I recently married to a girl and our life was going well until I found she had past relationships. Now I am not able to handle this situation and getting panic attacks though I know she loves me equally and that was just her past. I am getting panic attacks sometimes and dying is also a thought that crosses my mind but I don't want to die. I am not able to share this with anyone and living in hope that everything will fall into​ place. So, I just want to know whether I need to consult any doctor as this event occurred 4 days back only.

Dear lybrate-user, I just went thruogh your problem, I am not going to recommend medicines in your case, you need psychotherapy & counseling. You know all the reality and the world but your thoughts get you tense. You can releav yourself from those thoughts but you will still be needing help from a good psychologist who help you out to overcome these thoughts, you can consult with me in private.

I am getting married with my 11 years long time boyfriend but after hearing the good news I am not that happy which I had dreamt of. Is it because of anxiety or is there any serious issue?

It is normal to have these feelings of equivocality when we are committing ourselves in a long term relationship. Being in courtship has lesser level of commitment than marriage. Don't worry about this. This is normal.

Dear, you should be able to distinguish between disappointment and depression. Disappointment also brings on symptoms identical to depression but they are short lived. Were you disappointed in the near past? are you sure you are having depression disorder? have you been diagnosed by a clinical psychologist / psychiatrist? please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. I should know many things. Psychotherapy techniques should help you. Take care.

No stick to one doctor. Medicines take atleast 4-6 weeks to come in full action may be more in severe depression, but it will certainly work. Also, never stop medication on your own or the patient will relapse with even more intensity of symptoms. Have faith. Its not like headache you have one pill and get over the ache, this will take time just like it took time to build up.

I had a nice sniff of Vick inhaler which had a effect on the alcohol I had . Is it possible.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Yes. Vicks inhaler fumes, if inhaled will provide a good elatedness for those people who are already on the influence of alcohol. There are no scientific provings to second the phenomenon yet. I suggest not to use such a method yet. Take care.

How can improve my memory. I forget something sometimes that's very dangerous situation. Please suggest me.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Improving memory is a multifactorial process and requires good concentration levels, good attention span and ability to recollect and interpret things accordingly. In case you tend to forget things often, that may be due to poor attention span, easy distractibility and multiple things at work in your mind. To improvise on memory take it slow, organise things in order of importance. Have a good sleep at night.

When you sit down to study. Keep a target. That you should finish this much in this time. And don't get up before you finish it. Studying with a friend helps. Also put your leg in a bucket of cold water when you study. That helps in keeping you awake.
