I don't know how suddenly I feel like I am lost, lonely and feeling like crying! can't help it with, discussing with anyone is tough task because I think they might not understand, and this is my frequent problems so I don't want to irritate them, I get sudden mood swings and I remain silent most of the time. I get aggression too. But I can't help it out. I am not able to concentrate on my studies. Please suggest me something. Earlier I had bad relationship from which it effected me so much, I got mental torcher, blackmails for that I am very afraid. The boy still calls me, and as soon he calls? My heartbeat turns faster. Although I am out of it but I am unable to keep myself happy, set various limits for myself and scared for loving or trusting anyone.

Hi, I can understand your feelings. What ever symptoms you are facing is because of your bad experience. You are trying hard to overcome it. It is a very positive move of yours. Do not afraid of that guy and be firm in communication. It will take some time to be normal. Keep yourself busy. Eat healthy food and have proper rest. Do some physical exercise. It will release some good hormones so your mood will get elevated. You can change your phone number or just say him straight that you are not going to tolerate him anymore. Take help of some trusted person and share your feelings with him/her.

Dear , masturbation is natural and almost every person masturbates. Masturbation in moderation is healthy and is a stress buster. At your age you can masturbate thrice in a week or alternate days. No harm at all. Don't be apprehensive about its after effects. Just enjoy. Take care.

Doctors are really friendly unless s/he has been too busy and tired. I think what you will need ideally is a counselor and you should make an appointment and meet one soon. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: 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. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

It is natural to have poor self esteem when one is not earning. But remember, this is a temporary phase. It will go away. A lot of people have been through this phase at some point in their lives. You are currently in a testing time of your life. Dont evaluate your worth based on this situation. That will be a biased and negative view. You need to work on what options you have and be patient. You will soon get your job. If your distress continues, see an expert in person. Take care!

Dear lybrate user, I think you need to find out what is causing this anxiety. It is not about appearing for competitive exam, it is probably fear of failure or not living upto the expectations; that is causing this anxiety. Please understand your strengths and skills. Have faith in yourself. I think this anxiety is caused because you consider yourself weak to face any challenge in life. It appears that you are trying to take help either from the medicines or from your drinks. Both are not advisable. Both these habits have their own side effects which will harm your body and your future as well. Behaviour therapy will help you to get rid of your anxiety and drinking. Please consult a counsellor. Take care.

My brother suffering from schizophernia since last 20 yrs. We take medicine from Doctor in ranchi

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Schizophrenia is a debilitating disease, if neglected by the functional people around, and if the person is allowed to do whatever he feels like doing. Quickly get him for therapy (it will be a long-term exercise) and have him put on a tight time-schedule of activities and functions. If you support and are firm with him, much work and action can be gotten out of him. He will become dysfunctional and passive, day by day. If left alone, he will internalize his thoughts, which could only be highly distorted, and this could worsen his condition. He should be active enough to support the work of the psychotropic drugs, and develop some coping skills with the counseling. He is still young and I believe with a lot of scope to at least become a productive member of society. Further neglect of this state of affairs will make him a life-time burden to whoever is left to guardian him. If you are the older brother, you could possibly make him do things to support becoming functional. He needs a firm hand and some force to have him comply with the therapist? s expectations. He must be kept occupied and productive every day.

I am 23 years old I have bipolar effective disorder from 2009 and I am taking tablets now. If I got married it will not affect my child or not, what should I do?

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS

Bipolar affective disorder (bpad) tends to run in families. So if you get married & have children, there is a slight chance of your children also developing bpad at some point in their life. But its not 100% i. E. Its not always that they will have mental illness. Its just a chance factor. Plus if you take your medicines of bpad regularly, you will remain fine & can prove to be a very good husband & father. All the best!

No its not possible that at your age you are getting menopause. A simple low hb% in body can lead to scanty periods. You should get your hb% /thyroid profile/usg lower abdomen done to conclude the diagnosis of scanty menses. For dryness of vagina apply oilve oil on it.

Masturbation is a normal act performed to satisfy one's own sexual desires in absence of another sexual partner. It's very natural for a boy of your age to masturbate and there is nothing to be anxious about. Our testis produces sperms and this process takes few weeks. Whenever one is not masturbating, these sperms (as semen) will automatically get discharged which one feels as wet dreams at night. Hence discharging them regularly by masturbation is not bad. BUT doing it regularly though not bad can evoke anxiety in you as you r having. You better spend your time with anything productive work. And definately masturbate sometimes.

