I have a feeling that you are not really depressed. You are just feeling tired, bored and may be lazy. Please try to figure out what do you want to achieve in life. Have a dream/goal and start working towards it. Stop taking money from your parents, start earning for yourself. Become independent. Be in the company of friends with high aims and who have positive attitude. You are very young. You can shape your future. If you waste time presently in just sleeping and doing nothing, you will have trouble in future. Take charge of your life. All the best.

Tremors, feeling anxious or nervous, sense of panic, sweating, increased heartbeat, feeling of impending doom, stomach discomfort, dizziness etc are signs of anxiety. These can be debilitating. If the anxiety us overwhelming, consult a psychiatrist at the earliest. With the right medication and counseling, it is likely your symptoms will improve. Other than that, try yoga, deep breathing, meditation, moderate exercise, progressive muscular relaxation and guided meditation.  If you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately.

Hello I am 23 Year old male. I used to to chew gutkha but now I want to quit it. I used to chew 20 to 30 packets a day but from last 2 days I only used 2 to 3 packets in a whole day. I do not want to chew that too but one of my friend told me that leaving completely will do side effect is this right? And the other question is that I have some white cuts or only marks on both side in my mouth. But do not have any type of pain or any difficulty in talking or eating. Do I need to worry about that or is it normal? Thank you waiting for your response.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
Gutka is a substance of abuse. It is a dry preparation, that consist of betel leaf, areca nut, tobacco, catechu (extract of the acacia catechu tree) & slaked lime, with sweet or savory flavorings. Due to its stimulant activity, gutka is used as a recreational drug. As it is a harmful product & do not have any beneficial effect on the body, you better quit it as early as possible. Now-a-days de-addiction treatments are available for quitting all substances of abuse including gutka. Such treatment includes detoxification & rehabilitation program. Consult a psychiatrist & start your treatment at the earliest. With treatment you can quit the gutka immediately & you will not require the gradual reduction of the quantity of gutka, as advised by your friend. Medical detoxification is the first stage of de addiction treatment, when the addicted person is treated with medicines. The withdrawal symptoms which occur on sudden stopping of an addictive substance are managed through detox treatment. Medical detoxification systematically and safely will withdraw you from the gutka. The next phase is the Rehabilitation program which includes counseling sessions & other behavioral therapies. These sessions have important role in the de addiction process. Counseling sessions will help to enhance your motivation skills to stay sober, build skills to resist gutka use, replace gutka-using activities with constructive and rewarding non gutka-using activities, and improve problem-solving abilities. Behavioral therapy will work on interpersonal relationships and your ability to function effectively in the family and community. Detoxification is usually completed within 7-10 days & can be done both on out patient basis & as in patient. Rehabilitation program usually ranges between 30-90 days. Along with, mentally prepare yourself to stay away from gutka. Following measures will help you to prepare yourself mentally against the substance: oEducate yourself adequately regarding gutka & its ill effects. Acquire the required information by reading books, going through internet or talking to a professional trained in de addiction. OKeep reminding yourself of the benefits you will achieve after quitting gutka: After quitting you will have reduced risk of the many diseases caused by gutka including oral cancer and a variety of other medical conditions like heart attack, respiratory, cardiac depression, hypertension, reproductive health dysfunction etc. Your teeth will be saved from the unpleasant stains. Your mouth will be saved from the bad odor caused by gutka. Any sores or ulcers in your mouth will heal well. You can focus more on your relationships. Taking gutka might have affected your relations if your close ones were against it, or because you were so preoccupied with the substance, your relations suffered. You can participate actively in social gatherings as you will not have to stay away to hide your habit nor have to come out frequently to chew gutka. You will save the money you were wasting on gutka & use them for better purposes. OImagine & create a picture of a beautiful future in your mind of a life without gutka. Imagine how much you will benefit in your new life. In between your beautiful imaginary picture also imagine that you started to take gutka again. Then imagine how one by one the beautiful picture will shatter. Once you become aware of the consequences of relapse, you will also develop fear of relapsing. You will then stay more cautious not to start it again. OCount the first day of your quitting as day of a new start & from that day, live one day at a time. It is helpful if you can relate this day to some important events in your life like your birthday or birthday of someone close, anniversary, day of some achievements etc. On the morning of the second day, tell yourself that you are starting the second day of your substance free life & by night time thank yourself that you stayed substance free whole day & encourage yourself to stay gutka free in coming days too. Celebrate your victory of staying sober on completing 1 week, 2 weeks, then 1 month, 2 months, 3 months, and on completing one year celebrate the first birthday of your sobriety. This will encourage you to stay sober further. OAvoid triggering factors that may tempt you to take gutka. For example if the triggering factor was internal say some stress for which you got inclined to abusing substance, then work on the stress to remove it or take help of a counselor to overcome the stress. If the triggering was external, like some friends persuaded initially & you could not say no, in some specific event or situation you started taking gutka etc, then stay away from those situation. OImmediately after quitting, craving will be intense. But gradually with time it will reduce. So the initial days you have to be very careful. Keep yourself busy & diverted. OThrow away all gutka you have with you. Having them within reach may increase your temptation. You can use alternatives like lozenges or chewing gum. OStart new healthy habits & opt for a healthy lifestyle. OEat healthy diet. OJoin a support group comprising of people who came out of addiction & had undergone the same situation as you. You will get a platform to discuss your queries & together can motivate each other to stay sober & also help others to overcome addiction. Start your effort to quit gutka at the earliest. All the best. Regarding the white marks on your mouth, get yourself examined by a doctor. He will advice you the necessary investigations & give treatment if required.

