Hello, welcome to lybrate sorry to hear about the tragic incident that happened to your cousin. Such traumatic life events are a source of immense stress. Such stressful conditions can trigger the development of an abnormal personality, an underlying mental illness, which might remain hidden till a new triggering factor is encountered in life. Also such life events makes an individual more vulnerable for stressful situation in future, reduces stress coping abilities and can lead to maladaptive changes in ones behaviour. As you told that since last 5-6 month he had started behaving abnormally, with increased aggression. This might be triggered by some other incident which need to be explored. Also it can be the beginning of an underlying mental illness. Hence before going for managing these symptoms, a thorough assessment is necessary in order to understand his emotional and psychological state. This will help in understanding him better, & would help in making a better management plan for his issues. If you consider that you need detailed evaluation for your cousin, and want to seek an expert advice pertaining to his problems, you can a private session with me.

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?

Dear Lybrate user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

I can not remember anything for long time I forget things. How I can improve my memory.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Hi there, short term memory allows you to retain a small amount of information for a short amount of time. Think of it as a temporary workspace where information is consciously registered before being processed into long term memory. A lot of short term data is thrown straight out and is never committed to long term memory. But when we immediately throw out data we want to remember, it becomes a problem. So how can we retain the important stuff so that it sticks when we really want to remember something? in this article, we'll look at the causes of short term memory loss and how you can actively improve it through daily brain training, mnemonic devices, an ultimate memory improvement software and memory supplements. What causes short term memory loss? there are many things that disrupt your conscious processing of new memories. For example, if you can't absorb new information properly, then you have no hope of remembering it later. It's quite normal to forget things committed to recent memory, like what you had for breakfast or where you put your keys. This is a sign of aging, and its the biggest cause of short term memory loss. Your brain stops growing and starts shrinking in your 20s, and so you have fewer brain cells as you get older. While it doesn't usually affect your active memory (minutes), it does affect your recent memory (hours). However, other types of short term memory loss can be a cause of concern. It is associated with a whole host of diseases and disorders, including: alcohol abuse alzheimer's disease atlantic mussel food poisoning cerebral tumor cerebrovascular disease chronic fatigue syndrome chronic stress creutzfeldt jakob disease dementia depression drug abuse encephalitis head injury hiv/aids huntington's disease hypothyroidism lead poisoning marijuana abuse mental illness morgellon's disease normal pressure hydrocephalus sleep deprivation smoking stroke syphilis vitamin b12 deficiency if you feel your short term memory loss is not directly related to aging, you should check out the section on the wider causes of memory loss. However, depending on the underlying cause of your short term memory loss, there are some practical techniques you can use to help restore it. How to improve your short term memory most people compensate for short term memory loss by keeping notes and writing lists of important data. This may provide a quick solution but it doesn't challenge your brain to remember more - if anything, you're using your active memory even less. Automatically storing all your numbers in a cell phone or pda doesn't exactly help either. Instead, it's far better to: perform brain training learn memory techniques take a memory supplement all of these will optimize your brain to perform better naturally - without any artificial aids which will ultimately make it lazy. 1. Brain training it's important to keep your mind sharp as you age. Studies have found that seniors who do crosswords, puzzles, read, write and play card games delayed the onset of dementia. You only need do this kind of mental exercise twice a day in order to help prevent your mental powers from stagnating. The other good news is, brain training is fun! for memory improvement games, I recommend lumosity online brain training. It's free to begin with so you can get a taste of what's available, offering a wide range of simple and scientifically-proven memory games designed for all ages. By practicing daily, you can track your performance and monitor your level of improvement. It's a great resources for anyone serious about sharpening their working memory skills. 2. Memory improvement techniques take a look at some of these memory improvement techniques, designed to help you store more dry data and flex that memory muscle of yours. Exercise a - chunking studies show that most people can comfortably store 7 random digits. In order to make this a lot easier we naturally use a technique called chunking - separating the data into smaller blocks, such as hyphenating phone numbers. How to improve short term memory: chunkingsome people stretch this technique to remember their 16-digit credit card number, broken down into chunks of 4 digits. Can you do this? don't worry if not, most people have simply never tried. After all, we do have this mentality of writing things down instead of making the effort required to remember them. So next time you need to remember a phone number, try the good old method of chunking and committing it to memory first. Repetition and writing it down will help. But the aim of this exercise is to recall the number from memory later on in the day - and not have to refer to a cell phone or scrap of paper. Exercise b - mnemonic devices a mnemonic device is a verbal or visual memory improvement technique that makes it easier to remember a host of seemingly unrelated data. It works by evoking vivid and unusual mental imagery and emotions, thereby giving dry data meaning. Mnemonic devices this mnemonic device will remind you to call your angry gorilla-like boss today. Simple mnemonics can be as basic as a rhyme or acronym to create a reference point for the data you're trying to learn. For instance, my very easy method just sums up nine planets tells us the order of the planets in orbit is mercury, venus, earth, mars, jupiter, saturn, uranus, neptune, pluto. Don't worry pluto, you are still a planet to me! we have all used simple mnemonics like this before - but there are many more clever mnemonic devices to enhance your memory. My favorite are the ones involving colorful visualizations (like a ton of garbage falling down on my head when the clock chimes six) reminding me to take the garbage out. Whether you are battling aging memory loss or super-charging a healthy student memory, mnemonic devices are an excellent habit to form. You will soon be able to quickly memorize long lists of items, tasks, or important facts and recall them from your short term memory with ease. These can also be translated to long term memories if you wish. These powerful techniques can be applied to everyday life and not only help you recall data more easily, it is also another great form of brain training. 3. Memory vitamins sometimes memory loss can be attributed to a nutritional deficiency in the diet. Experts recommend eating more nutrient-rich foods or specific vitamin supplements to restore balance. This provides the brain with all the nutrients it needs to function properly, including the way it forges and retrieves memories. If you are looking to improve your short term memory, you may find it helps to take a memory supplement, in addition to eating a healthy balanced diet. Using the latest memory research, I have compiled a list of the best memory vitamins. These include vitamins b, c, e and omega-3 fatty acids. I hope this helps. I wish you a very quick and speedy recovery.

