It is not related to madness or unsound mind. Everyone have two dimensional thoughts. One is good and another is bad. No need of shy it is your interest. Do not feel it is wrong. You feel insecure and inferiority complex. When we are not perfect we satisfy in dreams. It is common thing. Hanuman chalisa reading it is a very good habit. Absentmindness it is common. Concentrate on your work. Relax yourself. Do not be confused each and every aspect. Do not think too much about past incidents. Feel always happy. It will give very good motivation. Do sincere work each movement of the life feel always confident. Do not feel it is my mistake and etc. Be share all your personal feelings with your friends and family members. Be happy all time. Spend for your relaxation. Go movies and temples. Visit new places. Enjoy every movement of life. You are always normal. Your thoughts are normal. It is common factors. Ok all the best.

I have been having this constant recurring negative thoughts since couple of months. I cannot focus at anything. I have developed a habit of being at comfort zone. Likewise my interactive skills are vastly deteriorating and my mind goes blank while talking with people. I am even afraid to do basic things like going out for shopping, utility bill payment, etc. I also feel that someone is watching. Nd if someone laughs at their own matter I feel like they are laughing at me. Last year I was diagnosed with chronic depression and went through cbt and felt okay for around 4-5 months but all of a sudden I started having panic attacks and so on as I described above. Please tell me am I going mad?

Hello, at 20 years of age, it is very natural to feel tensed about future and feel insecure. Here it appears you are procrastinating over some thing in the past. Remember, past is past. And unless you keep digging it out, it can not be brought back. May be you have done something wrong and you fear it may affect your present and future? in that case, it is best to talk it out with someone. A trusted friend or a parent, tell them what is wrong and they might be able to be your support system if the problems strike.

My son is suffering from schizophrenia since last 10 years . Please suggest permanent remedy.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

There is no permanent remedy for schizophrenia but he could be taught a lot of skills to remain functional. This is a long-term treatment and he will probably remain on medication all through his life, he must still persevere. Schizophrenia is a very complex and difficult disease to treat, even with medication. All psychotropic medicines have side-effects: that is inescapable. But I suspect that you are depending entirely on medication when in reality he needs to combine it with counseling or therapy. In therapy, he will learn a lot of coping mechanisms and techniques to remain functional and lead a close-to-normal life. He will also learn about emotions and how they can impact his condition adversely. Expressing emotions in an appropriate manner will equip him for life. Talking and sharing about the many disturbing thoughts and learning to understand himself and moderate his responses will go a long way towards normalizing and training his mind. Exercise must be a regular part of his life for various reasons. Put him on a productive and strict schedule. The idle mind is the devil's workshop for sure, and more so for a schizophrenic. Because it is a psychotic condition he needs to be made to relate to reality often by confronting his distortion of his environment. He may be given to delusions, hallucinations and disordered thinking and speech. He may be emotionally unresponsive, suffering from social withdrawal, extreme apathy, and lack of initiative and drive. If he is allowed to go internal he can strongly relate to his distortions and in fact believe in them to be true. His cooperation with the rehabilitation and medical intervention is often not as desirable as it should be. In which case someone has to monitor him constantly and enforce some compliance. He must be kept functional to get him to be aware of his surroundings and build on a steady and trusting relationship with at least one member of the community. He will be difficult to handle, and he himself will not find it easy to comply with therapeutic expectations. With someone strong and firm he could be made to follow a tight schedule and do many activities and exercises to prevent him from succumbing to this illness.

You should consult a nutritionist for a detailed program. However here are some basic tips: Modify your diet: increase the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables, salads and reduce processed foods. Weight loss works best when you focus on diet and exercise. If you do not get time to exercise, then do whatever you can in the time you have. For eg: take the stairs instead of lift, travel short distances by walking, park your vehicle away from your destination so you have to walk the rest of the distance, etc. Try some relaxation techniques like deep breathing, meditation and yoga; these will help to reduce your stress. Ensure you are getting adequate sleep at night. Spend time with family or friends and confide in those whom you are comfortable. Indulge in any activities or hobbies that you like.

