Hi lybrate-user, you are suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder. Obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd) is characterized by unreasonable fears or obsessions that cause a person to engage in compulsive behaviors to minimize or relieve their anxiety. Ocd can range from mild to severe and it can also be accompanied by other mental health issues. Coping with ocd can be difficult, especially the sufferer is not seeking professional help. Psychiatrists use different kinds of therapy and medication to treat people with ocd. Ocd patients can also do things like keep a journal, join a support group, and use relaxation techniques to help them cope with ocd. If you think that you might have ocd, you should seek professional help from a mental health professional. Keep reading to learn more about how to cope with obsessive compulsive disorder. Ocd causes lots of stress and anxiety. Therapy and medication may help to relieve some of your negative feelings, but you should also take time to relax every day. Incorporating activities like meditation, yoga, deep breathing, aromatherapy, and other soothing techniques will help you cope with your stress and anxiety make sure to take the medications that your psychiatrist prescribes exactly as directed. Do not skip, stop, or increase your dosage without talking to your psychiatrist first.

Was an academically brilliant child and always topped my class till grade 10. Slumped in grade 11 and was diagnosed with depression and ADHD in grade 12th. I was put onto medication but it did more bad than good and was put off of it abruptly. I did get better but I do not think I am what I was before the episode. I have lost the charm and will to do most things and have not improved academically either. Had to take a drop for re taking my medically entrances. The next 6 months are possibly the most important years of my life. I would describe my current state as a hangover. I'm not as energetic and willing as before. How do I get better as quickly as possible?

You should meet with a counselor and explore the possibility of childhood influences as this is the last time you will get to sort out the past influences. If you do not, then you will have a permanent negative trait, which I believe is what is happening to you. Do not self-medicate or regulate medicine yourself: leave it to the doctors. Counseling will give you a lot of skills and techniques which medicine cannot give at all. So it is in the combination of medicine and counseling that you will get the best results.

Tri dot test it costs 250 in some where. Some where it is 350. Based on the lab atmosphere. It collects based on their standards. It is better to go where is pathologist running laboratory. Three months later it shows result. Better to check monthly once. If it is negative it is ok. If positive comes you need to consult dermatologist. They will give medicine. If you have anything worriedness then better to consult psychologist for psychological counselling. Do not be alone. Better to spend most of the time with your friends and family members. Be share your thoughts and feelings to your closed once. Be sociable all the time. Be happy all the time. Next you should not this type of mistake again. Ok all the best.

What are the causes and consequences of mental disorders mainly at their high stage?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
What are the causes and consequences of mental disorders mainly at their high stage?
Mental disorders are like any other disorders and can happen to anybody. They can also be treated like most other disorders. But unfortunately it goes undetected and untreated which usually leads to worsening of the diseases. It can lead to a number of harmful consequences in the social, financial, occupational and even physical domains of the patient. So, the importance of treating mental illness can't be stressed enough.

I have lost my job last month then onwards feeling very depressed. So I need your help to get out off it.
Loosing a job could be stressful. You are young and still in the beginning of your career. I am sure you will find another and perhaps more appropriate work. Feeling low when we loose something is a normal process. That is how we heal our self. At the same time life is full of stress. And it is very helpful for long run to develop resilience, which not only help you cop with tough situation but also help you think and act calmly and maturely and save you from some troubles. Please try following - it will surely help you in a long run. If you have something very specific and you need to talk then you may call me. Chronic stress is a side product of our life style these days. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relieve stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white flour in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Feeling sad and depressed always, feeling stressed due to daily family issues, inability to deal with ongoing stress, becoming socially withdrawn and having feelings of" quitting life" are all signs of depressive disorder. If you are facing these symptoms persistently for more than 2 weeks, you should not hesitate in consulting a psychiatrist for help.

Dear, watching porn movies and feeling sexually aroused is not a crime or not unhealthy. If it is in excess, if such a behavior interferes with your daily life, career and family life, then you must address it as addiction. 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.

