Bipolar disorder is an episodic illness. There may be episodes of depression or episodes of mania, when they are very active, talk a lot, loud and fast. They may be wanting to buy dresses and jewelry and may want to spend lot of money. They may be very religious, and become irritable, argumentative, and that they are always right. Both the phases of illness depression and mania are distressing to the family. With the mood stabilizing drugs, their moods will be stabilized. They need to take drugs continuously under the supervision of a psychiatrist. While taking drugs, these episodes of mania and depression can be prevented. Sometimes even while on drugs may develop mood disturbances. These mood disturbances are milder and can be controlled faster. You need not worry too much about her are or about the children. As time passes, these episodes of mood disturbance also becomes less and less.

First step of treatment is done by you minus any doctor and medicines and this step is self realization about being negative, being suffering from anxiety neurosis and this is yet not the reason for a heart attack but this is one of the 13 factors causing heart attack, why not change thought process at 25? read good books about zero to hero autobiographies and keep counting the hurdles on the way to achievement. Develop some hobbies, be with nature, go for long walks, maintain a diary and give marks to yourself at end of the day, markings should be honest to include your positives and negatives. Gradually you will come to terms when your own positives will outnumber your negatives, be human and accept your mistakes but try to mend them. You must do some fruitful result oriented work for society like teaching kids as part time hobby, people will criticize you anyway, whether you get admission in iit through your merit or be a part time teacher for slum kids, ignore them, sometimes it reflects back good health by being a loner, it does not mean that there is no good company around.

In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause. Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days. Take sarpgandha vati twice a day. Yogendra ras. Akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension. Avoid salty diet. Oily food. Lower your stress. Do pranayama early morning.

Dear lybrate-user, motivational enhancement therapy for 12 weeks is helpful. It is a weekly therapy - can be done by anyone who has specialised in addiction treatment. Many clinical psychologist, social workers, alternate medical specialists, general practitioners, counsellors are trained by nimhans for 1 month in house training or in weekly virtual classrooms. They are given certificates. You can approach anyone with such certification. Checking on breathanalyser gives only the 1-2 hours of alcohol use. Mainly helpful for police persons to find out drunken driving. There are other blood and liver tests (ggt, sgot and sgpt ratio) which give an indication of longer use. They are for legal, diagnostic and research purposes. As a daughter, why do you do that for your dad. You are not going to police him. You are going to help him come out of his addiction. Please play that role. Start with improving his liver function so that he can eat well and digest his food.

Hi, my age is 26, I am running a business, I am a chain smoker minimum 15 to 20 cigarette a day from past 4 years due to business tension. Now I want to quit the smoking, how can I quit my smoking habit and how can I clean my lungs which cause damage due to smoking from past 4 years? Is there any treatment? I heard there is treatment of cleaning lungs, so please suggest me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You must simultaneously treat yourself for the tension.You must quit your smoking completely and you must do it now, seriously. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. But don’t be discouraged because it is not too late even now to reverse all the ill-effects of smoking. I don’t know what other organs could be damaged but do go for a thorough medical check up to assess the effects of your abuse. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself. The greatest effect is in the lungs because this substance is processed through the respiratory system directly through the lung surface. You should start vigorous exercises, gradually increasing it over a period of time. Do deep breathing exercises every time you feel like smoking (try Yoga), and replace the oral urge with some healthy food substitute to satiate the need. You may also take hard candy or chewing gum. If the urge is too strong, then use nicotine gums and nicotine patches, for a little while until the smoking drive reduces, substantially. You may also join Smokers Anonymous in your city where the support is really extraordinary for like-minded people who are also in the same situation. Keep yourself occupied or engaged with interesting activities during the times when it is most tempting. Keep the company of non-smokers for some time i.e. at least for the first 21 days. Above all announce it to everyone that you have quit smoking. Here’s a piece of very good advice: even if you accidentally/willfully take a cigarette, it is not the end of the world – you can start the cessation all over again. You must persevere with the best support until you defeat this addiction. Counseling is very useful in the initial stages and when temptations are at their highest. But don’t fool yourself any smoking is harmful, and you need to seriously get on with quitting it completely and immediately.

5 Ways to Overcome Feelings of Neediness

FIPS, PGDMLS, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
5 Ways to Overcome Feelings of Neediness

Man is different from the other species in that we are social beings. One of the main differentiators is our constant need to 'connect' with our fellow beings. Be it family or friends or society at large, we constantly need to be connected to our near and dear ones and want attention, affection, and assurance.

