I am 18 female. Attempted suicide just want to finish my life. I just hate it. What can I do.?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are very young and have a full life ahead of you. You have turned a lot of anger towards yourself. You must identify that anger, its origins, and why you feel you need to turn it against yourself. Life is precious and beautiful depending on how you want to see it, and what circumstances you allow to disturb it. Sometimes when we are not able to get what we want, we need to adjust our wants to cope with the situation. People who cannot make these changes to suit the situation end up becoming maladjusted persons and can suffer more problems in life. It is our resilience that is a sign of good mental health. Surely you do not come into that category! please talk to a counselor, either with your parents or without them too, and discuss your problems at length. That person may want you to meet with a psychiatrist, if it is really serious. Even so, do not give up on the counseling and cooperate with both the therapies, sincerely. At your age you will need to see a lot more of life and realize that you are not mature enough to take your life for want of proper understanding of your circumstances. A counselor will do the needful to explain these intricacies of life. Nothing is worth taking your life for. Your anger is making you have these thoughts and if it is not dealt with soon, you could end up depressed or you may already be depressed. Don? t be so rigid. Negotiate everything. There is always a way, if you are flexible. You must learn to lvoe yourself and your life.

I am 22 years old. Because of my family problems and my love life problems I am getting more and more irritated and get angry on small small things. M getting depressed soon. And I feel to commit suicide. I alsa attempted it twice. There is noon to understand me nor listen to me what I feel n what I want. My happiness is in my love but his family and my family isn't accepting because my family did very wrong with him. And he is behaving as his parents said him he is with me but don't want to marry me. What should I do? I am getting unnecessarily mad.

You are a suicide attempter and luckily you have not succeeded. The fact, that this guy loves you, albeit not enough to marry you against the wishes of his parents is an indication that you are lovable. You are probably into an anger related depression for all of the reasons you mention but do not turn that anger towards yourself. If this guy is not willing to marry you, just move on and find another guy who will be stronger in his resolve. This is a set up for failure as it stands, and you will get more disturbed and depressed when it really happens. Right now there seems to be no hope of any reconciliation between the two families, and therefore between you two too. If you love yourself you will not tolerate any of this nonsense with this boy and wait unnecessarily for some kind of unforeseeable outcome. Your life is very precious to you at least, and unless you show that to others (including this boy) he will not have that regard for you. Work on your depression with a counselor and sort out your personal issues and work towards building yourself up and making a fabulous personality with what you already have. Suitable boys will come flocking after you!

I doubt that any doctor states that it will never happen again. It is impossible to state or believe in this. Yes it will improve and that period may be long. Don't worry. It's the present that you live in. Improvement and preoccupation with other issues is impossible. Regards

You may continue taking the prescribed medicines, but I think time you realised that medicine is giving you only interim relief, the moment you stop taking medicine, you begin to feel uncomfortable. Our physical reactions are not only controlled physiologically but are impacted by our thought process. I recommend that you meet a psychologist and work on your feelings and thoughts- unless you challenge the irrationality of your fears and your thoughts, you will continue having these difficulties. Eventually you will land up taking higher doses of the medicines to calm yourself. Yoga and sudharshan kriya are good ways of relaxation but you will require cognitive behaviour therapy (cbt), or some other form of psychotherapy as a permanent solution to your fears.

Hi from last 3 years I am not able to live a normal life. When I am alone I think a lot of negative things. Sometimes in my friends I feel lonely. Its like I am not able to breathe properly. While driving a car or sitting in a car I feel the same. Sometimes when I walk or in standing I am having the fear of falling. I feel thirsty always. I need water anytime while walking or sitting or driving. I hav taken shelcal xl 25 for 1 n half years in 2014 to mid of 2015 bcaz of the heart palpitation. But it has gone away. But still I feel depressed and can not able to think properly. I have done my ecg test also but its normal. I need 1 person every time near me. What should I do. I know that its just stress n depression but I can not handle it properly. Kindly suggest asap.

Dear lybrate-user I can understand how problematic it would be when we lack attention and focus at work due to the racing negative thoughts. One noticeable thing is that the negative thoughts are usually automated in nature. There is a new concept regarding positive intelligence and attitude. IT is difficult to practice but definitely with assistance from psychologist within few sessions you would be able to rule out all your apprehensions and worry. Shelcal is not related to these symptoms that you have mentioned and let s do a preliminary analysis of your intensity of symptoms and decide whether any medication is required if at all but a sincere advice would be to engage yourself in psychotherapy sessions. Stress is meant to lead to a feeling aspect of fear which in turn activates our anxiety switch and thus respiratory rate, heart rate, BP rate etc goes to a toss but these symptoms are definitely manageable. IF any difficulty, please feel free to contact or consult us through video consultations if you do not live in Delhi so that we can engage you firstly in educating you about your symptoms and further plan of intervention using CBT (modification of maladaptive automated thoughts) and Mindfulness based stress reduction training. Hope it is useful.

