I am 29 yr old male divorced 2 months back cant sleep well and not able to focus on my work, even if work in half an hour get tired. Also having bp 140/90 want to regain my strength both mentally and physically

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I guess the divorce is taking a toll on you. It is indeed very painful, and if you went through some bitterness, as is wont in some breakups, it can leave a bad taste in the mouth too. But you must move on after you have dealt with the pain and the feelings associated with the divorce. If you failed to do this, then you may even jump into another relationship with a foolhardy rush and get into the proverbial? frying pan into the fire. Even if you get into the right relationship, the feelings and bitterness that you did not deal with will follow you, and will become baggage in the new situation and jeopardize the same. So it is prudent for you to sort out issues that led to the breakup and go with a clean slate into another. I hope you are also aware that once you have bp, you will have it for the rest of your life, if you do not quickly reduce stress and change your lifestyle. Even then you will be in a relative state of high or normal bp! so, not only dealing with feelings, you must also do regular exercise, watch your diet, sleep well, meditate, learn stress management, and live a sensible life. Reduce your salt intake or switch to a low sodium salt called? induppu, in the south. The exhaustion indicates that there is a lot of unexpressed anger. You are too young to carry the load of this anger and your life and work can be compromised quite heavily. Before it all gets too serious, go speak to a counselor and do the things I have recommended too. If you cooperate, much of your old state could be restored.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Don't let your talent be taken away for the crush of a girl who doesn't bother about u. You might be destined for great heights and many might start having the crush for u soon. Shrug her off ur mind and get back to studies, education is your long time future, not this silly girl

I am suffering from depression. What should I do? What kind of medicine I have to take.
Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Laughing without any appropriate reason for it is never normal. But instead of speculating things in general, it is advisable that you consult a psychiatrist nearby with your family member so as to have an objective evaluation of your complaints. You may contact me online for any further queries or assiatance.

A girl in my class. She's been showing me signs of love by eye contacts and flirting. There was a problem between me and his friends but now everything is fine but we don't talk.

Infatuation is a feeling being carried away by a unreasoned passion three types of infatuation are usually seen 1. Being carried away by blind desire or without any insight 2. Evaluation may be well sound although craving or love remains unaffected 3. Exhibiting bad judgement and misevaluation for reasons such as ignorance or recklessness. Its really admirable that you have realized the feelings about that girl are bothering you in academics and social aspects. Please introspect that is this the thing that you actually want in your life now or it can wait for later. Seek guidance of a relationship counselor who can help you more efficiently.

Epilepsy: Knowledge for General Public

Diploma in Psychological Medicine, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Ludhiana

Epilepsy is a chronic disorder of the brain that affects people worldwide. It is characterized by recurrent seizures, which are brief episodes of involuntary movement that may involve a part of the body (partial) or the entire body (generalized), and are sometimes accompanied by loss of consciousness and control of bowel or bladder function.

Seizure episodes are a result of excessive electrical discharges in a group of brain cells. Different parts of the brain can be the site of such discharges. Seizures can vary from the briefest lapses of attention or muscle jerks to severe and prolonged convulsions. Seizures can also vary in frequency, from less than 1 per year to several per day.

One seizure does not signify epilepsy (up to 10% of people worldwide have one seizure during their lifetime). Epilepsy is defined as having 2 or more unprovoked seizures.

Fear, misunderstanding, discrimination and social stigma have surrounded epilepsy for centuries. This stigma continues in many countries today and can impact on the quality of life for people with the disorder and their families.

Signs and symptoms

Characteristics of seizures vary and depend on where in the brain the disturbance first starts, and how far it spreads. Temporary symptoms occur, such as loss of awareness or consciousness, and disturbances of movement, sensation (including vision, hearing and taste), mood, or other cognitive functions.

People with seizures tend to have more physical problems (such as fractures and bruising from injuries related to seizures), as well as higher rates of psychological conditions, including anxiety and depression. Similarly, the risk of premature death in people with epilepsy is up to 3 times higher than the general population, with the highest rates found in low- and middle-income countries and rural versus urban areas.

A great proportion of the causes of death related to epilepsy in low- and middle-income countries are potentially preventable, such as falls, drowning, burns and prolonged seizures.

Causes

Epilepsy is not contagious. The most common type of epilepsy, which affects 6 out of 10 people with the disorder, is called idiopathic epilepsy and has no identifiable cause.

