You incurred a loss that is understandable. In fact losing someone to drugs and alcoholism is even more disturbing. But if you continue feeling sad and depressed about your loss and feel unable to get out of it, you should not hesitate in seeking help from a psychiatrist. You may psychiatrist for counseling and treatment with medications if required.

In a long distance relationship the intimacy component of the relationship cannot grow. Love and relationships have to be nurtured and cannot be expected to remain for eternity if not given adequate care. Time to reconsider your major life decisions - job, partner, place of living, etc. -Dr.Parthasarathy, Psychiatrist OMR Chennai.

Some things you say is not clear. I am presuming that your dad married again and you have lost your biological mother for some reason. You want to do good and that is really an excellent wish and thought to have. But you also sound very disturbed that just giving you advice on text messages is not going to work for you. You need help and soon too. To have a death wish at any time, is itself not normal. Your situation must be extraordinary for such desperation. Kindly seek a psychiatrist’s help without any delay, and take some responsible family member with you. Life is extremely precious, and everyone is turning the world upside down to survive and stretch life to the maximum. Please visit a geriatric ward and you will understand what I am saying. I feel something that is bothering you that may appear impossible but that is the fallacy. Every problem has a solution and only by speaking with someone else will you come to know the different alternatives to your situation. People who are severely depressed tend to think suicidal thoughts, generally. Depression is treatable although it may not seem so to the depressed mind. Also, if you are religiously/spiritually-oriented, you will never entertain thoughts of destroying life. Suicide does not solve problems, facing life square-on does. You may be feeling hopeless under the circumstances but that will be so, if you are withdrawn and do not share your problem with others. Please seek help from a professional immediately. Alternatively, reach out to a religious person for some spiritual intervention.

I am in love from Past 2 years. And I want to marry my boyfriend. But he is saying no. Plus I'm attached a Lot to him and can't stay a day without seeing him. These days my behavior has changed a Lot. I get stressed easily. I feel like no one is bothered about me. Whenever I fight with him, I feel like committing suicide. I have tried having pills. And have even tried cutting my hand with scissor. Have broken my specs in anger. And when I don't know how to remove my anger. I slap myself. On silly reasons I get annoyed. My anger last reached a high level which I'm not able to control. I stay awake late night crying. I'm not able to concentrate on my work as well. I even realize my mistakes when I'm wrong. But I spoil things in so bad manner that asking for apology makes no sense. I am not able to understand things. Am I into depression? And how do I control my anger. I really love him more than my life. Please help me.

Dear Lybrate user lybrate-user your behaviour mainly depends on your love life if your boyfriend will talk in a good way then everything will be fine otherwise you loses your self controlling power first talk to him and try to know the reason ,both of you were in relation so you should know the reason ,Ask onething with yourself that by hurting yourself will anything will change --no, So behave maturely and try to solve this matter, but by hurting yourself or doing anything wrong you are complicating the situation. Take help of any common friend .By doing all this thing if he says yes then it will be for some time this can't lasts longer ,you need to give space in your relation ,Don't call or message for sometime, then he will realise your importance and trust me when he will come after realising your importance then this relation will be much stronger.In the mean time do few things make some new friends and spend sometime with them, go for shopping or movie, make yourself busy as much as you can ,don't be alone ,do deep breathing exercise, develop some new hobby. Take help of any professional. If you need my help you can contact me. Take care.

I'm 30 years old I have an anxiety problem. I feel my hearts sometimes beats very fast and sometimes very slow.

