Major depressive disorder and Anxiety could be effectively managed with the help of a combination of psychotherapy, exercise, meditation and medicines.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy is found to be much effective in this case. Therapies could be lengthy procedure. But patients should understand that, they are not focusing on cure, but effective management. Effective management is equivalent to cure.

You should consult a neurologist to rule out any severe problem. If the nervousness is due to psychological factors like anxiety then consulting a psychiatrist or a psychotherapist will help.

Due to various reasons many people faces this type of problem and as much you will think about this topic you will feel more nervousness and anxiety ,just consider one thing that no one is perfect in this world, every one has some weakness although the weakness can be of different types such as you are feeling nervousness in front of peoples ,some feels nervousness in front of their Boss and some feels nervousness in front of their teachers. So whenever you go in public don't focus on others just divert your mind on someother topic such as you can initially talk with some one with whom you are not so comfortable during talking on phone, or you can divert your mind on some topic which is more problem creating for you ,by doing this slowly by slowly your confidence will build up, the main concept is you should distract your mind from that situation. You can take help of counsellor regarding this .if you need my help you can contact me. Take care.

Put it one tea spoon in coffee mug and pour warm water on it. Then take it. Two times a day is more than enough. Green coffee will cut your fat and inches loss also. Don't take it at night. Take it with breakfast and 1 hour after lunch. Don't take it instant after meal, that will stop absorption of iron present in your meal. Output will come after 2 weeks. Walk 30 mins after night meal for 2 km.

I am suffering from bipolar disorder and I am taking medicines from 3.5. Years continuously. Earlier it was treated as only depression because my psychiatric did not examined that. I judged by myself that I am suffering from bipolar disorder and told the doctor. I am taking medicines of bipolar disorder from 5 months but I am not satisfied with it. But the doctor is best as of my reach in the 150 km radius circle or zone. As I describe my symptoms to doctor he adds tablets in every visit. He does not discuss about the disease and I am always curious to know about my medicines and about disease. I am loosing hope and feeling helpless. What can I do in these conditions? Can I live a normal life? For how much time I have to take medicines?

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand your worries. In India divorce is not an easy thing to come over. The effects it produces on mental health is tremendous. Things becomes easy if you accept them. Again it is not easy to accept especially when your husband is seeking the divorce not you. But if it is unavoidable then the sooner you accept the better it will be for your health. Keep yourself busy and immersed in some productive work so that your mind gets diverted and also you get some confidence. You may go for a job or start studying. Don't just sit idle and think over the divorce thing the whole day. Pay attention to your physical health as well. Eat well. Go for a brisk walk daily. Complete some hobby. End of One relationship doesn't mean that the world is ending for you. What is stored for you in future, who knows? Believe in yourself and think that whatever happens, happens for good. DO NOT feel guilty for a moment also. If you need further help you may contact me in private message here on Lybrate.

What will be effect of my smoking from 30 years back? any suggestions for me now? I am 60 years old, no bp, no sugar.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If what you say about your health is true, you are indeed a lucky chap. But do not bank on luck to hold true for too long. There may be some developments that are silently building up and may be just a finger-snap away from manifesting itself. Thank your lucky stars but do exercise some restraint and bring in good practices to return you to good health from the unseen and lurking damages. Your body does a lot of adjustment to cope with the abuse. But after a certain period of time, that coping ability will decline and it cannot manage. Fortunately, almost all the damage by smoking can be reversed, if and when you stop and take measures to lead a healthy life of exercise, diet and rest. It is difficult to quantify the extent of damage but effects could be felt in your stamina, skin wrinkling, lung capacity, heart strain, eye damage, sexual erectile capacity, tooth decay and tartar buildup, foul breath, damage to the celia lining your throat; brain cells, and for some people the early stages of cancer promoting conditions, and a host of other problems. You are advised to stop immediately and abruptly. The damage varies from individual to individual. And if you go through a medical checkup, you will know what has damaged and to what extent. It will always seem bleak but when you do stop, you will not only arrest further damage but will reverse a lot of other damages to normalcy. It is definitely worth all the trouble instead of causing further harm. And I guarantee you that you will feel really good. Why wait for some sign that you have a problem to cease the smoking? this is a reactive mode. Everyone knows the harm tobacco consumption does. So there is no two ways about it: quit now and enjoy the benefits without waiting for a problem to surface to shake you up and make it near impossible to recover, if the situation is beyond repair.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling

