All About Impulse Control Disorders

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist

A certain psychiatric condition, which causes a person to be functionally impaired in social and occupational settings is known as Impulse Control Disorder. Most of you are granted with the ability to think before you act but it isn't the case for people suffering with such a condition. People diagnosed with this condition are not able to withstand the urge to do something detrimental to themselves or other people.

This condition is similar to other disorders such as kleptomania, compulsive gambling and pyromania to name a few. Although people suffering from this disorder do not plan their acts, the acts they do perform generally fulfill their conscious wishes. Other disorders of such similar nature like Kleptomania and ADHD, which are associated with difficulty in controlling impulses but that is not their chief feature. Patients of impulse control disorder find it highly distressful and are hence often seen to lose control of their actions and consequently their lives.

What causes this disorder?
Some medical practitioners are of the opinion that this disorder is a subgroup of other conditions, such as stress, anxiety, OCD and etc. Scientists and researchers are not particularly sure what causes this condition but have determined that it can be caused due to a combination of physiological, emotional and psychological factors pertaining to cultural and societal aspects. Also, certain brain structures linked to emotions and memory functions in and around the frontal lobe are linked to planning functions and impulses.

Some studies show that certain hormones such as testosterone which are associated with aggression and violence may also play a role in forming such disorder. Aggressive and violent behaviors are apparent in people suffering from this disorder. Certain studies have shown a connection between certain forms of seizure disorders and aggressive impulsive behaviors.

People with such disorders are also more likely to contract addiction and mood disorders. Antidepressants are usually prescribed in treating such disorders.

1: Drink hot water with lemon: make a cup of hot water with fresh lemon juice part of your morning ritual. As you hydrate with h2o, the lemon works to balance your body's ph and aid in healthy digestion.
2: Sweat it out: beyond weight-loss goals, a quick cardio session at the gym builds the sweat, which helps your body eliminate toxins. If you have access to a sauna or steam room at the gym, even better! a little extra time in these facilities after a solid workout will help you sweat, detox, and purify your body double time.
3: Eat more produce: keeping your diet consistently clean and full of natural, unprocessed foods is one of the most effective ways to detox every day - and a clean diet is full of fresh veggies and fruits. Be sure to incorporate detoxifying produce that supports healthy liver and kidney function like cabbage, beets, and leafy greens.
4: Try yoga twists: yogi superstar tara stiles puts it best ' twists just get things moving' your digestive system and all your internal organs reap benefits from twisting postures that put your body in positions it's not used to. Build your own internal heat with a detoxifying yoga sequence full of twists and strength-building postures.
5: Cook at home: eating out at restaurants should be an occasional treat - not an everyday occurrence. Cook at home to have complete control of the healthy ingredients going into your meal. You never know what restaurants toss into the mix with flavor - not health - in mind. Check out these detox recipes for kitchen inspiration.
6: Sip on green tea: overstimulating with loads of coffee can leave you feeling anxious and unfocused, so swap out your second cup of joe for antioxidant-rich green tea. It's high in catechins, which speed up liver activity and increase the production of detoxification enzymes.

