Anxiety has all to do with fear and your inability (or so you would tend to think) to handle the same. Fear is based on looking too much into the future and imagining things that usually do not tend to happen (usually 90% of your fears will not happen). You need to change your perception of the fearful stimulus then you can change your response to the fear. The first one is the best and will preempt the need for the second. If you are already far gone into the reaction mode, then you need both responses to counter the attack. The way we see things in life (like half empty or half full glass) is very dependent on our attitude. Attitude may have developed over many years but fortunately can change in a matter of sustained choices made and acted up on now. Accordingly you choose to see things as either threatening or as an opportunity. The opportunist will be positive and work with the situation to make good out of it. The individual who sees it as threatening, will, out of fear, try to avoid/run away from the situation or react with anxiety. Yes, self-belief does impact it too, but you can see that prior to that, perception will tarnish the belief system too. Here, you can see that all the resolution lies in just changing your perception/attitude, even if it is against odds. Changing your response, despite the perception, is building up of your reserves and resources to handle any contingency that life throws up at you. And life throws up situations quite regularly and heavily. For this you need to develop a fit mind and body: The former, by meditation and mind exercises; and the later, by exercises and proper diet. You need good sleep too. Included in the development of the mind is the handling of emotions, in your case, fear. These changes will give you a handle on life and your perceptions and responses. Prayer is really powerful, if you are a spiritual person. Repeat some personally framed affirmations that are geared to calming you down and building confidence. Do a personality course too. Anything that develops you personally will be of great assistance in building resilience.

Write what is causing you stress and try to see things from different perspective. Over focusing on issues brings unnecessary stress and anxiety.

Dear lybrate-user. Welcome to lybrate. I can understand. Loosing someone near and dear is called grief and depression related to grief is pretty normal. But this sort of depression does not stay for long. This depression gets cleared within a span of some weeks. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

I have been diagnosed as BIPOLAR II. I have read that BIPOLAR II is not a real disorder and is made to be a disorder in order for the pharma companies to make profit. Is it true? If I do have BIPOLAR II I have heard there is no cure for it and it is only treatable. Does that mean that lifelong I have to live with this disorder?

And the remedies to overcome depression.
Please help.
Hello, There is no single cause of depression. You can develop it for different reasons and it has many different triggers. For some, an upsetting or stressful life event – such as bereavement, divorce, illness, redundancy and job or money worries – can be the cause. take Kali phos 30 ch , 5 drops once daily. If your BP is normal then take Ginseng 1x, 1 tab once daily after meals. Revert me after 10 days.

I am 22 years old female. I am having OCD since two years. I am having Fluxoin, Lonzep, ModAlert tablets. Yet I am not able to completely overcome my OCD. I have OCD while studying. I repeat lines and sentences when I study. I have a very anxious nature. When I am tensed, I do the repetitive actions more. I am not finding any relief from medicines I am taking and counselling I am going through, I still have OCD. I want to know some tips and suggestions so as to deal with OCD and also reduce my anxiety and lead a happy life.

Psychiatrist, Jalna
Hello , ocd is a difficult disorder to treat, but with proper treatment and behaviour therapy, you can experience significant relief, such that it will no longer affect your studying or day to day activities. Drugs like fluvoxamine need to be taken at an adequate dose for 6-12 weeks to see measurable results. You haven't mentioned the dose and duration of the drugs mentioned. Besides, if still there is inadequate relief, there are numerous augmentation medicines which can be given along with fluvoxamine. Take care. Consult privately for more help" stop obsessing" is a book that I would recommend to help you overcome ocd.

Society Phobia

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Alappuzha
Society Phobia

Feelings of shyness or discomfort in certain situations aren't necessarily signs of social anxiety disorder, particularly in children. Comfort levels in social situations vary, depending on the individual's personality traits and life experiences. Some people are naturally reserved and others are more outgoing.

In contrast to everyday nervousness, social anxiety disorder includes fear, anxiety and avoidance that interferes with your daily routine, work, school or other activities.

Emotional and behavioral symptoms

Signs and symptoms of social anxiety disorder can include persistent:

Fear of situations in which you may be judges worrying about embarrassing or humiliating yourself concern that you'll offend someone intense fear of interacting or talking with strangers fear that others will notice that you look anxious fear of physical symptoms that may cause you embarrassment, such as blushing, sweating, trembling or having a shaky voice avoiding doing things or speaking to people out of fear of embarrassmentavoiding situations where you might be the center of attentionhaving anxiety in anticipation of a feared activity or even spending time after a social situation analyzing your performance and identifying flaws in your interaction expecting the worst possible consequences from a negative experience during a social situation

For children, anxiety about interacting with adults or peers may be shown by crying, having temper tantrums, clinging to parents or refusing to speak in social situations.

Performance type of social anxiety disorder is when you experience intense fear and anxiety only during speaking or performing in public, but not in other types of social situations.

Physical symptoms

Physical signs and symptoms can sometimes accompany social anxiety disorder and may include:

Fast heartbeat set stomach or cause trouble catching your breath dizziness or conversations dating attending or feeling" out of body" diarrhea muscle tension

Avoiding normal social situations

Common, everyday experiences that may be hard to endure when you have social anxiety disorder include, for example:

Using a public restroom interacting with strangerseating in front of othersmaking eye contactinitiating conversationsdatingattending parties or social gatheringsmissing work or schoolentering a room in which people are already started returning items to a store

Social anxiety disorder symptoms can change over time. They may flare up if you're facing a lot of stress or demands. Although avoiding anxiety-producing situations may make you feel better in the short term, your anxiety is likely to persist over the long term if you don't get treatment.

I think the answer you definitely will get is that that is impossible. I have had success in raising one child's IQ in an institutional setting. If people are committed, it is possible especially with individual care.

Dear , You could be stressed. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it's an omnipresent part of life. A stressful event can trigger the ?fight-or-flight? response, causing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to surge through the body. A little bit of stress, known as ?acute stress,? can be exciting?it keeps us active and alert. But long-term, or ?chronic stress,? can have detrimental effects on health. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can alter your reaction to them. I need to know, what are the causes with which you are stressed? Once you know the reason, you will be able to adjust with it with some tips and tricks. Please let me know the details. Take care.

Are you suggesting that your parents are an impediment to this career you have chosen? if so there must be reasons for their disapproval: the dangers of this career, or the lack of job and money-making opportunities etc. These could be valid concerns and you will need to prove them otherwise. Obviously you need some support and the best support I can think of is to get it from your mountaineering club or association and have one of the coaches or guides to come meet with your parents and have a talk. Now about this getting hyper, you know that that is not a solution and behaving rationally is the only way through this. No one will take you seriously, if you let your emotions get the better of you. You could also do career guidance counseling and attempt some tests in aptitude determination and take that also as evidence, if it points in this direction. The counselor will be willing to meet with your parents to help bring them around too. In all this you must approach it with a sensible mind and hold your emotions in check. Nothing should be obtained by blackmail: neither by your parents nor by you.
