My father is chewing tabacoo from long time So how can we detect if anything wrong to his health Or by which test we can do To detect any problem.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Chewing tobacco addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan. Take care.

Dear, confidence is a relative terminology. Confidence differs in relation to what you are approaching. Confidence is directly related to experience. The more your experience in any matter, the more your confidence is. Therefore, rethink. If you want confidence in approach, try approaching more and more.

Sertraline can be taken once a day only. Side effects of the medications can be googled. More common side-effects are more acidity, sleep and sexual problems. No medicine is taken for such a long duration. Consult your psychiatrist on regular basis.

Can ignorance/indifference to fear/ anxiety reduce it and one can overcome thru this technique.

MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Can ignorance/indifference to fear/ anxiety reduce it and one can overcome thru this technique.
That is a good question lybrate-user. Evidence seems to point out that negating distressful internal events actually makes them stronger. So if you are talking about ignoring or perhaps suppressing fear and anxiety, that might not work. What might help is looking at this fear and anxiety, allowing them 'to be' just like we allow and even rejoice in positive mental states like joy and happiness. The willingness to accept distressful feelings/thoughts and emotions as they are without struggling with them or desperately wishing them to go away often reduces the impact they have on us. This approach when practiced over the long term significantly changes our relationship with what we perceive as painful. When I say 'looking' it means without analysis or judgement. We 'witness' this fear and anxiety perhaps like an observer and just as every thought and emotion and feeling, they arise and then they pass. Accepting and allowing them to be helps tremendously to not get drawn into them and become overwhelmed by them. I do hope that this helps you a little bit! Wishing you well, Swarajit.

Symptoms and Treatments of Depression

MA - Clinical Psychology, P.G. Diploma in Guidance and Counseling, BA In Psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
Symptoms and Treatments of Depression

Depression, or major depressive disorder, is a mental health condition marked by an extended sense of sadness and despair that affects how a person thinks, feels and functions. It affects the way you think and brings about changes in your physical and emotional self. In severe cases, depression makes it extremely difficult for you in carrying out your daily activities. Yes, the condition may significantly interfere with a person's daily life and may prompt thoughts of suicide. There is no instant cure for this disorder; rather it requires a more long term approach to treat this disease.

Symptoms-

The symptoms of depression are:

  1. Feeling of emptiness and sadness.

  2. Violent outbursts of anger.

  3. Disturbances in sleep patterns, resulting in insomnia in few cases.

  4. Constant tiredness and fatigue.

  5. Constantly agitated and anxious.

  6. Drastic changes in your appetite (usually appetite decreases).

  7. Physical problems such as headache and back pain.

  8. Constant feeling of worthlessness and guilt.

  9. Recurrent thoughts of suicide and violence.

Causes-

Although scientists agree that depression is a brain disorder, the debate continues about exact causes. Many factors may contribute to the onset of depression, including genetic characteristics, changes in hormone levels, certain medical illnesses, stress, grief, or substance abuse. Any of these factors alone or in combination can bring about the specific changes in brain chemistry that lead to the many symptoms of depression, bipolar disorder and related conditions.

Treatments-

  1. Psychological counselling and medications are the preferred treatment alternatives for depression. The medications that are used to treat depression are antidepressants and serotonin reuptake inhibitors. It is important to consult a psychologist before opting for any treatment procedure. The doctor will carry out a thorough diagnosis and then prescribe treatment accordingly.

  2. Psychotherapy is another treatment process that is used to treat depression; this involves you talking about your condition to a doctor. It can help you find better and feasible ways to find solutions to problems and set realistic goals in life.

  3. Electroconvulsive therapy is another mode of treatment that uses electric currents to modify the functioning of the neurotransmitters.

Hello, we all know when we lose some one close we feel sad, depressed, we are looking for answers, are unable to understand, and deal with the loss, but if this has lasted for more six months you should seek help of a psychiatrist. I can understand it is personal and you may not be inclined to talk to a stranger, but let me remind you that is why they are professionals and they know how to seperate personal from professional. Don't fear of being judged that this person can't handle a loss. Because that will NOT happen. We are there to help you. That is our job. Hope this helped .do let me know. Don't forget the loss is only physical, No one can take away the beautiful memories, the time spent, the conversation and the togetherness you felt. All that is yours and only yours to keep. Honor the person by celebrating the life that they lived and that is what they should be remembered for. And I am sure your loved one will not have wanted you to suffer because of them. So if not for you do it for that person.

What kind of pill would be best for a severe stress, anxiety level and also help with depression?
Moreover these pills have numerous side effects. Counseling will help you to learn tips and techniques to manage and cope with stressful situations. It is how we perceive a situation which makes us feel stress and tension. Counselling will help you to modify your perception and look for workable solutions. Please add daily exercise, yoga, meditation and healthy food to your daily routine.
