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,

You can control your anger by taking those suggestions as complement and work hard in the direction of decreasing your weight so that one day all those people will feel proud of you----------------to control anger for that particular time, do not let those verbal comments engulf your mind because you really have a big problem of overweight and you should think and work positively in this direction---------------

Nervousness seems to have immense adverse impact in your life & in your day to day functioning too, with negative impact in your studies & so frustration had started developing in you. The symptoms you are suffering from indicate that you are having excess anxiety within, & you even panic in some situations. Anxiety is a state which is characterized by unpleasant feeling of nervousness, uneasiness or worry, with lots of emotional turmoil within, leading to nervous behavior. It a normal emotion which occurs in response to any stress & it resolves spontaneously when the stress is gone. Everyone experiences anxiety now & then to some extent .But it is a disorder if the anxiety is very distressing, difficult to cope with, affects day to day functioning & disrupts normal life of a person. In Anxiety disorder the affected person experiences various symptoms, which include: •Feelings of panic, fear, and uneasiness •Sleep disturbance •Palpitation or rapid heartbeat •Cold or sweaty hands or feet •Shortness of breath •Restless feeling •Tingling sensation or numbness in hands & feet •Dizziness •Vomiting tendency •Stiffness of body •Dry mouth •Butterflies in stomach, a state where the person feels certain discomfort in stomach •Problem with thinking clearly, concentrating & distraction, leading to forgetfulness •Indigestion & abdominal pain •Frequent urination •Feeling weak or tired •Headache •Having a sense of impending danger, panic or doom •Lightheaded. Anxiety Disorder may be: 1. Specific, in which the anxiety occurs in response to specific stress. 2. Generalized Anxiety disorder where there may be no specific triggering factors, & the anxiety symptoms are present all the time. 3. Secondary to physical illnesses like Heart disease, Diabetes, Thyroid problems such as hyperthyroidism, certain Respiratory disorders, Drug abuse or withdrawal, Chronic pain or irritable bowel syndrome, certain tumors that produce hormone imbalance etc. 4. Sometimes anxiety can be a side effect of certain medication. 5. A person may also get Panic attack, which is sudden episodes of anxiety lasting few minutes, when the person gets intense anxiety symptoms. It usually occurs without any triggering factor. The Anxiety or nervousness you are suffering from is usually triggered by stressful situations like exam time. Get yourself evaluated by a Psychiatrist, who will prescribe you medicines or advice you counseling sessions accordingly. The two main treatments for anxiety disorders are psychotherapy and medications or a combination of the two. Along with, take the following measures: •Lead a healthy lifestyle. Go for a walk, exercise regularly, do some yoga or relaxation techniques daily. •Have adequate sleep. •Explore your own talents & feel good about yourself. •Set goals which are realistic & within your capability & try to pursue them. •Maintain a daily routine. •Stay away from substance of abuse like alcohol, cannabis, inhalants, drugs etc. •Enhance your coping skills & problem solving skills. •Spend time with friends, family members or well wishers with whom you feel comfortable & positive. •Rest in a dark room. •Practice deep breathing & relaxation exercises •Eat healthy food & reduce caffeine, tea, cola, and chocolate consumption. During exam it seems you experience intense anxiety symptoms that affects your performance in exam. The underlying anxiety is leading to your forgetting the answers you prepare well, impairs your concentration & thinking, leading to your slow & unsatisfactory performance. Excess anxiety also temporarily block one’s thinking, judgment & decision taking capacity because of which you fail to recollect your answer spontaneously, nor could see your mistakes even after revision. Seek professional help early. With medications & counseling sessions, you will definitely come out of this problem. Take following measures to deal with the nervousness during exam: •Start studying early & study daily from the start of your academic session •Revise your lessons regularly •Have a plan to manage your time of study •Study relaxly with a calm mind & take small breaks during studies. •Be confident of yourself & do not compare yourself with others. •If you feel stressed while studying, talk to someone, listen to some music or do something that relax you. •Create the environment in your study room similar to your exam hall. Then you will find your exam hall comfortable & familiar. •Expect exam outcomes rationally & what is within your capability. Impractical & Over expectation that is beyond one’s capability brings in fear & frustration. •Take your class time seriously by taking notes summarizing what your teacher has said. •During the days of preparation for exam eat healthy, stay hydrated & avoid substances of abuse, as a healthy body prepares a healthy mind. •On the day prior to exam sleep adequately. •Reach the examination hall before time so that you are relaxed & mentally prepared for the exam. Do not guess the exam outcomes just target to give your best. Think positive. Start writing with a calm mind. Be aware of the anxiety symptoms, & if you feel anxiety is building up, just concentrate on breathing in & out slowly or tighten & relax your shoulders or stretch your legs. You can also take a small break & drink some water •Do not look around; just concentrate on your paper. •Revise quickly once you finish answering. It’s a good quality to be sensitive, but it never good to be over sensitive, as it starts affecting your normal functioning. One should always enhance one’s good qualities & try to overcome one’s bad qualities. From others one should take their good & ignore their bad. Deal with criticisms by others in a matured way. If anyone scolds you, criticize you or tells something that hurt you, rather than reacting or feeling bad, first ponder over it & think deeply. If you find out that whatever said has some reality & some fault was in you then rectify it & try not to repeat it. & if you find out it was only a baseless criticism, then meet the concerned person & politely explain the fact. If someone younger to you behaves immaturely, you should reply maturely. Then they will look high on you. If you also behave the same way they did, no healthy solution will come; rather the problem will increase further. Retaliating with physical violence is never a healthy way of solving problem. Violence attracts more violence in return.

