Dear Lybrate User, It appears that your mom is worried about her physical health. It also appears to me that she is having lots of stress. It is possible that she has certain things on her mind which are very disturbing and she is unable to share it with anyone. This is probably causing her anger. If possible, help her in expressing her feelings. Try to see the world from her view point, try to understand her situations. Express your own concerns and tell her that you love her a lot. Also tell her that she is valuable. All she needs is love and care and it is to be expressed verbally. You may also take her to a Counsellor, where she will get an outlet to express her feelings and the counselling process will help her to understand what is happening to her and how to cope up with her difficulties. All the best.

Causes and Symptoms of Anorexia

Ph. D - Alternative Medicine, PG Diploma in Psycological Counseling
Psychologist, Mumbai
Causes and Symptoms of Anorexia

Anorexia is a common eating disorder which is identified by abnormally low body weight, intense fear of gaining weight and a distorted perception of body weight. The problem is not only related to your dietary patterns but it also related to your mental state. People with this disorder are generally self-conscious, have a low self-esteem and are overly concerned about their external appearance.

Causes of anorexia

  • Biological factors - These factors represent that anorexia can be congenital or it may have developed over time. Congenital means that disorder is hereditary in nature and is passed on from the parents to the offspring. On the other hand, it may develop in people who are more sensitive and have an inclination towards perfection.
  • Psychological factors - Anorexia can also be caused due to certain specific personality traits and emotions that might be possessed by you. For instance, anorexia is more likely to happen to young women who are really worried and conscious out the way they look externally. Additionally, people who are either emotionally not too strong or suffer from anxiety issues can develop this disorder easily.
  • Environmental factors - The type of a cultural set up you are living in also plays an important role in developing this disorder. For instance, the western culture is all about slim and fit people, whereas the oriental countries are not so bothered about the same.

Symptoms of Anorexia

Emotional symptoms - This category of symptoms includes behaviors and a thought process aimed towards losing weight and minimizing your food intake. Some of the symptoms belonging to this type include:

  • Forceful vomiting to lose calories
  • Staying hungry
  • Excessive physical activity or exercise
  • Denial of hunger
  • Social withdrawal
  • Irritability
  • Depressed moods

Physical symptoms - These symptoms are self-explanatory and are clearly visible on the human body. These include:

  • Extreme weight loss
  • Thin appearance
  • Abnormal blood count
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Dizziness or fainting
  • Discoloration of the fingers
  • Hair that thins, breaks or falls out
  • Soft, downy hair covering the body
  • Constipation
  • Low blood pressure

I was a happy and good minded guy still somewhat I am but its gone bad when somehow I started spending most of my time at home . My cousin gave me all kinds of Hollywood TV series and I was never this guy of giving such time to any kind of series but I started watching them everyday and 5 hours a day . It all started 2 years back . I saw a lot of changes in me at that time , I started going late and I was unable to get rid of it. I started spending giving time to TV series and I started liking it a lot. Because of all this I never felt but I had developed social anxiety issue . I was not believing at first that a guy like me I was use to so confident and had killer instinct , how was I having social anxiety and somewhere still it is present in me . Whenever I have to go out for some work I hated going out . All this was because I started blushing for no good reason . In metro whenever any one use to stare at me I started blushing but earlier it was not a big deal . Even in simple conversation I use to go red and it was awkward very awkward for me . Its been 2 years now I always had fight with it . I never used any drug . Now its much better to some extent but still even today whenever I am put on spot it happens again . I do not know even if I could get rid of it completely . I just want it to be over .

Yes, you can get rid of it completely. This is particularly true, because, in the past you were that way. It can be done either with or without medicines depending upon your choice. F you want a more rapid effect, medicines can be combined with psychotherapy or advanced counseling or behavior therapy. So the bottomline is it is completely possible to make you the way you were earlier. If you only want to take medicines, I will need a few more details like any other medical or psychological problem that you have or may have had earlier, history of bipolar disorder either in yourself and your family. These issues are best addressed in an in person interview, but if it is not possible, a somewhat toned down version can be tried online as well. It is upto you, take care!