We need to respect this basic desire and appreciate that there is nothing wrong in feeling needed. Problems arise when this feeling to be needed gets excessive. There is a significant constant demand from the needy person, especially from those who are close to them.

Some cases where neediness is demonstrated are in new relationships. In the beginning, there is a great urge to please and therefore a greater focus on interacting with them. There is a fear of losing attention, there is insatiable excessive demand for attention - be it pleas, accusations, or demands - so as to not feel abandoned and deserted. Neediness is also quite evident in people with depression. Again, an attempt to not be abandoned by their near and dear ones.

By making a conscious effort, the neediness can be reduced, thereby making the relationships smoother and less painful to both the parties involved. As the saying goes - 'acknowledging the problem is half the problem solved'. Needy people should realize or accept if told that there is an issue and make a conscious effort to work on reducing neediness.

1. Divert attention - As simple as it might sound, it is equally effective. Indulge in whatever interests you - exercise, meditation, dance, sing, etc. The idea is to divert attention so that the urge to feel needy and act on that instinct is reduced. This reduces the fear of being lonely and works magic. The busier you get, the less bored you are. As they say, be alone but not lonely.

2. Clarity in communication - One of the intricacies of neediness is making unclear demands. Sadly, quite often, the person does not know what he wants, and so are the demands or requests which are equally unclear. Once you are aware that your neediness is making you do this, make an effort to clearly communicate what you actually want. This reduces the stress on both the parties involved and leads to a happier engagement.

3. Clarity in relationships - Take a step back and see if your neediness is affecting any major relationships. If yes, revisit and clarify. Make an attempt and reestablish the relationships. If it is your truly near and dear ones, they will be very forthcoming and understanding.

4. Move on - In cases where your neediness has affected another person, be wise to accept their wishes and not be more 'needy' or clingy. This acceptance will make way for a lot of healthier relationships as you learn to deal with accepting your issues.

5. Socialize - Use your hobbies to make more friends and socialize more. Having more people to interact with reduces your need to be accepted by the same people. You have more people to rely on and might make more friends for keeps.

These are some simple ways to reduce neediness on others, but as mentioned, the first step is to accept and then work on ways to reduce it.

First try counselling which is a non medical way of overcoming anxiety. You will learn to respond differently to stressful social situations and discover helpful ways to remain in control of yourself. Medications have their side effects and only takes care of the chemical imbalance. It will not teach you coping mechanisms.

Dear Lybrate user. You must be able to understand Concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please post a private question to me and I will help you with "effective learning" techniques. Take care.

Please take care of your self. Talk to your closed ones or friends who can understand you. You can also take the help of a counselor (psychologist) to guide you. You have to take positive steps to move on in life. There is no benefit in remaining submerged in negativity. Get involved in work and set a goal for your self for your future. Stay fit because that will help you to stay focused. (you can join some yoga class to get involved into positive health. Investing time for self growth will help you a lot.)

Hi lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help. You appear to be quite depressed. Advise consult a psychologist for clinical counseling, in person. Should you be getting any side effects owing to your current medication, you can always discuss with your doc for an appropriate substitute that will suit you better. At the same time, do keep your diet and lifestyle streamlined, exercise (aerobic), de-stress/ relax adequately on a daily basis. Stay mentally strong, believe in yourself, visualize pleasant stuff, think positive and remain focused in your present. If possible, a trip to some hill station or some scenic natural place with plenty of greenery can help you relax, rejuvenate, feel blessed, think clearly and have a fresh perspective in life. Hope this helps. You can always connect for an integrative naturopathic support should you require anytime. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely,

You must both seek professional help immediately. This is no marriage and it looks like there are a lot of points of contention. If there is any reluctance to seek help, then you may have to proceed with divorce. First, make sure that all the possible avenues to solve the problem have been adequately exhausted. Perhaps, both the families can be brought together for the counseling. Communication is very important in marriage and wherever there are two and more people. If this is nonexistent, there is guaranteed to be discord and breakup.

Rivotril will only manage your physical complaints of anxiety and at your age it might have cognitive slowing causing memory issues. If you are depressed then the treatment would be to deal with the thought process and medications pertaining to it will be beneficial. For that it is advisable to consult a psychiatrist.

Depressive illness is a medical/psychiatric illness that can be treated effectively by antidepressants and cognitive behavior therapy. So one has to see a psychiatrist. Kindly ask your psychiatrist to change the medications and do cbt or change the psychiatrist at the earliest. Psychiatrist after assessment and evaluation will decide on the best antidepressant medication that is suitable to you. These antidepressant medications are not sedatives or addictive in a nature. The course may last for 4-6 months depending upon the severity of the illness.
