Dear Lybrate user, I can understand how negative thinking can disrupt many aspects of daily life. There are many ways to challenge negative thinking. Changing negative thoughts to positive thoughts takes time. One technique you can try is: Start with small steps and celebrate repeated small moments of positive feelings. This works better than looking forward to positive big life changes. There are many more techniques that are used in counselling in this regard. Please consult for further information. Good Luck.

I don't feel like eating and can't sleep whole night. My mood swings. I always get angry and can't concentrate in anything. Always tired and weak feeling.

If you want to really change then there can nothing holding you back. Just begin from where you are. Take one idea and start working on it. Write down all that you want to change and develop a plan/strategy so that you can confidently move ahead even if the mood swings a little! Have faith in yourself as you are going to appreciate yourself for all the struggle that you are taking now to change yourself. You will enjoy this challenge if you take it in a light spirit. Do not worry if you fail sometimes. Just be aware and learn from your mistakes. Commit yourself to excellence in whatever you do. Eat only healthy food ( more of fruits and vegetables ), exercise everyday for 1 hour and you will start feeling good soon. Sleep for 7-8hrs daily. Avoid all bad habits and learn or do some creative work that will boost your self-esteem. All the best.

Do head injuries result in behavioural changes? I got injuries on my forehead (prefrontal cortex area) when I was 12-13 years old and I think this resulted in my anxiety issues. I am very anxious since then as long as I can remember.

Hi it may lead to some personality changes. So your anxiety or behavioural changes may be due to head trauma or it may be independently. If it is due to trauma then it depends on type, severity and associated symptoms at that time. If you didn't have history of loss of consciousness, bleed through ear, nose or mouth then there is less possibility that all these changes are due to head trauma. Some time these things relates coincidently to other manifestation. Its best to get expert opinion for same. So please visit a psychiatrist to get proper help.

clonapax is plain clonazepam, which is a benzodiazepine. Your anxiety ideally should have been treated by an SSRI or SNRI, since you became dependent you having this withdrawal insomnia, it is advisable to get a 2nd opinion and get your anxiety treated along the lines mentioned above. All the best.

The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance, like your question seeks. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Now you may argue that it is the Government that is giving all the work. That is true in the overt sense, but if you look at it with spiritual eyes, you know that it is ultimately given by God. Secondly, build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques, which is all about expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. The diet includes eating foods with potential antihypertensive activity like fresh fruits and vegetables (amla juice, beetroot garlic and radish), whole grains, milk, etc and lowering the intake of salt and processed foods. : Probiotics, Bananas, Citrus fruits, Papaya, Berries, Avocado, Potatoes, Leafy veggies, Beetroot, Peas and beans, & Radish are all good foods for you.

I lost somebody last year and I'm very depressed I started smoking and I want ti quit smoking.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Smoking is not a treatment for losing somebody. Please try to stop smoking at the earliest. It has many health benefits in the long run. When you stop suddenly, you may get withdrawal symptoms like restlessness, irritability, lack of concentration, increased hunger, sleep disturbance, headache, impatience, anxiety, depression, etc. If you have them please don’t get back to smoking, take nicotine gum or lozenge or patch. They are available in all medical shops. You don’t need a prescription from doctors. Use 2 mg gum if you smoke less than 25 cigarettes/day. Use 4 mg gum if you smoke more than 25 cigarettes/day. First 6 weeks, use 1 gum every 1 – 2 hours. Reduce it in week 7 – 9 to one gum every 2 – 4 hours. In week 10 – 12, reduce it further to 1 gum every 4 -8 hours. By 3 months, you will be able to stop both cigarettes and gum fully without any withdrawal symptoms. Please feel confident that you can do it and give yourself some gift for doing it like vacation or books or new mobile. Smoking is a chronic relapsing condition like diabetes and B.P. So please don’t worry if you restart smoking. Start all over again to stop. You will learn the situations that make you smoke and avoid them. Please think of health benefits and money saved often. Plan how to avoid relapsing situations, like smoking friends, use of alcohol, stressful feeling or depression. Delay, drink, deep breathe, distract and discuss are the helpful tips. Increase of non smoking zones, gift yourself for stopping smoking. Even chewing cinnamon may delay. Please remember that the urge to smoke comes and goes like waves. Delay and see whether it goes away. It will be like a passing cloud.

I consume alcohol thrice in a week. what should i do to overcome form this problem?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

It does not matter when you feel like drinking, as long as you need your drink. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.
