How to do away with fear and existential anxiety permanently without taking any pills. Its making me go paranoid and nuts.

How to do away with fear and existential anxiety permanently without taking any pills.
Its making me go paranoid and ...
Well, if your anxiety is overwhelming (which it seems from your phrasing the question & your medicine Melzap-MD 0.25 mg) you will need a combined approach of medicines & lifestyle changes. First is deliberately put yourself in way of your FEARS Second keep a diary & make a list of all your fears. Grade these fears 1-10 (1 being highest & 10 being lowest) Third, go to a Psychiatrist & keep discussing your progress in conquering this fear hierarchy/fear list. He/she can give you valuable inputs/modifications/suggestions to make your progress easier & faster. Lastly with suggestion of Psychiatrist, take regular course of medications to hasten your recovery. All the Best.

Hi my name is Saikat and my age is 32yrs. Presently I am suffering from depression and negativity. I never had faced like this ever before. I found that I am running out of confidence and feel like I will fail in everything that I will do. I am a banker and is into this profession for last 8 yrs. I had passed through all my assignments and got all my promotions throughout my carrier. But for the last one year I am going down and also missed my promotion once. I know presently the team and the branch I am handling, is a branch with negativity indisciplined non-professionals people and there demotivating and negativity effected me a lot. But another reason is that I feel that I started thinking about my x-gf a lot and sometimes wen I am too much depressed about my work and personal life and also with my married life or arguments with my wife or nagging of my wife, I feel like I might be more happy, if I had married my Ex. I am confused with her and my wife. My wife is 8 months pregnant and taking full care of her and maintaining all her requirements, I come with a regular complain from her that I cannot forget my Ex and still I am in love with her. And this allegation sometimes make me confused that whether I still love my Ex-GF or that I can not forget her and also feel like if I had stand against my family and might had married her, would I be more happier. She was my first GF and I had good quality time with her as I was young and had ample time to spent with her. But presently I am so much bough down with my work that I have hardly quality time to spent with my wife. I am confused with she and my wife. Sometimes I feel that I still miss her a lot. Sometimes I forget about her totally and only think about my wife. And also people around me in my office now a days are so much negative that I also started feel like them that nothing will happen good in my life. I failed to crack many interviews in last few months due to lack of confidence. I was never like this before. Please guide me in this matter and help me to come out from this situation.

Dear lybrate user, you are 32 and your professional life is expected to be very busy at this stage in your life. You have achieved most of your goals till now, and hence missing this promotion is a big set back for you. But please understand that there will be set backs in life, and they are temporary. It is possible that you missed this promotion not because of lack of performance, but because of somehting else. You can try harder next time. Regarding your personal life, it appears that you are getting pulled towards both - your ex girl friend and your wife. It is advisable for you to concentrate on your present than your past. If you are unable to spare time for your wife, she might be feeling lonely and not loved. Try to spend quality time with her. Girl friend and wife have different roles in life. Wife will demand certain things which you might think as" nagging" listen" to her, understand her needs. She herself must be under stress, as she is in the advance stage of pregnancy. I think you need" closure" of your relationship with your exgirl friend. Unless you do this closure you will not be able to give 100% to your wife. This uncertainty of feelings is disturbing your professional life. Consult a counsellor so that you are aware of your actual thoughts and feelings. More of self awareness would help you to take rational decisions. Once you are clear about your own feelings and what you want from life, things will become easier for you. Take care.

Hi…This problem is due to irritation and inadequate nutrition of the brain. So follow few basic things …. 1) drink only 100-150 ml of water during meals …. 2) don’t drink water one hour before meals and one hour after meal… 3) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast, fermented and stale foods… 4) avoid coffee and tea… 5) try to sleep upto 10.30 pm … 6) do anuloma viloma pranayam regularly early in the morning… A) eat 30-40 black currants and 1 tsf of jaggery during meals… B) take 250 ml of fresh butter milk during meals. C) instill 3-4 drops of CHANDANADI TAILA in each nostril at the time of sleeping Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result. Consult to me for further suggestions. THANKS.

There was a break up about one years ago, and since then I was in a deep depression and recovered somehow after consulting a psychologist. But still now I am feeling very alone and prefer spending time with myself ruminating those thoughts only but don't get interest in daily life. What should I do? Although my medicines are still going on. And I was told by the doc that there was a deviation of me and lack of serotonin secretion. I will be really grateful if you help. And sir please SAY THAT SHOULD I worry about THIS SITUATION OF MINE?

Hello Friend, Good that you are seeking a help. Happy to hear you are able to come out of your depressions. Serotonin is one of the happiness hormones. There are ways to trigger it. Suggest you to engage yourself into physical excersise, gym, yoga and some voluntary or service activities or your passion or hobbies. Try and divert your mind from past thinking. Look for a new partner or relationship building activities. Keep yourself occupied. That's enough. Be positive. You will be alright soon.

my son is 20 years old and studying B. Tech 3rd year now. He was very soft and cute upto the age of 16 years. However, during college days and till now his behavior is changed a lot. He is always likes to spent with friends, not focusing on studies, more anger, irritated. Due to this, I am disturbed a lot and some times shouts on him. In general, he is very innocent. Because of the friends, he is neglecting studies and careless. Please advice what kind of measures to be taken with my son to bring back to normal.

