Dear friend you said it right. Your life is stressful. Taking care if two toddler is not easy. That may not leave the energy to do things for yourself and perhaps for your relationship with your husband when you are unable to do stress management. Getting agree irritated and even sad is normal response. If you want to work on some positive parenting tips, stress management techniques. That could turn your energy and focus around and you start enjoying your life more and find happiness and satisfaction. Please book an audio consultation and I will be able to help. It is not appropriate to give advice via text without understanding your very unique circumstances and triggers. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Are Kids Affecting Your Relationship? Here is what You Should Do!

Bachelors in Psychology, Masters in Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance and Counselling

Are Kids Affecting Your Relationship? Here is what You Should Do!

It is said that children are a gift and watching them grow up is one of the most joyful things of life. Having said that, many couples initially feel that having a baby will not change the way things are between them and later find out they are wrong. So how do kids affect the bond between a couple and what can be done to make sure that the strain on the parents is not too much to bear?

Having a baby not only changes the equation between the couple but also, in some cases, the equation between the couple and other friends and family. Many parents do receive a lot of support at the time of the delivery and also receive some initial support on making the shift back home from the hospital. After that, in most cases, you are left to fend for yourselves and you have to iron out the details in front of you as you go. In order to do this in the best way possible, it is very crucial for both the parents of the baby to work as a team.

Questions that you need to answer in an objective and frank manner include those which pertain to who does what for the baby, how you will manage adequate rest as well as how you will divide other activities that need to be carried out around the house.

Quite a few couples who, prior to the baby, have amicable relations end up arguing a lot more after the baby is born. The level of exhaustion and responsibility, which comes as part and parcel of not only looking after oneself and providing a level of care to the partner, but also caring jointly for another human is quite a task.

For many couples, the stress shows by the way of strain. Taking a few deep breaths will help tone down anything, which may spark into an argument and will help you solve your issues in a calm manner. Spending time together while running chores for the baby will help you bond better. Taking time out for each other while the baby is asleep or away to a day care or a school is also very important for maintaining a healthy relationship.

As long as there is an effort to adjust to a new normal rather than struggle to deny change, things may be bumpy initially, but it will definitely work out for the better.

Its really a difficult situation for many but not too hard to overcome. You need to get yourself busy start exercising/meditating. Make a schedule stick to it. Try to avoid painful triggers. Practice deep breathing. Break ups happen in everyone's life learn from it grow from it be better prepared for your next relationships. try to see the plus side of the situation. If you need counseling you can revert. Feel strong be strong all the best :)

Autism: Treat It With Homeopathy

Autism: Treat It With Homeopathy

Autism is defined as a neurobiological pervasive development disorder that includes lack of social skills and inability to reciprocate to social interactions. The patient may also have intellectual and cognitive deficits and problems in communication (verbal as well as non-verbal).

Conventional medicine is mostly used to treat some of the symptoms but is never used to cure or provide remedies for autism. A proper professional homeopath will be able to guide you to get the best results for your child and reduce all the problems of autism, if not outright cure it.

Some of the medications that could be used to treat autism are as follows:

  1. Cuprum Metallicum: This works wonders when the child is being very obsessive, angry and is inflexible, tense and is very aggressive towards their parents. Some of these children may even exhibit malicious behaviors and are usually averse to touch or being approached.
  2. Androctonus: A child or a patient who tends to swing wildly from a stable good mood to a destructive mode can be calmed down or evened out by Androctonus. These children also exhibit behaviors of suspiciousness and quickness to act on their compulsion.
  3. Carcinosin: This is very helpful in children affected by autism who are talented, but are obsessive, compulsive, stubborn and also have sleep related issues. These children may also have addictive disorders.
  4. Agaricus: This medication is very good for children who may be mentally and physically awkward and show symptoms like indifference, muttering, talking, shouting or singing but not answering to direct calls or questions. Agaricus is very effective for children who suffer from involuntary jerking when they are awake.
  5. Helleborus: This is a very effective medication when the child is slow and under active and seems to be depressed most of the time. Some of these children may also have muscular weakness and helleborus is very effective in treating them. These are only a few examples of how homeopathy can provide remedies for your autistic child and thus is an effective solution.

Please follow the below recommendation for you: Exercise. Regular exercise can be as effective at treating depression as medication. Not only does exercise boost serotonin, endorphins, and other feel-good brain chemicals, it triggers the growth of new brain cells and connections, just like antidepressants do. Best of all, you don’t have to train for a marathon in order to reap the benefits. Even a half-hour daily walk can make a big difference. For maximum results, aim for 30 to 60 minutes of aerobic activity on most days. Nutrition. Eating well is important for both your physical and mental health. Eating small, well-balanced meals throughout the day will help you keep your energy up and minimize mood swings. While you may be drawn to sugary foods for the quick boost they provide, complex carbohydrates are a better choice. They'll get you going without the all-too-soon sugar crash. For further queries get back to me.

Dear lybrate user, your daughter needs to get rid of her ocd and needs treatment for ocd, pcod and obesity. Marriage is not the solution, it will create more problems in her life, if she gets married without getting treated for her ailments. She probably has low self esteem and may have a few suppressed emotions. It is advisable that you take her to a counsellor. The counsellor will help her to open up and express her feelings. The counsellor will help her to modify her thought processes and thereby will help her have higher self esteem and confidence. This will motivate her to take care of her body and mind and thereby help her in reducing her weight and discard thoughts which are harmful.

His age is 21 but he still looks like a school kid. He is not all growing.

