I'm 16 years old. I think I might have depression. I lost myself. I started feeling alone from when I was 12 cause my parents used to never talk to me about me. Now my mood swings and my mind fluctuates. I eat a lot of junk food. I'm sleeping more than I usually do. I totally lost concentration in studies. I imagine a lot. I'm stuck with this mind. I have not gone to any doctor. Please help me

You are disappointed, not depressed. Nobody is yours. You are alone. To live in this world, you need to be positive. You should have an aim. Internal motivation to succeed. If you do not have that motivation, you need to cultivate it. Nobody can help you except YOU.

Dear user. Confidence is directly proportional to your experience. The more you have experience on a particular aspect of life, the more confidence you will have on that aspect of life. Personality development training and therapy could help you in building confidence. Take care.

Hi we have no control on others behavior and their attitude, it's better we need modify our expectations to others. Do some deep breathing exercise, jpmr and visualization for emotional comfort. Eat balanced food, include sunlight exposure in the early morning, drink amla juice, betroot juice, aswagantha soornam, on daily basis. Regards

MD said Prozac maxed out for me so then effector (hated it almost suicidal!), cymbalta, lexipro, Zoloft and now supposed to start paxil. I can't keep doing this.

You have been having depression of a relapsing nature and it seems to be more resistant to medications every next time. You might need a combinations of two or more group of antidepressants along with some augmenting agents too. Consult a psychiatrist personally, along with a family member or close friend. Do not stay alone. Always be with a friend or family member all the time. Ask for help and tell some one if you feel like having death wishes. If medicines are taking longer time to show effects and you continue to have deliberate self harm thoughts you may get admitted under a psychiatrist and start modified ects too. However that remains only one among all options. You have recovered from depression in past and you will surely improve this time too, sooner or later. Keep the faith. Take care.

Hi sir,
I sleep too much, think too much and put my self in bad mood. All resulting in memory loss.
You will need a evaluation for a depressive/ anxiety spectrum disorder. If this occurs once in a while it is okay, but if it is a regular feature an evaluation will be needed. I think there is no harm in getting a consultation because there is much to lose if it turns out that you do have a problem. So, please do not delay and meet an expert in your town. Take care!

Hello Lybrate user, lybrate-user "Life"& "Death" both exist because of each other. One does not exist without the other. Because it is the universal truth. But yes, you might have seen death more than life yet that does in no way conclude that you lose faith in nature. And death is just physcial. The spirit (soul) stays. There is a reason behind everything that happens around us. At that moment we might get shocked, so we are unable to get the reason. Of everything else, nature has the most logic to everything that happens within. So if you live, it's for a reason, live to find that and you must respect that reason. And just as there is a reasonbehind death too. You might not understand that now, but if you keep living you will eventually find the answer. Life is very precious and we have some very special job roll for every individuals. Try to find out what is your responsibility towards your life and you will definitely find it. But it will not do any good if you choose to go against the reason of your existence. And it is good to go through such phases in life, because basically you are an emotional person, so life is making you stronger. Try and start meditation. Meditation means to understand about yourself with some positive thoughts. It may not be an instant formula that fixes things but it will work. Have a good life ahead. All my good wishes are with you.

Have you done hormonal tests, including thyroid function tests. Skipping lunch is a bad ides, you need to have small spaced low calorie meals. Eating 6 times a day 1/4th tummy will also help in weight loss. Also there are genetic factors, is there obesity in your family? if so, despite all these measures, sometimes it can not be helped.

Procrastination - 5 Ways You Can Beat It!

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Procrastination - 5 Ways You Can Beat It!

The activity of delaying or putting off something is known as procrastination. Even the best individuals battle with it consistently. However, some people accomplish something that the majority of us do not- they push past it. They do not permit it to influence their work. They develop brilliant and beneficial techniques to break past mental obstructions and remain productive. Here are a few ways with which you can beat procrastination:

  1. Try to start: Starting something can be very difficult. However, in case that you can get over that part, you will have some level of energy. Even your brain will probably goad you to continue dealing with the task. This happens because of a mental phenomenon called the Zeigarnik impact. It says that unfinished tasks will probably stay in your memory. This is exactly why planned things and to-do lists consistently appear in your mind until you finish them.
  2. Separate huge tasks into smaller assignments: Enormous tasks can frighten you, so you put them off. By taking that huge task and separating it into smaller assignments, you can decrease your burden make a start. This could include concentrating on one part of the research to begin with.
  3. Ask yourself “why?”: It is easier to inspire yourself to accomplish something you value. In case you are attempting to complete something, why not spend a couple of minutes asking yourself precisely why you need to do it and why it is so important to you. Weighing out the positives and negatives of the task and its benefits for you, can make you decide and perform better.
  4. Attempt to take a break: For those who procrastinate out of having worked too much, it does not mean you have to complete the task at once. This is known as the "sunk cost bias." The "sunk cost bias" influences players, speculators, and even a procrastinator. They feel that the task will need to be completed now and cannot be completed in the future. In some cases, a task simply does not mean you have to work on it more and more after hours.
  5. Go easy on yourself: To beat procrastination, you should be strict with yourself. However, that is not what science says. In case that you have procrastinated till now, you will probably begin on time going ahead. You need to show yourself some sympathy for your previous laziness instead of thrashing yourself about it.

Self-control is an important quality many successful individuals have. Having self-control permits you to carefully understand why you are procrastinating and can likewise, work towards it. When you understand why you are doing so, it will be easier for you to make a plan to beat it. This will allow you to see the underlying cause of your problem as well.

