I am 20 years old. Sir, I had psychiachiatric problem. So I went to the psychiatrist. He diagnosed my problem as 1) depending personality disorder 2) depressive personality disorder 3) anxious personality disorder After came out of the problem I came to an idea and I started studying the people. I started being happy once unexpectedly misunderstanding happened between me and somebody, at that time I was asking apologise suddenly my father came and he said that my son (me) become mad that's y he misunderstood don't mine him. I was shock from that day onwards I lost interest on life, I decided that I will never enjoy in life. Is solution is there in for my problem or not. Even I unable to go out of the room I am a good student. Even sir I am not able to go for bath. I am expecting that I may have PTSD or panic disorder. If it is panic disorder (agoraphobia) which medicine is suitable for that. No doctor understanding me clearly please suggest me?

Hi, you did not expect tour father to label you like that which led to your withdrawn behavior, lack of motivation and feeling stigmatised. See, you have a long life to go a long journey to complete. After birth we are on our own. You have to do yourself good by managing your illness. I'm sure a nice doctor will understand you. Stick to one doctor. Take proper medication. Full course and you will be able to overcome. Also its necessary to take psychotherapy/ counseling for which you can consult me. If both are done soon you will see a change and will be better. The thing is you don't have to focus on diagnosis you have to focus on solutions. Have faith and you will overcome it. Will help you. All the best.

How to reduce negativity and imbibe positive thinking

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
How to reduce negativity and imbibe positive thinking
How to reduce negativity and imbibe positive thinking

These are some basic steps that many of us know but forget to think when in emotional distress sometimes. I am collating that for a quick recap.

Thoughts constitute an important part of one’s life. Those thoughts can be favourable or unfavourable. For a few people, those thoughts are unfavourable most of the times. They often keep thinking about the negative outcomes of a work. Their friends and people around them who keep hearing the same will also start wondering if that work can ever be successful. To come out of such situations, it is better to follow a few basic steps.

1. Do not speculate that that something might happen and start looking at the facts. Never come to a conclusion without any proof.

2. If an untoward incident happened in the past, don’t think that it will repeat itself again. For example if you have failed in an exam, it doesn’t mean that you will fail in every aspect of life.

3. Stop worrying about what is not happening and start focussing about what is happening. Many of us have faults in our thought process. Because of that, we tend to forget about the favourable incidents happening and only worry about those that didn’t happen.

4. Don’t spiral any incident out of control. For instance, if you call a friend and if she didn’t answer it, it doesn’t mean for sure that she is not interested in talking to you. If you are thinking like that, it means that you are also worried about petty issues. Inculcate patience. Just leave a message to your friend and forget that incident and start looking at what other better activities to do.

5. Lot of people keep saying that they are not intelligent and that they are not fit for anything. If you think like that, your results will also become the same. So, stop thinking like that and perhaps start thinking that you have some weaknesses and you have other strengths that will make you fit for several other activities. There are no 100% bad or 100% good people in the world. Don’t speculate forever about what your weaknesses are and talk to people around you to understand what they think about you.

6. Emotional thinking in negative circumstances can lead to lowering your self confidence. Instead of generalising that you are unfit, it is perhaps that you are unfit for a certain task or at a certain time only.

7. When problems occur in one’s family, you may think that you are the reason. Instead of blaming yourself, look for a solution and solve the problem. With the outcome, you will feel better.

8. When you hear remarks from someone, do not treat it as untoward attitude towards you. Everyone makes mistakes and you have committed a mistake which is not an anomaly. All that you have to do is to learn from the mistakes and try to not repeat such mistakes in future. It will not help to reminisce about the mistake forever.

It is highly important to realise negativity. Immediately after, think comprehensively about the issue analysing the facts and try to mitigate your negative thoughts. Try to talk to a friend or a family member or a counsellor to help you reduce such ill thoughts.

How to reduce emotional stresses due to our friends behavior. Not responding us. When I think that I am nothing to her. I became abnormal. Sometimes I cry. I can't control my feelings. Became over emotional and started crying and thinking about the memories of her. It is killing me. Please give me a kind advise to left that problem. But I want to be in touch with her lifelong. Please give me a kind advise to convince her. And she will talk to me as jolly as like before.

Hi it seems you trying to catch up on someone who is not responding, or is not interested any more. Breakups are never without pain. Has it ended on a bad note between you? I understand its distressing but I feel you must take care of yourself first, so that you are in a better state to make decisions. How long have been in a low mood? how is your sleep and appetite? how are your energy levels and interest in daily life. Please come back with answers. All the best!

