First of all you have to understand that till now it is not a medical condition, but it can some day. You have start changing your way of thinking and behaving. 1) first you are an extremely emotionally sensitive person and most of the times, you function from the heart. If you start thinking and acting more from wisdom, you will be more peaceful. It will make you a more worldly wise person. 2) if you don't hurt people in return, that is extremely a rare quality, that means you forgive. Now since you forgive, learn to also forget. People are miserable only because either live in the past or worry about the future. Live in this moment. What is gone is gone. 3) to pursue any new relationship. It is really important, you forget the earlier or else it would spoil everything.

My brother in law is a schizophrenia patient. After my marriage i came to know that my father in law too had faced some problem before his marriage (details not know), two more first cousins have had stints of depression. Is mental problem hereditary? What are the chances of my children having such problems? Are there tests to check if the child is ok before the delivery?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Yes. A proportion of mental disorders are hereditary but as it is not autosomal dominant or sex linked genetic disorder it can not be predicted surely that the child will have it or not. Yes, definitely the chances are more than the general population, in which the family history is negative. No in utero test can determine about a child to get mental illness in future. There is a two hit hypothesis proposed by scientists that genetic predisposition plus stressors in life can increase the chances of mental illness to occur.

Hi, quitting alcohol will be one of the best decisions of your life. Alcohol not only affects your physical health, it also affects mental well-being, interpersonal relationships and performance at work. When you started drinking it was probably just a drink with friends, but somewhere it became an addiction. Addiction is often rooted in psychological issues that you may or may not be aware of. Before you quit drinking you will first need to identify these issues or else even when you quit drinking, there is a high chance of you getting addicted to something else. Consult a psychologist and work on these issues. The point of life where you stand today did not happen overnight, nor will changing it. Give it time and effort and resolve the underlying problems first. Start doing things that you have given up on in due course of time - start socializing with friends/family, exercising, eating healthy, doing little things in life that bring you joy and above all find a purpose in life that you are passionate about. You might need to take some medicines when you quit alcohol to deal with withdrawal symptoms. You can also try joining alcoholics anonymous in your city. It is a support group where they share their own stories and discuss how they overcame their addiction. All the best!

I have started to develop this phobia where I am not able to interact with my colleagues. My hands start shaking and my heart pounds when I sit for lunch or tea with them. I have started being alone, avoiding people. This is like a phobia which is scaring me and getting me extremely low. I am not able to focus on anything. I have stopped caffeine and nicotine. Will this go away overtime? Can a doctor help me out?

You definitely need to consult a very good dietician. Also gaining almost 25 kg in 2 months is not a good goal. The proper way to gain or reduce weight is taking an approach that does it gradually. You also need to remember that when you gain weight gradually then you are not gaining only fat but also gaining muscle mass. Then yiu don't need to worry about cardiac and other health related issues. Hope this helps best wishes.

4 Ways To Deal With Kleptomania!

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chandigarh
4 Ways To Deal With Kleptomania!

Kleptomania is a form of psychiatric disorder. It is a difficult disorder, and an affected person experiences a lot of shame, remorse, stress or feels guilt, which are associated with stealing. It is categorized as an impulse control disorder which affects the behavior of a patient. Kleptomania may be associated with obsessive compulsive disorder. The patient develops an impulse to steal and cannot control this impulse and later feels guilty.

Here are several tips which you can use in order to deal with kleptomania.

  1. Understanding the situation: It must be clearly understood that a kleptomaniac person does not steal with the intention of becoming rich. It is done only for mental satisfaction and to pacify the urge of stealing that comes from within to an affected person. The patient usually does not care about the object he steals, but he only cares about the act of stealing. Usually, kleptomaniac patients steal insignificant things. When an affected patient becomes extremely nervous or fearful, they tend to steal an object. After the act, they feel much better and relieved. Later, a feeling of guilt arises in the person about his stealing act.

  2. Treat the affected person gently: A kleptomaniac person requires love, care and great understanding from his/her loved ones or family members in order to recover. The problem and the situation must be recognized and perceived carefully. A person close to the patient should deal with him gently and try to make him understand. In many situations, a kleptomaniac may be aware of his actions but does not confess to avoid harassment.

  3. The situation is different from stealing: It must be kept in mind that the actions of a kleptomaniac cannot be exactly termed as stealing. Stealing is an organized activity done by conscious individuals in order to gain something material or money related. Kleptomania is an act of impulse which a patient conducts for psychological satisfaction. The patients are fully aware that stealing is not the right thing, but yet they cannot control their impulse to steal.

  4. Treatment procedures: Once a kleptomaniac person accepts that they are suffering from a disorder, professional help must be taken. Cognitive Behavior Therapy is the primary treatment for kleptomania. This includes aversion therapy where a distraction is created when a person develops the impulse to steal an object. Systematic desensitization is another process where a patient is made to imagine a scenario to get over the urge of stealing. Covert desensitization makes a patient imagine negative impacts of the stealing act such as arrest or harassment.

The social life of a kleptomaniac becomes very difficult and both the patient, and his family are subjected to a lot of trouble and harassment. Necessary measures must be taken for kleptomania.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hallucinations - Few Warning Signs You Might be Suffering From!

Hallucinations - Few Warning Signs You Might be Suffering From!

Getting Hallucinations is a mental condition where a person sees, feels, hears, and tastes things that actually don't exist beyond one's heightened imagination or delusion. It involves the experience of perceiving something not present. Hallucinations can be pleasing or frightening. However, there is almost always an identifiable cause behind it.

They can be triggered by:

  1. Taking hallucinogenic or psychotropic substances
  2. Mental conditions like dementia and schizophrenia
  3. Neurological conditions like Alzheimer's disease or Parkinson's disease
  4. Macular degeneration, leading to loss of vision
  5. Migraines and brain tumor can also lead to such delusions

Some of the signs of hallucinations:

  • Hearing voices: The medical term for hearing voices is called an 'auditory hallucination'. A person may sense sounds or noises coming from inside or outside of their mind. The noise might be random or disrupting. One might also feel the voices talking to each other or trying to tell them something. Most of the times, these voices come from inside the person's mind; or in some cases, one's heightened perception may make a normal noise delusional.
  • Seeing things: This is also called visual hallucinations. For instance, one may see unnatural things like a floating chair in thin air. It all depends on a person's perception. Sometimes these hallucinations appear as bright flashy spots or rays of light.
  • False sense of taste and smell: Technically these are known as gustatory and olfactory hallucinations respectively. One may feel a kind of odor coming from one's body or surrounding; or a person might feel that something he/she is drinking or eating has an odd taste. This is again heightened mal-perception causing delusional sensory activities.
  • Tactile hallucinations: This is when a person feels things that don't exist. One may feel that he/she is being touched or tickled even when no one else is around or that insects are crawling beneath the skin. One may experience strange sensations, which are not a part of a reality. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Neurosurgeon.
