Dear doctor
Is chronic anxiety the next stage of stress? Is the anxiety very stressful?
Dear lybrate user anxiety can be reaction to stress. It's natural to feel anxious when we are in stressful situation. Our body has capacity to deal with challenging situations like stress. But when we feel that we have used all pur resources to fight with it then our body start developing symptoms like tension, worry, anxiety, depression etc. So it's important to keep ourselves mentally healthy too. Our brain too need good mentally healthy diet. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect" not only human including pets.. Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help in person or audio/video. Please give us feedback after trying for weekdays.

Use the statement 'I don't' as opposed to 'I can't' A recent study revealed that it is more psychologically empowering to believe and state that YOU DONT do something as opposed to believing and stating that YOU CANT do said thing / consume said meal.

My sister 51 years suffering from an acute situation. Few months back she was identified with esophageal varices and beginning of ulcer. Doctor told me that the cause of the ulcer is coming from her head and it is nothing but her tensions. She is a primary school teacher and got transferred to a new school. What she says that she cannot adjust with the new environment, teaching in english medium, students are not obeying her, cannot take class, cannot value papers, cannot prepare food, cannot dress up properly. Now she is saying that she cannot even prepare rice or tea. E feel a special appearance, do not eat well, getting worser every day. Every time crying without tears. Spent hours in kitchen and come back without doing anything. Our elder sister died due to ovarian cancer 1 years back. Her husband and 3 sons are so frustrated and saying her that go and commit suicide if she cannot do anything. She has his own convictions and when we ask her to consult a doctor she says doctors cannot do anything. They cannot cure. Now she is afraid of doing anything and simply spending time and complaining that she cannot do anything. How can we diagnose the situation.

Your sister has been undergoing stress disorder which if not checked earlier would lead to psychiatric conditions like anxiety neurosis, depression etc., The first thing I would like to suggest is to withdraw from her job role for a particular period of time. Medical leave for a month or two will be enough. This will give her a relaxation from the overwhelming fear/tension/stress. The second thing is to take her to a psychological counselor who can teach her some relaxation techniques and use some couseling techniques to gradually reduce her irrational fears and other psychological issues and adjustment problems. The most impartant part is that her husband and children are in need of counselling in order to give her emotional support to overcome her problems soon. Find a psychological counsellor asap. Certainly there is a way out.

How important is to stop smoking? How much alcohol can someone over 50 safely drink, and does your tolerance change with ageing?

Dear, welcome to lybrate-user. 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. There is no safe limit of alcohol consumption. Even a drop can be fatal for liver. Quit alcohol. I suggest you to consult a psychologist or de addiction therapist. Take care.

My age is 20 i`m smoke 7-10 cigarette in day nothing problem in my lungs chest throat and I am start smoking since 3 year so you tell me I am fit what can I do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You just need to quit smoking because it is harmful even when you smoke one cigarette. Just because you do not have a problem as yet, it does not mean that smoking is alright. You are obviously functioning on a reactive mode i.e. you will stop only when you have a problem. At that time it will become too late and you may have a permanent problem and will be stuck with it for the rest of your life. Be proactive: anyway, if something is not good for you why do it in the first place? Just quit is my best advice​.

There is no any reason to worry as HIV test results are negative. Are you married? Did you have sex relations with any woman other than your wife? If no then never go again for HIV test. Now don't think much about this. Forget the past & try to enjoy the present. There are lot many reasons & things to live life. Practise physical exercise regularly. Try to be engaged in your routine work. Spend much time in your hobbies. Always think in positive manner. Life is a most beautiful thing like a gift. Do not spoil it by thinking in wrong way. All the best.

Depression - How To Manage It?

M.Sc - Psychological Counseling, B.A ( Hons) - Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi
Depression - How To Manage It?

Depression, a psychological condition marked by sadness, lethargy, exhaustion, helplessness and hopelessness can develop among men and women of any age, at any point in their lifetime. It is difficult to pinpont the exact cause of depression, however, financial setback, failure in a relationship, academic under-performance, vocational under-achievement and several other socio-economic stressors of this sort are known to cause Depression how we know it in current times. 

