My sister 36 year old never go out anywhere she doesn' t have any confident herself she doesn' t have any interest in life she had face rejection in love life, she doesn' t want to go to doctor. She says she is ok. What to do please advice.

Her withdrawing is not at all a good sign. You can tell her that, if she is okay, she should be able to come out too. She is trying to brush you off. Now there are several options to consider doing: bring home a lot of people as friends, include the relatives also. If you bring her friends home, it will be ideal. She will find it difficult to ignore them or not to be hospital to them. If she was or is working, invite those colleagues too. As she gets comfortable with meeting people, she will gradually get out of her lack of confidence in relating to people. Organize parties, meetings, spiritual talks, get-togethers, functions, and prayer meetings at home, regularly and frequently, to literally bombard her with a social life, almost domesticated. This will have a telling effect over time. You have got to be patient, and give her some room. I don? T know the details of her love-life to comment on it but she has to move on and meet people to find another one to love? She was the loving kind once upon a time! In the meantime you could get a pet that you know she will like and let her only interact with it. Caring for the pet alone will be a full-time task, if she buys into it, fully.

Living with Schizophrenia

BDS, Certification in hypnotherapy, Certification in N.L.P, Certification in Gene and behavior, Psychology at Work
Psychologist, Gurgaon
Living with Schizophrenia

Chronic health disorders like Schizophrenia affect not only the patient, but also the life of their care givers. Though Schizophrenia can be treated to improve the patient's quality of life, it cannot be cured. Hence, it falls on the care giver's shoulders to watch out for symptoms of this disease and manage the person and their disorder. What should one do in such a case?

  1. Educate yourself: The first step towards looking after a person with Schizophrenia is to know the symptoms of the disease. With treatment, these may become better or worse so if you notice any change in the symptoms, bring it to your doctors notice at once.
  2. Reduce stress: Your goal as a schizophrenic person's caregiver should be to give them a calm environment and boost their confidence. Stress has a negative effect on all people and in schizophrenics this effect is much worse. Hence reduce stress and create an effective support system and structured environment for your loved one.
  3. Do not ask the patient to change 'his reality': When a person is suffering from schizophrenia, you should not force them to change their behaviour and reality, in order to adjust in the society at large. You should rather support the patient to accept his reality, to be at peace, since there is a very strong genetic component involved in its aetiology. Also, it is important that, both the patient and the family in particular should opt for regular counselling sessions.
  4. Regular exercise: Schizophrenics need not be cooped up in the house all day. Encourage the patient to go outside and exercise regularly. Exercise reduces stress and produces endorphins that make a person feel energized and happy. This should be complemented by a healthy diet. Minimize the amount of carbs and sugar intake and increase the amounts of omega 3 fatty acids in the patient's diet.
  5. Join a support group: Joining a support group is a very good idea for both the patient and the caregiver. For the patient, this provides a form of social interaction and for the caregiver is a platform to meet people with similar first hand experiences
  6. Encourage treatment: Convincing a Schizophrenic person to seek treatment can be quite challenging. Suggest treating symptoms of the disorder such as insomnia problem and lack of energy rather than the disease itself to make the patient feel more comfortable.  Give the patient options to choose from to make them feel more in control of the situation.
  7. Monitor medication: Once the treatment has started, ensure that the patient sticks to the prescription. Maintain a regular schedule by using weekly pill boxes and alarms. Also keep an eye on the possible side effects of these medicines. Ensure that your doctor has a complete list of medicines that the patient takes so that there is no chance of medicines interacting negatively with each other.
  8. Prepare for crisis situations: It is always a good idea to have an emergency plan in place. Keep emergency contact details of all the doctors and therapists at hand along with the address and phone number of the closest hospital. Share your situation with friends and family so that in case of an emergency, they can be relied upon to take care of your children and other dependants.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized psychiatrist and ask a free question.

I have 1 brother he has been completed MBBS Course during the course he has mentally disturbed now he has changed his attitude completely which is horrible he is lazy.now Could you please tell me the way how to back him as a normal person?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Something has disturbed him and it seems serious. There is no point in getting angry with him until this is investigated. Take him immediately to a counselor and if advised by that person even to meet a doctor. They will diagnose him and see if there is any condition that is of a pathological nature (which I suspect) and will prescribe treatments both in counseling and medication. He must cooperate with both therapies and that is where the family comes in: you must support him and make him adhere to the demands of the therapies. If he does not cooperate then you need to push him because some conditions make them non-cooperative and much of their motivation may need to come from others. Help him get through and that will benefit all of you. Otherwise this may develop into a chronic condition and he could become completely dysfunctional for life!

Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

Dear Lybrate user, At your age, Memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Hi I have been suffering from OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER and severe anxiety. I have to perform several rituals to get rid of those anxieties. I have been in psychiatric treatment for about a year. But the symptoms decreases as long as I keep taking medications. As I stop taking medicines the symptoms start again. please give me some suggestions. Thanks.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. In Many cases the medicine has to be taken life long, prepare your mind for it.

I am twenty two year boy. I am suffering from panic disorder since long and I can not find way to come out. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
When you say since long, I presume it must be from late teens. That is when most disturbances reveal themselves. It may indicate that there may be some contributors from childhood. So it is better for you to visit a counselor with your parents and they can throw some light into your developmental years to help reach a diagnosis. The other thing is that you should now stop trying to work this out on your own because it will cause you quite a lot of discomfort and disturbance, and you will be wasting valuable time in the process. What you need to do is visit a counselor immediately and work out the emotional baggage that is bothering you to cause this anxiety, especially fear. Fear is the key for resolving the panic, successfully. These attacks can become more frequent and more forceful. There could be a lot of guilt that needs to be worked out. Panic attacks are curable but you need to comply, and with the complete cooperation that the treatment requires. Forewarned you should be forearmed. If the counselor thinks that you need medication, so be it. In the meantime get your body fit: it plays a very important role in order to harbor a fit mind. So exercise regularly, go for Yoga and meditation to train the brain, sleep well and eat healthily.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. I suppose you are married for more than 5 years. You know your wife better. You can always talk to her to find out why she is behaving in this manner. Be patient. Get the reasons and please let me know. As you are loving, she is bound to talk to you. Alternatively you can book an online consultation session with me so that I can talk to you and your wife regarding the issue and provide remedial measures. Take care.

Hi, My wife is undergoing insecurity and emotional distress with lot of possessiveness towards me. Difficult to convince her and handle day to day activities. Kindly suggest me come out of this problem. Thanks

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If you are not contributing to her insecurity, then she may have her own issues that need to be looked at. If there is a huge discrepancy between the two of you in various ways and capacities there also she will feel insecure. So the thing to do is to find out what the insecurity is and then go about dealing with it. It is better if she is taken to a counselor and that person can be objective and neutral to help both of you see where the insecurity lies and can help both of you sort it out. If you attempt to help her on your own, she can never accept any definition because you cannot be the cause and the solver of the problem. She will see prejudice in it. If it is purely her problem her family may be able to help identify the issues that may have contributed to this from her childhood. It is fear based and there may be unresolved fear from her childhood. After you come to identify the problem you must play a very supportive role to help her in all reasonable ways to build the security and behave in a manner that is helpful to her. Your best bet is the assistance of a counselor.
