Yes it's bad, because sooner or later you will develop full dependency on these substances. It's better to stop them, else it will harm you.

Hi lybrate-user! You need to consult with Neurologist to check if there is any underlying problem. This doesn't seem to be Psychological, Only Neurologist can explain you the exact reason and it is your option to take English medicine or allopathic. Take care. Have check up and be relieved. With regards, Psy. MSV.

Health is not growing up it is psychological feeling. We take food every day. Physiological development grows with out our permission. If you want very go food body. You need to take additional nutrition food. Sympathy about our self is a dangerous thing. Do not feel nervous it may cause your anger. Continuous anger it may cause depression. So do not feel nervous feel always confident. Think always in a positive manner. Develop in your inner strengths that show in your regular work. Prepare well in your studies, develop very good friendly relations with others. Best of luck.

You could be developing a serious problem if you continue to neglect this condition. Passivity is criminal and it is the devil's workshop to be idle. So get up and do regular exercises, sleep well and eat healthily. In the meantime, it is very important to visit a counselor and get some therapy done. You may get depressed and find it more difficult later. So immediately go and seek some professional help. It is possible that if you are on time that you could manage with counseling alone or else you may have to take medication also.

Hello lybrate-user, sorry that your mother is struggling with anxiety and depression. Kindly give her plenty of fresh fruit juices. High carbohydrate good is said to increase serotonin levels to fix mood. Try spinach, sunflower seeds and dried herbs in her diet. If you eat non-veg then white meat can also be beneficial and included in the diet plan. Let me know if you need more further help on this. Hope your mother feels better. Regards.

It is ideal for you to eat small quantities of nutritious food regularly to reduce your weight. It is ideal for you to include at least 30 to 45 minutes of exercise every day to see visible differences in weight. •Have a breakfast by 8: 30 am in the morning and limit it to 250 to 300 calories. •Have a handful of nuts as a mid morning snack at 10: 30 am.

From past few days I am suffering from a phobia namely Trypophobia (as described) on the Internet. Some people posted a fake photo on net which contains lot of wholes in our skin with some insects coming out of it. And at present whenever I see small holes in my surrounding, the image struck to my mind and it makes me feel very uncomfortable. It seems to me as if something is moving around my body as soon as the image struck to my mind. Please help me. Thank You.

Dear lybrate user. As you rightly said it is only an irrational fear (phobia), i.e., fear without any fact or proper reason. Trypophobia is not the name of a diagnosis in the American Psychological Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, Fifth Edition (DSM-5). If possible, you can seek the help of skin specialists (Dearmatologists) in your location to gather some knowledge about this condition, because it comes under their domain so that you will come to a conclusion that there is no such problem exists. One more suggestion is, try to find some other kind of internet-made phobia (just to distract you from your current state of mind).

Whenever you face a camera you feel uneasy and you try to avoid it, and there is no other problem in any spheres of your life except facing camera. This indicates the possibility that you may be having Specific phobia for photography. Specific Phobia is a type of anxiety disorder. In specific phobia, a person has unreasonable or irrational fear related to exposure to specific objects or situations. As a result, the affected person tends to actively avoid direct contact with the objects or situations. The fear or anxiety may be triggered both by the presence and the anticipation of the specific object or situation. Although people with this type of phobias realize that their fear is irrational, even thinking about it can often cause extreme anxiety. Exposure to the object also causes various physical symptoms such as pounding heart, vomiting tendency, diarrhea, sweating, trembling or shaking, numbness or tingling sensation, shortness of breath, dizziness, choking sensation, chest pain or discomfort, stomach upset, chills or hot flashes, looking flushed etc. This phobia may be associated with some traumatic experience of childhood; maybe some unpleasant incident happened during your childhood while clicking photo when you were a child. Though the actual event forgotten, but its impact stayed back. It may also be a learned behavior: as a child you might have seen someone close reacting with fear while taking photo & you started responding the same way, which became intense as you grew up. At times the cause is not known. To reach the actual diagnosis, get yourself evaluated by a Psychiatrist, who will prescribe you medicines or advice you counseling sessions accordingly. Along with medicines, various behavior techniques & therapies are available to help you overcome this problem. Along with, put your effort to come out of this situation. You need to face your fear rather than avoiding it. Before facing the camera, go mentally prepared for it. Try to keep stay calm & relaxed. More you will face the camera, your confidence will grow more & you will become more determined to overcome the situation. After facing the camera, if you feel there is improvement in you, praise & encourage yourself. You are not alone in suffering from this type of problem. Many are suffering from this problem in different forms & many had also overcome it with proper therapy & self determination. So stay positive. Though facing camera make you uncomfortable, you are still managing to control your fears and carry on with daily activities. This is a good positive sign. There is solution to this problem & you can also come out of it.

I lost my dad last month. Have a 9 months old baby. I am only daughter so mother is staying with me now for sometime. I feel extremely angry most of the time and have started to react even for small small things whether it is my mother, husband or baby. Sometimes I have even hit my baby by losing patience and later realized I did wrong. My mother has schizophrenia since I was 3. Dad had bibipolar disorder when I was 20. What to do please help?

Hi you seems to be unable to cope up with the acute grief situation due to death of dad and the resulting circumstances. As the family history shows both your parents are having established psychiatric problems; which means you should be extra careful for yourself in this regard. I am suggesting you to take one dose of a homoeopathic medicine ignatia amara 1000. After 3 days you report. This medicine will help you to get better and it will not affect your baby adversely if you are breast feeding him.

I am taking antidepressant since 5 years. How long should I need it. When I stopped to take it under the advice of my psychiatrist I was depressed.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am glad that you followed the doctor's advise even though it did not work. Even so you can still pick up the pieces and start afresh. My advice is for to seek counseling in tandem with the medication. It is grossly inadequate to rely on medication alone. Counseling will teach you a lot of coping skills and techniques to manage the daily challenges of life. This is a passive way to hope for recovery. You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. Then, if you go episode-free for three years under the combination of medicine and therapy, you could initiate weaning off of the medication gradually and under strict monitoring of the psychiatrist. But it is never too late, and now you have a clear agenda and time plan to resolve the depression. In the meantime please do the following: When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, 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 scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, 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. Be prayerful too and trust that God will intervene too. Do not worry about your colleagues’ progress. You have been handicapped by this disease and your belief system due to this disease. Now go out there and win your battle: nothing is too late in life.

I am 24 years old female. I had smoked marijuana on 30 December. Ever since I feel numbness in my body. Perception of touch has reduced. What should I do to get rid of the numbness? Please help. I am scared.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hopefully this one use may not do any harm. But it looks like you have learned a lesson and will no longer use this substance. There are many controversial claims about marijuana, and we need to wait until the dust settles to finally know the entire truth. The medicinal uses have been proven to a large extent and the use of this substance must be limited to that prescription only. Until then please do not use it at all. The sensation of numbness and perception of reduction in touch sensation may be connected but if you do not indulge in marijuana, it should disappear without much ado. I hope you are one who exercises regularly anyway because that is always good for your health and circulation. So don't worry too much and only if this sensory deprivation persists you will need to meet a doctor.
