That might be frustrating for you. You might not be able to live a life of your choice and not accomplished what you wanted to. However, allopathic treatment can only offer symptomatic relief with some side effects of the medicines but no long term resolution. Alternative treatment like homeopathy and ayurveda offer gentle and holistic treatment which is safer and remove the problem from its roots. Counselling is another such intervention which has helped many individuals suffering from anxiety and sleep issues by teaching them practical tips and techniques to sleep naturally and also learn how to manage stress and tension better without losing your equilibrium. You will be able to modify the unhealthy and irrational thoughts due to which you feel anxious and replace them with healthy and rational thoughts and behaviours which will make you feel confident and liberated from within to take on tasks which caused anxiety before. Exercise every day and do deep breathing and pranaymas for calming down and feel functional.

My friend regularly has an habit of alcohol consumption. His age is 25. If he does not drinks for a day his body starts shivering. He can't wait at that moment runs to the shop and takes alcohol. Then his body comes to normal stage. Can't we change him?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Of course not: he needs to want to change first. He is an addict and the shivering he is experiencing is the withdrawal symptoms because his body is craving the substance. So, ideally he must want to stop this habit. Otherwise it will become a futile exercise. If this habit has become too much as we can see, then you will need to admit him into a center for rehabilitation. He will need to be there for at least 6 months and they will do detoxification and treatment for the addictive nature followed by extensive counseling. There are medicines that help with the drinking just to ease the initial craving and to act as an antabuse i.e. he will have a serious reaction, if he consumes even a small quantity of alcohol or alcohol based substances. It has to be carefully monitored to see that he not only consumes the medication but is also avoiding alcohol. Ultimately, it is his will power and the support that he receives from the medical fraternity and his close and dear ones. He must also learn to substitute and deal with the oral need, a rigid value system, the script issue, and of course take a 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 him on several measures and precautions he will need to take to stay with his resolve. Even after the rehabilitation he must attend AA meetings and continue this support for a long time. The family will also need to attend some sessions and go for Al-anon meetings for their co-dependency issues. He cannot be treated in isolation because the family has gotten used to his drinking and have made some unhealthy adaptations to somehow cope. Make a serious plan with whoever else’s support he can get and act on it fast. If he is not cooperative, there are some centers that will come and pick him up, after he is completely drunk, and admit him by force. This will however, require the family’s consent.

I am 22 years old and I'm a very heavy smoker I was try all things but don't work it help me what can I do to quit smoking.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Just the fact that you want to give up smoking is a good starting point. The habit can be very difficult to halt because of the many conditions attached to smoking. In fact these conditions can exist all through the day unlike other addictions. But your desire to want to stop is the most important factor. It is important to find out about the ill-effects of smoking to have a reason that alarms you about continuing in the habit. The information is really scary. The nicotine in tobacco smoke stimulates the heart beat to raise the blood pressure in no time at all. So you must avoid it like the plague: it is just very bad medicine for you. In fact it is highly toxic too. You will need to stop smoking or consuming any tobacco related items with immediate effect. 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 chewing gum or 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. All the damage you incurred earlier because of the smoking can be reverted back to normal in quick time.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Memory and mind power depends on three aspects. Understanding, retention and recollection. Recollection is easy if your retention is proper and flawless. Retention is possible when you are able understand what you read or learn. To understand you should have concentration. Concentration comes from effective learning techniques based on creative and active learning. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, socializing coupled with systematic learning improves your memory and mind power. Vegetables, fruits and nuts are perfect for memory. Brain games like sudoku and jigsaw puzzles helps too. Avocados, Beetroots, Blueberries, Broccoli. Celery, Coconut Oil, Dark Chocolate etc are good for improving concentration and memory. I suggest online education counseling. Take care.

Sir I am taking alcohol from last 10 yrs, but in these 3-4 years I am taking daily with high volume 180-360 Ml quantity daily basis. Now I am addicted please suggest what I have to do? How can I get back to alcohol free days.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Alcohol dependence involves intense craving or desire to drink alcohol. People drink for pleasure or rationalize it on external factors like family problems, work tension, etc. They drink continuously, i.e. Almost daily or even weekly once or twice with withdrawal symptoms, tolerance, bodily damage, etc. You need to consult a psychiatrist and go for 3 steps of de addiction. 1st is detoxification, when alcohol is stopped and the withdrawal is made smooth with minimal discomfort, 2 nd is maintenance and further deaddiction when the physical problems and psychological state of the individual is maintained and anti-craving drugs started 3 rd rehabilitation, when relapse prevention is the goal, while maintaining deaddiction. All the best.