Beat Stress and Anxiety With Homeopathy!

BHMS, MD - Homeopathy
Homeopath, Delhi
Beat Stress and Anxiety With Homeopathy!

Anxiety, stress and depression are common mental health disorders. Though they may be overlooked as “something that’s in your mind”, but these disorders can have serious implications on your health and the quality of your life. Homeopathy is an effective way of treating disorders like anxiety, stress and depression with negligible side effects.

Anxiety can be defined as the general feeling of fear or apprehension. Anxiety disorders may be seen in the form of general anxiety, phobias and obsessive compulsive disorders. Anxiety symptoms are generally sporadic and follow not set pattern. Homeopathy can be used to treat anxiety once the cause for the disorder can be identified. Two of the most common forms of homeopathic treatment for anxiety are:

  1. Aconitum napellus: Waves of anxiety or outright panic attacks can be treated with aconite. This is also beneficial if the person is fearful, restless, agitated or if he has recently experienced an accident or natural disaster.
  2. Argentum nitricum: Anxiety often takes the form of apprehension and nervousness about the future. In such a case, Argentum nitricum (Arg-n.) can be an effective form of treatment. Such cases of anxiety can worsen with heat and in crowded spaces.

The terms stress and anxiety are often used interchangeably, but they have different medical definitions. The response to situations and events that make us frustrated, anxious or angry are known as stress factors. Each person has a different response to stress. While it temporarily enhances productivity in some people, it can paralyze others. Here are two common homeopathic medicines that can be used to treat stress.

  1. Kali phosphoricum: Stress caused by overworking or illness can be treated with Kali phosphoricum. In such cases, the patient may be jumpy, over sensitive and can find it difficult to cope with normal life. Kali phosphoricum helps relax the nervous system and can also be used to treat insomnia caused by stress.
  2. Lycopodium: If stress causes the person to feel inadequate and pretend to be someone they are not, Lycopodium is a good form of homeopathic treatment. This can also treat irritability, crankiness and social withdrawal that results from stress.

Mild depression is often self diagnosed as a simple bad mood. There are many causes for depression including changes in the biochemical makeup of the brain. Here are a few homeopathic prescriptions for depression.

  1. Aurum metallicum: Failure to succeed is a primary cause for depression in people focused on work. Aurum metallicum can be used to treat such cases of depression. These symptoms may also be accompanied by feelings of humiliation and discouragement.
  2. Causticum: Depression caused by grief or loss can be treated with causticum. This also treats accompanying frequent crying, forgetfulness and mental dullness.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I have been prescribed with lonazep 0.5 mg anxiety and sleeplessness. I am taking the tablets for the past 10 months. As per doctors advise I tried to reduce the dosage to 0.25 mg so that I could stop the dosage slowly. But whenever I try to reduce the dosage after 10 days I get anxiety and sleeplessness .As a result I get nervous and panicked for the next few days thinking if I would not get sleep due to which i am forced to go back to taking 0.5 mg. Can you please advise on how to stop taking the pill?

Dear lybrate-user, It must be difficult for you. It is important to explore the reason for your anxiety and not just take lonazep. Sleep problem is very common symptom in anxiety disorder, depression and for that matter in any mental health disorder. It is also common in certain medical condition like thyroid problems. I will recommend that you get a detailed evaluation done which includes blood test and seeing a psychiatrist to get to the root of problem. There are things that can be done to improve sleep: Dos:- Make sure that your bed and bedroom are comfortable - not too hot, not too cold, not too noisy. - Get some exercise. Don't overdo it, but try some regular swimming or walking. The best time to exercise is in the daytime - particularly late afternoon or early evening. Later than this can disturb your sleep. - Take some time to relax properly before going to bed..- If something is troubling you and there is nothing you can do about it right away, try writing it down before going to bed and then tell yourself to deal with it tomorrow. - If you can't sleep, get up and do something relaxing. Read, watch television or listen to quiet music. After a while, you should feel tired enough to go to bed again. Don'ts - Go to bed when you feel tired and stick to a routine of getting up at the same time every day, whether you still feel tired or not. - Caffeine hangs around in your body for many hours after your last drink of tea or coffee. There are now many fizzy drinks, and even mints, that contain a lot of caffeine. Stop drinking tea or coffee by mid-afternoon. If you want a hot drink in the evening, try something milky or herbal (but check there's no caffeine in it). - Don't eat or drink a lot late at night. Try to have your supper early in the evening rather than late. - If you've had a bad night, don't sleep in the next day - it will make it harder to get off to sleep the following night. Hope you will find it helpful. Thanks

Dear lybrate user. I understand. Spotting is any light vaginal bleeding which occurs at any time other than when a period is due. Spotting between periods is reasonably common. There can be a few reasons why it happens but the most common are hormonal changes and it being due to an implantation bleed. I suggest you to consult a gynecologist. Take care.
