I lost somebody close last year and since then feel very depressed and prefer keeping to myself all the time please help me.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
Loosing someone close is very tough emotionally. Sometimes persistent grief leads to depression as it causes constant stress response in your body. You may want to see a psychologist or a counselor for few weeks to break the thought pattern that you are having right now and begin a positive pattern. I would also advice to try following things as you are young and stress is present in our daily life these days. Building resilience will go a long way and help you cope up with many life circumstances. Building your resilience will also help you manage your stress and help in depression. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Human being has an unique ability to forget many things. We must understand this. Ability to forget is as important as ability to understand. We can easily forger many things as desired. But don't worry about what we forget. I suggest online counselling. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Hi, Exercise Researchers have suggested several ways that regular physical activity may play a role in keeping your brain healthy and your memory strong. Therefore, try to build moderate exercise into your daily routine, setting aside specific time for it. Eating Right Maintaining a healthy diet rich in nutrients may be a factor in preserving brain function and memory. Fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats from whole grains, fish, and nuts may be beneficial in protecting against diseases and maintaining brain health. If you are experiencing traumatic stress or find yourself stuck in repetitive, unhealthy behavior... ...Try exercising the muscles connected to fight-or-flight with attention. Exercises that use both your arms and legs—and are done in a focused way with mindful awareness of your physical and emotional experience—are especially good at reducing traumatic stress. Exercises like walking, running, swimming, or rock-climbing, activate your senses and make you more aware of yourself and others when they are done with focused attention.

I am scared to die or hear any death or accident of my close ones. Recently one of my relative died due to accident. So there is always fear inside me. I call my husband everytime everyday whether he reached ofice or not or anywhere else.He uses bike daily.So i am worried all the time .I feel fine when all my family members are home.Is this depression.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Death will come whenever it has to come. Trust me on this, and therefore focus on the moment. The present is important, and if you are alive, live like one enjoying that fact. You are developing a phobia about death without proper justification. If you have a good reason to worry about accidents, like if your husband drinks and rides the bike, I can understand. Other than that, it is mere generalization that one accident to someone else will mean that your husband will also somehow meet with one. This is a death fixation. This can cripple you, and it seems it already has. At least trust in God and say your prayers with faith. This type of obsession will make others uncomfortable and may in fact suggest, at an unconscious level, that some danger is imminent. This can have a disturbing effect on the other person and in fact may lead to an accident by self-fulfillment. If death has to come by destiny or design, there is nothing you can do about it, apart from taking all the usual precautions. Your fear it turning into an anxiety and will affect your children too. Meet with a counselor to work out the facts of the reality and without taking undue precautions live a normal life. Unexpressed fear is very suggestive, if you let it. Fear always tends to find a form, and it usually finds something scarier than the reality, and makes it look like a surety. Keep yourself occupied, do regular exercise and always express your feelings appropriately: ?The idle mind is a devil?s workshop. If your mind is fed positives thoughts and is occupied with mind-engaging activities, these ideas will not torment you like this. This is not yet depression but you can give yourself one over time.

Sir/Madam, At present am a student preparing for government exams but while preparing am unable to concentrate on my studies what should I do please suggest me something.

