Excessive day time sleepiness can be due to commonly narcolepsy, you need to consult a psychiatrist. Basic blood tests, like thyroid, anemia, brain scan and eeg will be done to rule out organicity and then proper stimulant may be given to stop your hypersomnia. All the best.

If you don't smoke or drink, then you are not exercising much. You are also on the heavier side for your height. You must also check if your bp is also normal and see if you have sugar problems too. If you have panic and anxiety they are also good enough reasons to cause all your sexual problems. Nearly 99% of sexual problems are psychological in nature. You must be cooperative for any system of intervention to work for you, more so if the cause is psychological. I advise you to meet with a sexologist and learn how your anxiety is only increasing your problems. That person will also teach you certain measures to be taken and exercised to allow a free mind in sexual matters. The brain is the most important sexual organ: anything that disturbs it will directly impact your libido and performance. In fact, most of the physical excitement is dependent upon how the brain is stimulated and aroused. That is what is involved in porn and ads where female bodies are used in sexually titillating ways to arouse your attention and goad the sexual drive or buying impulse, respectively. You must explore what inhibitions or anxious thoughts prevent sexual arousal, and address those feelings to completely free yourself from their negative influences. The sexologist is your best bet. If you get over-excited you will have an early ejaculation too. You must restrain yourself from getting too excited and hold back the physical pleasure too to some extent to extend the ejaculate. When you finish your first round of intercourse, you could, after a delay of 20 minutes, go for another round which will be a lot more delayed. If necessary you can then do it the third time and that will surely be pretty delayed.

I am 23 years old male. I trying to stop smocking. How can I stop that bad habit. And is der any tablets for stop smoking in market. Of der pls tell me. If I stop suddenly what happens.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You need to meet with a doctor to get a prescription for medicines to aid in smoking cessation. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i. E. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.

You might be under stress. Since you are preparing for final year mbbs exams, please schedule your studies in such a way that you get enough breaks in between. Kindly try to relax your body and mind during these breaks. If possible, go for walk, jog, or some other games or exercise at least for half an hour per day. Have healthy food at regular time and have plenty of water and fruit juices. Learn deep breathing techniques, which will calm your mind. If still the music in your ears persists and if you feel that someone is whispering in your ears, then see a psychiatrist immediately. All the best.

Why different place of body having random pain like running from one place ot another everyday?
Hi there ~ what you describe seems to be a very classic case of radiating pain or vague bodily aches and pains that are related to a chronic medical condition. I hope you have yourself checked for diabetes, hypertension and other chronic medical condition. If you are a healthy individual with such pains somatization disorder may be a valuable diagnosis which could give you good relief from your symptoms in a quick and effective way. You will need to consult a neuropsychiatrist in that case to get your medications prescribed. Hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

