I am having very extreme social anxiety. Infact I can not even look at people Because I fear I will hurt them By looking in an indecent way. But when my mood is good and happy I can look at persons but beneath my mind I knew that my bad mood is coming and this effect is going to last. Doctor can pranayama and meditation can help free of social anxiety for 3 hrs (Exam period).
Hi, feeling very depressions feeling like wants to be alone and faded with life any suggestion please.
I have breathing problem during night. Most of the time it feels like I am not able to breathe at all and might die due to lack of oxygen. But actually I am breathing normally and it is just what I feel strongly in my mind which is actually causing me a problem. What should I do to avoid such suffocation feeling.
My father is used to alcohol not much but daily 2-3 pegs of 50 ml each. We are afraid of health. Do you think there can b some severe problem?
Sir, I am too serious about my career. I also take small small things into pressure. If anyone angry on me I felt that I am looser. I am not angry person. I can't raise my voice against wrong decisions of any one related to me. I am afraid of unknown people. I can't easily phase unknown people specifically if he/she is at higher position like managed or head or boss and also can't raise my voice if they are wrong. But in my mind I fill same on me and I thought on the topics which are related to my career again and again. I feel anxious sometime and sometime it feels that the attack will come on my heart. My mind never thought to go behind because I was average as student. But in my class all are toppers. They doing well in each and every work. But I can't study and work like them. So many time I insulted by my professors in my bachelor of engineering career. So I am very judgmental about my career and do not accept thing easolily and thinking about them again and again. I completed my 4 years of bachelor of engineering with lots of fear because I am average student. But I proved my self I will tolerate but not claim any issue against any bad thing it is my big Problem. I want to achieve highest education I wat be like other professionals in any way. I am vey anxious about it. But I am afraid of unknown people. I can't easily interact with them. I feel that he/she will avoid me and also angry on me. After that o feel like rejection. Due to this sometime I leave all my tension of study one side and go with my some naugty friends of my society. So that I feel happy. But it is for some time. Then I also think that this is not original happiness. original happiness is what I achieve in my life. Sometime I want to do nothing and want to sleep whole day but this is also very scary. I feel lik I have nothing to do. I thought that how others will remain home at homw whole day. I can't sit at home without any work. I always want to busy in work. But the work should be respective. But I am in this condition that I have no direction but I want to do it. I want to be person like shahrukh khan comedy and also successful. But in my life it is not possible. Because I always seem people who are stand first and also their behaviour is alway boss type. So I always feeling loose against them. I want to tell much more but I can't explain you. Now a days I started to hear brahmakumairs lectures. I am attracted towards their views about life. But same way I also feel that if I am not feel fear I can't do any work and only I will enjoy the tv and sleep. So acc to my view career and peace of mind both important. But I can't make mak it balanced. I am very judgmental. I also feel that others are bigger than me in any profession. So I always feel weak and fear with them and also give respect to them every time. Now I will stop. Please give me solutions of all my problems. I always feels difficulty from my childhood every time. I also feel that there is some mistake in my janam kundali may be. But provide me solution. So I will success and not become so judgmental.
Dissociation identity disorder (did), previously known as multiple personality disorder (mpd) is a mental disorder characterized by at least two distinct and relatively enduring identities or dissociated personality states that alternately show in a person's behavior, accompanied by memory impairment for important information not explained by ordinary forgetfulness.
Let me explain this in a simple way.
Example 1- lets say there is Mr. X and Mr. Y. Mr. X is very impressed by the personality of Mr. Y. So he starts liking him. He also tries to sepnd more time with him. He may with time start copying him or seek his help. This problem become so severe that after some time, in a flash Mr. X wakes up and become a copy of Mr. Y. However Mr. X cannot forget that he is actually Mr. X and not Mr. Y. Thus, Mr. X has developed a split personality where he and Mr. Y co exist. This may with time lead to further mental health deterioration such as depression, loss of memory, personality changes, mania, psychosis, antisocial behavior and above all a loss of control and insight in ones life.
Example 2- Mr. X may not be impressed with Mr. Y. But here it's the reverse. Mr. Y is impressed by Mr. X and wants to be a part of Mr. X s personality. He forces himself on Mr. X until he becomes a part of Mr. X. Therefore Mr. Y has been successful in forcing himself on Mr. X although Mr. X wanted to distance himself form Mr. Y but could not due to various reasons.
Example 3- this problem does not need to be confined to just 2 people. Any number of people can force themselves on Mr. X depending on his plotters and schemers. Therefore Mr. X loses his mental health and his personality becomes broken into several pieces which have been thrust on him.
Some people tend to do this voluntarily because of the fact that they like Mr. Y possessions but in most cases people are victimized into this as they are struggling to make ends meet in their lives. The result is agony, despair, loss of self control. An annihilating world and an end full of shame and contempt because of loss of control depending on how erroneous Mr. Y and his associated are.
Many marriages have been broken because of their spouses developing mpd. Spouses who were happy with each other, suddenly turn hostile and throw them out of their lives because they are now possessed with Mr. Y s who are interested in other spouses than their own. Many children also loose their parents love and care because their parents are no longer interested in them and they desert them or send them to boarding schools.
This disease is a social evil and a menace to a justful society. But the stress on taking precaution lies with us.
People diagnosed with did often report that they have experienced severe physical and sexual abuse, especially during early to mid-childhood, and others report an early loss, serious medical illness or other traumatic event. They also report more historical psychological trauma than those diagnosed with any other mental illness. Severe sexual, physical, or psychological trauma in childhood has been proposed as an explanation for its development; awareness, memories and emotions of harmful actions or events caused by the trauma are removed from consciousness, and alternate personalities or sub-personalities form with differing memories, emotions and behavior.
As of 2011, approximately 250 cases of did in children have been identified,
Problems with diagnosis
People with did are diagnosed with five to seven comorbid disorders on average much higher than other mental illnesses. Due to overlapping symptoms, differential diagnosis includes schizophrenia, normal and rapid-cycling bipolar disorder, epilepsy, borderline personality disorder, and asperger syndrome. Delusions or auditory hallucinations can be mistaken for speech by other personalities. Persistence and consistency of identities and behavior, amnesia, measures of dissociation or hypnotizability and reports from family members or other associates indicating a history of such changes can help distinguish did from other conditions. A diagnosis of did takes precedence over any other dissociation disorders.
Common treatment methods include an eclectic mix of psychotherapy techniques, including cognitive behavioral therapy hypnotherapy and medications can be used for comorbid disorders and/or targeted symptom relief. Some behavior therapists initially use behavioral treatments such as only responding to a single identity, and then use more traditional therapy once a consistent response is established. Brief treatment due to managed care may be difficult, as individuals diagnosed with did may have unusual difficulties in trusting a therapist and take a prolonged period to form a comfortable therapeutic alliance. Regular contact (weekly or biweekly) is more common, and treatment generally lasts years not weeks or months. Sleep hygiene has been suggested as a treatment option,
Individuals diagnosed with did may accuse others of abuse but lack objective evidence and base their accusations solely on regular or recovered memories. There are questions regarding the civil and political rights of alters, particularly which alter can legally represent the person, sign a contract or vote. Finally, individuals diagnosed with did who are accused of crimes may deny culpability due to the crime being committed by a different identity state.
