I don't know how to describe my problem. My problem is neatness. Every minute and every second it will be in mind. I keep wash my hands when ever I touch anything. And I have two kids I don't allow them to play outside because they will get dirty. And if I see them dirty I will get very anger I will loose my control. What is my problem and what to do. Please suggest me.

Psychologist,
I suggest that you see a psychiatrist for your wish for neatness at all times. It seems to be going towards an extreme and wouldn't serve you any purpose, instead render you quite dysfunctional. Stopping your kids from going out will prove counterproductive because children need to run, play, exercise in the open for good physical, mental and emotional development. Dirty clothes are part of growing up. Sometimes it's fun to be dirty and still enjoy with friends. They learn social skills through play. Cooperation, tolerance, team building, competitions, winning, losing, resilience etc. By keeping them in the house, they will feel bored and lose out a lot.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Seems to depressive disorder to me. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Is there any medication for quitting smoking. I really want to give up but am failing. Smoke 20-30 cigarettes per day along with rajnigandha pan masala. The cigarette is classic ultra milds. Have been smoking for the past 15 years.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who will follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I think one or two online counseling sessions and these therapies should help you.Take care.

Want to leave chewing tobacco. Any nicotine alternative medicine? Please advise.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
Yes, there are nicotine chewing gums and nicotine patches. Both will help but I am inclined to favor the gum because it is an oral habit and it will occupy the mouth just as though you were still chewing tobacco. When you want it will be easier to give up the gum.

He is drinking way too much for his age. There is no other way than to admit him to a rehabilitation center. He cannot be given that choice and he is not responsible at all. Your mom can easily approach his work center and speak to the HR department and get their support too: both financially and in terms of granting him at least 6 months leave to clean him up. Before that, she will need to approach the rehabilitation center about the entire process, fees, time period etc. and when they can come and pick him up. If she gives her consent, they will come one day when your father is sloshed and just pick him up and take him to the center, without any choice. If nothing is done, he is likely to end up in death, which incidentally seems to appear like his 'Rock​ Bottom'.

Dear , alprazolam is an effective medication for treating generalized anxiety and panic disorders. Taking away xanax, alprazolam or any other benzodiazepine suddenly, especially in the case of an addicted person, can lead to consequences like insomnia, nausea, vomiting, headache etc. The withdrawal process takes time and is to be made systematically. Tapering is an effective method. You should get help from de-addiction center or psychiatrist for further advice. Take care.

Hello, thanks for the query. Whatever you have described here qualifies for a diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder (gad). I am sure this diagnosis must be already been told to you by various doctors & counselors. The real issue here is despite taking pari-cr 25mg why you are not improving. To find that out & help you with your problems, I need to know a few things 1. Who prescribed you thyronorm 75? have you got your thyroid tests done recently? 2. Before pari-cr 25mg; what other medications have you received so far? 3. Are you taking pari-cr 25mg at bedtime or in morning & whether you are taking pari-cr & thyronorm only or some other medications too? revert back with this information so that I can help you. Good luck.

Best option is to see a psychologist at the earliest possible. Your son seems to have lots of bottled up emotions. Let him take sessions with a qualified and experienced psychologist and definitely he will open up and all his symptoms will eventually go.

Dear lybrate user, having a dream/goal is the first step towards success. Have a realistic goal. Then make a detailed systematic plan that will take you towards your goal. Take one small step at a time and set small targets, to start with. Pat your back once you achieve these small targets. Write down your dreams and your plan of action on a paper and stick at a place where you can see it daily. Find out the reasons for demotivation. Kindly remember that, there will be setbacks. Take these setbacks as challenges and try to find the best possible solutions. If you get bored, take a break, relax your body and mind. Then again start working towards your dream with double efforts. Please remember -" courage is the ability to continue, when you feel like quitting and choosing to smile when you feel like crying" have the courage, have faith in yourself, work harder and be consistent. Wish you good luck.

I am a thyroid patient & often I get angry, is this natural? what should I do to control my anger.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, 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.

Hello, It depends how much the mobility is affected and other aspects. I need you to get MRI Brain, BP/ Full Blood tests including Cardiac profile/ Please scan and send me. Only thing at this stage he needs to be supervised to avoid any damages that may occur and counsel him to comply and donot use force telling doctor has said. If he refuses he needs to be superised or use a walker/stick to walk to bear with rigiddity tremors and weakness and lack of initiation of his movement when he intends to. Please contact me with all these details. We can consider starting on medicines if not prescribed or alter if necessary the treatment protocol or ad on to existing protocol of treatment. Do not panic. But protect your brother, you are doing and take it bravely as we have to accept the age and disease as it is not in our hands, but we can try rectifying it and have a better life.
