol addition is something that affects your body in a negative way. So, have dates as much as you can! Bitter gourd can help you get rid of alcohol and also cure your damaged kidney. alcohol damages the kidney which can also lead to death. You can have bitter gourd juice early in the morning on a daily basis in order to quit alcohol. This remedy will surely work as it has worked for other people. The taste is bitter and not great but you can mix the juice with buttermilk for better taste. Thanks Consult me if still he drinks

Hi there ~ Exercise is something you can do right now to boost your mood. Aim to exercise for 30 minutes or more per day—or break that up into short, 10-minute bursts of activity. A 10-minute walk can improve your mood for two hours. The key to sustaining mood benefits is to exercise regularly. Choose activities you enjoy. You don’t need to train at the gym or run mile after mile. Pick an activity you enjoy, so you’re more likely to stick with it. Find exercises that are continuous and rhythmic. The most benefits for depression come from rhythmic exercise—such as walking, weight training, swimming, martial arts, or dancing—where you move both your arms and legs.

Having a healthy brain is equally important as is staying physically fit. Good mental health is absolutely essential. Apart from regular exercises there are certain foods also which can help you to maintain good mental health.

Below mentioned are few foods, essential for having a healthy brain:

  1. Include Fish in your Diet: If you are a non- vegetarian then include oily fishes like salmon , sardines in your diet. These fishes are replete with omega -3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA. All these are essential for the brain to function efficiently.
  2. Munch on Nuts: Nuts are rich sources of Vitamin E. Vitamin E can help you prevent your brain from Alzheimer's disease. Nuts are also beneficial for elderly people and can help them combat the problem of memory loss.
  3. Keep Preparations with Green Leafy Vegetables on your Menu: Vegetables like cabbage; broccoli is abundant in anti-oxidants. Broccoli is also a good supplement for Vitamin K. These help to develop your memory and also keep brain diseases like Alzheimer's, Dementia at bay.
  4. Have a Sweet Tooth for Blueberries: This fruit is rich in anti oxidants, vitamin C and K. It helps to deal with problems like memory loss, Alzheimer's and Dementia.
  5. Add Eggs to your Breakfast Menu: Eggs are rich in choline and also protein. It acts as a very good food for developing a healthy brain.
  6. Get Addicted to Avocadoes: Avocadoes help to tackle problems like hypertension, blood pressure and also help in smooth flowing of blood. They also contain Vitamin K and C which help in memory development.
  7. Go for Whole Grains: Whole grains like wheat flour, flour, oatmeal provide energy to your brain. They supply glucose and are thus considered to be very good brain foods.

The above mentioned foods are easily available and can help you to develop a healthy brain.

Hi Doctor, I'm an happy individual, but I don't enjoy the company of people, around me and I am very short tempered what should I do? Please suggest?

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

High Functioning Depression - Signs You Are Suffering From It!

High Functioning Depression - Signs You Are Suffering From It!

Depression is often equated with isolation and brooding but this is not always the case. Many people may actually suffer from depression without showing the typical symptoms of this condition. Hence, this form of depression may go unnoticed for many years. Such cases are known as high-functioning depression.

Some of the symptoms of this condition include:

  1. Having difficulty expressing happiness: Though a person may be able to work normally, a person suffering from high-functioning depression will find it difficult to express emotions such as happiness. Thus he or she may not know how to act in the event of a promotion at work, the beginning of a new relationship or any other such happy events. In such cases, the happiness a person experiences from these events is temporary and muted.
  2. Lowered energy levels: Unlike not being able to get out of bed when suffering from typical forms of depression, a person suffering from high-functioning depression can follow his or her usual routine. However, they often find themselves lacking the energy they would normally have and feel the need to put extra effort into their normal tasks. This reduces the amount of satisfaction derived from completing tasks.
  3. Persistent self-doubt: While being self-critical is good to a certain extent, a person suffering from this form of depression is rarely satisfied with their work. Even when recognised by their peers or given an award for their work, they feel that this praise is misguided and have trouble accepting it. Thus, suffering from this condition is akin to swimming a race against the current and with additional unnecessary weights.
  4. Substance abuse: Since this form of depression can go undiagnosed for many years, patients often turn to alcohol and other addictive substances in frustration. This can further delay diagnosis as many of the symptoms of this condition can also be attributed to substance abuse.
  5. Feeling like a failure: Many people suffering from this condition feel as though they are constantly wasting time no matter how much they achieve in a day. This can make them feel hopeless and cause frequent changes in jobs.

The good news is that depression can be cured. Hence if someone around you or you, yourself experience such symptoms, talk to a doctor. Alternatively, you could make a few changes in your lifestyle to lift your mood. Try meditating in the morning or fit in some light exercise into your day. You could even take up a new hobby. However, this cannot replace cognitive therapy and psychological counselling. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
