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.

You sound like you could be in an unhealthy symbiosis with your parents and therefore the high level of fear in their absence. This may have contributed to the breakup with your last girlfriend. Your fear is now too much that your imagination is running wild and suggesting all kinds of possibilities to actually seem like you are suffering from a heart problem. You need to break the bonds with your parents and learn to be independent. You must meet with a counselor and work out your dependency needs. In the meantime, you could also attend a good personality development course, socializing course, attend a gym regularly and learn a lot of skills in relating to other people. You need to develop​ self-confidence and self-esteem too.

There are some brain enhancing techniques which is called cognitive training. But some vitamins are supposed to increase blood circulation to brain which is a faster method. For eg. Vitamin b3. Don't go for any chemical drugs or medicines.

I have been becoming anger even for small reasons. How to overcome this. Can you plzz help me.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
It is important to understand what meaning you make from others' words, actions and behaviours. Many times you may perceive others' actions/words from completely different view and they may mean something else. It will be a good idea to ask others what they mean, before getting angry with any one. Try to have open communication with the people around.

i am suffering from mental depression please help me out. That why sometimes I want screaming and cry.

i am suffering from mental depression please help me out. That why sometimes I want screaming and cry.
Hi, Feeling down or blue is a natural part of life. People let us down, things go wrong, we lose people we love or the dreams we've valued. When feeling down stretches over weeks or months, is occurring frequently and interfering with your ability to interact with people and enjoy your life, it is likely that you're experiencing some form of depression. Provided that you're able to access information and have a good doctor and support network around you, even severe depression is a highly treatable condition. Along with medication psychotherapy from psychologist is a important adjunct. Firstly, you will have to make few lifestyle changes: Sleep well. Sleep is essential to a healthy, balanced body. Lack of sleep can aggravate negative thinking and easily becomes a vicious cycle whereby your negative thoughts keep you awake and disable your ability to get enough sleep. Waking unrefreshed and feeling tired is a common complaint during depression, and even too much sleep can leave depressed persons feeling tired. Breaking this cycle requires enforcing a strict sleep routine of the same bedtime and waking time every day, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, not exercising three hours prior to bed, removing anything distracting from your bedroom, and keeping your room at a suitable temperature. Exercise releases a natural anti-depressant chemical in your brain and gets you into doing something active. Start small with a simple walk to the local store or around the block, or to your garden gate might be the way to begin. Gradually work up to a routine that fits with your needs and enjoyment. Look for friends or group exercise sessions since having a partner will keep you more motivated. You can also look for activities that will allow you to release some of the pent-up emotions that may be built up, such as kickboxing. Playing sports is a great way to get regular exercise, stay occupied, focus on self-improvement and meet new people. Some studies have found that people who participate in sports have somewhat fewer symptoms of depression. Choose a sport that is exhausting to quiet the chatter in your mind and leave you feeling wrung out—just don't overdo it. Join a team or class in your area and commit to showing up to as many of these meetings as possible, even if you may not feel like going some days. Eat healthy. Reduce your intake of sugar, high fructose corn syrup, fast foods, and processed foods. Eat more fruits, vegetables and whole foods. Drink plenty of water and do some research on foods that are said to improve your state of mind and well-being. Improving your diet can be a positive project to keep you constructively occupied and focused when you're working through your depression. Plus, many healthy foods are effective at improving mood Talk with friends, family and colleagues who make you feel good and who are good to be around. Spend time with people who see the world in a positive way and ask them to share their visions, ideas, and approaches to life with you. Most positive people will be more than happy to reveal the things that help them keep upbeat and happy about their lives. Learn from them. Remember that misery loves company. It can be incredibly hard to keep away from negative people as down and out as you're feeling, but do your best to avoid them. You won't be doing either of you a favor by confirming each other's fears that the rest of the world is terrible. Keep occupied. Being busy is a way to prevent negative thoughts from going around your head repeatedly. For depressed persons, the first step is often the hardest, so making yourself do things can be a huge difference in your day and getting you started Start a journal of your journey through your depression. Document your feelings somewhere personal and completely private. This will be the place where you let out your darkest thoughts — no holds barred — because you don't need to worry that anyone will judge you for them. A diary can become your collaborator in the struggle against your depression because it eventually provides you with great evidence of what improves your mood as well as what brings it down. Try to write in it daily if possible. Change your thinking. As part of progressing, recognizing and defeating negative thinking patterns is a very important aspect to concentrate on. Cognitive behavioral therapy, psychotherapy, or other forms of psychological therapy are helpful when you're unlearning negative thinking and establishing patterns of thinking that support your self-esteem and increase your self confidence. While it is best to read up in this area and speak with someone qualified to help guide you through the ways to change your thinking, there are some important things to keep in mind. Acknowledge the feeling will pass. This can be a very difficult step, but it's vital because it helps you to start banishing thoughts of hopelessness. List all of your good points. When you're depressed, it's easy to understate the positive things about yourself. Turn this around by listing everything that is good about you. Include achievements from the past and hopes for the future, however few or random they may seem. If you can't write this list, have a trusted friend or family member start one for you. This is a list to keep building upon as you work through your depression. Self-acceptance is a vital part of recovering from depression because you acknowledge that there are good things about yourself, but also that you have challenges to overcome. This will help you stop judging yourself more harshly than anyone else. Make decisions, however small, and act on them. Again, while this is very difficult to do during depression, it is a vital element in facing the sense of helplessness that tends to overwhelm depressed persons. Small decisions like getting out of bed, calling friends, or cleaning up the kitchen all add up. Once you act on them, they become achievements. Learn how to replace faulty or negative thinking by focusing on it. Ask questions such as: Am I assuming the worst? Am I condemning myself because something bad has happened? Am I focused on my weaknesses rather than my strengths? It is helpful to arrange the negative thought in one column and a rationalization in another column, so that you can confront and undo the negative thinking. In one column you may write the thought" I'm a failure, and in the other you challenge that thought with" I made a mistake. I've made mistakes in the past and things have turned out okay. I've also had many triumphs. Learn assertiveness techniques once you've challenged the harder aspects of your negative thinking processes. Assertive techniques will allow you to find a pathway to standing up for yourself without giving in to feelings of anger, fear, or powerlessness. Knowing how to assert yourself is an important part of not falling back into depressive patterns in the future. Remember, Always keep yourself busy, or doing something positive. Sitting alone, or thinking about all the bad events in your life without expressing them to someone is going to make your depression worsen. Also pratice yoga or meditation. All the best.

