I am 27 year old female, got married at 22 after my btech. I am in psychological trauma due to so many issues happening with my life. I read and knew we have all the power to create anything or any situation favour to us. I am in deep sorrow for not happening things in favour to me at proper time. I get some suicidal thoughts but I have not courage. My husband almost left 2 kids to me, I am afraid of tomorrow. I either have no courage toto get divorce, or I can't stay alone. I am an optimistic person but it is not reliable to me. I don't have emotional security or any other relationships to cope up.

Breaking up is very difficult and if you don't have any backup plan it can be even more taxing. However, you cannot allow these limitations stop you, if this step is inevitable. There are a lot of people who will support you but you will have to gauge their motives. Where is your family of origin? They are the best support you can get because they can be relied on more than anyone else. If you are without friends that speaks volumes about your social skills and perhaps you will need to develop them to favour a good support system. Through all this you must remember that if it is so difficult for the adults, how much more harder will it be for the kids. So you will need to take the drastic step but make it with proper considerations. Many of us will not dare due to a lot of unnecessary speculation. But when the decision and action is taken, you will mostly fall in line. Hurting yourself is rather silly: no man is worth dying for!!!

What is difference between depression & schizophrenia. Whether they are curable or not.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
Depression is a state of mind, wherein a person feels low, sad and worthless for more than 2 - 3 weeks. The person loses interest in eating, daily activities, does not bother about personal hygiene, keeps crying, talks and thinks about suicide etc. There are a number of reasons that can cause depression. Depression is treatable with the help of medication and counselling. Schizophrenia is a mental condition in which the person loses touch with reality, may hear voices, have delusions, may have compulsive thoughts, may become aggressive sometimes, become suspicious all the time, may become suicidall etc. This is a more serious condition. The patient needs to be under medication life long. Psychotherapy along with medication, helps. If the schizophrenia is defected early and if the medication and therapy starts early, then the person can be given some occupational therapy and may learn to earn his/her living. Depression is curable in most cases. Schizophrenia is not curable, it has to be managed with life long medication and therapy.

I am 45 yrs old male. I have Dissociative disorders from last 3 months.what should i do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The causes of dissociative disorders are complex. There is usually a history of trauma, usually abuse in childhood. However, not all trauma survivors have it, so the diagnosis is not a simple cause and effect. If the relationship with your parents or guardians was insecure and you were abused, then you are more likely to use dissociation to protect yourself from the trauma. The combination of an insecure relationship, trauma and dissociation can result in a complex dissociative disorder. The purpose of treatment and self-help is to increase the links between your feelings, thoughts, perceptions and memories, and to help you develop a sense of empowerment. This will make you feel more complete and reduce inner disassociation that you may be experiencing. You need to find a counselor who knows to treat this disorder and it is usually a long term kind of therapy. Although there is no medication to treat this disorder but it helps to take medicine for depression, anxiety, insomnia, etc., which come along with this condition. In the therapy much of the focus is made on the discrepancy of what the person perceives, which is usually distorted, and the therapist will help you make the connections to the real facts, to the real person, to the true identity, and with constant dialogue and trust the facts can be separated from the distortions. Emotional therapy plays a very important role, especially related to fear. Exercise, good sleep, and a healthy diet is highly recommended.

I always remain nervous.Over the years my confidence has come down drastically .I am currently 36 yrs of age .Have consulted psychiatrist as well but no positive results.Everyday i go to office with a fear in mind that my boss will scold or shout at me .Such types of unknown fear keeps coming in my mind.I have anxiety problems.Due to that i have bp problem as well .Pls suggest me something how can i overcome this problem as i have loads of responsibilities on my head.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The loads of responsibility do not augur well for someone with anxiety disorders. You have been stressed for years and that is taking its toll and may only worsen. You must learn to delegate work responsibilities and organize yourself well. Under stress the mind is very suggestive and it does so by proposing all the worst case scenarios, every time. That accounts for your BP. What you have not done so far is to seek help via counseling. This is extremely important and could have helped you recover a long time ago. It is still not too late. Also you need to do some vigorous exercise, as permitted by your doctor. Exercise makes the heart grow larger and a large heart pumps more blood to all extremities and it pumps it more efficiently, with fewer beats. Under those conditions, your response to fear will be far superior to the normal population who do not exercise. Also you need to train the brain through Yoga and meditation to remain calm, and to handle situations with a lot of composure. You could learn some stress management skills too. Do not take too much of responsibility and if it is already too much, reach out to your boss who will gladly help out. All these measures will increase your confidence and composure. Eat well, sleep well and handle your emotions, especially fear well, with the help of a counselor. Things will brighten up and stress will become a distant dream.

