Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. 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. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

Your age is very low to talk of depression. You need to get out of this low feeling. Please try to imagine how would the person you lost would have liked to see you- definitely not in your present state. Try to be the person your lost one wanted you to be. That will be your inspiration and guidance to walk the right way. Best of luck.

You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Suicidal thought is indicative of severe depression, kindly consult a psychiatrist immediately. The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches General medical conditions and substances causing depression also needs to be ruled out. Consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

I am a regular marijuana smoker and I smoke about 3 pots a day. Can you tell me the consequences or the I'll effects?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. Other physical effects of marijuana include: Dizziness Shallow breathing Red eyes and dilated pupils Dry mouth Increased appetite Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.)

YOu can do meditaion and yoga for mind control and ahve good sleep pattern and in this age you need only less sleep Resting at night plays an important role in regulating your daily health and your level of energy throughout a day. Also, not only the quantity but the quality of sleep is also important for a healthy lifestyle. Bedtime habits do play a vital role in shaping up your lifestyle and personality as a whole. Here are many lifestyle habits that can help you to get sound sleep. 1. Make regular and a fixed sleep pattern: Going to sleep and waking up the same time every day helps to maintain an equilibrium in the sleep-wake cycle called diurnal rhythm. If this balance is maintained, then your body will be accustomed to this pattern and as a result, you will feel less tired and fresh throughout the day 2. Maintain a definite dietary regulation: You should also maintain a proper diet plan and observe the consequences/effects of the foods that you are eating and the fluids that you are drinking on your sleep pattern. Taking a good and properly nutritious diet on a daily basis will help you to stay healthy and help your natural sleep-wake cycle. 3. Ensure that your room has mild or dim lighting or darkness if you prefer: The level of light also matters at the time of your sleep. You should definitely make sure that there is a very minimal level of light or darkness around you when you try to sleep. This should be done because the lesser is the light, the more comfortable you are while sleeping. Additionally, the sleep that you will get in a dark room will also be sound and undistorted as it helps keep all the sensory organs calm. 4). Do some relaxing activities before bedtime: Depending on your choice, you should follow simple techniques of relaxation in order to calm down the brain before sleep. Like mediation, Yoga or- deep breathing exercise, muscle relaxing activity, visualizing a peaceful setting/ scenario like a calm garden or beach or mountain area. These activities are just guidelines and you can do anything that helps you to get a relaxing mood and sleep. 5). Avoid daytime naps if you can , But Having short naps of less than one hour is absolutely okay if you are excessively tired during the day or you did not have a sound sleep the previous night. But, if you are consistently having long naps during the day then you are bound to have sleep issues during the night. So it is advisable to sleep early and wake up early for a healthy schedule. 6) Regular exercise: Exercising regularly helps to improve the overall quality of sleep by making you tired at night and sending you to bed more efficiently. Light to mild exercises also helps cure sleep disorders like insomnia.

If she is suicidal also, she needs treatment without her co operation. You need to admit her forcibly in any licensed hospital to take care of un co operative patients. One of the magistrates will sign the request from psychiatrist or hospital. Two psychiatrists independently need to sign that she is mentally ill and needs treatment for her own safety or others safety. One can approach police or special ambulances for mentally ill (available at bangalore) to take her to hospital. Once she is diagnosed and treated, she will become co operative and she will be given psychoeducation of depression and its treatment.

Borderline Personality Disorder: All About It

B.A.(H)Psychology, M.A.Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist, Noida
Borderline Personality Disorder: All About It

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is such a disorder of personality that causes mood swings, self-esteem issues, impulsive behavior and recurrent self-harm behaviour. It is very difficult to lead a normal life with these varied psychological issues.

A patient suffering from BPD maintains unstable relationships with other people, shows inappropriate emotional reactions and possesses suicidal or self-harm tendencies. It is purely a personality disorder caused due to multiple factors. Patients suffering from BPD may find it difficult to stay alone.

