Hi doctor! Hope so im sharing my concern to a psychiatrist! I'm 26 years old female. For past 7 months I have been in severe guilty conscious and the stress has increased so much feeling bad of myself. Let me tell you about me first, I'm a well educated girl from respectable family with loving and more affectionate mom and dad. I'm open minded but stick to the values and ethics. Im a person who wants to be true and pure (physically and mentally) Now the problem I'm undergoing is, all my ethics and values have been lost due to the past relationships, where I thought the relationship was true, but I was ditched. I was in relationship with one for 2.5 yrs, everything was going good but as usual many misunderstandings came because of friends between me and him, many arguments. So I thought both life needs to be good in future, so I broke with him.(we were physically close, but don't cross the limits, Im virgin) After all the mental pains I went through for 6.5 months,my Ex was still insisting that we will go for another try, but as I was already frustrated with what happened, I dint change my mind. After 6 months my Ex told that he is in contact with one of our common friend and that girl is back of him and he too went for that girl because of frustration I have. Though I was not ready to take him because of fear. I wanted him to come back leaving all doubts. But when I got to know that he got committed to another one, I was completely shattered to pieces! Meanwhile I got introduced to a guy in my training and he was back of me, told like I don't want anything about your past, I want to be with you in future. First I was not convinced due to having past experience and feeling towards him. After one month, I made my mind that life should go on and it should not get stagnated. And accepted with heavy heart after seeing his acts and behaviour towards me and we fell in love. I was very true to him. I told I want some time to come out of my past, he accepted for that. Everything was fine, but later after one month he told there is no future for us! I wondered he is confused and time wil heal everything. We continued talking and meeting. We were physically​ close too (same here, dint cross the limits, I'm a still a virgin) Things dint change up even after 3 months. After training was over, I got to know he is relationship with another girl. Again broke into pieces. I felt like ditched and cheated to core. I was moving with my guilt of being physically close! I believed him and my Ex also, so I gave them space. But things changed. After few months I got to know that my Ex broke up that girl because he had intense feeling on me and some family problem from girl side for their marriage. Later we both started speaking and I told him what and all happened, he dint believe that I will do so and go for another one. He felt very bad and scolded that fellow over phone. We had and have love for each other, but because of past arguments and fights I started away. Now he is ready to take me even after knowing that I was close Intimate with that fellow. But he feels more bad and thinks A lot about it. I being more touched with self-conscience. My mind is not to ready to take what and all happened. And I don't want his (my Ex) life to be filled with memories that I was intimate with another fellow lifelong. Now my mind is full of guilt, guilt and only guilt! I'm feeling like going back to Ex who accepts after knowing all the things. Ready to speak with parents. Is not good for both our future, As the thoughts will ruin our both future! He is a person who strongly thinks about what and all happened and use to worry for it and in anger he will tell all those things and fight without knowing. This will ruin both our lives. I'm having so much guilt and feeling so sick and bad! I feel like I crossed my boundaries and made myself fall in well! Please help me out of this! thanks doctor.

Dear Lybrate user! It is very common these days to get trapped in between the value system and western lifestyle. As the time is changing rapidly it becomes difficult to differentiate between right and wrong specially at this young age. And youngsters are meant to be vulnerable to all these things. Whatever you have done may seen socially wrong and has it's consequences but life is all about moving on further. You cannot stay stuck to your past. Whatever you have done, be it right or wrong, is a part of growing up and now it is a part of your past. Past is better left in past. You cannot carry the burden of it throughout your life. If it feels you've done something wrong then try to rectify it by focusing on your career. Be a strong woman and take all the challenges that life throws at you. Now you have to recollect all the pieces once again and build your inner strength. Learn from your mistakes take a lesson and as you have said you have maintained your virginity so be proud of it and take good care of your present and future rather than staying stuck to your past experiences. You haven't lost your character. An entire life is waiting for you to embrace it. Build your strength, accept your past, learn from it and move forward. As far as your relationship with your ex is concerned then I would suggest you to think deeply and do not take any action in impulse or by being emotional because as you have shared you already had sour chemistry with each other. Now even after knowing his temper and nature and that you have shared your bad experience with him as well, and as you have written he taunts and fights with you raising the same topic again and again that means this thing has an intense impact on him so that may cause damage to both of you. So if you think it is worth to take your relationship further after knowing all the consequences will be a good idea then you have to think very carefully because marriage is a serious deal and you cannot spend your entire life with someone who questions your dignity again and again. And if you really think that your bond is strong enough to go through the storm together then go ahead. Whatever you decide, decide wisely. Life is beautiful and nothing worths spoiling it. Wish you luck :)

Anxiety and depression often times go together. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Paranoid Personality Disorder - 12 Signs A Person Is Suffering From It!

