Warning Signs of Mental Illness
The mind or the brain is the master computer, the site of our consciousness, thoughts and memories. We often tend to think of our mind as a separate entity, but the mind and the body are linked and just like our body, the mind too is susceptible to illnesses. The idea of mental illness makes us feel vulnerable and helpless and we dismiss the possibility of mental illness as something that “will not happen to me” or “is in my control”. But like all other illnesses, mental disorders too, are ultimately not in our control. More importantly, they are readily treatable with medications and therapy.
Mental illness refers to a wide range of mental health conditions/disorders that affect our mood, thinking and behavior. They include depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, eating disorders, alcohol/drugs abuse and many others. All of us feel sad, anxious, stressed and have occasional sleepless nights. So when does a mental health concern become a problem? When the signs and symptoms persist and affect our regular day-to-day activities, it’s probably time to seek help.
Awareness is the first step to treatment. Learning about the signs and symptoms will allow you to seek help early and get back to a healthy and happy life.
If several of the following symptoms are recurring, it is advisable to consult a mental health professional.
1. Withdrawal: Recent social withdrawal and lack of interest in others are a common sign that you may have a problem in hand.
2. Drop in functioning: There is a sudden unusual drop in functioning at school, work or other social activities such as withdrawing from sports, failing in school or difficulty in performing ordinary tasks.
3. The problem with thinking: You face complications with concentration, memory or rational thoughts and speech that are hard to explain.
4. Increased sensitivity: There is a heightened sensitivity to sights, sounds, smells or physical contact and a tendency to avoid stimulating situations.
5. Apathy: There is a loss of desire or initiative to participate in any social activity.
6. Feeling disconnected: You experience a vague feeling of detachment from yourself or your surrounding and a sense of unreality encircles you (paranoia or hallucinations).
7. Illogical thinking: You have an exaggerated belief about your personal powers to understand meanings or influence events. You suffer from irrational or magical thinking, typical of childhood in an adult.
8. Nervousness: You have a feeling of fear, you are skeptical of others or have a strong nervous feeling.
9. Sleep or appetite changes: You experience sleep disorders, significant tiredness and appetite changes and even decline in personal care.
10. Mood swings: There are rapid or dramatic shifts in feelings ranging from excessive anger; hostility or violence to suicidal thoughts.

From some weeks I'm feeling stress in my eyes and my head (frontlobe. Actually I've been using my cellphone and laptop all day from 3-4 months for study and other propose. May be this is one of the reason behind it! Now whenever I'm trying to reading something in my cellphone I'm feeling stress in my eyes, It's only stress.

I Have a suffer from mental tension and I have. Too much trouble in my head and I have lot off tension what can I do tell me and suggest me to do a new thing like meditation and. Yoga etc.?
I think I am in depression and somehow have turned to alchohol and cigarettes to counter it. I was a person who would refrain from indulging in things like alchohol. But I feel like a victim who has fallen in the vicious trap. What do I do? I socialise with a lot of people but I hardly have people in my life whom I can call friends. Perhaps that' s because of being cheated by many in the past. I am a very short tempered person and this bad quality of mine has brought a lot of attrocities in my life and has seeded up a lot of unwanted enemies in my life. I have had many druken brawls in the past and that has somehow psychologically affected me. People have started judging me for my alchoholic habbits and loud nature. I have suddenly started to become a quieter gut and that is somehow killing me from inside. There is this senior guy from my college. We sometimes work together. I find peace in his company and somehow I feel he cares for me like he would do for his youmger brother. But I am not sure if that is for real or just another illusion. The work pressure in my college has beening adding to all my problems because I am pursuing my degree in textile design and have lately realised that what I would love to do is graphics. Although this course was not a total waste as they had initially incorporate few elements of graphic designing in the earlier semesters but the last two semesters are more inclined toward textiles than graphics and hence I am finding no. Interest towards this. But again, I am just left to two more semesters to have a degree in hand so I am somehow thinking of completing my college and not dropping out as that would literally give a heart attack to my parents. I really understand the value of life. I want to get out of all my problems but somehow don' t know how. Hence I thought it was better to consult an expert rather than thinking about it all day and yet reaching nowhere.
My boyfriend cheated me 4 years ago. But I still cannot get over it. Day by day I am going into depression. I am in a new relationship now. But I still cannot forget my past. Can you please help me?

Parkinson's disease is a disorder of the brain that leads to tremors and difficulty with walking, movement and coordination. It most often develops in people age 50 or older and is one of the most common nervous system disorders of the elderly, according to the National Institutes of Health. There is no known cure.
The major 12-year study in Taiwan found that while diabetes increases the risk of Parkinson's 2.2 fold, including metformin in the therapy negates that risk.
“An exciting aspect of the finding is that metformin seems to be working to protect the brain against neurodegeneration which contributes to Parkinsonism. This means it may also be considered a relevant therapy for the prevention of dementia as well,” said Mark Wahlqvist, professor at the National Health Research Institutes in Taiwan and lead author of the study.
Metformin is the first-line medication for patients with type 2 diabetes. This affordable and commonly prescribed oral drug lowers blood glucose levels by decreasing the amount of glucose produced by the liver and enhancing insulin action. It's a type of biguanide drug used since the 1950s with a relatively safe record.
Researchers also found that use of sulfonylurea drugs, a common treatment for diabetes, further increases the risk by about 57 percent.
Sylfonylureas are a category of oral medications that stimulate the beta cells of the pancreas to release more insulin, according to the American Diabetes Association. Sylfonylurea drugs have been in use since the 1950s and include glipizide, glyburide, glimepiride and chlorpropamide.
Researchers theorize that metformin may re-set the regulation of energy metabolism in the brain cells. They suspect that exercise and diet may have the same energy regulating effect.
The study does not examine the mechanism behind metformin's protective effect on the brain. Researchers say that additional research is needed in this area.
Past research has shown that metformin reduces cardiovascular mortality and several cancers, including those of the large bowel, liver and pancreas.
