I was shocked to experience the symptoms of stress. she is not just friendly, but also is very motivating. the complete process of counselling and stress management was so painless and quick, and i am so relieved that I chose to consult him. I must say the hygiene was maintained very nicely in the Metro MAS Multispeciality Hospital. Dr Sunita Panday has so much knowledge that for everything my family takes her reference. Someone from the office, referred us that Sunita Panday. the interior of the Metro MAS Multispeciality Hospital was no nicely done, it was so clean. Thanks to him I am totally satisfied with the results of counselling and stress management.

Fear, anxiety and stress can often lead humans to either escape the situation or fight it by defending themselves. But there are other behaviours that humans turn to when they are under stress. This is not unnatural at all; we all face it at some point in time. What’s more, even dogs revert to the four Fs when under stress. Let us find out what are they and also how to deal with them.
- Fight: Fighting back is the natural reaction, which we turn to when we want to defend ourselves. Shouting at someone might give you some confidence for the time being. But again, it is not a permanent solution. We might end up apologising for our behaviour later but do nothing to address the situation that brought about that kind of behaviour.
- Flight: This is the escape mode that we turn to when we want to avoid a certain person or scenario, that might lead to stress. However, it must be remembered that, fleeing stress will help in fixing it temporarily. But since the situation remains unchanged, it will keep happening again and again.
- Freeze: For some people, the shock is so overwhelming that it becomes difficult for them to react at all. They simply freeze. The person goes into the panic mode and fails to move or say anything.
- Fool around: This option seems to be not a very bad idea in times of stress and anxiety depending on exactly what you mean by fooling around. If you can crack a joke at a tensed situation and lighten the mood, it helps immensely. However, if your idea of fooling around is to avoid talking about the situation and instead have fun, talk about other silly things, then it might not be a good idea.
Dealing with stress is not easy, but if you have realised the cause for your stress, your problem is half solved. If it is something you can change, then start working on it. If not, then it is best to let things happen in their own sweet way, while you change your attitude towards it. If you have realised what kind of behaviour your turn to when under stress, it is easier to face the situation. Listen to some of your favourite music, wear clothes that make you feel good and think about the situation and the possible solution later. Don’t let stress get to you, face situations, keep calm and be positive!
I am going into depression situation because of my divorce matter. My husband wants divorce from me in just 1 and half month. I am unable to recover from this situation. This matter largely affect my mind. How should I recover from this situation?
I have question for my friend. He finished 12th std. @ 2015. His aim is to become a doctor. So he dropped a year and prepared for entrance exams. I also joined in the same year. We are not friends at that time. After joining as always I concentrated on my studies. And finally got 333 marks out of 720. But he has not prepared for exams throughout the year since he has got diverting towards love. So he got around 132. We both became friends after that and dropped one more year and studied. Now I got 431. My chances are high to get a MBBS seat in govt. College. But he has got 138. I think its not at all an improvement than last year. But this year he has studied a lot, practised. But he got nervous in exam hall and so he couldn't get it. Now he is planning to drop one more year. I have no confidence, but he is very stubborn that he can study only medicine not any other. His parents also accepted his decision. I have convinced a lot, but no use. So What could he do in this situation? He guarantee me that he would device a plan and he would crack the exam. Should I believe him? You think he could make it? Please I want a good support from you.
My mother is getting treated with schizophrenia, under medication for over 3 years, earlier was treated for depression in Lucknow. The belief of somebody guiding her within is still there like someone is telling when to talk when not to how to do a task where you sit who should sit next to you etc and by doing that thing will be OK. No destructive or self harming activities, also she have developed some facial disorientation like lower lips is more stretched towards left, like incase of facial paralysis. This happened after I got her treated at Nimhans (although renowned hospital but most of the time you need to consult junior doctors). Now consulting at cadbams. Any suggestion of providing her best treatment will be a great help. As this is effecting our entire family.
