Bipolar Mood disorder - Is It Hampering Your Relationship?

D.P.M(psychiatry) [Diploma in Psychological medicine] , MBBS

Bipolar Mood disorder - Is It Hampering Your Relationship?

Bipolar mood disorder, otherwise called manic depressive disorder or manic depression, is a genuine and serious mental problem. It is a disorder that can lead to unsafe conduct, damaged relations and career, and even self-destructive inclinations if it is not treated properly and on time.

Bipolar disorder is portrayed by outrageous changes in the state of mind, from mania to depression. Between these mood swings, a man with bipolar disorder may encounter normal moods as well. Here is how it can affect a relationship:

  • Bipolar disorder can turn into an issue from the very begin of a relationship. Exploring any sentimental relationship - whether it is dating or marriage - can be a risky attempt. Including bipolar disorder with its crazy ride of feelings in with the general problems in a relationship, and connections can turn out to be all the more difficult.
  • However, not everybody with bipolar disorder encounters the state of mood swings of depression and mania, but when those scenes do happen, they can destroy a relationship.
  • During the hyper stage, a person can lose his or her feeling of judgment. That implies spending all their money carelessly, breaking rules, and taking part in dangerous practices like medication and liquor abuse. When you have a partner with the bipolar issue who gets into a hyper stage, it can be extremely harmful to a great degree for the relationship since they might do things that hurt you or may trouble you financially.
  • Any number of things, from work problems to financial issues, can lead to fights and put a strain on a marriage. However, if one of the partners has a bipolar disorder, simple stressors can trigger their mood swings. That might be the reason why around ninety percent of the relations and marriages with a bipolar partner, fail.
  • Having a relationship when you live with bipolar disorder is troublesome. Nevertheless, it can surely be dealt with. It takes the efforts of both the partners to make it work.

The initial step is to get diagnosed and treated for your condition. Your specialist can give you hormone balancing drugs, for example, Lithium, with antidepressants to control your symptoms. Treatment with a clinician or psychologist is additionally vital. With treatment, you can figure out how to control the practices that are putting pressure on your relationship.

Here are a couple of different approaches to alleviate a portion of the weight on your relationship:

  1. Take your medicine as recommended
  2. Take a marriage education and counselling class
  3. Manage your stress in different ways whether it is writing in a diary, taking long strolls, or listening to music
  4. Attempt to adjust work with more calming exercises
  5. Adhere to a customary rest cycle
  6. Eat healthy and exercise frequently
  7. Maintain distance from liquor and caffeine

Make sure that you eat regularly and stay well hydrated. Having a glass of warm milk at night is usually helpful to relieve stress. Milk has tryptophan, a precursor to serotonin, bananas are also a rich source. If you are a vegetarian, then get your vitamin levels checked.

I am 39 years old. I have too much of work stress. Due to which I feel tightness in my chest and heavy brain. How to reduce my stress?

