Hi, I was in love for 4 years & she is very caring & loves me a lot. Suddenly I felt am doing something wrong because she use to expect a lot from me but I didn't satisfy her & didn't reached her expectations. Always she fighting for silly things which made me irritate & struggle in my personal & professional life. So I felt not good to disturb her when I can't make her happy so Better to be away. I explained everything but she couldn't convinced. So the gap keep increased & she stopped herself to talk with me. Now, my parents are searching a girl for me but am unable to show interest. I always feel the girl whom I loved is perfect & not able to see any other girl but I couldn't make myself strong to talk with my parents about my girl so depressed & spend more time in smart phone using social websites.

Lybrate-user, let bygones be bygones. I think you should look for a better future with someone who is mature and helps you grow. Until and unless you meet new alliances how will you move on. There is no point going back to the past. The chemistry may will not be there anymore. You must have felt yourself. At last its your decision you know your relationship the best. Get back to me for any query and counseling.

Tips to reduce anxiety and stress 1. Sleep well and regular. Irregular sleep can have some serious consequences. It affects both our physical health and also contributes to anxiety and stress. Anxiety as such also leads to disruptions in sleep. When feeling anxious, always try to get a full 7 to 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep and it can work wonders to improve your condition. 2. Always keep smiling. Take a quick break in between your hectic work to get some laughs with your friends. Laughter can reduce depression and anxiety and has proven benefits. 3. Tidy up your living space or workspace. Keep your things clean and clutter-free. That helps us think clear and thus reducing levels of anxiety. 4. Say thank you often. Expressing your thanks for something helps reduce anxiety. 5. Eat smart. Eating more of foods which are rich in vitamin b and omega-3 fatty acids and also healthy whole grain carbs. Vitamin b contributes to good mental health. While omega 3 fatty acids help with both depression and anxiety. Whole grain foods boost serotonin and helps us remain poised. Eating high-sugar content food and processed foods can increase levels of anxiety. 6. Learn to breathe well and relax. Short, shallow breaths arise when you are tensed. So consciously breathing deeply, plus increasing the duration and depth of breathing helps relax the body and mind to a great extent. 7. Meditate. Meditation has so many positive effects on stress, mood, and anxiety. Club meditation with positive thinking to improve your general well-being and overall health. Yoga is also very effective to take off stress from the body and mind by deep relaxation and breathing techniques. 8. Chill and be silent. Reduce the noise and clutter talk that contributes to anxiety. Find time for yourself and be alone to muse upon your own matters without anyone disturbing you. 9. Worry. Yes, we can cause ourselves to freak out, but only for a certain amount of time. When something weighs heavily on your mind, or you believe something terrible is most definitely going to occur, commit to only creating that worry for 20 minutes. Think of all the possible outcomes of the scenario, figure out some game plans, and then quit thinking about it after 20 minutes go by. Have a friend call after the allotted time has passed to avoid the temptation of going over the time limit. Or schedule some of that playtime right afterward. 10. Plan for the future but do not worry about it. Make time tables and to-do lists so that you will not be worried about finishing stuff and so that you can increase your productivity. 11. Be positive. When you feel anxious, train your mind to think and feel positive and give reinforcement to yourself that you can handle any situation. This will significantly reduce your stress and anxiety symptoms. 12. Smell relaxing stuff. Go out to your garden. Smell a fresh rose. Take a deep breathe and allow the relaxation to course through your whole body. You can also use relaxing aroma therapy and use it indoors. 13. Go out and spend time with your friends and family. Spend time with your pets social support reduces anxiety and stress to such a great extent that it is almost always bearable. So next time you get on your nerves, go out with your friends, chat with them, watch a movie, spend some time watching the waves in the beach with your partner, talk to your siblings. If you have tried all these and still have problems, please consult me for prescription medication.

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 have been getting pressure in head for months and it is daily and constant now. I have tried all sorts! Chiropractor, eye tests, medication.

First of all stop feeling desperate as it will do you no good. Maintain your calm and focus on a healthy solution. It is good that all your reports are ok. There are 2 options- see a psychologist and with each sitting you will feel better because the mental pressure you are experiencing will be reduced by talking out to a professional qualified and trained in handling such cases. But, each sitting will cost you money. 2nd option is to regularly watch and practice what is being taught on astha channel daily 5-7: 30 am and you will very soon get rid of your problem. Plus, it is totally free.

