Hi I am a student preparing for civil services and for the last 5-7 days I have been getting panic attacks, Couldn't sleep at night for 3-4 days continuously also crashed my vehicle as a result, many times it feels like my heart rate has increased very much, my body gets heated and begins to sweat even under cool weather all this while I am trying to sleep or study, my negative thoughts/insecurities/anxieties other than related to preparation have overwhelmed that I can't focus on my preparations. Further leading to frustration. Regards.

Hi I will prescribe some harmless but effective flower remedy available in homoeopathy shops. Try to buy original medicines. Mix 3 drops of rock rose + 3 drops of scleranthus + 3 drops of white chestnut + 3 drops of aspen. Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.

Panic Attacks

Msc - Clinical and Counselling Psychology
Psychologist, Bangalore
Panic Attacks

What is a panic attack?

Panic attack is a sudden onset of intense fear, or terror that occurs without apparent cause. Physical symptoms may include shortness of breath, palpitations or accelerated heart rate, chest pain or discomfort. Psychological symptoms may include a suffocating sensation or a sense of unease and lack of touch with reality. Once you have recognized the symptoms as a panic attack, here are a few techniques you can try:

  • Shift your focus:

Try focusing on a neutral object or person. Try focusing on a colour which relaxes you and focus on it surrounding you. Now try focusing on a silly word or something that makes you laugh. Notice how your focus shifts and how your body responds.

  • Imagine the positive:

Replace a negative state with a more positive one. Imagine a time when you felt confident, safe or calm. Imagine the sounds, tastes, views and feelings of that moment. Now submerge in that moment till your body relaxes.

  • Use these grounding techniques:

Look around you and identify:

  • 5 things you see

  • 4 things you feel

  • 3 things you hear

  • 2 things you smell

  • 1 thing you taste

Deep breathing:

Breathe in for 4 seconds then exhale all the way out. Now breathe in for 6 seconds, then exhale all the way out. Now breathe in for 8 seconds, then exhale all the way. Feel even the smallest muscles relaxing and continue breathing slowly.

These are pubertal feelings which usually upsurge at your age, do not seek a companion for these reasons. A companion for sharing one's thought and feelings can be more fruitful. Respect others as you want them to respect you. Masturbation occasionally is alright but do not make it a compulsive habit. Better concentrate on developing your career and personality.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Every person across the world will be in trouble if they started thinking about what you are thinking now. That is because there are no answers to these questions. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always end up in negative territory. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Take care.

I live with my 4 months old child, mother in law and my husband's nephew, my husband is out for work and comes once in 3 days. In his presence these people show that they help me so much But when he goes to office they do not offer me any help. I am handling my small child all alone. I feel overwhelmed with frustration. Almost going into depression. Also. I want to work for my child's better future. My husband works very hard that is why I cannot share much of my problems with him. My mother wants to keep the child so that I can focus on my career. But at the same time I am deep down with guilt. Please suggest me something. Thank you in advance.

lybrate-user Having a baby is a huge transition in your life. Every transition comes with lots of ups and downs and adjustments. The baby demands a lot of attention, and when you have to solely take care of the child, even doing the basic things as going to the washroom needs planning. Also, our hormones are undergoing changes and that adds to our processing of information and our moods. Having a child is the biggest blessing, but despite that in that span of 24 hours we long for some me-time. To help yourself sort all of this, it will be good to get some ground set. The idea is you can't change anyone else's behavior or opinions. But you can do a lot of changes in your own behavior. That is the only thing which will give you the power to deal with any situation. Your child is your responsibility. Grandparents, friends, relatives will play with the child, babysit them for some time but they should not and neither we should expect them to take care of the child like you do. Whatever help they offer to you be glad that they are doing so, even if it is only in front of your husband. Be grateful for it. Look for some other temporary arrangement who can help you with the baby. As you said, you wish to work for your child. You sure can start doing something, but as your child is 4 months only and it is recommended that you breastfeed your child for first six months. If your mother is willing to take care of the child while you work, then go ahead with it. You wish to talk further in detail, or if you feel you have low mood all the time, it is healthy to see a psychologist. It would be good for your well-being. A happy mother means a happy child. All the best.

I smoke too much so what to do to maintain low risk? And due to that I get exhausted too early.Please suggest me something for controlling that.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting a reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged on. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check-up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact, these conditions can exist all through the day, unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heartbeat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact, it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chew gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. At least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. You could also join twitter2quit program and enjoy its success to give up smoking.
