Hi doctor,I am suffering from some sort of mental disturbance from last one year after my girlfriend left me saying that she is too busy with her work and just don't want me anymore, I was shocked and surprised by her sudden change, she accepted that it was her fault and I had been always good with her, but her way of talking changed and I have not been able to deal with it. What should I do?

You should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were you disappointed in the near past? Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care.

Dear , the best method to improve your concentration, memory power and recollection etc is to use your brain creatively again and again. Doing number puzzles, creative hobies like painting, games like chess etc can sharpen your brain and improve concentration. Exercise plays an important part in sharpening the brain and in many aspects of memory. Nutritious food including green vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals and pulses are beneficial. Alcohol, nicotine, drugs, coffee, red meat etc are not that good for sharpening brain and memory power. Being happy and cheerful also contributes positively. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. Take care.

I am loosing my concentrations in my work. In night I am not getting good sleep. Help me. Bring out from the problem.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

This is not a good sign for you. It means that the activities on daily basis which you are suppose to do are not as per your liking or you are not capable of doing them. The best thing you can do is accept what your situation is, feel confident that you can make it better, start looking for solutions to the problems and start acting on the solutions. The best we can do is effort. Hard-work always pays, it might seem to you at stages that everything is going out of control but relax, thinking negative will not help. If the point of concern is a female or disappointment in love then you are too young right now to get your self messed up in such situations. Do not let emotions dominate your brains. If the point of concern is education and career, then just do not keep on expecting and start hardworking, you will get returns later on the right time. 1. Exercise daily 2. Have almonds raisins, milk etc 3. Add fruits and salads in diet hope you a speedy recovery.

Dear lybrate user if you are getting suicidal thoughts immediately consult a psychologist, it seems you need regular therapy sessions. Please reflect upon the causes of such feelings. Sometimes when our daily routine gets monotonous we do get these feelings. Its important to identify the causes so that we will work upon those reasons and remove them immediately from your life. Try to make a thought journal and when you get negative thoughts you can write in it or share with some loved one.

Why Does Depression Make Us Feel Guilt or Shame?

M.Phil in Clinical Psychology, Ph.D. Psychology
Psychologist, Hubli-Dharwad
Why Does Depression Make Us Feel Guilt or Shame?

In order to answer this question, it is important that we first discuss what depression is. Feeling sad, lonely or low is very common. So how can we point out which is depression and which is sadness? Well, sadness is a fleeting feeling and is the most normal reaction to loss or life’s struggle. Depression, on the other hand, is pretty permanent (may be not permanent, but it may last really really long or may occur very frequently, if not consulted with a professional). It is so overwhelming and inexplicable that these mental feelings start involving physical symptoms as well. Depression can keep an individual from leading a normal and an active life.

Depression, if not treated, may take an even worse form and might possibly end at suicide. Clinically, certain symptoms that occur persistently might point towards depression.

  1. Inability to concentrate
  2. Fatigue
  3. Guilt and shame
  4. Insomnia
  5. Irritability
  6. Hopelessness
  7. Eating disorders
  8. Loss of interest in previously enjoyable activities
  9. Persistent headaches, pains, aches, digestive problems
  10. Empty feeling
  11. Suicidal thoughts

Here comes the part about guilt and shame. One of the very common symptoms of depression is feeling of unnecessary guilt or shame. Guilt is a feeling of remorse or regret for violating an internal value. Shame is an overall feeling of self contempt. While both these are pretty normal feelings for a normal individual, for depressed individuals, these feelings get magnified to unimaginable extents.

How are these manifested?

  1. Constantly apologising for things one hasn’t done
  2. Blaming themselves for everything
  3. Thinking they don’t deserve happiness
  4. Feeling inferior or unworthy
  5. Feeling of being a burden

The next plausible question is why does this happen?

These feelings generally tend to go back to childhood. People who have faced childhood traumas or have been physically, emotionally or sexually abused are more prone to feelings of depressive guilt or shame. In the young age, they do not really have proper understanding of the situation and hence they end up blaming themselves. During adulthood, they keep believing the same, thus causing intense feelings of guilt and shame. A lot of counselling can bring such individuals to the understanding that whatever happened to them as children was never their fault.

