Dear, first of all you should understand what is depression. You should also understand the difference between disappointment and depression. Also to determine, you should consult a psychologist. Do not self diagnose. I think two or more health related counseling should clear your problem. Please let me know if you are willing for telephonic counseling. Take care.

What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. How wonderful! and engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities feel free revert and we could work together for few weeks to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

I had depression from Aug 2013 and six month before I stopped antidepressants. Till today I don't have any difficulties. But whenever I talk to people I get worried automatically. I seat in people very less and it is very difficult to wake up in morning. I always have tension to meet depression in future. I gain 25 kg weight in 2 years because of treatment.

After antidepressants there is need to take psychotherapy. Medicine will work some time. But the psychological feelings cannot stop. You are feeling insecure feelling. Now you need life style management. If it is possible change yourself. Be think in a positive manner. Be friendly with others. Be share your all feelings with your friends. Be happy all the time. If it is not possible to yourself then take the help of psychologist. Ok all the best. Best wishes.

Dear lybrateuser, -you appear to be quite anxious & disturbed -to reduce your anxiety & fear you should practice yoga, listen to music or learn some relaxation techniques, basically to take some time out from your work & any problem -eat well balanced meals, do not skip meals, if feel hungary then keep energy boosting snacks at hand -limit intake of tea or coffee to 2-3 cups/day -get sufficient sleep about 7-8 hrs a night -take deep breaths to relax your mind -if your chest & arm pain are recurring & disturb you then consult a doctor as investigation like an x-ray may be required.

Hi my dear friend you are assuming things. Always think before you talk. I think there is a problem with your understanding things. Your interpretation of things are wrong. My friend act slowly but positively. I will prescribe you some flower remedy available in all homoeopathy shops. Mix 7 drops of cerato + 7 drops of gentian +7 drops of aspen + 7 drops of larch + 7 drops of star of bethlehem + 7 drops of schleranthus. Mix these with 50 ml water and take every 12 hours for 2 months. You have to develop confidence and strong will power in yourself. Ok do not worry. Everything will be all right.

Hi lybrate-user, Despite some antidepressants’ sexual side effects, your best option for overcoming depression and its negative effects on sex is to get treatment. Beyond medication, you may want to try non-pharmaceutical methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy (a treatment method that addresses negative thoughts while supporting positive behaviors). It may not be an immediate fix, but it’s a worthwhile approach to managing both depression and sex problems. Also, Preliminary research suggests that 20 to 30 minutes of physical activity may be just the libido enhancer you need. In fact, exercise can boost both your emotional health and your sex drive. Exercise gets your blood moving, releases some of the mood-enhancing chemicals that come along with a good workout, and gets your bod into better shape (making you feel better about yourself, too). Anxiety, low self-esteem, and guilt are common causes of erectile dysfunction. Its advised to seek psychotherapy from a psychologist online or in person. All the best.

Hello doctor, i'm in love.She had broken up with me few days before.It was the relationship of 2 years.She left me n now im so depressed,sad,angry.I dont know what to do.I feel like something is missing in my life.Help me please

Our being is made up of several layers of energies over apart from physical body. When you experience 'being in love' a part of your energy gets attached to the loved one and that is why you find it difficult to overcome the effect of separation and loss. You need to withdraw your thoughts and energies from her to reverse this effect and fill up the void created by the loss through meditation. After that you need to work with the after effect of rejection and heal your past personalities who were affected by repeated rejections from others. This will reduce or prevent the recurrence of experience of rejections

Infrared therapy is good for several diseases that is why it is used more in western countries. Anxiety, .Panic disorder are lifestyle disease which requires a lifestyle solution and medicines very rarely. You have to give a detailed history like what do you do for a living what is your education level, financial status, work atmosphere. Home atmosphere your dietary habits, whether you smoke and drink alcohol, are you a non vegetarian how many cups of coffee or tea you drink daily your sleep pattern your exercise pattern how do you relax what is your social activities what tests have been done till now and their results You will require further testing like Vit D, infalammatory marker levels, Mg levels etc All these drugs are addicting and cause withdrawal symptoms if stopped abruptly. Take a consult for specific advice Remeber You have to treat the root cause and not the symptoms.

Dear Lybrate user Right now your feelings and all for her are more important than anything else. Few years later it will not be as important as it is right now and you will regret the time you are wasting. Try to imagine your life few years from today where you could have gotten good marks and a good career but because of this you are not able to do that. Procastination also comes when you are hopeless so plan your study according to the time remaining and your syllabus. Make a schedule and try to follow it very strictly and also tell your family members and friends that you are doing this. Do not disturb you and encourage you if you start getting distracted. Take some break in between and listen some good songs (not sad songs or anything like that) or do something which you are interested in. Take a good sound sleep. Also do some physical exercise for like 15-20 mins in the morning or go for a walk. Reward yourself for small success you get in preparing for the exams. Stay away from everything which distracts you. If you want any help then contact me in private.

Dear, you must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

Your problem is in the tension which you mention and the more you worry about it, the more forgetful and tense you will feel. Deal with your stress and everything will improve. You may do some of the following anyway: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises 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, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. Sine it come to the fag end of your course, you can take some risk and avoid some topics. You may also make some short notes, if it is not too late, and study only those. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, there may or may not be a problem with you, I can not judge you by few lines that you have written. It could be that you are shy and introvert but you need affection also, so what happens you expect other people to be around and give you attention which you enjoy but may be in return you are not able to give them that much, so your efforts are not very evident and it may give impression to others that you are not trying or not interested but you are its just your personality is introverted im sure the right people stay in your life. Consult with me for counseling and therapy.

Recently my friend is passed away. So I'm mentally affect them I'm not normal now. What I do?
The loss of a friend is very difficult to take especially if s/he was a young person. This loss will make you feel sad and you must express this feeling to someone who will lend a listening ear. If you have to weep, please go ahead and do so. Crying is very cathartic to grief. All the thoughts, experiences, good times, the shared moments etc. need to be spoken about and this process may take some time but will be very useful to dealing with this loss. A visit to the family and expressing your condolences and sharing your relationships with the person will be beneficial too. Do not wallow in the misery but make it an expressive and sincere experience. Of course in all this the idea is to move the emotion out of your system, and finish with the grieving. You must realize that eventually you must move on and show more importance to the living and those left behind who also need to complete the process. Attend whatever rituals, memorials, prayer meetings, and ceremonies that are held as a method of finishing with the process of grieving. Once these are all done you must focus on life and move on. The vacuum s/he has left behind must be duly filled by another person after some time and you must feel like you have done adequate justice to his/her memory. You yourself must get back to life with a vigor and into routines that are useful to your well being. You can then carry fond memories and live in peace with that.