Hi, in the theatrical activities you are with the people who are known to you but in other situations you r with the group of unknown people. So basically your fear is for unknown people. Try systematic desensitization. In this you first take your friend or relative with you on a bus ride or the place where you fear to go alone. Continue this for some days. After few days you go alone on the same bus route or same places. Continue this again for some days then go to some new but less crowded place or new bus route. This exercise will help you. During this exercise when ever you feel scared or tensed close your eyes and take deep breaths. Keep a water bottle with you and take few sips at regular intervals. You can put some music on your earphones too during this exercise when you are going alone. I believe this exercise will remove your fobia for unknown people and places.

Dear lybrate-user, some of your symptoms may be side effect of stalopam and some are due to your major depressive disorder. Stalopam needs 2-3 weeks to start its antidepressant action. Side effects come earlier. Please discuss with your psychiatrist. He/she may change the medicine or reduce dose or give another medicine for your symptoms - it might be flu itself added to your major depressive disorder. If you can tolerate don't stop stalopam and consult your psychiatrist.

My husband is very short tempered. He gets angry on very small small things. We did love marriage 2 years back and have a 1 year old daughter. Before marriage he was very good to me but after marriage he suddenly got changed. He abuses me, scolds me, even sometimes got angry with our child. When he talks with his friends he seems very happy. He doesn't talk to me, not even replied to my questions. What should I do? I am really upset and depressed.

You need to sit down and discuss your problem with your husband. Try to focus on the issues rather than the behavior. Engage with him when he is calm. Don't try to react when he is angry. Don't compare the days of courtship to your current days. Don't involve third person in the family to solve your problem at the beginning. Try to engage yourself in activities other than child care and house hold activities which will give you happiness.

I am 22 year male recently analysed off having dyslexia and adhd which is affecting my studies and when inquired about how to help myself got a reply that an adult of this age cannot be helped what can I do about this.

It is difficult to treat adhd at any time in life, period. So, considering advanced ages, it makes it tougher because the behaviors are all set in and reinforced. However, do not lose hope: there is nothing that is impossible in life except that we have not yet discovered the solution. Every effort is worth it and you should never be in want for not having tried. I also believe that something done is better than nothing done, even if it is wrong: passivity is criminal. You need to combine medication and therapy for something effective to emerge for you. There are three areas of focus in therapy that needs serious work: concentration, hyperactivity, and impulse control. You will need to put yourself on a strict time-structure with planned activities which have reasonable and reachable goals. These must be monitored and assessed regularly to give you an idea of progress. There are concentration exercises in yoga, and the ear and eye exercise, that will benefit you a lot. Meditation will be tremendously useful to moderate your responses and to develop focus and good self-control. Emotional therapy will play a significant role to alleviate the impulsive behavior to a large extent. If all this is done in a social context i. E. In groups or by mixing with other people, you will gain tremendously. You need to be cooperative at all times. Your diet could do with less carbohydrates and a good bit of fiber. It is best to avoid high-energy foods. Vigorous exercise of at least 30 minutes a day will expunge the high energy levels. The treatment is long term and arduous but it is worth putting in this effort for a reasonable outcome. Regarding the dyslexia there are reading exercises by using index cards that will help you with those words that you particularly read wrong. Some teachers who specialize in treating this disorder have equipment and methods that employ the four avenues of word-learning: visual, audio, kinesthetic and tactile. They employ and associate letter and word sounds i. E. From the phonics with the phonemes.

Yes, stress will induce the vagus nerve which increases the heart rate, acidity and adrenalin secretion. To avoid this do regular exercise and meditation. Walking alone is also a kind of meditation and avoid using music while you walk.

Why my husband feel totally drain out by 6 pm in the evening everyday. He is 56 years old man.
Dear, the reason could be stress. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the fight-or-flight response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as? acute stress? can be exciting? it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or chronic stress? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.
