I lost my closed friend by accident. So I am very sad and I want to recovery from this. Please help me.

I lost my closed friend by accident. So I am very sad and I want to recovery from this. Please help me.
What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. When you are greaving, your mind is continuously engaged in sad and disturbing thoughts and feeling of loss and perhaps guilt. When sadness over powers you it is difficult to feel any other feelings. Even feeling happy makes you feel guilty and uneasy. Slow but effective way to over cone sadness is to engage yourself in some neutral activities such as cleaning. Walking or readjng a light book. Once you try that for few days you may be ready for following things. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities feel free contact me and we could work together for few weeks to months to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best. Edit answer.

Hi lybrate-user It seems like you have had some very difficult experiences that continue to make you feel distressed. It is natural for anyone to continue feeling worried and stressed if traumatic experiences are not processed (which can happen for many reasons ranging from adverse childhood experiences to lack of adequate resources in the present). Generally, as we try to 'delete' or 'forgive and move on' without working through the unpleasant emotions, we end up getting even more worried. To use a cliche, its like the elephant in the room. Also, in such situations, in addition to the difficult events, we also start doubting ourselves and worrying about our inability to forget and move on. This only adds to the distress, and can be a very frustrating cycle. To begin with, please give yourself time, patience and care you deserve, in the same way as you would care for someone you love. I think you are likely to find it helpful to seek help from a qualified psychologist who understands trauma, and who will be able to help you work through these concerns. All the best.

I am a 16yr old male and have addicted of smoking for last 2 years. What should I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

Dear Lybrate user, we all tend to forget to some extent. However, if you feel it is affecting your way of functioning, you can try the following techniques. - Not being able to recall properly can be due to several reasons. Being attentive and listening to what is being said or being aware about what is happening around you is the first step in our ability to remember things so that they can be recalled later. - Use techniques like Mnemonics, Method of loci, etc. To improve your ability to remember things. - When you are already preoccupied with something, or have to many things on your mind your ability to recollect information or even to put it in words properly can get affected. - Relax and give yourself the time to recollect what you are trying to recall. Putting pressure on yourself to recollect quickly in turn can lead to slower rate of recall due to feelings of stress. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

Dear , I can understand your situation. But, as you are not his legally wedded wife and as you have your own family to be with, addressing your boy friends problem and being with him during this troubled time may not be possible. The best thing you can do is to take your boy friend to a psychiatrist for consultation and treatment. Take care.

How to Accept Yourself

1. Focus on your positive qualities. It’s true that we can all improve in some ways – but start by finding your good qualities – and recognise that these are a major part of who you are.

2. Be aware of, and fight against, your negative self-talk. Negative self talk can quickly snowball and become an angry tirade against yourself – so you become your own worst critic and your own worst enemy. Instead, choose to respect yourself, to love, affirm and believe in yourself.

3. Don’t dwell on things you know you cannot change. We all have imperfections, weaknesses and flaws. They’re really not that crucial, and they’re not that big a deal. Try to keep them in perspective – and change what you CAN change.

4. Make your own decisions – don’t always look to others, and think that they know better … But choose to trust yourself.

6. Always try to do your best – as that’s all that is required. You’re a normal human being who’ll sometimes get it wrong. Get up, forgive youself, then just choose to move on.

Symptoms of clinical depression

Symptoms of clinical depression
Symptoms of clinical depression-

The symptoms of depression can be complex and vary widely between people. But as a general rule, if you are depressed, you feel sad, hopeless and lose interest in things you used to enjoy.
The symptoms persist for weeks or months and are bad enough to interfere with your work, social life and family life.
There are many other symptoms of depression and you're unlikely to have every one listed below.

1) Psychological symptoms include:-
# continuous low mood or sadness
# feeling hopeless and helpless
# having low self-esteem
# feeling tearful
# feeling guilt-ridden
# feeling irritable and intolerant of others
# having no motivation or interest in things
# finding it difficult to make decisions
# not getting any enjoyment out of life
# feeling anxious or worried
# having suicidal thoughts or thoughts of harming yourself

2) Physical symptoms include:
# moving or speaking more slowly than usual
# change in appetite or weight (usually decreased, but sometimes increased)
# constipation
# unexplained aches and pains
# lack of energy or lack of interest in sex (loss of libido)
# changes to your menstrual cycle
# disturbed sleep (for example, finding it hard to fall asleep at night or waking up very early in the morning)

3) Social symptoms include:
# not doing well at work
# taking part in fewer social activities and avoiding contact with friends
# neglecting your hobbies and interests
# having difficulties in your home and family life

If you experience some of these symptoms for most of the day, every day for more than two weeks, you should seek help from your doctor.
See your doctor if you think you may be depressed

Depression can come on gradually, so it can be difficult to notice something is wrong. Many people continue to try to cope with their symptoms without realising they are ill. It can take a friend or family member to suggest something is wrong.

