Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Depression, panic disorder, ptsd and general anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured. I wish to know who diagnosed you? the process is a bit lengthy and could take any period between one year to 2 years according to the depth of the anxiety problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Keep the period of treatment in mind, prepare yourself to take up the treatment and consult a psychologist online or in person. Take care.

What exactly happens when the anxiety attacks and what is the impact on our brain. What is the best way to get rid of it when you are in group of people.

MD - Homeopathy, BHMS
Homeopath, Ahmedabad
Dear lybrate-user, most people having anxiety attacks experiencing a considerable amount of stress, but not necessarily, and the attack doesn't necessarily occur when that person is experiencing the most stress either. Usually an anxiety attack begin because someone notice some feeling in their body. This is when your mind (unconsciously) monitors your body. Most of the time this attack is associated with self health issues. It includes, rapid heartbeat, chest pain, lightheadedness, difficulty breathing, trouble focusing, weakness, pain, trouble with balance. These all are starting of the attack. It gets worse as it progresses. You can stop it by distracting the attention of that person.

Can I have sex with my gf? We r in a relationship for 1 year happily. We are 18 years of age? Is it healthy for us?Please tell.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

Not at all. Sex is something that is sacred and must be had ideally in a committed situation. I know I sound old fashioned but if you do have sex just like that it is quite a disrespect to the girl and to sex. If you ever get married later, you will have nothing new to offer in the legally permissible situation! So it is up to you to either listen to me or go your own way but if you regard this person, then you will not even put her under any pressure. Even if both of you want it, it is not advised. That is why you should never put yourselves in a situation where this becomes possible and tempting.

I know I overeat at meals, but I can't help it. If I limit my portions, I'm hungry an hour later. How can I avoid overeating and have better control of my appetite? My stomach aches, thought it becomes fine in a day, but still it pains regularly, what to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I think you have an emotional eating disorder. You need to identify the emotion that is behind the excessive eating: are you sad, angry, afraid or happy that you tend to want to eat every time? When you have done that it is as simple as addressing the feeling that feeds into the over-eating and you will cease to have a problem. This can be done with a counselor, ideally. Many of us over-eat when emotionally distraught. I don't know if you are over-weight and for some people weight gain is an effect of the depression. Apart from that it is likely that your metabolism might have reduced considerably making you susceptible to gain weight even with small quantities of food. If you still want to eat (I mean healthy food of course), you can consume more, if you did some noteworthy exercise, after getting approval from your doctor. Exercise boosts your metabolic rate and help produce anti-depressant quite naturally. Foods also boost metabolism: egg whites, lean meat, water, chili peppers, coffee, green tea, milk, whole grains, and lentils. Cucumber is a zero calorie food and takes long to digest and much metabolism too. If you have it before each meal and any amount too, it will curb the amount of consumption - even tea and coffee has that effect. Even so, the addictive aspect of eating involves the obsession and compulsion i.e. your mind will be always thinking about food and then it will feed into a compulsion to consume something. So, if you occupy yourself, (not busy) then the mind will not think too much on food and therefore it will negate the compulsion.

Dear all I feeling very laziness all the time. And also feeling no interest towards any work. All the time I am feeling tried ness. I think I am suffering from depression, feeling fear to come in front of grp and also feeling fear to speak in front of grp. When I speak in front of peoples my heart rate increase and feeling uncomfortable. Kindly provide me the solution for this. I am badly suffering for this issues.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Good ​Morning, Feelings of laziness, lethargy, lack of energy, motivation and interest in work and things that you usually enjoyed doing in the past are all related to a debilitating condition called major depressive disorder. It can affect anybody and the lifetime incidence for such a disorder is 10-15% meaning to say that about 10-15 people in 100 will have this problem in their lifetime. I highly recommend that you consult a psychiatrist since you also seem to have social anxiety and both these conditions have effective therapy with medications and counseling.

