I am gone to depression from 1 year. About think my past situations. How can I get got of it? Any solution.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches.

I have a habit for thumb sucking from childhood and now I am 29 yrs old till now I am not able to stop that what should I do? is there any medicine for this?

M.Phil clinical Psychology, MS Psychotherapy and Counseling, PGDGC, MSc Psychology
Psychologist, Chennai
Thumbsuking is a symptoms of anxiety. Just try to identify the situations in which you involve in the habit (mostly it may be either anxiety provoking situation or situations of either excitement and boredom) and take conscious efforts not to do it. If you consistently follow the pattern along with other anxiety reducing techniques you will be able to quit the habit.

I have recently started with my job, 2 months back and in the starting I was stressed because of work so I wasn't able to sleep at nights but now from last 15 days I am not stressed because of work but still I am not able to have a relaxed sleep. The whole night, I keep working in my dreams, I mean I keep doing the same work which I do in office and when I wake up I do not remember much about it and I feel tired. I get up minimum 7-10 times at night to see the timing. I tried listening to meditation music before sleeping but nothing is helping.

You are definitely under some stress and it si probably related to your work. It may settle on its own over time. But not getting enough sleep is bad medicine. So I suggest you do some of the following even if you have tried some of them: The lack of sleep, i.e. Sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

1.*You can’t improve concentration and memory without physical energy. Have healthy food habits and timely meals. Eat nutritious food. Avoid processed food, and street food. *. Physical exercise improves blood circulation to brain and improves clarity of thinking. * Concentrate on your work with enthusiasm. Don’t divert or try to perform multiple tasks at a time If the subject appears difficult, tackle bit by bit. *If you don’t understand first time, leave some time and try again when your mind is fresh. *Any amount of reading without understanding is a waste. *Jot down points in your note book and you remember the points better. *Underline important points. You remember them better. *Have good night’s sleep. Maintain timings. *. Give task to your brain. Avoid idling. *Stop multitasking.. *Play brain games.. *Master a new skill.. *. Have breaks and enjoy a joke with your friends. Continuous slogging makes you lose interest in your task. *. Be confident. You can DO IT.

My sister has been taking antidepresant estalopram 5mgfor the last 12 years at the age of 15 I am not fully improved now I want to leave the medicine how.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
First of all do not ever self-regulate your medication. It is dangerous and the chances of relapse are very high, if it is not the right time. Your doctor will help decide that. The fact that you want to go off of the medication is your drive to work really hard to come off of it. Here is what you need to do: combine medication with therapy to learn some coping skills and develop tools to face the day-to-day challenges with confidence. Then if you go episode-free for three years under the combination of medicine and therapy, you could initiate weaning you off of the medication gradually and under strict monitoring of the psychiatrist. I know that this may sound discouraging but if you had contacted me 12 years ago I would have told you at that time to combine the two therapies. But it is never too late, and now you have a clear agenda and time plan to resolve the depression. In the meantime please do the following: when you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on tv or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in god to alleviate your sufferings. Don? t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. You have youth on your side.

Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms. U seem to be having anxiety disorder, kindly consult a psychiatrist and get treated.

I smoke every day n I m addicted to it. I m smoking from the age of 16 now I m 18 what should I do I feel very bad from inside while smoking cigerate.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The discomfort you are feeling inside is very good because it can trouble you enough to help quitting. Congratulations that you want to quit smoking. Tobacco consumption, either through smoke or other edible forms, is always harmful. The desire to quit is a good starting point. The best way to quit is to know more about the ill-effects of tobacco. The knowledge is astounding and scary. That information itself should help you to want to quit. Smoking uses the respiratory system and gives you a faster kick. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. There are more than 7000 harmful chemicals in cigarette smoke! You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Then you need to identify why you smoke and chew tobacco: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. You should start exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga) or chewing, and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need, for a little while. You may 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 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 tobacco. 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. Don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. As Mark Twain once jocularly said, “giving up smoking is easy; I have done it many times”. 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 Sir, I am doing chartered accountants course in Chennai. I am not yet completed my inter label, due to my family problem and my age is now 26. Now my family is fine & my elder brother giving money for my study. But when I am reading, to my mind past problem of my & my family coming. I am feeling emotional & why not yet completed my inter label making me and my mind weak and again my hostel siner boys talling me, why are you not going for a job. But I want to study. Please help me how to forget all & concentrate on my study as my exam is starting in may 3rd 2015. Thank you.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I think that your hostel friends are giving you good advice. If you are not able to concentrate and you keep thinking of the past and the family situation, then it is better for you to work somewhere. At work you will be compelled to concentrate on the job. Sometimes it is better to take a break from your studies due to the distractions you experience. You can still do your inter, by studying in the evening. You may also go for tutorials, which will aid you in studying. This will entail some costs for which you need to work. Do not waste your brother?s hard-earned money, if you are not doing justice to it. There are a lot of youngsters who work and study. I think you need help in your studies, if not from tutorials, ask some of your friends to help. You may have a mind block that is hampering concentration.

