I can't control my anger. After that I feel depressed. What should I do to be calm and happy?

Psychiatrist,
I can't control my anger. After that I feel depressed. What should I do to be calm and happy?
Hello lybrate-user it could be due to various factors as, impulse control problem, or covert depression. If you feel your anger is out of your control and you land up in trouble due to it, then you should take consultation on anger management. From a psychiatrist.

Hi Sir how to control the mind by using natural way I will not concentrate any thing at a time.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician, Alappuzha
Mind Control and some of its techniques. It’s a term that can have many meanings. Some people think of it as the ability to take control over the mind of other people. I prefer the meaning of controlling your own mind instead. It is the ability to understand and control your feelings, emotions and behaviour. As you do this you have full control of yourself and you can achieve many goals in your life. Also you will have great self-confidence which is the key to success. All the methods that are used for mind control have the same results. They bring you to a brain-state where you can reprogram your mind. Most of these techniques, when applied, require being active in order to affect you positively. The truth is that it is you making the changes and not the method you are using. The method just helps you reach the appropriate brain-state. Some benefits of mind control are listed below: o Develop Self-Esteem o Cure Fears o Quit bad habits o Become spontaneous and social o Fight Depression o Overcome painful situations Correct elements of your character o Change your reactions o Become more intuitive o The Silva Method I first read about Mind Control in a book written by Jose Silva. He has developed a method of mind control. This method is very simple and easy to follow. You just have to train your visualization skill (check my Visualization Exercises program) and to enter the alpha mind state, where you can change many things about yourself. The key is that in the alpha brain state your subconscious is accessible. The Silva method is based on the power of positive thinking. While you get into trance you start visualizing positive thoughts. As your subconscious mind is accessible you can pass these thoughts into it. This can have a dramatic effect on the way you feel. Self-HypnosisSelf-Hypnosis is a more general term for a technique that induces you into trance. Silva method uses a Self-Hypnosis technique to induce you into trance. While Silva method follows a standard path for the production of alpha brainwaves (click here for more info about brainwaves), Self-Hypnosis is any visualization technique that can bring you to the appropriate brain-state. While you try Self-Hypnosis you imagine things. You try to imagine and visualize as many details as you can. These details may be colours, textures, temperature, smells and generally whatever sensation you can think of. For example, an example visualization that can induce you very fast into trance is imagining that you are walking in a narrow path with dense vegetation at both sides and far in front of you there is a forest where you can hear birds or animals and the sky is clear with the Sun heating the top of your head. All these sensations that you imagine, as you try Self-Hypnosis, engage your right hemisphere and accelerate the production of alpha brainwaves. Usually, you can get into trance in a few minutes if you can stay in your imaginary place and feel as many sensations as you can. Well, the difficult part of Self-Hypnosis is to focus your thoughts on the magical place you are imagining. It’s too difficult to stay in just one thought at the beginning of your relaxation. Many different thoughts tend to go through your mind, as the alpha brainwaves are produced. You can think of it as if you are in a boring class room. At some point you stop listening what the teacher says, you feel relaxed and you start daydreaming. This is the desired state you want to be in when you try mind control. Entering the alpha state is a skill which you can improve by training. You might even become able to get into trance in a matter of seconds. After some time a deep breath will be sufficient to bring you into trance. There are many products online that can help you experience self-hypnosis. These are usually audio products like CDs or Mp3s. Their great advantage over the traditional method of self-hypnosis is that you are guided by a hypnotherapist. Thus, you can just follow the instructions and eliminate the multiple thinking distractions. I have tried such products and I can say they are very helpful. They make self-hypnosis easy, maybe easier than the Silva method. You just have to concentrate on the voice and do whatever you are being instructed to. You can of course try alone. Check my free Self Hypnosis Instruction for a complete guide. Another way of reaching and maintaining an ideal brain state for Mind Control is by using Brainwave Entrainment. Brainwave Entrainment Brainwave Entrainment is when your brainwaves are synchronized to external stimuli. This may be auditory, visual or both. There are special devices that are called mind machines and use both stimuli methods to synchronize your brain. But I have no practical experience with such machines. I will talk mostly about the auditory brainwave entrainment which I have also tested. There are three different technologies of brainwave entrainment. These are: o Binaural Beats o Monaural Beats o Isochronic Tones Whatever technology is used, the aim is one: to induce you into trance. Brainwave entrainment is a powerful way to reach alpha brain-state. You can go even deeper reaching theta or delta brain-state. At these states you can Control you Mind effectively. As long as a session lasts you will remain at the ideal mind state having plenty of time to do your changes. Another powerful way to get quickly into trance is to combine self-hypnosis with brainwave entrainment. Your brainwaves will synchronize to the stimuli and in the same time you will help the brain to drop its frequency by imagining things. I think this is the most effective way to reach the ideal brain-state for Mind Control. Controlling the frequency of your brainwaves is also Mind Control. If you are able to alter the brainwaves consciously then you control your Mind. You can become creative, relaxed, alert or sleepy on demand. If you have any experience with brainwave entrainment then please feel freeto post your stories in the comments area. Your contributions are of great value to mind expanding techniques. Active Mind Control Ok, let’s suppose that you reach the ideal state of the mind. What will you do next? It’s a good question if you don’t have a purpose. You are the only one who knows why you want to be in a relaxed state and influence your subconscious mind. You may need to change an annoying aspect of your character, like being anxious easily or being too sensitive. Then, after reaching to the desired brain state, you start imagining yourself how it would be if you had not these annoying elements. You observe your new character and affirming that you don’t have any more these attributes. You close your meditative session always with an action that confirms that you have a new character from now on. This action may be to pass through a door, to step on a particular shape on the ground, to plunge in a pool or anything you like. By doing this often, your subconscious mind gets the message and finally you change your negative behaviour. This is effective Mind Control and is active. There is also passive mind control. Passive Mind Control Passive Mind Control can be achieved using subliminal messaging. You don’t have to think of anything, you just have to listen to relaxation music that has integrated subliminal messages. Subliminal messages are affirmations that are included in the track you listen to and you can’t consciously detect them. Their volume frequency is below the limit that the human ear can perceive consciously. These messages go directly to your subconscious mind. Although, subliminal messages are supposed to be an effective way to change your mind set and control your sensations and feelings, there is a lot of discussion if they really do work. Some people claim that subliminal messages definitely affect them, others believe that subliminal messaging is based on placebo effects. Anyway, we will try and we will see. Another problem is that you don’t know whether subliminal messaging products are credible. As you cannot hear the hidden messages, you don’t know what they say. Don’t try products that you are not sure for their origin. Lastly, the disadvantage of subliminal messaging is that every session is limited to a unique action. For example, if you want to shut your mouth in order to lose fat, you will listen to a subliminal session for weight loss. There are no sessions where you can make multiple changes to your character at the same time. But, using any of the previous Mind Control techniques you are able to make as many changes as you want.