Doctors describe depression by how serious it is:

mild depression has some impact on your daily life
moderate depression has a significant impact on your daily life
severe depression makes it almost impossible to get through daily life – a few people with severe depression may have psychotic symptoms

Grief and depression-
It can be hard to distinguish between grief and depression. They share many of the same characteristics, but there are important differences between them.
Grief is an entirely natural response to a loss, while depression is an illness.

People who are grieving find their feelings of loss and sadness come and go, but they're still able to enjoy things and look forward to the future.
In contrast, people who are depressed have a constant feeling of sadness. They don't enjoy anything and find it hard to be positive about the future.

Other types of depression-
There are different types of depression, and some conditions where depression may be one of the symptoms. These include:

Postnatal depression-
Some women develop depression after having a baby. Postnatal depression is treated in similar ways to other forms of depression, with talking therapies and antidepressant medicines.

Bipolar disorder-
is also known as "manic depression". It's where there are spells of depression and excessively high mood (mania). The depression symptoms are similar to clinical depression, but the bouts of mania can include harmful behaviour such as gambling, going on spending sprees and having unsafe sex.

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)-
Also known as "winter depression", SAD is a type of depression that has a seasonal pattern usually related to winter

I have fear and I am mentally depressed thinking negative thoughts what should I do.
If fear and depressive thoughts are persistent for more than 2 weeks continuously and they cause problems with day to day routines like work and relationships then, you should not hesitate in consulting a psychiatrist. Such symptoms could be due to underlying anxiety or depressive disorders which are amenable to treatment with counseling and medications if required.

Only medicines cant help you. No short cuts, consultation/sittings necessary. this is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of Love/sex/future/marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. Want to meet/speak to connect me.......

Procrastination is process of putting of things that are important and indulging into not that important things. It is like doing activities which are preferred over activities which are not preferred but important. To stay away from procrastination 1. Identify that you are procrastinating on some activity 2. Find out the reason for procrastination 3. Use strategies against procrastination eg: rewarding yourself on completing the unpleasant task, ask someone to keep a tab on your work, make a to do list. Finally always remember these tips will only help if you work on them there is no substitute for hard work.

Hello sir/mam. I love to watch my girlfriend while sex with other. This is my fantasy want to see her sex with other one and in middle I also join. I talked to my gf regarding this. Initially she was not ready but now she turns on when we talk about two men one women intercourse fantasy. She is ready to get sex by two person she is excited too much. Should we go for this? she is my life and I am her life we love each other. We are in a relationship from last 12 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The idea is exciting and may be a huge turn on. If she is your life and you are hers, why would you want to expose it to possibilities! You will put your 12 year relationship to risk and the love of your life too. Let me explain: once this is carried out there is a grave danger that this friend of yours might be more impressive in the bed and she may love that too much to want to give up! Strange things happen when passions are whipped up: she may fall endlessly in love with him and you may be conveniently eased out. He may fall in love with her and look to eliminate you by whatever means he chooses; love being as blind as it is known to be! After this experience she has a choice to make to be with one or the other at her whim, and many things can go wrong with that. You can be in charge of your emotions but never of another. The respect you have for each other and your bodies is now subject to anyone?s carnal desires. Anyway these things do not last and the end result may not look at all what you desired. You need to respect and preserve this relationship with a lot of regard and sanctity and not objectify your girlfriend?s body or her character to such fleeting whims. The choice is yours and my opinion is that it is ill-advised. Just because an idea is fantastic and turns one on does not mean it is safe for many reasons.

Hello Vavachi, I am sorry to learn about the hardships you faced in your marriage. You said you have been living separately from your partner for about 1.5 years, now. And that you have a small baby. Does that mean you are living with your parents? I presume most of your time must be spent in taking care of your toddler. Your symptoms are arising out of worry. You must be traumatized because of the past events, you are probably carrying all the unpleasant memories of the past and are also tense about your future. Following are my suggestions to you- 1. Talk to your mother and father about the problems you faced at your husband's place, at length. 2. Take a decision about your future- whether you want to go back to your husband’s home or seek legal separation. 3. Seek counseling from a good Psychological Counselor in your city. They can help you overcome your trauma and also plan the next steps for the future. I hope this helps you. Best Wishes for the future. Don't worry, you will overcome these problems.

Sore throat is discomfort, pain, or scratchiness in the throat. A sore throat often makes it painful to swallow. Like colds, the vast majority of sore throats are caused by viral infections. This meansmost sore throats will NOT respond to antibiotics. Many people have a mild sore throat at the beginning of every cold. When the nose or sinuses become infected, drainage can run down the back of the throat and irritate it, especially at night. Or, the throat itself can be infected. Strep throat is the most common bacterial cause of sore throat Chronic sore throat can be quite discomforting as it can be a source of perpetual irritation or pain in a person’s throat. It is a chronic infection of the throat characterized by a constant irritation in the throat, with or without pain, and may be associated with hoarseness of voice in some patients. Homeopathic remedies promise a safe and successful recovery and relief from this condition as they address not just the symptoms of soreness but also its underlying factors. You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance
