You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints. Try to get away from loneliness and meet other friends or relatives.

I'm a 22 year old female. For the last five years, I've not been able to be successful in anything. I think I'm just lazy. But i've had suicidal tendencies and have absolutely no interest in anything anymore. I also had an incident of sexual abuse in my childhood. What do I do? Am I depressed or just plain lazy?

Five years ago you would have been 16 years when the last stage of adolescence beckoned and you would have needed to resolve any childhood issues (like this sexual abuse you talk of among others), once and for all. It appears that you have lived with that and therefore there could be important things to be taken care of soon. This could all lead to depression (anger-related) and for some reason, you have turned the anger inwards and that is propositioning the suicidal tendencies. You must, therefore, meet with a counselor soon and if that person recommends a doctor you must comply with the medication too. It is also advisable to take your parents to meet with the counselor to help identify the childhood issues and also to know about the sex abuse. You have been a victim and need not blame yourself in all this. But it is important to face all the repercussions of sharing your experiences to a professional and in front of your parents. You will find it a great relief and will immediately feel better for it.

I cant concentrate on any single work while I am doing anything on that time I will think about many other thing that doesn' t matter on the time and I am just 18 year old and mupy memory is too weak

Dear, I sincerely think you are exaggerating. You cannot concentrate on one work 100% because very few people will be able to do so. You cannot have memory loss problem because you are too young. Routing low memory is possible because of your lazyness or because of your hurried activities. That is all. You may consult a psychologist if you prefer. Take care.

Keep mobile switched off or vibrator mode when studying. Make it a point to bring your mind from distractions to study and work. If you control your mind, mind becomes your friend, but if you allow your mind to wander or be distracted, then mind becomes your enemy.

Dear lybrate-user, You are consulting a psychiatrist already. He is giving appropriate drugs. I don't know the doses of each drug. However you can discuss with him the current problems also. He will adjust the dose. If you want to add something more, please add some alternate therapy to the drugs, like yoga, pranayama, mindfulness meditation, nature cure, exercise, creative hobbies, etc.

It's very frustrating and confusing when one of the partner appears to be very elusive of an intimate part of the relationship. Lack of intimacy does impact the relationship in many ways. Meet a sexologist and relationship therapist or a psychologist along with your wife to understand what's happening in the relationship and what's stopping your wife from indulging in intimacy. Don't ignore or delay thinking that time will make everything alright. The sooner you resolve this issue, the better it will be. All the best.

It is less likely that you have Alzheimer's disease. The possibility is that all your memory related issues are due to stress, lack of attention and mood problems. Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

