To deal with the young children. It is important to observe the behaviour. To understand why your brother gets uneasy with loud noise. It can be understood while personal meeting.

Hi. I am 23 years old. I have OCD. But I don't get panic attacks. BP is normal. And I don't worry heavily. Sleep is normal. No alcohol, no smoking. Recently I got conjunctivitis. It reduced in a week. But I am observing that every time I eat a sweet, the symptoms of conjunctivitis again. I am afraid of having diabetes. If not ,then why does it happen? I walk almost 2 kms everyday, Perform deep breathing exercises and don't eat too much sweets. My weight reduced by 3 kg because of new environment, but increased by 5 kg when I adjusted to it.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly.

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 ends up in negative territory. Over thinking leads to obsession, self talking and laziness. 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. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

I m not sleep well feeling so much stress on me please suggest the any solution how to control pressure.
I don’t know if you are fully aware: you have mentioned that you are suffering from stress, which in itself can disturb your sleep. Instead of worrying too much about causes, why don’t you implement some of my suggestions, because they work effectively. The lack of sleep, i.e. sleep for less than 6 hours per night, is directly linked to about 86 diseases! So let us first focus on that. In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep.

Dear, Alcoholism is alcohol addiction. If you?re ready to stop drinking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from alcoholism and alcohol abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating alcoholism 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 alcoholism. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

Please see a psychiatrist/ counsellor in your city. Take care of your stress and eat healthy. Exercise regularly to keep your heart rate up. Meditate and do pranayama to increase oxygen intake which automatically reduces anxiety and stress. Do away with time wasting activities and incorporate things that will bring harmony and meaning into your living and life. Counselling helps a lot in dealing with stress and depression.

Early morning depression need not be clinical depression and could just be attitudinal problem and obsessive negative thinking. I need more details for diagnosis of the problem and treatment. You may post a detailed private querty to me (for a fee) and I shall provide you detail diagnosis and psychological treatment.

You need to determine the underlying causes for anxiety and develop awareness and skills to become more confident, less fearful and find your strengths which will help you to deal with problems more efficiently. You can go to a counselling psychologist in your city for this. I am from Bangalore and offer Skype sessions besides face to face interaction.

Mostly, people with psychosis need to be on the medication for lifelong. Since you have consulted a doctor, please follow his advice. You are seeing the difference with the medicines prescribed by him. Your cousin is feeling better because of the medication only. Please do not stop the medication without the doctor's advice. The doctor must have taken the complete medical and family history of your cousin and only after that must have prescribed the medicines. Have faith in him. If you doubt his knowledge or diagnosis, you can have second opinion. But it appears to me that, following the present doctors medication will be helpful, as it is showing positive results.

TOP 10 CAUSES FOR LOW SELF ESTEEM
Self esteem is how one judges oneself. This judgement is based on various parameters and also experiences from childhood. While a positive self esteem allows a person to form a realistic sense of self and their surroundings, low self esteem can cause a problem to harbour a negative and defeatist attitude about themselves and life in general. Below, are mentioned top 10 causes for poor self esteem:
1. CHILD ABUSE AND PUNISHMENT: if someone has undergone physical and emotional abuse as a child, then the implied message that the child gets about themselves is that they are bad and deserve to be punished. Most likely culprits are parents, relatives, neighbours, strangers and teachers. Every child requires love, attention, praise and affection while growing up so that they can develop a healthy sense of self. Parental ill treatment and negligence can make the child feel insecure, abandoned and mistrustful of people. This hampers with their ability to develop secure relationships as a child and as an adult. They could even develop anti social behaviours like aggressiveness, which could lead to low self esteem.
2. EXCESSIVE CRITICISM AND COMPARISONS: Parents tend to excessively criticise their children over trivial issues like mastering a task in young age and comparing with other children or siblings over studies, looks and behaviour. When a child is constantly reminded that he is no good, it results in the child feeling shame and inadequate in themselves. Such events create a feeling of worthlessness and pessimism and hesitancy to work towards positive thinking.
3. EXPECTATIONS: Some parents have unrealistic expectations from their children which may not be age appropriate or what the child wants to do. If a child is constantly reminded of this, then he gets the feelings of letting down his parents which bring on feelings of guilt. It usually happens with parents who have some unfulfilled dreams of their own. As an adult, such people will suffer from poor self esteem as they would constantly feel that they don't measure up to people's expectations of them.
4. PHYSICAL LOOKS: If a person thinks that their physical appearance is lesser in comparison to another person, then it could lead to feelings of poor self esteem. In a society which is driven by physical beauty, this is a very common cause for self esteem issues, especially for girls.
5. FINANCIAL AND SOCIAL POSITION: If a person is constantly comparing their financial and social position to people who are at a higher level, then it calls for poor sense of self. Feelings of inferiority and insignificance could get highlighted.
6. UNFULLFILLED DREAMS: When peoples dreams and desires remain unfulfilled despite hard work, they treat failure as an ultimate truth which results in poor self image.
7. UNEMPLOYMENT: Unemployment can make a person feel unsafe, insecure, helpless and worthless. Inability to provide for their family can be very daunting and lead to poor self esteem.
8. BETRAYAL: Betrayal in a romantic relationship and/or significant relationships can rob a person of his trust on themselves and make them think that there is something wrong with them.
9. ILL HEALTH: If a person has been suffering ill health/ disability for some time, it can rob them of self confidence to do tasks independently. If the quality of life is compromised or they are unable to maintain social relationships due to ill health, then it can become a reason for poor sense of self.
10. NEGATIVE EXPERIENCES: Negative experiences are a part of everyone's lives. If for some reason, a person goes through a string of such experiences like demotion, betrayal, unemployment, isolation, etc, the person starts thinking that something is wrong with them and they have done something to deserve it.

It is important to think positively and have a realistic image of self, others and situations. Counselling and Psychotherapy can help people immensely to overcome such experiences, re-parent themselves and work on their strengths and limitations and develop a healthy sense of self.

General Physician,
In a situation depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and medication are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived. You need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time?
