I am having severe mood swings problem. Sometime too happy, sometimes too irritated, sometimes feel like kill myself or other person. What should i do ? Please advice.

You need to rush to meet with a counselor first and then perhaps on that person’s recommendation you may have to meet with a psychiatrist. The earlier the intervention, the better the prognosis. All the symptoms and the mood swings are not sounding too good. I also suggest that you take your parents with you. They will be able to throw some insight into your developmental history to come to some understanding of your condition. Life is very precious and your condition will prompt these type of feelings and reactions. Do not encourage those thoughts and when you meet with the counselor you must make mention of your violence towards yourself and others. God forbid that it should become an impulse and a precious life may become lost. Please get actively involved in vigorous exercise, have a healthy diet, and make sure that you get at least 8 hours of sleep every day. Whatever you do, always remember to be responsible, to be respectful, and to be functional. Pray to god regularly and learn to love yourself, if nobody else does. Please cooperate with both the therapies until you have fully recovered. A neglected condition can get so bad that you will not be in a position to judge for yourself and then others may have to make decisions for you, forever!

I am very short tempered because of which I end up getting angry and frustrated. Such a behaviour results in hurting my loved ones. How to control this?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Guwahati
Emotions are our feelings. Sometimes we are happy & sometimes sad, sometimes angry & upset, while sometimes calm & contented. Joy, sorrow, fear, grief, anger, jealousy, love etc are normal human emotions which every individual experiences. These emotions are there in everyone, but how one reacts to the emotions vary from person to person, based on his tolerance level, coping skills, patience etc. Anger is one such emotion, which do harm if not controlled. One does not have control over his emotions, but has control over his actions. Anger is a basic emotion which every human being experiences in response to life events or situations. If out of control it may harm in aspect of career, relationships & varied aspects of life, and also brings in immense feeling of insult, frustrations, disappointment, & other negative feelings within. Try the following measures to control short tempered nature: 1)First realize & acknowledge that you have the anger outburst problem, & stay aware & cautious about it. 2)Try to understand your own emotions especially those events, situations etc that triggers your anger. Whenever you face any such situations, stay alert & calm, try to avoid it or control it. 3)When you are angry, take a short break, move away from that place if possible, have a cup of tea or coffee etc to calm your mind. 4)Whenever you are feeling angry, try to interrupt the anger cycle in the following way: a)At that moment do not talk & try to divert yourself & control your anger first. In the state of anger you may say or do things which you may regret later after you calm down. B)Try to distract your mind by visiting a favorite website, listen a song on your cell phone, do something that comforts you or daydream about an activity of choice etc. C)Use countdown to distract your mind- start counting backwards from 100 to1. D)Use physical relaxation techniques like deep breathing exercise. E)Use mental relaxation techniques like positive thinking & imagery, where you imagine anything that gives you happiness. F)Just talk to someone with whom you feel comfortable and relaxed. G)Take your anger as a humor & laugh it away. Try till your anger calms down. 5)If any person or situation is triggering your anger repeatedly talk to the concerned person when you are in a calm & relaxed state of mind, or work on solving the situation. 6)Work on increasing the calmness of your mind, so that you do not break down easily in any situation. For that do physical activities like regular exercise, yoga, meditation, relaxation techniques like deep breathing exercise daily. Sleep adequately & maintain a healthy lifestyle. 7)Avoid substance of abuse like alcohol, cannabis etc, as these substances reduces frustration tolerance & makes the mind restless easily. 8)Try to be good listener & develop good communication skills, as proper communication solves many problems. 9)Learn to assert yourself, express your feelings calmly & directly, without becoming hostile & defensive. 10)Do not try to suppress your anger, but try to solve it. As suppressing anger leads to anxiety, depression, & other detrimental effects on the body within. If after trying above also you are not able to control your anger, then seek professional help. Consult a Psychiatrist who will evaluate you & advice you medicines or counseling sessions accordingly. All the best.

