The information you have given is very inadequate to make any diagnostic conclusion but it sounds serious enough to follow up with a visit to a psychiatrist. It is urgent and your cooperation is mandatory. You must also work with a counselor all through the treatment with your doctor. I recommend that you visit the doctor with your parents, equipped with your entire history from prenatal days and a history of the family from your grandparents, on both sides. This is the age when most pathologies manifest themselves for the last time looking for a resolution. If you sincerely work at this time, there is every possibility that your recovery will be complete and much sooner. If it is neglected, you can develop permanent negative traits into adulthood. So roll up your sleeves for some committed action and get well soon.

Unfortunately some psychiatric disorders are chronic (continuous or long-term) in nature. Just like some physical conditions like diabetes (sugar) or some kind of arthritis (pain due to inflammation of joints) which can't be permanently cured but can be controlled or managed from getting worse and reducing the symptoms like pain, fever restricted mobility in case of arthritis and dizziness, deterioration of functions of other organs like kidneys, heart, eyes etc. In cases of diabetes by means of modern medicines, physiotherapy and life-style modifications. Likewise, it seems to me that you have been taking drugs for stabilizing your mood swings and other psychotic symptoms which appear to be chronic. You have to accept that you have got to live with these undesirable conditions at first which may give you an immense relaxation. On the other hand, you can improve your quality of life by making some lifestyle modifications such as working within your physical and mental capacities, going for a brisk walk everyday, attending yoga classes, expanding your social network and thereby increasing your emotional support system and more importantly making regular, periodical visit to your psychiatrist etc, don't lose hope. Certainly you can make your life for the better if you have the strong will to do.

The problem in your case seems to be a combination of inferiority complex and lack of self confidence. People speak about everyone. The way we look at it is important. Try this very simple and effective exercise to improve your confidence and esteem stand in front of the mirror. Keep your shoulder straight, chest high, chin slightly lifted up. Say to yourself aloud - I am a smart and confident woman. I have many talents and people respect me for that. Say this out aloud ten times. This will help improve your confidence greatly also start engaging yourself in any sort of work that you love doing like, embroidery, stitching, knitting, cooking - anything that you love doing and are talented in. This will help keep you occupied and take you away from the negative thoughts the advice that I have given you is based on what you have told me. There are many more such remedies in psychotherapy. If you want to know more consult in person.

Why is that once a person starts taking alcohol or drugs, its is difficult to get rid of this habit?

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 Sonali. Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol and drugs ultimately affect and trigger the pleasure center of the brain. Whenever these substances are used, the pleasure center get activated. Then on habituation, the pleasure center asks for more and more of the substance, just because it gets pleasure. De addiction therapy can help the addict. Take care.

Whenever you face a camera you feel uneasy and you try to avoid it, and there is no other problem in any spheres of your life except facing camera. This indicates the possibility that you may be having Specific phobia for photography. Specific Phobia is a type of anxiety disorder. In specific phobia, a person has unreasonable or irrational fear related to exposure to specific objects or situations. As a result, the affected person tends to actively avoid direct contact with the objects or situations. The fear or anxiety may be triggered both by the presence and the anticipation of the specific object or situation. Although people with this type of phobias realize that their fear is irrational, even thinking about it can often cause extreme anxiety. Exposure to the object also causes various physical symptoms such as pounding heart, vomiting tendency, diarrhea, sweating, trembling or shaking, numbness or tingling sensation, shortness of breath, dizziness, choking sensation, chest pain or discomfort, stomach upset, chills or hot flashes, looking flushed etc. This phobia may be associated with some traumatic experience of childhood; maybe some unpleasant incident happened during your childhood while clicking photo when you were a child. Though the actual event forgotten, but its impact stayed back. It may also be a learned behavior: as a child you might have seen someone close reacting with fear while taking photo & you started responding the same way, which became intense as you grew up. At times the cause is not known. To reach the actual diagnosis, get yourself evaluated by a Psychiatrist, who will prescribe you medicines or advice you counseling sessions accordingly. Along with medicines, various behavior techniques & therapies are available to help you overcome this problem. Along with, put your effort to come out of this situation. You need to face your fear rather than avoiding it. Before facing the camera, go mentally prepared for it. Try to keep stay calm & relaxed. More you will face the camera, your confidence will grow more & you will become more determined to overcome the situation. After facing the camera, if you feel there is improvement in you, praise & encourage yourself. You are not alone in suffering from this type of problem. Many are suffering from this problem in different forms & many had also overcome it with proper therapy & self determination. So stay positive. Though facing camera make you uncomfortable, you are still managing to control your fears and carry on with daily activities. This is a good positive sign. There is solution to this problem & you can also come out of it.

