I am 33 years old. I have one year old baby girl. My problem is between me and my wife. She don't want to stay with me anymore. Because mother, sister and she fighted once. She love me.And same from my side.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

If both of you love each other, anything can be resolved. If you are suggesting that your mother and sister are staying with you, I feel that that could be the problem. You may be recently married, I assume, to have a 1 year old child. Newly married couples need to have their space, for many reasons, for the first two years. However, if there are mitigating circumstances that cannot be helped, talk to your mom and sister to seek forgiveness and apologize for the sake of peace. Where they justified in their fight or was it for silly reasons? You have to take the person/s? side who were right in this tussle, based on sound principles. If your wife is adamant in spite of this, then diplomacy demands that you appear like you are taking her side but encourage your folks to forgive and make peace with her for the peace of the two of you. Sometime in the future, if your wife is more amenable to be spoken to, discuss this matter with her very carefully, to see if she sees the sense of accepting her wrongs. Don?t think that the matter has to be resolved to everyone?s liking right away. Time is a great leveler, and your wife is probably not in a good mood with baby-sitting to boot, to be tolerant to your folks. Stand by your wife but not when she is wrong. But be patient, be loving and approach this matter expecting more compliance from your folks. It is better that way, really.

You are already taking cbt. Results of cbt sessions vary according to personalities. Some times you may need change in cbt techniques. Talk to your therapist. Secondly, improvement is based on relieving stress. You should detach yourself from the problems you are being posted, because those problems are not yours. Learn to emotionally detach yourself. Take care.

Understanding Depression - Frequently Asked Questions About Depression!

Q. What is depression?

A: Depression is a common medical illness that affects the way one feels and thinks. It causes feeling of sadness and decreased enthusiasm/interest in life activities.

Q. What are the symptoms of depression?

A: The following are the common symptoms of depression:

  • Feeling sad most of the time 
  • Loss of interest in activities once enjoyed
  • Repeated crying spells for no reasons
  • Changes in appetite — weight loss or gain
  • Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
  • Loss of energy, getting tired easily
  • Negative thinking
  • Poor concentration
  • Thoughts of death or suicide

Q. How common is depression?

A. It is one of the commonest medical illness and around one in six people will experience depression once in their life time. 

Q. How is depression different from normal sadness?

A. Feeling sad once in a while is normal however in depression sadness stays for most of the day and one is not able to feel good despite trying to do so. Even if a person cheers up once in a while, its very short lasting and gloom tends to return back.

Q. What causes depression?

A. Multiple factors are responsible. Changes in levels of certain brain chemicals such as serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine are the main cause. Also, genetics is an important factor. Depression tends to run in families. Finally, any stressful life event can trigger the depression. 

Q. What is “smiling depression”?

A. In some cases depression is not so evident. Patients are able to hide it from others and may keep a smile on their face, however they suffer from inside.

Q. Is depression a dangerous disorder?

A. Not really. Since its easily treatable, it can’t be called as ‘dangerous’. However, it should not be taken lightly. Depressed patients can develop medical complications like high blood pressure, diabetes etc. Also, depression is the most common cause of suicide. So prompt treatment is important.

Q. If i am feeling depressed, does that mean i am  a ‘weak person’ ?

A. Not at all. Any one can develop depression. It has got nothing to do with being strong or weak. The important thing is to accept the problem and to work on it. If someone develops ‘high blood pressure’, we don't call that person weak , similarly, we should not presume that depression occurs in weak people.

Q. But i was a very ‘positive person’. How can i develop depression?

A. You are still a ‘positive person’. Thats why you have come to seek help and get better. Please remember depression is a medical illness. Once it gets treated, you will be back to your normal happy self.

Q. Is depression treatable?

A. Absolutely yes. Between 80-90% of patients respond to treatment. A combination of medications and psychotherapy (counselling sessions) is the best approach.

Q. Do I need to take treatment lifelong?

A. Absolutely not. In majority of patients, a course of six months to one year is enough. If one have had multiple episodes of depression in the past, treatment may be longer.

Q.  But antidepressants are habit forming and have serious side effects?

A. Totally untrue. Antidepressants are not habit forming. There is no possibility of developing addiction to antidepressants. However one should not stop them suddenly. Its important to gradually decrease the dosage of medicines before stopping it. The side effects are uncommonly seen and even when they occur they are mild such as acidity, stomach upset etc. You should discuss about the side effects with your doctor.

Q. But the google search shows a lot of side effects of medications?

A. Anybody can write anything on the internet. You should not blindly trust it. The list of side effects that you see on internet includes the ones which are extremely rare, so no need to get scared of those. The doctor sitting inside the chamber has put tens of years in studying about these illnesses and treatment. Please trust your doctor more than any random google search. 

Q.  Can i do something on my own to get better?

A. Yes, many things. To start with, go for a short ten minutes run everyday. Practice yoga or meditation. Try not to be alone. But most importantly, take medicines regularly and come for therapy sessions regularly.

Kleptomania - Tips to Deal With It!

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Solapur
Kleptomania -  Tips to Deal With It!

Kleptomania is a form of psychiatric disorder. It is a difficult disorder, and an affected person experiences a lot of shame, remorse, stress or feels guilt, which are associated with stealing. It is categorized as an impulse control disorder which affects the behavior of a patient. Kleptomania may be associated with obsessive compulsive disorder. The patient develops an impulse to steal and cannot control this impulse and later feels guilty.

Here are several tips which you can use in order to deal with kleptomania.

  1. Understanding the situation: It must be clearly understood that a kleptomaniac person does not steal with the intention of becoming rich. It is done only for mental satisfaction and to pacify the urge of stealing that comes from within to an affected person. The patient usually does not care about the object he steals, but he only cares about the act of stealing. Usually, kleptomaniac patients steal insignificant things. When an affected patient becomes extremely nervous or fearful, they tend to steal an object. After the act, they feel much better and relieved. Later, a feeling of guilt arises in the person about his stealing act.

  2. Treat the affected person gently: A kleptomaniac person requires love, care and great understanding from his/her loved ones or family members in order to recover. The problem and the situation must be recognized and perceived carefully. A person close to the patient should deal with him gently and try to make him understand. In many situations, a kleptomaniac may be aware of his actions but does not confess to avoid harassment.

  3. The situation is different from stealing: It must be kept in mind that the actions of a kleptomaniac cannot be exactly termed as stealing. Stealing is an organized activity done by conscious individuals in order to gain something material or money related. Kleptomania is an act of impulse which a patient conducts for psychological satisfaction. The patients are fully aware that stealing is not the right thing, but yet they cannot control their impulse to steal.

  4. Treatment procedures: Once a kleptomaniac person accepts that they are suffering from a disorder, professional help must be taken. Cognitive Behavior Therapy is the primary treatment for kleptomania. This includes aversion therapy where a distraction is created when a person develops the impulse to steal an object. Systematic desensitization is another process where a patient is made to imagine a scenario to get over the urge of stealing. Covert desensitization makes a patient imagine negative impacts of the stealing act such as arrest or harassment.

The social life of a kleptomaniac becomes very difficult and both the patient, and his family are subjected to a lot of trouble and harassment. Necessary measures must be taken for kleptomania.
