I cant remember names and some time forgot what I want to talk or discuss. What does this mean and whom do I have to show myself to?

Dear Jayant Forgetting and difficulty to recall names, task at hand can be associated with inattention, being anxious, nervous & stressed out while trying to memorize/ recall. It may be due to cognitive disorders. What is your age? Have you suffered a big loss because of memory issues. You need to consult a psychiatrist/ psychologist to get to the root of your problem.

My brother is facing depression. Reasons are so many like quarrels among my parents, he doesn't have any job, business loss etc. He is very sensitive & emotional. Also he is an MDR TB patient. He is 32 years old & behaving not normally. Now a psychiatrist provided some medicines. Will he be perfectly fine with the medicines? As he is taking very hard medicines already. Or is there any therapy to use. Please help doctor.

It will help him if he is able to practice all that is taught daily on astha channel 5.00 to 7.30 am. Very very effective- esp anulom-vilom and bramri and udgit. You will get miraculous results for free and without adverse effects of allopathic medicines and will gain good physical and mental health, increase in your stamina, good concentration, improved memory, etc. It is excellent to drive depression, negative thinking out of your system. Not necessary, you have to be present in front of your tv at 5 am. Begin by switching on your tv just whatever time you get up and start practicing as being taught. Gradually when you regulate your sleeping time, you will be able to get up next morning at 5 and will be able to do complete workout. The time you spend here will actually be an investment that will remove tension, stress, etc. Leading to increased positivity. This will be possible only if he is better after medicines. These medicines can even be from patanjali chikitsalaya or allopathic, as you choose. But the above will be very helpful. Plus, he requires regular sessions with a psychologist to help him get over the hurts he has suffered in his past.

Hi, I am 24 years old, I have too much tension without any reason. What should I do? please help me.

Hi, I am 24 years old, I have too much tension without any reason. What should I do? please help me.
It is hardly likely that there is no reason for your tension. If you do not have a conscious reason, then the unconscious mind will have one for sure. If there are reasons buried in your unconscious mind, it is likely that the reasons may have been precipitated from childhood experiences, or a long time ago. The reason you have not been perturbed by it this far is because these may have been suppressed for years, and at an undue moment when stressful factors may have lowered your defenses, it is bound to come up and trouble you. You need to talk to a counselor and that person will help you identify these influences from childhood, and then you could work on them. Any which way, learn about your emotions and learn how to express them appropriately.

Dear, panic attacks and anxiety disorder can be managed with the help of psychotherapy, meditation, exercise and life style changes. Please post a private question to me with every detail. I will help you. Take care. You must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. Therefore no medicines are required. Mental disorder can be successfully treated with the help of awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Dear doctor, Many doctors said, if one's weight is reduced due to stress or anxiety, HDL cholesterol will reduce and LDL will increase. How does it happen?

Dear Lybrate user. This is a wrong concept. Cholesterol has nothing to do with stress or anxiety. Weight loss could happen due to stress and anxiety and as a general effect, whole cholesterol count could decrease. Take care.

Dear user, I can understand. The best treatment is to have psychiatric help. Counseling and motivation therapy. For all these you should consult a psychiatric facility. You may request a psychologist to come home and treat your husband. Online counseling may also work sometimes. Take care.

Ways To Improve Productivity In Mental Problems And Substance Abuse

Ways To Improve Productivity In Mental Problems And Substance Abuse

Mental health crisis and substance abuse - ways to improve productivity 


Behavioral illness—depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and other issues—is a dark place. Many—perhaps even most—of your friends and family members will not understand what you are going through. You must reach out anyway. Identify and rely on those within your immediate support network who do understand, who are committed to helping you through a long-term plan for coping and recovery. 
 

1. Decide to do absolutely everything in your power to to improve your behavioral health. Commit to change what you can and work around what you can’t. Flatly refuse to let this challenge define you—either as a passive victim, or worse, by taking pride and entitlement in it—and you will find open doors to vast improvements in your quality of life, even if you are never fully ‘cured.’

2. Be willing to recognize and acknowledge what is going on. Monitor yourself. Know the warning signs or triggers for your condition, and get help early when you recognize them rather than ignoring them or trying to manage them yourself.

3. Get professional help. Find a credible, credentialed professional trained in psychiatric methods.


4. Never stop contributing to the world. If you are wrestling with mental health or substance abuse issues, your employment prospects may seem bleak. If your circumstances force you out of your chosen career path, resist the temptation to give up. If you are able, find a career pivot that will allow you to work around your challenges. Even if you are unable to ‘work,’ find ways to contribute meaningfully, even if they feel small at the moment. With every diligent act of productivity, you exercise control over your life and claim our common birthright of human dignity.

5. Let your story be heard. We exist in a culture that largely disavows mental illness. By appropriately sharing your story in positive, proactive ways, you not only take a crucial step toward management or recovery—you provide an essential ingredient in rewriting our cultural narrative of these issues—from the inside.


6. Educate yourself. Invest some time into reading up on mental illness. 

7. To the degree possible, make an effort to empathize.
 Strive to truly understand the experience of those who must confront the reality of mental illness on a daily basis. Tactfully reach out to affected friends and family for first-hand accounts to deepen your understanding of ‘a day in the life.’

8. Commit to being non-judgmental.

 Decide that you will let the facts and personal stories about mental illness come together for you, and that you will work to form an accurate and compassionate view of how they work—and what it really takes for a person to take back their mental health.

9. Reach outside of yourself with a willingness to help. 

Find at least one way to meaningfully help someone suffering from depression, anxiety, or other issues along their path toward coping with or recovering. Tactfully reach out to friends or family who experience mental disorder and listen to their stories. Find ways, big or small, to lend a hand, brighten their day, and lighten the load they carry. Show them you see them.

10. We must work to change public perception of mental health and mental health issues. 

In addition to the proper self-care and empathy I suggest above, each of us can be an agent for change, simply by breaking our own link in the vicious cycle.

Dear lybrate user, about your habit of checking wallet often, it appears like ocd - means obsessive compulsive disorder. A person with ocd keeps repeating his actions very often, unnecessarily. And many times it is beyond the person's control. About your anxiety to talk to new people or about costly gifts, more exploration anout your thoughts and feelings is required. For your both problems, you need to have some behavioral therapy. Hence, please seek help from a counsellor.

Dear Ankit, You are right Ankit. Nicotine in cigarettes also act on the nervous system like those tablets you are taking. Together, they interact in different ways on your brain. Why don't you try and stop smoking so that the drugs can be given in proper effective dose? Stopping smoking, has other medical health benefits too.
