Sounds to me like you are into an anger related depression. If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back, if you are not already married. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Causes, Symptoms and Treatments of OCD

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Causes, Symptoms and Treatments of OCD

OCD or obsessive compulsive disorder is a mental condition, which traps people in a cycle of repetitive thoughts that push them to do repetitive behaviors. As the name states, the obsession over certain things compels them to do it over and over again. These actions will only help you feel relieved for a short time and soon the cycle starts back again.

Symptoms of OCD: 

The symptoms of OCD are classified into two groups, one for the obsessive behavior and the other for compulsive behavior. Some of the common symptoms for these are mentioned below:

Obsessive behaviors:

As the name states this means obsessing over certain things, which varies from person to person. Some of the things could be:

  1. Being scared about making mistakes
  2. The fear of being embarrassed in public situations
  3. Constantly being scared about contamination by germs, microbes or dirt
  4. Doubts about sure and simple situations and the need to be constantly reassured about them

Compulsive behaviors

The obsessions usually results in compulsive behaviors, which you may need to perform to reassure and relieve yourself of the anxiety temporarily. Some of these may include:

  1. Trying to constantly arrange things in a certain way and still not being satisfied
  2. Thoughts, words and images being stuck in your head throughout the day that may keep you disturbed and cause to lose sleep
  3. You may even repeat specific words or actions multiple times as a measure of self reassurance.
  4. Hoarding of items, which have no value

Causes of OCD:

Biological factors: Certain chemical imbalances in the brain may lead to OCD, which may happen due to hormonal or biological changes. In fact certain infections are also known to trigger OCD in people.

Environmental factors: Certain types of mental trauma have been known to trigger OCD as well, such as

  1. Office, school, college or other work related stresses over a long period of time
  2. The passing away of a near and dear one
  3. Relationship problems
  4. Repressed abuses from earlier in life

Treatments: 

Most treatments of OCD are categorized into two types:

  1. Cognitive behavioral therapy: This is a counseling based therapy where you may be slowly asked to face your fears and overcome them over a period of time.
  2. Medications: Antidepressants, inhibitors, or antipsychotic drugs or relaxants in various combinations may be used to treat OCD.
  3. Electroconvulsive therapy: Only in the rarest of cases would doctors consider electroconvulsive therapy, if the patient is a danger to themselves or others around them.

Dear Sir, I am doing chartered accountants course in Chennai. I am not yet completed my inter label, due to my family problem and my age is now 26. Now my family is fine & my elder brother giving money for my study. But when I am reading, to my mind past problem of my & my family coming. I am feeling emotional & why not yet completed my inter label making me and my mind weak and again my hostel siner boys talling me, why are you not going for a job. But I want to study. Please help me how to forget all & concentrate on my study as my exam is starting in may 3rd 2015. Thank you.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I think that your hostel friends are giving you good advice. If you are not able to concentrate and you keep thinking of the past and the family situation, then it is better for you to work somewhere. At work you will be compelled to concentrate on the job. Sometimes it is better to take a break from your studies due to the distractions you experience. You can still do your inter, by studying in the evening. You may also go for tutorials, which will aid you in studying. This will entail some costs for which you need to work. Do not waste your brother?s hard-earned money, if you are not doing justice to it. There are a lot of youngsters who work and study. I think you need help in your studies, if not from tutorials, ask some of your friends to help. You may have a mind block that is hampering concentration.

I have this problem of not being able to concentrate on one thing for a long time but my main concern is not being able to concentrate on studies, for example I'm studying and if some guy pops up and starts talking or plays music, it immediately diverts my attention towards that thing, please provide some remedies doctor.

There are no success formulas. If you have a sense of commitment then nothing in this world can distract you! make up your mind, have a definite goal and create a plan to work towards that goal. You can politely tell you r friends or anyone else that you need to study. People respect you only if you are sincere! so if you sincerely ask people not to disturb you, they will appreciate you. Wish you the best.

I am sorry for your loss. It is normal to feel depressed for few days. Share it with somebody close and do not isolate yourself. Make new friends or spend more time with existing ones. If the problem persists for more than a month, consult a psychiatrist. Remember to eat and sleep properly.

