Dear lybrate user. Be self motivated. You know your qualification is less. You know people will ask for experience to give you good paid job. You know you have a big gap between plus two and degree. You know getting job is difficult and good salary is more difficult. Once you know all these things, you also know that worrying is of no use. If you don't know this, should know by now. There were reasons and justifications for whatever happened in your past. Nothing was your fault. Now get going. Do further higher study by correspondence. Get experience in the present job with low salary. I suggest you for counseling and motivation therapy. Take care.

Other than what Dr. Manjit said, you need to do better homework before joining any company specially the work ethics and atmosphere. Looking at your potential (as you said), you deserve nice growth and development with high profile. Move ahead with awareness. All the best.

Dear, please understand so many people go across the same situation. Love is such a thing. Don't worry. Never decide in haste. Now you are in disappointment. Any decision taken when you are in emotional trouble, is supposed to be false. I think two or more counseling sessions should be good for you. Please let me know if you are willing for telephone counseling sessions. Take care.

Dear Ms. lybrate-user, I went through your query in detail and can understand what you must be going through in life. The symptoms that you have mentioned are definitely suggestive of depression. Feeling tired, lack of concentration, feeling sad, anxiety, sleep disturbances, headache are all symptoms of depression. You should consider getting yourself evaluated by a psychiatrist and accordingly initiate treatment. Medications ad psychotherapy will help you in getting over your symptoms and recover from depression. Although you have not mentioned details about the particular incidents, I am sure talking about them to your psychiatrist will help. Talk to someone close daily to vent out your feelings. You can also consider writing a diary daily. Start exercising daily. I do hope that you are soon able to recover from your symptoms. Best wishes.

The goal of treatment of Bipolar disorder is not just quick relief from the current mood episode but to be able to prevent future mood eposides. Hence treatment doesn’t end after the remission of current mood episode but it is very important to continue the treatment for a long period of time (depending upon case to case...but at least one year) to prevent or at least reduce the risk of developing future mood eposides. This long term treatment is called maintenance phase. It is important to visit ur psychiatrist regularly as medications need to be adjusted/changed according to the phase of treatment a Bipolar pt is in. It is a delicate balancing act.

Better you do this. Sleep with legs raised up against the wall making 90 degree for 10 mins. This will relax your body and mind within 5-7 mins and make you sleep too.

I am smoking from last 12 years, my age is 30. I want to quit smoking for my better health. I tried quitting 2 times, once for 2 months and second time for 4 months in 2011. I definitely want to quit smoking and I want to consult a doctor before I start quit quitting. Please help me with your suggestions. I live in bangalore

You are doing well to want to quit. Having tried it already twice is what quitting smoking is all about: very rarely do people succeed in their first attempt. But persevere you must. When you decide, it must be done immediately and abruptly. Waiting another day will jeopardize the decision. Since you want to do it again this time I recommend that you seek the help of a counselor and do it with support. I guess you know all the harm cigarettes do to your system, which is why I suppose you are seeking to quit. But now you need to identify why you smoke: there is an oral need, the nicotine effect, the psychological effect of covering up some other issue, for style, to impress, etc. You may discover that the reasons may be unimportant at this stage because you have become too addicted and the habit has become compulsive. 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, for a little while. 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 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? like you are doing now. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction.

Dear lybrate-user, Of course it is your decision to take whatever treatment you wish to take. If you consult psychiatrists, they will prescribe according to their expertise based on evidences of many research work. You can take decision to go to psychiatrist or not. You can even take a decision whether to take her/his treatment or not. You can even take a decision of stopping treatment also. You are old enough and have the sanity to use your discretion. You can stop Pexep and try natural methods. If it does not work, please remember that psychiatrists and their treatment will always come for your help. The same doctor also will accept you, since most doctors know that some persons don't comply with treatment.

Hello Lybrate user the problem that you are may come from lack of connection with girls. You need to be friends with with and be nice to them. You do not require any medication as there is no pathology. You should do yoga and meditation which help you control your brain and thoughts. Take care.

Stress and infertility

Bachelors in Psychology, Masters in Psychology, Post Graduate Diploma in Guidance and Counselling
Psychologist, Jalandhar
Stress and infertility

It is not clear how exactly stress impacts fertility. It is not known whether high levels of stress can prevent pregnancy or affect a woman's chance of conceiving. We do know that reducing stress provides a better quality of life during times of intense personal challenge. 

What is stress? 

Stress is often defined as an event that a person sees/ feels is threatening. In order to protect itself, the body responds with a fight or flight response. How can stress impact a fertility patient? sometimes, infertility patients respond to the stress of being unable to conceive by aggressively pursuing treatment and procedures. Other patients withdraw and isolate from family, friends, and community. Neither of these extremes is ideal for patients who seek to treat their infertility and build a family. 

How can I reduce my stress? 

Having less stress in your life while pursuing fertility treatment may not, in and of itself, result in a pregnancy. However, developing better coping strategies to manage stress related to an infertility diagnosis and treatment can help you feel more in control and improve your overall well-being. 

It has been shown that stress does interfere with making rational and well-thought-out decisions. Reducing stress can allow patients to research, explore, and consider all the options available with a clearer mindset. By reducing stress, the pros and cons of one treatment course over another can be more effectively weighed and considered. 

Reduced stress is good for your health. While no one expects patients to approach fertility treatment stress free, finding ways to minimize stress while pursuing treatment can help. It is helpful for patients to look for ways to reduce the burden of infertility treatments and medical protocols. 

There are many stress-reducing techniques; some of the more popular methods recommended to fertility patients are: 

acupuncture 

aerobic exercise (may be reduced during treatment) 

collaboration with experts in stress reduction 

guided imagery 

journaling 

listening to music 

massage therapy

meditation 

mind-body groups 

mindfulness 

progressive muscle relaxation 

psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy 

self-help books

support/educational groups 

visualization 

walking/hiking 

yoga

 

How can I help my friend/loved one? 

Friends and loved ones are facing a challenge. Telling patients to be less stressed can make them feel more responsible for causing their own infertility and feel blamed. Telling someone to relax can cause greater stress. However, asking how couples/friends are doing and suggesting concrete and pragmatic ways to reduce stress will enhance quality of life and give the patient back some sense of control. For many struggling with infertility, just having friends/loved ones available for listening is greatly appreciated. 

The goal of stress reduction is to minimize, not eliminate stress, by finding the technique that serves the patient's needs the best.
