Hello I am Somashekhar from Dharwad in Karnataka. I am running 55 years and is a State Government employee. I am in key position and my employment requires a time bond work. I feel much stress and anxiety. I am also a diabet and BP patient. I take GLIMESTAR-M2 adn NEBICARD, 1 tab each per day and for stress and anxiety I take PETRIL PLUS 1 tab per day. Can you please suggest the ways to over come the stress and anxiety.

Dear . Stress and anxiety is part of everyday life. In fact they are defense mechanism of body with which body is able to tackle threatening situation. So you cannot cure both of them. You learn to manage them. Psychotherapy techniques, yoga, meditation, breathing exercises etc will be of immense help to you. You may ask a private question to me with all details and some examples. I will provide you tailor made therapy suitable for you. Take care.

Why do I get the "final destination" feeling when the flight sit in takes off? Do movies really play a part in a person's mind psychologically?

Dear Lybrate user. This is just fear factor. Movies are able to influence the psychological thought pattern of a person. But you must have noticed the intensity of the feeling comes down with each passing flight. Don't worry. This "final destination" feeling will calm down after some time. Take care.

Suicide Attempts – How to Identify Warnings and Risk Factors?
Suicide is a type of Deliberate Self Harm (DSH) and is defined as a human act of self-intentioned and self-inflicted death. It ends with fatal outcome. Suicide is among the top ten causes of death in India and most other countries. It is also one of the most important psychiatric emergencies all over the world.

Most of the times, suicidal attempts don’t go unaccompanied with warning signs and risk factors. Either the behaviour of a person or the way he talks acts as warning. In order to relate what warning signs a person with suicidal inclination can give, read further.
How can talking help identity a Suicide Warning signs?

1.The person often talks about committing suicide
2.The person sees life as meaningless and without any vigor
3.The person feels like he is a burden on those connected to him
4.The person wishes to seek revenge from someone who hurt him emotionally
5.The person feels like he has been trapped in his life and doesn’t enjoy it
6.The person suffers from unbearable psychological or physical pain

How can behavior help in identifying suicide warning signs?

The inclination of a person towards suicidal thoughts increases if he starts to show a new type of behavior or if he shows negative changes in behavior. Such behavioral changes often follow loss of a loved one, any painful change or unacceptable events.

The person starts to give away some of his most valuable possessions.
The person suffers from panic attacks.
The person starts to call his friends and relatives to bid goodbye.
The person shows changes in sleeping habits like sleeping too little or too much.
The person withdraws from day-to-day activities which once formed an indispensable part of his life.
The person starts to act irresponsibly.
The person increases the consumption of alcohol or usage of drugs.
The person searches for ways to kill oneself and searches for poison, guns or other drugs online.

Identifying the Risk Factors of a Potential Suicide

The presence of risk factors increases the likelihood of a suicidal attempt. The greater is the number of risk factors, the greater the risks. Generally, there are three main heads under which suicidal risk factors can be classified. These are:
Environmental Factors

Close acquaintance with a suicide incident
Life events that cause stress such as loss of beloved, divorce or loss of job
Never-ending stress such as marriage or relationship troubles, job issues, harassment, etc.
Gaining access to certain deadly means such as guns or drugs

Medical Factors

Problems related to mental health (Depression, Schizophrenia ,Borderline personality disorder)
Drug abuse
Excessive alcohol consumption

History

Suicidal tendency of an individual can be linked with historical factors such as:

Prior history of any suicidal attempts by the individual in the past
If the person’s family had any history of suicidal attempts or suicidal deaths in the past

Misconceptions Regarding Suicide

People who talk about suicide don’t commit suicide
Suicide happens without warning
Suicidal persons are fully intent on dying
Once a person is suicidal, he is suicidal for ever
All suicidal persons are mentally ill or psychotic

What should you do if you suspect that someone is at the risk of committing suicide?

Consider it a serious situation.
Do not leave the person alone even for a moment.
Inspect physical surroundings and remove all means of committing suicide, such as sharp objects ropes, drugs, and fire arms. Also search patient thoroughly. Hide all fatal means like drugs or firearms which you think he can use to harm himself.
Take the person to an emergency ward or a psychiatrist if you feel that the condition of person is crossing limits.

I have Lizard phobia. Even I fear a small baby lizard too. Please help me to overcome from this.

