Hello doctor I have a question from you about my cousin and he is about 20 years old. He is well and fit physically but due to some unavoidable natural misfortune he got orphan at the age of 15 and from five years yet he is very disturbed physiologically and continuously in deep stress. I have a also pity and sympathy for him. The question is from about five to six month his behaviour is strange and abnormal. He often times does like a complete mad, after some times he becomes as usual. Please tell me what should be done to reduce his stress and to vanish his that memory of those incident from his mind. And to make his livehood better. Thanks and will be waiting for reply.
I am a 20 year old male. From the past 2-3 years I have been having a problem where I would feel that everybody is constantly looking at me and judging me negatively. From the last 1 year I have started panicking. Whenever I go out I feel that everyone is judging me, when I interact with people I constantly think that they must be thinking this and that about me and I try to be nicer and nicer to them which harms sometimes because they dominate me. Life is a hellhole. How do I solve this?

I have a fear of haircuts, I can't get one and can't see others having the same. The feeling of water sprayed or someone touching or combing my hair terrifies me. I got my last one around 11 years back. I don't lik people around me saying about the health or personal problem of girls. These things depress me alot and make me go cry. Whensoever some speaks it makes an awkward feeling in my body. What can I do? These things are dominating my life .I don't think if I will ever be able to marry in my life. I can't tell my parents or anyone about this. I have fear .I fear. I need help if some body can help in the treatment.
Hey, i'm 18 years n frm last one year n so I've been facing nausea. Most of it is because of anxiety n stress due to studies. I feel nauseous all the time without any reason like after a meal or even drinking water. Also it might be due to my change in sleep cycle, usually I go to sleep late at 3-4 am many a times even 6-7 am. Bt its over an year n im still not able to get rid of it. Recently that problem increased n its kinda difficult to handle as when im in public or crowed place or with friends n even my classes. Most of the time I get them because of anxiety. But now its like regular like ik im gonna feel nauseous. I temporarily use fennel seeds or mints to reduce it. Bt still its difficult every time to put shampoo or mints in your mouth some places or situations. How can I fix it permanently. please help. Thank you.
We all have mood swings but not all mood swings have the same intensity. People who have extreme mood swings ranging from depression to manic highs are said to be suffering from bipolar disorder. These extreme moods are known as episodes and usually, last for a few days or even a few weeks. A person suffering from bipolar disorder could have an episode several times a year. This is a very common psychological problem and can affect both children and adults. Though it cannot be cured, this disease can be managed with medication.
There are no known causes for bipolar disorder but genetics may play an important role in triggering Bipolar Disorder. Hence, if a parent or sibling suffers from this condition, you have a risk of developing it as well. An imbalance in the neurotransmitters in the brain may also play a part in the development of this condition. Stress or traumatic events like the loss of a loved one can also increase your risk of suffering from this condition. Given that mood swings affect almost each one of us, bipolar disorder can be difficult to diagnose. Some of the things to look out for are:
- Change in self-esteem
- Unusual talkativeness or quietness
- Being increasingly prone to distractions
- Decreased need for sleep
- Recklessness in terms of spending decisions, relationships etc
It must be kept in mind that a person must display at least 4 of the above symptoms simultaneously to be diagnosed as bipolar. Also, none of these symptoms should be a result or side effect of any kind of medication, drugs, alcohol or other intoxicants.
There are four main types of bipolar disorder:
- Bipolar I: In such cases, the person has at least one episode of elevated moods and associated abnormal behaviour in his or her life. This may be preceded or followed by depressive episodes.
- Bipolar II: In these cases, the person must have suffered from at least one depressive episode. It is very similar to bipolar I except that in bipolar II the highs never reach the manic stage.
- Rapid Cycling: Some people can have 4 or more manic and depressive episodes a year. In such cases, they are said to be rapid cycling. This condition affects 10-20% of bipolar cases.
- Mixed Bipolar: Usually, bipolar patients show mood swings that alternate between manic and depressive moods. However, sometimes a person may experience both elation and depression simultaneously or in rapid succession of each other. These cases are known as mixed bipolar.
Once diagnosed, bipolar disorder can be managed with a combination of medication and psychotherapy. In some cases, electroconvulsive therapy may also be needed.
