Hi, I am 25 years, I have negative thinking in my life and my heart beating seeing any thinking like fighting peoples on street and vibration of body etc from years.

Dear, negative thinking and the given heart beat symptoms are due to your anxiety and probable stress disorder. 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 your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Hyderabad
Can you tell me the actual drug name in Wilpose is it Lorazepam. Then you are taking both nexito plus clonazepam and lorazepam. I think you need to slowly reduce the wilpose and stop and then be only on nexito rather than nexito plus. It looks like you are getting addicted to wilpose if it is lorazepam otherwise it is ok

I think I have an anxiety disorder because when ever I interact with person in person my heart beats fasts and some kind of sensation in my whole body occur, I want to get rid of it how can i, pls help.

MD Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mohali
Dear Ms. lybrate-user, Feeling anxious, developing palpitations, and not feeling comfortable while talking to someone or in social situations is suggestive of social anxiety disorder. However, more details would be required in order to reach a definitive diagnosis. You should consider seeking a psychiatric consultation and get yourself completely evaluated. Social anxiety disorder is a treatable disorder and treatment with medications and cognitive behaviour therapy will help you get better. Best wishes.

I am a smoker but last 3day i'll stop smoking but it painful than what should I do.

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Dear lybrate-user, congratulations for stopping smoking on your own, if you r motivated to stop it then half battle is won. You will need support of nicotine replacement therapy for few days, you can try various chewing gums or lozenges available at medical stores. If you still have cravings and restlessness consult a psychiatrist for anticraving medications. Drink plenty of water and keep eating something frequently this will help decrease cravings. All the best.

I'm 14 year old boy. I'm getting too tensed. And behaving aggressively with all. I'm totally confused why I'm doing this.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Feeling tension, is a common complaint and often without any reason people get tensed. Proper mind control by doing mediation is a very useful method and have to follow many steps as described here To be a safe and predictable person for those around you at work and at home, it is essential that you are able to maintain your composure when you feel like your 'buttons' are being pushed. This strength will help you to achieve your goals in business as well as your goals for your personal relationships. 1. Share negative emotions only in person or on the phone. E-mails, answering machine messages, and notes are too impersonal for the delicate nature of negative words. What feels like a bomb on paper may feel like a feather when delivered in person. 2. Pepper your responses with the phrase, "I understand" This phrase will support your goals when the tension is high and you need to find common ground to form compromises or agreements with the other party. 3. Take notice when you feel threatened by what someone is saying to you. Resist the temptation to defend yourself or to "shut down" the other person's communication. It will take this kind of discipline to become an open, trusting communicator. 4. Practice making requests of others when you are angry. It is often much more useful to make a request than to share your anger. For example, if the babysitter is driving you crazy by leaving dirty dishes in the sink, it is better to make a request of them than to let your anger leak out in other ways such as by becoming more distant. 5. Try repeating the exact words that someone is saying to you when they are in a lot of emotional pain or when you disagree with them completely. This mirroring technique can keep both the speaker and the listener 'can notered' in a difficult conversation, especially when the attitude of the person doing the mirroring is to gain understanding of a different point of view. 6. Take responsibility for your feelings to avoid blaming others. Notice when 'blame shifting' begins to leak into your speech. "I feel angry when you are twenty minutes late and you don't call me" is much better than, "You make me so mad by being late. 7. Learn to listen to the two sides of the conflict that you are in as if you were the mediator or the counsellor. If you can listen and respond in this way you will bring peace and solutions to the conflict more quickly. For example, in response to an employee's raise request, you might say, "On the one hand I understand that you really need the raise, and on the other hand I represent the company, whose funds are very scarce at this time. Is there a way that I can work on your compensation package that does not involve cash? Here, the mediator's point of view can look for the creative compromise that takes into account the limits and the needs of both parties. 8. Take a playful attitude towards developing the skill of emotional self-control in high conflict situations. You could view maintaining self-control in a tense, angry conversation as an athletic feat. You could also view developing this skill as similar to working out at the gym with weights - the more that you use your self-control muscle the bigger it will grow and the easier it will be to remain calm when tension is great. 9. Wait a few days to cool down emotionally when a situation makes you feel wild with intense feelings, such as rage. As time passes, you will be able to be more objective about the issues and to sort out the truth about the situation more clearly. 10. Make a decision to speak with decorum whenever you are angry or frustrated. If you give yourself permission to blow up, people will not feel safe around you. They will feel that you are not predictable and will carry 'shields' when they are near you. The fear and walls of others will not support your goals for success in relationships or at work.

Dear , at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, need to check your memory using memory test.

I am suffering from marital discord and my wife hardly communicates when my parents are around. She leaves home at her own will. I am not finding any source of happiness in my marriage of 5 years.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is a long-standing factor, repeated and confirmed as very critical to sustain a marriage: communication. When there is no communication, there is danger that the union will collapse. You must immediately reach out to a marriage counselor and both of you must attend the sessions. If she is unwilling, you at least go and seek help as to how to make something happen from your side. Ideally, it would best for both to attend, but she may not cooperate like you have indicated. Sometimes you have to take matters in your own hands to do the right things. Passivity under these circumstances is criminal. Be firm but with love. Even when she does not talk, you can initiate conversations in subtle ways, skirting controversial issues and gradually improving and increasing non-threatening dialogues. For example, ignore the non-communication during your parents? visits but as soon as they are gone and she is open to some talking, discuss matters of the house, children, her work or yours, old friends etc. There are so many topics that are easy for conversing about. Your parents, don? t forget, are her in-laws. There is a host of problems between mother-in-law and daughter-in-law universally, that it is referred to as a syndrome. If you discus controversies with her, you will be pressing the wrong buttons. Don? t even bother about your parents being respected, if you want to save your marriage. In fact, you can tell them not to visit for some time until something positive happens between you two. You must be ingenious without it being obvious. If you play the cards right, you can make conducive communication happen in your marriage as though you had never had a problem at all!