There are few food which helps you in boosting up your memory power, increases focus & concentration, so try to take more of these: 1.Choline: Good sources of choline include liver, milk, eggs and peanuts. 2.Vitamin B: B vitamins are not synthesized in the body, and thus need to be obtained from food. B-complex vitamins are water-soluble vitamins, which means that they are not stored within the body. In consequence, the B vitamins need ongoing replenishment. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) rich sources include unrefined grain products, ready-to-eat cereals, meat (especially pork), dairy products, peanuts, legumes, fruits and eggs. Foods that contain high concentrations of vitamin B3 (niacin) in the free form include beans and organ meat, as well as enriched grain and cereal products. While niacin is present in corn and other grains, the bioavailability of the nutrient is much less than it is in protein-rich sources. The role of vitamin B9 (folic acid) during pregnancy is vital to normal development of the nervous system in the fetus. Good sources of folate include liver, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals, beans, asparagus, spinach, broccoli, and orange juice.Animal protein products are a good source of vitamin B12 (cobalamine), particularly organ meats such as kidney or liver. Other good sources are fish, eggs, and dairy products. 3.Vitamin A: The foods highest in Vitamin A are any pigmented fruits and vegetables and leafy green vegetables. 4.Zinc: Zinc is a very important part of the brain as well; many regions of the brain, such as the cerebellum, and hippocampus have neurons that contain this nutrient.Zinc is needed to maintain normal Vitamin A levels in blood plasma. Sources of zinc are meats, certain seafood, whole grains, baked beans, oatmeal, milk (low-fat), cashewnut, almonds, kidney-beans, cheese, peas, spinach, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily.

Dear user. I can understand. You are YOU. Whatever your behavior today, whatever your body language today are learned from your past experiences and social interactions. Whatever you have learned can be unlearned or over written. This is a continuous process happening throughout your life. I suggest cognitive behavior therapy for you. Take care.

I have a memory problem. I am not able to remember things for long time. Ge could I solve this problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

1. Can an employer terminate an employee if they found an employee is taking consultation with Psycratic or taking antidepresive. 2. How can company appointed Doctor/ Psycratic will proof that an employee is suffering from mental illness. 3. If an employee is suffering from Depression/Anxiety due to harassment of company then what is the legal protection of employee. 4. If any employee is suffering from any physical problem company is having sympathy with them but if an employee is suffering from a mental illness [Anxiety/depression] there is no social sympathy or legal protection. Yes its true I am taking antidepressant prescribed by Dr. to stay fit sice few years to manage unwanted pressure created by my private company on me. Company HR got this information from their some sources and start harassing me to quit the job and resign But I do not resign then Can I fight with company on this issue. Is there any legal protection of persons suffering from mental illness.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
An employee cannot terminate merely on the basis that a person suffers from psychiatric illness, it should be proved that because of the illness he is unfit for the job. If you go to court, if the company fires you citing psychiatric illnesss as the reason, the court will refer you to a government medical board comprising of psychiatrists for opinion. They will re assess you completely over a period of time and submit their report to the court, based on which the judge will decide. All the best.

Some initial courage is needed, when one has to end any sort of black-mailing. Facing the ill -effect is better than continuous blackmailing, which is like slow poison. You explain it to him that you wish to end it on a happy note. If he is more keen on exploitation tell him, it will also be him and his family, who will have there pride at stake as well. Lastly life never stops, you will eventually find another way. At this time and age, one should not consider it as a fault, despite the social conditioning. Remember you have done nothing wrong, you have a right to say yes and no whenever you want and your family will be more troubled if you carry on with this forceful relationship

A positive attitude is essential to deal with your disorders of any kind. Try to understand the metaphysical cause underlying your illness and council yourself for the same.

Anticipation of stress and preparing oneself for anticipated stressful life events prevents anxiety and stress related disorders.
For example: like one prepares for mock tests well ahead in time before the main exam or even spot exams, in a similar way anticipate life stressors. For example, if one is 30yrs old - mid career, anticipate financial stress and plan for it. Anticipate BP or Diabetes in Mid Forties and start changing lifestyle now. Anticipate heart disease and operation in Mid- fifties, anticipate illhealth of other family members, anticipate financial stress about children's education, children leaving home in your sixties, anticipate mobility problems in late 60's and 70's.
Anticipate and prepare for health insurance etc.
Despite all this planning expect any sudden life events. Taking time for yourself - building your skills, exercising, enjoyable hobbies, playing a small role in society and leading a balanced simple life can alleviate lots of stress related illness and anxiety disorders and of course LESS MEDICAL BILLS.