I am 29 years old male, I do exercise daily but I can't avoid stress what should I do?
If the workload is causing the stress, learn to manage your work well. Even when you overdo exercise, it can cause stress. You could talk to your supervisor and tell him about the stress and he may suggest some better ways of doing what you are doing. Stress is eventually all about the perception of stress. If you change the outlook, the result will be 350`different. If there is a possibility to delegate some work to someone else, please do so. To feel energized you must eat healthy food involving whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Drink green tea and a lot of buttermilk every day. You may eat an egg every day too: it is a multivitamin and multi-mineral, all built into one. You must exercise regularly, especially the aerobic kind. Get at least 8 hours of good sleep and the more you sleep before midnight the better. Learn some stress management and meditation. You must identify our feelings and make sure you express all of them, appropriately. Maintain good relations, especially at home. Deep breathing exercises help to calm a person, immediately. Do not indulge in drinking and smoking.

Hi lybrate-user, Try simple relaxation techniques Deep breathing. This means taking a long, slow breath in, and very slowly breathing out. If you do this a few times, and concentrate fully on breathing, you may find it quite relaxing. Some people find that moving from chest breathing to tummy (abdominal) breathing can be helpful. Sitting quietly, try putting one hand on your chest and the other on your abdomen. You should aim to breathe quietly by moving your abdomen with your chest moving very little. This encourages the diaphragm to work efficiently and may help you avoid over-breathing. Muscular tensing and stretching. Try twisting your neck around each way as far as it is comfortable, and then relax. Try fully tensing your shoulder and back muscles for several seconds, and then relax completely. Try practising these simple techniques when you are relaxed, and then use them routinely when you come across any stressful situation. Dr. Sarah Jarvis Why being stress aware matters Stress - help, I just can't cope! Panic attacks - nothing to panic about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Indigestion – should I worry? Read more blog posts Positive relaxation Set specific times aside to relax positively. Don't just let relaxation happen, or not happen, at the mercy of work, family, etc. Plan it, and look forward to it. Different people prefer different things. A long bath, a quiet stroll, sitting and just listening to a piece of music, etc. These times are not wasteful, and you should not feel guilty about not 'getting on with things' They can be times of reflection and putting life back in perspective. Some people find it useful to set time aside for a relaxation programme such as meditation or muscular exercises. You can also buy relaxation tapes to help you learn to relax. Related articles Prisoner Anxiety - A Self Help Guide Relaxation Exercises and Mindfulness Controlled Breathing (Pursed Lips Breathing) More related content Time out Try to allow several times a day to 'stop' and take some time out. For example, getting up 15-20 minutes earlier than you need to is a good start. You can use this time to think about and plan the coming day, and to prepare for the day's events unrushed. Take a regular and proper lunch break, preferably away from work. Don't work over lunch. If work is busy, if possible try to take 5 or 10 minutes away every few hours to relax. Once or twice a week, try to plan some time just to be alone and unobtainable. For example, a gentle stroll or a sit in the park often helps to break out of life's hustle and bustle. Related Wellbeing Outsmarting stress Giving and caring may improve your health Stress and blood pressure How I stay calm, by people with very stressful jobs See all Wellbeing Exercise Many people feel that regular exercise reduces their level of stress. (It also keeps you fit and helps to prevent heart disease.) Any exercise is good, but try to plan at least 30 minutes of exercise on at least five days a week. A brisk walk on most days is a good start if you are not used to exercise. In addition, if you have difficulty in sleeping this may improve if you exercise regularly. Smoking and alcohol Don't be fooled that smoking and drinking can help with stress. In the long run, they don't. Drinking alcohol to 'calm nerves' may lead to problem drinking. Hobbies Many people find that a hobby which has no deadlines, no pressures, and which can be picked up or left easily, takes the mind off stresses. For example: sports, knitting, music, model-making, puzzles, and reading for pleasure. Treatment Some people find they have times in their life when stress or anxiety becomes severe or difficult to cope with. See a doctor if stress or anxiety becomes worse. Further treatments such as anxiety management counselling or medication may be appropriate. Consult with me for treatment. All the best.

Good Morning ~ Performance anxiety or social anxiety disorder is way too common and the most common among the psychiatric group of anxiety disorders. Cure is effective when both medical and talk therapy or counseling approaches are used and it will help with overcoming this problem sooner than later.
