I am 25 years old, I had my first panic attack on 2nd oct 2016. (my grandma has passed away in sept 2016 at age of 76 she suicided, yet no one knows the reason but she used to say I ll die soon before her death and doc gave her depression tablets, they was no use. I was fine for a month, later I had a small argument with my husband where I told you depress me always. I was thinking over it and that day was my first panic attack took place like I started thinking am I depressed and what even I ll suicide that day onwards till nov 28 I used to get sweat hands and shortness breathing n all. I visited a psychiatrist he suggested me nexito 10 mg after a week I refuse to take as the reviews on net showed they r addictable. I do not want to rely on tabs anyway. Later I joined meditation and zumba and my anxiety reduced to a great extent but thoughts of death and if I see old people I get a feeling they ll die soon how r they still happy? How r everyone happy as they know they ll die one day. That time I get a short breathing prob for secs and m fine in notime. But at times I get a feeling m not enjoying my life thinking about all this cause before I was a brave girl a university topper never feared for anything and now I get a thought its better to die instead of such disturbance n very next sec I say to myself m not a coward no matter what I ll search for solution. Now can I overcome it forever without medication? Or else if I take nexito will I get addicted to it? And r they any chances of getting anxiety again in future? N hows hypnosis or nlp help me?

You are topper and bright student you should trust the process of psychiatric treatment. For sure you have anxiety and it could be Obsessive thoughts also ruminating about past and fear of death. You need to check with a psychiatrist again and give full account of your symptoms. The medication will go on for an year like antibiotics have course so do medication in psychiatry and if you leave in between you may relapse. These medication ate not at all addictive and have no side effects the only effect it will have is your betterment. NLP hypnosis has little role in your treatment. You can however go for psychotherapy cognitive behavioral therapy for ehich you need to consult a psychologist. You can consult me for same. It seems you have co morbid depression also get yourself treated asap. All the best.

Demystifying Depression

Transpersonal Regression Therapy, Integrated HYpnotherapy & Clinical Hypnotherapy, BA - Economics
Psychologist, Mumbai

I am Dr Jimmy Mody practicing in Bombay for the last 17 or more years as a psychotherapist. My training is in psychoanalysis, clinical hypnotherapy, transpersonal regression therapy, CBT and a few other.

Today we are going to talk about demystifying depression, it is a serious condition it's not just in mood swing, it's not a temporary thing, it's not just feeling low down in the dumps so when you start feeling depressed and starts affecting your life in many-many ways your eating, your sleeping, your relationship, even your work then it's about time that you start something about it. It affects about more than 10 to 15% of the entire population and of that only as much as one third of these people actually come for help and why could that be and of the one third that come for help as many as 80 to 90% get help and able to get some relief, within 2 month itself. So this is a lot about depression we need to know.

The causes of depression are not entirely known, but are vary then many typically they could be genetic, they could be biological, they could be a brain chemical, brain function problem, it could be due to a medical illness, it could be psychological or environmental and there are many-many other causes as well. For one thing it is not, it is not due to a personal weakness or personal flaw in your character, we assured of that. Now we need to look at what are the kinds of treatments that you need to go for and I would say that there are three prong approach towards helping you with your depression. You must go for all three of them and not miss anyone of them out. First is you need to consult a psychiatrist, psychiatrist who is a person, who is medically qualified and licenced to give you the medicines necessary to deal with the biological brain function aspects or causes of your depression or the medical illness causes of your depression. Then you need to go to a psychotherapist, he is not licensed to give medicine, so don't talk to him about your medications he may not know much about them. But he is trained in a number of different therapies such as I am, many of which a very good for working on your depression, particularly CBT. CBT has been found to be the best therapy for depression, it's evidence-based and it is empirical proven to have a high success rate higher than the any other therapies. The other thing that you need to do is self help, this is the third prong attack on your depression, is through self help. This cannot be under mind or under stated and self help you have to understand comes first with exercise, yes exercise, your brain has certain chemical called Endorphins and other hormones which get activated when you do a lot of aerobic kind of exercise. So even if you do half an hour walking or vigorous walking or running a day that would be good, that would be important and this is proven and in fact I can explain it to right now, in Prehistoric days when prehistory men and women existed there were no TV’s, no convenience of cars, mobile phones, computers we have to go out into the field and work as farmers or hunter, gatherers. We were much more exposed to exercise then we are today and so it's not surprising that in those days the problem of depression was hardly ever heard or nobody was committing suicide.

