Mental Health - Why You Should Not Ignore It?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, CE (New York)

Mental Health - Why You Should Not Ignore It?

For a fully functional and productive life, a person requires a healthy body and a healthy mind. Mental health issues could range from depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder, dementia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, autism and other causes. Hence, it is important that a person pays attention to these mental health disorders to avoid further problems in their lives, as well as the lives of the people around them.

Here are a few reasons as to why a person should not avoid or ignore their mental health problems:

  1. Better Physical Health: There is a solid association between the brain and the body. In case you are in physical pain, your work and family life might be influenced or you will be unable to do the activities you might like. This can prompt anxiety, nervousness and depression. People with physical health issues are three times more prone to look for mental health care than those without physical conditions as physical health problems can prompt mental distress and mental health issues can impair your physical health.
  2. Enhanced Productivity and Financial Stability: Stressful situations may trigger reactions that can make a person unproductive and lead to financial problems as well. Some people end up abandoning their homes, going bankrupt or homeless after trying to manage some sort of mental illness.
  3. Less Strain on the Family: Mental sickness or disorders influence families as well. The children of individuals with mental health issues are at more serious danger for misuse, disregard and an extensive variety of emotional and behavioral issues. Since they cannot look up to their parents for help and they frequently isolate themselves from their friends and most of them do not get the required social backing. Much of the time, the impact extends into adulthood, driving children to look for psychological or mental treatment of their own.
  4. Evasion of Crime and Victimization: A few studies recommend that individuals with untreated mental health, particularly in combination with other risk factors, might be at risk of carrying out criminal activities, violence or most probably becoming victims themselves. The danger increases gradually when the individual uses medications or alcohol or has acute symptoms. It could also happen if they are not aware of their mental state or have a poor adherence to medication. Usually, acts of violence happen against relatives or somebody in the individual's nearby group of friends or in close proximity to them.
  5. A Longer, Happier Life: Individuals with even a mild mental health issue may have a lower life expectancy and a short life span. Those with the largest amounts of depression or nervousness had the danger of death that increased an incredible ninety-four percent, mostly identified with heart diseases.

Sir/madam, my age is 28 years. For the last 2-3 weeks I'm unable to sleep properly. I feel over thinking is my problem, my question is whether my problem can be cured by psychiatric techniques i.e. May be something like hypnotizing as we watch in some movies. Please answer to my question. THANKING YOU SIR/MADAM.

Sleep problem is usually due to so many worries and unsolved problems related to family and employment and sometimes due to changes in chemicals in the brain. This problem needs counselling and behaviours therapy and sometimes short course of medication for 3-4 months and everything will be normal. Also meditation and exercise will help you a lot.

Depression in the Elderly - How to Detect it in Time!

MBB, DPM

Depression in the Elderly - How to Detect it in Time!

Depression is a serious yet common mental health problem that can affect all age groups ranging from young children to the elderly. It is found to be more common among women when compared to men. It can take a toll over one’s peace of mind, physical health, interpersonal relationships as well as job performance (or academic performance). What is deceiving is, the person can also be functioning well, in which case, it can go unnoticed, leading to grave consequences. The good news is that depression is treatable and individuals are able to function much better with treatment. Affected individuals feel sad most of the time. He/she loses the ability to enjoy/be happy. 

As a result of this, the daily activities that he/she participates in do not seem to appeal to him/her anymore. This is especially true in the case of socialising. The affected person will just seem to drop out of social circles. This can be said to be ironic because it is times like these when the individual with depression is in need of friends the most! 

The individual seems to have an overriding belief that the status quo will not be altered by anything and he or she will be stuck in a rut in perpetuity. In other words, depressed people experience a perennial feeling of helplessness. Negative thoughts can also drive one to commit suicide. 

A lot of people who have depression tend to experience a loss of energy. As a matter of fact, this is quite the case with men who enter a phase of depression, as the symptoms which are displayed by them can contrast sharply to those displayed by women. One of the reasons for men tending to report a higher chance of this than women is the fact that they are less likely to express feelings of self loathing. Rather, they usually talk about sleep problems and a loss of interest in things that once they might have found to be interesting or even captivating. They also gradually get quite irritable.

