Dear lybrate user,ups and downs are part of life,different peoples have different nature some are very emotional,some are practical,some are selfish.emotional persons are caring ,cant hurt others,when they love someone they don't cheat them.you are emotional its good bu don't be such that--- your this positive quality becomes your negative point.you love someone its really awesome ,its natural feeling we cannot force or convince some one to love ,consider if he says ok in any pressure then for how many days??just tell your feelings if he will feel the same then naturally he will come and then that bond which will form give hapiness to both of you.and if he is saying no then by calling him again and again and by bargaining,don't you think that you are disrespecting your true love, whether he loves you or not but you love him and your love is true ,you should feel proud.remember one thing bicycle can't run with one wheel same principle applies here.any time if you need my help i will be glad to help you .take care.

Dear lybrate user, I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Losing your dad at this age and in a road accident must have been very traumatic for you. You and your mother are going through a very difficult phase in your life. Your dad's tragic and sudden death has affected you both, but in different ways. There is loss support and sudden increase in the responsibilities for you both. This might be causing a huge burden on you both and you might be feeling insecure and lost. At this difficult time when you are emotionally stressed out, it will be difficult for you to live life normally. You may need some more time to come out of this grief. It is advisable to share your sad feelings with each other and/or with your respective friends and relatives. You both need to talk about your pain with someone. It will relieve you of some pain and sadness. I hope your mother is on medication for bp. I would suggest that you both take an appointment with a counsellor, who will help you in this difficult situation so that eventually you both can move on with life. Take care.

I think I am loosing my self I feel so unhealthy stress tired body pain all the time.

I think I am loosing my self I feel so unhealthy stress
tired body pain all the time.
Kindly consult a psychiatrist and get your stress evaluated. Stress is the feeling of being under too much mental or emotional pressure. Pressure turns into stress when you feel unable to cope. People have different ways of reacting to stress, so a situation that feels stressful to one person may be motivating to someone else. Many of life’s demands can cause stress, particularly work, relationships and money problems. And, when you feel stressed, it can get in the way of sorting out these demands, or can even affect everything you do. Stress can affect how you feel, think, behave and how your body works. In fact, common signs of stress include sleeping problems, sweating, loss of appetite and difficulty concentrating. You may feel anxious, irritable or low in self esteem, and you may have racing thoughts, worry constantly or go over things in your head. You may notice that you lose your temper more easily, drink more or act unreasonably. You may also experience headaches, muscle tension or pain, or dizziness. Stress causes a surge of hormones in your body. These stress hormones are released to enable you to deal with pressures or threats – the so-called "fight or flight" response. Once the pressure or threat has passed, your stress hormone levels will usually return to normal. However, if you're constantly under stress, these hormones will remain in your body, leading to the symptoms of stress.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
It can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it.

Mr. lybrate-user ,these symptoms are quite common in the modern stressful life, the excessive thoughts and worries could be a result of various conditions like generalized anxiety disorder, dysthymia or personality traits too. These need detailed evaluation, kindly submit your details in the inbox so I can help you .or send it to nearby psychiatrist. Everyone has the right to remain happy. Get your self well evaluated. Best of luck.

I've problem of over thinking. Can any one please help me. I'm going through anxiety.
Your solution lies in the question only. The cause of anxiety is over thinking. However I need to know whether same thought keeps on coming to your mind repeatedly or different thoughts. As the diagnosis in both cases would be different and needs different kind of therapy. You will benefit from therapy

Dear anxiety disorder is not a disease. It is a disorder. Mental disorder not requires medicines. Psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation etc are enough to cure your problem. You must learn and educate yourself about your anxiety disorder. The more you try to" cure" your anxiety, anxiety increases and cure is not possible. You have to change your mindset.

5 Common Treatments For Mental Health Issues!

5 Common Treatments For Mental Health Issues!

As most of the economies over the world become industrialized, the quality of life increases, but with it comes a plethora of mental health problems. Especially in a country like India, the rapid industrialization and the expansion of opportunities has seen a rise in the number of people afflicted by mental health disorders. Some of the common mental health issues and their treatment methods are discussed here-

Common Mental Health Issues

  1. Depression – Depression is a very serious issue that affects a significant part of the population. It is not only a public health concern but also a fast spreading problem in the world. Although depression related to stress is on the rise, it could happen due to chemical imbalances within the brain as well.

  2. Anxiety Disorder – While stress and anxiety tend to be a part of your daily life, over time, it could build up and end up being a disorder. Symptoms of frequent panics or anxiety could build up to become anxiety and panic disorders wherein you would be constantly under stress due to external situations such as social anxiety or have panic disorders.

  3. Schizophrenia – This problem is caused within the brain due to neurochemical issues and causes paranoia, hallucinations, frightfulness and distorted thought patterns. This is a major psychiatric disorder and requires extensive treatment.

