Good Afternoon ~ The need for closeness is quite common and the kind of thoughts and actions that you are describing does not seem to be healthy either for you or for the person who you cling on to. It seems like you are also going for such attachments just so your emptiness is filled even if it is for a very small amount of time. I also believe that you should be able to express yourself first and find out if the person you are want to become close to, also wants the same to happen to them. Otherwise you are setting yourself up for disappointment like you have yourself described. If you need further help or medications based on the symptoms that you would like to express during any private or confidential session, I highly encourage that and would recommend that you go ahead and book a paid appointment with the undersigned.

Hi, can depression, nervousness,tension b the cause f weight loss? If yes, then in what sense? Sm advise fr this? Thanx.

Hi, can depression, nervousness,tension b the cause f weight loss? If yes, then in what sense? Sm advise fr this? Thanx.
Hello lybrate user, yes there are many reasons for weight loss. 1. Depression depression has a number of symptoms. However, some people do not recognize that they have depression. They may feel low and not right but cannot say why. They may even think of it as just normal for them. Many people with depression can hide their true feelings from friends and family. Weight loss may develop due to not eating much. It is sometimes friends or family who may actually notice that a person has lost weight and it then turns out to be due to depression. 2. Dementia people in the early stages of dementia may appear to get by reasonably well but, in fact, they are not able to look after themselves very well. They may have a poor diet but appear happy in themselves. Again, it is sometimes friends or family who may first notice that a person is not right and has lost weight and it then turns out to be the early stages of dementia. Nervousness is not the reason for weight loss. Kindly consult any pediatrician or counsellor.

I am suffering from ocd anxiety since 7 years from childhood and now sleeplessness due to this which is the best treatment for me what are the causes of this, is.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Hello, welcome to lybrate as you said that you have been ocd since last 7 years, and now you have developed sleeplessness. Before prescribing you any medication, it is improtant to know few details about your illness such as type of ocd, whether on medications currently for ocd, any other symptom other than ocd. Ocd have comorbid psychological issues as well such as depression, bipolar, psychosis, anxiety issues as well. These co-morbidities if present can lead to symptom exaggeration as well development of new symptoms. Hence to start any medication, a detailed assessment is required first. If you feel like, than you can have a private conversation with me, where we can have a detailed discussion about your illness, symptoms, stressors, and treatment options available. You can consult me.

I have a stage fear.I can write down the thing. But it come to speaking with strangers or on stage everything gets blurred.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Stage fear can be quite paralyzing although it hardly has anything to do with the stage. It is really a fear of people. We are gregarious by nature, social animals and need each other for survival and growth. Yet, the very thing that should be our strength can become our weakness, for various reasons. This last fact has to be discovered: what happened to you to develop this extent of anxiety around speaking to people. Are you afraid of being judged and rejected for what you have to say? Have you grown up with a lot of criticism? Do you have a serious rejection issue? The answers to these questions could open a can of worms with which you can do some work. Fear is the bottom-line. Do a personality development course, public speaking course, conversing skills course, join a Toastmasters Club, practice elocution skills, and above all talk to a counselor to help with the underlying fear. These will see you through, if you are sincere and committed.

Dear, tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. 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 alcoholism. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, l can understand your situation from your perspective. It is really challenging when you were. Finding it difficult to control the thoughts. It makes you feel restless and uneasy. It is ironical, the more you were controlling your thoughts, the more it was overpowering you. As your irrational/unrealistic thoughts creating the feeling of restless and uneasiness. It is crucial to identify the unrealistic thoughts and tackle them based on reality. Please do write more on your thoughts! stay calm and at peace with yourself.

Dear lybrate user. Forgetfulness has a lot many reasons and thus you need a detailed work up about your problem from a psychiatrist. It needs to be identified that is it just lack of attention or a more deep seated problem like underlying depression. Get in touch.

I am 22 years old. I feel depressed for 7 days. Are there any way to reduce depression.
Hello Sweta, Are you facing any kind of situation or circumstance due to which you are feeling depressed. The way to reduce depression will be to take few sessions on managing your thoughts. Depression is a result of thoughts that are formed in our mind, and so you can opt for brief therapy that will help you to replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts. You can also practice deep breathing exercise, if you do this accompanied with an expert, then the chances are 100% relief. Regards Stuti

Sudden stoppage will cause some withdrawal symptoms, and it certainly is not something you should do on your own. Please consult your doctor and let him/her decide whether you must discontinue or not. Ideally, medicines must be gradually weaned off, and your reactions noted for further action. Only the doctor who has prescribed the dosage will know when and how much to withdraw.

