I just don't enjoy the things I used to, and I don't feel much like visiting friends or family. Is this part of aging?

Dear lybrate-user, definitely this is not part of ageing. You are just 19 and you cannot have the feelings of ageing now. I think you are disappointed, frustrated, irritated. Disappointment is an epitome in life which removes the interest from a person. Don't worry. Once you cross the teen age period, your problem will be solved. You may consult a psychologist for counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, anger on triffles may be associated with behaviour disorder and may be due to depression. There is good treatment in homeopathy. Just consult any good homeopathic physician there near you. Thanks.

To get a better recall, you need to learn and register things in a better way. In other words, you need to increase your concentration first. Learn to meditate and focus on things. There are some memory improving techniques such as learn the things by making chunks. Associate the things with your personal experiences. It is called mnemonic devices.

I hav some fear in attending interviews or taliking to others , recently i attend one interview in that interview my hands and legs are shivering , can you please tell me how to overcome these

Masters in counseling psychology, Counseling psychologist, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapist
Psychologist, Mumbai
The fear is similar to what we cal stage fright. Fear of facing people or an audience. It is common and many people go through it, but they can also overcome it. Its a fear of making a mistake or making a fool of yourself in front of an audience. Which makes you hyper alert and panicky. Try some breathing exercises which can relax you just before going for an interview. Understand that everyone makes a mistake, and you should not be ashamed of it. Have self confidence and be prepared to make mistakes. Tell yourself it is fine to make a mistake and your anxiety will be fine. You will be better able to cope with it. Understand that if you do a mistake its not the end of the world.

Let your mind relax. Think about someone you feel comfortable talking with. Start talking softly. Visualize thoughts and words to stop stammering. Slow down your speed of speaking. Do relaxation and breathing exercises. Consult speech pathologist.

Sir I am suffering from mental anxiety I have taken small tablets and beta cop 20 or 40 but it was stopped due to some personal reasons plzz tell some house treatment for mental anxiety because my whole body suffers because of anxiety.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You are having anxiety attacks and need to meet with a counselor immediately. You must continue with the counseling to develop coping mechanisms to face the daily challenges of life. Because you are not handling fear well, you tend to over-react to normal fear with abnormal anxiety attacks. About the issue itself: do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? you can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Anyway, you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately, can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted upon now. Accordingly, you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (i suggest you join the toastmasters club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too, though not to this extent! there are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: awareness, intimacy and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of anxiousness to disappear from your life for good.

I lost my somebody close last year so I am very depressed and lost my strongness please help me.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone. You can contact me for further help, if required.

We talk about love at drop of a hat, but one should realize that both the concerned persons are basically concerned about there mutual interest. In your case may be her prioritized interests are not overlapping with yours. And there is nothing anyone can do about it. We believe what we want to believe. Not necessarily what is true. She is the ideal match, I may not be able to live without her etc etc, you simple ignore the bitter past and project future on the pleasant history. No one knows the outcome of marriage, in case you would have got married, but may be you like to believe that it would have been ideal. Fixity in a life which is a flux, is non-living, you may revisit your fixity in believing hat you do. Take a counseling session if needed. River never gets halted by rocks, it either makes a way through it or diverts but it keeps on flowing all the time.

Dear lybrate user. Nicotine is addictive and other chemicals from the smoke could cause cancer and respiratory problems. Therefore there is no safe smoking. Even one cigarette once in a week destroys some cells in your lungs and could form gangrene and then cancer. Quit smoking. Take care.

I have severe anxiety issues .i get weird thoughts every time I go through a tough situation. Please help.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. You might feel anxious when faced with a problem at work, before taking a test, or making an important decision. But anxiety disorders involve more than temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the anxiety does not go away and can get worse over time. Restlessness or feeling wound-up or on edge being easily fatigued difficulty concentrating or having their minds go blank irritability muscle tension difficulty controlling the worry sleep problems (difficulty falling or staying asleep or restless, unsatisfying sleep) these are some of the symptoms. So consult a psychiatrist and get your anxiety treated.

Dear Akshay, You need psychiatric help. Please consult for a proper diagnosis and treatment. Mostly depression occurs along with insomnia and anxiety. Panic attacks comes and goes like a passing cloud. Diurnal variation is one of the feature of a depressive disorder. That is why you are normal in the evenings.

Better to do weekly once of masturabation. Smoking is always not good. Better to stop smoking. Masturbation is a healthy habit. But it is not good repeatedly. Weekly once it is normal status. Masturabtion is not cause for low weight. So do not think too much about it. Take very good food. Take rest. Sleep well. Develop a very good friendly circle. Be share and be friendly with others. Do not be alone. Feel always comfortable. Be think in positive manner. Do not develop negative thinking. Be positive and be friendly. Ok best of luck.

Paranoid Personality Disorder: Signs, Causes and Treatment

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Pune
Paranoid Personality Disorder: Signs, Causes and Treatment

There are a number of mental disorders and conditions that may affect the psyche of a person, due to various reasons including hormonal changes, environmental factors and even genetic conditions. Paranoid Personality Disorder is one such condition that gives rise to eccentric behavioral patterns. This may make the patient seem odd or even strange to others. Here are the signs, causes and various forms of treatment available for this condition.

Symptoms and Signs

Most of the patients suffering from this disorder are completely convinced that there is nothing wrong with their behavior and everyone around them are conniving against them with ulterior motives of bringing them down. This will make them highly suspicious individuals with intense trust issues. They also become angry and violent very soon and usually do not have a justified reason for such temper tantrums. These patients will also be detached and isolated socially, with hardly any friends and relationships. They will also have trouble seeing their own problems and flaws, which can keep them from having meaningful relationships.


The cause of this disorder is not known as yet. There is much ongoing research in this field. It is widely believed that this disorder is born due to a combination of biological factors and other environmental factors that may have conditioned the brain in a negative manner. Chemical and hormonal imbalances are known to be at the core of many such disorders. Also, it may be seen in people who come from a family of Schizophrenic patients. Trauma experienced during one's childhood can also lead to the onset of this disorder.


One of the most effective forms of treatment for this disorder includes therapy. Talk therapy or CBT which is also known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a form of discussion based therapy that can help the patient in talking about his or her feelings. These are then analysed in a clinical setting with the intervention of a trained psychiatrist or psychologist who will help the patient in pointing out abnormal behavior. This kind of therapy also helps in reaching the root cause of the issue that may have caused this condition in the first place. By doing so, there is a better chance of treating this cause and thus changing the attitude of the patient. This will help in steering the patient towards more normal behavior in the long run. This kind of therapy will have to take place over a long period of time before the results begin to show up in the day to day living and functioning of the patient. Anti-depressants and anti psychotics may also be prescribed.