First of all, the intensity of stress is in the perception - in your case, it sounds like the exam is the stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Apart from that, all your emotions need to be dealt with by expression i.e. you need to talk about the feelings. Then you need to exercise regularly, eat fiber foods (whole grains, fruits, and vegetables), sleep at least 8 hours every day, learn Yoga and meditation, learn stress management, and do a personality development course. Because you are into studies, follow a tight schedule, with good breaks and study habits. If group study helps you, do it with the right people. If tutoring is required, arrange for the same. These should see you through successfully without the stress.

I am a software engg by profession, recently i came across a girl in my office newly joined as intern but in a different team. 2 months back somehow i could manage to find her name and fb profile & i sent a friend request to her & she accepted that & asked me whether i know her, i said i saw you in office we work in the same company this is our first interaction. One day early morning in the office i thought i should call her for a tea & intro myself for this i just pinged her on fb to initiate a conversation however she didn't responded & in the evening she un-friend me i found it very rude & immature, if she wanted to do this then she should have not accepted the request. Next day i thought i should apologize to her for sending a friend request & normalize the issue as i don't want that we both feel uncomfortable when we see each other in the office it will very awkward situation so i did apologize to her by saying "i am sorry i din't realize how uncomfortable it would have been for you seeing unknown guy poking you" she replied its ok and went. Then whenever i use to see her i use to say Hi she also responds with Hi this went like for few days, then 2-3 times i could manage to talk to her about herself & career, guided her how she should progress in the company she talked very gently , frankly as if she is ok but whenever i see her i only initiate & she crosses as if she doesn't know me i f i don't say Hi this makes me thing "is she really comfortable talking to me" ? i should better ask her because i don't wanted that someday all of sudden she things that i am stalking & harassing her. I thought of asking her in alone over a snacks/tea for this i sent an email once "Up for Tea" but she didn't respond one day i met her personally i thought i will ask her now but somehow i couldn't get that confidence so i left it but after two days i msgd her on fb and asked can we talk about that she said yes i asked her that "are you comfortable when we talk" firstly she said "lame joke, gud nyt" i again asked her & i wrote one line along with this "that btw black suites you" after that she responded "Ques is dumb n inappropriate.I talk to my colleague about my project n work culture.Wats dere to not be uncomfy.Dont send buttering flith.I conclude_ u r nt a gud person to talk. I said i am sorry if i hurted you it's a compliment if you don't like it i take my words back i wrote sorry so many times but she didn't responded i felt like a beggar & found her very egoistic, i said don't do this i would feel guilty & it would become difficult for me to face you but she didn't respond. I started feeling for her now i don't know how to behave with her ? shall i talk to her in office normally or i should stop talking & ignore her? but if i do this i will hurt myself only because i really feel like talking to her but i don't want things to go worsen in office as it could spoil my career if she complains, Please guide me what i should do now, what should be my next course of action ?