For bad addictions psychotherapy helps very much. De addiction therapy is done by the psychologist. There is no side effects. It is always good. Do not use unnecessarily medicine. It will not work later. Only urgency period only we go to medicine. But you using small problems. But it is not good. Tension and stress may also caused for this addiction. You need to take relaxation therapy and behaviour modification therapy. Psychological counselling helps to you very much. Do not go to any other medical treatments. It is always best to consult psychologist. So better to consult. All the best. Best wishes.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. The best time tested method to reduce weight and cholesterol is physical exercise and games along with low fat low carb high fiber diet. There are no short cuts in reducing weight. Regarding cholesterol, raw garlic, honey, lemon, cinnamon, turmeric etc are known to reduce cholesterol. Include them in your daily diet. Please do not skip exercise. Take care.

Negative thoughts comes based on our thinking nature. What we give the mind think and react like that. You want innerly negative thoughts. Negative thoughts and words are giving much excitement. But it influences on our behaviour. I like vulgar language. If I use with my friends. I may enjoy with my words. But some times in counselling. It will come automatically with out intention. So I care much about using any words with my friends also. You are getting negative thoughts internally you like. So it is better to avoid negative thoughts. Think always positive aspects. Behave like a positive women. For time pass also do not think about negative aspects. That you cannt have a capability of digest. Read good books. Inspirational books. Watch good channels. Share your internal feelings with your close friends and relatives. Develop busy work schedule. Always involve any other work. Do not sit alone. Do not maintain calmness. Better to visit new places, movies, temples, relatives homes, when you feel bore call and talk with your friends. Do not think alone. It is better to share always. It is good to you. Ok all the best.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Exam Fear - Exam Phobia - Tips

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Exam Fear - Exam Phobia - Tips
Exam fear or exam phobia or exam anxiety is a performance anxiety. Examinations are almost always stressful. Students rarely know exactly what to expect on the test, and those who suffer from exam fear or exam anxiety can see their grades suffer as a result of this stress. A little anxiety can actually help your performance, but some students become so overwhelmed that they" seize up" and forget what they have studied. Exam anxiety can strike before, during and after a test. Battling this type of performance anxiety can be difficult, but good study habits and learning how to relax can help.

Step 1
Develop good study habits. Proper study habits and preparation are the keys to cutting out exam fear

Step 2
Keep your mind and body healthy by getting enough sleep, eating well and exercising.

Step 3
Meet with your instructor to aid in focusing your study sessions.

Step 4
Practice positive self-talk as you prepare for the test. Create a mantra to help you calm your test anxiety. Repeat a phrase, such as" I just need to do my best" or" I will be prepared for this test"

Step 5
Relax the night before your test. A last-minute review can help you remember facts, but fretting over last-minute studying is likely to cause you more anxiety.

Step 6
Beat the morning rush by waking up early. Give yourself time to eat a nutritious breakfast that won't weigh you down or feel greasy in your stomach.

Step 7
Manage your anxiety with relaxation exercises as you wait for the test to start.

Step 8
Scan the test to find questions that are easy. Answer those test questions to give yourself a confidence boost.

Step 9
Understand that you are not alone and ask for help as necessary. Exam fear is normal.

Step 10
Reward yourself after the test is over. The reward gives you the break you deserve after all of your studying. Treating yourself also helps you stop thinking about the test and analyzing every little mistake you may have made.

Please consult a psychologist for counseling and valuable tips.

I am 26 years old female I am not feeling well since 2, 3 months I was crying but I do not know why some times I know but sometimes not, what do I do.

Hi I think I am suffering from most of these symptoms of depression from last month. I am really fed of all things. I always suffered from severe headache please help me to get out of it.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

You are in an anger-related depression and need to meet with a counselor immediately and if that person feels you need to meet with a doctor too, you must do so. You must cooperate with both therapies and be consistent. I suggest that you visit these professionals along with your parents because their involvement is quite critical to your recovery. Would you know what may be causing so much anger and that you feel you cannot express it for various reasons? If it is of recent origin, you could easily pinpoint it and take care of it. But I suspect that it may have to do with something in your developmental years or your family background. In the meantime do the following, sincerely: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love: find someone to love and to love you back; even a pet will do good. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved.
