Teenage Pregnancy - How To Deal With Stress And Trauma?

Teenage Pregnancy - How To Deal With Stress And Trauma?

If your teenager finds out that she is pregnant, and will be having a baby soon, it is a very difficult situation to cope with. Teenage pregnancy is associated with intense stress and trauma in both the girl and her parents, and family. It is important for you to realise that teenage pregnancy can be okay, based on good and wise decisions. You should seek all options at hand, and discuss them with people you trust. There are several coping methods for dealing with the stress, trauma, and difficulty of teenage pregnancy. They are as follows:

Keep in mind that it is okay to be overwhelmed

  1. A flood of emotions is likely to flow through your body on finding out that your teenage daughter is pregnant.
  2. Your mind has to be set for facing several challenges which lie ahead. You have to go ahead.
  3. It is okay to feel upset, but avoid showing it in front of your daughter.

Be supportive

  1. You might be upset and angry, but you need to realise that your daughter is scared and alone.
  2. She needs you by her side during this phase more than ever. Your child’s health has to remain relaxed both physically and mentally during pregnancy.
  3. Do not make your daughter feel shameful as it will worsen the trauma. You need to make her understand that you are with her to figure out some kind of solution.

Ask your daughter what she wants

  1. It is important for you to ask your pregnant teenage daughter about what she wants, and you should respect her wishes.
  2. Your daughter has to be comfortable with the choices you make regarding the pregnancy.

Give her advice and help her in exploring options

  1. Instead of forcing your opinions and views on your daughter, you need to lead her to beneficial resources and support centres.
  2. It is important for your daughter to make the best decision, without a lot of influence over what has been decided.
  3. Explore the available options with her and point out the various pros and cons.

Teach your daughter the skills required to become independent

  1. While you have to help your teenage daughter emotionally, financially and in many other ways, you should also teach her the ways of becoming an independent self sufficient adult.
  2. If she decides on having the baby, it is very important for her to learn to take care of the baby and deal with all the issues that are likely to be faced.

It is also recommended for you to take your pregnant teenage daughter for therapy and proper counselling. These are also important for her to cope with the trauma and make the best decisions.

Do you really have a memory problem? you may have concentration problem as you are constantly thinking of all these things which you mentioned. You may be suffering from low self esteem due to all these experiences. Stop feeling inferior because your friends are teasing you. Friends tend to do these nonsense things. The more you get disturbed by it, the more they will do it. Do not give them the pleasure and satisfaction of disturbing you. Firstly ignore them or be assertive in defining your limits. Clearly tell them that you don't like it and you will not tolerate it further. And most important is that you be fine with what you did as a child. As a child many people make such foolish mistakes, have a sense of humor about it. Don't be so embarrassed about it. It is ok and completely fine making such foolish mistakes as a child.

10 Reasons Why You Should Quit Smoking Right Now!

10 Reasons Why You Should Quit Smoking Right Now!
Smoking is less socially acceptable these days. Most workplaces, shopping malls, theaters and stores prohibit smoking.

Many government entities are enacting laws to ban smoking from all indoor public places, including bars and restaurants. However, despite all these steps, this very expensive habit is still prevalent in society.

Mostly people start smoking as teens, and they are addicted by the time they reach adulthood. There are many different reasons why people smoke. They can start out of curiosity, peer pressure, a desire to fit in with a group or look older and mature, or even to rebel.

It can also be influenced by parental example or used as a means to reduce stress and feel more relaxed. In some countries like the united states, the impact of advertising and media is waning as governments have restricted such practices, but it continues in many parts of the world.

According to the centers for disease control and prevention, an estimated 43.8 million americans smoke. It is the leading cause of preventable deaths in the u. S.

Smoking kills more people than obesity, substance abuse, infectious diseases, firearms and traffic accidents.

There are about 600 ingredients in cigarettes that when burned create more than 7, 000 chemicals. Some of the most harmful chemicals released in cigarette smoke are nicotine, tar, carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, formaldehyde, arsenic, ammonia, lead, benzene, butane, cadmium, hexamine, toluene and lots more.

These chemicals are harmful to the smoker as well as those exposed to secondhand smoke.

This habit is very difficult to break. Even when cutting down on cigarettes, you begin to go into a withdrawal phase and experience a variety of symptoms like headaches, fatigue, irritability and nicotine cravings.

But there are many reasons to quit, not the least of which are improving your health and saving your hard-earned money.

Whenever things goes against my wish I get angry and want to kill that person. What to do.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I understand that you get angry when things go against you but to want to kill at that time is grossly wrong. You must check out where this level and kind of anger comes from. I suspect it is from your childhood. You should meet with a counselor and do some anger management classes. Anger should be expressed always but in appropriate ways only. Anyway, you must do vigorous exercise everyday and that will expend the energy and leave you with the memory to deal with. You will also need to check whether you are acting angry when you are really scared. In that case you are escalating anger over the fear to cover it up. This will not deal with the fear and you will need to investigate that and deal with that instead. It is not advisable to ‘ruminate’ over this feeling as it will feed into an impulse and you may lose control over that and do something inappropriate. None of the feelings are to be controlled. The way you express them has to be appropriate. Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands; scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. Unexpressed feelings will hurt you back by clinging on to a favorite organ and troubling it enough to cause it to malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. You can also hand over the feeling to God, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too. All feelings must be expressed without exception.

