You are turning into an emotional wreck at the rate you are letting the situation at home affect you. I do not envy you and neither do I think you can be completely immune to the events at home. But for your own sanity and wellbeing, you must take life into your own hands and make it a success. Quickly get yourself organized: schedule your day from morning to evening with studies, socializing, entertaining yourself, exercising, sleeping well, eating healthily, and praying. If I am not wrong, you may not have had therapy in parallel with medication. If so, that would have been the reason for the failure of this approach. You must support the medication with some talk therapy and develop some skills around how to handle yourself with the family situation to your advantage. Your life, your mental wellbeing, and your development are in your hands. If you live blaming the circumstances for your condition, you will fight a losing battle. I recommend you read a book by Scott M Peck entitled, The Road Less Travelled. It will guide you to live wonderfully, with values, and with love. Spend time with friends and perhaps go out of the house too, so that you are disconnected from all the happenings around your home. Ideally, I would love for you to face these circumstances and learn to change your response. You can?t change them, but you surely can learn how to adapt without getting too perturbed by them. In fact you can learn to even enjoy yourself, because of their antics! I would love to know how you did. So keep me posted.

Weight gain after quitting smoking does not increase the risk of heart disease

In a study published in Journal of American Association, researchers from Switzerland have shown that in non?diabetics, weight gain after quitting smoking does not take away the cardiovascular benefits of quitting smoking.

There is a net cardiovascular benefit of smoking cessation despite subsequent weight gain. Smoking cessation is always beneficial for smokers.

People gain 6 to 8 pounds of weight after quitting smoking. In the study, quitting smoking was also linked with a decreased risk of heart attack or cardiac death compared to smokers.

Quick tips to manage anger-outbursts

Quick tips to manage anger-outbursts

Excessive anger and irritability are among the most common of health problems. These problems can damage marriages, school careers, work, and friendships. Fortunately, excessive anger can almost always be improved by at least 80% with expert treatment. There are many techniques that can help you cool down and keep your anger in check.

  • Focus on the physical sensations of anger. While it may seem counterintuitive, tuning into the way your body feels when you’re angry often lessens the emotional intensity of your anger.
  • Take some deep breaths. Deep, slow breathing helps counteract rising tension. The key is to breathe deeply from the abdomen, getting as much fresh air as possible into your lungs.
  • Exercise. A brisk walk around the block is a great idea. It releases pent-up energy so you can approach the situation with a cooler head.
  • Use your senses. Take advantage of the relaxing power of your sense of sight, smell, hearing, touch, and taste. You might try listening to music or picturing yourself in a favorite place.
  • Stretch or massage areas of tension. Roll your shoulders if you are tensing them, for example, or gently massage your neck and scalp.
  • Slowly count to ten. Focus on the counting to let your rational mind catch up with your feelings. If you still feel out of control by the time you reach ten, start counting again.

I am glad to see your interest in self improvement. That is the sign of recovery. You may learn some meditation or self hypnosis techniques to control mind. Mind goes into negative thoughts like worries in depression by conditioning. Wee can learn to reprogram our mind by deconditioning the old automatic thinking habits. Mindfulness breathing exercise and hypnotherapy you can learn. Books: power of now. Power of your subconscious mind.

Dear doctor please advise supplements for an o.c.d.patient to enhance his work power on computer as an engineer.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Bardhaman
My answers will be as follows. 1. There are no dietary supplements effective for OCD. Only proper medications and psychotherapy will be effective. 2. Taurine type of Amino acids are not well studied or effective for schizophrenia. Make sure the sufferer is taking necessary medicine. 3. Role of dietary creatine for muscle mass is questionable.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. In no way you can control what others are going to sy or others says. Even if you do good, there will be people who ridicule and even if you do bad, there will be people who justify you. Therefore do not heed to people who are in no way going shape your life. I suggest you online counseling. Take care.

What is the effects of cigarette 9n human body normally which type of deasises are become?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
What is the effects of cigarette 9n human body normally which type of deasises are become?
STOP SMOKING Best age to stop smoking is before 40, In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40 31st May is “World No Tobacco Day” Quitting smoking before the age of 40 is associated with larger decline in premature death than stopping it at a later date. Best age therefore to stop smoking is before 40. However, stopping smoking even after the age of 50 is still associated with lower risk of death as compared to those who continue to smoke. Even in smokers aged 80 years or more, quitting smoking appears to reduce some mortality.

Dear are you taking these two meds without break since 2006. If you arer and u didn't face another episode of illness since then, then it is time to reduce your medicines. Start with reducing Olanzepine to 2.5mg per night. Otherwise please consult a psychiatrist to get review of your medications. Regards Dr. Vishal Chhabra

Hi I am 27 years old. I spend most of my day's time with my office friend . She is also female . I feel I am lesbian. Because I get attracted to her. But I feel it is just because I am emotionally and mentally attached to her. So all I am feeling this. I just want to know how do I confirm if I am a lesbian or not ?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
If you are attracted only emotionally you may not be lesbian, but very much dependent on her. If you are attracted physically wanting to have body intimacy, but also have similar thoughts with men, then you are bi-sexual. But if you have those exclusively towards women (body intimacy). Then you are a Lesbian. Whatever it is, nothing wrong, enjoy your sexuality

Do one thing at a time. Multi tasking can confuse you. Write down all tht ylu want to do. Pick up what is most important and needs to be done first. Give yourself a timeframe to finish that work and prepare a outline of how you want to proceed. Eat right, exercise and rest properly.

Dear lybrate user, thinking about your life situations is good. But too much of anything is harmful. What is important is, how you look at all situations. If you are thinking only about what is happening and why and how it is happening, then probably you will feel stuck after some time. You may start thinking like - ok, now this has happened, what can I do now to get out this situation? and start working on that, only then you will be able to move forward in life. Everyone has ups and downs in life. Look around, you will find there are so many people who are in worst condition, compared to yours. So count your blessings. Look at others' lives who are doing better than you, find out how they achieved this, take inspiration from them. More importantly, cry when you feel like crying. Crying is not a sign of weakness, it relieves you of your sad feelings. Talk to someone who you have faith in. Share your burden of sad things with your friends/parents etc. Learn to let go of certain things. Keep moving ahead in life, acquire new skills, gain knowledge, take charge of your life. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user, same-sex sexual attractions, behavior, and orientations per se are normal and positive variants of human sexuality; in other words, they are not indicators of mental or developmental disorders. Same-sex sexual attractions and behavior can occur in the context of a variety of sexual orientations and sexual orientation identities sexual orientation probably is not determined by any one factor but by a combination of genetic, hormonal, and environmental influences. Be comfortable with what you are, do not feel pressurized by society or any one for that matter.
