Keep to yourself for some days. Don't try to struggle for the opposite. This too will pass. If you struggle against the" depression" it may last longer or else take a counseling session.

Signs of Severe Anxiety and Coping Mechanism

B.A.(H)Psychology, M.A.Psychology, Ph. D - Psychology

Signs of Severe Anxiety and Coping Mechanism

Do you have a habit of getting too anxious about minor matters? Is your severe anxiety hampering the smooth functioning of your daily life? Is anxiety giving you headaches, causing insomnia and making you paranoid? All these conditions imply that you are suffering from anxiety disorder. There are several types of anxiety disorders with various symptoms, and there are effective treatment procedures for curing them as well.

Signs and symptoms of severe anxiety/ anxiety disorder: The signs of anxiety disorder vary from person to person, but one common major symptom is severe fear, tension and worry even in petty situations.

Emotional symptoms:

The common emotional symptoms except fear and tension include the following:

  1. Feelings of great apprehension or a dread feeling
  2. Problem with concentration
  3. Feeling overly tensed
  4. Always anticipating the worst in any situation
  5. Feeling restless and irritable
  6. Watching out for danger signs in everything
  7. Feeling mentally blank

Physical symptoms:

Anxiety is much more than being just a feeling and several physical symptoms are observed as a result of the body's response to severe anxiety. The most common physical symptoms are as follows:

  1. A pounding heart
  2. Excessive sweating
  3. An upset or dizzy stomach
  4. Enhanced urge for urination and diarrhea
  5. Breathing problems
  6. Muscle tension
  7. Feeling twitches and tremors
  8. Severe headache and excess fatigue
  9. Sleeplessness or insomnia

Coping with severe anxiety:

In order to cope with anxiety disorder, you should follow these tips:

  1. You should connect with other people as being lonely or isolated may trigger your anxiety. Meet friends or join support groups. You should share your feelings with a loved one to ease the anxiety.
  2. You must start undertaking relaxation techniques such as mindfulness meditation, progressive muscle relaxation or deep breathing. These help in reducing your anxiety and make you feel relaxed.
  3. Regular exercise and work out is a natural stress buster and relieves anxiety. Practice different types of exercises strictly every day.
  4. You must get sufficient sleep as lack of sleep boosts your feelings of anxiety and tension. You should get nine hours of undisturbed sleep every night.
  5. You should reduce your intake of alcohol and caffeine products, which worsen your anxiety.
  6. You must train your mind to stay calm. The habit of needless worrying must be brought under control. You can undertake strategies such as creating a worry period, challenging the thoughts of anxiety and accepting uncertainty in life.

The self-help strategies for coping with severe anxiety can be quite effective. In some cases, fear and anxiety attacks become very severe and cause great distress in a person's life. In such cases, professional help is required. Certain behavior therapies can be undertaken for eliminating severe anxiety.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Fear about heights are called acrophobia. Acrophobia is an extreme or irrational fear or phobia of heights, especially when one is not particularly high up. It belongs to a category of specific phobias. This can be cured with the help of counseling and other therapies. Take care.

milk secretion can come due to various reasons even in a virgin lady. Your suspicion based on this alone is not warranted. But explain to her that ur not a medical person, as u rightly did apologize and bring her back. Find the reason for the excessive milk and get her treated. All the best

Hi lybrate-user, jab apne ye kadam uthaya to soch samjh kar uthaya tha. Aapko pata tha wo married hai and apa bhi married hai. Ek dusre ke life kharab karke kuch haasil nahi hoga, ya to aap apne wife aur wo apne husband ko divorce de, ye fir aap dono ek dusre ko bhul jaye. Ye sab cheeze apki zindagi per galat asar karengi. Suicide option nahi hai and aap kyu suicide kare. Ek psychologist se consult kare counseling ke liye.

Dear, anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks, take care.

Bipolar can be treated by Allopathy or homeopathic drugs? Which is more effective? Tnx.

