I am depressed because my health is not too good. I am suffering from absent mindedness. So please help me.
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.

Hi, I will suggest you ask him to prepare much in advance. Lack of preparation could be a possible reason of anxiety and fear. The more he is thorough with his syllabus, the more confident he will be. Also, ask him to study in small chunks and for small durations; to take up bits of each chapter instead of doing everything altogether. This way he has a lot to retain because of which only some information is stored. He can try to simplify the matter given and can produce it in his own way. Marks shall be awarded for concept and not bookish language. He can also practice doing mock exams, ensure they are timed. He should feel as if he is in an examination hall and do it sincerely without taking much breaks and without any kind of disturbances. Ask him to analyse his thoughts post this mock session. This should help, come back later for more help.

What is the home remedies to get rid off stammering problem I am facing the same for 15 years.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Stammering can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Wishing you good health.

Got your pain, its really unfortunate to land in such issue while under any management which shakes faith on self and on our consultants. So relax. Be consistent. The clinical condition need to co-relate with your status in person.

I am a 18 years boy. Now a day I cannot concentrate on my study. Due to family problem. So guide me what to do! Need your help.

Dear, welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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. Take care.

I think you are well advised to meet with this neighbor and explain your predicament viz-a-viz needing the dog for a therapeutic reason. Without that reason he may rightfully feel annoyed that the dog's yelping may cause him disturbance to him and his family. People are very understanding if explanations are proffered. After all you may have disturbed a rather peaceful neighborhood!

Hi, I am facing a depression issue badly. I have lost my weight and hopeless towards life. What should I do ?

Hi, I am facing a depression issue badly. I have lost my weight and hopeless towards life. What should I do ?
Please start counseling immediately and avail of the help you need to handle the daily challenges and stresses of a person in depression in order to cope with them effectively. Being in depression your sleep patterns will often get terribly disturbed. In fact I will not be surprised to know that your natural biorhythms will also be skewed up and with that weight loss may also emanate. The natural wake up cycle for the human is between 4 and 6 am. Many people who are depressed do not adhere to this regimen and the whole day can then become so out of sync that you will suffer jetlag-like stress and will not ever know about it. Do get back to the natural rhythm soon. You can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night?s sleep by going to bed early, 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, if they are not there for you. 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.

My girlfriend is psychologically hurted & not stable and I am not able to direct her the right path. Which makes me over think about everything near me. Please tell me how can I help her. Her parents hurt her likw anything. because of which she is in depression & takes everything negatively. And gets more into physical activities so she feels relaxed as said by her. I cant see her like this. Is there any psychological solution or something that can be done to make her stable?

This is really wonderful that you want to help her at your age! I suppose she is younger than you and so I suspect that she is going through the last phase of her adolescence. This may last or may have already lasted two years only. After that it will subside but she should have resolved a lot of the problems of parental abuse by then. Otherwise she will carry all the negative traits into her adult life and then when it starts to degenerate, things could get bad. I therefore suggest that she talks to a counselor and see what that person can do in the circumstances. If that person wants to meet with the parents then that must happen too. You have to be patient and loving to her through all this. She should not feel rejected by you under any circumstances. In fact she may inadvertently try to make you reject her but you must not buy into that easily. After she resolves the issues she will be truly worth the wait and she will be able to love you passionately. She is right about her exercise: when she does vigorous exercise the energy of the anger will be expelled and she will feel a lot calmer. But this is a temporary solution and the more permanent one lies in sorting out the feelings she has accumulated over the years. You must be by her side and help her through all this. But I like you and may your tribe increase.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Sir go for a complete detox of your body with the help of ayurveda's panchakarma therapy. It includes abhyangam (massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. This wud rejuvenate your body - improving your work efficiency and bettering your sleep. It will also strengthen your nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of your body - cleansing your body. Also take shirodhara which would completely take the stress out of your body and you will feel light, fresh and full of energy. Strictly avoid all junks, oily -spicy food, pickles if you r eating, drink lots of water, juices or daily have fresh fruits. Try to keep your bowel clear.

I am manoj. I have smoking daily. In 3years, so I have leave a smoking what can I do?

PHD Psychology, MSC Clinical Psychology, BSC Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
It’s hard to quit smoking, but you can do it. To have the best chance of quitting and staying a non-smoker, you need to know what you’re up against, what your options are, and where to go for help. Nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) can help with the difficult withdrawal symptoms and cravings that 70% to 90% of smokers say is their only reason for not giving up cigarettes. Using NRT reduces those symptoms.

Dear lybrate-user hi, I wd like to give you a very simple formula on the basis of the little details you have furnished. First try having a regular healthy physical activity routine & that is start your day at the same time every morning, relaxed mornings, little physical activity,--like walk, yoga, pranayam etc; avoid bed during day time, eat lots of fluids, socialise,evening walk/yoga/meditation, join some social clubs or groups. Eat light in dinner & go to bed when feeling sleepy ,don't go to bed & wait for sleep-rather go to bed when feeling sleepy. Try following these for a few days religiously for a month and see the difference!

Effective Communication Between Couples

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Effective Communication Between Couples

When you spend so much time with someone you are bound to have at least an occasional difference of opinion, to say the least, and it’s not always easy to keep objective and levelheaded when you enter into a disagreement with your partner. When this happens, remember to use these effective communication skills with your partner to improve the odds of reaching a solution that is in the relationship’s best interest.

This is because no matter how much you love and respect each other, it might not be possible to always keep cool and be levelheaded while entering into a disagreement with your significant other.

Here are a few effective communication skills that can improve the odds of reaching an amicable solution:

  1. Use ‘I’ in the statement: Never blame your partner. This can make your partner feel that you are trying to attack your partner’s feelings, which often takes a negative turn. For example, if your partner is late, you can say “I would have appreciated if you had called me”. In this case, it’s all about how you feel and so it’s now up to the partner to appreciate, understand and consider your situation.

  2. Don’t interrupt; listen first: Generally, in an argument, both the partners usually wait for their turn to talk and spurt out their anger and resentment. But this often makes things get worse. Most of the time, disagreements and petty discords, often, get resolved more easily, when someone pays more attention to the cause that might be making the other person upset. Also, watch out for the other person’s body language for getting a grip of his/her feelings. Try and pay undivided attention to what your partner has to say. Only when you have understood what might be the reason for all the hullaballoo, should you start explaining.

  3. Don’t dig up the Past: Always stick to the discussion and the controversy at hand. Never dig up old corpses. Digging up past hatchet will only churn out further heated arguments, things you surely would want to avoid. Remember, resolving multiple conflicts could only get nastier and even more difficult.

  4. Explain later, Acknowledge first: The most effective way of avoiding sudden escalation of disagreements is to first listen and acknowledge your partner’s feelings. Do it even if you think that the other person’s argument lacks reason. Take your time to hear out the other person.

  5. Maintain a Positive and a Respectful Tone: Lastly, maintain a positive and a respectful tone. And never abuse. Abusing is derogatory and can invite further malice that will only keep on spiraling north. There never was and will never be any alternative to maintaining dignity and holding your ground no matter how much the malice is. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.
