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, in your case it has been long time, so it is imperative that you consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Dear Dr. , My son 12 year old in 7th standard was suffering from Epilepsy in his early years. After completing his course of 4 years of Epilepsy , he is absolutely fine from last 7 years after leaving the medicine. At present he is complaining of severe headache from last 3 or 4 days. We have consulted MBBS Doctor and he has given some medicine for this temporary phase. My question is that " Is this headache is related to that Epilepsy " What we should do. EEG is required or this may be another reason. Regards,

Hi there, Headache is something caused by over 30 reasons ranging from diminution of vision or ear related problem to simple stress.... The list may include a form of epilepsy but seems unlikely unless we can rule out more obvious and common causes for this problem.. I believe EEG is not the investigation needed at this point.... Rather going for eye testing be the first step in this.... More over a detailed history is very essential in ruling out most of the likely causes... Feel free to connect further... Plz take care.

Is it ok if person smokes as well as does enough physical work normal for his health?
Smoking is associated with significantly serious health problems like lung cancer, oral cancer, impotence, etc. The risk of cancer is even higher in those with family history of smoking. Smoking also causes harm to people around you as they become passive smokers. The best thing is to quit smoking immediately to promote good health. There is no connection between exercise and smoking; exercise will not reverse the harmful effects of smoking.

I Am 20 yrs old. When I get sad I always think of suicide? But I am a Psychology student and I know but. What should I do now?

Hi, just as a cardiologist does not get immune to heart diseases, similarly a psychology student is not immune to depression. I use the word depression because "getting sad" will not make you think of suicide. Thoughts of suicide come when someone feels that they cannot bear to live their life and death is perceived as the only relief. It is a desperate thought to escape the reality for it is too painful. Having said that, depression responds very well to psychotherapy with or without medication. The core issue with depression is a negative thought system that runs 24 hours a day in our minds without us being aware of it. Consider consulting a psychologist. They will help you learn powerful techniques to change your faulty thought pattern, give you new perspectives to the same problems and will assist you in leading a much more meaningful and happy life. All the best!

Sinusitis is an inflammation, or swelling, of the tissue lining the sinuses. Normally, sinuses are filled with air. But when they become blocked and filled with fluid, germs (bacteria, viruses, and fungi) can grow and cause an infection. Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include the common cold, allergic rhinitis (swelling of the lining of the nose), nasal polyps (small growths in that lining), or a deviated septum (a shift in the nasal cavity). Homoeopathic constitutional treatment will give you permanent cure , without any side effects.

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.

Your stress is of a high level. This shortage of sleep portends serious repercussions for your health, let alone your business. You must be aware that many businesses do not last for various reasons. If you have to cut your losses and shut down the business for another, do it fast and consult a professional. Sometimes the location may not be suitable, the business may have run out its course, new approaches and competition can all put you out of your venture. Change is the only constant in life: innovate or perish. Passivity is criminal to the situation. Do something, even if it wrong. Try many options before you settle with the right one. But get on with your life, and soon too. Your sleep will return to normal levels and your health will not be threatened.

There is no need to be alarmed to this extent. Between the ages of 16 to 18 years, for a duration of almost exactly two years, all boys and girls will have a spurt in the production of the male sex hormone, testosterone. Due to this hormone there are three identified effects, all because of this chemical: you will become sexually active; you will become aggressive and rebellious; and you will all suffer acne and pimple problems. You have no choice because this is a body clock mechanism that gets activated and over the two years that it prevails, it will gradually subside and return to normal. But during this time you could (driven by the hormones) do something inadvertent that there may be no turning the clock back. So you need to exercise control and channelize this energy through games and sports and hobbies. Also you would have developed secondary sexual characteristics and they seek to be used and seek fulfillment. Again this is not a problem but the drive can be very bad for those who do not have sufficiently well developed value systems or a good conscience. These kids can lose control and become reckless. Most kids have a problem, like you do, around their sexual urges and may resort to acting out in the form of masturbation, pornography, and other sexual exploits. If you indulge in any of these you can get into a guilt trip or develop an addiction that may plague you for a long time. There is no threat to your mental well being. Your character will certainly be tested, and it will reflect your development in this regard. The best thing to do is to get a sex education from a counselor and ask all the questions you wish answered. Otherwise you will want to experiment or seek information from your peers who are not adequately qualified to really do justice to your queries.

Stress management is all about taking charge: of your lifestyle, thoughts, emotions, and the way you deal with problems. No matter how stressful your life seems, there are steps you can take to relieve the pressure and regain control. First of all. Think about 1. What caused your stress (make a guess if you’re unsure) 2. How you felt, both physically and emotionally 3. How you acted in response 4. What you did to make yourself feel better Here you have not mentioned anything in detail. So initially you may try some relaxation techniques Relax. You deserve it, it's good for you, and it takes less time than you think. Here comes some relaxation techniques. Try them 1. Meditation: A few minutes of practice per day can help ease. “Research suggests that daily meditation may alter the brain’s neural pathways, making you more resilient to stress,”  It's simple. Sit up straight with both feet on the floor. Close your eyes. Focus your attention on reciting -- out loud or silently -- a positive mantra such as “I feel at peace” or “I love myself.” Place one hand on your belly to sync the mantra with your breaths. Let any distracting thoughts float by like clouds. 2. Breathe Deeply Take a 5-minute break and focus on your breathing. Sit up straight, eyes closed, with a hand on your belly. Slowly inhale through your nose, feeling the breath start in your abdomen and work its way to the top of your head. Reverse the process as you exhale through your mouth. 3. Reach Out Your social network is one of your best tools for handling stress. Talk to others -- preferably face to face, or at least on the phone. Share what's going on. You can get a fresh perspective while keeping your connection strong. There are many more techniques. Try this first and observe whether there is a change.

How do i treat acute anxiety ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
The first and foremost demand on you is to identify the cause of this anxiety and its management. It mostly has to do with your tendency to get disturbed easily, even for frivolous reasons. Also some experiences in the past may have been traumatic and has left wounds that have you fear-bound. Talk to a counselor and deal with those events and clear the past. Physical fitness will make your heart (a muscle) grow larger and therefore beat less often and more efficiently. You need to start an aerobic regimen for the rest of your life. It will reduce your palpitations for even big events. You must see why your feeling of fear lies in your system, unexpressed. This feeling does need an outlet every time. If not it will find a suitable organ in your body to express itself and make that organ suffer malfunction or total dysfunction. The favorite organ for most people is the heart, by disturbing the mind. The best is to work on your perception ? if you change your perception, you change your response! If you get too attached to the future, you will be afraid in anticipation of events not yet manifest. The present is where happiness is found ? live only for the day knowing that all your actions are an investment into the future. Learn stress management. Consume a lot of fiber in your diet and have a variety in it too. Sleep for at least 8 hours a day, preferably more time before midnight. Live in peace with everybody. Do not hold grudges. Forgive and move on. Reduce you intake of fatty food, alcohol, and of course no smoking at all. Drink lots of water every day. Sometimes indecision due to fear, will cause you more anxiety. Learn the art of making correct and prompt decisions, and where necessary consult a reliable person before making decisions. Do become spiritually sound, and do some social work or contribute to the poor and needy.
