Please try to change the erratic habits to have a permanent solution. Focus on doing one thing at a time. Have a disciplined life and take care of your health. Drink lots of water and fluids (2-3 ltr) and include fruits and vegetables in daily diet so that you get sufficient fiber. Also exercise every day so that it will also correct your bowel habit naturally. Avoid junk food and any bad habits. You can take some laxative for a short period if it is difficult for you to pass stools.

I lost somebody last month and feeling depressed since that incident so please help me.
It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Borderline Personality Disorder - Causes And Symptoms

Borderline Personality Disorder - Causes And Symptoms

Personality refers to the enduring and habitual patterns of behaviour, cognition, emotion, motivation and ways of relating to others. In simpler terms, it's the persona we have for the world to see and interact with. If these patterns or ways of relating with others become nonadaptive or pathological, a personality disorder develops.

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is such a disorder of personality that causes mood swings, self-esteem issues, impulsive behavior and recurrent self-harm behaviour. It is very difficult to lead a normal life with these varied psychological issues.

The symptoms begin to appear from early childhood but they take a serious form only when one reaches adulthood. Issues with behavior and emotion are difficult to treat, people suffering from this illness should be willing to spend a lot of time and be dedicated towards his/her recovery. Through treatments and therapies, they do make significant improvements over time.

Causes

The exact cause of borderline personality disorder is not known but various reasons have been hypothesised as possible aetiology. Neuro-chemical disturbance in the brain, genetic vulnerability, some kind of childhood trauma like abandonment, death, neglect and/ or sexual abuse are probable causes of the disease. Prolonged and chronic stress/ anxiety may also lead to triggering of BPD symptomatology in vulnerable individuals later in life.

Symptoms

  • Prolonged dysthymia/ sadness
  • Feeling lonely/ misfit
  • Emotional dysregulation or Frequent mood swings
  • Significant interpersonal issues
  • Self-Injurious behaviour like making cuts in skin, burning, pricking etc

These symptoms are warning signs of borderline personality disorder and should be paid attention to:

  • Abandonment issue - People suffering from BPD have serious abandonment issues. They have an intense fear that they would be left alone and often act out to restrict their love ones from leaving. Sometimes their strategy is to not get too close to protect themselves from being left alone, so they appear aloof.
  • Disturbed self-image - People have self-esteem issues, they sometimes love or hate themselves or see themselves as evil. They have unclear goals, views, beliefs and often end up changing their friends, lovers, jobs, sexual identity frequently.
  • Dysfunctional relationships - It is very difficult to maintain a normal relationship for people with personality disorder. They tend to have quick short-lived relationships and get put off very easily which leads to a lot of heartbreak.

Suicidal tendencies and frequent self-harm behaviour like cutting skin using blades/ sharp objects are common.

Drugs and alcohol abuse, eating disorders and sexual promiscuity are other forms of self-destructive behaviour commonly encountered in this population. Extreme aggression, delusions, transitional Psychotic states are other possible symptoms of BPD.

Love and support from family and friends are crucial for patients suffering from this disease. Prolonged counseling sessions, therapies and the effort to break away from the chronic gloomy thoughts will definitely lead one to a better life.

If you are not able to study due to being depressed, it is quite understandable since concentration loss is one of the key criteria for depression. Counseling can help, as can medications if you do not have the time. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, audio or video appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

Hai Doc, I smoke daily 1 cigarette occasionally 3-5 a day. What can I do for quite smoking.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Dear lybrateuser, - Decide a date when you will completely stop smoking, remove all cigarettes, lighter etc from your place, also inform your family & friends who should not coax you to have one - to reduce the urge keep your mind busy with your job, studies, hobby, do regular exercise drink a glass of water or go out for a walk, if still you can't get over the urge then chew a nicotene gum 2-3 times a day & gradually stop it after some days - it is your willpower & determination only which will help stop your habit.
