hi, according to the symptoms u told here your mother suffers from a panic attack. I would advise you to contact a good psychiatrist immediately whether she is having this attack or not. In this age due to some hormonal changes also these symptoms occur. So better if you first get her executive health check up done that includes some important blood tests and the major organs check up. All good hospitals are offering this check up now a days. For further discussion you may contact me by asking private question here on lybrate.

Dear, you must be able to distinguish between mental disease and mental disorder. Your problem is a mental disorder. Not a mental disease. These mental disorders are usually treated with a combination of medicines and other means like awareness, meditation, psychotherapy techniques, life style changes etc. I think two or three counseling sessions and psycho therapy techniques should solve your problem. Let me know if you are willing to undergo counseling sessions and tailor made psycho therapy through mobile. Take care.

Dear lybrate user. Welcome to lybrate. Anxiety disorders are a category of mental disorders characterized by feelings of anxiety and fear, where anxiety is a worry about future events and fear is a reaction to current events. When a person fears about something now (which may or may not happen in the future) and if he do it repeatedly, it is called anxiety disorder. These fear provoking feelings are called anxiety and it may cause variety of physical symptoms, such as a racing heart, restlessness, helplessness and shakiness. There are a number of anxiety disorders: including generalized anxiety disorder, a specific phobia, social anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and panic disorder among others. While each has its own characteristics and symptoms, they all include symptoms of anxiety. I need to know more about your anxiety so that I will be able to diagnose it properly and provide you counseling and psychotherapy to overcome and manage your anxiety. Take care.

Dear falling of 40-50 hair shafts per day is normal if it is exceeding then treatment is required. Take nourishing diet like milk, fruits, salad etc. Some moderate exercise is very helpful for improving blood circulation, avoid mental stress wear a suitable cap while going out in the sun as long exposure to sun is also responsible for premature graying of hairs. Homoeopathic treatment gives very good response in hair related problems you can opt for my hair fall & dandruff package which is available on lybrate.

Dearlybrater your aim is to reduce wt regarding food please take salad. Fruits. And any thing prepared by boiling, steam cooking or pressure cooking. Ie our rice chapatti and side dishes. Are ok avoid food prepared in ovens like cake biscuits. Avoid anything fried. Soft drinks and fruit juices contain too much sugar should be avoided. See eat well guide. Published by uk in the net. Dry fruits and nuts are also calorific. And limit to 4--5 numbers per day to reduce wt walk for 45 min daily covering 4 km is enough. You may develop joint problems if you overdo. But then you have to reduce your in take. Replace dinner with salads and fruits. Replace breakfast with some product from getrim. See net in this way you can reduce calories without loosing nutrients and reduce wt. May be 2 kg every month.

You are living a life of your parents. First you have to calm your self with breathing exercise and write down your feelings in it. When you settled down talk to your parents about your feeling and what you want in your life. Tell them softly but confidently that you can not live like this but you want to live with them because you love them. Accept them as they are but express your self. Don't think about anything wrong. If you want to take any help from us you can contact us.

Life is difficult anyway. You must learn to adapt and through discipline approach this fact without trying to change it: change yourself. Relationships are all about adjustment and if you cannot you are not made or you are not equipped as yet for intense relationships. These initial disagreements and differences are all about whether you can cope with it or not. Of course, adjustment is expected on both sides. If I am placing too much expectation on you alone then I am sorry and you could both reach out to a relationship counselor to help you both see sense. Since you love the girl and want her so badly, make the effort. But you also need to be careful that you do not play into her hands too much that she takes advantage of you all through your life together. Have a frank talk to her and if you hit a roadblock, go to a counselor for help.

Stammering is typically recognised by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realise they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation.

You are suffering with inferiority complex with depressive thoughts. You are injecting your mind. I am useless. If tell others I am useless. They will also express the same feeling. In society no one is not perfect. Everyone has their own problems. But they are not express and do not feel I am useless. If you are not capable on one work then select another work. Based on your work performance your confidence will improve. That may develop to overcome from your feelings. Every one has their own capacity realise and analyse your internal strengths based on that show your performance. Then you will enjoy the real taste of yourself. Feel confident. Learn from others and practise it. Enjoy the every movement of life. Best of luck.

Hi, I am a women of 29 years. I have not completed a year of my marriage. It is a love marriage after ten years of courtship. Though, my partner did not want to marry me as he got bored with me. He does not take care of me, but often he suddenly takes care. Though, it is very few. I want love and care from my husband. He never understands me and always stay busy in himself. Day by day I am getting depressed and sometime I think to suicide. But only for my parent I cannot take this step. If I am living then I want to be happy. I don't know what to do? Even sometime I hate myself and I do not see my face in mirror. I think I am headache for all. I want to live happy and make everyone happy including my husband. But I am unable. Day by day my confident is reaching the bottom. I am MA in English, but my husband always humiliates me and says that I am good for nothing. It hurts me very much, he never feels me and always treats me as a maid servant. Even he says that I am inferior to his pet dog. I cannot take this all this, but want to give chance to my marriage. I feel less energetic all the time and neglected too. Please say me what to do?

For such a long courtship, this can often be the result. Within a year of courtship marriage should have been initiated. There may be very many reasons for that I am sure and not all of them are good. Now that you are getting treated in this manner is something you should never allow anyone do so. And you should never die for any man unless you were in the process of saving him. You are fortunately an educated girl and with some street smartness you can at least get something done. When he is nice to you, grab him and go for marriage counseling. Be firm with him at other times, even if you want his love. He is treating you with abuse and disdain. You have become so disdainful of yourself because of his treatment that you have become your own worst enemy. You sound like someone with a serious rejection issue. You have to love yourself and take good care of yourself if you want him to love you. Not committing suicide for your parents sake is not the best of reasons: you need to love yourself so much that you will never do that to yourself, ever. So when you have exhausted all the chances for this marriage to work, then you can even call it off. Do not stay in a continuing relationship of abuse.

I am getting very angry on even small things happening around. I want to manage my anger and stress. Can someone please help me with these issues?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The way to manage anger is to express it all the time and every time. The only problem is that you must express it appropriately. None of the feelings are to be controlled. The way you express them is the issue. Now anger is pure energy and people mistakenly think that they must express anger violently, or aggressively, or they can damage something, or throw a fit, or kill, or hurt, or withdraw, etc. These expressions can be followed, if they are appropriate to the situation. You can instead simply talk about the feeling, write about it and share it with someone who understands, scream and shout in a situation which warrants it and so on. When the expression is most suitable, the repercussions are minimized and the other person tends to understand and is willing to apologize and sort out the matter. Many of us are inclined to worry about the consequences of expressing anger and use fear to suppress the legitimate expression. You can exorcise your anger out of your system by exercising, but it is the energy that is expended not the feeling. Unexpressed feelings will hurt you back by clinging on to a favorite organ and troubling it enough to cause it to malfunction or lead to its total dysfunction. You can also hand over the feeling to God, if you are a spiritual person, and very effectively too. Now, it is also wise to find out why you get angry: is it too fast, is it too high, or is it without provocation? These will help you to determine whether it is worth getting angry at all, in some instances. These can be discussed with a counselor, in case you are still having problems.
