Hi all, I am suffering from gran mal epilepsy from past 6 years. My age is 21 and I had been taking medication for the last 5 years but still I am suffering. Its really difficult for me to study or work due to this disorder. My doctor says that you have to take medication for the lifetime which is really scary, so I researched the Internet and got to know that the disorder can be remedied by some surgery. So right now want some consulting and help that what should I do. I'll be very thankful for your help.

First the type of your epilepsy should be diagnosed properly. If medicines can control your seizures, surgery is not indicated. Only if seizures are uncontrolled, surgery is considered. For that you have to consult personally to determine the course of management.

I am suffering from OCD for the last ten years. Can you suggest what should be done?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (ocd) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to" clean off the germs" however, there are many other examples. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (cbt), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (ssri) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of ocd greatly. Kindly consult a psychiatrist.

Stress - 5 Ways To Deal With Its Wear & Tear!

Stress - 5 Ways To Deal With Its Wear & Tear!

With today's lifestyle, it is almost impossible to avoid stress. Each person experiences stress in a different way and can tolerate different levels of stress. For some work is a source of stress while for others it could be strained relationships or financial trouble. Stress, if not dealt correctly can harm a person mentally, emotionally and physically. Stress can also make a person age faster. Hence. it becomes essential to understand how to deal with the wear and tear of stress.

  • Cut back on caffeine, alcohol and nicotine: Stress can fasten your heartbeat and lead to anxiousness and depression. Turning to nicotine, alcohol or any form of caffeinated drink may temporarily make you feel better but will worsen the situation in the long run. This is because all three of them are considered stimulants. Instead hydrate your body with plenty of water, fresh fruits juices and herbal teas.
  • Exercise: Regular exercise is beneficial for a healthy mind and body. Exercising give you some time to yourself and gives you a break from whatever may be triggering your stress. Stress also causes the release of hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol. This can make you jumpy and tense. However, by exercising these hormones can be put to use and your body can be brought back to a calmer state.
  • Talk to someone: Stress can lead to anxiety and depression. This can make you socially withdrawn and lead to even more stress. Hence, it is essential to find someone who you can open up to and share your thoughts and experience with. This will also help you make better decisions as stress can cloud your judgement.
  • Get a good night s sleep: Stress can affect your sleep cycles and make you either an insomniac or make you sleep excessively. In both cases, you wake up feeling tired and sans any energy to take on the next day. Give yourself a routine of going to bed and waking up at the same time every day to fight these effects of stress and to give your mind time to refresh itself. It will also help to avoid watching television or working on laptops or mobiles for an hour before going to bed.
  • Prioritize: Seeing a never ending to-do list is one of the most common stress triggers. In such situations, stress can make you unable to complete your tasks efficiently and you re left either feeling overworked or with an even longer to-do list for the next day. Hence, it is important to learn to prioritise tasks and get them done one at a time. Also, learn to say NO to people when you know you do not have the time to take on additional tasks. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. A transvestite is a person who likes to wear the clothes of the opposite sex. Your problem is called transvestcism. There is nothing to be worried of. This is another impulse disorder and can be treated with the help oc counseling and cognitive behavior therapy (cbt). Take care.

Hi, I would like to seek help regarding my preset situation. I am 30 years old. My parents were looking for an alliance for me from 4 years. I could not find a suitable alliance for me. I was not doing well in my job also. I am good at work but can not handle office politics but I continued working only to support my family. Couple of months back I got engaged to guy. It so happened when I saw his photo I could not like him, later when I saw him through skype also I did not like. But my parents convinced me every time it is not right rejecting proposals now I have to take a call as I am running out of age. So when the guy came to India we met him, again I could not like him, I was totally confused. Sometimes I could feel it is ok I can go ahead with marriage later I felt noo. The Guy was well educated and financially sound as well. All kind of thoughts I could not control. I wanted to ignore everything and go ahead with marriage but the pain I was suffering did not allow me. I consulted a doctor he said I am suffering from depression and anxiety, I was put on tablets. We had to call off the engagement. Now after couple of months I have become alright. I am not working. Now my parents want me to settle down. The very thought of marriage upsets me. I think of the stage I suffered. Can you please suggest what I can do? I was not a person like this I was an individual capable of taking decision but not I am in this stage. Thanks!

