Dear doctor my wife aged 55 years is suffering from psychiatric problem for more than 15 years. She was treated at jipmer initially for nearly 6 six months for her suicide thoughts and later after discharge she started speaking to herself to someone of her imaginary character person and shouts violently often till now. Whenever she started shouting I will give'sernace' medicine mixed in juice without her knowledge as advised by doctor earlier. Also she never cooperate with me to meet a doctor and in fact she thinks that doctors are useless. She is living till now in her own imaginary world shouting most of the time and never bothers the neighbours. She had three children through ceasarian and later undergone uterus operation. I request you to advise me what shall I do further as she refuse to meet a doctor. Thanks and regards.

Your wife is suffereing from schizophrenia, giving medicine like this in juice is not going to be of great help for the future, the main success in treatment of schizophrenia is only through medicines, there are various modalities of treatment like long acting injectable medicine that can be given once in 15 day to one month. Those might be a better option of treatment and getting her to treatment is very crucial as she need to understand that this is a life long treatment and if the medicines are not taken in time they might cause damage to the brain as well.

Panic and anxiety disorder can be treated effectively with a combination of the right medications along with relaxation and behaviour therapy. Medical causes of such panic episodes also have to be investigated in detail to form the most appropriate management plan. Consult a good psychiatrist in your city with details of your complaints.

I think I am suffering from some psycho problem. Actually since the time of school I had no frnds and those who I have. Lost them just coz I was studious and simple guy. From there only I suffered from high mental pressure. I felt so alone and keep writing stories on this topic only and always crying in my room for hours and suddenly starting talking myself. After 5 years I was out of that but in College I lost my love and was back into that past but one girl become my friend and we had physical relationship too to let myself get out of that depression. But after 1 year of physical relationship we had. I felt ignored when I read her chats with other people. I am unable to accept that she is only my best friend. I live alone in pg and also not in contact with neither of my brothers and sisters nor any College friend but only her. I am not getting myself what I want only life as I kept on hiding things from all and crying in my room after College time. I want to know why I am unable to take things normal as other people and why keep looking in my past and so emotionally weak. Here also I am unable to define my problem properly.

Hi its basically you want to be loved by your friends and family. Since you are living alone in pg, you feel ignored and on the same hand, you have less no. Of friends which makes you realise this time and again. However, being in relationship with any one is perfectly fine until you and the other person are sharing some kind of happiness. You are more or less insecured about losing your loved ones due to the incidents that happened in your life. This is the major reason that you constantly dwell in past. You should be determined to get healthy and fine like others ; with proper medication and conselling, you ll get yourself back. I need proper detailed history of your to work upon your case and give you best possible results.

I think you have an emotional eating disorder. You need to identify the emotion that is behind the excessive eating: are you sad, angry, afraid or happy that you tend to want to eat every time? When you have done that it is as simple as addressing the feeling that feeds into the over-eating and you will cease to have a problem. This can be done with a counselor, ideally. Many of us over-eat when emotionally distraught. I don't know if you are over-weight and for some people weight gain is an effect of the depression. Apart from that it is likely that your metabolism might have reduced considerably making you susceptible to gain weight even with small quantities of food. If you still want to eat (I mean healthy food of course), you can consume more, if you did some noteworthy exercise, after getting approval from your doctor. Exercise boosts your metabolic rate and help produce anti-depressant quite naturally. Foods also boost metabolism: egg whites, lean meat, water, chili peppers, coffee, green tea, milk, whole grains, and lentils. Cucumber is a zero calorie food and takes long to digest and much metabolism too. If you have it before each meal and any amount too, it will curb the amount of consumption - even tea and coffee has that effect. Even so, the addictive aspect of eating involves the obsession and compulsion i.e. your mind will be always thinking about food and then it will feed into a compulsion to consume something. So, if you occupy yourself, (not busy) then the mind will not think too much on food and therefore it will negate the compulsion.

Hello lybrate-user, Post partum blues are common. During that depressive phase, you feel everything has vanished. You also feel that your husband has changed. He has to change, because he is not only a lover or a husband, but also a father. Post partum blues are common in fathers also. Please consult a psychiatrist or ask your obstetrician to refer. It is a completely treatable disorder with antidepressant tablets and counselling for hormonal changes and responsibilities of mother.

I am suffering from addition of smoking and I want to give up this habit how can I do this.

D.P.M, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Hello. Its great decision to quit. Set a date when you will absolutely not smoke. Work towards that day by gradually decreasing the number of cigarettes per day. Buy only one cigarette at a time and walk ten minutes to a shop before you buy the next one. You can also use the nicotine chewing gums available in chemists. You can consult a psychiatrist for medications to reduce craving. Good luck!

