You are suffering from depression, and I assume you have just entered your 20s age wise. Towards the later end of your adolescence most pathologies (if you have a predisposition for them) manifest and develop into serious conditions, if ignored. The aggression indicates that your depression could be anger related, which has other complications. Since you have had it for 2-3 years, I think you may be neglecting it too much. Kindly visit a psychiatrist but follow the prescription until advised. Also seek the help of a counselor to develop coping skills that will stand you in good stead for life.

You are still young. Only since 5 years you are smoking. These things makes quitting comparatively easy. Later, it is hard and takes more efforts to quit. If you have any withdrawal symptoms like headache, lack of concentration, increased hunger, irritability or lack of memory, you can try with nicotine gum or lozenges or patch. Please motivate yourself continuously with some gifts for next 12 weeks. That will reduce craving for nicotine. All the best. Cough and chest pain needs investigations to rule out harmful effects of smoking. Even if they are normal at present, quitting smoking keeps it normal for many years.

I have daughter who is 24 years old. We got her psychological test done 2 years back and as per doctor she had been identified as border line personality disorder. We tried that she take counselling but every 2 to 3 sessions she leaves it saying it is useless and I am alright. The impact is aggression in personality which is more when she comes close to her mensuration cycle. I need advise on medication counselling and how to tackle as a parent. Please suggest if we can find some good doctors in Bangalore.

Relax dear lybrate user. Yours is not a problem that needs no medical treatment. If you experiece nocturnal erection ( spontaneous erection during sleep, particularly at early mornings while you feel an urge to urinate), your problem is only psychogenic erectile dysfunction due anxiety/fear of failure/faulty knowledge about sex etc.,. Talk more about sex with your wife before engaging in, take more time to make forplays like kissing/fondling etc., before penetration. Regular practice of breathing exercises may help you reduce anxiety. Veg or non-veg doesnt matter for your problem. And it is not necessary to have a second attempt, if the first one is satisfactory. All the best.

If you are an occasional smoker - with public messages, health awareness programs and your own doctors advice, you can quit. If you are a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-smoking medications and de addiction treatment.

My Sister is suffering from Bipolar disorder and we got to know when she was in her 20s. She is on medication since then, now she is 32. She does not want to do anything and wants everything in life with no effort. As obvious in this disorder high and low. Very difficult for all of us to handle her. We cant leave her alone for few days even, She does not even want to do any household work, no job, not even cook for herself if nobody there at home. I am looking for advice how to make her live alone being strong and some desire to do activities (household, job, exercise, physical or mental). Can anybody help me please?

She can be made very functional if she went for regular counseling. If she is left alone and if the mind is not occupied, she will internalize her emotions and thoughts and they will breed more problems. She should be put on a tight program of interesting and occupying activities throughout the day. Do not let her lie down or sleep during the day. Right now, until she becomes cooperative, she should not be given any option about these activities; and someone who can be strict with her must enforce discipline in her daily routine. She must never feel rejected by anyone during enforcement of any healthy demands.One important function is the daily exercise, which must be vigorous and for more than half an hour. If she can be sent to a low-level course to learn any craft and make her earn small amounts through her work it would be very stimulating. She must spend some time of the day socializing with people outside, ideally in a work-related situation. In therapy she must be taught to handle her feelings, particularly anger. If she is episode-free for three years the doctor will consider weaning her off of her medication. So you are looking at getting her back to normal if you do not neglect her and the disease. Due to the 12 years she has been in this passive condition it might take a longer time to get her normal. so be patient and put in the energy to bring her back to good and productive living.

It has conflicting reports and is not fully safe unless otherwise indicated. I do not advise as there are more chances of Psychosis/ Panic disorder or delusional and amotivational syndrome developing compared to it use in Crcinoma or pain killing effect which is not advisable,although some countries allow low dosage and conflict of interest exist. I sincerely advise it is not safe to abuse /use Marijuana.

Aggression and anger hides other primary feelings like sadness, inferiority, fear, embarrassment, worry etc. What do you feel immediately before getting angry? anger is as normal as any other emotion and need not be done away with totally. Anger helps you to know that someone is trespassing your boundaries or your needs are not being met. However, aggression is a higher level of anger which is often an indication of stress. The person feels out of control and compulsive to show aggression to get an upper hand. But this is a socially unacceptable behavior and is accompanied by feelings of loneliness and isolation when people start reacting to aggression. You would need to be self aware and find out your reasons to become aggressive and how else can you communicate to show your displeasure. 1. You can talk assertively and explain your anger rather than expressing it. 2. Talk without blaming the other person and try to understand their perspective and give your perspective too. 3. Choose your battles: you can fight for some things that are very important for you. Learn to let go of things that don' t matter so much. 4. Ask for time out and don' t attack the problem when you are all heated up. Cool down, think rationally and then talk. Aggression usually take sober the rational mind and logic and tends to think emotionally and illogically. 5. Use humor and tact to tackle situations: you need not react aggressively every time. Learn diplomacy and tact to get your point across. Humor is very helpful to dissipate anger and aggression. Don' t take life so seriously, hang out with people who are humorous, light hearten like minded and progressive people.

