I am 65, male suffering from too much of anxiety. The other day when I went to board a train to go to Guruvayur, someone stopped me and started enquiring about my journey, claiming to be policemen. They let me off, when my wife, who was coming far back, came and questioned as to what is going on. The duo said that there were bad elements, out to deceive passengers of their belongings and so they called me to warn me to be careful. After this I am afraid to going to the station to board any train. This kind of fear occurs often and I keep imagining about some bad situation, blow it out of proportion and make not only myself miserable but others around me. Several times I have been confronted by people in railway station, bus stand, etc. Like this and duped of money and valuable and this has left a deep impression leading to awful anxiety. How to overcome this?

Dear, these type of problem and negative thoughts are due to obsessive thoughts. Obsessive thoughts are common for everyone. But for everyone, these thoughts happen for a certain amount of time, say 24 hours. Then, they recover mainly because they get themselves busy in some other areas of their life. That is what you have to do. Get yourself engaged in some other areas of life. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, take a home pregnancy test. You can buy it from any chemist store, as soon as possible. If it is negative then there is nothing to worry about. Just relax and avoid stress for some days, using contraceptive pills can also cause disturbance in periods. Hope this helps.

At your age this claim is serious. If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue, related to anger, that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: 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. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. 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. Discuss your suicidal thoughts with the counselor and remember your life has just begun and you should not do something stupid impulsively. Life is extremely precious and when you sort out the matters, you will love and appreciate life to the fullest. Life is challenging and that is true for everyone.

Im 20 and im suffering from hand shaking from few days im worried. I drink alcohol daily. Is it related to it.
Yes, it is related if your consumption is heavy. You must quit immediately. If you smoke too, the handshaking would become even more pronounced. It does not matter when you feel like drinking, as long as you need your drink. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

Points to make yoursel mentally happy.

1) The past has no power over the present moment.

2) Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.

3) The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.

4) Always say ?yes? to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? what could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say ?yes? to life ? and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.

5) Being spiritual has nothing to do with what you believe and everything to do with your state of consciousness.

6) Accept ? then act. Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it. Always work with it, not against it.

7) You do not become good by trying to be good, but by finding the goodness that is already within you, and allowing that goodness to emerge. But it can only emerge if something fundamental changes in your state of consciousness.

8) As soon as you honor the present moment, all unhappiness and struggle dissolve, and life begins to flow with joy and ease. When you act out the present-moment awareness, whatever you do becomes imbued with a sense of quality, care, and love ? even the most simple action.

9) The moment that judgement stops through acceptance of what it is, you are free of the mind. You have made room for love, for joy, for peace.

10) When you don?t cover up the world with words and labels, a sense of the miraculous returns to your life that was lost a long time ago when humanity, instead of using thought, became possessed by thought.

He may benefit partially from speech therapist. As of today there is not cure for autism. Behavior therapy, speech therapy, social therapy etc can bring about a mild change in his inherent behavior.

My wife was went to her parents home before 4 months bcoz my job loss. She come before 15 days but her behavior has changed. She has concerns with my current job salary. I found some call recordings which she was talking with her mother. Her mother guiding her not to cooperate. She using abuse language towards me and my family. She is giving threat and tell my wife to look out with me after when we give birth to a baby. She told not to roam with me and not to believe on me. So I am mentally stressed.

I think that she is concerned about the future of her daughter, especially if you have lost your job. It seems you have not been responsible to both be unable to keep a job and in the middle of that to have a kid too. I guess that anyone will be worried. Even if your MIL has instructed your wife, you have to develop a relationship of trust with her and give her assurances that you will be responsible. If she still gives you trouble then meet with a marriage counselor and get some help. If the counselor confronts her​ mother's influence that will be more effective and acceptable.

Every time I think about sex .this distract me to achieve my goal . Please suggest me.
It is very very normal to have the thoughts and feelings of sex at your age. In fact, if someone of your age says that he/she has no such thoughts it means that he/she is lying or has some physical/ physiological problem(s). The first thing you have to do is to avoid the guilt-feeling that it is wrong to have such thoughts. I would suggest you a few things: You can practice a habit of alloting a particular time everyday to actively think about sex, which may give you a control over it. You can distract yourself from such intrusive thoughts by stopping the task at hand (whenever you feel disturbed by the thought) and move to some other places and have a talk with other persons like parents, siblings or friends. By understanding the fact that postponing these kind of momentary pleasures and focussing at your goal will give you a life long benefit in both areas, on the flip side, if you loose your goal at the cost of mere thougt-level pleasure your future will be doomed.

Please seek help from a psychologist. You definitely need help through this phase of life. You need to make a new beginning and getting out of past would be extremely difficult and may leave lifelong scars. So, if you can afford, start seeing a psychologist immediately.

Dear, please understand medicines alone cannot cure anxiety. Also understand anxiety is body' s natural defense mechanish amd cannot be cured completely. Understanding anxiety and managing unwanted anxiety is the key. Psychotherapy, meditation, exercise together with medicines are used for management of anxiety.

Normal stammering happens to all. But when it's out of control we call it stuttering. In this case coping mechanisms lag in us. Speech therapy definitely helps. Yeah its psychogenic, you need to understand it better. Speech therapy must help.

Do not fear better to taik, all women are not rejected. Now generation is changed now women also needs friendliness. Better to make good friend. Do not talk like collge boy or lover, women likes good friendly nature men. Do not prefer sex thoughts in middle of the conversation. Do not feel when talk to them. Start with small words later go good conversation. Good luck.
