Mental imbalance, Can you help me out to bring him in normal stage ?

Hello Doctor , Five yr back my brother was in a college who was ragged and on the same day he took overdose chloroquine. He was a very calm nature guy, very simple. After the incident he just showed opposite character, continous talk, he also does not know what he is taking about. He was diagnosed by a mental doctor. Now the problem is he became very calm n says he does not feel good, Like he is a dead man, just eating , breathing and sleeping. no interest in any thing. I took him to a medicine doctor and did total medical check up. Nothing came out. doctor said it s depression .I am very much worried, I still can t understand what his problem is. Can you please help me out to bring him in normal state of life..

You can go and visit Psychatrist. He will help in bringing him to what he was before the incident.

Hi There,

I completely empathize with your brother. I understand his pain because I too had to undergo the same treatment by my seniors. I was ragged -- beaten up and stripped -- and even today I can't forget all the torture that I went through. It left a huge mark on my psyche. Till about a couple of years ago I used to feel completely impotent and powerless. It was almost as I got raped. I wanted revenge. I would constantly have scenarios in my head when I would kick myself for not having fought back. I had just given in to the torture because it was easire for me at that time. I revisited those scenes many times, and every single time I went through the torture that I had gone through the first time.

As a result, without realizing it I had lost trust in people and I wasn't able to make friends or even rely on my own family members. Talking helps enormously and becasue unknowingly I had become suspicious of people I never talked about the guilt I felt about this incident. Thus I was in a corner -- mentally a broken man I had become suspicious of the very tools I needed to repair myself.

I was having huge anxiety attacks.

But luckily someone suggested I got to a therapist and that helped enormously. Today i am 90 percent healed. And that too without any medication. Whatever you do find a counserol/ a psychiatrist/a psychotherapist -- that is someone your brother can talk to. Do not try it yourself. They are professionals and they know how to build a person's trust and self esteem. For all you know even you brother might be able to suceed in life without any medications.

best of luck and take care

Thank you very much sir for your valuable suggestion. If anybody can give the reference of psychiatrists in orissa it will be good for interaction because my brother is not fluent in english or hindi. he knows oriya.

Thanku you again.
