I have more stress in mind .but. I don't know to come out from stress .plz help me.
Stress is a reaction to a real or perceived event that acts as a stressor. In other words, how much stressed one feels depends on how much stress one perceives in a given situation. Start by making a stress diary. Identify what causes stress. Ask why it causes stress. Is it a negative presumption about the even or a reality that is bothering you. Then figure out, how you have been dealing with the stressor. If the way you handle stress doesn't help, figure out the alternatives. If you by yourself are not able to do this exercise, consult a psychotherapist.

I have tensions. what should I do?

Post Graduate Diploma In Rehabilitation Psychology, M A Clinical Psychology
Psychologist,
I have tensions. what should I do?
Hi it is normal to feel tensed and get stressed out from daily challenges we face in our day to day life. Any new circumstance, change @ workplace, in personal life, unexpected event can leave you feeling tensed. These changes are uncontrollable & getting tensed is inevitable but" suffering" is optional & you can opt for better coping strategies to deal with such situations; so that you don't end up getting stressed out. I am suggesting some quick fix tips here 1. When tensed try to be rational rather than emotional 2. Identify your trusted social support system (friends & family) where you can share whats troubling you? 3. Try weighing pros & cons if you too confused to make a decision. 4. If nothing works. Get help from a counsellor. Its ok to ask for help when needed; instead of suffering and deteriorating your mental & physical health. I provide online consultations too. All the best!

Dear, 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 her problem. Let me know if she is willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

I am 77 years old having diagnosed with parkinsons. It is two years since hand tremor started. Neurologist prescribed ropark (ropinirole) 2 mg, rasalect (rasagiline) 0.5 mg (both after breakfast) and betacap (proponolol) 0.5 mg (morning and after supper) further tests show hypothyroidism and two months after having medication tests show normal. No investigation was done to ascertain as to why thyroid is under performing. I have lost a lot of weight too. I would appreciate your reply to all my points

Thyroid is normal if not overactive since you have not gained weight. You need to check what has caused loss of weight and how much? are you eating well? if not consult your doctor.

HI lybrate-user! Where you in love with your boyfriend. Did you both cross the limits or planned to get married. Did you try to contact him, if go what was his answer. Just be bold enough to ask him why he cheated You, first try to know the reason. Do not get depressed easily. He is not worthy enough for you. At least feel happy that it happened before your marriage or before having kids. Look he has cheated you. There may be number of reasons for his marriage may be parents force or status, caste or someone attractive, actually speaking true love was not in his heart to marry you. What is the use of thinking such a silly person in life who showed only his positive character in life and not the bad character. He had the worst character which you found out now only. Okay no use of killing yourself or feeling sad instead covert your negative reactions into more positive one by getting married to more handsome and respectable person to the society, try to build in your personality, try to look smarter and attractive, try to come to higher level career wise, this is punishment you give to him. Do not punish yourself by killing you. Take care. Do not worry. If you feel free to contact me either through text chat or call me when you find difficulty to manage then consult me With regards, P

When our mind is hooked into past it is normal to have lot of negative thoughts and in turn feeling low. The good news is that our mind could be wired to switch back to positive things and resilience building. We have immense potential within us and we could tap into those one step at a time, one day at a time. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Definitely possible. First and foremost will be to practice in a familiar surrounding . Go to gyms and other activity places to interact with people. Try to practice in front of mirror. Practice relaxation exercises and yoga which can help. Avoid smoking and alcohol if any. Avoid too much caffeine and junk food. Last and most importantly believe in yourself and face it. Usually we feel nervous because we think what others think about us. Erase such thoughts and march ahead in life. All the best. Be relaxed stay healthy.

I am a 51 years male having normal health and physical fitness. I am smoking cigarettes for the past 32 years. Previously I use to smoke a lot but now I smoke round about 8-10 cigarettes a day. In the recent past I find I am coughing a lot and sometimes it aches in the stomach when I cough. I have tried quitting smoking several times but it is very difficult for me to quit smoking completely. What are the remedies? What medicines should I take?

