My wife is having OCD issue, please suggest any cure process without consulting a doctor as I am afraid that she will get into depression if we meet any psychiatrist.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Such stigma against psychiatrist's consultation adds, to her OCD and more depression due to suffering. Get over that and give her the help of a psychiatrist as soon as possible. It is very common that persons with OCD go into major depressive disorder. Both need medical and exposure and response prevention therapy for many months.

Hi, what type of anxiety you have. Is it generalised or specific to something. Thought stopping techniques really works for that. Deep breathing also works. Check in which place the anxiety comes, be in that situation for more repeated time. The anxiety reduces. Regards

My aunt is very sweet and loving. But on the contrary she gets violent even at 60 and hardly can control her anger. At times she gets very depressed about life and actually it is increasing day by day and she keeps ruminating over the past and recalling the past unpleasant memories. She feels alienated but it is not so. It is in her thought process. Everyone in the family loves n cares for her but she feels insecure. And one thing lastly she gets panicky about petty matters.

Your aunt is becoming old now and life becomes more difficult at this age. It becomes difficult for a person, to see that the body and mind is getting older. Older people have lesser patience. Because of this she might be feeling frustrated and sad. She might be having some health issues, which may be making her insecure and angry. Encourage her to talk about her past life experiences and when she is ruminating over it, validate her feelings. Try to understand the situations from her view point. All she needs is more love and respect. Give her responsibilities that she can shoulder. Involve her in family decisions. Make her feel important. Talk to her about "letting go" of things so that she will not keep worrying unnecessarily. Encourage her to pursue some hobbies or activities she could not undertake till now. Encourage her to have her own social circle. She needs to understand that if she becomes more positive and flexible about life, she can still enjoy life to the fullest and ultimately her anger will reduce.

Hello, it is best to consult a psychiatrist early in depression to prevent impairment in your personal and professional life. You could choose either medicines or counselling depending upon severity of illness. In the meanwhile, you can:- 1) aerobic exercise for 30 mins daily like walking or running 2) cultivate some hobby that gives you pleasure. 3) interact more with friends and family members. 4) music helps in lifting mood. 5) do yoga, pranayama, meditation or simple deep breathing techniques, whatever comes easy to you. If these things don't help much, don't shy in seeing a psychiatrist.

Dear Hamjad, You need to be assessed psychologically for diagnosis. You should consult a psychologist / psychiatrist for diagnosis. Alternatively you may consult a psychologist online too. Please do not try to diagnose self and ask for medicines. That may be dangerous. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. You are in love with your wife and she loves you. But she do not interact positively with your family members. These are initial stages of your married life. You have to be a little bit strict in some matters like your family matters. Take care.

My Sister is suffering from Bipolar disorder and we got to know when she was in her 20s. She is on medication since then, now she is 32. She does not want to do anything and wants everything in life with no effort. As obvious in this disorder high and low. Very difficult for all of us to handle her. We cant leave her alone for few days even, She does not even want to do any household work, no job, not even cook for herself if nobody there at home. I am looking for advice how to make her live alone being strong and some desire to do activities (household, job, exercise, physical or mental). Can anybody help me please?

She can be made very functional if she went for regular counseling. If she is left alone and if the mind is not occupied, she will internalize her emotions and thoughts and they will breed more problems. She should be put on a tight program of interesting and occupying activities throughout the day. Do not let her lie down or sleep during the day. Right now, until she becomes cooperative, she should not be given any option about these activities; and someone who can be strict with her must enforce discipline in her daily routine. She must never feel rejected by anyone during enforcement of any healthy demands.One important function is the daily exercise, which must be vigorous and for more than half an hour. If she can be sent to a low-level course to learn any craft and make her earn small amounts through her work it would be very stimulating. She must spend some time of the day socializing with people outside, ideally in a work-related situation. In therapy she must be taught to handle her feelings, particularly anger. If she is episode-free for three years the doctor will consider weaning her off of her medication. So you are looking at getting her back to normal if you do not neglect her and the disease. Due to the 12 years she has been in this passive condition it might take a longer time to get her normal. so be patient and put in the energy to bring her back to good and productive living.

Dear Lybtrate User, I think you need a companion. You need someone who will listen to you, will share your worries. You mentioned that you are living alone in Chennai. If possible, talk your husband everyday share your routine with him, ask him about his daily routine. Communicate with your son, understand his challenges and also share your thoughts with him. If this is not possible, talk to a Counsellor either personally or on phone. You are sad and lonely. You need to give an outlet to your chocked up emotions. Please talk to a Counsellor. Take care.

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/ weed, 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 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

I get hyper in short time and I do not concentrate in study and games. What should I do?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
I can give you study tips . 10 Study Tips to Improve Your Learning Study Tip 1: Underlining Underlining is one of the simplest and best known study tips. It’s easy to highlight the most significant parts of what you’re reading. One key sentence per paragraph and a few important phrases here and there. You can only retain a certain amount so it’s best to retain the most important information. Study Tip 2: Make your own note and taking notes is one of the most widespread study skills out there. Essentially the aim of note-taking is to summarise lectures or articles in your own words so you can easily remember the ideas. Study Tip 3: Mind mapping A good Mind map can save you many hours of study and further consolidate your knowledge for your exams. Mind Maps are an extremely versatile tools. They can be used for brainstorming, outlining essays or study topics and for general exam preparation, ExamTime offers the ability to create Mind Maps quickly and easily which makes them the ideal tool when it comes to exams. Study Tip 4: Flash cards:- Using these are a particularly effective method of learning when trying to assimilate different facts, dates, formulas or vocabulary. Subjects such as History, Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Geography or any language are made much easier if you incorporate Flashcards in to your study. Study Tip 5: Case Studies Sometimes it can be difficult to grasp the implications of some theories. This is where studying case studies can be a big help. Case studies can help you visualise a theory and place it in a more familiar and realistic context. This is especially useful in business or law subjects. Study Tip 6: Quizzes are an excellent way to review study notes in the weeks and days before an exam. Quizzes can show where your strengths and weaknesses are, so it allows you to focus your efforts more precisely. Moreover, if you share your Study Quiz with your classmates and test each other as much as possible you can discover even more details and areas you may have overlooked. So before any exam, make sure you create and share a bunch of different Quizzes with your Friends. Study Tip 7: Brainstorming This is another study technique that is ideal for studying with friends and/or classmates. Brainstorming is a great way to expand every possible idea out of any topic. Just get a bunch of friends together and shoot the breeze, there are no wrong answers when brainstorming – just talk and capture the ideas, you can review afterward. Study Tip 8: Mnemonic Rules Mnemonics are especially useful when memorising lists and sets. Mnemonics rules basically work by associating certain concepts with other concepts that are more familiar to us. There are many different ways to make mnemonics and these can be individual to the person. Study Tip 9: ORGANISE your study One of the most effective study skills is also one of the most often overlooked; this is organising your study. Creating a TIME TABLE gives you goals and a time in which to achieve them. Having a study timetable as you study is greatly motivational Study Tip 10: Drawing Many people find it easier to recall images rather than text that is why they are better able to memorise concepts if they associate them with pictures or drawings.

Frequent repetition is the best remedy for sharping your memory. Practice meditating for 10 mins a day and then gradually augment the duration. Do this every morning, evening and just before you retire.
