Hello Doctor, I'm 43 years old since 7 months I am taking 90 ml to 180 ml of whisky daily due to some financial issue. Please advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You see this is exactly the problem: when you have a financial issue you are spending more to drink than to save! this level of drinking can only drown your misery but do nothing to solve it. Therefore, the issue is not getting resolved but your finances will get drained and you will feel more miserable. In fact, you need to do more to earn the money or to reduce expenditure, at least. Please quit and do it now. As time goes by, you will start drinking more because nothing is happening to sort out your issues. You need to be responsible, be respectful, and be functional always. In line with that, it is advisable to quit alcohol and do something responsible instead. The set up is for you to become an alcoholic gradually and you will not know when that happens or when it becomes too late to turn the clock back.

Depression In Children - Causes And Symptoms

MD - Paediatrics, MBBS, FISPN & FISPN - Pediatric Nephrology
Pediatrician, Delhi
Depression In Children - Causes And Symptoms

Depression in children is not a very uncommon phenomenon. But if the feeling of sadness persists over a period of time with little or no change to their behavior, then it can be seen as a symptom of depression. Children who are suffering from depression need immediate and utmost care as negligence may cause severe long term effects on the child. Read on to find more about them.

Symptoms that indicate childhood depression vary. Some of the different symptoms which indicate depression are:

  1. Social withdrawal
  2. Irritability
  3. Feeling of worthlessness
  4. Difficulty in concentrating
  5. Reduced ability to function during events
  6. Continuous feelings of sadness
  7. Physical complaints

Causes:

  1. Depression in children can be caused due to the combination of a multitude of reasons.
  2. Children from a family history of depression are more likely to be suffering from depression.
  3. Similarly if the parents suffer from depression then it is more than likely that the child will also suffer from depression.
  4. Children from conflicted families or children and teens who are prone to substance or alcohol abuse can suffer from depression.
  5. Reasons such as physical health, environment, genetic vulnerability or biochemical disturbance can lead to depression.

Treatment:

The treatment process of depression in children is similar to that of adults and can be treated with psychotherapy and medication. If your child is depressed consult a Pediatrician who after his or her diagnosis may refer you to a psychiatrist. The medical specialist will recommend psychotherapy or medication. In some instances, a child suffering from depression may be suicidal. Parents are advised to be vigilant and observe certain behavioral changes that the child may have adapted to or suddenly switched to. Some of the signs are mentioned below:

  1. Changes in eating, sleeping or activities
  2. Isolating oneself even from family
  3. Talking of suicide, feeling helpless or hopeless
  4. Increased risk taking behavior
  5. Substance abuse
  6. Giving away possessions

Psychotherapy or antidepressant medication use is usually depending on the predominant symptoms and the severity of depression. The best results often result from a combination of prescribed medication along with multiple sessions of psychotherapy. We must understand that depression is just another disease with is treatable like any other illness so do not hesitate in seeking professional help. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pediatrician.

Your sexual attraction towards other males is not because of your thought process. It is probably because of your sexual inclination, or some childhood experience and it is your physical need. I can imagine that you are not comfortable accepting this fact. Actually, to find out whether you are gay or heterosexual, it is advisable to talk to a counsellor or a sexologist. Some encounters with males in you childhood does not make you gay, but now how you feel matters more. So please consult a counsellor or a sexologist. Till then do not get married, because you will not be happy in heterosexual marriage if you are gay. If in spite of knowing that you are getting attracted to males if you marry a girl, you will have trouble when she will find out. Once your sexuality is understood by you, you are likely to get rid you your depression and anxiety.

