I am an emotional person, but I feel like crying every time whenever I see movies or someone shout at me or like on small things. Which I think is not worth crying. Is it a kind of depression. Because afterwards I realize that I shouldn't cry.

Sir/mam. My friend is suffering with anxiety problem. Nd its increasing day by day. Plss tell me the bestest treatment for her.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (UWS, Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. Anxiety can be of various types and can be part of one's personality, be a disorder in its own right or present as a part of other psychiatric disorders. There is no one best treatment for all of anxiety. SO we will need to see the exact nature and characteristics of the anxiety and come up with a personalized solution. Exercise, good sleep, meditation, breathing exercises, balanced diet and plenty of water are advisable. Medicines, counseling/ therapy may be needed. Please see a professional in person for a proper evaluation and management. I am aware that it is tempting to have a quick solution, but the reality is it is best to deal with these kinds of problems after a proper evaluation. Take care!

You have to complete full course of anxiety and not leave it half way. Consult him again and complete full course of anxiety medication which should last for around an year.

I am jobless from last 3-4 months, so always negative thoughts come in mind: like. I can't do anything, I am illiterate, etc. Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Are you illiterate? Then you could have a problem in this highly competitive work environment. If you have been laid off for just a few months, then do not get discouraged. If you have been fired, you may have a real problem. Otherwise, do persevere and actively seek employment according to your aptitude. Sometimes you may have to take up any job for the time being and keep on the lookout for a more suitable one that meets your career aspirations. Depending on your field of work, things may be easy or difficult. Giving up is never the right course. Life is a fight always but a disciplined approach will take you far and wide. If in the interim you are able to develop some more skills or attend courses that would enhance your marketability and make your r�sum� read even better, please undertake to do them. You could always explain to prospective employers that you used your time well and productively. That sure will impress companies and provide you with suitable openings. Of course, there are a lot of self-employment opportunities that anyone can do anytime, if they are determined and have some seed money: No qualifications, no literacy, no handicaps. You will be your own master and your results will depend entirely on you.

How to solve the problem of depression and dyslexia. These two diseases are connected.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, dyslexia, also known as reading disorder, is a learning disability characterized by trouble with reading despite normal intelligence. Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings and sense of well-being. Dyslexia and depression are not related. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mindpower depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. You should be able to understand the passage or the information given perfectly so as to help your brain to retain the information or knowledge. Once it is retained properly, recollection happens whenever a memory relation is given. Understanding usually requires creative learning methods and repetition. Providing rest to your brain every half hour while studying continuously help improve concentration. Physical exercises, entertainment, socialization improves memory. Diet which includes fruits, vegetables, nuts also improves memory. Mind games like Sudoku too help. Please understand these facts and apply them on your daily routine. Take care.

Hi, I'm a 20 years old college student, depressed since 2 years. Life was normal when used to go school. cause, I hardly used to spend time with my family. But, the whole scenario had changed from the day I started going college. And it's not studies, it's my parents who, I don't know expects WHAT from me. I have siblings and cousins who earns good and are enjoying their life to the fullest now. I even have a younger cousin and my aunt always compares Me with her every time, in front of guest in front of neighbours and the sad part is my parents do nothing but just laugh with them. I feel like I am in a competition competing with my siblings and cousin, when they are praised and everybody laughs at me. Not body supports me not my mother, father not even my real sisters. They never did guide me ever. They literally laugh at me when I do something wrong and my parents scold me and always try to make numbers by showing me the real culprit. And I know, it's not there fault, my parents don't trust me enough to believe me. I feel like nobody's there for me. My life is so depressing. I feel like killing myself:(My life is a big NO NO. No matter whatever I do, I know, my parents won't take my side, ever ever ever. I know you must be thinking, no way a parent can be like this. they don't like me but life is all about adjusting and I've tried to adjust it since years and now I can't, I repeat, I can't take this anymore. Please advise.

Dear lybrate-user, I know nobody likes comparison with others. You can beat it, by excelling in another aspect where you are more talented. For all these, your negative attitude will not help. You are using in your thinking many global words like no one, no body, no no, ever ever, etc. You should question yourself whether it is a fact or your thought. It may be your thought only which you are confusing as fact. In the world, everything happens 100% is rare. Like that never happens 0% is also rare. When you think of rare things, you will be rarely right. Since you feel like killing yourself, it is better that you come on online consultation and treatment. Or tell your parents to take you to psychiatrist or clinical psychologist. You may be given antidepressant tablets and/or talk therapy. With treatment your attitude about your family will change. Please remember that your were fine in school days in the same family since your attitude was not so negative at that time.