7 Ways to Remember Anything Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Dear Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

Hi i Am married for 12 yrs and want to be loyal to my wife. We don't yet have children and don't have a diagnosis of why. But my problem is more psychiatric now. My wife and me used to have a very loving relationship for couple of years. But slowly we had several arguments over silly things over the years and she kept blowing things out of proportion. I had an affair. I ended that and my wife though upset, also understood that situations drove me to it and her mistake also there for fighting immaturely over silly things. But my best friend who was supportive to us in the troubled times is now having an emotional affair with my wife. I don't think they had a sexual relationship, but she is emotionally attached to him and her text messages to him say she loves him. After all this; my emotions are in a turmoil and I tend to seek love outside and now talk to a couple of women intimately. I fear am turning into a love addict or something. My sexual relationship with my wife has been just once in a month or even less for nearly a year now. I know it's not a physical problem that I have and purely psychological. I have not confronted her or anything. But she knows I suspect her of having a relationship with him, but still continues to text him and such behind my back. At times she also acts loving with me. Our relationship has become like actors with no idea of what is true or not. Am 40 and she is 35. We are also running out of time to have a child. But in all this state I can't seem to want a child and she too refuses treatment. It's a stalemate now and I don't know how to solve the problems and which to tackle first. I am aware that a relationship has to be built on trust and such, but don't know how to break out of this vicious cycle and my seeming addiction of running after women.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These relationship problems are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

I'm not attracted to wife after she got fat. But I am very much interested in sex. I could not tell her the reason and I do not want to hurt with this chilly reason. But I love my wife. Please suggest the solution. Love marriage 3 years back and We have 2 years old kid.

Becoming fat is common thing in this current trend. If you are bothered by this, You can do certain things to change the situation. Insist your wife to go for a walk early in the morning for about half-an-hour. Tell her to talk nutrients food and on a healthy diet. To make her satisfied, you can also go with her in the morning which will help to boost your metabolism as well. If you could see that your wife is reducing weight, working on to reduce the weight, hope your hesitation will also get resolved. Weight reduction will not alone helps for satisfied sexual relationship, also helps her stay fit.

What is the symptoms of Peri-Menopause stage? I get heart palpitation during night times. Feeling depressed. How to control them.

MBBS
General Physician, Malappuram
Heart Palpitations May Get Their Start in Perimenopause While there are no hard statistics on how many menopausal women experience heart palpitations, Portman estimates that 25 to 40 percent of women going through menopause will develop them. They tend to be even more common in women going throughperimenopause, the four years or so preceding menopause. “That’s when hormones seem to fluctuate the most,” Portman says. However, it’s unclear whether the hormonal changes that come with menopause are directly related to the development of heart palpitations. Portman says studies have shown that epinephrine and norepinephrine, the neurotransmitters that regulate heart rate and blood pressure, tend to fluctuate in menopausal women. These neurotransmitters might one day be a target for specific treatment of heart palpitations associated with menopause.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Physical illness can trigger depression

If you have depression, a thorough physical exam and careful medical history should be elicited to pinpoint a physical source of the problem for an appropriate treatment.

In depression, it is important to not only look for what?s going on in the mind and brain but also check for what?s going on in the body. Many medical problems have been linked to mood disturbances.

