World Autism Awareness Day 2015

World Autism Awareness Day aims to increase people's awareness about people, especially children, with autism. The day often features educational events for teachers, health care workers and parents, as well as exhibitions showcasing work created by children with autism.

Autism is a developmental disability that remains with a person for his or her whole life. This condition affects the brain's functions. The first signs usually appear before a child is three years old. People with autism often:

Find social interaction difficult.
Have problems with verbal and non-verbal communication.
Demonstrate restrictive and repetitive behavior.
Have a limited set of interests and activities.

Autism affects girls and boys of all races and in all geographic regions and has a large impact on children, their families, communities and societies
Caring for and educating children and young people with this condition places challenges on health care, education and training programs.

Dear, tension during and before examination is called performance anxiety. To overcome exam related performance anxiety, you should know yourself, your subject, exams and your study patterns. Once you study systematically and to the point, there is no need to be panic before or during the exams. Effective learning techniques should help you. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with" effective learning" techniques. She should be taken to a psychologist for counseling. You may consult me online. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user, you sure are not Hiv positive, yes you have developed obsessive thoughts and you can get rid of this through cognitive behavioral therapy for which you will have to consult a psychologist. On screening if there is a need you will be directed for medication too. To begin with practice mindfulness breathing - The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Do it wheneve you get these negative thoughts. You can consult with me for psychotherapy CBT. All the best. RELAX.

I am suffering from anxiety .how to control and face red after drinking alcohol in winter months. please advice
Dear lybrate-user, alcohol is not the only solution for anxiety and to face winter. There are more options for anxiety - may be a relaxation exercise or yoga or cognitive behaviour therapy or anxiolytic drug for a short time. Think of each alternative with its advantages and disadvantages. Better you write them down. The same exercise for warming up in winter. Many options and each one's advantages and disadvantages. After this exercise, if you decide to stop using alcohol, if you can not practice it, please consult online.

Different people react in different ways. Take a look at this information and see what kind of dangers you are exposing yourself to. There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it. The obsession and compulsive use is when you become addicted to the substance. Now we all spoke the same language: we can stop whenever we want, it is not addictive, it is fun after all, there are so many medical benefits etc. All meant to justify the consumption. There are so many other healthy ways to be creative or to stimulate the creativity in you; and there are so many ways to ‘open’ your mind. Why choose the easy way out when it is a chemical way out? Just for your information here’s what WebMD has to say: ‘No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat a baked good or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don’t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: •Dizziness •Shallow breathing •Red eyes and dilated pupils •Dry mouth •Increased appetite •Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.’ It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ‘cross hallucinations’ i. E. For example, you can see sounds and hear colors!

I have body pains from two weeks.

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
I have body pains from two weeks.
What is the severity of pain? is the pain continuous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from painkillers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

How in-Laws Sometimes Can Ruin the Relationships and Marriages?

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
How in-Laws Sometimes Can Ruin the Relationships and Marriages?

Parents are the most precious gifts god has given us because of them we are today, what we are. Then why sometimes, couples face challenges to maintain healthy relationships with each other's parents. Sometimes these relationship differences turn so sour that it destroys marriages and relationships. Let us see how in-laws can destroy relationships and even marriages so you can check on these matters at the beginning.

A. When the in-laws attempt to be too intrusive, especially, in joint families, when parents forget to allow their daughter-in-law and their son to spend a good time with each other. Generally, in today's hectic life where both the couples works or one of them works, few minutes prior sleeping is not enough to blossom a relationship.

B. When one partner allows his/her parent to decide their life's decision, remember your husband or your wife to have their own views especially if they too are involved in the decisions.

C. When in-laws assume that they should be always heard: The times are changing so are the situations and challenges to deal with them now vs 20 or 25 years back.

When husbands fail to understand that his wife needs his support to adjust or solve relationship issues in the family. Many times the husband avoids the situations, leaving his wife alone to fight the war.

