I would suggest you to first consult a psychologist. Regular counselling therapy will help you better manage your emotions. You will also be able to learn to respond in a more mature and positive way to situations which currently triggering anger and sadness. If your psychologist feels that you need to go on medication then she will send you to psychiatrist. Even if you need to start medicine continue your sessions with psychologist. This will help you reduce and eventually stop medicines. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

You are suffering from anxiety disorder and Flight Phobia. You also know that this kind of fear is mostly irrational, it is a fear of escape from the flight if something unwanted events happens. millions of people are travelling by flight daily. Flight is one of the most safest mode of transport in comparison to other transport. There are more accidents on ground than on the air. So nothing to scared. During flight close your eyes, take deep and long breathe. Try to relax on board by hearing some relaxation music. Hope everything will be okay....Have a safe journey... Thanks.

I like a girl working at my workplace. But I came to know that she has already a boyfriend. But still I can't change my feelings. I try everything to make her happy. But she wants me to stay away from her. Once I left talking to her or looking towards her. But it was hard time for me yet I was doing it for her sake. And now she came again to me asking an another help in her personal life. I did what I could and was happy again. But after her problem got over. She again started ignoring me. Whenever I swear not to think about her. She presents to me with a new problem seeking for help. When I help her, it gives me an incredible pleasure but when she ignores me. I be depressed. Is there something wrong with me? Should I have any clinical cure? Please help me.

Hi lybrate-user, sure she is using you and has no real feeling for you. Sometimes people take advantage of our kindness. Don't think about her in terms of potential partner take her as a colleague that's it. Don't fulfill her demands or favors that she seeks from you, otherwise it will lead to you emotional exploitation. Why go after someone who is already committed when there are so many single girls out there. Consult for therapy, you need some guidance with this issue. All the best.

Hi, I am very depressed from last 4-5 months and even taken medicines for stress and depression as well. It was ok for some time when i took one month break but after joining the work it again started, I am thinking so much negative and always think to quit job and sit idle or change the carrier where there is less pressure. I don't know, very confused in the life now. Please advice. Thanks.

You better consult a good homoeopath for this. Because depressed patients need to be cured as a person.Not as a patient to the doctor.This may happen to you may be because of you may not be able to handle loads of work together.Or may be another reason.

What Is Parental Depression? How to Support Each Other?

Panchkula & Delhi
Mother and Child Care, Panchkula
What Is Parental Depression? How to Support Each Other?

Parental Depression is an aspect which affects the innocent child, right from the time it is in the mother's womb.

Maternal depression could be due to various reasons ranging from familial disharmony to poor health. Unfortunately, a depressed mother's pessimistic thoughts could pass on to the pure soul inside her. So the effect starts in utero. After birth, she may be careless and negligent towards a child whose most important requirement is love. And children of these mothers become victims of behavioral and cognitive problems and poor school performers. They may also acquire the illness of depression eventually.

A depressed father will display stress and agitation instead of engaging the young minds in interesting learning or other activities.

Hence, before stepping into parenthood, it's important to be mentally fit and not just physically healthy. Exercise and meditation is of great help and of course a happy home environment.

Supporting each other is the key to getting things on track again.

  • Talk to your spouse: Chat with your spouse, showing affection, doing things with them and encouraging them to get out of the house are important.
  • Appreciate her but respect your family: Help her see that the family needs her and appreciates that she is expecting. While doing the same ensure that you respect the feelings of your family members.
  • Opt for specialist care: Offer to see a therapist and encourage her to take medications. Getting the help of an expert helps get guidance to handle difficult situations.
  • Be emotionally present with her: Go with her to as many antenatal checkups as you can, and make sure you are there for the ultrasound scans. This encourages a woman and gives her the satisfaction that her partner is involved.
  • Compliment her and pay attention to her: Many women find it difficult to cope with the changes in their body during pregnancy. She may be worried about stretch marks, concerned about weight gain or just be feeling not much like her old self. Make sure to compliment her and let her know how much you love her.
  • Be a shoulder for her to cry on: Listen to all of her concerns, and offer her the reassurance and support she really needs.
  • Be there to help: After the birth, your partner will need time to recover. She will be exhausted, sore and hormonal, and will be relying on you for support. Help with the baby, and do as much as you can.

