Dear lybrate-user, Don't worry everything will be fine. First good thing is about this relationship that as you said he didn't harm you physically or mentally. This is you who stuck with him you are only 21 and you have a big life in front of you. Only one primary thing you have to do that believe on god. Give thanks to god to be always with you. You know what, may you think it is silly but he was not the right partner for your whole life may be you will get a good one instead of him. That's why now you are not with him. Trust on yourself always make new friends, go for a tour anywhere your favorite place start with a new life a new adity a cool adity if you can't come here you can call us for telephonic counseling and you will feel better. You can check our website.

Dear Doctor, My brother has schizophrenia for more than 8 years now. He is not able to get recovered from his situation. Though he is able to talk to us like a normal person, he is not able to take a responsibility. He is jobless and showing no interest in anything. I am worried about his future. He is under medication. But he is not getting better. Medicines control his hallucinations for the time being. But it's not curing him completely. Please advice.

Schizophrenia has a strong genetic component. And has poor prognosis. Complete cure may not be possible. You should all mold yourselves as per his world and instead of forcing him to accept your reality, let him make peace in his reality. Putting pressure will only worsen it. He may start working a little when you operate from his framework of perception.

How does alcohol increases confidence but side effects many other parts? Do we have any instant way to increase confidence apart from self motivation and counselling? Like some house nuska.

Hi lybrate-user, alcohol is bad for the liver and it does not exactly increase confidence, it reduces inhibition, thus making one excitable for a brief while. On the contrary one can say or do something under the influence of alcohol which might be embarrassing, later. You could rehearse speaking infront of the mirror to boost your confidence. Most improtantly, there is space for all kinds of people our world- introverts and extroverts too. So, accept yourself how you are. Work on multiplying your strengths. And remmeber it is important to speak relevant things, not a lot of things. Good luck.

Im a singer! Pls tell about tips and exercise for our vocal chord! What is the good way for better voice quality sound?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

No amount of alcohol is safe. Using mood altering substances will harm you some or the other way. Regular consumption of beer can lead to physical & psychological dysfunctionalities. 1 in 10 people develop a dependency on alcohol and they become an addict. You are just 21yrs old; make healthy choices. Healthy recreational activities will be pleasurable. Stay healthy stay safe.

Dreams are dreams. Dreams does not need to be explained with well reasoned logic. Whatever you think in the day or thoughts of your mind can be reflected in dream. As young age of 20 it is common to feel attracted and desire for some physical contact. So its a reflection of your thought or want for intimacy. It is normal in this age. Not every dream is meaningful. So do not give it a deep thought. It is normal. Just let it go.

Ways To Improve Productivity In Mental Problems And Substance Abuse

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Ahmedabad
Ways To Improve Productivity In Mental Problems And Substance Abuse

Mental health crisis and substance abuse - ways to improve productivity 


Behavioral illness—depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and other issues—is a dark place. Many—perhaps even most—of your friends and family members will not understand what you are going through. You must reach out anyway. Identify and rely on those within your immediate support network who do understand, who are committed to helping you through a long-term plan for coping and recovery. 
 

1. Decide to do absolutely everything in your power to to improve your behavioral health. Commit to change what you can and work around what you can’t. Flatly refuse to let this challenge define you—either as a passive victim, or worse, by taking pride and entitlement in it—and you will find open doors to vast improvements in your quality of life, even if you are never fully ‘cured.’

2. Be willing to recognize and acknowledge what is going on. Monitor yourself. Know the warning signs or triggers for your condition, and get help early when you recognize them rather than ignoring them or trying to manage them yourself.

3. Get professional help. Find a credible, credentialed professional trained in psychiatric methods.


4. Never stop contributing to the world. If you are wrestling with mental health or substance abuse issues, your employment prospects may seem bleak. If your circumstances force you out of your chosen career path, resist the temptation to give up. If you are able, find a career pivot that will allow you to work around your challenges. Even if you are unable to ‘work,’ find ways to contribute meaningfully, even if they feel small at the moment. With every diligent act of productivity, you exercise control over your life and claim our common birthright of human dignity.