I have Lizard phobia. Even I fear a small baby lizard too. Please help me to overcome from this.
hi, I would suggest you to read the information about house lizard. It is harmless creature but as it looks awful and as it may fall on us so we tend to get scared of it. Try systematic desensitization... slowly expose yourself to lizard..first from a distance and then reduce the distance slowly. when you go near it you will find that the poor lizard is scared of you... :)

My son is having less listening attitude, he always plays and never listen to somebody and not having the attitude of studying.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
He may be going through some unresolved childhood issues that are surfacing seeking a gestalt ? a completion to his issues. If it comes up in early adolescence, as it is in your son?s case, it is indicative of something serious. Meet with a counselor for teens and describe his entire history from prenatal days. If there is any history of family related disorders, kindly furnish that information too. Check with his school counselor and/or teachers for more information about his behavior at school. There is a lot you will be surprised to hear from them. He may have opened up to one of his teachers. Also if you exhaust him of his energy, he will be more amenable to listening. So the playing is very important and should not be withdrawn. Gradually discipline him with the amount of playing, and the correct time to study. His disobedience must be handled by the father, and he has to play a more significant role in his life, especially at this stage.

Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear , at your age, memory problems like amnesia are not common. Many young people are having problems with memory. These problems are either they are too busy or due to anxiety and stress. Busy people use organizers or employ a personal assistant because they can't remember every task. You need to understand this. If you still say, you are having memory problems, we need to check your memory using memory test. If you want more of my help in this regard, please contact me. Take care.

My father eats tobacco he wants to get rid from it. He tries it many time but unsuccessful .then from which medicines they get rid.

Masters in Psychology, PGDRP
Psychologist, Delhi
He can take tobacco cessation counselling from me to get rid of it. Tell him to first set up a date in his calender when he wants to quit from. The first step is to make commitment to quit from a particular date but before he does that, make sure he tobacco proofs his surroundings completely i.e all cigarettes, lighters, ash trays should be removed from his surroundings that could possibly remind him of smoking. The next step is to recognize the coping mechanisms that would work best for him, that can be done by consulting a trained counsellor. He can always get back to me for the same.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.

Cure for anxiety and panic attacks during sleep? Is diazepam better than clonazepam? Or is there better option with lesser sedation and addiction?.

Already another doctor answered that it may be a sleep disorder. You need to get diagnosed and assessed properly by a psychiatrist. Both diazepam and clonazepam are of the same group of drugs called benzodiazepine. Both have addiction potential in vulnerable persons. The sedation is for longer time in diazepam than clonazepam. Both are dose dependent. Knowing these, if you still want a benzodiazepine only, clonazepam is better, because it acts only for 6-8 hours.

Masters in Clinical Psychology

Hi lybrate-user, you are suffering from anxiety- fear of death and unknown happening. The fear of death is a common cause and effect of anxiety, and even those without anxiety often experience this fear in some ways. Relaxation exercises coupled with cognitive behavioral therapy will help you overcome this. Consult a psychologist for same. You can consult with me too. All the best.

Hello sir, I am 17 and I am bit confused. I become anxious very fast and for very little things. I used to think what if this happen or what if that happen and once a possible bad outcome come in my mind, My mind blows and from that moment, I couldn't concentrate on anything and I started to feel as that would certainly happen. This is happening from small to big things over 4 months. Moreover when I did any work or someone told me anything important, I become anxious about what if the person had told me something else and I misheared it, this happens every time. Sometimes when I went to bus stop to my school and saw noon, I started what if there is holiday and I reached it. There are millions of scenario like that. I double confirm everything. I am tired of doing it. The case hasn't been resolved yet, whenever I try to study my mind always swings, it become happy sometimes and sometimes very sad and this doesn't also let me study. And the worst thing is that I can't stop thinking whenever I do it, it pains my head. Tell me what I am suffering from? How do I get rid of it? Please don't tell me any medicine.

Hi pranjal.. don't worry you may not need medicine for this.. how would you rate your confidence on a scale of 0 to 10. from what you described it seems your self esteem is low. you need to work on that. Also, if you over stress about things confusions are bound to happen. Make notes if some thing important is coming up. It's ok to confirm and ask on case of confusion you should start meditating or deep breathing as you need clarity of mind and peace to be at peace with yourself. psychotherapy can help you. No need of medication. you can revert to me if you want. We will work on your problem. It's easy to overcome with small efforts.
