Depression Questions

I have been going through a lot of stress and depression since past 4 years. I don't know my mom used to hit me a lot before because I used to back answer them. I have stopped sharing things with my parents. I have developed a lot of anger and I don't talk properly to them often. Neither they do talk to me properly. They don't understand me I feel. I have to work hard always on explaining my point but still could not convince them. I have developed so many trust issues with them even when they are good to me. I have no friends and no family support. What do I do? I am scared of sharing with my parents anything because they would taunt me and won't even try to understand and if I back answer I would be hit .i don't know what to do .All I do is keep crying and fall asleep. I have no close person to talk to or make my parents understand. What should I do?

Hi Friend, Your fear about side effect is quite genuine due to the symptoms that may appears after taking medicines. If you notice such symptom kindly inform your treating doctor to advice on the change of medicines. Just be aware that medicines are just one part of any psychic treatments and mostly they help in suppressing or controlling the emotion. Still you need to work at mental level to remove source for such anxious or depressive thoughts. Moreover there may be side effects due to various factors like body condition, existing alignments, food habits, lifestyle etc So in parallel, you need to follow certain self or guided behavioral therapies, changes in lifestyle, Dietary, exercises along with counseling. Feel free to connect me to understand more on suitable alternatives that you can follow to overcome your emotional disturbance. Be positive. You will be alright soon.

Hi, You have Anxiety neurosis. Disease Comes From Yourself And You Don’t Realize It. We are the only species on the face of the Earth capable of transforming our biology through our thoughts and feelings. Our cells are constantly watching our thoughts and are being modified by them. A bout of depression can devastate our immune system; a state of serenity, in contrast, can fortify it tremendously. Joyful and harmonious activity can keep us healthy and prolong our life. The memories of a negative or sad situation release the same hormones and biological destructive substances that stress does. Our cells are constantly processing all our experiences and metabolizing them according to our personal points of view. As a result, our bodies are transformed as soon as we internalize our interpretations. A depressed person, for example, will project sadness throughout his or her entire body. When depression occurs, the production of neurotransmitters from the brain are altered, hormone levels will vary, the sleep cycle is interrupted, the neuropeptide receptors on the outer surface of the skin cells are modified, blood platelets become more viscous and more likely to form lumps and even the tears will contain different chemical trails as those of joy. This entire biochemical profile will change drastically once the person becomes calm and serene. These facts confirm the great need to use our consciousness to create the bodies that we really need. The same way the aging process can be neutralized every day. Shakespeare was not being metaphorical when through his character Prosperous said: “We are made of the same stuff as dreams”. Do you want to know how is your body doing today? Then remember what your thoughts and emotions were yesterday. Do you want to know how your body will be tomorrow? Observe your thoughts and emotions today! Remember that when you open up your heart and your mind you will be avoiding a surgeon doing it for you. The remedy is within you and you are not using it. Disease comes from yourself and you don’t realize it.

