I don't know why I don't get mood of reading at morning or afternoon time but I can only interested in night reading is any problems with me?

Dear lybrate user, every individual has different habit, so it is only your habit to read in night times, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets. Parrots are talking and dogs are dancing. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person. Please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

If she is engaged to someone else, she is taken, period. You cannot force yourself on her, and neither is that type of relationship worth it. I don't even know if you have spoken to her about your feelings. If you have not, and you are still feeling so strongly for her, you may have a lot of vulnerability and this is not a desirable trait in a boy for any girl's attraction. You may have some problem with relating with members of the opposite sex for various reasons. I suggest that you meet with a counselor and seek some help in this regard. When we are in a relationship, the other person must want to be in the relationship too. Now it appears that you are caught hook, line, and sinker into her and are finding it difficult to come out. The thing to do is to distract yourself by attending some personality development courses, conversational courses and definitely attend some counseling. You must learn to respect women and their choices and leave it if the person does not feel like relating to you. At your age, you must focus on your studies and make yourself 'marketable' by developing a good career.

Many Faces of Depression : Could that unexplained headache be Depression?

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Many Faces of Depression : Could that unexplained headache be Depression?
Shruti (name changed) aged 25 years, BA, homemaker and mother of two kids was a good cook and managed her house to perfection, much to anybody's envy until one day she started experiencing sudden severe headache and backache.
These symptoms made her incapable of carrying out her household duties as efficiently as she used to earlier.
Concerned with her pain & apparent symptoms severity, her husband took her to a general physician who prescribed a battery of tests including MRI Brain only to find no abnormality.
Attending Physician prescribed some multivitamin syrups & pain killer medicines & also tried to assure the family that NOTHING was wrong with Shruti.
However, she continued to complain of body aches and headaches, with resultant chaos on home management front compelling her husband to hire a maid to look after all the work including health of Shruti.
Shruti started feeling guilty about this & she started remaining aloof and also had trouble sleeping at night.
Frustrated with the added financial pressure and Shruti's ever increasing health complains, her husband accused her of faking it in order to avoid doing work.
Her in-laws added fuel to the fire citing it was all a drama. This further added to Shruti's sense of guilt and her appetite significantly reduced. 4 months after onset of these symtoms, Shruti lost 10kg weight.
She started remaining on the bed for hours and hardly interacted with anyone. She also started voicing ideas of ending her life in order to relieve everyone off her responsibility & enabling them to lead a happy life!
Now concerned, her parents took the matter in their hands & took her to a psychiatrist.
At the psychiatrist’s clinic, after detailed evaluation , Shruti was diagnosed to be suffering from depression (severe without psychotic symptoms) and the psychiatrist pointed out that the headaches & unexplained body aches were a the starting points of depression itself. She was started on medications and counselling therapy and within 2 months time she recovered completely & once again happily assumed her normal HOME MINISTERS ROLE!
Depression is one of the most common mental disorder and seen in every 4 out of 100 persons as per World health organization (WHO) data
When one thinks of depression; a sad, tearful face comes to mind. But depression is more than just that. unexplained headaches, body pains, sleeping difficulties are often the presenting complaints of depression. Other presentations of depression are chronic tiredness, joint pain,back pain, gastrointestinal problems including frequent acidity, indigestion, appetite changes etc. without any probable detectable physical cause
Depression contributes greatly to the disability caused by headache and backaches. More than 50% of patients with depression who visit general practitioners complain only of physical symptoms and in most cases, these symptoms include pain. If physicians test all pain patients for depression, they might discover 60% of currently undetected depression in their OPD.
Complete Recovery from an episode of depression is possible & achievable to everyone after proper treatment with medicines, counselling sessions & lifestyle modifications!
Next time while visiting your general Physician for any of aforementioned pain symptoms, do ask.....''AM I SUFFERING FROM DEPRESSION? DO I NEED TO SEE A PSYCHIATRIST? AM I RECEIVING ANY MEDICINE WHICH SHOULD BE TAKEN ONLY UNDER SUPERVISION OF A PSYCHIATRIST??''
Remember, Mental Illnesses are TREATABLE!!

Hello, If you have soft corner for poor people and you genuinely want to help them, so get associated with any of the NGOs which run such programmes for poor population. This way, you can do both - your studies as well as helping poor. I appreciate your thoughts! Go ahead with the positive thinking as you are doing social work and it's not shameful work at all! But a balance between your personal and professional life is very important, so that either of them shouldn't interfere each other! Also, don't make it an obsession, because earning money is also an important source for helping others. Respect your parents thinking as well as they have spent entire life for you, so that you could stand on your feet. Respect them as no one else will come to help you in time of need. You will be left alone! Make them understand by proving yourself efficient for both - your profession of engineering and helping poor. This way your and your parents wishes will be fulfilled! Rest in on you.

Hello you must have noticed it before your menses time, if you have a lot of anger, mood swings problems before fifteen days, starting your menstrual periods then you are suffering from premenstrual syndrome. It is very common now a days, it is due to deficiency of essential nutrients in dieat and lack of execise. You should start taking proper nutrition and do some execise daily which resolve this problem. Homoeopathic medicines have wonders in it.

