I have stress problem and I have lots of fear and not going anywhere because of this problem.

I have stress problem and I have lots of fear and not going anywhere because of this problem.
The stress that you feel is not dependent on the stressor: It is entirely dependent on your perception of stress. Change your perception, there is no stress: it’s like looking at a glass half full or half empty. Life is difficult no doubt, as a general rule, but what we do adds to the stress in our response. We add to the stress of life instead of reducing it or learning to deal with it. Many of us follow a policy of avoidance. We cannot do that all of our lives. So the first thing to do is to change your perception. For example, look at it as a challenge that you would like to meet with a positive outlook. See everything as a gift from God to perform as though you are doing it for Him. God never gives us work to do beyond our capacity. Build a good constitution mentally, emotionally and physically to combat stress. Eat healthily, sleep well, and exercise regularly. Talk about your emotions regularly to a good friend every day. Learn stress management techniques, which is all about expressing your feelings in appropriate ways. Do Yoga and meditation. Pray every day to God to give you the strength, and offer your work as a prayer to Him – you will give your best and you will feel so satisfied when you do it well. At work you must learn to delegate much or some of your work to subordinates. If you do not trust, you will find it difficult to delegate. You need to examine if your work is too stressful for various reasons. It is the one place you will be spending the greatest part of your awake life, more than even with your family! This being the case any stress there can take a severe toll: the stress in the work is mostly related to relationships. We are always into relationships and you need to find a very amicable way to interact with people. You cannot avoid people all your life: no man is an island! If it is people related, you will need to examine whether you are the cause or others the cause. If it has to do with workload, then you will need to discuss that with your colleagues first and if they think you are justified, then you will have to take it to the immediate boss. If it is injustice in the work spot, you will need to discuss it with the HR department. If you feel that you are doing more than you can manage or are qualified for, again you can consult the HR department. If you are emotionally distraught, then there may be some work for you to do with a counselor. This is where stress is mostly felt. When you do not express feelings you will land up with stress. Check what feelings you are not dealing with and then tackle that to find relief which is a permanent solution. To resolve it you need to deal with the unexpressed feelings which may have become a habit from childhood. Meet with a counselor and that person will help you process your feelings and find ways to express them once and for all and give you permanent relief. You will see an immediate change for the better.

Dear, I understand that you are worried for his health and immediate treatment. But first he will need to see a psychiatrist and a counsellor to understand and diagnose what mental problem he has. After the diagnosis, treatment with medication, home remedies, stress counselling can be suggested. Counselling is a confidential and unbiased space for the client to talk and learn to solve their problems in an effective way without feeling too much tension. But, for any illness, eating a healthy diet, which is suitable to the patients needs is the first step. After that, exercising like walking, running, swimming is suggested for the fitness of body and mind. He might need some rest for mental, physical and emotional recuperation. I suggest that he could take a brief holiday to disconnect from his tensions, but later try to learn productive ways to either resolve or cope with his stress triggers.

These are examples of normal fear becoming abnormal due to the neglect of fear itself. Fear is good and is extremely useful to exercise caution where necessary. Somewhere and somehow you have been denying the fear and it has over a period of time developed into phobia. It is also possible that in childhood you may have had some traumatic experience and that has led to this abnormal response to fear today. Meet with a counselor and deal with your emotions to deal with the underlying causes. In the meantime you can learn to de-condition yourself off of the phobia by frequenting these places with a therapist and gradually working out through the experience the various reactions that you will go through. Over time you will find that your phobia is unfounded and learn to develop normal responses to these situations. Vigorous exercise, especially of the callisthenic kind, will make your heart, which is a muscle, grow larger; and then your heart will need to beat less often and you will respond to the phobia with a calmer disposition. This will give you an undue advantage over the phobia to perhaps bring it into the normal realm of fear. That, you can then tackle with aplomb.

She irritates too much and during irritation she starts abusing aloud with so harsh sound mainly when we stop to wash hand or even talk about it. She washes hand for a long than normally we do she is having fear about contamination and she always fears to health due to contamination, so to avoid contamination she used to wash hand to avoid it a lot. Anger is the worst condition of her behaviour since she becomes bully that time abuse badly and when she calm regret it. When she irritates she starts washing hand cloth and things around her vey cautiously and repetitively which irritate us badly. Sometime she occupied bathroom for 2 to 3 hour and before and after bath also washes hand in anger and when she calm down then only comes out and for all these irritating behaviour blames other. She always want to listen her favor in any circumstances. Always wants praise for self satisfaction. It has been occurring for more than two year but she controlled it herself two months back at much extent, but again now a days starting. Which disturb us badly due to her abusive behaviour. Sad part of it is yhat she never ready to accept that she is having problem and never want to get treatment due to felling embarrassment. So please guide us to overcome it if it can be treated online.

