I am a 24 year old guy who is suffering from anxiety and panic disorder from past 1 year, I got my mri done in an apprehension that I might have some mental disorder, but it came out to be normal, I have been trying to control this on my own since long, but now its getting tough, I stay in a trance, and suddenly I go into that anxiety, my thoughts are not in my control, I am confused, not able to concentrate on my work or anything, I am afraid that this might hamper my career, please suggest, is it possible to get rid of this, is anxiety curable. At times I feel I am being to harsh on my self for my past mistakes. I just want a resort, I feel like life is worthless and this problem is making it worse. I have a good life, a good job, loving parents, everything what a man can want. But still its all a waste. Please revert with a suggestion.

Mri scans will not necessarily reveal any mental disorder. The other thing is that you should now stop trying to work this out on your own because it is causing you quite a lot of discomfort and disturbance. What you need to do is visit a counselor immediately and work out the emotional baggage that is bothering you to cause this anxiety, especially fear. Fear is the key for resolving the anxiety, successfully. These attacks can become more frequent and more forceful. I think you stated it rather clearly that your past mistakes are sitting heavily on your head and it is bothering you enough to nearly cripple you. There could be a lot of guilt that needs to be worked out. Anxiety is curable but since you have a record of trying to work it out yourself, I am afraid that you may not comply with the complete cooperation that the treatment requires. Forewarned you should be forearmed. If the counselor thinks that you need medication, so be it. In the meantime get your body fit: it plays a very important role in order to harbor a fit mind. So exercise regularly, go for yoga and meditation to train the brain, sleep well and eat healthily. Your life can be wonderful and normal because of your motivation and support.

Dear lybrate-user, Ambition should always be first. It is the crucial phase in your life, and any heart matters should always be considered later. Talk to yourself about it. Once you are well settled and get a good job, the girl will also respect you more. Going anywhere, is not the solution. Stay in your house and be mentally strong. Do not contact her. Concentrate on what is important for you now. Please revert to me after your interview. All the best for interview. Just stop your thoughts from wavering.

LAUGHTER: THE BEST MEDICINE

Hypnotherapist, DCS, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, Advanced Skills in Counselling
Psychologist,
LAUGHTER: THE BEST MEDICINE
If people understood the benefits of laughter and it could be packaged and sold in bottles, then it would sell the most. Laughter and humour is contagious and easy to make and use. It has many therapeutic benefits besides just enjoying a good joke. When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. Laughter also triggers healthy physical changes in the body. Humor and laughter strengthen your immune system, boost your energy, diminish pain, and protect you from the damaging effects of stress.

A. Laughter is good for your health:
1.Laughter relaxes the whole body. A good, hearty laugh relieves physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes after.
2.Laughter boosts the immune system. Laughter decreases stress hormones and increases immune cells and infection-fighting antibodies, thus improving your resistance to disease.
3.Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of well-being and can even temporarily relieve pain.
4.Laughter protects the heart. Laughter improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help protect you against a heart attack and other cardiovascular problems.

B. The link between laughter and mental health:
1.Laughter dissolves distressing emotions. You can’t feel anxious, angry, or sad when you’re laughing. You will feel lighter, happier and confident.
2.Laughter helps you relax and recharge. It reduces stress and increases energy, enabling you to stay focused and accomplish more. It has the capacity for a person to be in touch with the present and bounce back faster from problematic situations.
3.Humor shifts the perspective, allowing you to see situations in a less serious light. You will be able to see your own mistakes as errors of judgement, learn from them and move on. You will feel less anxiety and panic reducing your heart rate and muscle tensions.

Shared laughter is one of the most effective tools for keeping relationships fresh and exciting. All emotional sharing builds strong and lasting relationship bonds, but sharing laughter and play also adds joy, vitality, and resilience. And humor is a powerful and effective way to heal resentments, disagreements, and hurts. Laughter unites people during difficult times.

C. Humour improves your Social Relationships
Incorporating more humor and play into your daily interactions can improve the quality of your love relationships— as well as your connections with co-workers, family members, and friends. Using humor and laughter in relationships allows you to:
1.Be more spontaneous. Humor gets you out of your head and away from your troubles.
2.Let go of defensiveness. Laughter helps you forget judgments, criticisms, and doubts.
3.Release inhibitions. Your fear of holding back and holding on are set aside.
4.Express your true feelings. Deeply felt emotions are allowed to rise to the surface. Its easier for others to take constructive feedback when sandwiched between something light and positive.

D. Making opportunities to laugh together:
1.Watch a funny movie or TV show.
2.Go to a comedy club.
3.Read the funny pages.
4.Seek out funny people.
5.Share a good joke or a funny story.
6.Check out your bookstore’s humor section.
7.Host game night with friends.
8.Play with a pet.
9.Go to a “laughter yoga” class.
10.Fool around with children.
11.Do something silly.
12.Make time for fun activities (e.g. bowling, picnics, games)

However, it is important to keep in mind that you don’t laugh at someone or in their absence. Don’t resort to sarcasm and witticism, which is not clean humor and showing sensitivity towards other people’s sentiments. So take out your laughter arsenal and get ready to shoot.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder - 8 Signs To Watch Out For!

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Navi Mumbai
Narcissistic Personality Disorder - 8 Signs To Watch Out For!

Narcissistic personality disorder is a mental syndrome in which individuals have their very own inflated feeling of self-significance, a deep requirement to be inspired and an absence of compassion for others. However, behind this cover of ultra-confidence mask, lies a delicate self-esteem that is helpless against the slightest criticism.