How to stop smoking and how to make other to stop smoking. What are it's advantage and disadvantage?

DHMS (Diploma in Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery)
Homeopath, Ludhiana
I feel really happy for you guys who have guts to digest the truth that habitual smoking is an addiction and I am very much sure that guys like you although understand the disatrous effectss of habitual smoking but out of their craving or compulsion are unable to do so.But I wll try to figure out a clear picture in front of you and let you decide how to quit this habit as I think you are strong enough to quit this habit as you have a strong mind to accept this addiction. 1.Yash,it was 16 when you sstarted smoking.Just think it yourself that was this the age to start smoking.This Is the age to relish your time,your age,free from all tensions just enjoying your Parents luxuries but you opted the other way,putting yourself into the darkness of fumes,Smoking .You just think how much money of your parents you have wasted till now. 2.Just ssee the poor people around you who cant make up for one time meals.Just think that if you were not ssmoking ,how many of them would you have fed during last 2 years and try to feel that happiness that you must have got and now you are deprived off. 3. Tell your friends, family, and other people you’re close to that you’re trying to quit. They can encourage you to keep going, especially when you’re tempted to light up. I uggest you to join a SUPPORT GROUP of people who have quit smoking by hearing their experiences with you. 4..You can quit. All you need is the proper motivation. Maybe a visit to a pulmonary clinic might help. Take a long look around at the people in the lobby. Many of them are like you (and me), they smoked for years and always had the excuse that it was just too hard to quit. Just think, if you keep lighting up, you can end up just like them. If you really want an eye-opener, go to a hospital and volunteer your services for a month or so. Every time you light up a cigarette, you get one step closer to that for an end. Be strong. You can beat this habit just like millions of people do every year. You just need a stronger reason to quit - at least a stronger reason that the one you use to defend your smoking. Good luck. I know what it feels like to be on both sides of this thing. 5.. It's important for you to reprioritize your spare time that would have been spent smoking. Try a new hobby, get out and & walk/exercise, read ... anything. Remember that cravings only last a couple of minutes. 6.Homoeopathic medicine DAPHNE INDICA 1X( Wilmar Schwabe India) Chew 2 tab 3 times daily AVENA SATIVA Q ( Dr RECKEWEG) Drink 20 drops in 20 ml fresh water twice daily To start with start early morning Brisk walking for 30 minutes and breathing deep while walking. ALOM VILOM PRANAYAM daily for 15 minute any time during the day. Report after 30 days There is always written on every cigratte case that CIGRATTE IS INJURIOUS TO HEALTH.It itself proves that we smoke only due to a habit or compulsion although understanding its after effects but reluctant to leave this monster habit.I dont think there is a single advantage of smoking cigratte apart from its primary action in a Habitual smoker that it creates mental alertness immediately after smoking.But disadvantages of smoking are countless like Ageing,Lung and mouth cancer,Breathing prolems,Resp.allergy like Asthma,Heart insufficiencies and many more.

Hello Doctor, I would like to know how i can remove my mental blocks from mind as i fear sometimes to take decision that is this correct for me or not and i loose opportunities because of this. Kindly help me how i can build up my self-confidence that i lost a bit. I have motivation to achieve my life goals but some negative thoughts hinder me to take decisions on time.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology

There are two aspects I wish to educate you. 1. Mental blocks and indecisive conflicts are natural with every person. People are able to take decisions if they are experienced in an aspect. If not experienced, they cannot take any decisions, but they request help from other experienced persons. To take proper thought over decisions, you need to be experienced, otherwise you can take help from others. That is the correct attitude. There are other incidents where you are supposed to take split second decisions and I am sure that you are able to take those decisions. 2. Self confidence depends on your attitude and experience. If you are experienced in an aspect, you are already self confident. For example swimming or cycling. If you are experienced, you will have confidence in doing any tasks in that aspect. Self confidence at Every skill is determined by your experience in that particular skill. You cannot drive a car with the confidence in cycling. The confidence you are asking about here is , I think, about risk taking. That is strictly a No. Be confident only when you have experience.
