The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. As your depression is severe, due to suicidal idea. All the best.

I am having Good amount of anxiety or Ocd. Doctor,I wamt to ask that if I practise pranayama or anulom vinolom on a regular basis can it bring my ocd to a nominal level or should I go to a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Pranayama, Anulom vinolom, meditation, exercise are all beneficial to good physical and mental health. However, they are NOT treatments by themselves. At best they can be considered as adjuvants, they help to improve the patient's health and thus their condition. If you are indeed suffering from OCD, it is vital that you seek professional help by consulting a psychiatrist. With the right medication and counseling you will see relief in your symptoms.

Dear lybrate user lybrate-user due to heavy pressure and changing environment every one is facing so much tension and stress so its common these days. Make yourself busy so that your brain should be in motion and for bad thoughts listen so loud music. Try some deep breathing exercise. Lie down before 10 or 10: 30 and read some book and if your sleeping cycle will be regular then your stress level will also decrease. Consult any psychologist it will help.

Depression - It Can Cause You to Feel 100 Years Old

Masters in Clinical Psychology

Depression - It Can Cause You to Feel 100 Years Old

Depression is a very unfortunate state to be in, in every sense of the word. It is a sickness of the mind and can only be felt by the person experiencing it. As a matter of fact, it is even worse when depression does not occur on its own, but is rather accompanied by another condition such as fatigue.

There are many cases where depression occurs along with chronic fatigue syndrome. The irony is that when a person is depressed, he or she is unlikely to be willing to get out of bed and when this is compounded by chronic fatigue syndrome, even if the depression alleviates, it would not make much of a difference as it would be a case of ‘mind willing, flesh weak’!

Many of the people who are diagnosed with depression have extreme patterns when it comes to sleep. Either he or she would sleep for extended periods of time and feel lethargic to do anything else. Or, the other situation is generally when he or she is more or less an insomniac and does not get sleep even if he or she would really like to grab a bit of shut-eye!

What are the Symptoms?
When a person is going through depression, it can be said to be of the highest importance to be able to judge the symptoms of the condition soon, so that the person can go and seek treatment. The symptoms, which are being talked about include extreme eating habits, that is, either eating way too much or not enough at all, along with a continuous sense of anxiety which, depending on how severe the case of depression is, can cause a person to have his or her mind clouded by the anxiety which over sweeps all other thoughts. In addition to these symptoms, there are other signs which appear with the onset and continuance of depression. These include disinterest in hobbies, which once appeared enjoyable to take part in.

Chronic fatigue syndrome kills off any urge to partake in any activity, which is voluntary in nature. With the combination of these two conditions, it can be quite possible, rather unfortunately, for a person to find himself or herself to be stuck in a vicious cycle. Sleep disorders, such as sleep apnea can really kill a person’s zing and as a result of the same, make it harder for him or her to get out of depression and more likely to fall into depression if he or she has not yet. Curing depression includes changes schedules, engaging in yoga and other similar activities. Dietary changes may also be warranted. However, the recovery should take effect soon! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Becoming less social is the main problem. You must realize that your present household situation is not going to change. Mother with an illness, brother with a mental illness these areas are to be constant. Two other areas which you can change is your marriage and your stress level. Once you accept the fact that the present scenario will change when you marry, your stress level will reduce. But this option could take time. Therefore, the alternative is to engage yourself in social circumstances, games, hobbies etc so that the" thinking" time is reduced to minimum. Take care.

This is very common during menses and called as premenstrual syndrome or pms. This occurs because of hormonal changes and mostly temporary. If this is persistent over the period of menses then it can be cured with 3 months course of medicines.

You seem to be having a condition called gynecomastia for which the only solution is male breast reduction surgery to be performed by a plastic surgeon. Medicines, diet and exercises do not work.

Mental stress will be mostly the reason for disturbances. Earlier your life style was good, but now, your profile changed the pattren. Try to maintain 6-7 hrs sleep anyway in n8. If still you feel dull, take a nap after lunch, if possible try to follow pranyama, yoga, any breathing exercises (will b taught in art of living, isha foundation etc) will relieve your mind from stress&keep quite. But do not take any allopathic medications. For that purpose.

I am 20 years old I am smoking cigars vigourisly I want the remedy to stop the smoking how can I do it.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs 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

I am not able to concentrate on my studies because of mobile internet and laptop what should I do?

M.Phil - Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
At present times we all are using internet for our work. Try to use the internet for the study purpose. You try to select what you want to watch in internet. Make your time table. You search for study materials from the internet along with your academic text book. You will find a very interesting way of learning and you knowledge will increase. Try avoiding going much towards entertaining parts of internet, even though it is very attractive part. You are an matured individual. You should have control on your life. It may appear very difficult in the beginning but slowly you will realize the change. So, just try to use the internet in different ways and you will see things will fall in line.

Acomprol should never be taken with alcohol and must be prescribed by a doctor. You are playing dangerously by taking this medication without doctor's prescription and monitoring. Chewing tobacco is really harmful especially because it is known to cause oral cancer and oral submucous fibrosis (SMF). Since it is an oral habit there are many substitutes that can be used to replace the oral stimulation. Of course, since it is a stimulant you cannot get the same effect and that is worth the loss to give up this very addictive habit. A dense fibrous tissue is deposited in the submucosal layer of the soft palate and cheek, causing disabling symptoms like trismus. It contains betel nuts, tobacco, lime, catechu and permitted spices and flavors. The first four substances damage the sensitive mucosa, causing constant irritation and micro trauma to the mucosa. Chemicals present act as a toxin. The phenol in the betel nut, with its caustic burning effect, destroys the mucosa, causing oral ulcers. The betel nut also contains tannins, which act as astringents, precipitating protein and damaging the mucosa. Altogether, this substance is known to be physiologically addictive. You can use replacements like nicotine chewing gum (if you want the stimulant effect, especially in the beginning) or ordinary chewing gum, hard candy and any other orally satiating substance, especially when the urge is very strong. You would have got conditioned to the habit to different times of the day and different situations. You must particularly avoid those occasions and occupy yourself with something else attractive. You should get regular exercise, eat healthily, and get a good night’s rest every day. Visit a dentist and clean up your teeth and gums to wipe out all the reminders and damages of the habit. You may also get a thorough oral check up and treatment for any damages incurred. If he is unable to give it up on his own, he needs to be admitted into a rehabilitation center nearby until he is completely out of it. They will have him deal with all other issues also and so his anger outbursts will also get attention. The anger may or may not have anything to do with the addiction but still it is better he deals with it in the course of his therapy.

Dear user. Having negative thoughts about future or simply having negative thoughts are due to lack of understanding life and due to wrong attitude. I suggest online attitude therapy. Take care.
