You seem to be in an anger-related depression, and hopefully it does not go into a more severe condition. I think you need to meet with a counselor and a psychiatrist and get an immediate evaluation and proper treatment. Even after any prescription I recommend that you continue with the counseling until the whole matter is resolved. Your cooperation is absolutely essential up to the end: just a caution, many people quit treatment when they feel well, which is not the sign but only when you feel cured (as defined by the professionals alone) should you cease any therapy. Because you have an anger-related depression, there will be violence towards self in the form of suicide: you have become your worst enemy. This anger may be rooted in your childhood and it will help to investigate that and locate the genesis and treat the same with some therapy. In the meantime you can follow these simple rules too: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least 30 minutes but not in the scotching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Work with a counselor who is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive everyday and learn to be contended with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do calisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly.

Hello Doctor,
I am 28 yr, F.
How to get rid of anxiety and nervousness and be at peace naturally? Please guide me,
You have not been dealing with your fears for a long time, perhaps. All unexpressed feelings will find some other way of expressing itself in the body. These will lead to psychological problems of various kinds. You need to be trained in dealing with emotions and retain it as an ongoing process in life. Meet a counselor and get some guidance in this regard. In the meantime, please follow an exercise regiment, eat well and keep good company. Make your last meal, as far as possible, a pure carbohydrate meal. Eat early and make it a small meal too. Avoid all foods that cause flatulence. Sleep on your left ear most of the night. Every time you feel fear talk to someone about it. Do some deep breathing, with your left nostril shut, and you will immediately calm down. If it gets too much, place your index finger on your shut lips and puff up your cheeks tightly with air and hold it for some time. The back pressure of the air will press the vagus nerve at the rear of the throat and immediately reduce the heart rate to calm you down. If it is worse, please visit a counselor and if that person advises then meet with a psychiatrist too. If this is a recent phenomenon, you could just do all of the recommendations suggested below too. If the fear is more from childhood, you will need to work with a counselor. The counselor will help you see what are the things frightening you, and why now. Sometimes a recent event may have triggered what was lurking under the surface for a long time. That too must be identified and dealt with. In that case you may be taking normal fear and converting it into abnormal fear like anxiety and so on. Any way 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; and a diet with lots of vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Emotionally you need the help of a counselor and that will help you tremendously to move from anxiety to normal fear. 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.

My case may take your time but I request you to pay attention now we are a family of five as I just got married. My parents relationship were not healthier since starting. But they do love both of us. I left my home in 2006 for college and then job and it impacts my mother mind hard. Since 6-7 years I am noticing she lost her confidence. She keep standing in the kitchen for 3-4 hours and doing nothing. Starts looking the roof and start laughing and she never eat food with anyone. It' s not that my father is a bad guy. We all tried to understand her mindset but not possible. Now my sister also moved out of karnal for job and now just my parents are left at home. Now when I see my mom, I want to help her. I don' t know what exactly is going in her mind and she never shared her feelings. She just keep calling me and ask for my health and food. I do worry for her and she is not in good state of mind. I saw her sometime talking to wall or something. My father also tries to help her but we don' t know how to handle or do? i' m ready to do anything just to bring her back to normal. Please help!

Your mother had gone through a very stressful and hard life after marriage, I think. She had her desires suppressed. She could not express herself, openly and this led to her present state of mind. For her treatment proper counselling is required and certain psychotic drugs to be recommended after counselling.

I have a flight fobia. When I entered into the flight I am getting tensed every time. And while the flight gets ready to take off I feel my all pressures from my belly comes to my chest. That time I feel that I do not breath properly mainly while the flight is in air. But while the plane landed that time I feel easy and feel OK. That time I realise may be my feeling of uneasiness comes due to my anxiety. Pls advice how can I overcome from this type of phobia.

Please take Aconite 30 - at an interval of 15 minutes when you are about to take off - perhaps when you reach and have had your seat take the first dose. Also you need to plug your ear with cotton before the flight is read to take off - this can ease your problem.

Hi, The medication you are taking helps to reduce anxiety and in getting better sleep. You will have to consult your doctor regarding how long you should keep taking it. According to me. You should also address your anxiety relating to fear of meeting with a road accident again. Sometimes we face an unfortunate incident and somehow our mind starts over focusing on that 1 particular incident or 1 particular detail out of the whole incident and blows it out of proportion as a result of which we start getting anxious thoughts and worries which then lead to bodily symptoms such as acidity, heartburn, palpitations etc. Later these bodily symptoms start becoming a source of anxiety and worry thus compounding the problem. For example, you are 31 years old and as per your query you met with 1 accident that too where you did not face any loss or injury (I presume). 31 years x 365 days = 11315 days. Out of 11315 days, you met with an accident once but now your mind is only focusing on that 1 day and ignoring the rest 11314 days when nothing happened. Accepted that the possibility is always there but the probability is quite low. We cannot stop living our lives because of a fear that may or may not come true. Anxiety emerges when we give undue importance to a thought that arises in our mind and start believing it to be true without sufficient ground to do so. Please try to focus on the many times when nothing has happened to you and relax. That will help you the most in the long run. Do not allow one single thought to over power your entire life, I am sure there are other beautiful aspects to it too which make life worthwhile. Hope this helps.

Stress Management - Techniques That Can Help!

DNB PSYCHIATRY, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Stress Management - Techniques That Can Help!

Stress management encompasses techniques intended to equip a person with effective coping mechanisms for dealing with psychological stress.

Definition of stress: Stress management defines stress precisely as a person's physiological response to an external stimulus that triggers the "fight-or-flight" reaction.

Causes of stress: Many things can trigger the stress reaction, including danger, threat, news, illness, as well as significant changes in one's life such as the death of a loved one.

Techniques of stress management include:

  • Self-understanding (e.g. self-identification as a Type A or as a Type B personality)
  • Self-management (e.g. becoming better-organized)
  • Conflict resolution
  • Adopting a more positive attitude
  • Self-talk
  • Breathing exercises
  • Meditation
  • Exercise
  • Altering your diet
  • Taking more regular and effective rest

Time Management Techniques

Some techniques of time management may help a person to control stress. For example:

  • Becoming more organized and reducing the generation of clutter 
  • Setting priorities can help reduce anxiety
  • Using a "to-do" list of tasks that a person needs to complete can give a person a sense of control and accomplishment

Effective stress management involves learning to set limits and to say "No" to some demands that others make.

Manage and Reduce your Stress

If you are one of the many people who want to alleviate your stress, you can learn some simple techniques to help you get out of the vicious cycle of leading a stressful life. Your stressful life does not just affect you, but everyone around you. It affects your relationships as well as any children or co-workers. Most of all, it can actually make you physically ill.

There are many facets to stress. Stress manifests itself in many different ways and can be either self-induced or something that occurs in life. We can never eliminate stress from our lives as stressful situations are part of life. However, we can learn to react to stress in a positive manner and take control of the situation rather than allowing the stress to remain in control. This book will teach you different tips as well as old secrets on how to identify the stressors in your life as well as learn to manage them.
