Dear, emotional stress due to relationship breakup or any other reasons is a very tormenting experience for anyone. Its not easy to remove all the past memories which very wonderful as well as some were painful. In a relationship, we develop lot of attachment with our partner which makes it difficult to resolve breakup once that attached partner is no more with us. It feels like one of our body parts is not with us any more. This results in constant emotional pain as we don't find any other source of relief or attachment. Loss leads to experiences of being wounded. Its easy to heal physical wounds but emotional wounds generally stay with us forever. Many times we are not able to interpret the breakup and its reasons properly which results in consistent feelings of hatred and anger towards our partner and self. We keep pondering what went wrong and how we could have saved the relationship. So we may also feel lots of guilt. This makes the pain of breakup difficult to resolve. So one must understand the feelings associated with breakup and how they are causing pain to us. This requires an initiation of self-healing process. Try to focus on your feelings and see what are the most prominent ones. For example, are you feeling guilty that breakup was all your fault or do you feel anger that you have been betrayed. Try to understand what thoughts come to your mind when you think about your breakup or the thoughts that pop into your mind now and then that depress you and make you feel worse. This way you will understand how you have to heal yourself. Breakup experiences are different for everyone. You will come to know that breakup has some particularly significant effect on you which can be healed by developing self-compassion. You need to heal yourself by becoming more aware about your feelings. Distracting yourself by engaging in day to day normal activities may repress your emotions which may withdraw you from initiating new relationships. So try to make this breakup a transformative experience for you so that you may enter into a new relationship with new learning and experience. There should be no negativity left in you as a result of this experience. First gain awareness of feelings, then develop self-compassion, then see both sides of the breakup and then learn from this experience. Initial work should be of self-healing. Then look for moving further.

10 Signs That You May Be Bipolar DISORDER

When it comes to mental illness, there are plenty of stereotypes. But in reality, mood disorders can be hard to pinpoint?particularly in people with bipolar disorder symptoms.
Here are 10 signs that mood problems may be due to more than a quirky or difficult personality:

Greater Than Great Mood
Bipolar disorder is characterized by up-and-down episodes of mania and depression. During a manic phase, some patients can have a total break from reality. But hypomania, which is also a symptom of the disorder, is a high-energy state in which a person feels exuberant but hasn?t lost his or her grip on reality. ?Hypomania can be a pretty enjoyable state, really,? A person?s mood can be elevated, they may have a lot of energy and creativity, and they may experience euphoria. This is the ?up? side of bipolar disorder that some people with the condition actually enjoy?while it lasts.
Inability To Complete Tasks
Having a house full of half-completed projects is a hallmark of bipolar disorder. People who can harness their energy when they are in a hypomanic phase can be really productive. Those who can?t often go from task to task, planning grand, unrealistic projects that are never finished before moving on to something else. ?They can be quite distractible and may start a million things and never finish them,?
A person who is in a bipolar depressive state is going to look just like someone who has regular depression. ?They have the same problems with energy, appetite, sleep, and focus as others who have ?plain old depression,?? Unfortunately, typical antidepressants alone don?t work well in patients who are bipolar. They can even make people cycle more frequently, worsening their condition, or send someone into a break-with-reality episode. ?Antidepressants can be downright dangerous in people with bipolar because they can send them into mania,?

Some people with this condition suffer from ?mixed mania,? where they experience symptoms of mania and depression at the same time. During this state, they are often extremely irritable. Everyone has bad days, which is one reason this kind of bipolarity is much harder to recognize. ?We are all irritable or moody sometimes,? . ?But in people with bipolar disorder it often becomes so severe that it interferes with their relationships?especially if the person is saying, ?I don?t know why I?m so irritable?I can't control it.??
Rapid Speech
Some people are naturally talkative; we all know a motormouth or Chatty Cathy. But ?pressured speech? is one of the most common symptoms of bipolar disorder. This kind of speech occurs when someone is really not in a two-way conversation, The person will talk rapidly and if you try to speak, they will likely just talk over you. They will also sometimes jump around to different topics. ?What?s kind of a red flag is when it is atypical for the person to talk like this,? doing it only when they are in a manic cycle but not at other times,
Problems At Work
People with this disorder often have difficulty in the workplace because so many of their symptoms can interfere with their ability to show up for work, do their job, and interact productively with others. In addition to having problems completing tasks, they may have difficulty sleeping, irritability, and an inflated ego during a manic phase, and depression at other times, which causes excessive sleeping and additional mood problems. A lot of the workplace problems can be interpersonal ones,
Substance Abuse
About 50% of people with bipolar disorder also have a substance abuse problem, particularly alcohol use, . Many people will drink when they are in a manic phase to slow themselves down, and use alcohol to improve their mood when they are depressed.
Erratic Behavior
When they are in a manic phase, people with bipolar disorder can have an inflated self-esteem. ?They feel grandiose and don?t consider consequences; everything sounds good to them,? . Two of the most common types of behavior that can result from this are spending sprees and unusual sexual behavior. ?I have had a number of patients who have had affairs who never would have done that if they weren't in a manic episode?during this episode they exhibited behavior that is not consistent with what they would do normally,?

