You have an anger-related depression and will need immediate attention from a professional. You should first meet with a counselor and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you should do so immediately. You must then work with both professionals until you get out of the depression. Since the depression is of recent origin, the prognosis will be very good if you cooperate. 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.

Hello, being diabetic (even with normal sugar values) predisposes you to multiple conditions like shoulder degenerative tendinopathy, frozen shoulder which causes arm and shoulder pain. It would be better if it is evaluated furthur by proper examination and any investigation if required. Generalized body pain can be due to multiple causes most common being decreased bone strength (osteoporosis). It also requires furthur evaluation.

Role of Nutrition in depression and other mental illnesses

We are able to correlate poor physical health with poor nutrition, but most of us don't relate poor nutrition to poor mental health. In recent times, many researches and studies conducted on healthy and mentally ill people seems to indicate that nutritional deficiency of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, omega 3 fatty acids, carbohydrates play a large role in setting off and maintenance of depression, bipolar, ocd, schizophrenia, suicidal tendencies and anxiety disorders.

A typical indian diet based on western diets is found to be very low in many nutrients, especially essential vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. A notable feature of the diets of patients suffering from mental disorders is the severity of deficiency in these nutrients. Studies have indicated that daily supplements of vital nutrients are often effective in reducing patients' symptoms. Supplements containing amino acids have also been found to reduce symptoms, as they are converted to neurotransmitters which in turn alleviate depression and other mental health problems.

Most prescription drugs, including the common antidepressants lead to unpleasant side effects. This usually causes the patients to skip their medications. Such noncompliance can be detrimental to the patients recovery. On the other hand, long term use of medication can lead to drug toxicity, which in turn can be life threatening for the patient. An alternate and effective way is to start a diet rich in anti oxidants, vitamins, minerals and omega 3 fatty acids which will slowly increase the levels of neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, norepinephrin and gaba, resulting in reduction of symptoms of depression and other mental illnesses. Patients and their families can talk to their psychiatrists, nutritionists and counsellors to guide them through the recommended doses of most nutritional supplements and diets.

1. Omega 3 fatty acids: daily intake of omega 3 in the form of eating fish, olive oil, coconut oil, ghee, sesame seeds, omega3 capsules can produce precursors responsible for producing natural neuro transmitters which will act as anti depressants. Most of the grey matter in the brain is made up of lipids and a diet rich in lipids can enhance the functioning of the brain and mind.

2. Vitamin b complex: poor intake of foods rich in vitamin b has been directly linked to mood swings, depression, anxiety and suicidal tendencies. Diets rich in processed foods, sugars, trans fats are one of the reasons for depression and other mental illness being on the rise. A diet rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, eggs, poultry can be very helpful in improving the levels of vitamin b 1- 12. Here I would particularly lay stress upon vit b 12 and 6 for helping in cognitive functions of focus, concentration, memory, retention and reproduction. This is of particular use to people who engage in high mental activity like students, office workers, teachers, scientists etc.

3. Minerals: the role of minerals cannot be less emphasized in the realm of mental health. Calcium, iron, magnisium, iodine, zinc, lithium all play important roles in the body in their ionic form and protect us from anaemia, thyroid, fatigue, manic and suicidal episodes. Consuming a diet rich in minerals or having their supplements can prove to be very beneficial in recovery or insurance against mental illness.

4. Proteins: proteins are the building blocks of our life and particularly needed for sound mental and brain functioning. All the neurotransmitters in the brain are made up of amino acids which are found in proteins. Having a diet rich in all 20 amino acids may not require a person to take chemical based anti depressants. Dopamine and serotonin can be easily produced naturally in the body and by eating beans, peas, legumes, eggs, milk, honey, fish and poultry.

5. Carbohydrates: it has been observed that diets rich in whole grains and low gi index foods encourage a regulated release of energy in the body which in turn secretes insulin. The correct flow of insulin determines the amount of tryptophan release in the brain. Thus it's advised to avoid high sugary and processed foods which release high amounts of insulin which upsets the brain chemistry and mood regulation leading to poor mental and emotional health.

It is suggested by various studies and researches to include dietary intervention as an important tool for recovery from mental illnesses along with medications, counseling, social support and physical activity.

poor academic performance and Learning disability an eye opener
How often have you reprimanded your child. Write neatly! stop being so careless. Why are you so distracted. You cant remember any thing. You are hopeless at studies. And so on and so forth. Your child could be having a learning disability and you haven't even noticed it. And your young child is emotionally scarred, has lost his/her self confidence and gone into a downward spiral both academically and psychologically.

Today ld is prevalent among 12% of school going children and is often left unnoticed. If identified at an early stage it can be remidiated (if not cured).

Unidentified ld can leave a child emotionally scared and academically backward.

