Hello Doctor, I am 24 and my gf is 23. I Love her a lot. I completed my graduation in 2015 and now I am working in MNC. We were in relationship from 2012 to 2015, we broke up in 2015. We did not talk for 2 years and stared talking again since a year. Before we were still the core but now my problem is that some times she says I like to marry you some times she says I don't like to marry you and I don't like you because she don't want her parents feel bad. So I asked her final decision about the marriage and she says she need 2 years of time and no commitment towards marriage and also she says you can marry other girl if I like as she don't have any problem if I marry. I am unable to understand whether she loves me or she just want to spend time with me. Can you please help me as I am unable to take any decision. It is creating stress now. Can you please guide me in correct way so that I can make a decision in my life.

Uncertainty can be frustrating and it is doubly so when it colored with emotions! It must be an everyday struggle to try to understand what you mean to her or where you stand in her life. Once you make a firm decision it will be easy for you to focus on other things in your life. Please seek an experts help to guide you through this and I am sure you will soon be out of this situation. All the best!

Dear Farook, Suicidal ideas are common symptom of bipolar illness. You have had similar ideas earlier also. It happens in depressive phase of bipolar illness. That phase goes away with or without treatment after few days. It is just a passing cloud. It is due to biochemical changes in your brain. It can be treated well with mood stabilisers for long term. Lithium carbonate is a good drug in proper blood level of 0.8-1.2 mE/l. There are other effective mood stabilisers also. In the meanwhile, inform your family and friends about your suffering so that they can detect early the relapse of depression in you and take appropriate care.They make take a psychiatric consultation also.

You 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. Episodes of depression are common. 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.

One more question sir. I have anxiety troubles in crowd or any place. Due to that I am not able to concentrate fully in my class. That makes me overthink about myself and gives an upset stomach. I have also been an ocd. Its about 2-3 years. I am so troubled due to that.

Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience. OCD is also based on fear and so if you resolve the fear in therapy, you could easily come out of this too.

I was a drunkard, now slowly reduced consumption of alcohol. I was having piles complaint, but somehow managed with some homeo medicine. I am now in my sixties. Fortunately not having sugar, bp etc. But one of colleague got married and having a male child aged 6, running 34 years of age is addict to alcohol. How can I be helpful him?

The proof is in the pudding. Show him how much it has affected your life and that you can help him in this situation. You must, however, give up liquor completely to really feel safe that you are out of your own addiction. In fact your friend may just turn around and tell you exactly that. But I really like your intention and it is bound to have an effect, if your addiction was very severe and you have managed to reduce it to this extent. So do offer all the support and be there for him to see him through. Take him for de-addiction either to a hospital or rehabilitation center and then he will find it easier. He needs to avoid the company of his drinking friends, places, occasions, and events to help him in the first 21 days of his abstinence. He must seek professional help and stay with the therapy until he is out of it completely. That might take up to 3 years to be absolutely sure. Will you stand by him until then? super.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Since 15 years you are suffering. Have you taken any treatment so far from any psychiatrist? If not consult a psychiatrist not only for treatment, but also for a better diagnosis. No coordination, can't recognize people, not able to walk, can not lift head from pillow, etc may not be due to depression alone. I don't know your age. In older persons these symptoms may be due to neurological or hormonal disorder. Depression may be added due to long duration of 15 years.

Hi lybrate-user, you have to stop caring about what people feel about you. Im sure there are people who like you even love you and are there in need of help. Do not dwell on negative and ignore the positive things in life. There are things bigger than outward beauty, the real people will like you for your inner self not brightness on your face. We all are flawed in some or the other way but if we do not accept ourselves and do self love how can we expect love from others? we need to respect ourselves to gain respect of others. You should be upset or stressed as you are already taking treatment and it will take time. If it happens good even if it doesn't you should not feel less about yourself. Concentrate on work and building up a career be surrounded with positive people and you will start counting your blessings soon.
