I am continuously working for 2 days in a hectic mode. How to relieve my stress?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
Pediatrician,
I am continuously working for 2 days in a hectic mode. How to relieve my stress?
Tips for fitting relaxation techniques into your life If possible, schedule a set time to practice each day. Set aside one or two periods each day. You may find that it?s easier to stick with your practice if you do it first thing in the morning, before other tasks and responsibilities get in the way. Practice relaxation techniques while you?re doing other things. Meditate while commuting to work on a bus or train, or waiting for a dentist appointment. Try deep breathing while you?re doing housework or mowing the lawn. Mindfulness walking can be done while exercising your dog, walking to your car, or climbing the stairs at work instead of using the elevator. Once you?ve learned techniques such as tai chi, you can practice them in your office or in the park at lunchtime. If you exercise, improve the relaxation benefits by adopting mindfulness. Instead of zoning out or staring at a TV as you exercise, try focusing your attention on your body. If you?re resistance training, for example, focus on coordinating your breathing with your movements and pay attention to how your body feels as you raise and lower the weights. Avoid practicing when you?re sleepy. These techniques can relax you so much that they can make you very sleepy, especially if it?s close to bedtime. You will get the most benefit if you practice when you?re fully awake and alert. Do not practice after eating a heavy meal or while using drugs, tobacco, or alcohol. Expect ups and downs. Don?t be discouraged if you skip a few days or even a few weeks. It happens. Just get started again and slowly build up to your old momentum.

You should visit your Eye specialist and get your eyes checked. Do wear glasses of 0-power. DO not study in dim-light. Try to take proper sleep. Late night studying will not be helpful based on your condition.

I have bad breath in mouth. I smoke frequently. Please help me with this problem.
Bad breath is either due to poor oral hygeine, a dry mouth or sometimes due to other health problems. Brush twice daily using proper brushes and brushing technique, Drink plenty of water and eat healthy. Smoking causes bad breath also and a plethora of other problems. Visit your doctor for a check up to find out whats causing bad breath.

He is in railways so remains in Train because of his running duty schedule. He does this so that we have less fights. He drinks a lot. Whenever he is here at home he only drinks n watches TV. I know he has no affair out n he loves me a lot. But he never shows. He abuses me too, shouts on me which I can't bear. Then I also shout n then arguments start. I am also a working lady. On job, I remain happy with my school students n colleague friends. Bt as soon I come home everything changes. We don't spend time with each other at all. We don't talk much except arguments n some daily routine talks like khane me kya banau, Chai banana etc. That's it. I try to save my marriage our relationship but nothing is working out. What should I do I don't know. Fact is this also that we can't live without each other bt we don't live peacefully also. We don't have a normal married life.

How to Deal With a Patient Suffering From Asperger's Syndrome?

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How to Deal With a Patient Suffering From Asperger's Syndrome?

Asperger's Syndrome or Asperger's Disorder is a neurotypical condition that affects the development of the child the effects of which continue into adulthood. This condition typically shows up as difficulties faced by the patient when it comes to social interactions as well as other nonverbal means of communication. It should not be confused with autism as the patient has no speech and cognitive development delay. 

Asperger's syndrome can show up as restricted and repetitive patterns in the behaviour of the patient. It lies at the higher end of the autism spectrum and the signs are usually less obvious.

Here are a few ways with which you can effectively deal with someone who is suffering from this disorder:

  1. Routine: The patient suffering from this condition will need a certain kind of stability as it is very difficult to predict what will happen in the near future or to even plan for it. The best way to tackle this scenario is with the help of a proper routine that can help the patient achieve some kind of control over the situation surrounding him or her so that he or she is better equipped and more capable of handling normal functioning and social situations as well.
  2. Information: It is also a good idea to help these patients in looking at and in processing information. While normal people may easily be able to discard insignificant or unimportant information, the brain of the patient suffering from asperger's syndrome does not allow him or her to do so. In many cases, the patient is not able to filter the important and the unimportant information. This can debilitate many functions. So, it is important to be present to help the patient in making decisions and processing information that is actually relevant to his or her functioning.
  3. Learning: One of the most crucial things to remember with the Asperger's patient is that they tend to understand and process things when they have a visual presentation rather than being told verbally. So showing them things practically in the proper manner is the right way to help them learn and process situations in a correct way. This will prevent them from doing things in the same old way even when their brains tell them that it will lead to wrong results.
  4. Physical Abilities: Poor motor skills as well as lack of proper organisation skills are traits that usually characterise these patients. It is important to make them aware of this during games and activities that require management as well as use of social skills. For example, football and other such activities can be introduced in the routine. This will promote interaction with the team in order to play and enjoy the game.