How to Help Yourself If You Are Depressed

Bachelors in Psychology, Masters in Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance and Counselling
Psychologist, Jalandhar
How to Help Yourself If You Are Depressed

remember, positive thinking will replace the negative thinking that is part of the depression and will disappear as your depression responds to treatment. 

let your family and friends help you. 
Depressive disorders make one feel exhausted, worthless, helpless, and hopeless. Such negative thoughts and feelings make some people feel like giving up. It is important to realize that these negative views are part of the depression and typically do not accurately reflect the actual circumstances. Negative thinking fades as treatment begins to take effect. In the meantime:

set realistic goals in light of the depression and assume a reasonable amount of responsibility. 

break large tasks into small ones, set some priorities, and do what you can as you can. 

try to be with other people and to confide in someone; it is usually better than being alone and secretive. 

participate in activities that may make you feel better. 

mild exercise, going to a movie, a ballgame, or participating in religious, social, or other activities may help. 

expect your mood to improve gradually, not immediately. Feeling better takes time. 

it is advisable to postpone important decisions until the depression has lifted. Before deciding to make a significant transition change jobs, get married or divorced discuss it with others who know you well and have a more objective view of your situation. 

people rarely" snap out of" a depression. But they can feel a little better day-by-day. 

remember, positive thinking will replace the negative thinking that is part of the depression and will disappear as your depression responds to treatment. 

let your family and friends help you.

Hello, Over the past couple of year I have developed high level of anxiety mostly when it comes to my physical appearance and sometimes when I think about my future. I am currently working in a service based company in Bangalore and my salary is below the average as compared to national average (around 20K per month). There are other things like when I came to Bangalore I literally saw number to girls having multiple sex relationship and they don't feel guilty about it. Now that's my opinion, I may be wrong but again I don't like such women's. That being said sometime I feel bad for people who are married to women's like that. Is it normal that I having such thoughts or it's inappropriate. One more thing I would like to say is that I believe I have as much potential as others do but every-time I fail to recognise it. I think I have failed my parents and they are not happy with me. And last but not the least PHYSICAL APPEARANCE. I have been told or say reminded by a lot of people that I am UGLYand even I think that is true because honestly no girls give a damn about me, every-one simply ignores me. Please I need help. I can't live with these thoughts any longer. Regards,

You need to grow up. Any adult having consensual sexual relationship with another adult is not wrong, since women are more expressive about their sexual needs, being in a cosmopolitan city like Bangalore, you need to accept these facts and should not judge them morally. Regards to your potential, since you r very confident, good, use that as a ladder and work hard in a proper way and start earning more. Do not be fixed with a company, if you r doing well, send feelers to other companies and if they pay more jump, this is how you can come up. Also you r parents may not judge you bad, for all or most their kids are their own and remove the negative thoughts. Regarding your appearance, even ugliest people r becoming superstars in movies, so atitude matters, carry and dress in a manner so people adore and respect u. All the best.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

I am engaged with my boy friend and getting married soon. I have 10 years of relationship with my boy friend. We both love each other so much. But he is very aggressive . He abuses me . I am addicted to him badly. Whta shayd I do.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
You must learn to be assertive. Learn to say no when it is needed. This does not mean that you are disregarding him. Each person is made of many different aspects, rejecting a small part does not mean rejecting the entire person. So let him know that you love him dearly but you cant stand the abuse and aggression. Give him more attention when he is being nice to you. ignore him when he becomes abusive. It is important not to offend him or confront him as a person but to convey to him that your objection is to a particular act of his. You have every right to do it.

Hi lybrate-user, 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 for 15 minutes. Consult a psychologist for counseling.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tension during and before examination is called performance anxiety. To overcome exam related performance anxiety, you should know yourself, your subject, exams and your study patterns. Once you study systematically and to the point, there is no need to be panic before or during the exams. “Effective learning” techniques should help you. Take care.

Why we can't divert our mind in anything else why we just things only one thing continuously.

M.Phil clinical Psychology, MS Psychotherapy and Counseling, PGDGC, MSc Psychology
Psychologist, Chennai
The simple fact is that your intense intention to divert your attention itself serves as a reminder to think about it. so don't try to forcefully divert your thoughts. instead involve in some physical activities associated with your areas of interest. socialize more. if you still find it difficult to get over the problem there is also a possibility that you are having obsessive compulsive disorder with predominant repeated thoughts. so consult a psychologist
