Dear , you must understand what is mental disorder first. Mental disorder is not disappointment, distress, anxiety, stress, irritation, anger, aggression etc. You need to be more clear with the symptoms and the details you provide here so that we will be able to provide you with correct diagnosis and advice. Take care.

You should never discontinue medication on your own even if you are feeling better. Consult your doctor and if you are not happy with that person go for a second opinion. In the meantime meet a counselor too and get a lot of help regarding handling the daily stresses and challenges with some skills and techniques. If you look too far into the future, you will be scared. Most of what you are scared about does not happen: as I remember in the last count 90% of what we worry about will not happen. In fact, if you look back and see from all the worrying you have done so far, has any of those things really happened? In other words, we simply trouble ourselves. There may be another contributor, and that is if there were any past influences that have made your system prone to anxiety. You will need to check into your background for that information. When you do find out meet with a counselor and work this out. You must also develop your constitution to make it fit enough to cope with fear, felt many times unnecessarily. You may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Take care of the following: Mental stability can be achieved by learning a few skills in handling emotions in an appropriate manner. Stress management skills, which have a lot to do with expressing emotions, will need to be a major part of your recovery program. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. Please persevere and cooperate through all the support you need and you will come through successfully. Develop your body’s health by physical fitness through exercise, good rest (sleep), and a proper diet. Anyway, what you need to focus on is to do vigorous exercise of the aerobic kind for the heart’s fitness; meditation for the brain’s fitness; sleep for a well rested mind and body; a sound spiritual well-being for good confidence and stability; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the anxiety with a calmer disposition. If your mind, constitution, and your emotions are in check and fit, you will never be disturbed again. The earlier you tackle this, the easier it is going to be. You can also take this measure: To slow your heart beat breathe deep and slow into your diaphragm, it utilizes an extra 80% of your lungs to absorb more oxygen. The heart beats faster due to more oxygen requirement and slow breathing also will reduce stress.

I am 23 years old male, I admire a girl so much I want her to be my sister because I believe her influence can change my life, the problem is I can't tell her because I fear she might refuse, and I am also afraid to approach her often because she might think I'm sticky, and she doesn't respond to such people and I'm already getting this signal of her ignoring me, because whenever I ask her anything (on Facebook) it takes her more than 24 hrs to reply, she never did this with anyone else. This thing is making me sad.

If the thoughts of career goals and achievment predominate your thoughts and behaviours, since you are only 23, you will get every thing you need for a happy life including an intimate relationship. Otherwise, you will loose both the present and future, if you keep engaging in these activities like. Deep dive into your career life. All the best.

Honest suggestion is to start meditation and re- discover yourself. Do deep breathing. Take palliative herbs which control the upgraded avels in mind e. G. Brahmi, jatamansi and few others. Do not take hypnotic medicines. Pl remember, depression and anger will not solve problems. You need counselling.

Anger is type of negative emotions. Do yoga, pranayam everyday. It helps to decrease the ratio of your anger. When you feel like angry that time you instruct yourself'stop' which helps you to think before do something.

How to increase concentration power, building strong emotion and how to maintain it?

MSC Psychotherapy & Counselling, CHt Hypnotherapy, MD Alternative Medicine, MBBS, Diploma in Public Health
Psychologist, Mumbai
Self hypnosis and mindfulness meditations help to improve concentration and we can learn to handle our emotions as well by releasing stress. You may simply start with mindful breathing. The purpose of this exercise is to simply notice, accept and be aware of your breath. When our breathing relaxes our muscles relax. Our mind relaxes and anxiety goes away, we are better able to focus then. Procedure Sit quietly in a chair with both feet on the ground and your hands in your lap. Allow yourself to feel centred in the chair. Bring all of your attention to the physical act of breathing. Start to notice the breath as it enters your body through your nose and travels to your lungs. Notice with curiosity whether the inward and outward breaths are cool or warm, and notice where the breath travels as it enters and departs. Also notice the breath as your lungs relax and you inhale through your nose. Don’t try to do anything with your breathing – simply notice it, pay attention to it and be aware of it. It doesn’t matter if your breathing is slow or fast, deep or shallow; it just is what it is. Allow your body to do what it does naturally. You be the witness to this process. Initially start with 10 minutes twice a day. Then slowly increase time. Wish you all the best.