Causes of BPD:

  1. Neglect and/or sexual abuse
  2. Some kind of childhood trauma like abandonment
  3. Loss of a dear one
  4. Neuro-chemical disturbance in the brain
  5. Genetic vulnerability
  6. Prolonged and chronic stress or anxiety

Symptoms of BPD:

  1. Disturbing thoughts: One may experience disturbed thinking and the range of severity is rather wide. One may question his or her existence and need constant reassurance to believe other, or hear voices that tell one to harm oneself or others. In some cases, hallucination and developing delusional beliefs become a common phenomenon that greatly upset the mental condition of the sufferer.
  2. Developing paranoid thoughts and having dissociative feelings: The patient often lacks the feeling of self and suffers from identity crisis. 4. Suicidal feelings and attempts.
  3. Intense but unstable relationships: Sufferers of BPD live in a fear of abandonment and feel that the people they love might leave them. They make all possible efforts to prevent being left alone. They may beg, cling and track their loved ones to avoid being left alone. The opposite may also occur and sufferers might feel that they are being smothered by others. This results in actively pushing away loved ones. A combination of these feelings leads sufferers to give out mixed signals which is confusing and often hurts them and their loved ones.
  4. Impulsive behavior: Indulging in impulsive behavior is a common sign of BPD. Those suffering from BPD may develop suicidal tendencies and threaten to self-harm. Partaking in risky and irresponsible behavior such as gambling, drinking, drug abuse, having unprotected sex with strangers, going on unrestrained shopping sprees and shoplifting are not uncommon for those with BPD.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

Hi Lybrate user If you want to build your self confidence then you have to focus on improving your own life for the better. Try to focus on stuffs you have done it may be big or small. Write down a list of all things you feel proud in your life, think of the things you have achieved. Set some small goal and try to achieve them it help you to prove your capability to yourself and you feel better. Need to understand and remind yourself that there will always be someone who is prettier, smarter and richer than you, just like there will always be someone who is less attractive, less intelligent and less wealthy than you. Believe in yourself and try to enjoy your life. Thanks.

I am suffering due to severe stress and feeling tired and irritated on everything.
Always do mention your age. Unless you describe the stress it is impossible to know what you are talking about. So I will just have to speculate: If it is people related, you will need to examine whether you are the cause or others the cause. If it has to do with workload, then you will need to discuss that with your colleagues first and if they think you are justified, then you will have to take it to the immediate boss. If it injustice in the work spot, you will need to discuss it with the HR department. If you are emotionally distraught, then there may be some work for you to do with a counselor. If you feel that you are doing more than you can manage or are qualified for, again you can consult the HR department. If you want a more specific answer, kindly be more specific and we can see how we can be of help.

Negative thinking is more to do with your state of mind. 1. Develop self-esteem and make friends with positive thinking people. 2. Every person is unique and nobody is perfect 3. Focus on your positive qualities and feel proud of your achievements 4 Don't keep doubting yourself. 5. Keep busy with your work and studies; maintain your schedule *Don’t keep grudge, anger and envy against any body. 6. Avoid fast food and eat healthy nutritious food. 7. Regular vigorous physical exercise is very important. With improved blood circulation, toxins will be eliminated from your body. You will become very energetic and your mind will become fresh as well as positive. 8. Exercise has a positive effect. It makes you feel better. It fights the stress by creating natural and constructive outlet for releasing negative thoughts and emotions such as anger. 9. Exercise boosts the production of feel good hormones or endorphins. 10. Maintain healthy habits and have adequate sleep 11 Keep helping others without any expectation and it gives immense satisfaction 12. If you still want some medicine, take homoeopathic medicine Alfalfa mother tincture 5 to 10 drops in half glass of water twice daily.

These are pubertal feelings which usually upsurge at your age, do not seek a companion for these reasons. A companion for sharing one's thought and feelings can be more fruitful. Respect others as you want them to respect you. Masturbation occasionally is alright but do not make it a compulsive habit. Better concentrate on developing your career and personality.

It appears that probably you have performance anxiety. If you are feeling stressed, then that means there is some reason but you are not able to understand what is causing this stress. Try to find out the source/trigger of your stress and then work on it. Each person in this world is different. You will not find a person who's ideas and thoughts will mactch with you 100%. But definitely you will have like minded people, you need to search for them. The people with whom you generally interact with may not be sharing your thoughts, ideas, and likes because of their different backgrounds and different life experiences. That is why you are finding it difficult to connect with them. There are many groups online also where you can find like minded people. About your anxiety about talking to people, do you worry about how they will perceive you? are you not confident about your social skills? if it is so, please practice the conversations when you are alone. Have realistic expectations from yourself. You also can take help of a counsellor who will help you in improving your social and interpersonal skills.
