Depression can be reactive, due to external issues like financial crisis and interpersonal problems or depression can be endogenous, i.e due to changes within oneself, which happens due to altered neurotransmission in the mind. Endogenous depression can be very well treated by antidepressants which restore the changes, kindly consult a psychiatrist and seek remedy. All the best.

Hi, I am very sad about my psychological problem that I get suddenly unconscious anywhere. Please advise.
Sudden loss of consciousness can be a symptom of underlying unresolved and untreated anxiety. You need counselling and treatment with medicines if required. Also you might need investigations to rule out other possible causes of such symptoms like epilepsy, anemia, brain lesions etc. Consult a psychiatrist for management. Consult me online for any other queries and assistance.

Steps to Keeping Your Cool and Saving Your Relationships - Tips by Relationship Counselor Shivani Misri Sadhoo

Post graduate in counselling psychology
Psychologist,
Steps to Keeping Your Cool and Saving Your Relationships - Tips by Relationship Counselor Shivani Misri Sadhoo
You may image or you might already have experienced this situation - one unfortunate day your best friend or co-worker or your partner tell you something insulting, hurts you, screams at you and you forget that moment that they might be suffering from a momentary mood swing or they might have miss-understood you and YOU DON’T WAIT and insult them back, scream back at them – risking, weakening or even destroying your relationships.

Relationship counsellor Shivani Sadhoo suggests that when we are under anger attack from our loved ones, the first instinct that works for us is – either to fight back immediately or getting shocked or surprised how to react – these two reactions generally make the situation worse.

The right thing one should practice is MINDFULNESS. That is building the ability to judge and understand the crisis situation first and then react accordingly. Here are some simple steps to improve your interpersonal skills and to save your valuable relationships in the time of a fight.

Identify your impulse that precedes your anger response.

When you get angry the moment prior reacting to our anger our body shows some impulse, i.e. sensation that rises up through our body prior launching anger reaction—these impulses are like - rapid heartbeat, feeling heat in your ears , raising your voice, clenching your jaw (different people have different kind of impulses). When you can pick up on these warning signs, you can give yourself time to make a deliberate choice. At that moment, you are practicing anger management.

Control the impulse.

The goal is to keep your body and mind in control if you're quick to fight, give yourself a time-out: shift your focus on your body instead. Concentrate on feeling the heat beneath you, then take long deep breaths from your diaphragm; try inhaling through your nose on a count of two, holding till six and exhaling through your mouth on seven.

Accept extreme anger is wrong

Many of us believe the expression of anger is a sign of strength or an instrument of self-defence. It is true to some extent BUT when anger gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to all kind of problems —problems at work, in our personal relationships, worsens our BP & heart condition and in the overall quality of your life. It can make you feel as though you are at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. Remember that unless we accept extreme anger is BAD no matter what we practice or think, we cannot improve ourselves and lead a healthy and happy life.

Hi, I can imagine what you might be going through, but there are certain things which we, as normal human beings, need to remember. As human beings, we tend to cope with constant changes, by building new relationships at different stages in our life. However the priority keeps changing continuosly, like for example, a girl before her marriage gives utmost importance to her family. Whereas after marriage, her husband and children become her top priority, and this is the dictum. Similarly for you also the priorities should change and should start building new and healthy relationships with your friends at study or work place and you should make every effort to divert your attention and these feelings of insecurity. Remember that the basic human survival mechanism is based on the ability to adapt to changes, the failure of which will lead to mental unrest. Try to keep yourself as busy as possible and be surrounded by as many friends and other family members as possible. If it seems impossible to overcome this problem, then there is more to this problem and probably it needs to be dealt by a professional, either a psychiatrist or a counsellor.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. I don't think there is anything to worry. The only evidence of virginity is he hymn. The hymn in young ladies get ruptured due to variois reasons like cycling, physical activities and outdoor sports. I don't see your boy friend will not be aware of these. Don't be apprehensive. I suggest online counselling. Feel free to contact me. Take care.