Also, it has been researched that the region in the human brain associated with shame and guilt is unusually active in depressed individuals. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

Hi Am sorry to hear your situation. Can understand is quite nerve wrecking n embarrassing to say the least. My dear. Every cloud has a silver lining n so has urs .as you get into trouble only when you face difficult situations. Yes you have stammering which only surfaces in anxiety provoking situations as described by u. Why not control the anxiety first. Naa rahega baans .na bajegi baansuri .if you get what I mean. Pls Google rcpsych social anxiety to know more about your condition n then see a good Psychiatrist. Yes speech therapy n public speaking courses will definitely help you but in my view it is also important to work at the root of your problem. Hope this helps. Rgds.

Body Dysmorphic Disorder

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Body Dysmorphic Disorder

Body dysmorphic disorder is a type of psychiatric disorder. It is when you cannot think about one or more defects or flaws in your appearance. These flaws are usually very minor and sometimes even unnoticeable.  This is actually a much more serious disorder than many other people may think. This is because people with body dysmorphic disease may avoid many situations and also suffer from severe anxiety or shame. Here is everything you need to know about body dysmorphic disease.

Causes
Just like other psychiatric disorders, there is no known cause of body dysmorphic disease. However, there are a lot of factors, which increases your risk of developing it which include:

1. Brain disorders: Many people with abnormal brain chemistry disorders suffer from body dysmorphic disease. 
2. Genes: People whose blood relatives have this disease or have obsessive compulsive disorder are more likely to develop this disorder as well. 
3. Environment: Cultural and social influences are a major cause of body dysmorphic disorder as well.

Symptoms
There are, however a lot of symptoms of body dysmorphic disorder, most of which are psychological in nature. They include: 

1. Having a preoccupation with a flaw in the body, which is very minor or perhaps even unnoticeable.
2. Beliefs that people are mocking you in relation to your flaw.
3. Being a perfectionist

It is also worth noting that this obsession can affect any part of the body and can also include several parts of the body or different parts of the body at different times. Here are the possible treatments of body dysmorphic disorder.

Treatments
There are a variety of treatments, which a patient can opt for and a variety of methods of curing the problem. Here are the most common.
1.   Cognitive behavioral therapy: This is when a therapist tries to stop you from thinking about the flaw that you have been focusing on way too much. 
2.   SSRI: SSRI stands for Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors. They are given in cases, where body dysmorphic disorder is caused by problems related to the brain chemical serotonin. 
3.   Hospitalization: This is a severe measure, but may need to be taken if you are in danger of harming somebody or you cannot perform daily activities.

You should have first appreciated his frankness and that he wants out of this addiction. This is a very good starting point. I also must take this opportunity to mention that institutions, especially educational ones, must invite experts on these topics to educate both staff and students so that both prevention and cure can be attempted at the first point of contact, at the institutional level. You did right to guide him to the counselor and I hope that person was able to help him. Even so it is always better for you to know yourself what to do to start with. Please remember that you cannot be an expert but at least you could do the correct thing when someone reaches out to you. The most important thing is to acknowledge the honesty and then guide the person to the right help. In any addiction there is a huge component of obsession. That is the individual will think about sex very often until it leads to the compulsion i. E. There will be a strong tendency to want to act on that obsession. It will feed into an impulse. Immediate measures would be to have him restrict his access to the net, dvds and magazines. He must also occupy his mind with thoughts other than sex, by engaging him in activities of interest, being in groups, exercising, and finding other sources of entertainment. He should also be put on a schedule of tight activities. He must be taught to respect a contract to call you whenever he is tempted and you must help him out at that time to overcome the impulse. A good sex education program will help him respect sex and the opposite gender, and kill the curiosity and experimental drive. Guiding him towards a relationship with the opposite sex will also lighten the burden of seeing girls in a rather telescopic view and making them objects of love. He will need the support of whomever it is possible to get involved without compromising on confidentiality. It might take some time for him to come out of it, especially if he is into late adolescence when the hormones at its highest.
