If we have an anxiety disorder, how to control that or rather how to deal with it?
Pls help me with some advice.
Hi lybrate-user, if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. First and foremost, don't let your anxiety cause you to make poor decisions about anxiety treatments. The reality is that most" rapid" treatments don't work. You'll find many people that claim that they have an extract or a medicine that can cure your anxiety immediately, and unfortunately it's never the case - it's people taking advantage of you in your time of need, and hoping the placebo effect will be enough to cure your anxiety. Even prescription medications have a" false" component. Prescription medicines can give you some help with anxiety, but that help is only temporary, and your mind and body can actually become dependent on these medications. As soon as you stop taking them, your anxiety may not only come back - it could even be worse than before. Curing your anxiety is a process - it's a process that can happen, for everyone, but those that hope they can get instant anxiety help are going to be disappointed, and possibly taken advantage of. Your symptoms define your anxiety if you really want to cure your anxiety forever, you need to have a long term treatment plan that takes into consideration your anxiety symptoms, what you're suffering from, how badly you're suffering, and your specific anxiety disorder. Imately effective treatment. Setting up a long term plan - making realistic goalsi possible to reduce your anxiety every day. There are countless tips to learn to manage it. But you need to do two things: you need to make sure that you're giving yourself realistic goals. You need to make it a long term plan. You can get anxiety help now - help that will genuinely reduce your experience with anxiety. But it will only reduce it so much. You'll still need to keep at it, and commit to it in a way that will guarantee short and long term results. Realistic goals will ensure that you don't give up. You're bound to have setbacks, because life isn't stress free. A long term plan will also make sure that you keep at it - you'll not only have something to do next, you'll also know what to do next. For example, let's look at several strategies you can do right now that will reduce your anxiety: start jogging jogging isn't just for your health. Jogging releases endorphins, which are neurotransmitters that improve mood. It also tires muscles, and there is evidence that extra energy in muscles becomes converted to a feeling of anxiety. Sleep better getting more sleep will fight anxiety right away. Far too many people are allowing themselves to be sleep deprived, but sleep is one of the most important and easy tools your mind has for coping with stress. Breathing training many anxiety symptoms, particularly for those with anxiety attacks, are a result of inadequate breathing techniques. Anxiety can actually train your body to breathe poorly, leading to hyperventilation and a variety of related symptoms. Exposure therapy exposure is a cognitive behavioral technique that trains you to get used to things that used to cause you anxiety. For example, if you often get anxiety when you feel dizzy, you spin around in a chair and use a variety of techniques to calm your mind. Lifestyle changes many lifestyle changes that you will need to make in order to live with anxiety also require long term changes. For example, who you spend time with may need to change, as will how you react at your workplace. These strategies take longer, and require more effort and planning on your part. They're also not immediately successful, and there are often setbacks. Realistic goals and an effective and healthy plan can reduce the effects of these setbacks. You'll also need to be okay with admitting to yourself that you have an anxiety problem that needs to be solved. If you continue to try to fight the truth about your anxiety, you'll struggle to overcome it. Anxiety and stress are very real problems that affect people every day, and there's nothing wrong with you if you suffer from them. As soon as you can come to terms with your anxiety, you'll be on the right path towards treating it. Consult for psychotherapy for anxiety consult me for same.

Homosexuality is a result of mutation of a gene called fruuit fly. You have got to accept what you are. There is no way you can change your sexual preference, you cannot force yourself to get attracted to females. You will be inviting life-long conflict if you force anything upon yourself or try to be what you are not if you are born with this orientation, you will only be attracted physically to guys. Know that and accept it!

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. 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. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. 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. Take care.

