Dear lybrate-user, bitting yourself up for your exam will not help you. Try to forgive yourself for not having done a good job this time and focus on doing better next time. Focus on what you can do better and not the past! all the best, mz.

Hi. I've asked other questions on here before, but this one is a bit different. Since I was about 7 or 8 years old until now at 21, I've always had these imaginary world's in my head. The story lines are based on me, and how I'd like my real life to be. I create these world's when I'm bored, sad, mad, happy, anxious. Even when things are going good in my life, I create these worlds. Sometimes neglecting to go out with friends and interact with others because I lay for hours day dreaming. Some say it's not a problem, for me it us. I'm a Christian, and these day dreams are often all I can think about, which means I'm putting it before GOD. It's hard for me to focus on GOD or anything sometimes because my life has been wrapped up in these day dreams. There were times the day dreams stopped for days, even weeks, at a time, but they always seem to find their way back and consume my mind. Although never diagnosed, I have many symptoms of anxiety, ocd and depression (runs in my family). Also, the world (the actual world) seems fake, I feel fake and unreal. Almost as if I'm a zombie, watching the world from a glass, although I'm actually here. I feel like there's a blind fold over my mind (not literally) Even looking in a mirror, I get this weird, unexplainable feeling. Sometimes I shortly snap out of it and realize I'm real and reality kicks in, but that never seems to last for long. I can't tell if I'm having mental or spiritual problems, and I really want help. Thanks.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Your consistent anxiety/ depression could fuel your obsessive compulsion to day dream frequently. Given the description of your symptoms which is indicative of psychotic depression coupled with possible coexistence of mild schizophrenia, its indeed imperative that you meet up a psychiatrist in person without any further delay. Please understand that you do need treatment and that your condition is very much treatable with anti-depressants or medications as your consulting doc deems appropriate post examining you clinically. Possibility of hormonal/ chemical imbalances, if any, needs to be ruled out too. Nevertheless, I would hereby advise you to think positive, de-stress, exercise regularly and stay relaxed. Listening to soothing and melodious music of your choice may help you relax and focus. Similarly, aroma therapy with citrus oil or sweet smelling floral fragrances may also help alleviate your depressive symptoms and elevate mood positively. Simultaneously, make sure your diet/ nutrition, lifestyle including bowel habits etc all are streamlined. A mediterranean diet, enriched with plenty of leafy greens and fresh fruits, helps in this condition. Try including fresh cold water fishes like mackerel, salmon etc all into your diet too. Supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids, 500 mg to 1 gram daily, is known to help too in alleviating depression. Consuming citrus fruits/ vegetables rich in vitamin c helps strengthen immunity too. Try avoiding tea, coffee, and also high calorie foods including sweets, pastries etc all, however. Above all, please keep in mind that life does present us with varied challenges which sometimes are unpleasant to deal with. We, however, need to take every challenge that we are faced with, positively and think it as being an opportunity life has bestowed upon us mostly to evolve us and bring the best out of us. So stay mentally strong, have faith in him and you will get well soon. Do take care and I wish you all the very best.

Hi. I am staying away from family since 4 years. I am having lot of mental issues. I am going into depression. I finds my life to be hopeless. My marriage is going to get fixed by family. My family dint accept my boyfriend. Now I am struggling to forget him. I hv no other option than leaving him since my parents hv blackmailed me that they will be no more if I won't forget him. So all these things are making my life difficult. I can't sleep at nights. Mornings I gets up and I finds I am losing everything. Kind of exhausted feeling. I am struggling with life. I am not finding happiness in life. I have no hopes no dreams. I don't know what's going to happen if I continues to be like this. I can't live like this. It's painful. I need some kind of psychiatric help or I might complete lose myself.

Good ​Morning, I understand the situation that you are in. Life is so much more worth living and you know that for a fact since you have lived your life so far, you just need to enjoy what is going on and be in the present; neither in the past nor in the future. I agree that depression and anxiety that you are experiencing are due to circumstantial reasons and I believe they will alleviate when the situation changes. Positive thinking will get you where you need to be in life. If your marriage is fixed, it might be helpful to speak with your fiancee about your feelings so that he understands. If you feel understood, it may be a good relationship. Do not discount others and idealize only one person. Marriage in INDIA is about families and not about only yourself or only your and the other. So it might be useful to count them in and take heart in the fact that the person who they have chosen for you may be the right person also. It is easier said than done. However, moving on to your symptoms, I believe you need to be on medications for a good 3-4 months and we can help you with the same. Please pay and book an appointment and we can discuss options for medication therapy for you. 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.

