My mother is suffering from depression and some form of psychotic disorder from the past 10 years , she used to talk to herself, doing arguments with my father on issues that didn't even existed. We took her to many doctors and her condition cured very much but still she can't get somethings out of her head (sometimes I feel like she has brainwashed herself) and still fights with my dad due to which my father became an alcoholic and our family conditions are also not good as we are 3 sisters and 1 brother, thinking about this lately has made me depressed. Please advice me what to do as I am also not doing great in life.

So sad you are able to use lybrate, but haven't understood your mother's illness. Based on what you said, she is suffering from schizophrenia, a major mental disorder. One needs to understand the disorder, take continuous treatment, even then some deficits might be there. Your father should have been supportive, giving treatment to her and taking care of the kids, and not going for alcohol dependence (which is rationalization). Understand your mother s illness and giving her continuous treatment, if your psychiatrist is not able to bring significant improvement get a second opinion.

I have a anatabuse / disulfiram implant in my body, and am still drinking alcohol. Exactly what damage am I doing to what organs?

You are putting your liver and nerves at risk for serious damage. Also you are putting yourself at risk for a severe disulfiram reaction which could lead to fall in blood pressure and sudden death too.

Iam under stress for the past 1 week. Its my exam time. I want to concentrate in my studies. What to do?

Iam under stress for the past 1 week. Its my exam time. I want to concentrate in my studies. What to do?
The proverbial exam fever is capable of causing a lot of stress. Stress is not a good indicator for studies. Because of your age you may have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too.

Any such unfortunate incident with an individual may just be a trigger to precipitate an underlying psychiatric disorder. It would be rather inappropriate to speculate about his diagnosis or treatment from such an inadequate data. However I would certainly recommend you to visit a psychiatrist with your friend for a good plan of management. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand that the situation is difficult, two people are never same. You should have ascertained about this before marriage nevertheless, you can just motivate and encourage her to do things and few loves you she may comply. Otherwise you will have to enter marital counseling and make decisions mutually about how you want to go ahead in your relationship. You can consult me for counseling/guidance. All the best.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, you should tell your friend to advance with age. The fact that you mentioned is it was in past. So why worry about past and spoil present and future. We all have a past, even your friend might have had. So what if his wife loved someone and was intimate with him. The reality is now she is married to your friend and loyal to him. Problem would be if she was still involved with someone, which I understand she isn't. Try to make your friend understand to leave what has happend and loot forward to a good future together. Nothing can be undone and it is a not a sin.

What is work of proton pump inhibitors in human body?
What is sideffect of diazepam.
Proton pump inhibitors temporarily block the production of gastric acid in stomach in response to food and are helpful in acid peptic symptoms or reflux diseases. Diazepam is a benzodiazepine, along acting one. In different dosages as required it is used for anxiety, epilepsy, anti withdrawal management etc. Misuse and overuse or injudicious use of diazepam can cause dependence on the drug, overdose can cause inability to walk, giddiness, syncope and coma.

I am loosing my concentrations in my work. In night I am not getting good sleep. Help me. Bring out from the problem.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS

This is not a good sign for you. It means that the activities on daily basis which you are suppose to do are not as per your liking or you are not capable of doing them. The best thing you can do is accept what your situation is, feel confident that you can make it better, start looking for solutions to the problems and start acting on the solutions. The best we can do is effort. Hard-work always pays, it might seem to you at stages that everything is going out of control but relax, thinking negative will not help. If the point of concern is a female or disappointment in love then you are too young right now to get your self messed up in such situations. Do not let emotions dominate your brains. If the point of concern is education and career, then just do not keep on expecting and start hardworking, you will get returns later on the right time. 1. Exercise daily 2. Have almonds raisins, milk etc 3. Add fruits and salads in diet hope you a speedy recovery.

How to improve my sex ability and make my partner much satisfied and feel less stress during sex.
Hi lybrate-user, it depends what kind of ability you are talking about. Nevertheless, its no rocket science, just be yourself make your partner comfortable, pay attention to their sexual needs as much as you pay to yours. Ask her what she wants, do not make it boring experiment, compliment her to let her feel more comfortable, do more foreplay before intercourse. If you feel stress just do deep breathing exercise before entering such situation. All the very best.

It is good you realized the fact. It happens because of excessive friendly relations with boys. Sharing problems, mutual contact, excessive privacy, no objections, no risks from law. No one is not suspected your relations. Availability of boys in sex mood. There are so many reasons to be attracted towards boys. Initial days onwards negativity towards girls. Rejection from girls also reason to develop homo sexuality thoughts. Once you do it may be addiction. Your mind repeatedly ask homosex. It is also no cost also. Then you easily go. But in future you may not enjoy with girls. Your life is miserable when you marry. So initial time onwards you please erase thought in your friend. Touch lady skin then you get more satisfaction. Better to make friendliness with girls. Then you enjoy natural sex in healthy manner. So please change your mind set. Enjoy real taste of sex. Ok best wishes.

I am suffering from headache. Because studying from 3 days continuously. And not sleep from 3 days.
Studying continuously will make your head spin and the very purpose of studies will go waste as you will not be in a position to reproduce whatever you may have learnt over three days. For best output, give yourself short breaks which both you and your body deserve.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, you should consult a psychologist for stammer therapy. Take care.

Anger is type of negative emotions. Do yoga, pranayam everyday. It helps to decrease the ratio of your anger. When you feel like angry that time you instruct yourself'stop' which helps you to think before do something.

BHARAT JYOTI, MRACGP, INCEPTOR, MD-PhD, FIPS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), DPM, MBBS

Sometimes physical problems can cause depression. But other times, symptoms of depression are part of a more complex psychiatric problem. There are several different types of depression, including: Major depressive disorder Dysthymia and chronic depression (now called persistent depressive disorder) Seasonal affective disorder Psychotic depression Bipolar depression Major Depression An individual with major depression, or major depressive disorder, feels a profound and constant sense of hopelessness and despair. Major depression is marked by a combination of symptoms that interfere with the person's ability to work, study, sleep, eat, and enjoy once pleasurable activities.

Dear Manish, Occasional erectile dysfunction is common around marriage time. You have had good erection in the mornings means, you are physically and hormonal;y normal. Alcohol increases the desire to have sex and makes the performance poor. So, why don't you try stopping alcohol fully? If you have any difficulty as withdrawal symptoms, doctors can help you. Smoking can cause impotency itself. Moreover the smell stays on your cloths for a long time. Suppose your wife does not like cigarette's smell,....... So, why don't you stop smoking. Quitting both may be difficult - but if you make effort, doctors and medicines will help you. You will get not only sexual health, even overall health benefits also.
