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.

Dear lybrate-user you need to consult any professional as soon as possible, medicines along with counselling can help. Life is very precious we get only 1 life so enjoy as much as you can there are many colours in life ,only the difference lies in our approach just think about patient who is suffering from cancer at last stage that patient will desperately want to live as much as he/she can ,i know by only saying its really difficult to manage ,but you have to divert your mind, try to make yourself busy as much as you can so that no other type of thoughts come. And if still thought comes then write it on paper and also write that you will think on this topic at some other time mention the time and say to yourself that at now I am suppose to do some other work ,you can take the help of counsellor regarding this. If you need my help you can contact me. Make some new friends, try to chat on fb ,but anyhow you have to make yourself busy, increase social activities, you can do anulom vilom yoga and some deep breathing exercise, join any hobby class, listen loud music as it will interfere with your thought, you can make some plan with friends, make any good friend so that by sharing you will feel good. Take care.

I am 26 year old and mother of 3. I am still breastfeeding my 1 year 8 months old baby and want to stop now. My breast became saggy, soft and sometimes wrinkled.

U need surgical correction for loose breast. To increase your breast size: no medicine can increase breast size. No peels or massage can ever alter size. Breast implant is most effective and common procedure to increase size of breast. In this procedure silicon implant of desisted size is pushed under breast tissue. Procedure is done under anesthesia so there is no question of pain. Patient can go home in 3 to 4 hrs. You just need to wear supporting bra for some time and can return to work next day. Externally the look and feel of breast is just like natural young breast. Within few hrs you will regain your confidence and have attractive chest figure. In future pregnancy there is no problem in breast feeding. There is no risk of any major illness or disease associated with this procedure. Implants available in different size.

My wife (age 28) is having anxiety from last 2-3 days. Doctor has given clonazepam 0.5 for two times a day. So she is having this headache, Can I give her fenak plus (diclofenac+paracetamol) for headache? She also had this fit in 2007 (only once) and took medicine for 3 yrs. She was also feeling same anxiety back then. Is this somehow related?

Make your failure your weapon as there is no space for failures in life-----------be successful in life so that one day she repents and sitting aside brooding and giving it the name of depression will lead you nowhere as only coward people talks of negativity in life and depression is self cfreated negative approach towards life---------------------

Smokers are everyone not effected to cancer. It depends person to person. Because of smoking cancer comes that is healthy advice. It not means everyone affected. So do not worry about this. Better to quit smoking. You have pathophobia means fear of diseases. When you need smoking at that time take chicklets or any other chocolates or eat anything. Refresh your mind with tea, coffee or juice or any other small item of foods. Be sociable and be friendly with others. Do not think about cancer. If you think you are in very trouble. Quit smoking. Feel always I have no bad habits. I am very healthy person. Feel and think in a positive manner. It will be always best for your health. Ok best of luck.

Dear Lybrate User, *Eating goitrogenic foods such as rapeseed, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, maize, lima beans, soya and pearl millet should be limited. These foods contain natural goitrogens, which are chemicals that cause the enlargement of the thyroid gland by interfering with thyroid hormone synthesis. Cooking is known to make the goitrogens elements less effective, but it would be wise not eat these foods raw. *Smoking depresses TH levels and produces chronic underlying hypothyroidism. Research shows that nicotine increases the synthesis of T3 from T4 in the brain, while alcohol and opiates block the breakdown of T3 in the brain. *Foods that contain iodine, such as kelp, beetroot, radish, parsley, potatoes, fish, oatmeal and bananas, should be kept in the diet.

How can I overcome my mental stress and pressure in my busy schedule of student life.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
How can I overcome my mental stress and pressure in my busy schedule of student life.
STRESS CONTROL There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1. Perform diaphragmatic or deep breathing exercises. 2. Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3. Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4. Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5. Meditate. Use visualization or imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6. Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7. Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback 8. Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9. Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10. Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery. 11. Keep an eye on things that might suggest you’re not coping well. For example, are you smoking or drinking more, or sleeping less? 12. Keep a list of the large and little hassles in your day versus the major stressful events in your life. This helps you focus on the fact that you’re keeping track of and managing those as well as you can. 13. Set aside a time every day to work on relaxation.
