I'm 27 years old from past few days. I have been hearing lots of voices in my head and been getting lot of mood swings and not comfortable to step out of home.
Hello doctors. I'm really in need of you. I'm a 26 year old married woman having 2 year old baby. The things are not good between me and my husband. He is a very dominating and egoistic person. For the mrg to continue there are hell lot pf conditions like I will not be in contact with my family etc etc. I get very stressed with all this. He even said" I'm ashamed of having you in my life" The relationship is just bcz of our son otherwise there is nothing in our relationship. I don't doubt his loyalty. He feels he is very superior to me as he is gazetted officer. I being a house wife has no respect n worth in his eyes. He doesn't want me to work cz baby is small. But I'm fed up of listening how unworthy I'm. I wanna prove myself too. But he says if you are so much willing to do give me divorce and do. And if I'm at home he says you can't earn s rupee in your life this is your aukat. I'm from a well financed family. And has good academic record too. I'm always so depressed and always stressed. Feels like I have got an anxiety disorder. please help me.
I am a 18 year old student. I am studying in class 12th with science. My problem is I cannot concentrate on my studies and I even cannot memorize them for long time. Suggest me diet and exercise.
I have shaved off my scalp as I was suffering from a hairfall problem in a thought that it will be resolved. Please suggest some natural therapy, oil, medicine. So that it will be reduced. And I really don't wanna lose my hair more from now. The density has already been decreased. Little bit bald patches is also there. Each time I put my hand, some hair comes into my hand. It's a bit depressing. Do suggest a better idea to help me. Plzz.
My sister her age 26. She was mentally disturbed after my father was died. She is taking english medicine. But that medicine effected on her body, that means she is swelling and periods problem like that. So I request you to please give advice to her problem.
I get angry very easily and my anger shoots up to the extent of crying and breathlessness. I tend to shout but do not realize until someone points it out at home. My head starts to ache a lot and feels too overwhelming to handle at times, I've tried meditation and chanting but these things just don't seem to work and worsen my condition instead. I've been feeling too depressed and empty lately because my parents don't like to listen to me or my problems, thinking I might fight with them. But I never intend to. Everything just stays in my head like a mess 24/7 and I get mad when I see them lying about me to each other in front of me. I'm a musician and an engineering student who stays at a hostel where my mind is generally cool. I'm at home from the past 1.5 months and have to stay here for another month till my college reopens. P.S. I've never shouted at anyone except my own family (at home) and that too when I feel they're being too irrational which seems to be an everyday issue.
When it comes to accidents and other such traumatic incidents, a concise approach is needed to assess and manage the person’s injuries. The immediate response to an accident is known as basic life support and can be performed by anyone, but advanced trauma life support must be performed by a certified medical practitioner. The main objective of trauma life support is to address the greatest threat to life first.
Trauma life support has three stages primary survey, secondary survey and tertiary survey. A primary survey is the first part of proving trauma life support. This should be addressed in a series of steps that follows the mnemonic, ABCDE.
- Assess the airways: If the person is able to talk, his airways are clear. Hence call out to the person and try to get a verbal response. If the patient is unconscious, make him lie down on the floor with the chin tilted back. Open the mouth and check for any obstructions. Fluids such as blood or vomit that is obstructing the airways may be suctioned out. In case the airway is still obstructed, an endotracheal tube may be inserted.
- Breathing and ventilation: Check for chest movement that may indicate breathing. If present, tracheal deviation and subcutaneous emphysema should be identified. An inspection of the chest can help identify penetrating injuries, bruising, tracheal deviations and a flail chest segment.
- Circulation: Look out for hypovolemic shock that may be caused by excessive bleeding. This bleeding can be controlled by applying direct pressure on the wound. Establish two intravenous lines and administer crystalloid solution to the patient. If the person still does not respond, administer type specific blood or O negative blood to the person.
- Disability assessment: A basic neurological assessment can be made by alerting the person, verbal stimuli and its response or unresponsiveness. Towards the end of the primary survey, the Glasgow coma scale can be used to determine the patient’s level of consciousness.
- Exposure control: While the patient’s clothes will need to be completely removed, protect him from hypothermia by covering him with warm blankets. Warm intravenous fluids before administering them and maintain a warm environment.
Once the patient’s vital signs are turning normal, the medical practitioner can start the secondary survey. This involves a head to toe medical examination and understanding of family medical history. X-rays of the injury sites may also be taken. If at any point, the person’s condition begins to deteriorate, a primary survey should be repeated. As soon as possible, the patient must be shifted off the hard spine board and placed on a firm mattress. This is followed by a tertiary survey, which helps identify injuries that may have been missed earlier and other related problems.

Psychiatric disorders like bipolar disorder or schizophrenia do not appear all of a sudden. There are small changes that happen to an individual over a long period of time until the disease fully develops. These signs and symptoms might be too subtle in the early stage for other people to notice until they become obvious. But an early detection of any irregularity proves to be more beneficial for the patient in the long run.
It is important to know the telltale symptoms of mental disorder to distinguish between what is regular and what is not.
- Withdrawal: Everyone needs some quiet time to cool off and relax but if a person continuously withdraws him/herself from social occasions and avoids meeting or speaking to friends, it could be a sign that something is wrong. Losing interest in life, work and people are symptoms of depression and psychotic disorder.
- Thinking problems: Having trouble concentrating, remembering, understanding and explaining oneself in a coherent manner are some common signs of mental disorder.
- Anxiety: Excessive stress and anxious behavior for a prolonged period are not normal. Frequent heart palpitations, headache, shortness of breath, racing mind and restlessness are cries of help that need to be heard.
- Emotional outbursts: Sudden dramatic outbursts for no apparent reason, frequent mood swings and feeling distressed are potent signs of mental illnesses. These kinds of behavior are seen as part of a person's nature and so they are often unnoticed.
- Changes in appetite and sleeping patterns: Oversleeping may be a sign of depression and insomnia could be a sign of anxiety. Changes in appetite and not caring about oneself or the world are indicators of a mental problem. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist and ask a free question.
