The symptoms that you are mentioning could be a sign of obsessive compulsive disorder. I would like you to elaborate more on your symptoms. What you need to know obsessive compulsive disorder can be a difficult, confusing experience. To overcome ocd, you need a clear understanding of how ocd works. Obsessive compulsive disorder bedevils millions of people with repetitive thoughts and rituals. It's the ultimate doubter's disease. Overcoming ocd will require you to work differently with uncertainty and doubts. Like all anxiety disorders, ocd works by tricking you. You need to understand how this trick works if you're going to overcome ocd. Here's how it works. You experience an unwanted thought which suggests the possibility of a catastrophic problem. For instance: what if I left the stove on, and the neighborhood burns? what if I got insecticide on my hands, and my family gets poisoned? what stops me from taking the carving knife and stabbing my spouse? what if I got poked by a needle infected with hiv? what if I ran over a pedestrian and didn't notice? these are thoughts about catastrophes. Naturally, you want to set them aside, and assure yourself that all is well. Ocd is an anxiety disorder, not a catastrophe disorder. To overcome ocd, you need to work with the anxiety of the thoughts, not the threats they make. You're not up against the catastrophes depicted in your thoughts. You're up against the thoughts, and how it feels to experience the thoughts. Thoughts are a dime a dozen. The path to recovery involves making changes in your daily behavior which enable you to accept, rather than resist, the obsessive thoughts. The more you can accept the thoughts, and the less you fight them, the better you will do. You don't have to accept the catastrophic predictions of the thoughts - just the fact that you have these thoughts. This is easy to say, harder to do. Ocd is a treatable problem, but it's usually hard work. So I suggest you start with two steps, and you can do them in whichever order you prefer. Even if you have a mild case, and plan to overcome ocd on your own rather than with a professional therapist, I suggest you consult one before you start your recovery program. This should be helpful to confirm your diagnosis, to give you a chance to ask questions, and to identify a suitable professional should you want to work with one later. Educate yourself about ocd there's no substitute for being an informed patient. Your understanding of ocd, and of the treatment method, will be a key to your progress. If you're going to overcome ocd, you need to become an informed consumer. Be selective in your use of the internet. There are many sites where people simply complain and post despairing messages about their symptoms. There are also many scams which sell false hope at high prices. How to overcome ocd: the keys to recovery whatever you do, here are three key guidelines. Your efforts to overcome ocd should follow these guidelines. Your recovery work should emphasize taking an accepting stance toward the thoughts. You don't have to accept the apparent meaning of the thoughts, just the fact that you have them. The only real meaning behind obsessive thoughts is that you're nervous, and you already knew that. Your recovery work should emphasize postponing the rituals and resistance. The obsessive thoughts always include the idea that you had better do something about the thoughts, or they'll continue to bother you indefinitely. But this is probably not so. As you get involved in your ordinary activities without going out of your way to bring the thoughts to an end, they will bother you less and less. Your recovery work should include the practice of regular, scheduled exposure to the obsessive thoughts. This can take the form of written scripts that you read, audio recordings that you listen to, and other forms of routinely working with material that can trigger your obsessive thoughts.

Am I an introvert? I don't like people getting to much into my life, I get irritated quickly, if my parents ask me any sorts of question I fire up, not wanting to meet new people, in short I'm happy and at my best only within my circle.

Yes. You are an introvert. But being an introvert is not bad thing. Most people are not comfortable outside their own circle but this is not a problem for most of them. To overcome this, you can practice by having conversation with other people and face your fears. It is not easy in the beginning but it can help gradually.

Eat a light diet - eat more of fruits and salads, avoid fried and oily foods. Drink a lot of water and exercise daily for 45mins-1hr. This will make you more active, alert and help you concentrate. Write your GOAL on a sheet of paper and put it where it is always visible. Memory is related to understanding -Therefore, 1. Always emphasize comprehension (understanding the topic) rather than cramming. 2. Divide task into smaller chunks - make points - ask your self the basic questions - What was there in the topic, Who did what , When, Where, Why and How? If you are able to answer these questions , you will generally remember it for long. 3. Revise the points orally before sleeping. 4. Keep yourself well hydrated- have water before sitting down to study. 5. Stop studying if you feel you can't understand- Take a short break for 10 mins, have a glass of water, stretch and get back to studying Set your targets for the next day before sleeping - and give yourself a suggestion that you are fresh after 6 hours of sleep.

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. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

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 or loss of loved person" 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 The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Yes. Negative thoughts are always a problem for aspiring young people. There are many methods to overcome negative thoughts. Start with these three steps. 1. Every time you catch yourself thinking a negative thought, replace the thought with a positive one. 2. If you catch yourself visualizing failure, visualize success instead. 3. If you hear yourself using negative words in your conversation, switch to positive words. After you are sure you did this for around one week, come back to me. I would provide more step by step instructions. Take care.

My wife age is 38, she is suffering from schizophrenia last four years but she does not take medication, she don't think that she is ill if we say that she is ill she become very aggressive what should we do? Please advice.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
She must somehow have the medication, if it has been prescribed. Some of the patients can be difficult about taking medication for fear of some unfounded reasons: the dull feeling, the weight gain, the low energy, etc., which are some of the drug reactions. There are medicines to counter these drug effects and if she is convinced she may cooperate. If you can talk and reason out the facts with her then she might be convinced more readily. If not she can be taken back to the doctor who diagnosed her and let him do the explaining. The other alternative is to talk to her doctor and see if s/he is willing to give some medication which can be slipped into her food or drink without her knowledge. In the worst case scenario she can be told that she will be admitted into the hospital or institution, if she does not cooperate. But you must be very careful that she does not do something drastic out of the fear of force being used. So you will need to monitor her 24 hours for her safety. There are also long-acting injections for schizophrenia, which may be administered too but in the guise of treating some other problem. Do consult her doctor to see if s/he has any other ingenious approach.

During depression one looses the power to experience any emotion. But what if mind just learns to embrace depression because the reality seems too harsh to bear? So mind just steps back into the emotionless state so as to be devoid of any feelings? What's d solution to the problem.

Psychotherapy is the solution. It is very convenient to be in your shell and letting everyone else look after you. Whenever we have a secondary gain we accept things the way they are instead of changing without realizing how much harm it is causing and will cause in longer run. Through psychotherapy we can get in roots of the problem and challenge your irrational thinking. There are better ways to deal with situation and problem instead of escaping by being emotionless. Consult a psychologist for your problem. You can consult me too.

You are not psycho. You are very sensitive type of person. From child hood onwards you have some internal frustrated thoughts. That you have unable to express in a proper manner. You are suffering from emotional instability. Emotions are not expressed in a proper manner. You need emotional therapy. Emotions are also fluctuated from time to time. So better to consult psychologist for emotion relaxation therapy and cognitive behaviour therapy. Some sessions after you feel normal. Do not think I am psycho etc. It is simple behavioural disorder it can be cured is some days. Better to consult good psychologist. Ok best of luck.

Dear depression needs to be diagnosed by proper face to face methods and assessment tools. Please consult a psychiatrist face to face. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.
