Personality Disorder

Dependent Personality Disorder

Dependent personality disorder (dpd) is one of a cluster of disorders defined by symptoms of anxiety and fear. The specific, identifying symptoms include:

  • being emotionally dependent on others; feeling they can’t take care of themselves
  • investing a lot of time and effort in trying to please significant people
  • displaying clingy, passive and needy behavior
  • avoiding disagreements for fear of losing approval and support
  • experiencing separation anxiety and intense fear of abandonment
  • finding it hard to be alone
  • putting the needs of others before their own
  • tolerating mistreatment and abuse for fear of disapproval and abandonment
  • being crushed, and feeling helpless, when relationships end – and forming new relationships as soon as possible
  • being unable to make even the simplest decision without the input and reassurance of others
  • rarely taking the initiative
  • avoiding personal responsibility
  • avoiding responsible jobs and careers that require independent, autonomous functioning
  • being over-sensitivity to criticism
  • feeling negative and pessimistic; expecting to disappoint and fail
  • having low self esteem and lacking confidence, including a belief that they are unable to care for themselves.
  • The cause of disorder is still unclear, and probably includes both a genetic and environmental component. Some researchers have speculated that it could be linked to an authoritarian or overprotective parenting style – which acts as a trigger for a genetic predisposition.

Treatment is usually initially sought for some other problem or concern – such as feeling overwhelmed – so that they can’t cope with life. Also, sufferers will often have a mood disorder so they seek help for depression or anxiety at first.

The normal treatment for this particular disorder is counselling or psychotherapy. However, the emphasis is short term therapy so the person doesn’t form a dependency – and then look to the counsellor to take care of them. Prognosis with support is generally good.

Hello, I would suggest that you take medication for a short time. That will help you control your symptoms. And while you are on medication, try other things I am suggesting and take proactive your to modify your life style and take charge of your life. Once you follow through regularly you will see positive changes in about 4 to 6 weeks. Once that happens you may consult your doctor again and explain him all that you are doing and try to stop medicine. It will work in your best interest. Both anxiety and panic attacks are manifestation of chronic stress in your daily life. Stress has become part of our daily life now. Due to being in this chronic stress there is lot of negative energy and thinking as well as behavior processes are triggered. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day.

This is all stress and worries of life. You may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

You have not mention here that you are in relation with her now a days or not. You are a student & you have to focus on your studies. When she comes in your mind take a deep breath and think about your priority that is your future. Again and again when her thought comes in your mind just do same as. When your mind recall your priority then only your future and future plans will come in your mind. This will take time but it will work. Have patience and be positive always.

I have a very important presentation to give in office on this Wednesday. From all my previous experiences I am pretty sure I will have an anxiety attack for sure. This presentation is very important for my career and I cannot afford to mess this one up. I read on net about beta blockers that help suppress anxiety in such stressful situations. There's this medicine by the name of Atenolol available in india. You think it can be of help? What dosage of it should I take? Please reply soon. As this is urgent.

Dear , why do you want to think and to be sure that you will have anxiety attack on wednesday. From the last time you had anxiety attack during presentation, many things changed, including your attitude. Then why apprehend? apprehension and generalization is the main problem. I suggest you to take on your problem head on, to be relieved off it. If you fear it, it will never leave you, whatever medicine you take. As an interim measure, you can have 25 grams of nuts (cashew, badam, peanuts etc) 2 hours before presentation. Chewing gum before presentation also will help you. Do not apprehend please. Then, after the presentation, contact me. I will teach you psychotherapy methods to overcome your anxiety disorder. Believe me, medicines cannot cure your anxiety disorder, but psychotherapy can. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Some time I get depressed deeply and think to commit suicide, how can I overcome from this emotions.
When our mind is hooked into past it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. I would suggest if you are unable to do. Things suggested here yiu should consult a psychologist or a psychiatrist. If yiu need medicines they will be able to priscribe you the same. Most time both medicine and counseling work. Best togather as a treatment. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis.

I get short tempered quickly and now a days I am forgetting things very fast. Can you help me in this?

MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
The symptoms you describe are more likely to be associated with altered mood states due to stress n anxiety. Irritability is just an outward manifestation of prevailing unrest in mind. You need to go down and visit a psychiatrist of your choice to get medical and psychological help. Believe me. You ll feel much different and positive.

Dear friend, we are taught and programmed to suppress all our emotions there is a suppressed emotion/desire/belief which may be disturbing you from your subconscious depths. You should let it surface, accept it and let it go on its own. You may have developed a love fixation in mind knowingly or unknowingly which may be just an imagined belief. You may seek a psychologists help.