I worry a lot or you can say I usually have fear of irrational things like fear of happening bad incidents, fear of thinking bad thoughts. I had gone through so many ups and downs in last three years of my life and underwent huge stress. Now everything is ok but I use to fear if something bad happens and how shall I deal with it. I also use to suffer from digestive problems. Is there any correlation between thinking and stomach disorder? Last week in night I got up suddenly and felt difficulty in breathing, dropping heart beats and felt fear of death. This lasted up to 10 to 15 minutes and then I became normal. It happened first two years ago. I want to ask, Are all these kind of anxiety due to over thinking, or due to chronic stomach disorder or due to both? Pls give your valuable advice.

Msc - Clinical and Counselling Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Excessive or ongoing worry and tension, an unrealistic view of problems, restlessness, irritability, muscle, tension, headaches, sweating, difficulty concentrating etc. Are all symptoms of a general anxiety disorder. Here are a few things you can try to reduce anxiety: - Deep Breathing: When you’re anxious, you breathe faster, but by breathing deeply from the diaphragm, you can reverse these symptoms and calm yourself down. -Meditation High levels of stress can cause physiological symptoms like indigestion. Exercise, eat well and sleep well in order to reduce stress. Difficulty breathing, dropping in heart rate and fear of death are a few symptoms of a panic attack. When you feel a panic attack coming try using coping statements. For example, instead of thinking" I'm having a heart attack" stop and tell yourself "I've gotten through this before and I can do it again" For further help please consult privately. Good Luck.

My have affair with some body once o kept a hidden camera and she had sex with him and now it appears every time I go to bed and I could not sleep more than three to four hours and I cannot get rid of my mind.always thinking about it

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Good Morning ~ It appears to me that you have always had suspicious about your wife and so that has been confirmed now with your keeping a secret camera. You found that your wife was having sex with another man and you are upset about it. I am sure you want to do something about it. That something is very important and it can make of break your marriage. If you have kids it is important that you make sure they do not suffer. In your history you have made sure that you mention that you are not sexually active and masturbate. This may not be a good idea. The wisest way to go about it is to show you wife the video you made and confront her with it. It may also work well to actually know what she thinks. If she has remorse and regrets the episode to the extent where she feels guilty then it may be a good idea to patch things up for your kids sake. It seems also that your physical health is being affected due to your wife's sexual excursions. I hope you seek the help of a psychiatrist. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

How much days married couples leave saparetogaither. With out sex ofter a baby. Should women's controls their sex more then men? How is men's control with out their wife's mentally. Is it possible?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, everyone is different. There's no norm, or set time, when you should aim to have sex by. The most important thing is to wait until you are physically and emotionally ready. A small number of couples start having sex within the first month after the birth, but about half wait until at least six weeks, as do most women who have had a tear or episiotomy. By three months, most couples have tried sex again, though some couples prefer to wait until after six months. If you both feel ready to have sex before your postnatal check at about six weeks after the birth, you can go ahead if you want to. Some health professionals suggest trying sex with your partner before your postnatal check, if you both feel ready, so they can address any problems at your appointment. You do not need to mentally prepare yourself, just keep yourself busy, do some exercise or meditation and masturbation is always possible option. Consult for any query.

How should I get out of my past memories with my ex-boyfriend I am not able to think I want to forget but dont know how?

