Dear, a person's behavior changes occasionally. When you talk about irritation, there could be reasons externally as well as internally. Some irritation outcomes are short and some have very long term effect. Please talk to him and be patient to know the details. Take care.

What disorder causes violenceness, I am feel violence attitude and innocence lost?

MBBS, M.D.(Gen.Medicine)
General Physician, Chennai
When the inner peace that is naturally present in every individual is lost then a violent attitude sets in. Factors that makes the inner peace disappear are indulgence in sensory pursuit, having no control over the mind and failure to nurture the inner peace through spiritual orientation. If you are able to realize the error, then slowly and steadily you can set right things.

I am 24 years old. Some times I get over tension. I can't stopped that type of activity. Many times I try treatment but no use. What will I do?

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello, take homoeopathic medication - schwabe's bacopa monierri 1x/ thrice daily and kali phos. 6x/ once at night - take them for 4 weeks. Management: there are few yoga poses which helps in calming your mind and relieves stress. Exercises: practice shavasana or corpse pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. (the mind and body are deeply connected. If the mind is occupied by thoughts and worries then the shavasana will be unsuccessful. Therefore one has to acquire the stability of the mind along with the stability of the body.) anuloma involves inhaling through both nostrils together and exhaling each breath alternately between the left and right nostrils. The thumb of the right hand is used to manipulate the right nostril, while the pinky and ring finger are used to control the left nostril. There are many other poses of yoga like balasan, setu bandha sarvangasan, uttanasan, garudasan, savasana, triconasana, viprita karani, marjaryasana, dhyana, bhujangasana, anulom-vilum, pranayam, etc. But first learn these under a qualified yoga-teacher as many poses are prohibited in certain diseases or medical conditions! another stress-buster can be getting involved in any of your hobbies (may be a childhood hobby which you used to enjoy a lot!) - dancing, singing, painting, listening to soothing music, playing musical instruments, etc. (believe me, you would really enjoy doing this alone as well or may be with your friends, kids).

Sir, I am 22 years old. I don't know what the problem is. But I feel that I have some psychotic problem. Why because: 1. I don't know how to behave with superiors when something wrong is noticed by me. I will be very anxiously shout about it infront of all. In remaining cases I will be showing almost (overly) respect & fear towards them. 2.Very very angry when something against my thoughts would happen. 3.Love to live alone without anyone (thinking I may perform better alone). 4.Slutter in the voice when speaking anxiously or angrily. Unable to deliver exact information what I have in my brain. 5.Rolling over of thoughts about this or that which makes instability of thoughts. 6.Complete Memory loss what I have learned previously. 7.Inability to understand / connect with lectures (about theoretical aspects only). 8.Dryness of mouth every hour especially when speaking with new people.

You are having panic attacks and need to meet with a counselor immediately. On that person?s advice you may have to meet with a doctor and get on medication if so advised. Even so you must continue with the counseling to develop coping mechanisms to face the daily challenges of life. Because you are not handling fear well, you tend to over-react to normal fear with abnormal panic attacks. Then your panic reaction, which is fear based, irritates you easily and gets you angry. In other words the anger/irritation is an escalation over the fear. This is not advisable and it is happening because you are not dealing well with the panic. Anger is a cover-up feeling for the fear, and people may mistakenly respond to the anger whilst the scare remains unresolved and it may also increase because of the discomfort you have caused to others with the anger!!! About the issue itself: Do you know if this is a family trait, or is the family by anyways less to socialize, or have you had any problem with fear because of some family or childhood experience? Have you ever been embarrassed in public by someone that it has left an indelible mark in your personality? You can take the answers to these questions to a counselor and resolve the same. Any way you must deal with your fear of people and it will be the best solution to your problem. You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. In the meantime do some confidence building exercises by attending a personality development course, public speaking skills course (I suggest you join the Toastmasters Club), work out at a gym to build good self-image, and join social events to practice your skills. Surprisingly many people are often in the same boat as you, and so you are not alone. The very people you are intimidated by may be afraid of you too, though not to this extent!!!! There are three important developments to have to make an autonomous personality: Awareness, intimacy and spontaneity. If you are super aware or too conscious of yourself, it will affect the intimacy and spontaneity. Although your problem is now directly to do with intimacy, you can see that they are all connected. Go and work on these matters with a counselor for this level of panic reaction to disappear from your life for good.

No man is an island. We all need people and are social animals, gregarious by nature and interdependent. Your loneliness will do more harm than good. You cannot pretend in life to be happy. You need to interact with people and develop tolerance. Not everything in life is going to be according your wish and desire. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

My father has an illegal relationship with other woman. I and my mother try to stop it daily but are unsuccessful .we both are in serious depression. My condition is just to kill him or kill myself. My mom, she goes on thinks about it, cries for long hours and also suffering from sleeplessness. What to do? I need a best answer as soon as possible.

Your father might be indulging in this relationship due to various reasons, which you can understand after few years. Does he fulfill the responsibility of a father, does he abuse you. I can understand your mom s depression. Take them to a psychiatrist to discuss about this extra marital issue. Do not have any violent thoughts with him. He is a person who needs to be analyzed and helped.

