Anxiety - 10 Things You Must Know About It!

Anxiety - 10 Things You Must Know About It!

Anxiety is a common issue with growing teenagers. It is not the typical anxiety before exams or academic projects. It is more than that. Anxiety may be the result of the hormonal changes, which predominantly affect the adolescent years of growth. While your body copes with different changes, your mind tangles between the future liberty and present restrictions. Knowing certain facts about this anxiety trail can help you to cope with it.

1. Anxiety is not always a disease: Anxiety is not always a disease. It is a normal phenomenon among adolescent teenagers. However, in certain cases it may be severe for some teenagers. They may feel crippled with anxiety. Under such cases, one would require psychiatric help.

2. Talk to someone: A great way to relieve yourself from stress due to anxiety is to speak with someone. It can be a friend or someone close to share your thoughts. If you know the reason of your anxiety, share it, discuss it. You will definitely feel better.

3. Take a break: Entertainment and break from academic work and schedule is necessary for teenagers to lower anxiety traits. However, if the anxiety is due to peers, you may even take a break from them and engage in family.

4. Cry out loud: It is not a silly thing to cry when you are stressed under anxiety. Crying is an emotional outburst which essentially relieves the stress due to anxiety and lets you control the emotional disturbed state of mind.

5. Good sleep: Sleep is necessary for both mental and physical rest. You need to overcome from the fatigue of routine works, stressful events, peer factor, etc. Catching the essential 8 hour sleep is a great way to overcome anxiety issues.

6. Don’t be conscious: Anxiety is a common factor among all your peers. You are not the only one coping with anxiety stress. So, take it light. Relax and don’t be conscious about your anxiety problems. Consider them to be temporary.

7. Be confident: Losing confidence under the stress due to anxiety can be even more disastrous. The effects will never be better. So be confident about whatever you do, whether right or wrong. Every person learns from his own activities. Whether right or wrong, everything will give you a lesson. So you will never be a loser, you will win a lesson.

8. Don’t feel stupid: Being stressed with anxiety is not abnormal or stupid. Everything is okay with you, and you are not the stupid fellow out there.

9. You are not weak: Anxiety is not a sign of weakness. You can rather make it your strength. Fight it back and keep your energy and enthusiasm high.

10. Anxiety is temporary: As you move ahead of the adolescent period, anxiety will faint. You will be more confident and matured, able to tackle anxiety. So consider it to be an affair of a few years. 

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. The duty of your mind is to think. You cannot control your mind's thinking. Once you just leave your mind without diversion, it always ends up in negative territory. Over thinking leads to obsession, self talking and laziness. But certainly you can divert your thinking. You can make your mind to be always positive by engaging in creative activities, hobbies, games and passionate towards whatever you do. Thereby you can reduce your stress and tension also. Once you can do this, loss of proper sleep and stress also can be made normal. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

I. Am. Addicted of smoking marijuana. What are the effects that a body have if smoked regularly?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Not much is known about its entertainment value or benefits. There is a lot of hype by those who want to legitimize it and those who love it: there is a bias because of their selfish motives. The antagonists on the other hand willfully propagate the dangers, sometimes without substantiated reasons to dissuade its use. If you know it is harmful why would you want to play with it. The obsession and compulsive use is when you become addicted to the substance. Now we all spoke the same language: we can stop whenever we want, it is not addictive, it is fun after all, there are so many medical benefits etc. All meant to justify the consumption. There are so many other healthy ways to be creative or to stimulate the creativity in you; and there are so many ways to ‘open’ your mind. Why choose the easy way out when it is a chemical way out? Just for your information here’s what WebMD has to say: ‘No matter how it gets into your system, it affects almost every organ in your body, and your nervous system and immune system, too. When you smoke pot, your body absorbs THC right away. (If you eat a baked good or another item, it may take much longer for your body to absorb THC, because it has to break down in your stomach before it enters your bloodstream). You may notice changes in your body right after you smoke. The effects usually stop after 3 or 4 hours. Smoking pot can increase your heart rate by as much as two times for up to 3 hours. That’s why some people have a heart attack right after they use marijuana. It can increase bleeding, lower blood pressure, and affect your blood sugar, too. We don’t yet know if marijuana is linked to higher odds of getting lung cancer. But the process does irritate your lungs -- which is why regular pot smokers are more likely to have an ongoing cough and to have lung-related health problems like chest colds and lung infections. Other physical effects of marijuana include: • Dizziness • Shallow breathing • Red eyes and dilated pupils • Dry mouth • Increased appetite • Slowed reaction time (If you drive after using marijuana, your risk of being in a car accident more than doubles.) If you’re a long-time user, you can have physical withdrawal symptoms -- like cravings, irritability, sleeplessness, and less appetite -- when you stop.’ It being a hallucinogen, it can lead to hallucinations and even a phenomenon called ‘cross hallucinations’ i.e. for example, you can see sounds and hear colors!!!

There is no convection between general health, power or memory with masturbation or" hand practice" as you say it. However the irresistible urge that makes you masturbate everyday to get sleep may be a kind of psychological dependence on the act. Inorder to get rid of this you need to follow some suggestions. Find alternative ways and healthier methods of relaxation and inducing sleep like meditation or relaxation exercises before sleep. Eat healthy and light dinner with fruits atleast 1-2 hours before going to bed. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Exercise daily preferably in morning hours only. If you still feel difficult to get out of the habit you may need further treatment and counseling.

I am a 39 years old male. I have got a full body checkup done . All my parameters have come normal except for PCV 56 haemoglobin 18.6 and total RBC as 6.56. I do not have any other symptoms or problems. I am a non smoker. No medication . I drink beer regularly every day around 2 bottles. Are these values anything to be worried about. What should be my course of action. Does it warrant any further tests.

