These are examples of normal fear becoming abnormal due to the neglect of fear itself. Fear is good and is extremely useful to exercise caution where necessary. Somewhere and somehow you have been denying the fear and it has over a period of time developed into phobia. It is also possible that in childhood you may have had some traumatic experience and that has led to this abnormal response to fear today. Meet with a counselor and deal with your emotions to deal with the underlying causes. In the meantime you can learn to de-condition yourself off of the phobia by frequenting these places with a therapist and gradually working out through the experience the various reactions that you will go through. Over time you will find that your phobia is unfounded and learn to develop normal responses to these situations. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the phobia with a calmer disposition. This will give you an undue advantage over the phobia to perhaps bring it into the normal realm of fear. That, you can then tackle with aplomb.

No. Any problem if it goes without treatment will never go off on own. E. G. If you have high fever and keep hoping it will go on its own. It will not. Any illness should not be ignored but treated. You are very young and deep depression you talk of - is curable fast - at your age with right diagnosis and treatment. First get psychological testing from a qualified and trained psychologist- a specialist for diagnosis of mental illness and providing counselling and psychotherapy- treatment without medicines. Based on report get recommended treatment from psychologist - if your depression like symptoms have psychological basis or take medicines from psychiatrist if it is an illness to be treated.

When you sit down to study. Keep a target. That you should finish this much in this time. And don't get up before you finish it. Studying with a friend helps. Also put your leg in a bucket of cold water when you study. That helps in keeping you awake.

How to overcome from thinking about persons who insulted us and to focus on studies?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You need to learn the art of detachment from what people say and do around you. Obviously, these were hurtful insults and may take some time deleting it our of your immediate memory. You could exorcise the emotions around it if you expressed them appropriately to another person, perhaps several times. If you are vulnerable, emotional, and have weak ego boundaries, detachment will be a little difficult. In which case I suggest you meet with a counselor and seek some help. The most potent way is to look at the truth of the insults and allow them to hurt you only if they are facts and not fictional: you are in charge of letting anything hurt you or not, anyway! if it is true you have some work to do rectifying the same. Otherwise, just ignore them.

My brother 32 years old, drinks more alcohol & smoking a lot of cigarettes. How I can control him to avoid these? please suggest me?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You cannot control him. He must want to leave these habits, ideally. You can however sped a lot of time convincing him that his habit will ruin him and shorten life, which he so much enjoys unfortunately by using chemical means. The more information (without hyping it up) you learn and share with him, the better the chances of him wanting to quit. Ideally he must want to stop these habits. Otherwise it will become a futile exercise. If these habits have become too much then you will need to admit him into a center for rehabilitation. He will need to be there for at least 6 months and they will do detoxification and treatment for the addictive nature followed by extensive counseling. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i. E. He will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i. E. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the family’s consent.

Hi, my age is 26, I am running a business, I am a chain smoker minimum 15 to 20 cigarette a day from past 4 years due to business tension. Now I want to quit the smoking, how can I quit my smoking habit and how can I clean my lungs which cause damage due to smoking from past 4 years? Is there any treatment? I heard there is treatment of cleaning lungs, so please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must simultaneously treat yourself for the tension.You must quit your smoking completely and you must do it now, seriously. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

I am suffering from brain fog since a long time. I have tried meditation but it helps only for a few minutes to hours. It starts at around 9-10 am, gradually increases and reaches its peak between 1 and 3. The fog starts to fade at around 5 pm. During this time time when brain fog attacks I can't concentrate or focus. I find as if I have a headband which is affecting my thought process. I have become disinterested in everything. I have lost sense of urgency. I am demotivated as I struggle to make it through the day. I know I am operating below part but don't know how to beat this. I am also suffering from fatigue, I get tired easily and am underweight even at the age of 40.

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. Have you been under some medications off late? Again, have you consulted a neuro physician anytime, in this regard? If not, I would advise that its high time you consult one without any further delay. Simultaneously, have a healthy and balanced diet preferably Mediterranean and have an active lifestyle. Stay well hydrated, exercise daily (walking being the safest) for at least 30 minutes, de-stress and relax on a daily basis. Its important to stay psychosocially active too. I can advise suitable natural medicines in particular, that can help improve clinical outcomes, once you connect with all details including the diagnostics etc all. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best. Sincerely

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

Sir I am a male 15 years old , how to strengthen our mind to overcome exams and stress.
Strengthening mind and dealing with stress is a process. There is no formula as to strengthen mind and drive away stress. Stress is omnipresent, and you have to acknowledge its presence, learn ways to use it to your benefits and deal with it effectively by training your mind almost everyday. One such effective way is by learning the relaxation response. You can start by practicing ways of relaxation like deep breathing exercises, yoga, mediation etc. Consult a stress management expert or a psychiatrist in your vicinity personally.
