I can imagine, how difficult it must have been for you to continue life without that person. Have you expressed your sadness, grief? please talk to someone about how you feel after losing this person. Talk about your pain of losing that person. Otherwise your suppressed sadness and pain will develop into more negative thoughts and feelings. You will find it difficult to take rational decisions and you will experience additional stress. The more you talk about the lost person and the more you talk about your pain, more is the cognitive acceptance which will help you to move ahead in life" grieving" is a process, not something to'get over' with. And as part of this process, you need to experience the pain. If you don't express your feelings, the grieving process is retarded and the feelings are internalised which manifest themselves in somatic pains like headaches, body aches etc without a good reason. I understand your pain but loss is an integral part of life. It is not something that happens to us as we live, it is life itself. Understand that life will never be the same again for you but there is life ahead, for you. And this life can be good, with purpose and meaningful. Nothing of what is lost is replaced. A meaningful part of an identity and time is never replaced. Give yourself enough time to feel and experience the pain. But then you need to move on. Resolution does not mean forgetting. You will cherish that person's memories for the rest of your life. But you need to learn to" let go" of that relation you had with the person and move on. It is not very easy. But this if life. Take care.

I'm an alcoholic, recently I done my lipids & sgpt test. At present I was advised to take UDILIV 300 twice daily with ROSUVAS F 20 during night only. Every time when I tried to withdraw alcohol I had PANIC ATTACK.

Dear , everyone, one day or other, certainly goes through a negative phase in their life. Due to those their attitude changes. I think you have negative attitude problem. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, thanks for the question. I understand your concerns. I went through the details. Anxiety is a disorder. Not a disease. Mental diseases are usually treated with the help of psychiatric medicines. Mental disorders are treated with the help of psychotherapy, life style changes and relaxation methods. Panic attacks are always due to the underlying anxiety disorders. To clear panic attacks, you need to treat and clear anxiety disorder. Psychotherapy techniques include rational emotive therapy, cognitive behavior therapy etc. You should consult a psychologist for these therapies. In the mean time, you can start physical exercise at least for one hour and breathing exercises for 10minutes daily. I hope this answer satisfies you. I am available for further clarifications. Take care.

Internal frustrated thoughts may cause for anger. Your mother suffering internally so many things. Better to talk to her in a pleasant manner. She will explain her internal thoughts. Love your mother. Trate to her as good friend. She will reveal everything to you. No diet for irritation. If she is not expressed her internal feelings better to mingle to her with her agemates. Then you can ask to them. You know the problem. Internal unhappiness and dissatisfaction thoughts may cause for excessive anger. It is better to consult psychologist. Psychological counselling and relaxation therapy will be much helpful. Better to consult. Best of luck. My best wishes.

I am 26 years old and I am addicted to alcohol from 2-3 years and I tried a lot to quit but I failed. Please give me some type of solution.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear lybrate user, you may need a bit of willpower to stop your habit of drinking alcohol permanently. You could easily abstain yourself from alcohol during the initial 2-3 days. But after few days of abstaining from alcohol you will feel a strong craving to drink just one peg of alcohol whenever you face any tense situation. Here lies your real test. You cannot satisfy yourself with just only one peg. You will need a lot of willpower to resist that craving & face any tense situation without the help of alcohol. Moreover you may feel a slight shivering of your hands after abstaining from alcohol for more than 15 days. However, you can take homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for alcohol.

That is typical depression. You should be proud of yourself, that you are managing your anxiety without much trouble. You are feeling stressful not because of your depression but because either your attitude towards your job or lack of physical activity. I suggest you comprehensive psychotherapy treatment through telephone or online video conference. 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.

I have a good job and life just facing some troubles in love life though oj thinking i dont find them that big. I do self counselling it do works but not for long time.

You seem to be stressed out about some past issues. Self counselling doesn't help much if you are not self aware. Visit a professional counsellor who will help you to gain self awareness and insights into your problems and behaviour patterns. Trouble in love life is a good enough reason to feel depressed but that doesn't mean that you can't deal with it or cope effectively.

Hi Lybrate user Always think positive. Try to think about your abilities. There are lots of different things you can do for improving your brainpower. First of all believe in yourself and your abilities. Do deep breathing exercise daily, it helps our brain to function better. Always eat healthy foods. One of the simplest method to boost our brain function is to keep learning, try to learn something new it gives your brain a workout in the same way that you would do a physical workout to increase your physical strength. Make a list of your strengths for improving your confidence, be brave and challenge your problems, and try to live happy and healthy life. Thanks.

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Hi lybrate-userhere are 6 ways to gain weight healthily: 1. Eating 5 to 6 meals a day in order to gain weight, start eating 5-6 meals a day by breaking them into parts. Eating a lot at once may cause indigestion if the body fails to absorb all nutrients. Eat in small amounts, even if you are not hungry and there will be an increase in appetite from day to day. The aim should be to have a generously portioned breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as two to three snacks in between. 2. Start weight training if you build your muscles through weight training, it will convert the extra weight into lean body mass and also stimulate your appetite. The extra muscle increases the rate of metabolism. When you start exercising you will often experience extreme muscle soreness but it goes away in 3-5 days. 3. Load up on protein besides weight training, a protein-rich diet can help you gain mass. Eating a meal heavy in protein shortly after finishing exercise can be highly effective in adding extra pounds to your body. However, a diet focused only on lean protein is not helpful. It is important to make sure that your diet has plenty of fat in it. Eat foods rich in protein like cheese, meat, eggs, etc to gain weight in a healthy manner. 4. Workout your entire body a lot of people focus only on training the muscles on their arms, chest and shoulders and this is a grave error. Firstly, it will give you a disproportionate body; and it will make you prone to injuries. Therefore, it's important to work out the entire body for a complete and balanced look. 5. Drink your calories to reach the calorie requirement only by eating may be tough. Drinking milk, milkshakes or protein shakes with little or no sugar can be an effective way to load up on the calorie requirements. 6. Be patient and believe in yourself gaining weight quickly in a healthy manner is unrealistic. Every body type is different and it takes months to gain weight. Living healthy by eating the right diet will increase your strength. It is also important to keep following the routine even if you don't see any gains. Caution: junk food and fried foods must be avoided; although have a tendency to add more fat to your body but are very low in vitamins and minerals which are essentially required to keep you really fit.

I feel extremely anxious at times and get very angry and irritated. Have started gym two three days back. However due to gym unable to continue. Too much pressure on me for home tasks and how things are at home which I dislike and my partner unable to understand.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to the forum. There are a few things that can be done in this scenario. As you feel that your partner is unable to understand your problems, and it is important to share your feelings, it may be worthwhile to meet a counselor. If needed, a psychiatric evaluation can then be done to see if medicines are needed or not. At a later stage, it may be useful to get your partner also to therapy so that the counselor/ therapist can work on the relationship issues also. There is no short cut or simple solution to the situation. The above outlined method may appear little challenging but is the best way forward. It is advisable to exercise atleast 3-4 times per week. Do not do it for more than 20 minutes during the first one or two weeks. During the third week or so, you can increase the duration to 30-40 minutes five times a week. This will help a lot. Take care!

Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic exercise with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. Recently they have discovered that moderate consumption of red wine and peanuts do help.