How to Deal With Epilepsy?

Internal Medicine Specialist, Gurgaon
How to Deal With Epilepsy?

Epilepsy is a relatively common disorder. Most cases of epilepsy can be controlled with a combination of drug therapy and healthy lifestyle. In some cases, surgery may also be advised. Epilepsy affects not only the lifestyle of the patient but also that of their caregiver. Each person reacts to epilepsy in a different way and hence the type of care needed also varies from person to person. While some patients have few seizures and require care only when they're having a seizure others need round the clock care. Here are a few tips to keep in mind if a loved one suffers from epilepsy.

  1. Know what type of epilepsy he/she is dealing with: Not all epileptic seizures are the same. Find out what type of seizures your loved one suffers from and what are the possible triggers associated with Involve yourself in their lifestyle. Epilepsy should not be a reason for your loved one to lock themselves in a room to stay safe. Participate in activities with them of you feel the activity may be a safety risk if they were to have a seizure; for example - swimming. 
  2. Notice seizure triggers: Often an epileptic patient may not remember the seizure after it has occurred. As their care giver, keep a seizure diary to track their seizures and its related triggers. Look for patterns in the triggers to their epilepsy attacks.
  3. Keep them safe during a seizure: When experiencing a seizure, the patient will lose consciousness, experience muscle convulsions and may grit his teeth. If the person is standing, hold them so that they do not fall. If they are lying down, try turning them onto their side. Do not put anything into their mouth.
  4. Take care of them after a seizure: After the seizure, people are most likely to be confused, tired and have a headache. Check for injuries and keep them calm till medical help arrives. Loosen clothing around their neck and ensure that there is nothing inhibiting their breathing.
  5. Medical identification: While someone who suffers from seizures often is likely to always have someone with them, others who have rare seizures may often venture out alone. In such cases, ensure that they always have medical identification on them. Also make sure that their friends, colleagues etc are aware of their medical condition.
  6. Help them maintain a healthy lifestyle: Staying active is essential for people with epilepsy. Avoid contact sports and pick low impact exercises like walking, running or swimming. Following a buddy system is essential when an epileptic person works out. If you wish to discuss on any specific problem, you can consult a neurologist and ask a free question.

