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. 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.

Hi, I can understand your concern. Encourage your partner to be more open with you. Sharing more of your emotions with your partner and encouraging your partner to do the same with you will help strengthen your bond. Make it a habit to confide in each other every day. Some opening questions for confiding in your partner include: “Remember when we used to go walking and talking around the neighborhood, walking the dogs together? Let’s do that again tonight…How about it?” “What happened yesterday between us didn’t go so well, and I want to try another way-can we start over and this time I will take some deep breaths and listen more patiently. I also want to say what works better for me and find out what you are hoping for.” Be considerate of each other’s needs. In order to move forward in your relationship, you will both need to learn how to understand each other’s needs. The best way to uncover what your partner needs and let him or her know what you need is to talk about it. If you are not sure what your spouse wants or needs, the best way to find out is to ask questions and listen. If you still are not sure, ask more questions. For example, you could say something like, I think that what you need from me is ________. Is that what you mean? Ask your partner to commit to change. If you decide that you are ready to move forward in your relationship with your partner, you should ask your partner to promise you that he or she will not follow the same pattern of behavior that led to the affair. Ask your partner to articulate or even write out what that behavior includes and commit to change Establish consequences to deal with the possibility of another affair. Since there is a possibility that your partner may cheat again, you should work together to establish consequences for another affair. These consequences may include things like divorce, losing custody of your children, or other repercussions. You may want to get these consequences in writing and work with a lawyer to make them legally binding If you are having a hard time dealing with your emotions because of your partner’s cheating, consider talking to a mental health professional by yourself to deal with these emotions.

Depression in Women- Be Aware No Beware!

Depression in Women- Be Aware No Beware!

Mood swings bother you and everyone around you!

Everyone experiences disappointment or sadness in life. When the "down" times last a long time or interfere with your ability to function, you may be suffering from a common medical illness called depression. According to research, women experience twice the rate of depression as men, regardless of race or ethnic background. An estimated 1 in 8 women will face major depression in their lifetimes. Despite high prevalence rates people are reluctant to acknowledge clinical depression as a disorder that should be evaluated and treated.

Researchers suspect that, rather than a single cause, many factors unique to women's lives play a role in developing depression. These factors include - genetic and biological, reproductive, hormonal, abuse and oppression, interpersonal and certain psychological and personality characteristics. However the stages in a woman's life can also subject her to depression- menstruation, pregnancy, child birth and menopause. Given below are some of the signs and symptoms that you may be experiencing related to your life stage.

Premenstrual Dysphonic Disorder - This affects around 3-8% of the women. In this behavioral changes are observed in women 5 days prior to the commencement of their menstrual cycle. The common symptoms are:

  • Lack of interest in common activities, such as hobbies

  • Moderate to severe feelings of tension or anxiety with low energy

  • Mood Swings , such as feeling overly sensitive

  • Moderate to severe feelings of hopelessness or depression, feeling overwhelmed

  • Physical symptoms, such as weight gain, joint or muscle pain, or a headache

  • Changes in sleeping patterns, such as sleeping too much or too little

  • Changes in eating habits or food cravings

  • Problems focusing or concentrating

  • Unusual irritability or anger

Management:  Be calm and relaxed. Keep a check and monitor your cycle and emotional outbursts. If you notice some continuity it's important that you consult a specialist. Ignoring the issues can have an effect on your relationships. Be open and talk to your family and your partner about the same.

Pregnancy and Post Partum Mood Disorders- Pregnancy is a stage in which a woman's body is going through a number of hormonal changes. These changes can have a major effect on the mood and can increase the risk of developing depression. Even post pregnancy the risk doesn't end. The following are a list of symptoms. Be informed if you are pregnant or have just delivered a child.

  • Lifestyle or work changes resulting in relationship problems

  • Episodes of depression and irritability

  • Feeling of lack of social support and lost feeling

  • Mixed feelings about being pregnant

  • Feeling that pregnancy has pulled you down

Please note that a woman can feel depressed during pregnancy and the feeling can become worse post child birth. It affects 10-25% of women in India. It's important to understand that it's not just you but your body that is going through change. Hormonal fluctuations, psychological pressures and social support all attribute to the same. Be open and consult specialists. Also talk to your family and your spouse.

Peri Menopause and Menopause Depression- Risk of depression may increase during the transition to menopause, a stage called Peri menopause, when hormone levels may fluctuate erratically. Depression risk also may rise during early menopause or after menopause - both times when estrogen levels are significantly reduced.

Women need to aware that they are vulnerable to develop depression and need professional help to avoid it from causing personal and functional impairment.

Be informed and consult a Psychiatrist if you are experiencing any of the above.

Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. I think one or two online counseling sessions and these therapies should help you. Please post a private question if you are interested to undergo these scientific methods. Take care.

You must visit a doctor and a counselor immediately. You are fortunate to function to some extent quite well currently. But I am doubtful if it will last long without medical intervention and extensive counseling. It is possible to arrest this development in the initial stages and stave off a serious condition. Also, because you are young and reaching out at this juncture itself, it is possible that the prognosis will be good. Take your parents along for information pertaining to your early childhood and some genetic history of the family. The combination of the two therapies will definitely help far better than just o one of them. In therapy you will learn a lot of coping mechanisms and techniques to remain functional and lead a close-to-normal life. You will also learn about emotions and how they can impact your condition adversely. Expressing emotions in an appropriate manner will equip you for life. Talking and sharing about the many disturbing thoughts and learning to understand yourself and moderate your responses will go a long way towards normalizing and training your mind. Exercise must be a regular part of your life for various reasons. Put yourself on a productive and strict schedule. An idle mind is the devil's workshop for sure.

I am 34 Male, suffering with extreme anger and over thinking on small things and avoid but sometimes it is exploring. Do I have any medicine for the same apart from meditations? Thank you,

M.Phill
Psychologist, Chennai
Medicines are not required for anger until it causes destruction to others/objects. In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything. Once you're calm, express your anger in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. Take a timeout. Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you. Consider seeking help from a psychologist if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.
