You must meet with a counselor and sort out this fear. Because of your age, there may be childhood foundations for this fear. Your parents may be able to identify the contributing factors and could possibly attend the sessions together with you. If you neglect this now it may turn into paranoia, which can be worse. You are young enough to resolve this with good counseling help. In the meantime, you could do personality development course, public speaking course, personal grooming course, elocution courses, and definitely attend a gym and do some body building. These will help you to better your​ self-image, self-esteem, and self-confidence.

I am 53 year old women, suffering from depression for over 2 years. The trouble is more in mornings. Panic attacks are also there. Whenever my schedule of work and living changes it becomes more. Under the presumption of Menopause HRT treatment has been given with not much effect. Some homeopathic medicines have also been given. Meditation and yoga and exercises have been very meticulously tried. I travelled to India twice during this period. As soon as I land in India, whole trouble just disappears, as if it was never there. On landing back it remains OK for a few months (2-3) months and returns. There are no problems within family. Have excellent husband and in-laws and gifted daughter (16) and son (12), very loving too. Children are getting affected which is a serious concern. Any change in routine adversely affects. Please advise.

Hi lybrate-user even though you feel that you have a supporting family, your description of the problems suggests that there may be the following reasons for your problems 1. May be you have a sense of unconscious insecurity in places other than india, the place where you feel have you have your own people all around you 2. You may be experiencing feelings of loneliness primary because you may not be sharing your needs wants and experiences freely with you family members, may be because of time limitations or the assumption that your family members may not be interested in it 3. You may be taking too much of responsibility related to the family when you are along with them which may be creating stress in you and you are unable to find time for yourself or relax however what ever may be the cause cbt may be the best mode of therapy that can help you to handle the problem. So get in touch with a clinical psychologist practicing cbt at the earliest.

My exams are coming. And i am mt able to study because of distraction of my mind. I always feel alone. Feel like there is no meaning of my life. I m tensed about that i didn't get fail in my 12th class. What should I do? Please help me.

You have confused the question. Did you fail in the 12th? Are you attempting the exam again? At your age you will be distracted because of a spurt in the production of the sex hormone, testosterone. You have not lost your memory but some more pressing physiological changes related to your age have started demanding attention, that is all. I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night?s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too.

Effect of Psychiatric Illness on Family Members

Effect of Psychiatric Illness on Family Members

About the Illness 

Psychiatric illness can have a profound effect on the individual's family members. Psychiatric illness often has to be fought by the family members along with the affected person. For some families, the very thought and pressure of a member being diagnosed with a psychiatric imbalance can put additional strain on them. More often than not, it is the family members who opt for separate counseling sessions, to cope with this new stressor. Fear not, as you are not alone, and the feelings you feel are felt by millions worldwide, whenever they are needed to take care of a family member with such an illness. Let us look at a few instances of the impact that they can leave on you. 

Impact on a Parent 
Parents are the most affected, as they find it extremely hard to cope with a system that is not geared up to acknowledge them as a partner in the recovery process. Most times, parents blame themselves for the condition their child is in, and they require separate sessions too when taking care of an affected child. 

Impact on a Spouse 
The impact is more severe, as the illness places an unwanted strain on the relationship. The life which he /she would have imagined has been eroded, and in spite of the good nature a person has, this ultimately leads to frustration and a physical barrier between the spouses. Also, when frustration sets in, medical care can reduce - thus affecting the patient even more. 

Impact on an Offspring 

Sometimes, it is the other way around, when your parents are affected by a psychiatric condition, and when you are in the position of a caregiver. This can have long term damage, as the child will have to look for his career and his growth in the society, along with the additional job of having to take care of the parents. The older the person gets, the lonelier they feel, and sometimes, their only interaction would be with their sibling, if they have any. 

There are a number of ways by which you as a family member can take care of the affected person. 

  1. Always establish communication with them. Find a means by which you can effectively communicate with them. Use this communication pattern to gain their trust. 
  2. Never shy away from counseling sessions and professional help. These can go a long way in benefitting the affected individual. 
  3. Provide them a safety network. Always let them know that they can bank on you, and that you will always be around for them. Their treatment will be much more efficient once they know they are safe. 
  4. Give them time. You can always indulge in things they are interested about, and guide them. Once again make them feel safe to trust you. In summary, always remember that the illness affects you as a family member as much as it does the challenged person.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
