Hello. I frequently experience moments of isolation even when outwardly things seem to be normal. Sometimes I feel extremely sad and guilty for no reason and burst out crying. Usually, I am in a sad and pensive state of mind, I don't deviate very often. I seldom feel happy or angry. I like studying, but whenever I'm without a book, I feel very guilty and insecure to a heightened level. I'm 16. Please help me.

Is permanent cure of schizophrenia possible? If person stop medicine when he or she is normal and stable Is there is a chance to happen again?

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Schizophrenia is treatable disorder just like diabetes and any metabolic disease. It requires a course of medications initially to bring severe symptoms under control and then stabilise with lesser doses. A maintenance therapy of minimal dose might be required to prevent relapses. This maintenance therapy (in a patient who has successfully achieved remission of symptoms with regular medications) may range from 2-5 years. In about 1/3 rd cases of frequent relapses or severer symptoms maintenance therapy may be required for even a longer time.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia or alzheimer's are not common. Many young people do complain having problems with memory. These problems are due to either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. You may contact a clinical psychologist or neurologist for memory test and further investigation. Take care.

Sir , I am masturbating for about 5-6 years. I am not able to control it , even if I try to control it , once if I am feeling a little comfortable I always start masturbating for even a very pity reason. At present I am feeling very weak , I am getting afraid of even a small mosquito or a housefly when I am alone and they make some sound or sit on any part of my body. And I am not able to converse properly if I am involved in any argument I am shaking and shivering as if someone is going to kill me. I don' t know why but I am not able to control my emotions. I am getting demotivated easily , I am getting angry for pity reason , sometimes I am getting very depressed. I don' t know what happened to me. I keep thinking of even a small situation for many days , and this is one of the reason why I am always absent minded. I am not able to keep relationships bonds proper even with my own family members (brothers , sisters , mother , father aunt , uncle etc ) . I am not able to concentrate in my studies , I know I can do it I understand things , their concepts easily only if I read and understand it with full dedication but I am not able to stay focussed towards my studies I study only for 20-30 minutes and I start losing my energy and concentration. But if I play I play properly , energetically but after that I am very - very much tired. I am no able to handle even a small situation , that other people does no even bother about .I am not able to fight with anyone I am very bad looking many people say this. These are my problems. What can I do for them?

Dear lybrate user, I think you are very sensitive, anxious and underconfident. I guess you are carrying some shame and/or guilt because of your compulsive masturbation. I appreciate your self awareness and your willingness to change. I think, you need to understand your own worth. Make a list of all good things about you. Write all positive points about your personality and skills that you have. Don't bother about what others say about you. Write what you think about yourself - all positive points. Stick this list at a place where you can see it often. Believe in this. You are only 17, you have whole life ahead of you. What you do today is going to affect your future. If you try to make yourself stronger physically and mentally, you will have a better future. Have a goal in life which would be rational and feasible. Start working towards achieving this goal. Make a step by step, concrete plan, have a fixed routine and go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Learn some communication skills which will help you in having cordial relations with people around you. Have some exercise routine - may be play some games (physical games and not computer games), go for cycling, yoga, mountaineering etc whatever you like. This will give you more self confidence and help in reducing your anxiety. Any person who is happy and confident looks good. So don't worry about looks. Once you start feeling better about yourself, you will like yourself - looks wise. If possible talk to your school/college counsellor who will help you to get rid of this habit.

Dear , because you have not given any other symptoms other than headache and memory loss, the problem seems to be stress related. Tension means in one way anxiety or stress. You are aged 44. There could be many reasons to get stressed or to be anxious about. Stress is part of everyday life. We need know the stress and learn to live with it. Fighting the stress causes anxiety. Anxiety and apprehension further causes negative and obsessive thinking. Please let me know your stress and life pattern. I will help you overcome those areas with positive approach and cognitive therapy. Take care.

When you work time. Better to eat chicklets. Eat small tiffins. Middle of the time take some fruits. Eat small meal to reduce tension. Talk with your collegues. Develop friendly nature of work. Better to develop smiling nature in work. Be relaxed after work time with your wife. Do not smoke regularly. Slowly avoid the number of cigarettes. Drinking red wine is good for health.

He seems to be suffering from Paranoid disorder, consult your nearby psychiatrist on how to treat him, against his will. Since he himself is a lawyer, you need to seek the help of another lawyer and file a petition to the magistrate under the Mental Health Act 1987, for involuntary treatment. The petition can be given by the closest family member. The judge will summon him, and he would request the opinion from a government psychiatric hospital and then decide on future treatment course. All the best.

