My husband is 64 years old, who is anxiety patient, nowadays he has this habit of contacting girls and getting him getting old. To speak with them, he has some issue with it appears he is having some phsycological problems, how can I deal with this issue.

Dear, your husband is already 64 years and he must be knowing what he is doing. My suggestion would be to leave him alone and do not frustrate him by telling the same thing again and again. The more you frustrate him, the more he will repet his problem behavior. For anxiety, behavior therapy could be practised. Please consult a psychologist. Take care.

Hydroxyzine - has anyone else decided to stop all medicine and battle anxiety naturally and spiritually?
Many have done so and successfully too. However, all medical intervention and stoppage must be monitored by the doctor. S/he will know how much dosage can be reduced and when. After careful reduction and your alternative efforts, a gradual and definite reduction may be initiated successfully. A counselor has to be involved to assist you with the other skills that will enable you process the natural ways. Of course your cooperation is absolutely essential for any success.

Symptoms and Causes of Depression

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Symptoms and Causes of Depression

Although confused with natural and temporal feelings of grief or sadness, depression is not merely a weakness or something to be taken lightly. It is quite a serious issue and can last for long periods of time. 

Depression does not merely involve feelings of hopelessness, helplessness, and worthlessness, but is much more terrible and usually has a detrimental effect on your day-to-day functioning.

There are many different types of depression. These include:

1. Major depression
2. Bipolar depression
3. Psychotic depression
4. Chronic depression (even dysthymia)
5. Seasonal depression
6. Substance-induced depression
7. Postpartum depression
8. Double depression
9. Treatment-resistant depression
10. Secondary depression
11. Masked depression

Symptoms: Signs and symptoms of clinical depression can vary depending largely on how severe it is, how long it lasts and how often it comes into play, and differs from individual to individual. While some might experience but a few signs of depression, others might experience more. Here is a list of symptoms that might indicate that you may be suffering from depression:

1. Being depressed for most parts of the day, especially in the morning
2. Feeling guilty or worthless almost every day
3. More inclined towards pessimism
4. Insomnia or hypersomnia
5. Regular contemplations of death or suicide
6. Significant weight gains or weight loss
7. Appetite loss or overeating
8. Feelings of high fatigue and low energy levels almost every day
9. Indecisiveness or impaired focus and difficulty concentrating
10. Lack of interest in almost all daily activities or hobbies, including sexual activity
11. Irritability and restlessness
12. Cramps, headaches and digestive problems which persist even with treatment

Causes: Although the exact causes of depression have not been determined as of yet, depression may be caused by a combination of a number of factors:

1. Biological differences
2. Hormonal imbalances
3. Brain chemistry
4. Inherited traits or genetic disorders.

Its your family matter, you need to stop the cause of shout. First try to avoid dispute dont talk to them much or come for counselling to me, i will understand the prob and will try to solve it out. Try to understand each other every problem arise when we dont understand others. After all they r your parent only not enemy tell them that u dont like their nature realise them.

Hi, first of all the good news for you is that you are not that much pessimist as you are thinking of yourself otherwise you wouldn't have asked here any question. So smile and give yourself a pat on the back:). Secondly get yourself involved in some positive group activities like sports or music. Remember idle mind is devil's workshop. Eat healthy, exercise regularly and have a sound sleep. Make a goal and prepare yourself to achieve it. Make new friends and engage yourself in your hobbies. All will be well soon. You may contact me by asking private question here on lybrate for further discussion.

I am getting anxious very easily nowadays than ever before is this a symptom of any diseases.
Dear Lybrate user. Your anxiety could be due to stress. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

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 or audio/video. please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

Cardiac problems have many risk factors like obesity, hypertension, smoking atherosclerosis, type A personality, depression and so on. So if you are underweight and depressed, you dont have one risk factor, but you still have other. In short, yes, even if you are underweight, depression, stress and anxiety can still influence cardiac health.

Rather than worrying who is apt to treat anxiety neurosis. It is ideal for you to get the severity of anxiety disorder evaluated, if the symptoms are mild, you can be treated by CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) alone or medications. If the symptoms are moderate a combination of CBT and medicines, if severe medications first and after improvement CBT can be planned. Medications are given only by a psychiatrist as well as diagnosis ruling our medical causes for anxiety is done by a psychiatrist. CBT can be given by psychiatrist or clinical psychologist, who are trained in the procedure. Hope this helps you to decide.

I am not able to concentrate on my studies as compared to earlier! Bore hota h padhne ko -_-

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 note and 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: Flash cards:- Using these are 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: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational 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. If you find answer helpful please click on “helpful” tab for knowing my efforts are useful CONCENTRATION TIPS Here’s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can’t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don’t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in’s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren’t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn’t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren’t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don’t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I’ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I’ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can’t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job.

Dear Lybrate user thanks for the query ,every thing happens for reason so there must be some reason for your sadness, may be due to any reason or lonliness or bitter exprience with friends or anyone. We can not make everyone happy its just impossible what maximum any one can do is to make himself/herself happy, and its everyone's right is to be happy we cannot change the thinking of people or situation around us but we can get the things or reasons which make us happy. We get only one life after that we don't know what will happen in future, what we can do is to live every second of life, what do you want to be, what do you want to eat, to do, your career, your friends, your likings etc. Develop some hobby, make some good friends, make yourself busy, as much you will think you will get frustrate and will gain nothing, live only for yourself, and this can be possible when you will involve yourself in some other things first start from joining any hobby class and make any good friend with whom you can share everything .you can take help of any counsellor ,you can also contact me regarding this. Take care.
