Selfie addiction causing adverse psychological effects

Post by silvermani on Wed Jan 11, 2017 5:23 pm

To me, selfie addiction looks like just another outlet for severely depressed/low esteem people. 

Recently, the parents of a 16-year-old girl, who took 150 selfies a day, approached him. Dr. Dsouza says, “The girl threw her phone in a fit of rage when she did not look good in selfies. The parents bought her a new phone, but her obsession went out of control.”                              Dr. Shetty says rigorous therapy was required to make the woman accept her body image. Another patient was a Class XII girl, who had become irritable and depressed after failing her board exams. “She began taking selfies as a means of gaining social acceptance,” says Dr. Shetty.                                                                                                                                                                                       Dr. Mundhada says he has observed 20-year-olds taking at least 20 selfies a day. To control their obsession, patients are given very low doses of drugs that increases the presence of serotonin in the body, which is a neurotransmitter that is involved in the transmission of nerve impulses.
