Hi, I'm 32 year old married man. I got married about four year ago and it was an arranged marriage. Now I am hopeless due to hyper behavior of my wife. Whenever I deny something to my wife or try to make her understand something, a long argument take place and if I am not agree with her than she becomes hyper and at last she behaves like insane. Try to leave the home immediately or try to harm herself by taking the knife at her throat (even on throat of my 2.5 year old son). She had also tried to jump from the running car (with son) ones time because she was scolded her for some expensive purchase. But just after half an hour she becomes normal and accepts her insane behavior was wrong. She also accepts her fault in part and complaining a headache just after the incident. Initially I ignored this but throughout time I see repeated pattern. Her some relatives told me that she possess this type of behavior since childhood and her farther and grandmother also have the same pattern. Is this any type of genetically disease? Or psychological problem only. Is there any cure for it? Please suggest me.

Hello lybrate-user your wife's behavior could be genetic and / or socially learned. Social learning happens as a protective learned behavior. She has seen others behaving in particular way in stressful situation and that is was she her learned response to any stressful situation. The good news is that we human being have a capability to re-structure our response through our will and freedom of choice. I believe as she regrets her bahavior later and feel sorry. She will be willing to see someone who could help her learn and restructure her stress response mechanism. Any behavior modification technique along with some stress management tools will help her. Look for some one in your area as she might be more comfortable talking to someone in person. Both of you need to keep both patience and faith. Your love for each other is what help you sail through this tough time. If you can't find someone I will be available for telephonic consultation and intervention. In that case feel free to send me personal message. Wishing you both much success and fulfilled life togather.

I do not understand the connection between the accident and the depression. It is better for you to meet with a counselor and explore the reasons behind the depression. 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.

Dear Lybrate-user, it is good that you wants to stop smoking, we are destroying our health by smoking normal human takes oxygen into lungs 12 -15 times per minute (12 - 15 breaths) Lungs mixes oxygen in our 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 our blood and our body organs like Lungs, Heart, kidney etc… How to quit: By willingness and willpower" where there is a will there is a way" Reduce one by one day by day.

I got my drivers license like a month ago. However, I am terrified of driving. I hateeee driving because I am always thinking that something wrong will happened. I use to love to drive when I almost got into an accident and was totally frozen! Doctors said that I suffer from anxiety. They did not tell me anything further but I will like to start back to drive comfortably on my own. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance.

Its natural to be anxious before re starting something in which you almost failed once. However if that keeps you terrified of driving due to which you keep away from it, then you certainly have anxiety that is impairing your functioning. This may include behaviour therapies to relax while driving with some medications if required.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. From the given details, it seems that you have lack of self confidence related to general anxiety. General anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Cocaine Detoxification

Medical Detoxification is a process that systematically and safely withdraws people from addicting drugs, usually under the care of a physician. Drinking alcohol or using drugs can cause physical dependence over time and stopping them can result in withdrawal symptoms in people with this dependence. The detoxification process is designed to treat the immediate bodily effects of stopping drug use and to remove toxins left in the body as a result of the chemicals found in drugs and/or alcohol.

While at the present time, no proven pharmacologic therapy for cocaine addiction exists, several kinds of medications have been used in the detoxification of cocaine. Withdrawal from chronic cocaine use produces anxiety, depression and intense cravings for the drug. Several types of medications address these issues in different ways.

Antidepressant drugs such as desipramine or a combination of phentermine and fenfluramine have been used to reduce cocaine withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety and depression. Benzodiazepines, tranquilizers such as Diazepam, have been used to reverse anxiety induced by cocaine withdrawal. Amantadine, a drug used to treat Parkinson's Disease, may be an effective treatment for cocaine-dependent patients with severe cocaine withdrawal symptoms and may reduce cocaine craving. Bromocriptine, a drug that works on the brain's dopamine system, has been used to decrease the craving for cocaine during detoxification and to reduce mood disturbance.

Propanolol, a beta-blocker drug used to treat high blood pressure, may be useful for severe cocaine withdrawal symptoms, as it slows down the effects of adrenaline, thereby calming the body's "fight or flight" response to stressful situations. This type of drug has been used to treat general anxiety and anxiety associated with alcohol withdrawal. Propranolol's lessening of symptoms such as palpitations and sweating has helped reduce cocaine craving. Its use, however, is not risk free in patients who have taken cocaine and can be associated with decreased blood flow to the heart and other changes that predispose patients to arrhythmia and a severe increase in blood pressure that can lead to a stroke. Delayed toxic effects are possible. Any use of beta-blockers in this setting requires careful monitoring and caution

How Is Social Media Affecting Your Mental Health?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, CE (New York)
Psychiatrist
Ask Free Question
Being away or oblivious to social media is synonymous to not following the herd. Social media probably is no more the latest fad; it is the given code to take a deeper look into the present age. The rewarding fact about social networking sites is their ability to transport us to people and places millions of miles away from us. This epoch with its dictates of overproduction and maximum utilization of labor, snatches away the boon of communication.

