My husband drinks a lot and that scares me so much that I get nightmares I keep on thinking if something happens to him what will become of my children.Please do help.

He has to be admitted in a rehabilitation center for at least 6 months to get him out of this habit. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend aa meetings and continue this support for a long time. You will also need to attend some sessions and go for al-anon meetings for your co-dependency issues. You cannot treat him in isolation because you have all gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Your children will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father? s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the adult children of alcoholics syndrome acoas, which in effect means that they are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and they will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. So you have a lot on your plate and must act effectively and firmly to bring all of you into therapy. If your husband refuses to go for rehabilitation, then some centers have a method of picking him up when he is totally sloshed and is not able to fight back effectively. They will need your written consent before willing to take him in this manner. Make a serious plan with your children and whoever else? s support you can get and act on it fast.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - How Exercising Can Help You Overcome?

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - How Exercising Can Help You Overcome?

Being a victim or witnessing a horrific accident or personal assault can leave you shocked and scarred. Sometimes, these conditions last for months and years with memories of the traumatic incident triggering intense emotional and physical responses. This is known as post traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. It is a fairly common anxiety syndrome and can be treated in a number of ways including drugs, exercise and psychotherapy. However, this treatment aims only to control the disorder and there is no known cure for PTSD as yet.

Exercise not only keeps the body fit, but also helps the body release endorphins. Endorphins help fight stress, fear and pain. Thus, exercising helps focus on the body and its movements instead of your fears. It can also help elevate the mood of a person. Low to moderate intensity exercising is ideal for a PTSD patient. Aerobics, pilates, yoga or martial arts like tai chi are known to be effective ways of reducing stress and anxiety in PTSD patients. Breathing exercises like pranayama can also help calm and relax the mind.

Exercise for a PTSD patient should be planned in repetitive sets. This enables the person to slowly master the type of exercise being done and regain control and confidence in himself. It also needs to be predictable so as to avoid triggering a PTSD emotional or physical response. Non competitive exercises are better than competitive exercises as it does not create an opportunity for the person to feel stressed. Exercising and practicing breathing techniques can also help a person analyze himself and his response to stressful situations. By understanding their reactions, a person can slowly bring about changes to handle stress in a better way.

For a PTSD patient, exercise should not be seen as a group activity but as an individual effort to increase self control. Patience is key here both for the patient and the therapist. It is also necessary for the person to have realistic goals from his exercise regimen. An exercise program for PTSD patients also needs to be flexible. In order to meet the needs of a patient, it may need to be changed in accordance to the medication he is under. Small incidents like having a flat tire when cycling can trigger anxiety in a person suffering from PTSD. However, if dealt with correctly, it can bolster confidence in the long run.

Lastly, exercising also helps improve self-image and build confidence which helps a PTSD patient break out of his protective shell and socialize with others. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

You are over-reacting due to fear. Your imagination probably runs wild with the over-sensitivity to the prick. It is really a minor pain (literally ?just a pin-prick?) and can never cause you any harm or severe pain. If you convince yourself in the brain that that is what it is, it will never feel so bad. Some nurses are so adept at giving these injections that you will never even feel it! So, change your mind and the injection will be a different experience. There are so many treatments that must be administered through the needle that you cannot really avoid. If you continue to react like this then you could develop hysteria to a simple medical administration.

I am 36 years old unmarried girl. I am having depression, anxiety and stress from last 9 yrs. I feel lethargic all the time. When I wake up in morning after 6-7 hours sleep, I feel lethargic. I sleep for 1 hour after taking tea in morning. After that I do breathing exercise to relax my body and mind. I do meditation for 15-30 mins also. After breathing exercise I feel relaxed and at ease. Is this normal to feel lethargic in morning? I am having lethargy due to depression or stress or lack of sleep or due to poor blood circulation or lack of oxygen in my body? How can I know the reason of having lethargy? Please give me advice.

Feeling worse in the morning is one of the hallmarks of depression. I would strongly recommend you to see a psychiatrist. 9 years of stress is a long period and will have (if not already) impact on your heart and brain also. If you do not want to take medicines, psychotherapy can be done. But I really think it is high time you did something about this.

You are going through grief reaction, which is normal after loss of a loved one. Time is the healer for the emotional and behavioral changes, however if your depression is severe enough to affect you in a significant manner, kindly consult a psychiatrist for short term antidepressant medication, depending on the complaints.

