I am 19 year old male. I have these continues headache after waking up and that lasts for around 4-5 hours. It started 2 weeks ago. It also makes me angry irritating. Sometime it become so high that I end up harming myself. Also sometime a week I become so depressed like hopeless. I am in my college and this attitude is seriously affecting my grades. I do not like going to classes means like from last 9-10 months I barely attend 30% of my classes. And in that time I just waste my time by doing nothing. I do not feel any emotion actually, my mood swings from bad to normal. I do not feel happiness, I laugh but from inside I do not know how it feels. And that also make me breath heavy.

Relax dear lybrate-user. It may be caused by a range of conditions like migraine, brain tumor, defects in the eye etc. But, whatsoever it is, the treatment options are vast and the chances of recovery is very high. Your mood swings may be due to your belief that it can not be cured. Consult and follow a neurologist at the earliest. You can certainly lead a normal life soon.

How to get relief from depression. He is thinking a lot. Can not control his thinking.

How to get relief from depression. He is thinking a lot. Can not control his thinking.
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.

This is life. Many incidents give you a learning that never trust anyone other than you. And some incidents give you clarity about you relations and your appearance. Every incident can give you a learning about life so live life happily and accept the learnings from nature and god. Be possitive and feel relaxed because you have a future also in front of you. Make your own learnings from things get happen.

Stress management is all about taking charge: of your lifestyle, thoughts, emotions, and the way you deal with problems. No matter how stressful your life seems, there are steps you can take to relieve the pressure and regain control. First of all. Think about 1. What caused your stress (make a guess if you’re unsure) 2. How you felt, both physically and emotionally 3. How you acted in response 4. What you did to make yourself feel better Here you have not mentioned anything in detail. So initially you may try some relaxation techniques Relax. You deserve it, it's good for you, and it takes less time than you think. Here comes some relaxation techniques. Try them 1. Meditation: A few minutes of practice per day can help ease. “Research suggests that daily meditation may alter the brain’s neural pathways, making you more resilient to stress,”  It's simple. Sit up straight with both feet on the floor. Close your eyes. Focus your attention on reciting -- out loud or silently -- a positive mantra such as “I feel at peace” or “I love myself.” Place one hand on your belly to sync the mantra with your breaths. Let any distracting thoughts float by like clouds. 2. Breathe Deeply Take a 5-minute break and focus on your breathing. Sit up straight, eyes closed, with a hand on your belly. Slowly inhale through your nose, feeling the breath start in your abdomen and work its way to the top of your head. Reverse the process as you exhale through your mouth. 3. Reach Out Your social network is one of your best tools for handling stress. Talk to others -- preferably face to face, or at least on the phone. Share what's going on. You can get a fresh perspective while keeping your connection strong. There are many more techniques. Try this first and observe whether there is a change.

Sugar levels are too high to be controlled with oral hypoglycaemics only. She should use insulin syringe with small 26 gauge needle or fountain pen injections which cause very minimal pain. Once her levels are normal a trial for oral medication can be given. If she is overweight, her diet needs to be planned strictly otherwise merely increasing insulin or other medicines is never going to bring the things to normal.

Now a days I am very depressed and in tension because of my studies. What should I do for studying with a free mind.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Now a days I am very depressed and in tension because of my studies. What should I do for studying with a free mind.
Dear lybrate user... You are allowing the stress to overpower your ability to study. In this context I would suggest you to divide your study material in such a way that you keep only 2 hours a day for the first week. Gradually increase it to 3 hours a day the next week and go on increasing it every week, till you feel that its the optimal time to study a day. What mistake we usually make is that when we start we start with a high expectation with ourselves and thus we try to study 8 to 10 hours a day from the beginning. But actually what happens is that we study for 8 to 10 hours on 1st day and may be the 2nd day, but then we start loosing concentration and we read less than 8 on 3rd. Once we lag behind we start to ponder as to how we are going to finish on time and then we loose hopes. So as to avoid this I would suggest you to start slow and then gradually increase the time of study so as to let yourself adapt to the study time.Do not look at the syllabus and ponder as to how much is left, rather just divide what you have to study in a week and go start it without thinking as to how you will compete with others. Always during the study time you should keep rest other distractions off like online chats etc and in between the study time keep some fixed time for getting fresh air outside or listening music, whatever interests you. Have a healthy diet and never have it in a hurry. Always try not to ponder over things but rather to start with it as soon as possible. If you have any other query feel free to enquire. All the best to you.

Compulsive Sexual Behaviour - How to Manage It?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Pune
Compulsive Sexual Behaviour - How to Manage It?

One of the emerging psychiatric disorder that has significant medical and psychiatric consequences is compulsive sexual behaviour or hypersexuality, is an obsession with sexual thoughts in which people cannot manage their sexual behaviour. It may involve a commonly enjoyable sexual experience as self-stimulation which becomes an obsession. The person suffering from the condition may also get involved in sexual behaviours that are outside the bounds of commonly accepted conduct like paying for sex or having extramarital affairs.

Untreated compulsive sexual behaviour damages one’s self-esteem, health, job, relationships and career. However, with treatment and self-help, one can manage compulsive sexual behaviour and learn to manage one’s urge. Males are more likely to be unfaithful than females because they have stronger sexual impulses and weaker self-control. Compulsive sexual behaviour symptoms vary in type and severity. During intense sexual impulses, one feels as if they're beyond control. This is the first and the most common symptom as the patient uses compulsive sexual behaviour as an escape route for problems like loneliness, depression, anxiety and stress. One has trouble establishing and maintaining emotional closeness, even if one is married or in a committed relationship.

The treatment for compulsive sexual behaviour involves psychotherapy and medications. A primary goal of treatment is to help one manage urges and reduce excessive behaviours while maintaining healthy sexual activities. If one has compulsive sexual behaviour, one may need treatment for mental health condition. People with compulsive sexual behaviour often have alcohol or drug abuse problems or a mood disorder such as depression.

Counselling sessions can help one learn how to manage one’s compulsive sexual behaviour. Intensive treatment programs for compulsive sexual behaviours focus on identification of core triggers and beliefs about sexual addiction. It assists in development of healthier choices and coping skills to minimize urges and deal with the preoccupation of sexual addiction. Psychodynamic psychotherapy can prove to be very useful as it focuses on increasing one’s awareness of unconscious thoughts and behaviours, and developing new insights into their motivations. Resolving conflicts using this therapy is also recommended. The other kind of treatment program is cognitive behavioural therapy. This therapy helps one to identify unhealthy, negative beliefs and behaviours and replace them with healthy, positive ones. Family therapy and couples therapy may restore trust, minimize shame and guilt thus establishing a healthy sexual relationship between partners.

Medications include anti-depressants like selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, mood stabilizers and anti-androgens have also been used to treat compulsive sexual behaviour. Anti-androgens are prescribed as it reduces the biological effects of sex hormones in men thus reducing sexual urges. Luteinizing hormone is also prescribed as it reduces obsessive sexual thoughts by reducing the production of testosterone. Anti-seizure medications, naltrexone, and medications which decrease male hormones have been found to decrease the compulsive urges and impulses associated with sexual addictions for some sufferers. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.