8 Symptoms Of Early Childhood Trauma!

8 Symptoms Of Early Childhood Trauma!

The problem of early childhood trauma refers to disturbing experiences that take place in children during 0-6 years of age. The traumas that young children experience can be the effects of natural disaster, war or accidents or that of intentional violence like sexual abuse, domestic violence or physical abuse.

How Does this Condition Impact Childhood?

Traumatic events have a significant impact on your child's life and can break his sense of safety. The problem has been linked with a decrease in the size of the brain cortex. This is the part of the brain that controls several complex functions like thinking, consciousness, memory, attention, awareness, and language. The changes that occur as a result can affect your child's IQ as well as his or her ability to control emotions. As a consequence, he or she may harbor feelings of danger and become more afraid or it may manifest in other personality issues which are not very obvious.

How do you identify this condition?

Generally, children who suffer from traumas face problems in regulating their emotions and behaviors.

They may display signs like:

- Fear of new situations
- Being clingy to their parent(s) or somebody close
- Become easily frightened
- Display aggressive and/or impulsive behavior
- Are difficult to comfort
- Display deterioration in behavior and functioning
- Easily forget newly attained developmental skills
- Difficulty in sleeping

Depending on the age during which your child may go through a traumatic event, he or she can exhibit signs relevant to his or her age.

For instance:

Children aged 0-2 years may also display reactions like poor verbal skills, memory problems, excessive temper, experience nightmares, etc.

On the other hand, children aged 3-6 years can face difficulties in learning as well as develop poor skill and learning disabilities, face problems in social interaction, may be unable to trust people and so on.

If this condition remains unattended or unresolved for longer, it may create personality issues and can deeply impact the individual's relationships, or equations in the society, as they grow up and even after they become adults. In fact, many behavioral problems can be traced back to childhood trauma. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Depression - How To Manage It?

Depression - How To Manage It?

Depression, a psychological condition marked by sadness, lethargy, exhaustion, helplessness and hopelessness can develop among men and women of any age, at any point in their lifetime. It is difficult to pinpont the exact cause of depression, however, financial setback, failure in a relationship, academic under-performance, vocational under-achievement and several other socio-economic stressors of this sort are known to cause Depression how we know it in current times. 

Prolonged and untreated Depression can compromise the depressed individual's immunity making them vulnerable to several other health problems. Therefore, one must make efforts to get out of a depressed mode as soon as possible. While dealing with feelings of sadness it is important to accept one's condition, identify the reasons behind those feelings and try as much as possible to come out of it using one's own efforts. In order to recognise your stressors and work your way around those you must- 

Sleep well: While you are resting through various stages of sleep your body is getting ready to take on more life for when you wake up and get going. A good night's sleep rejuvinates the body and repairs the day-to-day wear-and-tear that the body undergoes. Not getting enough rest on the other hand can lead to many health problems, further worsening a depressed person's condition. Therefore, sleeping is important. If needed, you must force yourself to sleep. 

Eat well: A depressed person might binge eat and/or over eat or avoid food altogether. Many clinically depressed people report indulging themselves in foods like chips, chocolates and such other high-calorie foods. Such an eating pattern will lead to weight gain and predispose one to obesity and obesity-related health problems. Alternately, if one lacks the desire to eat anything, then, this too can lead to adverse effects as the body's nutritional balance gets disturbed. So, make an effort to keep your body nourished at all times. 

Exercise: Regular exercise is very useful in that it acts as a diversion from stressful or negative thoughts and also helps in keeping the body active. In case you do not like to exercise, you can opt for jogging or running. Even a simple walk out in the open can be beneficial. Going out, inhaling fresh air, connecting with the nature can all help shift focus onto the positive aspects of life and enhance the quality of your thoughts. Small windows of positive thoughts in one's daily life can do wonders for anyone. 

Keep yourself engaged: Engaging in activities that one doesn't do every day can distract your mind and also make you creative as well as productive. Such activities might include gardening, painting, cooking, riding a bicycle and the likes. While engaging in such activities can keep you busy, keeping your mind off from wandering to catastrophic thoughts you might even discover some of your hidden talents in the process. 

