I have Major Depression since last 20 years. I was on fluoxetine 20 mg to 60 mg for almost 20 years and 1 year back I switched to 200 mg Lamictal at night and 6 months back Paroxetine CR 50 mg at Lunch in place of fluoxetine. The problem is even though there is some improvement in mood after introduction of paroxetine I am often facing problem of abscess with pus at some part or other of the body causing lot of pain and discomfort. I never had this problem with fluoxetine and also with Lamictal. Can it be because of Paroxetine? Pls advise me another good SSRI in place of Praxotine with least side effects. Regards

My mother is suffering from schizophrenia for a long time (more than 15 yrs). initially she started taking medicine but after 1 years she stopped taking medicine. Now she is 61 years old and I have started treatment again since nov 2016. Now she is well enough but still she have some illusions which are strong. My question is - it is possible she will be cured and live like before.

Hi, I am Dr Guruprasad and I am a counselling Psychologist. I am an experitise in cognitive behavioural therapy and acceptance commitment therapy and this is what I practice.
So here I am going to talk something about Motivation. A lot of time we wait that something has to motivate us so that we can take an action. But the science and research shows completely different things. We have certain things in our mind that some conditions have to be met so that we do or perform certain actions. A lot of people are waiting that they should get motivated for certain things and only then they are going to take certain actions. But this is not true. THis is not how motivation works. Motivation works on completely different levels. You need to take certain actions first so that you can be motivated. So, rather than waiting for some motivation to take, take an action earlier and automatically motivation will follow.
Many times the client suffer with the exercises or the way they are doing in life for certain types of health behaviours like diet. People like this wait for the motivation to come. They read lot of stuff and try to feel motivated, they meet lot of people, attend motivational seminars etc, but this actually does not work. What I suggest these clients is that, rather than waiting for the motivation to come, they should take an actions.
There are different types of choice points which a client and a person selects in his life. For example, if I have to go and exercise on a tredmill and I make the choice whether I have to go to the gym or not go to gym, then most probably a client will end up not going to the gym. So, the choice point really matters. At what point, at what locations are you selecting your actions.
Many times I tell my clients that even if you do not want to exercise that day but the location of the choice should not be the bed but rather the gym or outside of your house. So, go out of the house and then choose whether you want to go for exercise or you do not want to go for exercise or just go and touch the tred mill. So what happens is, ehen a client touch the tredmill then most of the time he ends up doing an exercise.
So, rather than waiting for the motivation to come, take the action and then decide what you want to do. So, we call this type of psychology Motorventional skills and Not Motivational skills.
Motorventional skills is when you take an action and then decide whether you really want to perform that action. By doing this, most of teh clients end up performing the actions.
So, I hope this tip is very intresting and you will try in your life rather than waiting for the motivation to come.
Also, what matters is the location where you are. Select the right location where you are trying to make the decision. Most of the time we completely decide the things at wrong locations.
