I am always thinking about small small things. I am not relaxed and unsatisfied until it gets solved may it be very small and unimportant thing or a task. So any thought stuck into my mind I keep on thinking and problem worsens. My ability to tackle, manipulate conditions in life thus has been decreased. I have been completely indecisive. My attitude is very negative. I am always anxious even for very little little things. So there is 24 hrs headache. Sleep disturbances, lot of dreams (normal according to day today activities. And good thing is I have complete insight & I am trying get out of it. Suffering since 3 years. Now has been worsened does any path have any considerably effective, relatively quick remedy on this?

I'm sorry to hear about these difficulties of yours. There are various options available to help you expedite the process of recovery, both medicine based, and otherwise. Considering the problems you've mentioned, I suggest that you get in touch with a psychiatrist. The sooner you get help, the lesser the long term damage to your mind and body would be. Three years is a very long time to have trudged along with such significant issues. All the best, and take care.

Hello lybrate user. Gadget and internet addiction is a growing problem today. It has almost taken the identity of a person in our life without whom we get anxious and depressed. It is difficult but can be taken care by many of the techniques including exposure and response prevention that is sit with the laptop in front of you but deliberately and forcibly restrict yourself to touch it or start it. In the start it may be very difficult and anxiety provoking but remember that if you give a freeze response for just a few minutes say 15 to 20 mins, you will find that after reaching a peak your distress starts to melt and that you are able to handle your urge to not use it. It needs practice for sure and may be assistance and help from somebody else initially. The other long term practice I suggest you to learn is the mindfulness practice. We have created a virtual reality around us that actually consists of just materialistic aspects and missions one after the other. This has decreased our ability to actually perceive things as reality around us and ourselves as it is. With mindfulness what we learn is to look at things non-judgementally and effectively which allows us a better self control over ourselves and our lives. For an initial while if your anxiety is too much you can be given medications for the same. If you want to learn more about mindfulness sessions or for medications you may contact.

10 Reasons Why You Should Quit Smoking Right Now!

10 Reasons Why You Should Quit Smoking Right Now!
Smoking is less socially acceptable these days. Most workplaces, shopping malls, theaters and stores prohibit smoking.

Many government entities are enacting laws to ban smoking from all indoor public places, including bars and restaurants. However, despite all these steps, this very expensive habit is still prevalent in society.

Mostly people start smoking as teens, and they are addicted by the time they reach adulthood. There are many different reasons why people smoke. They can start out of curiosity, peer pressure, a desire to fit in with a group or look older and mature, or even to rebel.

It can also be influenced by parental example or used as a means to reduce stress and feel more relaxed. In some countries like the united states, the impact of advertising and media is waning as governments have restricted such practices, but it continues in many parts of the world.

According to the centers for disease control and prevention, an estimated 43.8 million americans smoke. It is the leading cause of preventable deaths in the u. S.

Smoking kills more people than obesity, substance abuse, infectious diseases, firearms and traffic accidents.

There are about 600 ingredients in cigarettes that when burned create more than 7, 000 chemicals. Some of the most harmful chemicals released in cigarette smoke are nicotine, tar, carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, formaldehyde, arsenic, ammonia, lead, benzene, butane, cadmium, hexamine, toluene and lots more.

These chemicals are harmful to the smoker as well as those exposed to secondhand smoke.

This habit is very difficult to break. Even when cutting down on cigarettes, you begin to go into a withdrawal phase and experience a variety of symptoms like headaches, fatigue, irritability and nicotine cravings.

But there are many reasons to quit, not the least of which are improving your health and saving your hard-earned money.

Dear, a normal human takes oxygen into lungs 15 -20 times per minute (15 - 20 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 blood and 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

Dear Prakash, Sleep disturbances are common in depression and other mental disorders. There are other causes for sleep disturbances. You can get sleep study done to diagnose your problem. It will be done by overnight stay in the sleep lab with all sorts of wires connected with you. One diagnosed, you will get proper treatment. Please do NOT use alprazolam. At your age, you may become dependent on it and go on increasing the dose with no further benefit. Dreams are a part of sleep. There is nothing to worry about. Let all your fears go in the dreams so that your day time will be better.

Severe depression can make one feel helpless and life worthless to live. How ever let me assure you depression like any other illness is treatable and once you are out of it, life is worth living. I would sincerely suggest you to talk to anyone you trust and consult a psychiatrist. Start treatment urgently along with counseling. Also follow some suggestions - never stay alone - ask some one to stay with you 24 x 7 - whenever you have negative thoughts, don't keep it to you, just talk it out with anyone - be with family, friends and people who comfort you consult again in case of any queries or assistance required.

Your worrying about your future and career could be the reason that stress may be the cause of your acidity. You must meet with a counselor and take some measures to alleviate your stress. Stress management classes will certainly help too. Your must watch your diet to reduce acidity (include a lot of probiotics in your food intake), and you must start an exercise program too. Make sure you get good sleep every day. Our mind can disturb our body by a whopping 98% with stress and cause a lot of psychosomatic problems. You calm your mind, you heal your body.

This is all stress and worries of life. May be issues of married life, you may be having insecurities and fear. Just relax. Ask yourself what bothers you? have a positive self-talk, and learn what are those things you don't like. You need to accept your self and move on. You need to take care of your lifestyle and learn to be happy. If you cant do it yourself, meet a life coach/ stress management super-specialist like me. Once you open your heart out, you will feel free and begin to fly in life. I assure you that I can manage this and help u. You may consult me.

There are some steps you can take to help yourself. Try to do something fun to forget about being homesick, think positively about your job and your future to feel better.

Try to keep your focus positive its important to look at the good side of your work profile and new opportunities. Give yourself time, you should be realize that new situations take time to get use to and that you will probably always miss home to some extent, but over the time feeling of homesickness will decrease in intensity and number of episodes. Thanks.

Zaptra and depran belong to the same class of anti-depressant. If you didn't have any sexual side-effects with depran, then it is unlikely you may get any from zaptra. However, the known side effects are prolonged ejaculation, difficulty in orgasm and sometimes decreased sexual desire.

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. You can do hot water steaming for headache and for body pain you can take bath in hot water.

Being a regular smoker, motivational therapy with a trained psychotherapist or a psychiatrist and enormous will power will help you quit. If you are a diseased smoker, consult a de addiction psychiatrist at the earliest. He may give you anti-addiction medications and de addiction treatment. Medicines like bupropion and verinicline also help in treating addiction of smoking or chewing tobacco. One can get the prescription of the same from a qualified psychiatrist.

Dear lybrate-user. Laughing a lot unnecessarily and starts talking irrelevant. You have to observe her more. What you think irrelevant may be relevant for her. Talk to her friends and get their opinion, and feedback. Then we will decide. For the time being, let her complete the studies. Take care.

You cannot have memory problems at the age of 26 unless you have any shock or wasting or brain degenerating diseases. Simple and routine memory problems occur to everyone because of their overwhelming tasks or overwhelming lazyness. This cannot be considered as memory loss. If you have memory problems, keep things in writings according to priority. Take care.
