Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Alcohol addiction also comes under abuse and addiction. If you’re ready to stop the substance and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from addiction and abuse —no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill 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 addiction. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Take care.

It's been over one year since I have started feeling low from time to time. I have also been living alone all this time and now a days do not feel like talking to most people. Have mood swings (don't know if it because of irregular periods, got my recent period after 6months). I also have destructive thoughts in mind sometimes and have wondered about life too many times. I don't like to sleep at night and don't get sleep also, in the morning I don't feel like waking up. I stay and work from my flat mostly. Watch TV series and work. Don't feel motivated for most of the things I used to. What can I do to be happier and energetic?

Dear , I have read your question and understood it well. I can understand your suffering. With all these symptoms most probably you are suffering from a depressive episode. Depression is a common psychiatric illness which is characterised with sadness, preference for being alone, social withdrawal, lack of enjoyment in pleasurable activities which used to be pleasurable earlier, reduced energy, reduced appetite, low desire for sex, disturbed sleep, negative view of future, guilt, low self esteem, reduced confidence and suicidal thoughts. Depression causes lots of personal suffering and socio-occupational dysfunction. It is treatable. Already you have suffered a lot. I suggest you to consult a psychiatrist nearby who may assess you further and may prescribe antidepressant medication like ssri for few months for cure.

Dear Nagarjun. Welcome to lybrate. If your concentration is less towards your studies, you should address your interest level and positive attitude level. Your concentration level will be higher when you are passionate and interested in your studies. Also search Google for "effective learning methods" and use some of those methods. Consult a psychologist online for counselling. Take care.

Sir I am suffering in dementia but nobody is trusting me & people are treating me like a mad. I have consulted a neurologist of apollo hospital hyderabad but he has tried to hide the things for mmy good sake saying that I am just in depression and now my legs are getting heavy and weak gradually. I lost my memory ability upto 70% so my fluency also got down as you can observe from my writing.

Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Dementia is an old/middle age problem. Memory loss at your age, will NOT be due to dementia. Probably your neurologist is right in saying, it is depression. He is NOT hiding dementia. After 2-3 weeks of Stalopam (antidepressant - not sleeping pills - take it in the morning itself) and betacap, get back to him. He may adjust the dose depending on your memory abilities and fluency. Or he may refer you to a psychiatrist for better management of your preoccupation of dementia.

My husband's marital affair. i am depressed since 17 year. I take madicine fludac20mg. Please guide me ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I know that this is a very painful blow to your trust and self-image. If this had happened 17 years ago but is not being repeated, you must forgive him for your own sake more than for him and learn to carry on in life. You are living in misery and on medication, while the perpetrator (your husband) may be living quite comfortably, unperturbed. It does not make sense to continue your suffering because of him. Take life into your hands and prove to yourself that you are greater than these events. Your lingering in the past can only make you worse. Meet with a counselor and talk about your feelings and problems regularly until you are out of it completely. Then do regular exercise, socialize and make new friends, join a club, do some courses, live life well. Learn, through therapy, to love your husband for who he is now, and consider his misdemeanor an aberration under some impulsive influences. If you live with him, live well or live not with him at all. You must not remain in a painful situation when there are so many different things that you can do besides. Have him take you out for trips, tours and small outings and live a new life with him but with pleasure. The therapist will certainly help you with all this. In my opinion you could even come out off of the medication, if you leave all this to the past (where it really belongs), and make a new beginning.

I am 32 years old and have mental illness for past 6 years. Doctor says schizophrenia. I can't understand. I take medication but many side effects, can't continue. I can't control my emotions, can't continue job. Help me, how I recover from this illness?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Schizophrenia is a very complex and difficult disease to treat, even with medication. All psychotropic medicines have side-effects: that is inescapable. But I suspect that you are depending entirely on medication when in reality you need to combine it with counseling or therapy. In therapy you will learn a lot of coping mechanisms and techniques to remain functional and lead a close-to-normal life. You will also learn about emotions and how they can impact your condition adversely. Expressing emotions in an appropriate manner will equip you for life. Talking and sharing about the the many disturbing thoughts and learning to understand yourself and moderate your responses will go a long way towards normalizing and training your mind. Exercise must be a regular part of your life for various reasons. Put yourself on a productive and strict schedule. The idle mind is the devil's workshop for sure, and more so for a schizophrenic.

