My son is 23 years old. He is very short tempered. He has no patience to listen. He down agree even he is wrong. He acts mad very often. He finds fault in everything. He says he needs happiness. He starts fights with his lover and mother very badly using complete bad words no one on Earth can accept. We try to just listen to him during that time. Otherwise, he says he wants to commit suicide. His happiness is temporary. He repeats this kind of mental behaviour very very often. Please help.

Dear user, welcome to lybrate-user. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

Psychiatric Illness In Family - Understanding Its Effects!

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DPM Psychological Medicine
Psychiatrist, Kolkata
Psychiatric Illness In Family - Understanding Its Effects!

Mental illness affects the patient as well as the immediate family. Once the affected member has been diagnosed with a mental illness, his family members find it difficult to accept this situation. They are in a state of denial. This state later gives way to feelings of frustration, resentment, anger and helplessness.

To overcome these feelings, it is important for the family to move beyond the mental illness of its relative and not away from him. The family members must accept the reality that someone among them is ill and it is their duty to help him recover from his mental illness.

Effect of social stigma

  1. Unfortunately, mental illness draws social stigma. Many relatives of mentally ill people who are afflicted do not discuss their predicament with others. The reason is not too hard to discover- large sections of society think that mental illness is something very horrible. Very few people know that psychiatric disorders are treatable and they are as good or bad a disease as others.
  2. Strangely, while the society comes out in support of people suffering from cancer and other life-threatening diseases, in cases of mental illness it adopts a position of aloofness. The underlying thought in the minds of people is that there must be something wrong in the family of the mental illness patient.
  3. The net result is that the family withdraws from the society and gets into a shell. Guests are not invited over on social occasions and it often happens that the family gets into depression.
  4. Coping with frustration and helplessness
  5. Psychiatrists also point out to another range of emotions affecting the family members of a mentally ill person- feelings of frustration, helplessness and anger.
  6. Imagine a situation where a schizophrenic child is unable to perform even normal tasks, such as eating food. The parent will try to convince the child to have her food but the mentally ill child cannot perform even that basic function. Unless the parent understands that this is not a normal child, she will continue to try to feed it. The child will, on the other hand, resist. This will continue till the time when the parent gets frustrated and angry at her child’s behaviour. The parent will wonder why her child is not having the food by herself.
  7. This situation will not arise if the parent and other family members accept that the child is ill and needs medical intervention.
  8. This feeling can later lead to a sense of resentment and anger. Family ties can be ruptured because the members would begin to think that their social activities depend upon the medical condition of their sick family member who needs constant attention.

I could not concentrate on my studies. Is it due to lack of sound sleep or due to extended hours of chatting in watsapp n facebook.

It is due to both factors that you mentioned. Taking care of your body needs is as important as social media and friends. Have a routine and stick to it. Don't keep chatting till late night and avoid sleep. Go to bed at a decent hour and have about 7 hours of sound sleep everyday. Establish a time table for your studies and stick to it. You must have time for friends and entertainment but don't overdo anything.

Hello sir. I am 20 years old. I have stammering problem. I can't speak properly. Friends make laugh on me. I can't speak to anyone due to stammering. I became frustrated. I can not attend any social program. Can't attend lectures or group discussions. I am a engineering student. But my life became hell for stammering. Sir how can I get rid from it?

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

Stammering can be made lesser only and only by Speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, I'd suggest you to visit a Psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

Lybrate-user just let go of this relation, at your age it feels like never ending but time will heal everything. Just keep yourself busy and have some goals in life, you will have many meaningful relationships, do not waste time and energy over this one.
