Bipolar disorder is an episodic disorder, if you had manic symptoms of bipolar, you may have lost insight and behaved irrationally. Else, in acute psychosis (symptoms similar to schizophrenia), the same would have happened. Surely there are chances of recurrence. Review with psychiatrist regularly. Hope he explained relapse cues, so that you can consult early in case symptoms recur.

We all have to face ups and downs in life. I can imagine that at 42 when you have two young children, how difficult it must be for you to face the current financial situation. But have faith in yourself. Make a list of all the good qualities that you have, on a paper. Stick that paper at a place where you can see it everytime. Once you know your strengths or good qualities, start exploring various options to earn money. You may think of starting tuitions if you are good at teaching any subject. May start some art/music classes if you are good at it. May start some food stall, if you are interested etc etc. There are a number of options. Choose something that will suit you in the long run, and which you can start with minimum or no capital. Actually you can talk to your kids about new ideas, they may give you some good idea. Don't lose hope. Have faith in your abilities and make consistent and sincere efforts. No situation is permanent in life. Hence, this difficult time will also pass. Wish you good luck.

Marriage and profession coz you really love him as you r still in a marriage.

You should go to a dental clinic for physical examination to find out the cause of the disease, because treatment depends upon the cause. May have gingival hyperplasia in this disease gums get enlarged. Gingivectomy is the treatment after confirmed diagnosis.

Are You a New Mommy - Know How You Can Beat the Stress!

Are You a New Mommy - Know How You Can Beat the Stress!

It is common to go nuts when your newborn begins moaning! You'd need to have the nerves of a bomb-squad professional not to give it a chance to get to you. In any case, with a little experience, that is exactly what you'll create (or near it).

Likewise, don't accept that your baby is crying since she's genuinely tragic or upset. "It's anything but difficult to feel along these lines since that is the reason we cry. Nonetheless, newborn children do it to impart a wide range of things - that they're drained, icy, wet, exhausted, hungry, or overstimulated. Instead of stressing that something is truly wrong, consider crying her method for conversing with you." As you build up a routine with your baby, you'll slowly have the capacity to make sense of what she needs just by the sound of her cries.

Numerous new moms may feel overpowered and ponder:

Take comfort; numerous new moms feel a similar way. These worries are basic and superbly ordinary. You can find a way to deal with the stretch of being another mother.

  1. Rest: Get as much rest as you can, wherever and at whatever point you can. Rest when the baby dozes. Get a brisk rest in the traveler's seat amid an auto ride.

  2. Eat Healthy Foods: The right foods can give you more vitality. Do whatever it takes not to overburden on caffeine. Rather, eat healthy foods and drink lots of water.

  3. Work out: You might not have sufficient energy to do long workouts. In any case, even a couple of minutes here and there spread for the duration of the day can help you have more vitality! Take baby for a walk.

  4. Expect an influx of emotions: Absence of rest, included stretch and stress can abandon you having an inclination that you're on an exciting ride of emotions all around the same time. Relax because of realizing that you're not the only one! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

I have been experiencing anxiety, mainly repetitive palpitations throughout the day, since the last 5 months. I have always been a slightly anxious person but never had such palpitations. It all started with an incident last December and since then I have been on clonazepam for a while. Then discontinued it because of the addictive nature. Currently am on sertraline 100 mg, Chlordiazepoxide 10 mg and Desvenlafaxine 50 Mg. I feel quite good while I am taking these. But once I am off them, I feel the same again in some days. How long will they take to show some long lasting effects. Should I take Chlordiazepoxide for more than a month, cause it's been two months already and it's working quite well?

Lybrate user. You are working on effects of anxiety but how about working on main cause of it. As you already know that it has started from an incident in past so why it has created such impact need to work on that. With medication if you do counselling and psychotherapy you will b able to see the change fast. Metaphor therapy works very good to overcome past issues.

Dear lybrate user just like physical health it is also very important to maintain mental health. Boost your wellbeing and stay mentally healthy by following a few steps 1) connect with others - develop and maintain strong relationships with people around you who will support you and enrich your life. 2) being a part of group of people with a common interest provides a sense of belonging and is good for your mental health. Join a club, evening walking group, dance class, book club. 3) deal with stress - beawre of what triggers your stress and how you react. Stress is part of life and affect people in different ways. A balanced lifestyle can help you manage stress. 4) do relaxation, breathing yoga and meditation. 5) challenge yourself - learn a new skill take on challenge. To meet a goal. Commit yourself to achieve fitness goal. 6) learn how to understand emotions.--it is important to be aware of what you are feeling. Learning yourself is key part of having mental health.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I can understand what you must be going through. Overthinking, negative thoughts are suggesting of underlying depressive and anxiety disorder. You should consult a psychiatrist and get yourself evaluated completely. Depression and anxiety disorders respond well to treatment. Medications and psychotherapy will help you recover. In addition, start exercising daily. Start writing diary daily in order to vent out your feelings and emotions. I do hope that you recover completely. Best wishes.

I have a phobia which scare me to get into the enclosed places such as Lift, metro rail and closed room if some lock from outside. When i lock from inside there is no problem. I have cervical problem also. Please guide me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Phobias are fear-based problems where you exaggerate the stimulus to very frightful proportions. You have very high level of fear which you are not dealing with properly. You will need to meet with a counselor to identify that and find ways to counter it effectively. Now because of that fear you explain it rather clearly that if you are in control, the phobia is less: like closing the door from inside gives you control, whereas if it is shut from the outside you have no control. As a result you may have control issues too. The cervical problem could be stress induced - all connected to the scare. Fear is such a common human trait that there have been special schools devoted to the study and understanding of it. You are not alone but do reach out and resolve this soon for you to enjoy a normal and peaceful life.

*Try to keep to a regular timing for going to bed*Avoid fried and heavy foods. Eat early and light food at night so that the food is almost digested by the time you go to bed. *Prefer fruits and green vegetables. *Fix daily work schedule and be busy with your work. Don’t keep pending problems in mind. Note down the points and leave them for next day’s action. *Don’t do stimulating mental work or keep watching TV which can keep your mind agitated or active. This will not allow you to sleep. LCD screen will also have adverse effect. *Day’s physical exercise makes you tired and induces sleep. *A warm bath in the evening will also be helpful. *Low volume music also induces sleep. *Keep your bed room neat, dark and cool. You may cover your eyes with bed sheet. *Drink plenty of water during the day rather than toward bedtime. *Don’t have stimulating drinks like tea or coffee Drinking a glass of milk before going to bed is fine. The problem can be treated by homeopathy and without adverse effects. Take Nux vomica 200 twice daily. For further help,you may opt for private consultation. (Prime Rs. 149/)
