I'm not too sure if its prolonged depression or borderline or bipolar. I get mood swings. It shifts from extreme happy to extreme sad. I take things personally n it affects me a lot. I don't like to socialise, prefer being alone. I'm an empath. And I take on others energies /problems as my own. I overthink a lot too. I'm taking zaptra 12.5 mg since June before that had tried homeopathic med too. I still get highs and lows. I have tried to harm myself and also in extreme anger I cry n slap myself. I used to be a very fun loving n ambitious girl. I feel lethargic now. Little things affect me and I cry a lot. Very tired of feeling this way .Can someone help me online?

In borderline personality depression will be there as you feel emptiness, loneliness, seek of self assurance, mood swings, shallowness, etc. When there is a personality issue you need to try not to convert it into a disorder by self analysing the situation you react and the way you handle every life situation. Personalizing, taking everything straight to heart form part and parcel of cognitive error which is common in depression. Along with medication seek help for CBT with a clinical psychologist nearby, which might help you.

General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap some wine for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.

If I smoke 2 cigarettes a week, what effect can it cause to my health. I hv been smoking for the past one and a half year.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It is near impossible to calculate the effects of smoking at any frequency. Cigarette smoke contains almost 7000 chemicals, most of which are harmful. That itself indicates that even one cigarette can harm your body and that of others around you. Each cigarette effects your erectile capacity! instead of relying on statistics, just quit it and you will be safe.

You should get counseling done. Depression has a particular pattern of thoughts and one gets stuck into the pattern. Take actions in life which you have not taken in past for the fear of outcome or social evaluation. There is dissatisfaction created by your mind for not having or not becoming something and the mind also tells you to get rid of this. Do not fight your depression, it will get magnified that way. Get up and do what you want irrespective of the outcome!

Pathological Gambling - 5 Ways to Control it

Pathological Gambling - 5 Ways to Control it

Pathological gambling is a situation in which a person is unable to resist the impulse to gamble and this leads to harmful consequences on the personal and social front of an individual. Pathological gambling is repetitive in nature, and a person cannot stop gambling by any means. The person would try to get money anyhow to gamble and he would feel uncomfortable or irritated at the idea of quitting gambling.

In order to control pathological gambling, it is advised that a person should quit gambling totally. Here are some measures which you can follow to control pathological gambling.

  1. Rehabilitation Programs: Both inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation programs can curb pathological gambling in a person. The program of a treatment center, if followed by heart, can cure the gambling problem. Moreover, by staying at a rehab for a period of time, a person will also stay away from gambling and will not get a chance to do so. Outpatient rehabilitation programs like group sessions and classes or one-on-one therapy sessions can also prevent gambling addicts from gambling without staying away from home.
  2. Twelve-step Program: The twelve step program by Gamblers Anonymous or GA may help a person overcome pathological gambling. For people who cannot afford long term rehabilitation programs, the twelve steps are ideal. Based on the same principles of the Alcoholics Anonymous, this program helps you to build a support group comprising of other recovering or recovered gambling addicts. Meetings are held every day, and you must attend these meetings to get help and encouragement.
  3. Cognitive behavioral therapy: Other than group therapies and support groups, psychotherapy also helps in dealing with pathological gambling problems. A one-on-one session with a therapist is very essential as gambling addiction arises from deep emotional issues. Clearing these issues would benefit the affected person. Treating the underlying issues may stop pathological gambling. Opening up to a therapist may be effective.
  4. Medication: In certain cases, medication is required to help get over pathological gambling. Gambling addiction may result on account of other underlying mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder. Treating the underlying causes with proper medication will cure the pathological gambling problem. Your impulse must be taken under control.
  5. Changes in lifestyle: Pathological gambling causes extreme loss of a person’s financial condition. A recovering pathological gambler must hand over all his financial responsibilities to a trusted family member or friend. Places such as casinos or gambling events should be avoided to restrict relapse.

Pathological gambling is a severe situation, which can cause great loss and harm to a person from many perspectives. One must take all necessary measures required to bring pathological gambling under control.

Dear lybrate user. You don't have to take any medicines. You quit smoking. Immediately your body starts repairing your longs and other organs. Let your body do it. In the meanwhile you can help enhance the process. Include good amount of fruits and fruit juices in your diet. Also make sure you do a lot of physical exercise and take part in outdoor games. Take care.

At the age 12, I saw a movie in which there was a clip that shown, a father was loving, cuddling his 10 years old son in a way that my brain absorbed that scene as an adult male sexually exploiting a young little boy. From that day, I feel like sexually enjoying with a young boy. However, in reality, I didn't take up any such step. But I do feel whenever I see a good innocent looking face of a young boy, my eyes stay over his face. Am I a pedo or gay ? How I can get rid of this menace? please advise.

You are neither a pedo nor a gay as far as your impulses are under control. Most of us have one or more aberrations in our thought patterns which we could not easily spit out from our mind. List out the psychological, social consequences of both the child being abused and the person who abuses him (if it is your child.). You will never even think of it again.

