I had to move to a different city for studying in a college. I'm a single child and my parents are very over protective about me. Thats why my mother decided to come with me and stay together in a rented house. My mom is a house wife and dad has his business back home. Although dad keeps vising for a good 10-15 dats every month, yet mom has to stay alone in d house d rest of d days when dad isnt around. Every time dad leaves, my mom kees crying the entire day and stays very irritated. She creates a scene and scolds me over trivial reasons. She loves me a lot and doesnt let me do anything on my own. She doesnt even let me go to college and come home alone.She drops me and picks me up as well. She is skeptical about me going anywhere outside college campus with my friends. Although i avoid going out with friends but on some days i have to go out in order to participate in extra curricular activities of college. On such days, my mother would be very concerned and would worry a lot. My mother has diabetes,high blood pressure etc and if she takes tension it adversely affects her health. Sumtimes she drops me to college and den i go out of college meet friends and den come back to college. I dont like the way she tries to control my life. From what i eat to what i ear and everything else she controls me.I hv told her that i can stay in a hostel but she says she cant live without me and also that i cant take care if myself. When dad is away she keeps calling dad all the time which makes dad feel guilty as well. We tell her something as to how she can keep herself busy with books or exercise or some creative classes. We tell her that she needs to give me some space and that i'm not a 10 year old anymore. But when we say all this, she cries or gets angry and her blood pressure gets high etc. She has sacrificed a lot for the family but she needs to understand that each one us are also individuals and we all need to have a life of our own. I feel like running away somewhere or just dying. Right now each one of us is frustrated. What do i do?
My son is mentally retarded. He is now 8years 9 months old. Now he walks in home fluently. In outside he fears. He can not talk. He tries to talk. He understand our talks in home. He recognises his father, mother,grandfather, grandmother and his sister. Is there any chance of improvement after proper medication. And how much it cast? Please help me.
Socially not easily angered but when little sister or family does something like even talking rude to me I become too much aggressive and I even hit my sister hard. I can not bear her not respecting me and speaking. How to control my anger. After shouting or hitting her I myself cry and spend the remaining day being sad and try to make her happy but in that spur of moment nothing calms me down. Please help me.
HI, We got married last December (2014) & ours is a love marriage with parents consent. My wife's age is 21 & myself 25. My wife hardly knows any work, but my mom & I tries to teach every work her very softly. If we show more love & affection and teach politely she turns into non-hearing mode, which means she starts to dominate us & dont learn/work at all. If I start to show some anger she starts to cry & start to learn/work. But I do not want her to have pain while she learn the work. Neither we want to see dominance from her. What is the best way to go forward. We use to love a lot & care for each other before marriage. Still now we love & care each other when things are fine. When things are worst it goes to extreme extent of thinking why did we marry each other. Kindly suggest your opinion. We want to lead a happy life together & forever with my wife learning all the work with out any pain. I cannot see anyone pointing at my wife for not knowing basic house hold activities.

Dear Doctor, I unnecessarily think a lot (on diverse topics). When I am doing some routine task like having dinner, taking bath etc I unconsciously start thinking on some topic. Even while doing professional task, I find myself thinking on something different topic. This is happening for last many months. I tried mindfulness exercises, but I kept getting distracted? Please give me some solution.
Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental syndrome in which individuals have their very own inflated feeling of self-significance, a deep requirement to be inspired and an absence of compassion for others. However, behind this cover of ultra-confidence mask, lies a delicate self-esteem that is helpless against the slightest criticism.
A narcissistic personality disorder causes issues in numerous areas of life, for example, work, school, relationships or monetary issues. Here are a few signs and symptoms that can show if a person is suffering from this disorder:
- Are highly reactive to criticism. People with this disorder are highly reactive to being criticised by the others or anything they assume is adversely affecting their identity. They get defensive when questions are posed.
- Have low self-esteem. This arena of their psyche is complicated because externally their self-esteem would seem to be higher and more guaranteed than pretty much anybody else's. They are continuously headed to justify themselves, both to others as well as their own self-esteem.
- Can be unnecessarily defensive and self-righteous. Anything said or done that they see as scrutinising their competence can activate their vigorous self-defensive systems. This is the reason why such a large number of non-narcissists have shared that it is so hard to break through to them in different situations of conflict.
- Respond to opposite perspectives with outrage. It is not specific feeling of dread or surrender that draw out their alleged narcissistic rage. These people respond with heated emotions when others convey their most profound insecurities excessively close to the surface. The reason that sentiments of outrage and anger are so normally communicated by them is because they hide feelings of shame and anxiety underneath it.
- Project others qualities, attributes, and practices they will not acknowledge in themselves. Since they are constrained to conceal their defeats, downfalls or shortcomings in their mental self-image, they routinely divert any unfavourable evaluation of themselves externally. It is difficult to break into the root cause of their aggression because their feelings are too underdeveloped to talk about it in matured terms.