I am 39 years old. I have too much of work stress. Due to which I feel tightness in my chest and heavy brain. How to ...
There are many ways to relieve stress; some are scientifically proven while others are not. I can give you some idea regarding the proven methods of stress reduction. You will have read this with patience and understanding. In the present day world, stress is ubiquitous. It is said that the only person who is free of stress is a dead person! we all experience stress to varying extents; some of us manage it well while others, not so well. Thus stress management is a skill of paramount importance for all of us to learn and implement. So how do we manage stress? numerous methods have been proposed by experts and laypersons alike. But what works and what does not? do many of the popular methods actually work? can many of these methods stand the test of scientific efficacy evaluation? below we shall discuss those techniques that have been scientifically proven to be effective in a number of research studies. It is important to understand that the following 5 techniques are to be used together as each of these complement one another. Some of these might work well for some while not so well for others and vice versa. Essentially, they include a three pronged approach: changing the situation, changing the way we see the situation and changing the way our body responds to the situation. Changing the way one views the situation self monitoring: we are human beings, the most evolved, most complex and most intellectually advanced organisms on the planet. Thus, the way we process external stimuli at an intellectual level plays an important role in whether or not stress is generated. But before we intervene, we need to understand how we think, how we process data and what our thoughts are. This is the goal of self monitoring. Without going into the technical details, self monitoring basically involves observing and recording what our thoughts are, how we view a situation especially when we feel stressed, sad or anxious but also when we are feeling happy and relieved. Although it appears like a mere assessment, it can sometimes be healing too. When one observes oneself closely, errors become apparent and many times changes occur spontaneously without actually having to intervene. Cognitive restructuring: once one's thoughts and thinking patterns are analyzed, it is time to intervene expertly. The human brain is constantly trying to simplify the vast amount of data that is being continually thrown at us. In the vast majority of the situations, such a simplification is accurate and adaptive, but sometimes they are erroneous. In persons that are easily stressed out, there is a high rate of such erroneous conclusions. Changing the situation time management: besides making changes to the way we see the situation, it is also important many a time to change the situation itself. Time management and problem solving are the key elements in this endeavor. The key to managing time is to make a commitment to follow what one has decided. These decisions should be recorded in writing in a diary. The decision should be detailed and made after giving a proper thought. For instance, preparing a time table is an important way of managing time. But there are certain important points to keep in mind while preparing a timetable. Very often, timetables reflect extremes of thinking; some timetables are over ambitious, while others are half-hearted while still others are lax. It is important to prepare a time table that is reasonable and make a commitment to follow it. Problem solving: this is the other method of making a decisive change to one's environment. So what are the steps of problem solving? first identify the exact problem. Second generate all possible solutions without bias, without regard to practicality and without regard to likelihood of succeeding (brainstorming). It is well known that the best solution very often is the one, that at the face of it, might have seemed unsuitable or ineffective. Once all possibilities have been explored, rate the solutions in terms of practicability, logistics and likelihood of succeeding. After a careful evaluation of the ratings, decide upon the solution and take action. Do not procrastinate! changing the way one's body reacts to a situation relaxation techniques: now that we have changed the world around us and the way we view the world, it is time to change the way our body reacts to stress. This is where relaxation techniques are useful. Stress results in a number of bodily changes such as palpitations, muscle tension, headaches, fidgeting and so on, that reinforces stress. Relaxation techniques such as progressive muscular relaxation, deep breathing, yoga, pranayam, relaxing music can be useful. Friends, whether a bridge is able to hold itself when a train passes through it depends on the strength of the bridge and the weight of the train. So too whether we are able to handle stress depends on the amount of stress that we are faced with and how strong we are. Our strength in turn is dependent on the skills that we possess. The techniques outlined above, target all aspects of this stress machinery for maximal benefit. What's more, these techniques have been evaluated in scientific studies and found to reduce a number of stress related disorders such as heart conditions. So it is time all of us practiced at least some of these techniques!

I frequently get angry. I can not even bear even a small problem. And I always think to committed suicide. Why?

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Take care.

Fear is dangerous. It means you have lost confidence on yourself and you are unable to make the right decision. You imagine what may go wrong. You mess up your brain for nothing. There is more perceived fear than actual fear. Stop imagining and start living.

two or three large pegs are advisable. in your opinion it is 7 or 10 small pegs. it is ok. taking too much at one time leads so many problems. morning head weight, head ache, lack of sleep, weakness next day. take two pegs and eat good food. then you feel normal next day. taking heavy at one time it is not advisable. there are so many problems in home or road accidents or you may slip your tongue. some times it may not expectable. at your age beer is advisable. two or three is ok. dont ignore food after drinking. take heavy water after drinking. eat small snacks do not take heavy food. it is better to take with fruits. dont take alone. take with your friends. drinking means enjoyable thing. but not getting any problems. so take it mind. it is better to take 2 or 3 large pegs weekly once. ok enjoy every movement of life with magic movements. ok all the best.

Hi, am 27 years old I hve an habit of smoking from past 3 years I will take 2 cig per day, but now am willing to quit smoking as soon as possible please suggest me how can I quit smoking asap.

Sexologist, Mumbai
The way to quit smoking is by stopping it. Respect your SELF. It's the mind that gets the stick. It's the mind that chooses to say, "No" There are medicines and methods for the poorly motivated. Choose to triumph. The sense of accomplishment in quitting raises your self respect and "determination" to a higher level. This power translates into other challenges in life where determination and heroism make world of difference. 2 cigarettes a day. It's nothing. You can do it. Just do it.

Stress Due to Work

Partners in Health
Multi Speciality, Gurgaon
Stress Due to Work

Stress in mechanics is a load, pull or force or a system of forces producing a strain. In life, any event or situation that produces a strain therefore induces a physiological strain.

At work place, a system of forces work to produce desired results which more often than not produce a state of strain or makes an individual's life stressful. But the consequences of chronic stress are not just on individual health and well being but on the organizations as well. This affects the productivity and competitiveness. When an organisation faces a challenge, the flight or fright reaction ensues leading to increased threat perception, alertness and activity. In short term, it can improve productivity, but in case a state of threat is perpetually present like in case of a team led by an anxious or high strung individual, it produces chronic stress leading to lowering of performance. More often, sources of stress at work place are poor communication, unclear roles, discrepancies in expectations and skills, insecurity and sudden and significant change in work structure , to list a few.