When it comes to women, guilt is quite likely to be felt. They may also sleep a lot longer than what is considered to be normal. Eating habits are a better indication of the presence or absence of depression than most people would realise. Overeating is one of the prime signs, especially in the case of women who are depressed. This leads to them putting on weight, as the rise in the intake of food is compounded by a drop in the amount of healthy physical activity. On the other hand, many may also experience loss of appetite, which over a period of time can even lead to weight loss. Some women who are depressed also complain of aches and pains in the body.

A few individuals who are depressed also complain of weird experiences, like being able to hear voices calling out to them, abusing them in dirty language, asking them to hurt themselves (hallucinations). Some may be found to be extremely suspicious about people around them. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

I want to stop smoking habit I smoke 3-4 cigarettes a day. I tried nicotex chewing gum but, it doesn't helped me more. I think my sexual life is hampering because of it. And, i also drink 60 to 80 ml alcohol a day. Please suggest me. How can I stop smoking and improve my sexual life? And is there any effect of drinking also.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Congratulations for deciding to quit smoking and alcohol. Nicotex is only a replacement for withdrawal symptoms of cigarettes, like headache, irritability, memory lapses, less concentration, increased appetite, etc. If you don't have any withdrawal symptoms, there is no need to use nicotex. Please continue to motivate yourself on giving up smoking at least for 12 -24 weeks. Then the craving will reduce. Even now, you can observe the craving going away like a passing cloud. Wait for it without smoking. Both alcohol and nicotine affect sex life. It is better to stop both and start enjoying sex life. There can be other causes for sexual dysfunction. You can consult a psychiatrist or sexologist for diagnosis and treatment. All the best.

Hello! I am in relationship since 5 years I love him very much but when ever he keeps me away when he is with his family he does not even call me for days I really get very angry we exchange lots pf words b/w us what should I do to control my anger?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
If he has an explanation for his behaviour, then it will be okay if the reasons are appropriate. So, ideally, you should ask him why he does that. It could also be that he has not told his family about you and it may be because he is afraid or is not sure. But there is no point of you living in doubt and allowing this impasse. Talk to him and get out the truth soon. Your anger is okay unless you lose control over it.

The end of a relationship often feels like the end of the world. After all the time and energy you have invested in it, it is very painful when it gets over. Keep in mind that life is full of ups and downs; nothing is permanent. The pain you feel today will go away with time. Give yourself time to heal. Give time, time. In the meanwhile don't isolate yourself from your friends and family. Confide in someone you are comfortable with. Make a list of life goals, and plan how to achieve them. Relationships are an important part of your life, but they are not everything. Spend time with those close to you, indulge in some enjoyable activities. Keep yourself busy. Slowly you will see that there is a lot to life. However if you are feeling suicidal, consult a psychiatrist immediately. Don't wait to feel worse.

Hi lybrate-user, I don't think you are suffering from depression. There are times in life when are daily schedule is impacted because of some negative event around us or due to lack of immediate goals. I suggest that you go for personal counselling with a Psychologist where you can talk about your daily challenges. Once you will open up with someone, you will instantly begin to feel better. Subsequently, your daily schedule will also improve as the Psychologist will understand your trigger areas and help you learnt techniques to overcome them. Take care.

Ways To Deal With Stress!

PGDRP, MPhil, PGDGC
Psychologist, Delhi
Ways To Deal With Stress!

Stress happens when the demands placed on you are too much and cause a burden on you, for example, work, school or relationships surpass your capacity or ability to adapt. Sometimes stress can be a little beneficial in the form of a support that gives the drive to some people to get their work done on time and meet due dates and deadline. However, an extraordinary measure of stress can create health and well-being issues. They can lead to problems in cardiovascular and central nervous systems and take a serious emotional problem.