Dear , quitting tobacco addiction is not child's play. De-addiction therapy is an option for you. But in my suggestion, the best option would be, quit it now (today) and sustain it with your will power. Motivation therapy and mind power building therapy should help you. I suggest you to go for counseling and further therapy procedures. Take care.

To be a safe and predictable person for those around you at work and at home, it is essential that you are able to maintain your composure when you feel like your 'buttons' are being pushed. This strength will help you to achieve your goals in business as well as your goals for your personal relationships. 1. Share negative emotions only in person or on the phone. E-mails, answering machine messages, and notes are too impersonal for the delicate nature of negative words. What feels like a bomb on paper may feel like a feather when delivered in person. 2. Pepper your responses with the phrase, "I understand". This phrase will support your goals when the tension is high and you need to find common ground to form compromises or agreements with the other party. 3. Take notice when you feel threatened by what someone is saying to you. Resist the temptation to defend yourself or to "shut down" the other person's communication. It will take this kind of discipline to become an open, trusting communicator. 4. Practice making requests of others when you are angry. It is often much more useful to make a request than to share your anger. For example, if the babysitter is driving you crazy by leaving dirty dishes in the sink, it is better to make a request of them than to let your anger leak out in other ways such as by becoming more distant. 5. Try repeating the exact words that someone is saying to you when they are in a lot of emotional pain or when you disagree with them completely. This mirroring technique can keep both the speaker and the listener 'cantered' in a difficult conversation, especially when the attitude of the person doing the mirroring is to gain understanding of a different point of view. 6. Take responsibility for your feelings to avoid blaming others. Notice when 'blame shifting' begins to leak into your speech. "I feel angry when you are twenty minutes late and you don't call me" is much better than, "You make me so mad by being late." 7. Learn to listen to the two sides of the conflict that you are in as if you were the mediator or the counsellor. If you can listen and respond in this way you will bring peace and solutions to the conflict more quickly. For example, in response to an employee's raise request, you might say, "On the one hand I understand that you really need the raise, and on the other hand I represent the company, whose funds are very scarce at this time. Is there a way that I can work on your compensation package that does not involve cash?" Here, the mediator's point of view can look for the creative compromise that takes into account the limits and the needs of both parties. 8. Take a playful attitude towards developing the skill of emotional self-control in high conflict situations. You could view maintaining self-control in a tense, angry conversation as an athletic feat. You could also view developing this skill as similar to working out at the gym with weights - the more that you use your self-control muscle the bigger it will grow and the easier it will be to remain calm when tension is great. 9. Wait a few days to cool down emotionally when a situation makes you feel wild with intense feelings, such as rage. As time passes, you will be able to be more objective about the issues and to sort out the truth about the situation more clearly. 10. Make a decision to speak with decorum whenever you are angry or frustrated. If you give yourself permission to blow up, people will not feel safe around you. They will feel that you are not predictable and will carry 'shields' when they are near you. The fear and walls of others will not support your goals for success in relationships or at work.

Is there any medicine or counselling that helps to stop drinking alcohol completely. If so please let me know.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, It is a crores of rupees question. Many researchers are still spending much time and energy to find such a medicine or counseling. Right now, we have effective drugs to counteract withdrawal symptoms. We have 2-3 types of tablets to counteract craving for alcohol. Of course, we have disulfiram (antabuse) for developing aversion towards alcohol. We also have motivational enhancement therapy, relapse prevention therapy, family therapy, individual therapy, etc. With these things, mostly in combination of all, anyone can stop drinking completely. Remember alcohol dependence is a chronic recurring disorder. Please remember the above advice is for those who became dependent on alcohol - not for anyone who drinks. They can stop drinking alcohol completely without much help from medicines.

Hello iam 22 year old girl and I have a thyroid and I didn't concentrate my studies and I become very lazy. And I tried a home remedy dhaniya ka pani but it didn't work please help me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You could feel tiredness and unusual fatigue die to thyroid problems. You need to go for treatment for the thyroid problem anyway. Dhaniya water will not affect this problem. In the meantime do some of these recommendations very faithfully: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

I have problem remembering stuff. It hasn't always been like this. Some days when I go out, when I get downstairs I don't remember whether I locked the door or not, I have to go upstairs again and check. Even when studying, sometimes, I have to read a paragraph over and over again (8 times) to be able to memorise it, but I haven't always be like this. What can I do?

Such problems are becoming increasingly common. A few of the causes are lack of proper sleep with the possibility of a sleep related disorder, vitamin deficiencies, age related changes etc. An evaluation for the above is advisable.

I am experiencing loss of concentration and memory. I can't recall things I study.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration.
