Dear lybrate-user, your situation might be due to some event which had happened in the past and you might be feeling that you are being judged or looked by all when in social setting. This starts a cycle of anxiety and stress and not being able to speak and since it happens everytime, you stop enjoying social gatherings. You can take help of a psychologist who can help you in overcoming your fears and breaking this pattern /cycle and also go in for relaxation therapy to help in feeling relaxed in social situations.

How can I rid off from smoking And what are the side effects of sudden stop of smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
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 in the habit. The information is really scary but true. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat 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 chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine chewing gum or 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 will get easily agitated and develop a short fuse. If you used a nicotine patch a lot of these withdrawal symptoms will cease.

I am suffering with depression feeling like alone always how can I get rid of it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I am suffering with depression feeling like alone always how can I get rid of it.
At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.

If you also have depression, you, can relate to the gnawing, stubborn and heavy weight of guilt. Depression dampens a person’s reasoning and problem-solving functions. “This is why a person can feel unrealistically negative about himself, feel guilty or responsible for things that he might not truly believe if the depression wasn’t active.” 5 Tips to Help Chip Away at Your Guilt Of course, guilt isn’t something that simply dissolves with several quick fixes. But you can slowly chip away at your guilt. The below tips may help. 1. Move your body. Getting physical will lower cortisol, increase endorphin flow and awaken your senses.” It also helps people with depression think more clearly and feel better overall. 2. Shift your thoughts. “Feelings of guilt can set a depressed individual into a cycle of negative thinking; each thought worsening into a deeper, more hopeless frame of thinking. That’s why working on your thoughts is key. It is suggested to revise negative thoughts into positive thoughts or using positive imagery. 3. Remember guilty thoughts are not facts. It is helpful to remind yourself that your guilt is just a voice. “Once you say, ‘Oh, there’s the guilt,’ you can put some distance between yourself and the guilt.” 4. Try humor. Humor can lighten the heaviness. For many people with depression, guilt is a real and stubborn symptom. It manipulates the facts and exacerbates your mood. But while guilt can be persistent and overwhelming, it also can be managed and minimized. If you have any further queries feel free to contact. Regards, Sukanya Biswas.

Dear, quitting corex addiction is not child play. De-addiction therapy is an option for you. But in my suggestion, the best option would be, quit it now (today) and sustain it with your will power. Motivation therapy and mind power building therapy should help you.

I think medicines with intensive counselling in the form of MET and RPT will be needed. Depending upon the situation, either inpatient or out patient may be required. I suggest that you don't lose heart and give up. In order to help you better, I will need more details from you such as previous records and detailed description of the amount and nature of drinking behavior. Please revert back with these details. Take care! Remember that people with far worser situation get better! Don't worry!

Good Morning Mam, I am suffering from schizophrenia (schizo obsessive disorder), so can you suggest me diet to maintain the chemical imbalance in this disease.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Dear Mr. Lybrate-user I am assuming you have been diagnosed as schizo obsessive formally by a psychiatrist and on medication for the same. Please understand that the chemical imbalance in this case occurs at the level of the neurotransmitters in the brain. Currently there is no way of testing for the concentration of these neurotransmitters neither can these be affected by diet. However you must maintain a healthy balanced diet and avoid smoking or drinking.

Hi lybrate-user do practice mind full breathing exercise daily for 15 minutes. Close your eyes inhale from rose stomach should rise exhale from mouth stomach should go in. In between let the thoughts come gently bring your attention back to your breathing don't judge your thoughts. Need some cbt for negative thoughts.

