What is the mental disorder? And How can we solve the problem of mental disorder?
Hi lybrate-user, Mental disorders refers to a wide range of mental health conditions — disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behavior. They affect your day to day activities adversely. It is a problem when it causes frequent stress and affect your ability to function. There are various kinds of Mental disorders like Schizophrenia, Bipolar mood disorder, Depression, anxiety etc. Signs and symptoms of mental illness can vary, depending on the disorder, circumstances and other factors. Mental illness symptoms can affect emotions, thoughts and behaviors. Examples of signs and symptoms include: Feeling sad or down Confused thinking or reduced ability to concentrate Excessive fears or worries, or extreme feelings of guilt Extreme mood changes of highs and lows Withdrawal from friends and activities Significant tiredness, low energy or problems sleeping Detachment from reality (delusions), paranoia or hallucinations Inability to cope with daily problems or stress Trouble understanding and relating to situations and to people Alcohol or drug abuse Major changes in eating habits Sex drive changes Excessive anger, hostility or violence Suicidal thinking Sometimes symptoms of a mental health disorder appear as physical problems, such as stomach pain, back pain, headache, or other unexplained aches and pains. Your treatment depends on the type of mental illness you have, its severity and what works best for you. In many cases, a combination of treatments works best. Although psychiatric medications don't cure mental illness, they can often significantly improve symptoms. Psychiatric medications can also help make other treatments, such as psychotherapy, more effective. The best medications for you will depend on your particular situation and how your body responds to the medication.

Hi there ~ Dealing with Depression Depression drains your energy, hope, and drive, making it difficult to do what you need to feel better. But while overcoming depression isn’t quick or easy, it’s far from impossible. You can’t just will yourself to “snap out of it,” but you do have more control than you realize—even if your depression is severe and stubbornly persistent. The key is to start small and build from there. Feeling better takes time, but you can get there if you make positive choices for yourself each day. do yoga and exercise , sleep well

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

My husband smoke's 4-5 cigarette s daily, if I ask him to stop he will shout at me, how should I make him quit smoking?

Dear user. I can understand. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, quitting tobacco is not easy. There are de-addiction therapies available along with nicotine lozenges and nicotine gums. These treatment methods are effective in the beginning but the relapse percentage is always high. The best and proven method is to quit today and now. Quit smoking habit now and sustain it with the help of self motivation and will power. Motivation therapy and will power building therapy could help you. Take care.

I am 27 years old, I'm very upset with my sudden changing behavior, like when I am in a good mood and everything goes fine, then my behavior will remain calm, polite and sweet with others and my near ones, but if anybody speaks anything which is not relevant according to me or I can say, which is not in my favor or may be he/she is wrong and I am right or vice a versa, then my behavior my mood suddenly gets changed and I am full of anger, which is intolerable or unmanageable for me as well as for my parents to make me calm and handle me. Whenever I am in anger, my anger is always at a glance, that sometimes I also don't know what I am doing at that time, I throw things here and there like this. My mom and me also, also worried that she think how can you survive with others once you'll get marry. Dr. Please help me and give me some best out of best tips in order to get rid from my aggression. Thanks.

These switching moods are not a good sign and you must therefore visit a counselor first and if that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor then you must. I also suggest that you take your parents along because they will be able to throw light on any past events in childhood that may have contributed to this development. I hope this was a recent phenomenon because then the possibilities for change are good. In counseling, which incidentally will be a long term intervention, you will learn of a lot of ways to cope with life and make adjustments that are essential for normal living. Emotional therapy will alleviate a lot of the problems faced in this condition because it is a mood disorder. You must exercise regularly, eat healthily and sleep normally too. When you exercise vigorously the energy of the anger will be expelled and you will feel anger minus the force, and therefore it will be easier to manage. If your motivation and cooperation is good much can be achieved. You must have a time-structured schedule filled with interesting and reasonable activities and it must be monitored for compliance and delivery. If you are put on medication then the combination of medication with therapy must be maintained for at least three years without any episodes or breakdowns: after that it is possible to taper the medication in consonance with the doctor.

Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Hi, I am 25 years old. I have problems with most of things. I frequently have problems with whatever my parents say. I have frequent fights with my boyfriend. All for the reasons that I think are right. I want people not to disturb me in anyway. shouting of parents, ignorance from loved ones, indifference of people, if somebody disturb my sleep. I get extremely angry and I shout at them, bang doors. Cancel functions etc. I am an HSP. I am light sleeper. I am literature student. I have family problems. I can't adjust with people. Especially I can't share room with anyone. When that happens I go hopelessly irritated. I go frequently angry, gloomy so on. I also have PMS. No other health disorders. When everything happens according to my wish and will, am cheerful and extremely joyful. What must be done? I have anxiety disorders and I get up in the mornings with pounding heart. Most days this happens.

You sound lie someone who is scared but acting angry. Scared people want everything to be under thier control, and so anyone can come along and easily disturb you if they disrupt your system. It can be so bad that you will become vulnerable to others. Because you want to control, you will believe that you are always right! If you go back into your childhood and perhaps with some help from your parents, you could probably find out what happened for you to become this disturbed with fear. That information will be very useful to a counselor to assist you in dealing with this problem. We are all social animals and need each other. If you feel the opposite of this it is not human and so you will have to cultivate friendships and you are not to control them either. If you deal with your fear a lot of your issues will get happily resolved. You should never ever escalate anger over the fear: no one will realise what is going on and everyone will instead get easily irritated with you. You need the help of a counselor not doubt.

I want to stop drinking alcohol and I want stop smoking also please give suggestion.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must, on a war footing, exercise restraint and stop the use of all these substances. Since you have probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest you do one of the following: It sounds like you are in an advanced stage of alcoholism and tobacco use and need admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by yourself because you have become addicted to alcohol and tobacco and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that you admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that you can attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. you will have a serious reaction, if you consume even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that you do not only consume the medication but you are also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. If you are not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick you up, after you are completely drunk, and admit you by force. This will however, require the wife and family’s consent. Do not delay for any reason and stop fooling around with half decisions.

Sounds to me like you are into an anger related depression. If you have not been on medication and you want to remain so, you will have to work very hard to recover from this condition. You must first of all seek the help of a counselor, ideally. If that person thinks that you need to meet with a doctor you will need to do so and cooperate right through. 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 scotching 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: find someone to love and to love you back, if you are not already married. 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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.

Dear lybrate-user, before meeting a toxicologist, please consult a psychiatrist. Sometimes people develop a delusion of poisoning when they are severely depressed. You have other symptoms of depression, anxiety, dizziness, fear, confusion, dry mouth, nausea, shivering, weight loss, etc. You are neurologically ok, it looks from investigations. Please let me know what medicine, in what dose, for how long. He/she prescribed and for how long you have taken them. Please remember that antidepressants act only at a particular dose and it takes 2-3 weeks to act.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are right to refuse her and you must keep far away from her as you could be a huge temptation for her. She is far older than you and her libido may be stimulated to high levels making it difficult for her to contain herself. She should ideally seek to get married and settle down in life. You have so many other things to do in life and cannot be caught up with this situation, which can bring a lot of disturbances in your scheme of things in life. Please focus on your career and academics. This can be very difficult especially at your age but it is certainly not a welcome distraction.
