I feel depressed from past few weeks my relation with my family are not at all good I even tried twice to cut my wrist and suicide but it was too hurting that I was not able to go through such pain still I feel like killing my self I do not want to live. Is there any way easy to suicide because each second of my life is becoming miserable and is there any medicine to kill yourself easily?

Hi lybrate-user, this is a very wrong platform for asking ways for suicide, we are in medical profession our job is to save lives and help people. Apart from that, I feel there is no stress in life which leads you to suicide there are always option just have the courage to opt for it. Suicide is not solution its inviting more and more trouble. Do one thing consult a psychologist and discuss your stress you will surely be able to deal with the stress in a much better way you can consult me for same. Please do asap, each life is important for us. All the best.

Breakups are always very painful and often lead to a negative state of being. one feel rejected and self esteem suffers. This point of time you need to try certain activities. 1. try to accept that this has happened nd gone, pen out feelings nd realease it completely or talk it out with one you trust. 2. try not to sit alone for long. 3. visit new places and try making new memories for yourself. 4. join some health club, this will help you to connect with your own body. 5. join some sports of your interest or a hobby you forgot long back..this bring the self esteem back. 6. get in touch with your friends, this helps you give a broader view of situation. 7. go out with or spend some time with family...it is a shock absorber. 8. lndulge in new learning, a course of your choice. 9. Try to be a little help at home. 10. if still you feel stuck, seek professional help. psychotherapy can help miraculously. take care and stay blessed.

Hai. I use to smoke for 8 years. I smoke nearly 8 to 10 cigarettes per day. Now I am in mode to quit smoking, but I am replacing with e-cigarette nicotine level 16mg. I would like know is e-cigarette also harmful like normal cigarette?

While e-cigarettes are often promoted as safer alternatives to traditional cigarettes, which deliver nicotine by burning tobacco, little is actually known yet about the health risks of using these devices. How do e-cigarettes work? most e-cigarettes consist of three different components, including: a cartridge, which holds a liquid solution containing varying amounts of nicotine, flavorings, and other chemicals a heating device (vaporizer) a power source (usually a battery) in many e-cigarettes, puffing activates the battery-powered heating device, which vaporizes the liquid in the cartridge. The resulting aerosol or vapor is then inhaled (called" vaping"). Are e-cigarettes safer than conventional cigarettes? unfortunately, this question is difficult to answer because insufficient information is available on these new products. Cigarette smoking remains the leading preventable cause of sickness and mortality, responsible for over 400, 000 deaths in the united states each year. The worst health consequences associated with smoking (e. G. Cancer and heart disease) are linked to inhalation of tar and other chemicals produced by tobacco combustion; the pleasurable, reinforcing, and addictive properties of smoking are produced mostly by the nicotine contained in tobacco. E-cigarettes are designed to simulate the act of tobacco smoking by producing an appealingly flavored aerosol that looks and feels like tobacco smoke and delivers nicotine but with less of the toxic chemicals produced by burning tobacco leaves. Because they deliver nicotine without burning tobacco, e-cigarettes appear as if they may be a safer, less toxic alternative to conventional cigarettes although they do not produce tobacco smoke, e-cigarettes still contain nicotine and other potentially harmful chemicals. Nicotine is a highly addictive drug, and recent research suggests nicotine exposure may also prime the brain to become addicted to other substances. Also, testing of some e-cigarette products found the vapor to contain known carcinogens and toxic chemicals (such as formaldehyde and acetaldehyde), as well as potentially toxic metal nanoparticles from the vaporizing mechanism. The health consequences of repeated exposure to these chemicals are not yet clear. Another worry is the refillable cartridges used by some e-cigarettes. Users may expose themselves to potentially toxic levels of nicotine when refilling them. Cartridges could also be filled with substances other than nicotine, thus possibly serving as a new and potentially dangerous way to deliver other drugs.

Hello. I want to talk about a complicated situation going in my life. And it's making me insane. I'm 22 years old student. Till 12th boards. I was quite serious about my career. And I'm still. Really want to achieve. And want to be working girl. But after 12 I took and really worked hard for a national level college. Though I could not got that but still it was my choice not to go for other that was good enough but out of state. I wanted to be stay in my own city which I really where are all my friends as well my bf. After a lot of fight I took architecture instead engineering I thought it would be great for me and everyone was against it. But I won and my college began. 1 year was okay. I mean not great. I mean I was just an average girl with hi-fi thinking. And 2 year my attendance was becoming short day by day. I started thinking I don't deserve I want something else. Once my attendance was very short in 3 year. I got so scared that what would everyone will ask about my attendance. And so on and what will I tell to my class teacher and friends. I got really scared and stopped going to classes and did not attend the exams as well. Everyone of my batch will graduate next year. I don't know what should I do? I mean what I'm suppose to do? I cannot talk to my friends or my family relatives. That's why I'm very scared. I wanted to an ias. And it was my dream since I was in 9th std. And now I don't know what to do. Sometimes I think I should die just end my life instead of wasting everyone's money hope and time. And frankly I can't tell or talk to anyone. The only thing I'm worried about is my career studies and graduation. Please help me.