I am 26 years old and i'm so aggressive. I hate everyone my family & boyfriend I told them reason why I hate them they are ignored my each and every world they act like normal. I love them too much but they ignore me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have told everybody the reason for your anger except me! you need to know why you are so angry. Is it from your family and was it from early childhood? there could be a lot of happenings in childhood and even from prenatal days that you are carrying in this anger and are not able to explain it. Meet with a counselor for your emotions and work with that person to identify the origin of the feeling and sort it out soon. You may lose your boyfriend in the bargain and not know why that happened. There is definitely a reason for this emotion, and you should not go around throwing tantrums without knowing why. If you do vigorous exercise every day, you could expend the energy of anger and feel less volatile and then perhaps you may be more sensible. Try it and see. It always works. Now if you discover the reason and it has to do with your parents, then learn to forgive them for your own sake and life will take a different turn for sure. If you are a spiritual person, I strongly recommend that you hand over this anger to god and you will be pleasantly surprised as to how good it feels after that.

This is a good sign of an emotion that has not been expressed and is now seeking an outlet. Meet with a counselor immediately especially that you are in late adolescence and it is a final chance to redeem yourself of this grief. Now for your memory enhancement: I suspect that the adolescent issues with regard to hormones may be affecting your ability to concentrate and remember. When the hormones play up, it lasts for a period of close to two years and during that time you could be influenced by three signs directly impacted by the chemical: you will tend to become aggressive and rebellious, you will become sexually active, and you will have acne and pimple problems. The hormonal imbalances may not only impact your memory because of the chemical but also bring some distractions that come with it. But you may work on the following even if the hormones kick in: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind. With regard to memory, it is very important that your brain and body is ideally rested to be able to recall whatever is required, rather comfortably. Puzzles pose problems to the brain that help it to use new pathways and neurons, which give the brain considerable exercise. It taxes the left brain to use logic to solve the myriad possibilities which other activities do not stimulate. Crosswords are excellent for vocabulary learning and use. Jigsaws and Rubik cube stimulate different permutations to finally settle on the most likely one. Picture completion and anagrams help approach problem solving from several angles. Do Sudoku, and memory co-relation activities and skills. Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber (whole grains, fruits and vegetables), nuts, avocado, eat dark chocolate, consume less of fat and use olive oil instead, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. You need to check out if you are stronger visual or auditory. The visual is a better mode than the auditory. However, if you combine the two modes, you will get the best concentration. Have a special place of learning, which should be well lit, with soft painted walls, well-ventilated, with no distractions. When you get bored, study by writing. If you repeat learning at least five to seven times, you will apparently remember for a longer time. Sit comfortably but do not slouch. The reading material should be of a fairly large print. Study at small intervals of about 40 minutes and then take a break or change the subject. Short-term memory is a faculty of the left brain, and long-term memory is a feature of the right brain. When people are stressed, they tend to favor the right brain and abandon the left brain, where short-term memory resides. So, it is really very simple: deal with the stress and activate left brain functions. Here are a few suggestions to activate left brain function: 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 callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. There is a new exercise called Super Brain Yoga, which is done by holding the right earlobe with your left thumb and index finger, and the left earlobe with your right hand’s thumb and index finger. In this position you must squat down and rise up and do this for five minutes every day. There are some memory enhancing techniques and study methods that your teacher will be able to guide you with. If your home life is full of distractions and stress, it is likely to affect your memory, adversely. In that case, I suggest that the family goes for counseling too. The following foods do help too: Blueberries, walnuts, turmeric, Spinach, tomatoes, broccoli, acorn squash, green tea, oily fish, boiled egg, turkey, apples, oatmeal, leafy greens, lentils, pumpkin seeds, avocado, cinnamon, thyme, sunflower seeds, and red wine. Avoid sugar and junk food.

