How to get relief from depression. He is thinking a lot. Can not control his thinking.

How to get relief from depression. He is thinking a lot. Can not control his thinking.
You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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 scorching 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. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. 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 every day and learn to be contented 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.

Ideally blood donor age should be 18 to 45 years. And weight should be minimum 45 kg. In this criteria there is no harm to donate blood.

My dear lybrate-user it is very common to be depressed after losing a dear relation. It is called acute grief reaction and we all have passed or experienced it in our family. If the departed relation is young the grief is more. Normally we all become normal after 4- 6 weeks. Please try to remain in company of family members and keep yourself busy in your job or business go to park in morning you will find lots of children playing there or people of your age ready to greet and meet you but do not keep on takng about your loss which is definately irrepairable but life has to go on and can not remain static. Do dome yoga or meditation to break the vicious circle of your thoughts. I am not asking you to forget it but have love and respect for departed relation and at the same time putting your life to normal healthy routime. Do not take any medicine and wishing you healthy life.

Hi Doc, I have addition of chewing tobacco (rajnigandha-tulsi) from last 5 years. Now I want to leave this but not able to left it by my self. I tried so many time but not succeed. I also tried nicotex to leave this habit but not succeed. So can you please suggest any medicine by help of which I can leave this habit in less time. Thanks in advance.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

Cholesterol is borderline high. Otherwise his BP appears to be on upper limit and anxious. Cut down cholesterol and Saturated fat. Let him try meditation and relaxation and investigate thoroughlly if he has essential Hypertension and hen need to control diet and exercise and organize a stress managed lifestyle. Yoga and meditation are advisable along with pranayama, If there is dyslipaedemia needs to take medication/ alternative medication available. Check out all investigations /or check HBA!C too and get back to me. There is no medication at this stage. He can follow natural methods and lets see and also reduce weight and take fruit diet/ alongwith.

Depression is treatable and manageable. She will need active support of her family and friends to keep her hopes high of leading a satisfying and happier life than before. Cognitive behaviour therapy in counselling is a very important part of recovery from depression. Please motivate her to do exercise based on her age and ability. Encourage her to meet people and maintain social relationships. She should also engage in some meaningful and satisfying hobbies.

If a person leaves alcohol without any solid reason permanently after being habitual of daily consuming for last 30 years, what are its results?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Just fantastic. It does not matter if there are any reasons, although I know there will be some reason even if that person does not admit it. Reason or no reason, the fact is that he has quit a habit that can be very damaging and since it is 'permanent', it is an excellent decision. Stopping at any time is always welcome, and he is looking at regaining some of the damages incurred and will definitely lengthen his life. I would also​ request him to do some script work to give his decision a final and good post-mortem.

I had depression from Aug 2013 and six month before I stopped antidepressants. Till today I don't have any difficulties. But whenever I talk to people I get worried automatically. I seat in people very less and it is very difficult to wake up in morning. I always have tension to meet depression in future. I gain 25 kg weight in 2 years because of treatment.

After antidepressants there is need to take psychotherapy. Medicine will work some time. But the psychological feelings cannot stop. You are feeling insecure feelling. Now you need life style management. If it is possible change yourself. Be think in a positive manner. Be friendly with others. Be share your all feelings with your friends. Be happy all the time. If it is not possible to yourself then take the help of psychologist. Ok all the best. Best wishes.

Hi lybrate-user, your elder brother is suffering from alcohol dependance syndrome. Which is a medical disorder. He is unable to quit at his own, rather not motivated to quit. There are proper treatment of alcohol deaddiction. For this you probaby have to admit him under a psychiatrist trained in deaddiction. There he wll need detoxification treatment; intense psychotherapy e. G. Motivation therapy, relapse prevention therapy, assertive therapy etc. He will also need antcraving therapy. A through gastrointestinal checkup is also required by a gastroenterologist. Hope with proper guidance n family support your brother can be helped.

How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely drink, and does our tolerance change with aging?

Dear lybrate-user. Alcohol is poison. In the process of safeguarding your body's vital organs, your liver is slowly damaged if you consume alcohol. There is no safe limit of alcohol you can drink. Quit alcohol. Take care.

Hi, its natural to feel the confusion, see if you get all your tests done ecg etc related to heart and it has come out normal it is due to anxiety. Now for anxiety the course of medicine is 1-2 years where in if you leave the medicine in between symptoms will reoccur with greater intensity and duration of medicines will also increase. Along with medication there are scientific exercises to tame anxiety which you should do regularly like jacobs progressive muscle relaxation etc and many other natural lifestyle changes can help you cope up better.

Practice everyday to reduce your anxiety as anxiety can lead to stammering and hence you need to overcome it. Practice by standing in front of a mirror then with your friend and later with persons whom you are not familar.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.