A narcissistic personality disorder causes issues in numerous areas of life, for example, work, school, relationships or monetary issues. Here are a few signs and symptoms that can show if a person is suffering from this disorder:

  1. Are highly reactive to criticism. People with this disorder are highly reactive to being criticised by the others or anything they assume is adversely affecting their identity. They get defensive when questions are posed.
  2. Have low self-esteem. This arena of their psyche is complicated because externally their self-esteem would seem to be higher and more guaranteed than pretty much anybody else's. They are continuously headed to justify themselves, both to others as well as their own self-esteem.
  3. Can be unnecessarily defensive and self-righteous. Anything said or done that they see as scrutinising their competence can activate their vigorous self-defensive systems. This is the reason why such a large number of non-narcissists have shared that it is so hard to break through to them in different situations of conflict.
  4. Respond to opposite perspectives with outrage. It is not specific feeling of dread or surrender that draw out their alleged narcissistic rage. These people respond with heated emotions when others convey their most profound insecurities excessively close to the surface. The reason that sentiments of outrage and anger are so normally communicated by them is because they hide feelings of shame and anxiety underneath it.
  5. Project others qualities, attributes, and practices they will not acknowledge in themselves. Since they are constrained to conceal their defeats, downfalls or shortcomings in their mental self-image, they routinely divert any unfavourable evaluation of themselves externally. It is difficult to break into the root cause of their aggression because their feelings are too underdeveloped to talk about it in matured terms.
  6. Have poor interpersonal boundaries and limits. It has been said in regards to narcissists that they cannot tell where they end and the other individual starts. They tend to see others as extensions of themselves. They view them as existing essentially to serve their own needs as they put their requirements before anyone else.
  7. Have an exceptionally solid feeling of privilege. They have nonsensical desires of getting good treatment by others or others complying with his or her desires.
  8. Need sympathy. People with this disorder are unwilling to perceive or relate to the sentiments and needs of the others.

Accept the reality. This is the most difficult stage. Mind will not accept the reality easily but, you have to do it. Stop becoming victim. Accept the reality and stop self destruction. You don't need to prove anything to anybody. Understand this and prepare your mind set. Stop having self pity and make your life interesting. And surely for that you don't require your ex. You are the only one who can make it. Get busy, stop living lonely. Homeopathic treatment and counselling is suggested in all kinds of depression. Homeopathic medicines are safe and natural. Your feedback and recommendation matters. Thank-you.

I am suffering from marital discord and my wife hardly communicates when my parents are around. She leaves home at her own will. I am not finding any source of happiness in my marriage of 5 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is a long-standing factor, repeated and confirmed as very critical to sustain a marriage: communication. When there is no communication, there is danger that the union will collapse. You must immediately reach out to a marriage counselor and both of you must attend the sessions. If she is unwilling, you at least go and seek help as to how to make something happen from your side. Ideally, it would best for both to attend, but she may not cooperate like you have indicated. Sometimes you have to take matters in your own hands to do the right things. Passivity under these circumstances is criminal. Be firm but with love. Even when she does not talk, you can initiate conversations in subtle ways, skirting controversial issues and gradually improving and increasing non-threatening dialogues. For example, ignore the non-communication during your parents? visits but as soon as they are gone and she is open to some talking, discuss matters of the house, children, her work or yours, old friends etc. There are so many topics that are easy for conversing about. Your parents, don? t forget, are her in-laws. There is a host of problems between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law universally, that it is referred to as a syndrome. If you discus controversies with her, you will be pressing the wrong buttons. Don? t even bother about your parents being respected, if you want to save your marriage. In fact, you can tell them not to visit for some time until something positive happens between you two. You must be ingenious without it being obvious. If you play the cards right, you can make conducive communication happen in your marriage as though you had never had a problem at all!

Hi. First, learn to relax your mind! Taking unnecessary tension will stop your brain from functioning normally and it would never ever give you solution to your problem! Homoeopathic medicines are very effective for increasing concentration and if done with yoga, will give you great results! But practice the following poses if you don’t have any medical condition or pregnancy or else take an advice from your concern doctor and then only perform these. 1. Shashankasana: Sit in Vajrasana with hands on the thighs. The upper body is straight and relaxed. Inhaling raise both arms above the head. Exhaling keep the back straight and bend upper body and arms forward from the hips, until arms and forehead touch the floor. The buttocks remain on the heels. Breathing normally remain in this position for a while. Relax the whole body, especially the shoulders, neck and back. Inhaling keep the back straight and raise the upper body and arms. Exhaling return to the starting position. Practice the exercise 3 times in total. Remain bending forward for sometime and consciously perceive the movement of the breath on the spine. 2. Virasana: Sit in Vajrasana. Hands rest on the thighs and the body is relaxed. Bring the left foot beside the right knee with the sole of the foot flat on the floor. Place the left elbow on the left knee and rest the chin in the hand. Right hand rests on the right thigh. Tuck the toes of the right foot under. The right knee remains in contact with the floor. Transfer the weight onto the right heel. Concentrate on a fixed point in front. Breathing normally remain in this position for as long as comfortable. Return to the starting position. Repeat on the other side. 3. Sit in Vajrasana. Body is straight and hands rest on the thighs. Relax the whole body. Inhaling stretch the arms above the head, then bring them behind the back and grasp the left wrist with the right hand. Exhaling bend the body forward from the hips, keeping the back straight, until the forehead touches the floor. The buttocks remain on the heels. Breathing normally concentrate on the whole body and relax. Remain in this position for as long as comfortable. Inhaling slowly bring the body upright.

No stick to one doctor. Medicines take atleast 4-6 weeks to come in full action may be more in severe depression, but it will certainly work. Also, never stop medication on your own or the patient will relapse with even more intensity of symptoms. Have faith. Its not like headache you have one pill and get over the ache, this will take time just like it took time to build up.
