I had been smoking from 7 -8 month regularly. Although am not a regular chain smoker. But am smoking not less than 12 cigarettes in a day. Help me out please.?
Due to shyness I felt nervous and uncomfort with my friends, relatives,crowd etc. I am introvert I don't have friends. I feel boring because I am all the day in home. I want to make friends but due to my introvert naturally. I am not serious about my life still. I am tired of my life.
How can I identify or diagnose if I have anxiety disorder or depression. I have had so many let downs and phases of negative feelings in life throughout. I consciously avoid thinking anything negative and past regrets. But some guilt and regret for not having achieved in life and not taken care of health just comes time and again though I resist. I was a consuming alcohol & smoking regularly. But stopped smoking completely and I drink alcohol occasional. I get a feeling of no mental agitation when I have alcohol. This I get even when I have a paracetamol or pain killer for illness. And even energy drinks like red bull or five hour energy gives me the same peaceful and non guilty, confident feeling. But when I done consume any of these for weeks or months I can't feel that peacefulness and confidence going. Is there any healthy natural alternative for these things. And does this mean I have depression n anxiety.
I am 23 years old. And for small reasons also I feel tension and I can't breath properly. I tried to think positive but its not happening. Due to this I am not able to sleep properly also. Please tell me a suggestion.
I am 20 year old and I 'm suffering from addiction of brown sugar. How I get relief from bone pain, insomnia and other side effect. I quit taking since 2 days but I feel very aggressive what can I do.
I lost my happiness, every days I am filing very tired and very headache feel. So please help me for this situation.
Borderline personality disorder
Borderline personality disorder is experienced in individuals in many different ways. Often, people with this disorder will find it more difficult to distinguish reality from their own misperceptions of the world and their surrounding environment. While this may seem like a type of delusion disorder to some, it is actually related to their emotions overwhelming regular cognitive functioning.People with this disorder often see others in “black-and-white” terms. Depending upon the circumstances and situation, for instance, a therapist can be seen as being very helpful and caring toward the client. But if some sort of difficulty arises in the therapy, or in the patient’s life, the person might then begin characterizing the therapist as “bad” and not caring about the client at all. Clinicians should always be aware of this “all-or-nothing” lability most often found in individuals with this disorder and be careful not to validate it.
Therapists and doctors should learn to be like a rock when dealing with a person who has this disorder. That is, the doctor should offer his or her stability to contrast the client’s lability of emotion and thinking. Many professionals are turned off by working with people with this disorder, because it draws on many negative feelings from the clinician. These occur because of the client’s constant demands on a clinician, the constant suicidal gestures, thoughts, and behaviors, and the possibility of self-mutilating behavior. These are sometimes very difficult items for a therapist to understand and work with.Psychotherapy is nearly always the treatment of choice for this disorder; medications may be used to help stabilize mood swings. Controversy surrounds overmedicating people with this disorder.
Like with all personality disorders, psychotherapy is the treatment of choice in helping people overcome this problem. While medications can usually help some symptoms of the disorder, they cannot help the patient learn new coping skills, emotion regulation, or any of the other important changes in a person’s life.An initially-important aspect of psychotherapy is usually contracting with the person to ensure that they do not commit suicide. Suicidality should be carefully assessed and monitored throughout the entire course of treatment. If suicidal feelings are severe, medication and hospitalization should be seriously considered.
The most successful and effective psychotherapeutic approach to date has been marsha linehan’s dialectical behavior therapy (dbt). This treatment was originally developed to help chronically suicidal individuals. Dbt combines crisis intervention support with other intervention practices that are theoretically grounded in eastern meditative and acceptance-based philosophies. Research conducted on this treatment have shown it to be more effective than most other psychotherapeutic and medical approaches to helping a person to better cope with this disorder. Dbt focuses on helping the client build skills in acceptance and tolerance of intense negative emotions as a means to take better control of their lives, their emotions, and themselves. In dbt, the therapist and client are expected to build a relationship where the therapist can help the client start to bridge the gap between “emotional” and “rational” interpretations of their world.
