I am a 21 y/o girl currently entering my final year of Engineering. Due to family problems, I have, for the past 7 years, battled with:(1) Constant thoughts of worthlessness and deep hatred towards myself; constantly blaming myself when anything goes wrong (2) Constant worrying about the future as I can not seem to find my purpose in terms of a career (3) Inability to concentrate at tasks and poor recalling ability (4) My mind getting covered by a thick "blackness" that makes me feel nauseous and make me unable to remember or understand during times of extreme stress (like exams, leading to poor grades) (5) Difficulty in articulating my thoughts (6) Loss of interest in reading and dancing, which I used to enjoy earlier and inability to maintain interest in any hobbies (7) excessive eating when feeling sad or numb (8) Feelings of intense sadness; randomly crying due to hopelessness followed by complete numbness. I was a very bright student in school but now i'm struggling to finish Engineering with decent grades. I have already gone thorough episodes in the past where situations made the above symptoms so severe that I almost attempted suicide thrice but somehow pulled myself back. My parents have always told me to become stronger and that this will pass, but I have been able to "snap out of it" despite my best efforts. I would like to know: what exactly is wrong with me? And what are the exact steps I should follow for treatment if any? Please guide me.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Height is determined by heredity and there are no short cuts or miracle drugs. You are already 23. Beyond this age height nevef improves. Don't worry about it. 5 feet 6 inch is not as bad as a height. Don't be emotional. You need online counselling. Take care.

I am 23 years old I have bipolar effective disorder from 2009 and I am taking tablets now. If I got married it will not affect my child or not, what should I do?

Fellow Observership, Certificate in Forensic Psychology, MD-Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Akola
Bipolar affective disorder (bpad) tends to run in families. So if you get married & have children, there is a slight chance of your children also developing bpad at some point in their life. But its not 100% i. E. Its not always that they will have mental illness. Its just a chance factor. Plus if you take your medicines of bpad regularly, you will remain fine & can prove to be a very good husband & father. All the best!

Tempramental Issues Between Couples

Ph. D - Psychology

Tempramental Issues Between Couples

Marriage brings with it a whole new set of living standards. How much ever you know the other person, living with that person as a family is a different experience. There are things which annoy you as much as things that surprise you, leaving you excited and happy at times, annoyed and agitated at others.

It is often the small things that lead to temperamental issues between couples. And, different people have different tolerance limits. While some could ignore the small issues and throw tantrums only when there is some significant argument, for others, throwing their temperament could just be a way out to vent their anger. These bouts may appear and disappear in a matter of seconds to minutes. It is very important for the couple to understand each other’s limits and play accordingly. It is also important to complement each other so that both are not throwing tempers at the same time.

The following are some ways to manage temperamental issues between couples.

  1. Avoid arguments in the presence of other family members or friends
  2. It is always good to discuss sensitive things when in private
  3. Apologise if you know you said or did something wrong
  4. A direct conversation always helps clear the air
  5. Gradually learn to understand what will irritate your spouse and try to avoid it
  6. Be accepting of and respect your spouse as he/she is
  7. Learn to ignore the small things and not fight over them
  8. Learn to tolerate the negative aspects of your spouse
  9. Learn not to talk about the past, it will only add to the hatred and bitterness
  10. Try to discuss the problem in an outside soothing environment than at home
  11. Listen to your spouse, don’t just vent out your feelings and thoughts
  12. Reach an agreement where both are benefited (emotionally)
  13. Do not ignore small problems, learn to give importance to your spouse’s feelings and thoughts
  14. Give each other space and privacy once in a while
  15. Learn and encourage a hobby with genuine interest, whatever be it
  16. Always show that you love and care, nothing works like a warm hug

When in a temperamental fit, ask yourself if it is really important, consider the big picture. In 99% of the situations, it would not be. Just let it go. Fight only when you really have to.
For a couple, it is not about who won the fight or the argument. It always pays to be kind and fight only when really important. Almost all differences can be sorted out by talking out responsibly in a mature manner and with love. A sorry here, a thank you there and your love will go a long way in resolving issues and a happy married life. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist.

Mashallah I have no disease but how can I control on my smoking habit, help me out from this universal disease.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest.

My husband is suffering from OCD and delusion of infidelity. Our bond is breaking down.. Need help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Because OCD is founded on fear, there is bound to be some level of suspiciousness. Meet with a counselor first and then if that person recommends a psychiatrist to deal with this issue, do visit one as soon as possible along with him. Please take his parents with you to determine the possible developmental issues that may have contributed to this condition. This is a fear-based condition and for some reason he has not been dealing with this childhood fear which has now developed unto these repetitive adaptations to seem to need it for normal functioning. The behavior will then become based on magical thinking and certain rituals will become necessary to do normal things making him believe that either the frequency or the ritual is important to its success. This of course is a fallacy but there will come a time that even if told the truth, his belief will defy any logic and he will continue behaving like that even if it cripples him in his daily routines. It only appears as though some other force is behind these behaviors and that he is compelled to act in this fashion. That is obviously not true but no one can convince him of anything different. The obsession is a repeating thought pattern with no meaningful outcome; and the compulsiveness is the need to act on those obsessions also in a repeated behavior pattern as though he just cannot help himself. There are certain behavioral techniques to be implemented and if they work he may get out of this condition rather easily. If that does not work as desired, then medication has to be introduced, and in combination with counseling much work can be achieved. You may need to parallelly go for marital counseling to address the fear of infidelity.

Psychologist, Hyderabad
Dear lybrate-user, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) lungs mixes oxygen in blood and it purifies our blood, by smoking we are mixing not only oxygen adding and mixing bad elements like nicotine etc. In oxygen, that spoils our blood and our body all organs like lungs, heart, kidney etc. In our body. How to quit: by willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" reduce one by one day by day. If you need any support have counseling help counselling means (caring conversation between doctor with patient motivates and helps in healing the person better than medicines)