If you are having depression or anxiety it is not your fault at all. Having anticipatory anxiety for marriage is understandable but there are ways of dealing with it. Your previous engagement had lots of uncertainties as you do not know the person well and so your anxiety is justified. If you feel better now then you can definitely go ahead for marriage. If you still feel very anxious and that refrains you from dealing with the decision of marriage then consult your psychiatrist and discuss it in details.

I am faced some unwanted anxiety from last two years. What I should do for free this anxiety.
Your symptoms may have manifested itself at late adolescence and were indicative that there was something in your childhood that has precipitated them. If you know of what that is then meet with a counselor to work on that contributing factor. In relation to your question, if you combined counseling with the medication you can expect the best outcomes for your anxiety disorder. However, you must be episode-free for at least three years before the doctor will decide on weaning you off of the medication but in a gradual and effective manner. Counseling will help in training you will skills and techniques to cope with the daily challenges in life and will give you a fair chance to manage your life when the reduction in medicines is initiated by the doctor. You must also develop your constitution to make it fit enough to cope with fear, felt many times unnecessarily. This involves physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully.

I am suffering from schizophrenia. But I know everything the doctors say schizophrenic activities were happen in real. I do not know how to react to them in real life. Please do help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must be put on medication and a lot of occupational therapy and intense psychotherapy are needed to mitigate the symptoms. Kindly seek a psychiatrist’s help immediately and do not attempt alternative therapy until a psychiatric evaluation has been performed. A correct diagnosis must be made and prescription followed accordingly. It is very difficult to attempt treatment with other forms of therapy, which lack the tools to tackle this serious mental disorder. In fact, they may cause irreparable damage even with good intentions. There is no doubt that this disease is debilitating but you must persevere not only with the medication but also with counseling. The counseling gives you an avenue to work with your emotional issues and you will develop skills in coping with the everyday challenges that life throws at you. I hope your visits to the psychiatrist were regular and the medication has been frequently reviewed during the years of this disease. You need to be occupied, and fit into a routine of interesting activities every day. Yoga and meditation is also necessary to train your brain to be disciplined. Exercise always plays a stabilizing role and is the most holistic medicine besides. If you have been diagnosed with paranoia the mind is regularly perturbed by unreal fears, a reality check through counseling will help you discern fact from fiction. Your socializing and maintaining steady relations is the hallmark of a good recovery program. If I am to assume that there were no relapses during this period, then that is a good sign too. This means that your condition has remained stable all of these years! Now go to the next level along with therapy and you can look forward to a more functional and productive lifestyle. Regarding your reaction to the many differences​ of perception between you and the rest of the world, it is important to check it out with a person you trust and learn to identify with that person's perception and adapt accordingly. This is a long drawn process and is worth every effort for the results it is capable of producing and alleviating your life.

I am not able to judge myself what I am going through. I can't stop thoughts racing all over in my mind specially for my life. I become optimism as well as pessimism at the same time. I usually tend to behave in front of everyone like everything is ok but unfortunately whenever I stay alone I can't stop crying pathetically and even sometimes laugh at the jokes on which no one even gives reaction and again I am the only one who become like a foolish person ever. I become so much talkative and want to discuss on any topic with anyone to stay out of stress but no one is able to get awkward behaviour. I had sleepless nights from last three years but 2016 was worst of all. Effects on my health are ridiculous. I don't know how but whenever I got anxiety attacks I guess or whenever I cried a lot feeling lost and without any hope I suffered from constipation a lot. I start drinking excessive of water or eating a lot whenever facing any kind of fear. This year due to constipation and my other health effects like feeling tired always or oversleeping the attendance also became very less. Even I have a very bad habit of biting skin at the side of the nails while thinking curiously about some or the other thing or being nervous at most of the times and specially whenever I study. I want to get rid of all this nonsense. Cannot lead my life like this further anymore.