Dear, I don't understand why you are pondering on the otherwise closed issue again and again. You wanted to have friendship with her. Fine. You should have stopped the moment she disagreed. You are confused because you are unable to convince you about the issue. You are doing well. Do it and go forward. Don;t ignore her at the same time don;t try to talk to her too. Occasions will come when you will be compelled to talk to her. Treat her as if she is your neighbor. Take care.

Body Dysmorphic Disorder - How It Can Be Treated?

Psychologist, Nagpur
Body Dysmorphic Disorder - How It Can Be Treated?

Body dysmorphic disorder is a type of psychiatric disorder. It is when you cannot think about one or more defects or flaws in your appearance. These flaws are usually very minor and sometimes even unnoticeable. This is actually a much more serious disorder than many other people may think. This is because people with body dysmorphic disease may avoid many situations and also suffer from severe anxiety or shame. Here is everything you need to know about body dysmorphic disease.

Just like other psychiatric disorders, there is no known cause of body dysmorphic disease. However, there are a lot of factors, which increases your risk of developing it which include:

  1. Brain disorders: Many people with abnormal brain chemistry disorders suffer from body dysmorphic disease. 
  2. Genes: People whose blood relatives have this disease or have obsessive compulsive disorder are more likely to develop this disorder as well. 
  3. Environment: Cultural and social influences are a major cause of body dysmorphic disorder as well.

There are, however a lot of symptoms of body dysmorphic disorder, most of which are psychological in nature. They include: 

  1. Having a preoccupation with a flaw in the body, which is very minor or perhaps even unnoticeable.
  2. Beliefs that people are mocking you in relation to your flaw.
  3. Being a perfectionist

It is also worth noting that this obsession can affect any part of the body and can also include several parts of the body or different parts of the body at different times. Here are the possible treatments of body dysmorphic disorder.

There are a variety of treatments, which a patient can opt for and a variety of methods of curing the problem. Here are the most common.

  1. Cognitive behavioral therapy: This is when a therapist tries to stop you from thinking about the flaw that you have been focusing on way too much. 
  2. SSRI: SSRI stands for Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. They are given in cases, where body dysmorphic disorder is caused by problems related to the brain chemical serotonin. 
  3. Hospitalization: This is a severe measure, but may need to be taken if you are in danger of harming somebody or you cannot perform daily activities. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

I have been through depression and the doctor has prescribed medicines like respiridone 2 mg, 3mg , clonzepam 1mg , flutop 15 mg , mirtazapine 15mg , olanzapine 10 mg - 4 tablets combination for about 8 months - and on second appointment with nimhans i slowly stopped taking the pills and not taking any pill right now, but i still have some side effects like my stomach bloats up and still have sleep issues, for minor depression as forced to take a hell a lot of tablets, do you suggest any tablets to overcome the side effects of these tablets, i was told the toxins will remain in the gut for about 8 to 10 months. If so how do i detoxify my body, i guess i have put on good weight and not able to bring down my weight and i used to eat a lot and sleep a lot when i was on tablets, how do i retain my normal life back with no stomach bloating and proper sleep- improper sleep is causing acidity and finally leading to stomach problems and again that is not causing proper sleep so just want to know how to get rid of these side effects?

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
That's a lot of medications. and they come with numerous side effects too. In my experience, alternative medicine like homeopathy and ayurveda work beautifully and without any side effects. This will also take care of the bloating. Counselling will help you to look at the causes of depression and help you develop skills to be more confident and motivated. If you want then we can have a session as I am in Bangalore.

Tumor is accumulation of cells. Tumors may affect the functioning of your body, especially when the size is increasing. Please consult a doctor at the earliest. For any disease, early treatment is half battle won. If your tumours are dangerous, the doctor will treat them, if they are not really dangerous, the doctor will suggest still some medication but most importantly you will be relieved of the stress once the diagnosis is done.
