As you are growing older and wingle you need some company and this is normal as you have maternal instinct going on. Consider that, You do breathing excercise/ getup earlyin the morning/ thing positive. Know that millions have turned their lives positive. And they have accepted their lives. Restructure your lifestyle and do some work. Reverse sleep rhythm and do some work or do night shifts. Keep your mind active. You have to light your own inner light /that is genius.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Probably you are becoming dependent on chatting with girls. You seem to be having few neurotic traits like nail biting, lip biting etc. Though all these has not affected your studies, it has affected your quality of life. So it is better to go for treatment. Medical treatment including psychiatric treatment is free in all government hospitals - state or district of primary health centers. Though not all the days, at least once a week one psychiatrist will visit. If you are in a college or office, the same place may have counselors who will refer you at appropriate time to a psychiatrist. It is your right to take health care without money. Please utilize it.

My voice is very low which is not heard from 2 or more Meyers so please suggest any medicine or any other suggestions.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - Is It a Common Form Of Anxiety?

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - Is It a Common Form Of Anxiety?

Anxiety and stress are regular occurrences that happen to all individuals in certain situations. But if these become habitual and take place in excessive frequency, then it is symptomatic of a psychological problem. Anxiety disorders require proper treatment through counseling and therapy for leading a healthy stress-free life.

Anxiety impacts each person at a different level and is accompanied by various types of irrational phobias. Hence it differs from case to case. There are a few general types into which anxiety disorders can be categorized. Some of these types are as follows:

  1. Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): This kind of anxiety is constant and vague and does not appear to stem from any specific factor. Those suffering from it are affected during all waking hours and even in sleep when it is disturbed and irregular due to unending stress.
  2. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD): A person suffering from ocd experiences uncontrollable compulsions and is unable to keep from obsessing over issues of trivial nature. This manifests itself in definite behavioral patterns which become rigid and inflexible.
  3. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): This is an extreme form of anxiety disorder that is caused when the patient experiences a traumatic event or life-threatening accident that leaves a mental scar. It takes the form of panic attacks, nightmares, sudden mental breakdowns, hyper vigilance, and excessive nervousness.
  4. Panic Disorder: The patients of this disorder experience sudden panic attacks which occur frequently without any specific trigger. It is also accompanied by the fear of having such attacks, as well as a fear of being in places from where it is difficult to escape in the event of an attack.
  5. Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD): Also known as social phobia, sad causes a person to be in constant fear of being negatively viewed by people. It involves constant fear of public humiliation and also gives rise to performance anxiety or stage fright.

How to Recognize An Anxiety Disorder?

There are many symptoms of anxiety disorders which have both physical and emotional symptoms. Following are the most common signs of chronic anxiety:

General Physician,
EPILEPSY OR FITS (As laymen say )
***********************************************
Seizure is a sudden change in behavior that is the consequence of brain dysfunction.
Approximately 0.5–1% of population has epilepsy.
ome seizures are provoked i.e. that occur in the metabolic derangement, drug or alcohol withdrawal and in situations like acute paralysis or acute encephalitis. Such patients are not considered to have epilepsy because these seizures would not recur in the absence of the provocation.
Less than 50% of epilepsy cases will have an identifiable cause such as head trauma, brain tumor, paralysis, infection, brain malformation etc.
Having one seizure does not always mean that the patient would always get a seizure.
One episode of seizure may not require treatment.
Hospitalization is required in the first seizure only if it is associated with prolonged post seizure altered level of consciousness.
Patients with unprovoked seizure may not be allowed to drive for some time.
In children, seizure can occur with high grade fever.
In adults, the first episode of seizure may be due to worms in the brain. In such a situation, it may be necessary to do an MRI test.
A patient with seizure can get married, live a normal life and produce children.
It is a misnomer that during a fit you need to make the person smell a shoe.
During epilepsy, never put the fingers inside the mouth of the patient as you could be bitten. Use a spoon instead to prevent tongue bite.
A patient with epilepsy fall will have stiffness in the body; on the contrary, patient with cardiac loss of consciousness will fall loose.
A seizure that lasts for more than 5–10 minutes requires specialized attention.