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.

Well you seem to have symptoms like fear of haircuts, body image abnormality thoughts etc. Usually persons with low self confidence or low self esteem, have self doubt regarding their body image and find it difficult to speak in public and also avoid talking to people regarding those issues. You seem to have predominantly anxiety spectrum issues but in any case you need a detailed evaluation for further treatment. Kindly consult your psychiatrist for help. Be relaxed stay healthy.

Hello dear the symptoms are indicative of anxiety but it needs to be assessed in details for proper diagnosis and treatment. Try consulting a clinical psychologist or psychiatrist for the same. Try practicing meditation and deep breathing exercises. Also try to make a schedule of studies and all other activities to balance your day which will also improve your sleep and overall health.

4 Types of Bipolar Disorder You Should Know

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, Senior Resident Psychiatrist
Psychiatrist, Ahmedabad
4 Types of Bipolar Disorder You Should Know

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:

  1. Change in self-esteem
  2. Unusual talkativeness or quietness
  3. Being increasingly prone to distractions
  4. Decreased need for sleep
  5. Agitation
  6. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Dear lybrate user. You do not need any medicines. Even if you use medicines, unless you change your attitude, nothing changes. Please understand, failure is not the end of anything. You can always study well and perform well. Instead of worry what happened in the past, prepare yourself for the future. You need psychological counseling. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, tension during and before examination is called performance anxiety. To overcome exam related performance anxiety, you should know yourself, your subject, exams and your study patterns. Once you study systematically and to the point, there is no need to be panic before or during the exams. Effective learning techniques should help you. Please consult a psychologist online or in person for further advice. Take care.