Stage fear happens to everyone, even those accustomed to public speaking. One of the ways to overcome it is to rehearse whatever you are going to talk about. Try rehearsing in front of the mirror. You will become aware of your body language and expressions, and will learn how to improve on them. Frequent rehearsals before any event will help you. Other than that, free yourself from the burden of other people's opinions. Not everyone has the courage to get up on stage and speak, but anyone can sit in audience and mock the speaker. Be indifferent to other's criticism, and only focus on improving yourself. If anxiety is overwhelming and you find yourself feeling low even things are going well, consult a psychiatrist. Medication can be prescribed to help with that. Also try some deep breathing techniques, especially before going on stage. Other than all this, indulge in some enjoyable activity and exercise everyday. You can consult me further, if required.

Pedophilia: Mental Disorder Resulting In Child Sexual Abuse

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Pedophilia: Mental Disorder Resulting In Child Sexual Abuse

Pedophilia is an unnatural or abnormal attraction towards children of either or both sexes, usually aged thirteen years or younger. A pedophile's attraction towards adults varies. They fantasize and/or act on their fantasies with children who have not reached puberty. Pedophilia is one of the most common paraphilia (abnormal sexual desires). The DSM i. E. Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders has included pedophilia as a mental disorder.

Here are a few facts about the disorder:

1. Pedophilic disorder is when pedophiles approach children to sexually gratify themselves or if desires towards children make them feel guilty and anxious and so, they alienate themselves from the society and are unable to achieve their personal goals.

2. One very important fact that one must keep in mind is that not all pedophiles molest children and not all child molesters are pedophiles. When one desires children, they are pedophilic. But only when they act on their desires, and sexually assault children, they are child molesters.

3. Since most pedophiles do not come forward or admit to having sexual desires towards children, most of the studies have been conducted on the pedophilic child molesters. However, the number of pedophiles is vast considering that there are about 4 million websites in business catering to child pornography.

4. Opening up and seeking help from a psychologist or psychiatrist might help them in curbing and managing these desires and prevent them from acting on them and committing sexual offenses. In rare cases, pedophiles are also prescribed medications to lower their sex drive.

5. Male pedophiles are far more common than female ones.

6. Most of the child sex offenders are family and relatives.

7. Psychologists believe that children who are lonely and aloof, and feel neglected are at a higher risk of being sexually abused. The type of activities differs in each case, while some just undress and look at a child, others force the child to take part and perform oral sex and/or touch the genitals or more.

8. In most countries, it is mandatory to report a pedophile to the authorities even when there is no risk, which is why most pedophiles do not come forward and admit having this disorder. They refrain from seeking help.

However, there is a prevention project dunkelfeld in Germany that provides free of cost services to people who are attracted to children, but are dedicated to not to act on their desires and molest children. This program maintains its members' confidentiality. Such programs are essential for a healthy society.

I am a 18 old male and have low memory power for last 3 months. What should I do.?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear , the best method to improve your concentration, memory power and recollection etc is to use your brain creatively again and again. Doing number puzzles, creative hobies like painting, games like chess etc can sharpen your brain and improve concentration. Exercise plays an important part in sharpening the brain and in many aspects of memory. Nutritious food including green vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals and pulses are beneficial. Alcohol, nicotine, drugs, coffee, red meat etc are not that good for sharpening brain and memory power. Being happy and cheerful also contributes positively. You may ask a private question to me for more information. Take care.

Please rush to a psychiatrist without delay. Take your parents with you because the doctor will want to know your entire history from prenatal days. You have already delayed by two years, and must not postpone any further. Normally, serious breakdowns happen during late adolescence looking for a resolution, for the final time. Please follow the prescriptions recommended by the doctor and simultaneously seek some counseling. Life is very precious, and if this condition persists, your very survival may be in question. Please do not entertain any self-inflicting thoughts in your mind, ever. When you do have those ideas, please call a professional at once.

You should meet with a counselor and get some help with your emotions and how to deal with them. For your sleep problem please follow the recommendations mentioned below: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.
