Q. Do you believe that anger can be one of the main causes of depression? People say that I am short tempered. I feel like to yelling at everybody. I feel that I am flying off the handle too often and this has led to depression. Do you believe that anger can be one of the main causes of depression? If so, why?

A. Hi my firebrand friend! I could feel that you are not at all short tempered ? but in my case, I think it has been. While depression certainly is an illness caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain, I think anger can trigger symptoms akin to depression. Looking back now at my last hospitalization, I see that I was angry with someone most unreasonably so. So I started feeling guilty about this. I have time now to think about the situation that happened. I know I had over-reacted. I am much better now after medication to cure my depression and have started reasoning out every situation and find that I react better to people.

Q. Without any reasons I am getting angry. I remain always depressed. Which medicines should I take? I have a problem. Without any reasons I am getting angry. I remain always depressed. I am not able to understand what to be done in which time. I have gone completely out of routine. I get involved in fight with anyone. It’s messing up my life. I am not able to concentrate in my studies. I do not feel happy when I meet my friends rather it makes me highly depressed. When any of my friends taunts me or make any sort of joke on me it makes me very anger and I had fought with one. I don’t want to fight but something went that day I have beaten my friend. He was close to me and had helped me in my bad times. I just don’t understand what`s going on. I need some help…please any one give me some guidance on what sort problem it is and is this curable by medicines? Which medicines should I take?

A. Hey my dear friend…do not worry you will get well and you will be also feel good and happy. This low period might be due to anything which has hurt you. Please try to find what has hurt you and which is rolling in your subconscious mind and is giving you pain. I would suggest you to take up on your hobbies regularly. Do a bit of exercise. Exercise will boost up your body and a good body will make you feel better. Please do not take any medicine on anyone’s advice. Do what I have told you and if you do not find things getting well then you meet a doctor. Take any medicine given by the doctor in time. Let the doctor guide you, which will be good for you.

Q. I am really scared to discuss with him on this issue. Hi! I’m Olivia. These days, my husband is very much irritated, showing anger, extremely sad, try to be lonely , shouts to the core and does not show interest in sex . I am really scared to discuss with him on the issue. When I did discuss with my friend, she said all this might be the symptoms of Bipolar Disorder and advised me to consult a Physician.. Can anyone in this Forum please help me out?

A. Methinks all these brain disorders have everything to do with a lack of copper. With all our modern technology and artificial fertilizers and processing of foods, the food has become so depleted of minerals that our bodies and brains have become so depleted that we cannot even function properly. Start taking kelp, calcium magnesium, cod liver oil, flax seed oil, and raw apple cider vinegar. This will bring healing and normal function to the brain and body systems. The emotions will calm down and be more manageable. If he is taking a vitamin with more manganese than copper it will add to the dysfunction. Don't waste your money.

Seriously, if you can get him to take all of these things, it can help sweeten his personality. My husband noticed a difference in me within two weeks, my kids are giving me positive feedback after two years. I am much more calm and have a lot more control of the 'flashouts'.
