No one is worth dying for, period. Your life is in your hands and it is very precious. Good friendships should bring out the best in you. If this girl has moved on for some reason, you must learn to accept it gracefully. True intimacy is all about being comfortable when that person is both close to you and as well as when she moves away. This is the difference between attachment and bonding: the former can be made with anybody and anything too - it is typically based on insecurity and your behavior will be clingy. Whereas bonding is based on security and it can be made only with a human being, which is normally with the mother, primarily. You may have suffered problems of attachment with your mother and so will find it difficult to bond. Please work with a counselor to resolve that and then you will feel better. Leave this girl alone and learn if there was anything you did to push her away, like clingy behavior. Then change that and you will make good rapport with people.

6 Signs of Avoidant Personality Disorder, 2nd Most Common Psychiatric Disorder

What is avoidant personality disorder?

Feelings of inadequacy for long durations and being extremely sensitive to what others think of you is a disorder called avoidant personality disorder symptom. Such feelings of inadequacy in turn push the person to become isolated from the society and the person avoids people, work, and other activities. Social and occupational functioning is affected as the person is extremely sensitive and has very low self-esteem. Symptoms of avoidant personality disorder are:

1. Avoiding social interactions: people suffering from this disorder avoid almost all sorts of interpersonal contact since they lie with the fear of rejection, disapproval and criticism.

2. Avoiding risks: they avoid taking personal risks or being involved in activities which seem new, because they fear that they will embarrass themselves.

3. Socially unplugged: they are not willing to get involved with individuals unless they are absolutely certain of being liked by the person.

4. Preoccupied with negative perception: the idea of being criticized or rejected in social functions is so deep within their psyche that they are often preoccupied with only this thought in their minds.

5. Inferiority complex: people suffering from avoidant personality disorder consider themselves as good for nothing, unappealing, and inferior to everyone else.

6. Avoid intimacy: they are always reluctant to get into intimate relationships because they feel that they will be shamed and ridiculed. Because of such fears, they let go of relationships where they would have been genuinely cherished too.

The only treatment possible for this disorder is psychotherapy. While some people opt for long term therapy, most people usually visit a psychotherapist only when they feel overwhelmed with their fear and emotions.

Is medication good for psychosis? If not what is the alternative?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist
Ask Free Question
Medication is absolutely good and necessary for treating psychosis. There is no alternative but you will need to combine counseling or psychotherapy along with the medicines. Psychosis is a problem of imbalance in the chemical production or processing of the same in the brain. In very rare cases, in institutional settings, in very intense one-to-one therapy, it has been claimed that there has been erratic success to get the brain to produce the same chemicals to compensate the loss or gain. People have resorted to black magic to undo the spells that they believed has cast them into such states; and religious superstitions that have only worsened the condition. The advancements in medicine have improved to a large extent to contain most conditions. It is the naive who sometimes mess the situation by other approaches that it worsens the psychosis to a chronic and irreparable state. The plight of the individual is doomed forever.

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.

Dear lybrate user, about your habit of checking wallet often, it appears like ocd - means obsessive compulsive disorder. A person with ocd keeps repeating his actions very often, unnecessarily. And many times it is beyond the person's control. About your anxiety to talk to new people or about costly gifts, more exploration anout your thoughts and feelings is required. For your both problems, you need to have some behavioral therapy. Hence, please seek help from a counsellor.

Do You Feel DEPRESSED Often? Stay Away from These 4 Things!

Suffering from depression - Avoid these

Depression is a psychological condition that can drain your hope, energy and drive. The things that you once rejoiced might not be pleasurable anymore. Meanwhile, overcoming depression isn't quick or easy and it is recommended that you opt for counselling or professional support to help you through. At the same time, you need to avoid these practices, which tend to increase the intensity of depressive symptoms.

These are the things you should avoid while suffering from depression.

1. Avoid Staying Alone: When you are depressed, you might not feel pleasure in things you used to enjoy earlier. This might result in social isolation, making you lonelier and more depressed than ever. But living in social situations, meeting people will actually help you. It can take off your mind from the feelings of depression and while meeting people might not seem as enjoyable as it did before, it can certainly help in overcoming the feelings of loneliness.

2. Avoid NOT Seeking Help: Most of the people are unable to differentiate between sadness and depression. But if you are someone who has been feeling intensely sad for no reason, then you are probably depressed. So, don't avoid seeking help. Approach a therapist, even online if you want more confidentiality and privacy. A counsellor can actually help in overcoming the feeling of depression.

3. Avoid White Foods: Processed foods or white foods are simple carbohydrates that can actually lead to insulin dumping and trigger the process of depression. The surge of insulin will initially make you feel happier, but once that's surge goes down, you will begin to feel depressed again. This will even trigger hunger and particular cravings, which in turn affect depression symptoms negatively.

4. Products with Aspartame: Aspartame can lower the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that's associated with mood. Therefore, eating aspartame can increase the intensity of your depression symptoms, may result in insomnia as well.

You can expect some hormonal imbalance when you get pregnant. Crying could be because of this. See a gynaecologist for this. If you have any emotional problems and you didn't want this pregnancy or are going through other stress, then you need to learn to manage the stress and make the best of it. Remember that if you plan to keep the baby then your emotional state will have an impact on it too. If you have any queries about this please contact me on private chat.

Hi lybrate-user, sit comfortably. Take a long, deep breath and exhale it slowly while saying the word" relax" silently. Close your eyes. Let yourself take ten natural, easy breaths. Count down with each exhale, starting with" ten. This time, while you are breathing comfortably, notice any tensions, perhaps in your jaw or forehead or stomach. Imagine those tensions loosening. When you reach" one, open your eyes again. Do this exercise for panic attack and seek psychotherapy from psychologist.