Untreated and chronic stress can bring about serious health conditions including tension, sleeping disorder, muscle pain, hypertension and a weak immune system. Stress can fuel other diseases and disorders, for example, heart diseases, depression and obesity most of the times. By discovering positive, healthy and solid ways to oversee stress as it happens, a significant number of these negative wellbeing outcomes can be decreased. Here are five effective ways to manage stress:

  1. Take a break from the stress: It might appear to be hard to divert yourself from a major work schedule. However, when you give yourself consent to step away from it, you let yourself have sufficient energy to accomplish something else, which can help you have another viewpoint or practice methods to feel less stressed. It is critical not to ignore the stress factor. However, even twenty minutes to yourself is useful.
  2. Workout: Exercise benefits your emotions and brain along with your body. We continue finding out about the long term advantages of a normal exercise schedule. In any case, even a ten or fifteen-minute walk, run, swim or yoga session during an unpleasant time can give a quick impact that can keep you going for a few hours.
  3. Laugh and try to stay happy: Our brains are interconnected with our feelings and outward appearances. When individuals are stressed, its shows up on their face. So laughter can alleviate some of that pressure and enhance the circumstance.
  4. Get social backing: Try to call a friend or send an email to someone regarding your problems. When you impart your worries or sentiments to someone else, it helps calm the stress. In any case, it is critical that the individual whom you converse with is somebody whom you trust and someone who can understand and accept you. In case that your family is the stressor, for instance, it may not ease your stress in which case, you may need a friend.
  5. Meditate: Meditation and prayer can help the brain and body to unwind and concentrate properly. It can help people see new points of view, create self-sympathy and forgiveness. While practising meditation, individuals can discharge feelings that may have been bringing about physical pain. Much like a workout, research has demonstrated that practising meditation can prove to be very helpful. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

How to relieve stress during break-up
And what are the important exercise to build up confidence rather than fuming?
lybrate-user breakup is a psychologically hard time for any body so I would suggest you to few tips which helps you in overcoming from your problem. 1- Accept what ever happened with you. 2- Try to develop some social support to system like contact your old friends, increase your sodial media presence, take interest in selfie and post it or try to communicate your problem with your parents if it's last long. 3 - Don't change your routine Life and try to manage time as you are managing previously. 4 - Increase your physical exercise or you may join gym too. 5- Try to write whatever happens with you and accept its as a experience in your life. This is all from my side and after all these if you still feel Stress than must consult any good psychologist and take individual Counseling atleast 3 months.

I am suffering Very high depression and fobia last 15 years treatment are running but problem is standing so what I do?
I hope you are combining medication with some counseling. This is extremely important and you will experience additional benefits and will learn some coping skills and techniques which will carry you in good stead. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Sir, my name is Fazal Hussain, from Bhadradri Kothagudem Dist. For the last 15 years I have been suffering with anxiety neurosis, palpitation, hyper curiosity to do any work. I feel irritation to search any books or documents I require, and suddenly start shaking of limbs and irritation. I am also having insomnia. I am 57 years old now. I used to ride bicycle to my office. Do yoga, meditation, breathing exercises. No non veg. I have been contacting psychiatrists whenever the problem was more. They prescribed inderal, restyled, escitalopram, clonazepam, etc. I used to take the medicine for about a month or so and whenever I feel comfort I used to stop the medicine and sincerely tried to control by natural means of yoga, cycling, breathing exercises etc. With soft veg food. As per last year's test reports of ECG, 2D Echo, TMT, there is no heart related ailments. But for the last one year I am having high bp. Physicians prescribed 40 mg telma. Even with telma, the BP remains 160/100. At that time if I take 20 mg inderal+ 0.5 mg restyl, the BP remains normal temporarily. Psychiatrists advising inderal+clonazepam +escitalopram and physician advising telma. I am in the confused state. However as per the doctors advise I am taking telma, inderal, clonazepam, doth at present but the BP is always fluctuating. For hypothyroidism I am taking 20 mcg of thyroxine daily for the last one year. In view of the above, I would like to see you sir. Thanks for patience reading.

Dear user, Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. These feelings may cause physical symptoms, such as a racing heart and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. Anxiety medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorders mainly because medicines do not alter behavior. Behavior change and Continuous practice of the changed behavior cure anxiety. I suggest anxiety education, progressive counseling and progressive psychotherapy. I assure you complete cure. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you tips to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear user, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Take care.
