Good Morning ~ It is not unusual in south INDIA for men to get married to their cousins (i.e. Your maternal uncles daughter or your paternal aunts daughter), however a relationship between you and your cousin sister (i.e. Your maternal aunts daughter and your paternal uncles son) are forbidden in south INDIAn HINDU culture. If you believe that you can fit into these cultural traditions I recommend that you consult your elders in the family for the same. I hope you feel better with the solution to your problems. If you continue to have any issues or questions, please let me know.

I love a guy who has been engaged by his parents to a widow girl with his consultation. But he loves me and I too love him. To save good memories to our life, we decide to go on a vacation for 2 days just to forget everything around us and just be like we two together. Planned everything but still I am in a confusion whether what I am doing is good/ethical? I feel like cheating my parents to whom I gave the belief that I will never go wrong at any point of my life. Please advise what should I do! Can I carry out my plan with boyfriend with whom I can never get a chance to spend time with or I need to lose this?

I Don't have any habits related to smoking or drinking. I don't drink coffee and tea either . I am well built with moderate height of 5.8 . My sexual perspect is good too . My problem - when I get angry, I go berserk. No matter what's in my hand, I use it to throw it away in anger . I never beat women but when I get angry I get so tensed that I beat myself with whatever I have in my hand . My flow of words is also kind of shaggy when I speak during the anger mode . No proper flow of sentence in other words . I get very very arrogant, angry and mad when someone tries to harm my loved ones especially. It's as if someone has occupied my body is how people tell me when I am in anger . Anything that you could help me with in order to stop this problem?

Unless you make up your mind, nothing will work efficiently as expected. You have to choose every time whether you want to get agitated or be patient and behave properly. You have realized that when you get angry you lose your sense of balance and later regret because you make a fool out of your self! its just a matter of time that you can overcome most of your problems provided you have a sincere willingness to change. You can write down your thoughts and reactions in a diary and analyse where you go wrong every time you get angry. Give yourself some time (may be a few months to slow down.) your friends and close relatives can give genuine feedback if you ask them to tell them the truth about your nature. Homeopathy can work wonderfully if a proper case is taken. Till then, work on the few suggestions that I have given.

I easily get angry on small small things but why my nature has drastically change after marriage.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
If you have started getting angry after your marraige, if this is what you mean then.. it may be due to moving to a new place, leaving the comfort of your known environment and friends and family. Adjusting to new life, taking much more responsibilities etc. all might be creating lot of pressure on your. and when under stress being angry is a very normal respose. As you havenot given much details it is difficult to give you situation specific response. but you may try follwoing stress management and resilience building tips for few months and you will see the difference. When things does not happen as we wish or people do not behave as we expect that is when out of disappointment, frustration, loneliness, anger, sadness. Etc we react and our mind starts thinking negative thoughts. Changing this pattern of responding to stressful situation requires both persistence and patience. Also you will only be able to work on this out of love and kindness towards you. Strong motivation will go a long way. Writing a statement about how would you want to respond in a similar situation and how will your life and your happiness will change if you do learn to manage your stress and how to respond to it. Once that is clear. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and 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. This 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. Let me. Know if you need any further help. Hope this helps wishing you very best.

Dear lybrate-user ji, first of all believe in god and have patience, these bad days will pass definitely and again you will feel the joyful days with your family - have faith in your destiny. As per your medical problems - go for a complete detox of your body with the help of ayurveda's panchakarma therapy. It includes abhyangam (massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. This wud rejuvenate your body - improving your work efficiency and bettering your sleep. It will also strengthen your nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of your body - cleansing your body. Also take shirodhara which would completely take the stress out of your body and you will feel light, fresh and full of energy. Strictly avoid all junks, oily -spicy food, pickles if you r eating, drink lots of water, juices or daily have fresh fruits. Try to keep your bowel clear.

Steps To De-Addiction!

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Steps To De-Addiction!

Addiction is the absolute dependency on a particular substance or situation. Substance addiction includes a variety of substances apart from alcohol and drugs. Examples include porn, food, chocolate, nicotine, etc. Situation addiction includes gambling, shopping and sex among others. The problem in our society with addiction is it is treated like a choice than as a major problem faced by an individual. De-addiction is the process of ridding the individual of his dependence on certain substances or activities.