I'm 30 years old I have an anxiety problem. I feel my hearts sometimes beats very fast and sometimes very slow.
Hi, Have you been diagnosed with anxiety? When you're feeling anxious or stressed, these strategies will help you cope: Take a time-out. Practice yoga, listen to music, meditate, get a massage, or learn relaxation techniques. Stepping back from the problem helps clear your head. Eat well-balanced meals. Do not skip any meals. Do keep healthful, energy-boosting snacks on hand. Limit alcohol and caffeine, which can aggravate anxiety and trigger panic attacks. Get enough sleep. When stressed, your body needs additional sleep and rest. Exercise daily to help you feel good and maintain your health. Check out the fitness tips below. Take deep breaths. Inhale and exhale slowly. Count to 10 slowly. Repeat, and count to 20 if necessary. Do your best. Instead of aiming for perfection, which isn't possible, be proud of however close you get. Accept that you cannot control everything. Put your stress in perspective: Is it really as bad as you think? Welcome humor. A good laugh goes a long way. Maintain a positive attitude. Make an effort to replace negative thoughts with positive ones. Get involved. Volunteer or find another way to be active in your community, which creates a support network and gives you a break from everyday stress. Learn what triggers your anxiety. Is it work, family, school, or something else you can identify? Write in a journal when you’re feeling stressed or anxious, and look for a pattern. Talk to someone. Tell friends and family you’re feeling overwhelmed, and let them know how they can help you. Talk to a physician or therapist for professional help. For the biggest benefits of exercise, try to include at least 2½ hours of moderate-intensity physical activity (e. G. Brisk walking) each week, 1¼ hours of a vigorous-intensity activity (such as jogging or swimming laps), or a combination of the two. 5 X 30: Jog, walk, bike, or dance three to five times a week for 30 minutes. Set small daily goals and aim for daily consistency rather than perfect workouts. It's better to walk every day for 15-20 minutes than to wait until the weekend for a three-hour fitness marathon. Lots of scientific data suggests that frequency is most important. Find forms of exercise that are fun or enjoyable. Extroverted people often like classes and group activities. People who are more introverted often prefer solo pursuits. Distract yourself with an iPod or other portable media player to download audiobooks, podcasts, or music. Many people find it’s more fun to exercise while listening to something they enjoy. Recruit an “exercise buddy.” It's often easier to stick to your exercise routine when you have to stay committed to a friend, partner, or colleague. Be patient when you start a new exercise program. Most sedentary people require about four to eight weeks to feel coordinated and sufficiently in shape so that exercise feels easier.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? 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. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life.

I drink 3 times a week and my age is 23 so do i have any side effects for this in future?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Well you do not state how much you drink each time. If you take two drinks at a time, then it is not a problem immediately. If you do not have much self-control in other areas, then one day you will start losing control in your drinking too. Or if you are susceptible to stress, you will increase your drinking. If you have any preconditions to addictions, you will be prone to increase the quantity and frequency of drinking. There are two aspects to consider for addictions: dependence and tolerance. The former is when the mind and the body become too dependent on alcohol to face life, or situations, or stresses. Then you cannot give it up easily or function normally without it. The second feature is that of tolerance, which is common to all addictive substances: as time goes by you will need more quantities to get the same effect. In which case, you will gradually increase the consumption of alcohol over time till you become enslaved to it. If you try to stop it, you will experience withdrawal symptoms which can be very severe too. Regarding side effects there are many, if you go into heavy drinking: you will get an enlarged heart, brain damage with heavy drinking, late to work and lots of absenteeism, accidents while driving or otherwise, marriage problems, health difficulties including cancer of several organs, loss of employments, loss of libido and sexual functions, loss of opportunities etc. The list can go on and on. If you want to read more about addictions you may contact me with a payment of Rs. 250/- for my book on it. Postage is free.

Sir/madam Iam narender and my question is how long time I can use medicine for schizophrenia.

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Schizophrenia is a thought disorder where a person loses reality boundaries and has behavioral issues. It is cause of discrepancy in neurotransmitters like dopamine, glutamate and serotonin. The medications are targeted for these neurotransmitters. Most patients have relapsing courses and it is advisable to continue the medications for preventing relapse. Approximately one third patients require lifetime medications. It is wise to consult your psychiatrist for ascertaining the course and prognosis of disease.

The important sign in panic attack is the feeling that you cannot handle fear and you are using an extreme reaction to the fear. You cannot control panic attack but you can do two things: you can change your perception of the fearful stimulus and you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react in a panic. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Stage fear and this anxiety are both related to ear too. This is the number one fear of all people. Even the most successful speakers admit to this problem. In fact the first 90 seconds are most frightening. The heart beat races to doubles the normal: 144 times a minute. So you are advised to prepare a good opening sentence to launch you off to a good start. The fear is generally centered around rejection: am I good enough? Will people like me? Will people know more than me? Etc. A host of self-conscious comparisons that only make you feel inferior. When the whole world is in the same boat, take heart and learn some basic techniques to overcome this stage fright. Join a Toastmasters club in your town and develop your public speaking skills and experience. Also remember some little rules: look for some pleasant face in the audience, look over the audience, prepare yourself well, talk simply, understand that you can only talk on what you know not on some grand made-up design of yours, there are always others who are better than you, pray before you speak, and so on. Focus on the three areas of public speaking according to their importance: Presentation and appearance (20%), audience (30%), and content (50%). There are a lot more points but space constraints do not permit me to be more elaborate.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Psychologist,
Avoid junk, high sugar, caffeine, alcohol etc. Eat fresh healthy food like seasonal fruits and veggies, lean meats, eggs, whole grains, nuts, pulses to fill you up. Exercise regularly and sleep on time to get enough sleep. Relax in between to take your mind off the studies. Focus on what you are good at and learn it well. Time yourself and practice staying within the word limits. There are many ways to study smart rather than putting in more effort and time. Contact me privately if you are interested.
