From last 2 it is very much increased, she started doubting her who call her to enquiry about her health.

Dear doctor we have come to know that estrogen (estradiol) supply to brain may boost neuron plasticity and regeneration. Please help us by advising the way to supply this female hormone that can cure schizophrenia and the dose. We will be highly obliged and thankful to you.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear Rajinder, Schizophrenia is not just neuron plasticity or regeneration. It is due to many complex neurochemicals' imbalances in brain. So estrogens have not yet come into the clinical treatment of schizophrenia. In order to find a cure for schizophrenia, plenty of things are tried in lab or on animals or even humans. Many of them give optimistic findings in lab or animals. The same may not be found in persons suffering from schizophrenia. Right now, it is long term anti-psychotics and other psycho-social methods, are the treatment.

I have a stammering problem. What should I do to cure this problem and remove the stammering problem.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always ends up in negative territory. Over thinking leads to obsession, self talking and laziness. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

This is a very serious condition but can be treated with both counseling and medication. The therapy will need to be very intense and long term. The medical consultation may be intermittent but the one-to-one counseling will be very demanding on both the professional and the counselee and must be pursued until the end. Apart from this there has to be adequate family investment of time, patience, money, and energy; and all of this must be done with utmost love. The MPD identifies with several personalities, and each one not much aware of the other. There is however one over-ruling personality and if that is brought into focus and if that personality can trust or develop the trust with the therapist your cousin can work out a way of accepting and working with the other personalities for favorable outcomes. Believe me though this is really quite tedious and sapping. Both the family and the therapist must be quite dedicated till the end. There may be a lot of relapses but that is to be expected but no one is to give up because every inch of progress has to be somehow retained and preserved like gold. If there is any doubt regarding the family?s commitment, then you may have to put her in a rehabilitation center that has experience working with MPDs.

Dear lybrate-user, Sorry to hear about your brothe'sr and parent's sufferings. This what happens to many families that have a person living with a mood disorder. Your brother is young and he has the whole future in his hand. Let not the mood disorder spoil it. Please know that mood disorders are treatable. The treatment may be long term mood stabilizers, antidepressants, tranquilizers, psychotherapy or a combination of all these at different times. Please have hope and continue to treat him as advised by your psychiatrist. You will be doing good not only for your brother but for the whole family including yourself. Positive results, take time because many tablets don't reach brain immediately. It takes 2-3 weeks. Doctors usually give a low dose in the beginning and then only increase the dose. The same doctor will help you out with the dose and different type of tablets at different time. Even if your brother refuses to go to doctor, you or your parents can go to him and discuss your brother's mood swings.

Dear lybrate-user. As you have been diagnosed with panic disorder, all these symptoms including your high blood pressure is normal. These symptoms are normal and natural and never will have any negative health effect to your body. Don't worry. Regarding blood pressure, always it is the anxiety causes your blood pressure. You should leave the symptoms at it. Your psychiatrist is very much correct. Believe him and stop worrying about the symptoms. You should also understand another fact. Panic disorder always is due to an underlying anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Lybrate-user. Memory depends on your concentration and confidence. So try to improve your concentration and confidence. Start meditation and yoga which would help you brisk walk everyday maintain a diary for your daily schedule which would give an organised day which is important for your concentration. Start writing good thoughts and achievement's in a diary do not discuss your probelms with everyone rather get a confident attitude which it self improves your confidence. Give importance to a fruit and food salad. Csrrots, beat root, apple, banana, and vegetables. Involve high protein food. Soya beans, nuts, fish, eggs, meat. Can have wet almonds in morning. Can have multivitamins and antioxidants. Drink green tea. Avoid beverages and junk food. And one more your hairloss could b due to stress. Take care!

EFFECT OF NEGATIVE RELATIONSHIPS

SLE, Fellowship In Diabetology, Diploma In Psychology Mental Health And Illness, PLAB (MANCHESTOR, UK), FAGE, MBBS
General Physician, Bangalore

We all come across relationships where a lot of negativity is thrust upon us be it from parents, siblings, friends, relatives or at work. What effect does this negativity have on our mind and what changes it can bring in us are described below

Loss of confidence- confidence is key to the successful planning and implementation of any idea. If people around you try to break your confidence to believe and implement in your ideas you are very unlikely to do anything with it.

Lack of self esteem- Self esteem is the mirror image of what we hold in our mind. If we don’t see a good image we are unlikely to like it and do anything with it.

Identity crisis- When we are unable to maintain a definition about us due to constant criticism and nagging we will become unsure of who we really are and what we really are capable of doing. This also effects our ability to project what we really feel and think to the outside world.

Low mood/depression- Feelings of guilt and worthlessness can easily develop once we aren’t able to win the approval and acclaim of people around us. This can make us sink very fast without leaving a trace of what our baseline was.
Impaired problem solving abilities-People who constantly are unsure of what they should be doing due to nagging In changing situations will loose the ability to deliver quick results when they are presented with a new situation.
Impaired concentration-Due to inability to depend on themselves to work out any problem people will develop inability to assimilate and process any kind of information and hence will develop problems of concentration as they are wary to pick up any new task due to fear of mistakes or failure.

Lack of foresight- As they get surrounded by feeling of inadequacy within themselves they start loosing ability to process information to deduce inference and their implications over consequences and hence slowly start loosing insight over what their actions might bring. This makes them incapable of doing actions which lead to what they find as desirable results because they are too busy seeking approval from who is nagging them.

