Hi!

I am Dr Jimmy Mody practicing in Bombay for the last 17 or more years as a psychotherapist. My training is in psychoanalysis, clinical hypnotherapy, transpersonal regression therapy, CBT and a few other.

Today we are going to talk about demystifying depression, it is a serious condition it's not just in mood swing, it's not a temporary thing, it's not just feeling low down in the dumps so when you start feeling depressed and starts affecting your life in many-many ways your eating, your sleeping, your relationship, even your work then it's about time that you start something about it. It affects about more than 10 to 15% of the entire population and of that only as much as one third of these people actually come for help and why could that be and of the one third that come for help as many as 80 to 90% get help and able to get some relief, within 2 month itself. So this is a lot about depression we need to know.

The causes of depression are not entirely known, but are vary then many typically they could be genetic, they could be biological, they could be a brain chemical, brain function problem, it could be due to a medical illness, it could be psychological or environmental and there are many-many other causes as well. For one thing it is not, it is not due to a personal weakness or personal flaw in your character, we assured of that. Now we need to look at what are the kinds of treatments that you need to go for and I would say that there are three prong approach towards helping you with your depression. You must go for all three of them and not miss anyone of them out. First is you need to consult a psychiatrist, psychiatrist who is a person, who is medically qualified and licenced to give you the medicines necessary to deal with the biological brain function aspects or causes of your depression or the medical illness causes of your depression. Then you need to go to a psychotherapist, he is not licensed to give medicine, so don't talk to him about your medications he may not know much about them. But he is trained in a number of different therapies such as I am, many of which a very good for working on your depression, particularly CBT. CBT has been found to be the best therapy for depression, it's evidence-based and it is empirical proven to have a high success rate higher than the any other therapies. The other thing that you need to do is self help, this is the third prong attack on your depression, is through self help. This cannot be under mind or under stated and self help you have to understand comes first with exercise, yes exercise, your brain has certain chemical called Endorphins and other hormones which get activated when you do a lot of aerobic kind of exercise. So even if you do half an hour walking or vigorous walking or running a day that would be good, that would be important and this is proven and in fact I can explain it to right now, in Prehistoric days when prehistory men and women existed there were no TV’s, no convenience of cars, mobile phones, computers we have to go out into the field and work as farmers or hunter, gatherers. We were much more exposed to exercise then we are today and so it's not surprising that in those days the problem of depression was hardly ever heard or nobody was committing suicide.

So please, I urge you don't take it easy too simple and easy go out and commit yourself half an hour of exercise a day, ok. The next thing that you need to work on is yourself awareness- watching yourself, becoming aware of yourself, witnessing yourself, your thoughts and specially you find it easiest to witness watch and observe those thoughts that constantly, obsessively, persistently repeat. Take some of those thoughts that particularly repeat because they occupy a lot of your minds space don't allow you to think anything else or do anything else, take some others thoughts and just write down a few those thoughts. Look at what you written down, Its either a very general statement which most probably is, sometimes it might be specific. So general statement could be I am a failure, I am not good enough, nobody loves me, from these general statements we need to get little bit more specific.

Why do you feel this way? I am a failure because every time I work really study really hard for exams for school and college I just about manage to escape through, other friends who didn't study as hard as I did, got top marks, I am a failure or you might say I am a failure because I tried one starter Idea and didn't succeeded or I am a failure because every relationship I have been in, my girlfriend my boyfriend whatever has walked out on me, well we need to get more specific and you also need to challenge all of these assumptions that you just made about yourself. Human beings love the act and practice of self evaluation but nobody in school or college ever teaches us how to self evaluate. You must self evaluate not optimistically, you must self evaluate not pessimistically, you must self evaluate realistically. It means take each of these thoughts specially the repeated ones and challenge them challenge the ability, ask them to prove themselves, where is the evidence, is there more to the story or view then not doing well in your college exams, start looking at a larger picture of yourself, start evaluating yourself more realistic leave based on evidence and last but not the least become aware of your cynical thoughts. Nothing is good, nothing is worthwhile, its not good getting up and making an effort to do something for myself, people are like this. People and the government are all corrupt, all industrialist are corrupt, all police man are corrupt, we have a very cynical ideas, all men have only one thing on their mind very cynical idea. Cynicism seeks to destroy any good in you, so we don't want cynicism either. So now these fronts you need to become aware watch and challenge them, challenge them with possible alternative thoughts not positive thoughts, not positive thinking but possible alternative thoughts. What could be the other ways of thinking about yourself, what could be the other ways of evaluating yourself, let's get realistic, let's look for the truth, let’s not jump to assumption and conclusions.

Check Out The Signs You Might Be Suffering From Anxiety Disorder

Check Out The Signs You Might Be Suffering From Anxiety Disorder

All individuals get nervous or anxious at some point of time or the other due to a plethora of reasons. But for some individuals, anxiety becomes so frequent and forceful, that it overpower their lives. Most of the normal anxiety are short lived and the feelings may last for few hours. However, an anxiety problem becomes an anxiety disorder when anxious feelings are very intense and last for weeks or months. Anxiety disorder exists in different forms like panic attacks, social anxiety and phobia.

The most common form of anxiety is Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) during which an individual worries too much about everyday things and situations, both large and small. The person in this condition has persistent anxious thoughts on most days of the week, for six months. Moreover, the anxiety is so overpowering that it interferes with daily life and is coupled by noticeable symptoms like fatigue. The anxiety level goes to such an extent that causes a lot of dysfunction and suffering. If a person suffers from sleep problems and finds himself regularly awake and agitated or worried, then it is a tell-tale sign of generalized anxiety disorder. This is followed by a situation when one wakes up overstimulated with mind racing and one is unable to calm down.

