I am suffering from depression. I feel bored always. What can i do?

Advanced Skills in Counselling, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, DCS, Hypnotherapist
Psychologist,
At your age, depression and boredom is common. Menopausal depression can be addressed with medication and counselling. Boredom is something which happens if your life is uninteresting and what you are doing is not in line with your dreams and aspirations. Please see a counsellor who will help you to get this straightened for you. At your age, if children are not around, the home can start looking very empty. You need to engage yourself in activities which leave you feeling fulfilled and satisfied with yourself and life, you need to exploit your talents, learn new skills and be a productive member of the society.

Hi, this question is regarding my husband .He is heavily addicted to alcohol. We have tried everything to get him out of alcohol but all in vein. I just wanted to know is there any medicine to help him get rid of alcohol.

You should enroll him in organizations like Alcohol Anonymous. Where there are groups of people with similar problems. They discuss, express there problems and also share stories how they got out of it. This acts as effective tools for behavior modification and de-addiction.

I break down all of a sudden.And I laugh for silly matters.Please let me know how to overcome this?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
In a psychologist's opinion, your current attitude is very much healthy. Among other who do not laugh easily you may be abnormal but the current attitude is the right one. Releiving your emotions will have positive effects on your whole endocrine system and laughing is an elixir. You can count on my words. Just be like now. Do not try to change. God bless you.

I've been having panic attacks since I came back to the place where something really bad happened to me (emotionally) a few months ago. Someone betrayed me and broke my trust in the worst way. But I forgave them and trusted them again. But when I came back to the place where it all happened to me before. Panic attacks started to happen. And this fear came back that the history may repeat itself.

You seem to be having lot of anxiety about the same. Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.

Dear , please understand cancer is not a disease and is not caused by any bacteria or viruses which can be killed by using some medicines or chemicals. Cancer is cell gangrene. Cell degeneration is caused because of dead cells. These dead cells affect the adjacent dead cells too. Then it spreads. Prevention is to stop smoking totally.Alternatively you may consult a psychologist near your home town. Please understand, this treatment is a must for you. Do not ignore the symptoms. Take care.

Hi, I am 25 years old female, a student. I have been feeling very low from past sometime. I get angry at small issues and I do not get over those issues easily. I do not feel like doing anything the whole day, not even able to concentrate on my studies. I am also having sleeping disorders these days. Negative thoughts come into my mind and I pick up fights with people. I talk to friends but it doesn't help me much. I just don't do anything all day, I try to escape the loneliness and these thoughts by sleeping, but I fail, I don't know whats happening. I feel a constant dissatisfaction with my life. Are these signs of depression? What should I do?

Dear lybrate user, from what you have mentioned, it appears that you are feeling sad and unhappy. Your inactivity appears like mild depression but don't term it as" depression" yourself, because depression has to be assessed by the psychiatrist/psycologist with proper assessment techniques. It seems to me that you are not doing, what you would like to do. Just think, why you are doing what you are doing now. Do something which pleases you and not others. It appears that you are angry and/or frustrated. Try to find out the reasons for this anger/frustration and start working on that. May be you have not had a happy childhood and certain things in your childhood are still bothering you. Please understand that the past is over and you have full life ahead of you. Try to do things which you like to do. Have a hobby. Keep company of friends who care for you and who have positive outlook towards life. Do not hesitate to seek help of a counsellor if you think it would help you.

Importance of Occupational Therapy in Psychiatry

Master of Occupational Therapy (MOT), Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (BOT)
Occupational Therapist, Delhi
Importance of Occupational Therapy in Psychiatry

Psychiatric treatment is never in the hands of a single person. Mental health treatment is a collaborative effort between the psychiatrist, occupational therapist, individual and his or her support system. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to engage people in some sort of activity to enhance their ability to lead a meaningful life. This need not be restricted to work but can include simple things like cooking, exercising, painting etc.

To understand what kind of treatment a patient needs, an occupational therapist will first assess the person, their needs and concerns. They understand how an illness or a particular life event can impact a person's ability to perform routine tasks. The counselor and therapist will then work together with the patient to explore possible lifestyle changes and set goals related to this. These changes are centered around the patient's strengths and preferences and take into consideration the occupations that are the most meaningful to the patient. An occupational therapist can then help the patient develop the necessary skills and find ways to make their daily lifestyle easier to handle. Thus, their lives become meaningful and satisfying and they feel a sense of achievement.

Occupational therapists also address social barriers towards the rehabilitation of a person in a community. This is done through interventions that focus on building the patient's existing skill set, creating opportunities for social integration, preventing a relapse and modifying the environment. Some of the barriers it addresses include:

  1. Stigma: By providing the patient with an opportunity to master a skill, occupational therapy boosts self confidence. This helps address the stigma against people with mental difficulties being able to form strong interpersonal relationships.
  2. Safety: A person suffering from a mental disorder is often understood to not be able to take care of himself. By helping the patient create routines for himself and giving him the confidence to perform daily tasks like cooking etc, he is at a much lower risk of accidents than before.
  3. Socioeconomic status: By giving the patient the necessary skill set to hold a job and collaborating with employers and educators, an occupational therapist can help raise a person's socioeconomic status.

Occupational therapy can benefit any person diagnosed with a mental illness or who has recently undergone a traumatic accident. It can also benefit this person's friends and family who form his support system by teaching them how to balance their caregiving with daily responsibilities. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized psychiatry and ask a free question.

You may continue taking the prescribed medicines, but I think time you realised that medicine is giving you only interim relief, the moment you stop taking medicine, you begin to feel uncomfortable. Our physical reactions are not only controlled physiologically but are impacted by our thought process. I recommend that you meet a psychologist and work on your feelings and thoughts- unless you challenge the irrationality of your fears and your thoughts, you will continue having these difficulties. Eventually you will land up taking higher doses of the medicines to calm yourself. Yoga and sudharshan kriya are good ways of relaxation but you will require cognitive behaviour therapy (cbt), or some other form of psychotherapy as a permanent solution to your fears.

By concentration. Retaining what you have learnt by constant remembering or recall and writing down by heart. Concentrate on one thing and be slow and dont rush clearly understand concepts slowly and recall and practise repeatedly what you want to remember.

Psychologist,
Hi, I have exam on next sunday. I feel irritate. What should I do?
Dear, tension during and before examination is called performance anxiety. To overcome exam related performance anxiety, you should know yourself, your subject, exams and your study patterns. Once you study systematically and to the point, there is no need to be panic before or during the exams. Effective learning techniques should help you.For further assistance you can concern me privately and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. Take care.
