Could wanting to engage in reckless behavior like having random meaningless sex with multiple partners be caused by my strong depression?

Maybe: Sometimes depression is associated with other psychological disturbances which can be confusing. One of those other things can be bipolar disorder which often is associated with cycles of extreme depression and reckless behavior. Please talk to your doc about this as it can potentially be serious.

What does reckless behavior have to do with mental health?

What does reckless behavior have to do with mental health?

A lot: Pull over& listen. You scare me. Do you really think a ''mentally well'' person would drive recklessly? As a psychiatrist, I hope you are kidding me. If not, you walk & think until you understand the death of a child! Go to your nearest morgue & look real good at the gruesome results of reckless driving. Got it? Good.

My boyfriend is having reckless behavior. Is he manic?

My boyfriend is having reckless behavior. Is he manic?

Both treatable: 1) for reckless driver, take keys with you as you leave now. 2) now let him go to a psychiatrist; lithium is cheap & boy does it help mania. But what are we going to about you hooking up with a reckless guy. Not your first, huh? I'm thinking not-reckless consultation with a psychiatrist for this ''habit'' of yours. Really.

How is reckless behavior linked to depression and anxiety?

How is reckless behavior linked to depression and anxiety?

Distantly: Reckless behavior -- acting in a way which could cause harm -- may be a symptom of mania. The link to depression would occur in those with manic-depressive illness (bipolar disorder). There is no obvious link to anxiety except as a co-existing symptom.

I am experiencing low body weight and dullness and pale yellow color if my face. The following also describe me: Impulsive or reckless behavior and B?

Many possibilities: Your yellow color is worrisome for heptatitis; with nausea and vomiting, this should indicate the need for eval by a GI MD; The dullness accompanied by reckless behavior suggests a bipolar process. You need to see your PCP for a full eval and referral to either Psychiatry or GI or both.

I am experiencing impulsive or reckless behavior, socially withdrawn, impaired social skills, compulsive behavior, emotional problems and personality changes.

Recommend assessment: You have described a lot of symptoms that could potentially affect your life and/or that could get worse if not addressed. There are ways to manage those symptoms, but it is important to be assessed by a mental health professional (psychologist or psychiatrist) who can help you to figure out what is causing those symptoms and how to best address them.

What are the causes of my child's naughty behavior?

What are the causes of my child's naughty behavior?

Belief system: We do everything for infants when they cry. This sets up a belief system that we are their servant & only exist to please them. When they begin walking we begin to ignore them, since they can get around & play. They don't like it. Acting out is an amplification of crying behavior. They do it to get noticed & get their way. Parents may find it cute & send a smile their way while saying no-this confuses.

What could be the cause of being alarmed at my own behavior?

What could be the cause of being alarmed at my own behavior?

A problem: Since you didn't mention what your behavior was, I can assume you are either ashamed or embarrassed by it. I would start with trying to seek out some therapy or counseling for yourself to get to the bottom of the situation. It is a little difficult to comment on why you were alarmed, without knowing what happened. I think if it is important enough to post it here, that means you may need help.

Can video games cause behavior problems?

Can video games cause behavior problems?

Yes, they can: Along with increased aggression if the games are violent, protracted use of all media (more than 2 hours/ day) is associated with obesity. Children with adhd often " hyperfocus" and do not appear to hear instructions. Games and tv at bedtime lead to delayed-onset sleep. A fatigued child often is more "hyper" and irritable than drowsy. Turn off games and tv at least 20 minutes before bedtime.

Will giving a cell phone to your kid cause him to have anti-social behavior?

Will giving a cell phone to your kid cause him to have anti-social behavior?

Give guidance too!: Just giving your child adult electronic tools without guidelines on their use is just as dangerous as giving them a chain saw without instruction in how to ue it. But with proper instruction and guidelines, it can be a useful tool. First, two musts - never use in school and never take to bed. Beyond that, you need to set limits and customize its use. Help them learn appropriate social norms in use.

My boyfriend took an ecstacy pill once (1 small capsule, white form) last may and never again did. Is it the cause for his +paranoiaand bad behavior?

My boyfriend took an ecstacy pill once (1 small capsule, white form) last may and never again did. Is it the cause for his +paranoiaand bad behavior?

Ecstasy: What was actually in the pill your boyfriend thought was ecstasy, could have been mdma plus whatever the maker decided to put in there. Your boyfriend does not and cannot know. Ecstasy can damage serotonin receptors in the brain. I doubt this 1 pill is the complete explanation for his difficulties, and still suggest a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation. Ill people often abuse substances too.