Over fifty percent of heart attack survivors and those with cancer report feeling depressed. Depression is also linked to diabetes, Parkinson?s and other chronic conditions.

Depression too can affect the course of a physical disease. Depression is linked with slower recovery from a heart attack and an increased risk for future heart trouble.

Thyroid disorders also affect mood. Overactive thyroid can cause mania and under active thyroid can cause depression. Other medical conditions associated with mood disorders include certain neurological conditions (multiple sclerosis, Parkinson?s disease, Alzheimer?s), other hormonal imbalances and lack of vitamin B12.

My wife is not happy because she think that I do not understand her but from my side I am trying my best. Acc to my duty schedule I stay with her 35 days in 2 month. Acc to her she need emotional support from me but I do not knew how should I do. Becoz as I start trying something she says that it will not work even before I started. Me myself got demotivated. When we stay together we always fight but when I went on duty she need me there. When I stay with her she says that I am with her But I am Not with her. She thinks that I need only sex from her. Yes I need sex but not only sex I need need her love n I want to give her love but my 100%(according to me) is 10% of what she need. She says that she need only emotional support and love and she should feel that I am loving her But I do not know how to do it. This is the root cause of our problem that when we stay together we fight and when we stay away we need each other. Pls guide us so that we can live happy married life.

The question you asked is pretty difficult to solve by texting. Basically there is absolute lack of bonding between you and your wife and that has lead to misunderstanding. Proper communication is the key to quality solutions. Make an effort to have quality one to one talk with her in an atmosphere of peace and joy. If you can not handle all this then avoid feeling frustrated and connect me directly via this platform either in person or online/Skype. A relationship coach, marriage mentor and expert sexologist needed for both of you because here both of you are right as well as wrong. That's how the relationships are. Move on connect me if you really looking for great marital and sexual relationship chemistry.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Hello Dr. I'm 26 year old, I had relationship with one of my old collage friend. When we were in college we know each other only by faces but after completion of college she got married. And contacted me via social media. She always try to understand me and showing caring for me. After long chat we decided to meet. And after long caring and understanding relation she started convincing me about her love and feeling for me. I was quite confused she is married yet why she is loving me? But she continues. Share each and every thing about her past and present life. And started telling me that I am her priority then her husband. I was not interested in such talks of her. She cried lot of times in front of me. After all her emotional attachments I get involved in her unknowingly. But after some time I come to know that she had relationships before me with some guys yet she was married. Then she started ignoring me and and get closer to her computer class friend. We had lot of fights. She was so caring me and started insulting me, by telling it was my mistake that I get involved in her. I have taken revenge by telling everything to her husband. Her husband understand the situation and after her crying drama accepted her mistake and herself. She was so caring towards me. I can't stop thinking all about her that she is bad girl or good girl? I feel her presence in everything I do. Sometimes I'm getting angry and sometimes sad by remembering her. I want to forget her good or bad memories. Actually my mind changed towards all girls because of her. I tried to tell her all this. But her answer was it's your problem, let me live my life. Kindly understand my situation and advise how can I over come from this mental situation. I tried meditation and involve myself in different things but somewhere my mind sticks and starts think about her only.

Hi lybrate-user, I believe time is the best healer. One should not ruin their life for someone who is so busy in their own life to recognize your difficulties. She was just doing time pass with you- if she was serious she should have taken serious steps to be with you. Now that you have taken revenge also, there is nothing left to ponder over. One more thing, you are generalizing that every girl is like this. That's not true, no two people are same not even our two fingers, so just because one bad experience we can not get a major set back and veil our eyes. We should be open to experiences everyone has good or bad experiences, imagine that you were not married to her, if you had got married, her disloyalty would have made you go mad. So be thankful to god for getting rid of someone who just used you as a play toy. Time will make you forget her. Good effort by you to try meditation and different things. Do not tie your existence to a person, place or thing. There is a lot to be done and grow. You will be married soon with a beautiful wife- think about a bright future work towards it. Let bygones be bygones. All the best.
