5 Ways To Manage Post Traumatic Stress Disorder!

5 Ways To Manage Post Traumatic Stress Disorder!

PTSD is a neurological disorder which affects individuals after experiencing severe traumatic situations. The individuals find it difficult to cope with such situations and often have flashbacks of those moments of trauma. Stress, as a result of the trauma wrecks the normal nervous functioning of the individuals. PTSD can have the following symptoms:

Re experiencing:

  1. Flashbacks of the traumatic event
  2. Nightmares, which are repetitive and severely distressing
  3. Images from the traumatic event intruding during the day
  4. Reminders of the event provoking distress

Avoidance or rumination:

  1. Those suffering from PTSD avoid being reminded of the trauma, such as people, situations or circumstances associated with the event. They try to suppress memories associated with the event.
  2. Many others ruminate excessively and prevent themselves from coming to terms with it.

Hyper arousal or emotional numbing:

  1. Hyper vigilance for threat
  2. Exaggerated sterile response
  3. Irritability
  4. Difficulty concentrating
  5. Sleep problems
  6. Difficulty experiencing emotion
  7. Emotional detachment from others
  8. Giving up activities which mattered before the trauma
  9. Amnesia for salient aspects of the trauma

How to manage PTSD?

The following tips will help to come to terms with your traumatic episode and ease stress:

  1. If symptoms are mild, then observing the patient is preferred
  2. If symptoms are chronic, then trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) proves to be beneficial
  3. Alternative treatments include eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
  4. Comorbid symptoms such as depression, general anxiety and alcohol or substance abuse are secondary to PTSD. PTSD should be treated first and then the associated symptoms should be addressed.
  5. Mindfulness meditation (not a treatment option) helps in recognizing cognitive dissonances and affected thought patterns and aids in recognizing and overcoming their influence.

Dear Anurag, Welcome to lybrate. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Relax yourself. Do not keep worrying about your studies. Stay calm and follow the tips given below you'll definetly start enjoying your studies. Teach what you have learned to someone else. Take regular study breaks after 40-45 mins. Music can also help elevate your mood and motivate to study longer. Make your study space portable. Practice. Practice.

Kindly consult a developmental pediatrician as soon as possible. It is not possible to give a proper diagnosis unless the child has been thoroughly evaluated. Please do not waste time and consult a doctor immediately. What ever the problem may be, it can be taken care of, only if the diagnosis is right.

Hi I want to discuss this issue with real seriousness that my friend Rene has been suffering for quite a long, long time. It's actually very agonizing when you notice you are different from the others and yet you have to deal with it as you have been suggested by your elders that it will be okay when you are 18. But that okay never happened. Being his childhood friend, he shared everything with me and so I came to know that he has been suffering from micropenis syndrome all throughout his life. His hormonal changes were bit late too. His voice started breaking at 15 years while he started growing beard at late 17. Most importantly his penis never grew after 8 years or nine years. Is there any treatment for this type of medical problems. Now he is 19 and doing engineering and I feel it's high time to see a doctor. I would be highly grateful if you could provide with me some informations regarding this because its really a grave situation for me and my friend. Every one at his age is having girlfriends and he is scared of getting into any type of relationships. Sometimes a person need someone more than a friend but he is too scared and embarrassed with his own self. He have been bullied quite a lot in school. Recently it's hitting him really bad. He feels depressed whenever we, our friends start talking about our lives, our future. It's really hard for him to swim through the awkwardness of his own life. Please look into the matter. I would highly appreciate your views.

Dear lybrate user, thank you for the detailed information. I really appreciate the love and care you have for your friend. I think you both are unnecessarily worried. His voice started breaking at 15 and he started growing beard at the age of 17 - then it is perfectly normal. Some people have early physical changes - at the age of 12 -13 some have late at 16 - 17. His growth will depend on his genes. Do not compare him with you or any of your friends. If at all, look into his family history - enquire about his father, uncles, brothers - at what age did they started showing physical signs of sexual maturity and then you will understand that, probably they all have matured at the same age. And now at the age of 19, if his voice and beard is like any other boy, there is nothing to worry about. Now regarding the micropenis syndrome - you both need to understand that men have penis in different sizes (like women have breasts in different sizes) and you need not worry so much about his small size. Penis size increases automatically on sexual arousal. I will strongly recommend you both to see a sexologist. You both need more sex education which will include human anatomy. Please do not feel shy and please consult a renowned sexologist, who will give you more knowledge about your bodies and sex. Worrying about it all the time, will damage your friend's self confidence. You both consult a sexologist so that you both can gain more knowledge and support each other. All the best.

Depression can happen to anyone  and does happen to one in four of us over our lifetimes.  Different factors that make it more likely to happen include biological make up, upbringing, or reactions to life events. What keeps it going though is how we deal with those things. The way we think and what we do affects the way we feel. Thinking differently: * STOP take a pause, do relaxation breathing. And ask yourself. What I am racing to- is it fact or opinion? Or is it a negative thinking? * Do something different to divert mind from these thoughts * learn Mindfulness activity and breathing * Self hypnosis helps to reinforce positive thoughts and positive self image * Use positive self talk * Engage in a hobby. Most importantly even when one is depressed he is not always experiencing depression. No two moments are same. Look closely. Each moment is new. Focus and enhance happy peaceful moments. Mindfulness breathing helps to break the depressive cycle of thoughts by bringing our attention to current moment.
