In alcoholism we have a term for one who has all the symptoms of alcoholism but does not consume alcohol. He is referred to as a 'dry alcoholic'. You seem to fit a description of an abstaining druggie. Don't take the labels seriously but it does convey is that there are a lot of issues from your past and habit that need to be worked upon. You must go to a addiction counselor and get proper therapy to clear all the effects of your past, issues with emotions and a lot of pain deep within. Once you have done so, there will be a marked change in life and outlook.

Hi, I am 34 years old. I have been unemployed for the last 4 years. During this time I prepared for government jobs, but couldn't get a job. Now I am planning to go back to private jobs. I have been working hard on my skills to get a private sector job, and I'm happy to have acquired a lot of skills. I managed to get a fake work experience letter for those four years, when I was not working from a friend is company. My problem is, I keep on thinking what if I get caught using a fake letter (though the probability of getting caught is extremely low, as the company went out of business few months back) .This fear is always on my mind and consumes a lot of mental energy from me. This fear is always holding me back from going to interviews and applying for jobs. Please help me to start a new positive life and how do I overcome this thinking habit.

This is actually a good sign: it only shows that your conscience does not accept your unethical action. You cannot leave your conscience behind and just forget it. therefore I suggest to have a clean mind and remove that letter and the mention of that sabbatical in your resume. You would rather face life telling the truth than be successful by lying. The job scene is competitive but that does not mean it is acceptable to use deception even if others do to somehow get a placement. With a clear conscience life will be better and your mind will be free of any guilt. If you believe in karma and if you believe in Christ's famous words, 'You reap what you sow' , you may pay a price in some form or the other in life, that is for sure. Sometimes far worse than the crime.

I was in a relationship with a girl and we broke up last year. After that I constantly stalk my ex. She has moved on and made a new boyfriend and they both are happy. I am in a habit to stalk my ex and his boyfriend too. Like what they are doing and where they are hanging out? And it has become a kind of addiction now. I do not feel happy and it feels like my life has no meaning now. Suggest me what should I do to get out of this?

Well, just get out of stalking. You are only feeding your jealousy more and more. This obsession is wrong and shows that you have a tendency to cling on to someone and cannot part that easily. This has to be resolved in therapy and could be an indicator of an unhealthy symbiosis. You need to get her out of your mind and learn to live yours minus her. Your are displaying a craving for her as though you need her for your survival. This will not suit having other relationships too because your clinging can become quite unbearable, and you may also tend to want to control the other person. Go and resolve these mattes and then look at getting into another relationship.

How to overcome depression and anxiety and fear of failure as I am taking medicine and psychological counseling.

How to overcome depression and anxiety and fear of failure as I am taking medicine and psychological counseling.
Depression and anxiety often go together. The fear of failure could be a part of that anxiety too. I am glad that you are combining counseling with medication. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dreams are the unconscious mind's way of processing various experiences that may be important to the individual. In this case there is an underlying fear that manifests in this form of dreams. Unexpressed fear can release itself in these dreams. Interpretation is very subjective but it is possible to wager a guess. In this dream it could indicate that this person is going to be restrained from travelling anywhere or even from venturing into any entrepreneurial deals. The failure of these ventures is also indicated. Sometimes, the fear may cause flatulence and this can also trigger gory dreams. I recommend that this person seeks some counseling and deal with these fears.

My query is in relation to hormonal changes in a women. I am divorced as my ex wife had unusual behaviour and says its because of hormonal changes (her age 40 same as mine). Massive outburst of anger range, thinking the person is best at times and then same person is bad if he acts or decides something which she does not like, abondament issue as if you are going to leave her (insecurity), impulsively leave a relationship without thinking of the consequences, compulsively lying and manipulation was also a part of our relationship as she wanted things her way and suite her needs, controlling nature and wanting others to behave that way. We did have differences and breakup in our relationship and use to not speak with each other, if I approach after 15-20 days she is all on me as to why I did not contact her for so many days but in reality she is the one to breakup and show no interest in a relationship at that point of time in her anger rage. She also degrades others family members thinking they are plotting against her and doubt all actions done by them are to harm her but in reality it is not the case. When taking any impulsive decision like leaving a relationship (done many times) for small things which can be sorted out she expects me to say sorry for it and call her back and not believe in all she said in anger and when told she could have called me and said sorry she says why I should call you because she is not at fault. Even she is not sure of her decision making and cannot control her emotions and doubts how she will make decisions at workplace. There is so much more to be said but I hope this provides a brief summary of my inconsistent  experience. I still do love her and want to be together but do not know is hormones causing all this or something else and how to deal with it. She is a student counsellor and has been divorced at age 23 and given her boy child to her father. She is currently living in Mumbai Nagpada.

