I Have been suffering from Depression (probably Bi-polar disorder in the medical term). I am gay. My regular physiatrist assumed that I am bi-sexual. It is perfectly alright to get married a girl. After marriage, I will become straight. Is it possible to change my sexual orientation. I am at stress. Please help me.

You should have conveyed that to your psychiatrist. Nothing wrong in being gay, but if you marry a girl that is injustice s you can not sexually or emotionally satisfy her needs. If you were bisexual too, you could have proceeded. So if you are still gay and have no physical attraction to a female, do not marry a lady and spoil her life.

She required medicine as well as family and support to come out depression. If she is not taking medicine then try to give by mixing in juice, milk, curd, dal. Patients most often recover by 3 weeks.

I am in deeply depression since 8 months. I am staying single & unmarried. My family is depending on me only. My earnings are not much saving but I can handle any kind criticalities. I am the decision maker in my family. Now I am afraid to make decisions & take action on which happenings on my family. Present situation is that I am not able to concentrate to my personality development. I don't trust people much & I don't like to dependent on anyone. If I trust, I always try to be with them only and I can do anything for them (if not possible by me also). But they feel like bored & casually. I tried to avoid loneliness. I used to play chess most with online users. So that I get some relax for while but how can I play whole day? I also did whole day for some days. I did reading stories now I feel like these all stories I read already. I used to listening songs with high volumes but it seems like ear can damage. Now a days I am getting angry on everyone with small reasons. I feel that I wanna cry loudly, I wanna laugh bigger, I wanna shout very loud voice, I wanna fight. But I can not do these all things. I have respect in society & my office. I did not used at least rubbish language & I did not rude also. If I share my problems with anyone, they says me like its time to start drink, get married, get dating kind of, go for outings, and so many. I don't tried to make nonsense of myself because if anything goes wrong with me, the effect will be on my entire family. That's why I am so careful myself.

Mr. lybrate-user the complaints you have described clearly states that you are suffering from clinical depression. Unable to concentrate on work, not interested in previous pleasurable activities, feeling loneliness, irritability and crying spells all are classical symptoms of depression. Well stress, work environment, family pressure all can burden any individual. You at an young age are seeming to carry the burden of your whole family which is very much appreciable. My first advice to you is avoid using Internet and gadgets to make you better, they may worsen you in turn. Kindly don't use smoking and alcohol, particularly when depressed which can worsen you further. Try to be with friends and family. Spend time in places were people are engaged like malls and parks. Take a small break from the hectic schedule you are having. Maintain proper sleep pattern. Don't skip food. Practice exercises and yoga if possible, they are very essential to refresh ourselves. Love Yourself. Also kindly consult a psychiatrist for detailed evaluation and treatment. Be relaxed stay healthy.

I have been told I suffer from OCD which is resistant to medicines. That means medicines won't help me. What do I do? When I started medicines for OCD I was told I have to take them for only 6 months but now it's more than 10 years and I still am told to take medicines. I wonder if they aren't curing me why should I take them? At present I take Serta (100) 1-0-2; Axepta (25) 1-0-0; Zapiz (0.5) 1-1-1; Fluanxol (0.5) 1-1-1; Amitone (25) 1-1-0. Inspite of all these I wash hands too much. Skin on my hands hurts. Also I have been told these medicine have side-effects and they can harm liver & kidneys in the long run. Is there any way to live without medicines and also get rid of OCD?

Hello it is unfortunately true that ocd is one of the most difficult problem to treat for the doctor and to experience for the patient. Every medicine has side effects for sure but they are much less harmful than the disease itself. Already you have poor control of symptoms for 10 long years. I think you should get full knowledge about ocd first. I suggest the website www. Nimhans. Ac. In, you can find a link for ocd clinic and material for general public. It is a very good information in hindi. I can treat you but it will be a long and continuous process. You can consult on line but it may take up to 8-12 weeks before you find any reduction in symptoms. We can also introduce psychological treatment which is quite effective in combination with medicine

Hello this is vinod age 26 I am suffering from over thinking, depression for smaller things.
The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

You are depressed due to a reason -jobless/ home and your partner issues. You need to take counselling to learn coping skills. CBT is also helpful

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.

I think you need to know your legal rights. Talk to your father or brother about how you feel about all this. You will have to be more assertive. You may have to consult an advocate if you want to protect your property rights.

Dear doctors, over thinking and confusion are also called stress? Is Over thinking or confusion also called stress?
They are not called stress: overthinking and confusion m ay be because of stress or may be the cause of stress. You are on medication to reduce stress so you need to work with a counselor too, and identify where this started and treat the same over a period of time. The combination is ideal for a good resolution. It is not enough to give these symptoms a name. It is vitally important to get the right therapy for them and resolve the problem. Normally, these symptoms are a sign of some fear. In counseling, I would advise you to get some help around this fear and resolve it for a good experience to life hereafter.

Dear lybrate-user kasif. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

‘If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms – like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite – when you stop.’ One of the significant reactions of withdrawal is anxiety. Some people react to anxiety by escalating anger over it, which is what I think you are doing. Two years ago you were still in your late teens and your nerves were still forming and the damage to them can be quite considerable, especially at that time. Now that you have stopped you must seek professional help from an addiction counselor and work out the reasons behind the addiction in the first place. There may be a lot of precipitating factors that predisposed you to the substance. A lot of study of your family history, your personal development from prenatal days and your upbringing will be very useful to deal with in treatment. You must start a good exercise regimen for your physical recovery on a daily basis. There are four issues which you need to work on with your counselor: the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic issue, and the script issue. You should attend NA meetings regularly and change a lot of lifestyle habits, friends, social habits, and learn healthy ways to be a happy person without the use of substances. Your spiritual soundness is also an area of work to focus on. In the NA group you will be able to work on the 12-step program, which is very exhaustive and very useful to your recovery. Mere abstinence from the substance is not enough to resolve the addiction problem. Please go for a complete medical check up in relation to your addiction to identify any other damage that has to be attended to.

Basically 7-8 hours of total daily sleep is enough. This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. You may consult me.