I am not concentrate on studies since few days. Tell me how to get rid of this problem.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
For concentration and memory try following things on a daily basis and you will see positive results. Concentration is a mental skill that you can develop. There are two ways to improve your concentration: first, raise your brain's natural ability to concentrate. In other words, increase your attention. Second, adjust the environment around you to make concentrating easier. To improve your concentration takes a little time and effort, but it can be worth it. In my personal experience with students. This can make noticeable improvement in a relatively short time. Ideas for daily concentration-boosting habits include: mindfulness meditation - many studies confirm that 20 minutes of meditation or more per day improves concentration and attention span. Focusing on your breathing, known as mindfulness meditation, is one of the simplest way of meditation. Start with ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes before bed. Proper sleep -i am sorry to say it. Pulling all nighter will not help with your grade. Unless you are getting sufficient restful sleep, you are not going to be as mentally focused as you could be. Brain game -. The more you use certain skills, the more they are reinforced in the brain. So it makes sense that playing concentration games and games that require you to focus will improve your concentration ability. You need to be consistent in this. Play for about 10 to 20 minutes each day. Have fun, and get the benefits but remember not to spend more than 20 minutes a day. Your goal is to improve your concentration and not the score in the game! eat healthier - your brain needs the proper nutrients to allow you to focus. Eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid consumption of junk food as much as possible. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Exercise is helpful in both reducing stress and increasing focus. At-least 20 minutes a day would go a long way. Optimize your mental state & environment in addition to building the habits described above into your daily routine, also adjust your environment and your current mental state to improve your concentration when studying. Create a study spot. Your brain loves routine. Create a place where all you do is study. An obvious choice is a secluded desk of some kind, but the trick is to make sure you only study in that spot. Studying in bed is a bad habit, for example, because your body is trained to want to sleep once you get into bed. Remove distractions. Turn off the ringer on your phone and take other steps to prevent interruptions. Don't study with the television on or with talk radio playing. Some studies have shown that soft instrumental music (no vocals) can help improve your concentration. Block background noises. If you have to study or work in an environment where it is too loud (classroom or open space) or too quiet (such as at home or at a library) you can get easily distracted by outside influences. With the right amount of background noise you can actually block out distractions and enhance your creative thinking. Use time boxes. Set a time limit when you need to study new material. For example, let's say you want to read one chapter in a book (and remember it). Decide in advance that you can have 45 minutes to read the chapter, and 15 minutes to review it. Set a timer to keep yourself honest, then pace yourself to keep within the allotted time. Stay motivated with rewards. If you see studying as burden, it's hard to concentrate. One way to stay motivated is to set up a reward system. Tell yourself you have to earn that hour of watching your favorite show later in the evening by first completing one hour of intense studying. That way, even if the material is dry, you have the reward to look forward to. Take a break every two hours. You mental energy will begin to decline after a long period of study. So every two hours or so, take a ten minute break. Walk around, eat a light snack, or just stare at the wall to relax your mind. Concentrating is the first step to learning anything new. It only makes sense that if you improve your concentration, your memory will improve also.

My brother is suffering from psychiatric problem(Schizophrenia) since 25 years. Medicine is continuing. His behavior is like normal, but he is purchasing news papers and wrtting in news paper for whole day. No improvement brought over that. Can You suggest how to escape from that.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your brother is obviously not on a rehabilitation program of occupational therapy. Mere medical approach will not suffice. He needs to know how to spend his time productively; and his mind and body needs to be engaged in some useful manner. His mind is already busy with disturbing thoughts and it needs to be distracted and focused in activities that can train the brain to trigger more healthy neuronal pathways and thus become a healthy person. He may ideally contact a psychotherapist for this follow up. Additionally, I could suggest some exercises that he could do to serve the same purpose. You may contact me if you need them.

Hi there ~ the effects of stress tend to build up over time. Taking practical steps to maintain your health and outlook can reduce or prevent these effects. The following are some tips that may help you to cope with stress: seek help from a qualified mental health care provider if you are overwhelmed, feel you cannot cope, have suicidal thoughts, or are using drugs or alcohol to cope. Get proper health care for existing or new health problems. Stay in touch with people who can provide emotional and other support. Ask for help from friends, family, and community or religious organizations to reduce stress due to work burdens or family issues, such as caring for a loved one. Recognize signs of your body's response to stress, such as difficulty sleeping, increased alcohol and other substance use, being easily angered, feeling depressed, and having low energy. Set priorities-decide what must get done and what can wait, and learn to say no to new tasks if they are putting you into overload. Note what you have accomplished at the end of the day, not what you have been unable to do. Avoid dwelling on problems. If you can't do this on your own, seek help from a qualified mental health professional who can guide you. Exercise regularly-just 30 minutes per day of gentle walking can help boost mood and reduce stress. Schedule regular times for healthy and relaxing activities. Explore stress coping programs, which may incorporate meditation, yoga, tai chi, or other gentle exercises. Hope this helps.

I am  20 years old. Am getting body pains with small works also. What should I do?
What is the severity of pain? is the pain continous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

Dear Lybrate user, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. There are no medicines or short cuts available to keep your health intact while continue smoking. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advise. Take care.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Only strong will power, determination, attending AA meetings and diverting mind when tempted will help you stop alcohol or may need professional help from a psychiatrist or de addiction centre. Try to do meditation and yoga. Read good books and listen to music and if you are believer attend Bhajans Alcohol causes 7 types of cancer, including breast, mouth and bowel cancers. When you drink alcohol, cancer-causing chemicals are formed. Alcohol also affects hormone levels and makes cells even more likely to be damaged by smoking. The less alcohol you drink, the lower the risk of cancer. No type of alcohol is better or worse than another, it is the alcohol itself that leads to the damage, regardless of whether it is in wine, beer or spirits. And drinking and smoking together are even worse for you. Not everyone who drinks alcohol will develop cancer. But on the whole, scientists have found that some cancers are more common in people who drink more alcohol than others. Every year, alcohol causes 4% of cancers .Tips to cut down on alcohol. There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink. It can help to work out if there are particular times or situations when you tend to have a drink, whether that’s a bad day at work or a weekly pub quiz tradition, and plan what you’ll say and do differently next time. Have more alcohol-free days a week. For liver health it’s best to have at least 2 days off alcohol in a row each week. Try agreeing on certain days with your partner or a friend and help each some wi other and stick to it. If you are planning to drink alcohol, decide on a limit in advance and make sure you don’t go over it. Swap every other alcoholic drink for a soft one – starting with your first drink. Try shandy instead of a pint of beer, or swap ne for soda and have a spritzer. Don’t stock up on beer, wine or spirits at home. Finish one drink before pouring another, because topping up drinks makes it harder to keep track of how much you’ve had and when you planned to stop. Avoid buying drinks in rounds, that way you don’t have to keep pace with anyone. Tell a friend or partner that you’re cutting down on alcohol, they can support you – or even join you.
