I guess, you are not getting along well with your husband and/or in-laws. In a marital relationship, two different individuals from completely different backgrounds come together and try to create a new bond together. It takes time to understand each other. Try to understand your husband's needs and his view points (his perspective). Also be aware, what will make you happy and try to pin point exactly what is bothering you. Once you do this, then try to communicate this with your husband when you both are not agitated. Give each other enough space. Remember, that marriage is neither" total dependence" nor" total independence" it is" interdependence" if you both are working or staying with your in-laws then this can put additional stress on your relationship" effective communication is lifeblood of any relationship" - try to communicate with all your important relations. Assertively. Talking to a marriage counsellor will also help you. Take care.

Failure is the stepping stone for success, you might be destined for something much bigger. Do not lose heart, keep trying various things, especially ones you love doing. You will succeed. So move on, if the depression is very severe, consult psychiatrist and take anti-depressants for few weeks, you will feel much better.

Anxiety begets anxiety but this shouldn't hinder your career. Many talented students lie in the crowd just because they can't express their views publicly. They can't communicate properly with authorities due to most anxiety situations does occur when you think this is very important to me. One thing is that if you take adequate treatment regimen you could come out of that crowd that I can guarantee u. Message me your exact symptoms, anxiety situation treatment can be planned accordingly.

You need to understand he has this problem in the past and you like him too, and are now unable to make a decision. It is advisable that you need to attend a counsellor for a relationship counselling near to you and develop confidence in your partner and get rid of the doubt. Try on your side.

Hello, schizophrenia is a disorder characterised by delusions, hallucinations, fear, anger, and negative symptoms like reduced motivation, speech and activity. It does have exacerbations and remissions, but frequent episodes every 15 days is seen more commonly in mood disorder. There are drugs available for refractory schizophrenia. Also optimising dose of current anti psychotics with addition of a mood stabilizer is helpful. Ect is used to treat schizophrenia, particularly for positive symptoms like delusions, hallucinations or suicidal ideas. Take care.

Agoraphobia and its management

Agoraphobia and its management

Agoraphobia is a type of anxiety disorder in which you fear and often avoid places or situations that might cause you to panic and make you feel trapped, helpless or embarrassed.

With agoraphobia, you fear an actual or anticipated situation, such as using public transportation, being in open or enclosed spaces, standing in line or being in a crowd. The anxiety is caused by fear that there's no easy way to escape or seek help if intense anxiety develops. Most people who have agoraphobia develop it after having one or more panic attacks, causing them to fear another attack and avoid the place where it occurred.

People with agoraphobia often have a hard time feeling safe in any public place, especially where crowds gather. You may feel that you need a companion, such as a relative or a friend, to go with you to public places. The fears can be so overwhelming that you may feel unable to leave your home.

Agoraphobia treatment can be challenging because it usually means confronting your fears. But with talk therapy (psychotherapy) and medications, you can escape the trap of agoraphobia and live a more enjoyable life.

Symptoms

Typical agoraphobia symptoms include:

Fear of being alone in any situation
Fear of being in crowded places
Fear of losing control in a public place
Fear of being in places where it may be hard to leave, such as an elevator or train
Inability to leave your home (housebound) or only able to leave it if someone else goes with you
Sense of helplessness
Overdependence on others
In addition, you may have signs and symptoms of a panic attack, such as:

Rapid heart rate
Excessive sweating
Trouble breathing
Feeling shaky, numb or tingling
Chest pain or pressure
Lightheadedness or dizziness
Sudden flushing or chills
Upset stomach or diarrhea
Feeling a loss of control
Fear of dying
Panic disorder and agoraphobia

Some people have a panic disorder in addition to agoraphobia. Panic disorder is a type of anxiety disorder in which you experience sudden attacks of extreme fear that reach a peak within a few minutes and trigger intense physical symptoms (panic attacks). You might think that you're totally losing control, having a heart attack or even dying.

Fear of another panic attack can lead to avoiding similar circumstances or the place where it occurred in an attempt to prevent future panic attacks.

Causes

Having panic disorder or other phobias, or experiencing stressful life events, may play a major role in the development of agoraphobia.

Risk factors

Agoraphobia usually starts before age 35, but older adults also can develop it. Women are diagnosed with agoraphobia more often than men are.

In addition to having panic disorder or other phobias, agoraphobia risk factors include:

Having a tendency to be nervous or anxious
Experiencing stressful life events, such as abuse, the death of a parent or being attacked
Having a blood relative with agoraphobia
Complications

Agoraphobia can greatly limit your life's activities. If your agoraphobia is severe, you may not even be able to leave your home. Without treatment, some people become housebound for years. You may not be able to visit with family and friends, go to school or work, run errands, or take part in other normal daily activities. You may become dependent on others for help.

Agoraphobia can also lead to or be associated with:

Depression
Other mental health disorders, including other phobias and other anxiety disorders
Alcohol or drug misuse to try to cope with the fear, guilt, hopelessness, isolation and loneliness

Lifestyle and home remedies

There's no sure way to prevent agoraphobia. However, anxiety tends to increase the more you avoid situations that you fear. If you start to have mild fears about going places that are safe, try to practice going to those places before your fear becomes overwhelming. If this is too hard to do on your own, ask a family member or friend to go with you, or seek professional help.

If you experience anxiety going places or have panic attacks, get treatment as soon as possible. Get help early to keep symptoms from getting worse. Anxiety, like many other mental health conditions, can be harder to treat if you wait.