Your Pain is Chronic if it Falls Under These 4 Types of Chronic Pain Disorders!

MD - Anaesthesiology
Anesthesiologist, Delhi
Your Pain is Chronic if it Falls Under These 4 Types of Chronic Pain Disorders!

When is your pain chronic?

Your pain is chronic if it last for more than a period of six months. Chronic pain is a long-term pain whose nature can vary from mild to excruciating, and it may trouble you either continuously or at short and regular intervals. Chronic pain is so dangerous that it does not only cause discomfort and inconvenience but also robs you entirely of your capacity to work for a long time.

Chronic pain can occur in a number of organs of the human body like head, joints, back, shoulders, neck etc. In fact, pain in any part of your body can turn into chronic pain. Here are a few symptoms that can help you identify if what you are going through is, in fact, chronic pain:

- persistent and severe body pain

- burning sensation accompanied by the body pain

- fatigue and sleeplessness

- weak immune system

- stiff and sore joints

The 4 types of chronic pain disorders that you should be aware of are:

1. Nociceptive pain

The pain that affects the soft tissues of the body such as the skin and the muscles or the organs that have sensory nerves present in them is called nociceptive pain. The sensory nerves, known as nociceptors can detect the stimuli of pain and send information to the brain and the spinal cord for interpretation. The pain could be either somatic (originating in the outer body) or visceral (originating in the internal organs).

2. Neuropathic pain

This pain is caused when the nerves stop functioning normally. It is caused due to nerve disturbances that result in pain stimuli being spontaneously transmitted to the brain and spinal cord. If you are suffering from this type of chronic pain disorder, you will feel a sharp, shooting and stabbing pain. Neuropathic pain can also be caused due to the formation of neuroma (abnormal growth of the nerve tissue).

3. Psychogenic pain

The pain that is caused by psychological disorders like depression and anxiety is known as psychogenic pain. Sometimes this pain can be accompanied by physical complications like fatigue, body pain and muscle weakness.

4. Idiopathic pain

The pain that exists even though there is no physical or psychological cause for it is known as idiopathic pain. This pain is more common in people who have suffered from a pre-existing painful disorder. Some common examples of idiopathic pain are fibromyalgia (intense pain all over the body) and tmj disorders (pain in the jaw area).

How to Cope With Erectile Dysfunction and Depression

How to Cope With Erectile Dysfunction and Depression

Depression is considered the common cold of all mental health issues and can strike in varying levels due to causes like pressing circumstances, problems in one's personal life and relationships, hormonal changes and other long term, chronic health conditions. Your intimate relationships are also subject to dejection when physical ailments enter the picture. Erectile dysfunction is one such area that creates depression. This is basically a condition that men suffer from. Due to this condition, a man is not able to get and hold an erection long enough to enjoy the act of sex. This can be caused due to related physical problems as well as stress. It can also lead to depression and problems in one's relationship due to anger, frustration, hopelessness and sadness. Here are a few ways to deal with depression caused due to erectile dysfunction.

