Difficult to give clear answer here without knowing you. This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. They have love-hate relationship with close ones. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

Lybrate-user, first of all I want to congratulate you that you are not on drugs anymore. For your information not many people are able to do that. --) I would suggest you that, not to think toooo much about your condition. Don't take yourself tooo seriously. Instead feel the goodness within your self and around you. Be happy and proud of your self. --) indulge in activities that make you happy, apart from your daily routine. Do things you always wanted to do. --) most importantly. Enjoy your new life. --) slowly you will be able to bounce back. Automatically other problems will vanish and things will fall in place. --) all the best.

It sounds to me like you are depressed and very often anxiety goes with the depression. 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 extremely precious and everything that can sustain and promote life must be sought after. You must discuss this with your counselor. I also suggest that you pursue​ spiritual wellness because a genuinely spiritually sound person will never contemplate suicide or attempt it ever.

Addiction of cigratte. How I can do something for my uncle. How he can get rid of addiction of cigratte?

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
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your uncle's will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If your uncle is ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support he need, he can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless he feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that he has a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for his actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. He should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who will 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 smoking. Therefore, your uncle need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with his psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Hi I am a 25 year female and am suffering from severe depression. There is something very serious going on in my life. I do not know if it is a medical issue or something else but could not find any other way to talk about it. I am a reserved category hindu and am well educated. I am an Mba from well reputed college but my family is very orthodox in terms of marriage since my roots are from village. I have been brought up by my real father's brother who is my 'taauji' but since I ve always been with him so I ve always considered him my father. So the matter is I ve been dating this boy from past 7 years and I love him very very very much. He is an amazing guy, well settled and very loving. But the problem is his religion. He is a muslim. And my parents would never ever allow me to marry him. They are worried about my future but how do I marry someone else when I can not even think about anybody else. My father (taauji) says he will in no case let me marry a muslim. What should I do now? I do not wanna marry anybody else but I do not even want to go against my father who has done so much for me from my childhood. I am really depressed. I just do not understand this situation and the worst part is nobody in my family speaks against him as he is the eldermost person. Can anybody here help me out? I am really confused and disturbed. I still have time but I keep thinking about this only. I am very distracted all the time. Theres nobody who can help. I feel very broken.

Love sees no caste or religion. But after marriage there will be lots of changes in life which is always not so rosy like live life. That is why elders see compatibility for married life. You can go ahead and marry the Muslim man, but get in writing he and his family wont force you into his religious customs and neither should you force him for Hindu customs. If this is agreed up I guess married life might be hassle free. make sure the man really loves you by asking if he would agree for these.

Hi Doctor I am suffering from OCD more specifically Ocd related to God and religion. I experience obsessive thoughts regarding god and have compulsive actions as well. I have other types of ocd's as well where obsessive thoughts are regarding death and afterlife. I had the same issue about 10 years ago and had somehow controlled it but in the past two months the same has come back to me and if I remember correctly it started when I decided to quit smoking. This is making life very unpleasant and I have not been able to quit smoking as well as it has become part of the compulsions. Is there treatment for the same, I am from Bangalore.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
There is treatment for OCD, which includes medication and behavioral therapy. The best results are seen in patients who use a combination of both. Given that you had a similar episode before, and are again suffering from this problem, it needs to be addressed urgently. Smoking cessation also needs to be addressed, albeit secondarily. You may consult me for further management if required.

What are the side effects of this medicine
...
Good Morning, Body pain is common all age groups and your father of 52 years age is prone to body pain if he had co-morbid medical conditions like diabetes and hypertension. I would like for you to bring you father in for a consultation with a general physician so that he can be assessed and you can suggest further care for the patient. I also believe that you will be able to get his body pain under control if he is somatizing symptoms of depression and anxiety. In that case it would be appropriate for a psychiatrist to treat your father. I hope you find help for your father as soon as possible. Voveran long term use is not recommended, however since there is a possibility of kidney damage. I recommend that you visit with a specialist as soon as possible.

Jaldi karo. All men/women are different in their sexuality and health. You need to go for check up with sexologist to know the cause and get guidance/treatment for improvement. If you value your sexual health and want to enjoy quality sex in marriage then understanding and learning about sexuality is needed. As we all believe that what we know by hearsay or porn watching is great but in fact what we all know and understand is only penetration and that's not quality sex.

Dear sir. I am a teacher. I want to know this. What are the symptoms of Dyslexia and dysgraphia?

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
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear in the earlier childhood stages, diagnosis of dyslexia may be a little difficult. In older children or adults with dyslexia, these other signs may appear: trouble with reading, writing, and spelling. Ongoing trouble with schoolwork. Difficulty learning a foreign language. Poor handwriting. Difficulty remembering numbers. Trouble following a sequence of directions and telling left from right. The symptoms to dysgraphia are often overlooked or attributed to the student being lazy, unmotivated, not caring, or having delayed visual-motor processing. To diagnose dysgraphia, one must have more than one of the following symptoms: cramping of fingers while writing short entries odd wrist, arm, body, or paper orientations such as creating an l-shape with your arm excessive erasures mixed upper case and lower case letters inconsistent form and size of letters, or unfinished letters misuse of lines and margins inefficient speed of copying inattentiveness over details when writing frequent need of verbal cues referring heavily on vision to write poor legibility handwriting abilities that may interfere with spelling and written composition having a hard time translating ideas to writing, sometimes using the wrong words altogether may feel pain while writing.