Some of the home remedies for agoraphobia include the use of herbs, such as chamomile, kava, skullcap, valerian, lavender, st. John's wort, and passionflower, as well as behavioral treatments like hypnotherapy, relaxation techniques, and the avoidance of substances like caffeine and illicit drugs.

Home remedies for agoraphobia
Chamomile: chamomile tea is often used to reduce stress and anxiety of all levels. It is rich in certain flavonoids and is also known as a sedative and nervine agent, meaning that it soothes the hormonal fluctuations and nervous functions that characterize agoraphobia. Chamomile can help you relax and ease muscle tension, lowering your chance of having an attack when a person suffering from agoraphobia gets into a 'trigger' situation.

Kava: this little known shrub is native to polynesia and the roots and rhizomes are commonly used as sedative agents for people with anxiety issues. The effects of kava are so strong that doctors compare the effects to benzodiazepines, which are very powerful pharmaceuticals. Do not use kava as a treatment if you are on any other allopathic treatment, but as a natural treatment, it is one of the best.

Passion flower: this vine found in north america is very useful in treating agoraphobia because the chemical components in the plant bind to serotonin receptors, controlling the stress response of the body and lowering anxiety. Like kava, however, passion flower has a powerful effect, just like an ssri, so do not combine this natural treatment with any other pharmaceutical treatments.

Skullcap: this herb strengthens the nervous system by regulating nervous responses and also reducing inflammatory effects throughout the body. Skullcap makes for a more balanced and manageable stress response system.

Valerian root: this is an extremely popular treatment for a wide variety of medical conditions, including insomnia, anxiety, depression, and fatigue. In terms of agoraphobia, valerian root can bind with the benzodiazepine receptors in the body, which makes it like natural valium, without the other side effects. This is an easy-to-use solution for agoraphobia that can help bring you back into the wide world without fear and panic.

Lavender: this popular herb and essential oil is very useful for reducing the effects of agoraphobia. Lavender's organic compounds actually inhibit the production and release of cortisol in the body, making it very good at slowing the stress response and eliminating panic attacks. Those suffering from agoraphobia can drink lavender tea or try aromatherapy with lavender essential oil to see if it has positive effects on their behavior and emotions.

St. John's wort: when it comes to calming the body and nervous system, st. John's wort can be a wonderful and widely available option. This herb decreases the levels of norepinephrine in the body, which means that the stress response system is dramatically managed and kept under control, thereby decreasing feelings of panic and anxiety, allowing agoraphobics to live relatively normal lives.

Hypnotherapy: in terms of behavioral treatments for agoraphobia, hypnosis has shown some benefit. While the therapeutic efficacy of hypnosis is still under great debate, research has shown that in terms of behavior modification and anxiety disorders, hypnotherapy can help the body respond more appropriately to normal situations, without engaging the stress response system.

Avoid caffeine and drugs: if you suffer from agoraphobia, the most important thing is to not get worked up or overly excited, nervous, anxious, or energetic. A calm and balanced approach to life is the best way to prevent a panic attack or an anxiety episode to crop up. Therefore, high-caffeine content beverages like coffee and energy drinks should be avoided, as well as substances that alter your mind in various ways, such as alcohol and illicit drugs. Even smoking cigarettes, which many people turn to as a stress reliever, elevates your heart rate and can imbalance your system, undoing all of the good work that the other natural remedies have done for the condition

Diet and workouts go a long way in helping you gain strength to gain weight, you must eat more calories than you burn. When you gain weight, some will be fat and some will be muscle. To gain muscle, you must eat protein. To boost the ratio of muscle to fat gain, you must exercise. To gain muscle and strength, you must engage in resistance exercise. To improve bodyfat percentage and gain weight, you must cycle through phases of gaining muscle and losing fat. I being a both a registered dietitian (rd) and doctor have been successfully helping patients with their problems through a holistic approach using customized therapeutic diet and medications. I will also suggest home remedies. Do reply back for private consultation for rx.

There seems to be a rift between your mother and your wife. Which according has made your mother feel depressed. Firstly when you say she goes into depression thinking about the previous fights means some overthinking is happening the real cause of the problem may be hidden elsewhere. Explain it to her that overthinking is also a problem nothing positive comes from it and ask her to focus to real issues as in like why the fight happened what she can do to avoid such fights and when both the party discusses it with u, you can act as a mediator. Hope this helps.

There is very little urine pass (below 400 millilitre per day) since past two days. I had 4 alcoholic drinks two days ago. I am suffering from dehydration? While I had 6 glasses of water in the morning, does this low urine output mean that my body is still in dehydration mode despite consuming 6 glass of water. Do I shift to intake of electrolytes?

You are treating sleep symptomatically. You have not treated the cause of the sleep disturbance. Medicines as well as psychotherapy, depending upon your preference can be used to treat the cause. Medicines, if you wish, can be given as it is cheaper and less time consuming than psychotherapy. the medicines I am referring to are not addictive contrary to the sleep medicines you are reporting. As is obvious, a detailed evaluation will be needed before these measures are undertaken. Take care!

Each and every relationship has a little bit of give and take. When each partner say's" I will give a little bit more than the other" and work towards satisfying the need of the other a beautiful relationship is born. We turn towards trust to our creator because he only gives us. Such has to be our giving in out most intimate relationship.
