I have been suffering from adult adhd (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and some form of depression for some years now. It is distracting me from career development and and my social life making me absolutely mentally paralyzed. The most active symptoms that I am facing are as below: 1. Concentration problem 2. Confused thinking 3. Facial muscle twitching and expressionless talking. 4. High speech disorder/mumbles 5. Lack of confidence 6. Sudden blankness during communication 7. Career/future anxieties 8. Sudden mood swings 9. Word salad during communication 10. Memory issues (very short memory) 11. Dullness/depression 12. Poverty of speech would really appreciate your help on this as is even developing suicidal tendencies in me and ruing everything.

The symptoms you are facing are not unusual but the treatment approach may be in question. Have you not sought psychotherapy or counseling from a professional apart from the medication? if not this is the lacuna in your recovery program that is hampering you from making adequate progress. The problem in your case is usually one of the lack of cooperation. If you are determined, a lot of good work and results can be achieved. Any way the choices you have are very limited and you must do whatever you can now, and not wait for a later period because the condition will get worse and your cooperation will be even more remote. Please take it seriously and meet with a counselor and a psychiatrist. I have assumed that you are already on medication although you have not mentioned that. But if you are not you need both therapies to successfully work through this situation. It might be worth going to a clinical psychologist for a thorough testing to be absolutely sure that it is adhd that you have and that there are no overlapping pathologies to compound the condition. It will also help gear the treatment in the desirable direction.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 AM and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times, "Practice makes Perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing . Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6AM. Example some people they don't like Mathematics but it is essential for Life everyday and every time we are depended on Mathematics, Right from Doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds It is like love issues. still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person or audio/video. please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

To quit smoking, you should develop a strong will power. You should be committed to it. First make a determination that you are going to leave smoking. Then start decreasing the number of cigarettes you smoke. Try to learn how smoking affects your health and your organs. See the effects of smoking. Put these deadly pictures in front of you. These pictures will certainly make you to cut down your cigarettes. Tell everyone that you are not smoking from this day. Take your kith and kins support also. That is very important. Avoid smokers company. It will take time to stop smoking. Don't give up, keep trying and one day you will succeed. All the best.

Dear, depression is usually treated with a combination of medicines. Psychotherapy, meditation and life style changes. Out of which you are already having good medicines. I will help you with the other three methods. Once you master the other three methods, slowly you can taper the medicines, on your psychiatrist's advise. In a span of one year you will be able to stop the medicine completely because, by then you sould have learned how to manage your depression. Please post a private question to me with every detail. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, the problem which you have shared here is psychological in nature. When you are facing such kind of difficulties, it must be difficult for you to focus, understand and think in a clear manner. As a result, avoidance is another behavioral consequence. For anxiety, you must systematically desensitize yourself and expose to situations when you are doing signature or writing and at the same time change your cognitions/ thought patterns in a positive manner. Like if you feel people would notice me and make judgments while writing something on paper, then you may replace these thoughts with" I should concentrate more on the task at hand and ignore anxious thoughts. For this also, I would suggest you to consult a clinical psychologist who can help you overcome it and understand the problem in depth.

I have been smoking since last 6 years 7- 8 per day. I tied to quit many times by taking champix but failed. I have no cough or other problems but I suffered from pneumonia 2 times since I started smoking. Will I suffer from cancer or not. For quitting it what medication should I take.

Dear lybrate-user, 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.

For depression psychological counselling helps very much. Better to consult psychologist. Long time usage of medicine it is not good for health. Psychotherapy, behaviour therapy and life style modification therapy helps to you very much. Be friendly with others. Do not be alone. Feel always comfortable. Be sociable. Be maintain a very good relation with family members and friends. Best of luck.

hi rosy, your concern is right, your husband is very insure about the relation, first make him confident that you are in love with him and you will never cheat him. make him realize each and every day that you are very loyal and cant live without him, do not stop talking with others,this will create another level of problem in your life. spend more time with your husband.

