I am having relationship issue how to tackle it. My partner has ditched me, stopped talking to me. She does not want to continue anymore after saying yes to marriage. This is really depressing.

See, for such reason its not fair to be depressed. You try to convince your love to her. If she is not agreeing you can not do anything more, better search some other girl and get married soon, to get rid from it.

I am finding little difficult in quitting smoking and alcohol. Are there any medicines which could stop the urge?

BHMS
Homeopath,
Take homoeopathic mother tincture acid sulph q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for alcohol take homoeopathic mother tincture daphne indica q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water. This medicine will help to reduce your craving for nicotine. To minimise the bad-effects of smoking take one single bulb garlic everyday at morning before brushing your teeth.

I am 24 years male medical student. I have habit of smoking. Can you help me quit smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When quitting, you must take one day at a time. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is 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 and you must remind yourself about this every day. 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. 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.

Can a person have multiple personality disorder like paranoia personality disorder and dependent personality disorder at the same time,

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Karaikal
Can a person have multiple personality disorder like paranoia personality disorder and dependent personality disorder...
Yes that can occur sometimes. Simultaneous presence of multiple Personality disorders (PDs) is a valid diagnosis, as per International Classification of Diseases and DSM manuals of psychiatric disorders registry. Such a person should be treated appropriately with psychotherapy and drugs as necessary. Usually such occasional multiple PDs occur from same cluster of PDs, eg. Dependent and anxious PDs from cluster C, narcissistic and borderline PDs from cluster B may co-exist. Comorbid Intercluster PDs eg. Paranoid PD (cluster A) with Depressive PD (cluster C) can also be seen in a same person. By the by PDs are the most common disease /disorder in humans, with about 1 in 3 (33%) expected to have 1 or more PDs causing distress to himself or his family members/loved ones, and liable to affect interpersonal relationships and net functional performance.

I have a diagnosis of depression and also generated anxiety disorder. I currently take Zoloft 100mg daily. Also Depakote 250mg 2 tabs every night as it makes me very drowsy. I've had a trial month of my psychiatrist taking me off of the Depakote and I believe I was extremely moody and very emotional the entire month. When I am taking the Depakote I feel better but my boyfriend describes my mood as up and down up and down throughout the day. He feels I am very moody. Which I feel contributes a negative impact on our relationship. I have a dx of PTSD r/t the tragic death of my husband. He passed in 2007 and the only medication I ever took while married was an antidepressant. After his death is when all these emotions and depression started and I've been treated for the last almost 9 years on July 31st. My anxiety is so extreme that I get extremely nervous to go to public functions and even family functions. I will have a panic attack causing me to feel like my blood sugar plumes he'd. I'm sweaty, increased pulse rate, weakness, vomiting. I just can't function or even get into the shower. Wondering of you have any other ideas on medications to help with my severe anxiety. I also take 2mg Xanax extended release and 0.5 mg instant release for break through anxiety. I also take adderall 30 mg ER and 10 mg at 2 pm. This has helped with my anxiety and also my quality of life except my afternoons I'm very fatigued and tired. I feel like my adderall needs to be increased. Any ideas?

Hello, If you are open to opt for some other mode of treatment, then only can recommend you homoeopathy along with yoga. (But don't stop your ongoing medication all of sudden rather taper it off). Practicing yoga with homoeopathic medication helps you in releasing the stress from your body. Brisk walk in a park will help you inhale more fresh air and oxygen for good functioning of the cells and tissues of the body. Medication: Take Schwabe’s Bacopa Monierri 1x/ thrice daily and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night. Yogasana: Practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1. Balasana: Sit on your heels with your big toes touching and hands resting on your thighs. Lower your belly and chest to rest between your knees, bringing your forehead to the floor. Relax your arms back beside your shins, palms facing up. Soften your breath by taking 5 to 10 long, deep inhalations and exhalations. 2. Savasana: lie back, letting your body sink into and open around the support. End in a supported pose on your back with a folded blanket under the length of the spine to help arch the upper and middle back, and lengthen the lower back. Move your arms a comfortable distance away from your body and anything else around you. Turn your palms to face up. Separate your legs a natural distance apart. Relax your feet and let them roll open. Finally, do a mental scan from head to toe: Where are you holding tension. Release it from every part of your body—including your heart and head. 3. Bhujanasana: Slowly slide forward from Child's Pose to lie facedown. Press your toes and forehead gently into the floor. Rest your palms lightly on the floor on either side of your chest with fingertips pointing forward and elbows bent and hugging in toward your ribcage. Inhale and lift your chest from the heart, pressing only very lightly into your palms and mostly using your back strength to hold your shoulders and chest up. Soften your shoulders. Then lift your hands off the floor completely, broadening across your collarbones and reaching your heart up. Take a couple of deep, slow breaths here. Then as you exhale, place your palms back down and gently lower your chest to floor.

What is most important is a secure, loving meaningful relationship. Sex is secondary. If your good behaviour- i. E. You never took advantage - could not keep her, sex would not matter. So, concentrate on being a good person, earn respect and money, girls will be attracted to your standing.

Dear lybrate user if you are getting suicidal thoughts immediately consult a psychologist, it seems you need regular therapy sessions. Please reflect upon the causes of such feelings. Sometimes when our daily routine gets monotonous we do get these feelings. Its important to identify the causes so that we will work upon those reasons and remove them immediately from your life. Try to make a thought journal and when you get negative thoughts you can write in it or share with some loved one.

Hi would like to know in detail about your situation, so that we can come up with better solutions. Apart from that try mindfulness. To practice mindfulness meditation, you’ll need: A quiet environment. Choose a secluded place in your home, office, or outdoors where you can relax without distractions or interruptions. A comfortable position. Get comfortable, but avoid lying down as this may lead to you falling asleep. Sit up with your spine straight, either in a chair or on the floor. You can also try a cross-legged or lotus position. A point of focus. You can meditate with your eyes closed or open so this point can be internal—a feeling or imaginary scene—or external—a flame, an object in your surroundings, or a meaningful word or phrase that you repeat throughout the meditation. An observant, noncritical attitude. Don’t worry about distracting thoughts that go through your mind or about how well you’re doing. If thoughts intrude during your relaxation session, don’t fight them, just gently turn your attention back to your point of focus. A more detailed analysis would be helpful. Contact me for the same. All the best.

From your version your boy friend seems to be suffering from borderline personality disorder. Your obsession with the guy may be associated with your own need for attention and recognition which he consistently gives either in a positive way or negative way. You continuation of this relationship can only land in problems and consistent emotional distress. So better quit the relationship and start focusing on your academics and career.