It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone.

I am having anxiety at night cant sleep , thoughts are revolving in my mind . I am hvng this problem after my break up it has been 2 minths. I thought i wil get ok with time but its bothering me . I want to sleep but i cant .Tody i am having tremors also.

It has a lot to do with your break up. It is not easy to close a relationship, and there is always a fallout when this happens. It is worse, if it was done with a lot of bitterness. You need to do certain things that will help you to deal with the break up: you must talk about your feelings either to a counselor or to a close friend, you must get into an exercise regimen to tire yourself before going to sleep, you can take a warm bath before going to bed every day, you must have your dinner before 8 pm every day, say prayers before you sleep, sleep on your side most often, think of positive things before retiring, eat a pure carbohydrate meal at night, while lying down do some light breathing deep into your abdomen, make the room as dark as possible. Apart from this clean out all things that remind you of your boyfriend, and do not visit any places you two used to haunt in your hey days.

Sexual Pain - Is Stress The Cause?

MBBS, DGO, DNB
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Sexual Pain - Is Stress The Cause?

Painful intercourse can occur for a number of reasons – ranging from structural problems to psychological concerns. Women experience painful intercourse atleast once in their entire lifetime. The medical term for painful intercourse is dyspareunia. It is a persistent or recurrent genital pain that occurs just before, during or after intercourse. Physical causes of painful intercourse differ, depending on whether the pain occurs at entry or with deep thrusting. Also, certain emotional factors can also be probable causes of painful sex.

Entry pain: Pain during penetration may be associated with a range of factors:

1. Insufficient lubrication

Insufficient lubrication is caused by a drop in estrogen levels after menopause, after child birth or during breast feeding. Certain medications inhibit desire or arousal, decreasing lubrication and making sex painful. These include antidepressants, high blood pressure medications, sedatives and certain birth control pills.

2. Injury, trauma or irritation

This can be injury from an accident, pelvic surgery, female circumcision or cut made during childbirth.

3. Infection or skin disorder

Infection in the genital area or urinary tract can cause painful intercourse. Eczema or other skin problems in the genital area can also cause problem.

Deep pain

1.  Certain illness and condition

These include endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, uterine prolapse, retroverted uterus, cystitis, hemorrhoids and ovarian cysts.

2. Surgeries or medical treatment

Scarring from pelvic surgery can sometimes cause painful intercourse. Medical treatments for cancer, like radiation and chemotherapy can cause changes that make sex painful.

 

Emotional factors

1. Psychological problems

Anxiety, depression, concerns about physical appearance, fear of intimacy can contribute to a low level of arousal, resulting in discomfort or pain during sexual activity.

2. Stress and tension

You may have a million things to worry about in a day, but taking that tension to bed with you can lead to painful sex. Your pelvic floor muscle tightens in response to stress in your life. This can contribute to pain during intercourse.

