About a month ago I had weed for the first time and had a very bad trip. It lasted for 6-7 days and on and off I could feel that high. After that I started thinking too much which resulted in stress and anxiety. I read it on the net that it can be followed by depression. Even now I Am constantly thinking about that trip and it feels like that feeling hasn't left. I am not very strong mentally and I am not able to control my thoughts. I am soo much into thinking that I do not remember sometimes what I did physically like I picked my phone from the table but I did not remember when. I will not do it again ever. I am very stressed about it and just want to be normal again. Please help.

Weed is chemically cannabis. Unless you use cannabis multiple times it doesnot cause any withdrawal. Your symptoms are only psychological. Your anxiety is an independent compliant by itself and seems unrelated to use of the weed. If you abstain from using weed you would remain free from symptoms that you are worried of. For your symptoms of anxiety consult a psychiatrist fir treatment and counselling.

When I speak to people. They cannot hear my voice properly. They said me that you have bad sound. But in the past I was able to speak clearly but now what has happened with me. I have cough also. What should I do now?

Bachelor of Audiology & Speech Language Pathology (B.A.S.L.P)
Audiologist, Delhi
Go for voice evaluation by an audiologist, because there is something wrong with your vocal system i. E. Infection in larynx due to which you r suffering from dry cough and voice problem, which is unpleasant for listeners. So try to talk less, drink luke-warm water, avoid throat clearing, avoid tea, coffee, too much shouting etc. For voice conservation.

I'm exposed to substances at work that worsen my asthma what can I do to prevent this and also I want to quit my smoking habit.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should talk to your employers about this situation and they are compelled to provide a safe work environment for you. If it is a private organization, you should be careful because not many of them care and your job may be at risk. Even so it is possible to provide an atmosphere of clear and clean air for your work environment, if you requested. But worse than all that is your smoking habit and your employers may become indignant if you continue to sabotage your health with this bad habit while demanding clean environs from the organization! This is a dangerous combination. Smoking directly attacks the respiratory apparatus and your asthma is a respiratory illness. You can ill-afford to continue smoking unless you want to kill yourself early and in a most miserable way! You must seriously take a call and quit smoking now. Here?s how you can go about it: The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. 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. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. Tobacco tar smears the lung surface and causes big patches over time to become dysfunctional. 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. 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

You are so courageous person that you became the strength of your family at such a young age. If you handle your family at the age of only 16 then you can do a lot at this age. * think positive. * do some meditation daily and after meditation speak to your self that I can handle every situation, I have much stamina. *take proper sleep of at least 8 hours. * take balanced diet for healthy mind and body. *share your feelings to your close friend. *take homeopathic aurum met 30, 4 pills twice daily for one week, and kali phos 6x 4 tablet 4 times daily.

Dear Ankur, you should not quit. You should try and try. More and more workouts improves your stamina over a period time. At the same time you should eat good nutritious diet also. Two glasses of milk, three or four eggs, fruits, vegetables should be included in your daily diet. Talk to your trainer. Take care.

Depression - 4 Ways You Can Manage It

Depression - 4 Ways You Can Manage It

Depression is a psychological condition, which can develop in men and women of any age. No one can identify the cause of depression. It can be excessive stress, failure in relationships, academic pressure and various other issues of these sorts. But depression in itself is a serious condition and needs to be treated as soon as possible, lest it aggravates.

Before trying to deal with depression through medicines and counselling, it is important to recognise the signs and symptoms of this condition and try as much as possible to come out of it on your own. There are certain natural remedies, which work during the initial stages of depression. It is only when these fail or it aggravates that the patient must be rushed for immediate counselling. Here are certain natural ways of treating depression.

  1. Sleep well: A sign that you are suffering from depression is lack of sleep. One does not get sleep no matter how hard he/she tries. Even after having sleeping pills, one does not get the correct amount of sleep that he/she requires. This triggers insomnia, thereby causing other health problems to develop. Thus, sleeping is mandatory. If needed, you must force yourself to sleep.
  2. Eat well: It is often said and seen that depression leads you to binge eat or over eat. Overeating would include indulging yourself to too much chips, chocolates, junk food and the like. This would unnecessarily make you gain extra pounds and can trigger obesity. Alternately, it has been seen that the patient lacks the desire to eat anything. This too can lead to adverse effects as the body balance gets disturbed.
  3. Exercise: Regular exercise helps in diverting your mind to something else for a little while. It also helps in keeping you fit and healthy. In case you do not like to exercise, you can opt for jogging or running or even simply taking a walk out in the open. Going out and inhaling fresh air, makes you focus on positive thoughts for a while. A daily dose of positive thoughts can do wonders for you.
  4. Experiment with yourself: Try something new each day that you have not tried ever before. This might include cooking, knitting, riding a bike and the likes. This keeps you busy and keeps your mind off the negative thoughts. What’s more, you might discover some of your hidden talents.

These are some of the natural remedies that you can opt for to fight depression before consulting a psychologist for the same.

How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely Drink, and does our tolerance change with aging? Please advise.

Two drinks a day for a male person is okay subject to his being in good health otherwise and is exercising. Tolerance does change with age: you can stand only lower dozes.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

I am suffering from depression for the last 15 years. I was undergoing treatment in our hospital. After coming to kerala I am under the treatment of doctor from pushpagiri medical college, tiruvalla, kerala. Here they have changed the medicine and I am suffering from side effect of the medicine like dry mouth, throat infection, digestion problem etc.

In treatment of depression what got you better keeps you better, if an antidepressant helped you to recover from depression it is advisable not to change the antidepressant. So go back to your new psychiatrist and tell him your problem they should be able to solve it.

I am a student I always get sleepy during my study and I can not memorise so help me?

Psychologist, Hyderabad
Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person. Please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.
