Dear lybrate user, I understand that your past keeps bothering you on and off. It appears to me that, may be you are feeling guilty/angry or ashamed about your behaviour or mistakes that you made in the past. We all make mistakes in life. What we do after realising our mistakes matters a lot. If you think you have hurt someone, talk to them and ask them to forgive you. Learn from past experience and do not let it happen again. But most importantly, if you genuinely feel sorry for what has happened in the past, then" forgive yourself" you are a human being and are likely to make mistakes. Take care that you don't repeat it again. Your past is over. Your future depends on what you do in the present, hence concentrate on the present. Have a goal and have a plan to achieve your goal. All the best.

I take 4-5 drinks of whisky twice in a month. Does this quantity of alcohol affect our health.

Dear lybrate-user. Alcohol is poison. You must understand, liver digests the poison in order to safeguard your body organs. In that process, liver gets damaged. Even a single drop of alcohol can damage liver. Quit alcohol. Take care.

My wife (Age - 36) is very aggressive and starts shouting for even trivial and non-issues. This has started impacting our kids who are very young and even neighbours. She has mood swings and is very negative for no reasons. She is not ready to go to doctor and on discussion with counsellers they have recommended she needs treatment.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Well, treatment is what she needs, and soon too. She has what looks like a serious problem that can develop into severe complications. Most people who are unwell deny that, and would not want to be seen anywhere near a psychiatrist. But this is part of the disease and also is a very conventional form of thinking, unfortunately. Talk to her nicely, then firmly, and then you could be a little forceful but very cautiously and subtly. If she does not oblige, you and the kids must visit a psychiatrist and explain this situation. The doctor may prescribe some medication that can be administered in her coffee or meals, to make her more amenable as a person, and perhaps for treatment too. This will take time and tons of patience but it will be worth all the effort. She needs an early intervention

People have different comfort levels in talking to people from the opposite gender. While extroverts like being the centre of attention and interacting with others, introverts may be shy in nature and are not always comfortable with social interaction. The good news is that you can overcome your phobia with the help of psychotherapy and counselling. Counselling is a completely confidential process and will help address your fears.

Hi, you are not having any mental issue. It is the situation at home which seems to have overwhelmed and thus you are feeling helplessness. You have been put alot of responsiblities over your shoulders too soon. And to take care of 12 members is not easy. You have said that your father is suffering due to back pain and he has been undergoing treatment but there is no relief. Your father's problem seems to be psycho somatic manifestation, which means, the pain is not due to physiological reasons but due to psychological reasons which here appears to be due to financial instability. He too must have been under the burden of being the single bread winner in the family which must have stressed him out so much that it has appeared in the form of lower back pain. It would be appropriate for you to talk to your family about how you are feeling and suffering. This will help to some extent. Also work with the family to understand how other members too can contribute towards running the family. This way others will also become responsible and you will also feel supported. If you will ignore and keep suffering then it will take a toll over your general mental and physical well being which will again make it difficult to function properly. This will later develop into a vicious cycle from which coming out will become difficult. Hope this was helpful. You can consult me further if required.

You are blaming your mental stress to be the cause. Stress is very normal to life and you are not coping with it well you have not developed good adjustment skills. Alcohol will not relieve the stress in any way, it is only a temporary reprieve. After the effects of alcohol, the stress will return with a vengeance. Anyway, now that you say you really do not want to drink, that is a very good start. You need to identify why you need to drink (apart from the stress factor) and go back to your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. You're already displaying the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need because of some fabricated reason. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination, these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however, take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

Quit Tobacco, Welcome life
Tobacco in any form is harmful for our teeth, gums, heart, or in short for our whole body. One should try to quit tobacco by reducing the quantity and frequency of tobacco consumption. Keep yourself busy, avoid meeting people with habit of tobacco. Drink plenty of water. Avoid soft drinks. And start feeling good with slowly leaving tobacco. Few medicines and chewing gums also help in this if you want to stop habit at one go.