I am getting lazy day by day. Can you please advice me how to increase my concentration in my studies. Im an engineering student.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
YOu have to look for anemia and hypothyroid by doing blood CBC and TSH. CONCENTRATION TIPS Here���s some tips to get into a state of deep concentration where work / or studies flow easily so that you can do well in examinations/ and or do your work well. 1) Cut Off the Noise Getting into a state of concentration can take at least fifteen minutes. If you are getting distracted every five, you can���t possibly focus entirely on your work. Request that people don���t interrupt you when working on a big project. If you are required to answer phones and drop-in���s immediately, schedule work when the office is less busy. 2) Structure Your Environment The place you work can have an impact on your ability to focus. Try to locate yourself so you are facing potential distractions such as doors, phones or windows. This way you can take a glance to assess sounds that would otherwise break your focus. 3) Clarify Objectives Know what your goal is clearly before you start. If you aren���t sure what the end result is, the confusion will make it impossible to focus. 4) Divide Blobs. If you have a large project that needs work, clearly identify a path that you will use to get started working on it. If the sequence of actions isn���t obvious, it will be difficult to concentrate. Taking a few minutes to plan not only your end result, but the order you will complete any steps, can save hours in wasted thinking. 5) Know the Rules Get clear on what the guidelines are for the task ahead. What level of quality do you need? What standards do you need to follow? What constraints are there? If the rules aren���t clear from the outset, you will slip out of concentration as you ponder them later. 6) Set a Deadline Deadlines have both advantages and disadvantages when trying to force concentration. A deadline can make it easier to forget the non-essential and speed up your working time. If you give yourself only an hour to design a logo, you will keep it simple and avoid fiddling with extravagant designs. Time limits have disadvantages when they cause you to worry about the time you have left instead of the task itself. 7) Break down Roadblocks Roadblocks occur whenever you hit a tricky problem in your work. This can happen when you run out of ideas or your focus wavers. Break down roadblocks by brainstorming or planning on a piece of paper. Writing out your thought processes can keep you focused even if you might become frustrated. 8) Isolate Yourself Become a hermit and stay away from other people if you want to get work done. Unless your work is based on other people they will only break your focus. Create a private space and refuse to talk to anyone until your work is finished. Put a sign on your door to steer away drop-ins and don���t answer your phone. 9) Healthy Body, Sharper Mind What you put into your body affects the way you concentrate. Nobody would expect peak performance if they showed up drunk to work. But if you allow yourself to get chronic sleep deprivation, overuse stimulants like caffeine or eat dense, fatty foods your concentration will suffer. Try to cut out one of your unhealthy habits for just thirty days to see if there is a difference in your energy levels. I���ve found even small steps can create dramatic changes in my ability to focus. 10) Be Patient Before I write an article, I often sit at my desk for a fifteen or twenty minutes before I put finger on the keyboard. During this time I feel a strong urge to leave or do something else. But I know that if I am patient, I���ll stumble upon an idea to write about and enter a state of flow. Without a little patience, you can���t take advantage of flow when it rushed through you. If you need strong concentration I recommend periods of 90-120 minutes. Any less than that and you will waste too much time getting started before the flow can continue. More than this is possible to sustain focus, but you will probably benefit from a quick break. These are the general guidelines for concentration, studying well or doing your job. Regards.

Every cigarette you smoke will affect your erectile capacity, and in the long run it can lead to impotence. The nicotine in tobacco smoke is a vasco-constrictor which means that it narrows the blood vessels and reduces the blood supply. The penis gets erect from the pressure of the blood that rushes to it when you get sexually aroused. But because of the poor blood flow, it can decrease in its capacity to remain rigid for sexual penetration. Smoking can also affect men's sperm, which can reduce fertility and also increase risks for birth defects and miscarriage. You are well advised to quit immediately.

Sexual Abuse - Mental and Psychological Effects on Children

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DPM Psychological Medicine
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Sexual Abuse -  Mental and Psychological Effects on Children

Child sexual abuse is a pressing issue in society today. Statistically, there has been a considerable increase in the number of cases related to juvenile sex abuse over the past decade. Most of the cases report the abuser to be a close family member or a family friend rather than a complete stranger.

Future Consequences-

  1. A sexually abused child may develop severe mental health conditions and have major difficulties coping with as an adult. One of the most common disorders affecting survivors of child sexual abuse is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This involves the individual reliving the trauma all his/her life, thus leading to panic, stress and difficulties in living a healthy life in the longer run.

