You must both seek professional help immediately. This is no marriage and it looks like there are a lot of points of contention. If there is any reluctance to seek help, then you may have to proceed with divorce. First, make sure that all the possible avenues to solve the problem have been adequately exhausted. Perhaps, both the families can be brought together for the counseling. Communication is very important in marriage and wherever there are two and more people. If this is nonexistent, there is guaranteed to be discord and breakup.

My daughter is mr child she is 30 yrs her iq level is 80% from last few months she does not like to eat any type of food, she sits alone in a corner & keeps on crying. What shall I do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Since she may not be in a position to communicate properly, take her for a full medical check up to rule out any other condition that may be causing this situation. If that is clear, then take her to a school for the differently enabled and meet with the doctor there who is qualified to communicate with her and find out what might be the reason for her change. You mention nothing about the mother, is she around? did something happen in the family recently that might have affected her so? her own awareness will not be of the best level. Normally, in such circumstances, the other house members are more alert to her developments and may know something that you are not aware about. Kindly make some inquiries to get more details. The feeling she displays may be right but the reason may be suspect and for that someone who knows her well will be able to throw some light.

This is because you have been encouraged to always smile even if you wanted to cry. This has now become your pattern and is uncomfortable now. Counselling can help you to respond to different situations with the appropriate emotion and also weigh the pros and cons of your actions if you are not smiling always. You will feel a lot more connected with yourself and lead a fuller life when you accept yourself in total. Please click on private chat for a personal session.

Quick Tips to Reduce Stress and Anxiety

Quick Tips to Reduce Stress and Anxiety

You may feel there’s nothing you can do about stress. The bills won’t stop coming, there will never be more hours in the day, and your work and family responsibilities will always be demanding. Stress and anxiety negatively impacts your health as it makes you prone to diseases, the most common ones being high blood pressure and diabetes. Yes, you have more control over stress than you might think. Stress management is all about taking charge: of your lifestyle, thoughts, emotions, and the way you deal with problems. No matter how stressful your life seems, there are steps you can take to relieve the pressure and regain control.

There are many ways by which you can deal with stress:

  1. Identify the sources of stress in your life- It’s easy to identify sources of stress following a major life event such as changing jobs, moving home, or losing a loved one, but pinpointing the sources of everyday stress can be more complicated. It’s all too easy to overlook your own thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that contribute to your stress levels. Sure, you may know that you’re constantly worried about work deadlines, but maybe it’s your procrastination, rather than the actual job demands, that is causing the stress.
  2. Eat healthy, eat right- Make sure the meals you eat are nutritious and well balanced. It is essential that the foods should be a wholesome mix of carbohydrates, protein, fats, Vitamins and minerals. Focus mostly on whole foods rather than refined foods and include plenty of vegetables and fruits in your diet.
  3. Give peace a chance- Meditation, when practiced on a regular basis, has been shown to cut down stress levels significantly. It helps in restoring your emotional well-being and increasing self-awareness.
  4. No more glug glug- Although a glass of some good old red wine or Chardonnay twice a week definitely lifts your spirits, excessive alcohol consumption and making it a habit you cannot do without can mess with your brain and cause panic to set in once the effects of alcohol wear off. Apart from all the other serious health complications, it is known to aggravate stress and anxiety once the “high” of alcohol recedes.
  5. See the lighter sides of life- Try to see the lighter side of things in life; remember everything in life doesn’t warrant seriousness. Realize that you can’t control each and every thing, so stop trying to and just go with the flow.
  6. Reach out! Be in the thick of things- Talk to people, volunteer or play team sports as these can help uplift your mood and make you feel better. It acts as a support network that can help you manage stress.
  7. Get moving- Physical activity plays a key role in reducing and preventing the effects of stress, but you don’t have to be an athlete or spend hours in a gym to experience the benefits. Just about any form of physical activity can help relieve stress and burn away anger, tension, and frustration. Exercise releases endorphins that boost your mood and make you feel good, and it can also serve as a valuable distraction to your daily worries. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist and ask a free question.

Hello sir/mam I am 24 yr old. I think I am suffering schizophrenia, I checked all my symptoms and got this result.Please suggest me about how to bear/tackle.

Schizophrenia is a serious psychiatric disorder which should be diagnosed by a trained mental health professional and would need to be treated. The earlier the better. Please don't indulge in self diagnosis - go see a psychiatist

Try to drink three cups of chamomile tea a day when you're feeling anxious. Chamomile contains two chemicals that promote relaxation. Eat 2 cups celery, onions, or a mixture of the two, raw or cooked, with your meals for a week or two. Both vegetables contain large amounts of potassium and folic acid, deficiencies of which can cause nervousness. Keep a diary to track -- and then eliminate -- events that might trigger anxiety. Also make note of foods, as some of the things you eat may be responsible for the symptoms. Indulge in noncompetitive exercising, such as walking, bicycling, or swimming. It's good for you, both physically and emotionally. Meditate, pray, or indulge in a mental flight of fantasy. Do whatever it takes to give your mind a break. Breathe in, breathe out. Slowly, deeply. This is relaxing. Chat with a friend, a psychotherapist, a clergyman. Talking about your anxiety can relieve it. Make a mental list and check it twice. It doesn't matter what's on the list. This is simply an exercise in repetitive thinking that can distract you from what's causing the anxiety.

Dear lybrate-user, sorry to hear that. I know it s tough. When we lose someone we all go through the process of mourning and grief. You might want to read more about it on this website http://psychcentral.

I am 37 years old as I am suffering depression for negative thought which frequently has been coming since a long time.

I am 37 years old as I am suffering depression for negative thought which frequently has been coming since a long time.
Depression can be treated with medicines, psychotherapy or both, depending upon your preference and severity of symptoms. A lot depends on whether you have had previous episodes and additional history of other medical problems, bipolar disorder in yourself or family and other medical problems. Since you are reporting symptoms for a long time, it is imperative that you get a proper consultation and treatment. I can straightaway suggest a few antidepressants here like escitalopram, sertraline, fluoxetine, venlafaxine, mirtazapine and many more, but without this background information, it can create unnecessary problems. I hope you realize the gravity of the situation. It is best if you could meet a good psychiatrist in your locality in person. Take care!