Your level of self-confidence can show in many ways: your behavior, your body language, how you speak, what you say, and so on. Look at the following comparisons of common confident behavior with behavior associated with low self-confidence. Which thoughts or actions do you recognize in yourself and people around you? So here are our three steps to self-confidence, for which we’ll use the metaphor of a journey: preparing for your journey; setting out; and accelerating towards success. Step 1: Preparing for Your Journey The first step involves getting yourself ready for your journey to self-confidence. You need to take stock of where you are, think about where you want to go, get yourself in the right mindset for your journey, and commit yourself to starting it and staying with it. In preparing for your journey, do these five things: Look at What You've Already Achieved Think about your life so far, and list the ten best things you've achieved in an "Achievement Log. Perhaps you came top in an important test or exam, played a key role in an important team, produced the best sales figures in a period, did something that made a key difference in someone else’s life, or delivered a project that meant a lot for your business. Put these into a smartly formatted document, which you can look at often. And then spend a few minutes each week enjoying the success you’ve already had! Think About Your Strengths Next, use a technique like SWOT Analysis Add to My Personal Learning Plan to take a look at who and where you are. Looking at your Achievement Log, and reflecting on your recent life, think about what your friends would consider to be your strengths and weaknesses. From these, think about the opportunities and threats you face. Make sure that you enjoy a few minutes reflecting on your strengths! Think About What's Important to You, and Where you Want to Go Next, think about the things that are really important to you, and what you want to achieve with your life. Setting and achieving goals is a key part of this, and real confidence comes from this. Goal setting is the process you use to set yourself targets, and measure your successful hitting of those targets. See our article on goal setting Add to My Personal Learning Plan to find out how to use this important technique, or use our Life Plan Workbook to think through your own goals in detail (see the "Tip" below). Inform your goal setting with your SWOT Analysis. Set goals that exploit your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, realize your opportunities, and control the threats you face. And having set the major goals in your life, identify the first step in each. Make sure it’s a very small step, perhaps taking no more than an hour to complete! Start Managing Your Mind At this stage, you need to start managing your mind. Learn to pick up and defeat the negative self-talk which can destroy your confidence. See our article on rational positive thinking Add to My Personal Learning Plan to find out how to do this. Further useful reading includes our article on imagery Add to My Personal Learning Plan – this teaches you how to use and create strong mental images of what you'll feel and experience as you achieve your major goals – there’s something about doing this that makes even major goals seem achievable! And Then Commit Yourself to Success! The final part of preparing for the journey is to make a clear and unequivocal promise to yourself that you are absolutely committed to your journey, and that you will do all in your power to achieve it. If as you’re doing it, you find doubts starting to surface, write them down and challenge them calmly and rationally. If they dissolve under scrutiny, that’s great. However if they are based on genuine risks, make sure you set additional goals to manage these appropriately. For help with evaluating and managing the risks you face, read our Risk Analysis and Management Add to My Personal Learning Plan article. Either way, make that promise!

Respected Sir Being anxious and having a heart rate of 168/min is definitely not ok. But since you mentioned that it is your maximum heart rate, it could be nothing as Holter generally measures maximum, minimum and average heart rates in 24 hrs. So if the doctor felt that your average heart rate is fine and there are no variations, you should be fine. However you could try yoga, relaxation exercises or just regular exercises to reduce your anxiety. Also make sure you sleep well and eat a balanced diet. If you still feel you are anxious, kindly consult with a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation and to get treatment recommendations. Thank you and Take care to remain Stress free.

Hello, thanks for the query. Zolfresh is a medication which should be used for a very short duration (say 2-3 days & no more!). So, inability to sleep despite using 10mg zolfresh indicates some form of stress/mental illness taking its toll on your mothers health. Since your father has passed away recently & one can understand how hard it is to cope up with demise of a life partner; it is another indicator of that stress or possible mental illness. Based on your information I would like to rule out old age (geriatric) depression or onset of dementia. Do revert back with detailed description of her symptoms so that I can help you. Otherwise you can consult a psychiatrist in person to get help. Good luck.

Due to the break up my friend is depressed she do not take her diet properly and becoming Insomniac.
What I can say you only is that this is not end of the world. We have to come across many failures in life. Life is very harsh but a true human being is that who make these failures his power and makes history. Make her realise her mistake and this you can do by a pure mind and hard work. Do not have a grudge against her in mind and think that god has some other more important work for you. These failures always teach us and I am sure you must have got a lesson by this breakup. Fix that lesson in your mind and move forward as if nothing had happened. Myself is a homoeopathic doctor and I will recommend you following homoeopathic medicine to take alongwith ignatia amara 1m (dr reckeweg) drink 5 drops every 3rd day--- passiflora -q (dr reckeweg) drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water daily night--------------------- report me after 1 week---------------

Dear Lybrate user No one is perfect in this world Everyone get nervous at some point of life ,some get nervous during Exam, Some get nervous during fights, Some get nervous in front of teachers it only depends on our approach, so its natural phenomenon But it does't mean that it cannot be change ,as I mentioned earlier it depends on your approach only. Think anyone as, as human whether boy or girl. When you approach to any girl think that she is also like you don't give extra importance to this topic, its time to focus on your career ,when you will be good in your career then you will get confidence automatically, practice to talk with yourself in front of mirror it will increase your confidence, motivate yourself, set some topics for everyday and try to complete your topic in the given time it will boost your confidence as well as will help to complete your course. You can take help of any counsellor regarding this ,if you need my help you can contact me .good luck.

