Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - Can You Manage It?

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - Can You Manage It?

Do you switch off the lights a certain number of times before going to bed? Do you clean your windows even after they have been cleaned more than once in the day? Do you check your locks again and again before stepping out? If yes, then chances are you that are suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). OCD is something which is difficult to overcome. However, the great thing is that it is not something that happens to be untreatable.

OCD is something which affects a range of people and to varying degrees. To some, it may have the effect of making their lives a little unusual, and to others it can go some way in greatly mitigating the pleasure they get out of living their lives. A person who suffers from OCD keeps on doubting his or her actions, especially when it comes to the possible repercussions of him or her not doing what he or she was supposed to do. This could include a person asking himself or herself whether he or she has put the gas off, or turned the tap off in the bath tub before to leaving the house.

Taking control of the obsession

  1. In order to reduce the adverse impact that OCD has on the life of a person, it is important to exercise regularly. This is because OCD is an issue which has a lot to do with the nervous system, along with the brain, and the benefits of exercise on the nervous system can have a meaningful impact.
  2. A lot of the problems a person experiences with respect to his or her health has to do with the amount of sleep he or she gets. It should really not come as a surprise in that case that it is not much different in the case of OCD. When a person does not get as much sleep as he or she normally should, it can cause issues by way of thoughts and ruminations in a mind that is not rested to an extent that is adequate.
  3. Many people seek to control their OCD by trying to avoid the fears they face. However, it should be noted that this is not a good way to go about with it due to the fact that avoidance is very likely to compound the level of fear. Instead, a person who suffers from OCD should make an effort to follow a ritual which involves making sure whatever he or she is afraid of is incorporated in it.

OCD is something which has the potential to scare a lot of people. However, adequate effort and treatment can make sure that it no longer should. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Ejaculation is important or not? From ejaculation can I get stress or not? And how many time I can ejaculate in 7 days?

Ejaculation is important or not?
From ejaculation can I get stress or not?
And how many time I can ejaculate in 7 days?
By ejaculation if you mean masturbation then it is a good and safe way to de-stress yourself. However make a point not to use it as the only way of getting relaxed. If you feel stressed out find alternative ways of dealing with stress. Masturbation 1-2 times a week is not at all unhealthy for you

Premature ejacukation may occur due to many reasons like anxiety, stress and worries, body weakness being the last reason. It's good that you are not addicted to any substances. However it's important for you to get assessed by a psychiatrist and sexual counsellor before you start any treatment.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - How To Know If Your Child Is Suffering?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - How To Know If Your Child Is Suffering?

It is sad to hear of a loved one suffering, but it is downright painful if that someone is your own child. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition which was not paid much attention to for many years. The fact remains, however, that ADHD is something that can adversely affect the life of your child and their relationships. One example is Olympian Michael Phelps, who had been diagnosed with this disorder. In order to know if a child does suffer from it, it is important to pay attention to a few signs.

Signs You Must Not Ignore

  1. To start off, if a child seems to be fidgety all the time, it is a good sign that there is a chance that he or she may have ADHD. While it is true that children often display feelings of excitement as well as a degree of restlessness most of the time, the ability of a child suffering from ADHD to sit still, quite literally, surpasses any normal standards for even a very restless child who does not have ADHD.
  2. As a matter of fact, most children who are diagnosed with the disorder are diagnosed by the time they are 7 or 8 years old. For many kids, this has something to do with the signs that are displayed once they join school, which are related to their behavioural habits. For example, children who have ADHD are likely to show their inability to await their turn in a group activity. As a result, they are likely to interrupt not only their peers, but also their teachers to say express their thoughts.
  3. For those who are not well versed with this issue that so many children face, the behaviour of a child with ADHD come across as being outright selfish. However, this is really not the case. In many cases, since children with ADHD find it difficult to follow plans and set out tasks, their inability to do so is often considered as lack of intelligence. Such judgements can lower the morale of the child and make him or her feel inadequate, insecure and left out.

Many children who have ADHD are not loud and usually do not stand out in a group. Rather, they are more likely to be the quiet ones who daydream. All this can have major effects on the academic record of the child, and it is fair to say that he or she is quite likely to under perform compared to the rest of the students in the class.

If you see any of these signs, do not be alarmed. However, do seek a doctor’s opinion to know for sure if your child has ADHD. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Sir one of my friend had got paralysis attack and his left hand fingers stopped working doctor said there was a clot in brain. Now he is fine. Can he drink alcohol.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
There is no justification to drink alcohol for any good reason. However if there are medications that he is taking that may interact with alcohol, so the treating doctor would be the best judge.

My son is artistic, aged 35, no speech, behaviour is like 5 years old, mentally retarded. He takes Trioptal 300 and lonazep in the morning and night. PRESCRIBED by Psychologist. I saw his BP is 92 and 132, can you recommend any pills for BP. Does it BP is due to above medicines. please advise. Thanks.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Diastolic BP of 92 seems to be on the higher side. It's important to know the reasons thereof. It might be due to blood vessel resistance caused by several reasons. He needs to be looked after by a physician.

Sperm counts may vary due to various reasons. You need to investigate yourself for reasons of lower sperm counts. Unless your counts are below a specific level it may not cause infertility.
