Weak or strong are relative terms. Find out your strength and work on them. Play sudoko or do logical reasoning and puzzles for brain nourishment. Eat healthy, stay fit, exercise and yoga. Stop seeking approval from others, those who laughed at you defined themselves not you.

Dear lybrate user, thank you for writing to us. I can understand your concern about medication's effectiveness for curing your anxiety. Petril (clonazepam) is used to treat anxiety disorders. It is proven effective drug for anxiety. Sleep disturbance is one of the symptoms of anxiety disorder. There are other primary anti anxiety medications like ssri, snri and tca. There is a strong scientific research evidence for these medicines for anxiety treatment. Pertil should preferably not to be continued for more than 6-8 weeks. Discuss this with your treating psychiatrist. Regards.

Sizodon ls is not a antidepressant medication, it s an antipsychotic. Your daughter must be suffering from psychosis, if the psychiatrist has prescribed this. If for past 1 year there is no recovery, you need to get a 2nd opinion. Since sizodon make the person drowsy, whether it is chronic schizophrenia, or something else.

Side effects after a particular time for lamotriagene are very rare. But one can not give guarantee that relapse will never occur as mental illness are often recurrent and stress can precipitate second episode.

Yes, these things happen. At least 1%-3% of indian population has cross dressers/ transvestites/transsexuals. Our society is not open to such variations in gender and it's possible that you might be finding it difficult to be accepted as you are. You are also talking of an inner conflict which is very depressing for you. I would suggest that you see a psychiatrist / homeopath/ayurvedic doctor for treating depression and associated symptoms. Finding your own community and interacting with them will get you the much needed acceptance and belonging to a group. Expressing your feminine side in front of others who don't accept you might not be a safe choice yet but you could give in to your needs in private and personal space. Counselling helps immensely to vent out and take your frustration out of the system. You can also learn in conserving, to cope with your sexuality, enjoy it and resolve the personal conflict that you are going through.

Having twins is a tough job for the mother in any circumstances. While they are a double blessing they can be a twice the workload. You must immediately find support in the form of a nanny or from family members like your mom or your MIL. This will relieve you considerably and your mood will be of a better order. You need breaks for yourself and more importantly, you need to get some of your needs met in various ways. Your husband must support your role as a mother-of-two in one shot and therefore will have greater needs than a mother with only one kid. You must speak to him and make him understand that you need his love and care too to manage your role with the twins. Also, if you find someone to talk about your feelings that will make a big difference to your composure. Please remember that you cannot be a supermom and fulfill all the demands without support.

Dear , you should understand the difference between mental disorder and mental disease. Mental disease needs psychiatric treatment and mental disease needs psychological therapies. You are having stress and anxiety and they are classified under simple mental disorders. Therefore you will need psychological therapies. Online counseling, psychotherapy and life style changes should help you. From the given information, I am unable to get the full details. Post a detailed private question to me. I will help you manage your anxiety disorder. Take care.

Hi, this is regarding my retired dad who in his late 60's started doubting my working mom. After fights raised up he is normal now but he is not agreeing that his doubt was wrong. I am worried that may be again he may raise up with his doubting. Do I need to take him to a psychologist which he would never agree or is there any other medicine to let go off his imaginations? please help.

I think that his not being occupied is probably bothering him. He may also feel insecure that he is not working whereas his wife is. And anyway a little suspicion is good because of their age: mom should feel elevated that he still has possessive feelings for her! no, there is no need to take him to anybody after he has become normal. I doubt it will rise up again but you need to do something for him. Keep him occupied but not busy all through the day. When mom comes back from work have her give him a lot of attention and love: even a little fussing will do no harm. Give him the importance in all matters of life in the home and around the family. Mom in particular must show him a lot of regard, and play down the fact that he is not earning and she is. Let him still feel that he is the decision maker and is in charge: essentially pander to his ego but do not overdo it. As long as he feels important he will be okay.

Hi. I am 22 year old boy. I am in a relationship since last 5 years, its a distant relationship, but I oftenly use to meet her. I love her a lot. She means a lot to me and I want to spend whole of my life with her only. It is not a lustful relationship. My love for her kept flourishing with time like a flower does. I had a truly bonding with her, now also I am having but this is what I want to discuss about, since last two years, I had been suffering from anxiety and due to that, I also suffered with somewhat depression. But now I am not having depression. And if I talk about anxiety, then I do not know whether is it there or not but I do feel like brain fog now, my head feels like something is missing out from my middle part of head, it feels somewhat light inside my head. When I was extremely suffering with anxiety and dep. I used to wath porn and masturbate, with time it got increased, on average I used to masturbate 5 times a day, sometimes 6 or 7.I was very moral person and I think it was never good to do that with such a noble relation I am having, I believe that it was a cheating to her, my her. But still I did that coz it made me somewhat relaxed. Now what a problem is that I am not feeling emotionally with her like before. Those emotions which always made me smile, cry, excited, now I am not having them. And it hurts me and I feel so sad about that. I can not live my life without her. Yes I do can survive, but such a life without her is meaningless to me. I just want those emotions back in my life, I want to live her emotionally and physically and by all means. Please guide me.