MBBS
Integrated Medicine Specialist, Delhi
Hi, My sympathies for you loss, however, I do not write to just offer placating words of comfort that will make you feel good for a short time and then leave you feeling incomplete again. What you probably might not be aware of is that there is considerable evidence that some trauma is good for long term growth. The predicament you find yourself in is no doubt distressing and likely makes you feel that you are lacking in something and are not' whole' or complete. Any life event that causes distress because of a perceived loss or separation from a loved one causes primarily two things - it makes you want to recover or somehow regain what you have lost and it disrupts your sense of identity. All of us rely on others to make our lives meaningful, happy and complete. We want to feel desired and loved and cherished. But that doesn' t always happen. Remember, that right at this moment you ARE complete. You have everything that you need to lead a purposeful and meaningful life. This doesn' t mean that you will not have obstacles or disappointments in your way. What it means is that you can choose to proactively cope with and look beyond your loss or predicament. You could begin by taking the following steps: - When memories, sorrow and distressing thoughts arise, don' t judge yourself or others. Try not to analyze or get too drawn into your thoughts. Observe them without participating in them. - If necessary, find a close friend or family member to talk to. Someone you can open yourself to without fear of being judged. - Cope by asking yourself" what can I do to make the situation better" Try and come up with ways to structure your day with activities that you enjoy, stay engaged with some routine or work or study. See if you can spend some time exercising or reading. - Don' t be too harsh on yourself. If you find yourself musing and anguishing over what you have lost, gently remind yourself that you cannot undo the past, and that some distress is a normal part of life. Remember to affirm that you have the capability to overcome difficult circumstances. - Spend some time considering that there are so many millions in this world who have had devastating losses and heartbreak. Even though you are in pain, you still probably have much to be grateful for like a family perhaps, or good music to listen to, or something as basic as food and shelter! A sense of gratitude helps overcome the feeling of being a victim and pushes you to look for solutions. - Take small steps. Be proud of yourself if you accomplish something, even if it is just reading what is written here. -If you like to read, read inspirational material. Spend time taking walks if possible, and do remember to get a good nights sleep, and eat well. I wish you well and hope that in time, you will come to terms with your loss and find a sense of balance!

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life, 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.

I am 35 years old past 6 years I am suffering from panic attack like fear of death. please give some examples to overcome.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Having panic attacks for so long you could be quite disturbed and need to meet with a counselor immediately. On that person’s advice you may have to meet with a doctor and get on medication if so advised. Even so you must continue with the counseling to develop coping mechanisms to face the daily challenges of life. Because you are not handling fear well, you tend to over-react to normal fear with abnormal panic attacks. Then your panic reaction, which is fear based, irritates you easily and gets you angry. In other words the anger/irritation is an escalation over the fear. This is not advisable and it is happening because you are not dealing well with the panic. Anger is a cover-up feeling for the fear, and people may mistakenly respond to the anger whilst the scare remains unresolved and it may also increase because of the discomfort you have caused to others with the anger!!! About the issue itself: Do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? Have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? You can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Any way you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (I suggest you join the Toastmasters Club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too, though not to this extent!!!! There are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: Awareness, intimacy and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of panic reaction to disappear from your life for good.

Sir I am suffering from homosexuality pls give me any solution to avoid boys and I want feelings on girl s.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Since you are young, do not be fooled by the orientation right away. At this age and due to many factors both environmentally and naturally, you could be driven into a choice that appears natural but is only in that guise to distract you from what is suppressed. So wait for some time and see if this is your true leaning and then you can pursue it. Talk to a sexologist too and get the full understanding of sex and sexuality; which is physical primarily for the former and the latter incorporates femininity and masculinity. There are some beautiful subtleties that need to be grasped and when you are in the full know of these aspects, your decision could be in the right perspective. There are many factors that may have influenced this gay mindset. It could be due to genetic factors; mixed parenting roles between mother and father; an over-bearing father/mother; you may have cultivated the drive when we are all in that phase between 7 years to 14 years when we tend towards homosexual contacts with our peers as a social adaptation; You may have had gay exposure at some time in your life; you may have had too much of male exposure during a considerable part of your life; You could have cultivated more of anima than animus and vice versa depending on the role you have identified with; and it may happen because of some social development when you may have found it easier to relate to boys than to girls. These are some of the reasons that I can think of right now. If you do not like it, don’t just resist it because that will make you want it more. Instead talk to a sexologist and understand these orientations and get some education on sex and sexuality to know what your urges are all about. Then he could propose some measures to take to cultivate your heterosexual drives instead. In the meantime, do spend time with girls and learn to enjoy their company and to respect them overall. If you indulge in the thought of your attraction towards boys it will trouble you no end. Just let it be there but cultivate healthy relationships with them and spend more time in female company. In time you will be able to appreciate your leanings towards girls more. If you wish you may go for hypnotherapy too.