So please, I urge you don't take it easy too simple and easy go out and commit yourself half an hour of exercise a day, ok. The next thing that you need to work on is yourself awareness- watching yourself, becoming aware of yourself, witnessing yourself, your thoughts and specially you find it easiest to witness watch and observe those thoughts that constantly, obsessively, persistently repeat. Take some of those thoughts that particularly repeat because they occupy a lot of your minds space don't allow you to think anything else or do anything else, take some others thoughts and just write down a few those thoughts. Look at what you written down, Its either a very general statement which most probably is, sometimes it might be specific. So general statement could be I am a failure, I am not good enough, nobody loves me, from these general statements we need to get little bit more specific.

Why do you feel this way? I am a failure because every time I work really study really hard for exams for school and college I just about manage to escape through, other friends who didn't study as hard as I did, got top marks, I am a failure or you might say I am a failure because I tried one starter Idea and didn't succeeded or I am a failure because every relationship I have been in, my girlfriend my boyfriend whatever has walked out on me, well we need to get more specific and you also need to challenge all of these assumptions that you just made about yourself. Human beings love the act and practice of self evaluation but nobody in school or college ever teaches us how to self evaluate. You must self evaluate not optimistically, you must self evaluate not pessimistically, you must self evaluate realistically. It means take each of these thoughts specially the repeated ones and challenge them challenge the ability, ask them to prove themselves, where is the evidence, is there more to the story or view then not doing well in your college exams, start looking at a larger picture of yourself, start evaluating yourself more realistic leave based on evidence and last but not the least become aware of your cynical thoughts. Nothing is good, nothing is worthwhile, its not good getting up and making an effort to do something for myself, people are like this. People and the government are all corrupt, all industrialist are corrupt, all police man are corrupt, we have a very cynical ideas, all men have only one thing on their mind very cynical idea. Cynicism seeks to destroy any good in you, so we don't want cynicism either. So now these fronts you need to become aware watch and challenge them, challenge them with possible alternative thoughts not positive thoughts, not positive thinking but possible alternative thoughts. What could be the other ways of thinking about yourself, what could be the other ways of evaluating yourself, let's get realistic, let's look for the truth, let’s not jump to assumption and conclusions.

I sometimes feel that I am travelling back in time. Sometimes when I am sad and I try to relax, all of a sudden I feel that for a second or two, I was in place I used to visit earlier, e.g. I was in my hostel room with few friends, or at a friends home, opening slippers before getting inside. These things make me nostalgic. anyway, anytime, I remember something, and then I become sad, thinking of what all I have lost. Does it happen with many people, do they feel that they have travelled back for a few seconds? I am currently not living with my husband since 1 year as he is living abroad, I miss him, living with my parents in my hometown, I have ample time to think about my past, and regret few things, which otherwise I had forgotten when I was with my husband. Am I disturbed internally? Do I need help, as I sometimes get very sad and then I feel that I am worthless and I am counting my life backwards. I feel only my husband understands me and only he can help me from getting distracted.

Hello lybrate-user, Don't feel panic or any fear if you see your past. You can do it because you have strong visualization and it is positive. You can use this sense to create a good present and future of yours. When you want or try to relax try to visualize those things you want in your life at present and in future. Like your husband is with you and you both live happily or you are in abroad with your husband. If you can and want consult with a psychologist near from you. If you want any other help you can contact us.

A relationship which did not work out as per your expectations is likely to cause pain and sadness. Please try to analyse what caused this break up. What was your contribution to it? was it an impulsive decision or a well thought one? who decided to call it off, you both or you/he alone? since you have decided to part ways, something must have really bothered you about the relationship. How you could have handled it better? do you want to patch up? if you want to patch up and if similar situation arises again in future, will you be able to take it? please answer these questions for yourself and decide what you want to do about your future. Also think about how important this relationship is/was for you? give yourself some time to come out of it. Try to be in the company of family and friends who love and respect you. Try to develop a hobby. Respect and love yourself. Failures and disappointments are part of life. Take a firm and rational decision and move ahead.