General Physician,

“Anxiety is a normal, predictable part of life. However, “people with an anxiety disorder are essentially phobic about the feeling state of anxiety.” And they’ll go to great lengths to avoid it. Some people experience generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), excessive anxiety about real-life concerns, such as money, relationships, health and academics,. Others struggle with society anxiety, and worry about being evaluated or embarrassing themselves, he said. People with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) might become preoccupied with symmetry or potential contamination. “The bottom line is that people can experience anxiety, and anxiety disorders, related to just about anything. Most of these steps contribute to a healthy and fulfilling life, overall. For instance, “making some basic lifestyle changes can do wonders for someone coping with elevated anxiety,” Take these steps from today. 1. Take a deep breath. “Deep diaphragmatic breathing triggers our relaxation response, switching from our fight-or-flight response of the sympathetic nervous system, to the relaxed, balanced response of our parasympathetic nervous system,” according to, clinical psychologists. Who have suggested the following exercise, which you can repeat several times: Inhale slowly to a count of four, starting at your belly and then moving into your chest. Gently hold your breath for four counts. Then slowly exhale to four counts. 2. Get active. “One of the most important things one can do [to cope with anxiety] is to get regular cardiovascular exercise,” For instance, a brisk 30- to 60-minute walk “releases endorphins that lead to a reduction in anxiety.” You can start today by taking a walk. Or create a list of physical activities that you enjoy, and put them on your schedule for the week. Other options include: running, rowing, rollerblading, hiking, biking, dancing, swimming, surfing, step aerobics, kickboxing and sports such as soccer, tennis and basketball. 3. Sleep well. Not getting enough sleep can trigger anxiety. If you’re having trouble sleeping, tonight, engage in a relaxing activity before bedtime, such as taking a warm bath, listening to soothing music or taking several deep breaths. And, if you’re like many people with anxiety whose brains start buzzing right before bed, jot down your worries earlier in the day for 10 to 15 minutes, or try a mental exercise like thinking of fruits with the same letter. 4. Challenge an anxious thought. “We all have moments wherein we unintentionally increase or maintain our own worry by thinking unhelpful thoughts. These thoughts are often unrealistic, inaccurate, or, to some extent, unreasonable,” Thankfully, we can change these thoughts. The first step is to identify them. Consider how a specific thought affects your feelings and behaviours. Is it helpful or unhelpful? These are the types of thoughts you want to challenge. Therefore it is suggested asking yourself: “Is this worry realistic?” “Is this really likely to happen?” “If the worst possible outcome happens, what would be so bad about that?” “Could I handle that?” “What might I do?” “If something bad happens, what might that mean about me?” “Is this really true or does it just seem that wa Then, “reframe or correct that thought to make it more accurate, realistic and more adaptive.” Here’s one example: “I would feel embarrassed if I tripped on the stage, but that’s just a feeling; it wouldn’t last forever, and I would get through it.” 5. Say an encouraging statement. Positive, accurate statements can help to put things into perspective. See these examples: “Anxiety is just a feeling, like any other feeling.” and “This feels bad, but I can use some strategies to [cope with] it.” 6. Stay connected to others. “Social support is vital to managing stress,” Today, call a loved one, schedule a Skype date or go to lunch with a close friend. “Talking with others can do a world of good.” Another option is to get together and engage in an activity that improves your anxiety, such as taking a walk, sitting on the beach or going to a yoga class. 7. Avoid caffeine. Managing anxiety is as much about what you do as what you don’t do. And there are some substances that exacerbate anxiety. Caffeine is one of those substances. As said, “The last thing people with anxiety need is a substance that makes them feel more amped up, which is exactly what caffeine does.” 8. Avoid mind-altering substances. “While drugs and alcohol might help to reduce anxiety in the short term, they often do just the opposite in the long term,” Even the short-term effect can be harmful. Experts have treated countless clients whose first panic attack occurred while they were taking drugs such as marijuana, ecstasy or LSD. “Panic attacks are bad enough if you are straight and sober, so imagine how bad they are if you are high, and can’t get un-high until the drug wears off.” 9. Do something you enjoy. Engaging in enjoyable activities helps to soothe your anxiety. For instance, today, you might take a walk, listen to music or read a book, 10. Take a break. It’s also helpful to build breaks into your day. As it is said, this might be a “simple change of pace or scenery, enjoying a hobby, or switching ‘to-do’ tasks.” “Breaking from concerted effort can be refreshing.” 11. Problem-solve. It is suggested considering how you can address the stressors that are causing your anxiety. Today, make a list of these stressors and next to each one, jot down one or two solutions. 12. Pick up a book. There are many valuable resources on anxiety, which teach you effective coping skills. Some recommended are Dying of Embarrassment for people with social anxiety; The BDD Workbook for body dysmorphic disorder; The Imp of the Mind and The OCD Workbook for obsessive-compulsive disorder. It is suggested Stop Obsessing for adults with OCD (and Up and Down the Worry Hill for kids with OCD). For people with panic attacks, it is suggested Don’t Panic: Taking Control of Anxiety Attacks. For a general overview of cognitive-behavioural therapy for anxiety, 13. Engage in calming practices. “Meditation, yoga, or other calming practices can help minimize anxiety in both the short and long term.” Sign up for a yoga class or watch a yoga video online. (Curvy Yoga is a wonderful and sizes.) Meditate right now for just three minutes resource for yoga for all shapes 14. Contact a therapist. “Sometimes anxiety can be difficult to manage without professional help,” Many organizations include databases of providers who specialize in anxiety (along with helpful information).. 15. Accept your anxiety. “If you really want to effectively manage your anxiety, the key is to accept it,” This might sound counterintuitive. But anxiety, “in and of itself,” isn’t the real problem. Instead, it’s our attempts at controlling and eliminating it, he said. “Not accepting these unwanted inner experiences is the actual source of so much of our self-induced suffering.” Accepting anxiety doesn’t mean “resign[ing] ourselves to a life of anxious misery. It simply means that we are better off recognizing and fully accepting the existence of anxiety and other uncomfortable emotional states that are inevitable, but transitory,” So if you experience anxiety today, simply observe it. “Think of it like a wave of the ocean; allow it to come in, experience it, and ride it out.” Anxiety can feel overwhelming. It can feel like chains around your feet, weighing you down. But by taking small steps – like the ones above – you can minimize your anxiety and cope effectively.

