Hi I dont know whether it is depression, my brother want me to quit his house, I have poor salary, the rent I have to pay is half of my salary, I tried to commit suicide, but I couldn' t. I am 41 not married, what to do

Psychologist,
You need to urgently meet a psychiatrist and counsellor. Remember that you are a valuable person with lots of potential for growth. Your life is precious and killing yourself will put an end to all the good things about you which will be such a waste of talent. In depression, you may not have thought through all the possible options, but believe me there are options which your counsellor will help you to recognise and your life will start improving and you will feel better again. Give yourself another chance and go to a counsellor and seek professional help. Suicide never solved any problems for anyone up till now, how will it solve yours? And what about the people who depend on you, care and worry for you. What will happen to them after you are gone?

Excessive sweating may cause for anxiousness. You are suffering from anxiety disorder. You are belong to a very good traditional family. It is better to consult psychiatrist for medicine along with medicine. You need psychological counselling and behaviour therapy. You need both psychiatrist and psychologist. Better to consult initially psychologist. He suggest some of the relaxation methods in that your problems solved it is ok. If not then consult psychiatrist for medical help. It is better to share your internal frustrated thoughts to other friends and family members. Do not sit alone. Do not think too much about past incidents and present status. Feel always comfortable. Better to practice yoga and meditation. Be happy all the time. Be feel fresh all the time. Better to control yourself and come out of this problem. If not possible yourself. Better to take the help of professionals. Be sociable and be happy all the time. Ok best of luck.

Tricyclic antidepressants can surely have interaction with butter and related food you mentioned. 2 options for, either get the antidepressant changed. Newer ones have come without these side effects, or avoid the foods which cause the side effects. Discuss with your psychiatrist. All the best.

How to know if you have an anxiety disorder?

DPM
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How to know if you have an anxiety disorder?

Anxiety is a very normal emotion, which gives rise to feelings of nervousness every now and then. An anxiety disorder is a serious medical condition in which people experience a high degree of distress and mental trauma, which causes difficulties in leading a normal life. People suffering from this medical condition experience high levels of anxiety and nervousness almost all the time. Here are the symptoms that indicate you're suffering from anxiety disorder.

1. Excessive worry - This condition persists if you worry about the day to day activities a bit too much on a regular basis. It is identified when you start taking too much stress about very petty things, which tends to affect you in an adverse manner. A noticeable sign of excessive worry can be too much fatigue.

2. Sleep problems - Problems falling asleep at the right time and problems in maintaining a sound sleep are two signs that indicate you have an anxiety disorder.

3. Irrational fears - This symptom is not generalized; instead, it is specific and subjective in relation to a particular thing or situation. The fears that are experienced under this category are sudden and unexpected in nature and there is no fixed rationale behind these fears.

4. Muscle tension - Muscle discomfort and pain is one of the leading physiological causes of an anxiety disorder. The pain felt is chronic and pervasive, and is very common among people facing situations of anxiety. If you are exposed to constant periods of anxiety, you will experience fatigue, muscle pains and unwillingness to work.

5. Chronic indigestion - Problems related to the digestive system are also a sign of anxiety disorder. In this case, you may face constant digestive problems accompanied by a common disorder called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). IBS refers to an anxiety situation in the digestive tract, which is characterized by stomach aches, cramping, bloating, gas, constipation, and/or diarrhea.

Apart from the above-mentioned symptoms, other symptoms of an anxiety disorder include stage fright, self- consciousness, panic attacks, memory flashbacks, perfectionism, compulsive behaviors, self- doubt, and such others.

Hi I Am 24 year guy I have problem with my stress on my mind. What should I do?
Any suggestions?
Dear, Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Is there any possibility to change a adamant chronic drunkard to quit him from drinking and smoking? He doesn't wants to work also in his life depending on his mother for drinking and food. Can he change by quiting drinking and go to a work?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course, he can but it is ideal if the person wants to quit himself. If he is an unwilling alcoholic, then it is possible to get the rehabilitation center to come and pick him up when he is drunk but then it will require the signed permission of his mother. He should stay in the center for at least 6 months and continue outpatient treatment and as well as attend aa meetings along with his family after the discharge. If he has a relapse, don't get discouraged but do the same thing again and again until you succeed with him. If you don't he will only be stopped by death i. E. 20% of alcoholics are on skid row: death is the only thing that can stop them. Keep trying until you succeed.