Hi lybrate-user, you are such a supportive wife, kudos to you! has he been taking medication, if yes, since how long? may be its time to change the doctor or the medication. People do stabilize after taking right kind of medication. More than that I think he requires psychotherapy from a counselor. Coax him into going to a psychotherapist for dealing with his thoughts and emotions. He might be having negative attitude and thoughts which may come in form of irritability and aggression. So proper emotional regulation is also important. You can give him more green leafy vegetables, salad, fruits- banana's, less caffeine, tell him to start exercising you can exercise along with him or do yoga/ meditation. If the loss of libido is due to medication it can be addressed if there is some other reason, you can share so that we can work on a solution. All the best.

Actually I'm smoking. And nw I'm stop smoking so I have re back my lungs before how it should give me some tips.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of love/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. You may consult me.

Do regular exercises for warmup. Do stretching after playing. You might be suffering from dehydration and lack of nutrition. You must keep drinking water during practice. Drink 3 glass water 90 minutes before starting practice. Then drink water regularly during practice. If possible, measure your weight before you start practice and after you finish practice. If you have lost weight in that time, means you are dehydrated. Drink double the weight loss. For eg if 200 gm weight is reduced, drink 400 ml water or energy drink. High protein diet is necessary for recovery and building muscles. Dr. Prashant parate shoulder and knee surgeon arthroscopy and joint replacement specialist sports injuries specialist.

Effects of Smoking and Drinking on Oral Hygiene
Smoking

There is a very famous quote that smoking is a very classy way to commit suicide. Its adverse effects is not only evident on the smoker's lungs and respiratory system but on his health as a whole. The mouth suffers the immediate consequences - gums become pale, teeth lose their white color and the taste buds and the tongue get affected. It also has a damaging effect on the mouth muscles and lead to frequent mouth and tongue dryness ultimately leading to oral cancer.

Smoking during pregnancy affects the embryo formation and very often leads to the delivery of abnormal children or physical deformities in them.

The Role of Nicotine

The concoction of chemicals like nicotine in tobacco or smoke, and plaque bacteria leads to deterioration of the teeth. Before you realize, the teeth and the gums get considerably damaged which is irreversible. This paves the way to cavities and loosening of teeth that eventually have to be pulled out.

Alcohol

Alcohol contains good amount of sugars, which very easily settle in the mouth making it a bacteria-breeding place that feed on gums and teeth. The smoke which is drawn from a cigarette and the bacteria present together release a dangerous acid which results in stomach acidity initially and ultimately leads to oral cancer. This is also another reason to throat and intestine cancers as well.

Limiting the Damage

It is always good to quit smoking and drinking. Even though being addicted is not good, keeping the damage at its minimum is advisable. It is very important not only to brush and floss your teeth every morning but also after every meal. It is a good habit to rinse the mouth with water very often when you are drinking to normalize the saliva flow. Do not forget to keep chewing sugar free gums very often if you are a regular drinker.
Regular visits to the dentist is almost a mandate for regular smokers and drinkers. If you or any of your family members are facing oral hygiene problems and looking for suggestions or treatment

Dear lybrate user. Please stop worrying about the semester examinations now. What were you doing for the whole semester? if you were doing your studying properly for the past semester, the exams will be alright. Other wise, it will be tough. What is the use of worrying about it now? listening to music distract your attention. Fix a time table. Do what ever you can in the area of study. Get good sleep. That is all you can do right now. Take care.

Do not panic. In anxiety people tend to amplify their symptoms or whatever little sensation they are having in the body and see it as life threatening. Continue to take mediation for anxiety and do some deep breathing exercises. Pay less attention to your body.

You have good concentration. You shift your interest into learning new things that help you clear exams. Practice learning organize way/ Make a graph of priority areas in your syllabus and concentrate and learn. Practice answering question papers of previous years and time it be serious. Be quiet in mind and all others will have the same in their mind. Be natural and face in your own words. For public speaking you practice for few times. You will master. Just do it. You think of strength and relax. Meditate and keep deep mental poise.

Dear jaundice is hepatitis b. Please approach a physician for treatment. Medicines with dietary restrictions helps. Quitting smoking is no child's play and it takes time and courage. Best method is to completely quit today (now) and sustain with the help of your mind power. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so.

You do not need to forget her. Once you start trying to forget her, you will feel the thoughts about her only increase in frequency and volume that may lead you to many psychological problems. Instead, keep in touch with her as a friend, at the same time, try to focus and spend more time on your studies or career planning. If you are strong enough to balance both, you will be the real life hero. Wish you a successful career life.