3. History of sexual abuse

If you've had a history of some form of sexual abuse or are scared of sex, pain during intercourse because of your past experience(s) may be a possible cause for an unpleasant sexual experience in the present. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello sir I drink wine daily n I want to leave my bad habit so how can I do it. What to do.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, A key step in the best method to quit alcohol is to let people around you know about your intentions. This will help reduce the surprise they feel when they see you are not drinking. In turn, it will lessen their comments of surprise, which could catch you off guard and make you want to drink. Telling those around you about your plans to quit will also help give you a support network. If your friends and family know you are not drinking anymore, they will not offer you a glass. Even better, they will give you the encouragement you need to turn down a glass of wine at a restaurant or gathering. When you let people know your plans for staying sober, it also increases your accountability. Most people will try harder to succeed in a goal if others know about it. You will not want to be embarrassed by failure and will also avoid the feeling of letting down the people you love. 2) Another important aspect that you will learn about when in pursuit of how to give up drinking wine is to choose your companions carefully. If you have friends that have a glass or two of wine with every meal, you should definitely avoid dining with them at least for some time. Some of your acquaintances are responsible for the quantity of wine you drink by doing things like saying you should have “just one more glass of wine.” These are the friends you should avoid spending time with for the moment because they will make your road to recovery harder. In the beginning, giving up wine can be incredibly difficult and if you are around people who are not supportive, it will be even harder. Instead, choose to spend time with people who do not drink or those who you trust not to drink around you. Look for friends or family members that have fun without alcohol. 3) Just because you want to know how to stop drinking wine on your own doesn’t mean you can’t use the tools around you for help. The vitamin B1 is a supplement that is a useful tool because it can make it much easier to abstain from alcohol. Thiamine is important for metabolism of sugar and a deficiency in B1 is associated with alcoholism. It is critical to the functioning of certain biochemical processes specifically in the brain. When you are deficient in this critical vitamin, you will have a much more difficult time controlling cravings. You can find this vitamin in beans, meat such as pork, rice, nuts, peas, soybeans and bran. If you do not want to adjust your diet to encompass consuming more vitamin B1 then you can simply get more from over the counter vitamins in your system to help combat your cravings. 4) Another high quality natural method to quit alcohol is Turmeric. This natural herb is excellent for detoxing the liver. It is beneficial in reducing inflammation, as well as regenerating the cells of the liver. It will also help to promote the production of bile, which cleans the liver and rids it of toxins. It is important to get this herb from an herbal supplier and not from the seasoning section of your grocery store. You will have a better level of nutrients when you purchase from a supplier over the grocery store. This herb is f in the ginger family and is in Indian dishes. When you begin, your journey to quit drinking you will find that you are going to need all the resources you have. You are also going to need to detoxify your body, especially the liver because it has been dealing with so many toxins. Quality herbal supplements are the ideal way to detoxify. Talk to doctor in case of withdrawal symptoms. Rome wasn't built in a day. You're probably not going to kick your habit in a week, either. That's perfectly okay. Small victories beget bigger ones. In the beginning, simply try to reduce the amount of alcohol you consume. Going straight from a heavy drinker to cold turkey is a recipe for physical and emotional disaster. Imagine that due to excess alcohol, you are vomiting and having paralyzing headaches. If you've felt this way before while drinking, try to summon those memories. The pain you feel is good: it's a willingness to change your habits, and that's the first step. Even if you only reduce your daily drinking by one drink, it's a success. No step is too small at this point. A mistake here is getting comfortable only curbing your drinking by one drink. Keep working on reducing the alcohol you consume. Every week, cut down the total number of drinks by at least one. If you want to be more ambitious, try halving the number of drinks you allow yourself each week. Do meditation regularly especially in the morning. At the end of the session, vow not to drink alcohol. Remember your calm mind of meditation later when you feel like drinking. It will distract you. Pick up yoga! It will help you deal with stress and calm your mind. Best of all, yoga can be done in a group setting where you can feed off of the energy of other people. Embrace that positive energy. All the very best.

I understand your worry and concern as a parent. Mostly her vomiting is due to cough. I do hope you have consulted pediatrician ans giving her medicine as per recommendation. Other than that. Give her more liquid diet instead of solid. Many times food particles could cause vomiting. Also as she is very young. As a parents it is important that you stay calm and engage her in some fun activity. Laugh with her tell her stories or what ever she enjoys. Positive and calmer environment around her will help her stay calmer and help in healing process. Support each other as a couple to reduce your anxiety and do everything that needs to be done medically. What ever virus or bacteria that is causing her cough will take. Its course before she will start recovering. Make sure she is hydrated properly. Even one spoon water and electrolyte at a time will also help. Hope she feels better soon. Wishing you all very best.

I am 46 years old male. I have Body dysmorphic disorder from last 3 months. Please help me.
You need to work with a counselor and a doctor in tandem for best results. The treatment will result in success depending on whether you are willing and are trusting of the other persons involved in the treatment. Depending on what you obsess about, the person who guides you through the process and his/her definition and expertise to say if something is a deformity or not has to be accepted with honesty. The process is open to you challenging the veracity of the other person?s judgment and if well supported by reason you must learn to accept that as the truth and the final truth. This may not happen overnight but given sufficient time to know and build confidence that the therapist is not there just to please you and say anything just to convince you but is being frank and fair, will take time to appropriate. If you are a spiritual person it really helps to know that you are made in ?God?s image and likeness?, and that while we are all different, we are unique and spectacular in so many ways. Unfortunately this blessing of being in His image is flawed in humans for various reasons and so we are naturally oriented to emphasizing the defects to the negation of all other positive assets! This is exactly the problem with dysmorphic disorder: we can focus only on some perceived dissonance in our make-up and will hold steadfastly to it even against any or all evidence! However much you try to reset it, you will still not be satisfied. But if you trust someone to say the truth and are willing to believe in that person, you will be free of this disorder. You are a spark of the divine, and just as the drop is the ocean and the ocean is the drop, so are you divine in as much as the divine is you.
