it is only psychological imagination. do not think that the depressive status is also in myself. depressive thoughts and feelings are having every one. but some may be chronic stage. some may be simple stage. some have ability to control their thoughts. all are not using medicine. based on their severity of the problem. they go to doctor. but you feel unnecessarily and wants to be injected that thoughts. but it is very harmful. we observe so many patients. if we feel like you what is our position. we just listen and leave it. we dont like to inject the thoughts into our mind. you are very sensitive. you are afraid of this status. but my advise be maintain distance from those type of thoughts persons. be spend most of the time with cheerful friends. be share and feel always confident manner. be share your all personal feelings and problems to your close friends and family members. be sociable and be happy all the time. ok all the best.

She is suffering with ocd which is fear of contamination she always thinks about purification of house due to fear from religious value and consequently she will wash hand even her own hair touched and will do for a longer than normally we do. As it is normal to touch all these thing she becomes busy towards her compulsion. If we try to stop her she starts abusing loudly so that we feel embarrassed but she doesn't think. She always talk about how poisonous it is? As lizard and any wasp, mosquito etc. She washes her hand after feeling to be touched but really she didn't touch it. When we try to stop we feel embarrassing due to dirty words language used by her. If I do not interrupt how she will overcome from it as she also frustrates with these activity and if I leave alone again there is problem she always makes situation quarrelsome and then after she calms for some duration. So very disgusting situation we face she doesn't care about her activity and never regret for embarrassment due to slang and abusive word which cannot be expected from a good family. She always feels herself right. Pls give a proper solution to resolve issue as it is frustrating too much me.

It is likely she is having OCD. Fear of contamination, excess hand washing, checking, anxiety and irritability are some of the features. Consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. The best treatment is a combination of medication and behavioral therapy.

Psychologist,
Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Yoga is a combination of mental and physical technique with which the wholeness of your body and mind can be achieved. Yoga needs to be learned from a qualified yoga guru. Websites do teach yoga but I would not recommend it. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user you need to consult any professional as soon as possible, medicines along with counselling can help. Life is very precious we get only 1 life so enjoy as much as you can there are many colours in life ,only the difference lies in our approach just think about patient who is suffering from cancer at last stage that patient will desperately want to live as much as he/she can ,i know by only saying its really difficult to manage ,but you have to divert your mind, try to make yourself busy as much as you can so that no other type of thoughts come. And if still thought comes then write it on paper and also write that you will think on this topic at some other time mention the time and say to yourself that at now I am suppose to do some other work ,you can take the help of counsellor regarding this. If you need my help you can contact me. Make some new friends, try to chat on fb ,but anyhow you have to make yourself busy, increase social activities, you can do anulom vilom yoga and some deep breathing exercise, join any hobby class, listen loud music as it will interfere with your thought, you can make some plan with friends, make any good friend so that by sharing you will feel good. Take care.

I am 25 years old, I am getting angry very soon and also frustrated. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands, scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. The right thing to do however, is to find out why you are angry and whether it stems from some recent event or has it got roots way back from your past. In either case it would do good to meet with a counselor and deal with it effectively in therapy.

You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands, scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. You can also hand over the feeling to god, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too.

Main kafi dino se depression me hun kafi ilag karbaya lekin koi faida nahin hai please suggest me good advice.
Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Hi doctor. I have some problem in my brain. At midnight I have some unusual dreams. Seeing those dreams my brain starts thinking fast about my past.

It happens in case of some traumatic experiences in past. Our conscious brain does not want to recall that unfortunate event/experience but our subconscious mind has that remembrance. That is why although we claim to forget it comes in dream. Forgetting painful memories is a kind of defense mechanism of brain to reduce the stress. Try to avoid thinking about it and about the past. Have healthy meal at time, have regular exercise, meditation, yoga etc. Listen some relaxing music at evening, have adequate rest and recreation. At evening have early and light dinner, wear comfortable loose clothing and have a comfortable, mosquito free bed in a comfortable environment. Then you will have sound sleep and less dreams.

NEGATIVE THINKING? DON'T DESPAIR, IT CAN BE CHANGED
When a person has been through difficult times like abuse, anger, fear, anxiety, alcoholism etc. In their lives, Often their mind starts having frequent negative thoughts and images which might say that “this the way life is and i cannot ever succeed in life and be happy”. The truth is that everyone has positive and negative thoughts as its normal. But some people tend to believe them as the universal truth and don’t see beyond the limiting nature of these thoughts. Such people will be fearful to make any changes in their life and often feel stuck in situations. They may experience an overwhelming amount of confusion and anxiety, which can be very detrimental in their wish to lead a satisfying and meaningful life.
For the person with social anxiety disorder (SAD), a social or performance situation may elicit thoughts such as "everyone can see how anxious I am" or "everyone is judging me". These thoughts often occur so automatically that the person is not aware of his pessimistic thinking.
People who are clinically depressed may experience bad thoughts more intensely, and view them as evidence that they are worthless or sinful people. The suicidal thoughts that are common in depression must be distinguished from negative thoughts, because suicidal thoughts can be dangerous.People who are depressed typically think in a biased, negative way. They have negative views of themselves (e.g. `I'm no good'), the world (e.g. `Life has no meaning') and the future (e.g. `I will always feel this way')

Negative thoughts like these have several characteristics. They are:
1. Automatic: they just pop into your head without any effort on your part;
2. Distorted: they do not fit all of the facts;
3. Unhelpful: they keep you depressed, make it difficult to change, and stop you from getting what you want out of life;
4. Plausible: you accept them as facts, and it does not occur to you to question them;
5. Involuntary: you do not choose to have them, and they can be very difficult to switch off.