Trust in your abilities: No one is perfect and many times one's social, economic and/or physical conditions are not contributing favorably in achieving one's ambitions and desires. In such conditions it is important to focus over what one is capable of doing and making earnest efforts at making the best out of one's situation. Sooner or later change will occur. These are some of the ways you can use to fight away depression. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

Dear. Adolescent minds are always lazy and wandering. This happens because of their hormonal imbalance. They need constant motivation and appreciation. Parents cannot give the motivation because adolescent people do not accept such motivation. You can learn to appreciate your son even in small positive tasks. Motivation should be given by psychologists like me. You may consult a psychologist online. Take care.

Solutions that can save a relationship. Communication all relationship problems stem from poor communication, you can't communicate while you're checking your blackberry, watching tv, or flipping through the sports section" sex even partners who love each other can be a mismatch, sexually, lack of sexual self-awareness and education worsens these problems. But having sex is one of the last things you should give up" sex" brings us closer together, releases hormones that help our bodies both physically and mentally, and keeps the chemistry of a healthy couple healthy" problem-solving strategies: plan, plan, plan. Money problems can start even before the wedding vows are exchanged. They can stem, for example, from the expenses of courtship or from the high cost of a wedding. Problem-solving strategies: be honest about your current financial situation. If things have gone south, continuing the same lifestyle is unrealistic. Don't approach the subject in the heat of battle. Instead, set aside a time that is convenient and non-threatening for both of you. Acknowledge that one partner may be a saver and one a spender, understand there are benefits to both, and agree to learn from each other's tendencies. Don't hide income or debt. Bring financial documents, including a recent credit report, pay stubs, bank statements, policies, debts, and investments to the table. Don't blame. Construct a joint budget that includes savings. Decide which person will be responsible for paying the monthly bills. Allow each person to have independence by setting aside money to be spent at his or her discretion. Decide upon short-term and long-term goals. It's ok to have individual goals, but you should have family goals, too. Talk about caring for your parents as they age and how to appropriately plan for their financial needs if needed. Struggles over home chores most partners work outside the home and often at more than one job. So it's important to fairly divide the labor at home. Problem-solving strategies: be organized and clear about your respective jobs in the home" write all the jobs down and agree on who does what" be fair so no resentment builds. Be open to other solutions, she says if you both hate housework, maybe you can spring for a cleaning service. If one of you likes housework, the other partner can do the laundry and the yard. You can be creative and take preferences into account -- as long as it feels fair to both of you. Not making your relationship a priority if you want to keep your love life going, making your relationship a focal point should not end when you say" I do" relationships lose their luster. So make yours a priority. Problem-solving strategies: do the things you used to do when you first met. Show appreciation, compliment each other, contact each other through the day, and show interest in each other. Schedule time together on the calendar, say" thank you" appreciate" it lets your partner know that they matter. Conflict occasional conflict is a part of life. The same lousy situations keep repeating day after day -- it's time to break free of this toxic routine. When you make the effort, you can lessen the anger and take a calm look at underlying issues. Problem-solving strategies: you and your partner can learn to argue in a more civil, helpful manner. Make these strategies part of who you are in this relationship. Realize you are not a victim. It is your choice whether you react and how you react. Be honest with yourself. When you're in the midst of an argument, are your comments geared toward resolving the conflict, or are you looking for payback? if your comments are blaming and hurtful, it's best to take a deep breath and change your strategy. Change it up. If you continue to respond in the way that's brought you pain and unhappiness in the past, you can't expect a different result this time. Just one little shift can make a big difference. If you usually jump right in to defend yourself before your partner is finished speaking, hold off for a moments. You'll be surprised at how such a small shift in tempo can change the whole tone of an argument. Give a little; get a lot. Apologize when you're wrong. Sure it's tough, but just try it and watch something wonderful happen" you can't control anyone else's behavior" the only one in your charge is you" trust trust is a key part of a relationship. Do you see certain things that cause you not to trust your partner? or do you have unresolved issues that prevent you from trusting others? problem-solving strategies: be consistent. Be on time. Do what you say yent. Be sensitive to the other's feelings. You can still disagree, but don't discount how your partner is feeling. Call when you say you will. Call to say you'll be home late. Carry your fair share of the workload. Don't overreact when things go wrong. Never say things you can't take back. Don't dig up old wounds. Respect your partner's boundaries. Don? t be jealous. Be a good listener. Even though there are always going to be problems in a relationship you both can do things to minimize marriage problems, if not avoid them altogether. First, be realistic. Thinking your mate will meet all your needs -- and will be able to figure them out without your asking -- is a hollywood fantasy" ask for what you need directly" next, use humor -- learn to let things go and enjoy one another more. Finally, be willing to work on your relationship and to truly look at what needs to be done. Don't think that things would be better with someone else. Unless you address problems, the same lack of skills that get in the way now will still be there and still cause problems no matter what relationship you're in. Good luck.

General Physician,
Feeling drowsy and sleepy can be due to hypothyroidism and need check up .7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.