Sir when I am working on computer I miss the alphabet for example at 2, 4 min I forget that which alphabet is called a. Same things happen with numbers. My expression are change immediately. And I also can't sleep long time. I wake up 4 5 time on night bt I m feeling so tired. I am thinking so much without any connection and limitations. Is this symptoms for depression. What I do ?which kind of doctor I contact.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It could be depression if several other symptoms connect. Go to a counselor first and let that person determine if you need to meet with a psychiatrist for medication. If this is a recent phenomenon, then it could be treated early with the prognosis really good. Please do take your parents with you to meet with the counselor and carry all the information about you, from prenatal days till date, including up to your grandparents. If there was any telling event either in your life or that of your family history, then there is a genetic concern that has to be factored in too. The missing numbers and alphabets may not be serious all by itself, but could be of much concern if it is linked to any disturbed condition in you. You can nip it in the bud, if acted upon early.

Dear Roshan. The duty of your mind is to think. If you allow your mind to think without control, it will uncontrollably think and often wander into negative territory. The best option is to be creative and busy. Engage yourself in creative activities and sports. Along with that, learn to talk and think positive. Please consult a psychologist online for counseling, advice and therapy. Take care,

I am loosing my presence. Last one month my temper is high when I take tens so what can do is this condition.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Losing temper shows inability to control emotional turmoil and manage negative feelings like anger. You cannot avoid stress or tensions in life but you can learn how to manage situation which make you angry But that is a gradual process of learning, where you learn anger management through behavior techniques Till then try methods of relaxation like meditation, yoga etc that can help you relax when you are angry

Alcohol Addiction And Its Effects!

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Alcohol Addiction And Its Effects!

While consuming alcohol in small amounts has its health benefits, using alcohol as an escape from daily social and work pressures could lead to harmful effects. Consuming alcohol more than the body can endure can pave the way for devastating health conditions, including permanent damage to the liver. 

1. What is alcohol addiction? 

When a person becomes so dependent on alcohol that it becomes difficult to function without it, the condition is called alcohol addiction. Untreated alcohol abuse can progress dependences to an addiction to alcohol characterized by physical dependence and/or inability to stop despite serious consequences. Once they begin drinking, alcoholics have little to no control over the amount they consume. 

2. Signs and symptoms of alcohol dependence are as follows: 

  • Significant hangovers and increase in time needed to recover from after-effects of alcohol use. 
  • Increased amount of alcohol consumed because of increased tolerance; or, decrease in the effects of alcohol use without substantial increases in the amount consumed. 
  • Reduced attention to personal and professional responsibilities. 
  • Repeated unsuccessful efforts to reduce alcohol consumption. 
  • Withdrawal symptoms when unable to consume alcohol. 
  • Continuing to consume alcohol despite knowing its harmful effects.

3. What are the short-term effects of alcohol addiction? 

  • The short-term effects of alcohol consumption above a specified level differ from person to person, depending on the age and weight of the person, and whether the alcohol has been taken on an empty or full stomach. 
  • Though the short-term effects of alcohol are pleasant in the first place, they may lead to poor concentration, diminishing reflexes, lack of coordination and many other conditions which may lead to slowing down of the important activities of the brain. 
  • It may also lead to emotional and psychological changes, sleep disorders, drowsiness, slurring of speech, nausea and vomiting. 
  • The short-term effects of alcohol are further amplified when it is consumed along with certain medications. 

4. What are the long-term effects of alcohol addiction? 

  • Daily consumption of alcohol for a prolonged period of time can lead to death of cells in the brain, causing nerve damage, eventually leading to poor mental and physical functions.
  • Alcohol addiction causes damage to the liver, and leads to a severe medical condition called cirrhosis, where the liver is required to be transplanted.
  • It may also lead to pancreatitis, which is a dangerous inflammation of the pancreas. 
  • When the body becomes tolerant to high doses of alcohol, consuming alcohol no more leads to short-term effects of alcohol. The condition, commonly referred to as tolerance, may lead to total dependence on alcohol in case of some individuals. 

If a person has become addicted to alcohol, he/she would keep on drinking regardless of the mental and physical effects of alcohol. It may also cause relationship troubles, a steady drop in sexual performance, loss of job, and many other devastating outcomes. Therefore, it is crucial to opt for treatment while the situation is under control. Otherwise, it may affect all aspects of a person’s life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

I am 21 year old. And I been hurted in my head a year ago when I was travelling in a car so a big jerk came and the car jerk on that so my head was hurted from the car roofs and that time it was just the pain for hours. But after a week it started creating problems like I feel that my concentration and memory level is been decreased. It has been year passed what should I do. It could be a blood clot or what.

Hi. It's unlikely that the impact would have created memory loss for you. If you are worried about there being blood clot then it's better to get checked/scanned than to live in speculation. Visit a neurologist and discuss your concerns.

Smoking can affect your appetite. Muscle gain is ideally attained with exercise and a proper diet. If you have hyperthyroidism, then you will have a problem gaining weight. Then there is the possibility that your level of metabolism is higher than normal due to many factors one of which is stress. So it is worth meeting with a counselor and talking about the stress and leading a more composed life.

Hello, There are many aspects of depression, the more of them you have the more likely you are to have a clinical depression. Some patients feel severely depressed and suicidal. If you have these feelings you should go to the emergency department immediately. Other things that people with depression can feel are sadness, low energy, lack of motivation, poor sleep, irritability, weight gain or loss, poor self image and sometimes even a lack of touch with reality. The more of these symptoms you have the more likely it is that you have serious depression. Treatments for depression include medications, counseling and exercise. Again the more of these you do the better your chance for a successful treatment. Good luck to you,

Indecisiveness signifies significant underlying anxiety. So please tell me, do you feel worried all the time about about multiple issues ranging from day to day small problems to slightly bigger ones also? how is your sleep? in addition loss of self confidence also signifies anxiety. Now the solution to anxiety problems is a proper course of medicines & certain lifestyle changes ranging from as simple things as meditation & daily 30 minutes jogging to more complex things as structured diary writing, thought recording etc. But for all these to happen, you first need to describe your symptoms in detail so that I can give you proper help & a fast relief. Good luck!