Sources of Organisational Stress

  • Poor communication

  • Unclear role / objectives

  • Change

  • Role conflict (project management)

  • Career uncertainty/stagnation

  • Over / under promotion

  • Lack of training

  • Social or physical isolation

  • Unrealistic deadlines / targets

  • Travel

  • Lack of control over decisions

  • Inadequate supervision

  • Lack of feedback on good performance

  • New technology

  • Work overload / underload

  • Long working hours

The nervous system of an individual facing work stress due to any factor will react by producing a flight or fight response with ensuing physiological and/or psychological changes. These changes produce behavioural effects which if prolonged can be identified as signs of stress. While physical effects of stress lead to higher sick leaves, accident and absenteeism, psychological effects cause high anxiety and irritability leading to lower performance, disturbances in interpersonal relationship and more mistakes and miscalculations due to disturbance in concentration and self confidence .

Signs of rising stress:

  • Disturbed sleep

  • Loss of pleasure in things once enjoyed

  • Appetite changes

  • Irritability and impatience

  • Tiredness, lack of energy

  • Inability of concentrate, meet deadlines or make decisions

  • Increasing cynicism or loss of trust

  • Anxiety / panic attacks

  • Sense of losing control over events

Concerns over the effects of organizational stress on productivity, absenteeism and health related problems and consumption have substantially increased over past few decades. Employee health and well being are important assets to organizations and businesses. The Human Resource Department thus needs to watch for signs of stress in the employees and create an environment where the effects of stress can be mitigated. It requires understanding individual skills and deficiencies, clear and adequate communication, promoting an environment where deficiencies can be worked on without lowering self esteem or producing insecurity, encouraging support among team/staff members etc. On a personal level, individuals need to reduce stress by prioritizing their goals and following time management and self -fulfilment activities.

Ways to control stress


  • Agree targets

  • Review progress

Take control

  • Participate in decisions

  • Ensure travel commitments are reasonable

  • Update training

Make time for yourself

  • Allocate 'self' time

  • Pursue a hobby

Look after yourself

  • Exercise

  • Diet

  • Access support (Manager, Occupational Health / HR, Local agencies)

An in house counsellor who can maintain confidentiality and acts a bridge between the organization leaders and teams goes a long way in ensuring adequate stress management.

I want to give up smoking. Can't do it without help. What do you suggest/advise. I have been smoking for forty years. I had a very bad cough this winter and decided that I must give up.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
It is good that you are keeping physically active. What you now need to focus on is to come up with the strategies that will help you with the craving. For example, what would help you to distract your mind from smoking. If you like tea or coffee you may decide to grab one instead of a cigarette. Or perhaps keeping a chewing gum or candy and grab one instead. I would also suggest that exam might be a stressful time so do not try quitting right now as, it will increase your chances for relapse which will effect your motivation and confidence to quit. Best way to quit is to work on individualized plan and strategies that will help you maintain the motivation and help manage your craving. Following tips might help. I do offer 3 to 6 month program where I talk with client on a weekly basis. If you are interested than you may book initial online audio consultation. Smoking has many adverse effect on different system in your body. Congratulations that you are thinking about quitting it. Now you need to figure out the best strategy that works for you. Following information may help you. One of the few habits which takes very systematic approach and needs lot of support and individualized strategies to quit successfully. Data such as - since how long are you smoking and how many cigarettes a day you consume are important information. Also have you tried quitting it earlier? how successful were you? and what are your personal reasons to stop smoking? all these are also important part of your success strategy. Broadly speaking your reasons for not smoking work as your motivator. The stronger the reasons behind not smoking the higher the motivation and thus higher the chances for you to be successful. Also your body will have a withdrawal symptoms and it is very important to come up with strategies and solid plan to counter these withdrawal symptoms. These strategies should be tailor-maid as per your need and situation. If you consider these and many other individualized approach and if you have a solid support throughout your journey. You would be able to make a shift from being a smoker to a non smoker. Along with this eating healthy and having a good routine for eat and sleep is also very important. Exercise plays a huge roll when it comes to staying positively motivated and managing cravings. As a trained wellness coach I would be able to help you develop individualized plan and strategies. If you are open for an online consultation feel free to book an audio consultation. I also offer 3 to 6 months plan and support to help on a weekly basis. Hope this helps, wishing you very best,