  4. Eating Disorders These disorders are marked by problems of eating which in turn affect your health adversely. These disorders are caused by mental issues and are primarily of three types; Binge eating disorder, anorexia (obsession over what one’s eats) and Bulimia (binge eating and then purging to avoid putting on weight).

  5. Bipolar Disorder – A very common mental disorder, this mental problem entails uncontrollable mood swings from happy (at times, euphoric) to sad in a short span of time or alternating phases of feeling ecstatic and often exhibiting reckless behavior to being severely depressed. This is a serious issue and can even result in suicidal tendencies.

  6. Substance Abuse and Addiction Problems – Another effect of stress is the increasing dependence on drugs and alcohol which in turn becomes a pattern and thus may cause problems in your life as you start using these substances to escape reality.

Common Mental Health Treatments-

Many people diagnosed with mental illness achieve strength and recovery through participating in individual or group treatment. There are many different treatment options available. There is no treatment that works for everyone – individuals can choose the treatment, or combination of treatments, that works best. Do consult a doctor before choosing one-

  1. Psychotherapy – The treatment of mental problems provided by a mental health counselor through dedicated sessions over a period of time is one of the most effective ways of countering problems. Psychotherapy explores thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and seeks to improve an individual’s well-being. Psychotherapy paired with medication is the most effective way to promote recovery.  

  2. Medication – This is the most common form of therapy that aims to reduce the chemical imbalances within the brain, either through oral pills or through injections.

  3. Support Groups – This is especially good as getting to talk to similar people and sharing experiences with them help in reducing the isolation, thus helping them vent out repressed emotions and connect with like -minded people.

  4. Residential Treatments – Effective in cases of drug or other forms of addiction as well as problems which require conditioning, hospitals and other residential treatment facilities such as a rehab center are used extensively to treat these along with other problems.

  5. Treatment through stimulation of the brain – There are many newer treatments which are proving to be effective by stimulating the neurotransmitters that help correcting imbalances within the brain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychologist and ask a free question.

Every action has a reaction: your reaction is due to something that is happening, or has happened and is not resolved or is not resolving itself. Can you think of what it is? An idle mind is a devil?s workshop: you may be too unoccupied for your youth and may feel that you need to do something more in life and feel stuck in your role as a housewife; and you may feel time is running out on you, which is not really true. May be you are compromising too much for a skilled person or for a person with so much potential. Then these negative thoughts will plague you. Or is your marriage in jeopardy or inadequate in some form? Or are you dissatisfied with your status in life? Or is there something bothering you from guilt? You see, there are many possibilities, and if you are not in touch with it meet with a counselor and through that interaction may truths will unfold and show up. Then you will be in a position to take appropriate action and dispel these negative thoughts and have a sound sleep when you hit the deck!

Hello- according to ayurveda, this symptoms occur due to vitiated pitta dosha. If you go for modern medicine, than the doctor will surely prescribe you any anti-depressant or anti-psychotic drugs which have well known side effects on body metabolism. Instead try this safe and effective ayurvedic treatment- a) divya mukta vati 1 bd. B) manas mitra vatak 1 tab twice daily. C) pittahsekhar ras 1 tab twice. D) wear rudraksha / moti necklase to calm your heart (gem must touch the chest portion). E) avoid spicy food and late night workout.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Clinical depression or depressive disorder is a neurochemical disorder. Clinical depression is usually treated with a combination of psychiatric medicines, psychotherapy, life style changes, meditation and exercise. I hope you are undergoing psychiatric treatment, otherwise, please approach a psychiatrist. Once you make the necessary amendments in your life with the help of the above said therapies and life style changes, learn how to manage the depressive episodes without medicines and learn to relax, the medicines can be weaned off over a period of one year. The best option for you is to undergo counseling and depression related therapy. Take care.

Dear user. There is nothing wrong in suspecting your new girl friend. This happens because you were cheated once. These kinds of thoughts will come again and again unless you win trust of her. Take time. Be patient. Let the negative thoughts come. Take care.

If you fight more than what is called normal and it seems like you are the only one who is being hurt, then you may need to get out of this relationship. These are the signs of a toxic relationship. This may sound harsh to you but you have to get out of this situation if you are continuously feeling isolated or lonely. There is nothing more important than your mental peace and physical health. These things are not worth your precious time and precious life. You only live once so you better make sure that everyday you live is in a beautiful state. Start having some respect for yourself and feel blessed for the life and family you are given. Don't cry over these things because your parents haven't raised you to this day with so much love to see you in pain and agony. Start taking control of your life and day. Just keep telling yourself that you only live once and start appreciating this wonderful life. You are a beautiful soul and a beautiful person so you should be treated with the same care and respect like everyone else. At the end of the day, only you are responsible for your state. No one can hurt you without your consent. Don't keep the key of your happiness in someone else's pocket. Stay blessed!
