We all dream at night. A normal person may have 5 - 6 dreams every night. But we don't remember these dreams, because we are fast asleep. We remember those dreams which occur when we are half asleep. Since, you remember so many dreams, that itself shows that you are not in the state of deep sleep for a long time. Our body is rejuvenated completely when we get enough of this deep sleep. But you are not able to have enough deep sleep and hence your body does not get enough rest. So you find it difficult to wake up early. Please understand that getting many dreams is not your problem, but not getting enough deep sleep is the concern. There might be many reasons for not getting enough deep sleep. Like you said your are stressed because of ca final exams and stress at office, this might be putting a lot pressure on your mind. If there are any other personal worries or health concerns, financial troubles etc then that also will affect your sleep. If possible go for jog/walk/yoga etc which will help you in reducing your stress. Try to go to bed at a fixed time. Have a cup of hot milk if possible, before sleeping. Before lying down, sit on the bed with legs folded, eyes closed and lights switched off and then take long, deep breaths. Just observe your breaths. Start counting from 1 to 100. Also recite some mantra/shlokas if you believe in them. Basically try to calm your mind before sleeping. In spite of all this, if you cannot sleep early, still get up at a fixed time, it will help you to fall asleep early the next day. All the best.

My hand shaking every time due hesitation, anxiety and depression. How can stops fastly?
Shaking occurs as a result of adrenaline. That makes it hard to stop shaking once you've already started. You can't stop adrenaline. You simply need to wait for it to get used up and control your anxiety in the process. There are a few simple things you can try: •Jog Running may use up adrenaline faster, and help you stop shaking. •Deep Breaths Breathing slow can be helpful for shaking as well. •Yell While you can't do it in public, some people find yelling loudly to be somewhat therapeutic. Some people have trained themselves to shake less. Drinking water and eating healthier may help too. Some people shake worse when their body needs more nutrients or hydration. But in general, the only way to stop shaking is to stop the anxiety that causes it.

1. Sleep well and regular. Irregular sleep can have some serious consequences. It affects both our physical health and also contributes to anxiety and stress. Anxiety as such also leads to disruptions in sleep. When feeling anxious, always try to get a full 7 to 9 hours of uninterrupted sleep and it can work wonders to improve your condition. 2. Always keep smiling. Take a quick break in between your hectic work to get some laughs with your friends. Laughter can reduce depression and anxiety and has proven benefits. 3. Tidy up your living space or workspace. Keep your things clean and clutter-free. That helps us think clear and thus reducing levels of anxiety. 4. Say thank you often. Expressing your thanks for something helps reduce anxiety. 5. Eat smart. Eating more of foods which are rich in vitamin b and omega-3 fatty acids and also healthy whole grain carbs. Vitamin b contributes to good mental health. While omega 3 fatty acids help with both depression and anxiety. Whole grain foods boost serotonin and helps us remain poised. Eating high-sugar content food and processed foods can increase levels of anxiety. 6. Learn to breathe well and relax. Short, shallow breaths arise when you are tensed. So consciously breathing deeply, plus increasing the duration and depth of breathing helps relax the body and mind to a great extent. 7. Meditate. Meditation has so many positive effects on stress, mood, and anxiety. Club meditation with positive thinking to improve your general well-being and overall health. Yoga is also very effective to take off stress from the body and mind by deep relaxation and breathing techniques. 8. Chill and be silent. Reduce the noise and clutter talk that contributes to anxiety. Find time for yourself and be alone to muse upon your own matters without anyone disturbing you. 9. Worry. Yes, we can cause ourselves to freak out, but only for a certain amount of time. When something weighs heavily on your mind, or you believe something terrible is most definitely going to occur, commit to only creating that worry for 20 minutes. Think of all the possible outcomes of the scenario, figure out some game plans, and then quit thinking about it after 20 minutes go by. Have a friend call after the allotted time has passed to avoid the temptation of going over the time limit. Or schedule some of that playtime right afterward. 10. Plan for the future but do not worry about it. Make time tables and to-do lists so that you will not be worried about finishing stuff and so that you can increase your productivity. 11. Be positive. When you feel anxious, train your mind to think and feel positive and give reinforcement to yourself that you can handle any situation. This will significantly reduce your stress and anxiety symptoms. 12. Smell relaxing stuff. Go out to your garden. Smell a fresh rose. Take a deep breathe and allow the relaxation to course through your whole body. You can also use relaxing aroma therapy and use it indoors. 13. Go out and spend time with your friends and family. Spend time with your pets social support reduces anxiety and stress to such a great extent that it is almost always bearable. So next time you get on your nerves, go out with your friends, chat with them, watch a movie, spend some time watching the waves in the beach with your partner, talk to your siblings. If you have tried all these and still have problems, please consult me for prescription medication.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder treatment may not cure the symptoms totally, but it can definatly help you bring her symptoms under control so it won't disturb both hers and yours daily life. Some people may need treatment for the rest of their lives. The two main treatments for ocd are psychotherapy and medications. Often, treatment is most effective with a combination of these. Exposure and response prevention (erp) therapy is one of the most effective treatment. This therapy involves gradually exposing you to your fear and having you learn healthy ways to cope with your anxiety. Exposure therapy takes effort and practice, but you may enjoy a better quality of life once you learn to manage your obsessions and compulsions. Therapy may take place in individual, family or group sessions. Please consult someone to decide your treatment modality. Apart from that, you might think getting help managing your response to her behavior and learn some ways to manage your own stress which might fuel the situation if not managed properly. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