Often I got irritated on small things. I too become angry very quickly. M I in depression?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Some of the" typical" responses to frustration include anger, quitting (burn out or giving up), loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, stress and depression. Anger management: 10 tips to tame your temper anger: there is a saying" frustration begets anger and anger begets aggression. Direct anger, is expressed toward the object perceived as the cause of the frustration. If a machine does not work, you might hit it or kick it. If someone gets in your way, you could verbally threaten them or push them aside. If the source of the frustration is too powerful or threatening for direct aggression, displaced aggression is often used. The aggression is redirected toward a less threatening and more available object. An angry person often acts without thinking. The person has given in to the frustration and they have given up restraint. Anger can be a healthy response if it motivates us to positive action but all too often the actions we engage in when angry are destructive. Indeed, if we could see a videotape of ourselves getting angry, the humiliation might well help cure us of anger. When you feel frustration building, you have to practice learned responses that lead to healthy actions instead of destructive ones. Giving up: giving up on a goal can be productive if the goal is truly out of reach. However, more often giving up (quitting or being apathetic) is another form of giving in to frustration. When repeatedly frustrated, people can drop out of school, quit jobs, or move away. Apathy is giving up all of your goals, so you cannot be frustrated by trying to reach them. We live in difficult time and we have to be persistent in order to accomplish. Consider how many projects you began, and then gave up, because you became frustrated and lost patience. Make a list of things you started and quit because they seemed too difficult. Now calculate the disappointment and loss you suffered by not dealing with the frustration in a more healthy way. Try to remember that quitters never win, and winners never quit. Losing your temper means you're a quitter. Loss of confidence: is a terrible frequent side effect of giving up and not fulfilling your goal. A loss of self-confidence and self-esteem, means that if we quit once, then the next time we plan a goal, we may not be able to accurately assess our ability to carry it out and we stop trusting ourselves and our own abilities. This became a self-fulfilling and self-destructive attitude. You need to be able to learn that when the going gets tough, you say to yourself" it is worth it! and by following through, it not only gets the job done, but it builds self-confidence. Stress: is the" wear and tear" our body and mind experiences as we adjust to the frustrations our continually changing environment. Too frequently, extreme, or prolonged frustration and stress strains us and generates distress signals. Our body experiences distress signals in a variety of ways, often in the form of: irritability, anger, fatigue anxiety, headache, depression, stomach aches, hypertension, migraines, ulcers, heart attacks, or colitis. Depression: depression can affect almost every aspect of your life. It affects people of all ages, income, race, and cultures. Depression can affect the way you eat and sleep the way you feel about yourself, the way one think about things, and the way you interact with others. While we all feel depression at various appropriate times in our lives, excess or inappropriate depression cannot be easily dismissed or wished away. Other reactions: abuse of drugs & alcohol is self-destructive and usually futile attempt at dealing with frustration, as are many eating and weight problems and addictions whenever the immediate effects of the addictive behaviour wear off, users find themselves back in the same, or even worse, frustrating situation. Learning to deal with frustration.

What is the remedy if a person is not willing to accept the reality/truth.Let me give you the example : if a person knows that his own brother & sisters are exploiting him/her either emotionely as well as monitery and they will go to any extent but the person is not willing to accept the fact how can this problem should be solved

I don't know what your investment in all this is. If you are not a loser or have no stake in all these manipulations, just let it be. The truth will eventually prevail, even if they succeed in deceptively taking over the wealth and whatever. If you are directly going to be impacted, meet a lawyer to know what can be done to preempt any deception as a precautionary measure. You may talk to the parents only in these people?s absence, which may be near impossible. But if you took them away for a vacation or to your home for a break, it is then possible to find out how much they are really aware of being manipulated, and whether they have been intimidated, or are they suffering from loss of awareness as a psychological or medical reason. They could be living in fear for all you know, and their age may make them feel obligated to the point of avoiding fearful repercussions. In that case you must take legal recourse and safeguard them and their wealth.