Dear lybrate user Neha, ups and downs are part of life and we cannot control it what we can control is to give proper direction to our life when there is will there is way.i want to give few suggestions please have a little faith in me what i am suggesting .first of all think only about yourself don't think about what others are thinking about you if you will acheive something good in future every one will follow your path.i am giving one example" once there was boy ,his father and horse ,they were going somewhere when both son and father were riding the horse people said how cruel they are ,then son started to walk and father was on horse then people said that how cruel the father is ,he is on horse and son is walking ,then son was on horse then people said how cruel is son,then both son and father started to walk then people said how foolish they are.the moral of the story is that if you will consider what people are thinking and saying then you will deviate from your goal .you want to be an ias you can start from now also its never too late as your age is 22 and maximum age to appear in ias exam is 32 so no issue with age.you can see many example of girls who were average students but qualified ias exam.what actually need is your determination and hard work so start from today.even god help those who help themselves.good luck.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The duty of the mind is to think. Once you sit at homemand do nothing and let the mind free, naturally it will wander around negative territories. Therefore, I suggest not to sit idle. Engage in education, physicalmactiv7ties, oitdoor and indoor games, entertainment, socialization etc. Creative and busy mind do not wander into negative territory. Take care.

I have lost my job last month then onwards feeling very depressed. So I need your help to get out off it.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
Loosing a job could be stressful. You are young and still in the beginning of your career. I am sure you will find another and perhaps more appropriate work. Feeling low when we loose something is a normal process. That is how we heal our self. At the same time life is full of stress. And it is very helpful for long run to develop resilience, which not only help you cop with tough situation but also help you think and act calmly and maturely and save you from some troubles. Please try following - it will surely help you in a long run. If you have something very specific and you need to talk then you may call me. Chronic stress is a side product of our life style these days. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relieve stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white flour in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

MA - Psychology

Dear lybrate-user, I understand your deep wound and your inability to become social again. What has happened is of course unfortunate and unforeseen but you will agree with me that many a times, we cannot control the circumstances/situation around us. A failure is just a temporary bruise over your body, not a permanent tattoo! Stop digging the bruise further or it shall become deep. One failure doesn't mean it is the end of the world; one failure doesn't mean that you will never become a mother again! But your negative attitude and depressed feelings might come in the way of you becoming a mother again. I know it is easier said than done; but you need to bounce back ASAP, take care of your health, be positive and restart the planning process. Come to terms with reality, accept what has happened and dwell in future possibilities. Time is a Healer. Remember, you haven't failed; but you will fail IF you stop trying!

1.Give yourself time and understand that this too shall pass. These words might be difficult for you to swallow, and maybe even sound insensitive. Breaking up is tough, even if you're the one that left the relationship. But it's important to acknowledge that life goes on and that the pain you are feeling is a natural part of the human heartbreak and the healing process. • Each person takes a different amount of time to process strong emotions. Respect the time you may need to process this emotional change. • Though healing is an individual process, some studies assert it may take you up to 11 weeks before you finally feel free of the potent emotions associated with your romance. 2.Start a new project or take up a hobby. Even if you aren't particularly talented at it, the distraction provided by something new will help you turn your thoughts from your ex. Now that you're out of that relationship, it's time for you to rediscover what makes you happy and do it. • Exercise and enjoy associated mood boosting benefits. • Use art as therapy, which may be especially helpful if you are still uncomfortable expressing your feelings in words. • Raise a pet or plant, as having a living thing depend on you can lessen your feelings of depression. 3.Learn to distinguish between the imagined and the actual. Sometimes, post breakup, it can be easy for you to only think of your past lover in a way that is more perfect than is possible. Try to identify where you've allowed yourself to believe something unrealistic, like when you tell yourself that you'll never find love again. • Think about your ex in terms of the positive, past tense feelings you used to have. Separating what was from what is can change your negative feelings for the better. 4.Hold no resentment. Despite everything that's happened, bring yourself to truly forgive your ex. If possible, go up to the person and tell him/her that you have been deeply hurt, but you forgive them for any negatives, both those perceived and real. This will help you to let go, and relieve you from the cycle of negative emotions so common in breakups. 5.Use your logic to beat the blues. If your ex wasn't the best partner, getting over the breakup should be easier. Even though you might be hesitant to tarnish the good memories you hold precious, it can help you to focus on the healthier place you are in. In what ways can you now grow now that you are out of your relationship? Looking toward these can go a long way toward helping you feel better. • In the event you ex is genuinely a good person, be happy that you had the opportunity to meet. Remember that everyone that comes into our lives can be a potential teacher. 6.Keep the faith. It's easy to become bitter or fall into negative patterns, but remember, that will not make you happier. Allowing yourself to feel your feelings does not mean becoming a slave to them. Reexamine your personal philosophy. Are you the sort of person who gives in to negativity? Will you allow your ex to exert this emotional control over you even after your breakup? Recognize your own emotional responsibility in the matter; you won't be able to blame your ex for your heartbreak forever.

