Fear Setting For Stress Management

Fear setting is an amazing tool that can be used to get over almost any kind of fear or doubt in your mind. Most often it is prescribed by self-help gurus and productivity experts who recommend it as a means to get over fears of taking chances.

My 12 year old daughter struggling with ocd. Here doc gave her setra 25 mg for a week and from this Monday it's increased to 50 mg. Still no improvement. What to do? How long will it take for the medicine to work?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Vijayawada
It takes a minimum of 6 weeks for the medication to work effectively. If there is no improvement then the doctor will further increase the dose or add an other medication. So, you have to have patience till that time.

How to overcome with major depression? Help me out? I am suffering from very heavy depression. How to get rid of this.

Psychologist, Delhi
How to overcome with major depression? Help me out? I am suffering from very heavy depression. How to get rid of this.
Hello lybrate-user. Depression is a tough thing. I want to share with you some of my strategies I developed and wrote about to overcome depression without medication. 1.Art. Creating art I found to be very therapeutic. I would create paintings in my early stage of therapy to release my emotions and express what I was thinking. At the end of the process I had produced a piece of work that now sits on my parents mantel piece and helps me remember the time when I overcame great difficulties. 2.Get rest. Sleeping, particularly in the early stages of depression is necessary for your mind to heal. When I first fell ill I was sleeping a lot, for around about 3 weeks. Sleeping has been scientifically proven to have great benefit and also to help you recover from your ordeal. I wrote a blog about this a while ago to try and help give more clarity on this. The importance of sleeping when healing from depression 3.Keep a journey journal. Every day, when you are awake, try to write how you are feeling, no matter how bad it may seem. Writing it down helps to get it out of your head and also identify when things are not as bad as you previously thought. Some days will be better than others and as you progress through your journey, eventually, you will see a real difference until you no longer need to write any more in your journal. I still keep my journals I wrote in and when I look back at them, I see just how far I have come to where I am today. 5 reasons why you should consider keeping a 'Journey Journal' 4.Set goals, wild crazy goals as well as achievable ‘realist’ ones. All people are goal orientated, fact. No matter what it is, it can be meeting a perfect partner, having large groups of friends, being a great artist, running your own business, settin a meal plan or simply forcing yourself to get out of bed in the morning at a certain time. These are all goals! I encourage you to get a piece of paper (or in the back of your journal) and write out 10 different goals you’d like to achieve. If you are struggling to get up in the morning before 9 am say, maybe one of your goals can be to try to get up for 8: 30 am. Possibly another goal might be to get a shower every day if you have stopped doing that. These small goals can work you towards bigger ones. It is important to dream big too so set your biggest dream goal in action too! So imagine your wildest dream, do you want to be a millionaire? Then set it as a goal. It is achievable but the goal is the first step on the journey towards it. I have also wrote a blog about goal setting here:- The importance of goal setting for depression 5.Exercise. As hard as it may seem, do push yourself to exercise. This should be one of your top goals. Exercising releases natural endorphins and the good news is, you don’t have to go the gym either! You can simply go the park for a long walk (the double effect of being in nature will be of great benefit to you ), or you can use a computer such as the wii fit or xbox 360 with kinect to train yourself at home. Actually I used a combination of the wii fit and walking the family dog on long walks to help stimulate serotonin release in my brain naturally and it did help, plus I was starting to see a difference in my weight and body shape which gave me some more confidence and hope. 9 Reasons why regular exercise is good for depression - Battle of Mind Blog 6.Watch motivational videos and films. When I was going through difficulties and I found it hard to motivate myself I would watch motivational videos. There was one in particular that was quite powerful to me about gladiator and how you achieve a good life and one you can be proud of when you look back. In fact, with your question this may well be of benefit for you to watch as well:- Gladiator mindset and inspiration to overcome pain and adversity 7.Laugh even when you don’t want to. Watch your favourite comedians, things that you know are funny to you. Even force yourself to smile for at least 30 seconds, when you smile you can’t feel sad and it naturally lifts you! Try it now, go on! See how you feel after smiling that long!:) Meditate. I can’t state enough how important meditation is for a peaceful mind. I use guided meditations in an app. Simply look for one in your chosen app store, there are plenty of free versions. It is reaaaally good and with regular practice you will find some peace of mind. 8.Assess Relationships. Are all your relationships healthy? Not just love relationships but also friendships? It is sometimes important to detach from people who are causing you distress as sometimes letting go is not only beneficial for you but also to the person you are letting go off. 9.Seek A Therapy. Lastly but not least, you really need to try different therapies alongside exercising, goal setting, sleeping well and finding motivation. I am not ashamed to say that I have tried over six different therapies before I found the one that worked well for me. For me personally I found hypnotherapy to be of great help but maybe speak to your GP before you access a specialist to see if that therapy would be suitable for you. Seek a therapy - helping you find a local therapist easily Thank YOu All The BEst.

4 Causes Of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder And Its Treatment!

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chandigarh
4 Causes Of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder And Its Treatment!

Obsessive compulsive disorder is a condition, which is characterized by a constant occurrence of compulsive behavior and obsessive thoughts. People across all ages are affected by this condition; in some cases, it might start early whereas, in others, it develops around the early years of childhood. This is a very distressing condition as it can cause significant interference in your daily life. It is recommended to get it treated at the earliest to manage its symptoms effectively.

