My problem is that when something unexpected thing happens, mind diverts to that thing. I am not able to focus on my goal. People says that we should be practical in every situation. But my nature is over emotional that if any one hurt me badly and that person comes to me next and say something sweetly, I melt like a butter. But it repeatedly happens. Not able to control on my emotions. Kindly guide me how can I am able to b practical in every situation?

Dear lybrate-user: The patient needs to be assessed for underlying psychological factors. Developmental history and personality factors also need to be evaluated. If the anxiety attack seems sudden, with no apparent situational correlates, you need to check for signs of panic attack. If the diagnosis is panic attack, then treatment may be done either by a psychiatrist or by an experienced psychologist with therapeutic skills in managing anxiety disorder and panic attack.

Hii. This is pradeep, I had a habit of smoking, will you please give me a suggestion to quit smoking. And to clean my lungs.

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Where there is a will there is a way. So if you have decided to quit smoking then you may have to stick to your decision and take professional help if needed because the problem with most of the people are they again start smoking after some days. You might have heard the saying' quitting smoking is very easy I have done, I have done it thousand time' your lungs will automatically get clean if you quit and breath fresh non polluted air.

Dear, tension means anxiety. Anxiety is fear about unknown happening or fear about future. Anxiety about things which we do not know or anxiety about things we are not experienced are common. Please tell me what makes you anxious- past? present? future? career? economic status? health matters? anything else? let me know. Take care.

I have mild anxiety disorder. I face fearful dreams most of the days hence my sleep is not comfortable. What to be done? Pls help.

You have not been dealing with your fears for a long time, perhaps. All unexpressed feelings will find some other way of expressing itself in the body. These will lead to psychological problems of various kinds. You need to be trained in dealing with emotions and retain it as an ongoing process in life. Meet a counselor and get some guidance in this regard. In the meantime, please follow an exercise regiment, eat well and keep good company. Make your last meal, as far as possible, a pure carbohydrate meal. Eat early and make it a small meal too. Avoid all foods that cause flatulence. Sleep on your left ear most of the night. Every time you feel fear talk to someone about it. Do some deep breathing, with your left nostril shut, and you will immediately calm down. If it gets too much, place your index finger on your shut lips and puff up your cheeks tightly with air and hold it for some time. The back pressure of the air will press the vagus nerve at the rear of the throat and immediately reduce the heart rate to calm you down. I am only suggesting this because you say the anxiety is mild. If it is worse, please visit a psychiatrist.

This is a very treasured moment in his life itself. You must encourage him and be with him engaging him as much as possible. He will feel anxiety and irritation for some time but do encourage him to talk about his feelings. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines the lungs with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. His oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing will be impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but take him for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of his abuse. Regarding improving his lungs, he needs to do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through his nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which he can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses his system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting himself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. He should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time he feels like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. He may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. He may also join Smokers Anonymous in his city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep himself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all let him announce it to everyone that he has quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if he accidentally/willfully takes a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – he can start the cessation all over again. He must persevere with the best support until he defeats this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. HIsd resolution is important and keeping him motivated is the task for the rest of the family. You must capture this opportunity and make it his best effort.

Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i. E. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.

More than anxiety, I think you are developing phobia and having hysterical reactions too. These are all fear based and as such if you work with a counselor to address the fear a lot can be resolved. These are examples of normal fear becoming abnormal due to the neglect of fear itself. Fear is good and is extremely useful to exercise caution where necessary. Somewhere and somehow you have been denying the fear and it has over a period of time developed into phobia. It is also possible that in childhood you may have had some traumatic experience and that has led to this abnormal response to fear today. Meet with a counselor and deal with your emotions to deal with the underlying causes. In the meantime, you can learn to de-condition yourself off of the phobia by frequenting these places with a therapist and gradually working out through the experience the various reactions that you will go through. Over time you will find that your phobia is unfounded and learn to develop normal responses to these situations. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the phobia with a calmer disposition. This will give you an undue advantage over the phobia to perhaps bring it into the normal realm of fear. That, you can then tackle with aplomb.

Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. Lack of appetite, anger, aggression etc are withdrawal symptoms. But nothing to worry. 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.

3 Surprising Ways Kids Can Affect Your Relationship and What to Do

3 Surprising Ways Kids Can Affect Your Relationship and What to Do

Having children is a challenging and full time job. Whether you have one child or four of them, the mental and emotional implications of raising a child will always be tremendous. This is mainly due to the fact that children have a way of becoming your greatest challenge. They are a life altering addition to your home and life and you would do well to understand this as you evolve as a parent, rather than letting it hinder the other quarters of your life.

Read on to know the surprising ways in which kids can affect your relationship, and what you can do about it!

  1. Sharing Responsibilities: While marriage or cohabiting may change the way you look at the person you dated, having a child with that partner completely changes the logistics in the relationship. This is because the unsaid rule of responsibility comes into the picture. While both parents are equally responsible for the child, a delicate rhythm and routine tends to fall into place. Yet, the setting of this very routine can take the mickey out of the most compatible couples when it comes to figuring out expectations and the unsaid pressure. For example, as per medical studies, it has been proven that fathers tend to have a less active role when the couple is raising a daughter. So, in case you are facing a laid back partner, you may want to discuss sharing responsibilities that would have little to do with gender centric roles.
  2. Full Time Job: Your relationship with your partner and spouse is one of the things that will get heavily impacted by the addition of a child or children to your equation. This is because raising a child is a full time job that requires the commitment of two people who are unique and were drawn to each other for certain reasons that may seem very different when a third individual is in the equation, especially one who requires full time care and raising. Here, you can remember to show your emotions in a less judgmental manner and discuss things on a regular basis to avoid strife.
  3. Career: While most women go through the pain of labour and delivery, men may go through the guilt of tying down a woman who might have been career oriented. In such cases, it is best to talk about getting back to a career and the support that the father can render, beforehand.

There are a number of ways in which child rearing affects individual households. So, it is best to go in for counselling in case things get too difficult to handle.