I am a student. In winter Why Won't My Cold Go Away? I tried to keep healthy. Never SMOKED. What should I do.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi. Take homoeopathic medicine - Schwabe's Alpha-NC and Alpha-CF - both thrice daily for 4 days. Use Bakson's Nasal-Aid spray/ 1-2 sprays after every 4 hours. Management: - Avoid cold drinks and fried food, take healthy food. -Avoid exposure to Air-conditioner or cold air. -Take steam-inhalation once before going to bed. -Take enough sleep and rest. Tto build up a strong immunity, you need to alter few changes in your daily routine. If you don't have any underlying medical condition, you can follow the below points for healthy living. The diet plays an important role in making our immune system stronger: 1.Get enough protein. You can get protein from meat, dairy, eggs and vegetables. 2.Avoid saturated fats, but eat plenty of unsaturated fats. These "good fats" are found in corn, sesame, safflower, soybean, and cottonseed oils. 3.Eat limited amounts of carbohydrates. Consuming appropriate amounts of wheat, corn, and cereals helps to create the energy required for the body to produce white blood cells. 4.There are a number of particular foods that can help to boost-up your immunity. These include: Garlic, Almonds, Kale, Navy beans, Reishi mushrooms, Blueberries and raspberries, Yogurt, Green, Matcha, and Tulsi teas. 4.Eat antioxidants. Antioxidants are vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that help repair damaged cells in the body. Examples of antioxidants are Beta Carotene (apricots, broccoli, beets, spinach, green peppers, tomatoes, corn, and carrots), Vitamins C ( berries, broccoli, nectarines, oranges, strawberries, bell peppers, tomatoes, and cauliflower) and E (broccoli, carrots, nuts, papaya, spinach, and sunflower seeds), Zinc (oysters, red meat, beans, nuts, and seafood), and Selenium. 5.Vitamin A is also an antioxidant, and helps your immune system to function more efficiently. In addition to supplements, you can get vitamin A from carrots, tomatoes, chilis, and squash. 6.Echinacea, ginseng, aloe vera, and green tea are all said to boost your white blood cell count. 7.Exercise regularly. Getting enough exercise improves your cardiovascular health, and greatly reduces the likelihood of certain chronic diseases.. Exercise increases the flow of blood through different parts of the body, and it increases the body's excretion of harmful metabolites, helping your immune system function properly. So run, bike, swim, walk -- whatever gets you moving! 8.Stop smoking and Limit alcohol consumption. 9.You should drink 8 glasses of water every day. 10.Sufficient deep sleep also helps the cells replenish and regenerate and is therefore necessary if you want to maintain a healthy immune system. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Alpha-WD/ twice daily for 1month.

I love her but she has died. Now at that instant I feel alone without her can you tell me what I have to do.

I love her but she has died. Now at that instant I feel alone without her can you tell me what I have to do.
We all know it is a really tough time when somebody close to you has died. It's important that you know how to move on with your life. It may seem difficult at first, like you're never going to stop missing them, but you have to move on. It's essential. For some people, the grieving process will last a couple weeks. For others, it will take years. Don't allow others to tell you to feel a certain way. It's okay to be angry, sad, or despaired. However, it's also okay to feel happy, and to let go when you're ready. Get support. Even if you are not the type of person who normally shares their feelings, it is important to recognize that opening up is not a sign of weakness. Talking to others will help you heal by easing your emotional burden. Talk to your friends and family. They will probably want to help you, but they may not know how. Let them know what you need. It's okay to have alone time, but do not shut people who love you out. Turn to your faith. If you're religious, draw comfort from praying, meditation, or other rituals. Talk to people in your religious community for support. Establish new routines. The death of a loved one will bring about many new responsibilities. In addition, the old day to day tasks will change emotionally. It may be beneficial to eat dinner at a different time, shop at a different grocery store, or take a different route to work. However, you should avoid making any life-altering decisions (i.e. moving or changing jobs) directly after your loved one has died. You do not need this added stress. Accept your feelings. While you may think that you can outrun grief, you can't hide from it forever, and postponing it may lead to mental and physical health problems. The best way to move past it is to accept that it's there. Express your feelings in a way that helps you, be it writing in a journal, getting involved in an organization, or making a scrapbook. Look after yourself physically. While emotional reactions are expected after a death, there are also physical symptoms to grief. Loss of appetite, nausea and stomach pain, intestinal upset, and sleep disturbances/loss of energy often present themselves when someone is experiencing grief. By taking care of your body, you will also help heal your mind. Do your best to get enough sleep and eat right. Exercise is a good way to help increase your ability to sleep and eat. In addition, it causes your body to produce endorphins, which will help lift your mood. Avoid using drugs or alcohol to "numb the pain." The pain will eventually wane, but it is important to realize that this takes time. Do not get frustrated with yourself if it takes longer than you want it to.

Dear lybrate user, if you wish to lose weight, you need to modify you lifestyle and food habits. If health is important for you, then please find out some time slot in your tight schedule which you can devote to either yoga, jogging, cycling or going to the gym. It may appear difficult to find time for this, but you need to somehow find time for this. May be get up earlier than your usual time or work out at night. Once you start your physical exercise, you will realize that it will help you in losing weight and at the same time it acts as a stress buster. It is very important to have healthy food and on time. If home food is not possible find out some other options like getting tiffin delivered at office from online catering services or any mess or find a place near your office where you will get a square meal. You may also consult a nutritionist.