  1. Recognising the Symptoms: The very first thing to do is to come out of denial and recognise the symptoms that are caused by this kind of depression. Usually, any long term or chronic problem can lead a person to look at himself or herself as a hopeless case. This can cause symptoms like dejection, a negative attitude towards everything and sudden outbursts of anger and frustration which may crop up in other areas of the patient's life. Since this is an intimate problem that one cannot discuss with everyone, the problem of depression gets all the more challenging. In such cases, the best thing to do is to be aware of the symptoms.
  2. Getting help: Simply being aware of the symptoms is not enough that is merely the first step. One will need to go ahead and do something about the symptoms. Visiting a sexologist or a sex therapist is the next step. With the help of therapy and discussions, the patient and the doctor can actually reach the root cause of the issue and help in realigning the attitude and thinking of the patient to come out of stress that is creating the issue, or to deal with medical repercussions of the issue in a more stable manner.
  3. Psychotherapy: One of the foremost methods used by most therapists includes psychotherapy that can help in unravelling the cause and finding a way to cope with the problem in a way that is focussed on discussions.
  4. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: This form of therapy examines all aspects of the person's life and reality so as to find the cause of the problematic behaviour and reprogram the brain of patient with great deliberation.
  5. Antidepressants: While some medications can affect sexual functioning, there are antidepressants that do not have major sexual side effects. Please consult a Psychiatrist and discuss about this option too.

Tackling depression and erectile dysfunction is a matter of striking a fine balance with professional help.

Well you are not much older than a teenager right now and these feelings are okay for your age. The only problem is that you, cannot or rather should not, act on them. You have to learn to moderate these impulses and the more you worry about them the more difficult it will be for you to control your libido. However you cannot walk around with a high libido and a somewhat lost control. Indulging in it is what can cause bother. You must go out and socialize and meet more people and mix around with both sexes. In time you will be able to understand and respect girls and not see them as mere sex objects. You will also respect your sexual feeling and know that it has to be used responsibly. Right now vigorous games and sports will channelize a lot of this energy and reduce the urge. Your focus must be on your studies but not at the neglect of other aspects of our personality. If you like you could attend sex education classes and get a more refined idea of relationships with the opposite sex and relish a wholesome contact with them. Your view right now seems too telescopically directed towards their bodies due to the hormonal influences. There is so much more to do with your life at this current moment that this will distract you no end: time and opportunity can be permanently lost. You can have great times later on after achieving good development in your all round personality. Stay focused on the right priorities. You may feel like you have no control but that is all in your head and a primed body.

I ask something to be done and it's not done then there is always a dissatisfied and worried sad feeling in my mind and this grew so big that I can't even concentrate on important things and forget something and new problems arise due to this besides consulting a doctor can I know any tips that to be followed by me as well as my family?

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Hi Vikranth There is no serious problem you are suffering from and it can be treated with homoeopathy but for that a whole history needs to be taken from you. It is just your sensitiveness towards certain issues or people which is causing problem to you. So dont worry homoeopathic medicine can bring back that confidence and positiveness back in you and reduce any tensions and stress you have because of these. As stress can cause a number of problems other than these. Other than medicine you can divert your mind by learning some new thing like sports or anything that intrests you. It will provide you with confidence and nurture your talent tpp. Takecare

When is it safe to have sex after having a baby? Your wife may be physically able to have sex as soon as 2 weeks after delivery if she had only a small tear or none at all, but most women wait at least 4 to 6 weeks, or until they get the fitness from their health care provider. It all depends on the type of delivery your wife had, how difficult it was, how many stitches she needed, and any complications of pregnancy. There might be a big difference between when a woman is physically able to have sex versus when she feel emotionally ready, and actually want to have sex. The postpartum period is a time of huge changes in her body, her hormones, her lifestyle, her sense of self and her relationship. Lack of sleep, the constant demands of the newborn, her changing body image, and any anxieties about motherhood can have a negative impact on her sexual desire. The right time for you to resume intimacy is, therefore, a very individual decision. Some couples get back to their previous level of sexual activity with few problems, but for most couples this requires some time, adjustment and communication. Even if sex is the last thing on your mind, it is important to nurture the bond with your partner in non-sexual ways to maintain your relationship as a couple, not just as parents. Regarding yet not having pain...you please consult with gynaecologist...Thanks.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You may be under some stress, and I do not know if you are aware of it. Find out what this disturbance is all about and as you address it, memory and concentration will happily return to favor you. Do meet with a counselor, if your stress is too much. In the meantime please follow the suggested guidelines: Daily exercise of at least half an hour is a must. Even if you go to a gym, ask for aerobic and/or callisthenic exercises with whatever else you are doing. A healthy body harbors a healthy mind.
