At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue that needs urgent attention. 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 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. 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.

Put in more efforts and you will see, you will have some work. It will bring money, and then you can start dreaming again. Please don't give up. Have faith in yourself and be consistent.

MD Psychiatry
Psychiatrist,
Trust is an important aspect of friendship. If the trust is lost over some silly issue let it go and try rebuilding your relationship with your friend. If your friend ditched you in some major thing I suggest you terminate your relationship with that person.

I am 31 yrs old male. I have Dissociative disorders from last 3 months. Please help me.
This is a difficult condition to treat. You must seek psychotherapy and medication for a long time. It is often a reaction to some stress that is quite traumatic which you may be able to identify that initially led to this development. You must work to connect with yourself and others quite frequently and develop some comfort in the long run relating to others. You have to be cooperative right through the treatment because it can be long term and arduous. You need the support of your family and friends while undergoing therapy. Exercise, diet, sleep, a tight time schedule, productive activities through the day, and taking care of your emotions will play a very important role in therapy, among other things.

I am 29 years old and i am very much addicted to alcohol and recently I managed to stop taking alcohol. So I want to know how can I reduce/detoxify alcohol. From my body.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Alcohol is a very potent substance affecting the brain. Initially a person like the effect and he continues to abuse substance. Later on due to strong craving and withdrawal discomfort he fails to maintain abstinence for long and relapses again. It is good that you have decided to change. But leaving alcohol suddenly particularly at home is dangerous due to serious life-threatening withdrawal effects. Hence I advise you to consult a psychiatrist/de-addiction centre for professional help.

My stammering is different I speak without stammering with frns, with family members. But I stammer very badly in front of teachers in such a way that I cannot say my name. My parents say I was not a stammer earlier. But now I stammer in front of new people, I cannot communicate? Help.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation. In your case it looks like anxiety.

My dad has a chronic addiction of alcohol and cigarette smoking. It is from about last 30 years. He smoke about 5 to 10 cigarettes a day and about 6-8 pegs of whisky/wine a day. And even exceed it ocassionaly. Me and my family have tried to counsel him but it's not working. I am now in a medical school and whole heartedly want to do something for this. He could not even make to skip a day from his addiction. Please suggest me. Could anti - smoking drugs work, without much of a side effects.

Hello lybrate-user, you need to take your father to a de-addiction center, where they admit him and he undergoes detoxification and medicines are given under supervision. Each patient reacts differently to such meds. So its better to have him admitted rather an opd treatment.

My wife age is 38, she is suffering from schizophrenia last four years but she does not take medication, she don't think that she is ill if we say that she is ill she become very aggressive what should we do? Please advice.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
She must somehow have the medication, if it has been prescribed. Some of the patients can be difficult about taking medication for fear of some unfounded reasons: the dull feeling, the weight gain, the low energy, etc., which are some of the drug reactions. There are medicines to counter these drug effects and if she is convinced she may cooperate. If you can talk and reason out the facts with her then she might be convinced more readily. If not she can be taken back to the doctor who diagnosed her and let him do the explaining. The other alternative is to talk to her doctor and see if s/he is willing to give some medication which can be slipped into her food or drink without her knowledge. In the worst case scenario she can be told that she will be admitted into the hospital or institution, if she does not cooperate. But you must be very careful that she does not do something drastic out of the fear of force being used. So you will need to monitor her 24 hours for her safety. There are also long-acting injections for schizophrenia, which may be administered too but in the guise of treating some other problem. Do consult her doctor to see if s/he has any other ingenious approach.

4 Ways Couple YOGA Can Take Your Fitness and Relationship to the Next Level

4 Ways Couple YOGA Can Take Your Fitness and Relationship to the Next Level

4 ways couple yoga can take your fitness and relationship to the next level

Different from traditional yoga (involving a single person only), couple yoga involves the merging of your body rhythm with that of another person. This sync between partners is achieved through touch, movement, breath and body positions. The benefits that you gain from this practice are not only limited to your body but extend to your relationship too.

Far from the seriousness that you usually associate with traditional yoga, couple yoga allows the two of you to be more happy and playful. This is because trying to get the right pose with your partner can lead to a fair share of fun and laughter. You not only have to figure how to get into that pose, but also how to hold it.

In terms of how it affects your fitness levels, couple yoga can.

1. Strengthen your core

Couple yoga comprises of poses that strengthen your core, leading to improved metabolism and overall strength. The varied poses that you'll come across in this form of practice strive to engage the muscles of your back and abdomen, which are crucial in building your core strength. Double boat pose and side plank pose are two of such core strengthening poses. You can check out these various poses online.

2. Boost immunity

Whether it's your nervous system or the digestive system, the different yoga poses (like the child poses or the upward dog pose) bring about the stimulation of one or more of the body's systems, leading to a bolstering of your immune system.

Here's how couple yoga can deepen your relationship -

1. It builds trust

The practice of couple yoga can help build trust as certain poses call for trusting your partner implicitly. Difficult yoga poses may require you to hold onto your partner to stay balanced; and this total dependence on the other person creates a sense of confidence and comfort as you realise that your partner is there for you. A case in point is the partner tree pose, which can be both entertaining and challenging. It calls for great amount of trust and balance to sustain this pose successfully.

2. It improves intimacy between the two of you

Apart from all the fun, there's to this form of yoga, couple yoga also calls for a certain level of intimacy. While practicing it, you not only get to learn your own limitations but also those of your partner, helping you to accept all of them. The opening poses (heart hug) serves to do just that, it opens the two of you up so that you can fall in sync. Gestures like placing your hand on the heart of your partner, feeling the other person's heartbeat and keeping pace with each other's breathing serve to strengthen the bond between you two.

While improving your health and fitness levels, couple yoga strives to improve your relationship with your partner and help the two of your to explore patterns and aims within your relationship.

Dear lybrate user, you have tried to get rid of your anxiety by doing yoga and pranayama, but it has not helped. May be you can talk to a counsellor who will help you to analyse the causes of your anxiety and then will help you to get rid of it with the help of behaviour therapy. Once you are relieved of your excess anxiety, you will have better control on your body and mind and will be able to sleep peacefully.
