I've been diagnosed by a psychiatrist for depression and bi polar disorder. I want to understand what the disorder means for me and those around me as a lifestyle, what all will it involve. I'm on flunil 10mg and lenapoz 0.25 mg or smthng. What are the side effects of this medication. Will it ever be cured or do I have to take this medication lifelong to keep myself stable? I just need more clarity on the disease and its treatment.

I feel easily frustrated, depressed, my BP and sugar level goes down, unable to control my anger and thousand other bad things happening with me which in contrary ruining my Marriage. Since past 7 year, I have been suffering from thyroid mal function. Many times due to depression, I had suicidal thoughts but then I feel bad for my small kids. My husband is also a independent Lawyer. I stay at home alone for whole week with my kids and no one talking and sharing my feelings. I keep thinking all crazy and junk. My husband feel I m reason for every bad things happening. I lost my job, career, hopes, patience and peace of mind. I want to make my self happy so that I can make my love ones happy. PLease help.

Wow, that is a whole lot of complications for one person, in one lifetime and with no resolution at the end. I am glad that you gave up on the suicide idea, but not for the reasons you mention. You need to first live for yourself and then the others i.E. You daughters and husband will benefit. Your husband?s assessment is not at all justified. There is no such thing. However, you must look at your life and see, is God a significant part of it? I don?t hear that at all. You must turn to God in all these times of good and bad. ?When God is for you, who can be against you, very true and sensible. Please do cultivate your spiritual wellbeing and you will see some wonderful affects in your life. Then you need to take life into your own hands and make things happen too. Perhaps you are not made to be a mom-at-home kind of person. If the kids are old enough, get them some nanny-care and get out into the vast world full of opportunities. You will make good in the field out there with your background. Do also take charge of your wellness: exercise, eat and sleep well, spend time in the sun every day, meet people, do something productive with your time, work at improving your married life, and bring back your hope, love, peace of mind and activate your career. Things do not happen to us, we do things to attract them to us. If you are positive, you will find positive things happen to you. As you think, so are you. Change your thoughts and you will change who you are. It is as simple as that. Your husband will not find labels and accusations to throw at you. If you let things be as they are, it will become overwhelming and everything can be lost. You end your plea rather beautifully and correctly: I want to make myself happy so that I can make my loved ones happy. Now go out there and do it. Keep me posted with all good developments.

Dear lybrate user. Everyone are worried about the future and what could happen in future. Still everyone are able to live life peacefully and effectively. The basic reason behind this living is, everyone have something else to do for their day to day living. I think you do not have any life challenges. Get a challenge. Take care.

My daughter is 8 year old and good at studies and quite bright child. The problem is with her EQ. She usually has her opinion on everything and will make sure that it is been followed. She does not follow what we say at once usually. Sometimes in front of others, when she does something which we have told her not to do, it causes stress and anger in us. She wants us to give her complete attention all the time, which can not happen all the time. (incase of guests etc) during such times she demands for the tv. Which if I do not give. She starts irritating me. And after that she get the avoiding she gets into denial mode. So whatever is been told to do she will say no for it. How should I handle it?

Dear lybrate-user, it must be tough dealing with such a child. Give her instructions of what to do and what no to do very gently at a time when she is absolutely calm and receptive. Make her do more physical activities, like dancing, or aerobics or yoga or outdoor sports. This might take away some of her restlessness and regulate her body and mind. Also remember, one should be firm with children. Hope my suggestion helps you.

Sir, my grandfather has several illnesses, and other doctors told me that it is not curable. Im mot certain what the diseases are, but im going to describe some conditions about him. My grandfather is unable to move properly and always lies on the bed. He can barely walk. His speech is very slurred and needs extra effort to speak clearly. It has gotten to the point where we are unable to understand him. He also remains always idle. He never moves and stares at the ceiling. He also had alzheimer before showing these conditions, where he sometimes forgot smaller details spoken to him. He now never speaks, does not react to our voices, and other external stimuli. Could you please tell me what is going on? Thank you.

