I am 20 years old and I get easily irritated. Please help

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
I am 20 years old and I get easily irritated. Please help
Dear, 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. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

My brother in law is a schizophrenia patient. After my marriage i came to know that my father in law too had faced some problem before his marriage (details not know), two more first cousins have had stints of depression. Is mental problem hereditary? What are the chances of my children having such problems? Are there tests to check if the child is ok before the delivery?

MD - Psychiatry, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Delhi
Yes. A proportion of mental disorders are hereditary but as it is not autosomal dominant or sex linked genetic disorder it can not be predicted surely that the child will have it or not. Yes, definitely the chances are more than the general population, in which the family history is negative. No in utero test can determine about a child to get mental illness in future. There is a two hit hypothesis proposed by scientists that genetic predisposition plus stressors in life can increase the chances of mental illness to occur.

I am 39. Female. I feel always rejected by the society, can I find remedy?

PhD (Psychology), MSc Psychology, MS
Psychologist,
Dear, I think you are mistaking yourself. Why you should be rejected by society? is there any reason? society accepts only those who are acceptable to society. Society will not accept anybody who sits in home or being alone. You need to understand society. Enter into society, do good deeds, automatically society accepts you. Another important thing is that, when you do something good to you, your family, your friends, well wishers, office etc everything contributes to society. Please do not misunderstand. Take care.

You need to learn the" relaxation response" in times of stress and anxiety. This can be learnt in a step wise process only and with practice you can excel. Start with doing relaxation exercises like yoga and meditation. Also try breathing exercises for 15-20 minutes daily. Once you learn how to relax you will have to learn when to relax too. If you still find things difficult you might need help with some counselling and medications.

I have a chest pain last 4 days. I take so mch personal tension. Is the pain reason by tension.
Dear lybrate user, now a days every other person is having high stress levels. The changing life style, nuclear families, pollution, very demanding jobs, dissatisfaction in relationships are the major causes of stress. It is advisable that you share your worries with someone you trust. By doing this you will lighten your burden and also might get a different perspective about the difficulties in your life. At the same time, do not take chest pain lightly. The pain may be because of stress or any other physical ailment. Please get yourself checked. Consult a doctor at the earliest. Take care.

What is the severity of pain? is the pain continous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders.

Signs That Show You Need a Mental Health Checkup

Signs That Show You Need a Mental Health Checkup

Stress is very common these days due to the busy modern lifestyle and can cause symptoms of disorders of the mind. There are certain signs that foretell an impending mental problem, these signs should be taken seriously and a mental health professional should be consulted.

Some of these signs that indicate that you should go for a mental health checkup include:

1. Appetite disorder - Appetite problems such as loss of appetite or overeating may indicate mental problems. Moreover, eating foods excess in fat and sugar can indicate signs of stress.

2. Difficulties in interpersonal communication - Progressive reduction in interaction with people to no communication at all indicates signs of stress and a mental health professional should be consulted in this case.

3. Insomnia - Significant modifications in sleeping patterns or not being able to sleep due to stress for a long duration of time need to be addressed as they can result in complications.

4. Overactive mind - The overactive mind is a cause of anxiety where the mind is always thinking and thoughts race through causing anxiety and an inability to relax. A normally active mind is healthy but an overactive mind which can't seem to relax for extended periods of time should be looked into.

5. Lack of interest in activities - Showing symptoms were once fun activities seem worrisome and fearful can indicate signs of mental disorders.

6. Emotional distress causing problems at work and home - Inability to focus at work or everyday activities due to emotional stress can result in depression. Thus, symptoms such as these should be diagnosed at the earliest to prevent complications.

What can I do to avoid memory loss as I am growing old?

