Hi, you may have low frustration tolerance, you will need to develop that, or impatient personality, exaggerating issues. I think psychotherapy is best suitable for you. Pen down your negative thoughts and discuss with a psychologist. Exercise daily for an hour. Only after discussing in detail we narrow down the areas that have to be focused on.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. 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. Take care.

Dear lybrate user, I think, for reasons best known to you only, you are scared of getting infected with hiv. It appears to me that it is disturbing you a lot. I think, firstly, give your blood sample in the pathology lab and get yourself checked for hiv. If you are not infected, then you can be at peace. If you are infected with hiv, then you will need to consult a doctor, who will help you to manage your life. Secondly, please consult a counsellor, irrespective of the outcome of your blood test. There is something, which is bothering your mind, which you need to understand. The consellor will help you to do that. Take care.

Being in a medical field you know that how your mind and body are connected. And how your thoughts are affecting your actions. One thing is for sure that you are very intelligent and committed person. You also sound very sincere as well as sensitive. I have worked wit medical students for almost a decade. Please try fee things I am mentioning below. When our mind is hooked into past it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Let me. Know if you need any further help. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Anxiety is the biggest enemy of concetration, when some one is stressed about a exam then till a certain level it is good but if the stress goes beyoned a particular point your performance will come down so the key is to keep yourself in optimal stress so that you can perform better, if the anxiety is too much then you need to take help for it.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Dear s user, thank you for writing to lybrate. I understand your concern about treatment of your wife. Elevated mood, grandiosity (claiming power, wealth, supreme identity, knowledge), diminished need for sleep, excessive talking or pressured speech, racing thoughts or flight of ideas in mind, clear evidence of distractibility, increased level of goal-focused activity at home, excessive pleasurable activities or spending too much often with painful consequences all are symptoms of manic episode of bipolar mood disorder, severe with psychotic symptoms. I suggest you to consult a psychiatrist who has indoor treatment facility. She requires hospitalization and indoor management. When patients with severe mania with psychotic symptoms are brought to my hospital, I hospitalize them. I give them medications like lithium carbonate, olanzapine and lorazepam. With availability of latest brief pulse and ultra brief pulse ect devices, electroconvulsive therapy (ect) is a safe and effective biological treatment which improves mania rapidly. I also recommend ect for her. She will definitely improve with treatment. I recommend treatment earliest. Warm regards.

Actually last year mera meri girlfriend se breakup ho gaya tha, jiske sath mera 6mnths ka relation tha. Or jiske liye mai khud ko responsible maanta hun.

Mai roz guilt mein survive kar raha hu or apne aap ko jimmendar manta hu. Uski baatein roz mere mind mein 24hrs ghumti rehti hai or uske saath spend kia hua time bhi. Mai bhi usko pyar karta tha Or mai janta hun voh meri life mein ab kbhi vapas nhi aayegi and I really miss her. Mera daily suicide karne ka mann karta hai. Aisa lagta hai jaise meri life ek curse hai. Or ha mujhe OCD bhi hai, but mujhe nahi lagta sab iski vajah se hai. I really don't knw what to do. Meri mind ki koi concentration nahi hai. Mai daily stress mein rehta hu. If you can help me toh plss help me ki wht I have to do really ki mai apni life phirr se khushi se jee saku. Aur apna mind iss cheez se divert karke apni professional life mein kuch kar saku.

You seem to have realised that you have made some mistakes in the past but being harsh and judgemental of yourself is only going to harm you rather than help you in any way. Be gentle with yourself and tell yourself that whatever you did and said was unintentional and you never meant her any harm. You did what you have seen others doing. But now you know better than before and are willing to behave more amiably and respectful of the other person. Thus freeing yourself from that guilt, and looking forward to life and meeting more girls to be friends with and learn about them and yourself will be your learning curve. However you need to treat ocd with medication and counselling to keep it under check. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, Please do not try to escape from the situation. Accept that your mother has some problem and that is why she fights wilh the family. Please understand that she is also not comfortable talking bad about you or fighting with your father and brother. Once you accept these, you will find ways of dealing with the problem of your mother. 1. You may take her to a psychiatrist 2. You may talk openly to her brothers and sisters and get their co operation in treating her 3. If she refuses to come to psychiatrist, you go to psychiatrist and request her to come along to complain about your behavior. 4. You can approach a local women's helpline or family counselling center. 5. Anything else you can think of.