Dear, psychiatric medications are not meant to get dependent on them. You may have got relief the first time in a month period and that is a good sign that your body had ability to recover fast. May be your anxiety was not complicated by factors which may be present now. This time if your anxiety is not getting controlled, its better either you visit another doctor or simply ask him to change medicines. If he doesn't do that, then its better you should try Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) this time. It is a form of psychotherapy and targets symptoms of anxiety very well. There are several techniques in this form of therapy and step by step, in a short period of time, you may easily regulate your symptoms. That means, CBT is a form of therapy which makes you the master of your symptoms, rather than medicines. Medicinal treatment assumes that all symptoms of anxiety (or any other disorder) are due to changes in brain chemistry but ignores several other psychological factors which can be dealt only with psychotherapy. Your psychiatrist has put you on medical treatment which is generally the first line treatment for any patient but good psychiatrists always ask to get psychotherapy too. Relapse of symptoms that has happened with you may be dealt better with CBT rather than medicines. This time you MUST consider taking CBT from a good psychotherapist. Psychotherapists are Clinical Psychologists who are trained to provide different forms of psychotherapy. As I can read here, you are able to realize that your palpitations are triggered by stress or other things. This awareness is sufficient to work on cognitive and behavioral aspects of your anxiety. If anxiety gets controlled by medicines, its good, but it is always recommended to take CBT.

Depression should be objectively treated as an illness. Low mood, withdrawn behaviour, lack of interest and motivation, low energy and anxiety are symptoms of the same. Please lift yourself and approach a psychiatrist asap, the earlier you start, the earlier you are likely to regain your ownself. Medicines alongwith psychotherapy should take care of you completely. Take care.

You are going through grief, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Dear friend, hang on. All the corporate honchos from bill gates to steve jobs to mark zuckerberg (and the list is endless) failed in some many attempts before finally succeeding. It is this demand to have a positive outcome in every effort which is creating this mischief. If professional settlement is what you desire, be single pointed and just keep working. Results are not in your hand. Just focus on your actions. You will eventually get what you want. Do not be static or rigid. Keep changing plans if they do not work. Take a professional help if you need. All the best.

My age is 23 yrs. Preparing for govt. Exams for last 2 years ,my exams are in next few weeks and this is going to be my last attempt as I already wasted two precious years of my life. Still I don't feel like studying I am tensed and stressed I know if I fail this time also my life is going to be miserable .all people around me of my age group have a job but still I am not working hard to get a job for myself. I think l lost interest in these exams. I am not a hard working person. Earlier I use to study but for few months I don't feel like doing anything just sitting thinking negative ,getting frustrated and stressing unnecessary instead of studying. I think this year also I am not going to be selected. I am getting frustrated as I know I am not working hard so I won't be able to clear this time also. Nobody in my family can understand what I am feeling and going through. I have a lot of personality issues timid ,introvert ,negative thinking ,rigid ,poor communications skills (I cannot even talk to sales or customer care people ,imagine my level )and many more bad qualities. Also have no friends for like so many years .These two years also enhanced my personality problems as I mostly stayed indoors and appearance wise also gained a lot of weight. I don't like going out. Also when I think of other alternatives (if not selected) I feel I won't be able to sustain as I am low confident and not able to make friends .i hv a negative outlook of life and I feel everything in future is going to be negative. Not moving forward in life no growth just stagnant like a tree ,all the people / friends I use to know are doing wonderful thing s in life and growing each day and I still the same as I used to be. Right now I'm feeling depressed and hopeless.

Dear Kajal, I can understand the problems you are facing and the situation you are in. I think it is best for you to consult a good mental health expert in your locality at the earliest. I can suggest a few things here, but considering that your exams are fast approaching, we need to work out a relatively quick and effective solution which may not be possible here.So please do not delay any further as the way you are feeling can be altered making your studies more effective and help you in succeeding in your exams. Take care!