You have an anger-related depression and the incidents around your family may be great contributors towards it. I suspect you are not expressing this feeling and therefore the depression. Sometimes you act your anger out with your wife and children making them hapless victims of your inability to express to the elder family members for their gross indifference towards to and your wife and kids. Procrastination is also indicative of anger not expressed. Headaches are directly related to anger. All this stress is causing acidity in your system. This is not laziness in the traditional sense but a lethargy or inertia prompted by unexpressed feelings of anger. You must do regular and vigorous exercise every day. Yoga and meditation is also good to calm you down. Force yourself to do the opposite of what your mind and body feel like doing or not doing. Depression is the only condition I recommend that you must fight with all your might. Work with a counselor and particularly learn to express your anger at home. Many years of suppressed emotions are playing havoc in your system. If none of these have the desired effect, do go to a psychiatrist and seek medical intervention to help with the depression. Whatever happens please do continue with the counseling.

I am 26 year old male. I am suffering from Depression by thinking about the past incidents/events which happened to me 3-4 years ago .I do my Yoga ,pranayama and meditation regularly but still at times I get depressed by thinking about the past incidents that happened to me ,and I end up blaming ,cursing and hating some people in my past for ruining my Life or whom I consider responsible for bad incidents that happened to me ,I have developed hatred for those people .I regret a lot about the past and mostly dwell in the past also at times I curse God about the past. I also at times find it tough to accept the present situation and reality and I always question a lot that why these things happened to me ? Also I consider myself Unlucky that those incidents happened to me. I find it difficult to live in the present and happily and I can not completely concentrate and focus on my work .And I feel I was a victim and injustice happened to me .How should I get out of this thought cycle and depression ?

The answer to your question is quite obvious but still I think it would be very useful to meet with a counselor and purge the past out of your system by talking to that person. By delving into the past it is affecting your present and future. Also, the danger I am concerned about it that you may find yourself in self-pity a lot of the time and that is extremely bad for you. You cannot change the past but you can make your present and future far better than what it is now by closing the past. Counseling will certainly help tremendously. I suspect that you are one of many who have been taking medicines but not working with a counselor in tandem. You need both counseling and medical intervention. The combination is ideal for the cure to be complete. In fact, counseling will need to go on for a long time to develop skills and techniques to cope with everyday challenges of your life. If you remain episode-free for three years at least, you can be weaned off of the medication. So I assume that for all of these many years you have been letting the medicine do all the work on your depression and very little effort from your side. This will not do at all. So please start counseling immediately. In the meantime please do the following that can be done all by yourself as you desire: You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. 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 scorching heat. 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. If you are young and you can do it with some commitment. The doctor and counselor are there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with them is very critical for your success.
