Im 20 and im suffering from hand shaking from few days im worried. I drink alcohol daily. Is it related to it.

Im 20 and im suffering from hand shaking from few days im worried. I drink alcohol daily. Is it related to it.
Yes, it is related if your consumption is heavy. You must quit immediately. If you smoke too, the handshaking would become even more pronounced. It does not matter when you feel like drinking, as long as you need your drink. This could lead to increased tolerance levels so that over time you will need to drink more to get the same or greater effect. You need to identify why you need to drink, and go back into your childhood to find out other influences on your personality that makes you prone to addiction. Meet with an addiction counselor and work with them to sort out this drive. Your already display the classic tendency to first obsess about it and then compulsively feel driven to meet that need. The simplest thing to do is to do some other interesting activity during the evening times. Meet your oral need with some other non-intoxicating drink like soups, juices, and sodas with lime, etc. If you think that you will find it very difficult, then admit yourself to a hospital and go for de-addiction: which normally lasts for about two weeks. Then follow that up with addiction counseling from a professional for at least three years to completely get rid of the habit. If this is also not enough, then admit yourself into a de-addiction center and stay there for at least 6 months and after that attend counseling with a professional. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving. Ultimately, it is your will power and the support that you receive from the medical fraternity and your close and dear ones. You must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course look at all the genetic factors to plan a strategy not to get into what is called ‘cross addictions’ i.e. Another form of addiction that may appear alright but is in fact as bad as the primary addiction. The center or hospital and the counselor will advise and guide you on several measures and precautions you will need to take to stay with your resolve. Even after the rehabilitation you must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. Your family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. You cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to your drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with the family and whoever else’s support you can get and act on it fast. As a combination these two therapies (counseling and rehabilitation) will aid in dealing with the addiction. It will however take a long time to completely come off of the enslavement.

I am 37 years old as I am suffering depression for negative thought which frequently has been coming since a long time.
Depression can be treated with medicines, psychotherapy or both, depending upon your preference and severity of symptoms. A lot depends on whether you have had previous episodes and additional history of other medical problems, bipolar disorder in yourself or family and other medical problems. Since you are reporting symptoms for a long time, it is imperative that you get a proper consultation and treatment. I can straightaway suggest a few antidepressants here like escitalopram, sertraline, fluoxetine, venlafaxine, mirtazapine and many more, but without this background information, it can create unnecessary problems. I hope you realize the gravity of the situation. It is best if you could meet a good psychiatrist in your locality in person. Take care!

Best ways to develop strong emotional health

Best ways to develop strong emotional health
Taking care of your body is a powerful first step towards mental and emotional health. The mind and the body are linked. For example, exercise not only strengthens our heart and lungs, but also releases endorphins, powerful chemicals that energize us and uplift our moods.

Follow these simple ways for good EQ-

1) Get enough rest: Most people need seven to eight hours of sleep each night in order to function optimally.
2) Adopt good nutrition: The more you learn about what you eat and how it affects your energy and mood, the better you can feel.
3) Exercise regularly: Exercise is a powerful antidote to stress, anxiety, and depression. Aim for atleast30 minutes of exercise per day.
4) Get a dose of sunlight: Sunlight lifts your mood, so try to get at least 10 to 15 minutes of sun per day.
5) Limit alcohol and avoid cigarettes and other drugs. These are stimulants have long-term negative consequences for mood and emotional health.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand the situation you are going through the only person help you is you yourself. Because of one person you can't burden your mind up to the level which take away your peace. Darkness is created by you and you can convert it in to light. Just catch up with your old friends go and do the activities you do earlier. Life means moving on. Don't make your self servant of your thoughts control them. Do one activity stand in front of mirror and say all your thoughts in front of that. Then say I am the best and I love my self a lot. This will really help you in overcoming with your problem. Try this for a week then message me. Life is a gift so never think of sucide again.

Dear Raj Kumar, Manju had probably fibroid of uterus. It was removed 35 years back. It is over.These 3 issues have nothing to do with removal of fibroid uterus. In addition to antidepressants, if donamem is taken, it will prevent further deterioration of her memory and behaviour. She may be reluctant to take it because of her memory loss itself or due to depression. If you give it, she will take it. It will reduce your burden of taking care of Manju in the long run. Osteoporosis may be related to ovaries removal. But doctors who operated on her, would have taken care to prevent it with appropriate hormonal replacement or calcium supplements or D3. If you have regularly followed that treatment and in spite of it got osteoporosis, it is due to old, menopausal womanhood. You have accept Manju as such.

If you have depression then there are some major ramifications to take into account. I believe there may be some genetic predisposition or there has been some childhood issue that needs urgent attention. You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. 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 scotching 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 everyday and learn to be contended 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. As regards the concentration you are sure to have hormonal imbalances which may impact your memory because of the chemical but also the distractions that come with it; together with depression I can imagine your problems. Where your career is concerned it is better to talk to he management if there is something that can be done to ease the pressure.