Social media gifts us with easy communication and wider access:

Social media creates peer pressure: coming in continuous contact with occurrences in other people's life can lead to mental setback. You may feel low on comparing your achievements with that of others. Consciously or unconsciously you are struggling throughout to be at par with them who are seemingly jubilant. Virtual peer pressure is realized by many.
It can bring us at close quarters with penitence: persistent grief or regret can take a toll on your mental health. It can make you depressive. Depression is again not a healthy thing for personal growth and development. It usually results in lack of motivation.
You tend to panic more through continued use of social media: if you have not been in touch with social media for a couple of days you are instilled with the fear of losing out on incidents. You panic regarding what has been happening all over the world that in reality will in most cases bear no effect on you.
It accustoms you to the glamorous appeal of drugs- social media tends to showcase the ills of society as glamorous contributing factors of life. It celebrates the vices of drugs and other addictive agents as virtues. Young adults are therefore easily incited to give in to addiction.

Positive effects of social media on your mental health:
1. Social media will let you take a break from hovering tasks and responsibilities.
2. Helps you connect with long lost friends. Social networking sites will bring you close to new and old friends alike.
3. Real society is overly judgemental. It prohibits you from coming across as your true self. Virtual media allows you to come out of your cocoon and helps you feel comfortable about yourself.

It seems that for one or the other reason you are accumulating stress and in that stress your behavior is less than what you expect. This coukd be due to some change which happend recently in your life or might be due to our modern life style which causes this stress. It could also be due to change in your life. And youight not know what direction kw your life might take turn if you have finished your study and either looking for a work or life partner or some profession course. Or it could be for any other such reason. When we are stressed it is natural for us to feel lonely, feel sad and down and at times feel irritated, frustrated and get angry. As we take time out to do so many thing in our daily life we also need to learn how to take care of our inner self. How to nurture and grow our true self. Following tips will help you re build new response when you are stressed. Chronic stress is a byproduct of our busy life style these days, which at times leads to feeling of burnout and depression. Building your resilience will help you manage your stress and help in depression. Try following things to learn relaxation response which leads to better coping mechanism on a daily basis. To begin with doing guided progressive muscular relaxation before sleeping will help you relax. You could google and download an audio file. I would also suggest you to take a multiple small break to take 3 nice and deep breath while keeping your eyes closed. You could do this while sitting or standing or while even walking or climbing stairs (keep your eyes open in that case). When you take a nice and deep break there is actual physiological change in your body. This will help you to activate parasympathetic nervous system which promotes relaxation and helps you calm down and think more clearly. This will also actually improve your performance in your work. Along with this exercise is one of the best way to relive stress and stay fit. Engage in any kind of physical activity at least 4 times a week. This also helps in stress reduction. Along with this some relaxation exercises as well as engaging in joyful activities such as music, singing, dancing, reading, being in nature, gardening, talking with friends or anything which you enjoy will help reducing stress and rejuvenation of your mind and body. Have good routine for sleep and eating. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Along with this also increase consumption of raw vegetables in the form of salad in both the meals of your day. As a positive psychologist and a certified life and wellness coach I would be able to help build resilience and confidence to take on life and learn how to excel in what you do. I also offer 3 to 6 months program where we need on a weekly basis to work towards your goal achievement. In case of need you may contact me. Hope this helps. Wishing you very best.

Dear lybrate user. This problem is due to irritation and inadequate nutrition of the brain. So follow few basic things. 1) take solid diet two times in a day and liquid diet two times in a day. 2) drink only 100-150 ml of lukewarm water during meals . 3) don’t drink water one hour before meals and one hour after meal4) avoid oily, spicy, salty, junk, fast, fermented and stale foods. 5) avoid late night sleeping habits . 6) do anuloma viloma pranayam regularly early in the morning. A) eat 5 gm of ajwain seeds along with 5 gm of jaggery after meals. B) take 60 ml of trifala juice along with 20 ml of honey early in the morning and at night before sleep. Do all these things for 15 days. It gives you good result.

I was 75 kg before 2 years. After that I slightly kind of became a stress eater. That means from a certain point in my life till now, eating different kinds of tasty oily food only gives me happiness. If I become sad also I eat so much and happy also I eat too much. Usually breakfast I will skip, lunch I will eat very less and night I eat so much of food. As a result I am now 100 kg. I want to reduce. I'm 175 cm height. Please help me doctors!

Dealing with stress by eating is a common occurrence. 'Comfort food' tends to make you feel better because it is usually something delicious, fried or sweet, and loaded with calories. It is also seen that people with anxiety and depression tend to resort to comfort eating. The problem is that being overweight or obese puts you at a high risk for heart disease and diabetes. I suggest you talk to a psychiatrist to look for any depression or anxiety. If that is the underlying cause, medication and counseling will help you. Other than that you need to consult an experienced nutritionist who will help you plan a diet which suits your lifestyle. Don't go for any fad diets or plans which are in vogue; not all of them are suitable for everyone to implement. You will need to incorporate exercise along with dietary modification and lifestyle change. The best results are seen with a combination of diet and exercise. Before starting any form of exercise, consult a doctor and get a check up done. Do not opt for very strenuous exercise immediately as you might injure yourself or harm yourself. Keep in mind this is a long road, with lot of obstacles, but with motivation and hard work you will be able to achieve your goals. Wish you the best.

Its good for bones. Eat nuts daily. Its rich in fiber and omega 3 and gives you lots of energy. Avoid stress and anger. Start light walk or yoga. It will help you and makes you fresh.