Dear, 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.

Can I drink alcohol if I'm taking antidepressants? How should antidepressants be discontinued?
Drinking alcohol is not prohibited but may interact with medications you are taking and may increase their sedation and side effects on liver. Discontinuation of antidepressants has to be meticulously done according to the case history, remission of symptoms achieved etc under the close supervision of a psychiatrist only.

What is depression? What are the symptoms of Depression? What is the treatment for it?

What is depression? What are the symptoms of Depression? What is the treatment for it?
Depression is a real illness that impacts the brain. Anyone suffering from depression will tell you, it’s not imaginary or “all in your head.” Depression is more than just feeling “down.” It is a serious illness caused by changes in brain chemistry. Research tells us that other factors contribute to the onset of depression, including genetics, changes in hormone levels, certain medical conditions, stress, grief or difficult life circumstances. Any of these factors alone or in combination can precipitate changes in brain chemistry that lead to depression’s many symptoms. Depression is a serious condition. It’s also, unfortunately, a common one. The World Health Organization characterizes depression as one of the most disabling disorders in the world, affecting roughly one in five women and one in ten men at some point in their lifetime. It is estimated that 21% of women and 12% of men in the you. S will experience an episode of depression at some point in their lifetime. Depression does not discriminate. Men and women of every age, educational level, and social and economic background suffer from depression. There is no area of life that does not suffer when depression is present. Marriage, parenting, friendships, careers, finances – every aspect of daily living is compromised by this disease. Once an episode of depression occurs, it is also quite likely that it will recur. And the impact of depression can be even more severe when it occurs in combination with other medical illnesses such as diabetes, stroke, or cardiovascular disease, or with related disorders such as anxiety or substance abuse. The problems caused by depression are made worse by the fact that most people suffering from the disease are never diagnosed, let alone treated. The good news is that when depression is promptly identified and treated, its symptoms are manageable and there are many effective strategies for living with the disease. Depression and bipolar disorder are both treated most effectively in their earliest stages when symptoms are less severe. Although scientists agree that depression is a brain disorder, the debate continues about exact causes. Many factors may contribute to the onset of depression, including genetic characteristics, changes in hormone levels, certain medical illnesses, stress, grief, or substance abuse. Any of these factors alone or in combination can bring about the specific changes in brain chemistry that lead to the many symptoms of depression, bipolar disorder and related conditions. WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF DEPRESSION? Depression commonly affects your thoughts, your emotions, your behaviors and your overall physical health. Here are some of the most common symptoms that point to the presence of depression: Feelings: Sadness Hopelessness Guilt Moodiness Angry outbursts Loss of interest in friends, family and favorite activities, including sex Thoughts: Trouble concentrating Trouble making decisions Trouble remembering Thoughts of harming yourself Delusions and/or hallucinations can also occur in cases of severe depression Behaviors: Withdrawing from people Substance abuse Missing work, school or other commitments Attempts to harm yourself Physical problems: Tiredness or lack of energy Unexplained aches and pains Changes in appetite Weight loss Weight gain Changes in sleep – sleeping too little or too much (Note: if you are concerned about your sleep, Click here to take a simple quiz that can help you determine whether your current sleep patterns may be causing you problems.) Sexual problems Of course, all of us can expect to experience one or more of these symptoms on occasion. An occurrence of any one of these symptoms on its own does not constitute depression. When healthcare professionals suspect depression, they commonly look for clusters of these symptoms occurring regularly for two weeks or longer, and impacting functional aspects of the person’s life.

Alcoholism is one of the reason for high blood pressure. Though alcohol has direct effects on bp it also indirectly affect bp. Usually alcoholic people eat oily food and nonveg food more frequently than non alcoholic people and they also spend much time in drinking without physical activities.