You may be an introvert. This is a problem of fearing people for what they think about you, especially the ones who know you best. Yes, people will often judge you but that is not the final word. When we try to read other people’s mind we will always think that they know the worst things about you, that your flaws are easily visible, and then you feel self-conscious and guilty. This is all far from the truth. People do not know you, even if they are married to you for many years! In fact, you do not know yourself for many years and may go to your grave with a minimum understanding of yourself. So, face people with confidence, knowing that they are the least knowledgeable about you. Sometimes, your family may not have socialized much and that can also give you a disadvantage about mixing and meeting people. This can be unlearned and you can make a new beginning and easily become a social butterfly. Many people have hesitations about social situations and are in the same boat: you have a lot of company. The bottom line is that you have afraid: deal with your fear and people will seem different, and not so threatening. This ability is a natural ability in all of us. If it was not stimulated early in your life, now is not too late. We are all gregarious by nature, and need each other, to the extent that we are all interdependent. I recommend that you attend a personality development course, attend the Toastmasters Club, and meet people by attending conferences, seminars, workshops, meetings, and social clubs. In time, this anxiety will dissipate and disappear, completely.

Hello, I would suggest you to seek help from a professional as you are suffering for a year now. Depression is a state where there is a chemical imbalance in your body, it is a physiological condition and not purely psychological. Depression if treated earlier have a good prognosis. Please see someone and if need be you could start medication. Once you are on medication and you are feeling positive changes then you also incorporate following suggestions to help build resilience, which will help you manage your stress in a better way and you would be able to lead and happy and fulfilling life ahead. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could 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. Thus 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. If you need help in exploring what works best for you and make this into your life style do let me know. As a trained wellness coach I could help you tailored your own holistic wellness program. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Mr. Lybrate-user, diabetic retinopathy is a serious complication of diabetes. Particularly occurs if blood sugar level is not well controlled for a long time. Hyperglycemia affects small blood vessels of retina and blocks them creating lack of oxygen. This leads to development of new blood vessels which are fragile and bleed blocking the vision or shrivel and cause detachment of retina. Only treatment for this is laser therapy, or certain injections in to the eye or if needed surgery (vitriectomy). In other medical practices there is no treatment for this problem. Strict blood glucose control is also very essential part of the treatment. Please go through appropriate treatment. Getting depressed is not going to benefit. Thanks.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

My husband always in aggressive mood always possessive and don't lyk my praises and always says to me that I have a depression problem. Please tell me what can I do.

If your husband was a doctor, I would have said your need some treatment. But if he is trying to scare you and blame your behavior by throwing diagnoses around, it must not be allowed to work. If you are indeed doubtful, then you can meet with a counselor to know, if his accusations are true. But if he harasses you like this then it is possible that you could get depressed because of it. Now if you let him do that, then that will be an unfortunate neglect on your part. You must stand up for yourself and be counted. You should both go for marital counseling and sort out your differences and find out what is his insecurity. Are you making him insecure or is he suffering from this problem apart from you? if it is the former then you need to work on that. If it is the latter, then he has much to work on. If he is not willing to come for therapy, you go at least and learn how to cope and deal with this situation. Sometimes when he sees you working on your issues he may feel encouraged to come and then you will have the best situation for marital counseling. But do not be passive and take all this nonsense. This can lead to a grossly mismanaged relationship in the long run because you failed to take prompt action.