Hi lybrate-user, if its depression you can start off medicine with a psychiatrist. Clearing ssc may be your goal but thats not the last thing to look forward in life, always keep a back up, I am sure there are umpteen no. Jobs that you can be selected for, so work hard but don't be disheartened you are worthy of everything, feel confident, failure success are part of life what matters I how we handle it, give your best shot if it does not work out just switch to something you like or career of your choice other than this. Take psychotherapy from a psychologist. Consult for same. All the best.

I married in 2012, was arrange. Before the wedding we were talking on the phone. Then I was think . She is a good girl and will be a good life partner. But after marriage it was not certain. As soon as I had thought it was the opposite. She not like to live with my family in it together . They all want something separate and individual and some of his childish antics have hatred in my heart for her. An act of her has always hated the feeling throughout. Which has resulted in the recent. Those that I was upset with the private job pressure. For this, I wanted to own a small business. Something for which lack of money was falling. For this I wanted to sell our gold jewelery . But she did not support me, and My dream was break to a small business. Am now unemployed because of its 6 months. That's one reason that I 'll hate my wife . And I do not like to be with her. Now I am so frustrated and depressed. I do not think there ever will be able to forget this. Some time ago, for not getting a job because I had decided to commit suicide. But I have avoided death . But I do not think I have much time venture to avoid death. So doctor tell me how to adjust in this situation. My big problem is m not want to live my life with wife because I so hate her.

Marriage is about love, understanding and adjustments. But expectations are the biggest hurdle in all these. Marriage is about what two people as a couple want to do, unfortunately in indian joint families it is what the family wants from the daughter in law, which seems to be the case in your marriage. From what you are describing it seems that you two have not developed a relationship of trust. In the absence of trust their cannot be any love. When a woman marries a man, it becomes his duty to uphold her respect in the family, by giving that respect to the woman in your life, you ensure that she will stand by you in all times. But in the absence of trust, and in a situation where the husband is not supportive, she will also decide not to support. The best for you would be to develop a relationship with your wife, try to know her likes and dislikes. It is not fair to ask her to adjust to other people's or your likes all the time. At times you will also have to let her do what she likes. Keeping a family together doesn't mean that everyone has to do, see or eat the same thing. Only those relationships and families can be happy where everyone has the freedom to what they like within some boundaries. If you keep hating her, then you can't be happy. And thinking of dying is a very childish thought- why do you want to run away from the situation, without trying. If you can't bear to live with her, then it would be better to separate rather than dying.

I don't know what your investment in all this is. If you are not a loser or have no stake in all these manipulations, just let it be. The truth will eventually prevail, even if they succeed in deceptively taking over the wealth and whatever. If you are directly going to be impacted, meet a lawyer to know what can be done to preempt any deception as a precautionary measure. You may talk to the parents only in these people?s absence, which may be near impossible. But if you took them away for a vacation or to your home for a break, it is then possible to find out how much they are really aware of being manipulated, and whether they have been intimidated, or are they suffering from loss of awareness as a psychological or medical reason. They could be living in fear for all you know, and their age may make them feel obligated to the point of avoiding fearful repercussions. In that case you must take legal recourse and safeguard them and their wealth.

In a situational depression like this you need to achieve more mind control. Yoga and meditation are good. Also read or listen to music if you like it. And divert your mind by talking to good friend or relatives. Is your sleep deprived? you need constant support. Ask privately with all your details. Have you tested thyroid any time? ask privately.

I lost my friend last month and since feel depressed and prefer keeping myself. Pls help me.
It is natural to feel low and miss the person you have lost. However if it is interfering with your sleep, studies or general well being, or if you feel suicidal, you need to consult a psychiatrist. It is common to feel low, cry, feel like you are alone, or lose your self confidence. Usually time is the best healer. However if things are too difficult to handle you should talk to a psychiatrist or counselor. Confide in someone close to you, who will support you in this difficult time. Don't cut off from friends or family, even if you feel like you want to be alone. You can contact me for further help, if required.
