I was in depressed In many condition So please help to about my depression And discuss about stress.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

5 Ways your Pet can Relieve You from Depression

5 Ways your Pet can Relieve You from Depression

Having pets around not only makes you feel better, but also teaches you compassion, empathy and loyalty. Spending quality time with your pets tends to have a positive effect on your mood and mental health. Pets can act as great stress relievers and actually uplift your mood when are depressed.

Connecting with your pet instantly improves your mood and makes you forget your worries with their unconditional love and care. Here are 5 ways in which your pet can relieve depression and make you feel better.

1. A healthy heart: If you own a dog, you are less likely to get heart diseases. Spending time with your dog, going for walks and jogs, playing in the park, etc. will keep you active and maintain a normal blood pressure. Activities with your pets will also curb any sadness in your heart, at least for the moment. You will have a routine to follow, and this will keep you distracted from your source of depression.


2. Stress relief: Petting your pet dog, cat or rabbit will soothe your mind and help you get rid of any kind of stress. Depression causes a lot of stress, and if you hug or lay down with your dog, you are likely to feel better and get much more relieved from stress. A relaxation hormone is released by the body which brings down stress levels.

3. Pets enable you to connect socially: If you are depressed, you may feel like connecting with new people for feeling better. Your pets can help you with this. If you walk down a road with your dog, it is likely that people approach you and start a conversation with you. 

4. A better mood: If you are depressed for a long time, getting a pet dog can change your life. Pet owners are happy people and are more trustworthy than normal people. If you feel lonely and depressed, a pet dog can provide you better company and happiness than a human at times. You will have a new meaning in life and would love to take care of your pet and raise him healthy. Your general mood will be much improved.

5. Unconditional love: The best thing about pets and especially dogs is that they will love you unconditionally. No matter what you do, they will always love you the most and come to you wagging their tail. A loving touch has an incredible healing power and hugging your pets will make you happy and less depressed.

Pets are an amazing way to get relief from depression. Having a pet around makes any atmosphere much livelier. Raising a pet is like raising a child, and thus you will remain distracted and won’t have time to think about your reason for depression.

Why my husband feel totally drain out by 6 pm in the evening everyday. He is 56 years old man.
Dear, the reason could be stress. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the fight-or-flight response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as? acute stress? can be exciting? it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or chronic stress? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Dear, welcome to lybrate-user. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. There is no safe limit of alcohol consumption. Even a drop can be fatal for liver. Quit alcohol. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

Depression - How To Deal With It?

Depression - How To Deal With It?

Depression is such an ailment that may be intensely distressing and may lead to severe damage to the afflicted person and their close ones, if left without proper care and treatment. So if you are in charge of caring for patients affected with chronic depression, then it may seem challenging as well as equally rewarding. You will feel challenged when you're trying to figure out a possible solution to help the patient. Each patient is a distinct individual with varying needs contrary to the patients affected with diabetes or cardiac disorders where the treatments are properly schemed and structured.

Caring for yourself is also important-

When you are trying to deal with patients affected with depression, you will first have to properly recognize depression and anxiety. When someone you love is affected with depression, you will try your level best to help that person come out of the situation. However, note that it is also important to take care of your own mental as well as physical health. Because when you are trying to help a person come out of depression, it is likely that you too would face similar psychological distress. A recent study reported that caregivers of depressed people with bipolar disorder and severe depressive problems were more susceptible to psychological troubles than care providers of other healthcare needs like diabetes or cancer among general population. So it is really imperative to look after yourself as well.

Sticking to a well-regulated treatment plan-

Though social support is significant, it alone cannot help in suppressing depression. If you know a person encountering pangs of depression, advise him or her to seek professional assistance. Depression is such a clinical condition that requires to be dealt with medication, therapy or a balanced combination of both. You will have to make them understand that you care about them, but you alone cannot succeed in healing that person without proper medical guidance. Encourage such people to closely follow a physician’s advice and take proper medicines as recommended by the healthcare provider.

