Dear lybrate user, it appears to me that you did not get enough respect and appreciation from your loved ones while growing up. Presently you are searching for gratification from masturbation. Masturbation is healthy when done to relieve intense sexual urge. But if you are doing this as a habit, then it will be harmful for you. Please contact a counsellor who will help you have higher self esteem and confidence. Once you gain that you will not have social anxiety and depression. You also will be able to better control on your mind. Good luck.

I have 19 years old sometimes am feeling so angry with every person. What should i do?

Dear Lybrate user, 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. Take care.

My wife was went to her parents home before 4 months bcoz my job loss. She come before 15 days but her behavior has changed. She has concerns with my current job salary. I found some call recordings which she was talking with her mother. Her mother guiding her not to cooperate. She using abuse language towards me and my family. She is giving threat and tell my wife to look out with me after when we give birth to a baby. She told not to roam with me and not to believe on me. So I am mentally stressed.

I think that she is concerned about the future of her daughter, especially if you have lost your job. It seems you have not been responsible to both be unable to keep a job and in the middle of that to have a kid too. I guess that anyone will be worried. Even if your MIL has instructed your wife, you have to develop a relationship of trust with her and give her assurances that you will be responsible. If she still gives you trouble then meet with a marriage counselor and get some help. If the counselor confronts her​ mother's influence that will be more effective and acceptable.

Suffering from health related phobias anxiety panic attack high b.P loss of confidence. Suggest a remedy ?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
You have a high level of fear that is causing you all this stress and its related problems. Work with a counselor to deal with your fear and you will feel a lot better. In the meantime do permissible exercises every day, and learn Yoga and meditation. Go for a stress management course, and learn to handle fear by expressing your feeling. Deep breathing will definitely help to calm you down. Switch over to a low sodium salt. In the South it is called ?Induppu? and is very effective to lower your BP. Sleep well, eat healthily with a lot of fiber in your diet. If you talk about your phobias, you will discover that they are nothing but an exaggeration of a normal stimulus, which does not warrant such a response. The stress is then causing the BP to rise.

The symptoms you describe are more likely to be associated with altered mood states due to stress n anxiety. Irritability is just an outward manifestation of prevailing unrest in mind. You need to go down and visit a psychiatrist of your choice to get medical and psychological help. Believe me. You ll feel much different and positive.

I have done something wrong with money and now the news is spread to my parents. They are reacting hard what shall I do now.

M.S. Counselling and Psychotherapy
Psychologist, Bangalore
You are very young, and obviously did not expect something will go wrong like this. I can imagine you to be in shock. You also might be feeling angry and hopeless. I guess, you did not have any bad intentions, and it is a pure mistake of judgement on your part. I can understand your parents' anger. They are angry for two things - first is their hard earned money is lost and second thing is they might be feeling betrayed by you, because you did not tell them about this, earlier. Now, for you - you need to understand that there are natural consequences for everything. So, if you have done something wrong without your parents' knowledge you need to know that the natural consequence would be their anger and loss of trust. And you need to face that. At the same time, they need to understand that at your age, because of lack of experience, such things happen. Hence, they should not be very strict or hard with you. Presently, you may explain to them, what you were thinking and expecting, when you indulged with their money. You need to make them understand, what did you expect to happen and what were your intentions. Then ask for forgivance and at the same time assure them of two things - one is how would you like to earn back that money (have some concrete plans) and how can they have faith in you again. If you are genuinely feeling sorry for what has happened and if you talk to your parents openly, citing your mistake of judgement and commitment to work hard in furture and not to lose their faith again, they will accept you with your mistake. Give them some time. For you, you need to know that you are very young and you need to be cautious in future. At the same time, you are a normal human being. And it is human to make mistakes. Allow yourself to accept this as a mistake and don't keep blaming yourself all the time. Learn from this experience. The bond you have shared with your parents, till now, will help you to come out of this. Be genuine and truthful. Take care.

How to Stop Mild Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour

FIPS, PGDMLS, DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
How to Stop Mild Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour

Obsessive compulsive behaviour is form of anxiety disorder in which unreasonable thoughts and fears, which are obsessions that lead one to do repetitive compulsive behaviour. Root causes of obsessive compulsiveness are complex and often deep seated. The underlying emotional states may include the fear of unknown, not being in control, negative outcomes, failure, rejection, shame, annihilation or embarrassment

You can eliminate mild obsessive compulsion easily, whereas, severe obsessive compulsiveness, require support of medical and mental health professionals.

When you start pondering or obsessing over an activity, you must try to stop the negative pattern, and provide control and security. A good anchor code stops an obsessive thought pattern and provides fact-based security for new action. One can get it under control and recover from it, however at the present, there is no cure. It is a potential that will always be there in the background, even when one's life is no longer affected by it.

The treatment for obsessive compulsive behaviour depends on the how much the condition is affecting the daily life of the person. There are two main treatments, firstly cognitive behavioural therapy, which involves graded exposure and response prevention and the second being medication. The cognitive behaviour therapy emboldens one to face one's fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without neutralising them with compulsions. In second case, treatment is by medication to control one's symptoms by altering the balance of chemicals in brain.