Process

  1. Rehabilitation psychology studies the process of de-addiction and helps addicts blend with the normal lifestyle. Rehab centers offer several forms of therapy to reduce substance usage.
  2. Group therapy is always the go to form of therapeutic technique to deal with cases of addiction owing to the common feeling among users that people who aren’t addicted and do not know what they’re going through. In those cases, it is rather important to have support from a group of people who are exactly where they are.
  3. Family therapy is also essential to make the individual know how their loved ones feel and also remind them of the unconditional support. Some rehab centers also use the horse therapy (focuses on interaction with horses which facilitates emotional and occupational development in patients) which is rather interesting to witness.
  4. In addition to therapy, rehab centers teach life skills and cooperation. Apart from all this, drugs are also prescribed to deal with addiction along with the weekly scheduled personal therapy sessions.

Although an unfamiliar concept in India, halfway homes are the next step after the rehab. The individuals learn different skills and ways to manage themselves outside the house while still continuing their therapy. This is done to make sure one doesn’t relapse right after the rehabilitation has been completed. Most rehabs also suggest support group meetings. Even otherwise support groups are extremely effective in the de-addiction process. ‘Alcoholics Anonymous’ and ‘Narcotics Anonymous’ are two of the most widely managed support groups around the world.

Addiction is an immense issue which has spiraled out of control in today’s times. However, it is necessary to understand it isn’t the question of the individual’s morality. The removal of labels and stigma is essential in the entire process. Support from loved ones is an extremely important step towards de-addiction, right after the acceptance that one is addicted. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.

I am 29 years old, I am smoking from last 12 yrs, so please suggest how to quit and overcome its side effect. As of now having high BP problem.

DNB, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Smoking is a huge risk for lung cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, accounting for more than 75 percent of all deaths from these disorders. Smoking doubles the risk for cardiovascular disease deaths, but, because this disease is more prevalent, it accounts for as many smoking deaths as cancer and lung disease. The third major cause of tobacco-related mortality is chronic obstructive lung disease. Other common smoking-related diseases include low-birth-weight offspring, perinatal complications, other cancers (e. G. Throat, bladder, and pancreas), and ulcers. Second-hand smoke increases the risk of cancer and heart disease in spouses and the incidence of respiratory and ear problems in children. The tar in cigarette smoke is responsible for the cancers. Irritants and ciliotoxins appear to be responsible for lung diseases. Carbon monoxide and clotting factors appear to be the most likely causes of cardiovascular disease. The role of nicotine in cardiovascular disease appears to be much smaller than previously thought, and how many perinatal problems (including sudden infant death syndrome) are caused by carbon monoxide or by nicotine is debatable. Smokeless tobacco, pipes, and cigars cause oral cancers, especially when accompanied by heavy alcohol use. Cessation of smoking almost eliminates the risk of heart disease in 5 years and of lung cancer in 20 years; however, the benefits of cessation are highly dependent on duration of smoking. Measure the magnitude--Taking 10 puffs per cigarette × 20 cigarettes per day × 365 days per year × 20 years results in millions of drug self-administrations. Cessation of smoking almost eliminates the risk of heart disease in 5 years and of lung cancer in 20 years; however, the benefits of cessation are highly dependent on duration of smoking. If you wants to know more details on how to quit smoking. Let me know.

Addiction of cigratte. How I can do something for my uncle. How he can get rid of addiction of cigratte?

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear, Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. The best method is to leave it and continue with your uncle's will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If your uncle is ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support he need, he can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse abuse?no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless he feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that he has a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for his actions isn?t easy. But it?s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. He should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who will follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, your uncle need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with his psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

To improve memory, it's important to destress often by way of exercising, relaxing, meditation, holidays, playing sports, dancing, playing music etc. Whatever suits you and relaxes you. Also eating brain healthy foods to help the brain think clearly, remember and reproduce at the right time. For this you will need to stop junk foods like maida, high sugar and fatty foods, processed foods, cold drinks. Brain healthy foods are good quality proteins, omega 3 fatty acids in fish, poultry, eggs, vegetables and fruits. Nuts and oilseeds are a rich source of this. Your brain also needs vit b 12 to function well. Make sure that you have enough of this in your diet. If you have any stress in life and don't get good sleep then you will tend to forget. Counselling is an excellent way to work through your stress and learn coping and managing skills, tips and techniques and feel more confident and in control of yourself and your environment.