Thanks for the query. Since when do have these concentration difficulties in studies? Starting from simple to more complex issues; we usually are able to concentrate better when whatever we are reading/doing is interesting for us & NOT MERELY DRAB WORK! Hence, you can try to make studies interesting by devising punmonics, trying to figure out practical applications of whatever you are studying with help of teachers & elders around. Secondly, try & choose subjects/courses which you are really interested in studying & just do not study for the heck of getting a degree/academic qualification. Lastly, studies have time & again proven that average concentration span of human mind is around 30 minutes. Hence, if you are able to study for 30 minutes; you are actually doing good! You can devise a 30 minutes study-10 minutes break (strictly 10 minutes!) schedule to improve your concentration. Good Luck.

I feeling depressed and inferior by over thinking about the situation. How can be strong and overcome this situation.
Lybrate-user. Feeling depressed due to situations in life may be due to poor adaptive skills or inability to deal with stressful situation. This could be due to sveral reasons including generalised anxiety or depresion. If you feel that the anxiety is uncontrollable and you continue feeling depressed for last 15 days or more, visit me. You might need an anxiolytic and antidepressant along with counseling for few weeks. Good luck.

Sir.I have stress/anxiety disorders for last many years. And now it seems like growing and interfering with my day to day life. When i am doing routine things (brainless works). Its ok. .But. I when i try to think/plan conciously or try to sit in peace. Anxiety shoots back. And . It seems as my whole feelings/imagination is lost. As both feeling & imagination requires calm mind, which i dont have. All in all. I am a guy with lack of feelings/imagination and hence depressed

Masters in counseling psychology, Counseling psychologist, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapist

You are not a guy with a lack of feelings and imagination. Actually you have too much feeling and imagination, but of the negative kind. You are definitely looking for some kind of security, regarding something important to you. That is causing the constant anxiety and making you dysfunctional. Get rid of any negative thoughts about some experiences you had in the past. And stop looking for a certainty in everything you do. Things may have different outcomes but you cant stop trying. The fear of things not happening your way causes anxiety, so give your 100 percent to what you do and be ready for the outcome. Stop looking for certainty in everything, nobody can guarantee it. All the best.

It is likely that there is a non-cardiac cause for this. Angiography may be done to rule out even a remote possibility of heart disease, and you can go ahead with it. If it is normal, then a psychiatrist consultation will be needed. In the meantime, get a thyroid profile and complete hemogram done (if not already done). If they are okay and angiography is normal, and you are cleared by the cardiologist, anti-anxiety medicines such as paroxetine or escitalopram or propranolol may prove very useful to you. These are not sleeping pills and will not make you drowsy. Take care!

I am a student and I have a very anger ness to all friend. Plzz help too keep it out.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
*How to deal with angry and hateful thoughts?* Angry, hateful thoughts are like poison – literally poison.  They not only pollute our minds, such thoughts physically release very harmful substances into our body.  Anger and hatred toward another person is like trying to hurt the offender by ourselves drinking poison.  That doesn’t mean the other person should not be challenged or stopped, BUT that should be done with love.  In other words because we LOVE that jiva (part and parcel of the Lord) we don’t  want them to suffer so we try to correct their activity so they will not suffer in the future for what they are doing.  So my humble advice is if you find someone being dishonest try to correct them with love.  If you can’t do that, at least take a breath and think before you speak.  Words are like arrows.  Once released they cannot be retracted.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - How To Handle It?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Pondicherry
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - How To Handle It?

Do you have a family member or a close friend who is suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder? Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a disorder, which causes anxiety, and is also known as anxiety disorder. The disorder is featured by continuous, uncontrollable and unpleasant thoughts. OCD causes a patient’s mind to get stuck on a certain inclination. Obsessive thoughts and compulsive behavior patterns indicate OCD.
Dealing with an OCD patient

After the initial diagnosis, a patient with OCD enters the stage of acute treatment. The treatment aims at coping with and overcoming the symptoms of OCD.

  1. Education: Patients with OCD should get to know as much as possible about the disorder they are suffering from. You should help an OCD affected patient by providing them the opportunity to read about the disease, and talk to other patients, along with regular appointments with a clinician. A treatment plan has to be developed. OCD patients in an acute treatment stage should be taken to a doctor every week, in order to discuss their progress.
  2. Therapy: Therapy helps them cope with the symptoms of OCDCognitive behavioral psychotherapy is undertaken for treating patients with OCD. This mode of treatment gives the patients psychological tools, which help them resist the ill effects of the condition.
  3. Medication: Medicines are not required for all OCD patients. Some patients diagnosed with the condition are prescribed selective serotonin re uptake inhibitor or SSIs for dealing with the symptoms of OCD. The medicines should be taken for a period of three to four weeks before any results are experienced. 12 weeks are required for a patient to know whether the medicines are working or not. An SRI is ineffective in some cases, and you may be prescribed a non-selective serotonin re uptake inhibitor like Clomipramine. This affects the serotonin, but has positive impacts on other neurotransmitters in your brain.
  4. Family support: Family members play an important part in helping OCD patients manage their condition by providing constant support, staying calm, and being educated about the condition. OCD patients should be treated with affection and should be complimented often. The observations of the patient by family members help a doctor in determining the patient’s condition. As a family member or close friend, you must never be critical about the patient or state negative comments about his condition. Such feedback causes the patient’s condition to worsen. Family members should discuss all problems they face regarding the patient to a doctor.

Patients who have completed OCD treatment require monthly check ups with a doctor for six months. A year of cognitive therapy is required to be carried out, along with the intake of prescribed medicines. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.
