My brother is 14 years old. Since his childhood he posses with very aggressive nature, stubborn, and very selfish. He can stand with anyone & he don't have any friend. He always think of himself that's why he fought with every one n don't listen to any one and got irritated on small things. Once we can consider this a personality trait or variety in child behavior. But he doesn't think & speak according to his age. He is 14 n talks likes a 8-10 years boy. He got irritated on very small things. Sometimes without any reason n when he is angry he gets mad, he hurt himself physically, slaps himself very tightly, eat rotten things & vegetables peels, once he dipped his slipper in tea n drink dat. He licks slipper also. He often threaten us that he will kill himself, send him to orphanage, I don't want to live long, everyone scolds me, no one can stop this at dat time, physically also he can't be control, he throw things, clothes, mobile etc. And few time he wounded himself wife fork, once threatening with knife. And he don't want to go school, he got irritated on teachers. About one - one month he didn't go to exams even sometimes skip his exams also. He got beaten very badly 4 dis thing bt nothing works, he is used to with this. Ne never cries when he was beaten, nor a single tear appears into his eyes. He'll die bt nvr go. No power on earth can change his mind. Even I got hurts wen I saw this and marks on his body bt de did not feel anything n after some time he behaves normally. Don't have any regret that is doing wrong. No stress or pain can not be seen on his face. Infact he fully enjoys whole day. And in addition he make high demands n few times he put conditions for going school. And wen his demand get full filled he happily go 2-4 day again got irregular. He is in 8th standard and I didn't think he had continuously attend d school more than a week. We have changed so many schools bt he never get comfortable in any school. Till 3rd he was comfortable but nor regular there also. He always got 94-98% till den. Bt after completed dat primary school he is transformed. He don't have adjusting & compromising nature not even for his parents or siblings. He loves his family a lot n also can't live without us. But for him HE himself comes first. On 5 JUNE OUR "MOM EXPIRED" due to Cancer. He lover her a lot n got pampered by her a lot. She was d only one who calm down her mostly & convince him to go school. He always sleep wit mom. He calls her to make him sleep. N after that she can go. BT now he never talks about her n did not said to anyone dat he misses her. 4-5 days he talks abt her. He has very easily excepted her death. Dat was surprising. It was not easy for his age. We were in hospital n was mentally prepared. He calls every hour to know abt her n we never tell d truth n said pray 4 her. He was very concern n whole time pray 4 her. Now he is 2 times more arrogant n rude, n dangerous for himself. He has quit his studies, whole day wat h TV or play games on mob. N always laying on bed whole day. Very rarely he sits when he is asked to do. In dat also he gets irritated. Now he never talks politely wid us esp wen we asked about him or his hygiene. He has become so lazy that he CNT give one glass water to anyone. That's a huge burden 4 him. His body reaction n face expressions reveal every thing. Sometimes he is talks very friendly. Wen ever I got sick he do a lot work. Make tea 4 me. Bring everything which I asked. Days d whole story & in this session he has attended classes max 10 days. He had d worst bad habit of chewing sweet flavoured supari. Since 6-8 months he is addicted to that BT now from a month he is eating 20-25 packets per day. Sometimes more dis also. His health is getting down. Whats can be d reason 4 his behaviour. Now its at peak and effected by his. Addiction also. Dat doesn't contains tobacco bt there is something in dat which makes him addicted to this level. Once I have eaten dat head started shaking 4 few sec. N rechecking dis twice, result was d same. Even I also got effected n wanted to eat that again. He is trying to leave bt his efforts fail every time. Since last 4 days he has reduced to 2-3packets n sometimes whole day he did not eat. We can't blame mom's death or eating supari as since childhood he is irritating n runs away from school. Now that had increase to max. He didn't listen to anyone nor he is afraid of anything. Sometimes listen to me bt put one desire or demand. 1. What's d permanent solution of this problem? We are now polite with him and dealing him with love n didn't force 4 anything, bt this alone can't work. 2.Did I need to refer a neuro-physician first. May be he had some hormonal disturbance/disbalance since childhood. 3.Or is this a complete psychological case?
Sir I am not suspicious and I watched a video on paranoid disorder patient and I feel that I didn't have much of this disorder because I am free to every one except when girls see me. I didn't separate my self from society, people or anyone else. Sir I made myself strong ethically so as to not feel any change in my sense of response with others. So now from two weeks I am feeling somewhat good.

