I am 28 years old I have little stress (my father expired) my b. P. Is 95/150 what precaution should I take

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, CE (New York)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Stress is a part and parcel of life now a days. Some amount of stress is actually beneficial as it improves efficiency. However one should not get too stressed out, which results in decreased efficiency in work and also leads to deterioration of personal relations. Taking regular breaks, sharing problems with friends and relatives and a rule of" never bringing work tensions at home" are some easy ways of dealing with stress. Exercising regularly, eating healthy and losing weight are few other ways which can help keep blood pressure in check as well as keeping stress levels down.

You are right about needing counseling and help. The depression may be related to the diabetes too, and the other things you mention may be an offshoot of this. I have known some people who have been afflicted with juvenile diabetes and have initially responded with despair but have later picked up the cudgel and done better than the normal population. If your depression is induced by the diabetes, my recommendation is for you to accept that and go beyond that and become someone of note, because of that! Any way, if the counselor feels that you need medication, then you will need to work in conjunction with that too. In the meantime do as much as is permissible of the following: You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. This may overlap with the diabetic low too. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, 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, eat more of proteins, nuts, fruits, and vegetables, 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 things, 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. The 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. Self confidence, self esteem, and the inferiority complex can all become things of the past, if you fight a pitched battle with this depression and diabetes.

One of my friend is drinking alcohol daily, his addicted to alcohol, smoking also his not able to stop it, kindly suggest me how it's stop it permanently.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There are some medicines that help with smoking cessation. But with the drinking the medication involves your cousin’s full knowledge and cooperation. He may consult a psychiatrist regarding this. Now making him stop, is a very difficult and near impossible task. Even if it appears that you have succeeded, I can guarantee it will end up a failure: his willingness is paramount to his recovery, which you say is fortunately there. The combination of alcohol and smoking is deadly for his health. I am so glad that he is seeking to get rid of these habits and that will play a major role in his recovery. He must stop them both, abruptly and immediately. If he thinks that he will find it very difficult, then admit him to a hospital and let him go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of these habits. If this is also not enough, then admit him into a de-addiction center and let him stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the smoking and drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as his primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after whichever treatment approach he chooses, he must attend AA meetings, and his family must also attend some Al-anon meetings to help them deal with their own issues regarding his alcoholism and to support him too in the recovery process. This fabulous decision will benefit him firstly, and his entire family. He is taking action that will have major bearing to many lives.

Please gracefully accept the fact that you are no longer a contender for the post of his wife. You tried your best to convince him and he did not budge. That is not your or his fault. Circumstances are to blame and there is no use blaming circumstances. Concentrate on your education and career. Take care.

What is the cause of headache? What should I do improve our brain power? Can I get medicine to improve my brain?

What is the cause of headache? What should I do improve our brain power? Can I get medicine to improve my brain?
From fever to migrain and from sinus to meningitis and then to head injury there are more than 100 different causes. Doctor can help in short listing and then pinpointing the actual cause by going into complaints, clinical examination and may be different investigations (if found necessary). I don't think there any scientific medicinal remedies from improvement of a normal brain.

I am gone to depression from 1 year. About think my past situations. How can I get got of it? Any solution.
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.

Dear lybrate user. This phenomenon is pretty common and there is nothing to worry. Not only you, everyone in your household are so because no one likes things going wrong. But if the depressive mood is more than normal you need counseling and life style changes. Your fear could be linked to your depressive mood and both could be due to anxiety disorder. Psychotherapy should help you. Take care.

I am 20 year old I also a engineering student I have not concrete in my study from 3 month before help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Retaining information to be recalled at will is the role of memory. For which you need to do the following: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. Good social contacts are good for memory too: so make and keep good friends. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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.

Dear, 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. For further assistance you can concern me privately.

Dear lybrate user, I appreciate your efforts to get rid of marijuana. I guess you are able to do it for last 1 month because of your strong will power. Please continue that. At the same time, understand that your body has got used to this substance. Even if you have stopped taking it now, there are some residues in your body, which you need to flush out. This is know as" detoxification" of your body. You will need to take some medicines to detoxify your body. For last 7 years your body has got used to marijuana. So when you suddenly, stop taking it, the body is going to react. You might experience trembling, lack of sleep and intense craving etc. It will be difficult for you to have mind control on these bodily changes or demands. These are known as" withdrawal symptoms" you need to take some medicines to keep your withdrawal symptoms in control. Hence, please consult a doctor at the earliest. The doctor will prescribe these medicines. Once your detoxification is over and you are on medicines to take care of your withdrawal symptoms, then you please start your counselling sessions. There has to be a reason why you started experimenting with marijuana. It appears that your present life is in a mess. To provide you with emotional support and to help you with improving your relationships and move ahead in life, counsellor will be of great help. Please consult a counsellor after consulting a doctor. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, you have raised a wise question and it is totally understandable. Now first thing is motivation work backwards in depression- the more you do, the more you like doing. When you kick that inertia and get out of your shell in a way which breaks you free from the negative thoughts and pattern you have been caught in, it gets rewarding and pleasurable. You can start with building your network with friends you have lost touch with over phone plan a meeting, go out hang out with them. Then slowly when you regain little confidence and control over social life you can generalize it by making new friends. You do not have to tell anyone you are patient foremost thing is you are a person and you are capable of anything. What you think becomes the reality. So do not get bothered much there are ample ways to socialize. Join gym, some art classes, any sports etc. There you will find outlet for your feelings and emotions. Just do not think much and go with flow. All the very best.