I love her but she has died. Now at that instant I feel alone without her can you tell me what I have to do.
We all know it is a really tough time when somebody close to you has died. It's important that you know how to move on with your life. It may seem difficult at first, like you're never going to stop missing them, but you have to move on. It's essential. For some people, the grieving process will last a couple weeks. For others, it will take years. Don't allow others to tell you to feel a certain way. It's okay to be angry, sad, or despaired. However, it's also okay to feel happy, and to let go when you're ready. Get support. Even if you are not the type of person who normally shares their feelings, it is important to recognize that opening up is not a sign of weakness. Talking to others will help you heal by easing your emotional burden. Talk to your friends and family. They will probably want to help you, but they may not know how. Let them know what you need. It's okay to have alone time, but do not shut people who love you out. Turn to your faith. If you're religious, draw comfort from praying, meditation, or other rituals. Talk to people in your religious community for support. Establish new routines. The death of a loved one will bring about many new responsibilities. In addition, the old day to day tasks will change emotionally. It may be beneficial to eat dinner at a different time, shop at a different grocery store, or take a different route to work. However, you should avoid making any life-altering decisions (i.e. moving or changing jobs) directly after your loved one has died. You do not need this added stress. Accept your feelings. While you may think that you can outrun grief, you can't hide from it forever, and postponing it may lead to mental and physical health problems. The best way to move past it is to accept that it's there. Express your feelings in a way that helps you, be it writing in a journal, getting involved in an organization, or making a scrapbook. Look after yourself physically. While emotional reactions are expected after a death, there are also physical symptoms to grief. Loss of appetite, nausea and stomach pain, intestinal upset, and sleep disturbances/loss of energy often present themselves when someone is experiencing grief. By taking care of your body, you will also help heal your mind. Do your best to get enough sleep and eat right. Exercise is a good way to help increase your ability to sleep and eat. In addition, it causes your body to produce endorphins, which will help lift your mood. Avoid using drugs or alcohol to "numb the pain." The pain will eventually wane, but it is important to realize that this takes time. Do not get frustrated with yourself if it takes longer than you want it to.

How to improve concentration Focus on the task at hand: If talking with someone: ask questions; if reading a book or a report: ask yourself how you would summarize what you just read to a friend or to your boss. In general, avoid and/or eliminate distractions. Tune out every­thing else. The harder the task, the more impor­tant it is to tune out dis­trac­tions. Do not try to double-task, this will increase your errors and divide your attention. Attention is limited. When you try to do several things at once, you necessarily have to divide your attention and thus concentrate less on each individual tasks. Use meditation. Several studies have shown that meditation can be a good brain training tool that affects especially attentional / concentration skills.

Cyclothymia as you now know , is a condition where a person has fluctuating highs and lows. If we were to be critical about ourselves , most of us would fall in this category. The issue is not so much about labeling ourselves, as it is to make the best of what we have. When you are 'high' it means you are energetic, alert and most productive. Utilize this phase to finish things that you always wanted to do - plan, execute and feel nice about your accomplishment. 'Lows' means your energy level is low, don't particularly feel like doing anything. Enjoy this state, without guilt, relax and use this period to rejuvenate. No one can perform at the same level everyday - every day is a different day. Study your energy patterns and plan accordingly.

Try to start your day early in the morning. Write down the things that you want to do during the day, and follow that routine. Have healthy food and on time. Have plenty of water. You need some physical exercise, like walk, jog, run, cycling, gym, yoga. Choose whatever you like and do it. This will help you in releasing your stress and when the body is tired it will help you in having a good sleep. It appears that you are having lots of tension/stress. Please try to analyse the causes and contributing factors of your stress. Try to search for best options to reduce this stress. Share your emotional burden with family and friends whom you trust. If all this does not help then talk to a counsellor who will help you in understanding and managing stress which will result in you having peace of mind and getting required sleep. All the best.

Your stress is of a high level. This shortage of sleep portends serious repercussions for your health, let alone your business. You must be aware that many businesses do not last for various reasons. If you have to cut your losses and shut down the business for another, do it fast and consult a professional. Sometimes the location may not be suitable, the business may have run out its course, new approaches and competition can all put you out of your venture. Change is the only constant in life: innovate or perish. Passivity is criminal to the situation. Do something, even if it wrong. Try many options before you settle with the right one. But get on with your life, and soon too. Your sleep will return to normal levels and your health will not be threatened.

