Hi Lybrate user you can manage your anger by proper take care of your self. Try some relaxation technique like breathing exercise. Identify your hobby and do some of your favourite activities, like singing, listening music, talk to friend etc. Time to time give yourself a treat you will feel much better and try to enjoy your life. When you feel your anger escalating try to do some physical activities. Think before you speak and when you feel yourself calm express your views. Always remind yourself that anger won't fix anything but create many problems. But if your anger seems out of control you can opt counselling sessions. Thanks.

She is suffering from mental problem and she is taking quel sr50 and other one. She was consulted to two physiatrist but she didn't get well even after taking medicine. She remain well for some period bt she change without any reason. She roam around here and there n sometimes says something .I assume it's just because that she couldn't control her mind .she think too much .I guess this might be the reason of mental problem. Is there a meditation center for such patient where she can control her mind and get well.

Dear Jigmet, I think we need to review the diagnosis and medicines. Quetiapine 50 mg is a low dose of medication. Also, we do not have information regarding the other medicine. Also, the information provided here seems to suggest a definite problem but to wxactly pin point the details, we need a detailed interview. Meditation will certainly be a useful adjunct to medicines, but the two are not interchangeable and both need to be done properly. I suggest a review of the medicines and diagnosis for this reason. Take care!

You have to give a detailed history like what do you do for a living what is your education level, financial status, work atmosphere. Home atmosphere your dietary habits, whether you smoke and drink alcohol, are you a non vegetarian how many cups of coffee or tea you drink daily your sleep pattern your exercise pattern what tests have been done till now and their results You will require further testing All these drugs are addicting and cause withdrawal symptoms if stopped abruptly please start counselling and minimal medicines send a feedback with your name and working contact numberer and I will contact you and then you can take a consult through Lybrate Remember You need to treat the root cause and not the symptom.

How to increase concentration power so that I do not get distracted and retain what I studied.

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 lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Signs and Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder

Ph.D - Child Psychology -, M.Phil. Educational Psychology, MSc. Child Psychology , B.Sc
Psychologist, Mumbai
Signs and Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is defined as a mood disorder that affects one's interaction and relationships with others. It generally develops during adolescence and persists into adulthood. It has been seen that those with a traumatic history of neglect or emotional, physical or sexual abuse are more prone to developing it. Though it affects people varyingly, these are some symptoms that help diagnose BPD.

1. Emotional instability - 
Intense feelings of rage, sorrow, anger, guilt and emptiness or loneliness are experienced by some sufferers of BPD. Extreme mood swings, lasting for a short span of time, are common in BPD. They may also have issues with their self-image where they cannot place themselves and don't know what they feel about themselves or who they are.

2. Disturbing thoughts - One may experience disturbed thinking and the range of severity is rather wide. One may question his or her existence and need constant reassurance to believe other, or hear voices that tell one to harm oneself or others. In some cases, hallucination and developing delusional beliefs become a common phenomenon that greatly upset the mental condition of the sufferer.

3. Impulsive behavior - Indulging in impulsive behavior is a common sign of BPD. Those suffering from BPD may develop suicidal tendencies and threaten to self-harm. Partaking in risky and irresponsible behavior such as gambling, drinking, drug abuse, having unprotected sex with strangers, going on unrestrained shopping sprees and shoplifting are not uncommon for those with BPD.

4. Intense but unstable relationships - Sufferers of BPD live in a fear of abandonment and feel that the people they love might leave them. They make all possible efforts to prevent being left alone. They may beg, cling and track their loved ones to avoid being left alone. The opposite may also occur and sufferers might feel that they are being smothered by others. This results in actively pushing away loved ones. A combination of these feelings leads sufferers to give out mixed signals which is confusing and often hurts them and their loved ones.

I can't forget my ex girlfriend at any cost. I always contemplate on her. Her memories gush through my mind. I have become ecstatic and almost mad without her. Pls help me.

Psychologist, Delhi
Hi Lybrate user, through your concern I can feel your unconditional love for that girl. But its the time now that you should move on ,just ask from your sole that the girl who is not caring about you now whether she will be right person for you. May be presently your feeling is dominating so can't feel anythingbut after few days you will realise it. You love someone its really wonder feeling you should proud of yourself that you are loving someone but at the same time you must understand that for any relation whether between married or unmarried couple when both agrees then only that relation can continue ,when by anyway any one forcibly tries to continue as other partner is not intrested then it will become burden. You cannot force any one to love or for care ,if anyhow in any type of pressure someone comes then it will be for short time only ,it can be for long time only if someone comes by realising your love and importance. Lets come to your problem that you are still missing that her and it is affecting you very badly you will be normal in few days as time is the best healer. In the meantime you can follow my few suggestions don't be in contact with that girl or any common friend ,involve yourself in some activity, you can join any hobby class, be social as much as you can ,main concept is make your routine such that you don't get time to think on this topic as it will only make your life hell and you will gain nothing, if there will be any chance then it can be only by giving some space in your relation. Take care.

I don't think it is a minor problem if she is affected this badly. 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.

I have to much smoking weed I can stop this. But I never control me please give me a help.

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
You can only control your urge to smoke weed by strong will power. Just think of how much it damaging your heath and how much money you wasted for it. As time passes eventually it will affect your digestive system so badly that it will be difficult for you to eat and digest. You can consult a psychiatrist as he/she may prescribe you some antidepressents which will suppress your urge to smoke and will counsell you to get over it.

Hi, I am married for last 4 years to a bpd male, he has undergone various treatments in the past. I want to know can a relationship with bpd male last forever?

