I am 23 years old and I have depressive symptoms and I want to die. What should I do ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are in an anger-related depression and need to meet with a counselor immediately and if that person feels you need to meet with a doctor too, you must do so. You must cooperate with both therapies and be consistent. I suggest that you visit these professionals along with your parents because their involvement is quite critical to your recovery. Would you know what may be causing so much anger and that you feel you cannot express it for various reasons? If it is of recent origin, you could easily pin-point it and take care of it. But I suspect that it may have to do with something in your developmental years, or your family background. In the meantime do the following, sincerely: 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

Lybrate-user, I guess you are already answering your question. Definitely, yoga, exercise, good eating habit and sleeping hygiene, having a support network, family connections are the pillars of an healthy lifestyle. Keep this up and if this is not enough, visit a psychotherapist/psychologist. All the best, mz.

Why does a test taker need to be reevaluated if a disability (such as a learning disability, ADHD or autism spectrum disorder) is lifelong?

Although these conditions are lifelong, with intervention some problem areas can be maintained/ improved over time. Reevaluation helps your therapist / mental health professional assess and judge the effectiveness and direction of therapy and take course accordingly. In case some medication has been prescribed, reevaluation helps monitor the dosage.

Here are some home remedies to cure acidity.  - Skip the aerated drinks as well as the caffeine. Opt for herbal tea instead.  - Have a glass of lukewarm water everyday.  - Include banana, watermelon and cucumber in your daily diet. Watermelon juice is great for curing acidity.  - Nariyal paani is known to soothe the system if you suffer from acidity.  - Drink a glass of milk - everyday.  - Have your last meal at least two to three hours before you hit the sack.  - Keeping long intervals between meals is another cause for acidity. Have small but regular meals.  - Try to avoid pickles, spicy chutneys, vinegar, etc.  - Boil some mint leaves in water and have a glass of this after meals.

Hello Krishna, Sorry to hear that you are suffering from panic and anxiety. Are you on any medications. You should perhaps seek Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to reduce your anxiety. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy will provide you with strategy and technique to deal with anxious thoughts and behavior. You need to also become self-aware so that you realize what thoughts you are feeding in. You can seek help online or offline from an experienced therapist in the field. Regards Stuti

Since birth of my child, our sex life has come to an end Everytime I ask for sex my wife denies for the fear of getting impregnated again despite making her aware of contraception. To be honest; watching porn was the only relief I got but later I seem to have thoughts about sex and female body images all the time and was worried of what if it may turn into a compulsion or obsession and stopped watching porn however the thoughts of sex or images never ceased. I try my best to keep me religious and concentrate on divinity however it fails. I am really worried since I have a baby daughter. How to control this. Kindly help.

It would be highly un-intelligent to concentrate on religion to counter sexual thoughts. It will drive you crazy. Your burning desire not fulfilled is leading to this frustration and sexual chain of thoughts, do not control it, you cannot your wife needs counseling. Persuade her into that, tell frankly how it is affecting you. Remember what is happening to you is not abnormal, do not panic or feel guilty, it will magnify the problem.

Feeling sad for your loss is okay but feeling continuously depressed is not healthy for you. Loss of someone you love is a trauma that you are suffering from. If you are not able to concentrate on other things then you should consider seeking help from a psychiatrist for counselling. You might need some help with cbt, a form of counseling that would certainly help you. Medicines can be given if necessary. Take care.

It is very natural at your age to have an urge of physical relationship and an intimate friend. You are only 20 and actually this is the prime time in your life to focus on your career. Please remember that what ever you can achieve by studying now, will be helpful for you for the rest of the life. If you get distracted now, your studies and career will suffer. And ultimately your future will be affected. So for the time being, do not do anything out of desperation. Do not fall under peer pressure to have a girl friend. For your sexual urge, you can try masturbation. You will be relieved of your tension. But please remember, masturbation is healthy only when you want to relieve yourself of sexual urge. It should not be done as a habit. Compulsive masturbation is harmful for your future relationship.

EMPOWERING YOURSELF - YOU CAN CHOOSE NOT TO BE SAD

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
EMPOWERING YOURSELF - YOU CAN CHOOSE NOT TO BE SAD
1. Avoid thinking about the people who has hurt you

Another person’s hurting words and actions can certainly trigger sad thinking and feelings but remember over thinking on those words will lead you nowhere. Putting your energy to think another people’s actions and behaviour, on which you have no control, can lead you in a state of sadness, self-compassion and hopelessness. Psychologist Shivani Misri Sadhoo suggests on such conditions when another person hurts you, remember yourself that you have no control on another person’s actions and mindset, be it good or bad. So don’t waste your time or energy thinking about the incident. Instead of that, focus on inner conversations, self-analysis and put efforts to improvise things in your life and its goals.

2. Embrace optimism in your life:

Often when people get hurt they explain things to themselves in a pessimistic way. AVOID that. Remember very often pessimistic thinking approach leads to self-isolation, depression and withdrawal. What is required rather - being optimistic, try to adopt a way of thinking like, “the person talked to me roughly, did I wrongly intervene in his/her personal space? , I should take care of this next time”, or “something might not be right at that person’s end and his/her rough behaviour is an outcome of that situation”. Such kind of thinking style will always help you to become a better observer of life and will improve your interpersonal skill and the way you handle yourself.


3. Friends and relatives VS Telephones Mobiles and computers

Sitting in front of TV, Mobile and laptop screen for hours reduces brain stimulation. Remember humans are designed to do whole body movement, to move our muscles that stimulate our cerebellum, which in turn stimulates our cortex. So tell yourself if you want to be happy in life, then choose family outings, relative visits, friend gatherings, exercises over TV, mobile and PC.