Thoughts like these can trap you in a vicious circle. The more depressed you become, the more negative thoughts you have, and the more you believe them. The more negative thoughts you have, and the more you believe them, the more depressed you become. The main goal of cognitive therapy in counselling is to help you to break out of this vicious circle.

BECOMING AWARE OF YOUR NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
The first step in overcoming negative thinking is to become aware of your thoughts, and of their effects on you. Negative thoughts make you feel bad - anxious, sad, depressed, hopeless, guilty, angry. Instead of being overwhelmed by these feelings, you can learn to use them as a cue for action. Notice when your mood changes for the worse, and look back at what was running through your mind at that moment. Over the course of a few days, you will become more sensitive to changes in your feelings, and to the thoughts that spark them off. You may well find that the same thoughts occur again and again, because negative thoughts are repetitive in nature.

TYPES OF NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
1.MENTAL FILTER: When we notice only what the filter allows us to notice, and we dismiss anything that doesn’t ‘fit’. Like looking through dark glasses and saying that everything is dark and gloomy, not seeing that its actually sunny without the glasses on. Anything, which is more positive or realistic is sieved, ignored, dismissed or we make excuses for. Eg. A change in job means more problems.
2.MIND READING: We assume what the others are thinking about us and decide that they see us as a dumb and stupid person. Eg. My boss thinks that I am not capable
3.PREDICTION: believing that we know exactly what is going to happen in the future. Eg. I am going to fail this test.
4.COMPARE AND DESPAIR: We tend to see only the positive aspects of other people and in comparison, we see only the negative aspects of ourselves. Eg. My colleagues are so knowledgeable and skilled, whereas I have just started my career. Surely, the boss will favour them!
5.CRITICAL SELF: Putting ourselves down, blaming ourselves for situations and events that are not totally our responsibility. Eg. My son failed because I didn’t sit down with him to teach him.
6.SHOULDS AND MUSTS: Thinking or saying “I should”, “I must” puts a lot of undue pressure on us, setting us up for unrealistic expectations from self or others and may not be in touch with reality. Eg. I must always agree to what my father tells me to do.
7.CATASTROPHISING: Imagining that only the worst can ever happen if something doesn’t go our way. Eg. If I lose this job, then I will never get another good job.
8.EMOTIONAL REASONING: Sometimes, we tend to get swayed by our emotions and take decisions based on them, not realising that the emotional reaction is not in scale with the reality. Eg. If I am feeling bad, then it must be really bad. Or if I am feeling anxious, then I must be in danger.
9.MOUNTAINS AND MOLEHILLS: maximising the negatives or minimising the positives in any situation. Eg. The last time I went to the toilet, i slipped and fell... I will slip and fall every time I will go to any toilet.
10.JUDGEMENTS AND EVALUATIONS: Making judgements about events, ourselves, others, or the world, rather than describing what we actually see and have evidence for. Eg. My friends are always critical of the way I look and behave. They have never liked me for anything.
11. BLACK AND WHITE THINKING: believing that something or someone can only be good or bad, right or wrong rather than seeing anything in-between or “shades of gray”. Eg. My husband has never taken care of me and he’s always listening to his mother.
12.MEMORIES OF THE PAST: based on the experiences of the past, which were traumatic, we decide that we are in danger in the present, causing distress in the present. Eg. My boyfriend cheated on me, now I will never date again...all boys are like that.

Don't despair, if you find that you have many of these thinking patterns. Most of us have them. Remember, that these are just thoughts and they can be managed. By being observant, we can learn to challenge them and create more optimistic and helpful styles of thinking, which will elevate our mood and reduce stress and anxiety.
Counselling is a safe space where you can discover your negative thoughts, challenge them and modify them to suit your current needs and environment. This can help you to get more out of your life making you feel more in control, accomplished and satisfied.

Feel free to message me on personal chat for any questions and appointments. I do face to face and skype sessions too.

I 'M a age of 20 having a habit of smoking how to stop.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

How can improve my memory. I forget something sometimes that's very dangerous situation. Please suggest me.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Improving memory is a multifactorial process and requires good concentration levels, good attention span and ability to recollect and interpret things accordingly. In case you tend to forget things often, that may be due to poor attention span, easy distractibility and multiple things at work in your mind. To improvise on memory take it slow, organise things in order of importance. Have a good sleep at night.