Hi, Thanks for writing in, welcome to the forum. I think there is an underlying current of mood instability. This could be seen in a variety of conditions including personality styles like borderline personality and in more severe forms, in bipolar disorders. It seems that your problems are mostly in the personality domain but it is very difficult to make an accurate statement without seeing you. I suggest that you should meet a psychiatrist at the earliest and get a proper evaluation done so that the problem can be sorted out. Do not worry! People have much worser problems than this and get better. I am quite confident that with appropriate help you will get better. Take care!

Cut down your study material into portions and make a time table. Study for 45 mins at a time then take a 5-15 min break. Study during the hours you are most alert and receptive. Maintain regular sleep and wake times. Do some mindfulness techniques that will help your concentration. Yoga and meditation also help to improve concentration. You can consult me for further management if required.

Running in wrong size shoes can be problematic. Your parents may not be aware of it. Your parents are concerned about your future and they are aware that there is risk involved in any surgery hence they must be opposing it. But, I can imagine that it must be difficult for you to move around with pain in your heels. Kindly consult a doctor and a yoga therapist and explore options other than surgery. Surgery should be opted for, only if there is no other option.

What can I do my husband is get doubt for me. He says my affair with other man but its not true. Please advise.

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
There could be many reasons for him to doubt you. He might be prone to doubting people generally. Or he wants you to be within his control and this would be a good way to do that. Or some person has said something to him and he believes it. Whatever the reasons are, it would be impacting your married life as well as peace of mind. It would be important to go for marital counselling to clear out the air between the two of you. Sometimes other issues are also linked to doubting behaviour, like poor self esteem, feeling uncared for, suspicious nature etc. Counselling will help you both to voice such other aspects of hidden nature and improve the quality of communication between you two.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. This usually happens because f lack of self confidence and lack of self esteem. Lack of proper experience in the field also can cause these problems. You need to improve your attitude, self confidence and self esteem along with experience. I suggest online therapy to improve all these. Take care.

I lost my closed friend by accident. So I am very sad and I want to recovery from this. Please help me.
What you are going through is greaving. Loosing loved one is not easy to deal with emotionally. I am sorry for your loss. When you are greaving, your mind is continuously engaged in sad and disturbing thoughts and feeling of loss and perhaps guilt. When sadness over powers you it is difficult to feel any other feelings. Even feeling happy makes you feel guilty and uneasy. Slow but effective way to over cone sadness is to engage yourself in some neutral activities such as cleaning. Walking or readjng a light book. Once you try that for few days you may be ready for following things. 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. How wonderful! 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. If you are not feeling any change over next 2 weeks or if you lack motivation to initiate and maintain above activities feel free contact me and we could work together for few weeks to months to reverse your cycle and help you appreciate what you have. Hope this helps wishing you very best. Edit answer.

Dear lybrate user. When people ruminate, they over-think or obsess about situations or life events, such as work or relationships. Research has shown that rumination is associated with a variety of negative consequences, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, binge-drinking and binge-eating. I suggest you to force stop rumination. Engage in physical activities, outdoor games, entertainment etc. When in work try to provide some sort of break to yourself every half an hour. Take care.

Lybrate-user, first of all I must say that I am glad that you are aware about what your exact problem is and you are willing to take action to make it right. I am sure that you know that all problems that you have discredit about your anger, irritation and lack of motivation to do anything etc are because of your heart is broken. This stressful situation is casing all negative emotions in your life. It is wise to end your relationship with someone you can't trust. You are young and I am sure you have leant your lesson. You will find someone more appropriate for you only of you let go of this relationship. It is difficult to do so and you will need help. Building your resilience is a way to go about this situation. Chronic stress is a byproduct of our busy life style these days, which at times leads to feeling of burnout and depression. Building your resilience will help you manage your stress and help in depression. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. As a psychologist and trained life and wellness coach I will be able to help and guide you systematically if you feel you are stuck and not able to maintain your motivation for change. In that case feel free to contact me again. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.