I lost somebody close last month and since then feel very depressed please help me.
It's sad to know that you have someone that is near to you. But one has to become strong to fulfil other responsibilities. To relieve your depression, you must take some strong and positive steps. Like taking a walk in morning or evening for at least 30 minutes. Drink water and natural juices and buttermilk ice tea for 4-5 times a day. Eat fruits and vegetables more. You can take homoeopathic medicines like natrum mur 1m wkly once. Keep in touch.

A friend (in her early 30's)is going through a post trauma of her divorce. She has lost her interest in life. How to council her, please suggest?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Divorce is very painful and difficult. If there was any abuse, it will be even more hurtful. But the earlier she deals with that pain, the earlier will she get out of it. Please make her talk about the marriage until she purges herself of all the negativity. Let her use her own language to describe it, and let her talk extensively. When you are able to spare time, take her out and let her relate to others and the world around her. Gradually she will come out of it. If she broods over the divorce, withdraws, or is unwilling to talk, she could get into more problems. When listening to her, reserve your judgment, and just be a good listener. Occasionally, empathize with her and show a lot of understanding. The worse regret in a divorce is when the person realizes that there was something more that could have been done, but was left without adequate pursuit. This thinking usually follows later when it is too late. If that is the case, she will need to be consoled and know that both of them were responsible but that it is too late. Life has to go on and she has to move on. If she is working, it will be a lot easier, if she attends to her job. Tell her not to meet too many people who knew the couple well, and definitely she should not indulge in bringing out dirty linen. Help her understand the lessons to be learned and the role she played in this downfall. That is extremely important for her recovery.

Got an information on depression. Also attended a quiz on it. So, is it possible to check depression of an individual just by observing any of the symptoms? If yes, how can an individual can get out of it? Are there any natural ways for an individual to get out of depression without the need of medication or consultation?

The word depressed is a common everyday word. People might say" i'm depressed" when in fact they mean" i'm fed up because i've had a row, or failed an exam, or lost my job" etc. These ups and downs of life are common and normal. Most people recover quite quickly. With true depression, you have a low mood and other symptoms each day for at least two weeks The common symptoms are (few might be present in a person with depression) Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort Changes in appetite — often reduced appetite and weight loss, but increased cravings for food and weight gain in some people Anxiety, agitation or restlessness Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or blaming yourself for things that aren't your responsibility Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches consult a psychiatrist and get evaluated.

I am a 25 years lady got married at the age 18. From then up to now I and my husband relationship is not good, he always says your mind is not matured and you don't know how to cook so he hates me . Is my problem will be cured by counseling session. I do have many complaints with him. I can attend only on Sunday. Will I get the appointment on sunday

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
I think that your husband is not being fair with you. Maturity and cooking are not connected, and even so it is not reason enough for him to hate you. Since this is becoming serious, you must seek the help of a marriage counselor soon. I suppose you are aware that, ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’! Cooking good food can quite satiate a man that he is happy and content. Now it has been 7 years since you are married and I think that that is good time to learn or improve your culinary skills. If not do attend some cookery classes or buy some books that can help you do better. If you have not tried to improve your skills, I can understand that your husband is upset though not enough to hate you. Ask your mom or neighbors or friends for their favorite dishes and serve up some mouth-watering food and see what happens. Since you mention that you have a lot of complaints about your husband, there may be other issues that are bothering him and you, and he may be using this as an excuse to blame you. There are counselors who work on Sundays too and you can avail of their services to correct the problems confronting your relationship soon.

Committing or trying to commit suicide is not a way of showing our importance in others' lives. I can completely understand the level of stress you are going through, but there is always a better way of handling it. I sincerely feel that your depressive symptoms, self harm thoughts and being overweight could be a part of hormonal imbalance. So I would advise you to do a complete hormonal profile including thyroid hormones, serum dhea levels, serum testosterone levels etc. Consult a gynecologist to rule out pcod if you continue to feel depressed and have feelings of hopelessness nad worthlessness, I would recommend you to visit a psychiatrist personally and start treatment and counselling. Depression is treatable so are hormonal problem. I am sure you will feel much better after treatments.

Dear Lybrate user. I can understand. Loosing someone dear and near causes grief. Grief leads to disappointment. Grief related disappointment manifests symptoms as in the case of depression. But disappointment symptoms are far shorter in duration than depression. These symptoms will vanish in some days or weeks. Don’t worry. Physical exercise, outdoor games, entertainment, hobbies etc could help you divert your attention. I suggest cognitive therapy. Take care.

Because of your tension. You are unable to solve your problem. Stress it is also cause of obesity. So better to avoid tension. Relax yourself. Do not think excessively about fat. It cannt be solved in few days. It takes months up to that wait. Do not irritate. Feel comfortable. Past what happened leave it. Concentrate on present. Better to eat regularly. Do some exercises. Feel always relaxed feel comfortable. Be share your personal feelings with friends and family members. Be happy it will reduce your tension. Do not think too much about fat. It reduces slowly ok all the best.

How can I quit smoking? I am a chain smoker since 2012. Are there any ayurvedic medicine to help me ito quit smoking. I am very much worried.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Best age to stop smoking is before 40 ,In fact do not start all Only by using strong will power and avoiding all situations where you feel like smoking, chewing tobacco or drinking or using drugs/ weed, avoiding friends who smoke and diverting mind by reading or chewing a gum, like NICORETTE and taking a walk when you crave for a smoke can all help. You can chew Nicorette gum which is nicotine replacement. There are medicines available. Which can be prescribed if asked personally Cigarette smoking is a leading preventable cause of mortality. It kills more than 60 lakh people worldwide every year. More than 50% of regular smokers would invariably die from tobacco-related illnesses which includes heart attack, cancer or asthmatic lung diseases. Best age to stop smoking is before 40.