There are many ways to tame your stress and keep it at bay. Here are 20 tips to tame your stress today, and keep the stress monsters at bay. 1. Perform diaphragmatic or deep breathing exercises. 2. Lie face down on the floor and begin breathing deeply and slowly, with your hands resting under your face. Do this for five minutes. 3. Sit in a reclining chair. Put a hand on your abdomen and a hand on your chest. As you breathe, make sure the hand on your abdomen is moving up and down rather than one on your chest. If the hand on your abdomen is moving you are breathing deeply and slowly. 4. Try progressive muscle relaxation or “deep muscle” relaxation. Progressively tense and relax each muscle group in your body. Learn the difference between muscle tension and relaxation. 5. Meditate. Use visualization or imagery to help you learn to be one with your thoughts. Sit quietly with your eyes closed, imagining the sights, sounds and smells of your favorite place, such as a beach or mountain retreat. 6. Exercise regularly or take up yoga. 7. Consult a psychologist about the use of biofeedback 8. Make time for music, art or other hobbies that help relax and distract you. 9. Learn to identify and monitor stressors. Come up with an organized plan for handling stressful situations. Be careful not to overgeneralize negative reactions to things. 10. Make a list of the important things you need to handle each day. Try to follow the list so you feel organized and on top of things. Put together a coping plan step by step so you have a sense of mastery. 11. Keep an eye on things that might suggest you’re not coping well. For example, are you smoking or drinking more, or sleeping less? 12. Keep a list of the large and little hassles in your day versus the major stressful events in your life. This helps you focus on the fact that you’re keeping track of and managing those as well as you can. 13. Set aside a time every day to work on relaxation. 14. Avoid using caffeine, alcohol, nicotine, junk food, binge eating and other drugs as your primary means for coping with stress. While they can be helpful once in awhile, using them as your only or usual method will result in longer-term problems, such as weight problems or alcoholism. 15. Learn to just say, “No” occasionally. It won’t hurt other people’s feelings as much as you think and is simply a method to be more assertive in your own life, to better help you meet your own needs. 16. Get the right amount of sleep. For most people, this is seven to nine hours a night. 17. Cultivate a sense of humor; laugh. 18. Research has shown that having a close, confiding relationship protects you from many stresses. 19. Don’t run from your problems! This only makes them worse. 20. Talk to your family and friends. See if they can help. If these tips don’t help, or you’ve tried a lot of them with little luck in better taming the stress in your life, it may be time to consider taking it up a notch. A mental health professional — such as a psychologist — can help teach you more effective methods for handling stress in a healthy way in your life. Such psychotherapy is short-term and time-limited, with a focus on helping you better deal with stress. Remember — we do have control over the stress and choices we make in our lives. It sometimes takes a little practice and effort to put some of these techniques into play in your life. But once you do so, you may be pleasantly surprised at the positive benefits you’ll receive

My daughter aged 9 yrs is having a low memory power and forgets answers at the exam hall. Please advise me the ways of boosting the memory power.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
She is probably having some anxiety during exams for various reasons. At this age, for her to experience exam fear means that there may be very high expectations from the parents, or she has a nervous disposition, or the portions are too much for her mental level, or there is some stress in the home. This is an age when she must enjoy school, and have a lot of time for play. In fact the very idea of doing away with exams for children is to reduce this kind of pressure. There is also a suggestion that children should not be detained in class in the early years of schooling. These are all measures to return childhood to our children and make life a lot easier. So I suggest that even if the school has these exams let your child perform at her pace and convenience. These pressures will tell on her psychologically and emotionally, later. Help her to read a lot and give her time to play. As time goes by you can work on improving her memory by reducing all the stress around her as much as possible. In the meantime get her puzzles, jigsaws, and little memory cards all with a play-way approach to make it easy for her and also to improve memory. Talk to her teacher about what is going on with her in school and she will enlighten you with some useful information.

You can go for a hypnotherapy session. It is mighty effective. Or else do this n. L. P exercise at home imagine you are sitting alone in a theater. Watching movie of your flying on the white screen once you've got your cinema pictured, imagine your" scary short film" up on the screen take the film and see it on the screen. Picture it. But let's make it black and white. And now make it blurry, so you can still see what's going on, but make less defined. Make it smaller. You still will be able to see it, but it needs to be smaller, so it doesn't take up very much of the screen. Finally, the film itself will be silent, with some loud comedy music playing or cartoon music. Now on top of everything put a image of yourself confident, as you are in doing your kind of work feel confident and laugh over it. Repeat it for 3 times. Continue until you get over with fear.