Actually from past 1 year my memory is getting weaker alot. Now I'm forgetting even little things like in my studies as well. Can you plzz suggest me reason behind it and some medications. Thank you.

MBBS, MD (AIIMS, Gold Medalist), Diploma in CBT (Glasgow)
Psychiatrist, Delhi
At your age, this memory problem is probably a manifestation of what is known as a registration deficit. In order to clarify the cause, please get a complete hemogram, thyroid profile and vitamin B12/ vitamin D levels done. Any abnormality here will need correction. Additionally, a psychological evaluation for anxiety will be needed. Once you get these reports, please revert back. REMEMBER, THIS PROBLEM CAN BE TREATED, NOTHING TO WORRY AT ALL! I would have directly suggested you medicines as per your request, but the reality is that there are no tablets that improve memory (contrary to popular belief) without identifying the cause! We have to first identify the cause and then treat it accordingly! Don't fall prey to fake marketing claims of improving memory with magical pills. Take care! Don't worry and you will be alright!

Dear Jezkji. I can understand. Cross dressing tendency at your age is impulsive disorder which comes under a broad spectrum of obsessive compulsive disorder. As you are having this tendency for a few days, you should overcome it with strong will power and ignoring the urge. This is a psychological disorder and if you are unable to handle it now, you could need psychotherapy. Take care.

Infertility - Its Impact on a Person s Mental Health

Ph.D - Psychology, M.Phil - Clinical Psychology, MA - Psychology
Psychologist, Chennai
Infertility - Its Impact on a Person s Mental Health

Almost every man and woman craves to have a child they can call their own. This makes an inability to procreate one of the most dreaded situations. Infertility can be defined as the inability to conceive a child within 12 months of biologically appropriately timed intercourse. Infertility exacts a huge psychological toll on the person.

Infertility often triggers depression in a person. This may be acute and result from specific events such as the holidays, family celebrations of the news of a someone else having conceived a child or could be cyclic and coincide with phases of their fertility cycle. This depression could lead to problems at work and communication with the spouse.

Infertility can also make a person feel helpless and affect their self esteem. Infertility accompanied by depression can trigger the feeling of having lost control over one’s life and can make people withdraw into themselves.

An infertile person may also often feel guilty and make them blame themselves and their prior actions for the condition. This leads them to question their worthiness of being a good spouse and potential parent. A woman who has suffered from an STD earlier or has undergone an abortion earlier can become obsessed with blaming herself for being infertile. 

This affects their daily lives and ability to work. An infertile person may also feel guilty for having robbed their partner of the chance to become a parent. This can put a strain on their relationship and in many cases lead to a broken marriage.

When they find themselves unable to conceive a child, a couple may try to time their intercourse with ovulation tools, such as an ovulation thermometer etc. and may try different positions, some of which may be fairly uncomfortable. They may also end up having intercourse more often than desired. In order to prevent sperm from leaking out of the vagina, a woman may also find herself lying in an awkward supine position after intercourse. A combination of all these factors makes the act a chore and with time can lead to a loss of libido.

Infertility can also trigger anger against life for having been treated unfairly or towards other parents. This may also be displaced towards their family and friends leading to situations where they feel ostracized and unsupported.

When dealing with infertility, it is important to understand that neither partner is to blame. Infertility is a physiological condition and can be treated in most cases. It is important for both partners to support each other during this process and if need be consult a counselor.

Dear, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. Take care.

Is there any complete cure for achizophrenia, anxiety and depression in ayurveda?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
There is no complete cure for schizophrenia, though in very rare cases remission has been experienced. Anxiety and depression can be cured depending on the severity and the cooperation of the patient. As for cure from Ayurveda for mental conditions, the claims are there but I have not witnessed any. For any chemical imbalance in the brain, psychotropic drugs are the only ones with known applications to affect the stability of the neurotransmitters.