Dr. I am a very anxiety prone person. As a result, I hav suffered a lot in lyf. I hav been diagnosed to suffer from ocd wich in my case is not typical ocd as I do not hav compulsion to keep doing a particular thing repeatedly I am having Clonil -75 SR for almost 20 years n this medicine has helped me lot. Besides it I take serlift 100, Etilaam,0.5 mg n pregalin Wat shud b my approach to get rid of these medication. I am also having hypothyroidism for wich I take 100 m.mg thyronorm.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, it is good that you are able to tolerate the medicines and kept the ocd without any rituals. I hope that you are keeping your thyroid (tsh) also in balance. Along with these medicines, you need cognitive therapy from me or any clinical psychologist. You need to question and challenge the negative thoughts like" I have suffered a lot in life" I have ocd" I have hypothyroid also" these kind of thoughts come up due to certain errors you make in your thought process. You need to find them, correct them gradually during the therapy and challenge them later in therapy. All these sessions will be along with the same drugs in same dose and 100 mcg of thyronorm. As you go along other drugs will be reduced whereas thyronorm will be for life.

I am a smoker. I'm smoking since 2 years. I can't stop smoking. What are the steps to be taken to stop smoking. And how long I will live healthy if I continue smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You can stop smoking if you keep on trying. No one can predict the exact time of your death if you continue smoking. Each cigarette can cut short your life by 5 minutes, if that is of any help. You can judge for yourself with the following data: Summary: (Source: Center for Disease Control and Prevention) • Cigarette smoking causes more than 480,000 deaths each year in the United States. This is nearly one in five deaths. • More than 10 times as many U.S. citizens have died prematurely from cigarette smoking than have died in all the wars fought by the United States during its history. • Smoking causes about 90% (or 9 out of 10) of all lung cancer deaths in men and women.1,2 More women die from lung cancer each year than from breast cancer. • About 80% (or 8 out of 10) of all deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are caused by smoking. • Cigarette smoking increases risk for death from all causes in men and women. • Smoking is estimated to increase the risk— o For coronary heart disease by 2 to 4 times o For stroke by 2 to 4 times o Of men developing lung cancer by 25 times • Of women developing lung cancer by 25.7 times • Smoking causes diminished overall health, increased absenteeism from work, and increased health care utilization and cost. • Smoking causes stroke and coronary heart disease. • Even people who smoke fewer than five cigarettes a day can have early signs of cardiovascular disease. • Smoking damages blood vessels and can make them thicken and grow narrower. This makes your heart beat faster and your blood pressure go up. Clots can also form. • Blockages caused by smoking can also reduce blood flow to your legs and skin. • Lung diseases caused by smoking include COPD, which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. • Cigarette smoking causes most cases of lung cancer. • If you have asthma, tobacco smoke can trigger an attack or make an attack worse. • Smokers are 12 to 13 times more likely to die from COPD than nonsmokers. Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in your body: • Bladder • Blood (acute myeloid leukemia) • Cervix • Colon and rectum (colorectal) • Esophagus • Kidney and ureter • Larynx • Liver • Oropharynx (includes parts of the throat, tongue, soft palate, and the tonsils) • Pancreas • Stomach • Trachea, bronchus, and lung • Smoking can make it harder for a woman to become pregnant and can affect her baby's health before and after birth. Smoking increases risks for: o Preterm (early) delivery o Stillbirth (death of the baby before birth) o Low birth weight o Sudden infant death syndrome (known as SIDS or crib death) o Ectopic pregnancy o Orofacial clefts in infants • Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. • Smoking can affect bone health. o Women past childbearing years who smoke have weaker bones than women who never smoked, and are at greater risk for broken bones. • Smoking affects the health of your teeth and gums and can cause tooth loss. • Smoking can increase your risk for cataracts (clouding of the eye’s lens that makes it hard for you to see) and age-related macular degeneration (damage to a small spot near the center of the retina, the part of the eye needed for central vision). • Smoking is a cause of type 2 diabetes mellitus and can make it harder to control. The risk of developing diabetes is 30–40% higher for active smokers than nonsmokers. • Smoking causes general adverse effects on the body, including inflammation and decreased immune function. • Smoking is a cause of rheumatoid arthritis. If you quit now, these are the benefits: Quitting and Reduced Risks • Quitting smoking cuts cardiovascular risks. Just 1 year after quitting smoking, your risk for a heart attack drops sharply.2 • Within 2 to 5 years after quitting smoking, your risk for stroke could fall to about the same as a nonsmoker’s.2 • If you quit smoking, your risks for cancers of the mouth, throat, esophagus, and bladder drop by half within 5 years.2 • Ten years after you quit smoking, your risk for lung cancer drops by half.2

Dear lybrate user. The quantity and viscosity of semen depends on many factors including your body's hydration level, stress, frequency of masturbation or sexual intercourse etc. I assure you, quantity or viscosity or semen never determines the quality or sexual performance. Don't worry about it and take care.

I have weak mind efficiency. I learn the things very carefully and forget in the exams. What I have to do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make Your Own Study Notes Taking Notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind Mapping A good Mind Map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation. ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flashcards Using Flashcards is a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: Organising Your Study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a study timetable gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational. ExamTime has a free Study Planner tool which makes organising your study extremely easy. Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text, that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings. That is why ExamTime’s tools allow you to add images. ExamTime’s tools are geared towards helping different types of learners as visual learning is often overlooked in classrooms, which are more text or aural based. Iseful.