  2. The individuals who were abused as a child normally suffer from a very low self -esteem. They continue to blame themselves for the events that occurred and hence have a rather demeaning view of themselves, leading to adjustment issues in the future.

  3. They may also be diagnosed with clinical depression owing to the previous trauma. This hampers the everyday functioning of the individual. The individual may continue to relive the past traumatic events in the mind that further fuels their depression and contribute to the vicious cycle, eventually.

  4. Most often, survivors of child sexual abuse have a rather impulsive nature owing to the hampered functioning of impulse-control. They have lesser control over their emotions, especially anger and are rather quick to act on it.

  5. Because of all the complications, they might be less socially competent and thus fail to build firm peer relationships. They grow up to be adults with severe trust issues; they are hence, often side-lined because of their cynicism which leads to further depressive symptoms.

  6. Genophobia or the fear of sex is another complication that they may experience as adults. They may avoid sex altogether or engage in sexual activities that are rather violent in nature. Some survivors may develop certain sexual fetishes that can be rather dangerous; the most common being ‘paedophilia’ or the sexual arousal involving prepubescent children.

Conclusion-

The seriousness of the condition is often undermined. In treatment, various therapeutic techniques are used according to the need and age of the patient. Therapists work to promote positive thinking among the sufferers so that it becomes easy for them to accept their past and move on in life with a better outlook. With proper guidance and help, the individuals are able to overcome their mental health issues and live a wholesome life.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

Don't think about suicide, first lets work on your main problem of erectile dysfunction. Do PC muscle exercises. Flexing and strengthening your pubococcygeus (PC) muscle can help you exert more control over ejaculation. (Note that these are also called Kegel exercises, which you might have heard about women doing. The muscle is the same in both sexes.) Locate your PC muscle. Put one or two fingers right behind your testicles. Pretend that you are urinating, then try to stop the flow with a quick muscle contraction. That muscle you just used to stop the flow from the bladder is your PC muscle. Flex the muscle regularly. Try to do 10 to 20 squeezes in a set, 2 or 3 times a day. Do a set whenever you're bored or stationary—like when you're sitting at your desk or in traffic. No one will be able to see that you're doing them. Squeeze your PC muscle when you feel ejaculation coming on. Once the muscle is strong enough, you should be able to hold it off just like stopping flow when urinating. Consult for same.

At that age there are various losses connected to health, power, work, prestige etc. Such losses can make a person sad, angry, afraid etc. Counselling helps in such cases to help the person understand the changes happening with growing age and coping and managing with them more effectively without getting angry and aggressive.

Sir I am a 33 yrs old male, suffering from right sided hemiplegia from the past 20 yrs. I have undergone herbal, allopathic, ayurvedic and homeopathic treatments but nothing has helped me till now. Due to this problem I cannot even walk straight, during walking I have a tendency to fall on right side, my whole right side has become stiff. Currently I am under homeopathic treatment by a classical homeopath, my ct scan reports shows a pinched nerve behind the right ear, due to which I experience noise in my right ear during swallowing. I also suffer from phobia, and panic attacks. Homeopathic drugs has given me a momentary relief in my anxiety. I also experience loss of energy. Please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The news is unfortunately not encouraging: hemiplegia is not curable but it can be treated and some improvement of functions and some relief of discomfort may be pursued. You need to definitely go for physiotherapy, regularly. There are exercises to improve some functions over a period of time. In early childhood, it was possible to train the brain to use alternate neural pathways called neuroplasticity that could have been explored. Now that is not possible due to your age. An occupational therapist will also help you become a functional person so that you could do something in life. I suggest you explore swimming with an assistant because any movement that coordinates the left and right movement will open up some possibilities. Regarding the phobia and panic attacks, though not directly connected to hemiplegia, they may be a result of the frustration and other factors that have indirectly influenced you emotionally. You could explore these with a counselor and clear the fear-related reactions you have. But you must persevere and I hope you are receiving a lot of support from the family, without which life can become very difficult. Faith and hope must be cultivated and through discussion with a professional some role can be identified for you. You do have a purpose in this life, in this very condition to contribute, even successfully. Keep the search going. I like your spirit and this will not go unrewarded, if you persevere.
