Hello sir, I want to ask that sir my mom has a habit of cleaning things too much and she use to wash her hands too much these actions of her are symptoms of ocd and you prefer any treatment Please. Thank you.

This can be a crippling disease, if not treated soon. She will need to meet with a counselor and psychiatrist and work with both medication and therapy for any reasonable success. She needs to work with a counselor for some behavior modification program to expose her to the situations that cause obsessions and compulsions to gradually de-condition her. OCD is not a lifelong disorder and will over time reduce in intensity. Therapy hastens this process and together with the medication she can work through it better. It is related to fear and so emotional therapy will go a long way to alleviate symptoms and the underlying causes. She needs to stay committed and remain cooperative right through the treatment. To reduce the frequency of repeated behavior patterns (compulsions) she needs to get rid of the obsessions (repeating thought patterns that are non-productive). She needs to maintain a log of regular activities and keep ticking it off of a log book and refer to the log to verify whether she has done a particular job or not. Over a period of time she can test herself to see if she remembers that she has done a particular task without listing it in the log book. Over time she can make two tasks, and so on. She will be very frustrated about her obsessions and may become irritable over small matters. So be patient and help her in this task fulfillment, and she will do fine soon. The bottom line is that there is fear and she needs to deal with that fear for all things to return to normal. This fear then shows up in the fear of infection and hygiene.

My question is when I AM IN Period time SO I AM VERY anger & HIT FAMILY MEMBER & throw it all & my problem is last 15 year SO any solution ya tablets.

Psychologist,
You seem to be going through hormonal imbalance due to which anger is more. Firstly, please see a gynaecologist for a check up and then meet a counsellor for anger management because I sense that you are having some stress and tension in your life which you are trying to manage by showing your anger. This might solve the problem initially or put it away for some time but in the longer run, you are damaging your own self esteem and close relationships. You will benefit from learning more amicableways of talking and putting across your points so that you don hurt other members. Counting upto 10 before talking generally helps to contain anger. Thinking about whether is it with fighting and spoiling my mood will help yu decide how important this matter to you is. Going away from the situation, cooling down by deep breathing and going through your reasons for getting angry. Before periods, please reduce junk food to the minimum. Exercise everyday so that you are feeling good about yourself and burnt off excess energy.

You have to divert your mind practically and avoid using phone unnecessarily and your willpower is very important .10 Natural Depression Treatments Being depressed can make you feel helpless. But Along with therapy and sometimes medication, there's a lot you can do on your own to fight back. Changing your behaviour – your physical work, lifestyle, and even your way of thinking -- are all natural depression treatments .these tips can help you feel better -- starting right now. 1. Get in a routine. If you’re depressed, you need a routine depression can strip away the structure from your life. One day melts into the next. Setting a gentle daily schedule can help you get back on track. 2. When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself. "Start very small,” "Make your goal something that you can succeed at, like doing the dishes every other day. As you start to feel better, you can add more challenging daily goals. 3. Exercise- It temporarily boosts feel-good chemicals called endorphins. It may also have long-term benefits for people. Regular exercise seems to encourage the brain to rewire itself in positive ways. How much exercise do you need? You don’t need to run marathons to get a benefit. Just walking a few times a week can help. 4. Eat healthy. There is no magic / special; diet that corrects depression. It's a good idea to watch what you eat, though. If depression tends to make you overeat, getting in control of your eating will help you feel better. Although nothing is definitive, there’s evidence that foods with omega-3 fatty acids (such as fish) and folic acid (such as spinach) could help ease depression. 5. Get enough sleep. Depression can make it hard to get enough sleep and can make depression worse. What can you do? Start by making some changes to your lifestyle. Go to bed and get up at the same time every day. Try not to nap. Take all the distractions out of your bedroom -- no computer and no TV. In time, you may find your sleep improves. 6. Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can work as a natural depression treatment. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment. If you're not up to full-time school or work, that’s fine. Think about part-time. If that seems like too much, consider volunteer work. 7. Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions. You might feel like no one likes you, but is there real evidence for that? You might feel like the most worthless person on the planet, but is that really likely? It takes practice, but in time you can beat back those negative thoughts before they get out of control. 8. Check with your doctor before using supplements. "There's promising evidence for certain supplements for depression, Those include fish oil, folic acid. Always check with your doctor before starting any supplement, especially if you’re already taking medications 9. Do something new. When you’re depressed, you’re in a rut. Push yourself to do something different. Go to a museum. Pick up a used book and read it on a park bench. Volunteer at a soup kitchen. Take a language class. "When we challenge ourselves to do something different, there are chemical changes in the brain, "Trying something new alters the levels of [the brain chemical] dopamine, which is associated with pleasure, enjoyment, and learning. 10. Try to have fun. If you’re depressed, make time for things you enjoy. What if nothing seems fun anymore? "That's just a symptom of depression, You have to keep trying anyway. As strange as it might sound, you have to work at having fun. Plan things you used to enjoy, even if they feel like a chore. Keep going to the movies. Keep going out with friends for dinner. When you're depressed, you can lose the knack for enjoying life, you have to relearn how to do it. In time, fun things really will feel fun again.
