Presently I have a new friend now I am daily chatting with her, in my dreams also I am thinking about her, so please give a suggestion to get out of her thoughts.

You do not need to forget her. Once you start trying to forget her, you will feel the thoughts about her only increase in frequency and volume that may lead you to many psychological problems. Instead, keep in touch with her as a friend, at the same time, try to focus and spend more time on your studies or career planning. If you are strong enough to balance both, you will be the real life hero. Wish you a successful career life.

I feel really depressed about every small thing and have been prone to crying for every little thing that goes wrong. I do not feel right about anything and can not sleep either. Whenever I sleep I sometimes loose my breath and sometimes experience voices behind me. I can not make decisions properly and i'm able to concentrate or understand anything. What is happening to me?
You need to consult any professional for proper diagnosis and reason of your problem.in the meantime you can try few things which will help you. Take proper sleep of 7-8 hours try to avoid sleep at day time. Its in our hand to be happy what it requires is slightly change in your approach ,stop thinking that something is wrong with me I am not well make yourself as much busy as you can so that you don't get time to think on all this. And its everyone's right is to be happy we cannot change the thinking of people or situation around us but we can get the things or reasons which make us happy, what we can do is to live every second of life, what do you want to be, what do you want to eat, to do, your career, your friends, your likings etc. Develop some hobby, make some good friends, make yourself busy, as much you will think you will get frustrate and will gain nothing, live only for yourself, and this can be possible when you will involve yourself in some other things ,the main concept is that make yourself as much busy as you can so that you don't get free time to think on this. First start from joining any hobby class and make any good friend with whom you can share everything ,do some yoga and meditation, expand your social circle. Take care.

I am feeling depressed, mood swings and extreme anger since from two days .recently I came for diwali vacation from mumbai to my hometown .last years I had some big fight with my brother and he bitten me. That I can't forget till now. So when I saw him home I loosed my temper and started acting differently which I never did since I had fight with him. I am facing mood swings with my closed once .what should I do?
lybrate-user, Whatever happened, can't forget but you will have to forget to overcome your depression and mood swings. So many incidents happen between brother and sister, but for this special relationship you just directly talk to your brother. After this you will feel relax and forget every problem.

Asked for male, 39 years old from Durg
Respected sir, I have developed cluster phobia recently. Unable to travel in flight and AC compartment of train for long distance. I suddenly got anxiety attack. Do you have any medicine in homeopathic/allopathy that can cure me. I was a smoker from past 15 years. I did a tried to quit also. Kindly guide me. I have to travel again tomorrow. Thank you.
Dear lybrate-user, They are specific phobias. They are treated by cognitive behaviour therapy or systematic desensitisation. They need many sessions over 5-6 months time. For tomorrow's travel, it can not be done. You can try with short acting anxiolytics temporarily. Please try to stop smoking at the earliest. It has many health benefits in the long run. When you stop suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms like restlessness, irritability, lack of concentration, increased hunger, sleep disturbance, headache, impatience, anxiety, depression, etc. If you have them please donât get back to smoking, take nicotine gum or lozenge or patch. They are available in all medical shops. You donât need a prescription from doctors. Use 2 mg gum if you smoke less than 25 cigarettes/day. Use 4 mg gum if you smoke more than 25 cigarettes/day. First 6 weeks, use 1 gum every 1 â 2 hours. Reduce it in week 7 â 9 to one gum every 2 â 4 hours. In week 10 â 12, reduce it further to 1 gum every 4 -8 hours. By 3 months, you will be able to stop both cigarettes and gum fully without any withdrawal symptoms. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. Smoking is a chronic relapsing condition like diabetes and B.P. So please donât worry if you restart smoking. Start all over again to stop. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like smoking friends, along with alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will like a passing cloud.

Hi sir/mam, My Friend is 20 years old. She's currently studying but her conservative parents don't support her. They are constantly trying to limit her in any and every way. She feels trapped and like she has no life (from what she's told me). She's depressed and sometimes talk about taking her life but says she won't do it. She refused to go to a psychiatrist. Please suggest what should I do?

Dear Consistent sadness and self harming thoughts are dangerous and may be sign of underlying depression. U cn consult some psychiatrist online giving detailed overview of her symptoms. So proper therapy or treatment cn be planned Regards.