I am giving you some health tips that will certainly help you to quit smoking 1. As you have decided to quit smoking this is first and most important step now we have to concentrate on gradual decreasing number of cigarettes/bidis and I am giving you some changes to your lifestyle you can make that may help you resist the temptation . And these changes are very easy to do 2. Change in Diet: some foods, including meat, make cigarettes more satisfying. And food like fruit and vegetables, cheese, Milk, dahi, and other home made vegetarian food with low salt and spices make cigarettes taste terrible. Drinks, alcohol, cola, tea and coffee all make cigarettes taste better.So drink more water and juice. Also you can switch from wine to a vodka and tomato juice), affects their need to reach for a cigarette. 3. Physical exercise : Even a five-minute walk or stretch) cuts cravings and help brain to produce anti-craving chemicals. 4. Make a nonsmoking friends: this is one of the most important step 5. There are Nicotine replacement therapy available in form of patches, tablets, lozenges, gum and a nasal spray. This therapy also help to quit smoking and neutralizing craving episode 6. Education about adverse effect also encourage us to quit smoking like it causes heart attacks, mouth cancer, lung cancer so better to quit as soon as possible 7. You can taper of numbers of ciggarete/ Bidis gradually like if you take 10 cigarettes per day reduce it to 8-9 in a day for 3-4 days than 7-8 in next 3-4 days graually you can decrease no upto 1-2 ciggrete per day and finally quit it completley 8. And one other important thing if you smoke one cigarette in half hour than you can prolong this interval like you can take 1-2 hours for one cigarette so that gradually it can be quit. Consult Physician/ me for further Management

Hos should I decrease my hemoglobin level. Now its level is 20. How should I decrease it at normal level. I stop smoking also.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Congratulations for stopping smoking. When you smoke, your lungs need more oxygen to clean blood properly. So more red blood cells and hemoglobin. Now that you have stopped smoking, your lungs will start functioning well. There is no need for excess oxygen -> more red cells -> more hemoglobin. In due course, hemoglobin will come to normal level, if you continue to breathe well WITHOUT smoking. You can do breathing exercises to speed it up.

Dear lybrate user. You are already married and living with your wife for 18 years. You must be having children too. Learning to be peaceful in your life is your responsibility. If you think that others (including your wife and children) should bring peace in your life, it is a waste. Understand this factor and change your attitude. You need online counseling. Take care.

You are not depressed but have despair, disappointment, frustration and hopelessness. It may convert in depression if prolonged. You need psychological counseling and training to learn either to avoid or to control or to tolerate or to cope with your despair, disappointment, frustration and hopelessness. You have to learn stress, anger & despair management as well as to manage the situation smartly without hurting anyone otherwise your social and personal relationships would be damaged and also keep you hopeful and motivated by controlling over your despair.

Be positive in thinking and ou will get job when it is time for you Ways to Fight Depression If you feel depressed, it's best to do something about it — depression doesn't just go away on its own. In addition to getting help from a doctor or therapist, here are 5 things you can do to feel better. 1. Exercise. Take a 15- to 30-minute brisk walk every day — or dance, jog, or bike if you prefer. People who are depressed may not feel much like being active. In addition to getting aerobic exercise, some yoga poses can help relieve feelings of depression. Two other aspects of yoga — breathing exercises and meditation — can also help people with depression feel better. 2. Nurture yourself with good nutrition. Depression can affect appetite. One person may not feel like eating at all, but another might overeat.. Proper nutrition can influence a person's mood and energy. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and get regular meals (even if you don't feel hungry, try to eat something light, like a piece of fruit, to keep you going). 3. Identify troubles, but don't dwell on them. Try to identify any situations that have contributed to your depression. When you know what's got you feeling blue and why, talk about it with a caring friend. Talking is a way to release the feelings and to receive some understanding. 4. Express yourself. With depression, a person's creativity and sense of fun may seem blocked. Exercise your imagination (painting, drawing, doodling, sewing, writing, dancing, composing music, etc.) and you not only get those creative juices flowing, you also loosen up some positive emotions. Take time to play with a friend or a pet, or do something fun for yourself. Find something to laugh about — a funny movie, perhaps. Laughter helps lighten your mood. 5.Try to notice good things. Depression affects a person's thoughts, making everything seem dismal, negative, and hopeless. If depression has you noticing only the negative, make an effort to notice the good things in life. Try to notice one thing, then try to think of one more. Consider your strengths, gifts, or blessings. Most of all, don't forget to be patient with yourself. Depression takes time to heal.