My dad been treated with alcoholism and depression since last one year. he was taking Stablon 12.5,baclofen 10 ,amizep h 12.5, three times and stresnil 0.5 at night. He was good after 3 months. He was reading books. But most of the time he liked sitting and walking. He developed swelling in legs. He started to complain about pain in hands and legs. Also used to say his mind is not working well. After 6 more months he started reducing his daily doses thinking it may help. I ensured he takes at least 2 weeks to reduce any dose. Then after 2 more months he was confused. Standing for hour or sitting in washroom for hour. Wanted to go outside in midnight. Even if he just came from outside he will again like to go outside. We admitted him to psychiatrist, he was given Etizola plus 5, deven la 50 mg, baclofen 20 mg extended release, monotop 50 mg, genecephal trio in morning and excite plus, desvenlafaxine 100 mg, oliza 5, monotop 50 and felicita tab in night. after 3 months he improved in terms of going out. He go out look around himself and come back. And told us there is no one around him now. When asked he told he was seeing 5 ghost like faces earlier. Before this treatment he used to walk very fast like flying. But after this treatment he got slow. After few more days he again started to go outside. So now we went to a neurologist. He prescribed risperidone 2 mg, trihexyphenidyl 2 mg, lorazepam 2 mg, citicoline 500 mg. It really helped him. He was calm now. He started to respond faster than earlier. Memory improved. But issues still not fixed are - 1. He walk and sit like statue, not able to lift legs too much above ground. And walk straight. 2. Less control while walking specially while coming down from stairs. 3.will fall while sitting on ground and standing from ground. 4. Teary eyes as he don't blink eyes much. 5.face looks swelled. 6. Remember many things accurately but don't remember many things like his birthday. However he may remember something now but may forget when asked after few days. 7. Response is better but still slow when asked something.
Ending one’s life is terrible. But often, instead of analysing the patient’s mental condition at that time, we tend to judge them. The most common cause for suicides is undoubtedly depression. Adverse social or financial conditions often contribute to the mental condition of patients. However, a recent paper published in the journal Neuropsychopharmacology might change the way we think about suicides. Lena Brundin and her co-workers have come to the conclusion in the paper titled “Role of inflammation in suicide: from mechanism to treatment,” that our immune system can trigger off suicidal thoughts and tendencies. Let us find out how.
- There is proof that certain medicines that are used to treat cancer patients can affect the immune responses. This in turn can trigger off suicidal tendencies.
- Certain injuries can lead to brain disorders which are related to inflammatory responses that might be responsible for some changes in behaviour often leading to suicidal thoughts.
- Just like certain medications trigger of suicidal thoughts, there are some that might diminish them like Lithium. It is used to treat bi-polar disorder. What it does is decrease immune related chemicals. Another drug has proved to be very effective in reducing suicidal thoughts and tendencies – Ketamine. Ketamine, like Lithium, has been found to block certain chemicals that are related to immune response.
- Though the whole topic is still under extensive research, it can perhaps be concluded that certain drugs have the ability to lessen suicidal thoughts and depression because they block some chemicals that are related to immunity.
The suicidal mentality is very complex. It requires not just medicines, but counselling, empathy, love and understanding. Often, many patients cannot come out of their depression, resulting in therapy sessions that are fruitless. In those cases, medicines that might reduce the negative thoughts and moods will come handy. It will help the patient initially to deal with the situation and start with a lot of positivity. Every year, almost one million deaths occur due to suicide. Not only does it leave behind survivors who attempt to kill themselves but also broken families that struggle to get over the death. If this research is successful, several people will benefit from it, all over the world. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychologist.
I am suffering from anxiety and thought problems. My problem might sound very stupid and immature but it has been eating my mind badly. I got so much emotionally attached to a girl, that I feel highly obsessed with her. But she happens to be the partner of one of my very close friends. I've never been in a relationship with a girl before. I am not able to sleep from the past fifteen days and keep thinking of her all the time. I never wished this to happen but it just happened. Now, there's a sudden feeling of depression and heartbreak and it's ruining my life. I am literally not able to do anything productive or enjoy healthfully with my other friends. PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME!
Hello Doctors, I am writing behalf of my cousin, 16 years old. He is a very intelligent student but never hard work. He studied in hostel from 6th to 10th grade. He topped 9.2 points in his 10th grade. He pursued his 11th grade as a day scholar. His parents politely asks him to study with concentration but he never did it. In home, he never tried to study stablely not at least fir few hours. By the force of parents, unwillingly he will sit with books but he keeps playing with the things around him while studying and his mind revolves somewhere. He always tries to kill time. He got 224/470. Just 46%. Academically since years, he is scoring 8-9 points. But now he just passed in 11th. We have asked to open up his views. If he is not interested in Maths, we could put in a different subjects as he wish. But he is not open. He is getting irritated if parents asks him to study. He says that he is studying well but his marks are average in class tests. He says the syllabus is not covered. If he opens up that he couldn't understand the classes, we could arrange special tuitions and make him understand. But he won't show interest to go to turions. Now he is telling that we would like to g back to hostel. According to his wish parents made him join in hostel. Parents are really bothered about his behavior. Please suggest how to deal with this kind of a person.

My b 12 is 236 it is normal or not some time I feel nervous I can't talk and I feel anxiety when I drive the car problem start.