Epilepsy with a known cause is called secondary epilepsy, or symptomatic epilepsy. The causes of secondary (or symptomatic) epilepsy could be:

  • brain damage from prenatal or perinatal injuries (e.g. a loss of oxygen or trauma during birth, low birth weight),
  • congenital abnormalities or genetic conditions with associated brain malformations,
  • a severe head injury,
  • a stroke that restricts the amount of oxygen to the brain,
  • an infection of the brain such as meningitis, encephalitis, neurocysticercosis,
  • certain genetic syndromes,
  • a brain tumor.

Treatment

Epilepsy can be treated easily and affordable medication. Recent studies in both low- and middle-income countries have shown that up to 70% of children and adults with epilepsy can be successfully treated (i.e. their seizures completely controlled) with anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). Furthermore, after 2 to 5 years of successful treatment and being seizure-free, drugs can be withdrawn in about 70% of children and 60% of adults without subsequent relapse.

Prevention

Idiopathic epilepsy is not preventable. However, preventive measures can be applied to the known causes of secondary epilepsy.

  • Preventing head injury is the most effective way to prevent post-traumatic epilepsy.
  • Adequate perinatal care can reduce new cases of epilepsy caused by birth injury.
  • The use of drugs and other methods to lower the body temperature of a feverish child can reduce the chance of febrile seizures.
  • Central nervous system infections are common causes of epilepsy in tropical areas, where many low- and middle-income countries are concentrated.
  • Elimination of parasites in these environments and education on how to avoid infections can be effective ways to reduce epilepsy worldwide, for example those cases due to neurocysticercosis.

I am 19 years old male I hate everyone who is close to me: friends, relatives and even my parents and sometimes impulse arises to hurt them badly, physically, mentally I don't understand what to do. So I remain very much tense these days.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your hate is probably related to some deep rooted anger that you are carrying from your childhood. It is probably being provoked further by a spurt in the production of the male hormone testosterone, which generally has a two-year duration. After that it will subside and stabilize. Discuss with your parents whether they are aware of anything that might have provoked this anger from your childhood. Then either by yourself or along with your parents do meet with a counselor and discuss the same. The counselor will educate you about emotions and help you develop skills to express your anger in appropriate ways. You need anger management classes but you also need to know of its origins. Exercise is a very good way to expend the energy of anger, so that it is under some control. But it still needs to be expressed. With regard to expression, it is better if you just spoke about it and gave it vent. No physical action of violence is acceptable and definitely you should not treat your parents to any kind of aggression. Even if your anger is justified, violence is not the way. Finally, if you are a spiritual person, it is possible to hand over your anger to God to deal with it for you: it works really well.

This can be due to stress and not controlling the mind. Please read this nice thought about to prevent it: when your stress goes flying out the window stress is so all-pervading in this material world that everyone is tortured by it. Stress takes many forms. We are stressed by health problems, financial problems, interpersonal problems and many more. The solution for all varieties of stress is to understand that its underlying cause is bodily consciousness, the false identification of the self with the body. As soon as one realizes that he is not his body and that his real happiness is based on harmonizing his consciousness with the supreme consciousness, and he then learns the art of doing this, his stress goes flying out the window to be replaced with profoundly sweet transcendental bliss. -

Yes, you will be angry if you have to ask him for sex and he turns you down. It is worse if he says that either you are boring or sex is boring - that is indeed very hard to take. You must both go for marriage counseling and then may be meet with a sexologist too. In the meantime you could do somethings to stimulate him sexually, if you are willing, that it. First of all I am implying anything about you when I propose these suggestions. I hope that is clear. Right, here goes: Make yourself smell clean and dress up attractively. It is very important to be sexually attractive. Clothes and cleanliness does wonders to a relationship. Then feed him well with foods he likes, The most important sexual organ is the brain: if the brain is stimulated only then does a man get excited. And sex does not start only in the bed: it is much more activated before, during and after. Talk to him in seductive ways, touch him in seductive ways, and tease him so that his sexual appetite is aroused. In bed make every sound and mannerisms to allure him sexually. Touch and tease his erogenous zones. As he gets aroused withdraw a bit just to get him to crave more contact. Put everything you can into it and you will see a change. Explore many different to do the act and if it is freely and happily done, you will make it very exciting.