Hi lybrate-user, Donating blood is good it is service to human beings. Good keep it up. Haemoglobin should be between 14 to 18, but 19 is also okay. I do not know what exactly the reason they didn't. It would be better if you stop smoking permanently. I wanted to know how many cigars per day you smoke. Try reducing cigars to one and try to cut down. It would be better if you stop at least for 15 days. All the best. Take care. With regards,

You seem to be suffering from Borderline Personality or Emotionally unstable personality. The cause is unknown but research suggests there is an interaction between adverse life events and genetic factors. Neurobiological research suggests that abnormalities in the frontolimbic networks are associated with many of the symptoms There is a pattern of sometimes rapid fluctuation from periods of confidence to despair, with fear of abandonment and rejection. There is a particularly strong tendency towards suicidal thinking and self-harm. They have love-hate relationship with close ones. Transient psychotic symptoms, including brief delusions and hallucinations, may also be present. It is also associated with substantial impairment of social, psychological and occupational functioning and quality of life. People with emotionally unstable personality disorder are particularly at risk of suicide. Its course is variable and, although many people recover over time. Kindly consult a psychiatrist for remedy.

4 Most Common Problems Caused By Alcohol

MBBS
Alternative Medicine Specialist, Jammu
4 Most Common Problems Caused By Alcohol

Excess of anything is never healthy and the same applies in the case of alcohol. Alcohol experts have come to a conclusion that drinking too much alcohol reduces affects negatively in both the genders.

Alcohol Myth Busted

Since time immemorial, people have considered alcohol to be an aphrodisiac. However, this myth has been busted time and again by the side effects of excessive alcohol. On the contrary, alcohol is known to induce depression after consumption.

Alcohol, if consumed in unnatural quantity over a period of time can turn conditions like 'brewer's droop', which otherwise might be temporary into permanent impotence. Alcohol addiction is a cardinal sin for couples planning on having a baby. Women, whose bodies are much more sensitive and complex than a man's body, react greatly to even a small quantity of alcohol. Even government's guidelines on low-risk alcohol consumption unit do not guarantee no harm, and people are known to have taken much longer time to get pregnant and irregularity in their menstrual cycles even after abiding by the government's guidelines.

What Is Moderation?

No one is asking you to completely cut down on alcohol. But moderation should then be a religion for all the drinkers. Moderate drinking includes no more than 2 drinks per day (US. Centre for Disease Control and Prevention). The explanation is that your liver can act on alcohol at one standard size drink an hour, so heavy drinking means that too much alcohol for the liver to handle and hence unhealthy toxins are released in the body having an adverse effect on the sex life.

Some of the more common problems caused by alcohol in a couple's sex life are:

  • Long-term erectile dysfunction: The most common of all the problems, erectile dysfunction can most commonly be attributed to heavy drinking. 60% of men who are alcohol addicts are known to be suffering from loss of sexual appetite.
  • Ruined Families and relationships: Alcohol can be considered one of the biggest inducers of divorce among couples. It makes people less caring and more and more involved in their drinking antics. 90% of domestic violence incidents include alcohol.
  • Side effects of smoking: Drinking is usually accompanied by cigarettes and a cocktail of these two substances can be a deadly weapon against your sanity. For men below 40, erectile dysfunction primarily happens because of excessive smoking.
  • STDs: Alcohol consumption helps people shed their inhibition and cases of unprotected sex increases. It increases your chances of actually getting an STD. 50% of all impromptu sexual encounters happen in the presence of alcohol and 60% STD spread when alcohol is also in the picture. Young adults who consume alcohol at an alarming rate are 7 times more likely to indulge in unprotected sexual intercourse.

Hence, we see that alcohol addiction does not compliment healthy sex life and therefore people must toe in line at the right time to ensure the wellbeing of their lifestyle and sexual activities. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can ask a free question.

I want to get out of it. I really want to get rid of this. I want to feel happy. I love the person m getting married to but i burst out to him all the time. Sometimes i feel like i do not want to go home. I really want to know what is happening in my mind. I get irritated easily with the small issues. M just not happy with the behavior of my family. I feel like they don't love me. I feel like ignored at my own house. Please help me or suggest me what to do to feel positive. I want to get rid of this anger.

First of all, don?t look at anger as a bad feeling. It is a good feeling and a very important emotion. The problem you are having is that it seems to rise in you fast and without any reason; and of course the inappropriate expression of it. But in your query, you have stated the possible reason: your family doesn?t show much affection towards you and because of that you may be suffering rejection from them. How true this is I do not know but several times I have found that there is a problem in perception. Since you are getting angry without reason it seems to suggest, that you may have experienced the rejection a long time ago, if it is true. Let us assume that it is true, then you can have a talk with them and find out how valid this feeling is and why they did that to you. Give them actual instances when they behaved like that. This is one of the most important suggestions I have to give you: you must express your anger just like I suggested ? talk to them about your anger. There may be a lot of sadness underlying the anger, and that will have to be dealt with as a second round after the expression of anger. If they are the ones who have arranged for this marriage, then they have done you a good turn by finding someone whom you can love! But this anger of yours won?t help. Remember, today many marriages have been breaking up due to the low tolerance level of the man and the woman, among other things. Anger can destroy relations. My advice to you is to talk with a counselor and get directions and advice about emotions and how to express them. Anger expressed well, will bring terrific results. Of course you cannot get angry without reason. The counselor will help you identify the reason, which I think is about rejection, anyway. Vigorous exercise will expend the energy related to anger but it will not actually deal with it.

Feeling stressed during exams is normal but too much anxiety reduces efficiency. Take adequate sleep. Make a workable time table to cover the topics to be prepared. Take time to relax by way of exercise or sports or a creative hobby like singing/ dancing etc regularly. Detressing yourself prevents stress from building up. Talk to famiky or friends. If anxiety is too much and you are unable concentrate or sleep, seek professional help.
