I am 20 year old and having depression I think because I always feel sad and sometimes I remain to live alone and I don't like to make new friends and don't want to talk with anyone. I lost my interest in every thing. I can't remember things. I also a short tempered. If someone don't listen to me or the things are not going as I wish I feel sad. Sometimes I used to cry over small matter. Now a days I also run away from people and from my family. Earlier once I tried harming myself. Please advise me what should I do and what I am thinking is true.

feeling lonely is a very subjective thing. You don't have to be in a desert or a jungle alone to feel lonely. Many people feel lonely even in the centre of the city. Just talking to people doest eliminate loneliness. As individuals we have needs. Financial, emotional, physical, dietery, spiritual, security, materialistic etc. So happiness comes from fulfilling of these needs. Merely having people around you talking to you and nothing fulfilling your needs will still make people feel ignore d and lonely. Ultimately your happiness is in your hands. You either fulfill your needs or you learn to live without them. Because people are busy in fulfill ing their own needs and nobody has time for anyone else by and largely. We live in a world where people talk big thingd but don't actually do or mean a fraction of what they say. So you have to learn to deal with this. Also there is a huge competition that my need is more important than your needs and this is there every where around us in a very intense mode. Even if you manage ti fulfill some of your needs it is very difficult to sustain it as it may soon become someone elses need. Its like a jungle where theres constant hunting for needs going on. Even the stuff inside your house is not safe and protected from this hunting. Unfortunately this is the truth you have to live with as of now.

Medication may depend based on your symptoms. Alternatively or with years medicines You can engage yourself in some form of yoga or relaxation to take care of your stress and anxiety as apparently from your situation it seems you are very anxious. You should also share issues with close friends and pursue your hobbies to buildup your self esteem. Maybe gardening, writing, painting, music etc.

Sir my elder brother is addicted in drinking. Please can you suggest how we can get rid of this?

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (UWS, Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
There are many different ways of quitting drinking. First thing to understand is that there is no one magic pill that will cure him. Also, merely confining/ admitting him for few days or even months will not only not help but also aggravate the problem. Mixing medicines in food is also a bad idea as it will worsen existing relationships and is also unethical. Broadly, interventions can be divided into medicine based and non-medicine based. Non-medicine based interventions include counseling and psychotherapy such as MET and RPT which help to enhance will power, prevent relapse, make lifestyle changes and many more. Medicine based interventions can be broadly divided into four categories. The first group of medicines help to decrease the desire to drink. The craving from within is reduced, but not entirely abolished. Second group of medicines are used to control withdrawal symptoms like sleep problems, irritability, anger, tremors, anxiety, fits etc. A third group of medicines are used to treat the alcohol induced damage such as vitamin deficiencies, nerve damage, gastric ulcer, liver problems etc. A fourth group of medicines are occasionally used and are intended to produce a unpleasant 'reaction' if alcohol is taken. Many a time, it is the combination of many of the above measures that works best. Take care!

I don't exactly remember when I get caught by this problem. I'm feeling like I'm losing my memory very soon and can't memorize a instance or event or name or number immediately I see. I feel nervous and lack of confidence all the time due to my bodily reflexes. It shivers while I stand in front of a crowd or in front of my manager and when I take a glass full of water. I always live with anxiety and with trembling hands and head. My memory fades while I'm getting into something. I can't sustain myself in cold whether as well as in little hot I sweat like a pig. My eyesight is getting weaker year by year. I have gastric disorders like indigestion and gastritis, sexual disorder like quick ejaculation. I feel like I'm always disturbed. Please help me.

You are suffering from anxiety disorder. Because of this one. You suffered very much. Better to consult psychiatrist for medical help. Along with medicine you need psychological counselling. Sometimes internal frustration and excessive stress may cause to develop this type of symptoms. It is better to control yourself. Do not imagine negative aspects. Do not underestimate yourself. Feel always comfortable manner. When we are under excessive stress we have a feeling of memory loss. We may develop fear also. I think you alone thinking excessively these aspects. Better to share when you feel bad. Breathing exercises will help to you very much. Practice yoga and meditation. Feel always relaxed. Your negative thinking is your enemy. Better to control it. Be feel always in a relaxed manner. I am very good capable person. I can solve any type of problems think like that do not depress small things. If you think negative aspects it may lead to further aspects. Feel always confident. It is better to come from yourself without any one help. If not possible your self it is better to take the help of professions. Be sociable and be friendly always. It is good for your health. Ok best of luck.

stress always have negative impact on our personal, professional n occupational life. Dreams is a mirror of unconscious mind. In other words, whatever we tend to suppressed in our mind, gets released through our dreams. Now you need to work on releasing your negative thoughts by practicing different relaxation techniques - Deep breathing, OAM chanting, listening instrumental music, yoga, stretching exercises. It should be practiced as frequently as you get unwanted thoughts. when mind is positive and stable, you will be able to get sound sleep.

Dear, You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration. Take care.

Talking to self ,though a symptom of mental illness by it self alone (not associated with other features) is not indicative of mental illness, some Introverts talk to themselves, better get an evaluation done by a Psychiatrist, try to be conscious of your problem and develop alternate methods to express your thoughts.

Dear , bipolar affective disorder, or manic-depressive illness (mdi), is a common, severe, and persistent mental illness. This condition is a serious lifelong struggle and challenge. The treatment of bipolar affective disorder is directly related to the phase of the episode (ie, depression or mania) and the severity of that phase, and it may involve a combination of psychotherapy and medication. I request you to know more about your disorder, understand it and please do not panic. I know several people who manages their bpad effectively. Management is as good as cure. I repeat, do not panic. You will be able to manage your problem with psychotherapy and medicines. Take care.

Hi Lybrate user First of all try to improve your self esteem. Think about what meke you happy, do the things that make you really happy. Choose to be happy with who you are, be true to yourself and feel proud of the person you are. Your happiness matters, if you are happy you are more likely to spread happiness and care for those around you. Choose positivity over negativity. When things are hard and you feel down, take few deep breaths and remind yourself that you can and will grow stronger from these hard times. Remind your achievements, count your blessings and feel better. Share your feelings with close family member. You can opt some counselling seasons. Do some physical exercise, meditation. Eat healthy, sleep properly and try to enjoy your life. Thanks.

I lost somebody close last month and since then feel very depressed please help me.
It's sad to know that you have someone that is near to you. But one has to become strong to fulfil other responsibilities. To relieve your depression, you must take some strong and positive steps. Like taking a walk in morning or evening for at least 30 minutes. Drink water and natural juices and buttermilk ice tea for 4-5 times a day. Eat fruits and vegetables more. You can take homoeopathic medicines like natrum mur 1m wkly once. Keep in touch.