I have been friends with this girl since October 2013. We got so close at that time and she even said that she doesn't want to loose me and would not make such things happen to loose me. That closeness or that bond between us ceased in May 2014. So We never kept in touch till the last week of November 3014. In between that I did call her up to wish her as it was her birthday. She sounded normal. But within that gap (May to November 2014) whenever I tried calling her or tried testing her she would never reply. So in the last week of November I called her with my friend's number because she wouldn't answer my call if I'd call hef with my number. So we spoke on the phone but that bond which was there back then is no longer there. So I tried my best talking to her in order for me to bring the old us. But that didn't really work out. So I told her that I'm coming over to her place to meet her because she's leaving soon for the winter vacations to which she agreed. We met. And when we met I feel like that old bond was still there but it's not upto that point. Since then we've always communicated n kept in touch till date. Her friends even asked me whether I'm in love with her or not so my reply to them was positive. They told me that she knows that I love her and she's happy that I didn't make any proposal yet because she feels like it's good and that wouldn't disturb our studies. Her friends even said that she's into me so why didn't I propose her? And right now I feel like that bond we had back then is pumping again. So to me I really want her to be a part of my life n spend my lifetime with her. But my problem is the proposal part. I don't know where/when/how to start moreover I don't want to loose her ever again. Please help.
Agoraphobia can be defined as the fear of being in a situation from which one cannot escape or a situation that humiliates the person. This causes people to avoid situations that they anticipate to be humiliating. Such a situation makes the person feel trapped and helpless. Everyday situations like standing in a queue, getting into an elevator, using public transport etc. can trigger Agoraphobia.
Agoraphobia affects more women than men. It usually affects people under the age of 35, but can sometimes affect older people as well. Having a relative in the immediate family circle that suffers from this condition can also increase a person's risk of suffering from it as well. Additionally, the death of a parent or loved one or domestic abuse could also trigger such behavior. Depression and alcohol or drug abuse could also increase a person's risk of suffering from this psychological disorder.
This phobia usually develops after a person experiences panic attacks or goes through an extremely stressful experience. Some typical symptoms of Agoraphobia include:
- The fear of being alone
- Fear of crowded places
- Fear of being in locked places from where you cannot escape
- Fear of losing control of one's actions
- Inability to leave the house alone
- Being overly dependent on others
You may also experience symptoms similar to those of a panic attack, such as excessive sweating, breathing difficulty, dizziness, diarrhea and chest pain.
An in depth interview with a counselor or doctor can help diagnose such a condition. A physical examination can also help rule out other health conditions that could be triggering such a reaction. To be diagnosed with Agoraphobia the patient needs to present at least two of the below symptoms:
- Severe fear of public transportation
- Fear of being in an open space such as a parking lot or mall
- Fear of being in closed spaces such as movie halls or elevators
- Fear of standing in line
- Fear of being in a crowd
- Fear of leaving home alone
Treatment for such a condition involves medication and psychotherapy. Anti depressants and anti anxiety medications are commonly used to treat such disorders. There are a number of different types of such medication and you may need to experiment with them before finding one that suits you. Psychotherapy or talk therapy focuses on cognitive behavioral therapy that reduces anxiety symptoms and teaches patients how to deal with fears. If you fear leaving the home alone, you could take someone along with you or consult a therapist who can offer you telephonic advice, through email or meet you at your home.

Kids also get affected. Please suggest how her drive/libido can be improved to bring back married life on track again.

I have a depression related problem. I am getting treatment since April 2016 in Rewari. Now I think that I am fine but doctor says that I still have some signs of depression. Will you please tell me that what are the symptoms of depression.
Depression is an addictive state, which is hard to get rid of. Everybody who suffers from it encounters it in an unexpected way, yet we all agree that it can be a major well-being issue. It makes a person miserable, disappointed, restless or numb for long and tedious timeframes, and is debilitating, particularly when you can't demonstrate your feelings and worries to anybody. It can meddle with your productivity and can become a concern not only in workplaces, but also in social circles.
So here's how to deal with a friend or family member in a depressed state of mind:
- Never Say 'You're Too Much': When someone with depression is told "you're too much," particularly by somebody near them, it can send them spiralling into blame and nervousness and bitterness. Being encouraging and empowering is likewise useful.
- Try not to Shame People for Being Negative: Dejection changes the world into a scene of pessimism. Discouraged individuals don't just focus on the negatives, but they also disregard the positives.
- Do Understand That Depression Doesn't Mean "Trouble": Melancholy is a condition with an assortment of side effects like exhaustion, confused mind state and rest issues. These are all side effects of melancholy. Crabbiness is an exceptionally basic side effect, which once in a while is encountered by many individuals, and can lead to an expanded sensitivity. Normally, it's difficult to be sympathetic with someone who is behaving grumpily. But you need to make a conscious effort to still see the positive in depressed individuals and lead them to hope.
