You are suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder. There are repetitive thoughts due to which anxiety increases and causes one to perform compulsion that is repetitive checking washing etc. This occurs due to a neurotransmitter imbalance inside the brain. There is treatment for the same and it can be made better. Kindly consult a psychiatrist in your area or you can consult me in private for further help.

In last one decade we are seeing a huge increase in Substance abuse in this country specially among youngsters. The use of cannabis, alcohol and tobacco has become rampant in all college campuses causing rise in various substance abuse and psychological problems. Research shows the risk of addiction increases if person starts at young age. Younger the age of starting, higher the chance of addiction. As the social taboo decreases on use of Cannabis (mostly due to legalisation in Westren countries), Alcohol and Tobacco (both due to their depiction in media and rising corporate culture of work hard party hard) there is endemic spreading in our country of these drugs which harm both mental and physical health. In my next post i would talk of why addiction is a biological disease not just a bad habit

For Edward syndrome (Trisomy 18) and Patau syndrome (Trisomy 13) there is high risk. Hence you will have to do Amniocentesis to rule out the risk.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

Hai. Am 26 years old female teacher. I started to talk with the person just to irritate my friend. Now the problem is unable to be without talking to him. When I'm not getting response from him it's hurting and makes me cry. Always thinking about him. Could you please help me in this regards.

The information you have given suggests that you have very limited friends, may be there is none with whom you maintain a frequent contact. When you started talking to this person to irritate somebody else you had a motive to continue that act and you have been doing it so regularly and consistently that has become a habit. More over over a period of time the talk would have become very personal nad you would have started sharing many things which would have given you a feeling of comfort. This habituation is making you feel that by not talking on one day you are missing something that you do regularly and this missing feeling is leading to secondary thoughts that there is some special bonding with the person. This status can happen with any regular activity you do. Start contact your other friends regularly or create a new circle of friends with whom you can interact whenever you feel like talking or sharing some details with others. This can help you to overcome your current turmoil. If you find it difficult consult a psychologist.

Hi my friend it is not due to aging. You are young. I will prescribe you some harmless flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to get original ones. Mix 4 drops of water violet + 4 drops of impatiens + 4 drops of chicory + 4 drops of mimulus + 2 drops of agrimony. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink once daily before sleeping.

Hi, Its is advised you show yourself to a psychiatrist your symptoms point out towards mild depression and it has nothing to do with having everything going perfect in life. It can happen to anyone just like BP, Sugar etc. The earlier its treated the better it is. Apart from that consult a psychologist for psychotherapy who will help you to manage your stress as a result of depression. I would like you to practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Practice it daily 15 minutes morning evening or whenever your consciousness is clouded with thoughts.

My boy is aged 16yrs. He is very poor in study and very lazy and careless. When we try to understand for leaving lazyness and to be serious study he behave unlisten. He don't have dream for his future even not any hobby. Kindly suggest what I should do.

Please take him for a career guidance test and an aptitude test. These will determine what he is made for in terms of his profession. He could, if necessary, switch over to something technical and do a diploma, and if he proves himself good for that he may enter engineering by skipping a couple of years because of his diploma and complete the course in a shorter duration. Ideally, he could have pursued his studies, but if he is not inclined and is more drawn towards something technical, he may respond with more vigor. At this age he is likely to be going through a spurt in the male sex hormone, testosterone. Due to this chemical he will have three behaviors not at all known to him: he will be sexually active, rebellious and aggressive, and he will have acne and pimple problems. Fortunately, this has a two-year duration only and he will stabilize after that. But if you do not work with him carefully, he could do quite some damage to his life and to that of the family: I advice you not to follow that path. Be understanding, and keep all communications channels open. You need to be firm and completely unwilling in three areas of choices: if it is criminal, if it is life-threatening, and if it is immoral. Follow a path of least resistance and work as though you are with him, always.

Anxiety is a very normal emotion, which gives rise to feelings of nervousness every now and then. An anxiety disorder is a serious medical condition in which people experience a high degree of distress and mental trauma, which causes difficulties in leading a normal life. People suffering from this medical condition experience high levels of anxiety and nervousness almost all the time. Here are the symptoms that indicate you're suffering from anxiety disorder. 1. Excessive worry - This condition persists if you worry about the day to day activities a bit too much on a regular basis. It is identified when you start taking too much stress about very petty things, which tends to affect you in an adverse manner. A noticeable sign of excessive worry can be too much fatigue. 2. Sleep problems - Problems falling asleep at the right time and problems in maintaining a sound sleep are two signs that indicate you have an anxiety disorder. 3. Irrational fears - This symptom is not generalized; instead, it is specific and subjective in relation to a particular thing or situation. The fears that are experienced under this category are sudden and unexpected in nature and there is no fixed rationale behind these fears. 4. Muscle tension - Muscle discomfort and pain is one of the leading physiological causes of an anxiety disorder. The pain felt is chronic and pervasive, and is very common among people facing situations of anxiety. If you are exposed to constant periods of anxiety, you will experience fatigue, muscle pains and unwillingness to work. 5. Chronic indigestion - Problems related to the digestive system are also a sign of anxiety disorder. In this case, you may face constant digestive problems accompanied by a common disorder called IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome). IBS refers to an anxiety situation in the digestive tract, which is characterized by stomach aches, cramping, bloating, gas, constipation, and/or diarrhea. Apart from the above-mentioned symptoms, other symptoms of an anxiety disorder include stage fright, self- consciousness, panic attacks, memory flashbacks, perfectionism, compulsive behaviors, self- doubt, and such others. But id you have serious problem you may see a psychiatrist and discuss.

Hi lybrate-user. It appears that you are having panic attacks. It is a common problem and mostly result from misinterpretation of normal bodily symptoms. One would need to understand your symptoms in more details. Like when it started, in what circumstances do you get these symptoms, any symptom in between the attack. Very effective treatment is available for these symptoms. Meet a nearby psychiatrist.

Your quality of life will gradually decline and can develop many psychosomatic diseases like hypertension, diabetes etc etc. This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life, 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. I assure you that I can manage this and help u.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Don’t get discouraged with relapses with regard to addictions. You must persevere at it again and again until you are victorious. All addictions appease the hedonic drive in us, i.e. we are all driven by a desire to avoid pain and seek pleasure. In life generally, this entails a long effort followed by a short pleasure. Drugs and drinks turn this reality of life on its head by increasing the pleasure and reducing the pain. Naturally we, and animals too, would rather seek this short cut, even if it were to kill us. Apart from that there is dependence and tolerance, two factors that work together, to increase our need for the substance and to need more of it for the same pleasure, over time. These effects condition us psychologically and physically, that giving up becomes a very difficult task. That is why detoxification is recommended for chronic cases to eliminate the physical craving at least to start the process of relatively easier recovery. There is another drive called the Script Drive, which needs elaborate explanations. I recommend you read my book on addictions to understand that more. On the receipt of Rs. 250/-, I can send you a copy postage free. There are also the effects of drinking on driving and accidents that take away so many lives. Absenteeism leads to loss of pay and livelihood. How much damage drinking does to homes, marriages, and families, is simply immeasurable.