Dear lybrate-user. I can understand. Possessiveness is irritating. You think you are being over possessive. I suggest you are in actual love with your body friend. But you must understand, the more possessive you are, the more is the chance that you lose him. No one likes possessiveness. Concentrate in your education or else immediately get married. Take care.

My mother is suffering from schizophrenia I am visited to doctor but not getting relief could you suggest me any thing.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Try another doctor, and there is no way she can manage without medication. At her age this disease can be quite crippling and difficult for her too. What she needs to do is to go for counseling along with the medication. She must be put on a tight time schedule of activities too. She must be occupied but not busy: occupational therapy is highly recommended. Anything that attracts her attention is normally good for her. Always keep her mind engaged with outside distractions because otherwise she will go internal where all the craziness lurks. Once she goes internal she can get locked in and getting her to relate to the external world thereafter will become near impossible. Ideally she should be around people who will interact with her. Sometimes these methods can actually relieve her of many symptoms of the disease. Exercise is an integral part of her daily routine but it has to be suitable to her age and physical condition. Remember there is no cure but getting her to become functional as much as possible at her age is good for her and the family. This will be an on-going exercise and everyone must pitch in, be patient and kind, yet firm. Any passive state will encourage degeneration.

I have to study hard . At times I feel too sleepy and restless. What should I do please help.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
It is very common to experience fatigue when you are studying long hours. It depends on the amount of rest you are getting as well. Sleep deprivation as well as lack of sleep or insomnia may lead to concentration difficulties and problems with memory or ability to remember what you have read a well. Restlessness and irritability are also common symptoms of poor sleep. I believe you should take scheduled breaks and adequate amount of sleep (about 6-7 at the very least) to be able to study towards becoming successful. I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!

My girlfriend is psychologically hurted & not stable and I am not able to direct her the right path. Which makes me over think about everything near me. Please tell me how can I help her. Her parents hurt her likw anything. because of which she is in depression & takes everything negatively. And gets more into physical activities so she feels relaxed as said by her. I cant see her like this. Is there any psychological solution or something that can be done to make her stable?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
This is really wonderful that you want to help her at your age! I suppose she is younger than you and so I suspect that she is going through the last phase of her adolescence. This may last or may have already lasted two years only. After that it will subside but she should have resolved a lot of the problems of parental abuse by then. Otherwise she will carry all the negative traits into her adult life and then when it starts to degenerate, things could get bad. I therefore suggest that she talks to a counselor and see what that person can do in the circumstances. If that person wants to meet with the parents then that must happen too. You have to be patient and loving to her through all this. She should not feel rejected by you under any circumstances. In fact she may inadvertently try to make you reject her but you must not buy into that easily. After she resolves the issues she will be truly worth the wait and she will be able to love you passionately. She is right about her exercise: when she does vigorous exercise the energy of the anger will be expelled and she will feel a lot calmer. But this is a temporary solution and the more permanent one lies in sorting out the feelings she has accumulated over the years. You must be by her side and help her through all this. But I like you and may your tribe increase.

I have had health anxiety for over 6 months now. I been to various doctors but all say everything is ok. I was so upset I decided not to go to doctor anymore. But one day I started vomiting whatever I ate. Had a checkup and an endoscopy as well. Doctor said everything is fine. After few days my legs started feeling very weird. They use to get numb when I cross them in less than a minute. I decided to treat it on my own. So I dint go to any doctor. Eventually that went away. But my foot developed unsightly bulging veins. Now I am worried about bulging veins so much. Everybody around me freaks out when they see my foot. Please help!