It's a good thing that you recognize that it's a problem and are willing to ask for help. First step done. Second step is starting treatment. Alcohol dependence is a brain-disease. Due to regular intake of this chemical, certain areas in your brain change. This leads mainly to tolerance (needing more and more alcohol), withdrawal (having problems like insomnia, tremors or craving on leaviqng alcohol) and craving. To make your brain come to a normal state, you need medicines. First phase would be detoxification. Here your withdrawal symptoms will be treated. After 2-3 weeks, rehab phase will start. Here you will need therapy to reduce craving, taking care of other problems, changing your lifestyle, etc. You need to be away from alcohol for 6-12 months at least to let your brain heal. Visit a qualified psychiatrist today and start your journey towards a healthier life. All the best.

Whoever said that is quite wrong. Medicine and therapy in combination are ideal for a cure for depression. In her depressed state she may be frustrated with her weight gain and low moods and is probably looking for some excitement even if it is to irritate you. You need not take it too personally but her depression is serious and needs immediate attention. To handle her weight gain she will need to get on a weight-loss program along with medication and counseling.

Hi lybrate-user! OCD is not that serious for you to think of death. May be your divorced you because you were complaining of all these problems and forgot to look in and around your real environment of happiness. Once your OCD is cleared you can definitely find a suitable partner to live with. Stop thinking negative Arun. There are people who are suffering from non-curable diseases and very difficult living, but when compared to them, your problem is nothing. All you need is will power, self confidence, strong mind, and hard work towards OCD to let go and lead an happy life. But whosoever going to treat you will definitely need a detailed history of OCD to help you overcome this. I would suggest you to undergo treatment for the same from your local Professional Psychologist or Online Psychologist as soon as possible and follow up accordingly. If you are interested you can contact me either through text chat or online consultation yes you are most welcome. Never give up anything so cheap I mean do not give your life for OCD. Fight against OCD and you will start overcoming it naturally if you are brilliant and wise enough. Take care. Fear not. Have a strong mind and strong heart day by day so that the OCD you ar suffering will rin away from you, I mean will disappear. For further assistance do contact me either through text chat or online consultation as soon as possible. With regards

Epilepsy: Knowledge for General Public

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people worldwide. It is characterized by recurrent seizures, which are brief episodes of involuntary movement that may involve a part of the body (partial) or the entire body (generalized), and are sometimes accompanied by loss of consciousness and control of bowel or bladder function.

Seizure episodes are a result of excessive electrical discharges in a group of brain cells. Different parts of the brain can be the site of such discharges. Seizures can vary from the briefest lapses of attention or muscle jerks to severe and prolonged convulsions. Seizures can also vary in frequency, from less than 1 per year to several per day.

One seizure does not signify epilepsy (up to 10% of people worldwide have one seizure during their lifetime). Epilepsy is defined as having 2 or more unprovoked seizures.

Fear, misunderstanding, discrimination and social stigma have surrounded epilepsy for centuries. This stigma continues in many countries today and can impact on the quality of life for people with the disorder and their families.

Signs and symptoms

Characteristics of seizures vary and depend on where in the brain the disturbance first starts, and how far it spreads. Temporary symptoms occur, such as loss of awareness or consciousness, and disturbances of movement, sensation (including vision, hearing and taste), mood, or other cognitive functions.

People with seizures tend to have more physical problems (such as fractures and bruising from injuries related to seizures), as well as higher rates of psychological conditions, including anxiety and depression. Similarly, the risk of premature death in people with epilepsy is up to 3 times higher than the general population, with the highest rates found in low- and middle-income countries and rural versus urban areas.

A great proportion of the causes of death related to epilepsy in low- and middle-income countries are potentially preventable, such as falls, drowning, burns and prolonged seizures.


Epilepsy is not contagious. The most common type of epilepsy, which affects 6 out of 10 people with the disorder, is called idiopathic epilepsy and has no identifiable cause.

