What can we do about social anxiety, like lack of smile in public, always afraid of something,
I am a college student.
Social Anxiety Disorder (social phobia) is the third largest mental health care problem in the world today. The latest government epidemiological data show social anxiety affects about 7% of the population at any given time Social anxiety is the fear of social situations that involve interaction with other people. You could say social anxiety is the fear and anxiety of being negatively judged and evaluated by other people.  It is a pervasive disorder and causes anxiety and fear in most all areas of a person's life.  It is chronic because it does not go away on its own. Anxiety reducing medications along with CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), can change the brain, and help people overcome social anxiety. Consult a psychiatrist and get helped. All the best.

Tips To Improve Communication Between Couples!

Tips To Improve Communication Between Couples!

When you spend so much time with someone you are bound to have at least an occasional difference of opinion, to say the least, and it’s not always easy to keep objective and levelheaded when you enter into a disagreement with your partner. When this happens, remember to use these effective communication skills with your partner to improve the odds of reaching a solution that is in the relationship’s best interest.

This is because no matter how much you love and respect each other, it might not be possible to always keep cool and be levelheaded while entering into a disagreement with your significant other.

Here are a few effective communication skills that can improve the odds of reaching an amicable solution:

  1. Use ‘I’ in the statement: Never blame your partner. This can make your partner feel that you are trying to attack your partner’s feelings, which often takes a negative turn. For example, if your partner is late, you can say “I would have appreciated if you had called me”. In this case, it’s all about how you feel and so it’s now up to the partner to appreciate, understand and consider your situation.

  2. Don’t interrupt; listen first: Generally, in an argument, both the partners usually wait for their turn to talk and spurt out their anger and resentment. But this often makes things get worse. Most of the time, disagreements and petty discords, often, get resolved more easily, when someone pays more attention to the cause that might be making the other person upset. Also, watch out for the other person’s body language for getting a grip of his/her feelings. Try and pay undivided attention to what your partner has to say. Only when you have understood what might be the reason for all the hullaballoo, should you start explaining.

  3. Don’t dig up the Past: Always stick to the discussion and the controversy at hand. Never dig up old corpses. Digging up past hatchet will only churn out further heated arguments, things you surely would want to avoid. Remember, resolving multiple conflicts could only get nastier and even more difficult.

  4. Explain later, Acknowledge first: The most effective way of avoiding sudden escalation of disagreements is to first listen and acknowledge your partner’s feelings. Do it even if you think that the other person’s argument lacks reason. Take your time to hear out the other person.

  5. Maintain a Positive and a Respectful Tone: Lastly, maintain a positive and a respectful tone. And never abuse. Abusing is derogatory and can invite further malice that will only keep on spiraling north. There never was and will never be any alternative to maintaining dignity and holding your ground no matter how much the malice is. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

My sister's age is 37 years, she is a severe case of depression treated by private psychiatrist. She is on regular medication for the last 15 years. She sleeps 5-6 hrs during daytime, snoring is very high, weight gain visible, brain not working properly, gets bad dreams. Feels better if not working. Please help.

Yes, I agree with you, her case is sounding quite severe, and to be depressed for so long might have taken a toll on her motivation. It is easy for everyone to get angry with her but you have got to be understanding and yet firm. She needs help from the external because her internal drive may be highly diminished. One problem I am certain you have not done, which is to give her therapy while on medication. She needs to talk to some counselor qualified to treat depression. All these years have gone by without that form of support. Now what you can do is the following: take her out by force in the sun for at least half an hour daily. Take her for vigorous exercise everyday but start gradually. Do not let her sleep beyond 6. 30 am every day. She should not be allowed to lie down, sleep or lounge around during the day time. In fact she should be put on a tight time-table of interesting and mind-occupying activities. If she is taking her night tablets late, make her have dinner as early as 8 pm and let her take her night medication at that time and go to sleep as early as possible. Have her eat a lot of fiber and proteins in her diet. Give her some positive affirmations to recite every morning and night, three times at a time. There are certain products that help lose weight, which are very good. If interested, she can take them, regularly until the desired weight loss is achieved. There are some neurological exercises too that she can do but other people need to be involved. You can get in touch with me for some of them. Please be very patient with her but do all this on a war-footing and aggressively, if you want to see some improvement. Things will change gradually and will depend on her cooperation and all of your support.

You are not psycho. You are very sensitive type of person. From child hood onwards you have some internal frustrated thoughts. That you have unable to express in a proper manner. You are suffering from emotional instability. Emotions are not expressed in a proper manner. You need emotional therapy. Emotions are also fluctuated from time to time. So better to consult psychologist for emotion relaxation therapy and cognitive behaviour therapy. Some sessions after you feel normal. Do not think I am psycho etc. It is simple behavioural disorder it can be cured is some days. Better to consult good psychologist. Ok best of luck.

