Being sad shows as if he is not sad but deep inside he feels alone. He asks to sit alone. He gets frequent mood swings. He gets irritated easily. Is he suffering from smiling depression? Should we allow him to sit alone & sad & cry?

He seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms

There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. They have love-hate relationship with close ones.

Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life.

People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide.

Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Memory depends on understanding, retention and recollection. To recollect you need to retain whatever you understand. To retain, you need to understand. To understand you need to find creative reading techniques. Creativity in reading and problem solving. Every fruit, vegetable and pulse and nuts can help you enhance your memory. I suggest online educational counselling. Take care.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are 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. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Actually I have problem with my voice. I can not speck louder in some circumstances. And I am not okay with my voice.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
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 lybrate-user, Its you and only you who can change the habit and lifestyle and for this you need to take necessary actions. It is important to get yourself busy in productive things and make a schedule to organize your life better. Apart from that I would like you to practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Consult me for therapy.

You need to visit a psychiatrist. After 1 or 2 sessions the psychiatrist can roughly predict the time for recovery and duration of treatment. All the best.

I am 25 year old male. Suffering from OCD.In medicine I have to take 80 mg fluoxetine, 1 mg Risperidone, 100 mg Sertraline. I feel normal but feeling a lot drowsy in day .i have to take 250 mg armodafinil and then I can do my daily work easily. My Psychiatrist say you have addiction of armodafinil. Such high doses not required for removing fatigue. If medicine remains same, I want to know my dependence on armodafinil increases, decreases or remains same. I am not abusing the drug only using it for removing drowsiness in day time.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Ritesh, You have improved with OCD. Then why don't you reduce and stop Risperidone? With only 80 mg fluoxetine and sertraline, you may be still okey. Both of them are not sedative. Both can be taken in the morning itself, if you feel like. Armodafinil is not routinely prescribed for OCD. So you need not take it. You are using it for removing drowsiness.Why don't you try some non pharmacological method to remove drowsiness? If you still crave for armodafinil and increase the dose(already on 250 mg), probably you need to think about it seriously.

Can you give the details about the medications you are taking now? also get your thyroid and sugar profile checked and if possible get an ecg done. The condition is controllable most of the times and sometimes fully curable. For further advice consult me privately as I need to ask you some personal questions.

There are methods by which you can gain some height. 1. Follow these exercises regularly and you get the goal of height gain: * first stand straight bare foot on floor, then raise your arms upwards then raise your heels of foot with breathing in, try to stand on heels for 10-12 seconds and slowlylower down your heels back on the floor and breath outthe air. Repeat this exercise 5-8 times in morning. *sit on the floor, stretch you legs together so that both foot touch each other. Now raise your arms upwards together with back straight, now move your hands towardstoes of feet and touch them. Your forehead touching your knees. Slowly revert back the arms and move back arms in normal position. Repeat this exercise 2-4 times daily. * firststand bare foot on flat surface, now move your heels upwards and raise your arms up. Start walk on the front part of feet with heels upwards. Walkatleast 8-10 steps. Repeat this exercise for 2-3 times in a day. 2. Take 300 ml of rich cream milk, 200 gm of cheese and 2-3 eggs regularly. It will definitely give boost to your bone growth. 3.

You have to be very practical and rational. May be your friend needed some some psychological help but unfortunately could not take proper treatment. So please do not be worry about that incident. Please focus on being healthy by following healthy lifestyle. Relax you mind by doing Yoga or any exercise or follow any hobby which calms your mind and makes you feel good. You can also do some social service which will make you feel better. Helping others always benefits you and makes you a better person.