Advanced Skills in Counselling, BSIC, Advanced Trainee of Transactional Analysis, DCS, Hypnotherapist
Psychologist,
When we get older, some people experience memory loss while others have a very sharp memory still. You can avoid multi tasking too frequently. Learning to manage emotional stress like anxiety, anger and fear will also help to retain memory. Taking frequent breaks and relaxing is very important. Getting adequate deep sleep is of utmost importance. Physical and mental exercises which refresh the brain including yoga, deep breathing, meditation are of immense importance too.

I have been smoking weed (marijuana) from last 2 years, what are the effects of smoking weed? Can I stop smoking? How?

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
These are the following effects of smoking weed: SHORT-TERM EFFECTS Sensory distortion Panic Anxiety Poor coordination of movement Lowered reaction time After an initial “up,” the user feels sleepy or depressed Increased heartbeat (and risk of heart attack) LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF MARIJUANA Reduced resistance to common illnesses (colds, bronchitis, etc.) Suppression of the immune system Growth disorders Increase of abnormally structured cells in the body Reduction of male sex hormones Rapid destruction of lung fibers and lesions (injuries) to the brain could be permanent Reduced sexual capacity Study difficulties: reduced ability to learn and retain information Apathy, drowsiness, lack of motivation Personality and mood changes If you want to get off weed, the first step is deciding to do so. Then take a few steps in the right direction. Change your habits. If you hang around with friends who smoke weed, find other people to do things with who aren’t using it. Build yourself up nutritionally. This will help with the withdrawal symptoms. Drugs rob the body of vitamins and minerals, particularly B complex, vitamin C and calcium and magnesium. Find some activities you like to do, maybe something you enjoyed before you started using. Get out and see the world you’ve been missing in the drug induced haze. There are withdrawal symptoms when a person stops smoking marijuana. Since they are not as dramatic as heroin withdrawal symptoms, some people think they do not exist. Some people experience irritability, sleeping difficulties, depression, night sweats and loss of appetite. Some also suffer anxiety and fatigue. Some people can overcome these symptoms and get through it on their own. Some can’t and need help. Even if they get off the drug for awhile, they go back to it as they are still faced with the same problems and difficulties that led them to using it in the first place. Seek professional help.

Its better to life life anew, see people and events afresh. With regards, sajen john.

You should take mom to see a doctor and determine whether she has depression or schizophrenia and then get the right treatment for the condition. Dad is not doing anyone any favors by drinking as a solution and must seem in control of the situation. If mom is a passive smoker, are you suggesting that dad smokes too? The passive smoking is not the problem in this situation for mom. There are more serious concerns and you people must seek professional help and soon too. If mom has schizophrenia, then this involves long term treatment and a lot of adjustment from the others. Anyone else becoming dysfunctional or is using inappropriate behaviors to cope with the situation are all adding to the woes.

Life is enjoyable if one has positive attitude. It is also very important to have realistic expectations from life, from self and from others. No one can have" ideal" life style. If you have realistic expectations, there is lesser chance for disappointments. Please learn to focus on the plus points or the strengths, in every aspect of your life. For example, you need to understand that you are lucky, you have a job and you also have a wife. About the job you are not satisfied because your salary is less. Try to analyse why it is so, try to negotiate your salary with your seniors or learn some extra skills so that you can demand more salary. See if you can start some part time business, agency etc, which will give you extra income. About the expenses, decide your priorities then plan your finances properly. About your wife, try to have open communication with her. Understand that her ideas, needs, values and expectations are going to be different from yours. Please convey your ideas, needs and expectations to her. You both need to talk to each other about your feelings and also need to" listen" to each other. This will help in improving your relations with your wife. I can imagine, your work stress might be making you tired and dull. Try to go for some exercise or yoga/pranayam. It will give a healthy outlet to your stress. Once your stress is released you will be able to think rationally and not feel sad about every life situation. Life is a challenge for almost every other person. We need to make a choice - either look at brighter side of life and enjoy life along with its challenges or keep complaining about the things that are not available to us and waste your prime youth. If you can change your perception about life, it will be easier to live. All the best.