She is suffering from OCD, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, from what you say. It can be easily treated. Consult a psychiatrist for remedy. It can also be treated online, you need to take SSRI group of medications, there will be wonderful recovery. OCD is due to reduced serotonin transmission in mind and the obsessive thoughts of contamination, and compulsive hand washing occurs.

Dear , brain power is almost always same for every person. The difference is how you use it. The more you use your brain, the more powerful it becomes. It is like a diamond. Shines more, the more you polish it. Exercise, creative activities, number puzzles like sudoku, nutritive food etc are also good for brain. Take care.

Hello, welcome to lybrate. Com I can understand your concerns. All the problems you have mentioned are due to stress related hormonal disturbances. The best cure for it is to make her join a yoga or meditation classes. It will help to restore balance of the hormones inside and within few months she wouldn't feel the need of medicine. Also, the housewives feel themselves as worthless. That feeling also creates lot of internal disturbances. Make her feel respect ful and convince her to practice her hobbies and interests. It will help to elevate her mood and positivity. Ask her to take a walk of ten minutes before seeping. It will help in better absorption of hormones. This hormonal disturbance is a vicious circle. You treat one and the problem will erupt. Best bet is to make lifestyle changes and will definitely make you feel better. Keep up your care. All the best.

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

All About Paranoid Personality Disorder

Psychiatrist
Ask Free Question
Paranoid personality disorder (ppd) is a mental disorder which makes you feel fearful, nervous and suspicious about people or situations around. This disease usually starts to show its signs from early adulthood and is more common in men than women. People suffering from this disorder are unable to maintain close and long lasting relationships with people as they have the habit of blaming and not trusting other people. The most common symptoms of this disorder are:


Doubting the loyalty of others
Fear of revealing their own personal information
A tendency of holding long lasting grudges
Inability to handle criticisms
Abrupt instances of anger and instant reaction
Showing traits of coldness in a relationship
Having a feeling of always being right
Having problems in relaxing
Being stubborn, argumentative and hostile



Causes: the exact cause behind pdd is still unknown, but according to some medical researchers it happens due to a combination of biological and psychological conditions. Additionally, bad emotional experiences during childhood and having gone through a physical or mental trauma also leads to the development of the disease.
Diagnosis: this condition cannot be diagnosed at home and is usually diagnosed by a specialist. The first step taken by a doctor in order to diagnose the disorder is an examination of the medical and psychiatric history of the person. Additionally, if the health records of a person do not indicate anything, then the doctors usually go for some expert opinions by a psychiatrist.
Treatment: most of the people suffering from this disease are not even aware about it, until someone brings it to their notice. Doctors usually believe that psychotherapy, which is a form of counseling, is the best way to treat pdd.

Prefer keeping yourself is a dangerous thing. Be friends with others. In friendliness the severity of the problem may reduced. You explore your internal status with others. Then severity of the problem may become small. So please share with close relatives and friends. Take further steps for relax yourself. Change the place if possible or visit new places, temples, movies, do not be alone spend most of the outside. Create your entertainment channels. Do not think about past incidents. Be happy and be friendly all the time. Ok best of the luck.

There is a possibility that you might be gay. But just watching gay videos do not make you gay. So it is advisable to talk to your psychiatrist or a counsellor to know more about your own sexuality and get more clarity about it. It is very important for you to understand and accept your sexual inclination. If you are gay and are unable to accept it, it will be difficult for you to live heterosexual life. Please understand that, being gay is not a crime. Please seek professional help.

So, if you could manage all that hard work -- I am very sure you can manage your life as well.

5 Ways You Can Beat Depression Blues

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry

Discussions and consideration of ailments begin and end with those which pertain to the physical health of an individual. Matters of the body are inevitably prioritized over the matters of the mind. However it goes without saying that your overall well-being is as much dependent on your mental health as it is on physical health. However, there are few simple measures which can be undertaken to beat the depression blues.

Exercise: What works for the body may also work for the mind and exercise is a leading example of that. It is recommended that every day you set aside at least some time for exercising. It will not only benefit your physical constitution, but will also keep your thoughts away from the issues which are tormenting you in the first place.
Converse: It is a given that depression alienates people, drowns them in solitude. However, seclusion is merely a temporary refuge, one that can hardly benefit you in the long run. Hard as it may be, try talking to people and engage in conversations with people. In the course of the conversation, try putting into words what exactly you are suffering from. Reaching out for an extended arm goes a long way in recuperating from this condition.
Meditation: When you suffer from depression, you inevitably are, in the process, trying to grapple with plenty of tumultuous issues. It is imperative therefore that you find a way to calm your mind and there is no other way to do it than indulge in meditation.
Find a confidante: When suffering from depression, it is crucial that you find yourself a confidante. It is important to talk to others but it is perhaps more important to find the right person. Irrespective of your relationship with him or her, by all means find a confidante in whom you can unflinchingly confide.
Break monotony: Monotony not only triggers depression but in most cases, breeds it. It is important therefore than you break the monotony. If not a drastic change, go for small changes initially and try to change your daily routine as much as possible.
