I need psychological help. I don't know whether these are the symptoms of depression or not, but I feel so that I am getting depressed day by day. I feel sad, I always cry.

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. They have love-hate relationship with close ones. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

Dear lybrate-user, anger and aggressions are emotions. You are 23. At your age, getting emotional is normal and is due to upsurge in male hormones. But you should practice restraint. I suggest you with relaxation therapy. Please consult a psychologist.

Hello doctors! I'd like to ask how does one remain "stress free" There's always something perpetually worrying me. How does one force themselves to think positively when nothing's going right? I'm diagnosed with anxiety and I'm not in a position to consult someone. I'm unable to enjoy food like I once used to since I'm slightly nauseous almost all the time and feel jittery 24x7. I'm told to meditate (I've tried this a few times doesn't work much), replace negative thoughts with positive ones (only if it were this easy) and I'm frustrated with my condition so much so that I cry sometimes to let it out temporarily. Are there any actual, practical ways to control this? Thank you.

Hi lybrate-user! I can understand that you are not abrle to overcome this problem after undergoing suggestion. Actually you need to change your attitude, the way you perceive, your mindset etc. You need to be strict in following the counseling advices given to you. You actually do not know how to carry out. It would be better if you could seek a Professional Psychologist at your locality and undergo treatment for the same, since you are unable to carry. Be relaxed With regards

I am 17 years old female, nowadays I feel tired very often and n I'm able to concentrate on my studies also because I also feel sleepy a lot. And I can't afford to be like this because I have boards coming up. Could you please suggest me what can I do about it?

Psychologist,
You are going to write an important public exam but let it not overwhelm you so much that you don't take time out for socialising, relaxing and exercising. Because a strong body, mind and emotional state can overcome any difficulties in life including planning for the future. If you devote all your time to studies then you are overloading your brain and body and it will certainly forget information to get rid of information overload. 1. Instead you need to study smart and save on your time and relax, have fun so that the brain gets time to rest and doesn't forget. For eg. You can use highlighter to mark out important portions, summarise the most important points and elaborate mentally, make diagrams, charts etc if you are a visual person, use all your senses to study by adding visual, kinesthetic and auditory cues, teach other students and you will brush up your portions, create and use mnemonics for faster recollection. 2. Eat light food with lean proteins, low carbohydrates, sugars and fats. Eat more of whole grains, fish, chicken, eggs, fresh fruits and vegetables. Avoid all junk and processed foods as they are loaded with chemicals and have a direct impact on brain functioning. 3. Take out time to exercise regularly and give your brain the oxygen boost that it needs during preps and exams. Aerobics, gym, cycling, walking, yoga. Anything that'll freshen you up. 4. You could have certain ayurvedic brain tonics which enhance memory and it's general functioning. Please see a doctor for this tip. 5. You must catch on your beauty sleep for the brain to rest adequately after a marathon session of studies. Our brain gets tired and needs to rest after a heavy activity to release all the toxins and repair damages. Dreams are a way to remove unhealthy thoughts which is important at this time. 6. Seek counselling if you re mentally and emotionally disturbed. Stress, anxiety and tensions make the brain forget much more than anything else. You willbe able to unload your stress in an unbiased space and learn tips to handle it effectively as well. These are general tips.

Many anti depressants help in recovery of mood quickly, as you said memory might not be improved, unless treated specifically for that. Get another psychiatrist opinion, your prescription might meed revision to improve memory, it is very easy though.

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety.. Take care.

Smoking - How Quitting It Is Good For Your Heart?

MBBS, DM - Cardiology, MD
Cardiologist, Hyderabad
Smoking - How Quitting It Is Good For Your Heart?

If you are concerned about the health of your heart, one of the primary and most important things to do is quit smoking. Avoiding and abstaining from smoking will heal the nicotine damage caused to your heart. This will enable you to lead a long and healthy life. Here are the reasons why you should quit smoking for the sake of your heart:

  1. Reduced risk of heart attack: The benefits of not smoking start hours after you quit, and the heart rate and blood pressure get normalised slowly. By quitting smoking, your chances of having a heart attack are reduced by 50%.
  2. In case of women, quitting smoking has special benefits: Women generally have a smaller body frame than men, and the harmful effects of smoking on a woman’s heart are considered to be more dangerous and concentrated. Female smokers under the age of sixty are more likely to experience a condition known as cholesterol plaque erosion, which is a fatal blood vessel condition. Women smokers are likely (seven times more than men) to develop heart complications due to smoking.
  3. When you quit smoking, your heart is no longer exposed to harmful chemicals: Cigarette smoke contains toxins such as arsenic, formaldehyde and benzene. The chemical substances may be hazardous to the blood vessels in your body, and the heart muscles get damaged. Once you quit smoking, these chemicals will no longer enter your body, making your heart healthier.
  4. Quitting smoking benefits other people as well: When children and people are exposed to tobacco smoke, their chances of having plaque in their heart’s arteries are enhanced. This may cause a stroke.
  5. Quitting smoking reduces the chances of getting hospitalised: A smoker may be at the risk for getting hospitalised because of several conditions such as congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, much more than a non-smoker. After quitting smoking, the chances of being hospitalised decrease within five years.
  6. Quitting smoking lowers the risk of having atherosclerosis: Atherosclerosis is a blood vessel disease which is caused due to inflammations all over the body. Because of this, the arteries may stiffen and thicken. Smokers face the risk of acquiring this condition three times more than non-smokers.

You can quit smoking most effectively by combining behavioural support along with prescribed medication. People using this type of multi-treatment are likely to become successful at quitting smoking. You should consult a specialist who is certified in tobacco treatment, who will provide you with a plan. It will include counselling, medicines and a nicotine replacement therapy. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Cardiologist.

I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid junk food.

Dear, 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. For other four treatment methods, I will help you. For the time being, as a tip, I suggest you to ignore the vibration feeling. Please post a private question to me with all the details. Take care.

If we talk in terms of Ayurveda, all these are signs of Imbalanced VATA and PITTA of body. Thus he doesn't have control over his thoughts and actions. He need to change all his lifestyle and eating pattern. But if he is not willing to follow these, we can start with Some Himalyan herbs, in a couple of week as the balance will rise his aggressiveness, weight, habit of taking drinks and smoking will gradually reduce of his own, you need not to ask him to stop anything.

I am 24 years old girl and I am in love with a 56 years old married man. He respects my feelings and tries his best to keep me happy but he cannot leave his wife and child and even I can't ask him to do so since it would be a sin from my side. But it hurts me a lot as it feels like I cannot get him completely even when are together holding each other. I really love him and I really love all his wrinkles and dry skin, I just can't think of anybody else. I want to adjust and be happy with all that he tries to give me because I know he really tries, he really cares for me, for my feelings and my honesty towards him. Please help me to adjust myself and control my extra desires. I lost my both the parents at the age of 11 so I have seen the world and this is the reason I know nobody can love me the way he does. I don't want to hurt him.

You are into a relationship without a future. It is common for a person with deprived childhood to attach with any possible source of comfort and affection. But, such a relationship is usually not acceptable to the society. Also, the wife and child of the person with whom you are in relationship will be in angst and perhaps rightly. You will definitely get a right match for yourself someday. Like you, there may be several good boys in need of love. You just need to look out into the world around you. The first thing I will suggest, is to take time off this relationship for few days to think clearly. You should be able to get a solution yourself.

Hi, you need to learn to manage your stress. You can discuss with me to learn stress management at work. Practice yoga and meditation. Although you could technically consider yoga your daily exercise, practicing the deep stretches and slow body movements will help you to clear your mind. Meditating - clearing your mind - while practicing gentle yoga will give double the relaxation effect to ease your stress. Use guided imagery to imagine a place that makes you feel at peace. Imagine somewhere that you feel happy; focus on the details to fully remove your mind from the present. Do yoga alone or in a group setting to help you learn new poses. As you advance in your yoga, you will be able to form complex stretches that force you to focus and take your mind off your stress. Practice deep relaxation by doing progressive muscle relaxation. This is when you work through your body by tensing your muscles, holding the tension for ten seconds, and then releasing it. This will soften and relieve all the muscles in your body.

Dear lybrate user, counselling typically is for a shorter duration and psychotherapy is for a longer duration. In situational difficulties or simple problems counselling is helpful but for conditions of slightly major intensity like moderate to severe depression, addictions, schizophrenia etc. Psychotherapy is used. Psychotherapist uses one particular therapeutic approach to deal with the person's problems. But in counselling integrative (mixed) therapy approach can be used. Counselling is more about making the person aware about his/her own mind set, values and perceptions and thought processes and it encourages the person to modify his/her perceptions or reactions etc. Psychotherapy is a slow and steady effort which follows specific guidelines of a therapy and ultimately helps the person to come out of acute depression, anxiety, phobia etc. While in counselling, a person need not be under medication. But mostly when under psychotherapy the person is put on some medication by the psychiatrist (not the counsellor), here medication and therapy goes hand in hand.
