I am experiencing some behavioural problems. I've started talking to myself a lot these days. Though this is my habit for the past few years but has considerably increased these days. I've started started to keep everything up to me only. My social life is almost zero . Now I don't like meeting people even my frnds. It's like I've become over shy and over introvert. I've even tried to hurt myself a few times. The main problem is that I act scenarios which are far away from reality when I am alone. I get completely involved in it till the time the scenario exists. My sleep is almost normal. I sleep like I am unconscious at that time. I feel very low self confidence. Do I have a mental disorder?

Hi there ~ social anxiety disorder and social phobia symptoms, self-help, and treatment social anxiety, social anxiety disorder / social phobia: symptoms, types, causes, treatment, and support many people get nervous or self-conscious on occasion, like when giving a speech or interviewing for a new job. But social anxiety, or social phobia, is more than just shyness or occasional nerves. With social anxiety disorder, your fear of embarrassing yourself is so intense that you avoid situations that can trigger it. No matter how painfully shy you may be and no matter how bad the butterflies, you can learn to be comfortable in social situations and reclaim your life.

Your sexual attraction towards other males is not because of your thought process. It is probably because of your sexual inclination, or some childhood experience and it is your physical need. I can imagine that you are not comfortable accepting this fact. Actually, to find out whether you are gay or heterosexual, it is advisable to talk to a counsellor or a sexologist. Some encounters with males in you childhood does not make you gay, but now how you feel matters more. So please consult a counsellor or a sexologist. Till then do not get married, because you will not be happy in heterosexual marriage if you are gay. If in spite of knowing that you are getting attracted to males if you marry a girl, you will have trouble when she will find out. Once your sexuality is understood by you, you are likely to get rid you your depression and anxiety.

I am glad that you followed the doctor's advise even though it did not work. Even so you can still pick up the pieces and start afresh. My advice is for to seek counseling in tandem with the medication. It is grossly inadequate to rely on medication alone. Counseling will teach you a lot of coping skills and techniques to manage the daily challenges of life. This is a passive way to hope for recovery. You must be active and work towards your reformation. Many lifestyle changes need to be made to progress away for the condition. Then, if you go episode-free for three years under the combination of medicine and therapy, you could initiate weaning off of the medication gradually and under strict monitoring of the psychiatrist. But it is never too late, and now you have a clear agenda and time plan to resolve the depression. In the meantime please do the following: When you are depressed, you will feel lazy though I would like to call it lethargy. There is an inertia and lack of energy to even think, let alone act. You are required to literally do the opposite of what you feel like doing. Depression makes you want to withdraw, lie down, sleep, become lethargic, slow down, make you too lazy to even think etc. So when I suggested doing the opposite, you will need to fight this disease. 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, eat more of proteins and vegetables, 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. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved too. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, 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. Be prayerful too and trust that God will intervene too. Do not worry about your colleagues’ progress. You have been handicapped by this disease and your belief system due to this disease. Now go out there and win your battle: nothing is too late in life.

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

Hi I am 19 years and my parents forced and marry to my mom's own sister she is divorced and elder than me she is 34 years old and she has 4 children she gave divorced to her husband 4 months and marry me on our wedding night any how I know that I have to do sex with her she is my wife so my mom gave me a black cover inside it was condom so I got more excited and went into room she was already in room so when I went she was sleeping so I went to washroom then I take off my clothes and then I wake up her she got anger and said me what? So I said today is our wedding night she said I do not want children so I said we will do protected sex she dint listen so I forcedly I kissed her press her boobs she said me you will like this with your aunty so I said you are my wife she dint allow me to do sex with her she sleep and I also sleep like that only on next day morning I returned that black cover to my mom she shocked why what happened and she laughed without this you had so she came I said we dint do anything mom said why I said she is not allowing so mom said to my wife (aunty) that why dint you had she said I do not want children so I said in front of my mother I will do protected sex she said no so I said to my mom and to her first no one will marry 4 children mother so my mom said shut up to me and said today night you had so I said ok and then in night we went into room and I kiss her on lips she said do not kiss so I said why she said nothing so I think she do not like it and start pressing her boobs and put hand into her bra and started pressing she slapped me and said I am your aunty not your call girl to do like this so I said nothing so I said we will main thing she said ok closed light so I said why closed light she said again I am not your call girl closed light she lie down on bed and takeout her legging and she was wearing pamper she said me to help me in taking out her pamper so I said why did you wear pamper she said do not interfere my things she is not taking out her top just she take out her legging I dint even see her boobs and so I inserted my penis without condom she is not allowing me enter my penis completely and she is shouting loudly and I dint listen to her and start fucking her roughly and I left my sperm into her vagina I asked one more time she said no and sleep without wearing legging and then in morning when we both get up I asked for sex she no and she said I will get pregnant soon and went out so my was laughing and saying yesterday night mast bang bang so I said no only one time my parents spoiled my life what to do now should give divorce to her please say.

This is all like madness: who would agree to marry such an older woman, with four kids, and your own aunt at that and now you are trying to push your personal agenda of insisting on sex. These are things that should have been discussed when they proposed this marriage itself and the matter could have been sorted out. If you knew why you married her in the first place you could answer your question of whether you should divorce her or not. If you think you still can live with her in spite of all this, then give her some time and develop some feelings between you two first. Marriage is not all about sex and if you focus on the other dimensions of the relationship you may win her over to consensual consummation happily. To me, all this sounds wrong to begin with and your consenting to the marriage itself is a matter of concern of poor thinking. Since your mom had convinced you at the outset, ask her opinion, though I think I know her response already and to some extent, I think I know what your response will be too. You need to grow up and make decisions for yoruself, then you would be responsible for them.

This could be a symptom of underlying anxiety and panic about certain situations which you are not in control of. Please see a counsellor and psychiatrist to get your assessment and start the treatment. In the meantime start exercising every day so that you are able to manage stress better. Eat a high protein diet which helps in mood regulation and do yoga pranayama and meditation which helps immensely in anxiety and palpitations.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If your friend ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support she need, she can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless she feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that she have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for her actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. She should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need take her and stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

1. A person diagnosed with ocd, psychosis and multiple personality disorder was secretly given fludac 40 (mg) twice a day and risperidone (0.5 mg) as prescribed by the doctor (fludac for past 3 months and risperiodne for past week). Since not much effect is being seen, can risperidone dose be increased to 1 mg?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Patna
Dear thanks for asking your querry here. You concern is genuine. For psychosis the dose of risperidone is less. But the dose of fludac for ocd is ok. I am not aware about current psychotic symptoms of your brother. If still he has delusion or hallucoinations, you may ask for a review by his psychiatrist who may consider increasing the dose of risperidone.

had a great depression regarding life and always thinking of how to die. need an help plz

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You do not state any reason for this death wish. How old are you, anyway? 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. Something 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.

Lack of sleep is the most common cause. Too little restful sleep can also lead to mood changes and anxiety, which in turn can contribute to memory impairment.
Many drugs can affect memory, which includes tranquilizers, antidepressants, blood pressure drugs and anti–allergic drugs.
Low functioning thyroid can affect memory.
Drinking too much alcohol can interfere with short–term memory.
Stress and anxiety can lead to memory impairment. Both can interfere with attention and block the formation of new memory or retrieval of old memories.
Forgetfulness can be a sign of depression or a consequence of it.
