Hi lybrate-user, first and foremost you need to drop stress- get active exercise daily for 1 hour brisk walk, gymming, cardio anything of your choice. Eat more fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables and lots of dry fruits almonds and walnut specially. Write down your negative thoughts and in return write 3 positive points countering that negative thought you need to build up on your confidence and assertive skills. Consult a psychologist for sessions to be right back on track. All the best.

I am suffering from feeling energy less from childhood. It affects my personality and confidence too. I fear to do heavy and continue work. Please tell possible reasons and treatment for this problem.

Dear lybrate-user. If there is no other physical reason for your low energy feeling, this should be psychological lethargy. This happens due to negative thinking and obsession about your own health. You may not habituated with hard work. This has to be changed. You have to change your attitude and should work hard to get the habit changed. You could need attitude altering therapy. Take care.

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

I face issues in making decisions. Fear is what stops me. How to deal with such situation?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, Fearing change keeps all of us stuck in place some times when it would be better to move on. That's normal human nature, but it's not serving us well. How do we get past it? It's not easy, but here are some questions that may help. 1. What's the worst that can happen if I make this change? I'm not suggesting you indulge in worst-case-scenario fantasies. What I am recommending is that you think about the difficulties you're likeliest to encounter as a result of your big change, and make plans to mitigate them. 2. What's the best that can happen if I don't make this change? Sometimes this question is the push we need to face up to change. It's simple: If you're unhappy with the status quo, and all you're likely to get is more of the same, then you have a choice: Learn to love what you already have, or go get something new. If you can't do the former, then you'd better do the latter, or you may be stuck in the doldrums forever. 3. Can anyone ever know everything? There's a simple answer to this one: Obviously not. This tells you that if an unknown future seems scary--well it is, and it is for everyone. Thinking you'll know what will happen if you change your life is as much an illusion as thinking that you know what will happen if you don't. In other words--it's all a mystery, so if you have the urge to give something new a try, you might as well go for it. 4. If I don't make this change, will everything else stay the same? This, too, has an obvious answer: No, it won't. This is something to keep in mind when making a decision about change. It's human nature to believe that the conditions we're accustomed to seeing will always be there but it isn't true. You may pass on that great business opportunity for the security of your job, only to be a victim of downsizing a year later. Or you could go start that new business, only to find that your former boss leaves and you'd have gotten that promotion if you'd stayed. Either way, there's a risk, and a choice to make. 5. Can I give myself permission to be sad about the life I left behind? You may need a little time to feel sad about the life you're leaving behind before you can fully move on to a new one. That's OK. And it doesn't mean you're making the wrong decision by changing. (Here's more on how to let go of what's holding you back.) 6. Will I be able to handle it if things go wrong? This may be the fear that's really holding you back. And the answer to this question is almost certainly yes. Most people are more resourceful than we realize, and more able to deal with difficulty. If you're letting this concern stop you from making a change--don't. You can handle more than you know. 7. If not now, when? No one likes to think about this, but the fact is each of us has no idea how little or how long we have left on this planet. I'll always remember my high school friend Stephen who advised trying out many careers because, he said, "Your life is long. It wasn't for him: He died of cancer at the age of 38. Consult me or any other psychologist to deal with this issue from the roots. All the best you can consult with me too.

Is bright light therapy useful in non seasonal depression also. If yes how can be this done at home.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Bright light therapy is shown to be effective only I seasonal affective disorders particularly in mediterranean countries where sunlight is scarce or seen very less often. Also it remains only a adjunctive therapy in addition to medications and counseling. I doubt about its use in other types of depression particularly in indian subcontinent.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Hot Sex Makes Smart

Hot sex doesn't just blow minds it sharpens them. Getting lucky stimulates brain and helps fight dementia a study claims. Older guys who engage in lovemaking regularly have better brain health and are less likely to lose memory.

Men with active sex lives between the ages of 50 and 89 scored 23 percent higher on co genitive word tests and three percent higher on number puzzles says the researchers. Sex hormones like dopamine are linked to brain's reward centre and help co ognitive function.

