How would one know if he or she suffer from chronic depression?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
If some one is feeling low all the time, not able to enjoy, confidence comes down, not able to sleep well, appetite and sex drive comes down. Feeling helpless hopeless and worthless, thought of death and suicide. Not able to concentrate in anything feeling weak. If such sunrooms are there for more than 2 weeks then we can diagnose depression.

Please advice me medicines, so as to get good rather pleasure feeling, take sound sleep and get inspired to involve in the work. I am getting no hand to assist me.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, I think the very first thing you need to do is to speak to your lawyer. Talk about it with your friends and relatives who can actually speak with your kids and make them understand that it is their father's property and they do not have any right on it and teach them their responsibilities towards parents. You are already a strong person by doing all which you have mentioned. You just need to trust yourself and stop worrying. No body can snatch what you own. If it still threatening you can speak to a lawyer and take some NGO's, Society or Police's help. Thank

I am smoking from last two years and now I want to quit smoking so now please suggest me how can I quit smoking successfully?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

I met a girl few months ago on social site. We spoke friendly way for someday. She started calling me, texting me every day, one fine day she called me up in the morning. First time I went to meet her she told me that she wants to come home with me, I was not very interested in her so I denied and dropped her home at night. Then she started calling me, texting me every day, she called me and came to my house, this time she kissed me (No intercourse at all) and started flirting with me. I don't know why but I also started responding to her. After that we started meeting up in week ends for next 3-4 weeks, talking over the phone at night. But before that I had lover so I told this girl that I am planning to get married soon. So I told lets not love or do marriage and she told me its fine we can speak upto your marriage and we can drop. But I did not say exact marriage date to her. I told a date month after. But after that she found it from my fb id that I got married a month before. So now she feel cheated I guess. So she is black mailing that I will say everything to your wife and destroy your life. What should I do? I apologized for everything to her and still she is ruining my life and I feel like hell.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS

Dear, thanks for sharing your problem. I will try to help you. Look, in your case it appears that your mind remains pre-occupied with some thoughts and as a result you often can not pay attention to desired events, tasks. These thoughts may be worries, apprehension or mind pleasing. Such a thing can happen with any body. If you remember that you forget, it means your memory is ok, your mind seems to be elsewhere for the time. You may be stressed/ depressed and may be thinking about past/present/future excessively. If so, you need a psychiatric consultation to rule out anxiety/ stress.

Hello lybrate-user, its sad to loose somebody close, of course this pain can never be healed completely. But one has to carry his life forward in a happy manner. Usually after 3 months people tend get recovered from the loss and do not feed sad. Since you are still having these symptoms you may need therapy in form of counselling sessions or medicines. More so, if this is effecting your daily routine and work, you do need treatment.

I am getting anxious very easily nowadays than ever before is this a symptom of any diseases.
Dear Lybrate user. Your anxiety could be due to stress. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the “fight-or-flight” response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as “acute stress,” can be exciting—it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or “chronic stress,” can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. Physical exercise, creative activities, deep breathing, being away from the situation for sometime etc can help you tackle the stress. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some psycho therapy methods. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Hi, Thinking about sex is perfectly natural. We're hormonal, sexual beings, whose genes drive us to procreate. But sometimes, sexual thoughts can become overwhelming, making it difficult to focus and difficult to get simple things done. However, it's possible for those urges and desires to become more like background noise as you go through your everyday life, especially when you should be thinking more about career, education, health, interests and hobbies, family and friends, money, etc. Get rid of pornographic videos, magazines, calendars, and other materials in your house and, to the best of your ability, avoid watching it. Find something to do immediately as a diversion. If you're always dwelling on sex during idle bus rides, for example, make a special effort to do something else during your ride, like finishing some homework, reading a new book, or talking to a friend. Or, if you start thinking about sex at boring points in a class, a meeting, or at work, for example, you might start taking notes. By keeping your pen moving, you'll have to stay focused on the conversation at hand and not what's going on in your mind. Make a commitment to yourself. Make a minimum goal to curb your sexual thoughts so that they don't distract you from your other daily activities, such as work or school, and commit to it. If you need help remembering your commitment, wear a piece of jewelry or a simple string around your wrist that will remind you to power through the temptation to get lost in sexual thought. Tell someone about your goal. Telling a trusted friend or family member about your efforts is a good way to help you stay accountable. Have them check in with you regularly to see that you’re doing okay and to provide help or suggestions, if needed. Reward yourself for keeping your commitment. This should be pretty straightforward. You could reward yourself with a favorite dessert, a shopping trip, or something else you like. Exercising is healthy itself, but it also does a few specific things that help damper sexual preoccupations. Exercise can be engrossing and distracting, and when you work out hard enough, other distractions have a tendency of receding into the background. Exercise provides a natural endorphin rush. Endorphins provide a generally good feeling, and help relieve depression. During sex, endorphins are also released, along with other chemicals like the hormone oxytocin. Ergo, exercise can be a good substitute for sexual activity. 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. Consult for psychotherapy.

Introspect and understand your capacity and take responsibilities accordingly, plan and schedule your activities. Identify your time wasters and control it. Take intermediate breaks to relax yourself. Delegate your work, spend time with your family in a friendly manner. Spend some time everyday on physical exercise and entertainment. Very simple steps but gives extraordinary results.

Whenever things goes against my wish I get angry and want to kill that person. What to do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I understand that you get angry when things go against you but to want to kill at that time is grossly wrong. You must check out where this level and kind of anger comes from. I suspect it is from your childhood. You should meet with a counselor and do some anger management classes. Anger should be expressed always but in appropriate ways only. Anyway, you must do vigorous exercise everyday and that will expend the energy and leave you with the memory to deal with. You will also need to check whether you are acting angry when you are really scared. In that case you are escalating anger over the fear to cover it up. This will not deal with the fear and you will need to investigate that and deal with that instead. It is not advisable to ‘ruminate’ over this feeling as it will feed into an impulse and you may lose control over that and do something inappropriate. None of the feelings are to be controlled. The way you express them has to be appropriate. Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands; scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. Unexpressed feelings will hurt you back by clinging on to a favorite organ and troubling it enough to cause it to malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. You can also hand over the feeling to God, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too. All feelings must be expressed without exception.