To confirm the effects of hormones you will need to consult an endocrinologist. As matters stand I suspect that it has to do with paranoia, which is a fear based condition, but she could escalate anger over that. She may suffer from a severe case of rejection, which includes abandonment too. Control will be an important requirement for her to feel in charge. The fear is the key and if that can be identified and accepted by her, a lot of work can be done. You must take her to a counselor and if that person advises a doctor too, then you must consider that too.

I am suffering from schizophrenia and I can't remember any thing is there any cure for that.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
As far as I know there is no cure for schizophrenia but with a combination of medicine and therapy it is possible to make you functional and live close to a normal life. Sometimes you may enjoy automatic remission but that is time-bound and the cause is unknown. Schizophrenia is a very complex and difficult disease to treat, even with medication. All psychotropic medicines have side-effects: that is inescapable. But I suspect that you are depending entirely on medication when in reality you need to combine it with counseling or therapy. In therapy you will learn a lot of coping mechanisms and techniques to remain functional and lead a close-to-normal life. You will also learn about emotions and how they can impact your condition adversely. Expressing emotions in an appropriate manner will equip you for life. Talking and sharing about the many disturbing thoughts and learning to understand yourself and moderate your responses will go a long way towards normalizing and training your mind. Exercise must be a regular part of your life for various reasons. Put yourself on a productive and strict schedule. The idle mind is the devil's workshop for sure, and more so for a schizophrenic. Don't ever get discouraged but work at it continuously and you could enjoy a good life. Learn to live stress-free.

My mother gets auditory hallucinations in the night. She complains of listening to voices & suspects that my neighbors are talking to my father on phone (which is not true as only she hears those voices & no one else do no). She is kind of insecure & when I have consulted doctors, they said she is suffering with Paranoia & need to be medically treated. But she never accepts that they are not real but auditory hallucinations. When I took her to the doctor, he explained her situation with an example but even then she is not ready to accept her medical condition & she is not taking medicines. We tried convincing in many ways, but no use. This issue is becoming serious & we have no idea, how deal with this. Kindly suggest something.

You can ask the doctor to prescribe a medicine which can be surreptitiously slipped into her diet or drink and this can make her amenable to therapy or medication over a period of time. Since she is willing to meet the doctor you can definitely take her to a counselor who will use talk therapy to deal with the issues without her knowing that there is a label to her condition. This access to therapy is a very important tool to explore but you should warn the counselor that she is already denying that there is a problem. A smart therapist will work with her belief and through alignment with a fallacy, it is possible to get her around gradually to accept that her perceptions are just hallucinations. This can be done.

My father consumes alcohol in large amounts and most of the times. It has happened a lot of times that he lost his consciousness and suddenly fell down. And couldn't remember anything for a few minutes. He also has a kidney stone. But he's not having any treatment for that. Please tell me is it serious. Or effects of alcoholism?

Yes, drinking at this level is very serious. His Rock Bottom (which he has not yet reached) is looking like death! If he does not act responsibly, then one other member or many of you in the family can take the decision to admit him to a rehabilitation center. Ideally, your father should want to give up alcohol himself to begin with. If not, it is going to be an uphill task and to the most part impossible. However, you should not be in want of trying. If he is unwilling to seek help, he needs to be admitted to a rehabilitation center for at least 6 months. If not, there are centers who will come and pick him up when he is drunk, when his resistance will be ineffective. This will require mom's permission and written consent. After your dad returns from therapy, there will be a lot of follow-ups, both in the house and in his daily activities that must be meticulously adhered to. There is a medicine called Disulfiram, which only the doctor can prescribe, and it is very powerful that even if he attempts to drink a small quantity, he can have serious reactions that may sometimes entail hospitalization. You have to monitor his intake of the medicine and keep a close watch on him. He also has to go for regular counseling for at least three years! Apart from his health, he will also affect the family and all his children will carry genetic factors for alcoholism. If he is into business or working, he will soon not be able to continue and he will go into financial ruin. He will lose all his friends and become ostracized by his society. He will lose his dignity, self-esteem, self-confidence, and become a misfit. He will also lose his sexual capacity, liver function, heart function, kidney etc. Now it is difficult to give up because he has become addicted to alcohol for some time and has a lot to do. The consumption of Antabuse has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children, including you and whoever else is there, will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that you are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that you will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Now you should not give up on him but neither should you harass him. Be continuously after him and in the end, you will succeed. His medical condition warrants a very strict course of action.

Depression and anxiety oftentimes go together. Sometimes if you don't deal with the anxiety well, it can develop into hysteria and manifest in many physical forms. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately apart with a doctor you must cooperate to your utmost with both therapies. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition.