Hi There, Dementia is a progressively deteriorating condition where there are memory problems along with the language, gait and also behavioral problems (sometimes psychosis as well.). All that we can do at this juncture, is stop the dementia from further worsening with the help of drugs and also control the behavior with the tablets. Surgery should be the last resort, though it is not usually recommended.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear from a deep relationship like love affair is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I am 30 years old male started with anti depressant treatment. Although I have been warned that I must stop smoking and alcohol during anti depressant medicine intake, still I might need to consume alcohol in official parties. My question is that if I intake alcohol some day, do I need to skip my anti depressant that day?

Hi , if the antidepressant drug that you are taking is sedating, and you take alcohol along with it, then you might feel very drowsy. If you drink regularly, ask your doctor for a non sedating drug. Consult privately for more help. Take care.

Sir go for a complete detox of your body with the help of ayurveda's panchakarma therapy. It includes abhyangam (massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. This wud rejuvenate your body - improving your work efficiency and bettering your sleep. It will also strengthen your nerves and muscles.

Size is formed based on your physical status. Size is not important for healthy sex. Do not compare with porn stars. They are different for our culture and system. They are foreigners we are indians. Indian size is small when compared to the foreigners. So do not compare with foreigners. If you want to improve also it is not possible. Do not search any medicine in websites. It is all false ads. No medicine and no way to improve the size of any one. It is a psychological feeling. So do not think too much about this aspect. It is better to leave it now. It is not healthy habit to think about it. Better to concentrate on your studies or your work. Be sociable and be friendly with others. Ok best of luck.

The symptoms of menopause include: ? Inhibition of menstrual phase of the reproductive cycle. ? Vaginal dryness. ? Loss of hair on the head and sometimes, spur of hairs on face. ? Mood swings. ? Hot flashes or night sweating. ? Abnormal weight gain. The symptoms of menopause can be highly distressing and may be alleviated by consuming a balanced and proper diet. Some of the foods that must be included in the diet of women undergoing menopause are melons, bananas, salmon, cabbage, cucumber, seaweeds, pumpkin, and apricots. There are also some foods that should be avoided or consumed in restricted quantities during this period. The foods that must be limited in the diet of menopausal women are: ? Potatoes must be restricted in diet. ? The amount of intake of caffeine must be limited and as such, the consumption of coffee, tea, and colas must be checked. Green tea can be a substitute for coffee. ? Refined foods must also be restricted in the diet. The most common refined food used in the households is refined oil like sunflower oil. It is recommended that you substitute these oils with unprocessed oils like wheat germ oil, virgin olive oil and flax oil. ? Women undergoing menopause must also cut back on their consumption of spicy foods. These foods may cause an inflammation of the lower part of the reproductive tubes, thereby aggravating the symptoms of menopause. ? Chocolates must also be restricted in the diet of women during menopause. ? Women in this phase of their lives are also advised to cut down on the intake of raw bran as this may inhibit calcium absorption leading to a weakening of the skeletal system. ? It is also recommended that you restrict the consumption of saturated fats like cheese and butter. ? Limit your intake of alcohol. ? Women must also limit their intake of salt as excessive consumption of salt may cause increases in blood pressure, palpitation, and other heart ailments.

If you have good salary. She listens your words. Now you are low. She is high. You have two sides are important. Better to talk to her in a pleasing manner. Tell the importance of your parents and your responsibilities. Give excessive priority to her in all aspects. Request to stay with my parents. Express your better loving words and impress her. She must listen your words. Do not argue and do not command. Because she is earning. You have no other options. Except requesting and pleasing manners is the only solution. Better to try to impress her. You have also talk to your parents. Take the advise of them. Ask what to do. Request there is any other solution in this side. If not then requesting wife is the solution. Do not think too much about this matters. It is common in all families. Everything come close one day. Do not spoil your health. Be friendly with others. Spend most of the time with friends and be sociable. Best of luck.