Prolonged and untreated Depression can compromise the depressed individual's immunity making them vulnerable to several other health problems. Therefore, one must make efforts to get out of a depressed mode as soon as possible. While dealing with feelings of sadness it is important to accept one's condition, identify the reasons behind those feelings and try as much as possible to come out of it using one's own efforts. In order to recognise your stressors and work your way around those you must- 

Sleep well: While you are resting through various stages of sleep your body is getting ready to take on more life for when you wake up and get going. A good night's sleep rejuvinates the body and repairs the day-to-day wear-and-tear that the body undergoes. Not getting enough rest on the other hand can lead to many health problems, further worsening a depressed person's condition. Therefore, sleeping is important. If needed, you must force yourself to sleep. 

Eat well: A depressed person might binge eat and/or over eat or avoid food altogether. Many clinically depressed people report indulging themselves in foods like chips, chocolates and such other high-calorie foods. Such an eating pattern will lead to weight gain and predispose one to obesity and obesity-related health problems. Alternately, if one lacks the desire to eat anything, then, this too can lead to adverse effects as the body's nutritional balance gets disturbed. So, make an effort to keep your body nourished at all times. 

Exercise: Regular exercise is very useful in that it acts as a diversion from stressful or negative thoughts and also helps in keeping the body active. In case you do not like to exercise, you can opt for jogging or running. Even a simple walk out in the open can be beneficial. Going out, inhaling fresh air, connecting with the nature can all help shift focus onto the positive aspects of life and enhance the quality of your thoughts. Small windows of positive thoughts in one's daily life can do wonders for anyone. 

Keep yourself engaged: Engaging in activities that one doesn't do every day can distract your mind and also make you creative as well as productive. Such activities might include gardening, painting, cooking, riding a bicycle and the likes. While engaging in such activities can keep you busy, keeping your mind off from wandering to catastrophic thoughts you might even discover some of your hidden talents in the process. 

Trust in your abilities: No one is perfect and many times one's social, economic and/or physical conditions are not contributing favorably in achieving one's ambitions and desires. In such conditions it is important to focus over what one is capable of doing and making earnest efforts at making the best out of one's situation. Sooner or later change will occur. These are some of the ways you can use to fight away depression. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.

At present, all your focus is required by your career. When by putting all efforts, you become successful, confidence level will automatically rise. Where is the time to feel lonely? You have to give your 100% to your job. Have only one single goal and work to achieve it. I guarantee success if you guarantee whole -hearted effort. Any other problem, you may take appointment.

Hello Doctor, I am facing some psychological issues for a long time now and I am unable to overcome it, I need some professional advice. Tall women, I like them and feel more attracted towards them. But, I feel intimidated when they around me at work, in public transport or any event and also in family and friends. It doesn't matter if I know them or not my confidence and self esteem are always low around them. I couldn't think straight when they are around and couldn't able to make eye contact while having a conversation with them. It affects my communication skills a lot as well as my productivity. I have tried not to let these things affect me but there's no improvement. Also I tend to compare myself with them and then I self-pity my self and blame god, society, my family, ultimately feel distressed. I am short you must have assessed it by now. Sometimes I feel women don't find me attractive because I am short or anyone who is short in today's generation. While Growing up we all must have heard that "Women like tall men or they find tall men attractive and they would like to settle down with a tall man" Growing up I thought and treated these sayings as a cliché but now I think this cliche has become a fact for me. Whenever I have interacted with a girl, they always put me in their friend circle or see me as their brother. I don't hit on every girl I see, I am not a pervert. Yeah I have liked few girls, but they didn't feel the same about me when I told them about my feelings and I am totally cool with it, I have no hard feelings for them. But the aftermath is, this made me feel like that I am not good enough. SO COULD YOU PLEASE OFFER SOME ADVICE ON HOW I COULD LIVE EFFICIENTLY WITHOUT LETTING THESE THINGS AFFECT ME. THANK YOU.

Many couples make strange bedfellows. In other words, not all attractions are suitable according to appearances and yours will also likely be the same. There is a 'chemistry' as they say, or there is something that clicks when you find your true mate, to some extent. Tall, dark, ahndso0me men are a hard to come by, but the personality of an individual is dependent on five areas: physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual fitness. How you carry yourself is more important than your height and shape and size. Then the most important feature to find in someone is their character. By now you must have assessed that these are things that you can develop. You need to develop good and admirable character judged by your value system. Your physical fitness is primed by regular exercise and diet. You may, in addition, attend a personality development course, good conversation course, public speaking course, and a self-grooming course to really project yourself as a suitable and desirable candidate. Above all, you must be happy with yourself first. You may be falsely seeking tall girls as a projection of your need to be tall. So develop your overall personality and you will see girls flocking to be your​ friend!