Advanced Skills in Counselling, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, DCS, Hypnotherapist
Psychologist,
His age is 21 but he still looks like a school kid. He is not all growing.
Please be more specific about what you mean by not growing at all. Physically or mentally? some aspects which are genetic cannot be changed like height, facial features etc. Some mental aspects can and may change with time as he grows and gets more experience in life. If you find that he's very much lagging behind his peers in mental development then take him for assessment to clinical psychologist. For physical growth he can participate in physical activity like sports, gym, marathon etc to develop his muscles and look more grown up. However looks are not what matters ultimately. It's their character and personality that makes a person excel in life.

Living with Schizophrenia

BDS, Certification in hypnotherapy, Certification in N.L.P, Certification in Gene and behavior, Psychology at Work
Psychologist, Gurgaon
Living with Schizophrenia

Chronic health disorders like Schizophrenia affect not only the patient, but also the life of their care givers. Though Schizophrenia can be treated to improve the patient's quality of life, it cannot be cured. Hence, it falls on the care giver's shoulders to watch out for symptoms of this disease and manage the person and their disorder. What should one do in such a case?

  1. Educate yourself: The first step towards looking after a person with Schizophrenia is to know the symptoms of the disease. With treatment, these may become better or worse so if you notice any change in the symptoms, bring it to your doctors notice at once.
  2. Reduce stress: Your goal as a schizophrenic person's caregiver should be to give them a calm environment and boost their confidence. Stress has a negative effect on all people and in schizophrenics this effect is much worse. Hence reduce stress and create an effective support system and structured environment for your loved one.
  3. Do not ask the patient to change 'his reality': When a person is suffering from schizophrenia, you should not force them to change their behaviour and reality, in order to adjust in the society at large. You should rather support the patient to accept his reality, to be at peace, since there is a very strong genetic component involved in its aetiology. Also, it is important that, both the patient and the family in particular should opt for regular counselling sessions.
  4. Regular exercise: Schizophrenics need not be cooped up in the house all day. Encourage the patient to go outside and exercise regularly. Exercise reduces stress and produces endorphins that make a person feel energized and happy. This should be complemented by a healthy diet. Minimize the amount of carbs and sugar intake and increase the amounts of omega 3 fatty acids in the patient's diet.
  5. Join a support group: Joining a support group is a very good idea for both the patient and the caregiver. For the patient, this provides a form of social interaction and for the caregiver is a platform to meet people with similar first hand experiences
  6. Encourage treatment: Convincing a Schizophrenic person to seek treatment can be quite challenging. Suggest treating symptoms of the disorder such as insomnia problem and lack of energy rather than the disease itself to make the patient feel more comfortable.  Give the patient options to choose from to make them feel more in control of the situation.
  7. Monitor medication: Once the treatment has started, ensure that the patient sticks to the prescription. Maintain a regular schedule by using weekly pill boxes and alarms. Also keep an eye on the possible side effects of these medicines. Ensure that your doctor has a complete list of medicines that the patient takes so that there is no chance of medicines interacting negatively with each other.
  8. Prepare for crisis situations: It is always a good idea to have an emergency plan in place. Keep emergency contact details of all the doctors and therapists at hand along with the address and phone number of the closest hospital. Share your situation with friends and family so that in case of an emergency, they can be relied upon to take care of your children and other dependants.

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized psychiatrist and ask a free question.

I am an optimistic person and surprisingly composed and gilled with positive energy most of the times even during stressful moments (thats how people around tell me) however at times my ideologies and principles make me behave very stern and demanding. When these don't go well with people around, am enraged. I want to overcome this mental state. I have tried myself to remind of motivational things to avoid me getting disturbed but when it is time I simply can not focus. I do not realize that I am doing harm to others by my stress. Since am not aware of the emotion I really can not try to control or keep calm. Am totally lost in that moment. I seek help from professionals to help me live a better life. Thanks!

Hi there. Being optimistic & calm is one of the best things you have. Use these in a proper way. Try having a very disciplined life style. Leaving the bed in the morning at a fixed time every day, start your more mornings in a relaxed way, do some light exercises, including breathing exercises too, be at your work place at a relaxed time, maybe 5-minutes earlier, learn to appreciate other's, express your views especially when not in tune with other's, in a socially acceptable way. Once you learn to appreciate & express things in a socially acceptable way, your would stay in control, stick with your principles but be open to chage, & again express in a socially acceptable way, wishing you all the best!

What are basic steps to control depression ?

D.C.A.H, F.C.G.P., P.G.D.I.H, F.I.C.A. (USA), M.B.B.S.
Psychiatrist,
This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life/future marriage, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. Want to meet/speak to connect me.

Dear Lybrate user thanks for the query. We all have vast potential in our inner soul what we need is to realise and utilise this potential .the details provided by you indicates that you have lot of energy what you need to channelise this energy in right direction. Any professional can help you in this .if you need my help online you can contact me online. First of all stop fighting with yourself and don't focus on this topic that I cannot this I am emotionally weak etc .its not about weak or strong its your nature ,everyone has different nature no one can say that its right and its wrong. It is only the way we see that situation let us take one example one boy whose mother is dying and by taking one medicine she can alive but the boy has no money then he stole the medicine from the shop as per as law he is wrong but as per as son's point of view he is right. So respect yourself, make some good friends, be social as much as you can, when you start to study or start to do some work say to yourself that at present I will do only this work and when thought runs again say same thing slowly you will get rid off from this thoughts but it can't be in one day, when some thing irritates you or some negative thought runs then full your mouth with air and then exhale do at least 15-20 times ,share your feelings with someone. Take care.
