Hi. I'm a 21 year old female from Kolkata. I have a family and lots of friends. But I feel really underappreciated. There is a lot of talks outside about hiw we shouldn't expect and be selfless and everything. But it all seems very superficial to me. Few years back i was like a goat. I never complained to anyone about anything i felt. I truly used to believe that if I keep on striving for recognition in front of my parents , if i be there for my friends , everything will be ok. Off late i have absorbed the fact that they weren't my true friends, i have stopped compromising for those 'friends' and instead made acquaintances with new people. But unfortunately i cannot do that with my family. I feel really tied down. There is a lot of complicated situation here like immature and biased mother and an angry and biased father . Being the middle child, i feel like my family attaches no calue to me whatsoever. My father has always has an unashamed inclination towards my sister and my mother towards my brother. I have always don't everything in my power to please them, to impress them, to get them to think about me. But it never happens. I feel like I'm draining my energies. And it's affecting my behaviour pattern. I'm very easily irritated and I hate to be at home . I feel like getting lost in oblivion because I feel worthless and I feel like I don't belong to anyone. I was betrayed in friendship by someone i called my bff. And that incident though 2 years old Stoll feels like a knife cutting through me. I need help . I want to straighten my thoughts out and focus on what's important in my life , I have major exams in a matter of two months. I feel really helpless, stuck in a spiral that's heading lower and lower.
Dear sir/maim, during study my mind is not well concentrated and easily distracted. I can't remember the subjects for 1 day at least. What I can do to increase my memory and concentration power during study. Please reply soon.
As per medical studies, bipolar disorder is a personality disorder that is said to affect millions of people around the world, as per medical studies. Extreme mood swings that take a person from a state of euphoria to depression can be called bipolar disorder. While we all go through phases of the same, the patients who suffer from this disorder will usually show a persistent swing or shift between varying moods. The severe shifts will lead to difficulties when it comes to managing one's everyday affairs in a normal manner. The symptoms and signs are also characterised by the phases and mood swings that the patient may be going through.
Read on to know more about the signs and symptoms of bipolar disorder:
- Mania: One of the extremes in mood swings experienced by the patient includes extreme euphoria or mania for no apparent, or life altering reason. Feeling overly happy and enthusiastic are the basic symptoms of this phase.
- Impulsive: The patient can end up feeling elated for a prolonged period of time, with extreme restlessness and impulsive behaviour. They may also end up getting agitated and edgy. This is usually characterised by fidgety behaviour and when the patient speaks too fast. The patient may speak too fast due to racing thoughts which overtake his or her speech and actions.
- Confidence: In this stage, the patient may also display extraordinary confidence, which may not necessarily be backed by reality. In reality, things may be very different in terms of opportunities, skills, people and other such factors. During this mania phase, the patient may also indulge in risky behaviour that gives an adrenaline rush like gambling and having sexual intercourse with multiple partners. This usually happens when the patient is bolstered by a sudden surge of unfounded confidence.
- Depression: This is the other end of the spectrum for these patients. When the mania abates, it gives to way to extreme depression and even anxiety.
- Withdrawal: The patient usually tends to isolate himself or herself from the rest of the family and social circle for a prolonged period, refusing to meet anyone on a normal basis. They also avoid contact with people whom they meet every day, which can have an adverse effect on their work and the rest of the aspects of their lives.
- Memory and Concentration: In this phase, the patient can also experience difficulty in remembering important things and concentrating on tasks. The patient may also be preoccupied with a number of things which can prevent him or her from making proper decisions. Slow speech and lack of energy may follow as a result of such preoccupation. Preoccupation with death is a common symptom of this phase. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