Anxiety is apprehension of something unpleasant to come in future. The symtoms of anxiety are many and one of them may be inability to think. But this symtom may be also found in mild depressive disorder in which the person may also feel depressed. Low. Gloomy and may have pesssimistic thoughts. It is wiser to consultant a practicing psychiatrist or clinical psychologist to determine diagnosis. A mild depression may require cognitive behaviour therapy only but if not amenable antidepressants may be required.

Hi there, Many times you get fever in the night, while you are hale and hearty during the day. This makes you have a restless night and then, you are really tired in the morning. This way you don’t get a good sleep or rest that your body demands, and you have a real irritable self. What causes high fever only at night is a matter of big concern. In case you are suffering from fever at night, you need to check on the symptoms first. In case the symptoms match, you need to visit the doctor at the earliest. There are obvious causes that you can avoid to get rid of fever that visits in the night. What causes high fever only at the night, let’s know. REMEDIES FOR HEAD COLD External Pyrogens Pyrogens that travel from outside and try to penetrate your body are what causes high fever only at the night. You will see that these pyrogens tend to produce toxins that can be harmful to your health. Within the body, these pyrogens are produced as a result of monocytes and macrophages. When external pyrogens enter the body, they induce the body to produce its own pyrogens and thus resulting in feverish conditions. This is one of major causes of fever at night. Upper Respiratory Tract Infections Cold and other respiratory tract infections are probable causes of fever in the night. Sometimes, it is just a common cold that affects your body to cause fever in the night. Sometimes, it can also be infection of the larynx, bronchi or the trachea that can cause major respiratory tract infections and in effect, it can cause fever that occurs in the night. Common cold lasts for a few days while other infection depends on the patient's immunity and general time period. Urinary Tract Infections You may also experience fever only in the night when you have urinary tract infections. A very sharp pain in the urinary tract along with presence of toxins can lead to fever. You would need to consult a doctor in this case. In case you have urinary tract infection, it can be cured with some medication and proper checkup. Skin Infection In many cases, fever at night is due to the presence of skin infections. If there are major infections present on your skin that have been persistently bothering you, you will need to get it checked. This could be one of the major reasons for fever at night. Inflammations In case there is inflammation in your body due to allergic reactions to the drugs, you will get fever in the night. It could be a plain allergy that can cause major reactions. Make sure you get it checked as soon as possible. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day.

Hello, There is no single cause of depression. You can develop it for different reasons and it has many different triggers. For some, an upsetting or stressful life event – such as bereavement, divorce, illness, redundancy and job or money worries – can be the cause. take Kali phos 30 ch , 5 drops once daily. If your BP is normal then take Ginseng 1x, 1 tab once daily after meals. Revert me after 10 days.

Hello, these are the home remedies:- 1. Garlic gives good results when it comes to cervical spondylosis symptoms. Its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties help treat pain, swelling and inflammation in the neck and surrounding areas. Eat a couple of raw garlic buds on an empty stomach each morning with water. You can also take garlic capsules but only after consulting your doctor. Another option is to heat 2 to 3 crushed garlic cloves in a pan with some vegetable oil. Allow it to cool, then use it to massage the painful area for 5 to 10 minutes. Follow this with a warm bath. Do this 2 times daily. Take Hypericum 1X , 2 tabs twice daily with warm water. Revert me after 7 days.

Dear, homosexuality is not a sin. You are in relation with another gay and quite naturally, bereavement is disappointing. You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

It is not enough to quit smoking, which is in itself an excellent thing, but now you must do something to return your ravaged body, mind, and brain back to a healthy state. Depending on when you quit and how much you have smoked, it will take time for your health to revert to old times. To hasten it you must do some effective things immediately. The breathing problem probably indicates that you have already damaged your lungs from years of smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. 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 gums and 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, you should be able to understand the difference between depression and disappointment. You are disappointed because of your joblessness and therefore you are worried, sleepless, sad etc. These things happen. Nothing to worry. Ask yourself, why should I worry and cry over and over again instead of finding an alternative? once you introspect, your problem will start solving itself. Take care.