When the anxiety is tied to a specific situation and the fear is overwhelming and out of proportion to the actual risks then the condition is phobia. This can be due to anything ranging from crowd, animals to flying in an aeroplane or using an escalator. Muscle tension like clenching of jaw or fists or flexing of muscles though out the body always accompanies anxiety disorders. Regular exercise can help keep muscle tension under control, but the tension may get triggered up if an injury or other unforeseen event disrupts a person's workout habits. Panic disorder is repeated, unexpected panic attacks where one encounters panic in a situation where most people wouldn’t be afraid. Anxiety also leads to chronic digestive problems like cramping and bloating of stomach.

Social phobia or social anxiety disorder occurs when one develops an intense fear of being judged or embarrassed in public. People with social anxiety disorder have a tendency to worry for weeks leading to an event or situation. When and if they manage it, they tend to be deeply uncomfortable and are always judgemental about it. In case of social anxiety disorder, the anxiety is triggered by everyday situations like one-on-one conversation at a get-together, or eating and drinking in front of small group. The person feels that everybody is watching him and experiences profuse sweating, trembling, nausea and person becomes tongue-tied. These disruptions make it hard for the person to meet new people and maintain relationships.

Panic disorder causes terrifying panic attacks when the person experiences a sudden gripping feeling of fear and helplessness which lasts for several minutes. It is generally accompanied with scary symptoms like breathing problems, a pounding heart, numb hands and sweating.

Excessive fear of being separated from home or a loved one is separation anxiety disorder. Post -traumatic stress disorder is an anxiety disorder in which the patient relives a disturbing or traumatic event like a violent encounter, the sudden death of a loved one.

An anxiety disorder affects the thinking, feelings as well as behaviour of a normal person. It’s important to seek professional help if one see any of the warning signs of anxiety disorders in an individual.

The Pros And Cons Of Online Dating!

The Pros And Cons Of Online Dating!

Technology affects every aspect of our lives including how we date. Today, the first interaction a couple has isn’t over a cup of coffee, but through the internet. While some people swear by online dating others are still vary of it. Like a coin, online dating has two sides; pros and cons. Here are some of the advantages and disadvantages of online dating.

Pros

  1. Easier way of meeting people: If you’re new to the city, online dating can be a great way of introducing yourself to new people. Even if you don’t find a relationship, you might end up with a number of new friends. Online dating can help you meet new people even if you’ve lived in the same city all your life. It broadens your search and introduces you to people outside of your friend circle. You might even meet someone who can help you network better professionally.
  2. Convenient: Careers can be very demanding and leave a person almost no time to socialise. Online dating helps people who have no time to socialise in person, meet people virtually. Today, most online dating websites and apps have filters through which you screen people. hence unlike when a friend sets you up on a blind date, you already know something about the other person and have something in common with them. Online dating also makes optimal use of time; taking a ten-minute break between work - you can easily scan through dating profiles and find someone you’d like to meet.

Cons

  1. Dishonest profiles: Unfortunately, the internet makes it easy to lie and pretend to be someone you are not. While small white lies like pretending to like outdoor activities when you don’t really care for them are okay, some people may put up profiles that are nothing like their actual personalities. This can make online dating slightly unsafe and hence whenever you meet someone from our online dating world, it is best to do so in a place where there will be other people as well.
  2. Different understanding of relationships: Not everyone who makes a dating profile is interested in a long-term relationship. For some people, this may just be a way of meeting people to have a fling with or to simply make new friends. Online dating makes it difficult to understand a person’s true personality and hence you may not realize that you and the other person have a different opinion about relationships until quite late.

Depression: Tips To Deal With Your Loved Ones!

Depression: Tips To Deal With Your Loved Ones!

Depression is such an ailment that may be intensely distressing and may lead to severe damage to the afflicted person and their close ones, if left without proper care and treatment. So if you are in charge of caring for patients affected with chronic depression, then it may seem challenging as well as equally rewarding. You will feel challenged when you're trying to figure out a possible solution to help the patient. Each patient is a distinct individual with varying needs contrary to the patients affected with diabetes or cardiac disorders where the treatments are properly schemed and structured.

Caring for yourself is also important-

When you are trying to deal with patients affected with depression, you will first have to properly recognize depression and anxiety. When someone you love is affected with depression, you will try your level best to help that person come out of the situation. However, note that it is also important to take care of your own mental as well as physical health. Because when you are trying to help a person come out of depression, it is likely that you too would face similar psychological distress. A recent study reported that caregivers of depressed people with bipolar disorder and severe depressive problems were more susceptible to psychological troubles than care providers of other healthcare needs like diabetes or cancer among general population. So it is really imperative to look after yourself as well.

Sticking to a well-regulated treatment plan-

Though social support is significant, it alone cannot help in suppressing depression. If you know a person encountering pangs of depression, advise him or her to seek professional assistance. Depression is such a clinical condition that requires to be dealt with medication, therapy or a balanced combination of both. You will have to make them understand that you care about them, but you alone cannot succeed in healing that person without proper medical guidance. Encourage such people to closely follow a physician’s advice and take proper medicines as recommended by the healthcare provider.

Insisting on following healthy habits-

You will have to try to encourage the patients in regulating their energies into doing something positive for both mind and body. This can be aptly done through exercise, which helps in lowering the risk of anxiety as well as depression with regular practice. This, along with the intake of a healthy balanced diet would also help them to recover faster.

While doing your bit to aid a person come out of depression, you should also take him or her to a responsive psychologist who can recommend faster methods of getting rid of depression permanently.