Insisting on following healthy habits-

You will have to try to encourage the patients in regulating their energies into doing something positive for both mind and body. This can be aptly done through exercise, which helps in lowering the risk of anxiety as well as depression with regular practice. This, along with the intake of a healthy balanced diet would also help them to recover faster.

While doing your bit to aid a person come out of depression, you should also take him or her to a responsive psychologist who can recommend faster methods of getting rid of depression permanently.

Intensive speech language stimulation. Any neuro motor problems must be ruled out. Seek professional help if there is absolutely no speech development yet.

5 Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1.Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2.Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3.Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5. Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal. If you are happy with these answers please click on "useful” link so that I can know my efforts are not wasted. If you want more clarifications or prescription for medicines consult me on this site to ask me directly and not in open questions session It's not easy to say exactly what causes depression and anxiety – it's different for everyone. Sometimes a difficult time in you or your mates' life can set off depression or anxiety, sometimes it's caused by a combination of things that has built up over time and sometimes, there's just no obvious cause at all.

Its very common now a days with rapid changing society the gap is increasing day by day between parents and children and this gap may be in any form like for eating ,for dress, for group of friends etc. Neither you are wrong nor she is .may be there is some fear in her mind for something but one thing which you also cannot deny that she is your real well wisher. On your part its obvious we have to make ourself as the society and people around us .what you can do is to take help of any professional so that your point of view should also convey to your mother and her fear or any type of problem which she is not able to tell you she can clarify with that person.

Dear lybrate user. Chewing food helps it to mix with saliva and the food also gets a pasty form. Saliva has many digestive components in it. Therefore chewing the food I always considered better. But, even if you do not chew enough cooked food, there may not be much difference. Our digestive system is strong enough to digest many things even without cooking. Take care.

I have stopped going to college and classes for no particular reason and prefer to stay alone in my room . Could I be depressed ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You could be, if this has been going on for a long time. You must do things with a purpose, always. Withdrawing is a serious sign of poor social development. No man is an island. We need each other, and if you are comfortable living all by yourself in your room, something is seriously wrong. Are you afraid of people to want to avoid them? Go meet a counselor immediately and discuss all the emotional experiences you are having for however long to deal with it effectively. At the age you are in, some childhood unresolved issues may be surfacing seeking a resolution. If you do not handle it now, you will carry a permanent negative trait into adulthood. Now is your last chance. I always recommend three things to be followed in life: be responsible will everything you do; be respectful always; and be functional whatever happens. You are failing in all three areas. Now, get going.

Sir I am 24 years old I suffered from ocd and memory loss what should I do and also hope less Not interested in any thing's.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Get treated, and you will show good recovery. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly.

Since the problem began to appear only recently, I think, it is not a serious one. If he has a habit of watching cartoon channels in tv, or using any other electronic gadgets for playing games, stop them immediately at any cost. And if he complains of such thoughts, just ignore them giving some funny comments without hurting him. This helps reducing anxiety associated with the problem thoughts, and also will reduce the frequency and intensity of such thoughts, if it is the case of attention seeking behaviour. Some children do like that intentionally to attract the attention of parents. If the symptom petsists even after 1month following the above modifictions, consult a paediatric psychiatrist.

More than anxiety, I think you are developing phobia and having hysterical reactions too. These are all fear based and as such if you work with a counselor to address the fear a lot can be resolved. These are examples of normal fear becoming abnormal due to the neglect of fear itself. Fear is good and is extremely useful to exercise caution where necessary. Somewhere and somehow you have been denying the fear and it has over a period of time developed into phobia. It is also possible that in childhood you may have had some traumatic experience and that has led to this abnormal response to fear today. Meet with a counselor and deal with your emotions to deal with the underlying causes. In the meantime, you can learn to de-condition yourself off of the phobia by frequenting these places with a therapist and gradually working out through the experience the various reactions that you will go through. Over time you will find that your phobia is unfounded and learn to develop normal responses to these situations. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the phobia with a calmer disposition. This will give you an undue advantage over the phobia to perhaps bring it into the normal realm of fear. That, you can then tackle with aplomb.
