Please accept my condolences. Where is your father? It seems that your mother?s sudden demise has triggered loneliness and depression in you. In this circumstance, I would have assumed that your father may be there for you! Is he also affected badly that he cannot help you? Your insecurity vis-a-vis relationships may make you test your near and dear ones to the point of either pushing them away or making them push you away. You must immediately become aware of that and make a sincere effort to stop that and work towards preserving and nurturing relations you have. We are all social animals, gregarious by nature, and need each other to live life well. For healthy living we need to become interdependent. When we are young we are dependent, after that we become independent, but the ultimate social development is to be able to reach a state of interdependence. There may be other issues underlying your current situation. You will need to meet with a counselor, and if necessary a psychiatrist, to iron out the infringing and unresolved matters from your distant past or immediate past. For your studies, I suggest you attend tutorials where the collective seriousness may impact you positively. Even private tutorship may help. There are also some exercises I have that will help, but it involves other people too. Although you may not like what is going on, it is good that it has come up now, so that you can resolve them better, being younger. Do respect your long-distant relationship with your boyfriend and do not test him to the point of his wanting to quit the friendship. That will be a body-blow with more difficult consequences to follow. Also learn to love yourself well, and indulge in yourself without becoming narcissistic.

When to Seek Medical Help for Epilepsy

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist
Ask Free Question
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.

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.

There are lots of simple ways to cut down on the amount of alcohol you drink.

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.

Age is nothing to do with enjoying your activities and not wanting to visit friends and family. And you are just 22! it is a person's mental and emotional state that is responsible for such thoughts and behaviours. I have seen 75 year old people enjoying tremendously in social gatherings and enjoying their life. Yet I have also seen 15 year olds so disappointed in life that they have cut them selves from active social interactions. This means that it is your own experiences which make you respond to life in different ways. 1. I am sensing disappointment and sadness with yourself and others, from your statements. I suggest that you undergo counselling to learn tips and techniques to manage social relationships and expectations from self and others which seems to have taken a hit in your case. Withdrawing from people may be a short term solution but never a long term solution because humans are social animals and need each other for their survival and achieve their fullest potential. 2. Some amount of self awareness and" other" awareness can help you to build bridges again with your friends and being able to appreciate differences while accepting similarities is definitely a desirable trait in people in these fast changing times. 3. Disinterest in your own actions might be coming from doing stuff that you don't want to do or may be below your skill level or some other reason. A counsellor will be able to help you to direct your daily and weekly activities in a direction which makes sense and meaning to you so that you feel a sense of achievement and fulfillment.

The Surprising Role of Nutrition in Mental Health

The human body can be compared to a very sophisticated engine that gets its power supply from the food that is eaten. Various organs require fuel for different activities be it walking, standing, stretching or even just regular maintenance where cells are constantly replaced.

The brain is one of the most complex organs in the human body. While it may not do a stretching or a jogging, it constantly needs power supply to function effectively. And as is very obvious, the body reflects the eating patterns. It is not likely that a person eating a very healthy diet would end up obese; nor does a person who is athletic eat a lot of unrefined and processed foods.

The power supply also defines how effectively the organs function, especially in the brain. Good nutrition helps good functioning of the brain. Recent studies have shown that a healthy diet can help avoid mental disorders like depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder (ocd), etc. This field of study is called the nutritional psychiatry.

Listed below are some food substances and how they affect brain functioning:

1. Carbohydrates: these induce the production of insulin, which causes release of sugar into the body. Increased amount of sugar in the body produces better activity and mood. Tryptophan, a significant neurotransmitter is also released and further enhances mood and well-being. Eating fruits and whole grains, which contain a good amount of carbohydrates is believed to have beneficial effects on the brain, albeit slower in onset.

2. Proteins: foods such as fish, eggs, dairy, greens, peas, legumes are rich in protein and contain amino acids, which are the essential ingredients of the various neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. Lack of amino acids like tyrosine can impair production of serotonin, leading to decreased feeling of well-being.

3. Fats: the gray matter of the brain contains about 50% polyunsaturated fats, and various essential fatty acids are very essential for optimal brain functioning. Decreased levels of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are shown to cause depression. Decreased levels of omega-3 also leads to dyslexia and autism.

4. Minerals: various minerals are very essential for proper functioning of the brain, though they are required in very minute quantities. Calcium, chromium, iodine, iron, lithium, selenium, and zinc are some of the minerals identified as important for brain function.

5. Vitamins:
A. B-complex: vitamin b2 and b6 have been proven to enhance mood and improve cognitive performance.
B. Vitamin b12: in addition to delaying the onset of dementia, it also improves cerebral functioning.
C. Folate: reduced levels lead to depression and also limit the functioning of antidepressants.
As is evident, nutrition plays a very important role and a little care can help improve brain functioning to a large extent.

Dear, nice question. Hopefully you are really enjoying having twins. You are the lucky one, I hope. Let me assure you, there will not be any unexpected behavior patterns in twins. They will be as normal children. There could be some parellel behavior traits, but that too is not a concern. You need to behave to each child and nurture each child seperately. You may take advise from a psychologist. I may have to provide many tips if you post a private question to me. You may also search internet. God bless you, children. Take care.

Hi, I'm 32 year old married man. I got married about four year ago and it was an arranged marriage. Now I am hopeless due to hyper behavior of my wife. Whenever I deny something to my wife or try to make her understand something, a long argument take place and if I am not agree with her than she becomes hyper and at last she behaves like insane. Try to leave the home immediately or try to harm herself by taking the knife at her throat (even on throat of my 2.5 year old son). She had also tried to jump from the running car (with son) ones time because she was scolded her for some expensive purchase. But just after half an hour she becomes normal and accepts her insane behavior was wrong. She also accepts her fault in part and complaining a headache just after the incident. Initially I ignored this but throughout time I see repeated pattern. Her some relatives told me that she possess this type of behavior since childhood and her farther and grandmother also have the same pattern. Is this any type of genetically disease? Or psychological problem only. Is there any cure for it? Please suggest me.

Hello lybrate-user your wife's behavior could be genetic and / or socially learned. Social learning happens as a protective learned behavior. She has seen others behaving in particular way in stressful situation and that is was she her learned response to any stressful situation. The good news is that we human being have a capability to re-structure our response through our will and freedom of choice. I believe as she regrets her bahavior later and feel sorry. She will be willing to see someone who could help her learn and restructure her stress response mechanism. Any behavior modification technique along with some stress management tools will help her. Look for some one in your area as she might be more comfortable talking to someone in person. Both of you need to keep both patience and faith. Your love for each other is what help you sail through this tough time. If you can't find someone I will be available for telephonic consultation and intervention. In that case feel free to send me personal message. Wishing you both much success and fulfilled life togather.

When you take any medicine it leads to some other problems. Better to control yourself. Your loneliness is the main enemy it caused depressive thoughts. Do not think about suicidal aspects. If you think like that your thoughts may also come like that. If anything happen better to express others. Whether it is good or bad. Better to share with others. Better to maintain close relations with friends and family members. Do not be alone. Do not sit one place. Visit other places. Better to develop busy work schedules. Concentrate on your work. Plan about good career. Better to imagine good future. Feel always happy and be friendly with others. Be sociable and feel always comfortable. Think always positive matters. Feel always be a good person.