5. Let your story be heard. We exist in a culture that largely disavows mental illness. By appropriately sharing your story in positive, proactive ways, you not only take a crucial step toward management or recovery—you provide an essential ingredient in rewriting our cultural narrative of these issues—from the inside.


6. Educate yourself. Invest some time into reading up on mental illness. 

7. To the degree possible, make an effort to empathize.
 Strive to truly understand the experience of those who must confront the reality of mental illness on a daily basis. Tactfully reach out to affected friends and family for first-hand accounts to deepen your understanding of ‘a day in the life.’

8. Commit to being non-judgmental.

 Decide that you will let the facts and personal stories about mental illness come together for you, and that you will work to form an accurate and compassionate view of how they work—and what it really takes for a person to take back their mental health.

9. Reach outside of yourself with a willingness to help. 

Find at least one way to meaningfully help someone suffering from depression, anxiety, or other issues along their path toward coping with or recovering. Tactfully reach out to friends or family who experience mental disorder and listen to their stories. Find ways, big or small, to lend a hand, brighten their day, and lighten the load they carry. Show them you see them.

10. We must work to change public perception of mental health and mental health issues. 

In addition to the proper self-care and empathy I suggest above, each of us can be an agent for change, simply by breaking our own link in the vicious cycle.

Are You Emotionally Upset? 10 Ways to Get Over it!

Are You Emotionally Upset? 10 Ways to Get Over it!

Life has its ups and downs, but often we hold on to the downs for much longer than the actual event. While the trigger or anger, pain and hurt are beyond our control, the amount it can affect us is well within reach. Here are a few ways to cope better with emotional upsets.

  1. Give yourself a window to be upset: Be realistic and give yourself a time frame to give in to your emotions. Whether, angry, sad or frustrated tell yourself that you have only 1 day to be upset. In a way, this will diffuse the anger, frustration and once this time is over, you can start planning ahead.
  2. Take responsibility: Try analysing what you may have done to make the other person react in the way he or she did. Focus on what you could have done better and you will find yourself feeling more empowered.
  3. Get physical: Exercise and other forms of physical activity decrease stress hormones and increases the productions of endorphins or happy hormones that elevate the mind. Exercising also gives you time to focus on yourself without distractions.
  4. Express yourself: Whether it’s through art or writing, find an outlet for your emotions. This keeps it from being bottled up inside and gets the pain and frustration out of your system.
  5. Breathe: Breathing techniques like ujayii and anulom vilom can help calm the mind down when it is troubled and upset. These breathing techniques also keep your emotions from escalating.
  6. Get company: It is never a good idea to isolate yourself when you’re feeling blue. Instead, find people who you can open up to and share your thoughts with. This will give you a fresh perspective on what is going on.
  7. Look at both sides: No event is ever completely bad. No matter what may be troubling you look at both the good and bad sides of it. This can help minimise your loss and make it easier to let go of the problem.
  8. Do something different: The best way to get your mind off something is to give it something else to focus on. If you’re troubled by something that happened at work, go for a drive or play a sport. Similarly, if you’re having relationship trouble, go out with a few friends or read a book to take your mind off it.
  9. Visualize: Imagine the person or the event that is upsetting you as an object in your mind and visualise it melting away. Remind yourself that the anger or frustration you are feeling is worse than the person or event itself.
  10. Clean up: Organise your desk, your room or start cleaning up space around you. This will take attention away from whatever is troubling you and give you something to do. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hi lybrate-user, I have been through this during my own training. First you need to go back to the purpose of why you want to become a doctor. Then trace it forward by deciding what you can do immediately. Make daily target, simple ones which you can achieve. Don't take load which you can't handle. To start with, what are you going to do tomorrow? Write it down on a piece of paper and see how much you did. You are going through this so that one day you can understand the pain of others. So you are on the path of becoming a sensitive doctor. Best of luck!