Suicidal thoughts is a dangerous thought. In that case it is better to attend psychological counselling sessions. May be you are suffering from depressive thoughts. It is better to take the help of psychologist. Develop busy schedule. Do not keep secrets inside. It is better to share your personal feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. Do not maintain aloneness. It is very dangerous thing for you. Concentrate on your study plan. Develop good goal on your future aspects. Better to maintain friendliness all others. Be optimistic all the time. Develop positive on life situations. Read inspirational books. Better to engage with others most of the time. When negative thought comes divert the thought in to other aspects. Do not think too much about past things and events. When thought comes do other work. Do not maintain all the time one place. Move the place time to time. Be busy all the time. Share your feelings to every one. Be enjoy all the time. Be sociable all the time and be happy. Ok all the best.

Hi Ms. Lybrate-user, you are going through a tough time indeed. However, first and foremost you need to de-stress yourself and relax so that you can think well and act prudently on the steps next. I would advise you to remain mentally strong as you already are, believe in yourself, and have faith and hope that there always is light at the end of the tunnel, however dark the tunnel may appear to be at present. Practicing mindfulness meditation can also help you relax, de-stress and keep you focused even during these tough times. You may have a flight of disturbing thoughts initially but slowly you will get to do better and be able to control your mind/ thought pattern well. A trip to some hill station or some scenic natural place can possibly help you relax, rejuvenate, think clearly and have a fresh perspective. Simultaneously, do keep up your dietary habits, lifestyle & hobbies and try enjoying every moment of your life irrespective. Its indeed important that you stay psycho-socially active too. Should you still have issues keeping calm and focus, you can always seek help from a psychologist who can clinically evaluate and put you on anxiolytics suitably, should it require so. Hope this helps. Do take care, and all the very best.

I have gone through break up 8 months ago. And I am mentally very upset. I am very much upset. What should I do to get normal again.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I guess by upset you mean depressed. But for 8 months if you so upset then this relationship must have meant a lot to you. Breaking up is not easy, especially if the relationship lasted for a long time. But you will need to accept the reality and move on. This fixation on her must die out eventually. You must first exorcise her out of your mind. You can either do that by talking her out of your emotions first to a counselor and then starting on a new relationship by completely walking away from the past. You must express your bitterness and all the fond memories with the intention of purging her out the system. The professional will expertly guide you through the motion of exhaustively clearing away all memories along with the emotions so that you will be free of the ghosts of the past and are able to venture into new relationships. Once you have done that the memories will gradually fade away but the huge advantage you will have is that the emotions attached to those memories will be minus the energy of the feelings and they will become impotent. In the meantime I hope you have cleared your belongings and surroundings of all memories of this person; and also that you do not haunt the places and situations you used to visit. If she has ditched you, you must learn to forgive her for your own sake and live a life free of her eventually in the mind and then in the heart. She is now history, and has probably happily moved on. You need to be thankful that you were not betrothed to her when she dumped you: that would have been worse. And you need to learn not to give yourself to someone so much if the time was not ripe or suitable to do so. Now you should pitch yourself into a new relationship but do not focus too much into the serious end of the outcome but on the moment-to-moment development to see how it all unfolds to really enjoy that person. If you continue to cling on to her memories even after that, you may have some attachment problems too to explore with the counselor. To get out of the depression you must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, and wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, eat more of proteins and vegetables, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch a lot of sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. I hope you can find someone to love and be loved soon. Whatever happens please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three things, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. If you are still not relieved from the depression, then go first to a counselor.

Hi lybrate-user! Actually not only you at least 40% of individuals experience the same problem no matter boy or girl. Your age also matters you are just 18 right. I do not know whether you have gone to movies with your family or only now you are going. Okay nothing to worry, you need to actually watch pleasant movies not aggressive or violent ones, bcoz only unpleasant thoughts more to you. You have a soft heart and that is the reason of this problem. After one action or job is over you have to switch over to next. No problem if only you can control your mind everything is going to be okay. You need to attend yoga or meditation classes. If you need to consult me you can. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, we all feel little stressed and sad when we are unable to clear interview we had hopes from, but feeling depressed due to not being able to clear one interview is something you should think about. You are young and there are ample of opportunities for you this was not your life's last interview. So be motivated and keep working towards your bright future. I have confidence you will crack the next one. Yes, if there are few things that you feel you lack while giving interview like confidence, be anxious.

I want to stop smoking. How it is possible? Please suggest me I don't want to smoke.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear user. I can understand. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Smoking can affect your mouth, throat, lungs, heart, stomach and brain in many ways. Cancer is one among the potential diseases smoking can cause. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. Nicotine chewing gums too help as an alternative for cigarettes. But still you will need will power. You may consult a physician or deaddiction therapist or a rehabilitation facility for further advice. You can also opt for online deaddiction therapy. Take care.

You are not able to remember because you are experiencing stress and anxiety about forgetting. More tense you are more you forget. You need to d-stress by relaxation training from psychologist or pracitice all that you see on astha channel from 5_7. 30 am daily. This will be excellent for physical and mental health.