In our Indian culture, we are taught to be polite and respectful especially with elders, whatever the cost to us. We must be polite with our guests and other relationships and at the workplace. Women must be never say no their in laws if they want to be happy in their married life. Employees should never say no to their bosses or managers or else they will lose their jobs.

There are 6 main reasons why people hesitate in saying NO:

1. You want to help. You are a kind soul at heart. You don’t want to turn the person away and you want to help where possible, even if it may eat into your time.
2. Afraid of being rude. I was brought up under the notion that saying “No”, especially to people who are more senior, is rude and disrespectful.
3. Wanting to be agreeable. You don’t want to alienate yourself from the group because you’re not in agreement. So you confirm to others’ request.
4. Fear of conflict. You are afraid the person might be angry if you reject him/her. This might lead to an ugly confrontation. Even if there isn’t, there might be friction created which might lead to negative consequences in the future.
5. Fear of lost opportunities. Perhaps you are worried saying no means closing doors. For example, one of my clients’ wife was asked to transfer to another department in her company. Since she liked her team, she didn’t want to shift. However, she didn’t want to say no as she felt it would affect her promotion opportunities in the future.
6. Not burning bridges. Some people take “no” as a sign of rejection. It might lead to bridges being burned and relationships severed.

Well these reasons are not true if you are familiar with the art of saying NO. Remember those people who said no to you and you didn't feel bad about it. The trick lies in when and how to say NO.
At the end of the day, it’s about how you say “no”, rather than the fact you’re saying no, that affects the outcome. After all, you have your own priorities and needs, just like everyone has his/her own needs. Saying no is about respecting and valuing your time and space. Saying no is your prerogative.

Rather than avoid it altogether, it’s all about learning the right way to say no. After I began to say no to others, I realized it’s really not as bad as I thought. The other people were very understanding and didn’t put up any resistance. Really, the fears of saying no are just in our mind. If you are not sure how to do so, here are 7 simple ways for you to say no. Use the method that best meets your needs in the situation.

The art lies in using appropriate body language, tone and proper timing. Coming across as genuine, warm and friendly will help to set the tone of the interaction and you will be the winner.

1. “I can’t commit to this as I have other priorities at the moment.”
If you are too busy to engage in the request/offer, this will be applicable. This lets the person know your plate is full at the moment, so he/she should hold off on this as well as future requests. If it makes it easier, you can also share what you’re working on so the person can understand better. I use this when I have too many commitments to attend to.

2. “Now’s not a good time as I’m in the middle of something. How about we reconnect at X time?”
It’s common to get sudden requests for help when you are in the middle of something. Sometimes I get phone calls from friends or associates when I’m in a meeting or doing important work. This method is a great way to (temporarily) hold off the request. First, you let the person know it’s not a good time as you are doing something. Secondly, you make known your desire to help by suggesting another time (at your convenience). This way, the person doesn’t feel disappointed or rejected.

3. “I’d love to do this, but …”
I often use this as it’s a gentle way of breaking no to the other party. It’s encouraging as it lets the person know you like the idea (of course, only say this if you do like it) and there’s nothing wrong about it. I often use this line when I get invitations to late night dinners and parties. Their ideas are absolutely great, but I can’t take part due to other reasons such as prior commitments or different needs.

4. “Let me think about it first and I’ll get back to you.”
This is more like a “Maybe” than a straight out “No”. If you are interested but you don’t want to say ‘yes’ just yet, use this. Sometimes I’m pitched a great idea which meets my needs, but I want to hold off on committing as I want some time to think first. There are times when new considerations pop in and I want to be certain of the decision before committing myself. If the person is sincere about the request, he/she will be more than happy to wait a short while. Specify a date / time-range (say, in 1-2 weeks) where the person can expect a reply.

