Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

I am cocaine drug addicted boy how can I left this addiction. because I am very depress.

I am cocaine drug addicted boy how can I left this addiction. because I am very depress.
When you enter hard drugs, you are into the troublesome area of addiction. I think that the impulse control under the influence of these substances can be very limited. The danger of you doing more harmful things can be heightened. Before you get into that kind of behavior, you please quit at the earliest. To enable that I suggest that you go for immediate rehabilitation to a recovery center and stay there for at least 6 months until you are all clear and clean. Even after that you must continue addiction counseling for at least three years to completely remove the physical and psychological conditioning and craving. You will be told and taught new lifestyles, schedules, habits etc. to totally recover. You must work on the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factor and the script issue. Many people will not be able to resolve drug addiction in particular if they do not reach their ‘Hitting Rock Bottom’, i.e. the worst stage in their addiction to finally want to reform. Unfortunately for some unlucky few that can be death. So do be careful and do not delay seeking help now. If there are relapses, do not get too alarmed and give up. You must again persevere and fight this battle until you come out victorious. Your family members and medical fraternity must be there for you right through this recovery. You will also need to attend Narcotics Anonymous meetings for a long time too after the treatment is over.

Hi sir. My age Is 26 now. I have a problem of stammering. Because of the issue of stammering I can't able to speak good. It's dominated my career growth. Am had horrible experience in Day to day life. Today's situation fluent speak is more essential to live. U suffering from all the disability to speak properly. Can any one save me from this issue. Please help me. Suggest me any time of treatment or surgery regarding speaking problem.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next.

Dear , depression is usually treated with a combination of medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. The medicines you are having now are good and you should try to get the other treatment methods. Once you start with those methods, it will be easy for you to manage your depression and slowly you could reduce the medicine doses and stop them altogether. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Possibly impulse disorder coming under the spectrum of ocd. Please post a private question to me with all the details. I think he could do well with mobile based counseling. I am happy to help you.

Dear lybrate-user, Probably you are suffering from obsessive ruminations. Depression is common with such obsessions. Probably you are on Clofranil (not Chlorofranil) which is the treatment for your condition. Please consult your doctor again so as to increase the dose of Clofranil or add another drug or Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). The treatment may last for several months and repeated visits to psychiatrist.

I am 23 year old famle. I have social anxiety disorder. What should I do. I have problem in interaction with people. ...
About the issue itself: Do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? Have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? You can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Any way you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (I suggest you join the Toastmasters Club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too!!!! There are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: Awareness, intimacy and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of social anxiety to disappear from your life for good.You can go for personal grooming classes too. While regular vigorous exercise develops your body, the regimen will also enlarge your heart and help you handle stressful situations much more competently than others who don’t exercise. Dress well, eat well, sleep well and conduct yourself well in social circles to build confidence. Perform well in your studies and work, and feel good about your achievements. You could also go for hypnosis sessions to build your self-image from within. Now, remember that all your problems are in your mind: spiritual wellness, faith and prayer will boost your confidence really well. Emotional wellness will take care of the fear factor. There are lots of affirmations, if said three times at a time, everyday, they will gradually strengthen your concept of yourself. Yoga and meditation will also build you up. Speaking to a counselor will give you personal assistance in pursuing these goals. The ultimate test of a personality is in the social context. The greater test is when we meet with the opposite sex. And the final test is when we have to bed and board with a member of the opposite sex in marriage. If you wait for that time to resolve it, it might be too late and traumatizing. Even if you are afraid of people, face your fear and see what happens. They are certainly not going to kill you. So what is the worst that can happen? Really nothing, but it will feel great to have friends and lots of companions in life. We are after all social animals, gregarious by nature and need each other. So don’t handicap yourself on this front. Attend a personality development class, personal grooming class, public speaking class, and conversation classes. It will help to do a lot of this with a close friend, if you have one. If not, find one. We are into relationships all the time. It is near impossible to live without people. All research has shown that living with someone gives us good health and long life too.

You must take her to a sexologist and have a frank talk about these issues. She may be having some problems regarding sex and they may come family influences or childhood events. Even a gynaecologist could help her if she is comfortable with one. If this has been happening only recently, then check out if she has any problems with an early menopause. On your part, I would advise that you are gentle and patient with her until you understand the exact nature and cause of this sudden behavior. Many times women go through unexplained phases like this and come out of it easily too. So, first, help her by gentle coaxing and show her that you care for her more than sex alone. Many times we men become callous when we want our sexual desires fulfilled and neglect the warmth and love that goes with it because of habit and selfishness.

Respected Doctor, I am an 18 year old male, and I suspect that I may be suffering from a bipolar disorder or depression. Since the last two months I have been unable to concentrate on anything that I used to like. I have grown very impatient and irritable. Though I have had a bad temper since childhood , I am experiencing anger that I had never experienced before, throwing stuff, punching the wall and having feelings of hopelessness, crying suddenly, self guilt and feelings of isolating myself from my friends and family. I never talk to someone about my condition as I do not feel I can rely on someone and I think people might mistake my condition to be an imaginary ailment. I can give you more information if you want. Please help me , I feel really alone and hopeless right now.

You cannot diagnose bipolar on your own. Please visit a doctor and a counselor. It can be a crippling disease if not treated and if treated early the prognosis is good. So quickly visit a psychiatrist and seek his/her opinion and you must then follow the medication prescribed. Comply with all the medical prescriptions and work in tandem with a counselor for a long time and learn coping skills and techniques to handle the daily challenges you will face. There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. Bipolar is characterized by two extreme poles i. E. Feeling very high (mania) and suddenly feeling very low (depression). You can ask the doctor for the symptoms he noticed in you for a personal understanding.

I want my charming look back. I am getting away from Enjoyment bcoz of depression. I lost my charmless.
Being charm and happy is very essential for any person. Stress and many other factors can take it away from us in this modern world. If you have any of the symptoms like sleep disturbances, crying spells, staying alone, easy irritability, avoiding family and friends then kindly consult a psychiatrist. If you don't have these symptoms and just feel charm less then take breaks. Have a long weekend trip with family and friends. Do regular exercises. Take proper diet and sleep well. You will settle down with time.
