I am very short tempered sometimes I feel very depressed. My mood get change very soon is it common?
This is due to underlying tensions, frustrations that you have suppressed inside you. If you can take sessions with a psychologist you will be able to find the reasons and cure. You can begin by an online consultation with me from the comfort of your home/office and talk about your problem in a totally confidential manner. Online consultation will help you to assess for yourself if you at all need to go for face to face treatment or a video chat from your room/office is good enough. If you find an online consultation helpful, you may continue with it.

I am in a relationship with a guy from last 2.5 years. During this time we had a lot of problems some created by me some by him. From June to august, we had a break up and my mom got involved in between. Since September, we started talking again but then in between we still had problems. He wanted me to leave my modeling which I started in june. He gave me an option to chose him or modeling. It's like I love him and I can't be without him. I feel he doesn't trust me because he doesn't want me to talk to any random person or make friends. But he does everything to make me happy. I don't know what should I do. Moreover I want to continue my modeling but I am scared to tell him that because I am afraid to lose him. I be happy when he is around but then at the end of the day I feel low and cry myself to sleep. We are still in relationship but today again he fought. He thinks I do everything intentionally. I have tried harming myself too when there are issues between us. I just can't live without that person. I don't know why but he wants conditions in our relationship that I should not do this. He wants I should not commit mistakes. I am a human after all even if I do he should handle me being calm. Help me.

Hello! Thanks a lot for sharing your problem. This is a very sensitive issue you shared. I would like to ask you: 1) Is it worth carrying on a relationship that is based on limitations or conditions 2) Is it worth carrying on a relationship that gives pain or instigates pain Some decisions that we take in life are not always easy, we have to choose and the choice may hurt us for some time but it may give a permanent relief to the problem :) Hope you make the right decision about your life. Regards.

I am suffering from mood swings and it suddenly depresses me, when I am out I think if something goes wrong etc, negative thinking dominates sometimes. I am doing meditation fro last 2-3 months and better than before (which seemed uncontrollable) after meditation it's controllable, but I want to live a positive life and get rid of this situation. Please suggest something that might help. I took trika 0.5 for 10 days and stopped as I don't want to take meds.

You should never regulate your medication as these psychotropic drugs needs qualified people to handle. You must visit with a counselor too.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 calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Dear lybrate-user, You seem to be having many symptoms of a serious mental disorder. Of course it will be treatable if diagnosed properly. Please don't get married without treatment. It will add to your burden. With treatment you can find a job and you will not feel others are exploiting you. Please take your mother along to a psychiatrist to give further information to diagnose you. She may help you to co operate with treatment.

Hello Lybrate user I know it might be difficult to adjust to new work environment. Try having a routine like workout or gym or yoga for thrice a week then socialize by going for events which are Available online or join some hobby class. If you still feeling depressed its better to connect with a psychologist to help out with your problems. I hope this was helpful to you.

You are perhaps suffering from a condition called as phobia which basically means that you are uncomfortable visiting public places. There can also be other undisclosed issues which needs to be discussed. However in the mean time you can continue using the same medicine and feel better. For long run I would recommend you that you also perhaps see a psychologist as they will able to help you with strategies to deal when faced with such situations. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Respected Ma'am / Sir, I have been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and my psychiatrist has prescribed a XBaren 300 as a mood stabilizer. I read that XBaren is a medicine given to control seizures and I have never had a seizure. Why am I given this medication?

The medicine xbaren is also a mood stabiliser. So don't worry the doctor has prescribed correctly. Also ask him or a clinical psychologist for CBT (Cognitive Behaviour Therapy) for Borderline PD. All the best.