Obsessive compulsive behaviour that has a relatively minor impact on one's daily life is usually treated with a short course of cognitive behavioural therapy. Cognitive behavioural therapy involves exposure and response prevention that is used to help people with all severities. People with mild to moderate behaviour usually need about 10 hours of therapist treatment, combined with exercises to be done at home between sessions. Those with moderate to severe symptoms may need a more intensive course of therapy that lasts longer than 10 hours.

During the sessions, one works with therapist to break down the problems into their separate parts like physical feelings, thoughts and actions. The therapist encourages you to face your fear and let the obsessive thoughts occur without putting them right. It requires motivation and one should start with situations that cause the least anxiety first. These exposure exercises need to take place many times a day, and need to be done for one to two hours without engaging in compulsions to undo them. People with Obsessive compulsive behaviour find that when they confront their anxiety without carrying the compulsion, the anxiety goes away. Each time, the chances of anxiety reduces and last for a shorter period of time. 

Once you have one exposure task, you can move on to a more difficult task, until you have overcome all of the situations that make you anxious.  It is important to remember it can take several months before a treatment has a noticeable effect. It is extremely vital to remember that no one is perfect, nor can anyone recover perfectly.  Even in well maintained recoveries, people can occasionally mess up and forget what they are supposed to be doing.

Hi lybrate-user! Your suffering is due to some kind of internal pressure and of course you are right. You can undergo psychotherapy and counselling for the same. You can actually share your problem, bcoz the Psychologist will keep your problems completely confidential, bcoz their most important aim is to solve your problem and help you lead happy and peaceful life. Only a Psychologist or a Psychiatrist by profession can help you overcome your problem related to mental and emotional disturbances and not other doctors. If you need to consult a local Psychologist or Psychiatrist or with me online definitely you can, so that you can completely overcome this problem. Take care. With regards, Psy. MSV.

I have a phobia which scare me to get into the enclosed places such as Lift, metro rail and closed room if some lock from outside. When i lock from inside there is no problem. I have cervical problem also. Please guide me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Phobias are fear-based problems where you exaggerate the stimulus to very frightful proportions. You have very high level of fear which you are not dealing with properly. You will need to meet with a counselor to identify that and find ways to counter it effectively. Now because of that fear you explain it rather clearly that if you are in control, the phobia is less: like closing the door from inside gives you control, whereas if it is shut from the outside you have no control. As a result you may have control issues too. The cervical problem could be stress induced - all connected to the scare. Fear is such a common human trait that there have been special schools devoted to the study and understanding of it. You are not alone but do reach out and resolve this soon for you to enjoy a normal and peaceful life.

You may try some abdominal exercises but such selective removal of weight is not possible without surgery and that too if needed. Your weight is okay, just relax, like and love yourself, develop some hobbies, take good nutritious balanced diet, do some routine exercise and walking. If still unhappy meet an expert. You may consult me.

Ways to Deal With Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Ways to Deal With Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a disorder that causes anxiety. It is also called as anxiety disorder. The main characteristics of this disorder are uncontrollable, unpleasant thoughts, which are continuing. OCD causes the mind to get stuck on a specific thought or inclination. For instance, you may repeat a task forty times to ensure that it has been done properly. You will not be able to get it out of your mind. OCD is characterized by obsessive thoughts and compulsive behavior patterns.

Some obsessive thoughts include:

  1. The fear of being defiled by germs or soil and also of contaminating others.
  2. The fear of losing control and hurting yourself or others.
  3. Having sexual or brutal thoughts on the mind.
  4. Extreme focus and devotion to religion and religious activities.
  5. A sense of fear of losing or not having things you need.
  6. Having the assumption that everything would go fine.
  7. The person will become very superstitious.

Some compulsive behavior patterns include:

  1. Inordinate double checking on things like locks, apparatuses and switches.
  2. Over and over monitoring of friends and family to ensure they're safe.
  3. Counting in the head, mumbling nonsense words without meaning.
  4. Devoting a lot of time for washing and cleaning.
  5. Praying without reason and taking part in religious ceremonies.
  6. Accumulating junk material.

Here are some common ways to deal with OCD:

  1. Regular exercise: Exercise is the best natural remedy to prevent anxiety, which leads to OCD. Exercise checks your OCD  symptoms. It makes your nerves stronger and hence you can focus your mind out of obsessive thoughts by yourself, when they arrive. Get at least thirty minutes of exercise regularly.
  2. Connect with friends and family: Social isolation is one of the common early symptoms of OCD. Social isolation can lead to OCD as well. Therefore, you must always stay connected to your friends and family so that you never get lonely and anti-social. Share everything with family.
  3. Sleep sufficiently: Lack of sleep or troubled sleep may lead to anxiety disorders. You need to sleep enough to be away from obsessive thoughts.
  4. Perform relaxation techniques: Simple practices like yoga, meditation, pranayama  help you grow spiritually, relax your mind and keeps OCD away from you.
  5. Tackle your fears: Instead of avoiding fearful thoughts, let them flow and tackle them face to face. This will help you overcome the fear. Adopt measures so that you can focus on other things and ignore the obsessive thoughts. Distract yourself away from the obsession.

OCD is a harmful disorder, and you should take all measures possible to keep away from it.
