Hi I am kamal 24 years old. Its been 3 years I am on medication. My doctor said you are suffering from social anixiety. The medician help me to keep calm and relax. But communication is my big problem. I am working with international bpo where I need excellent communication to handle the u. S. Clients. But I cannot think clearley I always face problem while speaking. My thought process suddenly stucks and I feel I dont have anything to speak. But there are days when I speak with great confidence and handle the clients in good manner. It suddenly changes to other side where I face the same problem which I described above. I really need to resolve it. This is the big issue in my life please advice. My medications are buprone 300xl. Buspin10 mg. Vitamin capsule and fludec 20 mg capsule. Please advise.

The big mistake you are making is that you are not also in therapy. All the issues you describe are exactly suitable to be sought from counseling support. You should have a review of the medication too anyway after you mention these symptoms. The combination of therapy and medication is ideal for a proper recovery. Please attend a personality development course that highlights the five-factorial approach: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual quotients. If you develop in these five areas, you will certainly improve your confidence. Some personality courses emphasize and focus on public speaking to a large extend. It is not too bad an idea but it is a little narrow in perspective. You could instead attend a toast masters club, which does the same thing in a more organized manner. Apart from regular and aerobic exercise, you must also visit a gym to build a good body image. 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 work, and feel good about your achievements. You could also go for hypnosis sessions to build your self-image from within. In addition, indulge spiritual wellness, faith and prayer that will boost your confidence really well. Emotional wellness will take care of the fear factor, which is your big problem. There are lots of affirmations, if said three times at a time, everyday, they will gradually strengthen your concept of yourself and your confidence. Yoga and meditation will also build you up. Speaking to a counselor will give you personal assistance in pursuing these changes. If the change in mood fluctuates from extremes of low to euphoria, you must report this to the doctor, immediately. You are young and a lot can be done only if you cooperate and combine medication with therapy.

I was just reading an article regarding symptoms of mental disorder. I know a friend who always avoids gatherings and has a continuous thinking problem. Also, during discussions in our group he either stays shut up or becomes hyper. Can you suggest me the solution or guide me further so that I can try to help him?

I'm a 35 yr old male fighting depression for over 10 yrs. What can I do to make myself feel better?
Dear , depression and related symptoms are body's defense mechanism against stress and fear and therefore you cannot fully eliminate it. When the symptoms become more frequent and prominent, it is called depressive disorder. It is a disorder and not a disease. Understanding depression helps you manage it properly. Education, awareness, cbt, ret etc are the therapeutical areas with which depressive disorder is managed effectively. Please post a detailed private question to me and I am sure I will be able to help and cure your problem. Take care.

You may be into an anger-related depression and it is not unusual to feel fear too during this state. You need help immediately and you should inform your wife-to-be about all this. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. 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. 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. Life is very precious and when you marry you will be important to your wife too. Whatever it is work on the issue and live life well and to the fullest. Be positive always.

What are the major causes of depression? How to free my friend from this, pls help.
There are a number of reasons why a person may go into depression. Here are a few major causes: 1. If there is something wrong with the body like if there is hormonal imbalance or some glands have abnormal secretions, it may affect the mind/mood of a person. Any kind of physical sickness may induce depression. 2. If the person is sad for a long time and is unable to cope up with the life situations. 3. If the person has faced some trauma in life, like loss of dear ones, loss of intimate relationship, being abused physically and/or mentally. 4. If the expectations do not match the reality of life. 5. If a person feels lonely and feels that he/she is not worthy of anyone's love. 6. If the person has low self esteem. 7. If the people around do not appreciate the person's skills, achievements or strengths. The person thinks he/she is useless. Kindly assure your friend of your support and love. Focus on his/her strengths and encourage your friend to meet new people, take up new challenges, pursue his/her own hobby. Give plenty of genuine positive strokes. Empower your friend to move on. Encourage your friend to have open communication with people.

High cholesterol regular smoking and drinking put you in a very high risk for a lot of diseases specially heart disease so I would strongly advise you to quit smoking if not both and you can take alcohol the moderate amount occasionally your muscle problems can be a result of nutritional deficiency or a sign of developing under lyme disease so you need to get evaluated for them as well as for other risk factors so I would advise you to undergo a routine health checkup with all routine blood test urine test and Cardiac evaluation like Eco cardiography and ECG then we can pinpoint what is causing you problems and what respect is you have also if your cholesterol is high then you should take medications for the same something which you should start doing is avoid all kind of junk and fatty foods and do a regular 45 minutes of workout any kind of workout at least 5 days a week regularly keep a record of your blood pressure and blood sugar and regular health checkups every six months to 1 year.

Dear lybrate user. Don't use any chemical based creams. It will not be useful. Try virgin coconut oil instead of normal coconut oil. Moreover, it will take time. Don't get depressed. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user. In many of the cases Stammering has two important reasons. Vocal chord misalignment or other problems are the primary reason. For this vocal chord complaint, you should consult an ENT specialist and get it corrected. Second reason is purely psychological. Stammer therapy can help you in psychological reasons. Take care.

You need to give your body rest in between sex and extra hardwork. Try relaxation and breathing exercises. Try coq10. Take balanced diet and life work. For further discussion consult privately.

Hi doc, Can you please suggest me how to get rid of seviourly drinking and smoking habits.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

Environment is always right. But our mind set is not right. Junk food may not caused your problems. It will not reason for your problem. No social net works it is good. But I think you have no friends also. May be always sit in home alone. That is not good. Make friendship with who are good at studies. They suggest to you a very good time table and diet also. They suggest good methods of studies and tell how to come out of the study problems also. You not solve all the problems take the help of good friends. Ask the elders and teachers about your problems. They will tell what you need. Take the advise of elders and good friends. Make a good time table and solve it in a systematic manner. Ok best of luck.

I suffer from stammering problem since I was in 4 th standard. Sometimes it decreases to negligible and sometimes becomes very severe. I stammer on certain words only, like the words which have a combination of A with D and D with I and etc etc. Please suggest a way to get rid of my stammering or suggest a doctor with whom I can consult. Thanking you.

Lybrate-user. I think your stammering has more to do with your confidence and self esteem, rather than words and alphabets. May be you stammer more when you think you can't handle a situation or a problem. Also it might be an issue of inferiority complex. In any case you have to work on how you think. Be your self. Do not think more of the consequences. If you think you are correct then go ahead. Do not think low of your self. Everybody is not the same. You are unique. Respect your own self. All the best.