You son is growing up. He is in a phase of his life, where he is evolving as a seperate individual. His hormone levels are high. He is full of youth and energy and hence will have curiosity towards life. He would like to experiment with various things and will be more adventurous than before. He will argue with you do not shout at him, be firm. But do not worry, if you have given him good values till now, he will know how to handle life. Presently, he will prefer company of his friends and he might say that you are backward, orthodox etc etc. Just listen to what he says. Have open communication with him. Do not judge him for anything. Let him enjoy the freedom of being a seperate individual. He will have different views and opinions about everything in life. He is getting angry with you probably because, you are trying to restrict him. It is high time, that he takes responsibility for his own behaviour. Make him understand that if he fails in the exams, his future will get affected. You do not take responsibility for his behaviour and studies. Let him responsibility for his life. At the same time, try to understand his dreams. Guide him properly. Take him to various successful people in life. Let him interact with them. Soon he will realise, how he needs to behave. At the age of 20, present day children are a challenge for all parents. You do not have to bring your son back to normal, because I think he is normal. He is just full of energy, youth, curiosity and plenty of dreams but no life experience. Keep a check on his friend circle, so that he does not get into any kind of addictions. Give him freedom, talk to him about your worries, listen to his concerns, view points, have faith in him, let him know that he is very valuable to you. At the same time, please do not let him manipulate you. Be in control of the situations as a father. All the best.

It appears that you are angry and frustrated. You are not happy with your family. What has caused all this? at your age, it is normal to have arguments with your parents. Remember that your parents belong to a different generation. It is difficult for them to understand and accept the ideas of new generation. But it is also important for them to see what you are thinking and feeling. Many parents try to control their children and are very strict with them, which is very frustrating for the children. My suggestion would be try to talk to your family when all are in good mood. Talk to them about your fears, dreams, expectations. At the same time try to understand their worries. Open and frank communication helps. But see that you do not blame each other and focus on having better relations and understanding.

Lost A Loved One - Do You Know How You Can Help Yourself?

Psychiatrist, Delhi
Lost A Loved One - Do You Know How You Can Help Yourself?

Each and every person on this planet has to deal with the loss of a loved one at some point of their life or the other. It is an undeniable and unavoidable part of the human existence. However, at times, the grief can affect the person so much that their psychological, emotional and physical health may be affected. Their normal day- to-day functioning may be affected as a result of their extreme reaction to the loss of their loved one. In such a case it is ideal to seek treatment from a certified medical professional such as a counselor or psychologist. If the condition is even more serious and the patient requires help to treat him or her, then it is advisable to go to a psychiatrist.

However, the following tips commonly given by mental health professionals may help to deal with such a loss:

  • Accepting one's emotion: Sometimes an individual may remain in denial about the loss of the loved one or about his or her own reaction to it. This increases the negative emotion as it does not find a medium of expression. The person withdraws into himself or herself, and is slowly unable to conduct the usual daily activities. The first step therefore is to fully accept the reality of the event and one's own response to it. It can help to speak to a friend or family member about one's own response, or even release the grief by crying. Such cathartic avidities are the first step.
  • Taking care of oneself: Often after the death of a loved one, an individual may become wary of his or her own condition and fail to look after himself or herself. This should be avoided. Normal diet, exercise and activities are required.
  • Channeling grief into productive activity: Constantly focusing on the loss of the loved one can increase the trauma and stress. Sometimes it helps to focus on helping others, e.g. Volunteering at a charity or assisting others in some way. Even taking up artistic pursuits or any productive hobby proves to be beneficial.

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

I am a 25 years lady got married at the age 18. From then up to now I and my husband relationship is not good, he always says your mind is not matured and you don't know how to cook so he hates me . Is my problem will be cured by counseling session. I do have many complaints with him. I can attend only on Sunday. Will I get the appointment on sunday

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I think that your husband is not being fair with you. Maturity and cooking are not connected, and even so it is not reason enough for him to hate you. Since this is becoming serious, you must seek the help of a marriage counselor soon. I suppose you are aware that, ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’! Cooking good food can quite satiate a man that he is happy and content. Now it has been 7 years since you are married and I think that that is good time to learn or improve your culinary skills. If not do attend some cookery classes or buy some books that can help you do better. If you have not tried to improve your skills, I can understand that your husband is upset though not enough to hate you. Ask your mom or neighbors or friends for their favorite dishes and serve up some mouth-watering food and see what happens. Since you mention that you have a lot of complaints about your husband, there may be other issues that are bothering him and you, and he may be using this as an excuse to blame you. There are counselors who work on Sundays too and you can avail of their services to correct the problems confronting your relationship soon.