Failure is a stepping stone to success. All famous people have become great because of their failures: not one but many failures have made them what they are today. You have to learn from failure to make it your success. So in fact failure is your teacher. if you don't learn then it is a real loss for you. If you have lots of problems to solve, then learn to prioritize them and handle them one at a time. You will become victorious if you think victory. You must read a book, called ,The Secret, to understand what I mean.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don; t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

Catatonic Depression - Causes And Symptoms

Psychiatrist, Ahmedabad
Catatonic Depression - Causes And Symptoms

Catatonic depression is a kind of depression which is characterized by prolonged periods of speechlessness and motionlessness. It is described as a state of mind that is caused by neurogenic and motor inabilities caused due to dysfunction of various neurotransmitters like glutamate and dopamine. People who suffer from a severe case of this condition, even have difficulty in performing simple regular tasks. For example, the act of eating breakfast may take a span of hours.

Some of the common symptoms of this condition are:

- Feelings of sadness
- A change in appetite causing gain or loss of weight
- Difficulty in concentrating and thinking
- Feelings of restlessness, worthlessness, and guilt
- Fatigue
- Irritability
- A loss of interest in any activity
- Trouble sleeping
- Attempts at suicide
- Cynicism and negativism
- Agitation
- Unusual and abnormal movements
- An inability to move and difficulty in speaking
- A refusal to eat or drink due to extreme anxiety

The major causes of catatonic depression are:

1. Abnormal neurotransmitter production - Irregularities in the production of neurotransmitters are believed to be one of the major causative factors of this type of depression. These neurotransmitters present in the brain help cells to communicate with each other. Serotonin and norepinephrine are the neurotransmitters which are mostly associated with this type of depression.

2. Dopamine irregularities - Another reason for this condition is believed to be the irregularities in dopamine, glutamate, and gamma-aminobutyric acid neurotransmitter systems. Underlying neurological, physical, psychiatric or psychological conditions are accompanying issues.

Administering antidepressants or using electroconvulsive therapy are some of the known ways of treatment which have proved effective for getting relief from catatonic depression. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

How Having Siblings Can Keep You Positive and Healthy?

CST Psychiatry, DNB (PSYCHIATRY), MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
How Having Siblings Can Keep You Positive and Healthy?

In most Indian homes, a family is not complete with just one child. Until about a couple of decades ago, a family with a single child was very rare. The most common response would be 'with whom the child will play'. Between the siblings, there is always so much love. Starting from getting attention from the parent to education at all stages of life, this is one relationship which just grows and grows. While it definitely is a feel-good factor, scientifically too, it has been proven to have multiple benefits.

Read on to know some benefits of having siblings and how it can help you stay healthy and positive.

  1. A constant companion: With a sibling around, there is no need to look for a play or study companion. There is always one available right in the same home. This provides for a happy, healthy equation with a lot of give and take that just extends through life.
  2. Continuous learning environment: With a sibling around, the learning never stops. There is a constant teacher/mentor-student relationship with the elder one having an upper hand and trying to teach the younger one all sorts of things from using a chalk to spoon to math to magic.
  3. Sharing begins at home: Whether it is your toys or colours, stationary or chocolates, siblings share a lot of stuff and so from a very young age, there is a behaviour that encourages sharing of all sorts of things. Studies have shown that children with siblings show a lot more sympathy and are more open to sharing things as compared to single children.
  4. Builds selflessness: The next time you see two siblings, notice how the elder one is always so protective of the younger one. The elder one is willing to give up their chocolate just so the younger one smiles. Similarly, the younger one also would give up a toy so that the elder one is happy. This selflessness is ingrained in children with siblings, which extends into their other relationships too later in life.
  5. Tougher individuals: Problem solving is something which gets built in early in life when children have siblings. This comes in handy later in life too, which makes them tougher individuals. They are also better skilled at negotiating, good at setting and achieving goals, managing relationships (both professional and personal), and are so more successful.

The relationship with a sibling just continues through life. The above are some pointers as to how having a sibling makes for a happy, healthier, and positive life. Anyone with a sibling would definitely vouch for these!!

Hi I am unable to remembered things in daily life I am so forgotten person. My all friends laugh at me please help me with that. Please help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Dear , When you are in an elated mood, angry, anxious, fighting, stressed, naturally your blood pressure and pulse rates are elevated. They come back to normal when you become calm. That is the body mechanism. Why worry? Change yourself and your attitude so as to accommodate everyone and stop quarrel and fighting. Take care.