Iam 43yrs old woman I feel to suicide for so many years. Did I have courage to take that step.

Dear , why do you want to commit suicide? there are no problems in life which cannot be solved. Otherwise, because of the life given problems, almost half of the earth's population should commit suicide. See the fate of african country people. They are starving for everything and their suicide rate far too less than indian people. Wrong perception is the key. Please provide me more information and details. I will help you overcome any problems. Believe me. Take care.

Hi! I am 26 years old and I have been smoking for past 6years. I started with 2-3 cigarettes a day then near to a packet. Now I have reduced it to 2-3 again. Is there any way that I can detoxify my body completely and quit smoking?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Yes, there is a way but not by reduction: ideally you should give it up immediately and completely. You have to quit cold turkey because the body and mind will torture you endlessly while attempting reduction in smoking. 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. When quitting, you must take one day at a time; though you must give up all smoking at once, and promptly. If you look too far ahead you will get discouraged and will give up. If you sit and count the number of days you have given up, that will also focus too much on achievement. You must focus on the here and now, on that day to be precise. After all quitting is not that easy due to many factors. So even if you fail one day, you must try and try again. Very few people succeed in their first attempt. Your persistence will eventually pay off. The urge to discontinue is hampered by many factors but the worst of them is the conditioning. 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 but true and you must remind yourself about this every day. 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 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.

My father expired last year. I have 8 years old son and husband is working in Merchant Navy working abroad like 6 months out of india and 3-4 months in india. Once my father expired then I was with my mother for 1 year in patna and this also resulted in discontinuing my kid education, however kid was still going to home tution. Now the thing is that as per the mutual agreement from my husband I took this 1 year to give moral support to my mother. Now I am back to my husband where we are staying i. E. HYDERABAD. So I still want to support my mother as she has responsibility of 1 more unmarried daughter. Regarding my family then 1 elder daughter with 3 kids settled in delhi and 1 younger daughter unmarried working in Patna and 1 younger brother working in Merchant Navy. So I want to support my Mother for 1 more year for which my husband is not accepting and also I told him that I will continue the kid education in patna. He is saying that I can go and support but I have to leave the kid so that he can stay here and take care of the kid for 1 year and I can come back and we both are emotionally attached that we do not want to take divorce. FYI - My mother is suffering from anxiety and depression and insomnia, hypertension, cholesterol and dyslipidemia. My husband wants that either I can bring my mother to hyderabad and can stay with me but this is not possible as my mom cannot leave her younger daughter alone. He also said that my younger sister can quit the job and take care of mother but we do not want to do that. Same thing for my brother to quit the job for 1 year and to stay with my mom but we do not want to do this. Also my elder sister is ready to come over patna and take care of my mom but my mom do not want to do this as she has 3 kids age 13 and 14 which will be difficult to manage bcoz of their education. THIS IS THE MATTER WHICH IS CAUSING STRESS ON OUR EVERYDAY LIFE AND THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT IT MAY END UP TO divorce. SO PLEASE HELP US.

Hi lybrate-user, I can understand that you would be in tremendous stress. But your husband's worries are also correct. You may tackle the situation like this that try to make your mother and your siblings understand your situation. You all can decide to take the responsibility of your mother turn by turn. That your mother can stay 3-4 months each with everyone if u. Your younger sister because she is working can stay in some working women's hostel and when your brother comes home during that period your mother can stay with your brother and sister in patna. This way she would also feel good and won't feel bad when she would be with you or your elder sister. Both the husbands of you both sisters also won't feel burdened with this system. So try to make it a team effort so that you get less stressed. Regards
