I am boy age of 20 year and I m always thinking about to be a girl, thinking about to having female parts. So what can I do for that.
I am 44 years old. I am under sever depression from past 1 yr. Always think negatively. Feeling unsecured, dull, low energy, heavy head, sleepy. Left my secured job due to heavy pressure and treatment by superior. Joined my friend to start new business but could not stay longer due to loneliness and away from family. Returned back to home. Joined startup again but not able to concentrate. Working alone from home, income has reduced to 1/3rd. The revenue in current venture is uncertain. Finding hard.
I'm not feeling well due to my expectation from my young brother exam result he's not doing well so sometimes realise everything will be alright but stress come over again and again. What to do?
My height is about 5'8 and weighs 73 KG (20 month's back 62 KG) - My concern is, I might be overweight as I can see certain increases on my belly recently. My profession requires me to sit in front of the computer for at least 8 hours a day. I want to create an environment around me which can help me physically fit and mentally peaceful by relieving from my stressful IT job. Is there a home remedy for this? I would really appreciate for your thoughtful and helpful advice on this! Thank you.
I have recently got engaged. I feel she is very shy and me too blunt. What should I do to make her feel comfortable?
I am constantly having tired feeling, experiencing excessive daytime sleepiness. And in night I can't sleep until 3 o clock, I have no motivation to do things, I am able to concentrate for only small time, all times I am worrying about my condition, I used to hesitate or postpone my works. Why this happening.
How to challenge stressful times? Im suffering from anxiety and on fluoxetine 60 mg since last 4 months but was feeling good till now but now due to some stress due to future and carrier im again getting those anxious and depressive thoughts. What should I do?
I am a hypertension person. Being taking tablets for the last 5 years. Is there a remedy to control and stop taking tablets?
Actually what I read I used to forget it very soon. I even face problem in solving math. Day by day this problem is going on increasing. Is this because I was chewing tobacco from last 6 months or something else. I don't know what is happening with me.
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 :
- Sit down and have a glass of water, slowly. This will help you to calm down a little.
- 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.
- 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.
- Now understand what is making you angry. Understand your own anxiety and fear related to the issue.
- 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.
- Focus on the current issue, don’t bring in past situations.
- 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”.
- Listen carefully what the other person wants to tell you. Give others a chance to voice their opinions.
- Make an eye contact and be firm but polite while communicating your point of view.
- Understand everyone’s responsibility in the situation. Try to see, what is your share in the problematic situation? Work on that.
- Understand what change you want.
- Have realistic expectations from others and also from yourself.
If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.
Good afternoon. I've been seeing some very slight shadows/outlines beside objects since 3 days ago and I'm very worried about it. My vision has always been perfect and I've done a brain scan 5 months ago (for other reasons), and it was normal. But since this weird vision symptom started, I've been worrying if it can be caused by some serious problem in the brain. Is it possible that, though I have a recent brain scan with normal results, this vision problem can be caused by some serious brain problem? I've been to a neurologist yesterday, and she said that this vision problem couldn't be caused by any serious brain condition because in 5 months a serious thing wouldn't develop enough to make me have vision symptoms like this. She said I didn't need to do another brain scan. But I'm still worried about being a brain tumor that could have developed in 5 months that's causing these slight shadows, because they are still very slight, so I'm worried the shadows could be not so bad yet because the problem could be in the beginning. I have severe anxiety and my neurologist said I should blame these vision symptoms on it, but I'm still very worried, as these shadows/outlines are scary. You think I should do another brain scan? Or is my neurologist right? Thank you.
I do have a regular diet inslite of all ths I m not able to be fit n healthy. Is ds a body issue or stress of studies? please hlp me.
Stress is an automatic response to psychological threats. It can be in two different ways - the psychological perception of pressure and the body’s response to it. Due to the hormonal changes in the body due to this pressure, the body’s fight or flight response is set in motion.
Stress can be characterized into acute, episodic and chronic. Acute stress is short term stress which does not last long but may have long term effects if ignored. Episodic stress is short term stress but in situations which can be a daily occurrence, such as stressful situations in the workplace. Chronic stress refers to long term stress which has lasted over a long period of time. There are many different causes of stress such as work, relationships, personal appearance, societal norms, bereavement, health worries, major life changes etc. The cause of stress and the degree to which we experience them differs from person to person, with each of us having different levels of tolerance.
1. Practice deep breathing exercises:
One main symptom of stress is staggered breathing. When we experience stressful situations, we tend to breathe faster and more rapidly. Practicing deep breathing helps you normalize your breathing and bring your heart rate back down to normal.
2. Try progressive muscle relaxation:
This concept requires you to consciously identify all the muscles in your body which are tensing and relax them. In order to do this you will have to first consciously tense the muscles in your body and know what that feels like, then relax them and learn what that feels like.
3. Use guided imagery:
Sit in a quiet place, close your eyes, and try to visualize your ‘happy place.’ This is the place you feel at peace. Imagine the sights, sounds, smells and feel of that place. The next time you feel yourself start to feel stressed try this technique.
4. Make time for hobbies:
We all have so much work to complete in the day or week that we forget to give ourselves some time off. It is important that you take some time off to do things which you enjoy. For example, you may like reading or painting or fishing. Alot a time in the week for you to do these activities. This will help you destress and help put you in a more relaxed state.
5. Be aware of your stressors:
It is important that we identify the things which cause us stress. Once we are aware of our stressors we can consciously make an effort to relax before going into the task. Make a plan before going to tackle the task which is causing the stress.