hello I am 17 years old male person .i am suffering from some disorder which I do not know correctly ,it may be depression or psychosis .Now I am going to explain my symptoms points wise. This problem started exactly 2 years before. Firstly before 2 years I entered into 10th class with change of my section into a topper class slowly my happiness decreased day to day sadness increased ,day by day my focus and concentration decreased .once upon a time I used to get good marks and high ranks I entered into toppers class then slowly my marks also decreased ,i was not able to focus and concentrate on studies ,cannot getup early in the morning for studies but before I used to study at 1: 00 am in the morning but now those habits all ruined. Slowly day by day I became failure ,i cannot used to understand any lessons ,studies ,classes ,it is all about like my brain had stopped working I thought. I did not even get memories, thoughts,cannot imagine, focus,concentrate ,enjoy ,no laugh ,no cry, no sadness, no happiness, no feelings mainly ,no proper memory power. Like this I have time passed for 5 months. Then one day I tried and did hard work to getup early at 1 am in the morning again and woke up and studied crazily like just reading but not understanding and something like by hearting method for the next day exam .and later appeared for the exam but same situation ,cannot understand the questions ,but slowly slowly I attempted small questions by recalling answers then suddenly I got a feeling like sudden flow of blood into brain I thought my brain started working .yes ,it really started ,suddenly I became active my memory returned ,my thoughts started, my feelings started, my imagination started, my happiness also started then ,quickly I started attempting the questions in no time .exam finished results came I passed in a high rank rank i.e state 6th I thought that this change happened due to my studying at 1 am the before day. So again I started reading and studying books at 1 am everyday. But it gone reverse my brain got slowed day by day ,my 10 th public exam came near ,and a new problem started as like before my brain got stopped for some time during the school time and during small exams then immediately I informed my father about this and within no time we consulted a psychiatrist exactly one day the public exams ,so he given clonazep, and amisulpride tablets ,with that I managed some what during the exams and completed or written the exams with so much hard work, one thing I forgot to mention is that some songs are used to play continuously in my mind and also im itself singing that songs in my heart ,and also during the exam time ,if I not sing songs in my heart the writing of exams may become difficult because without that songs ,i am not getting thoughts and the answer to write. Finally I got 9.7 gpa points in my exams but the doctor changed my course and given another tablets named schidon plus hcl and amisulpride tablets .this is summer holidays time .i used to get more sleep and drowsiness, my brain day by day became weak and suddenly one day I forgot to swallow the the tablets then brain again stopped working slowly ,also next three days I did not take the tablets because I went out of station for a function in village. Then I returned home and also taken tablets but no change immediately I informed my psychiatrist that my brain stopped again. I thought that this total negative change is due to the tablets he given (schidon plus hcl means risperidone and trihexyphenidyl hcl and amisulpride). So I changed many doctors also consulted a psychologist but my brain did not started working upto now it is 2 years upto now .i had left the college 1 year due to this problem ,i forgot to mentioned one thing that in this last one year my brain worked but only one day exactly 20 hours the reason behind this is due to that I had taken schidon plus hcl and amisulpride for 40 days exactly then suddenly we changed doctor and suddenly tablets also changed ,i started new tablets (stalopam and amisulpride tablets) then immediately after taking tablets I got the same feeling as a sudden flow of blood into the brain and same situation brain again started working ,my feelings started, my thoughts started, my happiness started, my imagination and all started but after 20 hours it stopped working due to end of tablets reaction effect. So this is the long story and upto now I have taken 6 ect sessions. But no improvement at all .so what should I do now?

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Dependent Personality Disorder

Dependent personality disorder (dpd) is one of a cluster of disorders defined by symptoms of anxiety and fear. The specific, identifying symptoms include:

  • being emotionally dependent on others; feeling they can’t take care of themselves
  • investing a lot of time and effort in trying to please significant people
  • displaying clingy, passive and needy behavior
  • avoiding disagreements for fear of losing approval and support
  • experiencing separation anxiety and intense fear of abandonment
  • finding it hard to be alone
  • putting the needs of others before their own
  • tolerating mistreatment and abuse for fear of disapproval and abandonment
  • being crushed, and feeling helpless, when relationships end – and forming new relationships as soon as possible
  • being unable to make even the simplest decision without the input and reassurance of others
  • rarely taking the initiative
  • avoiding personal responsibility
  • avoiding responsible jobs and careers that require independent, autonomous functioning
  • being over-sensitivity to criticism
  • feeling negative and pessimistic; expecting to disappoint and fail
  • having low self esteem and lacking confidence, including a belief that they are unable to care for themselves.
  • The cause of disorder is still unclear, and probably includes both a genetic and environmental component. Some researchers have speculated that it could be linked to an authoritarian or overprotective parenting style – which acts as a trigger for a genetic predisposition.

Treatment is usually initially sought for some other problem or concern – such as feeling overwhelmed – so that they can’t cope with life. Also, sufferers will often have a mood disorder so they seek help for depression or anxiety at first.

The normal treatment for this particular disorder is counselling or psychotherapy. However, the emphasis is short term therapy so the person doesn’t form a dependency – and then look to the counsellor to take care of them. Prognosis with support is generally good.

Sizodon ls is not a antidepressant medication, it s an antipsychotic. Your daughter must be suffering from psychosis, if the psychiatrist has prescribed this. If for past 1 year there is no recovery, you need to get a 2nd opinion. Since sizodon make the person drowsy, whether it is chronic schizophrenia, or something else.