- Have poor interpersonal boundaries and limits. It has been said in regards to narcissists that they cannot tell where they end and the other individual starts. They tend to see others as extensions of themselves. They view them as existing essentially to serve their own needs as they put their requirements before anyone else.
- Have an exceptionally solid feeling of privilege. They have nonsensical desires of getting good treatment by others or others complying with his or her desires.
- Need sympathy. People with this disorder are unwilling to perceive or relate to the sentiments and needs of the others.
Sir/madam,i am suffering from depression and anxiety, I am unhappy and I feel there is no grip in my talking and I forget my sentence while speaking and breaks my talk in the middle, unhappy all the time, long breathe or short breathe all the time. Unable to think about a topic for some duration of time, some feel of sensitivity in my toes most of the time, always feels I am doing wrong whatever I do, I am intensely feeling this from 3 years, but these feels was not all the time before these 3 years. Sir/madam I am badly affected by this, it is affecting my normal life, sir/madam please help me to come out of this.
Hello sir. I am a 21 year old student currently preparing for civil services. I have always been a bright student but lately my problem of over thinking (EXTREMELY negative thoughts) and overstress has exacerbated to an extent where forget concentrating, I am not even able to form proper sentences while speaking/writing. This has reduced my confidence levels drastically because I was always a good performer at debates and writing competitions in my school days. My father is an alcoholic so I do not share a friendly relationship with him. We hardly talk. I have always been sort of an introvert but now it has become very hard for me to bear with this loneliness as the only person I had in my life hates me now. I think I'm slowly going into severe depression because now that I am not able to study properly, I feel like I will not achieve my goals and all my aspirations will merely remain dreams. I wish I could emphasize more on how tough this has become for me but I fail to explain it to anyone perfectly. I do not want a solution to my problems, I just want my confidence and enthusiasm back so that I can concentrate on my studies and ignore all my problems.
Iam so un healthy. Full body pains. Can you tel me how can I grow my body. I want to fat. Can you please tel me. Wich food can I eat. speedily grow the fat.
Dementia is a disorder characterized by a decline in mental capabilities in a person. It is primarily caused by Alzheimer's disease but can also be caused by damage to the brain from an injury or a stroke. The cells of the brain fail to communicate with each other in dementia. People suffering from dementia have difficulties in taking part in regular activities as their mental functioning is impaired.
The major symptoms of dementia are problems in recalling, ineffective communication, inability to concentrate and impaired reasoning abilities. It may also affect the short-term memory of a person when he/she may be unable to keep track of his/her belongings. Dementia can be progressive where the symptoms gradually increase with age.
With age, the mind also goes through slowing. Being the control organ for all other organs, this leads to issues with thinking, cognition, communication, memory, etc. Dementia is a condition which is a combination of all these; it is not a disease per se, but a symptom complex.
- Alzheimer’s disease, a neurodegenerative process
- Brain injury (accidents, trauma, etc.)
- Huntington’s disease
Except in acute trauma cases, as a degenerative process, there are early symptoms of dementia which can be watched for. It is even possible to delay the progress of dementia by keeping an eye out for these symptoms.
- Recent memory loss: A person may not be able to recall what happened a couple of days prior but can clearly recollect events from the past. This may be gradual in onset and gets progressive. There could be difficulty in recollecting things like where the TV remote is, where the phone is, where the door keys are, etc. Some people could also ask for the same information repeatedly, as they are not able to retain information.
- Loss of learned behaviour: Things which were taught or learned like how to arrange things at the table, how to do basic things on the computer, organising medical kits, etc., might be forgotten. The person finds these more taxing than before and requires more help in doing them. Learning new tasks slowly becomes difficult too, as they find it difficult to get orderliness or process thinking in them.
- Mood changes: While depression with onset of dementia is very common, the person also could have drastic mood changes, which would be noticeable only to close family and friends
- Forgetting names: It is another major symptom. Whether it is of people or objects or animals, there is difficulty in recollecting names
- Personality alterations: Since dementia affects judgment and reasoning, a shy person could be seen to become outgoing gradually
- Difficulty following storylines: While most elderly people are adept at telling stories, those affected with dementia could be seen to be gradually losing track of the storylines. This could be true of their own storytelling or even television serials or movies.
- Repeating tasks: Given the short-term memory loss, they tend to repeat things which were just done, both in actions and words.
- Feeling lost: Recent memory loss also affects things like forgetting why they headed out, spacial disorientation, whether they had a snack or not, etc.
- Forgetting day to day things: Regular tasks like paying utility bills, reading newspaper or books, cooking up small dishes, tend to become difficult than they were. This is a combined effect of short-term memory loss and loss of orderliness. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.
