Dear user. Being possessive on your girl friend is the problem. She is an individual with distinct personality and she do have her own rights and behaviors. Let her behave according to her rights and you should be within your rights. I suggest online counseling for you. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Dear, welcome to lybrate. Memory and mind power depends mainly on three aspects. Understanding, storage and recollection. To understand what you are studying, you must be able to be attentive or concentrate. Concentration is possible when you are interested in that subject. Creative way of learning can help you concentrate and understand easily. When you are able to understand and concentrate, it is stored within your brain. If you read more and more it will be store in long term memory. Third part is retrieval. Whenever you want to retrive what you learned and stored, your brain gets the request, searches the database and retrieves the information for you. The retrieval may prove to be difficult if you are anxious, stressed, worried or tired physically or mentally. Retrieval is more easy when you are relaxed and healthy. Brain needs nutrients to keep itself sharp. Fruits, vegetables and dry fruits provide much needed nutrients for your brain. Include at least one fruit in your daily diet. Physical exercises, entertainment, hobbies, relaxation, memory games like sudoku etc help keep your memory sharp and active. You may consult a psychologist for advice, counseling and therapy. Take care.

If depression is the main problem you should continue to be under the care of a psychiatrist regularly. Apart from medication you should have healthy life style, regular exercise like walking, relaxing techniques like deep breathing, pranayaam, etc and counselling by psychologist to get at the root of problem

You must meet with a counselor to deal with the regression you experience, especially when you are angry. This is an indication that there is a fixation with anger due to some unresolved childhood experience. When this is resolved you will experience a lot of relief even in areas that you do not know about as yet. All feelings must be expressed appropriately every time. The over thinking is a right brain function that you resort to when in distress.

Can bipolar depression be cured, if not how is the balance between a high and low phase maintained?

Psychiatrist, Faridabad
Can bipolar depression be cured, if not how is the balance between a high and low phase maintained?
Respected lybrate-user Ma'am. Bipolar disorder can not be cured. We use mood stabilizer to to prevent high and low phase and maintain a stable phase. Mood stabilizer can be stopped after 3 to 5 years if there is no episode during these years. All thing need to be under strict psychiatric supervision. All d best!

Hi doctor, I have epilpsy problem and undergoing medication (taking epilex crono 300mg daily) just want to know for any permanent solution and root cause of this and preventive steps to be taken. Thank you in advance.

MBBS, MD - Medicine, DM - Neurology
Neurologist, Ghaziabad
First you should get evaluated for the cause of epilepsy. It will require investigation like mri brain (with epilepsy protocol) and eeg. You may require further investigation based upon the results of above. Minimum dose of medication you are taking depends upon the weight of patient. If you are a adult, this does is less for you. Its better to consult a neurologist for proper management and treatment.