I have a girl whom I give too much priority but that girl doesn't give me same priority back she is more attached to her family .I get depressed .what to do.

You have yourself diagnosed your problem! when you give too much priority to someone else, it is at the expense of your own self--you are not getting it back as you would want or deserve from your friend. This means, you are giving more than what you are getting. So, definitely, it will hurt. Please, for your sake, raise our own position i. E. You come first and then your friend. Give in a relationship that much where it is equal or atleast returned. Protect yourself from hurt by giving less in such a relationship. You will feel relieved and much better. Create some space for self and focus on your career.

Ways to Treat Insomnia

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Sexologist, Mumbai
Ways to Treat Insomnia

Insomnia is a disorder where a person has difficulty sleeping. One can have problem falling asleep or staying asleep for long. Some people also have disturbed sleep. This can be a major problem as due to lack of sleep one feels tired and fatigued all day.

Recurring cases of insomnia hamper your daily activities and interfere with the smooth functioning of your life. Therefore, this condition should not be ignored and treated immediately.

Here are the various ways to treat insomnia:

Non-Medical (Cognitive and Behavioral treatment)
Several psychological and behavioral techniques can be used for the treatment of insomnia. Many of these methods can be easily self-taught and others require a therapist to be carried out properly. 

  1. Relaxation training, which is also called progressive muscle relaxation involves the patient to tense and relax his muscles systematically in various parts or regions of the body. Relaxation techniques, such as breathing exercises, various forms of meditation, mindfulness and guided imagery are used for treating insomnia people. The use of audio recordings for guidance in these techniques is quite popular.
  2. Stimulus control enables building an association between the bedroom and sleep. This is done by limiting several kinds of activities done in a bedroom. This may include going to bed only when very sleepy and leaving bed if you cannot sleep within twenty minutes. A strict bedtime and wake up time schedule has to be maintained.
  3. Cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT involves changes in behavior like maintaining a strict sleep time schedule, elimination of afternoon naps and other habits related to sleep. A cognitive component is also added to this method. Unhealthy beliefs and fear regarding sleep are challenged and positive, rational thinking is encouraged. CBT is a very effective procedure for treating insomnia and the track record regarding success is high.
  4. Changes in lifestyle are required to treat insomnia and prevent recurrence of insomnia, you should change certain habits and start some new practices. You should limit your intake of caffeine, alcohol and nicotine. Do not consume coffee or tea before going to sleep and avoid smoking. The habits may be stimulating and will keep you awake. Your diet should be balanced. You should avoid having rich and spicy food before going to bed. Avoid late meals and maintain a proper schedule for meals. Regular exercise can improve the symptoms of insomnia and you should try to work out every day.

Medical Treatment: There are many forms of medicines, which can treat insomnia. This includes over-the-counter medicines, as well as prescribed medicines. The type of medicine required completely depends on the severity and symptoms of your insomnia and other factors related to health. Therefore, you must consult a doctor before having any kind of medicine for treating insomnia.

The most common medicines for insomnia, which are usually prescribed by doctors are benzodiazepine hypnotics, non-benzodiazepine hypnotics and melatonin receptor agonists. However, medicines should only be taken after consulting with a specialist. Insomnia not only affects your health but also interferes with all your daily activities. Proper treatment should be taken to treat the same. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

I started to prepare for IIT as my friends but when took both chance if IIT and could not qualify. Then I started feeling guilty and started preparing medical then in entrance exam I was unable to score well then I decided to. Then I thought to again qualify btech entrance first then in ibstarted preparing hard in mean time I got panic disorder and after recovering Little my mind changed to directly go for MBBS enter exam and regular attempts pmt 3 attempts but I was under medication on paroxtene 37.5 CR I thought I will leave medicine when I will qualify.

Please help me sir.

Dear, it is not at all necessary that an intelligent student should go for mbbs or iit. Neither it is a rule that intelligent people do not have problems. Even if you have panic disorder and you are better on medications you can definitely go for any professional courses of your choice. Since you have completed your preparations for mbbs entrance you may give it a go. If you do not qualify you should find some better alternative without delay. Good luck.