Hi, as your son is in his" teens" which is very crucial time period for him, there are hormonal fluctuations which he is going through and at the same time, you do have to guide him properly so that he shouldn't get spoiled in bad company. The important point here is, you should have patience and a good communication with him, just break the ice and make friends with him so that he could able to confide in you and start sharing the things openly with you. But listen to him patiently even if he is going in wrong direction because building up that faith and confidence in you will let you hold his hand and take him in the right direction!

I am 29 years old and have been occasionally (avg once a month) experiencing severe anger outbursts since last two years in which I lose control of myself, often directing violence towards my life partner. I do not have a clue why is this so. I have not observed this tendency before. What should be the way forward?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Kindly get your anger evaluated and treated by a psychiatrist. I have given some anger control tips, if they do not work, kindly consult without delay, 1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Timeouts aren't just for kids. Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Does your child's messy room drive you crazy? Close the door. Is your partner late for dinner every night? Schedule meals later in the evening — or agree to eat on your own a few times a week. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse. 6. Stick with 'I' statements To avoid criticizing or placing blame — which might only increase tension — use "I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. For example, say, "I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes, instead of, "You never do any housework. 7. Don't hold a grudge Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation. It's unrealistic to expect everyone to behave exactly as you want at all times. 8. Use humor to release tension Lightening up can help diffuse tension. Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though — it can hurt feelings and make things worse. 9. Practice relaxation skills When your temper flares, put relaxation skills to work. Practice deep-breathing exercises, imagine a relaxing scene, or repeat a calming word or phrase, such as, "Take it easy. You might also listen to music, write in a journal or do a few yoga poses — whatever it takes to encourage relaxation. 10. Know when to seek help Learning to control anger is a challenge for everyone at times. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.

I am 36 years old unmarried girl. I am having depression, anxiety and stress from last 9 yrs. I feel lethargic all the time. When I wake up in morning after 6-7 hours sleep, I feel lethargic. I sleep for 1 hour after taking tea in morning. After that I do breathing exercise to relax my body and mind. I do meditation for 15-30 mins also. After breathing exercise I feel relaxed and at ease. Is this normal to feel lethargic in morning? I am having lethargy due to depression or stress or lack of sleep or due to poor blood circulation or lack of oxygen in my body? How can I know the reason of having lethargy? Please give me advice.

Feeling worse in the morning is one of the hallmarks of depression. I would strongly recommend you to see a psychiatrist. 9 years of stress is a long period and will have (if not already) impact on your heart and brain also. If you do not want to take medicines, psychotherapy can be done. But I really think it is high time you did something about this.

Hi lybrate-user, these methods can help alleviate the symptoms of stress and anxiety, especially if used in conjunction with traditional methods, and are helpful tools to have in your box, next time you're feeling overwhelmed. 1. Circuit breaker - Get your mind off the problem, it's not going anywhere, but you can. Take the dog for a mini walk. Revisit your funniest emails. Take yourself to a yoga or Pilates class. Meditate. Listen to your favourite song. Google a beach in Tahiti. Make your self a cup of herbal tea. 2. Avoid caffeine - Caffeine is a stimulant that increases adrenaline in the body, the very hormone you are looking to reduce. Avoid coffee (decaf is OK), colas, guarana, chocolate, and more than 2 cups of tea daily. 3. Eat small meals often - Maintaining steady blood sugar levels is key to stabilizing mood. Ensure you have a small meal every 2-3 hours that contains protein. For example, a hard-boiled egg and lettuce, some almonds, a can of tuna and brown rice. 4. Breathe - The more anxious you become, breathing becomes shallower and higher in the chest. Consciously lengthen your breath, breathing deeper into the belly. Count to three on the in-breath, and four on the out-breath. 5. Talk to yourself - Affirmations are positive, self-affirming messages to self. In the case of anxiety, calming and positive is required. Try "All will be well" or "I always cope, just breathe and relax" 6. Tell someone who cares - Phone your mum or a friend. Acknowledging you are finding a situation stressful, and being heard and understood by someone who cares for you, even if they can't physically help, will reduce stress levels. 7. Cocooning - In the moment you feel totally overwhelmed, gently place both palms side by side on your face, fingers gently resting on your closed eyelids. This can help centre you, give you a momentary break and quieten the mind, until you feel more centred and ready to face the world again. 8. Seek help - If anxiety and stress has become a significant part your life, seek help from a psychologist or counselor, stress is their specialty. You don't have to do this on your own - remember, it's a sign of strength, not weakness, to seek help. Hope this helps, Good Luck.
