You need to divert yourself to some work and keep yourself busy. The more busy you will be, your body will automatically get tired which will help you to sleep better. Don't think too much, and have warm milk before retiring to bed.

My mother has always been very extremely possessive and she sometimes goes to extreme heights because of that. Recently on 28th April, I lost my father to cancer. He was diagnosed in JULY last year and survived only for 9 months. Those 9 months had a very negative affect on my mental and physical health. I got diagnosed with PCOD and Hyperthyroidism and the doctors have repeatedly asked me to avoid stress and tension. After my dad passed away, my mom's possessiveness grew to extreme new heights. She constantly keeps a tab on everything I do, who I meet. It feels as if I need her permission to breathe also. This has made me very volatile emotionally. I have started getting these episodes of anger, violence and uncontrolled emotions where I become so angry that I become abusive verbally. This is also taking a toll on my health as my bp sometimes goes as low as 80/50 then as high as 140/90 in a same day. I am unable to sleep, tensed, distracted all the time. I am seeing a guy she does not approve of but she needs to understand that he has been with me through the whole bumpy ride and even though I am emotionally a disaster right now he still refuses to give on me. She calls up in my office also asking about my whereabouts and travelling details and my job is also at risk now. All this is taking a toll on me every way possible. I really do not know what to do now.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
It seems that you and your mother both need help. As for you, you have pcod and hyperthyroidism both of which lead to hormonal disturbances leading to emotional upheaval causing outbursts and depression. Your mother still is going through the phase of trauma of your fathers death, which may take some time to pass. I would suggest you to consult a psychiatrist with all details, get a hormonal profile done before you plan on the management.

I have recently quit smoking and drinking alcohol. Is there any medication to help me in detox?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Not for detox per se. You can, however, put yourself on an exercise program, get adequate sleep, drink a lot of fluids in the form of water and juices, and do meditation. Anyway, you will detoxify quite naturally within a month of quitting.

The Golden Key to Accept the Things That You Can't Change

Psychologist, Hubli-Dharwad
The Golden Key to Accept the Things That You Can't Change

There are certain aspects of our lives, which we may feel are not upto the mark and you might want to change them. For example, consider a situation that you suffer from dwarfism and people mock you about your height. You may wish that you were taller so that you are not ridiculed anymore. You may feel physically inadequate and stay depressed quite frequently.

No matter what the odds are, you should be able to find a support system somewhere, be it in your friends, family or within yourself. There are a number of methods which you may find useful in dealing with these kinds of situations.

  1. Mediation: Meditation may help in focusing your mind and keeping your mind free from negative thoughts. It helps in improving your concentration and broadens your mind. It may also help in seeing situations in a different manner and in a different light thus, helps you overcome difficult episodes in life.
  2. See things from a different vantage point:Usually we see things from one single standpoint and perceive them in a single manner. It is advised to see the same thing through multiple viewpoints and multiple vantage points in order to get a broader understanding of the entire situation. This helps in making a more logical and balanced decision.
  3. Focus on the positives: Let’s understand with the help of a simple anecdote. One day a teacher gave a student a white piece of paper with a black dot at the center and asked the student what he thought of the paper. The student said that there was a black dot on the paper. Usually, most people tend to focus on the black dot and not the white space surrounding it. Similarly, in life, you should see the positives instead of concentrating only on the negative aspects. This will help you sail through a number of difficult stages.
  4. Build resilience: Being resilient is a very good quality to have, as it can help you overcome a lot of setbacks in life. Problems are a part of life as they might result from external circumstances which you will have no control over. Hence, it is always wise to accept the situation and move on in life.

To gain weight you should eat more calories than you burn. Plus not only you have to eat calorie dense food but you have to keep in mind that what you are eating is healthy too. In the process of weight gain you do not want to put weight in an uneven manner and look unhealthy rather than looking bright and healthy. 1. Start with changing your lifestly. Start working out if you are not active. The biggest myth that prevails now a days is that thin people do not need to work out. This is wrong. When you challenge your body, it is forced to grow. But this growth can only be possible if you are eating enough food to let the body absorb and grow in size and muscles. 2. Eat Healthy – Stop drinking and smoking too much if you are indulged in it. Limit your intake of junk food, pepsi, sugary stuff etc. Do not at all starve yourself. Make it a habit to eat something healthy every 3 hours. This means you have to eat 6 small meals in a day. Your Daily food intake should ideally consist of – a. Have plenty of nuts, dry fuits and seeds. Almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, figs, dates and raisins. They are full of healthy fats needed by a human body. b. Good amount of fruits and vegetables – Bananas, apples, pomegranate, green leafy vegetables. Fruits and vegetables helps in absorption of food in the body and together, completes your daily nutrition need. c. If you are a non- vegetarian - Eat eggs, chicken etc. d. Eat whole grains – Try to have multi grains spread throughout the day. Wheat, brown rice, oats, bajra, daliya etc should be taken in multiple meals in a day. e. Eat Sprouts – Chana and moong which are full of protein and nutrients. f. You can supplement your diet with good quality multi-vitamin capsules. If you are lacking in protein, you can buy a high quality whey protein and have it with banana shake twice a day. g. You can take natural food items like wheat grass which is full of essential nutrients which helps in weight gain. Try to be patient while you are on the process of weight gain. Results take time to show. Just follow the regimen of weight gain religiously and you will soon start seeing the results.

1. Failing an exam doesn’t mean you’re going to drop out – unlike one Bill Gates who dropped out of Harvard in 1975, only to become possibly the richest man in the world. 2. After any failure it always helps to take a step back and weigh up your options. Can you retake the exam? Can you improve in other areas to bring your grades up to scratch? Explore all the options open to you before doing anything rash. 3. Put the past to bed and focus on getting right next time, either in the retake or the next exam on the horizon – focus on the future and don’t look back. 4. Pressure to pass tests and exams bombards you from all angles when you’re in education. It’s not just the expectations of the school, often the pressure to perform to the standards expected by your parents can be overbearing and cause unnecessary stress – never good preparation. Be true to yourself, be realistic; of course you want to do well but don’t let the hopes and aspirations of others bear down on you too hard. It’s you who has to sit the paper and you with the most to lose – moreover it’s you with the most to gain. Set the bar as high or low as you know you’re capable of. YOU CAN TAKE HELP OF MEDITATIONS AND MUSIC THERAPY TO COME OUT FROM DEPRESSION, BUT AFTER COMING FROM DEPRESSION USE YOUR WHOLE ENERGY AND FOCUS IT ON YOUR GOAL. REMEMBER FAILURE IS NOT END, ITS BEGINING OF SOME BEAUTIFUL LIFE, IF YOU TAKE IT SERIOUSLY.