Epilepsy with a known cause is called secondary epilepsy, or symptomatic epilepsy. The causes of secondary (or symptomatic) epilepsy could be:

  • brain damage from prenatal or perinatal injuries (e.g. a loss of oxygen or trauma during birth, low birth weight),
  • congenital abnormalities or genetic conditions with associated brain malformations,
  • a severe head injury,
  • a stroke that restricts the amount of oxygen to the brain,
  • an infection of the brain such as meningitis, encephalitis, neurocysticercosis,
  • certain genetic syndromes,
  • a brain tumor.


Epilepsy can be treated easily and affordable medication. Recent studies in both low- and middle-income countries have shown that up to 70% of children and adults with epilepsy can be successfully treated (i.e. their seizures completely controlled) with anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). Furthermore, after 2 to 5 years of successful treatment and being seizure-free, drugs can be withdrawn in about 70% of children and 60% of adults without subsequent relapse.


Idiopathic epilepsy is not preventable. However, preventive measures can be applied to the known causes of secondary epilepsy.

  • Preventing head injury is the most effective way to prevent post-traumatic epilepsy.
  • Adequate perinatal care can reduce new cases of epilepsy caused by birth injury.
  • The use of drugs and other methods to lower the body temperature of a feverish child can reduce the chance of febrile seizures.
  • Central nervous system infections are common causes of epilepsy in tropical areas, where many low- and middle-income countries are concentrated.
  • Elimination of parasites in these environments and education on how to avoid infections can be effective ways to reduce epilepsy worldwide, for example those cases due to neurocysticercosis.

I have relationship problems. Actually my boyfriend want to separate from me. But due attachment and love I can't do this. I tried all the things to sort out this. But it doesn't work. From the very beginning my boyfriend loved me a lot till 1 year. But today he consider me a tension only. Due to this he insults me a lot. I had talked to him regarding this problem he said that I didn't know before that you are this type of girl. I said why you always insults me then he replies" you also did the same to me" If I question him again and again he start says that you always fights I don't want to talk to you. Then my self respect also get hurts. I miss my boyfriend's care and love which he had given me before. What should I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You should never want to be in a relationship where you are not wanted, period. Whatever the history of this relationship, if he says he wants a separation, then go for it. It may make you very uncomfortable in the beginning but you will get over it in time. I do not if there is any truth in his accusation that you fight too much and you insult him too. If it has any truth to it, you will need to look into that and work with a relationship counselor to change that. Usually, when a relationship has ben through a long duration, the real nature of the individual shows up over time. Now, that nature may not be very good too. Please do not pursue a relationship by force: why would you want to continue this friendship, if he ios not interested. This is predictably going to ruin both your lives. Just accept this reality and after the initial difficulties, you will overcome. Yes, you need to do all this to preserve your self-respect.

Dear user. Homosexual means men having sexual relationship with men. Homo sexual people are of two types. First type of people will have only sex with male and they can't have sex with female because they are not interested. Second type are those who can have sex with male and female. Straight male is not homosexual Take care.

Dear doctor, feeling guilty about her 11 years old daughter who told her that she was sexually abused some years back by her relative. Now as the child is getting aware of the abuse and want to share it with her parents. What should be the reaction of parents so that child comes out of this mental pressure before taking her to any counselling?

Dear doctor, feeling guilty about her 11 years old daughter who told her that she was sexually abused some years back...
Dear , first of all stop feeling guilty for not being able to protect the child. We can't protect every time. Making them aware is important. Sexual abuse is not fault of victim. You need to assure her she is valuable as before. It's not her fault at all. And then take her to counsellor. Childhood voids should be filled asap.

I am a 20 years old currently seeking treatment for ocd. I feel like checking stuff and get lots of repetitive thoughts. Apart from that I also feel low, lack of energy, hopelessness, low self esteem, lack of interest and joy in anything, inability to focus on simple tasks to a great extent. But my psychiatrist says its only due to ocd and anxiety. What should I do? Am I suffering from only anxiety or depression as well?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Secondary to OCD anxiety and Depression are very common. Your psychiatrist is right. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples like sexual thoughts, counting, checking, orderliness, etc. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly.

Hi, its called light therapy. It is not clear why bright light therapy may work for people with depression, but previous research has shown it often works in the treatment of people with seasonal affective disorder (sad). One idea is that in people with sad, the light may correct a problem with their inner biological clock called the circadian rhythm, lam said. The second major theory is that light affects neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin, noradrenalin and dopamine, he said" and these are the same neurotransmitters that are of interest in antidepressants for treating depression as well.

Patientience is important in this time. Wait for the right time. You will succeeded. Best of luck.