Too kind hearted, he loves me so much even after my so much restrictions he never question me. WHY' like why I am not allow him to do so. He just obey my opinion my wish. He leave his all friends in girls ka becoz of me. Sometimes I curse myself that is becoz of me he is alone. He left his social circle his friends in girls jz because of me I think that I am responsible for his loneliness and spoil his life n even don't allow him to enjoy his college life with friends n social circle. M very fed up from myself. He is suffering due to my suspicious nature. N jz bcoz I would not have any problem any insecurity any stress he leaves everyone. Mostly boys don't do that. Bt he did.

I presume your insecurity is due to assumptions and not based on factual evidence. Also you identify your life based on this relationship. That is like giving up on yourself. Please know that you are the most important person in your life. Your growth intellectually, emotively, physically and financially is based on your efforts. A relationship is an attempt such that this self growth in both people can be empowering. In case you forget your own growth it is not possible. Growth comes from you. The ability to use it for others comes from relationship. If you get obsessed with a relationship there is no time and energy for growth of self. Thus, you will only bother about the irrelevant and superficial needs. Finally this results in priorities being skewed. Thus years will pass with this behaviour. Your maturity intellectual growth get affected and you remain and immature person identifying with a relationship. Important: focus on your growth. Every thing else will fall into place.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

How to reduce negativity and imbibe positive thinking

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
How to reduce negativity and imbibe positive thinking
How to reduce negativity and imbibe positive thinking

These are some basic steps that many of us know but forget to think when in emotional distress sometimes. I am collating that for a quick recap.

Thoughts constitute an important part of one’s life. Those thoughts can be favourable or unfavourable. For a few people, those thoughts are unfavourable most of the times. They often keep thinking about the negative outcomes of a work. Their friends and people around them who keep hearing the same will also start wondering if that work can ever be successful. To come out of such situations, it is better to follow a few basic steps.

1. Do not speculate that that something might happen and start looking at the facts. Never come to a conclusion without any proof.

2. If an untoward incident happened in the past, don’t think that it will repeat itself again. For example if you have failed in an exam, it doesn’t mean that you will fail in every aspect of life.

3. Stop worrying about what is not happening and start focussing about what is happening. Many of us have faults in our thought process. Because of that, we tend to forget about the favourable incidents happening and only worry about those that didn’t happen.

4. Don’t spiral any incident out of control. For instance, if you call a friend and if she didn’t answer it, it doesn’t mean for sure that she is not interested in talking to you. If you are thinking like that, it means that you are also worried about petty issues. Inculcate patience. Just leave a message to your friend and forget that incident and start looking at what other better activities to do.

5. Lot of people keep saying that they are not intelligent and that they are not fit for anything. If you think like that, your results will also become the same. So, stop thinking like that and perhaps start thinking that you have some weaknesses and you have other strengths that will make you fit for several other activities. There are no 100% bad or 100% good people in the world. Don’t speculate forever about what your weaknesses are and talk to people around you to understand what they think about you.

6. Emotional thinking in negative circumstances can lead to lowering your self confidence. Instead of generalising that you are unfit, it is perhaps that you are unfit for a certain task or at a certain time only.

7. When problems occur in one’s family, you may think that you are the reason. Instead of blaming yourself, look for a solution and solve the problem. With the outcome, you will feel better.

8. When you hear remarks from someone, do not treat it as untoward attitude towards you. Everyone makes mistakes and you have committed a mistake which is not an anomaly. All that you have to do is to learn from the mistakes and try to not repeat such mistakes in future. It will not help to reminisce about the mistake forever.

It is highly important to realise negativity. Immediately after, think comprehensively about the issue analysing the facts and try to mitigate your negative thoughts. Try to talk to a friend or a family member or a counsellor to help you reduce such ill thoughts.

Dear lybrate user. Memory and mind power depends on three important factors. They are understanding, retention and recollection. Your brain stores information according what you perceive and it also depends on past experience. Understanding is the key. the more better understand, the more better will be the storage and retention. Once the brain retain it properly and stores in someplace where it can be retrieved easily, the more easy for it to recollect. So the basic step in remembrance is understanding. Make sure you understand whatever you study. There are "effective learning techniques" to help you. Physical exercise, outdoor games, indoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc also play an important part in improving brain power. Include green leafy vegetables, fruits, nuts etc in your daily diet. Make sure to play brain games like sudoku atleast once in a week. All the above, together, contributes to keep your brain sharp and healthy. Take care.

Drink lots of water. Wait for 3-4 days and it should settle down. These kind of effects are seen in the initial few days of taking bupropion. In the unlikely event that the problems continue beyond a week, a change of medications may be needed.
