Please rush to a psychiatrist without delay. Take your parents with you because the doctor will want to know your entire history from prenatal days. You have already delayed by two years, and must not postpone any further. Normally, serious breakdowns happen during late adolescence looking for a resolution, for the final time. Please follow the prescriptions recommended by the doctor and simultaneously seek some counseling. Life is very precious, and if this condition persists, your very survival may be in question. Please do not entertain any self-inflicting thoughts in your mind, ever. When you do have those ideas, please call a professional at once.

Mr. Lybrate-user. I would advise you to stop smoking immediately. Switch over to nicorete gum. Your heaviness in chest should subside. Go for regular morning walks if breathing difficulty persists. Kindly go to a pulmonologist for further evaluation.

I am smoking from last 4.5 year 7-10 cigarette a day but now im try to quitting this, is lungs affected or its normal, ant suggest me how to clean my lungs also.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
The lining in the throat is filled with tiny hair like structures called cilia. Cilia are tiny hair-like organelles that reside on the surface of cells. There are two types of cilia: motile and non-motile. The former continuously move in a wave-like fashion in a single direction, while the latter function as sensory organs that respond to stimulus. The most common reason to suffer damaged or paralyzed cilia, however, is smoking. Normally, healthy ones in the bronchial tubes work in sync with specialized cells that produce mucous to capture and remove impurities from the lungs. Smokers, on the other hand, are subjected to about 7,000 toxic chemicals in cigarette smoke, including arsenic, methane, and carbon monoxide. This damages the organelles, and dirt, environmental pollutants, and toxins from cigarette smoke remain in the lungs. Furthermore, these toxins migrate from the lungs via the bloodstream to other organs. In response to the presence of excess irritants, mucous cells in the lungs become stimulated to produce more mucous than they normally would. Of course, with damaged cilia, the lungs have no means of moving the mucous out. This usually results in an unproductive cough. In fact, the damage caused by smoking leaves the smoker at significantly higher risk for frequent respiratory infections, or chronic bronchitis. Continued smoking may eventually lead to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema) or lung cancer. In fact, smoking eventually destroys the cilia, which may then be displaced by an excessive number of basal cells or squamous cells. Over time, these cells may become cancerous. They may also become rogue, escaping through lung tissue and invading other parts of the body. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself.

Dear Ranjith , at your age we are all generally sensitive and find it difficult to take jokes. But we need to understand a couple of things - we feel bad only either we know that what our friends are saying is right - and we have been trying hard to hide our shortcomings , which our friend has pointed out- in such a case work on your shortcoming and thank your friend to be a true one. But many times our friends are trying to have a good time at our expense, question yourself - Do I real need such friends? Secondly, are they some authority in certifying others? The more you react to such jokes , the more fun they derive from teasing you, so start ignoring or begin to be part of it - once you stop reacting , their enjoyment would be over & then they will stop teasing. If the jokes are to do with your height or weight - raise your height by achieving something extraordinary - so that they look up to you, reduce your weight to look fit and agile.

Hello! I am 18 years old! I have a lot of anger issues due to which I end up having problems with my family members, friends and people around me! Please suggest a therapy or a solution to this :(

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Anger is good. It protects you. But intense, uncontrolled anger may destroy valuable relationships. Anger is a result of anxiety and fear. When we assume that our expectations will not be met, we become anxious. When we feel unsure about our own capabilities we become anxious. This anxiety creates fear. Anxiety comes from our beliefs. All beliefs can be modified. Anger has lots of energy. Avoid arguments/confrontations when you are very angry. When you are very angry you are likely to use rough language which may damage your relations and you are likely to behave impulsively. All this you might regret later on. Following are a few techniques which will help you to manage your anger in difficult situations: 1.Sit down and have a glass of water, slowly. This will help you to calm down a little. 2.Avoid or go away from that room or situation. Tell the people concerned, that you are angry and would like to discuss it some other time. 3.Deep breathing exercises help a lot. Close your eyes, take 10 deep breaths, turn your attention towards your body. See what is happening to your body. Tell your body muscles to relax. If your heart is beating fast, if you are breathing fast, continue deep breathing, till it normalises. 4.Now understand what is making you angry. Understand your own anxiety and fear related to the issue. 5.Let the other person know how you are “feeling”. Start your statements, “I feel hurt/insulted/let down/neglected etc. When you do this”, instead of saying “You hurt/neglect me”. When you express your feeling in this manner, the other person does not feel blamed, which makes the other person more receptive. 6.Focus on the current issue, don’t bring in past situations. 7.Tell the other person, what you want or expect, instead of telling what you do not want. E.G. Instead of saying “I don’t want you to go out now”, say “I would like you to stay at home today”. 8.Listen carefully what the other person wants to tell you. Give others a chance to voice their opinions. 9.Make an eye contact and be firm but polite while communicating your point of view. 10.Understand everyone’s responsibility in the situation. Try to see, what is your share in the problematic situation? Work on that. 11.Understand what change you want. 12.Have realistic expectations from others and also from yourself. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult me by clicking consult option FrustrationLife is full of frustrations. From the minor irritations of losing something to the major problem of continued failure towards a desired goal. Since many of the things we truly want require a degree of frustration, being able to manage frustration is required in order to allow us to remain happy and positive even in trying circumstances. Understanding Frustration Frustration is an emotion that occurs in situations where a person is blocked from reaching a desired outcome. In general, whenever we reach one of our goals, we feel pleased and whenever we are prevented from reaching our goals, we may succumb to frustration and feel irritable, annoyed and angry. Typically, the more important the goal, the greater the frustration and resultant anger or loss of confidence. Frustration is not necessarily bad since it can be a useful indicator of the problems in a person's life and, as a result, it can act as a motivator to change. However, when it results in anger, irritability, stress resentment, depression or a spiral downward where we have a feeling of resignation or giving up, frustration can be destructive.

You need to change your study habits. Choose right time, place for your study. Switch off all dis-tractors such as mobile, tv, music system etc. Practice writing what you have read and make several repetitions. Take sufficient diet and rest. Yoga and deep breathing is always helpful before you study. Always remember, refreshed mind always learn and recall better. Invest your energy in relaxing your mind before you study.

Yes she definitely requires assessment and treatment by a psychiatrist. A lot of patients develop acute depression after a surgery, especially in old age. It could be some other mental illness also. It's ok if she feels afraid to visit a psychiatrist, you should still take her. She'll be much better when her treatment starts.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Your daughter is just 3 and half years. Please consider her age. Children do act according to what they are trained for. You must understand you can easily train your child to do whatever you want. For training you have to first understand the child and her needs. You can use trial and error method or reward punishment method. If you don't have time, a psychologist should help you. I suggest online behaviour therapy for your child. Take care.

You are obviously stressed and probably doing a lot of emotional eating. Your sedentary work style is not helping at all. You seem to display a lot of anger. Your over-eating may be due to that. Apart from that, you need to look at your metabolic rate ? my assumption is that that may be low as well. So the thing to do is deal with your feelings with a counselor; eat a lot of fiber food, whole grains, vegetables, and fruits; exercise every day in the morning and during the day, take periodic breaks and just walk around from your desk; and finally do some stress management course. Among these things the exercise will increase your metabolic rate and your expressing feelings are the most critical.