Dear , dreams are brain unconscious processes. You hardly have any control over them. Dreams could be related to past also. If you are able to explain your dream in detail, we will be able to do" dream analysis" and tell you what it means. To avoid dreams, you should work physically hard and sleep soundly. Take care.

Like you aptly described it you are living in a dream world. Your mother has done a marvelous job and you should not let it all go to waste by living in a fantasy world. Wanting to be rich is not a bad idea but expecting it to fall in your lap is just not on. All rich people have worked hard, and some of them without qualifications. You on the other hand are well qualified and you now need to go out and face the world. May be mom has been too protective around you and you have become lazy because of that. Plan your every day and chalk out a course of action with long term goals, and set up the short term goals to achieve those major objectives. I also suggest that you do an aptitude test and seek career guidance from a counselor to identify what you are made for and get serious about attaining them. The best reward you can give your mom is to give her a new lease of life: she is the one who should now live a life of comfort and enjoy your earnings. This cannot be done by living in an unreal world.

Hello- If everything is good and sound regarding your sexual organs medically, it may be that you are right to diagnose the situation as “fear.” Once a woman has had a painful experience, it’s common for her to brace against pain. That tension causes the very pain she was trying to avoid. Then the next time she tries to have sex, she braces even more which makes penetration even less likely. Over time, the situation gets worse and worse. If that’s the case with you, please consider talking with a psychologist or social worker who has experience treating such problems. You can learn new ways to manage your fears so that you can relax. You and your partner can learn ways to help you calm and get ready so that you can enjoy the closeness of an intimate relationship.

Dear Lybrate user. There is no allopathic medicine that is free from side effects. Of course taking Depran for a long time may cause reduced sex drive/desire in SOME INDIVIDUALS not for all the patients taking it. Fortunately your blood tests results are normal according to you. It seems that your body chemistry has well-tolerated the drug escitalopram (Depran). Probably you are searching for some knowledge about the drugs you are on and too much concerned with the side effects. You need not worry about it. Just stick to your doctors advice/treatment. If you go deep into gathering knowledge about the drugs, you will be in trouble like psychogenic erectile dysfunction because the unnecessary anxieties produced by the fearful thoughts. Just relax. Have any form of physical exercises regularly with healthy diet and engage in activities that are positive and you enjoy more.

Quitting might be taxing if you are smoking for a long, in that case self determination won't help. You need to meet psychiatric and have medicine otherwise make a quit buddy maintain a log for urges triggers and situations it shall help you to assess and you shall be able to eradicate triggering points.

I am 39 years old patient of schizoaffective bipolar disorder on medication for last 15 years. And now I have reduced renal activity like urinating only once during daytime. I have sideeffects of bipolardisorder medication like laziness throughout the day, excessive salivation, weightgain and lowmood. I belong to a military family with severe socio-economic issues. Please help.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have been pumping your system with medication for so many years that that low level of urination is not at all healthy. Please increase the consumption of water to at least 2 liters every day. This will flush out all the toxins from synthetic medicines and cleanse your system regularly. Whether you like or not and even if it seems impossible, you must go for vigorous exercise every day. It is your life and it is up to you to put in all this effort. I do not know what kind of support you have at home but a lot will depend on your motivation. I know that that will be very low but you cannot be passive and expect any results. There are some neurological exercises that will help too. Now this is my biggest concern: have you been in therapy along with the medication? I am sure not. Get into counseling as quickly as you can, whatever your economic condition. You must seek this type of help for any improvement. It will also support the effects of medication. You must exercise vigorously, sleep only during the night, and eat a healthy diet of fiber like whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. At all times you must be responsible, be respectful and be functional. These three are cardinal rules to adhere to that will make some effective changes in your life.

