Theoretically if any mood state which is negative, anxiety, insomnia, appetite change, emotional disturbance, dependence on substances or any other symptom of thought, mood or sleep persists for more than 2 weeks, you must consult a Psychiatrist. Contrary to this, if any symptoms producing acute distress should not be ignored and discussed with your doctor.
It’s a myth that Psychiatrists prescribe medicines to make patients sleep throughout the day. Also these medicines will develop dependence which patient will never be able to leave. Baring few most of psychiatric medicines are non-sedative. Irregular treatments, self modulation of doses and following irregular lifestyles may hamper your treatment. Psychiatric medicines taken under supervision of psychiatrist is not addictive.
Social media, online games, gambling, texting – a smartphone has put up on our fingers too many options to explore. Commonly screen time should not be more than 1 hour/Day.
Our use of smartphone is an addictive behaviour & in generations to come this will be for sure a bigger addicted to this than any substance.
There are more than 300 psychiatric diagnosis. As per the severity, available treatment and good rehabilitation of patient they can lead a normal life. Most of the psychiatric illness have no issues in marriage. But if you are suffering from any such illness or your chosen partner is found to be suffering, contact your nearby psychiatrist to understand the viability.
Duration of treatment depends on your diagnosis, severity of illness, total duration of symptoms, co-morbid medical conditions and your compliance, which means regularity in follow-ups and treatment. Don’t judge psychiatric illness as any odd calamity and seek the required help.
“Shock Treatment” is a misnomer. As depicted in movies and media Psychiatrist don’t give electric shocks to patients. There are various neurostimulation methods now available in Psychiatry to increase the improvement rates in illness and get better prognosis in your illness. Brief Pulse Therapy, rTMS, tDCS are various neurostimulation methods to speed up your recovery or attain break through results in severe symptoms.
Yes they are machines running on electricity but don’t provide painful shocks.
Like any illness of body, psychiatric disorders are illness of mind and brain. Stigma and shame should not hamper your choices of living a healthy and happy life. Social perception has changed in recent times and your openness to accept a psychiatric problem will further strengthen the society to fight mental illness.
In my perception people ignoring psychiatric illness can be called crazy not the one meeting a psychiatrist.