If you’re not interested in what the person has to offer at all, don’t lead him/her on. Use methods #5, #6 or #7 which are definitive.

5. “This doesn’t meet my needs now but I’ll be sure to keep you in mind.”
If someone is pitching a deal/opportunity which isn’t what you are looking for, let him/her know straight-out that it doesn’t meet your needs. Otherwise, the discussion can drag on longer than it should. It helps as the person know it’s nothing wrong about what he/she is offering, but that you are looking for something else. At the same time, by saying you’ll keep him/her in mind, it signals you are open to future opportunities.

6. “I’m not the best person to help on this. Why don’t you try X?”
If you are being asked for help in something which you (i) can’t contribute much to (ii) don’t have resources to help, let it be known they are looking at the wrong person. If possible, refer them to a lead they can follow-up on – whether it’s someone you know, someone who might know someone else, or even a department. I always make it a point to offer an alternate contact so the person doesn’t end up in a dead end. This way you help steer the person in the right place.

7. “No, I can’t.”
The simplest and most direct way to say no. We build up too many fears in our mind to saying no. As I shared earlier in this article, these fears are self-created and they are not true at all. Don’t think so much about saying no and just say it outright. You’ll be surprised when the reception isn’t half as bad as what you imagined it to be.


Overcommitting by trying to cram too many activities into too little time leads to stress. We are much more likely to get sick when we are stressed. And chronic stress can cause serious health risks including depression and heart attacks.

1. OPEN COMMUNICATION: this way you are able to tell people who you really are and what is your capabilities and responsibilities towards yourself. This fosters for honest communication. Other people also see you as a human with virtues and limitations. This builds genuine relationships. Nowadays working women are clear about asking their husbands to pitch in towards house work and husbands are open about wanting a working spouse to support the finances. This creates space for pooling our strengths and working in collaboration with each other.

2. BOUNDARIES: with this practice you will be able to take care of those people who like to push or boss around other people to get their way. Drinking, smoking, drugs are common ways that children and adults with weaker personal boundaries, get drawn into. Learning to say no protects you from potential damage.

3. TIME FOR YOUR GOALS: You make out time for what is important to you and your vision of life. By saying no to late night parties, I am able to eat less junk, get a good sleep and get up early to exercise. Saying no to unrelated office presentations gets you time to spend with family.

Learn to say no to requests that don’t meet your needs, and once you do that you’ll find how easy it actually is. You’ll get more time for yourself, your work and things that are most important to you

Hi Doctor. I am a 23 year old boy. My lifestyle has become really bad, just like so many of my generation. I sleep around 4 at night consistently and wake up around 10, then work all day and it has become a routine for me. Moreover, owing to Googling my symptoms (from the smallest to the biggest), I have become somewhat of a hypochondriac. I worry about the smallest thing happening to me, mom or dad. It makes me feel stressed and anxious at all possible times. For a few months now, I have had this shaking feeling whenever I lie down. My doctor told me it was because of the stress in my mind. Now, for the past week, I have this been feeling this shaking sensation internally when I lie down, I walk or I stand. It's sort of like moving on a boat in water. What should I do?

You are working against nature's clock and you are seeing the ill effects on your body and mind. If possible, consider changing your job where you will be able to work during the day and sleep at night. Please understand what are gaining by doing this. I think you are physically and mentally tired. You need some rest and relaxation. About the shaking, that you are experiencing presently, it is more because of your mental stress. You need to be more aware of your own feelings and thoughts. Please understand your needs and try to satisfy them. Also stay away from internet. All the information available on the net may not be authentic and even if it is authentic it may not apply to you, as each person is different. You can take help from a counsellor to reduce your stress. All the best.

I am a smoker. I want to get rid of from this abdication. Please suggest some medicine so that I can easily quiet smoking.

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 lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.