Mr. Lybrate-user smoking is not good for health first you stop smoking. Now a days even young fellows are getting heart attacks due to smoking and as you are getting frequent chest pain episodes better you go for cardiac check up. Ecg. 2d echo. Fasting lipid profile and chest x ray.

Sir I am facing serious stress due to over masturbation. I am suffering from depression. I have already consulted a neurologist but due to exam I hv withdrawal the medication rexipra 10 mg and prothiaden 25 mg. Can I continue this medication?

Dear lybrate-user, masturbation is a normal physiological sign of you growing up. When your testosterone level is high when you mature to manhood, you feel the urge to masturbate. Though biologically mature at 16-18 years sociologically or economically you are mature to get married. So accept that masturbation proves that you are a man and it is a normal outlet before marriage. But you are suffering from depression which needs antidepressant treatment. Both rexipra and prothiaden are good antidepressant tablets. You can take them during examination also. It will give you mor confidence to give your best. Restart both tablets and go back to a psychiatrist - not neurologist. Depending on the improvement, he may increase the dose.

Sir I want to ask that I feel something like memory loss problem, my HB level is 10g, is this is due to HB deficiency.

M.Sc - Applied Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hb deficiency can make you tired and lethargic due to poor supply of oxygen to the cells and this does impact your output and can lead to difficulties in concentration. Do eat iron rich, well balanced diet and iron supplements prescribed by your doctor. Once the hb comes to it's normal levels resulting in good supply of oxygen to the organs, you will feel more energetic and will be able to focus well. You have not mentioned your age. Some amount of decline happens in memory capacity with age, if you are concerned then you can consult a neurologist.

Hi, I am facing a depression issue badly. I have lost my weight and hopeless towards life. What should I do ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hi, I am facing a depression issue badly. I have lost my weight and hopeless towards life. What should I do ?
Please start counseling immediately and avail of the help you need to handle the daily challenges and stresses of a person in depression in order to cope with them effectively. Being in depression your sleep patterns will often get terribly disturbed. In fact I will not be surprised to know that your natural biorhythms will also be skewed up and with that weight loss may also emanate. The natural wake up cycle for the human is between 4 and 6 am. Many people who are depressed do not adhere to this regimen and the whole day can then become so out of sync that you will suffer jetlag-like stress and will not ever know about it. Do get back to the natural rhythm soon. You can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night?s sleep by going to bed early, 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, if they are not there for you. 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.

4 Stubborn Intelligence Myths That Just Won't Die. Know The Facts

4 Stubborn Intelligence Myths That Just Won't Die. Know The Facts
'Thought processing' or 'Mentality' is the mental processing of information verbally or visually. It can take many forms such as reasoning, problem-solving, day-dreaming, desiring, fantasizing and so on. There are many false notions about intelligence and our brains that are widely believed to be the truth. Here I am listing a few of those most common myths and what the actual facts are.

Myth #1: People tend to believe that thinking is conditioned by the extent of one's education. Higher education equals better thinking.
Fact: Education does not allow one to think independently. Formal education focuses on analytical and logical thinking abilities. Undoubtedly, logic & analysis help you succeed in life but divergent thinking is what defines one as a creative and original thinker.

Myth #2: People who have never received any sort of education can never be good thinkers.
Fact: People who receive little or no education do not have many references or lessons learnt in school to fall back upon. Their experiences are first-hand. It usually enables them to come up with original solutions to problems.

Myth #3: People with lower IQ (Intelligence Quotient) possess lesser thinking ability and those with higher IQ are better thinkers.
Fact: A higher IQ doesn't always necessarily equals greater thinking ability. Similarly, a lower IQ doesn't always equals lower thinking ability. There are a lot of other factors which play role here.

Myth #4: You are born with abilities to think, take decisions and solve problems. It cannot be acquired.
Fact: Thinking is a skill. And skills can be developed. Thus, thinking can be reinforced by training and practice. Consequently, problem solving, decision-making and creative thinking skills can evolve and improve.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. If thinking about past gives you peace of mind, happiness and self confidence there is nothing wrong in thinking. But make sure you are able to do your present duty or business also. Don't unnecessarily worry. Feel free to contact me. Take care.