How to remove negative thoughts

Darkness is absence of light and similarly negative thoughts are absence of positive thoughts. The answer to negative thoughts is to bring positive thoughts back. Ideal mind is devils workshop and will always think negative. Here are the ways by which you can remove negative thoughts.
Think differently as taught by Adi Shankaracharya. Once Menaka approached Arjuna with lust and said that she wanted to have a son like him with him. Arjuna said that why wait for 25 years, consider me as you son from today.
Think opposite as taught by Patanjali. For example, if you are thinking of stealing, then silently start thinking of charity.
Think positive as taught by Buddha. Make a list of positive actions to be done today the first thing in the morning and concentrate on that list. Divert your mind to the pending jobs in hand. This is a type of behavioral therapy.

You may never find a 'perfect' job in all your life and you must be able to accept this and take what is there. Since you are a child of an alcoholic, there are certain issues you will face that are very similar to the alcoholic person but in a mild form. You will suffer from a problem know as, Adult children of alcoholics syndrome (acoas), for which there are treatment techniques and group meetings which will help you. Even this not liking yoru job for various reasons could be one of those issues.

I am having memory lose and low memory so I can't remember some thing. So in exams my memory was emty.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

How to Cope With Erectile Dysfunction and Depression

How to Cope With Erectile Dysfunction and Depression

Depression is considered the common cold of all mental health issues and can strike in varying levels due to causes like pressing circumstances, problems in one's personal life and relationships, hormonal changes and other long term, chronic health conditions. Your intimate relationships are also subject to dejection when physical ailments enter the picture. Erectile dysfunction is one such area that creates depression. This is basically a condition that men suffer from. Due to this condition, a man is not able to get and hold an erection long enough to enjoy the act of sex. This can be caused due to related physical problems as well as stress. It can also lead to depression and problems in one's relationship due to anger, frustration, hopelessness and sadness. Here are a few ways to deal with depression caused due to erectile dysfunction.

  1. Recognising the Symptoms: The very first thing to do is to come out of denial and recognise the symptoms that are caused by this kind of depression. Usually, any long term or chronic problem can lead a person to look at himself or herself as a hopeless case. This can cause symptoms like dejection, a negative attitude towards everything and sudden outbursts of anger and frustration which may crop up in other areas of the patient's life. Since this is an intimate problem that one cannot discuss with everyone, the problem of depression gets all the more challenging. In such cases, the best thing to do is to be aware of the symptoms.
  2. Getting help: Simply being aware of the symptoms is not enough that is merely the first step. One will need to go ahead and do something about the symptoms. Visiting a sexologist or a sex therapist is the next step. With the help of therapy and discussions, the patient and the doctor can actually reach the root cause of the issue and help in realigning the attitude and thinking of the patient to come out of stress that is creating the issue, or to deal with medical repercussions of the issue in a more stable manner.
  3. Psychotherapy: One of the foremost methods used by most therapists includes psychotherapy that can help in unravelling the cause and finding a way to cope with the problem in a way that is focussed on discussions.
  4. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: This form of therapy examines all aspects of the person's life and reality so as to find the cause of the problematic behaviour and reprogram the brain of patient with great deliberation.
  5. Antidepressants: While some medications can affect sexual functioning, there are antidepressants that do not have major sexual side effects. Please consult a Psychiatrist and discuss about this option too.

Tackling depression and erectile dysfunction is a matter of striking a fine balance with professional help.

Stage fear happens to everyone, even those accustomed to public speaking. One of the ways to overcome it is to rehearse whatever you are going to talk about. Try rehearsing in front of the mirror. You will become aware of your body language and expressions, and will learn how to improve on them. Frequent rehearsals before any event will help you. Other than that, free yourself from the burden of other people's opinions. Not everyone has the courage to get up on stage and speak, but anyone can sit in audience and mock the speaker. Be indifferent to other's criticism, and only focus on improving yourself. If anxiety is overwhelming and you find yourself feeling low even things are going well, consult a psychiatrist. Medication can be prescribed to help with that. Also try some deep breathing techniques, especially before going on stage. Other than all this, indulge in some enjoyable activity and exercise everyday. You can consult me further, if required.

Dear lybrate-user. The tests are usually prescribed according to symptoms. For heart health ecg is taken. Lung function test is taken for lung health assessment. Liver function test is taken to understand about the health of liver. Approach a physician. Take care.