So many things in mind creat insomnia or depression. First you need to relax your body and mind. Don't over think about the situation and take a chill. Things happen for good in life so first except the reality. And secondly start with yoga and pranayama it will definitely help you in attaining your sleep and your thoughts.

I am feeling Killing stress. Some pressure in mind even thought to suicide how can be comfortable.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
I am feeling Killing stress. Some pressure in mind even thought to suicide how can be comfortable.
The word stress is many a times loosely used. You seem to be depressed, as suicidal ideas are present in severe depression. The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated. Your depression needs to be evaluated, if mild option is cbt, cognitive behavior therapy alone or along with medicines, if moderate both, if severe, medication s mainly and later cbt.

Madam, eventhough you may be better as of now, relapse of depression can occur. The medicines help maintain the neurotransmitter balance in the brain. If your history of depression is long, it is advisable to keep meeting your psychiatrist regularly and continue medicine as per instructions. Feeling right now and having a worse episode later may be catastrophic. Its just like immunisation. You can choose not to get vaccine of a certain illness by avoiding the injection but later the consequences are severe.

Anxiety and depression often go together. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

If you need job then join. You have other offers then try. Do not sacrifice for others. Others what they are think about us. It is not important. It is your feelling if you go and ask what they reply to you. You seems to be very sensitive. If it is require then join. Everything it is in your hands. Do not worry and do not think unnecessary matters. My advice is join. As you wish join or not. Ok best of luck.

I was a happy and good minded guy still somewhat I am but its gone bad when somehow I started spending most of my time at home . My cousin gave me all kinds of Hollywood TV series and I was never this guy of giving such time to any kind of series but I started watching them everyday and 5 hours a day . It all started 2 years back . I saw a lot of changes in me at that time , I started going late and I was unable to get rid of it. I started spending giving time to TV series and I started liking it a lot. Because of all this I never felt but I had developed social anxiety issue . I was not believing at first that a guy like me I was use to so confident and had killer instinct , how was I having social anxiety and somewhere still it is present in me . Whenever I have to go out for some work I hated going out . All this was because I started blushing for no good reason . In metro whenever any one use to stare at me I started blushing but earlier it was not a big deal . Even in simple conversation I use to go red and it was awkward very awkward for me . Its been 2 years now I always had fight with it . I never used any drug . Now its much better to some extent but still even today whenever I am put on spot it happens again . I do not know even if I could get rid of it completely . I just want it to be over .

Yes, you can get rid of it completely. This is particularly true, because, in the past you were that way. It can be done either with or without medicines depending upon your choice. F you want a more rapid effect, medicines can be combined with psychotherapy or advanced counseling or behavior therapy. So the bottomline is it is completely possible to make you the way you were earlier. If you only want to take medicines, I will need a few more details like any other medical or psychological problem that you have or may have had earlier, history of bipolar disorder either in yourself and your family. These issues are best addressed in an in person interview, but if it is not possible, a somewhat toned down version can be tried online as well. It is upto you, take care!

Meditation helps greatly. How meditation affects health? it has been scientifically proved that meditation not only helps the mind but also body because controlled mind and purification of consciousness leads to better lifestyle and improved habits of food, sleep etc which in turn leads to better overall health. Most diseases have their roots in uncontrolled mind and impure consciousness. So do transcendental meditation by finding and reading iskcon books, either from internet and/or from your nearest iskcon center.

Dear lybrate-user, please understand your panic disorder well. Stalopam lite needs to be taken for months. Can not be stopped so soon. Please consult your doctor about your disturbance before increasing the dose. You can also add cognitive therapy of knowing the situation of panic attacks, equating your symptoms to grave disease or death etc. For example you have to question whether heart beating is equal to heart attack and death. For that you have to consult more frequently a psychiatrist or a clinical psychologist who is trained in cbt.

Hi lybrate-user, You are suffering from OCD. You need medication as well as psychotherapy from a psychologist to get completely out of this situation, psychosocial management is very important. I would want you to practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Daily 15 minutes morning And evening and whenever thought comes.
