Dear lybrate user, I think, along with medicines, you will need to go for therapy/counselling. Counselling will help you to control your panic attacks. About the social anxiety, you need systematic behaviour therapy. You can get rid of your anxiety and panic attacks with the help of therapy. Please contact a counsellor for this. But do not stop medication on your own. Your counsellor and your psychiatrrist will advice you do that, when you will start feeling better. Take care.

I am looking for a good therapist in Gurgaon for my son. He is seeking help on anger management issues.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Anger and aggression are emotions. These emotions always arise because of irritation, disappointment or events which were negative and not expected. But you should understand, these are common. You cannot change situations or circumstances. But we can always alter our perception and behavior about what is happening. This the core of anger management. I suggest online anger management training. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, you need to have proper counseling for the same. Break ups are tough and to manage your emotional well being is important. First thing to do is remove any painful triggers that you may have around. Try to be more active and social. See the bigger picture and realize if this break up will matter to you 5 years down the lane.

Dear, I can understand your condition. I may not be able to provide you any advises unless I know you and your conditions well. Frustration from relationship issues are normal and depression out of those issues are also common. Attempting suicide is cowardice. I suggest you to consult a psychologist,Take care.

Hi Doctor. I am not able to clear up my confusion and figure out the aim of my life and passion. I have work experience of 10 years but I am mediocre when it comes to putting efforts. I am distracted by many things around and I spend too much time on thinking within myself.

It appears likely that you may be in the wrong profession or career. If you are not showing the interest in a particular job and not growing either, then it is quite suggestive of your being in a field that does not match your aptitude. You must meet with a career guidance counselor and do the tests for aptitude and career guidance and determine what you are actually made for. These counselors may not be willing to do a test at this late time in your life but do request them and they will if you put sufficient pressure. When this has been done you can see with the counselor’s help how to incorporate your aptitude with the current job that you are doing and make a suitable ‘adjustment’ so that various lose strings can be drawn together and a suitable job opening with your present qualification can be accommodated. Introspection is good if you are focused on a particular idea for development. If not, it will serve no purpose other than extending your problems to overwhelming levels.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The more you try to forget something from past, the more it disturbs you. Don't try to forget. Forgetting happens automatically. Engage yourself in daily physical and mental activities so that you don't remember. Take care.

Hi I am 27 years old. I spend most of my day's time with my office friend . She is also female . I feel I am lesbian. Because I get attracted to her. But I feel it is just because I am emotionally and mentally attached to her. So all I am feeling this. I just want to know how do I confirm if I am a lesbian or not ?

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
If you are attracted only emotionally you may not be lesbian, but very much dependent on her. If you are attracted physically wanting to have body intimacy, but also have similar thoughts with men, then you are bi-sexual. But if you have those exclusively towards women (body intimacy). Then you are a Lesbian. Whatever it is, nothing wrong, enjoy your sexuality

Dear Lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) Lungs mixes oxygen in our blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like Nicotine etc. In Oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body organs like Lungs, Heart, kidney etc… How to quit: By willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" Reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help by in-person or audio/video.

Dear , I felt happy to hear that you left smoking. God bless you. You have smoked just for 2 years. Your lungs have the capacity to repair itself. On an average it takes 6 months to one year for your lungs to repair itself. The best method is to do lung age test. You may consult nearest physician to do this. Take care.