Hi, I think your granfather is old enough to have such problem. Actually, as you told he is not able to speak or react and even move, he has become tired of speaking, coz he is clear enough that whatever he speaks others want understand and react, but I think he can definitely see others around him so please if he knows to read then, kindly write in bold letters "your affection towards him "if you really love him. I can understand from the way you have expressed your grandfather's difficulty that you love and care more your grandfather. Do not worry, you are still young to understand what exactly happened to him. Each and everyone as we Grow older and older, our organs function slowly decreases and then finally stops functioning then, that is the end, but some stay healthy for long, the reason is some are strong, some are weak, some are hereditary problem, some are not. Many reasons matter, what to do we are not God to do some magic right. But at this time, I want you to express your love to your dear grandfather through actions, Do take care of him as long as possible, he will feel the comfort and warmth definitely from you all that is the happiness you can give him. Take Care. With regards,

What's this nicotine containing patches? I am asking as a layman to these terms please explain?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
Nicotine patch remains in direct contact with the skin of the person who wants to quit smoking and nicotine is absorbed slowly into the bloodstream and the person does not crave to smoke and thus lungs are saved.

I am spiritual but I feel frustrated many times. I stopped all my spiritual activities these days. I never scolded my son before. But now I am scolding and beating him. I feel sometimes to get salvation because nothing worked in my life whichever I wanted. I know this is not salvation meant to be. I feel many times to suicide. But I has fear of death. Whatever I expected nothing came to my life. Whatever I get I didn't realise that worth. Sometimes I realise and be happy. Sometimes I get angry and sad if things goes wrong around me.

Dear Lybrate user. Why should you go for suicide? This is no crime. You are in love with another man. There is nothing wrong in that. If you think itis wrong, you should change your attitude. Take it as normal and never get guilty or tensed. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

Sexual Abuse - Mental and Psychological Effects on Children

MBBS, Diploma in Psychological Medicine, M.D Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Sexual Abuse -  Mental and Psychological Effects on Children

Child sexual abuse is a pressing issue in society today. Statistically, there has been a considerable increase in the number of cases related to juvenile sex abuse over the past decade. Most of the cases report the abuser to be a close family member or a family friend rather than a complete stranger.

Future Consequences-

  1. A sexually abused child may develop severe mental health conditions and have major difficulties coping with as an adult. One of the most common disorders affecting survivors of child sexual abuse is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This involves the individual reliving the trauma all his/her life, thus leading to panic, stress and difficulties in living a healthy life in the longer run.

  2. The individuals who were abused as a child normally suffer from a very low self -esteem. They continue to blame themselves for the events that occurred and hence have a rather demeaning view of themselves, leading to adjustment issues in the future.

  3. They may also be diagnosed with clinical depression owing to the previous trauma. This hampers the everyday functioning of the individual. The individual may continue to relive the past traumatic events in the mind that further fuels their depression and contribute to the vicious cycle, eventually.

  4. Most often, survivors of child sexual abuse have a rather impulsive nature owing to the hampered functioning of impulse-control. They have lesser control over their emotions, especially anger and are rather quick to act on it.

  5. Because of all the complications, they might be less socially competent and thus fail to build firm peer relationships. They grow up to be adults with severe trust issues; they are hence, often side-lined because of their cynicism which leads to further depressive symptoms.

  6. Genophobia or the fear of sex is another complication that they may experience as adults. They may avoid sex altogether or engage in sexual activities that are rather violent in nature. Some survivors may develop certain sexual fetishes that can be rather dangerous; the most common being ‘paedophilia’ or the sexual arousal involving prepubescent children.

Conclusion-

The seriousness of the condition is often undermined. In treatment, various therapeutic techniques are used according to the need and age of the patient. Therapists work to promote positive thinking among the sufferers so that it becomes easy for them to accept their past and move on in life with a better outlook. With proper guidance and help, the individuals are able to overcome their mental health issues and live a wholesome life.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

Is it possible for periods to get delayed fr as long as 15 days, if a girl is under stress or depression?

Is it possible for periods to get delayed fr as long as 15 days, if a girl is under stress or depression?
Emotional and physical stress can affect the menstrual cycle and delay the period. Stress decreases hormone signals originating in the brain. This results in the failure of the ovary to release an egg. This causes an imbalance in the ovarian hormones estrogen and progesterone. So yes, stress and depression can be one of the reasons for a missed period. Regards,

My mom is working as a chief Merton in railway hospital. She has huge work load and she takes care of my family too. The problem is she gets angry very often. She picks a fight for very silly reasons and gets worked up over petty issues. She thinks that fighting and raising her voice is the ultimate solution for any problem.
