Dear, You seem to be having many medical questions because you are suffering from either generalized anxiety disorder or somatisation or somatoform disorder or eating disorder or other psychiatric disorder. Please stop reading all about the various changes in anxiety and stress and project it on yourself. Normal stress is managed by release of stress hormones by the body to cope up with it. They are NORMAL, beneficial way of dealing with stress. The above disorders are abnormal release of stress hormones and its effect on many bodily functions including HDL and LDL metabolism. The above disorders are NOT diagnosed by blood tests. Please consult a psychiatrist and take treatment both as tablets and as talk therapy.

Hello Doctor, I feel very low confident always by nature. I always feel that what ever is happening is because of my mistake. And anything I will do, will be wrong only or anything I will speak. So I want to know that is it because of my nature or there is something else.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It is true that there is always something that we contribute to a situation, be it as minor as 1% too. But to blame yourself for all of the misery is not only not correct, it is not even possible. The reason you may be doing this is that you may feel inadequate before others and may not have a good self-image. If you do not recognize yourself and your worth in a proper manner, then you will continuously undermine yourself and in comparison to others you will always see yourself as low. You should attend a personality development course, personal grooming course, conversational skills course, elocution and public speaking courses, go for higher education, do good body building courses and aerobic exercises, and get some help with your emotions from a counselor. This may be a trait that you have developed because of some issues in your upbringing and in very rare cases there may be an inbuilt nature that you have inherited. But the good news is that it can be resolved.

What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. There are few things I would like you to try. 1. When you feel sad. Feel the feeling of sadness fully. You may close your eyes and let that sadness flow through your mind and body. If tears flow let them flow. Cry it out. Feeling what you feel fully and totally is healing. Once you feel your sadness fully. You might feel the lightness in your heart. Feel that too and say out loud. And engage your mind remembering some good qualities and good times you spent with the person you are missing. 2. Regular simple breath awareness meditation also help manage your loss. 3. You may also l write daily 3 to 5 things you are grateful to every morning. These things could be as simple as having a bed to sleep and food to eat. Affirm what you write and add new thing in your list for 7 to10 days. 4. Along with this engaging yourself in some kind of physical exercise such as walking or yoga. 5. Engaging yourself with something like reading, listening to good upbeat music, gardening will also help you feel little lighter. 6. You may decide to go out and help someone in need. Rendon act of kindness has been proven helpful in both greaving process and depression. Sometimes long lasting grieving may convert into depression and you need external support to cope up and build resilience. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Whenever you will try and unable to change people, places or situations, you will get angry. Please try to change yourself not others. Do daily meditation/walk and yoga think positive live life one day at a time, not in the past or future.

Dear user. As you already know, this is not an issue with only you. There are many people out there with the same sort of fate and you can always take some tips from those people. Feeling lonely without partner is a reality and you cannot run away from reality. Accept that you are alone and spend time to think about your life with your partner. I suggest online counseling for you. Take care.

Sir I am facing problems of memory loss and concentration lacking. This is due to side effects of allopathy antidepressant orange 5 mg medicine that I was taking for last 8 years. Now I am not taking. I have been advised to take ginkgo biloba 1x. It is improving my symptoms. Sir I want to know if I leave this medicine after 1 month then will I get the above problems back or not? For maintaining normal memory and concentration, how long I have to take this medicine? please reply me by homeopathic expert only.

Continue gingo biloba 1x tabs for 3 months. After that you take the medicine alternate days for a month. Then once in 3 days for a month. Then weekly once for 2 months. Then you can stop. Immediate stoppage can reverse the symptoms. Tapering the dose is the correct method. And also you must think positive always that my memory is good. Everything become alright even if I stop my medicines. Be cool be relaxed. Nothing to worry.

I don't concentrate my mind in class. Please give me suggestion how to control my mind in classroom?

You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that you and the family go for counseling too.

Quitipin is an anti psychotic and not for stress, taking alternate days can lead to serious side effects and not recommended in any health guidelines, it is not over the counter drug to be taken as per your wish. Consult a psychiatrist, get diagnosed correctly and take medicine as per his advise and attend review regularly. Your case reminds me of one of my patient who did the same with quitipin and landed in stroke, i.e. Paralysis of one side of body.

I am 31. Married and a mother of one. Although I love my child and husband there are various other parts of my life that I'm unhappy about. I miss work and freedom.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am not at all surprised. Being young, and I suppose educated, and the child is already one, you must be bored, if you know you could do a lot of things instead of being a stay-at-home mom. So why are you not doing what you want to do! Talk to your husband, and organize some childcare, ideally from family, and go ahead and do something. Many housewives want to contribute to society and are bored stiff staying homebound. If you think that there will be some resistance at home, talk to someone who can negotiate this with the family. I am with you though about your aspirations. Now to check on another matter: has your child had enough of mothering, and is she ready for the symbiosis to take a bit of a turn for the separation from you. This is usually done around three years of age, other things being normal. Your child may develop abandonment issues and/or separation anxiety by your actions. If you have a close family member, the child is already attached to, it may ease this problem. Weigh this concern and then make your decision. The child is not responsible to come into this world. Your decision should not negatively impact this innocent kid. If you love this child, do what is best for the kid because this age will not come again, ever. You can always do something from home first, and then when the time is ripe, venture out for broader field work.

Seems like a variant of an anxiety disorder. Several medicines such as paroxetine, fluvoxamine, sertraline can be useful. However, the medicines will be safe and easily cure the condition. But they will need supervision of a good psychiatrist. Take care!

Since this is a recent development, it will need some kind of treatment. But recent onset also means that it will respond very well to treatment. Depending upon the severity and your choice, either medicines or counseling can be done. Please revert back if interested. Thanks!

Dear lybrate-user, You are having depressive symptom currently. You do not need stress for depression to occur. Depression also occur in hypothyroidism, vit b12 and vit D3 deficiency. Get your thyroid test done first. We will plan to start antidepressant medication once we talk to you. You can start brisk walking in morning, maintain your sleep and wakeup time and get yourself involved in small projects like learning new musical instrument or any thing which you like. All of these thing will help you. All d best.

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.