Hello lybrate-user - I don't know why you feel that there is something you lost and you have no feeling for her like in past. You are as you were believe it and please be positive always in your life because positivity is the thing which gives you everything you want from life. Think that you love her more than past and you do care for her emotions. Keep calm and relax yourself and try to do meditation and during meditation think as what I say that you love her very much and care for her very much every thing is fine between you and her. These thoughts will help you get closer to her and one more thing that your habit of masturbation is only help you to keep relax try to reduce it for future. Don't think that it is bad its just a time when you feel its requirement but now you are free from your anxiety and depression so keep yourself out from this habit also. Stay positive.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Take care.

Hello , take Bacopa monn. 1X , 2 tabs , twice daily to make your concentration better. Do the below exercises to strengthen your eye muscles:- Warm your eyes. Rub your palms together to create heat, and then place them against your eyes for five seconds. Repeat this three times. Roll your eyes. Start by looking up and then slowly circle 10 times clockwise and 10 times counterclockwise. Focus. Hold a pen at arm's length, focus your eyes on it, and slowly bring the pen closer until it's about 6 inches away from your nose. Then slowly move it back, keeping your eyes focused on the pen, 10 times in all. Massage your temples. Using your thumb knuckles, massage your temples in small circles, 20 times in one direction and 20 in the other. Repeat the same actions above the mid-point of the eyebrows at the forehead, then below the eyes on both sides of the bridge of the nose. Take a mini-nap. Put your head back, close your eyes, and relax for 3 minutes. Insufficient sleep may weaken your vision, so shoot for 8 hours of sound sleep a night. Rest your eyes 10 minutes for every 50 minutes spent reading or in front of the computer. If your eyes feel overly tired, lie down and place cooling cucumber slices over your eyelids.

Dear lybrate-user. You are already 180 cms. You will grow almost upto an age of around 22 years. That means you will continue to grow for another 4 years or so. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Exercise under the supervision of a trained body builder will help you in building muscles. Take care.

Mental health: What's normal, what's not

Understanding what's considered normal mental health can be tricky. See how feelings, thoughts and behaviors determine mental health and how to recognize if you or a loved one needs help.

What's the difference between mental health and mental illness? Sometimes the answer is clear, but often the distinction between mental health and mental illness isn't so obvious. For example, if you're afraid of giving a speech in public, does it mean you have a mental health condition or a run-of-the-mill case of nerves? Or, when does shyness become a case of social phobia?

Here's help understanding how mental health conditions are identified.

Why is it so tough to tell what's normal?

It's often difficult to distinguish normal mental health from mental illness because there's no easy test to show if something's wrong. Also, primary mental health conditions can be mimicked by physical disorders. Mental health conditions are judged not to be due to a physical disorder and are diagnosed and treated based on signs and symptoms, as well as on how much the condition affects your daily life. Signs and symptoms can affect your:

Behavior. Obsessive hand-washing or drinking too much alcohol might be signs of a mental health condition.
Feelings. Sometimes a mental health condition is characterized by a deep or ongoing sadness, euphoria or anger.
Thinking. Delusions ? fixed beliefs that are not changeable in light of conflicting evidence ? or thoughts of suicide might be symptoms of a mental health condition.
What is the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM)?

The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is a guide published by the American Psychiatric Association that explains the signs and symptoms of several hundred mental health conditions.

Mental health providers use the DSM to diagnose everything from anorexia to voyeurism and, if necessary, determine appropriate treatment. Health insurance companies also use the DSM to determine coverage and benefits and to reimburse mental health providers.
How do mental health providers diagnose mental health conditions?

To determine if you have a mental health condition, a mental health provider will work with you and your loved ones to assess:

Your symptoms. Your mental health provider will ask about your symptoms, when they began and how they've affected your life. How you perceive your thoughts and behaviors and how much your signs and symptoms affect your daily activities can help determine what's normal for you. For instance, you might realize that you aren't coping well or that you don't want to do the things you used to enjoy. You might feel sad, hopeless or discouraged. If your sadness has a specific cause, such as divorce, your feelings could be a normal, temporary reaction. However, if you have symptoms that are severe or don't go away, you could have depression. You might also need to have a physical exam to rule out any underlying health conditions.
Others' perceptions. Your perceptions alone might not give you an accurate picture of your behavior, thoughts or ability to function. Other people in your life can help you understand whether your behavior is normal or healthy. For example, if you have bipolar disorder, you might think your mood swings are just part of the normal ups and downs of life. Your thoughts and actions, however, might appear abnormal to others or cause problems at work, in relationships or in other areas of your life.
When is an evaluation or treatment needed?

