Hello doctor. Good morning. I'm a 22 year old female. I was working in an MNC. But I quit my job because of my mood swing. Sometimes I achieve unexpected target and sometimes I would literally complete nothing. Even when I achieve big numbers I don't feel happy and at times I don't bother about not achieving my target. Sometimes I don't care about what others say no matter how bad or hurting it is whereas sometimes I burst out badly even for silly issues. At times I become unusually silent and sad for no reason at all. At times I'm very calm and composed and act very mature. Also I have the tendency of hurting myself. Sometimes I get too angry and tensed for lame issues. At such situations I rush to restroom and poke myself with a pen or scratch myself hard with my nails or slam my head over the wall or knock myself. By doing so I feel relaxed but still it doesn't hurt me. I'm scared of my behavior. Colleagues, family members and friends started noticing my behavior and they are all worried and scared about me. I always feel like a voice constantly telling me suicide is the only solution for everything. Is this any serious issue ? Please help me recover from this.

Yes, it is and you need immediate help from a professional. I recommend that you meet a counselor and that person will surely advise you to meet a doctor too. Now you must cooperate with both therapies for maximum results. These extreme moods swings are indicative of a serious condition.There are certain adaptations that will suit you during the elation phase and there are certain behaviors that are required during the depressed phases. In the meantime, you can do certain things that will give you benefits anyway. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You need to particularly look at your levels of anger both for its reasonableness and to express it in an appropriate manner. I suspect that much of this anger may have origins in early childhood that you may never be aware of now. Talk to your parents and explore that angle. This information will help the counselor too. Also, you will need to check whether there is any genetic factor involved. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. The reason I say this is that many times you will be inclined to have grandiose notions and confidently believe that you can do without the medication. This will set you back many months in the treatment and delay and sabotage the recovery: forewarned you are forearmed. If this combination of medication with therapy is maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns, it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor. When your anger is turned inwards you will want to hurt yourself. You are harmful to yourself​ and need help soon.

I am 42 and have been on psychiatric medicines for long. For almost 5 years now I have been taking depakote 250, paliris 1.5 mg and buspin 5 mg. Initially I was on slightly higher dose but this reduced dose I have been taking since almost 2 years. I had depression but I really didn't have anythin serious as such but to mention a few years back I use excercise very vigorously and have a light diet coz of that I felt some kind of imbalance I guess. Now I am more stable, do only light walks and eat and sleep well. I am also happily married and well settled now. I am actually trying to stop these medicines and I was in consultation with my delhi doctor but now have moved from there. Docs here have told me to taper it down slowly but whenever I try to stop them completlely, which I tried several times, I get severe withdrawal symtoms. Bad headache and weakness. I guess since I have been taking these for so long I am not able to stop. Please suggest how do I stop these medicines as I feel very lethargic also because of them. Is there any alternative medicine which can be taken to prevent me from getting withdrarwal symptoms and stop the above medicines. Please help!

Medication will not teach you new skills to face life without them. If medicines have given you the opportunity to learn about life, then do take it and meet some psychiatrist for withdrawal management.

When I study for exams I read well and get prepared for that but if I entered in to exam hall I can't remember what I studied for the exam I am getting lack of memory power.

POST GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY, Masters in clinical psychology
Psychologist, Mumbai
HI lybrate-user It seems that you get nervous. When you enter the examination hall make yourself comfortable, take a few deep breath to reduce tension. Take your time to read through all the question's and instructions carefully. Pick the questions that relate well to your revision, and start writing. Don't think about result just do your best. For improving memory power try to involve yourself in reading! instead of just reading you need to read and think about what you reading and summarize it in your memory and make a short notes. Revise often and re- read to your notes as much as you can. Be sure to get enough sleep and eat healthy. All the best.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear cause grief related depression. Such grief related depression stays for some days or weeks. Then it diffuse itself. If you still have that depression, take care.

How to stop smoke and how make happy sex life.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
How to stop smoke and how make happy sex life.
Your sex life will improve as soon as you stop smoking. Apart from that you need to exercise regularly, eat well, sleep well, and live life stress-free. It is anyway a collaborative venture between husband and wife and has to be enjoyed so. If it is selfishly sought, then the frustration of the other will force the intimacy into monotony and it will gradually atrophy into a meaningless routine. The urge to discontinue smoking, on the other hand, can be hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. Nicotine also reduces the erectile capacity of your penis to hamper satisfying sex. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here?s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world ? you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

U r insecure or worried about something, ask yourself. 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.

You have indeed gone through hell already by 23 years. I do not envy your position nor the situation you are in vis-à-vis your extended family not willing to see your problems and not being of support. But you must remember that this is your life. When you think of ending it, it means only one thing that you are treating yourself like the other people: that is you are hurting yourself and wanting to end your life!!! So in essence you are living or not living your life but what other people expect of you, which is to ruin it. You are in charge of your life and what you make of it. You are not accountable to anybody but to god and yourself. Please listen to me: go meet a counselor and talk these matters over. Do not do anything foolish about your life but make a good plan to both work and study. Start in a small way and step by step grow up in life and the society you live in. Do not bother what other people say unless it is true. It is possible to regain all your family lost glory and come back to life with a vengeance. See if you can connect with a relative who has some sympathy or better still if they have empathy towards your cause and together with that support act on your plans. You have to convince them of your determination and genuineness. Do not let ego or pride come in the way of your reaching out to others. Also meet with your doctor because one of the side-effects of your medicine is to have suicidal tendencies. I love that you want others to learn but not through your death. In fact, they will see that it is because of these problems that you took control of your life and made it: that sure will be a good example and role model for others to learn from you. Let me proud of you too, okay? I have helped a person aged 35 years without education, suffering from TB and drug addiction and having a very serious criminal past come out of his mess: he got married to a doctor!, and currently he is the director of an institute!!! I remember that his first investment was something he was very passionate about: a walkman set!!!

Usually in anxiety there will be shaking (tremors), but from what you describe it seems more like organic (neurological) rather than psychological. The leg jerks you state r likely to be myoclonic jerks, better consult a neurologist. All the best.

U may be suffering from depression or personality disorder, get your self evaluated for these. 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. If symptoms are severe and significant. Consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Feeling stressed during exams is normal but too much anxiety reduces efficiency. Take adequate sleep. Make a workable time table to cover the topics to be prepared. Take time to relax by way of exercise or sports or a creative hobby like singing/ dancing etc regularly. Detressing yourself prevents stress from building up. Talk to famiky or friends. If anxiety is too much and you are unable concentrate or sleep, seek professional help.

Seeing your parents fighting would have left you insecure and fearful. Your trust in people and relationships has not developed because you haven't seen your parents modelling it for you. Yet it's not the end of the world. You can stay in your city and still work towards building your life and relationships. Try to remember those times when you did have a friend or cared for someone even briefly. Even if there were very few people who you cared for but still you did it. Inside the lonely person there is a gentle and beautiful person who wants to love and be loved. Nurture that part of you and let it grow. You will start living your life again. Change your counsellor if the other one didn't help you.

I am a 22 year old and but I have problem in speaking my voice is not clear while I am speaking this to be like as my sound is not clear.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.
