I suffering from stress depression and lonely please how to recover from that. From that I can not sleep at night early.

I suffering from stress depression and lonely please how to recover from that. From that I can not sleep at night early.
You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, 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, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch 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 scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. The depression can and will affect sleep to either cause more sleep or poor sleep. Once the depression is sorted out, this will likely change for the better.

Hello, My elder brother is addicted to alcohol, he eats Gutkha and also smokes, he has this habits since 10 years now, he is now married for 3 years and have no kids, he became very weak and his head shakes all the time due to weakness we are very much worried and want him to get rid of this bad habits of alcohol, we have asked him to quit this habits but he won't listen. We do not want his wife life to get spoiled because of him. We want him to lead a healthy life. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Both of them are orally ingested habits of alcohol and gutkha and so quitting can be a little difficult but can be done at one time. There are no guarantees about stopping one’s addiction. But that does not mean we should not keep at it, over and over again until we succeed. Now it is difficult to give up all by himself because he has become addicted to alcohol and gutkha and there is so much to do. Under such circumstances it is best that he is admitted into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that he can attend counseling with a professional. Since he has probably tried and found it extremely difficult I suggest he does one of the following: It sounds like he is in an advanced stage of alcoholism and gutkha use and needs admission to a rehabilitation center to ideally help deal with this problem. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. He will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he does not only consume the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking in particular and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope.

I'm suffering from severe depression and anxiety issues. This is resulting in insomnia and other problems.

I'm suffering from severe depression and anxiety issues. This is resulting in insomnia and other problems.
Sleep problems always follow depression faithfully: either you will tend to oversleep or undersleep. With the resolution of depression a lot of these difficulties will disappear. At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition.

Whenever I am physically intimate with a girl or even if I suspect eminent intimacy, I begin to tremble uncontrollably. This makes me feel quite awkward and I have no control on ejaculation too. Also this is not the only time it happens. While working or doing some things in front of my seniors I feel the same problem. Is this a treatable disorder? Is there perhaps some sort of quick fix solution? Can you suggest some drugs to treat this? Do I have anxiety and panic disorder?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, you do show signs of anxiety in terms of expectations. There is no quick fix and it is best to resolve it with some work on emotional therapy. Understanding your feelings and how to deal with it successfully is the key. There may be some root cause for this condition from childhood or your past. There may have been undue parental expectation or you may have developed high and perhaps unrealistic expectation of yourself too. These expectations could cause early ejaculation in sex because of getting overly excited. Meet with a counselor and determine the contribution to further help deal with your condition.

This is the result of not combining therapy with medication. Please contact a counselor and through that you will develop skills and techniques to cope. This is exactly what you need for all the other problems. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition.

It could be anxiety or hysteria: both are fear-based and therefore it is important to focus on dealing with some fear from the past.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. 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.. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react in a panic. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses.

I have anxiety problems from like last one or one and half year. How to deal with it?
There is an abnormal fear called anxiety and it could do with some contribution from your upbringing. Perhaps you experienced strict parenting; or you were intimidated by dire consequences for failure; perhaps you were brought up believing that you were not as good as others; perhaps you were forced to show undue regard for elders and felt inferior around them, etc. You must immediately seek help from a counselor. In the meantime you must do certain things to build your constitution physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally. Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Any way what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. 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 anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. You need to attend personality development courses, personal grooming courses, conversational skills courses, and definitely a good education will empower you to boost self-confidence and by default self-image. Learn never to compare yourself with others: you are unique and there is only one of your kind, ever. If you let that sink in and appreciate who you are truly, you will go places.

My nephew's nature is getting aggressive day by day, fights with his younger bro (cousin) every now and then. He gets emotional on very little issues then separate himself from other family members and start crying his eyes out all alone or start doing some weird acts. Please advice what should we do ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I don't know the age of the younger brother to consider the impact of that. Even so, all this is for attention. Whether some early childhood influences have to be considered for this behaviour may be necessary. However, whatever his need for attention do encourage him to talk abut it and tell him that this inappropriate way of seeking attention will not be allowed with very strong terms. Keep in mind to reject the behaviour not the person. Look at all the areas where you can give him positive attention and lower the levels of confrontation to a mild level. You can also talk to him in a reasonable manner: they understand a lot if we can speak to them at thier own level. Give him individual time by taking him out for walks, movies, visits without neglecting the cousin. Obviously, the cousin has his own parents and will get his affection from them. So do not give him too much especially in front of your own son. I believe that the father's role may be quite critical and useful in all this. If all this does not change his mannerisms, take him to a child psychologist for professional care.