6 Signs of Avoidant Personality Disorder, 2nd Most Common Psychiatric Disorder

M.Sc - Disaster Mitigation, MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
6 Signs of Avoidant Personality Disorder, 2nd Most Common Psychiatric Disorder

Feelings of inadequacy for long durations and being extremely sensitive to what others think of you is a disorder called avoidant personality disorder symptom. Such feelings of inadequacy in turn push the person to become isolated from the society and the person avoids people, work, and other activities. Social and occupational functioning is affected as the person is extremely sensitive and has very low self-esteem. Symptoms of avoidant personality disorder are:

  1. Avoiding social interactions: people suffering from this disorder avoid almost all sorts of interpersonal contact since they lie with the fear of rejection, disapproval and criticism.
  2. Avoiding risks: they avoid taking personal risks or being involved in activities which seem new, because they fear that they will embarrass themselves.
  3. Socially unplugged: they are not willing to get involved with individuals unless they are absolutely certain of being liked by the person.
  4. Preoccupied with negative perception: the idea of being criticized or rejected in social functions is so deep within their psyche that they are often preoccupied with only this thought in their minds.
  5. Inferiority complex: people suffering from avoidant personality disorder consider themselves as good for nothing, unappealing, and inferior to everyone else.
  6. Avoid intimacy: they are always reluctant to get into intimate relationships because they feel that they will be shamed and ridiculed. Because of such fears, they let go of relationships where they would have been genuinely cherished too.

The only treatment possible for this disorder is psychotherapy. While some people opt for long term therapy, most people usually visit a psychotherapist only when they feel overwhelmed with their fear and emotions.

MD Psychiatry, MBBS

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, I can understand what you must be going through. The symptoms that you have mentioned definitely suggests underlying psychological disorder. However, to understand the exact nature of the disorder, a detailed evaluation will be required. Depression and anxiety spectrum disorders are treatable. Depending on the exact diagnosis, treatment will include medications or psychotherapy or a combination of both. You should consult a psychiatrist and get yourself evaluated. Treatment is usually long term and you will need to be patient regarding the response. Best wishes.

My name is nayan, 28 year old male from bangalore. I feel I got anxiety disorder. I always feel a sense of fear. Kindly help me.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
As we are growing up, we learn many things from our elders and from the environment. Anxiety and fears are all because of our conditioning since childhood. It will be very important to know, in what situations you feel more anxious. Even about the unknown fear, you need to think more and understand what are you scared of? and what has caused this? once you know this, then it will be easier for you to get rid of this. A counsellor will be of great help. Unless you are diagnosed with" anxiety disorder" by a psychologist or a psychiatrist, please don't label yourself with anxiety disorder. If any medication is given to you, please take it under doctor's supervision. Do not give negative messages to your own self. Have faith in your abilities. Try to improve your physical and mental strength. Good luck.

Hi Excessive saliva because of Parkinson's for 2 yrs. She uses tissue paper every minute. How to fix this problem.

Master of Speech Language Pathology
Speech Therapist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Excessive saliva is a common problem in parkinsons disease. There are medications available for the same. However, medications will reduce the saliva in the mouth making it dry and difficult to chew and swallow food which needs moist environment in the mouth. I suggest you to have a check on her posture, swallowing frequency. Ask her to swallow saliva as much as possible. Use slight inclined position while she is seated.

I am diagnosed with Epilepsy and its been 3 years that I am on medication. I am taking Epilex Chrono (600 mg) in morning and same at night with 100 mg of Lamictal. Though my EEG report is normal now so just wanted to know how long treatment will take and I have to take medicines.

DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Rajkot
In case of epilepsy since you are on meds for 3 years, if the seizures are completely controlled and eeg is normal, a trial of gradual taper of medicines can be given. But always taper medicines after consulting your neurologist. And there is always a chance of recurrence so that risk has to be borne in mind.