Hi. There are actually two parts in your narration. Bulging veins is a surgical problem. For that you need to visit Surgeon. It seems you get worried excessively on trivial bodily disturbances which is a Psychiatric condition. There are people whose sensory nervous system have low threshold. There are ways to deal with this. Psychiatrist can helpyou in this matter.

Are you the responsible, motivated, organised and the helpful type of person who is surrounded by immature, irresponsible, demotivated people around you who suck the energy out of you? This combination is often seen in close relationships and workplaces. You would have done everything to bail them out of trouble but they still remain as irresponsible as ever. This can be very frustrating and tiring for you. And if you leave them their life will just fall apart. This worry doesn't leave you.

Dear , at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

Stress Due to Work

Partners in Health
Multi Speciality, Gurgaon
Stress Due to Work

Stress in mechanics is a load, pull or force or a system of forces producing a strain. In life, any event or situation that produces a strain therefore induces a physiological strain.

At work place, a system of forces work to produce desired results which more often than not produce a state of strain or makes an individual's life stressful. But the consequences of chronic stress are not just on individual health and well being but on the organizations as well. This affects the productivity and competitiveness. When an organisation faces a challenge, the flight or fright reaction ensues leading to increased threat perception, alertness and activity. In short term, it can improve productivity, but in case a state of threat is perpetually present like in case of a team led by an anxious or high strung individual, it produces chronic stress leading to lowering of performance. More often, sources of stress at work place are poor communication, unclear roles, discrepancies in expectations and skills, insecurity and sudden and significant change in work structure , to list a few.

Sources of Organisational Stress

  • Poor communication

  • Unclear role / objectives

  • Change

  • Role conflict (project management)

  • Career uncertainty/stagnation

  • Over / under promotion

  • Lack of training

  • Social or physical isolation

  • Unrealistic deadlines / targets

  • Travel

  • Lack of control over decisions

  • Inadequate supervision

  • Lack of feedback on good performance

  • New technology

  • Work overload / underload

  • Long working hours

The nervous system of an individual facing work stress due to any factor will react by producing a flight or fight response with ensuing physiological and/or psychological changes. These changes produce behavioural effects which if prolonged can be identified as signs of stress. While physical effects of stress lead to higher sick leaves, accident and absenteeism, psychological effects cause high anxiety and irritability leading to lower performance, disturbances in interpersonal relationship and more mistakes and miscalculations due to disturbance in concentration and self confidence .

Signs of rising stress:

  • Disturbed sleep

  • Loss of pleasure in things once enjoyed

  • Appetite changes

  • Irritability and impatience

  • Tiredness, lack of energy

  • Inability of concentrate, meet deadlines or make decisions

  • Increasing cynicism or loss of trust

  • Anxiety / panic attacks

  • Sense of losing control over events

Concerns over the effects of organizational stress on productivity, absenteeism and health related problems and consumption have substantially increased over past few decades. Employee health and well being are important assets to organizations and businesses. The Human Resource Department thus needs to watch for signs of stress in the employees and create an environment where the effects of stress can be mitigated. It requires understanding individual skills and deficiencies, clear and adequate communication, promoting an environment where deficiencies can be worked on without lowering self esteem or producing insecurity, encouraging support among team/staff members etc. On a personal level, individuals need to reduce stress by prioritizing their goals and following time management and self -fulfilment activities.

Ways to control stress


  • Agree targets

  • Review progress

Take control

  • Participate in decisions

  • Ensure travel commitments are reasonable

  • Update training

Make time for yourself

  • Allocate 'self' time

  • Pursue a hobby

Look after yourself

  • Exercise

  • Diet

  • Access support (Manager, Occupational Health / HR, Local agencies)

An in house counsellor who can maintain confidentiality and acts a bridge between the organization leaders and teams goes a long way in ensuring adequate stress management.