Dear lybrate user if the habbit has become irresistible than try not to go for lying down on floor immediately but rather hold yourself just for few minutes and try doing deep and slow breathing for some time. Freezing yourself for sometime during that moment may be difficult initially but soon you will get mastery over it. Do not get disheartened with initial failures to freeze yourself during the urge and try each time when the urge comes. If you hold yourself during the most intense moments you will notice that within minutes the intensity for doing the behavior decreases and that you can hold yourself back from doing it. Do tell me later about your try.

Symptoms of Depression And its Homeopathic Treatment

Depression is a state of mind that adversely affects the way a person thinks, feels and behaves. It’s becoming an unpleasant existence in everyone’s life these days due to lot of factors such as:

  1. Competition with Others

  2. Desires not getting fulfilled

  3. Relationship related concerns

  4. Performance Pressures

  5. Societal Pressures etc.

In most cases, depression does not have a single cause. Rather, it results from a mix of factors i.e. your genes, events in your past, your current circumstances and much more. Depression, like many other behavioral health issues, has complex interacting Biological, Psychological, Social and Environmental contributing factors. Depression in teenagers is very common owing to hormonal changes and increased stress of coping with studies and the social world. Genetic factors also play an important role in triggering depression in teenagers.

Signs and Symptoms of Depression:

  1. Persistent sadness: Constant feeling of sadness irrespective of the company.

  2. Thoughts or attempts of suicide: Thinking that suicide will solve all problems.

  3. Fatigue: A state of decreased energy levels.

  4. Helplessness and hopelessness: Living with a though that nothing will ever get better.

  5. Loss of interest in daily activities: Lack of interest in your hobbies, your favourite pastimes or social activities, or sex etc.

  6. Appetite or weight changes: Significant weight loss or weight gain.

  7. Sleeping disorders: Either insomnia, especially waking in the early hours of the morning, or oversleeping.

  8. Irritability: Low tolerance level.

  9. Loss of energy: Feeling fatigued, sluggish, and physically drained.

  10. Self-loathing: Feeling of worthlessness or guilt.

  11. Concentration issues: Trouble focusing or remembering things.

Homeopathy For Depression

Homeopathic remedies for depression in teenagers are no different from those used for treating depression in adults. In the initial stages or in the milder form or in people who are not aware of the disease, depression can go unidentified till its implications become too obvious. People often overlook it as a mere low mood or some start assuming it as a part of their psychological makeup. Even families or spouse start accommodating accordingly, thereby making identification of depression all the more difficult. Homeopathic treatment for depression is great form of alternative medicine and natural therapy for depression.

Advantages of using Homeopathy for Depression:

  1. The best part of homeopathic treatment is that the homeopathic medicines are totally free from side effects and its long term use leads to no damage to the body. Homeopathic medicines also do not cause any sedation.
  2. The options in conventional treatments are either to take antidepressant medications or to remain depressed, however, homeopathic medicines are said to be side effect free and its long term use leads to no damage to the body. Homeopathic medicines also do not cause any sedation.
  3. There are lot of medications in homeopathy which are used, post understanding of the behaviour of a person; his/her complete biological and genetic status, his/her existing medical conditions. 
  4. It is always recommended to consult a homeopath and not to go for self-medication, as it requires specific potencies of medicines for them to be effective on the medical condition.
