Hi lybrate-user, If you have lost a loved one, the following tips may help you cope with the loss: •Let yourself feel the pain and all the other emotions, too. Don’t tell yourself how to feel or let others tell you how you should feel. •Be patient with the process. Don’t pressure yourself with expectations. Accept that you need to experience your pain, your emotions, and your own way of healing − all in your own time. Don’t judge your emotions or compare yourself to others. Remember that no one else can tell you how you should mourn or when to stop. •Acknowledge your feelings, even the ones you don’t like. Let yourself cry. You need to do both for healing. •Get support. Talk about your loss, your memories, and your experience of the life and death of your loved one. Don’t think you are protecting your family and friends by not expressing your sadness. Ask others for what you need. Find and talk to others who have lost a loved one. •Try to maintain your normal lifestyle. Don’t make any major life changes (for example, moving, changing jobs, changing important relationships) during the first year of bereavement. This will let you keep your roots and some sense of security. •Take care of yourself. Eat well and exercise. Physical activity is a good way to release tension. Allow yourself physical pleasures that help you renew yourself, like hot baths, naps, and favorite foods. •Avoid drinking too much alcohol or using other drugs. This can harm your body as well as dull your emotions. It’s also likely to slow your recovery and may cause new problems. •Forgive yourself for all the things you did or didn’t say or do. Compassion and forgiveness for yourself and others is important in healing. •Give yourself a break from grief. You must work through it, but you don’t need to focus on grief all the time. Find distractions like going to a movie, dinner, or a ball game; reading a good book; listening to music; or getting a massage or manicure. •Prepare for holidays, birthdays, and anniversaries knowing that strong feelings may come back. Decide if you want to keep certain traditions or create new ones. Plan in advance how you want to spend your time and with whom. Do something to honor the memory of your loved one. •Join a bereavement support group. Other people can encourage, guide, and comfort you. They can also offer practical advice and information, and help you feel less alone. If you can’t find a group near you, online groups may be helpful. •When you feel ready, do something creative. Some options include: oWrite a letter to the person who died to say everything you wish you could say to them. OStart keeping a journal. OMake a scrapbook. OPaint pictures. OPlant flowers or trees. OInvolve yourself in a cause or activity that the deceased loved. You need to give some time for yourself and the process to work. It might affect your work but you keep calm. If you need any further guidance, we will be happy to help you.

Please get yourself diagnosed for your problem by a psychologist, first. Based on the reports, get the right treatment. You are too young at present and proper diagnosis and appropriate help will definitely help.

There are always ways to solve a problem but because of our negative and pessimistic thinking we can not see the right path. Science and psychology says whenever u r in deep stress just stop and take a deep breath, keep calm and let ur wise mind take decisions, which usually in stress can not cum up to think and give u a right way of thinking.

My friend loves a girl. She also loved him. But she cheated him and married an another guy. Now he is not disturbing her. But she again disturbs him. He fear so much about that. What should we do. please give me suggestion. Is this better to go for police station.

B.A PSYCHOLOGY HONOURS, M.A PSYCHOLOGY, M.Phil - Psychology, PhD PSYCHOLOGY

No. Why call police? The girl does not seem to be a sensible one. You and your friend have been blessed by god that she married elsewhere! just try to think, had she got married to your friend and then had cheated him by going to her previous lover/friend, what life would have been like! strongly suggest, ask your friend not to bother about her any longer and rather concentrate to better his own life in terms of career, family, etc. Let him close all eyes and ears for her and focus on his life. When she sees, no response from his side will go back. You may not be required to do anything else best of luck. Happy diwali.

M from medical profession and read about melancholic depression and I am having most of the symptoms related to it like anhedonia, early morning awakening, depression more severe in the morning. I wanted to know, what's the success rate of melancholic depression with bupropion or other AD. Tca has got better result compared to other drugs. What about fluoxetine? Or venflaxine So shall I give a try to TCA .and any other tips in particular to melancholic depression.

Dear lybrate-user, Most antidepressants work more or less at the same level. Mostly, you go by the side-effects - whether they are acceptable by you. Both Vilazodone and Bupropion have minimal sexual side effect. Fluoxetine has more erectile dysfunction. Weight and sedation are also to be taken into account. If you can tolerate effective dose of TCA, you can try. Otherwise go for Venlafaxine. The only tip is - it is not the antidepressant. It is the duration (minimum 3-6 weeks) and dose (TCA and Venlafaxine 75 - 225 mg) of the tablet that matters.

Iam suffering from anxiety and panic attack. E. Agoraphobia kindly suggest me what to do.

Iam suffering from anxiety and panic attack. E. Agoraphobia kindly suggest me what to do.
Hi Agoraphobia treatment usually includes both psychotherapy and medication. It may take some time, but treatment can help you get better. Psychotherapy Also known as talk therapy or psychological counseling, psychotherapy involves working with a therapist to reduce your anxiety symptoms. Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the most effective forms of psychotherapy for anxiety disorders, including agoraphobia. Generally a short-term treatment, cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on teaching you specific skills to gradually return to the activities you've avoided because of anxiety. Through this process, your symptoms improve as you build upon your initial success. You can learn: That your fears are unlikely to come true That your anxiety gradually decreases if you remain in public and you can manage those symptoms until they do What factors may trigger a panic attack or panic-like symptoms and what makes them worse How to cope with these symptoms How to change unwanted or unhealthy behaviors through desensitization, also called exposure therapy, to safely face the places and situations that cause fear and anxiety. You can also take these steps to cope and care for yourself when you have agoraphobia: Stick to your treatment plan. Take medications as directed. Keep therapy appointments. Consistency can make a big difference, especially when it comes to taking your medication. Try not to avoid feared situations. It's hard to go to places or be in situations that make you uncomfortable or that bring on symptoms of anxiety. But practicing going to more and more places can make them less frightening and anxiety provoking. Family, friends and your therapist can help you work on this. Learn calming skills. Working with your health care professional, you can learn how to calm and soothe yourself. You can practice these skills on your own, especially at the first hint of anxiety. Practice relaxation techniques. Meditation, yoga and imagery are simple relaxation techniques that may help — and you can do them in the comfort of your own home. Practice these techniques when you aren't anxious or worried, and then put them into action during stressful situations. Avoid alcohol and illegal drugs. These substances can worsen your panic or anxiety symptoms. Take care of yourself. Get enough sleep, be physically active every day, and eat a healthy diet, including lots of vegetables and fruits. Consult me for any query.