- Do Validate: Approval can help manage a depressed state, and can wean a friend or family member out of depression. Remember that someone with dejection is not living in the same universe as you. The laws that oversee your universe don't exist in theirs.
Depressed individuals require your understanding, your empathy, and your affection, considerably more when they are having a troublesome day, week or month. It is hard, but possible. Discouraged individuals value a positive backing in particular. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a psychiatrist.
Panic attacks can debilitate a person greatly. The panic or anxiety attacks can be extremely powerful and intense, whereby a person starts hallucinating. The level of hallucination can vary depending on the severity of the attack. Such people often hallucinate about something bad or catastrophic striking them. They lose self-composure. In extreme cases, they cut themselves off from the outside world and recoil into their safe zone (Agoraphobia).
Panic attacks, should, by no means, be confused with depression. These attacks can be essentially divided into three phases; the start phase, it then reaches the pinnacle or the zenith, before sliding down (fades away). The duration of a panic attack can vary from long to very long periods. The whole experience can leave a person depressed, traumatized and drained out (physically and emotionally). A timely medical assistance can prove to be extremely fruitful.
Panic attacks- its causative, signs and symptoms
A panic attack, can, indeed, come out of the blue (unexpectedly). Extreme emotional turmoil or anxiety can trigger such an attack. An over-excited nervous system might turn out to be the wrecker in chief, throwing life in jeopardy. A person might be unprepared to deal with such a situation. Though extremely difficult, the best thing would be to try and relax. The attack is just an extreme state of mind, an abstract feeling that can never come true. It will pass off soon. Panicking will only pile onto your agony. Identifying the associated symptoms can prove to be effective.
Some of the important symptoms associated with Panic attacks include:
- A feeling of breathlessness, suffocation and dizziness.
- The palms appear to be sweaty.
- A person may complain of uneasiness or chest pain.
- Increased palpitations are quite common during panic attacks.
- A person might experience severe chills or heat flushes.
- Twitching and trembling of the muscles are often observed during the attacks.
- An intense fear of death or going insane grips the person completely.
- Hands, legs, arms begin to tingle.
- During anxiety attacks, a person loses the reasoning ability.
Few short-term behavioural therapies can be of great help. Meditation, yoga and certain breathing practices can effectively ward off physical and mental fatigue. CBT or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is a popular technique used to deal with panic attacks. This technique primarily emphasizes on the present conditions and factors resulting in panic and ways to minimize or completely eliminate the attacks.
Anger is an emotion found in every human being. There is nothing wrong with being angry. However, if it gets out of hand there might be serious consequences. Knowing a few things about anger management might help the next time you are struggling to manage anger.
The Wrong Approach
Before knowing, what are the right things to do, it is necessary to know what doesn’t work well. This will give a better insight on anger management.
- Often, we think suppressing anger might be the right thing to do. But, it is not. Trying not to react to a situation and keeping it under wraps, might affect your health and can even be the root cause of heart disease. However, suppressing it often lessens the intensity of the anger.
- Just like suppressing it is not a good idea, venting it out completely is not the right approach as well. Venting might help you to cool down faster later on, but initially, it might hurt the other person and also have a negative impact on health. Venting anger occasionally will also make the person aggressive in nature.
- Thinking or using words like always, never, should/shouldn’t, must/mustn’t do not usually help. Thinking about ‘he should never talk to me like that’ or ‘they are always being unfair to me’, brings about negativity and doesn’t help in calming down.
The Right Approach
- Counting to 10, the age old approach to anger management often helps in cooling down and giving a clear perspective. When we are angry, we end up saying and doing things we don’t mean to. Counting gives us some time and helps us calm down a bit.
- Breathe slowly when you are angry, say experts. Instead of talking or reacting to the situation, just breathe in and out slowly. When you breathe out more, your body will calm down and make you relax.
- Talk to someone who understands you when you are angry. Instead of venting out or suppressing it, talk it out with a friend or a family member. Tell them your feelings and why you are angry. This will help you a lot in relaxing. It works as a counselling session.
- To manage anger, in the long run, one should always lead a healthy lifestyle. It means not just having a healthy diet, but also having proper sleep, not being stressed about anything, doing exercise, etc.
- Doing something creative often takes your mind away from angry feelings. Join a dance class, an art workshop, start keeping a journal, it will definitely help in the long run.
- Leave the place immediately for few moments and drink water slowly when angry. Don't prolong the anger, come back and start conversation normally. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.
