Seeing your parents fighting would have left you insecure and fearful. Your trust in people and relationships has not developed because you haven't seen your parents modelling it for you. Yet it's not the end of the world. You can stay in your city and still work towards building your life and relationships. Try to remember those times when you did have a friend or cared for someone even briefly. Even if there were very few people who you cared for but still you did it. Inside the lonely person there is a gentle and beautiful person who wants to love and be loved. Nurture that part of you and let it grow. You will start living your life again. Change your counsellor if the other one didn't help you.

Dear memory and mind power consists of understanding, storing and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Post a private question to me and I shall provide you more tips. Take care.

To achieve the best results, medication should be taken in the right dose for the prescribed period of time. One of the causes of early relapse or incomplete recovery is that patients tend to stop medication on their own without consulting the doctor as they feel better. I suggest you consult a psychiatrist for a detailed assessment and take medication as prescribed with regular follow ups. Having a previous history of depression makes you more vulnerable to the severity of the illness, so please do not ignore it. Depression is not something that will 'go away on its own' or 'get better with positive thinking' Like diabetes or hypertension it is an illness that requires urgent attention.

How can one know if he is suffering from depression?

Dear, depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behavior, feelings and sense of well-being. People with depressed mood can feel sad, anxious, empty, hopeless, helpless, worthless, guilty, irritable, ashamed or restless. They may lose interest in activities that were once pleasurable, experience loss of appetite or overeating, have problems concentrating, remembering details or making decisions, and may contemplate, attempt or commit suicide. Insomnia, excessive sleeping, fatigue, aches, pains, digestive problems or reduced energy may also be present. Depression is usually treated with a combination of medicines, psychotherapy, exercise and meditation. Depression is manageable with all these steps. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should help manage depression. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

What should I do to avoid depression?

What should I do to avoid depression?
Are you trying to preempt depression or do you already have depression and want out of it? I am assuming it is the latter. You must go for counseling and if that person recommends medication you must visit a doctor. Whatever happens do not discontinue the counseling.You can follow these simple rules: Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. 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, 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 scotching 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, 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. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.

Tips on communicating with a child with autism when speaking to your child, come to their level so you are not talking down to them. Use short sentences and constantly comment on what you or your child is doing to continually expose them to language. Avoid repeatedly asking questions as this can be difficult and frustrating for your child. For children who have trouble with speech and language, encourage the use of visual aides, such as pecs and picture schedules, for communication. Using signs is also an excellent option for some children with autism. Children with autism are often better at visual and detail-oriented tasks such as puzzles, for example. It is important to encourage their strengths and provide them with outlets for their interests and hobbies. There are some day care centres run by ngo for autism children but usually they are near metropolitan city. Please consult your therapist for medical problems.

8 Guidelines for a Happy Relationship

Ask Free Question
No matter which kind of relationship couple are in, they always have some issues and look to be happier, and more connected, though the issues can be different for different couples - money, sex, infidelity, in-laws, children etc. Despite this, any relationship is completely subjective and no clear cut rules can be executed on it. Yet, following certain guidelines may help proceed happily in a relationship.

1.Love yourself

You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy. Accepting yourself fully as you are and showing yourself this same unconditional love will provide protection, healing, and confidence to work on your shortfalls.

2.Adopt a positive lifestyle

There are many different ways in which you can embrace a more positive lifestyle - practice affirmations, express gratitude, meditation, exercise. Just find something that helps you unwind and enjoy life. And most importantly - keep doing these things.

3.Empathize with your partner

The ability to empathize is what inhibits us from just going through life doing whatever we want, without regard for others. It is what makes a compromise in a relationship possible. If you realize that something you've done has hurt another person and you can empathize with his/her pain or unhappiness, you will hesitate to do that again.

4. Take responsibility: Don't try to figure out who's right

When couples come for therapy, one or both tend to think that the primary problem is their partner. Both people co-create the climate of the relationship. And both need to do some things differently to create the marriage or relationship they both really want. If your intention is to create a more positive world for yourself and those around you, it's up to you to have the thoughts, moods, and actions that will create that world.

5. Stay connected

When there is distress in the marriage or relationship, one or both usually feel some emotional disconnection. Frequently, sexual passion diminishes as well. (However, sometimes one partner will try to increase frequency of sex in an effort to feel connected). And often, people will busy themselves with work or kids instead, or do other things to either try to feel connected or to avoid being alone with the person with whom they feel the pain of disconnection.

6. Express thoughts, feelings, and wishes

Resentment can build when couples sweep things under the rug, so be vulnerable and don't bury negative feelings, but try to express them in a respectful way. Opening up to your partner can make you feel vulnerable and exposed, but it is the most important part of an intimate relationship.

7. Try new things together

Boredom can be a major obstacle to lasting romantic or companionate love. Psychological research has suggested that couples who experience the most intense love are the ones who enjoy participating in new or challenging 'self-expanding' activities together.

8. Preserve your independence

Neediness and caretaking in long-term partnerships -- which can easily result from looking to the partnership for safety, security and stability -- damper the erotic spark. But if couples can maintain independence and witness each other participating in individual activities at which they're skilled, they can continue to see their partner in an ever-new light.

Nobody is worth dying for unless you were in the act of saving them. You may give your heart to somebody, even your mind, but never give your life for someone. Learn to accept that she does not want you for some reason or the other. You don?t want a girl who has been coerced into the relationship!It does not mean anyway that you are a bad person, a useless person, or of a questionable character. If you are any of these, then you have reason enough to work on those issues and get to become a better person. In love strange things happen, and strange bedfellows come together defying all reason. So you never know who is going to come around and love you to bits: that is the kind of person you want and need to hook up with. Look at the reasons why this relationship failed, and if there are many reasons pointing at you, learn to change them for yourself. This is an episodal depression i.E. It was stimulated by an event. When you deal with the event, all things will come to square one. Go talk to a counselor and express all your feelings and identify what went wrong and what you can do about it for future relations.

Losing memory means you are not attentive while doing a certain job. Pay attention to what you do. Keep your mind active and stay positive. Give some work to your brain by playing memory games, puzzles, crosswords, finding the difference and so on. Your effort is also necessary.

A medical doctor will perhaps answer your problem regarding meningitis. I am going to touch on an emotional angle to all the problems you have mentioned. Her headaches, depression and fever have a strong basis originating from unexpressed anger. I am also aware that these can be caused by meningitis too but as mentioned I am showing an emotional perspective to it. It is therefore interesting that you do mention that she has a problem with getting easily angry and does get into depression, which is also anger related in my opinion. So apart from following the medical approach, do meet with a counselor and discuss her anger issues and where it has originated from. Perhaps there may be some information from her past either from her parents or from her own knowledge. It could be quite deep rooted and therapy must delve deeply too to get to the bottom of this residual anger until it is expressed, appropriately. The anger may be such that she may not feel like expressing it and therefore she has chosen to keep it under wraps. Any feeling that is suppressed will find a way of expressing itself internally and causing a lot of distress including headaches, fever, and depression. It may be useful to read a book by an author called Louise L. Hay, entitled, ?You can heal your life? to understand how emotions that have not been dealt with can disturb your life, and also how to go about healing the same.