Each mental health condition has its own set of signs and symptoms. In general, however, professional help may be warranted if you or a loved one experiences:

Marked change in personality, eating or sleeping patterns
Inability to cope with problems or daily activities
Strange or grandiose ideas
Excessive anxiety
Prolonged depression or apathy
Thinking or talking about suicide
Substance abuse
Extreme mood swings or excessive anger, hostility or violent behavior
Many people who have mental health conditions consider their signs and symptoms a normal part of life or avoid treatment out of shame or fear. If you're concerned about your mental health or a loved one's mental health, don't hesitate to seek advice.

Consult your family doctor, make an appointment with a counselor or psychologist, or encourage your loved one to seek help. With appropriate support, you can identify mental health conditions and explore treatment options, such as medications or counseling.

Regarding online consultation there are certain points which all should know and follow.
1) The description of the diseases should be complete in all respects, including any tests done and any medicines already taking. Just saying I have diabetes since 10 years and taking Metformin cannot help a discerning doctor a scientific advice.
2) Your place and name and mail id and phone number should be in the question. It is necessary at times to know where you stay to give a good advice. (For example if there the climate is warm or cold and many other factors)
3) It is necessary to keep in regular touch for some diseases like diabetes and hypertension. So make it a point to be in touch by asking private questions. And repeat the essential point of the previous question to give a continuing answer. All these are said with intention to give a scientifically correct answer and talk as if in a regular consultation about which I am very keen to.
4) For personalised attention and follow up ask privately and it is better to make online payment if you are asked to by the doctor. It involves his time and dedication to give you expert advice after studying your problem. Ask personally in case of doubts about any medical matter. Www.Lybrate.Com/drsajeev

If you are willing to accept me as your regular health care giver / doctor I can give you regular, prompt,
well studied and scientific answers for all your medical problems, which you ask me privately in this site. Sorry to say I will ask for a small payment for my efforts and intelligently studied answers. Regards. Www.Lybrate.Com/drsajeev
Ask privately. It is essential and useful to have a doctor answer your doubts online as it time spent in going to a clinic. Majority of diseases can be treated by online by consultation with an experienced doctor and does not need physical examination. You can use this site and ask me privately

Actually this is a problem of majority of the youth in your age who are in darkness regarding their future. This doesnot mean that everything iss over, it is the start of a new journey and most of us face such problems in the start of their carrier and the difference is that some come out early from this ssituation and many like you finds it difficult to come out. But the basic principle is to keep on trying and always think about one thing whenever you face a failure that god has planned something better for you and better luck next time. Once you are out of this situation or if I say, the moment you have a placement in a job, all your worries will be gone. Means in nuthell that by experiencing such moments in your life you always learn something and thiss lays a foundation stone for your bright future. So keep on trying until you succeed and never loose heart because there is no space for disheartened or laggard people in thiss harsh world.--------------self-confident people are admired by others and inspire confidence in others. They face their fears head-on and tend to be risk takers. They know that no matter what obstacles come their way, they have the ability to get past them. Self-confident people tend to see their lives in a positive light even when things aren't going so well, and they are typically satisfied with and respect themselves.-------------- if you don't believe in yourself, how do you expect anybody else to---- homoeopathic medicine-------------------- aconite nap 1m (dr reckeweg) drink 5 drops today night itself and forget this medicine now for 15 days p.

He is going through depression & take so much medicines from 5year what he have to do.
In major depression medicines are necessary to take. But it is also useful to undergo psychotherapy sessions like cognitive behaviour therapy, clinical hypnotherapy or mindfulness. As when we have constant acidity we need to take the medicines to get it under control but strict diet is necessary to avoid future acidity problems. Similarly our mental diet is our thoughts. Because every thought creates emotion as a result of certain brain chemicals which we call neurotransmitters get released. Medicines take care of getting these chemicals under control. But if change our thoughts just like changing diet less of disturbed emotions and hence less chemicals get released. These therapies teach us the helpful way of thinking process. They deal with the core issues. Give us new way to look at ourself and the people around us. Mindfulness helps to break our habit of sticking to our past. Start him with these therapies and you will certainly see the results.