Impaired/inappropraite communication – Due to lack of a coherent and independent functioning practice such people are often unsure of what they are speaking and tend of focus only on seeking immediate approval of who they are communicating with and even in that communication they are not accurate as they are worried they may face nagging due to what they may say. Example is stammering in people is somewhat due to same reasons partly.

Personality problems- Such people may often come across as people with borderline personality disorders as they are so weak so sustain a constant personality because they are scared they have to depend on the approval of several conflicting minds none of whom may be erroneous on their own but dependence on all of them may create a clutter of impossible unified solution.

Effect of negative feedback – This whole situation may worsen when the person does not get good results from what he is doing as inspite of his efforts he is not able to get approval of so many differing nagging fractions who he is dependant on. A good feedback and results is an immense booster to the victims efforts in developing his own image and personality.

Impaired social behavior and conduct- Due to such constant inability to please so many different sources and winning their approvals such people develop immense self doubt and tend to perform poorly and avoid social interactions.

Wavering minds-Due to constant criticism and nagging such people very soon develop inability of believe and maintain in what their decisions are and hence come across as people who don’t maintain their thoughts. Sometimes this can lead to a development wherin they just see everything as a task and go about doing them in a goal oriented pursuit without any emotional indulgence or attachment.

Depersonalization/dissociative disorders- In such environment people develop this condition. Symptoms can be classified as either depersonalization or derealization. Depersonalization is described as feeling disconnected or estranged from one's body, thoughts, or emotions. Individuals experiencing depersonalization may report feeling as if they are in a dream or are watching themselves in a movie. They may feel like an outside observer of their own thoughts or body, and often report feeling a loss of control over their thoughts or actions. In some cases, individuals may be unable to accept their reflection as their own, or they may have out of body experiences. While depersonalization is a sense of detachment from one's self, derealization is described as detachment from one's surroundings. Individuals experiencing derealization may report perceiving the world around them as foggy, dreamlike/surreal, or visually distorted.

Inability to develop intimacy, develop new relationships and maintain relationships- As they depend on many contrasting sources for approvals they develop serious self doubt and loose the ability to develop and maintain intimacy in relationships. They often tend to avoid new relationships due to previous experiences of negative outlash.

Therefore every person, be it a growing child or a new employee, a new partner, or a new friend or a new job is like a new seed we plant. The more good positive support t we provide the plant better the fruit we will get. I would not be too far from truth if I say that our minds and personality is hugely dependant and shaped by people around us who are largely responsible for what we turn out to be.

I love her but she has died. Now at that instant I feel alone without her can you tell me what I have to do.

I love her but she has died. Now at that instant I feel alone without her can you tell me what I have to do.
We all know it is a really tough time when somebody close to you has died. It's important that you know how to move on with your life. It may seem difficult at first, like you're never going to stop missing them, but you have to move on. It's essential. For some people, the grieving process will last a couple weeks. For others, it will take years. Don't allow others to tell you to feel a certain way. It's okay to be angry, sad, or despaired. However, it's also okay to feel happy, and to let go when you're ready. Get support. Even if you are not the type of person who normally shares their feelings, it is important to recognize that opening up is not a sign of weakness. Talking to others will help you heal by easing your emotional burden. Talk to your friends and family. They will probably want to help you, but they may not know how. Let them know what you need. It's okay to have alone time, but do not shut people who love you out. Turn to your faith. If you're religious, draw comfort from praying, meditation, or other rituals. Talk to people in your religious community for support. Establish new routines. The death of a loved one will bring about many new responsibilities. In addition, the old day to day tasks will change emotionally. It may be beneficial to eat dinner at a different time, shop at a different grocery store, or take a different route to work. However, you should avoid making any life-altering decisions (i.e. moving or changing jobs) directly after your loved one has died. You do not need this added stress. Accept your feelings. While you may think that you can outrun grief, you can't hide from it forever, and postponing it may lead to mental and physical health problems. The best way to move past it is to accept that it's there. Express your feelings in a way that helps you, be it writing in a journal, getting involved in an organization, or making a scrapbook. Look after yourself physically. While emotional reactions are expected after a death, there are also physical symptoms to grief. Loss of appetite, nausea and stomach pain, intestinal upset, and sleep disturbances/loss of energy often present themselves when someone is experiencing grief. By taking care of your body, you will also help heal your mind. Do your best to get enough sleep and eat right. Exercise is a good way to help increase your ability to sleep and eat. In addition, it causes your body to produce endorphins, which will help lift your mood. Avoid using drugs or alcohol to "numb the pain." The pain will eventually wane, but it is important to realize that this takes time. Do not get frustrated with yourself if it takes longer than you want it to.

Hello Dr. I need to ask you that how to get rid of stress. As I take lot of stress. How do I tackle it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Hello Dr. I need to ask you that how to get rid of stress. As I take lot of stress. How do I tackle it.
First of all, the intensity of stress is in the perception. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Apart from that, all your emotions need to be dealt with by expression i.e. you need to talk about the feelings. Then you need to exercise regularly, eat fiber foods (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), sleep at least 8 hours every day, learn Yoga and meditation, learn stress management, and do a personality development course. Because you may be into studies, follow a tight schedule, with good breaks and study habits. If group study helps you, do it with the right people. If tutoring is required, arrange for the same. These should see you through successfully without the stress.