I have a anxiety problem and stress and memory and concentration problem for last 6 to 7 years. I got tension and shiver to speak when I got calls from company numbers, interview persons and stranger (officials) etc. Sometimes I tremble and shiver and forgot words and forgot what to speak with them. I got phone speaking problem around 15 years back when I call my brothers office, his manager picked the call due to network call disconnected and I need to call several time then that manager scolded me. That time onwards when speaking to strangers or any officials my voice shivers and heart beat raises. I feel so much anxious and feel tension before attending interview face to face or interview call and heart beat raises. Finally cancels my interview or disconnect/switch off my phone with out attending interview. Before interview or travelling feels very anxiety and goto urinate atleat 1 or 2 times and can not eat food. Even when I go to doctor before meeting him feels a lot of tension and forgets my problem which I need to tell even if I rehearse internally several times. I feel lot of fear and gets negative thoughts like if I drive I skids my bike and hurts or gets accident or what if bike brakes down when driving alone etc. Almost every aspect I get negative thoughts. I thinks alot unnecessarily and thinks about why I am think etc without my control. I cannot concentrate and I forgot very easily and unable to memorize my subject answers. Presently I am suffering with tinnitus in left ear for 4 years due to small hole in ear drum and urethral stricture for a year now. I completed my pg in 2010 with 80% score. Since then trying to get a job in software but due to above problems I did not get a job because of not attending interviews or forgetting words/answers in interview. How to deal this problem. Help me.

All things, how am I reduce my fear? How to stop negative feelings?
Simply keep busy in your services, listen to nice music and lectures, make vegetables and fruits your daily eating habit and drink cow's milk in night before sleeping. Stress is so all-pervading in this material world that everyone is tortured by it. Stress takes many forms. We are stressed by health problems, financial problems, interpersonal problems and many more. The solution for all varieties of stress is to understand that its underlying cause is bodily consciousness, the false identification of the self with the body. As soon as one realizes that he is not his body and that his real happiness is based on harmonizing his consciousness with the supreme consciousness,

I am 22 years old person studying in college. From my childhood I was not good in interacting with people. When someone come to me and asked something I couldn't reply in a good manner. So I didn't have that much friends. Anyway I understood I was not good in socially at later 16s. I started changing my self but there where any good results (some slight changes are there). I am always dreaming about past incidents as making my self good and find pleasure in it. I visualise the same in my mind repeatedly sometimes. I was good at delivering speech during my schooling and got many prizes. But at the same time very low behavioural skills. Now in my hostel everyone teasing me but I can't oppose them. If someone asked something in a tweezing way I get silent and failing to handle the situation and sometimes I hide from that persons. In my dreams I am OK but in real situations I am far behind. Please resolve my problems and suggest me some some ideas to overcome.

Dear Lybrate User. You have expressed the issues you are facing in a clear and lucid manner, kudos for that .You have mentioned you are good in public speaking and have won prizes for that, it shows you are bold and articulate. Rather than dwelling on the past live in the present moment and day to day. Make friends with those with whom you can share interests and hobbies. Ask your close friends and relatives what you can do to improve your inter- personal skills. If you feel you might require a language course / accent or soft skills training, go ahead and do a course for that. Take some time out and set up goals for yourself - long term and short term. Live your life according to that .Re look at your self and your situation objectively and make a plan accordingly. Enjoy life and all the opportunities that come your way and look at obstacles as areas where you can learn something new. Do write to me if you do want any further assistance. Wishing you all the best. With Regards,

Hello. The word depression has become so common in small things also when something is not happening as they want they become depressed. So one needs to understand the depression with it symptoms. Pls if you can give more details it will b easy to help u. Proper counselling is required. Behaviour modifications can be done. Metaphor therapy can be used but before the proper history is needed. You can start with yoga for relaxing your mind.

Your depression is due to your unfulfilled desire [ that your husband do not like you] . May be this is your thinking and things are not like that, Many men could not express their love to their spouse this does not mean that they don't love. Think positive and you will see that every thing happens according to you. Depression in mother affects the behavioral development of child. So try to expel this from your life.Do meditation daily. Divert your mind in some creative activities.

How to control anger?

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
How to control anger?
Although the senses require a certain amount of satisfaction, unless regulated they become like wild horses, forcing one to obey their whims.

Craving the objects of their satisfaction, the senses take control of the mind and intelligence, leading to frustration and anger when their impossible demands go unmet.

From this anger, delusion arises, and from delusion, bewilderment of memory. When memory is bewildered, human intelligence is lost, leaving one in a hell of irrational behavior.

As fever is a symptom of some disease in the body, anger is a symptom of ongoing material hankerings.

Just as treating fever alone will not cure the disease, treating anger without understanding it to be a symptom of lust will not extinguish the unwanted behavior.

To conquer anger, we must first ask how we shall conquer lust.