I joined MBBS on August 2010. On January 2011 my relatives bet me continuously for around 3 to 4 hours front of public that to all known fellows and for no reason they did that and later many people remembered that incident regularly by making fun of me for almost 2 years means from January 2011 to December 2012. And moreover previously few days before my relatives bet me I was been ragged by college seniors so I had went home. But my relatives bet me telling I was lying and ran home to quit medical and etc bad things about me. and later they kept on spreading negatives about me which I had not done. Infact even to my college Dean, Professors and Clerk. So everyday from Jan 2011 to June 2011 one or the other was scolding me. So I fear+sadness I didn't met anybody whom I know or anybody new. And parents were neutral. And flunked in June 2011 (1st year MBBS exam. And from that day till now I am dying in fear+sadness+anger on relatives+more anxiety+no proper sleep+not taking food properly+still not able to mingle with people. Didn't pass and trying to study or work or do something but couldn't do. Unable to forget those 6 months till today. I am sure I am not lying. So am I normal? Am I useless to live? I want to complete MBBS and even do PG. At that time my age was 18 and now almost 24 years. Is it worth if I start 1st year MBBS again.

Dear lybrate user, first of all, I want to tell you, that do not make negative comments to yourself and negative and pessimistic ruminations about self. Because you have that incident happened and because you were not aware of any reason behind why your relatives treated in an in-humanitarian manner, clearly reflects their insensitivity towards you and to humanity in general. Because a normal understanding person will not treat other person like this. Second due to this traumatic experience you were not able to concentrate and study also which is but obvious, as anyone who is in such kind of situation will definitely feels fearful, angry and anxious. Further, meeting with such people or even talking about them would make you more helpless and difficult to trust people around. I would suggest you to continue your studies which you have stopped in between and it is definitely worth full if you will study hard and put best efforts again to do mbbs and distract more in pleasurable activities which you find enjoyable and relaxing. Also, it is important for you to understand that you can not change people or their attitude, the only thing you can do is to manage yourself and adopt better coping mechanism which makes you more proactive towards any kind of challenging or difficult situation. Even if your relatives keep saying some bad words for you, do not give weight to them as they are of no use. Your aim is to achieve higher and success in life. Consult a clinical psychologist, who can deeply and better do management of psychological issues like, anger, fear and sadness and how you can socially adjust in any kind of environment. Take care.

Dear lybrate-user, before meeting a toxicologist, please consult a psychiatrist. Sometimes people develop a delusion of poisoning when they are severely depressed. You have other symptoms of depression, anxiety, dizziness, fear, confusion, dry mouth, nausea, shivering, weight loss, etc. You are neurologically ok, it looks from investigations. Please let me know what medicine, in what dose, for how long. He/she prescribed and for how long you have taken them. Please remember that antidepressants act only at a particular dose and it takes 2-3 weeks to act.

I am preparing for bank po exam from last 2 years. I had prepared very well. I was good in all subjects yet I cannot convert this things into good score and did not get job .The reason is too much anxiety during exam. I cannot control my mind even during exam. I missed crucial time due to this and mind get more diverted. Due to anxiety I smoke 2 3 cigarettes before exam but I am not sure this affect my performance or not. Due to tension masturbation becomes compulsion during preparation and these thoughts constantly distracting me during exam hours. I cannot able to implement the question during exam which I had rigorously practiced during preparation yet I am able to solve it at home in same time. Due to continuous failure my confidence becomes nil.

Dear friend you know it all, can you have courage to face any result, good or bad? it is the fear of negative and obsession of positive which is causing so much unrest. For just one time, do as I suggest. Give the exams casually not keen on passing them. And you will pass! remember cigarettes have proven to increase anxiety and there is a false feeling that it relieves it. The nicotine craving builds up anxiety which one feels is relieved by smoking. Lastly even if you masturbate do not torture and start another conflict by feeling guilty. Chill.

Hi, its called light therapy. It is not clear why bright light therapy may work for people with depression, but previous research has shown it often works in the treatment of people with seasonal affective disorder (sad). One idea is that in people with sad, the light may correct a problem with their inner biological clock called the circadian rhythm, lam said. The second major theory is that light affects neurotransmitters in the brain, such as serotonin, noradrenalin and dopamine, he said" and these are the same neurotransmitters that are of interest in antidepressants for treating depression as well.