Symptoms

Obsessive compulsive disorder causes an obsession about an unwanted (forbidden or unfounded) thought, urge or an image. This obsession may result in disgust, unease and feelings of anxiety. A compulsion is defined as a certain behavior that is usually repetitive, something that you tend to do over and over again to get rid of the constant anxiety. An example would be to constantly check the windows of the house resulting from an uncorroborated fear that the house may be burgled.

The causes of obsessive compulsive disorder are:

  1. Chemical imbalances in the brain marked by low serotonin levels
  2. Family history of OCD
  3. People who are meticulous, neat and methodical might develop OCD
  4. Certain traumatic events such as having been bullied or abused can also cause OCD

Treatment

There are multiple treatment options. The aim of the treatments is to manage the symptoms and improve the quality of life. The treatments are:

  1. Medications: Certain antidepressants that alter the chemical imbalance in the brain can treat OCD.
  2. Psychological therapy: Counselling or cognitive behavioral therapy is very effective in treating OCD. Cognitive behavioral therapy aims to modify one’s thinking pattern and get rid of unnecessary fears and thoughts. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I am having stress without doing any work, it affects on my health, how to relieve that? Please advise
Hi Lybrate user Do some productive work. Make a list of your thoughts and try to identify the causes of your stress, and make some effort to manage it on a healthy way. Express your feelings with a close family member or friend, this is one of the healthy way to relieve stress. Spend some time with your hobby. Deep breathing, muscle relaxation, yoga can also very helpful for you. Try to maintain a healthy lifestyle like eat healthy, get enough sleep. Stress is our part of life, it would not disappear from our life, but buy paying attention to what causes your stress and practicing ways to relax you can counter some of the bad effects of stress and increase your ability to cope with challenges. Do some activities you love to do, like painting, cooking, listening music. Thanks.

Make some lifestyle changes, they would help you break the monotony in the routine and give you a window to gain some fresh perspective about your life. Analyse your lifestyle and habits, introspect what could be leading to your present lack of enthusiasm. Like, you can start deep breathing exercise each day. Sleep well and avoid eating oily food. There could be some underlying unresolved issues that might be causing low mood. You could consult a psychologist for detailed assessment and therapy. Take care.

Hello Your question is quite relevant. The problem with mixing pathies is often that there is little knowledge about possible drug drug interaction. Which means no studies have been done which study the possible side effects or even good effects of combining the two pathies. In such a case if any side effect were to occur, it would be difficult to know the possible medication responsible. May I recommend you to put faith in one first and also undergo a proper evaluation from an experienced psychiatrist. Good luck.

Hi! Yes you are suffering from depression and naturally it is very common to have suicidal thoughts, feeling low, not interested to speak to others, want to be alone etc. Depression is not a disease it is an emotional feeling due to unpleasant situation or due to loss of someone very near or dear to you, but yes we human beings are mostly capable of overcoming such problems in the course of time, but when we are unable to manage and if it does bother your day to day life you feel like giving up your life, but that is the time when you need to approach or seek a Professional Psychologist to overcome from this problem and I do appreciate you for coming forward to seek help. There are many who are hesitant and lead a difficult life, my advise for them also would be to come forward and seek a Professional Psychologist and undergo the treatment for the same. You can definitely seek or consult with a Professional Psychologist at your locality or online Professional Psychologist who can help you overcome this problem completely. If you are interested you can contact me either through text chat or online consultation yes you are most welcome. Take care. Be relaxed. With regards,

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder(OCD) - Causes, Symptoms and Treatments!

Ma Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Pune
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder(OCD) - Causes, Symptoms and Treatments!

OCD or obsessive compulsive disorder is a mental condition, which traps people in a cycle of repetitive thoughts that push them to do repetitive behaviors. As the name states, the obsession over certain things compels them to do it over and over again. These actions will only help you feel relieved for a short time and soon the cycle starts back again.

Symptoms of OCD

The symptoms of OCD are classified into two groups, one for the obsessive behavior and the other for compulsive behavior. Some of the common symptoms for these are mentioned below:

Obsessive behaviors

As the name states this means obsessing over certain things, which varies from person to person. Some of the things could be:

  1. Being scared about making mistakes.
  2. The fear of being embarrassed in public situations.
  3. Constantly being scared about contamination by germs, microbes or dirt.
  4. Doubts about sure and simple situations and the need to be constantly reassured about them.

Compulsive behaviors

The obsessions usually results in compulsive behaviors, which you may need to perform to reassure and relieve yourself of the anxiety temporarily. Some of these may include:

  1. Trying to constantly arrange things in a certain way and still not being satisfied.
  2. Thoughts, words and images being stuck in your head throughout the day that may keep you disturbed and cause to lose sleep.
  3. You may even repeat specific words or actions multiple times as a measure of self reassurance.
  4. Hoarding of items, which have no value.

Causes of OCD

Biological factors: Certain chemical imbalances in the brain may lead to OCD, which may happen due to hormonal or biological changes. In fact certain infections are also known to trigger OCD in people.

Environmental factors: Certain types of mental trauma have been known to trigger OCD as well, such as

  1. Office, school, college or other work related stresses over a long period of time.
  2. The passing away of a near and dear one.
  3. Relationship problems.
  4. Repressed abuses from earlier in life.

Treatments

Most treatments of OCD are categorized into two types:

  1. Cognitive behavioral therapy: This is a counseling based therapy where you may be slowly asked to face your fears and overcome them over a period of time.
  2. Medications: Antidepressants, inhibitors, or antipsychotic drugs or relaxants in various combinations may be used to treat OCD.
  3. Electroconvulsive therapy: Only in the rarest of cases would doctors consider electroconvulsive therapy, if the patient is a danger to themselves or others around them.
