Hello, I have a question about mental health problems that occur in a man when a girlfriend dumps him. How can such a man can recovered from his problems? Expecting a reply.

Hello Arjun, Any kind of heart break and/or separation can cause emotional pain and lead to a lowered self esteem too. Time is the best healer in such a case. Give yourself time. You will bounce back to normal in a few months. Additonally keep yourself engaged with whatever work/studies you do. When your heart feels heavy with sadness or anger then find an outlet for your sadness or anger; express these emotions to someone else in whatever way you can, either by talking to someone or by writing, drawing or singing about it. Hope this helps. Ttake care of yourself in this phase and don't run the events of the past in your midn like a reel. Allow your mind and body to heal. Good Luck.

Set a drinking goal. Choose a limit for how much you will drink. Make sure your limit is not more than one drink a day if you’re a woman, or two drinks a day if you’re a man. Now write your drinking goal on a piece of paper. Put it where you can see it, such as on your refrigerator or bathroom mirror. Keep a "diary" of your drinking. To help you reach your goal, keep a "diary" of your drinking. For example, write down every time you have a drink for 1 week. Try to keep your diary for 3 or 4 weeks. This will show you how much you drink and when. You may be surprised. How different is your goal from the amount you drink now? Watch it at home. Keep a small amount or no alcohol at home. Don't keep temptations around. Drink slowly. When you drink, sip your drink slowly. Take a break of one hour between drinks. Drink soda, water, or juice after a drink with alcohol. Do not drink on an empty stomach! Eat food when you are drinking. Take a break from alcohol. Pick a day or two each week when you will not drink at all. Then, try to stop drinking for one week. Think about how you feel physically and emotionally on these days. When you succeed and feel better, you may find it easier to cut down for good.

Hi lybrate-user, smoking can lead to multi organ functional and pathological problem such as, brain- can causes coagulation of blood and chances of brain stroke and paralysis, - hampered function of brain leading to depression, anxiety etc with decreasing your memory power and your iq level. Lung's- is highly know in causing lung cancer and urti and lrti problem. Heart - causes thickening of blood leading to heart stroke. Gastric system - is well know to cause acidity issues with peptic ulcer, diarrhoea or constipation, piles fissure fistula issues, etc drinking alcohol - is well know to cause liver cirrhosis with pancreatic issues leading to diabetes and hypertension. Both of this addiction not only effects individual personally but also effects the loved once by him/her, thereby destroying the healthy world around them.

How can you say that you will lose her.She might also be feeling same .Just talk to her regarding your concern and try to excel in your carrier.Thiss is the time to be serious regarding your carrier and achieve heights that will urely boost your confidence andd your gf will always think high about you.Make depression your power and dont wate your timeandenergy on such useless issues.This is your time for implementation of your goal in life rather thn to sit and feel depressed.Always put one thing in your mind that everybody ssalutes ariing star and no body cares for a loser and Harshita is not a loser.

Hi, certain amount of stress is normal, but when this stress increases beyond a point it creates problems. 1) identify your triggers of stress. Learn to say no. 2) manage your time properly. 3) practise relaxation techniques like meditation, going for walks, laughter therapy. 4) sleep for 8 hrs. 5) take time out for your hobby or entertainment. Revert back for safe homoeopathic medicines for stress.

I am 49 years old. I suffer from depression as my elder sister has cheated me for property. Kindly advice.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
I am 49 years old. I suffer from depression as my elder sister has cheated me for property. Kindly advice.
As you are not able to forgive your sister you are suffering. This is normal to happen. When our mind is hooked into past it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day.

I am on following medicine combination for Major depression-Lametac-100-BD,Buprol-150Mg XL1-1-0 , Venlafaxine-75Mg BD and Arpizile-10Mg HS Psychiatric combination , can there be long acting combination or a single medicine for all these medicine

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Indore
If you are now better as per your depression diagnosis if it was MDD THEN ONLY aripiprazole AND LAMOTRIGINE CAN BE TAPPERED GRADUALY. If it is bipolar depression then stratigy can be different.there is no long acting combination for more then a day preparation.OD ONCE ADAY IS AVAILABLE. GRADUAL TAPERING DOWN ONLY TO ADEQUATE DOSE OF venlafaxine od 150 mg or 225 mg may be possible. I dont advise to do it own your own because self medication can be dangerous. Better go to your psychiatrist with your query,and ask him to try to settle yourself on single drug adquete dose. If you can talk to him sensibly he may be able to do this.Best luck.

Dear Sumit. Smoking is injurious to health. There are two methods available for you to quit smoking. First method is use of deaddiction therapy which is good but chances of relapse is more. You may consult a psychologist online. Second method is to quit smoking NOW and sustain it with mental strength. Motivation therapy and will power therapy should help you doing so. Please consult a psychologist online. Take care.

Every female goes through depression atleast ones in life time. Only medications are not the solution. With mediation therapy is also important. Try to help her seek therapy. Till then encourage her to have structured days with ample useful constructive activities and atleast one excerising or relaxing schedule.

I am 21 years old and I have problem related to concentration a mind at a time so what I should do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Mind Control and some of its techniques. It?s a term that can have many meanings. Some people think of it as the ability to take control over the mind of other people. I prefer the meaning of controlling your own mind instead. So what does this term mean? As I have understood up to now, it is the ability to understand and control your feelings, emotions and behaviour. As you do this you have full control of yourself and you can achieve many goals in your life. Also you will have great self-confidence which is the key to success. All the methods that are used for mind control have the same results. They bring you to a brain-state where you can reprogram your mind. Most of these techniques, when applied, require being active in order to affect you positively. The truth is that it is you making the changes and not the method you are using. The method just helps you reach the appropriate brain-state. Some benefits of mind control are listed below: o Develop Self-Esteem o Cure Fears o Quit bad habits o Become spontaneous and social o Fight Depression o Overcome painful situations Correct elements of your character o Change your reactions o Become more intuitive

Dear Sir, I smoke 10- 15 cigarettes daily. Now I am feeling throat soreness or discomfort while swallowing meal or li...
Please meet with an ENT specialist and investigate this throat problem. You have to quit smoking and need not wait for the results of the doctor's visit. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in 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 lybrate user. I can understand. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. I suggest online counseling and" effective learning" techniques. Take care.