If you want more clarifications please ask me directly and not in open questions session

Know it's a self-fulfilling prophecy. We've talked about your thinking and now we're going to talk about its results: if you think negatively, your results will be negative, too. If you walk into a party thinking no one will like you and you won't have fun, you'll spend the entire party on the wall, making zero connections and not having fun. With positive thinking, positive things can happen. There's no other way around it. The opposite is true too! if you think things go well, they often do. Whether or not they're going better in your head or in reality is another question, but the reality in your head is the only one that matters. Try it out! take control of your negative thoughts. With all the talking we've done about negativity, you can probably recognize which ones are negative and which ones aren't. But if you can't, take any thought you have about yourself or other people. If it's a fact, reword it. If it's assuming anything, reword it. And if it's discouraging, reword it. So" no one at work understands me" becomes" I haven't made a connection at work with anyone. Yet" you'll have to be mindful and aware, but it's doable. Easier said than done. Totally. It's one of the toughest habits to break. Knowing that, start in small chunks. Just ten minutes a day where if a negative thought comes up, you stop it in its tracks. Then work your way up until you spend all day monitoring yourself and taking control. Your entire demeanor can and will change. Consider your personality. Loneliness for an extrovert and loneliness for an introvert are two very different things. Explain your loneliness to someone different from you and they may not even be able to fake that they understand. So consider your personality -- what would content you? an introvert may just want one or two people to form a genuine relationship with and they may not need that much attention from them. They may be looking for a personal sense of fulfillment and not need that from anyone else. An extrovert may need to be around a team of people to feel like their social meter is getting adequately filled. The right people, of course! where do you fall on the spectrum? avoid negative situations. It's a bad idea to drink heavily, do drugs, or spend your life in front of the television. It's a doubly bad idea to do so if you're in a bad mood or feeling particularly lonely. So avoid situations that just exacerbate the problem. You may feel better temporarily, but you'll feel worse over the long-run.

My brother is suffering from psychiatric problem(Schizophrenia) since 25 years. Medicine is continuing. His behavior is like normal, but he is purchasing news papers and wrtting in news paper for whole day. No improvement brought over that. Can You suggest how to escape from that.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Your brother is obviously not on a rehabilitation program of occupational therapy. Mere medical approach will not suffice. He needs to know how to spend his time productively; and his mind and body needs to be engaged in some useful manner. His mind is already busy with disturbing thoughts and it needs to be distracted and focused in activities that can train the brain to trigger more healthy neuronal pathways and thus become a healthy person. He may ideally contact a psychotherapist for this follow up. Additionally, I could suggest some exercises that he could do to serve the same purpose. You may contact me if you need them.

There are only 24 hours in a day and it' s recommended that you divide each day so that you are able to work, relax, sleep, exercise, socialise etc. If you are not doing this on a regular basis, then stress creeps into life. You need to design your life along these principals and decide what is best for you. These days, this balance is lost and is the basic reason for stress in life. Counselling helps you to bring in balance into your life by helping you to decide what is your expectations and dreams about life and if you are in line with this.

Hi. I'm sorry to hear about your mother. From what you describe, she seems to be suffering from mental illness, the nature of which can only be clearly ascertained after detailed evaluation. Many people suffering from mental illness are resistant to visiting doctors, and families are often not able to force them to consult a doctor, leading to a delay in commencement of care, and consequent long term damage. I would suggest you to take the assistance of the local police for escorting her to a psychiatrist. Another option is to contact your local hospital's psychiatry department. Many hospitals (especially government run mental health institutions, such as ihbas, in delhi) have mobile mental health units for this very purpose. Take care.