DNB (Psychiatry), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
If you want a person to change, you must first realize how hard it is to change yourself. While treatments for bipolar disorder can help control the condition, it will be a constant battle throughout his life. If you decide to end a relationship because of a person’s bipolar disorder, try not to blame the person or their condition. It is no one’s fault that the person has the condition. Here are some reasons you may need to end the relationship: Your partner is dangerous. He or she becomes careless or reckless during mania. Your partner blames you for his or her problems. Your partner neglects treatments on purpose. Of course leaving without warning or discussion will be destabilizing for the other person, but if it is an issue of safety, you must protect yourself. Even if there is no risk of danger or violence, keep in mind that you cannot predict or take responsibility for the other person’s behaviors. They may respond with more intense anxiety, depression or anger than you expect or they might have been closer to wanting to break it off themselves than you realized, and may react with relief —or denial.

You should be honest to address your problems. That's the only way to be happy. Once you take charge of yourself then you will not fear or feel anxious about anything. It's all about accepting your self as you are ! No one is perfect. So stop comparing, stop worrying about past or future unnecessarily. you need to become wise and use your time very judiciously. So have your priorities. then plan your routine. there is nothing to worry as you are doing your best everyday because now you have learnt to take responsibility. All the best.

My parents have fixed my marriage but I get lot if anxiety at times because of this. Pls suggest.

MD - Psychiatry

Initially it won't be seen, but usually it is not advised to marry men with lesser education and pay, as ego clashes might crop after few months and some poorly adjusted males/ with personality issues might start harassing innocent wife due to this. I request you to to reconsider the decision, which is much better than repenting later. All the best

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

I feel really depressed when I loose something and my head started paining and water started coming from my eyes.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Sexologist, Mumbai
I feel really depressed when I loose something and my head started paining and water started coming from my eyes.
Dear lybrate user. Here I need clarification that whether you have been like this by personality or you have become quiet sensitive since some days or months. If I consider you to be like this since childhood than there is nothing to worry. Every person when looses something close and dear to him feels terrible, its just the expression or external behavior which is different. Every person on this earth is different and we all fall on a range of personality traits say for example from extroversion to introversion. This range for a person is predecided by the genes he is having and getting expressed, while exactly where a person will fall is decided by his upbringing that is the environmental factors. So everyone is born with a rubber band personality traits which has a range to which it can be stretched but the exact stretch is decided by his upbringing for the initial 18 years. There is nothing wrong to be sensitive or anxious when there is a significant event like a loss of something close to you. You rather accept it as these are normal human emotions. But if I consider that this is something new happening to you since a while say few months, than for sure you have some underlying depressive illness which needs to be evaluated. For further queries get in touch. Take care

You can come out of depression but you need to combine counseling with medication. In counseling, you will learn a lot of skills and techniques that will help you to meet the daily challenges in life for that of a depressed person. 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.

Bipolar Disorder - Is it a Common Depression Type?

Ph.D - Psychology, M.Phil - Psychology
Psychologist,
Bipolar Disorder - Is it a Common Depression Type?

Depression is a very common emotion you might have experienced at least once during your lifetime. Depression refers to a state of mind when you are feeling low due to persistent sadness and loss of interest. But if the depression is chronic and long lasting for you, then it indicates that you are suffering from clinical depression. Under clinical depression, it is preferable that you go through a proper treatment course by a certified therapist. The Most common types of depressions are:

  1. Major depression - Under this type of a depression you will be depressed for most days of the week and if this condition extends for a period greater than 2 weeks, then it is a case of major depression. The most common method to treat a major depression is to talk to a mental health specialist and take medications called antidepressants (only after a prescription by a certified doctor).
  2. Persistent depressive disorder - This is a more severe and long lasting type of depression which is identified if you are depressed over a period longer than 2 hours. The most common symptoms of this type of a disorder are - change in your appetite, too much or too little sleep, lack of energy or fatigue, low self-esteem, trouble concentrating or making decisions, feeling hopeless among others.
  3. Bipolar disorder - If you are experiencing extreme ups and downs of mood abruptly and without any apparent reason, then you might be suffering from this disorder. This disorder is commonly known as a maniac depression, because during an up phase you will be extremely happy, joyful outgoing and talkative but during the low phase you will be sad, tired and depressed.
  4. Seasonal affective disorder - This type of a depression might bother you only during the winter season. This happens whenever the days are shorter and your body is not able to get enough of sunlight. This mostly happens in the case of people who are very fond of sunlight, and they prefer the sunshine over dark periods of the night. This disorder is treated by SAD antidepressants and everyday light therapy of 15 to 20 minutes.
  5. Psychotic depression - Under this type of a depression, you will have a major depression along with some psychotic symptoms like - hallucinations, delusions, and paranoia. Hallucinations mean viewing things that are not there, in reality, delusions are false beliefs or misconceptions and paranoia is the constant fear that somebody is going to harm you.

If we want to experience peace and happiness, then we must learn how to trust. we all have reasons not to trust. What I mean by this is that we've all felt hurt, disappointed, rejected, scared, and abandoned. We have all suffered in some way (actually, we have all suffered in very similar ways), and we have all felt pain in relationships.You have to realize that trust is not about finding the perfect, trustworthy person; it's about signing up to work through hurt when it arises.Learning to be vulnerable after deep pain can feel impossible. But it doesn’t have to be. If you consciously choose to stay open and trusting, you will find that your world changes for the better in ways you may never have imagined. AS you can see it is all your mindset and not a disease to treat with medicines