I have taken speech therapy one year ago . I become well . But once again stammer . Now a days I do regular practice what ever touched during speech therapy and do yoga from a week but still stammer . And stammer more when I talk to father . Whether he is soft towards me . Sometimes I also fear from talk on phone and moving in market , I fear from people at market for talk . And I think I stammer. Sometimes I went in mental depression.

Hi, you definitely need to see a psychologist for help. Tell your parents frankly that you have been advised to consult a psychologist for curing the stammer. Am sure, they too will want it cured. Do not worry, with right treatment it can be cured fully. They teach ujjai pranayaam- a breathing exercise for stammer. No harm in doing, but must do alongwith watching on tv for correct procedure. In general, the program if watched and followed will do you tremendous good. God bless you!

Dear lybrate-user, if the pain is there even after decompression and laminectomy then it seems the compression has occured again. Some of the nerve is being compressed and it is paining but it can also be due to operative procedure. Do not join for work now, it is strictly not recommended.

My problem is getting weak early while walking. And reading books. How to improve my memory power.

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 , memory and mind power consists of understanding, storage and recollection of information you learn. Understanding depends on concentration. The more creative you are on doing tasks or reading, the more you understand. Storage and recollection depends on your understanding and how well you review what you have learned. Repetition and review of material learned and other tasks provides easy recollection. You can improve your concentration and total brain power with the help of green leafy vegetables, exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku etc. Hard work is the key to learning and recollection. Take care.

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you?re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

The problem is kinda complicated and I shall try my best to explain in as simple a manner as possible. So basically there is this girl I really love and we have been talking to each other since about 3 weeks. I know 3 weeks sounds like a less time but in this time frame we have shared quite a lot about each other. Even the things that 2 opposite sex friends would not normally share with each other like family past, sexual/masturbation tendencies, about our ex girlfriends/boyfriends etc. Like we both are open minded enough to discuss these things really normally. After like 2 weeks, I confessed to her that I love her and she just told me to wait due to her recent breakup and other trust issues with regards to relationships such as being commitment phobic as she claims to be sometimes. But at the same time she tells me not to loose contact with her at any point of time and maybe after sometime she might say yes. At times she also flirts with me calling me cute and all and she dosen't mind me flirting with her as well. She would not even mind getting drunk with me at my house even though she has not done with any other guy. Not even with her exes. Now comes my question. I tend to contemplate that all these chain of events that took place between us is a sign of the fact that she probably likes me as well. However its kind of making me mad as to why is she stalling this whole thing so much despite of such good bonding between us. Is she playing games with me? Does she has any plans to screw around with me as if i'm just a time pass? Would we ever fall into a committed relationship? I really do not know whats going on here. And on top of that I get confused hearing my friends say that I am not taking the right approach with her. They suggest me tactics like unusual questions and ego games in order to make her like me. But I never wanna do these things to get her. I just wanna be myself. The truthful honest self. So please give some advice here as to how to go about it and how to tackle the anxieties and depression that come forth when I am missing her when she is busy. Thank you so much for reading till here.

Hello, thank you for elaborating your case here. I would like to advice you to be yourself althrough the way. As you are since for two people to stay together for long, staying like oneself is indeed crucial. For the matter that though you feel she likes you but is not telling you 'yes' for your proposal, I would like to tell you that its perfectly normal at this juncture for her when she just had a rusty ride with her ex. Just give her some time to revive all that she had with her ex. She is now also in a tumultous phase of her life and shr has found you who has lend her a soothing shoulder. To caress her. My last words would be. Give your relationship some time. Concentrate on your studies. Let your relationship with her follow its usual course. Regards.

I am 21 years old. But my memory is very poor. I can't remember a simple thing some times. I am also facing aging problem. People who never meet me thought that I am 36 or 40 years old. Please help me.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Your advanced ageing may your genetic problem and 7 Ways to Remember Anything 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.

Listen to your parents, they have brought you up to this level, in this age love would make a person have all or none thinking, that life is impossible without the person, which is different from mature love, wherein parents, education, job, lifestyle all are taken into consideration. So kindly go for counselling to a psychiatrist or experienced clinical psychologist.