Early Signs You Might Develop a Mental Disorder Later in Life

Early Signs You Might Develop a Mental Disorder Later in Life

Warning Signs of Mental Illness

The mind or the brain is the master computer, the site of our consciousness, thoughts and memories. We often tend to think of our mind as a separate entity, but the mind and the body are linked and just like our body, the mind too is susceptible to illnesses. The idea of mental illness makes us feel vulnerable and helpless and we dismiss the possibility of mental illness as something that “will not happen to me” or “is in my control”. But like all other illnesses, mental disorders too, are ultimately not in our control. More importantly, they are readily treatable with medications and therapy.

Mental illness refers to a wide range of mental health conditions/disorders that affect our mood, thinking and behavior. They include depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, eating disorders, alcohol/drugs abuse and many others. All of us feel sad, anxious, stressed and have occasional sleepless nights. So when does a mental health concern become a problem? When the signs and symptoms persist and affect our regular day-to-day activities, it’s probably time to seek help.

Awareness is the first step to treatment. Learning about the signs and symptoms will allow you to seek help early and get back to a healthy and happy life.
 

If several of the following symptoms are recurring, it is advisable to consult a mental health professional.

1. Withdrawal: Recent social withdrawal and lack of interest in others are a common sign that you may have a problem in hand.

2. Drop in functioning: There is a sudden unusual drop in functioning at school, work or other social activities such as withdrawing from sports, failing in school or difficulty in performing ordinary tasks.

3. The problem with thinking: You face complications with concentration, memory or rational thoughts and speech that are hard to explain.

4. Increased sensitivity: There is a heightened sensitivity to sights, sounds, smells or physical contact and a tendency to avoid stimulating situations.

5. Apathy: There is a loss of desire or initiative to participate in any social activity.

6. Feeling disconnected: You experience a vague feeling of detachment from yourself or your surrounding and a sense of unreality encircles you (paranoia or hallucinations).

7. Illogical thinking: You have an exaggerated belief about your personal powers to understand meanings or influence events. You suffer from irrational or magical thinking, typical of childhood in an adult.

8. Nervousness: You have a feeling of fear, you are skeptical of others or have a strong nervous feeling.

9. Sleep or appetite changes: You experience sleep disorders, significant tiredness and appetite changes and even decline in personal care.

10. Mood swings: There are rapid or dramatic shifts in feelings ranging from excessive anger; hostility or violence to suicidal thoughts.

Hello, Nothing, is so serious, its a matter of attention and liking of your baby. Your kid is not interested to study so he/she goes asleep and that's natural, you can't force any thing which is not acceptable to your child. Relax! gradually,she will grasp study in due course of time, keep your effort on.

I am male frm chennai. 30 years old, single. I have anxiety problems in work, studies. Could not study. Very poor focus, concentration in work and studies. I am the only person in my class during college, also now in work having anxiety, mind related problem. But i am not mad. I am taking treatment frm psychiatrist but no solution. In college and work, my attendance and performance is good only for first 2 months. After that its horrible. I could not work, and also go to office. This problem are there from school days. I take leave often from school days. I could not change myself. Took medicines but no improvement. Is this problem due to my birth defects, when I was in my moms stomach? Is this due to genes of my dad, mom? What is your suggestion, advice? Should I consult genetic doctors for any surgery? Doctors said due to chemical changes in brain [serotonin] may be reason. Even after taking psychiatric medicines, no improvement. Slight OCD is there for 11 years. Still not cured. Do you know any doctors in chennai to consult and find solution? I have seen many doctors but no solution. Waiting 4 your reply.

Hello lybrate-user. Not having good sleep does have its downside, like feeling tired, lack of concentration, irritability, fatigue, etc. What concerns me is your disturbed sleep for weeks now. Its reason needs to be checked in detail, for which a psychiatrist will be appropriate. You must get it done sooner, as any delay will make your health deteriorate further. Once the reason is ascertained, then the remedial action can be taken accordingly, restoring normal sleep and subsequent improvement in your symptoms.

There is no truth to 'less penis growth, less stamina, hair whitening, week hairs cause a great problem. Because of masturbation. Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives.

Geriatric depression is often wrongly taken as to aging and its consequences. The changed role of life and being physically and psychologically dependent makes them elders vulnerable. Presence of medical or surgical illnesses further complicates the diagnosis. Please take him to a psychiatrist for proper evaluation. Do not take his complaints for granted and try to involve him in some daily activity which will give him entitlement and purpose.