MBBS, MD-Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Allahabad

The mind is a very intricate organ and controls the entire body functioning with great precision. Any small change in its wiring would mean changes in the way a person functions, including changes of emotions and feelings.

There is a group of personality disorders known as “cluster A” personality disorders. One of the most common forms in this is a paranoid personality disorder, also known as PPD. The onset of the problem is in early adulthood and men are more likely to have this condition as compared to females. People with paranoid personality disorder are very odd or have eccentric ways of thinking. The most common way of thinking is suspicion with no reason to do so.


  1. They are always on watch or guard and believe that others are out to harm or demean them.
  2. Their belief and distrust are often unfounded, and they find it very difficult to form close relationships, either at work or at home.
  3. There is always a doubt in terms of other people’s commitment and trust, and believe that others are out to use them and often end up deceiving them
  4. Find it very difficult to confide in people, and think the information they tell others may be used against them.
  5. They are always known to hold grudges from past experiences and find it very difficult to forgive others
  6. They are not open to criticism and are extremely sensitive to what others think of them or tell them
  7. Try to read between the lines and interpret more than the obvious
  8. They are very quick to retaliate and think others are constantly attacking what they say and/or do
  9. There is a constant thread of suspicion especially of their spouses or partners, which would be completely unfounded, and add unwanted strain on the relationships
  10. Refrain from forming close relationships and keep some distance even in close relationships. They are generally cold and can be jealous and controlling of their near and dear ones
  11. Firmly believe that their thoughts and words and actions are always right and do not believe in conflict resolution. They are usually argumentative, hostile, and stubborn
  12. They always present as tense and cannot relax very easily

Causes: There is usually a past history of emotional or physical abuse, which is unresolved, leading to these symptoms. Hypnosis, which is often used to diagnose the condition, is very helpful in identifying the cause.

Diagnosis: There are specific assessment tools and questionnaires which are useful in confirming the diagnosis.

Management: Psychotherapy where the person is taught to manage the above feelings and taught to communicate and cope with others. This is often combined with antidepressants, benzodiazepines, and antipsychotics.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello, I am having a weak memory power. Whatever I study I forget. Pls suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem-solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning, at least, five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position, you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There is some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Nothing wrong with you. You were so engrossed with the problem at hand that your brain ignored the auditory signals (your boss calling you). Show this message to your boss so he will understand that it is not your fault as your brain was too engrossed in problem solving that it ignored every other distracting stimulus!

Hi lybrate-user, it may be postpartum depression. Please consider the following sings: inability to sleep or sleeping more than normal change in appetite extreme concern and worry about the baby or a lack of interest or feelings for the baby feeling unable to love the baby or your family anger toward the baby, your partner, or other family members anxiety or panic attacks fear of harming your baby; these thoughts may be obsessive, and you may be afraid to be left alone in the house with your baby. Irritability sadness or excessive crying difficulty concentrating or remembering feelings of doubt, guilt, helplessness, hopelessness, or restlessness lethargy or extreme fatigue loss of interest in hobbies or other usual activities mood swings marked by exaggerated highs and lows feeling emotionally numb. Its better to show her to a psychiatrist. Also, increase physical activity by introducing aerobic exercises, yoga, pilates or stretching regimens to your daily routine. Physical activity can help the body release mood-improving endorphins. Eat well. A nutritious diet, complete with fruits, vegetables, lean protein, low-fat dairy, and whole grains will help you feel better. If you are breastfeeding, eating well becomes even more crucial as your nutrients pass their way to your baby. Avoid high-sugar foods like soda, caffeine, and alcohol. All of these can aggravate postpartum depression by altering your mood in certain ways. For example, caffeine can make you anxious and alcohol is a depressant. All the best.