I think I might have dissociative identity disorder, and I am seeing a psychiatrist this Wednesday. But I just wanted to know that, is it very likely that I might have it? Because, I do have all the other characteristics, but- I do have difficulty remembering things I did through out the day, I can't tell you quickly if I have had my meals, or where I left my keys, I keep losing track of my stuff.

Well the symptoms you have described suggest more towards a problem in concentration and attention which needs a detailed evaluation. Adolescents with thyroid problem, hormonal issues and stress can have these symptoms usually. These symptoms doesn't fit for a diagnosis of dissociative disorder. Kindly relax and let the psychiatrist help you. All the best.

Good Morning ~ Social anxiety disorder or social phobia is very common and I believe that you will self blame due to the feeling of guilt that accompanies this kind of social phobia. Blaming oneself is also a cardinal symptom of depression, and it is easily treated with medications. I am sure you will benefit from booking a paid appointment online and thus be able to help yourself with the right kind of treatment. I hope this helps for the initial contact and look forward to our private and confidential interaction online.

General Physician,
YOu have to decisively put the phone away and follow these steps 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

It all depends on our motivation and never give up attitude. No you will lose weight needed you change your thinking and attitude towards permanent natural weight loss. The major hurdle is self sympathy while following diet that we r cursing our body, feeling missing out on certain foods, etc. We should just feel that we are gifting ourselves good health and good looks....look at you after that,..a happier you... You should take a metabolism boosting diet....which includes lot of therapeutic foods like wheat grass, lemon grass, ginseng root extracts, cinnamon extracts etc. Take expert advice.

About the issue itself: Do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? Have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? You can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Any way you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (I suggest you join the Toastmasters Club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too!!!! There are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: Awareness, intimacy and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of social anxiety to disappear from your life for good.You can go for personal grooming classes too. While regular vigorous exercise develops your body, the regimen will also enlarge your heart and help you handle stressful situations much more competently than others who don’t exercise. Dress well, eat well, sleep well and conduct yourself well in social circles to build confidence. Perform well in your studies and work, and feel good about your achievements. You could also go for hypnosis sessions to build your self-image from within. Now, remember that all your problems are in your mind: spiritual wellness, faith and prayer will boost your confidence really well. Emotional wellness will take care of the fear factor. There are lots of affirmations, if said three times at a time, everyday, they will gradually strengthen your concept of yourself. Yoga and meditation will also build you up. Speaking to a counselor will give you personal assistance in pursuing these goals. The ultimate test of a personality is in the social context. The greater test is when we meet with the opposite sex. And the final test is when we have to bed and board with a member of the opposite sex in marriage. If you wait for that time to resolve it, it might be too late and traumatizing. Even if you are afraid of people, face your fear and see what happens. They are certainly not going to kill you. So what is the worst that can happen? Really nothing, but it will feel great to have friends and lots of companions in life. We are after all social animals, gregarious by nature and need each other. So don’t handicap yourself on this front. Attend a personality development class, personal grooming class, public speaking class, and conversation classes. It will help to do a lot of this with a close friend, if you have one. If not, find one. We are into relationships all the time. It is near impossible to live without people. All research has shown that living with someone gives us good health and long life too.

This problem cure is in your hand. If your will power is strong you should these bad habits otherwise there is no treatment. Try to leave these habits slowly and take proper nutritous diet like fruits salads, juice plenty of water etc. Eat less drink more. Whenever you r in need if smoke or drink you must divert your attention anywhere else or keep your self busy in other works.