Bipolar can be treated by Allopathy or homeopathic drugs? Which is more effective? Tnx.
In my humble opinion, allopathic drugs are the agents of choice for treatment of bipolar disorder. Lithium that you are on is among the best medicines for bipolar disorder provided it is prescribed in the proper dosage and monitored properly. In cases where lithium is ineffective, many other agents are available to treat this condition. Take care!

Bollywood Stars With Psychiatric Disorders

Bollywood Stars With Psychiatric Disorders

If you thought that fame and money are enough to keep a human being happy and healthy, then you could not be more mistaken. Mental and physical ailments can affect anyone at any time. Celebrities in particular are even more prone to mental disorders with their stressful lives that are centred around topping their past success with even more success, and filling their bank accounts with even more money.

So let us cast a glance on the Bollywood or Indian movie industry stars who have suffered from mental disorders:

  1. Shah Rukh Khan: After his shoulder surgery, Shah Rukh Khan went through a bout of severe and debilitating depression. This surgery had to take place due to an injury sustained on set during the year 2008. Depression and anxiety are known to affect people who have been going through chronic physical ailments and are forced to give up an overactive lifestyle. When this jet setting superstar was confined to bed, he fell into a state of despair and hopelessness. With the help of therapy and positive thinking, he was able to get back on his feet again and portray his charismatic persona on screen.
  2. Deepika Padukone: The dimpled actress recently came out in the open about her recent brush with depression and anxiety when she was busy promoting her blockbuster movies. She ended up going for therapy and taking control of the problem before it took control of her life. Once she had recovered from the overwhelming phase with proper therapy, she began to support mental health care causes so that more people would become aware and learn to take the necessary steps once they recognised the symptoms.
  3. Parveen Babi: She was one of the most beautiful actresses of her time who was also featured on the Time Magazine cover - a huge feat for an Indian celebrity at that point! Shortly after being diagnosed with depression and paranoid schizophrenia, she moved to USA. Overwhelmed with chronic depression and debilitating schizophrenia, she ended her life with suicide at her apartment in Mumbai.
  4. Sanjay Dutt: He may have played and aced the role of Doctor Munna Bhai on screen, but this actor suffered from insomnia and depression during his prison stay. The untimely demise of his mother and legal hassles followed by marital problems led to this state until he took the initiative to recover and get back to a normal way of living.
  5. Manisha Koirala: This well known actress suffered from acute clinical depression during her short marriage. With therapy and divorce behind her, she has started scripting her new life again.

These celebrities show us that we must take charge and bounce back no matter how profound the problem.

Taking two pegs of alcohol everyday is harmful or not ?

BHARAT JYOTI, MRACGP, INCEPTOR, MD-PhD, FIPS, Fellow of Academy of General Education (FAGE), DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist,
Alcohol per se has no nutrition value. Why do you want to consume alcohol, as there is a potential danger of accumulation of unused fat and excessive calories. /This may increase possibilities of future problems. Although alcohol helps reducing the blood clotting, it is advisable you can only try very low dose of Red wine, <30ml. But costlier to other and an tendency for increasing the dose and cost involvement and addiction related disorder later. I would advise stay away from alcohol. Instead if you have problem in clotting check it and try natural blood thinners.

He is going through depression & take so much medicines from 5year what he have to do.

MSC Psychotherapy & Counselling, CHt Hypnotherapy, MD Alternative Medicine, MBBS, Diploma in Public Health
Psychologist, Mumbai
He is going through depression & take so much medicines from 5year what he have to do.
In major depression medicines are necessary to take. But it is also useful to undergo psychotherapy sessions like cognitive behaviour therapy, clinical hypnotherapy or mindfulness. As when we have constant acidity we need to take the medicines to get it under control but strict diet is necessary to avoid future acidity problems. Similarly our mental diet is our thoughts. Because every thought creates emotion as a result of certain brain chemicals which we call neurotransmitters get released. Medicines take care of getting these chemicals under control. But if change our thoughts just like changing diet less of disturbed emotions and hence less chemicals get released. These therapies teach us the helpful way of thinking process. They deal with the core issues. Give us new way to look at ourself and the people around us. Mindfulness helps to break our habit of sticking to our past. Start him with these therapies and you will certainly see the results.