Sir, I am a cool and calm person but rarely I'll get high angry at that time I can't control my anger and I'll break any object's which are near to me. How can I control my anger.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
1. Think before you speak In the heat of the moment, it's easy to say something you'll later regret. Take a few moments to collect your thoughts before saying anything — and allow others involved in the situation to do the same. 2. Once you're calm, express your anger As soon as you're thinking clearly, express your frustration in an assertive but nonconfrontational way. State your concerns and needs clearly and directly, without hurting others or trying to control them. 3. Get some exercise Physical activity can help reduce stress that can cause you to become angry. If you feel your anger escalating, go for a brisk walk or run, or spend some time doing other enjoyable physical activities. 4. Take a timeout Timeouts aren't just for kids. Give yourself short breaks during times of the day that tend to be stressful. A few moments of quiet time might help you feel better prepared to handle what's ahead without getting irritated or angry. 5. Identify possible solutions Instead of focusing on what made you mad, work on resolving the issue at hand. Does your child's messy room drive you crazy? Close the door. Is your partner late for dinner every night? Schedule meals later in the evening — or agree to eat on your own a few times a week. Remind yourself that anger won't fix anything and might only make it worse. 6. Stick with 'I' statements To avoid criticizing or placing blame — which might only increase tension — use "I" statements to describe the problem. Be respectful and specific. For example, say, "I'm upset that you left the table without offering to help with the dishes," instead of, "You never do any housework." 7. Don't hold a grudge Forgiveness is a powerful tool. If you allow anger and other negative feelings to crowd out positive feelings, you might find yourself swallowed up by your own bitterness or sense of injustice. But if you can forgive someone who angered you, you might both learn from the situation. It's unrealistic to expect everyone to behave exactly as you want at all times. 8. Use humor to release tension Lightening up can help diffuse tension. Use humor to help you face what's making you angry and, possibly, any unrealistic expectations you have for how things should go. Avoid sarcasm, though — it can hurt feelings and make things worse. 9. Practice relaxation skills When your temper flares, put relaxation skills to work. Practice deep-breathing exercises, imagine a relaxing scene, or repeat a calming word or phrase, such as, "Take it easy." You might also listen to music, write in a journal or do a few yoga poses — whatever it takes to encourage relaxation. 10. Know when to seek help Learning to control anger is a challenge for everyone at times. Consider seeking help for anger issues if your anger seems out of control, causes you to do things you regret or hurts those around you.

Good afternoon. I've been seeing some very slight shadows/outlines beside objects since 3 days ago and I'm very worried about it. My vision has always been perfect and I've done a brain scan 5 months ago (for other reasons), and it was normal. But since this weird vision symptom started, I've been worrying if it can be caused by some serious problem in the brain. Is it possible that, though I have a recent brain scan with normal results, this vision problem can be caused by some serious brain problem? I've been to a neurologist yesterday, and she said that this vision problem couldn't be caused by any serious brain condition because in 5 months a serious thing wouldn't develop enough to make me have vision symptoms like this. She said I didn't need to do another brain scan. But I'm still worried about being a brain tumor that could have developed in 5 months that's causing these slight shadows, because they are still very slight, so I'm worried the shadows could be not so bad yet because the problem could be in the beginning. I have severe anxiety and my neurologist said I should blame these vision symptoms on it, but I'm still very worried, as these shadows/outlines are scary. You think I should do another brain scan? Or is my neurologist right? Thank you.

Development of a tumour in five months time is very rare phenomena and your neurologist seems right in saying that. As you say you have been seeing shadows around objects only since 3 days, I wonder are these symptoms all the time or you see them once a while. If you see them all time, you should see a ophthalmologist and get your eyes checked too. I hope that will resolve your anxiety too.

Dear lybrate-user, please think of alternative ways of spending time with your family. Write them down in a diary. Keep getting those thoughts of alternatives forcibly in your mind. Record how less depressed you feel as a percentage. Examples of alternatives can be 1. Meeting every day on skype or telephone. 2. Visiting home town on week ends. 3. Making arrangements for family to be at chennai for few days. 4. Fixing the time frame to get the family to chennai. You can write few more alternatives by yourself or by asking your wife. Please pay me rs. 150 if this advise is useful.