Just had breakup. Unable to concentrate on studies. My ca-ipcc exams are on head. Any how want to crack it. Frustration and depression are main problem.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Another broken heart! I have been there, done that. But it is difficult. Take this as a challenge and do better than expected by concentrating on your studies, immediately. If you are expecting this relationship to somehow work out, then it may be even more difficult. But if it is clear, that it is all over, then, even though it is painful, it is relatively a better situation to deal with. If it is the latter, just get rid of every reminder of that girl, and change your room decor, friends, jaunts, social circles, activities, and just throw yourself into your studies. If you love the person, just let her go, and if she is meant for you, she will return. I am sure you have heard this before but it is true. Change your schedule, and put in a lot of time focusing on your studies. Take charge of your life, and don?t let a girl, if she is undeserving, ruin your plans. I am glad you want to do your exams. I really like that.

If all this is leading to a life-threatening situation, you can both inform your parents that the choice they have left you with is that you will be dead if not allowed to marry and alive if allowed. Let them know the seriousness of the situation. In the meantime do not do anything silly: life is extremely precious and nobody is worth dying for. So think logically that even if they still do not agree, it is not the end of the world. If you two truly love each other, you can both refuse the proposals brought by your parents until you are allowed to marry. But both must be on the same page.

Hello. My mother is suffering from mental illness. I learnt that she is suffering from Schizophrenia. She is unable to judge between what is real and what Isn't. Its getting serious day by day. She is very rigid and is opposing to consult any doctor. I'm afraid that she does anything against herself if we forcefully take her to the doctor Please help me and suggest what to do? I'm looking for good medical treatment in Hyderabad. Thank you.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Most people who are unwell with serious illnesses like schizophrenia do not admit to their sickness. This is a difficult task to convince her but you can invite some therapists and even doctors to visit home, as friends and they can initiate the therapy in their own style. The other option is to visit the doctor and describe the behavioral symptoms and that person will prescribe the medication that can be mixed with her food without her knowledge. After that, she may become more amenable and may be willing to visit the doctor. Ideally, she must be under both kinds of therapy to get the maximum benefits. This is a lifelong condition but it can be treated to make the person functional and stabilized. Initially, there will some hiccups until the medication takes effect and the optimum dosage is identified. It is a long and arduous task but if you persevere and give her all the support, you will get some pleasant results. Please find someone in Hyderabad who is known to treat schizophrenia.

I sometimes feel that I am travelling back in time. Sometimes when I am sad and I try to relax, all of a sudden I feel that for a second or two, I was in place I used to visit earlier, e.g. I was in my hostel room with few friends, or at a friends home, opening slippers before getting inside. These things make me nostalgic. anyway, anytime, I remember something, and then I become sad, thinking of what all I have lost. Does it happen with many people, do they feel that they have travelled back for a few seconds? I am currently not living with my husband since 1 year as he is living abroad, I miss him, living with my parents in my hometown, I have ample time to think about my past, and regret few things, which otherwise I had forgotten when I was with my husband. Am I disturbed internally? Do I need help, as I sometimes get very sad and then I feel that I am worthless and I am counting my life backwards. I feel only my husband understands me and only he can help me from getting distracted.

Hello lybrate-user, Don't feel panic or any fear if you see your past. You can do it because you have strong visualization and it is positive. You can use this sense to create a good present and future of yours. When you want or try to relax try to visualize those things you want in your life at present and in future. Like your husband is with you and you both live happily or you are in abroad with your husband. If you can and want consult with a psychologist near from you. If you want any other help you can contact us.

Can you suggest some medicine so that I can control my feeling at night and help me in getting improve my physical health.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Dear Lybrate User, Masturbation should not be done for more than twice in a week. Frankly speaking, there is no basic difference between masturbation & sexual intercourse. In both the cases orgasm occurs at the point of ejaculation of sperm due to continuous mechanical stimulation of the shaft of penis by rubbing. Now you may wonder why there is so much taboo about masturbation. Let’s take a inner view of the post-ejaculatory state of human body Just after ejaculation of sperm a sudden decrease in the amount of TESTOSTERONE hormone occurs. This TESTOSTERONE hormone plays an important role in metabolism & muscle growth. Daily Masturbation leads to a chronic decrease in the TESTOSTERONE production as a result of which the metabolism process of body becomes slow. This internal slow metabolism is externally manifested as muscle loss, weakness, fatigue etc. So, it is evident why masturbating too much is prohibited. It is often seen that if a person grows a habit of daily masturbation from young age his blood TESTOSTERONE level becomes quite low than other people. This TESTOSTERONE hormone plays an important role in the development of body as well as sperm production. In fact because of this TESTOSTERONE hormone the male sexual characters grow in a human body. Low TESTOSTERONE may also lead to complete absence of the morning erection which is often experienced on waking up from sleep in morning. So it is advisable not to masturbate for more than twice in a week. Addiction to masturbation denotes that you are continuously indulged in sexual thoughts. This type of thoughts is common in people who live a sedentary life. If you really have a sedentary life-style you should get yourself out from it immediately. Socialize yourself. Do some physical exercise daily. Drink a lots of water. Create a routine of your daily schedule & maintain it. Stop watching porn in case you have developed a habit of watching it Also you can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture ORIGANUM Q, 10 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to control your excessive sexual desire. However, you can masturbate for twice in a week. In order to minimise the after-effects of over-masturbation you can take Homoeopathic CINCHONA OFFICINALIS 30 or CHINA 30, 5 drops, thrice daily in empty stomach. This medicine will help to fight the seminal debility caused by the sexual exertion created by over-masturbation. Also I would like to advise you to conduct your SEMEN ANALYSIS TEST. It will reveal the abnormalities in your semen if you really have any. If you find any abnormality in your semen analysis report then you should obviously consult me privately via Lybrate.
