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. 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.

My brother is 36. He is depressed since childhood as our father is an alcoholic. He is not willing to see any doctor or psychologist for the unhappiness and anger that he carries. Is there a way that I can help him without his knowing of it.

Speak to him about your father, raise the topic so that he starts talking about it. This will facilitate ventilation of suppressed anger and improve his condition. But you must not raise the topic, talk for couple of minutes and leave. That will leave him angry and irritable without beneficial effects. You need to carry the discussion for 30-40 minutes on each instance. Many such instances may be needed. The end of a typical session is signalled when the intensity of his outburst has significantly reduced. Initially he may be resistant, but gradually he will improve. Take care!

Bipolar disorder is an episodic disorder, if you had manic symptoms of bipolar, you may have lost insight and behaved irrationally. Else, in acute psychosis (symptoms similar to schizophrenia), the same would have happened. Surely there are chances of recurrence. Review with psychiatrist regularly. Hope he explained relapse cues, so that you can consult early in case symptoms recur.

Hi lybrate-user, I am glad that you recognize the fact that you are a hardworker and must have put in your best foot forward for upcoming exam. I guess what you are calling depression may be examination anxiety which is pretty common amongst people to experience before any exam. And if you do not take charge of yourself then it will be difficult for you to focus on exam. What you can do is to sit for five minutes with your eyes closed and do deep breathing, let the thoughts enter in your mind but you do not pay heed to them. Once you are relaxed then visualize yourself sitting in the exam hall, and attempting all questions confidently. I am sure you shall be able to crack this exam when yoy focus on your abilities and be confident that you will come out with flying colours. Eat light nutritious diet and sleep for at least 6/7 hour before the night of exam. During exam read all the questions carefully and do not panic if you think you don't know the answer of any question. First attend those questions you are confident about answering, then those you are less confident and lastly those whose answer you may know if you think carefully. Do not panic at any stage. Do not worry you are in control and keep reassuring yourself that you can do it. Good luck for the exam.

He use to stay with parents but from few days his father is complaining about him he is not going to office regularly and fights with his parents on small issues and keeps on drinking and blame his parents for his situation and asked them to leave. Because of his behaviour he lost his current job that's when I meet him. I thought as a friend I can help him but things are getting worse. He is only looking for a reason to drink and blame his family. He in fact blame his parents for he being single.

Alcohol dependence is associated with significant physical, mental and social problems. Physically, there can be liver failure, jaundice, vomiting of blood, passing blood in stools, stomach ulcers, damage to nerves of the body, swelling of legs, fluid collection in abdomen, and many more. Mentally, there is irreversible brain damage, worsening of anxiety or depression, triggering of psychosis and mood disorders, dementia, etc. From a social point of view, there may be isolation from neighbors or family, increased abusive behavior to children or spouses, legal problems, accidents, etc. Try to convince your friend to seek medical help. Get his liver function tests done; if they are deranged, that can be used as a motivation to seek psychiatric help. It is common to have anxiety, depression, etc in these patients. However this increases their risk of self harm and sucicide. Do not give him any medication as advertised on TV or newspapers, which claim to treat the patient of alcoholism without his knowledge. Anti craving medications are available which will help to reduce the craving. Consult a psychiatrist with experience in deaddiction. You may consult me if required.

Yes. Cigarette smoking can reduce appetite apart from other many adverse effects on body. You should exercise, eat healthy and lead a healthy lifestyle. If unable to abstain you should take psychiatric treatment for kicking the smoking habit. It is very helpful.

On every cigratte case it is written that cigratte smoking is injurious to health, no matters you do not smoke daily but 4 times a week is not less and it can pose some serious threat to your body in long term--------so try to slowly quit this habit and surely you will come out of all the adverse effecct in short time---------------------we can think of taking something in routine if it has even a single benefit but smoking has no benefit but all negative health issues----so what is the advantage of smoking------------just time pass, timely pleasure, thatsall------immediately try to quit this habit-----

A typically depressed person will have following symptoms: 1. Loss of interest in daily routine activities. 2. Too much sleep or not able to sleep, not eating. 3 not bothered about personal hygiene 4. Not talking to anyone, not expressing feelings. 5. Avoid interaction with others. 6. Keep crying on and off 7. No facial expression, emotional numbness 8. Talking about worthlessness, expressing wish to commit suicide. 9 feeling totally hopeless, not able to enjoy life. If you identify anyone with above mentioned symptoms, please try to talk to that student, listen to him with empathy. Ask his friends to be with him/her, if the student is talking about suicide. Please make them aware that since they are coming from different place and background, they will be different. But they need not be ashamed of it. If they wish they can learn some etiquettes, dialect etc which is more acceptable in urban areas. They need to give themselves some time to come at par with their urban counterparts. Please help them to focus on their strengths by asking them to write if down on a paper and ask them to read it every day. Also help them to learn spoken english, if possible train them for public speaking etc. It will boost their self confidence. I am very happy to see your commitment towards your students. Wish you good luck.

During the night you will tend to use your unconscious mind more, especially during deep REM sleep. It is likely that you are waking up with the old memories and emotions that are buried in the unconscious mind from childhood and they are seeking a resolution. You must study the emotions and meet with a counselor to see what needs to be done. There is nothing to be alarmed about as this helps in unearthing old issues, which with the resolution, will make you feel completely fine and well too. Expressing feelings will be very important and issues that you have chosen to bury because they may have been too traumatic to keep remembering will get its due attention.

My fathers drinks too much so what should I do to stop it is there any medicine to stop it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Ideally, your father should want to give up alcohol himself to begin with. If not, it is going to be an uphill task and to the most part impossible. However, you should not be in want of trying. If he is unwilling to seek help, he needs to be admitted to a rehabilitation center for at least 6 months. If not, there are centers who will come and pick him up when he is drunk, when his resistance will be ineffective. This will require mom's permission and written consent. After your dad returns from therapy, there will be a lot of follow-ups, both in the house and in his daily activities that must be meticulously adhered to. There is a medicine called Disulfiram, which only the doctor can prescribe, and it is very powerful that even if he attempts to drink a small quantity, he can have serious reactions that may sometimes entail hospitalization. You have to monitor his intake of the medicine and keep a close watch on him. He also has to go for regular counseling for at least three years! Apart from his health, he will also affect the family and all his children will carry genetic factors for alcoholism. If he is into business or working, he will soon not be able to continue and he will go into financial ruin. He will lose all his friends and become ostracized by his society. He will lose his dignity, self-esteem, self-confidence, and become a misfit. He will also lose his sexual capacity, liver function, heart function, kidney etc. Now it is difficult to give up because he has become addicted to alcohol for some time and has a lot to do. The consumption of Antabuse has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes 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 and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. The children, including you and whoever else is there, will also have to attend meetings to work out their issues because of the father’s habit. In fact, they are all suffering from the Adult Children Of Alcoholics Syndrome (ACOAs), which in effect means that you are genetically predisposed to alcoholism or can have cross addiction problems and that you will have similar traits of the abusing alcoholic but in a milder form. There are special support groups for them all over the world. Should they touch or indulge in alcohol or any addictive substances or behaviors, they could also become full-fledged addicts themselves. Now you should not give up on him but neither should you harass him. Be continuously after him and in the end, you will succeed.