Codeine addiction is worsened by increasing tolerance levels for the drug. If you are having a serious addiction and you cannot quit its use, you will have to admit yourself to a rehabilitation center and go through their program for a complete recovery. This type of treatment is ideal because it takes you away from the influences of people and circumstances that you have gotten conditioned to and will make it easier in a different geographical location. When you come out of the center you must continue with addiction counseling for three years at least before being free of the enslavement. You will also need to attend NA meetings regularly and get a lot of support from other users who are also recovering. You will need to make some lifestyle changes and work on the stress that is normally the reason most youngsters get addicted to codeine. There is also the oral issue, the rigid value system, the genetic factors, and the script issue that has to be worked upon with the counselor. You will need to start regular vigorous exercise, sleep well, and start on a healthy diet. You must follow a tight time schedule with interesting and productive activities. The counselor will also teach you new ways of finding joy without the use of chemicals. You should socialize with people, join new groups, attend conferences, meetings, seminars etc. to be involved with other important activities in your neighborhood. You will need to go for a thorough medical checkup and determine that there was no serious damage to your body because of the abuse.

You may not be depressed per se but you certainly are hurting very badly because of this guy you love. I think that your expectations of this fellow may be too much for him, or it may not be normal. You also may be trying too hard to make him into something that you want. You cannot do this to people you love. You must give them the freedom to be what they are and to love the person for what he is. If you try to change him, then you will start controlling. Now nobody likes that. In fact, if he did that to you, you also will feel stifled and sooner than later you will want to dump him. You have heard it said, ?If you love someone, let them go and if it is meant for you, he will return. Do you have that kind of faith? I don?t think so. This could be entirely your problem. I would imagine that even if this boy wants to change to please you, he may be getting so angry that he will willfully not do what you want him to do. So then that will make you angry too. Now, how can such a relationship work out? Also think, if he knows that you behave in this manner, will he want to spend the rest of his life with you? You may be quite insecure and afraid to want to control another person like this. This is not love. Talk to a counselor and learn to deal with your insecurities to be a better girlfriend. Never hurt yourself any more. Remember that you must love giving the other person his space, and you will have a better relationship. If you cannot do that, then you need help. I am not suggesting that the boy is good or bad. I am telling you these things because you have told me what you are going through. I don't know him well enough to judge him anyway.

Doctor give me Alprazolam. 0.25 for anxiety disorder. My question how much I take this medicine. Three time a day.
Alprazolam is a good anxiolytic, but carries high dependence potential and serious cognitive and behavioral side effects when taken on a longer run. It is advised not take them more than 14 days. There are other medications e.g SSRI's which can be safely taken for longer duration in anxiety disorde. I am sure the doc who prescribed you this alone is not the apt specialist. Psychiatrist are the right people for you to consult for Anxiety disorder, consult one and get remedy. All the best.

You could be under some form of stress. If you meet with a counselor and get that taken care of a lot of hair fall may diminish. Anyway, everyone one of us will lose hair to the extent of 75-100 per day, whether we like it or not. They are however also constantly replaced as you keep growing. There are however some bad habits that we do as youngsters that may increase hair fall: like combing your hair too often, pulling at your hair too strongly, shampooing everyday especially with strong and highly chemically based shampoos, improper diet, stress, not massaging your scalp (you need to gently do circular massage with your finger-tips everyday to strengthen the roots), is natural cleansers like shikkakai powder, liquids etc. Less exposure to direct sunlight, less use of hairsprays, hair gels, styling creams, and so on. You could also have a genetic factor inherited from your parents that will cause excess hair fall and baldness. You must also exercise regularly, sleep adequately, and eat well from the list below of good food for prevention: carrots, prunes, green peas, oats, shrimp, walnuts, eggs, chicken, low-fat dairy products, spinach, sweet potatoes, lentils, strawberry, oranges, papaya, blueberries, lime, kiwi fruit, mango, melon, broccoli, winter squash apricots, green and red peppers, millet, barley, wheat, cucumber, rice, bean sprouts, asparagus, black sesame seeds, garlic, cabbage, onions, turnips, lettuce, brussels sprouts, kale, seaweed, dry fruits, liver, salmon, tuna and oysters. Wow, that is indeed a good and exhaustive list.