REDUCTION OF RIGIDITY IN PARKINSONISM
Rigidity has been found to reduce, to some extent, by generalized relaxation technique. Generalized relaxation can be obtained by vestibular stimulation that can be achieved by various rocking techniques. Rocking can be achieved by the use of adult vestibular ball, rocking or rotating chair, and cradle. Rhythmic initiation, which is a technique of PNF, can be used to reduce rigidity. This technique, which involves progression of exercise from passive to active assisted to active without any increase in tone, has been found to be very effective in reducing rigidity of the trunk.
Generalized relaxation techniques like Jacobson’s technique of progressive relaxation, yogasana, transdental meditation, biofeedback, savasana, etc. can also be used.

I have a major problem when it comes to studying. I'm a pretty clever guy, I've always done well in exams but for these past two years my exam anxiety took a turn for the worse. Every time I start to prepare for my exams, everything just falls out of place. I can't study at all. I would have everything I need a good timetable, all my notes ready, plenty of time in advance and then it all goes downhill from there. Whenever I try to study I get awful panic attacks. First it starts with "okay I'm going to try my best! I want to study for 15 minutes and finish these pages! I can do this! but for some reason it turns into paralyzing fear. I try to read over my notes but my mind shuts down, I start to lose breath and then feel so immensely nauseous that I end up having to leave my room because it feels like I'm about to throw up. The panic attack keeps on getting worse and I end up walking around the entire house through all the rooms for hours just feeling like I'm unable to breathe and control my thoughts, not being aware that I'm actually doing this and that it's been hours. Then I start to feel incredibly incompetent and pathetic and cry, whilst still panicking. At the end of the day I would have spent hours without end panicking and crying, even to the point where I can't bring myself to go back to my room (where I study) to try again. The day would have gone to waste and the self-hatred begins to unleash, making it all worse. It's not that I don't want to study. I actually really want to do well and feel proud of myself. I don't understand why this happens every single time to the point where it's a few days before the exam and the panic attacks have become much worse. One more big problem is that I experience very much negative thoughts and vulgar thoughts even about god. Without any reason. The problem is that my parents think that this is all a silly act and that it stems from a lack of proper time management and procrastination. I have exams in 15 days and I have still enough time to ace them if I can bring myself to stop panicking. All this happens with high intensity when I am far away from my home i mean I lived in hostel in a city away from my home. But when I am home then intensity is reduced still I can't study I plan much but study a little. please help.

Life has its ups and downs, but often we hold on to the downs for much longer than the actual event. While the trigger or anger, pain and hurt are beyond our control, the amount it can affect us is well within reach. Here are a few ways to cope better with emotional upsets.
- Give yourself a window to be upset: Be realistic and give yourself a time frame to give in to your emotions. Whether, angry, sad or frustrated tell yourself that you have only 1 day to be upset. In a way, this will diffuse the anger, frustration and once this time is over, you can start planning ahead.
- Take responsibility: Try analysing what you may have done to make the other person react in the way he or she did. Focus on what you could have done better and you will find yourself feeling more empowered.
- Get physical: Exercise and other forms of physical activity decrease stress hormones and increases the productions of endorphins or happy hormones that elevate the mind. Exercising also gives you time to focus on yourself without distractions.
- Express yourself: Whether it’s through art or writing, find an outlet for your emotions. This keeps it from being bottled up inside and gets the pain and frustration out of your system.
- Breathe: Breathing techniques like ujayii and anulom vilom can help calm the mind down when it is troubled and upset. These breathing techniques also keep your emotions from escalating.
- Get company: It is never a good idea to isolate yourself when you’re feeling blue. Instead, find people who you can open up to and share your thoughts with. This will give you a fresh perspective on what is going on.
- Look at both sides: No event is ever completely bad. No matter what may be troubling you look at both the good and bad sides of it. This can help minimise your loss and make it easier to let go of the problem.
- Do something different: The best way to get your mind off something is to give it something else to focus on. If you’re troubled by something that happened at work, go for a drive or play a sport. Similarly, if you’re having relationship trouble, go out with a few friends or read a book to take your mind off it.
- Visualize: Imagine the person or the event that is upsetting you as an object in your mind and visualise it melting away. Remind yourself that the anger or frustration you are feeling is worse than the person or event itself.
- Clean up: Organise your desk, your room or start cleaning up space around you. This will take attention away from whatever is troubling you and give you something to do. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