What is learning disability?
Learning disability is a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language -spoken or written, which may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell or do basic mathematical calculations. It is characterised by

B) memory disorders.
C) academic characteristics (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculcia).
D) disorder of listening.
E) disorder of spoken language.
F) visual, auditory, haptic perception deficits
G) motor deficits in fine and gross motor skills

Some common signs of learning disabilities
1) does your child have a illegible handwriting,
2) mixture of cursive and print writing,
3) unfinished or omitted words in a sentence,
4) difficulty mastering rules of language,
5) remembering facts and numbers,

If you notice at least four of the above signs you need to consult a professional.

Dear Lybrate user. The problem you have described is the story of every other person in 20s and 30s today. The world around us has drastically changed since the industrial revolution and more so after the technology boom in 21st century. Today there is no limits to earn but also a huge competition to face. We have created a virtual reality of targets around ourselves and we live every moment to fulfill them. We create goals for every day, every week, every month, every year and justify them by thinking that we want our future secure and happy. But when we achieve the goal we instead of enjoying it and living our present, set another goal to achieve. This is how we forget to live in our present and get stressed out. But I feel that there is something more to your problem which is bothering you and you also quoted that you feel depressed. My suggestion would be to have a detailed interview with a psychiatrist so that a good individualised management plan can be formulated for you. If not possible than you may contact me on Lybrate for detailed evaluation by chat or audio call and I may prescribe you medications. Also in your case Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (counselling) will be helpful. Hoping for your best. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I think you are surrendering to his blackmailing tactics. You have to clearly state the intentions. You want him to study better and score good marks. For that he needs to get rid of mobile and other tv programs. You and he needs it for his future. You have to tell him this and be stubborn. I also suggest online behaviour counselling to your son. Take care.

Muscle aches often respond well to home treatment. Some measures you can take to ease any muscle discomfort from injuries and overuse include: resting the area of the body where you are experiencing aches and pains taking an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as ibuprofen applying ice to the affected area to help relieve pain and ease inflammation.

Hello doctor, my wife is a depression patient & she is taking medicine viz. Peri Cr 12.5mg & clonax 0.25mg once a day. Now she is around 12 weeks pregnant. We are worried about, are these medicines safe at this stage for my wife as well as for our baby.

Basic Life Support (B.L.S), Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Hi, good presence of mind to confirm risks of medications! Congratulations! Clonax 0.25mg needs to be immediately stopped as it can be harmful to growing baby. Pari-CR is NOT ENTIRELY safe, but depending upon your wife's symptom improvement & severity of her depressive illness. It can be continued with strict observation like 2 monthly ultrasound & some other blood tests. So contact your Ob/Gynecologist & discuss about these tests & your wife's current condition. Also keep your wife's Psychiatrist informed about her pregnancy & current status as Depression tends to flair up during last 2 months of pregnancy or immediately post delivery. You can also contact me for further help. Good Luck!

I want to avoid mental tensions. Can you please let me know the best way to avoid tensions.
Learn to use the replacement method, of changing every negative thought, as it arises, into a positive thought. Don't fight negative thoughts, just divert your attention a positive thoughts or mental images. Write down and keep a list of inspiring and uplifting quotes, and read them several times a day. Think positive and inspiring thoughts before falling asleep. Though it might not be so easy, try to keep an attitude inner detachment in dealing with difficult or unpleasant people. Don't take too personally their remarks or criticism. Don't watch thrillers or action movies on tv before going to bed or falling asleep. Reduce the number of times you listen to the news on the radio or tv. Know what is going on in the world, but there is no need to constantly fill your mind with news that cause you stress or fear. Repeat positive affirmations several times a day. Do so also when you experience stress or fear. -" I feel peace and tranquility filling my mind and body. -" my mind is calm, like a lake on a quiet summer day. -" I feel calm relaxed and peaceful. -" I am a center of peace, calmness and happiness.

Hi doctor, I am a 13 years old girl. I always get angry with everybody when someone shouts at me or scold me. I always get angry for silly reasons and I can't control my anger at that time. What will I do for it? how will I control my anger?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You don?t have to control your anger; you must learn to express it properly. However, there may be a problem with how angry you get and for small reasons too. Since you are already displaying so much anger at such an early age, it indicates that there was something that had happened in your early childhood, including prenatal life, which is contributing to this situation. Your mom will know what that is all about, and equipped with that information meet with a counselor soon. When such signs come in early adolescence, it is advisable to take care of it promptly. In fact it will be easier to work on it now than later when the anger behavior will be too entrenched to remove easily. In the meantime go for regular and vigorous exercise daily, preferably the aerobic kind. Also you must introspect whether you are actually scared but choosing to act angry because it is a power feeling compared to being in fear. In that case you need to handle the fear and not the anger and your problems will cease to trouble you. Even so you must then find out about why there is so much fear in your life at this stage.