IN THE BEGINNING, I love a girl since 22nd June 2009, So after a few days after the given date, I wrote a Love letter and then I put it in her bag. She read it but she didn't give a response to my love proposal and then after every few days, because of I wrote a love letter to her, she cried a lot during a lecture in the class of our school. The teacher came to know that she was crying. The teacher asked her that, "why are you crying, she didn't respond but her classmate told the teacher. That someone wrote a love letter to her. The teacher shouted by telling "WHO WROTE THE letter Then the teacher was predicting that who can do this rubbish thing, then the teacher called out the back-benches and started questioning them so they consistently were telling that they were innocent but one of the back-bencher student who was my friend (LET'S CALL THIS FRIEND BY "X) and "X" knew that the love letter was written by me, so "X" didn't want to get trouble in the matter so he told the truth to the teacher. So the teacher called me out and told "WHY YOU WROTE THE LETTER? Then I lied that, "I DIDN'T WRITE LETTER" The teacher again asked me that who wrote the letter, Again I lied, that" I DON'T KNOW" The teacher then told, "YOU GO REY, YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING" The victim girl told a Big lie to the teacher that. "X" wrote the love letter to me. So the "X" got into the big trouble even by being innocent in reality. SO FROM THE ABOVE STORY, DID SHE TELL YES INDIRECTLY TO MY LOVE PROPOSAL? Since now, The girl and I didn't have a conversation. Not even "Hi" On 13th May 2016, Saturday, 7: 27 pm I had followed her in the garden. This does’t mean that I was having a negative intention to hurt her. I only want to walk with her in the garden but I was not having the courage to talk to her. I felt nervous to talk to her so I followed her not to hurt her but to walk with her parallel. I want to get attention from her so to have a conversation. I kept photos of hers…not her personal or private photos. I kept her photos NOT because I want to post her photo in a threatening way/bad way in the sense of some boys are collecting the photos of girls and spreading the wrong message that the girl in the photo is a call-girl & so and so. Not like that. I kept her photos because when I see her photos, I feel better. And in the movie “ THE SECRET”, in that movie, the narrator used to tell that what we see frequently every day and what we feel by seeing it, one day we will surely receive it…I used to do this same technique everyday… only to achieve her in my life. I also stalked at her. Note: Stalking or Staring is wrong only if the person stares at someone in a bad way. I wrote her name in my 11th std Biology First Semester Exam paper…My classmates teased me by another girl’s name and I cannot tolerate it. I love only that one and only one girl and I don’t want to get teased by some other girl’s name and therefore, I wrote her name in the Semester exam paper so that the classmates will not tease me by any random girl’s name. On her birthday, I commented Bollywood Romantic Dialogues in her Facebook Timeline (But not Adult obscene dialogues) On 28th August 2016, Sunday, 6: 00 pm She and her Mom, her friend, her Uncle came to my house and because of I followed her, I kept her photos, I stalked at her. They threatened very rudely to my Parents that they will insult me in front of my society and they will file a police complaint. NOTE: Her friend motivated her to insult my parents because her friend is jealous of me in terms of Academics. SO WHAT DO YOU THINK, DID SHE TELL INDIRECTLY NO TO MY LOVE PROPOSAL? NOTE: 2 YEARS AGO, SHE MOVED ON WITH ANOTHER GUY. SHE TRIED TO JEALOUS ME WITH HER NEW BOYFRIEND. SHE BLOCKED ME ON SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES. Psychologically, my problem is Whenever I see that girl whom I love. My heart beats very fast and I just run away quickly from her What is the Cause? Any Permanent Solution of it?

You can engage yourself in some form of yoga or relaxation to take care of your stress and anxiety as apparently from your situation it seems you are very anxious. You should also share issues with close friends and pursue your hobbies to buildup your self esteem. Maybe gardening, writing, painting, music etc. If nothing works out you need to consult a qualified counsellor in your area and take their advice.

I am a 30 years old male (Married), having below chronic symptoms: - Getting anxious and Rapid heartbeat rate - Excessive dreaming during night sleep and getting up exhausted in the morning - Mood variation from low to high and vice versa (less frequent) I have been on treatment since 2004 till present. I have been under treatment of several psychiatrists (Due to studies and job posting my current city kept on changing) and got to know below terminologies as part of their diagnosis in chronology of consultation: - Subconscious state depression - Endogenous depression - Bi-polar disorder - Depression & Anxiety combined - General anxiety disorder - Latest diagnosis - No anxiety, its Insomnia Tests: Have been through EEG, thyroid profiles, Liver & Kidney profiles etc. None of the above test was concluded to be the cause of my situation by the psychiatrists I was consulting. Currently all the anxiety / depression medicines stopped by my psychiatrist. I am on amitriptyline 10 mg and Melatonin 3 mg. None of the treatment seems working. My both the parents also have some psychiatric problems but they are stable with their current treatments. Happy atmosphere at home. Can some help me out of this situation. I don't find a root cause of my symptoms so that it may be worked upon. Its really disappointing and making me hopeless. Thanks.

Hello, Good that you are seeking a help here. As you have tried different medicines and allopathy options already and not satisfied with the results, then would advice you to explore alternatives therapies like ayurveda. Go through my article on Ayurveda solutions for psychology. Mostly imbalance of air energy or Vata in Ayurveda terms is the cause for many mental health issues. It need thorough body and mind assessment to isolate the root cause. There are therapies, dietary, home remedies along with yoga and meditation available as solution. As I am also an ayurveda wellness counselor, can guide you with the options. Feel free to reach out to me online for further evaluation.

I like your exercise regimen: keep it up. 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 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 calisthenic 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 lybrate-user, you said you are suffering from depression. But you have to be evaluated by psychiatrist for that. Etifix is used for anxiety symptoms only so it won't cure your depression. You said you are taking additiction medicine, you need to clarify which medicine you are taking. Consult psychiatrist nearby. Thank you for your question.

Does the homeopathy medicine Reckeweg Vita c 15 Forte work for anxiety and depression?
I hope you understand homeopathic treatment before generalizing medicine for disease. Because homeopathic medicine is specific to personality. So I suggest you to consult local homeopath.