I am 45 years old I am in too much depression I am not getting proper sleep too much headache.
For sleep do the following: In your case particularly, do not sleep during the day; don’t even lie down. Go for regular exercise (breathing through your nostrils only) at a fixed time (at about 6 am) every day, whether you sleep or not. You must develop this habit of sleeping by 10 pm latest every night and wake up at a uniform time by 6 am every morning, even if you do not get sleep. If you do not get sleep, just lie down and if you have a bed lamp (or you could get one) lie down and read something light but not exciting. Your eyes will tire and you will fall asleep. If you like you may also put on light and soft music with the sleep function on. Depending on whether you are a visual or auditory person, you may watch TV in a lying down position until you feel sleepy. Have a warm bath before going to bed (for some people a cold bath at night seems to induce sleep! If you are one of them, please do so). Place the head side of your bed in a North-South position. The room must be as dark as possible and there should be no electronic items that give off even a light LED glow. There must be ample ventilation in the room. Avoid strong odors, except lavender, on your body or in the room, or on your sheets and clothes. There should not be any live plants in your bedroom. Sleep with the lightest of clothes or without any clothing. When lying down to sleep, lie down on your left ear as much as possible. Do not sleep directly under an overhead fan. You must eat a good breakfast, a fairly light lunch, and an early dinner, which should be a very light meal. Whatever you eat in the other meals, have only a pure carbohydrate meal at night with any vegetables, and preferably before 8 pm. Do not drink much liquids after or near about dinner time. When lying down to sleep you may use the 4-7-8 breathing pattern of sleep inducement i.e. Breathe in for four counts through your nostril only, hold for 7 counts, and exhale with a whoosh sound, through your mouth only, for 8 counts. Repeat this four times in the morning and just before you sleep at night. If you know Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT (check this out either on YouTube or Google), then please practice this too for sleep induction. Self-hypnosis and slow relaxation techniques, at night will be tremendously useful. Acupuncture or acupressure will both be very useful too. Pray last thing at night before you sleep. Your depression is anger related so meet with a counselor and get your emotions sorted out. For the depression follow the recommendations mentioned below: 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

Is Healthier Mindset the Way to Better Relationships?

B.A. Psychology, M.A. Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology
Psychologist

Have you been emotionally invested in a relationship for quite some time? have you faced continual fights and disagreements with your partner? have these fights resulted into frustration or have they affected the natural course of your respective lives? if yes, it is time for you to reassess the effort or rather the kind of effort you put in to make things work. Quarrels are an integral part of any healthy and serious relationship. However, an overdose may lead to severed ties. It bruises your memory and leaves you too distraught to engage in an emotional attachment. The kind of mindset a person applies to his or her relationship determines the kind of treatment the person receives in the relationship. Hence, you must be very careful.
A healthier mindset can be adopted in the following ways:

1. To complain as least as possible: keep low expectations from your partner. The most common reason for conflict in relationships is the list of expectations, which when left unfulfilled leads to complaining and nagging. What you do for your partner is what'you think is the right thing, but your partner may not hold the same perspective.

2. Respecting and accepting your partner as he/she is: a package deal, will resolve many issues without debate. When pointed out in subtle ways, your partner will understand and try to change for you, if she/he wishes to.

3. Try to have a growth oriented mindset: a growth oriented mindset as opposed to a fixed mindset can always help. When you have a fixed mindset you easily give up on your partner or on the relationship. You tend to feel hopeless about future and associate a lack of growth or change with your partner. A growth- oriented mindset endows you with hope. A situation is perceived as an occurrence in the present that need not necessarily be translated into future. Also, such a mindset expects both parties to accept and encourage change and growth of individuals in the relationship. Anything contrary can make your relationship boring.

4. Stop using labels: labeling is an indecent way of identifying the problem with your partner or with the relationship in general. You should neither brand yourself as something or your partner as something else. Associating critical adjectives with one another is a way of demeaning your lover and can dissuade your partner from communicating his or her viewpoint.

5. Look for the trigger: most quarrels result from a trigger. Trying to pinpoint the trigger with a cool head can actually be of use. This will make partners aware of their faults and instead of dodging the situation they will be able to deal with it better.

6. Try to rekindle the spark: time, overburdening responsibilities or workload can make your relationship a routine affair. An element of secrecy and excitement is important. Therefore, desire should never take a backseat in your relationship. Try to fulfill your partner's desire and let him or her know about your expectations as well.

Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

Natural concentration is when the mind can hold a thought for a long time, when thoughts are under our own control. Without concentration the mind goes here, there and everywhere, jumping like a monkey from branch to branch, idea to idea. When there is a natural concentration, we can control our mind and there is peace. This one-pointed concentration on a thought, holding it for as long as we like, gradually collects strength in the mind and in the self. A strong mind is a mind that is peaceful, stable, satisfied and can remain in the deeper meaning of a thought. There is no waste caused by over-thinking, or the high speed of thought: These are the two greatest diseases of the mind these days, which is why there is so much stress and mental breakdown. Stress can foil concentration and learning ability. Although concentration is different to memory, they can affect each other. Concentration precedes memory. If you are under stress your concentration will go for a toss, then naturally memory will be totally foiled. So meet with a counselor to take care of the stress and your memory will happily return. You can follow these simple rules in the meantime: 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. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Now take you pick!

Hi, take out some time for exercise. Atleast half an hour do brisk walk or jogging. Eat more fruits and vegetables, cut down sugar and rice completely. Yes stress and monotonous lifestyle can contribute to wight gain. In stress sometimes we tend to do emotional eating- stress affects sexual performance too. Don't sit on your chair for long and keep walking after every half hour for few minutes. Take lot of water.