6 Signs of Avoidant Personality Disorder, 2nd Most Common Psychiatric Disorder

M.Sc - Disaster Mitigation, MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
6 Signs of Avoidant Personality Disorder, 2nd Most Common Psychiatric Disorder

Feelings of inadequacy for long durations and being extremely sensitive to what others think of you is a disorder called avoidant personality disorder symptom. Such feelings of inadequacy in turn push the person to become isolated from the society and the person avoids people, work, and other activities. Social and occupational functioning is affected as the person is extremely sensitive and has very low self-esteem. Symptoms of avoidant personality disorder are:

  1. Avoiding social interactions: people suffering from this disorder avoid almost all sorts of interpersonal contact since they lie with the fear of rejection, disapproval and criticism.
  2. Avoiding risks: they avoid taking personal risks or being involved in activities which seem new, because they fear that they will embarrass themselves.
  3. Socially unplugged: they are not willing to get involved with individuals unless they are absolutely certain of being liked by the person.
  4. Preoccupied with negative perception: the idea of being criticized or rejected in social functions is so deep within their psyche that they are often preoccupied with only this thought in their minds.
  5. Inferiority complex: people suffering from avoidant personality disorder consider themselves as good for nothing, unappealing, and inferior to everyone else.
  6. Avoid intimacy: they are always reluctant to get into intimate relationships because they feel that they will be shamed and ridiculed. Because of such fears, they let go of relationships where they would have been genuinely cherished too.

The only treatment possible for this disorder is psychotherapy. While some people opt for long term therapy, most people usually visit a psychotherapist only when they feel overwhelmed with their fear and emotions.

When to Seek Medical Help for Epilepsy

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

When to Seek Medical Help for Epilepsy

Epilepsy is a form of chronic disorder and it is characterized by recurrent seizures. The episodes of epileptic seizures may differ from person to person. These seizures could be a result of genetic disorder or a result of trauma or stroke. During a seizure, a patient may also experience symptoms of neurological disorders and sometimes lose consciousness.

Medical help for epilepsy
Epilepsy itself cannot be cured using medication, but proper medicines help in eliminating recurrent seizures. These medicines stabilize the electrical activity within the brain preventing seizures.

How effective is the medication for epilepsy?
The success of controlling seizures using medicines depends on the type and severity of the epilepsy. Medicines for epilepsy are usually very effective and may fully keep seizures under control. However, controlling seizures caused due to brain problems may be more difficult. Usually, epilepsy medicines can control seizures for a long period of time when they are taken regularly.

When is medical help needed?
The decision about when to start medicines for epilepsy is a tricky one. This is because a first seizure cannot confirm whether a person has an on-going epilepsy problem. A second seizure may occur after many years or may not happen at all. Prediction of seizures is also quite difficult.

The severity of seizures also indicates when to start medicines for treatment. In case a first seizure is quite severe, medication should be started at once. Some people have very mild seizures even though they may be recurring in nature, and medication can be avoided in this situation.

All the pros and cons must be thought over before starting medications for the treatment of epilepsy. It is advisable to wait for a second seizure and then start medications for treatment. In most cases, medication is started after a second seizure occurs, twelve months within the first seizure. You should always consult a doctor to know when you need to start taking medicines to treat the condition.

For making the most out of the medicines to control seizures, you should follow certain steps:

  1. You must take medications exactly as your doctor has prescribed.
  2. Before switching to generic versions of your medicines or before taking other prescribed medicines, you must consult your doctor.
  3. You should never stop taking the medicines.
  4. In case you experience enhanced depression, mood swings and suicidal thoughts, you should talk to your doctor immediately.
  5. In case you have migraine, you should let your doctor know so that he can prescribe you anti-epileptic medicines, which also prevent migraines.

Medicines cannot treat the underlying cause of epilepsy, but these help in controlling seizures and this is the most common symptom of epilepsy. Medication should be started at a proper time and must be continued without stopping.

I am 21 years old I am not able to sleep at night, I think due to anxiety or stress so I don't feel energetic so can anyone suggest me a sleeping pill or tablet which is effective for me?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Hi there ~ not being able to sleep at night may be due to many reasons and as you list out it may be due to excessive anxiety or stress and your poor energy may also related to the anxiety disorder. I hope you consult a psychiatrist to get a right medication for sleep prescribed. There are ways in which you can control or cope with anxiety and thus get your sleep to become normal. Please however consult a psychologist for counseling and a neuropsychiatrist for medications.

Sir, A case of love failure. I loved a girl but she likes someone else. Depression has been mine regular thing. I feel like to commit suicide. Does consulting a psychiatrist helps me out of the situation?

DPM, Msc Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Muzaffarpur
Hi lybrate-user, at this age these incidences are very common. Love is a broader term; the one who is made for you will meet you at proper time but you have to wait for that golden opportunity. To commit suicide is a weird and most condemnable thing to do. One should not even think of it. Your parents and family members love you a lot and please think of all those who love you not due to your education or looks but just as you are. Be you and feel special. Always try to improve yourself as a person, and compete with yourself. Learn from your past mistakes and always focus on the good things that you have achieved in your life instead of looking on what bad things have happened with you. You have to take charge of your happiness. Is your happiness so cheap that a lady or a gentleman can ruin it completely? Rather be special and setup an example for people and pear group. Make your presence special, make your smile special, make your guesture and posture special, in short love yourself. Your present problem states that you are not in love with yourself, that's why you feel in negative way. Now answer honestly who would purchase stale bread? Obviously no one. Similarly, think who would love a guy who doesn't love himself? So I think you got your answer, be brave. Babies don't leave walking due to fear of falling, we don't leave driving due to fear of accidents then why shall we feel negative in life. It happens Nikhil, believe me life is a suspense and I am sure you need to prove yourself. I am pretty sure you would make any girl feel special but that lady is not so special to deserve your love. Please do not waste your energy and divert it into some positive aspects so that your energy may bring light in many lives. Definitely, You should consult a psychiatrist for channelising your negative energy into positive energy and make you feel special. :)

MD
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Your father is treated with a psychologist or a physician. Please make this clear. Bcoz a psychologist cann't prescribe medicines. Also if these medicines are given only for short period for sleep correction then no issues. Better to taper them off slowly. But your father really needs proper medicines to reduce their stress related issues they need to consult to a psychiatrist.
